    Ah that Lampard did it sneak inside the post? I agree, excrutiatingly painful memories. There were a few Evertonians inside Elland Road that night.

    Begovic had all the presence of a limp piece of lettuce. Goalkeepers are meant to project themselves and be bigger than what they are, he seemed to shrink into himself.

    Super Hoops? They'll be the No Hope Hoops by the time we've finished with them. C'mon blues! QPR 1 - 3 Everton

    Top 4 ?

    My point is this: I feel there is a school of thought which believes that playing, for want of a better word, 'pretty' football somehow jeopardises the chances of winning games, I don't think that's necessarily the case. Although there will always be examples to support both sides of the...

    Humble apologies, it was Brighton 1-0 Tottenham. Connolly came on and had a great chance to make it 2-0 late on...caused confusion in my simple mind. Anyway a sterling example of being deliberately obtuse - well done!

    Top 4 ?

    Cheers Mikelsgoat, I'm not obsessed with pretty football, I just despair at some of the decisions our players make on the pitch and the lack of imagination in our play. I think it should also be said that 'pretty' football can be very helpful in winning games. For example I don't know if you...

    Top 4 ?

    Regardless of where we finish, for me the real issue is the football EFC has played has been turgid at best, which is really disappointing. I spoke to my son about it, he reckoned I'm probably exercising some sort of bias, relating to picking faults in the thing you are emotionally invested in...

    Much better from Delph today. So his pass completion was 0% and his tackling non-existent...but he was wearing the correct socks.

    I'm predicting 0-0. Obviously hoping for 0-1 (Sigurdsson 90 + 2' pen)

    I appreciate that, it's whether he can tolerate the mediocrity. If Everton frustrate the eff out of me, I can't imagine how he feels.

    Match Thread Brighton HA v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll.

    Can't help but feel pessimistic about tonight. Unless we drastically improve and make better decisions when in possession, I see a comfortable win for Brighton. Only question remaining this season is will Carlo stay if, (when), we don't get European football? Then again, we beat Brighton then...

    Match Thread Everton v Crystal Palace - Match Report and MotM Poll

    Crystal Palace had no desire, fight, and little technical ability. They looked like a club with 10 of their players not knowing where they'll be playing next season, with nothing to play for, under an aging, uninspiring manager...and we couldn't beat them. I don't think we'll get easier...

    Hmmm, I think that's one thing we're quite good at, not giving away fouls, apart from Holgate who seems to commit a foul every challenge he makes.
