Sporting weekends

Everton 0 - 2 liverpool

Blackheath 48 - 12 Waterloo

Ugh, what a crappy weekend of sport. Everton got lost the derby and Waterloo got another beating down in Blackheath.

The main problem with Everton on Saturday was that their usually hard-to-play-against 4-4-1-1 was shackled all day and kept as a 4-5-0-1. It made all the difference as Cahill just could not get himself into the game. We kept fairly close to them but created nothing with Yakubu up front on his own. Moyes tried to push Fellaini further forward and we looked more dangerous but left acres of space for them to dominate the midfield.

There wasn't that much in the game but you can't really argue with the result. They grabbed a goal and then we went to pieces for 5 minutes...after that there was no way back. It was a surprisingly low key affair with scarecely a murmur from either bunch of fans. Odd.

Hope we can salvage something from our season on Thursday. I do think it comes down to that.

Waterloo apparently played well but came away with absolutely nothing from London. That makes it 4 losses out of 4 and not even a losing bonus point to show for it. Bottom of the pile in a division where potentially 4 teams goes down. Tricky times.

At least Lancashire staved off relegation this comes to something when that is the highlight of your sporting weekend.
