Maybe the dicks comment was over the top but I still think saha is a waste of space and no one is going to change that opinion so no point in trying.

In terms of me not knowing the inside business working of a football club your right but I don't want to know about internal workings just external recruitment.

OK so everyone is saying be patient and it will happen can you tell me when you guys will stop saying be patient and start saying shit we haven't signed anyone.

Moyes being on holiday should have little baring on signings as I would hope robert elstone would be on the case with moyes targets. Also if moyes has said he wanted to do his business when the window opens it's been open for a month now.

Robert elstone said back in early June that we were working hard and talking to players if that is true does it really take a month to sign someone. Man U signed Owen in 2 days.


You are very thickheaded.
I posted this on your 'I hate saha-thread' a while back: there is no reason for you to hate him at all (injury proneness isn't one of them, seeing half the squad is)
And your obsession about him is becoming quite pathetic (half your posts must be about him)

Maybe the thinking was that we haven't heard from him because he's busy boarding a plane for whatever person.


can still hear from him before he got on maybe? dont think movin the thread to here was right because the point was to discuss why moyes was on the plane and not that it could be a reason for not hearin from him. now what we have is two different topics on one thread :rolleyes:

Agree about the Mod thing though..... bit of a closed ship... I dare not say "click" (clique) again...I got told off last time....

Persecution complex there I think DM....you weren't told off at all, just invited to come up with some evidence...but you didn't respond :) .

What I said was...

Your point is shite. There is no "click."

That suggests exclusivity which there isn't and I challenge you to find any evidence of it. It's not a clique if anyone can join in, which they can.

most of the summer months are arguments due to general frustration of evertonians in these difficult periods.

we treat everybody the same, members and mods have all had posts deleted, threads moved, and tellings off for their actions. none of us are perfect, but we take a lot of pride in this place, and i think your being a bit harsh. this is just my view, and not necessarily the view of us all.
and the comment section is there for a reason, if anyone cares to make a comment or suggestion, we will take it seriously (unless its on the lines of "why dont we have a liverpool section")

Have you read the comments section lately Steve ?
Not exactly what I would call encouraging responses to ideas regarding the edit facility was it . :huh:

http://www.toffeetal...showtopic=17956

And regarding merging , 3 of my last 4 threads have been merged , yet a totally obvious one , such as the example regarding avoiding transfer stress wasn't .
I don't think that's being harsh to be fair mate , but more stating facts . :)
In the Jacko thread , the rules were posted as an objection to an admins post , and the post containing the rules was deleted . Don't the rules apply to admin ?

It's great that you take pride in it , and overall , the forum is run very well , with an excellent membership of very nice people , but sometimes I think all this merging can be a bit restrictive and confusing .

It's your forum , your rules , but we're not children here mate , and when we think something sux , you can normally count on it having at least a degree of validity .

there is a lot of threads on the site, and i know i personally dont see every thread and post on here, as i'm sure i'd lose my job and my girlfriend if i did.
again, as above, we do our best.
im pretty sure the majority of our regular members are happy with the way things are run on here.

edit;
ive just read that thread you linked, i dont see the problem? mike said louis would have to look.
personally i dont see the issue of a line saying edit.

As a long serving none mod member ive never had a problem with any of the mods or the way they run this site, for me merging topics which are on the same lines helps not clogging up all the different parts of the site.

Back on topic, maybe were not hearing from him as he doesnt want to reveal to anyone who where after as that rich twit of a club down the east lancs road will then be intrested.

I hope its as Aaron has said he would rather keep stum about our targets so other clubs dont come in for them or he's to busy to make any public announcements/appearances at this moment in time.

if you have read my last few posts you will see i have said we all make mistakes, and we do our best whether you believe it or not. and we do listen to our members. i pretty sure none of us believe we know it all, but it seems from your comments you do know it all. hence my suggestion of starting your own forum and show us how it should be done.

and again, as previously stated, i think most members are happy.

You're right. It didn't. A thread that Taxi posted about where moyes was and why he was seen on a plane was merged with this one as its a very similar subject area ansd better to keep things tidy. Simple as that. And then all this shite has started.

We aren't hearing from Moyes because he doesn't want to talk to a bunch of over-sensitive pratts on the internet, he wants to sign players. It's not a case of picking them out of a crowd, you actually have to convince them to play for you.

Can we just knock it on the head now guys? I can barely get on here with my new job, there's fuck all rumours so I want a bit of banter but this is "My dad could beat up your dad" shit. It's pointless. I wasted half an hour reading this thread, I can't get that time back <_<

It's the godzilla remake all over again :P

This is why I try and avoid this forum during the transfer window, I - like everyone else - wants to see signings but I think some Everton fans get too worked up about something they can't control. Just be patient and try and forget about the footie, if we haven't signed anyone by the end of July then that's the time to get worried. Moyes isn't going to just sign some players because some overly eager fans want him to, all the moaners/worriers are doing is causing friction and arguments. Just be patient and find something better to do!

As for cliques etc, they definitely did exist in the past (ie criticise one mod and five of them ganged up on you) but these days things seem a lot better I'm happy to say. If there are cliques (which no doubt exist in some form on every forum) then they are at least much more subtle, friendly and less intimidating. That being said, there is still too much abuse on this forum in general, from all parties, but it's been steadily improving over the last couple of years imo so things are going in the right direction.

I sympathise with you taxi but no one wants to have to go through endless pages of threads (like on the Gears of Wars forums etc) so I can understand if the mods move posts to tidy things up. I like the fact that I can come back every few days and still be able to find a topic I was reading before, rather than having to look through 5 pages.

Mark Lawrenson.....

There might not have been any high profile new faces coming through the doors at Goodison Park just yet this summer but Evertonians certainly shouldn’t panic.

It’s been the same at a lot of clubs with more players released than signed but managers are now back in work and players have returned to pre-season training so deals will start to be done and you’ll find that one move will cause a domino affect across the market.

Rest assured, Moyes won’t be sat in his office twiddling his thumbs.

He’ll wait until the time is right and fans should back his judgement as he has a great record of getting fantastic value for money with his signings.

To be fair, I can't blame people for not having faith after what we all went through last summer.
