Everton fans weren’t celebrating the draw

So, the Anfield derby came and went and it was the blue half of Merseyside that came away smiling.  The much-maligned team has been gelled together by the experienced head of Sam Allardyce and put in a solid, if not a little last-ditch performance to earn a point at their noisy neighbours.

Evertonians though weren’t celebrating the draw, despite what the Kopites might think.  They were really celebrating pissing all over the red half’s proverbial bonfire, thanks to a huge lack of respect shown by their commander in chief Jurgen Klopp.

Klippety decided to use the Merseyside Derby as a chance to rest several of his “stars” and made 6 changes including taking Coutinho and Firmino out of the starting 11.  This may have been because he was expecting a combatant Everton side, or he may have just thought it may have been a walk in the park.

In fairness to the red half, they were by far the best team in a one-sided match, but they still barely threatened Jordan Pickford’s goal only having 3 shots on target compared to Everton’s 2.  Everton only had 21% possession, but their defence held firm.

People may go back to Klopp to complain about not starting his first-choice team, but Everton were in the same situation with many first-choice players missing, including most of their first choice back line.  Seamus Coleman, Leighton Baines and Ramiro Funes-Mori would all have probably started if they were fit.  In the middle of the park Ross Barkley and Yannick Bolasie were likely to have started too and Morgan Schneiderlin and James McCarthy would have probably started too.

The main reason the Everton fans were delighted though was the utter delusion of the Liverpool manager and their fans, who believe the penalty in the match should not have been given.  The simple fact of the matter was that Dejan Lovren put his hands-on Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s back and pushed him.  Yes, it was a soft penalty, but it was a definite penalty.

The fact that Klopp asked a room full of journalists after the game if they believed it was a penalty and pretty much to a man, they all said yes.  The delusion, the arrogance, the self-indulgence and the utter general gobshitedness that stems from top to bottom is on another scale.

Everton are a team in transition.  We knew we couldn’t compete with Liverpool playing football as they have had a few years and a lot of money to transform a team into one of the best attacking teams in the league, while Everton has spent poorly in the window, have an ageing defence and no number 1 striker.  Yet, we went there and got a point.

Would I have changed the 21% possession and the 2 shots on target or would I have wanted more than 1 corner?  Honestly?

Actually, No.  I wish we had less possession, less shots and no corners and still got a point.  Why?  Because the outpouring from the red half would have been even more amusing than it was already.

The weekend was topped off by Phil Thompsons claim that Liverpool are everyone’s second favourite team. Bwa ha ha ha ha

 

Celebrating a draw.  No.  Celebrating a team in transition making the red half look stupid.  Hell yes.

  1. You sir are full of shit, the player dived and was looking for the pen. Everton are a shit team who got lucky, even if you had all your team available you ate still shit, why did Koeman get that sack?? Take the blue tinted glasses off. If you had a choice of manager, I know who you would choose. Deluded prick

  2. The moaning and feeling of self pity will make it easier for big Sam in January no need for a team talk, just replay the videos of klopp complaining and say “we have got them rattled, stop them from playing and the will crumble in front of you”

  3. He might of been looking for a pen and Loveren obliged so who’s the sucker ? Get a life ffs and take your tinted red glasses and stick em where the sun dont shine !

  4. thought we defended well to limit the free scoring Norwegians to only 3 yes I did say only 3 shots on target don`t go on about the 23 off target there called misses don talk about the 71% possession because in the end you only had 3 shots on target we had 2 which as we know form our days at school that 3+2 = 1-1

  5. Every word bang on! Well said!! Looking forward to Newcastle, I really want Keane & Holgate CBs with Jags supporting! I know Williams has improved lately, but still almost cost us a goal y’day, too frigin slow & we need width Lookman, Mirallas & Vlasic (one of them to start, other 2 on bench) Vlasic for me to start wide right!!!!!
