  1. I think you’ll see that we carved them up until the final third. Coleman had so many chances to get a good ball in ( granted he got that one to Cenk and was saved well ) but generally put in a nothing ball. DCL was off, which is unfortunate for him but that happens. For me another game where we looked defensively strong and competent, never under threat. I can see the foundations Silva is laying and I’m getting back to believing we could be 2/3 players away from being a seriously good team. So yes, I am happy with what’s getting served up because I can see the potential in what we are doing and where we are going.
  2. Might be common sense here but we need to finish as high as possible in the league EVERY season. Could care less about Europa or getting top 4 once. Want see consistency and the term "best of the rest" laid to rest. NSNO!
  3. If only Gana could pick out a forward pass 🤷🏻‍♂️
  4. The lad is a superstar. A marketing dream, humble, down to earth and just loves his football. He has ten years at the top easily. I think he loves playing for us, he is on a serious wedge as he should be. I’m sure in another two years he will want champions league football. It’s up to the club to challenge for that
  5. I don’t think he’s the whipping boy I just think he deserves Critism just like everybody else. As our most expensive player he has needed to do more and create more. On Sunday he did that. Was it the change in formation that allowed him to get into those pockets out wide? Was it the Iwobi and kean? Or maybe was it due to the new players he now knows he’s not guaranteed a game ever week?
  6. If any manager was told you have three years in the job don’t worry I’m sure they would blood younger players for the long term but unfortunately they don’t and can’t do it because if it doesn’t work out in the short term they get sacked. And it starts from people moaning about managers not taking responsibility because they’ve lost pre season friendlies largely consisting of a youth squad. Oh the irony
  7. Arghhh ......... all this talk about the stadium and all I want to really know about is the transport links and in particular the rail opportunity.
  8. Absolutely embarrassing "debate" on here this afternoon, proper Evertonian of some people to actually get up in arms about a player having the audacity to run into the box with the ball and stick it into the back of the net. I can only imagine the the trauma and upset that has been caused by Everton comfortably beating Arsenal, Chelsea and United - fingers crossed we get battered by Palace at the weekend to put people back in a good mood. I suppose by the logic of some at the moment we should also be hurling abuse at Lucas Digne for shamefully volleying a ball from the outside of the box rather than looking for a pass, looking to sell Gylfi for shooting from miles out when it would have been more sensible to wait for a striker making a run and I personally don't want to hear the name Richarlison after a ridiculous bicycle kick that nine times out of ten wouldn't have worked. Unless he's dropped and improves his decision making I won't be setting foot in Goodison Park ever again. I don't post on here much but when I do log in there are some proper weird agendas knocking about - Liverpool and City forums will have rants about how they can win the league, United fans will be debating if Ole is the right man for the job and on ToffeeTalk there's folk booting off about us scoring. To be perfectly honest as the goal panned out in the ground I thought that Theo should have passed but fair does for putting it into the back of the net, when viewing it back on the TV he made the right choice as DCL was under pressure and probably wouldn't have got to the ball. If we ever win the league, I'm convinced we'd have complaints on here that Jagielka didn't hold the trophy high enough - Jesus absolute wept.
  9. We've always been about quality over quantity. Occasional issues aside that stands for me; I don't want 300 guys on answering posts that have been responded to in the few minutes it takes me to answer one. It's more personal, we're all "mates" who sometimes fall out but pretty much always kiss and make up, wouldn't have it any other way.
  10. He was very good today no arguments from me.
  11. Where are you getting your millions from Mike! I want in. Edit: I now see the joke and realise I'm an idiot.
  12. By no means a perfect performance, we had to battle and overcome our own mess ups (much more so than Wolves being an actual threat to us). But we did overcome them and it’s good that we can battle our way through when we need to. Would’ve preferred not to have my heart tested like that but it was important that we showed character.
  13. If our fans have their way it'll be a long time until we play European football again, what with them not wanting EL. Because it's going to be a very long fucking wait for CL.
  14. Wow, they're massively over-paying for a slightly better-than-average CB.
  15. It’ll be interesting to see how he performs playing every week. Good luck to him, I think there’s a player there myself.
  16. Sky reporting that they've ended their interest in him. Also, he arrived back in Liverpool today ;).
  17. So what about all the chances Bernard, Sigurdsson and Richarlison missed? We play four attacking players, they should all be contributing goals, they all deserve to be criticised for being wasteful today.
  18. Be careful what you wish for. We've laid our bed, think we have to commit to Silva until the end of next season at the earliest. We can't keep on changing managers so rapidly.
  19. Love this bloke. A credit to any team he's played for and an absolute gentleman. Won't ever forget about his kindness towards others. We were lucky to have him here.
  20. Love this quote from Brands in the article “I always say I prefer to have the right player a day later than the wrong player a day earlier,"
  21. Pete I have to say that is one of the most ridiculous arguments I've ever read. You are seriously trying to argue that making lots of tackles is a sign of a defect in someone's game... 😂😂Please, just know when to give up!! Guess who won most tackles in 2016 when Leicester won the title? Yes, N'Golo Kante, so shit and clueless positionally he's got two Premier League winners medals and a World Cup one to go with it!! Oh and guess who was second in the tackling list that year... And if the top 6 haven't got anyone in the top tackles list, don't you think that might be because as a team they are better at keeping the ball??
  22. There is a player of real quality in there, Silva thinks so to which is why he has signed a contract extension with us. Plus as others have said he has heart and a willingness to do whatever it takes for the team. He is a natural leader a captain for us and is England u21 skipper. I would rather have him than Morgan any day.
  23. Don’t forget, though, no one signed for us because of the manager.
  24. Difference is Jonjoe has had Tony Hibbert teaching him about composure and connection since he was a kid.
  25. We have a lot of big strong players out there now. Even the best teams won’t find it fun getting knocked around by Mina, Gbamin, Kean, Gomes, Keane etc..
  26. It probably is a generation thing, I did elude to that in my initial post Some younger fans from the Premier League era consider success to be finishing in the top 6, some of them don’t want Europa League either so it’s top four or bust For me success in football terms means having a trophy to show for it. Maybe it’s because the younger fans have never actually experienced a successful Everton side that they feel this way , who knows , I just don’t get it For some of them, the most ‘successful’ Everton side they’ve seen was 2004 when we finished 4th but to me that is not success because we still won fuck all and therefore have no trophy to show for it. Take a look at the clubs honours list and you will not find any mention of that season Success to me is winning trophies, and success breads more success I want us to win every game we play so the apathy by some to the chances of winning a domestic trophy is not something I will ever be able to get my head around These shouts of it being an unwanted distraction are bollocks, a distraction to what?? We haven’t as a club take this competition seriously since the 80’s and we’ve still not got a pot to piss in from any of the other competitions
  27. I agree leave this one and move on, the price being reported is ridiculous.
  28. Best of luck Jags. Great player for us.
  29. I really like Gylfi this season I have seen a side to his game I wasn’t looking at before, I used to think if he hadn’t set up a goal or scored himself he wasn’t doing his job, but when you see the work he gets through you begin to realise what an asset he is to the team.
  30. Shown determination.... had a massive and quite alarming dip. The saying "Will get worse before it gets better" springs to mind. Have to give him huge credit for the turnaround and our ability to give the better sides a game.
  31. Morgan is so frustrating for me. When he’s on his game his such a good player, his first six months with us I thought he was our best player by a very long way. If he doesn’t leave and we can bring in Gomes and keep Gana, picking two from Morgan, Gana, Gomes and Davies isn’t a bad choice to have.
  32. Was game management for me, something we've not been great at in recent times, never gave them a sniff. Makes me optimistic.
  33. If you take Cardiff, Liverpool, Newcastle, Chelsea, West Ham and Arsenal, and say we’ll lose one and draw one, and win four I think we would all be made up with that. I hope this is the start now. I think the next four games are winnable, we could finish with a real statement.
  34. I'll be there too chaps. Managed to get some tickets in the Park End for me and my stepson while getting pissed at my Grandads funeral on Friday. Was 'lucky' enough to be a pall bearer and we carried his coffin in to Z-Cars, so have a feeling I might get wet eyes as Z-Cars blasts out at Goodison!!! Weather forecast is decent, really looking forward to it. Might see some of you there!
  35. If Palfy doesn’t rate him, it bodes well for us. Means he has a very good chance of becoming world class! All we need is PeteO to start criticising him and Bailey to bring pages of stats to prove him a poor player and we’ll have a worldie on our hands!
  36. We made them poor. That's a key point to make. We went at them from the go. We could have been 4 up in 15 minutes. Their keeper kept them in it. We beat them to every ball. We doubled up on their men. We pressed them. And we attacked with a pace I haven't seen from us since about October time. I mean, literally, they would be building up an attack and within a couple of passes we'd be up the other end. If we were more clinical, they'd be dead and buried within 15 minutes. We made them shit. We smashed their confidence to pieces and made them feel like little boys. This isn'tt aimed at you Haf, well it could be depending on what you believe, but we can't keep downgrading our wins as the opposition being pure shite. It's perfectly possible that we play in a way that allows the opposition to do nothing...find no momentum, no rhythm, overthrow their game plan etc etc.
  37. Saved us far more points than he's cost us in his time here imo; he had a daft head on on Saturday and hopefully will be told as much behind closed doors. I wouldn't swap him for anyone we could afford.
  38. The lad is an outstanding player who is excellent on the ball. Being excellent will only get you so far if you don’t have runners and options when you have the ball. A player like him will excel in a team that is full of confidence and playing well, when the rest of the team aren’t doing that it pretty much kills your game. He should have been no where near that game today.
  39. The last thing I would knock about Siggy is his pressing.
  40. Whatever I think of him as a player, there’s no doubts about him as a man.
  41. Excellent again today. Head to head with the best in the world at that role - not much between them today.
  42. He’s much stronger than I thought he was. He’s not easily shrugged off the ball. Has a good burst of speed, without being particularly quick, his passing is lovely, he’s calm and composed on the ball. I love him.
  43. I just don’t understand the stick he gets- he’s not Messi or Ronaldo yet he’s expected to perform like them. He’s a good solid hard working player who plays for the team, gives his all, creates chances and chips inwith his fair share of goals.
  44. It’s another loss but it’s difficult to be too down about it because we played well, and I think we were the better side overall. Unlike last season you can see there’s a plan, a way we want to play. Last season we were just 11 players out on the pitch hoping not to get beat. I can handle these bumps as long as I can see progress, and I can see that progress. Desperately need to be more clinical in front of goal though. Creating chances won’t be the thorn in our side this season in the majority of games.
  45. Easy lads I know talk is cheap but disappointment is expensive emotionally, let’s not think we should be going from eighth to fourth and then we all start thinking we’ve had a shit season if it doesn’t happen, seventh or sixth would be a great improvement that I would be really happy with.
  46. First club ever to score 7,000 top flight goals after today.

  48. Decent players don't need to make tackles though Mark, their positional sense means they know where the ball's going to be before the opposition do; a high tackling stat shows how poor a player you are. If you have a high interception rate as well which would seem to suggest good positional sense it means you're....something or other...and can only pass backwards or to the opposition. High tackle stat + high interception stat = worst player in the shirt. Ever. Simple.
  49. He’s given his all, would wish him well. Scored important goals, worked his ass off whenever called up despite appalling treatment and always seemed proud to wear the shirt.
