Glen Johnson


Regretfully I have to state that Glen Johnson has been pathetic this season. He has contributed very little, often is out of position leaving our centre-halves exposed, been beaten by fairly average players such as Yannick Bolasie and Yohan Gouffran. He is supposed to England's best full-back but we simply cannot rely on him any longer. For me, he has been the most consistent problem in our back four this season. The amount of crosses he has allowed to come into the box this season is unacceptable. The amount of players he has let dance around him this season is unacceptable. He is being played in excess of £70,000 a week, one of our highest paid players. He has to go? I'm sorry he just has to. He can call us all sofa-pundits all day long but the fact is that so many people can see that he is not doing what he is expected to. Liverpool fans? Are you with me? Who would you bring in the replace him?

I had the same opinion when he was at Chelsea. Occasional spark going forward but defensively weak.

Only player under brendan rodgers, that has deteriorated, hopefully we sign a right moving flanagan over nd hopefully andre wisdom has improved enough to be back for that RB position, because the sooner GJ is sold prob the better

I think he's decent, been getting a lot of unfair stick. Hasn't been at his best but hasn't been rubbish all season

@releasethekraken As would I, would be fitting for the Scouse Cafu go to the home of the real Cafu.

I have to agree. since he signed i've been a big glen johnson fan - over the years when people have said he 'can't defend' i've defended him. but this season he's been dismal. he hasn't always been reliable defensively - but over the years he's always had an attacking threat. this season he hasn't even been good going forward. he's been very unintelligent in the final third and most importantly has looked very casual in everything he's done. he's the first person i want out of the club this summer. on the whole he's done well in his LFC career, but he's reached the end of the road IMO. has to go. hopefully big sam will take him.

i probably wouldn't take him to the world cup either although i'm struggling to think of anyone to replace him with.
