FA Cup: Toon Advance
Liverpool were eliminated from the FA Cup today after Newcastle outplayed them 2-1 to advance on, piling the woes and pressure on Reds boss Jamie Carragher
In addition, the Anfield club will be stripped of one of their best players Lucas Leiva
for their upcoming Premier League match against Fulham, as the Brazilian midfielder picked up a red card for a harsh challenge on Toon midfielder Yohan Cabaye
With Liverpool now lingering in 6th place and being out of their only two cup competitions this season, the pressure on Carra has really started to come on, with rumors around Merseyside reporting that owners Fenway Sports Group are losing their patience.
It was always going to be a tough road for the 35-year-old. With Liverpool being his first job in management and having no managerial experience prior to taking over from Brendan Rodgers
, Carra's poor results have not surprised many.
"Perhaps it is for the best if Jamie resigns," said Gary Neville, speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports. "He is still young. He can learn more about management, before diving into another job. Taking charge of a club like Liverpool as your first job is not very ideal.
"I'm not saying the prestige of the club is too huge for a first-time manager. I'm saying that the team and the squad is full of shit, and any first-time manager, heck, any manager at all would find it hard to deal with life there."
Neville will almost certainly be sued by Liverpool and sacked by Sky Sports for his comments.
The rat-faced retiree aside though, will Liverpool persevere on? Will the owner of everyone's favorite Scouse accent be without a job by the end of the season?
We must wait and find out.
