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.


AV48

Damn.. did y'all see the traps on konate


FridaysMan

He's a metric unit


FridaysMan

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


Phantombk201

Catches too many breaks in a literal sense.


fubbblin

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!


PYD--Gamer

Konate is gonna be one of the goats, he needs to go to the world cup


AV48

Miles clear of Varane..


PYD--Gamer

Varane’s only attribute is his medals


AV48

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.


ConfrontationalBloom

How reactionary is this….


Phantombk201

Anyone without bias would think the same if you watch him every game he plays.


ConfrontationalBloom

Just say he is great a lot can happen in a career


peace_97

Come on Gerrard. Please take one for the team here.


R1CkO556

By bending over for city. Thanks Gerrard!


Mediocre_Demand_5847

konate is so good


tsub

Liverpool's title hopes now rest with Gerrard and Coutinho. Hmmmmmmmm.


CircleTheFire

And Danny Ings!


aelfwine_widlast

"There was an idea..."


ConfrontationalBloom

People actually think city will lose 😂


HotPotatoWithCheese

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.

Usernamegonedone

Liverpool are 1 point behind, a draw loses city 2 points


Morguard

Don't be crazy no one thinks they will lose. A draw is all we need.


pjhaft

everton are shit


Sorrytoruin

City should be 2 points less due to the handball


ConfrontationalBloom

I know….


LateCumback

City thought they had beaten Madrid as well.


ConfrontationalBloom

Ah yes because Aston Villa are on Madrid’s level


LateCumback

This is about City.


iiEviNii

They're hoping to win the league, in the same way you're hoping to avoid relegation. Nothing wrong with hope.


rahulrossi

A draw would do like the other day.


ConfrontationalBloom

West Ham are miles better than villa


rishabh1804

Villa have Gerrard. Man's known for last minute winners, guess you know all about it anyway.


ConfrontationalBloom

Come back to me when city have won about 4-0


rishabh1804

I definitely will but I am not sure I'll find you in the same league anymore.


ConfrontationalBloom

We won Thursday and we are safe we would have won Sunday if we weren’t robbed


rishabh1804

Well, the refs are atrocious - you were robbed against City too but you don't mind that too much, do you?


ConfrontationalBloom

That was months ago this was worse because we were winning


rahulrossi

Still, anything could happen. It's not like Liverpool could do anything but hope.


fubbblin

Tsimikas has done well all day really.


PrincipledInelegance

Villa have done fairly well against both Liverpool and City despite losing this season. I have a tiny bit of hope lol


Rickcampbell98

I wouldn't have too much, we have an awful record against the mancs.


CircleTheFire

Perfect time to turn it around then!

Fragrant_Taste

why wouldn't any liverpool supporter have hope? people are so miserable


Trickybuz93

Liverpool players are such dirty divers


Alexanderspants

Toronto FC coming in with the expert analysis on football


Serpico_98

Another flair based braindead comment.


R1CkO556

Blame the ref for enabling it


iiEviNii

Bitter.


dstudgeismydad

Lol


shmozey

Hate to say it but if Alisson and Ederson swapped this year City would have hardly lost a game.


R1CkO556

Yeah that last goal kick really convinced me


pjhaft

you judge on a single goal kick? what intelligence.


R1CkO556

You think I’m being serious, I think you’re the dumb one mate 🤡


pjhaft

wouldn’t put it past city fans


R1CkO556

Ok there Delusional FC, pipe down now!


shmozey

Lol. Eddies been pants at times this year tbh


R1CkO556

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


Nabbylaa

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.


ConfrontationalBloom

Southampton are pathetic just play like you aren’t on the beach like you are getting paid to do


No-Pension4991

Shouldn’t you be off preparing for the championship


ConfrontationalBloom

No because it’s still in our hands


PocketSpurs

felt like after Liverpool scored they felt it was inevitable and gave up.


ConfrontationalBloom

Wouldn’t mind if they had their full team but they didn’t…


pricklywit

Have you watched your team at times this season?


jphw

Come on Southampton, you where supposed to stop the chance of a Quadruple.


jepayotehi

Lolnate


PurpleAki88

The quad is still on


JustAPigeon

And unclench


benzoo27

Never unclench.


CircleTheFire

FUCKING NEVER UNCLENCH


Sleezboe

never


Ptile

BYE MIKE DEAN! YOU WONT BE MISSED


TookMeHours

Is that who you think Mike Dean is?


CircleTheFire

That was Martin Atkinson reffing this one.


yyzable

*Martin Atkinson


Ptile

Yeah, my bad, him too


yyzable

They can all fuck off tbf


Rum114

fuck yeah


eddiengambino

Konate was class today


CircleTheFire

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.


OnOff58

Thank fuck this pricks fucking off at the end of the season


PurpleAki88

Fucking get in all up to Villa now


No_Song_Orpheus

And we need to win our last game


Erdnussbutter21

thanks liverpool \*-\*


WelpSigh

every single clearance going straight at a southampton player smh


tormarod

Did Southampton just received a wired transfer from City in the 85th minute?


R1CkO556

No, Klopp told Hasenhüttl to make sure no one suspects the match fixing. Little does he know Liverpool already has the ref pocketed


Morguard

Atkinson? Really?


Alexanderspants

Ah, thats why he ignored the blatant foul leading to Southhamptons goal


iiEviNii

>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.


mtojay

Why are they inviting them?


Fit_Head1700

Konate is a unit I hope he gets called for france


DumSperoSpiro

"what an outstanding official he's been" outstandingly bad, sure


DarioNoharis

Konate has been massive!


Serpico_98

So Southampton can play football


CudaBarry

Gg


fubbblin

Klopp body language is very passive, I think. Almost as if he's conceded the title already.


dstudgeismydad

Jesus some takes on this sub


hotelman97

Naw that's just klopp in general. Man smiles when he concedes a goal in some matches. His emotions don't make sense


iiEviNii

/r/ArmchairPsychology


MolicOnePGR

That was unbelievably stressful. Hopefully the Wolves game is more comfortable.


Space_Polan

I have a bad feeling Wolves will be a wall defensively


mrkingkoala

Nothing to play for, go home early boys, Put the kids out against us give them a taste of the big leagues.


R1CkO556

Best keeper in the world


rahulrossi

Oh yes he is no doubt


Ptile

They started playing like possesed lol


ShaunFrost9

It was offside, FFS! When the ball came in first time


wrboyce

Yeah I thought that was clearly off.


yesnomaybe01

How can people say Liverpool doesn't get favourable decisions after that freekick? Lol


HotPotatoWithCheese

Southampton got a goal because the ref was fucking blind and didn't call the foul on Jota. Stop with this nonsense.


RedScouse

Did you see Redmond's goal?


iiEviNii

Jota got fouled like 20 seconds earlier and it wasn't called. Shut up.


vadapaav

their goal is out of a foul yeah sure favorable calls


MolicOnePGR

I’ll admit that was a shocking decision


yesnomaybe01

Same for the Konate freekick at the end of the game


bufed

Because Atkinson did not call the foul on Jota before Southampton's goal. At least choose a different match than today.


rahulrossi

After a fucking free kick fuck off.


yyzable

>This is *far* from over. My man, it's the 89th minute.


arroiuqlu

93rd


yyzable

Wasn the 89th when he said it.


Rum114

92:00 actually


yyzable

Was the 89th when he said it.


ConfrontationalBloom

Atleast redmond tried


yyzable

Southampton doing fuck all for 30 mins only to make me nervous for the last 3 minutes.


FirminosShinyTeeth

Good man Milly


Spglwldn

Can’t imagine the amount of brown undies in the away stand right now.


CircleTheFire

That's the trick, you just buy brown undies to begin with.


saddom_

just march into any stressful situation with fully shat keks


CircleTheFire

that is also an option, but for my money, undies made from brown fabric would be my recommendation.


officerspicy

shouldn't be any since everyone should be clenching


ShaunFrost9

Milner doing the necessary! Love him


jepayotehi

Redmond's the only one that came to play today


Jimbeardy

He sounded like the wilhelm scream when diving to the ground


FootyFanatik

5 mins left and now they start playing football ffs


OnePieceAce

How funny would it be if Atkinson final game was Norwich v Spurs


the_studge

Atkinson hates Jota for some reason


zackya89

Jota like Sterling and maybe Bruno Fernandes are now well-known divers


ediaz768

Arsenal fan maybe?


big_mustache_dad

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


Kardinale

You don't even have to score Southampton, just make them clench a bit


Furu97

I’m clenching


wrboyce

I’ve never stopped clenching.


DumSperoSpiro

That's my secret, cap


Agatharchides

I don't like this Southampton pressure


bloppingzef

How did Joe Gomez look?


dstudgeismydad

Handsome


ediaz768

Injured


bloppingzef

I mean did it look bad? Like will he be ready for the final?


Nabbylaa

No chance


bloppingzef

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.


AxFairy

Thanks doc


forestation

The crowd needs to boo the hell out of this pitiful performance


TheDerdebian

This ref is a joke


dreadnough7

He's retiring. He cares even less about your opinions than usual.


TheDerdebian

You care enough to reply and that’s sad.


SubparCurmudgeon

Southampton is pathetic lmfao


arroiuqlu

It's so obvious the Southampton players want Liverpool to win


AxFairy

How on earth did you interpret this


PurpleSi

Fuck this. It's 3-3 in the Sheff U / Forest tie


PurpleAki88

Get the ball back and just pass it round the back lads


zackya89

This is pre-season friendly surely lol


mtojay

0.1xg southampton? :D


Major-Goat7100

Can't remember soton ever getting promoted they just sneaked in the cheeky scamps


jckfnckn

Jesus some power, straight at Alisson though


Bux84

Mahrez has got blood on his hands.


MrThunderbird90

The pen was shocking as well


fieldsoffate

Really hope Jones doesn’t play outside of cups next season to be honest. Hope we buy someone to takeover for Ox/ Milner.


Viremia

I bet that stung Ali's arms


Importion

Are Liverpool immune to yellow cards or something?


michaelc51202

Everybody loves Liverpool


zackya89

yes especially fabinho


SimplySkedastic

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.


wrboyce

Just like Tyler then?


InoyouS2

Decent contrast to Martin Tyler tbf. Man's probably got some dead Liverpool fans in the back of his car.


oldblueeyesF365

Southampton are now playing fifa 22 constant pressure


ShaunFrost9

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


loykedule

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.


bufed

A good way to get better refs is to stop abusing them on every level of the football pyramid.


loykedule

this is true, especially so of Sunday league and Semi pro footy. But it doesn't change what I said in the slightest


bufed

Of course, whether Atkinson trains them or not, the selection to choose referees from is absolutely tiny and certainly not the best possible ones.


PurpleAki88

Has Atkinson given us 1 foul today


Bux84

Yes


AntiChr1st

Yes 1


wrboyce

4…


highways

Jones can't shoot. Needs to stop shooting and pass


DarioNoharis

I would add: pass quicker.


R1CkO556

No Yellows FC


Ohayeabee

That coming from a city fan is peak banter


R1CkO556

There’s a difference between committing a small foul and stoping a counter with a nasty tackle and getting away with it 3 times


StreetIssue1983

Bit rich


HeyFreddyJay

Cry more


Which-Willingness-33

cope


R1CkO556

Delusional FC


mtojay

How has curtis Jones be this season. Has been kinda underwhelming whenever i saw him. Had some big promise after last season no?
