Roy Evans reacts on Twitter to Liverpool fans' 77th-minute walk out

The Reds faithful walked out in their thousands - and they have the backing of one of their former managers.

Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans believes the fans have every right to protest - with supporters duly doing so against Sunderland.

To highlight the fact some ticket prices will be as high as £77 at Anfield, fans walked out in the 77th minute against Sunderland.

They happened to be 2-0 up at the time but Liverpool capitulated after the walkout, ultimately drawing 2-2.

The fact the players collapsed so soon after the fans left in their droves proves the exact point supporters would have wanted to get across.

Without the fans, the team is nothing - and that is particularly resonant at a club with as strong a following as Liverpool.

The only problem, however, is whether FSG will listen. Unfortunately, history suggests they won't, while those blind to reality will simply criticise Reds fans for costing their club two points (when that was simply yet more evidence of the standard of these players and Liverpool's poor recruitment).
