Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Wilfried Bony performance v West Ham

The Reds watched on in frustration as the Swansea striker scored yet again at West Ham.

How could one team get something so wrong when they had so many options?

That's exactly what Liverpool fans will be asking themselves after Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony's performance against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

Yes, the Reds did not have an absolute wealth of forwards to choose from in the summer transfer market. But they could have made a bigger effort to sign Bony from Swansea. They also could have signed Loic Remy, who has already scored enough goals at Chelsea to make a mockery of Liverpool's current strikers.

In the end, Brendan Rodgers and the 'transfer committee' went for Mario Balotelli. And what a mistake that turned out to be.

Sure, the Italian could still come good at Anfield (although that is highly doubtful). Even if he does, however, will he be anywhere near a clinical as Bony, who finished with aplomb for Swansea at West Ham yesterday and has been consistently doing so in the Premier League during 2014?

Naturally, Bony's goal - which gave the Swans the lead in a game West Ham eventually won 3-1 - prompted plenty of Liverpool fan reaction on Twitter. And the Anfield faithful were neither happy nor impressed.

If nothing changes in January, Bony will continue to get the goals for Swansea. In the meantime, what exactly will Balotelli be doing?
