Liverpool Vs. Leeds Recap But It’s Just The Best Tweets Shitting On Liverpool

If the Super League is coming, Monday’s match was pointless.

With news of the European Super League dominating the global football conversation, Monday’s Premier League match between Liverpool and Leeds United felt entirely meaningless. Liverpool entered the match chasing the top four and Champions League football next season — something they’ll never have to concern themselves with again if the Super League moves forward.

The reaction from supporters has been fierce, especially so for Liverpool. It’s a club that’s always aligned itself with the working class, championed the sentiment of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and frequently paid homage to the ideas of former manager Bill Shankly, who once said, “At a football club, there’s a holy trinity — the players, the manager and the supporters. Directors don’t come into it. They are only there to sign the cheques.”

While the directors have now not just come into it, they’ve ruined the whole damn thing. Here’s a recap of today’s match using only the top comments from Liverpool’s coverage on Twitter. On the evidence below, football died today… it remains to be seen whether we’ll ever resuscitate it.
