Everton 0-2 Liverpool – Premier League – October 1st 2011

Everton youngster Jack Rodwell became the (record) 20th player to be sent off in a Premier League Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Saturday, although the decision by referee Martin Atkinson was a stinker. Rodwell’s challenge was worth nothing more than a foul, but the red card left the Toffees with an uphill battle.

Dirk Kuyt did still miss a penalty but a  strike by Andy Carroll (who still doesn’t look like a £35million player), along with Luis Suarez, gave the red half of Liverpool “bragging rights”, whatever they are.


Let’s hope that this tomfoolery didn’t escalate into blind mindless violence

    I don’t understand referring to a very nice save from the keeper as the player “missing” his PK. That would infer that he shot wide of the net, and thus, “missing” his target. Kuyt was just denied by the hideously garbed Tim Howard. Not singling you out Alan, as it’s widely used within football. Just don’t understand the misnomer.

    @makoto hasebe – I could argue the obvious one of the most respected managers with financial a great record (success to outlay), I could say that if Liverpool picked a manager for his ability not repuatation or sentimentality one of the worlds allegedly great teams would not be scratching at the top table still whinging about their glory years. But quite honestly I don’t want to bait the pool fans right now because every one I have spoken to has said the same thing “we wanted to beat you clean.” we win clean great, we lose clean I can live with it but I am starting become less and less enamoured with the game the more disappointing specticles I have to watch. Dive, whinge at the ref go for the red/yellow/pen rince repeat because if you aren’t man U, man city , liverpool, chelski or arsenal you are playing against the house and at the end of the season the house always wins.

    please excuse the crap grammar and spelling I just reread and it is poor.

  6. Tinez says:

    Newcastle United fans would like to thank Liverpool once again for buying Andy Carroll for 10 vans of money.

    @ Makoto Hasebe: I imagine you as an angry Japanese cartoon figure. It’s pretty funny.
