‘As an Everton fan – Just wondering where your obsession with us has come from?’

As an Everton fan, your story has popped up on my Everton news feed.

This isn’t the first time you’ve posted your anti-Everton nonsense, what is your obsession with Everton football club all about?

Is it because Everton supporters didn’t accept the Newcastle United messiah, Rafa Benitez?

Someone who has made a large contribution to Everton’s failing this season, by ostracising and binning two of our best players in James and Digne, and playing the worst football I have seen in my 35 years watching them.

Rafa is statistically the worst manager in Everton’s history since our last relegation in 1951.

I can correct you on your article and say the media certainly aren’t obsessed with Frank Lampard and Everton, we don’t get any more attention than NUFC.

In fact, there is a media bias against all clubs outside of the so-called top six going (including NUFC) all the way down to referee decisions. The no penalties decisions Everton had against Liverpool and Manchester City this season only highlight this.

I remember the 90s when Newcastle United were media darlings under Keegan and Dalglish but you never actually won a single trophy. Everton meanwhile, didn’t get the same level off attention from the newspapers when they were regularly winning trophies in the 1980s.

I can understand your frustrations that Newcastle United are now the richest club in the world now but the game has moved on since the Chelsea and Manchester City takeovers. There isn’t the media fascination with a huge takeover now, especially if it’s done by people who behead and murder their own citizens.

The other factor is FFP, which Everton have found at their cost. So unless you find some dodgy Arab sponsors connected to your owners who will give you vastly overpriced sponsorships, your club’s incomings mean you won’t be able to spend whatever you want, beyond a couple of seasons when the healthy FFP Mike Ashley left you with runs out.

I’ve sent this because it isn’t the first time you’ve written disparaging blogs about us and on a wider scale, Geordies suddenly posting stuff like they want to start some kind of rivalry with us.

So, as an Everton fan, I’m intrigued where this obsession has come from?
