Liverpool fans have been vocal on social media following their exit in the FA Cup semi-final against Aston Villa as the Reds were outclassed for 90 minutes at Wembley.
Coming into the game as massive favourites given the distance between the two sides in the Premier League table, Aston Villa rose to the occasion to dismantle Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers’ side took the lead early on with Philippe Coutinho’s deflected effort – against the run of play it must be said. However, Villa were not disheartened and a quick response from Christian Benteke settled them down. From then on, it was all Villa and man of the match skipper Fabian Delph eventually netted the winner.

For Liverpool however, serious questions must be asked of a squad which was reinforced significantly in the summer with over £100m worth of signings (via Daily Mail). The pressure will no doubt mount on Rodgers and fans on Twitter were already initiating their own inquest.
Here is the best reaction on Twitter:
A few Rodgers out tweets. Wanting Klopp now.

Think it’s time for Rodgers to go, today was just pathetic

As I said I’m not Rodgers out but currently not arsed if I’m honest. This season has been a disaster. £200m+ spent in 3 seasons as well.

Brendan Rodgers thought Gerrard was, “excellent today.” I realise that he’s obliged to back his captain, but Christ…

I like Brendan Rodgers you can’t help thinking; will the #LFC board be wondering about a 47 year-old soon to be out of work German manager?

That’s not acceptable, Rodgers time is up!

Dreadful, abject 90 mins at Wembley. But the solution isn’t Rodgers out, it’s better recruitment. More goals and more experience
