The man can coach. Raise your hand if you’re cool with the current run of form under Big Sam. Okay, you Liverpool fans reading this page who just raised your hands, go away - no one likes you anyway.

The Toffees face yet another difficult match Losing is no fun. Getting knocked out of the FA Cup early is no fun. Losing to Liverpool is no fun. So losing to Liverpool in an early round FA Cup match is really no fun. The only consolation for RBM staffers? Most of us at least predicted it! Before...

no Everton fought hard at Anfield today. It wasn’t enough. I know you’re tired of hearing that. I am too. Stuff happened, though.

Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Jan 4 3:34 PM
Back to Anfield. We don’t often get two derbies in such quick succession, much less two away ones, and yet here we are. Just a few weeks ago Sam Allardyce’s Everton frustrated the piss out of Jurgen Klopp’s men, but Everton are in a spot of bad form, and Klopp will be ready to make adjustments. H...

Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Dec 11 8:47 PM
Big Sam has done it again. Everton went to Anfield and got a draw against Liverpool . The rest doesn’t really matter, does it? The who and how often fade into the background when it comes to derbies — get a result, and everybody’s happy, even if it’s ugly. And oh boy, was it ugly on Sunday. The T...

Three Thoughts from a big Derby draw Ugly but effective tactical set up One thing that cannot be expected from a Sam Allardyce managed team is beautiful free-flowing football.

In today’s links: Allardyce gushes, Klopp fumes, and the Blues get a hard-earned point. Who else has a Merseyside Derby hangover? What a match.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Dec 10 4:59 PM
Bravery. It’s understandable if you were frustrated by Sam Allardyce’s game plan in this match, but frankly, it worked.
