Why is he so uptight?
30 or so... that's 200, maybe 300 in there.... I'm a mouthy idiot who chats to everyone and anyone I meet. I love a beer and was out watching the footie yesterday and probably spoke to 30 or 40 blues alone throughout the day, never mind reds who don't want it either. Everyone doesn't want it full stop.We all think we know how the general reaction is amongst fans because we know 30 or so fans that are against his appointment, I can’t see many overall being happy with his appointment but not to the point of them getting volatile and toxic over it like many are expecting from the off. I can understand the hardcore fans that travel to all away games being peed off over it and if results don’t go well early doors it may get messy....
Many I know personally are similar to myself, they’re unhappy but generally at the point of accepting because they’ve become accustomed to us being put through these situations every 18 months now and are beyond getting angry over it all.
See you in AugustBye then Everton
It's been an emotional 47 years loving you.
Today you took that love and stamped it into the ground. I have forgiven you many many times over the years for the crap you've put me through but I cant forgive you this. Dont know what im gonna fill the massive void in my life with but I know it wont be football.
Farewell and Godspeed
the successful coaches of today seem to play a different brand than what was popular when Benitez made his name . There aren’t too many contemporaries around , the game evolves and changes and those that survive tend to grow with it . Some don’t and their career tends to slip down the leagues .
Like with players I’d much rather have a manager on his way up the mountain than his way down .
Why??? They clearly don’t give a damn what we think
Agreed.To me any apology for those small club comments would be more a barometer of how serious he is when it comes to trying to establish a good rapport with the fan base
He made them years ago and at the time I almost found them funny because I saw it for what it was, a manager angry that he couldn't do anything to lay a glove on a team who put on a solid away performance, so he decided to make a comment to try and regain control of the narrative
It's standard behaviour, not just for him but most managers
However, he's now managing Everton and he's already a divisive appointment, so he needs a show of good faith IMO
Just apologise and make it look genuine. Write a book in 15 years and walk it back if you want to keep attending games at Anfield whilst in retirement if you want to. For right now, just do the right thing and show that you actually care about doing this job the right way
