Second worst game of the season for me, right behind the Goodison derby.
I hate the week long build up to derbies, think it's handled poorly by us, and is one of the reasons why we flake so badly twice every season.
Would prefer the low key 1/2 day preview we give to every other league game, rather than every player (esp. Jags and Baines) being wheeled out with videos explaining how important the derby is to them, and why this derby is our time to win.
He doesn't have a great record against Liverpool, but I'm hopeful that understanding the futility of romance and hype is one area that Allardyce is strong in.
