Yeah,i can't get into this world of his. In the end there i guess he admits being 'superficially a bit silly' trying to bend the reality.

I'm thinking he actually is the dog in the profile and has communicated this theory with barks but part of it has been lost in the translation.

Easy there. My dog knocks on the back door when he wants to come in. That automatically puts him at a higher functioning plain

What else can they do? Admit we're good?

Actually, yes. If they had even a tiny fraction of the ''class and dignity'' they say they have, then that is exactly what they would do.
Wallowing in total denial, as they do, just makes them look very stupid indeed.

In the 80s, for a short period of time, Everton had a great side. I had no problem saying as much. Why pretend otherwise and look like a prize tit who knows nothing about football?
When Ferguson got United's act together I had no problem admitting they has assembled a great side. Even those vile, reputation-laundering cheats from Abu Dhabi have put together a great side. I have no problem saying the team is a very, very good one.

So yes, if you are an Everton fan rather than a delusional Bitter, just admit Liverpool are good and deserve their success, then get on with your own day. Your mental health and quality of life will benefit greatly, and you will also look like you do have a little class and dignity afterall. Simples!

So, trying to replicate what he has done, let's use UEFA's current coefficient rankings (which aren't terribly great, but whatevah)
https://www.uefa.com/memberassociations/uefarankings/club/#/yr/2019

and this years final English league tables;

Liverpool en route to winning the final, played

PSG (W, L)
Napoli (L,W)
Red Star (L,W)

Bayern (D,W)
Porto (W,W)
Barca (L,W)
Spurs (W)

So, Liverpool, beat all those teams at least once... now, how do they stack up? Lets sub the coefficient for the PL/C table

Everton
Burnley
Forest Green

Egad, not looking so good for Liverpool now, losing to Forest green like that. Of course, seeding and the five year nature of the UEFA coefficients make a mockery of this (for example, in 2019 UEFA rank red Star 46th - Barnsley) but still... Of course, when it comes to the second round, things change a bit;

Chelsea
Liverpool
Brighton

I reckon if that was an FA cup run you would be appalled. But how did the best team in Europe (TM) make out? Well, Many City played

Lyon (L,D)
Shakhtar (W,W)
1899 Hoff (W,W)

Schalke (W,W)
Spurs (L,W)

Which equates to the following sides.

Middlesborough (note: they didn't actually beat Lyon/Boro)
Southampton
Wrexham

West Brom
Brighton (Out)

Tell you what, piece of piss this CL stuff...

Utterly insane clown logic from him as you can hardly scale down the CL to such a level of teams as even the so-called weaker teams in the competition are no pushovers, look at how much they struggled in Europe and that was only the EL.

One interesting point, those theoretical teams are still probably a tougher run of games than city had in the domestic cups last season.  ;D

I’ve actually worked out who Everton beat to win the FA Cup in 1995..... in terms of Simpson’s characters.

Derby County (H)
Bristol City (A)
Norwich City (H)
Newcastle United (H)
Spurs (N)
Manchester United (N)

Derby County = Booberella



Bristol City = this lawyer guy



Norwich City = one of the rabbits from the land of chocolate



Newcastle United = Patty



Spurs = Squeaky voiced teen



Manchester United = Jubjub



Whereas the equivalent of us winning the CL includes Comicbook Guy, Apu and Moe in the group, George Bush Snr in the first knock out game, Ned Flanders in the quarters, Hank Scorpio in the semis and Troy McClure in the final.

It's all part of the legend.

All part of the myth.  :)

They didn't progress because they rested on their laurels and never consolidated on what they had built. It's also funny how they just assume that had they been able to enter the competition they would have won it. That's sheer arrogance. I can't stomach those revisionists that wilfully forget that the hooligan issue was countrywide back then and Everton were as active, if not moreso if you read the books, as anyone else. The ban was triggered by Heysel, which was the horrific final straw that broke the camels back, but a ban was inevitable anyway. Everyone hated the English and their 'English disease' of rampant hooliganism which went everywhere the English went. Our own government hated football fans in general and was itching to cage us and ban us all. Hooliganism was never the fault of the clubs. It's not their fault that hooligans attached themselves to virtually every club in the country and the national side. I believe only the fans should have been banned and, yes, I mean all, because hooliganism was pervasive back then and everyone needed a reality check. The clubs should have still been able to compete though, in my opinion. I'll give Everton that, but that was not a decision made by LFC.

It's amazing how Everton see themselves as the real victims of the hooligan epidemic and its nadir at Heysel. Our club suffered too and English football did as a whole. English football ultimately suffered because of the large minority from every club that was basically killing the game. The Everton minority are as guilty as anyone. Their 'top boys' will brag about that to anyone who will listen. Some even write books that revel in it all and recount their escapades in gory detail.

Of course, Nobby, you know all this, so this post is just for the Blue lurkers out there who either don't know the truth or know it but continue to deny it.  :wave

The demise of Everton was down to Everton. Every other club has recovered from the ban and moved on ... except Everton. The reason for this is in-house. The reason they are still in the doldrums is because their issues are still in-house but they refuse to see it and would rather look externally and blame others instead. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and Man United have built then destroyed a dynasty since those days. Liverpool have been European Champions twice since then. Leicester have won the league since then, as have the likes of Blackburn and Leeds. Everton's demise was, and still is an inside job.

That's how shit they were last year even when they were lucky.

Honestly, that cabinet doesn't look like it could hold a European Cup - although it would be typically Everton to make a cabinet that could only hold one. ;D

Crazy thing is that they say they measured the European Cup in 1977 when we won it, in anticipation of winning their own. But they'd not won a title in 7 years by then - and it would be another 7 years before they did. :lmao

Perhaps Mainz were told 'a team from the city of Liverpool' wanted to play them in a friendly and they automatically assumed it was the european champions wanting to visit them again.

Afterall, there aren't any other teams on Merseyside are there? Not that anyone in Europe will have heard of anyway.
