Not to be pedantic, but it was Alan Parry who cried "Penalty!" not Martn Tyler.

Because I started supporting us in the 90s, and because of our 5-year unbeaten run against them, I've never really feared Liverpool as much as some.

No matter how much better they were than us during that period, we always gave them a game and rarely lost. In fact, they didn't win at Goodison from 1990 until 2001!

Even today, as much as I hate them and know they're far superior to us, I still go into derby day thinking about those games in the 90s and convincing myself we can get something.

Despite our bad run, we've drawn 10 of the last 12 at Goodison and won 1 and drawn at least 3 or 4 at Anfield in that time. Not good, obviously, but not as bad as some would seem to think. Definitely not good enough, before I'm accused of "knives to gunfights", but hopefully Frank can improve on that.

No-one is going to accuse you/ Lee. For generations, derbies have never been kind on us so we remember the moments for what they are and where.

The Andy King goal liberated a tortured generation.

The Graeme Sharp goal told us we were rising and about to do something.

The Kanchelskis brace gave us hope that we might be back. Short-lived.

Campbell, Carsley, Johnson and Cahill gave us moments of joy.

Carlo's team gave us a victory at Mordor. Sadly not in front of the faithful masses.

Our day is coming. And I don't mean in one match. I watched us get beat 3-1 at Anfield the season we last won the league.

And now we have Super Hanna Bennison who, last night, put the ball in the RS's net.

I will take a repeat of last night's result when the men play there later this season. Don't care we won, they lost.
