An image which appears to be taken from Snapchat of a crowd in Mahon Point Shopping Centre in Cork is going viral since it was first shared online yesterday evening. 

The photo shows a crowd of men gathered around a Sky screen to watch the match while they "send the missus off shopping"

The Liverpool Vs. Manchester City match was on yesterday afternoon and it seems that fellas in the shopping centre just couldn't keep their eyes off the screen.

Reddit users were quick to point out the needless stereotyping

"Surely "proper order" would be staying at home to watch the match if ye wanted to see it?" one user commented. 

"Imagine being that emasculated that you have to follow your replacement mammy around the shops like a child and the highlight of the day is watching 10 minutes of a football match while she has something better to do", another said. 

"That's a bit tragic."

Now don't get us wrong, if the lads want to watch the match and the gals are happy out going around the shops then that's all good, but you can hardly call that the "proper order" in 2018 and think that's it's alright. 

The image has since been retweeted almost 500 times and shared on popular sports site Benchwarmers

What do you think? Will this year finally be the year we can stop succumbing to stupid stereotypes and just let everyone live their feckin' best lives?

Nah. We doubt it.
