      Salah's chance goes in and its 1-0 different game. They are tough to beat at home so no gifted goals, massive fan of Gomez, but to concede the penalty, was not his best moment, actually thought we played some good stuff, just one of those nights. They won the battle but we won the war, and they are still 20 points behind 😂

      No I disagree, I think City would have won this game anyway, they were much sharper in attack all game and our defence had a collective sh*t game, as did our attack. It happens, nothing to worry about, I do however hope we can bounce back well against Aston Villa, I don't want the season to finish on a whimper.

      In 1982/83 in Bob paisley's last season we wrapped up the league early and didn't win the last 7 games of the season. Wonder how people reacted back then

      Probably went down the pub and had a laugh then went into work the next day and took the piss out of any Everton fan that came within shouting distance.

      Huge disappointment though, to lose 4  0. It is just a pity Salah's shot did not go in, instead of hitting the post. Expect a massively improved performance on Sunday against Villa, with a few goals, from the champions.

      Think we lost to Southampton, ending a long unbeaten run, to actually win the title.  Think it was 5 games from the end.

      But similarly, with about 7 games left the reds were miles ahead and started to coast.  Will happily take all the trophies again they won the following season!

      Always sucks to lose but that scoreline doesn't really reflect the game, they weren't 4 goals better than us last night as the stats clearly show, in fact we had more possession and only a couple less shot on goal. Its just one of those odd games where they had the rub of the green and played very well and we had a slightly off day, for understandable reasons.

      Exactly.

      If that game mattered a toss to us in terms of needing points it would have went completely differently.

      All we lost out on was extra bragging rights.

      We're still in a good position to set a new PL points record all our remaining games are very winnable if we are hungry enough for it.

      I actually think that result might have been good as it was the kick up the arse the team needed to finish the season well, knock them out of the celebration haze.  Judging by Klopp's spiky interview I'm fairly certain he'll be reminding them that there's still 6 games to play and he expects them to win them all!

      Yep, if our front three were a bit sharper then we score the first goal last night and we probably would have ended up winning it. They weren't on it though and our back five had a nightmare (Gomez and the full backs in particular) so a hammering was always incoming once they got that penalty.

      Come on, don't drop your game now.
      You've been smashing it all season, and now is no time to take your foot off the gas.

      The supporters on internet forums deserve better from you, and as we know, they are perfectionists who all know better than lowly mortals.

      Quote from Guardiola about us:

      “I saw how incredibly focused they were to try and beat us during the guard of honour and that is why they are champions. They didn’t even say thank you because they were focused on the game,

      What a jackass of a comment. Sorry, but it is.

      One thing I noticed from when we gave one to Chelsea, is every one of our players stays in place until all the Chelsea players walk through. They are also all clapping. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNoVqXLL1QI

      I see some players not clapping and a number, including Pep himself, walking off before our group had finished walking through. What I don't see is where we are supposed to say thank you for them doing this.

      So when do we play them again? I can't wait.

      The game and result reminded me of our win over Citeh earlier in the year only this time it was Citeh who took their chances when given them.

      Onwards to Villa on Sunday

      Let's be honest their conduct before the game was nothing short of disgraceful. Can you imagine the uproar if we acted like that? Or if Mane did what Bernardo did and not clap and run away when the players were still coming onto the pitch? They get a free pass all the time, even when they've been found guilty of cheating their way to the top.

      Like you said though, all this just gets me even more excited to win the league again next year and see Pep f**k off back to Spain.

      Now you really talking sh*t!

      Nothing will f**k up my life, WE WON THE FUCKING LEAGUE, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna accept the standards to just f**king drop off. Am allowed to be annoyed. I hate those cu*ts and wanted to rub it in their faces today!





      So did I mate, so did I, I predicted we’d batter them 4 f***in nil in the pre match, in essence I’m looking like a bigger kunt than anyone, most posters on these boards accepted the defeat in a light hearted way knowing it as just a blip tinged perhaps with less intensity, mate, we got caught with our pants down simple as that, nobody shat in our kettle, pissed on our chips or chucked water on our barbie,
      Disappointed we didn’t f**k them over like I wanted to yes, but like you said were the f***in Champions and in five weeks time we’ll still be champions,

      Have a nice f***in day,  oh and btw, Keith still loves ya 🤪

      A team that’s had 3 defeats so far in two seasons after winning all major trophies available to them does not need a kick up the arse.. if anything these set of lads deserve a break from the intensity..,

      If it was up to me I’d blood the kids & players who have had lay offs due to injury..

      We gave it fifteen minutes and then barely looked bothered. We were slack all over the park and we treated it like a pre season game. You see how annoyed van Dijk gets if we ever concede, but last night he wasn't fussed. It was a hollow victory for City, we weren't at it and it has no bearing on next season. Liverpool teams used to do this all the time in the 70s and 80s, win the league then get a hiding or two. Our season is basically over and Jürgen has had them playing as if it were pre season since we came back. This will be a good lesson for us and for him, it's all cool.

      But you can't get away from the fact that teams collectively just move down in intensity when they've won stuff. You don't concentrate as much, you don't run as hard, you aren't as crisp on the ball. If you're at 70-80% City will kill you, and they were also really motivated. We still should have scored a couple mind, Firmino early on and then Mane in the second. Had we been on it last night it would have been a good game because we did create chances. But we are a team that lives off energy and being intense. City are a slower passing team, but we need energy and motivation for our style to work. If we're not on it we struggle. This reminded me of when we have Chelsea a hiding a few days after they beat us in the 2012 FA Cup Final. We were delighted, they weren't arsed.

      Bring on 20/21!!!

      Similar with City and the League Cup final.

      Well the last time they gave us a hammering we then upped it and started beating them pretty much every time. Yes they beat us at their place last season 2-1 but that was only because Kompany got away with murder.

      We’ll have them when there’s something to play for again.
