I’m not 100% clear on the beef here - GIF game could be stronger - but I’m referring to the poor form under this manager. It started well, and has gone badly south since September.
Sure, the root causes are deeper and more long-lasting than that. I won’t argue that the manager ought not to be the primary target of discontent - but his performance has been poor, too.
We beat these at Anfield without Mina and DCL not so long ago, yet he continues to blame injuries. He’s a man of excuses, and there’s no reasonable excuse for last night.
No beef... just my latenight, tired way of saying it's been poor for decades mate; nobody that's been following us for a good amount of time needs an excuse to criticize now.
The fact that Benitez is the manager is just coincidence and circumstance, AFAIC. Personally, I think him being manager is entirely
due to the fact that we're a yo-yo'ing, upper management shitshow of a club that has, through (what I have to assume is)
its own ignorance or naivety, created the situation it finds itself in yet again
When's the last time you witnessed a genuinely good side, front to back, on the pitch for us... not Europa League or Champions League capable, league-winning capable? You can't sugarcoat it.
Well, I definitively say never in my time
. That's failure
and, considering how long it's been going on for, that's systemic failure
EFC, by its very nature as a sporting entity, has a defined goal (or does it?)
and has now had decades
to implement plans and ways to do and achieve things... regardless of external variables. Who the hell, with professional levels of experience in a field, fails at a known
goal with 30+ years
to get there?
How often have you felt that, due to what you've seen, there was indeed some sort of plan going on or genuine, sustainable progress being made? Something... anything. The stadium? That's nothing to do with Everton as a football club and it sure didn't come about because of some form of recent successes. So, let's see how many straws I can grasp here... well, football is pretty damned unique in the ways it can move itself forward. For one example, what other sport (hell, business
) has a system that enables you to recruit/hire someone damn near out of the womb and spend a large amount of time to enable them to be tailor-made for a position? That's not something insignificant, so... how are we on that? Oh, right.
about this club is or has been consistently good in what it does or has the chance to do, in the sporting realm. I hate saying [Poor language removed] like this because it just digs up the "why bother" feelings... but it's true.
So, yeah...no beef, with you. But this Benitez ranting and raving is a waste of time. If it wasn't, this forum wouldn't be a goldmine of decades-old, recycled <insert same complaint with a different name> rants about boards, coaches and players.
Seriously, Everton... you're a unicorn of a club in many ways but every year you cause to me look closer and closer and it's becoming clearer and clearer.
Point deductions might be on the way for this but that's ok, I won't have to open the recycling bin again for a while.
