Malcolm Dawson writes…last week after the failure of our boys to beat Norwich at the Stadium of Light, I compared Pete Sixsmith’s mood with that of James Stewart’s George Bailey at the start of the yule tide favourite “It’s a Wonderful Life”. At half time against Everton it seemed as though Clarence Oddbody was performing the first of the hoped for miracles we will need if the club is to retain its place in the Premier League. Although during the second half that little tinkling bell was more of an alarm call, Vito Mannone ensured that no clangers were dropped, resulting in the first Everton defeat at Goodison in 2013. Here is where you can find Pete Sixsmith’s immediate post match seven word verdict direct from Liverpool.

No own goal, no sending off and suprise, suprise we win a game. Beat the horsepunchers twice on the trot and now the Toffees, thought we were dead and buried after Norwich but we’re back within touching distance again, who ‘d ave thought it?
We’ve been reasonably polite Smog. Now why don’t you just volunteer for euthanasia. They’ve some good clinics in Switzerland for the likes of you. Now f***(edited) off.
Don’t confuse him, thinks euthanasia makes you younger !
And all the way to Asia too!
You won roddy aye, but did you defeat them?
Luck ? I take it you weren’t at the Wonga Council Tip yesterday then?
Beat them, edged them , shaded them, dispatched them (that has a nice ring), whatever, so yeah, we defeated them. You could say Sunderland upset Everton, but really it’s you Sunderland has upset.
Sign someone who can score next week. There’s my 7
We defeat Everton? Wow!
Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!
Happy Christmas you jammy buggars
I had given up hope after last week and was much more relaxed as a result watching the start of Soccer Saturday. Now they go and give us hope again!
Can we follow up in the next 2?
Separately, I have expressed doubts about Mannone on the site recently. It sounds like he has had a stormer so I would be delighted to be forced to eat my words if he can carry on.
