The Premier League 2010/11 Previews, Part 8: Everton – Steady As She Goes

“It may surprise some younger readers to learn this out, but when Bill Shankly retired from Liverpool Football Club and football in 1974, Everton were historically as successful as his club had been to that point. Liverpool had, in 1974, eight championship wins and two FA Cup wins, while Everton had seven championship wins and three FA Cup wins. To that extent, the man that blasted a hole between the perception of the two clubs in Liverpool was Bob Paisley and, by 1990, Liverpool had eighteen championship wins to Everton’s nine, and the blue half of Merseyside have been firmly regarded from the outside as the junior partner in the city’s football landscape ever since.” (twohundredpercent)
