    Worked from home today so I could watch this at a sensible time without risking knowing the score. Awesome to watch. So good Im watching it again this evening with a beer.

    Forget the ciggies, the booze, the bit on the side, drink driving and doing drugs, its the hope that will kill you. I feel it too. It's scary.

    Confirmed Signing James Rodriguez

    HYS on BBC, just watch the RS bitters give it some. Wasn't sure about this a few months ago but right now, imo, get in!!!!

    Tbh when someone scores for us, the last thing I worry about is how they celebrate. They could flagellate themselves with the corner flag for all I care. I'm usually too busy doing cartwheels round the room or knee slides on the carpet to see it anyway.

    Where and when did it all start going awry for us?

    Could be pinned on many things but for me the rot started when Colin Harvey brought in 4 new players (too many at the time, most teams were bringing one or 2 new faces a season) Nevin, McCall and others I can't remember right now. Tidy players in their own right but not the right fit for the...

    Match Thread Everton v AFC Bournemouth - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Probably got the hump on us from 1989. Hard to believe but Millwall were in the top division (Div 1). Cascarino and a young Sheringham up top, proper Wimbledon type football. I was at that one, we were crap, 0-1 down, getting a bit of a thumping and two late goals got us the win.

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    Definitely a shot across the bows.

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    I'm not saying it's a good thing but I've always had a sense of loyalty to our players, always hoping that even crap ones will turn out well. I cant recall what I've posted here in support of Pickford but now I've had it with him. I can't see how he will ever be the GK we need. So many things...

    Anything less than 4 points and may as well treat the rest of the games as pre-season friendlies, or giving game time to likes of Kean, Beni etc

    Match Thread Everton 0-0 Liverpool - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    A rule change intended to benefit clubs with big squads, with lots of depth. During the course of the game they changed 5 outfield players, half the team in effect. That is not the football I know.

    So, the RS have brought 5 subs on, that's half a team. Shows what a fake fixture this is.

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    he was part of a really good football academy. Based very much on European stuff. Very heavy on technical skills, possession based football. I read somewhere that the step up to the league he was in was tough as it was more physical, but something he can work on. If we signed him i doubt he...

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    This lad was part of a really successful team. A very young side, 16, 17 18 yo mostly, playing in a semi-pro league. Men against boys kind of thing. The boys ran absolute rings round them.
