Liam Gallagher certainly didn’t mince his words when expressing his views on seeing Premier League football return behind closed doors. Sheffield United and Aston Villa marked the return of Premier League football earlier on Wednesday – the first time in England games had been played with no fans in attendance.
The game ended in a controversial 0-0 draw as goal-line technology denied Sheffield United a goal after replays clearly showed Orjan Nyland had carried the ball over his line.
But that wasn’t the only talking point of the game as fans watching at home were far from impressed from the fake crowd noise.
Teams had implemented the artificial noise to help try and create are more natural feel to competitive Premier League games.
While the goal-line technology controversy took centre stage, the game between United and Villa was ultimately a dull affair.
There was more optimism about a more competitive game later that night between City and Arsenal.
However, it was clear the players were working up to full match fitness still with two Arsenal players being forced off with injury in the opening 20 minutes.
Chances were few and far between and famous City fan Gallagher clearly wasn’t a fan of watching this kind of football.
“This is pure w*** void the season absolutely ridiculous all because the scousers ain’t won the league for 300 years,” Gallagher tweeted.
His views echo those of his famous brother, Noel Gallagher, who back in April expressed his desire to see the season declared null and void.
“They’ve won it anyway. They should just give it to them,” he said.
“I think they should just start planning for next season now because this is going to go on.
“Football is all about the fans and I don’t agree with playing games behind closed doors.
“I don’t care if there’s six games on a day, although of course it will make the lockdown a bit better.
“But the games behind closed doors aren’t even that good to watch and people will turn up.
“All my mates who are City fans have said ‘if they start playing games behind closed doors, we’re going’. It could cause more trouble than it’s worth.
“But I think that the authorities should think about playing next season and playing with limited fans and social distancing in the stadium and all that.
“Liverpool have won the league, so they might as well give it to them. But the only thing to stop them doing that is relegation and promotion from the other leagues.”
