Oasis star admits Liverpool deserve the title
He's not usually the most magnanimous of celebrity football fans, but former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has finally gone on record to admit that Liverpool deserve to win the title.
Albeit begrungingly, he's told talkSPORT (via the Liverpool Echo) that we deserve it and the title should just be given to us.
In case you've forgotten, LFC currently sit 25 points ahead of nearest title rivals Man City in the Premier League table and were just 2 wins away from winning it before the pandemic shut down most of the planet.
But he's actually sounding like a lot of fans now, and just thinks it'd be easier to just end the season and hand us the title. He said: "They’ve won it anyway. They should just give it to them.
"I think they should just start planning for next season now because this is going to go on. Football is all about the fans and I don’t agree with playing games behind closed doors.
"Liverpool have won the league, so they might as well give it to them. But the only thing to stop them doing that is relegation and promotion from the other leagues."
It's hard to imagine why a Man City fan would just want to forget this domestic season and concentrate on the next but, in all likelihood, the season will be allowed to finish and we'll still win it anyway.
All of the Premier League's clubs are due to meet Friday morning to discuss a potential end date for this season's domestic league.
