Roy Hodgson, ever since his arrival from Fulham, has done little to endear himself to the Kop faithfuls.
Although everyone agrees that Liverpool were a team in turmoil when he arrived after a seventh-place finish last season, no one in their wildest dreams had expected Liverpool to be on only 22 points from 18 games, just three points of the relegation drop zone and below teams like Blackpool, Blackburn and Stoke.
Whatever be the crisis, the team definitely has more quality than the 12th place it currently finds itself in. Furthermore, after a dreadful start to the season, Roy Hodgson had famously rambled, 'judge me after 10 games.' Its time to say, Mr. Hodgson, it's now 18 games, and we have not seen any improvement.
Anfield, which was considered a fortress has been breached thrice this season, and not by top teams, but by newly promoted Blackpool, League Two team Northampton, and a team in relegation zone, the Wolves. Teams no longer dread the visit to Anfield but see it as an opportunity to get some away points.
The away form has been more dismal with just one victory and a total of five points from nine games.
Liverpool are on course to get 46 points in the season, the same as Fulham last season.
