How we reacted to Liverpool’s historic collapse at Crystal Palace


Liverpool suffered an astonishing collapse at Crystal Palace on Monday night, blowing a 3-0 lead with only 11 minutes left to play (plus stoppage time) to draw 3-3.

Palace’s monumental comeback dealt Liverpool a critical blow in the Premier League title race, as Manchester City now only need four points from their final two games to secure the trophy.

The result at Selhurst Park sent shock waves around the world, and depending on who your team is, these were the most likely reactions:

Nasri looks on in horror as Kompany drops Capital One Cup

Vincent Kompany captained Manchester City to their first League Cup title since 1976 on Sunday, and nearly broke the trophy.

Kompany almost dropped the Capital One Cup mid-lift when its detachable base slipped out of the Belgian’s hands. The base didn’t make it, but Kompany went on to hoist the remains as if nothing ever happened.

Samir Nasri was not as calm.


Fail! Whitecaps striker’s backflip… backfires

We can all agree that acrobatic backflip celebrations are pretty awesome, right? It would help if you can land them, though. Jamaican forward Andre Lewis from the Vancouver Whitecaps attempted to bust one out in a preseason friendly against University of Victoria, and instead fell flat on his backside, making for a rather embarrassing walk back to the center circle. Exactly what you deserve trying to showboat in front of college kids!

Joey Barton messes with his opponent’s privates

QPR’s Joey Barton gave injured opponent Danny Guthrie a, ahem, precautionary gonad check-up whilst receiving treatment on the pitch in the late stages of his side’s 1-1 draw at Reading.

Though some may have seen sinister intent in it, Barton merely was having a little fun with his former Newcastle teammate, which he confirmed via Twitter afterward:

How refreshing, a Joey Barton blog with little to no controversy attached!
