Very UNFORTUNATE night for the Reds.
Aston Villa qualified for the League Cup semi-final, after beating Liverpool (5/0), during their match today, in the quarter-finals of the competition.
Liverpool played the game with a group of youth, as the first team participates in the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar.
The youngest ever Reds team to play an official game with only an average of 19 years and 182 days of age, the team included five debutants.
Neil Critchley’s team were unfortunate to go behind after a superb opening 10 minutes, the 4 Villa goals before the break were infair to the red youngsters on the pitch.
A full away end of arround 5000 supporters were there and kept chanting until the last seconds of the game, to lift the players moral but also to show respect to the fighting spirit they showed.
The first half showed plenty of talent from the reds, a lack of experience , and in our opinion a lack of managerial advice caused the game to turn against liverpool, but all in all we are more than happy with the performence.
In the second half the coach made some technical changes and gave insights to the team, that showed a very strong and organized play, an excellent second half is all we can say, very well managed the game looked very balanced despite the huge difference in experience.
The yougsters proved themselves worthy of the Red shirt, and an exstatic Harvey Elliot, giving signs of a new Messi, but this time from The Three Lions Kingdom.
The Reds' boss for the night said he was 'incredibly proud' of his young side's performance at Villa Park, and we only can be more proud too.
Cheer Up REDS, a very bright future awaits.
