Liverpool 0 – 0 Everton
Typical derby game. LFC were the better team, and Bellamy had an easy chance to score. But, so did Johnson, so I can’t really say it was an unfair result, despite the possession and attempts.
Rafa Benitez summed it up when he said that whenever the small teams come to Anfield, they always defend very deep and make it hard. The fact that it was a derby only made it more so! “One team wanted to win, and one team didn’t want to lose.” (He’s right, but I won’t criticise Everton for it, because we’ve done it a lot in the past, and will Liverpool play the same against Barcelona in a few weeks??)
The Everton fans were actually in good voice today; shame that 90% of their singing was about Steven Gerrard. Is that the best you can do? Seriously? Zzzzzz.
I guess Everton are very happy with the result, but if I ever cheer a draw with them take me outside and shoot me.
