    2018/19 Jordan Pickford

    He needs competition. A goalkeeper of roughly the same age, and someone that would not be here just to warm the bench. We should go out and buy Jack Butland.

    What is the solution to this mess?

    This. Why do some have almost blind faith in a guy, that hasn't really achieved anything? I seriously don't get how every aspect of this club is being scrutinized - The Board, the Manager, the coaching staff and the players - but somehow Brands is absolved of all blame. Why is he cast in the...

    How fickle are our fans ?

    I'm not saying he won't sort it out. I am just puzzled as to why a lot of people are so sure that he will. We haven't got any better than we were this time last year. The players and Silva are taking the flak for that - and rightly so. Why is Brands not being blamed? He is part of it.

    How fickle are our fans ?

    I really don't get this Marcel Brands thing. Am I missing something here? I'll be honest - I'd never heard of the guy until he signed on with us as DoF. I see nothing in his resume that suggests he is going to make everything fall into place. I am also pretty astounded that he now has a...

    2018/19 Marco Silva

    Wasn't that the one game that Collina came out of retirement for? It was also weird that our game kicked off an hour after the other English clubs had played. Even getting Villareal was a bit weird - the up and coming side from Spain, with up coming manager Manuel Pellegrini at the helm. It...

    2018/19 Marco Silva

    We had a few fifth place finishes with Moyes (not to mention an actual fourth place finish). I remember the first season under Martinez as failure. We should have finished fourth, and we blew it. We murdered Arsenal 3-0 at Goodison, and drew 1-1 at their place, yet somehow managed to finish...

    2018/19 Marco Silva

    We blew it in that first season. We lost three of our last five games (two of which should have been a stroll), which bascally cost us a Champions League spot. We also got murdered 4-0 at Anfield, lost at home to Sunderland, and lost 4-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-final. Fifth with 72...

    A question to the most of the fans; Do you really think bringing a new manager would solve our problems?

    Stupid money for average players, huge pay outs to terrible managers, and allegedly building a new stadium. Add a Russian oligarch into the mix, and the dots start to join up. Does anybody watch Ozarks? We don’t need a new manager, we need Jason Bateman.

    2018/19 Marco Silva

    I think my point is that we never go out and find a manager that isn't already in the headlines. Koeman was getting all the plaudits at Southampton. I'll be honest, I thought he was a good appointment (at the time). We just seem to appoint the obvious managers. Koeman - Allardyce - Silva...

    2018/19 Marco Silva

    I'm honestly beginning to think that under the Moshiri regime, this club is doomed. His habit of picking 'Flavour of the Month' managers, is getting to be a bit concerning. I have never, in my life, known anything like this. We are on our fourth manager, and have spent stupid money. And all...

    Shocking Fact

    Only 14 English clubs have won anything, since the start of the Premier League. We are one of them. Only 8 of those clubs are still in the premier league.

    Fiver on Everton 1-0 with Ashley Williams scoring - 200-1. Got to be worth a punt! (It won't happen, but at 0-0, I can dream)

    2017/18 Jordan Pickford

    I think it a little odd that when he played for England against Germany, he was called into action quite a few times. Yet when England played Brazil with Hart in goal, Hart had a fairly quiet game. I am beginning to wonder if some of our problems, may be something to do with Pickford not...

    Match Thread Olympique Lyonnaise v Everton

    Wow! For a start, I didn't make the original comment. Also, nobody said the players didn't care, what was actually said, was that the Lyon players appeared to care more - this is what the pictures showed. Now if you compare those pictures tonight, to the ones when Coleman broke his leg...
