      The amount of vile coming from bitters fans on social media today is incredible and on radio. Seems no one wants us to win anything. Even that baldy c**t guardiola saying media and refs would prefer lpool win fkn mind games the c**t. So everyone wants us to lose they prefer a club dripping with oil wealth who have spent billions like barca and Madrid to buy the best players devolop no young players flout financial fair play and still want them to win. F**kin joke. Wankers lot of them.

      I have really been taken a back by the level of ant-Liverpool sentiment amongst the other fan bases. It almost seems to on a par with the anti united sentiment that was out there when they were winning the league every year. I’m just biting my tongue. If and when we ever win a title I will become as unbearable as I keep hearing LFC fans would be should they win the title.

      A draw last night which seemed so likely for so long till kompany hits a shot that even he admits he never would score in a hundred has prob cost us this league. If city drew wolves were guaranteed European football and could not better 7th place either. So nothing to play for them on final day. I just don't no what we have to do to win a fkn Premier league. Then that open goal miss at the end. I woke up this morning and thought no its just been a bad dream.

      I think its jealousy and fear, OK we've not a great haul of trophies over the last 15 years or so but look at Anfield on big European nights no other English clubs generate nights like those coupled with our global support, most of us from the City or like myself within Merseyside won't be that bothered about it but not many other clubs can fill stadiums in Australia, America and Far East.
      The fear more importantly comes from the way we've kept pace with multi million pound squad in City.

      We will beat Wolves and hope that Brighton frustrate the hell out of City.
      If Brighton just sit back and don't attack city will eventually break them down with one jammy goal probably 5mm over the line. They do just enough. With Bernardo Silva who think been there best player agueeerooo sterling sane they have so much attacking talent if you sit back and invite them on there hard keep out near impossible for 95 minutes say. Brighton need have a go rough them up play act do what the big boys do. Crowd right behind them. I can just see them city wankers scrape another 1-0.

      Liverpool 0 Man City 0  & Man City 2 Liverpool 1,  these 2 results have most likely cost us the League title. Few teams are able to take all 3 points from our main rival and the onus is on us to do so and we failed in these 2 very vital games. If we have broken even on points in the two games, we would have been ahead of them by 2 points now. I felt at the time that our loss away to Man City that day will come back to haunt us at the end of the season. Ouch! the opportunity missed to be the Invincible for a whole season and winning the Premier League to boot ............ and the revenge for 2013/14 season.

      Yes 97 points is a disappointing return isn't it!!
      We have massively over achieved this season, got more points than we probably deserved and yet we lose.
      We can only hope and pray for this City team to weaken next season(s) because at the moment they are like PSG, utterly dominant.
      Points don't go down in record books, unless counting the record holder for highest points runner up. Reviewing the season, awful in domestic cups, good in CL. Excellent in the league... but no trophies again. That's the harsh reality of it, barring a miracle. You said we have overachieved, how is that when we didn't win a trophy?

      I'd rather be forth in the league and win FA cup than 2nd with nothing.

      we over achieved because we have overturned a 25 point deficit from last season.

      This is just the start for this team.

      But we’ve seen how hard this has been. Let’s face it, we’ve had a lot of good fortune. And a pretty decent run with injuries. It’s clearly not the end, this is a brilliant team. But we’ve no idea where this will go. Gotta think in the dressing room they’re throwing there hands up and saying wtf are we sposd to do if THIS isn’t enough.  198 points in 2 seasons city are heading for. That is absolutely unbelievable. I thought there’d be a drop off from last season, but the fact they’ve kept going is a joke.

      Not for me. I will take this season with no trophies every day of the week and twice on Sunday against 4th with a FA cup.

      The enjoyment this team has given me through out the year ranks very high against a season where we stay 25 points below the leader, scrap for 4th in a 4 horse race and wondering if we will be 4th come end of season, go to cities we have never heard of on thursdays to play.

      A lot of those points are due to Allison. Having a goalkeeper instead of a wet paper towel is a massive difference.

      I agree with this, where does this hatred of us come from, were we complete tw*ts when we dominated in the 80's or something?

      How someone can favour a filthy oil rich plastic club over us is quite bizarre, especially when we haven't won for so long and have been the underdogs this season.

      and what makes that worse is that we were millimetres form getting the first goal at the Emptihad and that c**t Kompany should have been sent off for fouling Mo. On the other hand they should have won at Anfield, that was a poor game from us.

      We have overachieved in terms of getting to another CL semi final, by getting 97 points, think about that Rib that means we have only dropped 17 points all season, that is stunning form and would have won us any of the other leagues in Europe, it would also have won us the Prem in all other seasons except in the last one.
      We have nothing to be critical about, we will not get 97 points next season, we just have to pray that Citeh get even less than us and have some kind of dip in form otherwise they will win for as long as they want to and football will die because what will be the point when you can't hope to win.

      No reason why we won't get another 90+ points again next season, the current squad is capable of it and has done so, and will strengthen further during the summer. Whether 90+ will be enough then, is another matter.

      As long as Pep is in charge over there, 90+ points will be the new standard for us and everyone else to match.

      I call luck things like massive offsides at West Ham.
      Admittedly Man City this season literally had a goal where the referee overruled the linesman on an offside which I’ve never seen before.

      Yeah I think it was the 70/80s. Success breeds jealously, that's just the way life is unfortunatly. No different from United doing it in 90s & 00s

      Trouble is Blackburn with shearer and Sutton sherwood  etc well a lot better team than Brighton. West ham had sum really good players too. Brighton wouldn't be in that league. I think city will dominate the match Brighton will lie back invite pressure and City win 1 or 2-0. That's my prediction. Hope I am wrong and when I come in turn on my phone to BBC sport the big headline will be
      LIVERPOOL TAKE A FIRST PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE. PLEASE SOMEONE UP THERE MAKE IT HAPPEN.
