    Nine years ago today

    Since we last won a derby, an absolutely shocking statistic. I remember growing up in the 70's when we didn't win one for 7 years, and was there the day Andy King stopped the rot, in an era when Liverpool had won everything for years. I genuinely can't see where the next one is coming from...

    Stuttering penalty run ups

    Am I imagining it? But I'm sure broken, stuttering run ups were deemed unsportsmanlike several years ago, and rules were put in place to stop them. Not just yesterday, but loads of players seem to do this now. Were the rule changes scrapped or am I just making it up?

    Everton Fans Panel

    I've just aired my views in response to a club survey. I found responding to questions like 'how do you feel the current management team are doing to bring success to the club?' quite liberating. Get your fume in peeps.

    We miss Gareth Barry.

    We should have moved heaven and earth to keep him. He still has more guile and positional discipline than any of our midfield. Just the player our current position requires. Of all the 30+ year old players we could and should have binned in the summer, we let the only one with any quality go.

    Match Thread Everton v Stoke City . Saturday 12/08/2017. 15.00

    In the lack of a match thread, apparently our league campaign kicks off tomorrow, but seems to have been forgotten due to a spate of floods caused by excessive seasonal bedwetting. I'll be there cheering on the players we actually have. COYB! PS 3-1

    How did you see the game as a kid

    Just had my memory jogged reading the 'old stadiuns' thread. If you were lucky enough to get to the game when you were still in short kecks. How did you get the best view amongst all the big people? I got my dad to knock up a wooden box which I used to carry to the ground, just about managing to...

    Severely Obstructed View Seats

    In T5 top balcony. Only place I could get two tickets together for the Stoke game. Just how bad is the view up there, I've heard you can't see the park end goal!

    Robbie Savage table prediction.

    I've just been reading his in depth analysis for how the 'top six' will finish the season. He's calculated that Arsenal will finish 6th on 65 pts. Given that he's predicted Chelsea will lose at Goodison and Arsenal will lose to us on the last day, that already puts us on 60 pts, needing just 5...

    Season 2016/17 Outrageous Forecasts

    While we're all bored waiting for signings, try forecasting something random for this season. I'll start with - Evertons goal of the season will be scored by Ross Barkley against the darkness, a 30 yarder curled into the top corner at the street end, following a neat one two with Oxlade...

    Synthetic Pitches Though

    So what's the rule on these in the top flight, are they still banned? I assume we have a synthetic practice pitch because the lads looked really at home there tonight. First time passes all over the show. It will be interesting to see if they can transfer that pace to grass on Sunday.

    Is John Stones ready to be Evertons captain?

    I know there is already a John Stones thread but I feel this is merited on it's own, but merge if not. Hear me out before you start saying he's too young or not ready. Everything this lad does oozes class, he's certainly not afraid to voice his opinion on the pitch either, and for me it's no...

    New Govenor of the Bank of England is a blue

    According to the Telegraph, Mark Carney the new govenor of the bank of england is an evertonian. Just thought I'd share this stunning news with those of you looking for the next saviour. Perhaps he could put Kenwrights head on the front of a tenner as a form of sponsorship. Apologies if its...
