Nah, I could put up with that because United fans were slightly bearable
United aren't Evertons rivals, you'd deal with that easily.

The point I'm making is you've never seen your rival win the prem yet, You've seen us fall short a few (or more) times.

I've seen United win a bunch of titles and when they didn't they were always near the top. It's only been recently that they've dropped off (Bar a season under Mou).

I know. I'm being over dramatic as it's fun.

I think that is the other part of the equation - Liverpool winning takes away a lot of fun for opposition supporters who have dined out on Gerrard's slip etc. and were hoping to forever

Wolves worry me. Solid side.

On a different note, a 4-0 win for Stevenage!

On the topic of Arsenal/Chelsea, does anyone remember Diego Costa's epic performance against us in 2015?



Unbelievable how he managed to get Gabriel sent off. That man was an entertainer of the highest order.

And that match was quintessentially Arsenal - Chelsea were struggling massively that season, while we had our best squad since Cesc/Persie left. Heck, maybe our best since 2008. Somehow we managed to lose this 2-0 on the back of this incident.

Peak Costa, peak Arsenal. He was next level that day, amazingly got away with the incident with Koscielny at the time too (referee didn’t see it supposedly). He was also arguably best player on the pitch in the cup final later that season, I was very relieved when Conte subbed him off.

Costa really was the master troll. Never really seemed settled after his first title winning season and was persistently attempting to force his way out thereafter. Top class striker, could have been a true great with a better mentality.
