This isn't even a critism of the team, just the know it all gobshites on here who claimed anyone who didn't agree with their "everything is rosey" view were WUM's and clueless.
Laughing at them right now in the face of how utterly abject we have become.
Haha that was some bizarre stuff in fairness. Failed to notice the trends of results.
By that same token its becoming more and more unlikely now we make top 4.
So how many of you knew then that the team would go into complete freefall?
Well done though, give yourselves a pat on the back about how you were all right and everyone else was wrong. Everything hasn't been rosy for months, but fans were certainly right at the time not to jump overboard before the season reached the halfway mark. While the picture is clearer now, they certainly should at least be watching the game and getting behind the team, rather than boasting about how right they were all along, during the event. None of us could foresee the sickening extent of the damage done over the past number of weeks, or the keeper literally kicking the season away, with injuries mounting, points dropped, records crumbling etc every week. But there's 8 days to the next game, lots of time for the inquests to be held and the obituaries to be written, without the need for people to throw personal insults around the thread like confetti.
Everything that can go wrong this season has, our first five picks at CB all currently injured? It's unbelievable.
Each game is seeming like a carbon copy, we aren't actually playing that bad we've just lost that killer edge, that maybe no fans being in which gives the players a lift and Jota not being available is putting no pressure to perform on the front three.
F**k Everton let them have their moment they're still sh*te, we've won European, World and Premier League titles in the last two years, they've won... At Anfield.. When the open top bus parade?
To them, beating us is their equivalent of winning silverware. The whole point of their existence is to beat us, in games, tables, competitions. The fact our own fans consider them important doesn't help either. They've done nothing for 25 years. Everton may be a big club on Merseyside but nowadays, they're as big as Southport to the rest of the world. Hence the media reaction that comes about when the derby doesn't follow the usual script.
Once they went ahead, they could sit there and dictate the game, and watch us trying various attempts at banging the door down. We tried running through them, didn't work. We tried crosses, didn't work. We tried short corners, didn't work. We tried long range efforts, didn't work. We tried wearing them down with possession, didn’t work. We tried subs, didn't work. We even tried the last resort option, Origi. Nothing worked. I don't see a lack of effort or heart or desire, but I can't put my finger on why exactly we've slumped from 6 points clear on Christmas Day to 6th spot in a couple of months. It's probably a combination of different factors, most of which we have little or no control over.
You could make a valid argument either way for why the penalty should be awarded or overturned. Ultimately only one decision could be made, and obviously the ref decided that there was enough contact to give it. We don't like it, but tbh if it was down the other end, we would all be baying for it, wouldn't we?
About 15 years ago, we released the Great Victories Over Everton DVD, where Louis Emerick showed another side to him than his role in Brookside. It was great that there was a wide range of wins on it, home wins, away wins, neutral ground wins, replays, cup finals, comebacks, walkovers, penalties, piledrivers, scrambles, last minute jobs, the lot. But there was only one edition as we discovered that DVD's about winning tin sold more. Chances are we'll win some more tin before they come close to winning another derby. After all, making DVD's about winning tins is what big clubs do.
Right I've had enough. I just want to say that if there's any mod positions going, I'm willing to offer my services to help with the clean up.
