Yes it is a completely classless banner, Some Liverpool fans are morons, who knew? The banner was a response to some equally classless banners and chants from Everton fans not that it justifies it but I mention in order to give some context rather than cheap point scoring.

there's a fan forum that isn't? RAWK, RedCafe, Bluemoon, Shed End etc. ALL full of gobshites. I occassionally look in them for a laugh but wouldn't dream of contributing.

Grand Old Team, an Everton fan forum, is a tightly-run anti-dickhead website (you can't even say fuck, never mind cunt) which bans gobshites freely whilst trying to maintain good humour. It's won a few awards and is head and shoulders above the hate-filled, deluded pages of RAWK. That said, I think at least one of its mods isn't fit for purpose.

A tightly-run vetted and moderated site would be the only way to go with these things I think. You can't even read the threads there without signing up so can't check it out (I doubt they allow opposition fans but I could be wrong) but other Everton sites I perused are no different from the norm (but with added bitterness, obviously). Open sites attract all kinds of knuckle-dragging morons, arrogant twats and delusional dick heads. Just look at BCB! :)

I find the most the most hate-filled forum is actually Shed End. They seem to hate Livepool in particular to a passionate level* which is strange given that have plenty of London neighbours you'd think they'd hate more. Sadly Man City's fans at Blue Moon seem to have taken over from Red Cafe's lot as the most arrogant. A pity as I generally like City fans (some are my best friends) not that you can judge the average fan based on these sites though.

*Their thread on the 2005 Champions League final is an absolute classic and used to be frequently linked to on RAWK for comic relief - the frothing-at-the-mouth level of anger during the second half is hilarious. Even on Red Cafe there was a begrudging "well done 'pool", "fair play" etc. nothing of the sort of Shed End at all.

No can't be.

They closed the stadium because the intruder was potentially dangerous.

From an article titled "Premier leaguer: best team so far" and the lack of Liverpool players.

Firmino should be in. He's got one assist already and we aren't even halfway through November

Terrific performance from Liverpool. They were utterly outstanding in the 1st half. Firmino seems to have found his touch and defensively they seemed a lot more solid than I've seen them for a long time. Have to hand it to Klopp, he is in the process of transforming them.

I'm not a Liverpool fan, but that first half-hour featured some of the most scintillating football I've seen in a long time. Klopp deserves a lot of credit for transforming this team. They attacked Man City's shortcomings with absolute precision, and showed a confidence not really witnessed under Rodgers.

They showed plenty of that in the 2013-2014 season under Rodgers to be fair.

They did, but they also had one of the very best players in the world in the side then.

I thought Can was absolutely fantastic too - brilliant performance.

Indeed, Can was amazing. His connection with Coutinho helped tear Man City apart.

Yeah obviously, but I'm always surprised by how reactive people are when it comes to football - they have such short memories and base wholesale opinions on the most recent game. That's not directed at MM btw, that's just a general observation.
