It may finally be over for Liverpool. Suarez walking off in tears- they threw the game away, totally gutted =/
They were gunning for superior goal difference and it backfired. Getting a little greedy is never good when you usually have issue defending!
So true - all the credit to CP and their fans for not giving up. Fingers crossed Villa do something spectacular to City tomorrow- thought I wont hold my breath.
Lulz called it yesterday. Palace not to be underestimated at home. It's over now, City only need a win and a draw
Title challenge over for Liverpool, I think so. They need to get to work defensively if they are going to try win the league in the next few seasons. They have only been saved by how much they have scored this year, their defense has been rocky. Bring back reina to compete with mignolet too.
Its the way they been playing throwing everybody up the pitch to try and outgoal teams and it seemed to be working for most games. It lead to Suarez getting the golden boot (no way hes not now) and them getting a ton of goals. But its also had the side effect of them leaking a ton of goals.
Some of the defending has been rubbish as well. For one of the goals above Skertel stepped out of the back four and got lobed to a player he should have tracked. Goal for Palace. Just stupid defending.
In the grand scheme of things no one prior to the start of the season gave Liverpool a chance. The "goal" was to break into the top four. They've been there the entire season and then challenged for the title to the very end. I'm really proud of how they not only exceeded expectations but defied logic in their play. If anything fans need to remember the project that Rodgers is undertaking with Liverpool is ahead of schedule big time. He turned the team from a mid table side to a top club in England. Bravo to him and all those who were involved.
This time of the season is where experience, cool heads and the strongest winning mentality, takes the prize.
Liverpool got greedy and tried to get more goals, they should've just seen the game out and kept the pressure on City, it's all over now.
Like I said, it will be a long time before LFC are in the running again. Utd will be back next season and will spend big; City and Chelsea will spend a fortune like they always do. Real will be sniffing around Suarez, especially if they lose the CL final. Been a strange season all round, cant wait for normality to resume next season.
"it will be a long time before LFC are in the running again" - I seriously doubt that. Utd won't be back for a while. Who are they going to get that will change their fortunes so rapidly with no CL football and Rooney on £300k a week? They set a bad benchmark for wages. Spend big all you want, it doesn't guarantee anything. Look at Spurs and Chelsea. Liverpool have shown this year that it is a good attitude and quality football that gets the results. And besides, do you think Liverpool won't be strengthening in their weaker areas? Particularly defense. Luckily for Liverpool that seems to be the only part of the pitch were they need reinforcement. Utd were champions last season with the same players so it's hardly spending wads of cash that will get them out of the rut so easily. The players just needed a kick up the arse this year. It's pretty sad when you have to revert to spending shit loads of cash to win anything.
Yes yes I hope United do splash the cash, and then fail to get CL again. Let the debt mount up, got rid of agent Moyes too soon though :(
This one has to go down to the senior players and manager because there was no way in hell they could overturn that goal difference, it just wasn't possible. The win was enough because then if City somehow dropped points and only drew Liverpool would win the title. Gotta congratulate them on some amazing football this year
liverpool might as well help suarez pack his bags. finishing second is not an option for him. he knows he should be winning trophies and with liverpool its just not happening. he isnt getting any younger and big teams are gunning for him. he should really move away and try his luck at a bigger club than liverpool. sad for liverpool fans though. must be gut wrenching. whole season you were there with hope that you could win the league only to be thrown away second last match of the season.
wow...talk about folding in the final moments, its all city's now i have nothing against liverpool but watching suarez cry under his shirt after the match was....interesting
The irony when Liverpool's fans abuse opposition teams defenders.
They are going to be kicking themselves if City draw one of their remaining two games, you need brains to win a title not just attacking flare.
