I wish everyone would stop with this 'we are being robbed by a conspiracy' shite.
We've had a few decisions go against us, fair enough, but enough is enough. I will go as far as to say that the Clattenberg derby was an unbelievable exhibition of a referee being influenced by the opposition. The yellow/red card switch left me gobsmacked.
But let's face it, if we hadn't fallen apart against Fulham and the shite at their place, we'd still be 4th.
The dirty half of Merseyside must be pissing themselves listening to all this whining about our lot being cheated by the powers that be.

What about the disallowed goals agianst West Ham (h) and Blackburn (a). What about the penalty decisions that have not gone for us?
We may have been closer to 3rd???
Anyway heres to cheering on the lads so that we do at worst finish the season in 5th.

But here's hoping we can show em no matter what you do to us we will prevail!!

I can only think of one thats gone in our favour, AJ’s goal at Sunderland, came off his elbow...Huh another well taken confident, crafted goal from AJ...but thats another matter!!!

Every single decision went our way so we should be happy enough with disallowed goals, we could and should have scored 5-6 goals every game to be sure we will win it, as for the penalties well they are not part of the game and they dont influence games.
Speaking about penalties there are at least 5 blatant handballs by Liverpool players this season (there were some video on Youtube) and they got away with all of them - winning 8 more points, now to be perfectly clear we were denied 2 regulate goals resulting in 4 lost points plus the home derby.
You see Richard that makes 14 points difference, somehow every time we are on the receiving end of a wrong decision and RS always get away with good ones but hey lets swallow it and wait for more next season

I just think where so much money is at stake with gambling syndicates, marketing of the Premier League, characters like Abramovich involved that you can’t say our national game is whiter than white and some kind of fixing doesn’t take place. I mean come on, it has worked in our favour in the past hasn’t it? (Hans Segers!)

We have had refs disallowing goals for no apparent reason, and they have given no reason.
What this says to me is not that they have been bribed (although Collina never reffed another game) but that they think we don’t deserve to win. Not because we are a dirty team (Leeds would have won nothing), but because we are not a "big" team.
This is the Sky agenda - promote their in-house favourites and they all make money together. The refs just go along. Let’s face it, if they put their heads above the parapet, they’ll never get to Wembley, will they.

As I’ve said before, Sky and the Premier League have an agenda and that is to make as much money as possible. They can make a lot more money if the status quo remains with those top 4.

I completely agree with you! I find it pathetic that so many Evertonians can be such sore losers in the race for 4th place. They completely ignore referee decisions that go in our favour and those that go against other clubs
13 Posted 11/04/2008 at 08:29:26
Thats at least 7 more points and if you take away "AJs elbow" goal (the only one i can think of right now!) we are still 4 points in credit which I think would put us a point clear in 4th??
Not saying there is a conspiracy but I do think that there are two types of luck on Merseyside - Our luck and their luck; I think you all know what I mean!!!

A blind person can see the corruption of the FA, Sky and ?certain? clubs. They know who they are. One of them virtually runs/owns the FA.
Oh,incidentally, Richard, I think you?ll find that Arsenal have just found this out the hard way, or did you have a ?Ray Milland? moment on Tuesday instead of on a weekend! Or maybe you are just better at ?pretending? not to care what the RS say

I will put it that way agianst Inter 2 red cards against Arsenal 2 dodgy penalty decisions in Liverpools way - clue - which is the official sponsor of Liverpool and CL.
Even the official in the firs game wa born few miles from the birthplace of a certain player, who should have benn penalised.
Now tell me the last time Everton got that sequence of decisions in their favour?
