Hot on the heels of that debacle last night. All we need

Well at least Silva won't be in charge as the Board meet this afternoon to decide on his replacement. We should hear the outcome within hours.

Another chance for the whole nation to laugh at us.

The BBC follows Liverpool without fail every year in the FA Cup. No doubt Pickford will have his usual Anfield game for the television masses.

"The kick-off has been delayed by one minute to encourage fans to ‘take a minute' to think about looking after their mental health as part of the FA's Heads Up campaign."

What the Fuck?

It's like saying: "Take this time to think about how fucking mental you are watching this shit and expecting a different outcome."

Michael, that's unbelievable, is someone seriously taking the piss? I bet they got paid a lot of money (charity money too) to come up with that crap.

Oh, I dunno Michael. It's a big marketing opp for the club.

I fancy if this debacle carries on much longer, there will be Blues in record numbers sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Yep I will consider very carefully the affect EFC is having on my mental health

I've already come up with a week-long marketing plan, Michael (with apologies to those of a sensitive nature. I genuinely, but genuinely do take mental health issues seriously):

Manic Monday
Tourettes Tuesday
Well-being Wednesday
Therapy Thursday
Frantic Friday
Self-harm Saturday (on the eve of the game, once again deluding ourselves that 'THIS' is the game we finally win at Anfield)
Suicidal Sunday (by the way we'll play and how we'll feel long before the final whistle)

Can you guess I'm just desperately waiting to see the flashing 'Breaking News' story out of Finch Farm.

A minute to stop and wonder why we bother. I guess we are all addicted, but football is a bloody curse.

This club is cursed.

Sunday 5th January. Same date we played the RS the other year in the cup (Friday 5th January) when we lost 2-1. The BBC looking at lucky omens for their darling team?

Best of luck Rob. I guess you'll be there. The rest of us will be watching from behind the sofa - fearing/expecting a repeat of last night (or worse).

Yet another opportunity for the rs infested BBC to bang the drum AND do us down for the prime time edification of all the stay home (or in the pub) bantz merchants

Everton's rep will be Kilbane who, as Dan Walker will point out on the touchline, "has experience of being on the winning side in a derby way back in December 2004"

"Yeh well ye've just gotta go out there and give 'undred percent. That Liverpool back four is there to be got at, and Everton need to stay focused and compact."
"Wise words Kevin. Any prediction?"
"1-1 take em back to Goodison"
"Thanks Kevin, now on to the pundits we really care about... Michael. You're a derby veteran, your thoughts"
"Well if Everton score early doors, Liverpool will need to fight back to win it"
"Totally agree, thanks Michael"

What absolute fecking drivel. Wish I could switch my brain off like Bender from Futurama

Maybe because I'm of a certain age that can remember derby victories, but I think we'll be in Round 4. That minute's silence should be for me really!

Already looking forward to it, COYB!!!

I thought if our defence the other day was more adapted to fast attacking opponents and one or two of our big chances went in, it woulda looked lotta different. Of course the reds had a couple of big chances that didn't go in, but put my first point in consideration. Half the team was Liverpool B team, coulda gone away with something, anyways, good luck to whoever the next manager to sort it out from back to front.

FFS I was sure this was going to be on BT Sport so I added that package to my Sky. I think I'll cancel it till next season.

I am actually looking forward to Big Dunc being in charge for that game. It will be a real derby then, anything could happen.
