    Duffy notably came in for 2-3 games in 2010 as well when he was still very young and gave a good account of himself

    Heck I think Osman first made the match day squad in something like 2000 against Arsenal of all sides

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    I'm hardly his biggest fan, but I think you have to be fair about these things He will inevitably make decisions that deserve criticism, and when that happens he should get it However, when you jump on him for everything deserved or not, you reach the point where the legitimate criticisms lose...

    Pickford was still injured then too, so it’s not like Benitez had a choice

    For me we lost the QPR game because of Begovic and some poor defending The squad Benitez picked was more than capable of winning We gifted them their two goals and then Begovic didn't get near any of their penalties. If he'd actually been anywhere close to competent then Davies wouldn't have...

    Pretty certain Amazon stated yesterday that it will be the Tuesday Hopefully that's not the case

    It remains on a Tuesday on Amazon Prime as of yesterday Liverpool play Saints on Saturday afternoon at home Ridiculous. There was zero need for that Brentford game to be on a Sunday when neither of us are in Europe

    Makes Darren Anderton look like the picture of good health

    2021/22 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    He’s great and would be very hard to replace, despite what his detractors would say

    2021/22 Anthony Gordon

    I'm not sure he should be starting when we've got the full starting line up back fit, but he should definitely be first off the bench IMO Iwobi wouldn't get another minute off that bench ahead of Gordon at this stage if I had my way

    We play Brentford away on a Sunday in November and then play Liverpool in the Derby on the following Tuesday Liverpool get to play on the Saturday at home though Because OF COURSE

    Oh this is nailed on Got to love our fan base sometimes lol Honestly I generally prefer players to be selfless in those sorts of situations anyway Would have probably been better for him to shoot, but a pass wasn't the worst idea

    Belfast Club Shop

    I remember going to Belfast and thinking it was strange that there wasn't an Everton shop when there was a Celtic, Liverpool and Rangers one We actually seem to be somewhat popular in Belfast as Jags was all over the posters in the betting shops when I went and guys would sell knock off Everton...

    Well we scored 2 goals despite the squad changes and if the goalkeeper hadn't gifted them 2 soft goals then we would have won 2-0, so I don't think we needed those players We shouldn't need more than 2 goals to beat QPR. The reason we did was because the keeper was cack

    2021/22 Salomón Rondón

    Once DLC is fit again we can move Rondon into the role he was supposed to have, an option off the bench who is gradually getting his fitness up to the required levels I think it's too early to write him off just yet. He might still be a good squad player once he gets up to the pace. He was...
