    New lad from sunderland signed!

    I reckon he's been signed so someone in the squad can understand Pickers and his Mackem accent..

    2021/22 Fabian Delph

    Sake .... saw this thread and thought I'd pop in to drop a facetious question about him being injured again only to find that absolute disaster IS injured. If I were him I'd be shamed into handing my salary back by now.

    Talking about our Tactics

    Its down to reputation and luck. Manage a good team and you look a good manager then get selected for a better team - then up goes your reputation. Come to Everton as one of the world's 'best managers' and get exposed, so shuffle off to Real Madrid at the first opportunity to protect your...

    2021/22 Jordan Pickford

    Its so they can sound insightful and knowledgeable when it happens. Tactic - carpet bomb the squad with criticisms. Wait for one to inevitably make a mistake. Say I told you so. Sit back with the smug grin of Mrs Doyle when she eventuall correctly guessed the name of Fr Tod Unctuous. Its just...

    Could be 6 or more Gs depending on how many Garys you have in the team.

    Talking about our Tactics

    Football is a simple game. I used to tell my team inspirational things like "do more betterer than them" and "put ball in t' onion net ffs" and "pain is our friend " and "come on." Generally did the job. For tough games I'd express the importance of equalising before they score.

    Is that the injury he picked up, invisible to the media, the day that VD got killed in the same match?

    2021/22 James Rodriguez

    Its the first thing you're taught in teacher training* - go into see a class for the first time, send someone out in the first five minutes. Doesn't matter what for, it just sets the tone and establishes you necessarily as top dog. Then quickly identify the vocal ones (you can normally do this...

    Salary Cap / Luxury Tax

    I know what you mean. Everton is a class A drug you just can't shake. If football were invented today the government wouldn't allow it.

    Salary Cap / Luxury Tax

    Cap salary at 30k a year for the privilege of playing a hobby, charge a fiver at the gate and have 1 match a week chosen from the 3pm kickoff to show on TV and we might just get an interesting sport back.

    What's your verdict on Marcel Brands?

    My main disappointment is that he hasn't unearthed a young gem from elsewhere on the planet - thats what I'd expect his key role to be . Perhaps his hands have been tied satisfying a conveyor belt of managers, bad contracts and by ffp.

    Everton women’s team affected our spending

    Its equality innit. I mean they have to be treated the same since they earn the same in gate money and sponsorship. Have you learned nothing from Megan Rapinho? Gotta be woke. I've got a stash of used engine oil in my garage so I demand the same income as Sheik Mansur. :Blink: lol

    2021/22 James Rodriguez

    So many football fans seem incapable of seeing the apparently invisible football skill - speed of thought. Because of having a brain and vision, knowing where you're going to play the ball before you receive it. To my eyes even managers struggle with this.
