Chuffed to bits with the way we're playing, and the results we're getting... but I couldn't help notice the war of the baddies this weekend. Skeletor v's Voldemort... who do you want to win, or don't you care?
Other than the obvious bomb being dropped, I'd like to know what outcome is favoured by Evertonians. I also wonder if your opinion changes if you live in or away from Merseyside.
I've been travelling to home and away games regularly for about 15 years (since I could drive!) but wonder if there's more support for the RS from Evertonians living in Liverpool when they play the Mancs.
I personally always want ManUre to win.
Your thoughts please... and don't forget to say if you're from Merseyside or not. I'm not!

OK, Man Utd to win :)
7 Posted 14/12/2007 at 16:37:03
Failing that I have to go for a Utd win cos I cannot bear the daft, dont go to the game, deluded kopite pricks telling me how fucking good they are after every game who congregate in pubs by ours and pretend they used to go but its too much now (there must of been 150,000 in the ground mate when the played st etienne....lying twats)

Are we "Nil Satis Nisi Optimum" or are we just "as long as we beat Liverpool, everything is good enough?
Perhaps we didn?t notice that if both teams drew, and we won on Sat, we are only 1 point behind Liverpool, and 7 behind ManU?
Can you imagine what that does for morale (players and supporters) going into this season of games? C?mon, let?s not aim to just better the Reds and see them lose.
per chance given this season of tight title race, we can even best our previous best of top 4?

Live in Hampshire but from Merseyside.
13 Posted 14/12/2007 at 17:15:25
Although to brutally honest, I think we need to concentrate more on creating our own gap on teams below us like Blackburn, West Ham etc. I think we look as though we are going to be the only team that consistently challenges for top 6, the others are going to come and go year in and year out.

I hope Liverpool loses tomorrow and every other game they play and get relegated and go into administration and gets kick out of Liverpool so that there can only be one team in Liverpool. Period. (I also hope WR kisses that badge after he scores that goal and gets poisoned by some careless anti rat spray, that scum)
18 Posted 14/12/2007 at 17:32:34
He leads them to relegation by then end of the season. All Evertonians live happy ever after.
Sounds a bit harsh but I hate the gobshites and would like nothing better.

Then fat arse Rooney scores four in front of the Norwegian kopshites.
Happy Christmas to all you blues.
20 Posted 14/12/2007 at 17:57:01
Whoever said that a draw wud be gud as it leaves us 1 point behind em if we beat w ham? If utd stuff em n we beat w ham surely that means we go above them does it not? We have more to gain by a utd win at this stage.
however if at the end of the season if we needed a team immidiately above us to lose and they were playin lpool who were no where nr us in the league ie a win for them wouldnt affect us then that will be the only circumstance of wanting them to win.
And ive lived in both leeds n liverpool - and have a natural distaste for both sets of RS - oh and leeds as well

As it turned out we lost that game AND the shite won the Championship.
25 Posted 14/12/2007 at 19:01:00
Why would anybody want the RS to win a game, especially after all the shite we have had to put up with, from them, over the years.
BTW not scouse and live in USA.
Blue for Ever(ton).

I’d always support Liverpool, ahead of United, otherwise. I’m from Liverpool, why would I support Manchester ahead of Liverpool team?
Just my take.
29 Posted 14/12/2007 at 19:26:36
10 mins to go when the Potato Farmers In Need plane destinied for Dublin from Leeds-Bradford with an urgent load of steaming bovine fertiliser accidentally jettisons all 50 tons of it over Analfield.
Only the patrons of the highest hospitality boxes survive, all Norwegian businessmen apparently - apart from The Spanish Waiter who was giving executive relief to Gillette and Hicks.
Everyone else in the ground drowns/suffocates, and Evertonian Ray Stubbs utters the immortal words on BBC " The game between the Red Shite and Manure has been abandoned because Anfield is full of shit"

Man Utd to win 3-0.
Gerrard to wrecklessly tackle Ronaldo. Ronaldo breaks his leg and gets carried off. Gerrard (refereed by Clattenburg) given yellow card. Gerrard then 2-footed challenge on Rooney. Rooney breaks his leg, Gerrard gets 2nd yellow and out of game. Then Rio Ferdinand comes running over and giving a nice knock out punch to Gerrards face as he is leaving the pitch. Referee pulls out a red for Rio. Then a cowboy style brawl happens in the whole pitch.
When the dust has settled. Only left with Reina and Van De Sar.

I’m a scouser and my family is mixed. Half red half blue so really I can’t hate them except for Derby day. I have friends, cousins, aunties and uncles etc from the dark side so its not actually real hate as you can’t hate your family. Probably similar with alot of scouse Blues.
Who do I want to win tomorrow? Man utd without a doubt.
41 Posted 15/12/2007 at 00:47:59
*Red Devils play the Red Shite- a blockbuster game?
*Personally i think that the match-up is lame
*Both teams are filled with many a cheat
*So ideally to both teams id wish defeat
*But since i can choose only one of the two
*I choose the team id love to flush down the loo
*Hope the RS lose with Gerrard seeing red
*And Carra scoring an own goal with his head
*Sir Alex will come on and gloat about the win later
*But the best will be excuses from the fat,moaning Spanish waiter!

Man Utd. Brisbane Australia

Liverpool born. Lived in the US since the 1970s. San Francisco since 1982.
Bit of trivia ... Everton were the reigning champions when the league was suspended for WW1 and WW2. So Everton have been the reigning champions for 20 years compared to 18 for Liverpool and 16 for United :-)
44 Posted 15/12/2007 at 07:51:43
After the Rs won the Champions League they all tried to say that there were 1.5million people lining the streets to watch their parade.Think about it. Every single person in Liverpool, red or blue, along with their dogs,cats etc, plus most of the population of Merseyside,the Wirral, and some from Greater Manchester, would have to have turned out to reach that figure.....doesn?t sound feasible to me. I mean, I didn?t go to watch,did you?

Get a bit of perspective here events such as Heysel, Hillsborough and Rhys Jones should really have made us recognise that when events affect the City of Liverpool we all suffer regardless of our team.
We are playing some great stuff at the moment get behind our team and forget about them.

I am a very proud blue Scouser but now live in Carmarthen.
Happy Christmas to all Evertonians and hopefully, a fantastic 2008 for the Blues.

Ed Fitzgerald: would you prefer ’apparent Liverpool supporters, some of whom allegedly may have been involved in possibly causing the deaths of peope at a football match’? And, no, we’re not as bad as each other.
As for LFC in-city support; ’74.35% of LFC season ticket holders hold addresses ouwith the L and WA postcodes’ Leicester University Abram College Football Study Group 2005

For me, it just reinforces my personal position regarding the standards we want to uphold on the website, and this thread falls well below that bar.
From now on, one rule we will strictly enforce is Everton Only!
55 Posted 15/12/2007 at 17:50:43
But if United only score 1 goal, then after 17 games of the season, we are the 2nd highest scorers in the league ? so much for boring Everton!
Now which one would you prefer? (Except you know it is going to be 2-0 for United so we get neither! :-) )
56 Posted 15/12/2007 at 21:06:34
57 Posted 16/12/2007 at 00:43:11
Yes, I live on Merseyside.
58 Posted 16/12/2007 at 10:18:15
Are you saying that there are more Evertonians in the City of Liverpool than Liverpool fans (do you have the evidence for that statement) I hope you are right. Like you I have quoted that data but what does it prove, it proves more LFC season tickets holders live outside the city, eh thats it!
As for who I prefer I follow Everton but there are Evertonians who indulge in racist abuse and bigotry do I prefer them to a passionate but reasoned fan of another club, no of course I dont! , do you simply because they follow Everton?
I take it you were both at the semi final at Villa when we found out what had happened at Hillsborough did it occur to you that as much as we love everton and hate LFC there are more important things in life. As for the song at the end of the Derby, as I said there are dickheads on both sides, I am just not keen to join their ranks.

After two great weekends when we've been Singing The Blues (Everton win, LFC lose) I keep thinking we've just hit the heights when another one comes along. Last week it was the second half against Fulham then the Reading result. Then the Carling Cup match then 2-0 away to West Ham.
While decorating the house this afternoon I enjoyed listening to Man U's victory (and those wonderful kopites showing themselves up again by throwing a golf ball at Rooney) but surely that's it - the weekend can't get any better can it? Well, I'm now sitting here listening to the post match phone-in on Radio Merseyside and all those poor reds crying into their arsenic. It's wrong to snigger like this but I just can't help it.
There are some rumours about their ground funding being in doubt which could be quite funny. There are no calls for the head of Beneathus on today's phone-in so maybe another high will be him signing a new 5-year deal? Hopefully, Chelsea can do them in to Carling Cup this week.
Christmas is a time for giving so I'm going to give lots of stick to reds this week. Apparently, the reds have no money to secure the services of Mascherano so I also think Moyesey should get some revenge in the transfer window by offering £15 million for him, (he wouldn't come to a "smaller club" would he?) upping his price and starting a transfer war for his services. That would be another high in my bitter little world.
There are some tough games over Christmas for us but I'm enjoying this while I can. The work-rate and attitude is first class from the Blue Boys and long may it continue. Well done, D.M. Merry Christmas to all BLUES. COYB.
