Splendid Win by the Blues

The media hoo-hah following Liverpool's ownership embarrassments continued with the appearence of John Henry representing new owners NESV.

Fellaini and Pienaar missing but Jagielka recovered from his international injury. Frr-kick, hoof ball and head tennis in the first minute, Liverpool eventually getting plenty of time on the ball. Carragher bringing down Yak was the first meanigful free-kick, Everton, having lost the toss, attacking the Gwladys, Osman winning the first corner.. Poor late trip by Arteta on Lucas earned him a lecture.

A goood move saw Yakubu cleverly win a dangerous free-kick off Skrtel on 10 mins, but Artete could only hit it off the wall, however Baines got the ball back in but Jagielka with a clear chance leathered it over the bar. All the pressure from Everton in the first 15, Distin getting in an excellent attempt on the turn. Gerrad clipped Arteta but screams for a yellow card were ignored as it nicely upped the crowd angst. Everton making Liverpool look poor, they had not come close to Tim Howard with 18 mins gone when Rodriges slid in late on Baines and won the first yellow off Howard Webb.

Liverpool's first spell of possession led to nothing but Torres got a header that Howard had to tip over the bar on the end of a cross from Cole. Everton pushed back but could not make possession count. Hoever, Yakubu went on a laboured run that was bloocked but Cahill got the ball back to him but his shot on target was as ever just far too weak.

Cahill got booked late for a lkick put at Gerrard that Webb kept in mind fo r three minutes, that made the crowd livid with raw anger. Liverpool wer resisting the Everton pressure. Merrellies was next in the book on the half-hour, tangling with Yakubu. But a fantastic run to the byeline by Coleman changed the game, when he clipped the ball back off Skrtel to Cahill who smashed it first time into the top corner of the net, an excellent goal!

Osman tried to repat the Coleman trip but only won a corner as he limped away from Skrtel's challenge. Arteta's corners were defended away but Osman stopped proceedings for treatment and Liverpool weathered another storm of urgent Everton attacking that did not produce a clear chance. When Liverpool did attack, they looked thankfully nervous and out of sorts.

A good first half performance by Everton, who had carried the game to Liverpool in the required manner and well dominated proceedings, creating and taking the best chance but with the luck that has been basent so far this season, they could have scored from three other chances. Bilyaletdinove replaced Osman for the second half.

Rodriguez got an early strike straight at Howard as the Reds looked to respond. Bily's first touch won a corner that Baines put in well, and it was headed clear by that Greek twat straight to Mikel Arteta who stuck the ball perfectly with fearsome power straight past Reina and into the net in fantastic style. Exceellent stuff!

Some great work down the right was spoilt by an awwful cross from Neville as Goodison rocked and rolled with merriment. A greaat ball from Heitinga to Bily wide left looked to create something but the Yak's airshot on a perfect cross was hopeless. Gerrard's corner, thankfully, was far worse as Liverpool looked a beaten side. But Everton were now vsibly backing off, dangerously allowing the reds more and more time on the ball but they were thankfully kept well away from the goal.

The hour-mark... time for Beckford to make his mark? No, said Moyes, who would wait a little longer, Yakubu playing well but not scoring, and Arteta looking to be the one to go off. But Heitinga went down with a calf strain and Hibbert replaced him on 72 mins after Ngog came on for Liverpool. Whata we have, we hold. Now putting the Reds to the sword. Arteta started limping badly and Beckford did finally come on in his place. 4-4-2?!?! At home! Astounding!

Beckford got a very unfair yellow on almost his first touch, presumably for a tackle on Skrtel frin behindm despite winning the ball. He then put the ball in the net after the whistle had gone. Skrtel then clipped Beckford's ankle in the area but nothing from Webb as the game moved into the last crucial 10 mins. Beckford was a clumsy, unpolished handful, getting right on Skrtel.

But Everrton were now defending with some desparation, the ball repeatedly coming back from every clearnace as Everton lurched on the backfoot. Beckford relived the pressure, winning a corner after more great play from Yakubu. Liverpool broke from the Everton corner but a chance for Gerrard was pleasingly driven well wide as the Eveonians sensed a perfect victory over the Dark Side and their new owners to contemplate. Torres got in a good shot but Howard saved it very well to keep his precious clean sheet.

Skrtel came through on Beckford, giving more respite but a bizarre free-kick form Cahill was totally wasted and Liverpool attacked again. Cahill stole the ball off Gerrad beautifully and the ball got out to Beckford for his moment of glory... but he fluffed it badly. More somewhat desparate defending punctuated the final 4 added minutes, incuding another great intercepiion by Distin. Yet the Liverpool shots kept coming in from Torres and Moreilles... and as each one missed the Gwladys Street goal, the Blue cheers got louder and louder until Webb blew the final whistle and the dirty red twats slinked away... totally defeated.

NICE!

A happy report btw Michael.....

I thought Yakubu was good value today, just hope that he can take 2 defenders with him every week and open up for the Cahill's and Arteta's etc.

Good defensive effort in the last 20 minute, although I was a little nervous at times as we still leave too many openings. But the players looked absolutely knackered in the last 10-15 mins mostly due to the appreciated efforts of the first half.

I cant fault the effort of the players, and was a little disappointed that Beckford didn't quite turn it into the net at the end. I'd love to see him with the confidence of a goal behind him.

Onward and upward, or is it nil satis nisi optimum???

Great to see the Yak battering ram back too- a couple of immense moments which made me laugh! MOTM today probably Distin for me, who kept Nancy Boy quiet all game, plus the whole of the RS side, who were even worse than expected!

Great win today. Was worth not sleeping for 2 days worrying about this game. Really good performance from everyone especially in the first half. Injuries are building up though so we will see how the youngsters do if called up. We could possibly be right up there if we had taken full points from the Fulham and Villa game as we deserved.

Just wrote out a massive bloody thing with player ratings and everything. Hit submit and the router had died whilst I'd been writing and I lost it all. Gutted.

Whatever though, we won, that's about the gist. Everyone played well, except Heitinga who was out of position and was shite.

Yak was excellent - particularly that shoulder charge. Osman was the best player on the pitch till he went off. Everyone was closing down, but Osman was the only one sprinting to close down. Cahill was Cahill. Carragher will have nightmares about Cahill for a while.

Anyone else think Beckford was like a greyhound chasing after a fake rabbit? Ran like hell but didn't know what to do when he got it. Good move by Moyes bringing him on though, exactly what we needed.

And lastly, as much as I like Bily, and you have to feel sorry for him (not sure why), he was shite today.

At last, something good. I watched the match in a bar full of reds and frankly, they were too gutted to engage even in the most gentle of banter. I thought Yakubu was magnificent and Coleman justified the praise I've heaped on him for months. These are the days . I've given David Moyes quite a bit of stick recently. Today he was right and it is great to be wrong.

watching the Blackpool v City, and the frustrating thing is that if we could've added to our squad close season with quality players, Donovan & and a quality striker, we would've been there or thereabout. Out of the sky 4, the RS, say no more; Utd are a shadow of their former self, even Chelsea, although the team to beat aren't as frightening as they were, and City flatter to deceive. Only Arsenal are performing how you would expect them to.

Great display and my only disappointments were bad decisions from Howard Webb which should have seen Gerrard walk but not even get a single yellow, a nailed on penalty, Heitinga looked like he wasn't arsed, Osman looked great before the RS tried to cripple him, would love to see the Beckford goal again as it looked like the ball hadn't gone out of play.

All round deserved winners and to see their fans scurrying away like rats, my sincerest thanks to the fat RS fan who through the ball at Neville thus wasting time at the end of the first half, fucking knob end and the two young bell ends walking out at the end waving five fingers at the Park End, still trying to work out if thats how many games they think they have left to save the season or how many they'll win all season.

Daniel (24). Do you not think that might be partly related to the fact that Osman (kicked off the pitch), Heitinga and Arteta (kicked around the pitch all day as they do) had to go off injured i.e almost all of the today's first choice midfield which wasn't first choice in itself. With more options more positive changes could've been made to keep momentum.

Let's enjoy the win.

I can't talk after that but thouroughly enjoyed taking the piss out of the shite from the Park End today; it was a dream watching their fans all going home towards the end of the second half - they really are the worst fans around aren't they.

But what a team performance with special mentions going to Coleman, Cahill, Jags etc - the MOM goes to Distin for a truly World Class game.

Well done also to Moyse for keeping the pathetic news coverage we've all had to watch and listen to regarding those wankers all week, away from the players.

Great game today. Thought MOM was between Timmy and Distan. Distan played out of his skin today and was immense.

Cahill is fast becomming legend material.

Did get worried like most us in the second half, one goal for them and onset of sqeaky bum time for us.

Great save by Howard near the end from Torres.

Thought both sides really tired midway through the second half and a good call from Moyes to bring on Beckford.

All in all a happy day. Lets enjoy, forget about our useless board and put all the redshite fans to the sword at work this comming week.

All of the above missed either all of the game or a large chunk of it, which is why Everton had to change their tactics, as we had no midfield, Mr Moyes actually saying in his interview he was happy for Liverpool to have possession as they were doing nothing with it.
I had to laugh at Mr Hodgsons assertion that Liverpool were the better side and deserved to win - unbelievable.
But the incident that re affirms why I am a Blue is the efforts of the Liverpool players trying to make Mr Webb give Beckford a 2nd yellow card, truly disgusting shit houses.

I know people get reactionary about defeat and victory but, while we have had a crap start, we're actually not far off the pace re: the top 4. If we can put a good run together we could yet have a decent season. I would love it......absolutely love it......if the RS were relegated. Mind you, the rules would probably get changed to allow the gobshites to stay up.
Looking forward to MOTD2 (for once).

I agree with Hodgson - thought the RS were outstanding today. Keep up the good work Roy!

What a fantastic result.

If that game did not show Tim Cahill's doubters that he is pivotal to Everton then I don't think anything ever will. An absolute immense performance from Tim Cahill. The best bit was when he ran past and rubbed Carra on the head as if to say better luck next time.

I have never understood how anyone can regularly watch Everton play and question whether Cahill should be first choice or not.

Steve and Stuart (#43 and #46). Broughton was explaining to Henry that the big white thing was called a ball. And that when one or several of these were in the air, it is known as a ?balls up.? Which is what happens when you spend £300 million on something called ?The Shite.? Now without doing any due diligence, don?t you think he might have spotted the clue to a potential problem with his investment, contained within the aforementioend name of his acquisition?

Sorry about all this crap, lads, I?m just happy.

Just home and watching recording fromSky
Though I know the 2 pricks are experts at it I cannot believe how Gerrard and Carragher get away with so much chatting to the ref. usually trying to get players booked. Unbelievable.
Good all round the park today. Osman excellent and well up for it before getting crocked.
Cahill immense
Yak played well especially when he sent that shit Lucas into the Bullens
Heitinga was good showing that prick Gerrard no respect whatsoever, niggling him throughout.
Now is the time to kick on

Everyone played well. Special mention to Jags, Coleman, Yak and Cahill. Probably the poorest away following I have seen for a long time.

It's games like this, standing in the Lower Gwladys, that renew your belief in Everton as a "proper" football club (as my W Ham mates refer to us)

Superb - From start to end. Every player was awesome. Especially pleased for Yak - sharpest he has been since his injury.

Pissed off that Cahill came away with a yellow after the Neanderthal that is Carragher spent 90 minutes trying to mug him !!

All in all a good day and the RSs new owners must be wondering why their billion dollar investment just got comprehensivley stuffed by their so called poor neighbours!

Wonderful performance. A timely reminder from the Yak, made an outstanding contribution today. Tim Cahill often criticized as a midfielder gave a majestic performance when he dropped back into the middle of the park and was my MothM. Silvan Distan who has struggled to date had his best game yet. Osman too surprised me up until his injury. However, I thought young Coleman did a terrific job today. So much for those who said he couldn't run at defenders, produced the best move of the game. Added to that he covered Neville at right back on countless occasions effectively he did a job for us up front and at the back. We really need to see more of this lad. The team did us proud today.

Loved Richard Williams in the Guardian:

"While Jagielka and Sylvain Distin were subduing Fernando Torres ? not the most demanding of tasks, given the disappearance of every trace of coltish spring from the Spanish striker's stride ? up at the other end Sotirios Kyrgiakos and Martin Skrtel were being led a harrowing dance by Yakubu Ayegbeni, who scattered them time and again like an armoured car sent into battle against spear-throwers."

The only negative of the day would be Woy's comments in his post match press conference. His opinion of the shite's performance will, unfortunately, be enough to see his services dispensed of this side of bonfire night by the loveable yanks. Just when we needed him to stay longer, much like the FSW a few years ago, longer in order to really fuck up the club to it's foundations. Agent FSW, your work is appreciated and clearly being reprocated by Uncle Woy. Love it.

Great win today! Great passion! It really showed that we wanted to win. We were almost always first on the second ball, and one player that really stood out in the first half, was Leon Osman. It was a shame, he had to come of.

Everyone can see that players like Neville and Cahill are so important to the team. They never hide and always gives more than 100 percent. The same can be said about Jagielka, who was a surprise starter. I think Moyes took a gamble here and it paid off. Liverpool have said for almost a week that Torres will play, witch gave Moyes an advantage as he could prepare for it. Hodgson took for certain that Jagielka would not play, so Liverpool were taken by surprise there. Great management by Moyes. Jagielka was my MOTM.

It sounds funny though that some people here think that Moyes did good substitutions. Did he have any choices? Three players limping of injured and he changed them like for like. He only had three senior players available on the bench so that was no rocket science...

A superb, long over due win for us, over the evil RS no less. Have to say, i absolutely loved watching Gerrard and Carragher sulking around in a daze after the match.

But after a totally one-sided Merseyside derby which we bossed pretty much from start to finish, all the media could talk about after the match was "Liverpool this and Liverpool that."

Here in Malaysia every week, we get ?treated? to pearls of wisdom from that judas twatfuck Steve McMahon. After the match yesterday, it was all " Should Roy go/ what will the new Yanks think/ what should Gerrard, and Torres should do next etc etc....

Even in my state of heightened euphoria at the result ( The Yak was brilliant wasn?t he? In fact, everybody pretty much had a solid game), the Liverpool inquest straight after the game was nauseating to say the least. I mean, would it hurt these arseholes to give credit where its due?

Ah well...Agent Roy, carry on the good work. In Hicks And Gilett We Trust.

What concerns me more though, is why we always sit back after scoring...sure 2-0 but crying out loud if that'd been any other team out there they'd have come back quite easily.

There was quite a lot of shocking defending out there from the likes of Jags in particular is one trick pony is just too hoof it anywhere.

This really really needs addressing, you can't just switch off for almost the entire second half of a match. I thought Everton fell asleep quite a few times, and thankfully the shite where incapable of punishing us.

Make no mistake with Fellaini out, Arteta injured and other players getting injured...the march up the table is now on.

Hardly a coincidence we win when the team has to pick itself..


Anyhoo excellent win...shite to go down!

What a fantastic long weekend! Porcupine Tree at The Royal Albert Hall (stunning) on Thurs, not losing to my just turned 18 year old nephew at snooker - he's a red too, Boy it made my old back hurt on Sunday morning. Followed on Sunday by us crushing the RS. It could only have been improved by Kylie dressed as a French maid greeting me at the front door after the game!

ps: My head's almost stopped thrumming,

pps: Mustn't get too carried away, we've only gone and beat a very poor team after all. I've been watching derby games since 1970 and I cannot remember a more listless team in red. Long may it continue.

Just want to register my delight with the result and the way Everton played. I wondered if Osman would show us that he is an Evertonian; he certainly did that. Yakubu continued his level of performance, Arteta was class and if Big Dunc is to be considered a legend then Cahill must be approaching deity. I've never seen a player like Coleman. He does not look like a Premier League standard player to me but he is so effective. A breath of fresh air.

Such a hangover today but well and tryuly worth it. Well done blue boys.

Fantastic result - absolutely battered them. Favourite moment of the match (apart from the two goals) was the sholder barge from the Yak that flattened Meireles - priceless!

One slight thing reading the posts - people (commenators included) seem to be raving about DM bringing on Beckford as a positive move. >{?Now I may be wrong but looking at the bench there was not really any other option. The only players left were Baxter, Gueye and Mustafi. Still it was the right move but doubt DM would have made it if he had a seasones midfielder or defender left on the bench.

Still fuck it, am being pedantic - COOOOYYYYYBBBBB!!!!
