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

    Mina brilliant both ends of the pitch. Deserved to keep his legitimate goal. Only slight negative is Pickford’s continuing poor distribution.

    Match Thread Everton v Manchester City - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    For all those wishing we lose just to get at Liverpool. How about this for an alternative wish: we beat City 1-0 and we beat Liverpool 5-0 when they come to visit. That way we play our part in denting Liverpool’s title hopes while strengthening City’s, and at the same time we don’t look petty...

    Yep. Businessmen will do what businessman do. He’s not a football man. If at the game he’s on his phone tracking his share performance. You’ve seen the footage: quickly puts his phone away to join in the celebrations after a goal only because those around him get up on their feet. No interest...

    Half Time "entertainment" at Goodison.

    I’m happy if we can be entertained either side of half time

    Match Thread AFC Bournemouth v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Hmm. Not sure I want to excuse the club's lack of success over the years by insisting we’ve just been unlucky. We’ve been poor for most of those years. We bottled the big games. But we seem to have started to get our act together now. Hopefully that key winning ingredient - a strong mentality...

    Match Thread AFC Bournemouth v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Really? So if we continue to be knocked out of cup competitions in early rounds by the likes of Millwall we should politely clap the team off the pitch cheerfully chanting “hard luck, chaps”? Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. You can be fortunate in that you don’t have to prepare hard...

    No, I’m saying with better finishers bought and starting we’d not have lost the game last night. It’s not like our lack of finishers was a new or unknown problem. The summer activity should have prioritised fixing it.

    But you have to take into account what the coach has to work with, no? Imagine if the guy tasked with upgrading the playing personnel helped the coach put out a fit for purpose team from the start of the season....!

    2019/20 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    If he were with the other lot, he’s exactly the sort of player they would have sold to Bournemouth 2 seasons ago for £25+m and who Bournemouth would have loaned to Hibs last season

    Marcel Brands

    Is right. Brands has critically contributed to our poor start to the season. It is a poor start given the return from the team’s we’ve faced. Last night we lost because we don’t have anyone to put the ball in the net. Kean should’ve been ready to play from the start of the season and that would...

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    Ok, so you’re not dependent on alcohol, you think, but you use it as a crutch to cope with boredom? Alcohol is a depressant. I’m afraid there’s no escaping that brutal reality. It’s countering the effects of your antidepressants so you’ll never feel the full benefit of the medication...

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    Oh mate, I hope your choice of antidepressants doesn’t boil down to which one mixes best with the ale!!! You’ve come off the fluoxetine very sensibly though and I hope you’re feeling better back on the citalopram. There’s a range of other antidepressants you could be prescribed but you don’t...

    Missed the game so can comment only on the result. Nil-nil away to a seasoned premier league side, first day of the season, new players out or only just getting used to our system, early injury to key player disrupting our flow, and a man sent off. That’s a good result in the circumstances...
