It clearly does. Not as often as it used to be but to say we don't win at Anfield is one of the absurdest comments you've made.

It has never happened under David Moyes' reign, ie for years. It doesn't happen.

It has happened, but certainly not this millenia.

Liverpool are a better team than us, that is a fact by the way they consistently finish above us in the league and win trophys on a more regular basis than us.

We can finish above them, but I very much doubt we will. They are a better team than us.

Are you Colin Murray in disguise?

Nearly all Liverpools first team is better than ours.
The exception is Baines who would get in their team and maybe Fellaini.
Be realistic, they are only 2 or 3 players from a title challenge.
We are 9 or 10 first team players away.

lolol

Now we're getting somewhere. It always helps to be a bit more specific.

That said, just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it won't. You really are so pessimistic these days.

About Everton, yes I am.

There's very few things to be optimistic about Everton at present unfortunately.

Makes you wonder. Imagine if Straq, Drenthe joined in July and Pienaar never left. Fellaini and co hitting form earlier we could easily be 7-10 points better off. People might say "yer but all clubs can say what if etc". However in our case our what if's are so bloody solveable.

1. Dont fuck up in transfer market till september
2. Play better teams in friendlies
3. Make the players believe they can achieve the highest

But of course, we've proved many times that we can be a competitive teams, despite we're not the biggest one. I feel like we're slowly comin back to the winning formula after period of underachieving. We really have to be meticulous about the smallest things, otherwise the big-money clubs will easily dominate :)

You are a fucking Helmet, so you're saying the likes of Jags,Heitinga,Fellaini,Rodwell,Howard,Pienaar,Distin,Drenthe aren't good enough?

I think you should go lock yourself in a room, give your head a wobble and come back when you work out how much of an idiot you are.

He said away from a title challenge and of course most of those aren't. Jags in top form could play for a title challenging team, Felli, baines and Pienaar too but that's only 4 players so missing 7 from the starting line up. Seen as you need some very good players in reserve to win titles saying we 9 or 10 away seems fair.
