Liverpool fans are still trying to recover from Saturday’s Merseyside Derby.
A 2-2 draw against a strong Everton side at Goodison Park certainly isn’t the worst result in the world.
But when you consider everything that happened during the dramatic 90 minutes, they have every right to be fuming.
Firstly, Jordan Pickford’s horror tackle on Virgil van Dijk went unpunished. Liverpool confirmed the dreaded news that the Dutchman has damaged his ACL and could well be out for the rest of the season.
It wasn’t the only sickening challenge in the match as Richarlison was shown a red card for a leg-breaking tackle on Thiago late on.
And then came the drama at the end as Jordan Henderson thought he’d won the match for his side only for VAR to adjudge Sadio Mane to have been offside in the build-up. It's fair to say the replays were inconclusive.
It must be tough for Jurgen Klopp and his players to accept they didn’t come away with all three points. And it’s equally difficult for their fans to accept.
In fact, it’s too much to take for one fan.
Twitter user and Liverpool supporter @LeroyTimes is really struggling to deal with everything that happened.
In fact, so much so, that he’s planning to do something about it.
On Sunday morning, he wrote: “Morning reds, had quite a few messages of support over the silent protest for the derby. Let me remind people this would be socially distanced outside Anfield. Also a petition to get Pickford banned for the length of time VVD is injured will be set up to discuss in Parliament.”
He then added: “The peaceful protest would start with a March through Stanley park with banners with key messages to the FA & flags of VVD to show support. We never walk alone we will get these extra 2 points back with we show solidarity and support. YNWA we can do this. With hope in your heart.”
A third tweet read: “An email will also be sent to the Premier League by me demanding Pickford & Richarlison are banned for the full season. The game replayed at Anfield or we get the extra points. I will mention we have a duty of care to our players to raise this to the police so they will act.”
Surely he’s not actually being serious?
Well, he insisted that he’s not a parody account.
