    C’mon Everton!

  2. Marc L says:

    Oh, lookee here. Not too bad of a matchup, this. Looks like one of those rare occasions where I need to throw support to the Blue Dippers.

  3. Guy says:

    How can that not be a second yellow on Gibson?

  4. Dust says:

    Look how many empty seats there are… LoL

  5. Marc L says:

    That Ross Barkley is a good-looking young player. I believe he is one of their academy guys.

  6. Scrumper says:

    If ever a game cried out for a goal this is it.

  7. Marc L says:

    Good defending by Jagielka in the first half and particularly from Coleman in the 2nd. Respect as always out to Sylvain D, though he didn’t do a whole lot.

    I can’t believe the Emptirates was clearing out so much even before added time. Club in a dogfight for UCL slot and all.

  8. Scrumper says:

    Never have so many, been bored senseless, by so few.

    No need for HawkEye at the Emirates or Goodison, neither of these two have any idea where the goals are.

      I’m glad I missed this one. One of the few EPL games I’ve missed all season.

      • Patrick says:

        I have also noticed that a certain team, which shall not be mentioned have been promoted up from the Championship. Just how big is the South Wales Derby compared to other derbies around Britain. Also what if any rivalry do the actual cities of Swansea and Cardiff have?

        • The Gaffer says:

          Swansea-Cardiff is one of the biggest rivalries in the Football League (and next season, the Premier League). The supporters of each club despite each other. Whenever the teams play each other, there is a huge police presence so there’s very little chance of violence. But without a heavy police presence, all hell would break loose.

          Cardiff is the capital of Wales, while Swansea is a much smaller city, so there’s always the belief that Cardiff gets special treatment over Swansea and other cities in Wales. When I was growing up in Wales, there was a big rivalry between Cardiff and Swansea rugby clubs, but for me the football derby has and will always be the biggest difference between both cities.

          Cheers,
          The Gaffer
