Top four out of the question, but Liverpool can still catch Everton - John Aldridge

By Eamonn Lavery

Liverpool legend John Aldridge says that a disappointing defeat at the hands of West Brom has rendered a top four place unachievable for his former side. Finishing as the top team on Merseyside should now be the target, according to the former Republic of Ireland international.

Bay TV catch up with "Aldo" at an interesting (if depressing) point in the Reds' season - after a sobering 2-0 defeat by West Brom, and ahead of the visit of manager Brendan Rodgers' former side, Swansea. Both of those teams sit one point ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League.

Aldridge scored 50 goals in 83 appearances for Liverpool in the late 80s, and moved to Real Sociedad for 3 seasons before ending his playing career with a 7 season stint at Tranmere Rovers. His 330 career league goals is the 6th highest in the history of English football.

Former Liverpool legend John Aldridge, is making a return to Anfield on Sunday 17th February to meet and greet Reds fans before the match against Swansea.

John, who was not only an attacking legend at the club in the 80s but also born-and-bred in his beloved Liverpool, will be on hand at the Barclays Pingit Photobooth from 12.30-2.30pm outside Anfield ahead of the Swansea City match. He will be on hand to meet fans as they try out the new Barclays Pingit technology at its ‘Don’t Pass it, Ping it’ interactive experience.
