    Professor Ancelotti !💙💙 And I particularly like this quote "A strong part of my game is marking and the desire going in to win absolutely every ball," he explained. "I believe with my desire I can put in really good performances to win the fans over and I hope to win things as well. There will be a tremendous amount of dedication from me, a lot of dedication – a lot

    If you’re a midfielder at Everton, you need to seriously step up you’re game if you want to play again. Not a single one of them will get a look in if they aren’t at least twice as good as they were last season. The standard has moved, time to improve or get out of the way.

  5. Well didn't expect this. Went as well as was possible apparently. 7.5 hours surgery, zero tongue removed (which should mean normal eating possible in time), no ICU just high dependency and now safely on ward, being woken more than once an hour for obs, drips but not a problem floating in and out of consciousness. Quite pleasant in fact, must be the drugs😂. Not being able to speak feels a bit odd, I keep forgetting and attempting but nothing comes out, but no pain at all; again maybe the drugs. Walk in the park so far, I imagine trials to come but so far so good 👍. Bit of internal bleedin

  6. Mike, I've only just seen that you've unfortunately had to update this thread. I know there's nothing I can say really. Today is the anniversary of my Dad's death 3 years ago & I thought I was okay but this has really upset me! (Nothing like making it about me, eh?). As lot's of others have said, and I'm sure you have many people around you in the real world, but if you do need anything I'm not too far away in London, so don't hesitate... I know he doesn't know me, but please tell Josh I'm thinking of him - with his mum gone & the worry he will have for his dad he must be hav

    Carlo Ancelotti

    Perhaps it has been mentioned elsewhere but someone expanded on Allan’s characterization of Ancelotti as “professor” to make it “Professor Ancelotti and the School of Science”. It sounds like a lost Harry Potter volume but if there is any chance we can make it a thing I think we should.

  12. I remember when my Dad first took me to Goodison Park. We sat in the lower bullens against Leeds United, I was so excited. I didn’t stay focused for more of the game, I remember reading all the advertisements around the ground but I was only little and got bored. The one thing I do remember from the day was walking through the cemetery, just as you come over the hill and the stands rise out of the ground with all that blue framework, my Dad says to me “I hope we make a good profit this year lad”.

  14. IMO, when you haven't won anything for 25 years you don't get to pick and choose which cups are a waste of time. Rotate of course, but the strongest possible side for me in every single round to ensure that we get through and have something to lift at the end of the season. Winning breeds winning, it becomes a habit.

  15. I'm going to ask you all to indulge me a little bit here because I got very drunk watching this because it was so good, and then I carried on drinking until 4am and got even more drunk. In the first 10-15 minutes of the game I'd developed a hard on that went nowhere the longer the game on. Why? Because I was watching us keep hold of the ball, move it around confidently and with purpose. The midfield looked unbelievably comfortable with the ball, like animals in their natural habitat doing what they do best. We got caught out a couple of times on the counter and Pickford was called upon to

    Spotlight will be off Kean a bit this season, with our big signings this summer. I think there was far to much expectations on him from fans last season - he was a teenager coming to a new country. I was only expected him to be blooded as a substitute in games we where playing well and had effectively already won - get on for the last 20mins, enjoy it with no pressure type of games. Unfortunately, don't think we had many/any games where you could effectively 'blood' younger player. Instead, it was more often than not being put on the the pitch in situations where we needed a goal or where the

    I understand the sentiment but flaky supporters buy kits too. If we want to grow into a club that can compete with the biggest fish expanding our fan base is a big part of it. Exposure matters. I only started following Everton 6 years ago myself and that was because I loved Tim Howard. Even if some "supporters" jump ship when a guy like James leaves there will be a percentage that fall in love with the club as I did.

  19. Have the people who are turning their noses up at Doucoure completely erased the football we endured since the restart last season from their memories? He has everything in his locker that we have been missing and why are people getting fixated with 4-4-2? Carlo has been on record several times to say he doesn’t want us to have one identity, having these three in improves us immeasurably and allows Carlo to tweak his formation/tactics to suit the opposition If that pushes out any of the current ‘midfielders’ in the squad the as far as I’m concerned that’s an added bonus

    I wanted the midfield sorted and was willing to sacrifice sorting any other position, and it looks like our midfield is getting a serious upgrade which makes me extremely happy.

    Allan

    Currently half way through his autobiography he co-wrote called Quiet Leadership. It has snippets of what players said about him when interviewed for the book. Ronaldo was very fond of him and Zlatan says he's the best manager he's ever worked with, at one stage carlo says to him 'so where are you going next in your career' and Zlatan replies 'I will go wherever you go, apart from Russia!' It just shows the influence he seems to have on players. They want to work for him. He runs the club like a family and everyone seems to love him.

    Latest report (i know to take any report with a pich of salt!!) is that he is willing to take a pay cut to get a help facilitate a move to Eveeton. Now if that is true it is a massive difference to some of maybe our more questionable recent signings. He is not coming here to get that one massive final contract, he is coming here based on a different motivation. If it is true that he would be willing to take even just a small paycut, it is still a significant and meaningful gesture and to me a early good sign. Straight away gets fans on his side more than for a player who you know has come beca

  23. Mike: Through your work with the online cancer support community, you've been a beacon of hope to many thousands of people - each feeling vulnerable, afraid, and helpless. Already, you've achieved more in your lifetime than I could ever hope to achieve in mine. That doesn't make things any easier, for sure, but thank you for the impact you've had on others over the last several years and for the even greater impact you're going to have over the next several years. You may not feel like an inspiration, but feelings often don't reflect reality. It's an absolute privilege to know you.

  24. Hi Guys, Spurs fan in peace – I write for a website spursforlife and just wanted to give a bit of opposition insight for the weekend ahead. If the fixture was played last weekend, I’d be a lot more confident but now that you’ve got three new midfielders to call upon, that confidence has dissipated slightly and I think it will be a much closer encounter than when we met at the tail end of last season. I think its fair to say both managers have had their “bedding in period” and now it is time to show what both Mourinho and Ancelotti can really do as the captains of their respective shi

  25. As impressed as I am with the quality of the signings, I'm equally if not more impressed by the contracts. It seems like for far far too long it was 'you're a new signing here's a 5 yr deal'. Never understood that the club takes on all of the risk. Allan is 29 and his three year deal takes him to 32. James is 29 and his 2 year deal with an option takes him to 31/32. Doucoure is 27 and his 3 year deal with an option takes him to 30/31. If it's working out great sign him up to an extension and if it's not you don't get stuck with Martina/Niasse/Gylfi/Bolasie/Besic/Tosun.

    There is no doubt in my mind that he has an exceptional talent we’ve all witnessed it, his first Derby will stick out for me as master class in midfield he was the best player on the pitch, sadly we haven’t been getting that anymore before or after the injury. As a person I love him, he’s a genuinely humble caring human being, As a footballer I respect him, but I also worry for him because we are bringing in some huge talent in the midfield, some are concerned about his mentality I hope he comes out fighting for his place and gives Ancelotti a dilemma on his starting eleven, because he has

  32. You make it sound as if it the league OR league cup and we simply can't try and do well in both. We are a big enough club with a big enough squad to be competative in both and then the FA cup in the New Year. Cup runs are more likley to have a positive affect on league form. I don't thing winning round after round and progressing in any domestic cup competition harms league form, winning breads winning. Rounds of league cup, don't lead to fixture list congestion. Especially for clubs who don't have any european football. If anything its good to have games that allow fring player to get o

  34. Yes the financial return is great. But I don't watch and follow Everton in the hope that we'll make loads of money, I watch with a hope that I'll see us win trophies. Yes the financial return of top 4 and a run in the champions league is lucrative and will ultimately benefit you long term but I wouldn't sniff at winning the FA or League cup. Also I believe that having the winning mentality breeds more success, going into every game with a good intent to win. City may change plenty of players but they also put out a strong team including many players from the previous/following

    I don't believe any of this - at 19 years old, Kean wasn't purchased last season to make any sort of immediate impact at the club. He is in a new league (probably the toughest there is) and new country. Do you give up on a signing like this after 12 months? - no chance. Anybody talking of him as 'flop' or 'not the player we hoped' doesn't have a clue - some fooking lazy (and useless) journalism if you ask me.

You beat it once and will do so again, life can throw up unimaginable challenges but you have a network of people around you who are there to support you, both in the real world and on this forum. If you need anything from me - please give me a shout. Take each day as it comes, we're just names on a computer screen but are very much by your side. Sorry to hear about your wife - my sincere condolences. Those we love never leave us.

    Michael Keane

    Keane has been one of our stand out players over the last 3 seasons, our best defender and the country’s. Has it all, strong, pace and can pass like a midfielder. And his goal return of 10 a season is amazing for a centre back. And at the age of 21 will only develop further. He is also a supporter of Catalunyan devolution. Would fit perfectly at Barca, provided they pay a premium for him. (Hoping the Barca chairman will read this thread).
