“What a moment”, “Thought I was listening to a wasp nest!” – Fans react to PL return & fake crowd noise

Fans had plenty to say as the Premier League returned on Wednesday after 100 days since the last game, as Aston Villa took on Sheffield United and Man City hosted Arsenal.

There was of course plenty to take in, with lots of changed approaches from normal match play—and an absolute age since the last time we watched English football at all.

No fans in the ground, the added artificial crowd noise, the impending return of Liverpool to the pitch and indeed the actual football on show were all discussed by fans as the Premier League returned.

Here’s the best of the reaction from Reds fans and football figures as the 2019/20 campaign got back underway in the top flight.
