Robertson: “I Don’t Think The Fans’ Nerves Can Keep Up With Us”

Yeah. Thanks for noticing, Andy.

This is starting to get a bit ridiculous. Liverpool Men’s Football Club—a club that has definitely made a deal with at least four devils—staged yet another comeback in this weekend’s game against Aston Villa. Villa took an early lead, Liverpool missed approximately fifteen thousand chances (and had a goal ruled offside because Martin Atkinson hates joy), and then somehow managed to pull everything back with an 87th Robertson header and another Sadio Mané last gasp winner.

Robertson, who was overjoyed to score his first ever header, did express some sympathy for the fans’ fraying nerves.

“We are getting quite good at this!” Robertson told the club’s official website after the game. “I don’t think the fans’ nerves can maybe keep with us just now but we have scored a lot of last-minute and late goals.”

“Like we said last season as well, it’s all about the work that goes into pre-season and we worked so hard to get fit and we believe we can go right to the end, and we went 95/96 minutes today and that’s why when teams start to get tired we kind of find our second gear and we started getting good chances.”

“We just couldn’t put them away but luckily both of us popped up and you can still hear our fans outside! It was a big one for us today and we are just delighted to get the three points.”

It’d behoove the team to maybe start finding those good chances before the 85th minute of the game. For the good of all our nerves (and some of our livers). Hopefully, this Tuesday’s game against Genk is everything the team needs to remember how to score first and then hold on to that lead.
