Badge of honour us getting beat was the highlight of the season.

We're a magnificent boss AF team, a machine and everyone hates and fears what we're doing under Klopp.

We’re now getting ‘gifted’ the title. There’s about 10 teams being gifted Premier League survival if it goes to PPG.

A team so far ahead that Usain Bolt couldn't catch them are being 'gifted' the title. 😂

I don't care, we deserve it and if someone suggests otherwise I only need three guesses to find out who he supports.

I'm not getting the idea from those that think this season should be cancelled and start again. There is no way next season is guaranteed if we cancel this season. This season is 3/4 through, finish it (even if it takes ages) and then worry about next season afterwards.

And all three of your guesses would probably be right.

City more or less bought the league, is that not a gift

No, it was a purchase.

The gift was that hardly any side in the league apart from Liverpool and a very few others had the guts to even try to give them a game.

All of this bitterness will disappear with time.

I don't think people will ultimately begrudge us of the title if we win it without the season being complete.

Emotions are flying high right now and yes there are some dumb sh*ts in the fullness of time the facts will speak for themselves.

I actually think the best case scenario from a public health perspective would be to just award us the title now and perhaps award CL to City (pending outcome of UEFA ban) and Leicester, have a mini league/knock out for Chelsea-Sheffield for CL (3 games each at neutral venues plus a final maybe?) and another for Spurs-Palace for Europa (3 games at neutral venues plus a final maybe?). Brighton to Norwich can have a relegation mini-league (5 games only at neutral venues plus a playoff final). Everton, Southamton and Newcastle can just be satisfied that they won't get relegated. They're not likely to get to European places.

This way what you're doing is reducing the number of games from potentially 94 by about half. You could do that potentially over 3 weeks.

Yes there's going to be some moaning, but at the end of the day expecting some miraculous solution that will make everyone happy and keep people safe is unrealistic. The advantage of the mini-league approach is everyone that has something to play for would be playing their peers for European football/survival. If you don't think you're good enough to prevail against your peers, then maybe the problem is with your team.

I don't think it's a perfect solution, but to be honest I think a lot of clubs need to harden up and realise that this is a once in a century (hopefully) crisis and everyone needs to make some sacrifices.

Not concerned as such as I don’t think the decision makers take a lead from virgins on Twitter...however, I do find it exhausting what social media has done to the way football is consumed and discussed. It’s wild stuff.

Only if you pay attention to it though, or give it any credence or let it effect you one iota.

So many here seem so enraged and stressed and vituperative about the social media response and all the ''despicable scumbags'' and everything else. You see people saying things like ''I can't bear this anymore just hand us the title and end it'', and long, long screeds about the inhumanity of it all. You've got people suddenly welcoming the idea of the even more obscene capitalist moneytrough that would be a European Super League of some kind; a move that would decimate and destroy football as a community-based entity even more than it already has been. And all just because ''that'll show 'em''.

But it's all self-inflicted. It's so unnecessary. A Pyrrhic vengeance on the bottom 6 clubs or the PL or someone or other, some enemy that is ''asking for it'',  just to assuage a totally unnecessary rage.

There are many others, including me, who don't think or feel any of those things, who are about as stress free about football as it's possible to be at this time. I wonder what our secret is?

The main thing stopping this is $$$.
If they don't pay all of the games they lose lots of the broadcast income both domestic and international.

To be honest, I just don't think it will. That's just the way it is. We're a big club with a fantastic history, and the longer we don't win a league title, especially if it includes a season we dominated, the more others will enjoy.
Additionally, come a usual season's end, only a handful of teams and their supporters are truly happy with their season, the rest would absolutely enjoy a reboot if possible. You'll have 2-3 teams happy to have avoided relegation, the league champion, and 2 or so teams happy they just made it into Europe. I think for the rest, it's a bonus if they get void the season AND that also means we don't win a long awaited (yet practically guaranteed) title.

I'm not all too fussed when analysts, former players, current players, supporters, etc, try to push for voiding the season. It's out of our hands as it is, let's see what comes. Luckily for us, it's the financial concerns that may keep this season afloat. Ironically, it's the greed and capitalism mindset that may give us the best chance to complete the season.

Loving all the “haha, isn’t it hilarious they’ve been handed the title/won it by default shouts” like a) it’s been confirmed the season has finished already and b) as if we’re only a few points clear and it’s still in the balance.

Honestly, I couldn't give a toss what other bitter dipshits who support other teams might crap on about - 'not real champions'...'..only with an asterisk' etc etc blah blah...

Nobody - absolutely nobody - can argue with the facts of what we've done this season. If City were to win their game in hand they'd be 22 points behind us with 9 games left each. That kind of lead is quite simply phenomenal and no amount of ungracious bleating from anyone can take it away, it's just an absolute fact.

I'm just proud of us.
