The lead pic is Digne who has 'I never walk alone' tattoed on his chest (what a dick). There follows three tweets from RS taking the piss, including about the fact that he was pictured with, er, red shoes.
Then, Harry Kane, as a kid in an Arsenal top, with a crowing tweet from an Arse supporter.
Next, Kevin De Bruyne, an RS-supporter as a kid apparently (so fucking what).Then that tedious old one about Gerrard with that pic of him in an Everton top before he started to accrue 9000 lines on his face. This includes a tweet from a RS knohhead saying 'Best player to wear an Everton shirt'.
Then another dig at Spurs about Aurier being an Arsenal fan.
Finally, Ashley Williams as a kid in an RS kit with John Barnes. If only he was still wearing that kit.
So six players, four Liverpool biased and two Arsenal. Everton and Spurs being openly ridiculed. It's a low-quality, poorly thought out article. It's not funny or clever, it's just poor lazy writing and typical biased shite from the BBC.
Anyway, anger officially vented, I can now get on with my day.

"Liverpool unluckiest Premier League team & Manchester United luckiest, says study"
If Huddersfield or Palace had come out top in that 'study' would they have even mentioned it?

I was hoping that the survey (did they watch every second of every game?) would show an even bigger shift in number just to give the victims even more to moan about.
It would have been priceless

So much so, that they were taken to court in a high profile case which, in my view, has further tarnished their reputation.

The BBC I suspect all about global hits on their site.
I think it really irritating to see once prized objectivity compromised for such reasons.
The worst for me though, as a republican, is the fawning to the Windsors.
Don't get me started on that!

Embarrassing. Ive known 7-year-olds who could write a more mature piece about a news feature.
I just dont get this over-sentimentalised attitude of many Evertonians. I believe it holds the club back.
The club is overly sentimental even at board level. It doesnt serve the club at all.
Why is anyone bothered about anything other than what EFC are doing? Who cares if some child in Belgium or France once supported LFC. Its ridiculous.
These are professionals and they remove all sentiment from themselves and perform to the best of their abilities.
I believe EFC get the following equation mixed up.
A very good player with an emotional attachment can often become a great player, so inspired by his passion. Steven Gerrard is a classic example of this. As are players like Tony Adams etc.
An average player with an emotional attachment to the club will probably always remain an average player.
A very good player with no emotional attachment to the club is still a very good player and will be better than the average player with the emotional attachment.
But for some reason EFC doesnt take to a Lukaku, or a Stones etc because ‘they dont love the club. Who cares, if they are class then we need to recruit and support them.
Otherwise you end up with Tony Hibbert playing right back for 10 years.

When and if we win something, they may condescend to give us some credit.
17 Posted 07/08/2018 at 12:55:21
Danger the game will end up being followed by souless analysts. Yawn.

I dont know about the rest of you but when I type in newsnow football, the rs are the first team to appear. I think this is all part of the Deep State/Dark Web/ rs wankers Alliance which controls all our algorithms and the iCloud. Bastards!
20 Posted 07/08/2018 at 13:00:35
Most football fans believe the media is anti their club. You only have to visit forums of other clubs to see it.

The one surprising thing about the Beeb's current obsession is that a number of blues do work in a high level within the sports department, including McNulty. This probably has something to do with our success during that time period.
24 Posted 07/08/2018 at 13:46:58
The BBC news feature I'm referring to is, to me, yet another example of RS bias on the BBC. More importantly, I see it as offensive and derogatory towards Everton and, less so, Tottenham. In my opinion, it was worth highlighting. Marcus 7 points to another example that has appeared today. What's your problem with that exactly?
You call it embarrassing. I think it's your comment that's embarrassing, particularly in that you seem to have entirely missed the point. I don't give a flying shit who supported who as a kid. The point is that the BBC have used this angle as another opportunity to ridicule Everton and promote their pro-RS agenda. What's wrong with me drawing attention to that? Are there really only six examples of this in the whole of the football world? Why are four of them pro-RS? Why is the main pic of Digne? It is a clear dig at Everton. What about that long list of RS players who actually supported Everton as kids? Like I say, I don't give a shit about any of that but I do give a shit about the BBC article selecting players for the article to fulfil its ongoing pro-RS agenda. These things do have an effect.
As Dermot 18 says, football is all about sentiment and emotion. I won't apologise for getting angry or frustrated at the pro-RS anti-Everton shite all over the BBC. Did you read my closing line?
Ste 21, to adapt a line from the great Joseph Heller, I may be paranoid but that doesn't mean they're not out to get us. Plus, reading a featured article on the BBC football site with an Everton player as the lead picture is hardly 'trawling the internet' is it?
25 Posted 07/08/2018 at 13:48:27
26 Posted 07/08/2018 at 16:55:53
Respectfully, I think you are being over sensitive and as another poster puts it, paranoid.
You seem to think that the BBC have an anti-Everton agenda? You may point to examples of this being the car but it begs the question, ‘why?
Isnt McNulty their chief football writer and also an Evertonian?
I know he had a falling out with the club but Ive always found his writing about us to be balanced and fair. In fact he always writes passionately about things that have an Everton connection, even if the story isnt about Everton itself.
27 Posted 07/08/2018 at 17:30:34
It's what remains that matters as Everton will once again be founders of a brand new League & we can all enjoy getting the game we all loved growing up back...at long last,an equal playing field for all the clubs involved would be very interesting !.
28 Posted 07/08/2018 at 17:51:34
As I said, fine by me but as long as it is made clear that they are not allowed back into their respective domestic leagues when they become bored.
James, don't let the bastards grind you down.
29 Posted 07/08/2018 at 18:04:53
The 70s saw regular tv highlights for the first time and guess who was winning everything !!
It all comes from that, media darlings and the choice of every lazy, couldn't be arsed to support my local team, fan.
In closing aside from my red scouse compatriots to whom I have a sliver of brotherly respect, the rest of the shit chose the easy option, probably bankrupted their local team and jumped on the gravy train.
30 Posted 07/08/2018 at 18:05:56
I would also go as far as saying they would no longer be allowed to enter the FA Cup or league cup, though as they wouldn't be part of the FA any longer, they probably wouldn't be invited anyway.
31 Posted 07/08/2018 at 18:40:22
My guess a breakaway Euro League will happen around the next World Cup in Qatar,with all the disruption it will cause around Europe the big boys will then seize their chance and enjoy wallowing in their own greed.
Meanwhile Blues...we get our game back.

The falling-out dates back to Royle's tenure, I believe. He was a reporter for the Echo back then and was banned from the club on a number of occasions but especially so after the FA Cup defeat to Bradford, I believe.
Anyway, he doesn't appear to have any grudge against the club as far as I can see. Which doesn't fit with the BBC being anti-Everton in its sentiments.

37 Posted 07/08/2018 at 22:22:16
They are desperate to get credence as the greatest that never were.
Not worth get worked up.. Who takes the BBC and MOTD serious, in terms of the EPL?
38 Posted 08/08/2018 at 09:45:02
I provide examples of the RS bias and I can continue to every day as it's there every time I look at the BBC football page. You counter that the BBC's chief football writer is apparently an Evertonian. That is quite simply irrelevant. His writing about Everton is 'balanced and fair' you say.
So, let me see: One journalist on the BBC football site who is apparently an Evertonian writes about us (in your opinion) in a balanced and fair way and that's your argument? If you can't see how ridiculous that is then I can't really see the point of continuing. I'll stick with being 'over-sensitive and paranoid', thanks.
39 Posted 08/08/2018 at 20:31:34
The ' 7 year old ' comment is cringeworthy.
40 Posted 08/08/2018 at 21:16:07
The only thing cringeworthy is the original piece of writing
When Reds often say that blues are more interested in commenting on LFC then how can that view point be argues with when stuff gets posted like this on a very popular fan site.
My ‘argument to @38 James is not an argument at all. It is a question to you as the author. Ill write it more directly
Why would the BBC have an anti-Everton agenda?
In what way would it serve this British institution to have this.
I then simply made the point that their chief football writer seems balanced and fair. And that he happens to be an Evertonian. All things that are true.
I think that this is a paranoid piece of writing, and from somebody who seems overly sensitive that our new signing Digne has a tattoo that overtly suggests he had an affinity with LFC.
41 Posted 08/08/2018 at 22:03:24
Ian Wright: When Liverpool are doing well in the league, the league seems better.
Kevin Kilbane: Alisson is the signing of the summer.
42 Posted 09/08/2018 at 10:23:17
The other question you seem intent on repeating has already been answered by others in the thread, which is why I ignored it.
Simon 39 is right that your original comments were cringeworthy, and also derogatory. In fact, your original post is simply an offensive comment followed by some rambling nonsense that entirely misses the point.
No doubt you consider yourself some sort of genius scribe who sits twirling his quill in his castle on high passing judgement on all of us pathetic minions who scrabble in the dirt trying to offer a misguided opinion or two. I can merely bow to your superior knowledge and acumen, oh great one.
