'Our team is dying': President of Namibia weighs in on Liverpool form

The President of Namibia is the latest to weigh in on the terrible form at Liverpool right now. He’s not happy.

Hage G. Geingob, the current President of Namibia, isn’t happy with Liverpool right now. He believes the team is dying.

“We the supporters of Liverpool have been walking alone for a while now,” he tweeted. “Sadly, we are becoming orphans because our team is dying.”

Geingob posted the tweet after an acknowledgement of Namibia’s growing links between themselves, the state of Qatar, the Republic of Bangladesh, and the United Kingdom.

He later hailed international women’s day.

What RTK has to say

Well, the form certainly isn’t good. This is now six back-to-back home defeats. The previous Liverpool record was four, back in 1923.

And the Reds don’t appear likely to turn things around anytime soon. They’re struggling badly for goals, while the problems in defence are obvious.

Liverpool have a serious injury crisis, of course. Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are all out for the season. They were the only senior centre-backs for the season.

Liverpool now have four natural centre-backs to pick from – Nat Phillips, Rhys Williams, Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies. We’re yet to see the latter, however.

But this crisis doesn’t explain the awful goalscoring. Liverpool have just one Anfield goal in 2021 and it was a penalty. They’re just blunt and it means squeezing one past their make-shift defence is enough to win.

President Geingob’s official statement didn’t shed light on whether he sees these as problems himself, or whether he thinks there are worse underlying issues.

The age of the squad is certainly a concern for instance. Liverpool will surely require a refresh in the summer.

President Geingob believes the team ‘is dying’, in fact. Now, they’re not that old – only approaching their 30s – but that it’s a worry at all is telling.

Is sounds as though President Geingob wants to see a significant summer turnover of playing personnel. And it might be tough to argue against him.
