Oh I've never felt more like singing the blues

Until last week any glee in them across the park meeting defeat would have been open to accusations of petty jealousy however after that pendejo’s petty sniping it seems to have a more tangible, noble edge to it. Karma Mr Benitez! Payback’s a bitch.

Knowing Scouse footy fans as I do I’m pretty sure Evertonians are going to have those ‘small club’ jibes rubbed in their faces for a while to come…even if their new owners have christened them a franchise called Liverpool Reds (Red Devils if new phantom signing Mascherano is to be believed). Everton, having the temerity to take 4 points off our more illustrious neighbours, were branded a small club and so the title Beneathus is no longer anything to do with league positions.

So as news of the RojoMierda's result filtered through we trooped out of Goodison singing the blues (as in “Oh I’ve never felt more like singing the blues. When Everton win and Liverpool lose”)…our lads had done their usual trick of somehow contriving to make an easy victory nail-bitingly difficult. We’d bossed the first half with AJ opening the scoring and should have been 3 goals to the good. Brad Friedel had kept them in the game. The second half saw us revert to type and sit further and further back although ultimately, despite pressure a-plenty, we were good value for our win. The back four of Neville, Yobo, Stubbs and Lescott had soaked up everything they threw at us. The main grumble was how leggy we looked. There seemed to be a lot of tired legs out there. Blackburn are a dirty, physical side but for once we lived with them and gave as good as we got. Well done blues. Lescott was our man of the match again but Arteta ran him close. He is a superb, superb footballer…I desperately hope all this transfer talk is unfounded. I’ll understand if he does go and I’ll always look out for him, he should be playing for Spain…it’s not his fault that the media don’t focus on ‘small clubs’ like Everton…indeed the BBC et al have been chuckling away since the pendejo’s whinging not realising that he is just cementing the top four cartel they are always decrying.

Honourable mentions go to AJ, who ran himself into the ground as usual, Stubbs, who seems to have his swansong set to repeat and Fernandes, who came into the team and looked fairly lively and skilful.

BBC Match Report

The game was also notable for a lad we may well have met whilst travelling in Malaysia turning up at half time. He was brought out onto the pitch at half time and just missed out on a £10,000 prize from Barclays. We are assuming there aren’t too many other Everton fans in Portsmouth called Sau Lam! Unlucky mate.
