With the derby coming up on Saturday, Thomas from Royal Blue Mersey -- SB Nation's Everton Blog -- sent along some questions about our side. Here were my answers, and his to my questions are coming tomorrow.
1) What is your opinion on Liverpool's season so far?
It's kind of where we started. The first four performances of the season, in the league were pretty encouraging, but included a frustrating draw with Sunderland on the opening day and another loss to Stoke where we basically dong-whipped them all over the pitch but couldn't break down the stone fortress they set up in their box (I've date girls who've done the same). But then came the debacle at Spurs where our pace-less midfield was totally exposed, Agger got hurt, and Liverpool were thrashed. The two games since, the cup win at Brighton and the home win vs. Wolves, couldn't be categorized as anything more than ok. While it's not pessimistic, I feel that saying I'm cautiously optimistic would be just a touch too strong as well.
