    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    By contrast i was very confident we would lose which is fast becoming my attitude before most games. Confident we'll lose Wednesday as well. This is now serious, we are in a major slump and with the fixtures to come it's likely to get even worse too. Losing becomes a habit which is very...

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    Well said, exactly this. My apprehensions about his appointment are unfortunately looking all too accurate. His modus operandi following any string of bad results is to blame anything and everything but himself. At Newcastle it was Ashley's fault all the time never Rafás! Benitez got a free...

    Match Thread Wolves v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Far from being excited I hope Monday never comes. I would put us down for a four nil defeat but wouldn't be surprised if far heavier. One good point is at least we won't lose on Saturday or Sunday which could mean the best weekend of the season still to come. I think I'll stick to supporting...

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    I'm fearing the worst if we keep him in charge tbh, relegation although unthinkable may even become a real possibility given Calvert-Lewin's prolonged absence. Once you start losing, and even what confidence there is in a few players drains away, then losing becomes the norm rather than the...

    Match Thread Everton v Watford - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    When you think early this century we had David Moyes not this red clown. What is it about never taking the kopite out of... Moyes, Martinez, Silva, Royle, Unsworth, Allardyce, Koeman all far better than this clown but Moyes still stands out as the best for me.

    They all merited 0/10 for me but Benitéz I would mark with a negative number as not even worth 0/10 Benitéz has to go, no manager should survive this As bad as some of his predecessors were, we never got humbled by relegation scrapers so badly, nowhere near in fact. Allardyce is ten times...

    Match Thread Man Utd v Everton. Saturday Oct 2nd.12.30 pm

    You only realise how valuable Harry Maguire is to United's defence when he's out injured. Without their stalwart defender their defence is s mess. You could tell in midweek against Villarreal he was out injured and you could tell today too. Without Maguire United are extremely vulnerable.

    2021/22 Jean-Philippe Gbamin

    I've huge sympathy for anyone undergoing a really tough time in their career as he has with his non stop never ending subseptibility to every kind of injury ever known to man, more especially if it starts badly affecting their private life too. It seems if he isn't actually injured at any...

    After everything since he left I now think of the Moyes years as the good old days

    The Rafà effect starting to really show now, hopefully the beginning of the end and sacked by Christmas
