The Reds are absolutely miles ahead at the top of the league. Jürgen Klopp’s side recently extended their lead at the top to 22 points after they beat Southampton and Manchester City lost to Spurs. Twitter has been cringing after the Robbie Savage phone in on Radio FiveLive heard a Man City fan blame VAR for the points gap.
Stat Man Gaz is a regular caller to Robbie Savage’s radio show.
The bitter City fan is known for his refusal to accept the greatness of this Liverpool side.
He embarrassed himself yet again with his latest near eight minute phone call with Savage being a car crash from start to finish.
The City fan cried about Southampton not being awarded a penalty – despite the fact that the Saints should have been a man and a penalty down themselves after Roberto Firmino was bundled to the floor.
He also went on the accuse the host of being biased because he didn’t have a Manchester City shirt when he was growing up.
Twitter has cringed in reaction to the Savage phone in.
Ian Doyle pointed out that this phone call was a perfect example of how Liverpool fans aren’t the unbearable ones.
This is sensational but also confirms what I’ve thought for a while now. It isn’t #LFC fans who will be unbearable if they win the league, it will be supporters of other clubs. Accept it and get on with supporting your team – they are going to need you. https://t.co/Gkk8UqCCCl

He wasn’t the only one, this fan accused Gaz of acting like a child.
You guys say Liverpool would be unbarable winning the league, but listen to how rival fans react. They are unbarable in losing. It’s insane. Grown men turning to children.

One City supporter interjected, saying that he can’t stand it when other fans won’t give The Reds the respect they deserve.
Hate it when some fans, including City, are saying Liverpool will only win the league because of VAR. Ridiculous comment. Liverpool deserves respect for what they have achieved in the league this season. Amazing.

Gaz also cried that Liverpool have lost to Aston Villa this season, what a shame that the self titled Stat Man couldn’t get his facts right.
Only played an u23 team vs villa because they flew their main squad out to play in the club World Cup which happened on the same day lol. Not because they are disrespecting the cup. Come on mr. Stat man get ya facts right

One supporter questioned whether he even is a City fan – he only ever talks about The Reds.
@Martin_Hole this is the guy who always calls saying he’s a Man City fan. Only ever talks about Liverpool.

But one Twitter user put it perfectly, it’s just embarrassing.
Honestly that’s the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever listened to.
City fans must be embarrassed by that.
