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

    I like Pickford a lot. We could do far worse. I just don't think he commands his area the way we seeother keepers do...

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

    I agree re the cross. But it was only going to go in one area of the box, and Pickford should have been alive to that. He stood rooted to the spot... Arsenal had a keeper years ago, Jens Lehmann I think, who, in those situations, would get out to the cross and take everything in his path on...

    Pickford. As soon as the cross was unleashed, he should have been off his line to collect the ball in HIS 6-yard box. He was still rooted to his goal line as the ball passed him into the net. If your keeper does not command his area, you have problems...

    Norwich Away

    lol ;) But in all seriousness, it's not just what is normally seen as 'roadworks', it's re-routing a major part of the A14 and the impact is massive - has been for a couple of years or so now. I always avoid it when heading back to see family in Liverpool.

    Best route is M62-A1-A17-A47. Avoid the M6-A14-A11 route. Still big roadworks going on on the A14.

    What a bitter and twisted person he is! Pure gold indeed, once it was 2-2!

    Everton rejects £85M Barca bid for Richarlison

    I saw earlier today that Carlo has told Barcelona to not even bother with another bid in the summer. Looks like Carlo is deadly serious about keeping the best talent, telling other clubs to bugger off, and strengthening the squad in the summer for next season. Like his style, telling Barca to...

    Everton rejects £85M Barca bid for Richarlison

    I think a lot will depend on how our Manager shapes things in the summer transfer window. Good buys, a promise of a great future, and we just may be able to hold on to our better players...

    No. Players involved in the action who stray beyond the goal-line remain active for the purposes of the offside law, not inactive.

    Split second reaction dive to what was happening in front of him (i.e. the defence not clearing the ball)...

    Match Thread Everton v Newcastle United - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    I've read replies tonight blaming Pickford for being behind the line for their second goal, and that is indeed the case. However, on seeing the clip, he dived to save a shot that was actually blocked in front of him. His dive took him behind the line, and he had insufficient time to get up AND...

    From Peter Reid's cross. This guy almost single-handedly lifted the club to greatness in the mid-'80s. Oh for someone to be so inspirational on the pitch nowadays...
