Goodison Park and Ibrox used to have terrible camera angles. It was a thing that was unique to Protestant clubs, as Everton and Rangers are.

Old highbury and Filbert street were awful. A 20 harder from Filbert Street looked like a goal of the season contender. Highbury was a 20 yard tap in.

Strange how a protestant club like Everton have had more Irish and catholic players play for them than most other clubs, including that other protestant club, Liverpool. Remind me again. When Ronnie Whelan played for Liverpool in 1981 was he the first or second Irish catholic to play for Liverpool. I always forget that one.

When QPR got promoted about two years ago, if a player was on the wing nearest the camera at the half way line it seemed as if you were looking directly down on his head. Looked strange, think they added a few more cameras for close ups in those situations now though.

Everton has always been a club with a strong Irish Catholic tradition. Are you sure you're not mixing them up with Liverpool FC?

It's well known that Eveton are the Protestant club in Liverpool, comrade - you only have to look at their colours, they play in blue, like Rangers. 

Liverpool are the socialist team, hence the red colours. 

Everton = Protestant, Unionist
Liverpool = Socialist, Internationalist and the team of choice of Irish Republicans

It's well known? Really?

Both Merseyside clubs actually have Methodist origins. However, Everton developed strong Irish Catholic links in the 1950s with the likes of Tommy Eglington and Jimmy O'Neill at the club, as well as Johnny Carey managing them. In contrast, Livepool's history of signing Irish players was almost non-existent prior to the 1980s.

A a matter of interest, are all clubs that wear red socialist?!

Everton are a well-known* member of the "Blues Brothers" alliance, along with Rangers, Chelsea, Linfield, the Conservative and Unionist Party. the DUP and Fine Gael. 

*Known by the dogs on the street, just like it's known that Gerry Adams personally ordered the killing of Jean McConville.

It's well-known that there's an alliance between Rangers, Chelsea and Linfield, but Everton do not form part of that group. Maybe you're aware of some connection that the rest of the general public are unaware of. Perhaps you could post up a link or two to substantiate this?

Everton and Rangers have been almost feeder clubs for each other over the years, and many players have played for both, like Trevor Steven, Gary Stevens, Duncan Ferguson, Michael Ball, Richard Gough, David Weir, Alex Cleland, and indeed managed both, such as Walter Smith. 

Contrast that to the Liverpool-Celtic connection, with Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Keane, Craig Bellamy and Gary Gillespie, and the never to be broken ties which were strengthened following Hillsborough, and reinforced during our superbly contested, but brilliantly sporting, both on and off the pitch, UEFA Cup ties in 1997 and 2003



Long live the socialist, internationalist Timmy Alliance.

What you listed are just coincidences, true Celtic and Liverpool have a healthy relationship but Everton are the Irish club - Liverpool FC didn't even exist when the Irish were flocking to Everton-owned Anfield.
Also I don't think many Everton fans would actually care if they were protestant, they're not obsessed with sectarian wank.


Posted By: AlanH
Date Posted: 04 May 2014 at 12:55am
A cursory glance through Google images shows a similar array of scarves to signify the Everton - Celtic relationship, but well done on effort.

John Collins, David Moyes and Alan Stubbs will surely be airbrushed from the memory of all those staunch Unionists at Everton!

It's funny how some Liverpool fans in Ireland have a collective amnesia when it comes to the club's history. The role of John Houlding and the Freemasons in the development of the club is one that hardly sits comfortably with the ideals of socialism and Irish republicanism.

Not that it matters much to me as I don't support either Merseyside club. However, I suspect the "Timmy Alliance" comprises a handful of barstoolers somewhere!

Jim Larkin was a season ticket holder at Anfield  from 1910 to 1936 although he nearly got banned because he let other people use it in 1913.  He always said his proudest day was when he met Elisha Scott for a pre-match pint in 1931.

Tell that to Newstalk when I won "Sports Master of the Universe" 2007*, demolishing their resident expert, Ciaran Murphy, in the process**. One of the questions in the final was: "What has traditionally been the Protestant football club in the city of Liverpool?***" to which I correctly answered "Everton".

Historical fact: the toffee was originally a sweet which could only be afforded by the upper-class Protestant families of Liverpool. This is where the phrase "toffee nosed" comes from. As Everton were the upper class Protestant club in the city of Liverpool, they got the nickname "the Toffees". 

Everton, as we all know, was founded by an Orangeman. As Liverpool, the club of the people, became more successful over the decades and the Everton fans became increasingly bitter at our success, we satirised their Orange history by calling them "the Lemons", and later, "the bitters". 

Like the word "boycott" (which of course comes from the decision of the local people in Mayo during the Land War to ostracise the cruel, heartless landlord Captain Boycott), these phrases don't come from nowhere. They have a historical basis.

Quality fishing? The only thing Sid has caught is a bad case of the wums.

When a wum makes a false, incendiary statement you can either:

- Ignore them, say nothing and let the falsehood perpetuate and influence the ignorant mind.

- Challenge them and present the facts of the matter.

The truth has thankfully already been stated here that Everton and Liverpool were started by the same English Methodist folk. It has also been stated that Everton have the richer of the Irish heritage with more Irish international players representing them. Thankfully for posters who post the truth I learnt much of this from forums such as this one.

Before Sid got into his hilarious satirical yarns he made a simple incendiary statement in a thread on camera angles, linking Everton to Rangers. It is the myth he was told as a lad when he started supporting Liverpool. He felt the need to post this display of bitterness on the day that Everton lose to Liverpool's title rivals to scupper Liverpool's title hopes. Funniest poster on here? In the wum stakes, he's worse than Javier.

Sorry to go on topic, but re the White Hart Lane camera angle, the high camera position doesn't work for 3D, as you can't ave 3D looking down on someone's head so they have to use the lower angle for that. All Europa LEague games have to use this angle.

Your posts are libelous against me and Everton. I'm surprised the mods allow it to be honest. Fairly sectarian in nature as well.

A bitter Liverpool fan attacking their rival club and myself now as well because I know enough history to challenge them is not in good taste, even if some of you think it is acceptable under the guise of 'humour'.

I don't even support Everton. My only interest in them is because they have some good Irish players.

As far as my understanding of the law is concerned, I don't think I've started, as I'm pretty sure calling a person, group of persons or institution "Protestant" is not a libel. 

If Everton want to sue me anyway, the option remains open to them. 

I find your idea that calling an institution "Protestant" constitutes a libel to be sectarian, by the way, and I hope you'll retract it.

Here's a tip. Stop libellously throwing around the word Protestant to describe football clubs and people on forums.
As far as my understanding of the law is concerned, I don't think I've started, as I'm pretty sure calling a person, group of persons or institution "Protestant" is not a libel. 

If Everton want to sue me anyway, the option remains open to them. 

I find your idea that calling an institution "Protestant" constitutes a libel to be sectarian, by the way, and I hope you'll retract it.


Showing your ignorance again. You need to look up the meaning of the word libel.

Here's one: anything that is defamatory or that maliciously or damagingly misrepresents.

Your continued misuse of this word to describe both football clubs and individuals is libelous. As far as the law is concerned and proving a libel there are certain requirements to be met if one is able and willing to do so. Let's put it this way. Write and publish it a national newspaper and we'll see if Everton do anything to you. I doubt they're monitoring this forum. You're libelous writings simply reflect poorly on this forum though.

As for your last sentence. Keep digging, wum. I'm not sure you even know what you're trying to say here.

You'll note that I merely called Everton " the Protestant club" in Liverpool. I didn't say they were exclusively Protestant, hence my noting of Mo Johnston playing for them. 

Why stop there? Why not say I'm libelling Liverpool for associating them with socialism? 

Why do you find one libellous and the other not to be? There are plenty of people out there who would find being labelled "socialist" as injurious to their reputation. 

Again you're attaching negative connotations to Protestantism, and I find these connotations to be sectarian. 

Please stop.

You're really not the sharpest tool, are you?

Your libel against them is yourself calling them a Protestant club. This is a lie. You are maliciously misrepresenting them by saying that they are a sectarian organisation when you know this to be false.

This is what you said. Couldn't be any more clear.

Anfield.  Barootal angle.  Too high. 

Why can't stadium designers recognise that there is an optimum camera angle for viewers on tv and make sure they build a television gantry to ensure this angle?  The gantry doesn't have to be underside of the roof. Idiots.

I go to games where my team is playing.  I don't go to other games just like a Man Utd fan won't go to Liverpool games but would watch it if it's on tv.

I don't think it's a sh*t angle but takes a bit of getting used to. 

I prefer the old angle at Anfield  from a tv viewer perspective as it was closer and lower angle a la Highbury for e.g.

So you are saying they have to be mutually exclusive options? Liverpool built a brand new multi million pound stand. You telling me that building a camera position at the correct angle would put out the fans?   Then tell me why there are multiple cameras around the stadium such as those monitoring the goal lines and reverse camera angles etc?  Amazing that they can be accommodated without a problem! 
Also can you tell me why other stadiums who had sh*t camera angles were able to move them to more ideal locations?  E.g Bolton Wanderers.

It is an opinion that carries much weight.  As for goal stanchion technology that is a more serious issue that has turned fans away from the game.  If you care about the game, which you evidently don't then you should be concerned about the stanchion trend in modern football.

If they get in the CL next season they'll need to move it. CL group stage requires gantries that are 3D-video capable, and that has a minimum angle. Spurs had to do it when they were in the CL.

The angle is poor, even though it better shows the viewer how many away team players are camped in their own box, when the ball comes near them. It's rarely less than 10.
It's the first change of camera angle at Anfield since 1972, when the camera was in the opposite stand. When it is moved at a later date, it could be at ground level, similiar to the Allianz Arena which would be even worse.

Stadiums with rubbish TV camera positions?  Surprising nobody's mentioned Wembley.
 
The kick-off of the second half of EVERY SINGLE MATCH at Wembley is to a background of empty seats, because corporate ticket holders are too busy stuffing their faces with food and drink to get back to the game starting.  Why can't Wembley simply move the cameras to the other side, where presumably there wouldn't be as many empty seats at the restart.

Yeah, it's shocking. Those seats are, as far as I know, all Club Wembley tickets. That means, I think, that they aren't necessarily fans of the clubs in question, just those who commit to buying tickets to both cup semi finals, the final and England internationals. Assuming I'm right on that, it makes sense that there would be so many empty seats for the semi finals.
