Was going to give my opinion on the match yesterday but couldn't in the match thread due to there being a problem with this website yesterday afternoon. So I'll stick it on here now.
I honestly thought you'd give us a tougher game than that, I really did. But as most of you were saying the team selection probably didn't help with Moyes having one eye on the cup. Maybe with being 10 years at the club he's thinking that he needs something to show for it, and the FA Cup is the only chance of doing that this season. I wouldn't have liked his post match comments if I was an Evertonian but I guess he's being a realist. Who else would rather have 3pts than 2? I certainly would, although losing a derby isn't ideal. But his comments did remind me of some of the shite that Hodgson use to come out with.
Liverpool seemed to want it more and went at Everton from the first whistle. We closed down and harried the Everton players. I have to say though, it cerrtainly wasn't the Everton I watched against Tottenham on Saturday evening but again that's probably a lot down to the six changes made. We weren't the Liverpool that played at Sunderland the Saturday before either. I just hope we can put that performance in every week and not just for our biggest rivals.
Time's a healer. And no doubt if Moyes gamble comes off and you're through to the semi's of the FA Cup, the derby game will be a distant memory. Good luck lads, here's to playing you a third time.....at Wembley for the final...and for us to give you a tin-hatting in terms of results!
