I’m really glad other fans can see how the media manipulate the narrative in this country.Everton fan here, in peace of course.
Long time listener, first time caller.
Seeing the footage of those idiots on Friday night had my blood boiling, attacking police and firing rockets at the listed and most iconic of buildings in Liverpool, the Liver Building. The latest in a long list of embarrassing displays by the self proclaimed best fans in the world. As somebody on here already said, if that had been City, United or Everton, the media would have gone to town with the story for days. The fact that it's already almost forgotten and whitewashed over, speaks volumes. Some media outlets reported the rocket as one stray firework despite footage from various sources showing deliberately aimed rockets by various different people.
Some of their fans are using the excuse that the Liver building being lit up in blue was asking for trouble. like that justifies it. The building was actually lit up in red, white and blue to commemorate National forces day, even so, why would you try to damage one of the most prized buildings in the city?
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is don't tar all us scousers with the same brush, we're not all like that, especially Evertonians, I remember Everton playing Rapid Vienna in Rotterdam in 85 in the Cup Winners Cup final, 30000+ Evertonians and only 1 arrest! the following week was Heysel, and we all know what happened there. The European ban on all English clubs arguably affected Everton more than any other club, we were champions that year with our best ever side.
Anyway, good luck for the rest of the season, for what that's worth.
they didn't need anyone ,they had VAR.I was surprised they could mount such a sustained assault on the league title because they didn't buy anyone last summer. Plus, their forward line is thread bare, an injury to mane or Firmino & they were in deep trouble. Salah is hot & cold these days -ridiculously one-footed too- so I haven't included him with the other 2.
You're correct. But knuckle dragging rocket launchers thought it was because Everton owner Farhad Moshiri (who owns a large stake of Liver Building) lit it up blue to wind dippers up.Im sure it was Red, White and Blue for Armed Forces day. I may be mistaken, but doubt i am :)
