Why Liverpool Fans May Not Want Manchester City’s Title To Be Stripped

Share This Post

The footballing world was shocked when it was announced that Manchester City were hit with a two year Champions League ban for breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

This has now seen the Premier League subsequently make their own investigations on the matter. There has been a lot of paper talk as to what punishment could be made by the Premier League.

There have been one or two rumours that a points deduction could be in order, but the biggest one is that there is reportedly the potential for Manchester City to have their 2013-14 Premier League title stripped from them.

This would therefore hand second placed Liverpool a Premier League title. This would, as a result, hand Steven Gerrard a Premier League winner’s medal.

However, as a Liverpool fan who idolised Steven Gerrard, I am not sure I would want this to happen. On the one hand I would love Gerrard to get that winners medal and for people to stop referring to his lack of a Premier League medal, but it wouldn’t be quite the same.

It will have the same feeling as those initial Olympic Silver medalists who get a gold because the original winner failed a doping test. It would also take the shine off how the current season has gone so far in the Premier League.

One of the best parts about how well this season is going in the league is that we have waited so long for this. Should the title be stripped off Manchester City, it has the potential to take the shine away.

I would much rather us win the league after a 30 year absence then win it for the first time in 6 years, one which we never got to celebrate and was given to us as a result of someone else cheating.

Imagine the celebrations at Anfield in May if we win the league after a 30 year absence. The stadium would be electric, with ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and ‘Fields of Anfield Road’ blasting and being sung to the high heavens by thousands of passionate Scousers.

I am not against the decision to strip the title off Manchester City as the league needs to send out a message. However, I do fear it may take the shine off a league win which has been a long time in waiting.

I would rather see Man City suffer the same fate as Juventus and be relegated down a division or even face a 30 point deduction, similar to the punishment Rugby Union side Saracens have recently being deal with which has resulted in their relegation.
