First of all may I add my congratulations to the boys for a job well done. Mikel's performance was sublime.
I sat up last night to watch the coverage on Match of the Day and was happy to see us on second, granted Bolton's result over Man Utd probably deserved top billing. Now, I'm not one of these that subscribes to the conspiracy theory of BBC bias toward Liverpool FC (excepting the fact that both first choice pundits always want to turn the subject to that of the red half), but what do we have to do to get more airtime than our neighbours?
I checked it out and yes the difference was small, but given the torpid nature of Liverpool's brand of football, what do we have to do? It's our biggest win for I think 16 years, but events at St James' Park somehow warranted more coverage and discussion. Do we need an alien mothership to land on the centre circle at half time or something? Is a 7-1 thrashing with the best performance this year by any Spanish player in the league simply not good enough?
Sometimes you really have to wonder...

The last few years have been OK, nice and regular... until yesterday.
All I have to say is Andy Johnson, Leon Osman... Thanks very much. I am already knackered and she is demanding two more efforts.

Is there a better reason for this or does Yak just have a wicked sense of humour? If so fair play to the lad!

If that is true about Gilberto, then I am 100% in agreement with Terry Downes, get him in. A world cup winner with top level premiership & champs league experience, its a no brainer that. Keeps Cars on his toes (outstanding the last few weeks btw) and keeps Moyes philosphy that the reason we are playing so well is because we have quality to come in from the bench/squad which we have............NEVER had before!!
"We’re on the march with Moysey’s army, we’re all going to man city"..........etc etc

Well done Mr Moyes. You’ve made my weekend complete!

The fact is that as a combination Liverpool & Newcastle are bigger than Everton & Sunderland - the fact that Sunderland were poor is semi-expected due to their newly promoted status.
In the Liverpool game, there is the 'Liverpool playing well' aspect & the 'Newcastle falling to pieces with Allardyce under threat already' angle.
Plus the pundits were Shearer (ex Newcastle) and Lawrenson (ex Liverpool) so the game was obviously of more interest to both parties.
Just relax, enjoy the result & try to remove the big red chip on your shoulder please.

We all watched it, we know how good Everton were, we know that we’re finally coming good this season. Who cares what MOTD, Lawrenson or SKY have to say about us.
