Liverpool FC fans delight in Everton semi-final


Liverpool fans have welcomed the news that the club will face local rivals Everton in the FA Cup Semi-Final at Wembley Stadium on April 14th.

Everton beat Sunderland 2-0 at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night in the FA Cup 6th Round Replay to secure their place in the semi-finals.

It is the first time the two sides have met in an FA Cup Semi-Final since 1977 and Reds fans from Merseyside and around the world have embraced the forthcoming tie.

Here are just a sample of comments from fans on the FA Cup Semi-Final fixture from our forums. Let us know your thoughts and predictions in the comments below, on our Liverpool FC forums, on Twitter @thisisanfield or on Facebook.

“Pleased it’s Everton – I think Sunderland may have provided us with more problems. Should be a great day out!” north jet

“Guaranteed to be a 1230/1245 KO. Those c**** at the FA will want us in and out of London as quickly as possible.” tafkad

“Great. Should give us a real lift to end the season if we can beat them.” MichaelScott

“Should be a hell of a game, one of two that I shall be enthused about watching for the rest of this season. Would love hearing the “Merseyside, Merseyside, are you watching manchester?” chant again but there’s no chance of that happening nowadays.” DeathOrGlory

“Hopefully Moyes will put out the same team he did last time….doubt it. Delighted with this, a final against them would be epic but I will have to settle for this and then beating the chavs in the final.” Showdown

“Happy with this. Another derby to look forward to and hopefully a similar result as last time round in the league! Would have been more worried against Sunderland as we have been average when facing them this season and also the fact that some players may still have underestimated them come the semi-final.” liverpool_singh

“Im glad its Everton, for one main reason, cause the players consider the Everton fixture to be a big game, and they will atleast turn up for it. The occasion isnt enough, the opposition counts. We always turn up for the derby, like we did a few days back.” sami

    Great to have all Merseyside derby semi final at Wembley, on the anniversary of Hillsborough #JFT96.
    Also good to see Moysie there after 10 years

    I think my nerves would have preferred Sunderland, but I’ve heard and read several Bluenoses getting carried away with themselves already. We may be woefully inconsistent at the moment, but they underestimate us at their peril.

    I’m not surprised Everton fans are happy with this, they can smell blood. Liverpool will collapse this time, Everton will make the final…..guaranteed.

      Always makes me laugh when bluenoses get carried away with themselves. Wonder what their self-pitying excuse will be this time

    You should be all pissed off with them comments, raise your game etc, absolute bunch of wasters, you should play with that passion every time you step on the pitch, not just against is and the mancs!

       here here well said.its a long long season and i expect our players to turn up and perform to there full potential in every single match be it against accrington stanley in the cups or Man ure. they r paid a fortune to perform week in week out and if they dont they should sacrifice there weeks wages on grounds that they didnt earn it and dont deserve it. that should save us a few bob come end of season with most of our players performances shouldnt it, christ wi the amount of wages we coulda held back from poor performing players this season coulda bought us a £30m+ player for next season on top of what we get from the owners and what we recoup from players goin out, maybe then will we see passion and the desire to win cause players dont wanna be missing out on there 50k-100k a week do they ?

    i dont feel too optimistic anymore bout liverpool fc winning any match nowadays, cause i never know which team is gonna turn up come matchday, they are so frustrating to watch it gets on ur nerves and u find yourself shouting at the tele an awful lot. i hope we make it to the final but i have a sneaky incline we r gonna get beat if the past 2 months is anything to go by. i know this is negative thinking but i feel it has been forced on me by the club, few years back when rafa was in charge i believed we could beat anyone we came up against and most of the time we did but since this transition i c no hope for the near future league wise and the champions league . i hope im wrong and i know i should have faith but these players bar a couple aint done nothing on the pitch to change my views. good luck in the semis lads and ffs will u all turn up like u wanna win
