Steve McManaman slated for condescending commentary on Liverpool 0 – Plymouth 0 [Tweets]

Plymouth earn a draw at Anfield

League 2 side Plymouth Argyle were probably just hoping to avoid a royal thrashing when they travelled 300 miles to Liverpool today.

The south-coast club travelled to Anfield today for the 3rd round of the FA Cup, and they were handed a boost when they saw the Liverpool team sheet.

Jurgen Klopp named the youngest side in the club’s history, with an average age of just 21.

Regular first teamers like Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson came out of the team, with a host of academy players taking their place.

That obviously blunted Liverpool’s attacking threat, and gave Plymouth a fighter’s chance, which they duly profited from by eking out a draw.

It means they’ll get the chance to host Liverpool in a replay, and fill their coffers with much-needed cash.

McManaman unimpressed

It was a historic result for little Plymouth, who as already highlighted, were on a mission to merely avoid a beating.

But ex-Liverpool man Steve McManaman wasn’t impressed in the BT Sport commentary box.

In remarks reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo on Iceland at Euro 2016, McManaman criticized Plymouth for their lack of ambition, seemingly ignorant of the fact that they were probably content with the draw in order to earn the replay.
