For months, pundits (usually ex-Liverpool players) have preached neutrals want the Reds to win the Barclays Premier League. What Monday night's capitulation at Crystal Palace proved was they were about as right as when Alan Hansen declared "you can't win anything with kids".

Liverpool's players and fans hardly helped with their blubbering. Luis Suárez concealed his face like a defendant attending court. Steven Gerrard, who usually loves cameras so much he kisses them, pushed one away. On the terraces, supporters wept like Gwyneth Paltrow accepting an Oscar.
Adjacent to them, Palace's fans rubbed it in. "Steve Gerrard Gerrard, he slipped on his fucking arse, and gave it to Demba Ba," they chirped.
Online, Tottenham's official account tweeted a Vine of Liverpool's demise.
"Brutal but very funny. The biggest capitulation since Newcastle in the 90s," the tweet read. It was quickly deleted and Spurs apologised to anyone who was "offended" by it. Ie. only Liverpool supporters.
There was little sympathy...
