    Complaints about VAR..

    The technology is fantastic. I always wanted it and I want it to stay. The problem is the utter incompetence of those making the calls. Lamela v Martial. There’s only one player I’d send off there & that's Lamela for the pathetic play acting. How do these idiots make so many bad calls...

    Team selection........

    I can’t remember ever looking forward to a team selection more! ....and Everton has kicked the optimism out of me enough times to not get carried away, but this time there is solid basis for optimism. Carlo Ancelotti.....Hamez Rodriguez......& 2 midfielders we’ve been crying out for, added to...

    Fitness levels

    Watching the game last night, what really stood out was the incredible fitness levels. Right up to the final whistle, the sharpness off the mark & the sprints were just relentless. Like the German national team, they always seem to have an edge. Juicing??? They will certainly be right on the...

    Time for a big clear out!!!

    That’s the season over. I sincerely hope Usmanov is looking at this & seeing what we see. We’ve got a bunch of wasters bought by 4 managers. Utter dregs who would struggle to get a game at any other EPL club. How do you get rid of massively overpaid wasters though? Sigurdsson...

    Clearly the obvious choice. Why have these utter bunch of muppets not got him yet? Oh, I answered my own question.

    January window

    Well that’s an encouraging start. Can’t we throw in Sneiderlin, Keane & Silva for Free?

    Richard Keys claims Rafa Benitez tried to leave Newcastle United for Everton twice Hmmmm, does Richard Keys have any credibility left??? Would he make something like this up?

    How much more time should Silva be given?

    3 poor displays. That last night was as bad as anything at the depths of the Koeman era. Didn’t look like the players knew what they were supposed to be doing. I fully expect that villa team to be relegated bottom. They were like a pub team. Silva stood there clueless. He should have...

    Season Ticket renewal dates.

    Am I right in thinking the Season Ticket renewal dates are being moved further forward every year? The current renewal date is 4th April, or your seats go up for sale!!! This season not even over. If they carry on at this rate they’ll be doing it before Xmas (get in before OUR season is over).

    Just received a Letter from the club...”foul & abusive language”.

    “We are currently investigating complaints of persistent use of foul & abusive language from supporters located in the area where you have a season card”. They’ve included a phone number & email address to report swearing. This is the top balcony btw. I’ve heard plenty of moronic crap &...

    The buck stops at the top.

    Yet again, we look look to be in complete disarray. We’ve got enough quality players to be easily making that 6th/7th slot ours, but they can’t string 2 passes together. Can’t fault Moshiri for his spending, but he’s making some bad decisions or being badly advised. He threw Koeman together...

    Julian Nagelsmann

    From an IDW, it’s “nagelled on”.

    Are Everton FC known to be a soft touch in the game?

    So if we are to believe what we read, not only have Watford not paid Silva since sacking him, but they will demand money from us if we employ the out-of-work manager... We are apparently still paying Roberto (who should have been backed), even though he’s working for Belgium. We are paying...

    A tail of two businesses

    TALE!!!! Well one who realised the game was now a business 30+ years ago, the other ran like Arkwright’s corner shop. Isn’t it fitting that the player they signed on Jan 1st scores the winner, while our lot apparently did nothing until the window opened. If Moshiri has any sense, he’ll start...

    Parking tomorrow night?

    Normally use the car park on Walton Breck road, but as it’s close to the tinmine, I’m guessing it might be permit holders only for their home games. What about Stanley Park, is that permits for them? Any ideas? Ta
