I'm scared right now

I don’t feel scared now. I’m more resigned to relegation happening. The long term outlook is more of a scarier proposition. What adds to the anxiety levels is stuff being leaked from the club. It might seem interesting to hear what’s going on, but it is interspersed with rumours, which in turn is fuelling the fear for fans.

We won’t get promoted straight away because you need to be mentally strong to slog the whole season (and it gets harder the longer you’re there), will be bankrupt with this stadium build, the abuse from the RS will be unbearable, Moshiri will still be in charge.
Do not see one thing even close to a positive with relegation but I get that it’s like a self-preservation thing
I think a lot of what you say is right, but loads of other teams have eventually bounced back from relegation and it won't be the absolute end of us either. It might lead to a very much changed Everton in the future to the one we are used to, but there's not much left of the old one to enjoy now anyway.

But it's not relegation that terrifies me. Something has changed in these last few days and we look like a club on the brink of all out civil war.

I'm kind of used to us being clueless on the pitch and clueless in the boardroom too, but those various highly publicised events that have hit the news since yesterday shows that the fans too really don't know which direction they want to pull in order to achieve success and are just choosing to lash out at anyone they can instead.

Doesn't seem to matter who we appoint, as some faction won't like it and will be prepared to shout loud and long about it too. Goodison has always been full of angry heads who you learn to let just get on with it, but it's getting to the point now where you are scared to voice your support or disdain for anyone or anything for fear of the reaction it might bring from someone near you.

I also think some of those great unifying figures that we have liked to rally round in the past, like Ferguson, Baines, Possibly Cahill if he chooses to become a part again, could fall victim to it too.

We look on the brink of absolute collapse and I haven't got a clue what it will take to stop it now.

True but I think this applies to society as a whole.

Large Samuel to rescue it is then.
Joking you possibly are, but, and as unpopular as this notion is, he would be more suited to save us from the dreaded 'r' word.
Answer me this, has the football we have witnessed all too frequently over the past year been any more entertaining than the dirge Fireman Sam dished up. The answer in the main is a 'no', but at least the bulbous one set us up to be hard to beat. That in itself is a revelation these days.
I could almost welcome some of those boring drawn games with the (very) odd win thrown in. It would certainly help for survival and buy time to get the next permanent manager in. Supposing the dingbats who run this club select the correct manager next time. (Pause for laughter).
As i said, unpopular, but, I would welcome some form of organisation on the pitch to attain requisite points,
Desperate stuff it is, but at 75 I don't think my heart could take another 1994 or 1998, let alone the 1952 debacle.

Puts on bump hat and fire-resistant clothing and changes address.

If rather stick with Ferguson and go down than give any more money to that odious fat lump.

Even if we had him, it's no guarantee of survival (he took West Brom down last season so that myth about him being a survival specialist is well known apart), so imagine tanning the risk on him, swallowing what's left of it pride to rehire a horrible man that we sacked before, pay him loads of money when we sack him again and STILL get relegated...no thankyou.

I can take the drop and I'm not up for paying just any old price to try and avoid it.

I do sort of agree.

We are in genuine crisis.

Everything feels like it's spiralling out of control.

I could spend ages typing a load of words to elaborate on this, but it's genuinely not since 1994 that I've been as concerned as I am right now.

We are in a mess at all levels on and off the pitch.

I think we have to start looking at the positives of possible relegation like this.

I know there are those that believe simply being practical enough to contemplate these things is an act of treachery and that blindly refusing to admit we can get relegated will somehow make it less likely to happen but there ya go
I have no problem admitting there is a possibility of us being relegated, that's the nature of a meritocracy based league, but there is no way I'm going to start even contemplating embracing potential positives of it unless we are already down. The Fat Lady hasn't sung yet

I doubt he'd come back, but I'd definitely have him back. He's a much better candidate for the job at hand than any of the other names being considered. Indeed, the hiring of Sam Allardyce is probably the only managerial appointment that Moshiri has got right. I guess you could add Ancelotti to that as well, as it wasn't Moshiri's fault that Ancelotti did a runner on us.

If Sam is available, then I think we should get him! I don't care how embarrassing it is. It won't be half as embarrassing as going down.

Think it's a bit of a myth that he saves clubs already doomed as was the case with WBA. Think they had about 8 points at the half way stage.

What he is good at is stopping the rot of a team in freefall and making them hard to beat so they don't get dragged in.
