This year’s final is between two clubs who haven’t actually won their domestic league in 29 and 58 years respectively and both finished second in their groups to get to the knockout phase.
Regardless, the match has enormous implications for the daily lives of Evertonians!

On standby for an early call tomorrow morning from a mate who does vehicle spraying/respraying.
He's been offered a great price to do a respray on a double decker bus. No roof involved so he reckons four hours work and a decent wedge for doing it.
I helped him out with one a couple of weeks ago (rush job) same thing, at the end of the EPL season actually.
That one took us seven hours though because I could NOT, no matter how much I tried, work efficiently for pissing myself laughing from start to finish!
It's a funny old world innit? ;-)

I see it going to extra time, and I see it being a tight game. Lets hope we get fair officials who arent taken in by their ability to fake and dive and cheer like no other team.
Now to pray and hope Spurs can do it.

Harry Kane now is the moment you can make yourself a true hero and guarantee you will be loved in every return to Goodison.
No way can I stand the celebration of these horrible red cocks tonight.

RS have too much fire power for the Spurs defence and if RS score in the first ten minutes it's game over.
I cannot see Kane being much of a threat even if he starts as he really won't be match fit.

I'm not going to watch it. I pay sky for their box sets, hd, movies & sports. Netflix, Amazon Prime and bollox if I'm paying even more to watch BT.
I cant see Spurs winning. But I've still bet Son to score a hat trick in a 3-0 win.

55 Posted 01/06/2019 at 21:03:12
The penalty like that is what they get most weeks.
Lets keep the faith and Spurs can still come back. They do need to stop the dodgy 6 yard cross the box passs, as they could play them selves into big trouble.
Spurs need to really believe and get into them and take no prisoners on the park.
Im certain Spurs can level and then win this game, take into extra time and win it.
56 Posted 01/06/2019 at 21:58:02
We must use their horrible success as a burning incentive to start winning trophies. Anything else just will not do.

I think Silva and Brands will do it for us, but it had better start immediately and we must sweat blood to win something next season.
63 Posted 01/06/2019 at 22:36:07
Its seriously bad for the health, watching these win, in what is in my view, the worst European Cup Final, Ive seen.
The stakes and the anti are now at critical point.
EFC, is in a position of increasing pressure to achieve. The levels and momentum of the last 30 years must be turned very soon.
Sick, and gutted., and that a feeling of, the bulk of my time watching, supporting EFC. Its a Biblical scourge..
Next season, is vital, no more scorning golden chances. The club must be serious, but chasing the dream has been like Icarus, and we have a squad of players not good enough, dont fit, score or gel and a couple of players at the end of their careers.
This tonight must send a message to the EFC board.

We will never compete with the best because we lack ruthless ambition, unforgivable to miss out twice financially.
They are the two we know about, how many others have there been? It's pathetic and so unfair on our great support.
67 Posted 01/06/2019 at 23:12:34
Well to me getting upset every time is a bit like moaning everyone you leave a casino having lost. Maybe it is that I am getting older, but nowadays tend to enjoy watching us play and sometimes win. But I never expect the casino to lose ultimately anymore.
68 Posted 01/06/2019 at 23:14:53
You obviously didnt watch Red Star Belgrade win it in 89 or was it 90? Talk about parking a bus. They turned their half into a bus terminal.
As for Liverpool it is what it is. Chin up, endure the ribbing, and hope for blue skies ahead
69 Posted 01/06/2019 at 00:07:27
Please, Everton, start acting like a club that wants to win things, I keep saying it but there has to be a mentality change at this club that can only come from the top. Please M&M, implement that change.
70 Posted 02/06/2019 at 00:13:24
Please, Everton, do something.
71 Posted 02/06/2019 at 00:33:54
What the chuff is this, a thread on that lot's Euro exploits? Bollocks to that.
Their ground is our cast off, the emblem on their crest now belongs to us. Without us they'd be nothing.
We stand tall, we stand proud, we are Everton.
72 Posted 02/06/2019 at 01:15:50
There are two people on Twitter who are both Manchester United supporters who wanted Liverpool to win. I do not think the majority of Manchester United supporters would have wanted them to win.
This is the second time that I have experienced Liverpool winning the Champions League and I hope they never win it again.

Another season passes and the biggest interest is who can stop Liverpool winning something whilst our season died of death back in January.
We need something more than just promise and another 8th place finish, no disrespect but that gets you nowhere, not while you sit and watch the city rivals celebrating winning and challenging for the biggest trophies every year.
For Everton a Cup must be number one target next season or a serious tilt at that top four (I truly believe outside the top two its pretty mediocre now).
77 Posted 02/06/2019 at 08:38:10
Fair play to them but what we have to remember is the Champions League is 13 games. I think they actually lost about 4 of them. Spurs didn't really turn up, I believe... I wouldn't know as I didn't watch it. Ironic I only knew Liverpool won when I heard fireworks going off, again probably from fans who couldn't even name their own team.
But it's only Liverpool who, after 23 seconds in a final, can get a penalty due to an apparent handball. I say 'apparent' as the new rules weren't in force yet, Sissoko is pointing to where he wants another Spurs player to be and more importantly to me... it looks like it hits his chest. But still it never happens to them. Imagine if that penalty was the other way round, there would be uproar.
As I said, fair play to them but jeeeeezzzzz they don't half get some luck. 2 pens in their last 3 Champions League finals now. Who writes this stuff.
Come on, Everton, do us all a favour and start the season well and win the Premier League before them, now that would be some party.
78 Posted 02/06/2019 at 08:38:28
It's the RS's first trophy in donkeys and I'd rather they won the Champions League than the Premier League. Man City are streets ahead and would have made worthier European Champions but, ultimately, that's football. The Champions League means nothing to me until we are regularly competing in it.
Anyway, just say "well done" to the dickheads if you meet them in the street, and let your thoughts turn to next season. If we make a couple of key signings, it should be a good one.
79 Posted 02/06/2019 at 08:47:59
80 Posted 02/06/2019 at 08:48:36
It was never going to be a proper game once the referee destroyed it at the very start with that penalty award... isn't the rule hand-to-ball = penalty, but ball-to-hand = no penalty?
Oh well, UEFA and the media got what they wanted, a Liverpool win.
81 Posted 02/06/2019 at 09:43:20
The RS good fortune this last season and for decades before is legendary.
Contempt is total, I said to my son, the Klogg officials may support Ajax, and could be a factor.
Ball to hand and Sissoko had his arm up before the pass. Ball to hand all day.
Now we must focus on us, and get the preseason going.
We need progress this season and to become a presence, and push for top 6 and win a cup.
The next few days I'm wearing the ear protectors and blanking out the RS.
82 Posted 02/06/2019 at 09:53:17
We pride our self on having the local fans. However, if Liverpool keep winning, all the kids are going to latch on to them.
As it has been said many a time, the club is rotten to the core. Something drastic needs to happen next season or we'll be battling for the bottom 6.
83 Posted 02/06/2019 at 09:56:21
84 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:03:50
At this stage, for me, if I can watch us play some decent and committed football, more along the lines of what we saw in the last quarter of the season, and make a decent fist of the cup competitions, that will be a good season.
I agree with those who think we're miles off the top 4, I'm not expecting us to get anywhere near that level for a few years, but with a couple of additions, we are capable of getting a lot closer to the top 6 pointswise. You might think that's still not achieving anything worth mentioning, and you may be right, but I see it as a realistic short-term aim.

We are stuck mid-table, seemingly a never-ending "project" and supposed progress not realising. Those are the facts and unless we make a proper, and expensive push for the top, there is no point whining about the RS.
Accepting the current situation as improvement is accepting defeat.
89 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:21:28
Football is all about winning.
90 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:35:27
91 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:39:35
I'm a changed man after last night. I'm 47 and have spent my whole life moping about as a Blue, hoping we can emulate their success one day, hoping they fall apart and suffer years of mediocrity. I've wasted hours of my life hating them.
But, it dawned on me last night that the joke surely is on us for giving their fortunes this level of scrutiny. We shine a blue light on the liver birds and sell Messi scarves while they win European trophies. We are so far off them, it's untrue, and have been for most of my lifetime. We simply must focus on our own fortunes from this point on as quite frankly I'm embarrassed that I've wasted so much time and energy on LIverpool FC.
I want success for Everton but from this point on I'm done with comparing and contrasting our fortunes with theirs. It's unhealthy and hasn't got us anywhere has it? They've always had phoney fans, they've always had favourable media exposure and luck on their side – that will not change – so let's focus on what we can change.
92 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:42:48
93 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:45:22
They were parading around the city with a trophy every 20 minutes and but for one season when we flattered to deceive, we didn't make a serious challenge for the title. A lame defeat in the League cup final was as close to a trophy as we got - To think went into that decade as champions.
The only time it has ever seemed like we were the majority is when the club has actually given us something to shout about by winning something. They've had so much more to shout about than us.
Today they will parade Europe's biggest prize around the City. Some hardy Evertonian's will shout them down and wind them up by giving them zero credit, but the majority will suffer in silent agony.
Hey, This is football, its about the here and now, all their European trophies menat nothing when we taunted them in 85 with chants of hand it over. I have to believe it will happen again.
They don't look like they are about to fall from grace anytime soon. Whatever it takes, WE have got to start getting our fucking act together.
Who do I have to kill to make that happen ?
94 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:45:33
95 Posted 02/06/2019 at 10:50:02
Let's face it, we are a mildly focused and committed club and always seem happy to amble along spouting about the great work we do in the city or hell-bent in giving ex-players jobs asap. Jeez, Jagielka and Baines are still here and not even out the door yet and already calls for them to be put back on the payroll.
I honestly thought with the three Ms running the show it would change the mindset at least a bit but it's still the same old Everton with Bill getting emotional over Davie Hickson etc... Very sad.
96 Posted 02/06/2019 at 11:08:24
97 Posted 02/06/2019 at 11:13:07
We must also not forget that just weeks prior to the fluke in Istanbul Anfield attendances had slipped to below the 40,000 mark. But that never to be repeated event put paid to our ever achieving parity again. Not just the fact that they won the Champions Cup but the very nature of the victory. Sky TV and the Premier League continued to pump money (and coverage) into the more successful clubs like Liverpool after that and their support increased exponentially, and particularly at a national and international level.
The only amazing thing about our local support over the same period is that it has stayed intact if measured at the turnstiles. But the dynamics of club support are such that the attraction of local younger age groups by Liverpool must inevitably have a negative effect on our own when looking ahead.
98 Posted 02/06/2019 at 11:18:32
I too had this realisation last night. Im not actually that bothered about their win last night as it wont change anything for us. It also wont change their horrible, phoney fans with their full kits, badges, flags and lack of actually visiting Anfield.
Ive wasted years of my life wanting them to lose and looking out for their result in the hope that them losing would somehow make us happier. It wont as it doesnt change the underlying fact that we are shit because of chronic mismanagement over a sustained period and not because of what they do.
Whilst I will always want them to lose as that is the essence of rivalry, Im no longer going to define a large amount of my happiness by what happens with them. I will define my happiness by what we do.
Im frankly embarrassed at some of our fans wearing half and half Everton/Spurs shirts or buying Messi scarves. We need to focus on ourselves.
The only thing that can change anything for us is our own club and those who run and manage it. We need to focus on them and hope that we are serious about being more than a mid-table also ran.
99 Posted 02/06/2019 at 12:08:23
Evertonians have almost nothing to cling on to. We are starved of finals or even getting a sniff of a trophy.
Let's not pin our dreams on a stadium that may or may not happen or even be fit for purpose.
10 years ago, we were 2 or 3 top players off the top 4. We didn't back the manager, and today we're probably 4 or 5 players off the top 6. Talk about stagnation.
100 Posted 02/06/2019 at 12:16:22
In a poor game, they were the better team in both boxes, where it counts.
What can we learn from them? Their success is based on ruthlessly ambitious management, particularly good recruitment at all levels, initial patience and the collective sense of everybody pulling together on and off pitch.
We can scoff, or learn. I want to shout 'hand it over' again and there's no reason why we can't do those four things necessary to succeed.
101 Posted 02/06/2019 at 12:22:19
Pochettino shouldn't have played Kane. He wasn't fit and he isn't all that great even when he is. The cockney Lukaku. But they just had to go with the local hero. Son and Moura up front would have given them more bite. Considering Moura scored a hattrick against Ajax he should never have been left on the bench.
I'll be surprised if Pochettino is still their manager next season. He's done all he can with Spurs and I'm sure he wants to buy a better forward than Kane but the club won't allow it. I think he'll move on.
102 Posted 02/06/2019 at 12:34:31
I've got old mates who are reds and fair minded, good blokes. For their sake, I've got no issue with Liverpool winning a trophy. Those lads have been frustrated like we've been frustrated (but not quite as frustrated as us!), because they've won little to nothing for years, and coming second doesn't compensate. They've had to play second fiddle to the elite clubs like Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea, despite the big resources spent. No amount of apparent bias towards them in the media can make up for that. If they hadn't won anything this year, it would have been a big mental problem for them.
Let's just focus on Everton, and leave others to enjoy their success when they have it and deal with their problems when they don't. If Everton really start walking the walk instead of just talking the talk, everything else won't matter.
103 Posted 02/06/2019 at 12:38:27
Paul Tran is right about learning from them and their ruthless recruitment. Whilst they've paid under £100 million in total for their front three, we've spent the same for players who are a level below like Walcott, Tosun, Schneiderlin, Klaassen. They've sold their players at the right time and used the money to buy sell, we've sold cheap and bought badly.
We need to focus on ourselves and what we do. This summer is an opportunity to solidify what we have, buy 2 or 3 good players (including someone upfront who will get 15 a season!) and push onwards. We aren't that many wins behind Arsenal and Man Utd. Spurs lost nearly as many league games as us this season and Chelsea may struggle once Hazard has gone and the transfer ban is in place. Next season could be a chance, let's hope those in charge of the club see it too.
104 Posted 02/06/2019 at 13:01:32
We live in hope every Summer that the next season will finally see a swing in fortune that gives us some credibility against the top teams but it's not to be.
Certainly money plays a big part and whilst the top teams get the pick of the crop, teams like Everton rely on the scraps, getting players, managers and coaches who are just below requirements and perform the same way.
Liverpool and Man City have proved what good management and investment can do and Everton have to think that further investment from abroad is necessary because despite Moshiri they are still not making progress in my opinion.
We live in hope!
105 Posted 02/06/2019 at 13:04:54
The clubs are far apart. Everton will always remain in their shadows sadly whether we accept it or not.
What I want from Everton is to have some plan in place to move the club forward every season. I just get the feeling the custodians of the club are happy to remain in the Premier League.
106 Posted 02/06/2019 at 13:19:31
But they w..., they w They didn't lose, so I can't avoid that and rationalise it away (it was a cack game; they're all flying back to Norway etc). Fortunately my Sunday paper has none of it on the front page of the main section nor the sports section (Idlib News).
Move on. Another set of signings, another season, another bag full of hopes.
God it's dark in this bunker. Still, only another month to go before I emerge into daylight. Keep passing down the scouse, love - no humble pie.
107 Posted 02/06/2019 at 13:24:57
Their success should be a further spur to our club to improve. It's extremely difficult though to make that final jump from nearly men to winners.
Man City are proof of what it takes: in short – lots of money spent wisely.
108 Posted 02/06/2019 at 13:51:49
You simply CANNOT say we 'will always be in their shadows', pardon my french, but we don't want to hear that fucking defeatist talk right now. You need to man up mate.
We have to draw inspiration from what has evolved at Man City over 10-15 years. Ok, not sure what has happened there, is 'morally' correct, but their only sin so far, is that their owners have thrown a whole heap of financial backing at the project, they have also, very astutely, brought in to the club, exceptional football and commercial people.
It wasn't long ago they were playing in the third tier of english football in a ground worse than Goodison.
That's the hope and expectation that keep's me going. Now is the time all supporter's need to stay strong, as unpleasant as the current situation is, we are EVERTON, that's what makes us different.
Keep the faith.
109 Posted 02/06/2019 at 14:38:21
But we will know it is just bought. Ask a long serving Citeh fan. Many I know just find it ridiculous as well as making them proud.
But COYB nontheless!
110 Posted 02/06/2019 at 14:49:04
Moyes was steady but average and lacking in funds to do anything worthwhile; Martinez took Swansea down; Koeman got it all wrong and then a washed up Allardyce (come on!).
We now have Silva with no pedigree at all (Hull City and a short spell of games at Watford). This is totally unacceptable for a club like Everton and it's loyal following.
If they don't start at the top they will always be average in the output on the field.
111 Posted 02/06/2019 at 14:58:10
This is so classy:
112 Posted 02/06/2019 at 15:00:03
Wonder what would happen if we painted the flame or Shankly gate Royal Blue.
God I Hate them.
113 Posted 02/06/2019 at 15:03:38
I take comfort in the fact that football is cyclical and that it's Man City's time in the sun. Remember when LFC were in the second division for years, imagine what it was like for their fans then.
The only comfort they could take was Evertonians were more magnanimous then. The bile that it spewed by their fans now, knows no bounds.
114 Posted 02/06/2019 at 15:28:17
115 Posted 02/06/2019 at 15:34:08
What, next, 39 on the Shankly Gates?
Their biggest triumph in 14 years and how do they celebrate it?
Shan't hold my breath waiting for the LFC hierarchy/Red Echo/any kopite to condemn the vandalism
116 Posted 02/06/2019 at 15:35:14
Our failings are well documented we don't need to cover every cut and bruise, every misfortune, we know them well enough. Stop feeling sorry for ourselves and look to the future.
Whilst I am not a fan of all that 'In (insert name) We Trust' nonsense. I do believe that Brands did not leave a winning set up just to come here and be happy with just keeping us up. So I am going to have a little faith in him.
As for Silva he is still somewhat of an enigma. I am still undecided on him but that is down to my lack of insight rather than his lack of ability. He had some major peaks and troughs last season but look at some results
Citteh- beaten both games, much better team, no argument
R.S. - pickfords brain melt gifted the first game, drew the home one. JUST my opinion but they were lucky both games
Chelski- took four points off them, matched them at their place. Played them off in the park in the second half at GP
Spuds- trounced us at GP when we were in the patch,were we could't tell our arses from our elbows. Didn't let ourselves down at theirs I felt they were lucky to get a point.
Manure/ The Arse. Identical results. lost at their place aided by some dodgy decisions. At the Old Lady they were lucky to escape with the score they did, especially The Arse.
IMO we did quite well against the top clubs last year. we imploded in the middle 3 months and blew any chance of challenging them. The bad run was awful and the football on display was dire but it did not define our season.
We added some quality players to our team last year and I have feeling Brands will be working hard on sorting the squad out for the coming season.
So as that wise(ish) man has always said, Posso Waves Blues

My only advice is to shut the doors, shake yer head in acknowledgement of a definite penalty, (unfuckingbelievable) and then concentrate on Everton, just like the little gobshites who have graffitied Prince Ruperts tower?
Theyve been giving them penalties all season said the Ref in the BT studios, yet only a few weeks ago that same ref, said it was ball to hand when Messi was screaming for a penalty at the Nou Camp?

They have defaced or trashed virtually every city in Europe at some point so why not carry on at home?
We could go and graffiti on the Shankly Gates but how do you fit in “murderers, wallpushers, 39 Italians, Ambulance attacking scum”?
I think Id run out of spray paint lol.

Who knows what may happen? Our future is ours to make.

On another point can anyone give me 1 contentious dodgey decision that has gone against them in the last 20 years?

Compare that and sure some might come up with the odd one where a big decision went our way over that time that decided the outcome.
We have never won a league title on goal difference, we have never won a cup final in extra time or penalties and unless we got a penalty in the 1906 final, cannot think of a penalty we have had given in a cup final.
The only one I can come up with was the disallowed Bolton goal, that after Southall was taken out by one of their players with no free kick given to Everton.
The Suarez one was another where he should not have even been on the pitch to have the goal ruled out, after taking Mirallas out in the first half, then the tackle on Distin in the same game.

1. Clive Thomas disallowing our 3rd goal 1977 FA Cup Semi
2. Alan Hansen - handball on goal line 1984 Milk Cup Final not given.
3. 2007 Derby at Goodison Park - the ‘Clattenburg Derby. Stevie G persuading the ref to send Tony Hibbert off when he was about to show him a yellow. Kuyts kung foo kick not given a red card. If you've never seen it, watch it: it is a two footed off the ground lunge which he actually runs and launches into. He wasnt sent off but he did score 2 pens in the game. Then last minute after hed given Liverpool a pen to put them 3-2 up, Lescott is wrestled to the ground in Liverpools box only for Clattenburg to wave play on.
4. Gary McAllister being allowed to move the ball ten yards forward to score winner in 94th minute at Goodison 2001
5. Don Hutchinson disallowed goal in last minute of Derby at Goodison in 200. Ranked the 7th worst referring decision of all time by the Bleacher Report.
6.Steven Gerrard being allowed to move the free kick 5 yards in from the touch line in the 89th minute resulting in the shite scoring to make it 3-3 at Goodison.
7. 1991. FA Cup Anfield - Pat Nevin chopped down in area for clearest pen you will see. Ref waves play on.
