    'It's their cup final,' say the fans who haven't seen their team win the title since 1066.

    I didn’t see anything that warrants a red on Fabinho.

    Please let it be true. As much as it pains me watching City lift the title, the sight of Liverpool lifting it would be unbearable.

    Positive spin would be, At least Stevie G and Carragher never got to win it.

    tbf we handed them the initiative with the timid 2nd half tactics. we can take the piss all we want, but we are light years behind them, trophy winning wise.

    Last season a draw at 0:0 and at Everton was instrumental in them losing the league. I hope this result will put a dent in their run.

    I've never known anyone more deluded than their fans. It's weird as feck.

    "The usual shit of dodgy decisions, dodgy refereeing"

    That they can't see it's gone their way for so long is mind boggling. Or that the decisions were all correct, apart from a couple of yellows that possibly should've been (one for them equalling a red, and one or two for us).

    Not to mention they keep making out like the current situation is the norm and always has been.

    A proper odd bunch of people.

    Dont want to be a dick, but a point at Old Trafford being the cause of a RAWK meltdown seems like a bad thing.

    That's the bit that gets me. They've been well ahead of us for 2 years now and for Rodgers 2nd last year. I think they just want to throw all the insults at us that we give out to them even if it doesn't fit.

    I read the report on the match in the guardian and they were raging in the comments too. Apparently the refs are on our side and yet we're mid table.

    Ah, so it was racism that stopped them winning?

    Are you using the word “was” so you can do a follow up?

    I wouldn't mind the tactical change if we were at least 2 goals up, like we were the last time we beat them at Old Trafford, but doing it so soon just made the final score inevitable. At the same time, it's usually a miracle when we manage to score a goal, so maybe expecting another one was too much for Ole.

    He's actually a very good writer on Liverpool who has done studies on the bias of referees towards giving more pens to British players compared to foreigners.

    There's been a clear trend over the past few years proving this to be true.

    Edit to add that this applies to all teams and not just Liverpool.

    Double edit cos I'm forgetful. Also shows that foreign defenders get penalised for giving away more pens than their British counterparts .

    You're joking right? There's white text aplenty.
    Edit, no white text. This is utter tosh.

    His statistical writing would be worth a look if he wasn't so childishly biased elsewhere. We're talking about a grown man who tweets about Ole Gunnar Atkinson...

    It's honestly not tosh. The numbers back it up. It's not just a Liverpool thing either. It's leaguewide.

    Like a lot of fans he can tend to get a little too emotionally involved in the biggest games against rivals.

    The guy has a platform and an audience and acts like a hysterical child. He's an absolute whopper.

    It's very similar to the way I constantly see Liverpool fans react on social media, but at least they don't have the audience he does.

    People crying wolf over "racism" like this are actively harming the fight against genuine racism. He should be ashamed.

    Atkinson helped Liverpool last season: he helped Wolves draw with City (they scored with a hand-ball from offside position) and then didn't give a clear pen for a foul on Aguero at Anfield. Karma is a bitch.

    I can't decide whether Atkinson is incompetent or just "politically correct". Since Liverpool were leading with 8 pts, he thought that it wouldn't harm them too much if some 50/50 or even 60/40 fouls are not given. Thought the pen with which Liverpool won against Leicetser was a bit soft and the foul on Origi was soft-ish too. He exaggerated the contact.

    It'll be on his website, The Tomkins Times. Not sure if it's a members only article or not.

    I'm off to work now but will check later if you don't do so yourself .

    They've got used to having everything single thing go their way for a very long time now. One game where it doesn't and their fans, manager and deified journalists lose their collective shit. It's lovely and hopefully it continues.

    Exaggerated? He flipped into the air in the wrong direction like he'd been hit by a car. He had no intention other than to throw himself on the floor as the ball approached him, everybody could see that. Well, everybody except Liverpool fans.
