They just woke up in the last 10 mins and decided to win the League
Why play for 80 minutes when 10 will do.
The real madrid way
If you can’t beat ‘em, copy their style
KDB tightened his shoe laces after going 0-2. And then
It's 18/19 all over again except with double the heart attacks for City and double the heartbreaks for Liverpool
Same Top 6 order and everything
Holy shit and it was when Mou got sacked and Ole became the wheel
And now it's happening again with Ten Hag
Iirc Ole came in the middle of the season and didi a good part of 18/19, so not exactly the same dynamic
So Ten at the wheel!
At least we won 2 Cups this time around
*2 Cups so far.*
You just jinxed Liverpool
Y’all got the FA and Carribou. Still have a shot at another champions league as well
CHAMPIONS OF THE CARRIBOU YOU'LL NEVER SING THAT
More of an elk man myself.
How are you idiots failing to realise this comment is making fun of him saying "Carribou" and not the cup itself
80 minutes of foreplay, and then blue balls.
Comment of the day
What a match day
Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.
Seria A your turn
I don't think so, unless Berardi turns into prime Messi.
One of the best final matchdays in recent memory
Atleast it wasn't because we lost
Did what they could. Boys should have their heads held high.
You and Man City always fight to the very end
Yep great season and a CL to come.
That's going to be such a great match.
Pep won it in the worst way possible for Liverpool. Gave them so much hope just to take it all away in a matter of mins.
Pep is a grade A sadistic confirmed.
I think it would’ve been worse if they gave us a chance and we dropped points, which looked likely 20 minutes ago.
Yeah, this has more drama but City losing 2-0 and Liverpool drawing would have been beyond painful for them.
The fact that was even possible is still amazing honestly.
When Wolves scored I thought Liverpool weren't in any danger really but that time started to run out and you start to wonder.
That game was end to end and Wolves could have nicked another.
They had some proper chances as well. I remember 2-3 moments where they were in a 3-4v1 kind of situation. Especially one of them was dangerous but the attacker fucked up the pass and passed it too wide
I think it would've been worse if Man City lost 2-0 but Liverpool drew.
Or if Liverpool had the lead for 86 minutes, before Man City turned it around against Villa.
Opposite for me. This is fine. If Pep had left the door open and Liverpool bottled it … WAY worse. Stuff of nightmares. Also worth noting Liverpool was never in 1st at any point on live standings. Always chasing.
Bald fraud bald frauds again
Loves to fraud
Pep's City pulled a Real Madrid.
3 goals in 5 minute comeback
Do we have Pep raising an eyebrow on video?
Life, uh finds a way.
All Pep needs is 5 mins to climax
It’s still gotta hurt getting so close
Yeah, Villa just gave them blue balls while they could just lose in a normal manner.
Great attempt from Villa and Gerrard but Coutinho should have stayed on the pitch until the last 5 mins. Trying to go all out defence for 20 minutes against this City team was such a bad decision.
He is still a rookie manager. Rookie managers make this kind of mistake quite frequently.
Exactly. This city team is set up and trained for the exact purpose of breaking down parked buses. The teams that give them the most trouble are the ones that actually attack, which is part of why they struggle more against big opposition in the CL.
Yeah. Until Coutinho was on, Villa were parking the bus and counter attacking with two constant threats up top. With Coutinho off, they went full park the bus leaving just a lone striker up top freeing Rodri in the process. Was just a matter of time then.
The 3rd goal was just a complete lack of defensive concentration by Villa. 2 players should have cut off that deflection after the CB intercepted it. In stead, the lapse off and allow De Bruyne to get possession and get the through ball. At that level, you know you can't lose defensive energy when playing City.
You've just bottled a 2-0 lead against the Champions on the final day with the home stadium absolutely rocking. No wonder they lost all their concentration.
Coutinho scoring was truly nuts too.
Unreal how close it was, just like in 18/19
2 trophies and a CL final on the way. No Liverpool fan can complain.
When I look back tomorrow, yes. But right now, and given Villa were 2-0 up, I’m dejected. As they say, it’s the hope that kills you.
In a weird way I'm glad Salah scored when he did, i.e. when it didn’t matter. I really would have felt ten times worse had there been a moment of real belief.
Still gutted though. Bad enough my team went down, was hoping Liverpool could win the league in compensation. CL would be grand though.
Was never in our hands today anyway. Coming back from 2-0 down on the final day to clinch the title, hard to say a team that can do that doesn’t deserve it.
The craziest part is that at 0-2, min 75, it looked like they wouldn't even score one let alone three. Five min later 3-2. That Rodri shot and KDB solo before the assist were smooth af.
Yeah we can hate City all we want but it's a fact that they have a world class team and probably the best midfield in the world, people forget they collapsed against the La Liga champions and CL finalist, it wasn't against a bottom tier PL team. It was an impressive comeback, i thought they would definitely fold after what happened in the CL.
The grounds keeper must be crying rn, dude is gonna have to work 48 straight hours
Theyve done it again
Script writters being lazy as always.
What's the sudden obsession with pitch invasions in England?
You have to assume that no action being taken for the numerous examples of it recently, or at least no immediate action, is encouraging people to think it's a no consequences decision. ~~It doesn't seem like any Villa players were attacked today, but City fans tearing down a goal was embarrassing.~~
EDIT - Olsen apparently being attacked is of course even worse than the goalposts being brought down.
there were fair few who immediately came over to the away end to goad us lmao. incredibly strange mentality
What I find embarrassing about these pitch invasions (aside from the obvious) is these jabronis with their phones trying to grab selfies with the players.
Just let them fucking celebrate, man. Live in the moment, not for the gram.
I think City and Everton should be docked points for failing to control their crowd ;)
Actually, Gerrard said Olsen was attacked /:
Especially considering its their own field. I never understand what the obsession is with breaking stuff down like that
Every time we've won the league at home, we've had mass pitch invasions. Never had any issues before
Yeah people keep talking about pitch invasions like it's a new thing, but I feel like I've been seeing them all my life.
Props for not having a mental collapse
Not that it probably would have made a difference, but city really turned 4 minutes of stoppage time into 2 lol
And spent that 2 mins playing keep away at the corner flag
It was actually pretty impressive how well they did there. Foden and Jesus executed it perfectly.
Couldn't we do this against Madrid? :(
Yeah City tried to finish Madrid of, and Grealish almost did, no one knows what might have happened if they started shithousing instead.
As does any team when they need to.
Villa was wasting time from the beginning of the match until city got their third.
Blame refs for not stopping it. Players just do what they need to and can get away with
Thank you! Crazy that Olsen didnt get a yellow, he must have had the ball for several minutes in total! And everyone at Villa was wasting time like crazy
Villa’s keeper was also making a meal out of every goal kick from the moment they went 1-0 up but that wouldn’t have gotten as many upvotes :)
We learned from Real Madrid lol
Yeah you cant blame City at all. It's just a trend with officiating that bothers me. I know logically in most games the extra minute or two a big club stalls out of stoppage time wouldn't make a difference but when you know that the game should have been significantly longer it can make things feel anti climactic and cheap even when the right team wins
villa literally wasted like 10 min in the first half
Can’t wait for them to get Haaland next season…
I’m sorry Liverpool fans for us giving you hope. We should just had been smashed 5-0 atleast that would be better
Honestly you guys were fab today. Shame it didn't work out but you put in a proper shift.
Thanks man. My whole family is Liverpool fans and they blame Villa for Liverpool not winning the title.. No one expected us to fight like this against City, and tbf we did very well the problem is just that City is many levels above us, and it was shown when it mattered the most. Feel sorry for you Liverpool fans, but we tried.
How did you end up being a Villa fan out of interest?
I Cant exactly remember all of it. But i was an Arsenal fan when i was little, lets say about 11-12 years old (i’m 21 now) i am from Denmark, and i dont personally know or met any fellow Villa fans.
But i was just tired of Arsenal, i didnt even Care, i was only a fan because one of my friends were, and i always like to be a fan of underdog teams. I loved the colors of the team, and ofc how big the club actually is despite not being one of the top clubs now. But it all came down to when i watched Villa for the first time and i saw how amazing Benteke was. He made me fall in love with the team.
Been a fan ever since. Soon to be 10 years, and been to Villa park two times. 1 in PL and 1 in the Championship. Managed to watch all of our games last season on TV, as it is expensive for me to travel to England and watch
Interesting, thanks for your response.
That's honestly pathetic and I'm sorry to hear that.
It wasn't your responsibility to win a different team a title.
What you did do was put in a serious shift against a state-backed team worth so much more than your squad.
Hold your head high and tell those Liverpool fans to fuck off.
As a Liverpool fan whose roommate is an Aston Villa fan, you guys did all you could and made it a great game. Ultimately we did all we could. We can’t blame Aston Villa for that.
Haha as every Liverpool fan knows these days, it's the hope that kills us, it definitely would've been better to see you guys getting smashed instead of having them score 3 in 5 minutes to win the title, but you guys put up a fight against one of the best teams in the world so good job for that.
Yeah it is. On the other side i think this match could give your team hope for next season? You guys show you can scores against City, just need more discipline on defending.
You let us dream for a bit! It was a fun 80 minutes.
Useless stats I noticed that even Opta wouldn't be bothered about the similarities between this season and 2018/19. The "Big Six" finished in the top 6 in exactly the same order. City won the league by one point ahead of Liverpool. Chelsea finished third, one pint ahead of Spurs. Edit: Salah is joint top scorer with a player from a London club
Finn Harps flair. Never thought I'd see that here.
There go the goalposts haha
people moving the goalposts yet again smh
United fans and City fans jumping together with the trophy holding a banner saying "thank u Tevez"
Big up owen hargreaves
3 goals in 5 minutes the scriptwriters went crazy
Should’ve been more ET with Ederson down
Yeah it's not hard to see why players timewaste at the end when shit like this happens.
Luckily Villa looked like they had no chance of scoring at the end there.
Villa looked like they had already mentally checked out of the match
I mean, they _were_ asked to play QPR in the 10th anniversary remake of the movie.
Well yeah the match didn't matter to them at all.
They played pretty hard for a match that doesn't matter to them.
Villa couldn't even get it out of the corner, let alone have a chance.
Didn't seem like they were trying that hard either
It literally went: fuck around in the corner --> ball eventually goes out --> Villa long throw --> lose possession --> fuck around in the corner --> ball eventually goes out --> Ederson cramp --> rinse repeat
Villa were never scoring in stoppage time.
0% chance they would've scored, but regardless of how it affects the outcome of this game it's a pretty universal problem that refs don't actually play an appropriate amount of injury time.
It might be time for a stop clock when the ball is out of play. The time wasting only happens because players know that refs don’t add all of it back.
yeah, this is the bigger problem. Just because it didn’t matter for one particular game doesn’t mean it should be ignored.
Matty cash literally just stood and looked at jesus shielding it at one stage.
They were very motivated for that game, but I think that understandably wears out when you're having to dig the ball out of the corner for no real benefit
My man was fakeing his death there lmao
They played like 2 minutes out of those 4 lol
Always seems to happen in games. I remember when we played middlesbrough in the FA cup they wasted like the last ten minutes and the ref blew 10 seconds before time was supposes to expire.
Because there’s 0 repercussions. Most people don’t even bring it up, even though the time added is a minimum and hardly ever gets played
The way refs handle timewasting is an absolute joke. Doubt it made a difference but it just hurts the sport
It's just sad how the majority of refs don't give a shit about the time wasted in added time.
Yeah, tf was that.
Yeah like, Villa probably wasn't going to get anything, but atleast play the time, no reason to end it like that lmao
What a joke. He laid there for 2 mins and only 24 seconds added
27s. For ederson being down over a minute? Lol. Just as villa have the ball I think? Why do people time waste they wonder.
Foden was down before that. They basically didn't start added time til 92'
Ederson was down for 2 minutes. I don't like it when something like that gets rewarded.
I don't think that Aston Villa would have scored but still.
Embarrassing from the ref to ignore the 2 minutes ederson spent on the ground
The keeper was time wasting the whole gamr and didnt get booked.
He was down for over a minute
2 full minutes
1:40 by my count
fuck. that's terrible
On a side note, The Premier League decided they wanted to give an award for the best comeback. Spurs were frontrunners to win it and city have somehow snatched that small chance of spurs winning an award. That is the most spurs thing to happen lol.
Surely Everton snatched it first
Not a chance, its based on win likelihood data, Spurs win it by a mile
If it's just based on win likelihood then Norwich must have gone close from any of their five wins.
how broken must your defence be to allow three goals over 5 minutes
WHAT A MATCH
What a way to win it
Blinked once and City scored 3
Three goals in five minutes! Truly insane!
Quadruple avoided. Im going back to the deepest cave i can find because i feel physically and mentally ill jumping around for City fucking winning. All the best lads
Man City winning the title being the highlight of Man United's season is really something.
Really takes some of the edge off seeing Man U fans having been brought so low that they're celebrating City results.
I wish I could go back in time to the 2010-11 season and tell my past self about comments like this and that it's going to be ok
I know right. It’s like celebrating getting kidney stones because it turns out it’s not cancer.
Not getting cancer is definitely worth celebrating though
Well exactly, but you’ve still got to groan and go “fucking kidney stones eh”.
Yep. Now it's up to Madrid to keep us relatively sane.
Man United are the new Everton confirmed
West Ham had just one thing to do and they bottled it. Would've loved to c Utd n Ronaldo in Conference Cup rather than Europa.
United fan jumping around celebrating a City win. What a time to be alive.
All that after we had to be bailed out by Brighton for a Europa league spot, what an embarassment
I hate myself
And no 20th. Could’ve been worse
At least it'll be easier to support Real
This is so weird this day went from absolute worst nightmare to all that I wanted and we fucking lost a game.
I genuinely forgot we were playing for a moment.
We didn't. Some guys took a stroll on a fotball arena wearing Manchester United jersey's, but they didn't play.
Fair play, came back from 2-0 down to win it. At least we did not lose it because of our own mistake.
Congrats, baldy. Fuck you and see you again next season.
As a Liverpool fan, I knew this was the most likely outcome, but still my eyes did water up a bit. Good race City. Looking forward to the next one.
KdB is one of the greatest players of all time at this point.
I just hate that I was lied to when I was told I’d never see it again back in 2012.
As close as this was to the real thing, I swear, you’ll never see anything like *that* ever again. So I hope you watched it, drank it in.
3-2 plot armour too strong for man city
Fair play to City, that was a hell of a comeback.
Now I’m going to go cry in a corner for a few days.
Congrats city fans time to take a deep breath
4 titles in 5 years. Farmer's league this is. Shaking my smh
What tier is this source? Seems unreliable
Spain, but the 'S' is silent. GG City. Well done.
Fucking Asston Villa conceding 3 goals in 6 minutes. Fannies.
They did also score 2.
Unfortunately Liverpool lost, but it may have been worth it just to see Manchester United fans throw away what little amount of self respect they had remaining by openly and loudly cheering for Manchester City. On to the CL final.
Mate they got beat 4-0 by Brighton....they have none left.
I'm sure united fans forgot their team play today and focuswd in Liverpool.
I watched the city/pool and Leeds game. Why on earth would anyone want to watch a dead rubber against Palace when you could watch decent football on the final day.
Man it really sucks to lose the league with 90+ points again. But I'm proud of the team running it to the wire. This season had a 'City walking the park' written all over it in January, but ended on a banger instead.
I'm afraid though that City's going to edge it in the coming seasons too. They're an oil club, but a very well run and efficient one, unlike a certain other oil club. They're making all the right buys and have a fantastic manager that wants to stay. I don't know how long LFC can stay as competitive.
But oh well, we go again next season. At least we have another Saturday to look forward to though.
What an incredible season fought till the end. Never have I felt so sick during a game. Well played. On to the next season. Can hold our heads high what an incredible two sides.
Fair play. 3 goals in 5 mins to win the league. After 38 games that’s nuts.
The thing that pisses me off about this is quite simply that, over the 5 seasons we have been going toe to toe with City, they have 4 titles to our 1. 1 Point behind for 5 seasons and we don't have the reward I think we rightly deserve.
Fuck this one hurts.
This is actually the reason, I as a chelsea fan, don't feel very bad that we haven't challenged for the league. I couldn't survive coming so close and not winning. Losing tight cup finals is painful enough.
I can't believe Villa bottled that... Would've been so insane
We tried, now on to the UCL final.
City won the league and this thread is full of people that only care about liverpool not winning it.
Tbf with Haaland playing for City next year, this year felt like the chance to stop City. It’s going to be even harder from now on which is nuts
Pep’s injection of Zinchenko and then Gundo a few minutes later may have been the greatest manager’s subs in Premier history from a pure results standpoint. The aggressive run and serve of Kevin D was total greatness on the winner.
Mark Goldbridge celebrating City win was the most disappointing thing I saw this season. I am not a United fan but if I saw one of my club people celebrating a big rival winning the League and that too City with money power, I would be pissed
We lost 3-2 away to probably the best team in Europe and apparently that’s shameful.
Get a grip people.
Na, everyone was just too hopeful. Had you not been up 2 for a good part of the game no one would have had their hopes up this much. You did good but it's crazy how they put 3 past you in under 10mins it stings like hell so you will read people losing it
Football, bloody hell!
Whistling at the 94:30th with 4 minutes added when Ederson faked an injury for 2 mins? Thats bollocks.
I am indeed salty.
