My grandma could ref a game better than Atkinson and she's dead. Great comeback from the boys even though we were almost fully rotated. They showed courage and hunger the whole game. Mentality giants.
Damn.. did y'all see the traps on konate
He's a metric unit
That was a very tense end to the game. Southampton made that too easy for too long, and we struggled to be fluid, but overall, happy enough with that. Now I can only hope Gomez isn't out to miss the preseason. The poor lad catches too many breaks
Catches too many breaks in a literal sense.
Great result for Liverpool - able to rest their entire first team and still get the result. The quadruple now in the hands of Man City and the ex-Liverpool stars at Aston Villa. Bring on the weekend!
Konate is gonna be one of the goats, he needs to go to the world cup
Miles clear of Varane..
Varane’s only attribute is his medals
I've watched Varane turn into Maguire at United. Our fans don't want to talk about it, but he's been poor this season.
How reactionary is this….
Anyone without bias would think the same if you watch him every game he plays.
Just say he is great a lot can happen in a career
Come on Gerrard. Please take one for the team here.
By bending over for city. Thanks Gerrard!
konate is so good
Liverpool's title hopes now rest with Gerrard and Coutinho.
And Danny Ings!
"There was an idea..."
People actually think city will lose 😂
Nobody thinks City will lose. All we need is a draw and then a victory against Wolves to win the league. West Ham only had 20% possession and still managed a draw against City and the Liverpool match against Villa was not easy.
Liverpool are 1 point behind, a draw loses city 2 points
Don't be crazy no one thinks they will lose. A draw is all we need.
everton are shit
City should be 2 points less due to the handball
City thought they had beaten Madrid as well.
Ah yes because Aston Villa are on Madrid’s level
This is about City.
They're hoping to win the league, in the same way you're hoping to avoid relegation. Nothing wrong with hope.
A draw would do like the other day.
West Ham are miles better than villa
Villa have Gerrard. Man's known for last minute winners, guess you know all about it anyway.
Come back to me when city have won about 4-0
I definitely will but I am not sure I'll find you in the same league anymore.
We won Thursday and we are safe we would have won Sunday if we weren’t robbed
Well, the refs are atrocious - you were robbed against City too but you don't mind that too much, do you?
That was months ago this was worse because we were winning
Still, anything could happen. It's not like Liverpool could do anything but hope.
Tsimikas has done well all day really.
Villa have done fairly well against both Liverpool and City despite losing this season. I have a tiny bit of hope lol
I wouldn't have too much, we have an awful record against the mancs.
Perfect time to turn it around then!
why wouldn't any liverpool supporter have hope? people are so miserable
Liverpool players are such dirty divers
Toronto FC coming in with the expert analysis on football
Another flair based braindead comment.
Blame the ref for enabling it
Hate to say it but if Alisson and Ederson swapped this year City would have hardly lost a game.
Yeah that last goal kick really convinced me
you judge on a single goal kick? what intelligence.
You think I’m being serious, I think you’re the dumb one mate 🤡
wouldn’t put it past city fans
Ok there Delusional FC, pipe down now!
Lol. Eddies been pants at times this year tbh
Yeah but I’d like to see anyone take his position and do better. I think Mendy is better than both, but could also never play with our set up
Different keepers are better at different things aren't they.
Bar this season Oblak has been the world's best shot stopper for years but he'd be a downgrade for either of our sides. His style doesn't fit.
Southampton are pathetic just play like you aren’t on the beach like you are getting paid to do
Shouldn’t you be off preparing for the championship
No because it’s still in our hands
felt like after Liverpool scored they felt it was inevitable and gave up.
Wouldn’t mind if they had their full team but they didn’t…
Have you watched your team at times this season?
Come on Southampton, you where supposed to stop the chance of a Quadruple.
The quad is still on
FUCKING NEVER UNCLENCH
BYE MIKE DEAN!
YOU WONT BE MISSED
Is that who you think Mike Dean is?
That was Martin Atkinson reffing this one.
Yeah, my bad, him too
They can all fuck off tbf
Konate was class today
Man has had a total of 1 bad half this season. Absolutely going to be a dominant anchor of this defense for years to come.
Thank fuck this pricks fucking off at the end of the season
Fucking get in all up to Villa now
And we need to win our last game
thanks liverpool \*-\*
every single clearance going straight at a southampton player smh
Did Southampton just received a wired transfer from City in the 85th minute?
No, Klopp told Hasenhüttl to make sure no one suspects the match fixing. Little does he know Liverpool already has the ref pocketed
Ah, thats why he ignored the blatant foul leading to Southhamptons goal
>Little does he know Liverpool already has the ref pocketed
Oh that explains why Southampton took the lead through a goal that shouldn't have counted.
Go touch grass.
Why are they inviting them?
Konate is a unit I hope he gets called for france
"what an outstanding official he's been" outstandingly bad, sure
Konate has been massive!
So Southampton can play football
Klopp body language is very passive, I think. Almost as if he's conceded the title already.
Jesus some takes on this sub
Naw that's just klopp in general.
Man smiles when he concedes a goal in some matches.
His emotions don't make sense
That was unbelievably stressful. Hopefully the Wolves game is more comfortable.
I have a bad feeling Wolves will be a wall defensively
Nothing to play for, go home early boys, Put the kids out against us give them a taste of the big leagues.
Best keeper in the world
Oh yes he is no doubt
They started playing like possesed lol
It was offside, FFS! When the ball came in first time
Yeah I thought that was clearly off.
How can people say Liverpool doesn't get favourable decisions after that freekick? Lol
Southampton got a goal because the ref was fucking blind and didn't call the foul on Jota. Stop with this nonsense.
Did you see Redmond's goal?
Jota got fouled like 20 seconds earlier and it wasn't called. Shut up.
their goal is out of a foul yeah sure favorable calls
I’ll admit that was a shocking decision
Same for the Konate freekick at the end of the game
Because Atkinson did not call the foul on Jota before Southampton's goal.
At least choose a different match than today.
After a fucking free kick fuck off.
>This is *far* from over.
My man, it's the 89th minute.
Wasn the 89th when he said it.
Was the 89th when he said it.
Atleast redmond tried
Southampton doing fuck all for 30 mins only to make me nervous for the last 3 minutes.
Good man Milly
Can’t imagine the amount of brown undies in the away stand right now.
That's the trick, you just buy brown undies to begin with.
just march into any stressful situation with fully shat keks
that is also an option, but for my money, undies made from brown fabric would be my recommendation.
shouldn't be any since everyone should be clenching
Milner doing the necessary! Love him
Redmond's the only one that came to play today
He sounded like the wilhelm scream when diving to the ground
5 mins left and now they start playing football ffs
How funny would it be if Atkinson final game was Norwich v Spurs
Atkinson hates Jota for some reason
Jota like Sterling and maybe Bruno Fernandes are now well-known divers
Arsenal fan maybe?
If he’s been an Arsenal fan this whole time he’s got some explaining to do with his decisions over the years haha. Think he’s just a shit ref
You don't even have to score Southampton, just make them clench a bit
I’ve never stopped clenching.
That's my secret, cap
I don't like this Southampton pressure
How did Joe Gomez look?
I mean did it look bad? Like will he be ready for the final?
That’s a shame man. I’m a Madrid fan, but he’s a good CB it’s always a shame to see him fall to injuries.
The crowd needs to boo the hell out of this pitiful performance
This ref is a joke
He's retiring. He cares even less about your opinions than usual.
You care enough to reply and that’s sad.
Southampton is pathetic lmfao
It's so obvious the Southampton players want Liverpool to win
How on earth did you interpret this
Fuck this. It's 3-3 in the Sheff U / Forest tie
Get the ball back and just pass it round the back lads
This is pre-season friendly surely lol
0.1xg southampton? :D
Can't remember soton ever getting promoted they just sneaked in the cheeky scamps
Jesus some power, straight at Alisson though
Mahrez has got blood on his hands.
The pen was shocking as well
Really hope Jones doesn’t play outside of cups next season to be honest. Hope we buy someone to takeover for Ox/ Milner.
I bet that stung Ali's arms
Are Liverpool immune to yellow cards or something?
Everybody loves Liverpool
yes especially fabinho
Once again, the English fans are subjected to listening to Jamie Carragher commentate a Liverpool game.
He's completely neutral in all of his analysis of course.
Just like Tyler then?
Decent contrast to Martin Tyler tbf.
Man's probably got some dead Liverpool fans in the back of his car.
Southampton are now playing fifa 22 constant pressure
Jones, FFS! Sell him off in the summer. lost count the number of times he's held on and not passed to a better option. Fuck off with the shots and always keeping his head in the sand when receiving the ball
Atkinson, widely considered one of the worst refs in the league, is getting a job coaching PL referees after he retires this year. This is the problem with the reffing in this country. Most fans wants a shakeup of the referees, even just a few new faces, maybe even from abroad. But they're getting this incompetent clown to coach the next generation of refs, essentially resigning them to the same fate of being shit. It's all just a big self masturbatory boys club and it's fucking infuriating.
A good way to get better refs is to stop abusing them on every level of the football pyramid.
this is true, especially so of Sunday league and Semi pro footy. But it doesn't change what I said in the slightest
Of course, whether Atkinson trains them or not, the selection to choose referees from is absolutely tiny and certainly not the best possible ones.
Has Atkinson given us 1 foul today
Jones can't shoot.
Needs to stop shooting and pass
I would add: pass quicker.
No Yellows FC
That coming from a city fan is peak banter
There’s a difference between committing a small foul and stoping a counter with a nasty tackle and getting away with it 3 times
How has curtis Jones be this season. Has been kinda underwhelming whenever i saw him. Had some big promise after last season no?
