I think like a lot of reds they would prefer a strong competitive EFC. It makes things more exciting and interesting and counter-weighs the Manchester and London clubs better.
Yeah they enjoy having a laugh at how poor or badly run we are but that gets old after a while and has not really been any fun for them quite some time (I'm not talking about the trolls - they'll never get enough).
I'm having this experience with Barça at the moment. Yeah I've had a laugh at them so far this season - but the Liga is boring at the mo. Part of me wouldn't mind their rediscovering what they are about, bringing youths players through and building another top class team.
Once they were playing Borussia Dortmund (I think) in the European Cup and we were playing Peterborough United in the League Cup (again I think, memory is sketchy). This must've been late 90s. Mobiles weren't what they are now.
An old boy in the Main Stand at Liverpool had a transistor radio and someone kept shouting to ask him the Everton score. When another fan shouted 'no-one ####ing cares lad', the person asking for the score stood up and said "I ####ing do." That was Carra
There was one season around this time, maybe late 90s (?), where we were flirting around the bottom of the division. We were never going down, but we needed the points to make sure with a good few weeks to spare. We won a home game, whilst Liverpool were at West Ham away. Coming down the tunnel, Carra asked my dad 'how did we get on Norm?', then proceeded jumping over my dad and other teammates, knowing Everton were safe.
He may be a red now, but he's also still a blue.
Including his use of ‘we’. What do others think regarding BK etc?
