It's funny that it's from the official site, if it was just a fan doing it there'd be nothing wrong but from the club? Hahaha the fucking idiots, what about the Everton fans in Wales?

You can smell the desperation. If we're asked about this we should say "We're proud to to have not only three quaters of our city support us, but also many international fans, like those from Norway."

It's marketing genius actually, of course if the intent was to alienate the small but incredibly loyal out of town support. Maybe they do want to be become more Royston Vasey?

They might be surprised at just how much the Norwegians don't give a fuck.

 

Our club didn't want to continue being run like a corner shop, but we've never stooped so low as becoming the equivalent of selling out of the back of an van.

 

I bet they haven't even got the foresight to print that image onto mouse mats to give away on one of their online forums.

I don't get it. I'm from Australia, not Norway.

 

Everton's marketing is extremely misleading and hurtful.

 

Picking on a little club like Liverpool. Minority bashing.

 

Perhaps they could next try to re-ignite an ethnic cleansing campaign in the former Jugoslavija.

Maybe they should concentrate on the fact that they're only 4 points below us despite their shitty season so far.

 

... or because of yet another shitty season by us more like.

True. Either way, I'd avoid us gloating over them...

 

To gloat over them, you first have to be interested enough in them.

 

No danger of that from me.

Small clubs do what small clubs do.

 

It's the same as calling their shop in Liverpool 1, Everton 2. It's pathetic, especially when their other store, Everton 1 is actually in Liverpool 4.

You have to give it to them they are fantastic at marketing, as long as you live within 20 miles. It seems like a good business model to me.

 

If saying you're local when you've got a mopped-headed Belgian, for instance, as one of your marquee employees constitutes fantastic marketing, then yes.

 

At least they're following the marketing 101 principal of not telling the truth I suppose.

    • I did leave the game on last night just to see Roy Keane, he was so funny, didn’t pull any punches. Dreading reading some social media this morning but most aren’t laughing at us for us change but at the mancs. As others have said we’ve been magnificent this season, there may be a twist yet. Hell of a season if we are a close second and CL winners.
    • Pep Guardiola has seen many things in his Football career, but it is highly unlikely that he has been part of a title race such as this.

      Man City reclaimed the upper hand on Wednesday night with a 2-0 victory in the Manchester derby.

      While the Spaniard and his squad would have breathed an almighty sigh of relief to get the much discussed fixture out of the way with the three points, he knows there is plenty of hard work to be done.

      The Liverpool Echo reported Guardiola as saying:

      "Normally with this kind of derby victory you can it enjoy it the most but we have to be calm.

      " We have to prepare well for all three games left.

      "It's important to be calm. We are still not champions with three games left - it's incredible with the points we and Liverpool have.

      "I told the players don't read tomorrow, don't watch the television, just rest and sleep a lot and go in there against Burnley."

      Despite being the manager of their closest rival this season, it is clearly evident the respect that Guardiola has for the job that Jurgen Klopp has done with the Reds and the squad as a whole.

      Guardiola says both Liverpool and City deserve equal recognition for producing a title race for the ages.

      And unlike previous seasons where the runner-up may look back and say 'what if' both teams should be ultimately proud of their efforts.  

      " Liverpool and ourselves deserve the title as one.

      "The team that is going to lose can't have regrets because they have given everything."

      We have come close in our last couple of title challenges, but all we experienced at the end of it was a feeling of emptiness and frustration.

      Somehow this feels a bit different and while the race is far but over, whatever transpires in the remaining weeks, you can only feel pride of the efforts by the Redmen on a week to week basis.

    • The form of Joel Matip has undoubtedly been one of the most pleasing developments in the second half of this campaign. However, there would have been times when the Cameroon international would have wondered if things were ever going to go his way at Liverpool.

      Just when it seemed he was ready to stamp his authority on the centre back position, an innocuous injury appeared completely out of the blue such as the collarbone injury sustained in the last minute of the final Champions League group game against Napoli in early December.

      Seemingly blessed with the physical attributes to be a impressive central defender, his inability to impose himself in a game sense due to his causal demeanour has consistently frustrated many fans over his time at the club.

      However a real opportunity emerged in the early part of 2019. 

      After making a quicker than expected recovery from his injury, a spot in the back four opened up with Dejan Lovren who had been deputising for both Joe Gomez and Matip, suffering an hamstring strain in the FA Cup tie against Wolves.

      They say good fortune comes in many ways and to the great credit of the 27 year-old, he has taken it with both hands.

      Developing a strong bond with your fellow central defender is crucial, and something that Matip lacked in previous stints in the side.

      However, after linking up with Virgil Van Dijk, he has progressed to the next level.

      There is something a bit special seeing a central defender go on mazy runs up the pitch.

      Matip has always had this aspect to his game, but as his confidence has grown, his roaming trips have become all the more frequent to the great delight of the Anfield crowd.

      The defender explained to the Official site about his love to have the ball at his feet.

      "I'm a defender but I really enjoy to have the ball in all situations.

      "We have the ball quite often and I try to help my teammates and try to do something for the team to create something. 

      "I really enjoy it. I think it's not bad if you enjoy the way you play.

      "When I was young I tried to play from the back. I think that's just the way I am, the way I play. Sometimes it helps and I hope that it will help our team.

      "Maybe I should not do it every few minutes but I think he [Klopp] trusts me.   "If I step in and the risk is not too high and I can help the team then it's helpful."  

      Despite having an adventurous nature, Matip knows putting the ball in the back of the net himself is not one of his strengths and he sticks to the basics in this regard.

      "I know what I can do and shooting is not my favourite part, so I think it's better to leave the shooting for some others.

      "But maybe one day I will be in a better position and also can score with a shot."

      Currently enjoying his most consistent run of games as a Liverpool player, Matip knows every team Liverpool comes up against at this time of the season is a considerable test which continues against Huddersfield on Friday night.

      "No game in the Premier League is easy, it doesn't matter who you play against.

      "They will fight, they will try to earn their respect and they will not come here to give us some points. It will be a tough challenge."

    • If we lift the European Cup - what would have been the jewel in their potential quadruple crown - I'd imagine that would absolutely boil their, and especially Guardiola's piss.   Even should they pip us to the League.   We have to stay positive, twat Huddersfield.   And I have to keep reminding myself we can win the European Cup.   (And maybe the League)        
    • I'm hoping Saruman the White conjures up the 1974 Leighton James to score a last-gasp Burnley winner/equaliser.
