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.

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.
I’m really glad other fans can see how the media manipulate the narrative in this country.

Everton fans are normally mint, so I don’t think it has anything to do with Liverpool as a City. It’s just the ‘culture’ of one club that is disgusting and rotten to the core.

The statement attacking the mayor who said Liverpool fans would gather and ignore social distancing- guess what? He was right. They are just morally bankrupt, and that’s just the higher ups! No wonder the fans act like caged degenerates if that’s the example set by the club itself.

The message from the outset from VAR was for advantage to be given to Liverpool win the league. This was seen as a means generating more Premier League revenue to the benefit of the also rans clubs owners by selling the media story. VAR was consistently applied against City or ignored when in doubt from the outset. Media attacks on City and players served to further undermine competition. The Club and players knew what was going on and it had a detrimental effect.

We had already seen the campaign against Raz orchestrated through the media by Liverpool. Probably the most racist and by the most hypocritical of clubs.

The problem is it all went too far for too long and a lack of injuries meant Liverpool were seen to be walking the Premier League. Their failure in other domestic competitions has been ignored, putting them on a par with Blackburn and Leicester yet to read the hype, they are the best English team ever.

Unforeseen defeat against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League put paid to claims that Liverpool the best team in Europe and highlighted they have not qualified as champions since the inception of the Premier League. Liverpool and their fans are tainted and should forever have an asterisk against their name for besmirching the game in so many ways so many times.
