*Shakes head* Everton again.

Condolences mate, but that was a great post. Sadly I think those days have gone. My grandad was a red, but for many years he watched both clubs every other week. He brought me up in footballing terms without any hatred for them and I remember watching the 84 cup final together and supporting Everton. That's not to say there weren't moody moments, but they were soon forgotten and the banter between the club's was healthy and we knew as a city it was us against the rest of them. Liverpool 1st , Everton 2nd was how I wanted to see every season end. But I'm not immune from it all despite all that. The bile from them over the last 15 or so years, to be honest, they can't fuck off to the championship quickly enough as far as I'm concerned. 

 

It was always classed as the friendly Derby and that was indeed the case in the 70's and early 80's. In and around Liverpool you had kids hanging about together with mixed tops on and having a kick about. Fans mixing in the ground and even in the pubs for a good old chat after the game. Like you say, their was the odd incident but they were soon sorted out by the older blokes. I can't speak for the 90's but since the birth of the Internet is seems to have brought about the toxic behaviour of a lot of fans, some of our own included. It now spills into the stadium as large numbers of people always feel safe. What is it like on the streets of Liverpool these days? Not on about gangs of them hanging about but one or two faced by the same numbers, I bet there is hardly a bad word to be said beyond what would class as banter.

You still get middle aged blue-nosed fellas in the pubs acting like fucking dickheads when it comes to football. Coming out with seriously vile stuff about us , our players and ex players etc. Loudest in the pub, can't have a discussion because they just shout over you with some shite about a throw-in that should have been given against us in 1992 but wasn't which is why they nearly went down two years later. Usually surrounded by their red mates who just roll their eyes because they have put up with it for years.

Sad as fuck mate. The last time I was back was in 2007 and i was with a load of mates who were all red and like myself mid forties, so we faced no trouble. One evening on the train back to Bromborough after Milan beat us in the Cl final there were 4 Everton fans trying to be funny towards my mate and myself but we just told them to fuck off and they took the hint. In the city I heard a few things but in general there was no bother, it was a mass sea of reds before and after like. Even when I was in the city for days leading up to the game and after red fans were always outnumbering the Blues who were pretty quiet and looking miserable, as you would supporting that shite. I remember after the game getting a chippie/Chinese and eating it on these benches with mates outside a pub. I couldn't stomach more than a few mouth fulls and just left it. This bluenose came up to the table and asked if he could have it so I said 'Help yourself' We then heard his mates slagging him off when he went back to them. Fucking weirdos.

The thing is, you don't even need to mock them any more, do you? You go into work the next day, and you don't mention a thing. You know it's on the mind of every single blue, but you sit there and say nothing. All day, not a peep about the match. And you know they're dying inside. We're at the point now where you don't need to wind them up because they wind themselves up every time they think about it. It's Grandmaster Zen level mockery.

I am eagerly awaiting the announcement of the dream team of David Moyes and Tim Cahill coming into rescue  Everton. Feel so giddy, makes me wish I was an Everton fan.

The best way to annoy them is to not even acknowledge they exist. They have no other rivalry with any other club because they spend their entire existence obsessing about us. Taking away their only form of rivalry or opportunity for banter hurts them.

 

They have no rivalry with the Mancs because they support them when they play us and no one else in the country knows they exist or can be bothered having a rivalry with them.

Biggest hope/fantasy

 

It them or Newcastle on the last day 

We have the title wrapped up and still undefeated. Klopp plays the kids, we batter Newcastle, but they get a dodgy VAR pen with 10 to go. Go one nil up and we miss a pen in stoppage time. And watch them tumble. Then on to the  Ataturk for number

Ooooohhh. 

 

Hope he does a Napoli owner thing (in mafia style) and fines the lot of the fuckers. 


Probably Bye bye Silva, RIP. Another manager we've put the final nail in the coffin towards. We're getting good at this.

The trouble is now you can't really talk to them about football any more. These fucking loons from GOT who go on about RS conspiracies , even the middle aged fellas are buying into it. And it's twisting them all up and they no longer see the footballing world through any type of sane lense. It's a continuation of this blaming their shitness on heysel. It's easier to think there's a conspiracy than to accept their own failings and standing in the game. They're even mental enough to think while we're plotting with the fa and the refs and uefa, we're bothering to put them down at the same time. Like if we had the influence to throw a team under a bus we'd pick them? They think they're our biggest rival and worry, even though the only time we think about them is to laugh.

Bunch of weirdos mate. A nice long spell in the Championship would do them good. They can cheer on the team making the play offs only to fail when it counts.

Imagine you're a professional footballer and you get chewed out by some dork accountant who's rich because he's friends with a shady Russian business guy. Rock bottom.

An astonishingly thick Bluenose, even by Bluenose standards, was just on the radio, shouting very loudly, saying, 'Don't go backwards and get Moyes - we need to get Allardyce!' Because he shouted a lot, that ginger buffoon Adrian Dum-Dum gasped, 'Wow, what a call!' It was like the Brains Trust, 2019-style.

They have a long standing rivalry with Millwall, which they well be starting up again next season.
