    Talking about our Tactics

    It looks as though the Premier League clubs are more enthusiastic about data than fans. 'Big Data is the future of football, Sevilla's sporting director Monchi said in 2019. 'Lately, more than scouts, we have started looking for engineers, mathematicians, physicists and experts in statistics or...

    Pele at Goodison

    I saw nearly all those games at Goodison - utterly magical performances from Bene, Albert, Eusebio, North Korea in the first half to go three up against Portiugal and lose 5-3 to Portugal in the second half.

    Everton Summer transfers 2021

    I still have a copy of The Boys' Book of Soccer, for 1957 (published in London 1956) a compilation of stories of fact and fiction with features, on amongst other, Stanley Matthews, Sam Bartram, (Charlton goalkeeper and penalty taker - until he missed one). Soccer was a term quite widely used...

    New Everton Stadium Discussion

    I've just spotted this on the Peel Waters website: Everton has confirmed it will take possession of the Bramley-Moore Dock site, part of Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters, on Monday 26 July - with contractors Laing O’Rourke immediately beginning the first phase of the project on that date as part of...

    League Position

    7th. A cup would be nice but I think City will be trying to collect them all again.

    Transfer Rumour Zaha with poll

    Zaha is a very good player but not worth the £100m that I think Moshiri is willing to pay to make a statement.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Clearly, Palace are annoyed that the club ignored the £80m price and may have offered players rather than cash upfront. (And I hope this isn't because of a desire of Moshiri to make a statement otherwise, there might be a £100m bid.)

    2018/19 Marco Silva - New Poll Added

    Yes! Absolutely. We need good runs in the Europa League to improve our poor European Coefficient which we share with the likes of West Ham, Burnley, Southampton and the like. Look in the mid eighties at

    New Everton Stadium Discussion

    I like both the brick base and the modern top for the stands but I am not keen on the combination of the Victorian and modern. Still, a new stadium ... not to be sniffed at! (Also, I am not mobile enough to get there, so if those who can go are happy, then fine.)

    @Mrtallywacker . That was not what @radiostar posted. I thought that it was courteous to indicate when another's post was edited. Or am I old-fashioned?

    AS Monaco v Everton (Friday 19 July 17:00)

    Yes! And even worse for my tenuous grasp of reality, we are wrong about Hugh, Pugh etc. According to Wiki, they are the Pugh twins, so it's Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew... Good win last night. Builds confidence.

    Well, since it would involve a public inquiry, and a possible appeal, I have no idea. Sorry.

    Is it dodgy, people ask. Well, I can't judge that but USM Holdings has three people on the board: Usmanov, Streshinsky and Moshiri who is the Chair of the Board. Usmanov has been moving companies out of the reach...

    @Davideeyore I agree about the Lucas Oil Stadium, but in blue engineering brick!
