Thinking about how things are at the close of 2006. Still got a way to go before we're in our rightful place but I thought I'd take a look back to what we were all saying a year ago.
Think if you looked at a league table for the calendar year of 2006 we'd come out as the fifth or sixth best side in the country which given our financial disadvantage over the others is a reasonable achievement. Not overly bothered by the debt level at the club. Individuals, companies and countries operate with debt all the time...if it's properly structured and your turnover/income can service it then it makes sense a lot of the time....not saying new investment isn't needed, just that it's not something to panic over.

Anyway, like I said, last year...

Ive stood by Moyes but its sad to say that he has to go now, enoughs enough hes had his chance and hes failed. No excuses the buck stops with him, Kenwright is another thread alltogether!

'Pat' date='Dec 26 2005

Loosing faith in the current staff even down to the shit tea the tea lady makes (like fookin dishwater)!!!
Sum 1 help us please :(

'Licker' date='Dec 28 2005
I'm not angry, but i am very sad, having to watch the massive club that we are, being reduced to turning out a side, that couldnt beat a sunday league team.
We are being outfought, outrun, outplayed, and the sheer lack of any pride or professionalism running through the whole squad is painfull to watch.

'Zed' date='Dec 29 2005
I dont think we will win and I think Davy will be shown the door soon enough. Time is running out and I dont think he will turn it around, it does pain me to say it, because I like the bloke.

'thebluenose' date='Dec 29 2005
i see it this way.
win: give us a confidence boost
loose: moyes will be sacked

'Mac' date='Jan 12 2006
Late to the party :D .My name is Mac and I live in the north east - wife - 3 kids - life long blue.
Nice to meet you all

'Licker' date='Dec 30 2005
No matter what team he puts out, if we dont win this one the manager must walk.

'mikeo' date='Dec 26 2005
So fucking depressing..don't know what else to say

We're in a hugely better position than we were twelve months back so...

Nil Satis Nisi Optimum

I love being an Evertonian, Manure and Chelski when they lose it's the end of the world, for us it's part of loving our club and this game.

We are a family club, no matter where you are based, no club creates passion and debate like ours. If we don't believe we are moving onwards and upwards, what is the point of being a Blue?.

Mike, I am totally with you and your blind optimism.

Aye, these are better days alright. A year or so who would ever dream we would be in a position of getting 7 points out of the last 9 & scoring 5 goals while keeping a clean sheet? Reminds me of the real old days - yeah OK so I"M old too!
Anybody remember these --
"We'll fight, fight, fight with all our might , for the boys in the Royal Blue jerseys" - those were the days!
"We're going to win the League - ee,aye addio, we're going to win the league"
I've been out of the loop so long - whatever became of West, Parker, Brown. Gabriel, Harris, Fell, Vernon. Young etc
I read about Brian Labone's recent death - are the others still around do you know?
