    One reason why I like this forum is all the new words that I learn.

    An entertaining article in The Athletic [Paywall] which includes this:

    Duncan Ferguson closed the away changing room door at Anfield on Sunday evening and let rip.

    Enraged by what is already being talked about as the worst 45 minutes Everton have mustered in a Merseyside derby in modern history, the Scot began dishing out some home truths.

    The players, understandably, were still bursting with anger and emotion. Captain Seamus Coleman and defender Mason Holgate had been videoed arguing with a gloating Liverpool supporter as they made their way down the tunnel minutes before.

    As Ferguson read the riot act, some fired back.

    Despite being part of a full-strength Everton side which had just lost to a starting XI not far from being Liverpool’s under-23 team, some senior players insisted they had given their all during the second half.

    Ferguson’s tirade was met with an element of defiance, with some strongly disputing the allegation they had thrown in the towel in the last 45 minutes at Anfield. Instead, these individuals chose to blame the setup and tactics for the crushing defeat.
    Mentality Pygmies.

    Poppycock.

    I think Ancelotti better take on board what Fabian Delph has to say. He probably knows more than that silly Italian. I mean Delph won the Premier League two times with Manchester City, what has Ancelotti ever won, eh?

    What really amused me about this cup tie was the Ancelotti factor. More than a few pundits and journos who should know better (and waaaay more than a few social media “experts” - though none here) were touting the fact that because Ancelotti seemed to have Klopp’s number in recent seasons with Napoli, then it was certain doom for Liverpool in this game.

    Very lazy. Having Mertens, Insigne, Milik, Koulibaly et al. is a damn sight different from having Calvert-Lewin, Walcott, Kean, Sidibe et al. It was almost as if the pundits believed it was Ancelotti vs. Klopp on the pitch.

    I’d hazard a guess that Klopp might even know this Everton side better than Ancelotti, probably as a well as, anyway. And while the CL games were all close run things, in the end, who came out on top? But I do find it funny that it was taken almost as a given that Ancelotti is without any iota of a doubt, Klopp’s kryptonite.
