Responding to an update in the Times from correspondent Paul Joyce, plenty of Reds supporters have been excited over the report that our club owners won’t be able to attend the potential Merseyside derby title decider due to quarantine rules.
Indeed, we could win our first league title in 30 years by beating bitter rivals Everton if Man City fall to defeat against Arsenal on June 17 – but according to Joyce, Liverpool’s owners won’t be able to attend the would-be historic fixture due to a recent pandemic.
Despite the games being behind closed doors, the Times claim that 300 people will be allowed to attend every league match – including up to 10 executives and directors from each club.
Are you happy the owners won't be able to attend?
Recent government guidelines dictate that overseas visitors travelling to the United Kingdom must self-isolate for 14 days, meaning that USA-based chairman Tom Werner and principal owner John Henry will be unable to attend the encounter due to rules that have now come into effect.
Flocking to this update, many Liverpool fans have been joyous over the news – taking to Twitter in celebration.

The title win is for this wonderful city, fans, manager and players. Who cares about owners who don’t attend games and only in it for the money.
