Liverpool fan tells radio station club ‘should get a trophy’ for finishing second

Wayne Farry

Oh mate – what are you thinking?

Liverpool have been sensational this season and – with one game to go – look likely to finish second in the Premier League on 97 points, the most points ever amassed without earning a league title.

Vincent Kompany’s stunning long-range strike against Leicester City on Monday night confirmed that Manchester City would go into the final day of the season ahead of the Reds by a solitary point, meaning that it will all go down to the wire.

With Liverpool 3-0 down from their Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona and second in the table, it is looking increasingly likely that they will end the season without a trophy, but one supporter who called into talkSPORT’s Andy Goldstein believes that the club should be given a trophy regardless of whether they finish top of the league.

“It’s been such a gripping title race. I thought we should get a trophy if we finish second,” he said.

“If we get 97 points, it’s astronomical, Alex Ferguson never got that many.

“Come up against this City team, they’ve spent all that money.

“We’ve got Champions League semi-final coming up, what have they got?

“We’ve won the Champions League five times, what’s anybody else done?”

Understandably, Goldstein’s first reaction was to ask if it was a wind up, and he did just that, suggesting that the caller was in fact an Evertonian taking the piss, asking: “Are you winding me up, are you an Evertonian?”

If it was an Evertonian, it is a very good wind up. If not, well, the less said the better.
