John Aldridge slams Liverpool

Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has admitted that the Merseyside club are in crisis, and feels the side are becoming a laughing stock due to poor form.

Kenny Dalglish’s men have only won two Premier League games out of 12 in 2012, with six defeats in their last seven matches a new record low for the team.

Aldridge feels that the situation is dire, and that a solution must be found.

“There is no getting away from the fact that Liverpool are now in a crisis,” Aldridge is quoted as saying in Mirror Football.

“The eyes of the world are on Liverpool and the critics are having a field day. We’re becoming a laughing stock.

“To lose six out of seven in the league is something the club won’t ever tolerate – we can’t tolerate that. To have picked up just eight points out of 36 since the turn of the year is shambolic – that’s relegation form.

“The fact that this is the worst run in the league since 1954 speaks volumes. Questions are being asked and they need to be answered.

“We’re all proud to be associated with the club and everything it has achieved over the years.

“But at the moment being a Liverpool fan is just embarrassing and that’s something I haven’t had to say before. We all know that we’re not the finished article but we’re better than what we’ve seen recently,” he concluded.
