I too appreciate some honest feedback from a red but have to ask (of the more bias ones) if you are so content wih your lot and think you were hard done to today (held by a "small" club) why are you bitching on here not on your own site? Seems to me it hurt you (and the fat potato headed spaniard)a lot more than you're letting on.

Well done Blues, I'll wake up feelin rough tomorrow but it'll be eased slightly by the thought of that battling display!

p.s. As Pat indicated, there seems to be a fine line between "big" and "small" clubs these days, winning the top prize between 15 (1991) and 20 (1987) years it seems???

Here are the comments I posted on the afore-mentioned RAWK about the contest today:

"Jaysus, the way folks are going on in here, you'd think we actually had a chance to win the league until today's result. Face it, it wasn't going to happen.
Many are disappointed with Everton's tactics, yet they created several chances, including one of the most dangerous, and admit it: they played well defensively (and FWIW, 4-5-1 is their regular formation). It wasn't all our failures in the attack; they DO have talent in back. Yobo and Stubbs were immense, Cahill won more headers (at least according to the commentator on the broadcast I saw on-line) than anyone else, Arteta disrupted our flow time and again and did well to neutralize Xabi.
Not the most aggressive game plan overall, but isn't that how teams usually play on the road? Sit back to defend, then hope to catch the other side in counter-attack. It's a credit to our team that their counter-attacks were limited, and usually amounted to nothing.
I thought our biggest problems were in the middle: Stevie and Xabi looked uncertain, and I think our attackers (especially Kuyt and Crouch) lost their confidence in the second half as their back line held up after the waves of attacks. Their final touch lacked conviction when they did get a chance to play the ball towards goal. Pepe and the back four were formidable, coming forward with conviction often enough, and Jermaine was our best attacking player today.
Bottom line... they played well enough to get the draw. I mean, geez, the passion with which you support our team is fine, but completely discrediting the other team's effort and talent makes it appear that you don't know what you're talking about. Roll Eyes
Of course, that's just me..."

Not sure what Rafa meant by "small club". I thought he was referring to a team with somewhat limited resources, as many on here admit.
But you shouldn't take too much offense. I mean, it's as harmless a comment as Moyes and Arteta's assertions that Merseyside is "mostly Blue". It's largely meaningless, and meant to get under your skin. If it did, then it worked.


Congrats on getting the draw, and keeping in European contention.

Fair post Steelered. It s good reading people who actually think about what they say. Throwing insults around on a web forum is childish and puerile. Anyone with sense would just ignore them and scroll on by!

Wake up folks....Beneath-us was trying to outsmart the media thats all.He know the media might have entitled as "The Big Reg Flops Of MersySide" in the morning papers so escape that he called us small team.But he should be ashamed as now people around the world will scrutinise into the Big $$ red flops ever more. Its sheer desperation that his BIG FLOPS were not able to win a small squad of quality,brave and honest players (unlike diving beanpole P.Crouch shite) and maybe he wanted to see one or two blues being sent off so that they can have some space but all that did not happen.Eventually what he and the Big Red Flops got was a slap on their face for definitely we were are the better side in Liverpool!!!


Big Red Flops Vs Small Squad Quality Blues and the results has been 0-0 and quality blues got 4 points out of six....full stop. Now the Mersyside flops can go and fcuk themsef!

ow my god what was that mate. just think how long that took you and how shite it is. you must be a slight excuse of a human being to spend your time coming up with that. you say we should play like men not boys. you need to take the fact you cant score aginst us and take it like men and stop acting like little boys

Cheers for that mate, it's a good read. I wonder if Benitez is feeling a little foolish now that the press are ridiculing him for his 'small-minded' comments.

As a staunch Evertonian, I would like to offer the following as an apology to R. Benitez - "the special needs one".

I am so sorry a "smaller" team came to your hallowed halls and failed to fall into line with your plan to exact revenge for the buttf*cking you recieved earlier in the season.

I understand you plan was to put three forwards on the pitch and destroy us with your goalscoring prowess and yet we failed to allow that to happen, we had the temerity to defend and play for a result which would ultimately benefit us and not you.

Finally, I would like to offer an apology for D. Moyes, who decided to play in a manner that didn't fall into line with your tactics, that was thoughtless of him and showed you little respect, which you obviously feel is due to you.

Now if you would be so kind as to take a long run up and go f*ck yourself.

I got 2 pages into this and got bored, big club, small club how is that defined??

Are we using club history to define the size of a club? I fear we are and I fear more for the gobshites over the park living in the past if we are.

I had the history argument in the pub last night and just to prove a point bearing in mind I'm 25 and everyone younger than me in the pub was an Evertonian I asked this question.

5 times, name the years you won the 5 times?

Not one of them from old to young could tell me and these were the people arguning. The only response was more living in the past with the magic 18 mentioned quite alot. I'm hitting below the belt with this but I'm saying it all the same if any gobshite wants to play the numbers game with me in earshot then along with 5 & 18 you also need to include 39 & 96.

Now live in the past if you want but remember you can not wipe out chunks of history you dont like and place the best bits up high for the world to see!

Rafa is just a fat spanish waiter and he was told repeatedly at anfield yesterday!

Got as far as the Johnson diving comment which is so ridiculous considering the antics of Crouch and the ugly dutch fella that it makes the rest of the article totally unworthy of my time.

Can't wait for them to get stuffed by Barca now (another small team) and for the cries of Rafa out to begin the hypocritical twats!

Firstly it gives me no great pleasure at all to say that your team earned their point against us, well done. We should have broken you down, by playing football. But instead we played straight into your hands with the long balls. Ah well !

It seems most are in uproar about Rafa's comments the "smaller club". But what about Moyes' comments when he first took over stating everton are the peoples club. I mean he, Gollum sorry Moyes put his foot in it their so ........

Very tastless indeed, infact thats pretty sick to bring the death of many Liverpudlians into it. It just goes to show how your lot have become more and more bitter over the years :(

Yeh I agree.

Though in the ashes of a derby on a Blues message board, there is always going to be a minority of posts in reagrd to those sort of comments. Especially in light of the Benitez comments post match it's easy to refer to in a defense mechanism type after the usual banter & harmless name calling subsides

Not condoning - & I personally Cringe @ such, but tis life isnt it - It got what it was meant to do - A reaction.

People here no my Hillsborough stance & that I wont have a bad word said.

But I am not everybody & each 2 his own.

P.s after all subisdes whatever anyone says, the Derby is still MASSIVE for both the divide's & I dont care what anyone says.

It may be a bigger game wise these days to many of us -> But the simple fact it riles you lot & you tell us how small we are & that your big games are against the top 4 sides only goes to prove that it really does still Desperatly MATTER & Long may it live.

:)

I'm not bringing death into anything mearly making the point that if you (all liverpool fans) choose to reflect on the past so often you need to realise there is more history at Liverpool football club than success and it is a desgrace to the families of those involved in Italy that you forget so easily but still look to place blame elsewhere regarding that afternoon in Sheffield.

Live in the past then accept it all or shut your fuckin mouths and live in the now!

We're talking about football or the history of it on the pitch. We can live in the past if we want and we can gloat as much as we want. To bring those trauma's into it proves your bitterness and how you infact live in our shadow.

hahaha anyone see this comment -

"Itís amazing how sad you redshite cunts are. A shit second division team who bored their way to countles championships in the 1970ís by playing the most negative keep ball football England had ever seen. Your amazing fan base comes from Scandinavia, the Home Counties and the far east but never from Liverpool. Youíre about to sell your sorry arses to a multiple bankrupt, sub-Glazer and you spend millions each year in search of a premier League you will never win simply because you are a shite club. The best bit of all, is that you get so wound up by such a small club as Everton. Our cup final? Itís your sad little obsession. And you canít fuckin beat us. 3-0 to the Peopleís Club. Youíll never find a Liverpool fan on Merseyside. You thick Scandinavian banjo playing inbreds."

Why oh why do people argue with these people?

Its obvious to us all that they're so pissed off and bitter that they didn't win that they come on an opposition forum and instead of having a little banter, like you won't be so lucky next time they try and make a childish argument.

I also recall that Liverpool fans, as well as Everton fans sing, who's that dying in the runway. So calling us bitter, trying to shame us in singing about Stevie G's baby. Also about the defensive thing, do you recall watchin numerous of games where Liverpool played a similiar formation but sometimes a 10-0-0 formation, CL final anyone?

Now this isn't a argument, what I'm saying is fact so don't bother and its pretty much likely I won't reply again at your woeful attempts to bring us down to your level.

All the best :huh:

just posted this but it got deleted, don't know why.

the argument is just benitez blowing smoke. the whole thing is a little silly and just shows he does'nt know too much about the "size" of certain clubs. we shouldn't be called a small club, if we are then surely teasm such as spurs (living in shadow of chelski/ arsenal) should be called small teams.

the premiership is not made up of 4 big teams and 16 small ones.
