    I was born and raised there, but I've lived in Georgia for about 10 years now. My family still lives there, though. But I was born an Alabama football fan, and that doesn't change wherever I live. Haha You?

    Perhaps. Or maybe even stick Seamus in as a RCB on occasion, depending on what happens with Mina's health, with Tarkowski moving to the middle.

    Match Thread Everton v Dynamo Kyiv Friday 29 July 7.45pm KO.

    For me, we just don't have enough quality center backs to play with three no matter how bad our midfield looks. I think some of our midfield issues could be mitigated by just having more technical players wherever on the pitch we can squeeze them in and try to make it up with numbers. We just...

    Yeah, I agree. Should have reversed these two.

    2022/2023 Kit Release

    I mean, it looks like a decent training kit, but I'd say it's rather questionable as an actual game kit.

    Everton Pre-Season (Tours) 2022/23 Thread

    Tarkowski is going to be class for us. Myko looked good too, but I'm wondering if we really are signing Cornet, and we really are going to play this formation, do we move Myko to LCB and play Cornet was a LWB? Myko is a solid defender, and that would finally give us a left-footed CB while...

    Everton Pre-Season (Tours) 2022/23 Thread

    Like what I see from Nkounkou going forward, but he needs to make massive improvements defensively or perhaps just become a winger full-time. Also, if we're going to play this formation with Dele on the field, he should be in Gray's spot next to Dom and either Gordon or Iwobi should be where...

    2021/22 Richarlison

    Yeah, that's what I thought too. Without speaking Portuguese, we're just relying on translations, but the interviewer himself seemed to read Richy's comments in the opposite way to what we all thought here earlier today. And having watched the whole clip in context, that's how I saw it too. It...

    Match Thread Watford v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    On the bright side, Leeds seems to be falling apart a little more each game. Red card again? At the rate they're going, not sure they even pick up a point in their last two - probably not more than 2 or so at least.

    Match Thread Watford v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Best I can make of it is that Frank knew the team was gassed after the last two performances and also knew that historically the Keane - Holgate pairing is a recipe for disaster - especially away from Goodison, so he mostly just set up to make sure that at least we didn't lose. Why 5 at the back...

    Relegation

    Put me down as one who doesn't think Burnley gets 6 from Villa. As many have pointed out, Villa is not so far ahead that they can just not show up and not worry about it. Even given Burnley's run of form, I don't think they get more than 4 from Villa, if even that. If they get nothing from...

    Relegation

    For me the two most important games to watch now are Leeds-Palace tomorrow and us v. Chelsea next week. If Palace wins, then Leeds have to start looking over their shoulder at us and Burnley. And if we play with the same fight we've shown lately (results not always withstanding), I think we can...

    Match Thread Liverpool v Everton : Sunday 24th April 2022 : Kick Off 4.30pm

    I'm hard pressed to think of a more over-hyped player than Thiago. Every game of theirs I'm unfortunate enough to watch, all I hear from the commentators - American or English - is how brilliant he is, but he's just not. He's a good player, but not remotely world-class, and they bang on about...

    Match Thread Liverpool v Everton : Sunday 24th April 2022 : Kick Off 4.30pm

    Yeah, spot on. That's basically what I meant. As tempting as it is to believe that the refs / EPL are out to get Everton specifically, I think it's just much more likely that they're simply doing whatever they can to keep it close at the top for the good of "entertainment," and we are easy to...

    Match Thread Liverpool v Everton : Sunday 24th April 2022 : Kick Off 4.30pm

    Yeah, it's clear that the few teams at the top have different rules than the rest of us - most especially when they're at home. It's pretty undeniable now, for anyone that watches a lot of the games around the league.

    Match Thread Liverpool v Everton : Sunday 24th April 2022 : Kick Off 4.30pm

    I don't think it's so much a conspiracy to send us down as it is a very clear goal from the Premier League to have a two-horse title race as long as possible for the media / TV hype. We've just had the very unfortunate luck to find ourselves in the middle of it against the two teams involved in...

    Still think it's too early to give up hope, but it certainly looks like some clarity is about to get introduced very quickly. If we go into the Chelsea game on May 1st somehow still even or ahead of Burnley (awaiting results of the derby + Burnley v. Wolves & Watford), then I think we're in...
