    Duncan Ferguson - The Coach

    very good post. Growing up in the 90s and getting tonnes of stick of kopites when we were generally crap, this man was a massive hero.

    2019/20 Marco Silva

    Look at the table, look at who we have played so far. yes, Leicester away is a difficult fixture. But unfortunately for Silva, when you lose to the 3 promoted sides, fixtures like this take on added significance. Under the circumstances, it’s another crap result. He shouldn’t be sacked for...

    In a bar in Argentina and a local left this on the table shortly after the game. Quite poetic really

    2019/20 Marco Silva

    He isn't responsible for the whole situation, but other teams have had to contend with losing players, Leicester lost Harry Maguire and didn't really replace him, because the centre back market was terrible. They were quoted over £50 million for Aki. Brands replaced Gana with Gbamin, sadly he...

    Next Manager (Poll)

    Out of the above options, the only one I think we have a chance of attracting is Blanc. But he has been out of football for over three years.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    The fact there are no rumours at this stage suggests that nothing is happening.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Losing Zouma and Gana. If we go into this season signing Rojo I would say our first 11 is weaker than last season. We knew we could lose Zouma for 12 months and we end up with Rojo.

    Transfer Rumour Zaha with poll

    You don't want to be condecending to Palace because we had it a few years ago and its not pleasent. But if Zaha is an £80 million player, what is he doing at Palace? I like Palace, their fans are generally sound, but a team brining in Jordan Ayew and Camarasa aren't going to challenge the top...

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Clubs generally dont given running narratives of when bids are made or rejected. Palace are rumourued to have bid £8m for McCarthy, but neither us or Palace have said anything. By leaking it to the press it puts more pressure on Everton. Gets our fans excited, raises expectations but also gives...

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I haven't got a clue what is going on. But my reading would be, we have made a second bid including Tosun and McCarthy and Palace have rejected it. Palace have then leaked the bid to Sky. That then puts Everton in a really tricky position. We want to sell McCarthy and Tosun and we will want...

    2018/19 Marco Silva - New Poll Added

    We clearly have a problem bottling it. When things are going well, we look like a decent football team. The problem is how we respond to adversity, which generally this season has been to fold. The questions is, "do you think Silva is the man to inspire our players with confidence, to stop them...
