    Match Thread Everton vs West Ham United - Preview, Match Report & MotM Poll

    Small steps. It was good , ground out victory yesterday and the signs of progression under Lampard continue. We are playing some good football at times and have become difficult to beat. I was little disappointed how much we were pushed onto our back foot following our goal. Well taken goal by...

    Robinson is scum but you clutch the same flag to your chest and espouse the same patriotism,

    So you only consider being just if someone else does it first. Of course we don’t live in an ideal world but surely it would be better to aspire to, and strive for, a better future than merely to supinely accept the squalid imperfections of the past and present. I’m not surprised I’ve worked...

    Eloquent and considered and shallow contribution to the debate.

    We could become a Republic adopt a new flag and show some contrition. We could also restore stolen artefacts and pay reparations were lasting damage has been inflicted. Then we could begin afresh and create a country to be truly proud of. Just a suggestion like.

    You can’t really disassociate a national flag from a nations history however much you would like to. When you wave the Union flag whatever you may think it represents, millions more across the world and at home associate it with brutal oppression. For many the Union flag is symbolically...

    The flag that flew over the subjugation, rape , pillage and enslavement of millions of innocent people? I think it is perfectly represented by Robinson and his ilk.

    I suspect regardless of their views they are entitled to use the facilities of the state such as ‘dole’ and the NHS because they contribute to it like everyone else.

    It was a totally unnecessary and sycophantic decision by the FA to cancel the weekends football. But large parts of the country are also engaged in a toadyism competition cancelling events people have organised and looked forward to attending. There are ,though, many who have avoided this...

    All the benefits of this nation you reference were brought about by the struggles of mostly ordinary people and endorsed by an elected parliament , they owe nothing to the descendants of William the Conqueror, As a lifelong Republican I do find it amusing how a nations leisure activities are...

    2022/23 Abdoulaye Doucouré

    Never been a fan to be honest even though he has had some occasional good games for us. Davies offers more to the team and I’d pick him over Doucoure every time. Decent squad player but that’s about it.

    He’s not a particularly outstanding defender, too many flaws in his game. His poor positioning and a distinct lack of aerial ability have been a major disappointment for me. I would be happy to sell him next summer.

    Personally I’d place him above Doucoure who I think is very overrated.
