Everton v Liverpool Football Betting Tips 04-10-2015
Liverpool were expected to win and win easily against FC Sion in Thursday nights Europa league encounter but instead they laboured to a 1-1 draw and the team was treated once again to a chorus of boos at the final whistle.
This “most understanding” Liverpool fan base, these “educated” Liverpool supporters. The Twitter idiots that harangue the accounts of John Henry and Linda Pizzuti demanding that Brendan Rodgers be sacked. The forum scum that hope we get beaten by Everton so that the manager gets the sack.
Is this what it has come to? Have Liverpool supporters really sunk so low?
Rodgers was between a rock and a hard place.
Play the kids against a team sixth in the Swiss League, hope that they take their chances and get slaughtered if they fail to win.
Or play a full strength side and get slaughtered for taking the eye off the Merseyside derby on Sunday.
Either way the manager couldn't make the right decision in the one eyed delusion that is the modern Liverpool supporter.
The fact of the matter is that the team that was put out to play FC Sion was more than good enough but woeful finishing let the team down. And as for the defence being “shit”? How can you coach for a player passing straight to the other team out of defence? Nathaniel Clyne has been one of the Reds better performers this season but that mistake caught everyone cold.
Now the Merseyside Derby.
Liverpool have a strong squad to choose from and with Sturridge beginning to fire on all cylinders ably supported by Danny Ings there are goals yet to come from this Liverpool team.
Sakho returns to defence but captain Jordan Henderson is sidelined with a foot injury and Benetke also misses out due to a hamstring injury.
Everton have managed just one victory over Liverpool in 17 meetings and in the fiery heat of battle there have been 20 red cards.
I'm going for a 1-1 draw.
