Tottenham is hated because they are such a massive rival of Liverpool.

Pacman told me so it must be true. #YNWA #LFC

I have nothing against them tbh
lol I thought of that later (hence the edit), but the only Arsenal fan I think that's around now is Saugus. DATW's in lockout hibernation as far as I can tell and I don't remember who else roots for the Gunners. I'm kind of a quasi, I haven't watched as much this year as last year but I'm stunned they're doing so well quite frankly.

I could have sworn Chelsea or ManU was Arsenal's biggest rival though?

If I was going to follow an American it'd be Howard over Dempsey anyway but I don't pay any more attention to Everton than Fulham/Tottenham.
I don't know the severity of all of the rivalries, but before I picked a team, I only had a list of which ones I hated. I was told that all of those teams hated Tottenham, so it seemed to be a logical fit on my end

I think Chelsea is the bigger rival on the pitch because Spurs hasnt really title challenged in the way Arsenal and Chelsea did in the middle of last decade. Tottenham, though, is the closest local rivalry.

They're all big rivalries, but the one that brings out the most hate is Tottenham because of the proximity of the clubs. When they meet it's called the North London Derby, and the worst elements of both fanbases turn up. Almost like us and the Rangers.

Oh, please. To Everton supporters, the biggest cause for joy is finishing higher than Liverpool in the table.

In all seriousness, now...

To add my piece to the whole discussion on the last page, I don't even dislike Everton outside of when Liverpool's playing them. Both clubs are an extreme source of pride for the city of Liverpool, and there's no real off-pitch nonsense that leads to certain fans rooting for one club over the other, e.g. Celtic and Rangers supporters largely being Catholic and Protestant, respectively

If anything, it's Manchester United who I hate with a burning passion, and if you go to England, you'll find a mutual contempt for the city of Manchester as a whole among supporters of both Liverpool and Everton.

Back in the day, when both Liverpool and Everton were perennial powerhouses and would meet in the semi-finals or final of a Cup tourney, it was extremely common to see supporters of both teams sitting together, and they would all partake in chants of "Merseyside, Merseyside!" and "Are You Watching, Manchester?"

Even to this very day...





Manchester United is by far Liverpool's most hated rival, and Everton is a close second only on the pitch. Off the pitch, Liverpool and Everton supporters coexist quite peacefully.

Everton finished 7th last season.

Liverpool finished 8th.

Everton is sitting in 2nd.

Liverpool is not in 1st.

Right now, pacman, he's right.

Liverpool's rebuilding. Everton has great talent and a great manager. I'm not surprised, either.

Yes. You seem to have inadvertently made a correct statement that I would agree with.

Arsenal better wax the floor with West Ham today. Badly need a win to keep up with the clubs currently at the top of the table.

Be warned, West Ham has been superb as of late, especially on their home ground.

Also, why can't Arsenal just make those yellow kits their permanent second-choice jerseys after the red and white?

Those are beautiful.
