The Reds are champions of Europe and one of the best teams in the world at the moment, through a variety of factors involving excellent long-term strategic planning and intense, focused training at Melwood.
Earning plaudits for their brilliant, exciting and effective football, we must be one of the best teams in the world to support right now.
One Everton fan, however, known simply as ‘Zuma’, suspects something is up – and it’s a hilarious theory.
According to Sport Bible, he wrote on an Everton fan forum: “The steds thing is something I’ve thought for a while, wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if a doping scandal comes out about them in a few years.
“Suarez – playing in Holland until his mid 20s, starts off as pretty good for them but nothing special, then suddenly turns into arguably the best player in the world for a season.
“Mane, good for Southampton but just as likely to get sent off as he is to score, inconsistent and raw. Now he’s a world beater.
“No salad, struggled at Chelsea, very good for Roma but not to the point where he was destroying teams on his own, goes to them and becomes unplayable.
“VVD – good for Celtic, good for Southampton, but to be playing at that level to his mid 20s means he can’t have been seen as anything special or he’d have been spotted earlier. Goes to them and becomes one of the best defenders in Europe.”
We’re not sure where to start with that. We can only assume ‘No Salad’ is some kind of attempt of making fun of Mo Salah, though it’s not exactly the best joke we’ve ever heard.
There’s clearly nothing that the Reds have done wrong – good scouting and coaching is hardly a crime. Combine the best sporting director the Premier League has and one of the best manager’s of his generation in Jurgen Klopp, and that’s what you get.
Everton have spent a lot over the last few years, but not very effectively at all. That, quite simply, is the only difference. There’s no foul play to see here – though claim has certainly made us smile!
