Liverpool vs Everton, Merseyside Derby: Open Thread

Jamie Carragher should play a role in his last ever Merseyside Derby before he hangs up his boots at the end of the season to become a pundit on Sky Sports.

The veteran Liverpool defender will be just one of the story lines today. Another one will be the mosaic that the Liverpool supporters in the Kop will lift up before the match kicks off to thank Everton supporters for their support regarding the Hillsborough Disaster.

Everton sit five points ahead of Liverpool in the league table, so there’s not only the question of Merseyside bragging rights in today’s match, but with three matches to go for both sides this season, there’s the question of who will finish above whom.

Before, during or after today’s match, post your rants, raves, questions or observations in the comments section below.

For viewers in the United States, the match will be shown live on FOX Soccer at 8:30am ET.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

  1. Or, as the promo announcer from fox call it…the ‘mercy’ side durby. And don’t forget the Champions League finalists…Bore Russia Dortmund.

  2. Today will also see a third Welsh club in league football with Newport County and Wrexham facing each other at Wembley in the Conference Premier Playoff Final. All in all it seems as if it has been a good year for Welsh football.

    Gaffer, what is your take on Welsh football as a whole?

    1. Best names in football bar none. TNS, Airbus, etc.

      It’d be nice to see Wrexham back in the league, especially if Chester catch them up in a couple of years. Good excuse to show the Mickey Thomas screamer against Arsenal Gaffer if Wrexham get promoted.

  3. when was the last time this derby went to halftime with no bookings i can’t remember.

    match needs a goal to get it going boring first half.

        1. The best part of the Merseyside derby is always the 5 minutes before kick off. As soon as the game starts its invariably dull as dishwater apart from the fouls.

  4. Entering a Gus Free Zone.

    Video a bit ahead of audio. Pause video feed momentarily and…..synced! :-)

  5. Nice stat from Fox during the game that filled half the screen and covered up the play, “8 Liverpool goals since Suarez ban, 2 v Chelsea, 6 v Newcastle.”
    So Suarez was banned and scored in the Chelsea game” How did he manage that?
