    No, it's worse than that.  They really do have expectation and ambition.  They have been spending lots of money!  They are really trying!

    Even after all that money they didn’t expect to end up top 6. Just being best of the rest. They’re pathetic.

    Can someone explain to me how the city is divided between Everton and LFC?
    I know it's been called the "friendly derby" but is it really mixed or do Everton fans live in a certain part of the city.

    For instance in Stockholm we have 3 big teams, Hammarby, AIK and Djurgården.

    Hammarby is traditionally a working class team and it's supported by people living in the southern part of Stockholm.

    AIK is based in a municipality within Stockholm called Solna and is also working class. Their fans are mainly from the North-West part of Stockholm.

    Djurgården is the royal team, named after royal hunting grounds, obviously their fans are middle class and above and are based in the central and northern parts of Stockholm.

    You’ll find them in Sports Direct or Wetherspoons.

    Seriously, it really is mixed. Even families can have red and blues under the same roof.

    Yeah there's no actual dividing lines or areas of reds and blues or anything like that. I know plenty of siblings who support different teams.

    Evertonians will tell you, though, that the majority of Scousers are Blues. It's utter bullshit. There's well more Reds.

    What is interesting, though, is that most of the Blues I know do seem to "go the game" and have season tickets. So either some of them are lying and there's a fanbase-wide conspiracy to make out like they all attend the games and are superfans, or Goodison is actually a magical portal that appears to only have a capacity of 40,000, but actually holds many, many more.

    Imagine actually having a magical portal, and it opens up in Goodison Park, filled with hate-twisted Orcs wearing Lonsdale trainers.

    This (hi Derek).  I know we've milked the fixture for points over the years but I'm invariably pretty nervous before and during the game, and at my age the ticker can do without that.  Besides, as with others on here the sheer intensity of their bitterness gets on my wick.

    Incidentally, if they did go down, I'm not convinced they'd bounce straight back up again either.

    Is this to me?  Or is there someone called Derek here.

    Do you know me from one of my former haunts?   

    ... Hi.


    / For anyone  curious, my name isn't Derek but, for reasons even I'm not sure of, Derek Asamoah is my favourite footballer and I've been called/used Derek Asamoah online as an alias in the past.

    So... Is it really the friendly Derby?

    Surely it's hard to hate them when they're all family or friends?

    Yep, send them down. Would love it. There's too much sentimental crap about. Oh we'd miss the Derby. Yeah and? Let them scrap it out against the likes of Stoke, Preston and Sheffield Wednesday and see if they can come up.

    It was aimed at Whaddapie, an old pal of mine from the forum who doesn't post enough these days and whose Christian name is Derek, but hello to you too.  :)   

    I'm not sure whether or not we've crossed paths before, but I suspect it's unlikely as I've only ever been on Koptalk and then here.

    I'll amend my will accordingly next week.  :)

    Recently had a bit of a scare with it actually as the sound began to fade in and out (small wonder as the old thing's in its 44th year now).  All seems to be well again though.

    It was, but that's changed. I'm born/bred in Yorkshire but my Dad was from Bootle. For a short time I lived in Litherland when I was a nipper which was terrifying, my "Leeds" accent went down a storm!

    As a kid the family used to share tickets so we'd all go to the derby together. My Dad's cousins (not sure what this is to me, I'm sure the Fins have a term!) would always sort us out with tickets as close to them as possible and vice versa but as the years moved on and you had seats and shit it got more difficult.

    More to the point the atmosphere changed. I noticed first at goodison in the mid-90's but then I'm a Red. I think we got just as bad too around the same time. It coincided with the Everton-qualifying-but-heysel thing but I don't think that was it, I think it was just changing times.

    I haven't been to Goodison this century and, from what I've seen Everton fans are not tolerated even at the Anny Road end anymore.

    We did have the 'friendly derby' in the crowd but not no more

    In a nutshell....YES....I would love to see the Bitter blueshite relegated,I'd also like to see Tranmere get promoted so they (Everton) can actually play a Derby match they might actually win,besides,it would be funny as fuck :)
