Not only have they lost their best forward and failed to make a marquee signing this summer – with lots of players arriving but no one of real note, they now have to face the fact that they have Glen Johnson as their right back for yet another season.
Whilst in seasons gone by, you could easily hear how fans felt from the chants in the stands, these days the football faithful take to social media to vent and indeed commiserate.
We all remember the Tom Cleverley petition, the Fernando Torres virals, and now it seems that Johnson is the latest victim of internet trolls, with Liverpool fans making it very clear just how they feel about him and what they think should happen to him ahead of the new season.
Here are the best tweets we found on social media:
‘I still can’t understand how Glen Johnson steals a living as a professional footballer.’ Via @jonpayne61
‘Liverpool need a quality striker. -Does Gerrard inhibit the attacking prowess of others? -Reina should stay -Glen Johnson is still crap’. Via @centrocampista
And our favorite from @jamie_kop: ‘After tonight, I hope we can all agree on one thing. Glen Johnson’s best position is left back . . . . . . In the dressing room.’
Liverpool fans. Just what would you do with Johnson? Is he even good enough to be on your bench? Let us know your thoughts below or tweet us @LaFootyettes.
