You’d never hear Liverpool fans booing their team like Manchester City did in their win over Tottenham last night.
That’s according to former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy. Speaking to TalkSPORT today, Murphy labelled the fans who booed their team off at half-time last night ‘spoilt.’
“You wouldn’t get that at Anfield. No chance,” said the pundit. “It’s [City] a spoilt fanbase. [At Liverpool there’s ] A different mindset and different way of thinking. Have you heard them boo Klopp yet? And they’re sitting in, what, ninth.”
It was certainly a shock to hear the boos ring out at the Etihad last night. City may have been 2-0 down to Spurs, but they duly turned it around and won 4-2. Just the four titles in five seasons. It beggars belief, it really does.
City fans, are you not entertained?
It isn’t necessarily that you wouldn’t hear booing at Anfield ever. There was certainly plenty of open dissent during Roy Hodgson’s time at the club, for instance.
But should Liverpool ever find themselves in the position that City currently are, it’s hard to believe that their fans would boo.
Four titles in five seasons is just ridiculously dominant. How dare Pep Guardiola and his players find themselves eight points off the top in second-place this season!
The entitlement is truly staggering. Unfortunately, that’s what you get when you have a club with unlimited resources winning things for fun.
It isn’t all the City fans, of course it isn’t. But it was loud enough to come through pretty clearly on the telly.
This season hasn’t been perfect for them, to be fair, and they have lost two on the spin. At half-time last night that looked like being three.
Murphy’s point still stands, though. Liverpool have been far, far worse this season and you haven’t heard a peep from Anfield. And you won’t.
Unlike City supporters’ view of things, these players and this manager have more than enough credit in the bank to prevent that. In fact, these are the times when Jurgen Klopp and his boys need the fans more than ever. And they’ll get that support. To those who booed at City last night, give your heads a wobble.
