Liverpool played well until the final 10 minutes then conceded two goals when usually they are the comeback kids. The results do not change Liverpool's third position.

Villa was Duran Duran.

The stadium went quiet quickly.

You have your stadiums mixed up. The game was at Villa Park. Learning the names of the stadiums is not very difficult. Villa Park was anything but quiet but you know that had you watched the game. Both fans were roaring. We finished third you bottom.

It was at Aston Villa’s stadium.

Nah--if you had seen the game or at least the highlights:

the home side went behind in the second minute with a bizarre own goal from goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, 

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

That means Tottenham still have a mathematical chance of Champion's League qualification and they will surely not want to lie down and get their bellies rubbed by Man City rather than see Arsenal win the premier league. Or would they?

Oh, you thought I was referring to Liverpool's stadium? Why? Any true fan would have known the match was held at Villa Park.

I'll repeat for you since you didn't see the game:

the home side went behind in the second minute with a bizarre own goal from goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, 

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Great game of football. Six goals, mistakes, some superb play. Liverpool will be disappointed they didn’t put it to bed but credit to Villa.

No wonder the stadium was bouncing.

you must have watched a different game. No silence/quiet.

Postecoglu directly addressed this. He is aware of clips and posts doing the rounds on social media of Spurs fans doing things like singing ‘City till I die’.

He had to say Spurs will go all out for the win and I believe that’s what he’ll go for, but that stadium atmosphere could be interesting if Spurs were to score.

I can’t imagine it would match the racket at Villa Park.

Man City have never won at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

It was a great game for the neutrals.

Most premiership grounds are quiet

Generally speaking j league grounds are much noiser

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Anfield and its fans are known for being the loudest. Some say it's the extra player. The envy of many clubs.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Crystal Palace was one of the loudest I've experienced. The Palace fans were proper mental.

Happy to lose this one if it prevents Woolwich from being champions.

Tom Hanks was at Villa Park to cheer on his favorite Premier League side.

One of the best games of football I ever watched was Villa vs Liverpool. Must have been 1994 or 95. Sensational. Watched on the telly with a bunch of Jack Wafu Scousers in a pub nearby HMS Seahawk.

Wow! Maybe that's why Tottenham are a small club.

When you have a 2-goal lead but take out Endo and put Mac Allister in his position, you deserve this outcome.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Most premiership grounds are quiet

Not in my experience but there are some.

Roy Keane did have a point about the prawn sandwich brigade at Old Trafford but Man U do have a noisy away following.

Palace, Newcastle, Liverpool are particularly noisy at home. West Ham great at Upton Park but some saying less so at the new stadium. The old Highbury library nickname had some justification.

I agree these stadiums can be passionate I've been to all that you mentioned but I found the noise to be stop, start depending on what is happening on the pitch

Italy and Germany fans make noise for the whole 90 minutes

Likewise standing behind the goal home at Hiroshima, urwa and reysol was similar to the European atmospheres (of course on a smaller scale)

0 ( +1 / -1 )

It's nice if the crowd is responding to the action. The worst world cup was South Africa where the constant noise of the vuvuzelas utterly destroyed the atmosphere of the games.

As it should be for the most part.

I went to Urawa and Reysol among others in the past.

At Reysol the stadium was pretty quiet apart from a well choreographed group behind the goal banging drums and chanting.

A bit repetitive and rehearsed for me but they did make some noise.

BTW ‘Jimizo’ if you’d be so kind.

I guess it what you prefer

I like the singing, flag waving and chants

The Kop has a great repertoire of songs they sing. All Anfield games begin with "You'll Never Walk Alone".

You wouldn't understand.

Box ticked against Man C. Woolwich Scum winning the league is just too much of a risk.

Final game against the worst team in the league to prevent the Magpies from catching us and a good job done.

Then it's to Tokyo in June. Wish they would play Vissel actually in Kobe!!

And the days just keep giving. Spurs now secure thanks to Man U.
