‘Not good enough’ – These Liverpool fans slam ace’s first-half display vs Arsenal

Some Liverpool fans have taken to social media to slam youngster Neco Williams’ first-half performance as the Reds trail in the Community Shield at halftime against Arsenal.

The Reds’ best moment was undoubtedly Virgil van Dijk’s header that was chalked off for offside after a wonderful free-kick delivery from left-back Andy Robertson.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired the Gunners into the lead not long after with a superb strike, Jurgen Klopp’s men looked completely deflated from then and struggled to create chances.

Rookie Williams was beaten for Arsenal’s opener and it became quite clear that the Gunners were focusing their play down the full-back’s side, who is playing as Trent Alexander-Arnold is out.

Here’s what some of the Reds faithful had to say after the opening period of proceedings:

It’s a shame to see so much negativity towards Williams, but it is quite clear that the Reds may need to invest in a more experienced and proven backup right-back considering how key this position is to their attacking play.

The Anfield outfit have already signed Kostas Tsimikas at left-back to offer up a solid backup for Robertson and perhaps need to do so on the right side as well ahead of next season.

A more glaring generic issue may be that Liverpool’s central midfielders appear to lack creativity, they of course are stronger in other areas like their tireless work-rates, but this is an area that needs addressing.

    Will someone teach Robertson to cross with right foot great with his left rubbish with his right

    This team is too predictable! With Klopp using the same old formation and using the fullbacks as the creative outlet, teams now know how to play against them! Having already blown their chance at creating a dynasty with Werner, you would think Liverpool would now push on for Thiago. But no! They’re trying to play it cool but will end up looking stupid when another team swoops in for him! 27 million for a player of his caliber is a no-brainer! I do not buy into the notion that one of the richest clubs in the world cannot afford to buy this player when the likes of Sheffield United can spend 18 million on a keeper! Liverpool have spent very little in the last 3 transfer windows, should have money leftover from player sales, TV money, Champions League money and money from winning the league! What I cannot understand is why they just don’t approach Bayern and ask for staggered payments or incentive-based bonuses like the ones that they have allowed teams like Barcelona to do to them! I hope I’m wrong but I cannot see a repeat this season of league or Champions League glory! With Klopp confirming his intention to leave after 4 years, Liverpool would do well to do everything they can to win all they can while he’s there!

    Milner should give way to the young lads,William should also up his games

  4. Alan Phillips says:

    There were a few players who were poor today. Not sure if it is transfer speculation or people not in the right frame of mind after winning the prem. We will not be winning it again unless the whole team is pulling in the same direction. Klopp hasn’t helped with his comments about not renewing his contract. There does seem to be problems behind the scenes that need resolving. Let’s hope everything is resolved sooner rather than later.

  5. Ted Green says:

    keita should play every game at least he generates creativity, as for wynalbum he is invisible for 70% of the game and generates no creativity(obviously he is klopp favourite) unless livorpool adds to their squad some quality forget top four.

  6. Gray Davis says:

    Shocking comments from some fans, yeah I know we are entitled to our opinions but to slag off Neco is harsh I think he’s been superb in all the games he’s played so he was due an off day. This is the same squad virtually that won the champions league and the Premier league so to say we won’t make the top 4 give your head a wobble lad. Most frustrating thing is not adding to the squad with marquee signings whilst everybody else, if Liverpool can’t afford £30 million for Thiago then I think we are doomed financially
