...the Redshites over here are having a field day with the recent demise of our great club....


...steady on Oz lad, to paraphrase Mark Twain, "The reports of our death are greatly exaggerated!"

We have a song over here, "We don't care what the red shite say."

Enjoying be a blue atm. Definitely yes, but its the same old pervert way like always before new season. Hoping for the best, scaring the worst. After this improvement what Mr.Moyes and staff members and lads have done last couple of season, the hopes get higher, of course. Lacking in transfer will make me worry, scary and worry again. We definitely have excellent starting 11, but we need to have it fit and thats the problem atm. Last few weeks has been a life of agony, thinking about possible tranfers at work and hurrying to home to refresh webpages for any news about signings and yes it has been VERY frustrating, But we will see much more at saturday.

Anyway, enyoing to be a blue even atm? Definitely yes.

Well said. I am honestly enjoying being a blue at the moment, I think as soon as the first few games are out of the way everyone will settle down and realise it wont be as bad as people have been imagining :) .

Still would feel a lot better about being a blue if we made a signing, but hey, Que Sera.

Alrice MikeO, i know the song well mate...I am a blue nose scouser through and through...and i never said that i let what them Redshite twats have had to say get to me, i was just saying they were having a field day with our current situation!

I have thick skin and a broad shoulders having been a blue for life so it takes a bit more than them Norse descended band-wagon jumping bastards to get this blue nose worried!

Who knows maybe there will be a few new players paraded before the match against Blackburn or at half time? ;)

Being a blue ensures you keep your feet on the ground and your eyes focused unlike others who have their heads up their asses and believe anything a certain Spaniard tells them. Born a blue and I'll die a blue with all flags flying.

I always enjoy being a blue with along with that enjoyment i find myself frustrated with the clubs lack inability to build and improve our situation which, in turn, lessens the enjoyment.

It's fine balancing act for us blues that i'm guessing none of us would change.
Never a dull day!!!

Could not imagine living my life supporting another team. I love the massive rollercoaster that we all ride year after year. We might come out bruised at the end of it but tell me you haven't loved it.

We support a truly special club lads.

we all moan about no-body coming in but we will all be there hearts in our mouths come 3pm sat. i am and always will be enjoying being a blue regardless of who comes in. but i do really feel like we will struggle this year with the current crop in at the mo a few injury's and where down to about 8 senior players, its a grey day, and to top it all off the efc site hasn't changed since yesterday dinner time. what are they waiting for?? i knew all this crap with the new stadium would have some outcome on the in's this summer so all you who sat there fighting with keioc well done sit down and pat yourself on the back. i dont really care if you all want to have a go at me.

What I do when I'm feeling particularly pessimistic is take a look at the bookies odds.

These are the people whose job it is (and whose livelihood depends on) looking totally objectively at the situation and deciding who is going to do what over the season. They're not affected by emotional reactions but purely by the bottom line.

They all still have us roughly on a par with Villa behind only Spurs in the "without the top four" odds, but unanimously ahead of City, Pompey and the rest.

In the UEFA Cup we're behind only Milan, Spurs, Valencia and Seville (and any dropping Champs league club) but well ahead of the likes of Ajax, Deportivo, Hamburg, Sampdoria, Benfica & Feyenoord etc etc.

Doesn't look half so bad when you look at it like that imo.
Makes me feel better anyway :) .

It's a good post by Mike and a good strategy.

The fact we are only behind a few (very strong) clubs in UEFA Cup is partly a reflection of the power/money of the Prem and the fact that English bookies offer shorter odds on our clubs as they know that people will back with heart (bookies are risk managers in essence) but it is undoubtedly encouraging and should encourage all to keep perspective.

Players will arrive.
