'What a man': Some Crystal Palace fans love what Patrick Vieira did after 3-0 Liverpool defeat
Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after they noticed Patrick Vieira speaking to Andy Madley after the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool.
What’s the story?
Well, the south Londoners were unlucky to lose by three goals to nil at Anfield earlier today.
The Eagles delivered a confident, creative display in which they hit the post twice inside the first five minutes, although Liverpool’s efficiency was key.
Having said that, things could’ve been different if Madley was a bit braver with his cards on Merseyside.
Madley failed to hand James Milner a yellow card, even though he committed a total of five fouls (WhoScored).
Additionally, Kostas Tsimikas went unpunished after appearing to trip Christian Benteke inside the box, just as he looked set to power a header past Alisson.
Vieira had every right to let Madley know his feelings, and the Crystal Palace fans enjoyed seeing such passion.
Patrick Vieira is a breath of fresh air for Crystal Palace
Would we have seen Roy Hodgson do something like this? No.
Time after time, the 74-year-old simply looked happy to be managing in the Premier League.
For example, he was caught smiling on the touchline after Liverpool hammered Crystal Palace 7-0 at Selhurst Park last term.
Far too often, Hodgson was passive, and didn’t seem to get fired up about injustices which affected his team – it was draining for fans to witness.
Now, the Eagles have a fighter in Vieira, someone who won’t stand for seeing his side dealt the short straw.
Let’s see what the Crystal Palace fans have been saying about Vieira speaking to Madley…

Vieira’s very right to walk straight to the ref after that game. Some terrible calls and missed fouls. #cpfc— Zach S 🦅 (@zstatkus) September 18, 2021
Vieira making his thoughts clear to the referee on his performance today, as he should. Woefully inept.— Dec (@Decbo_CPFC) September 18, 2021
