  1. Maybe start with this one! ☝🏼
  2. Yep - makes little sense going with the early games unless it fits an agenda or gives you the answer you want. Surely we saw ‘Silva’s Everton’ towards the end of the season. I think ‘agenda free’ analysis of that period may be warmly received.
  3. Why the first 11 and not the last 11 when Silva’s philosophy is more imbedded?
  4. I agree - he’ll get paid millions and millions there. Thought he was great a couple of years ago but he hasn’t done a lot since going back to Atletico - is the fitness/ hunger still there? All points to China IMO.
  5. I disagree - we don’t need a target man as such in my opinion. I’d much prefer Simeone (Diego’s son) from what I’ve seen. Someone who can do the hold-up parts and be a focal point for our attacks but won’t hinder our pressing game. Maxi Gomes seems more in the mould of an out and out target man.
  6. Special mentions for John Spencer, Tobias Linderof, Anthony Gardner, Gareth Farrelly (although he did one thing right!), Stuart Barlow, Mitch Ward and any other useless being to pull on the shirt!
  7. 1. Steve Simonsen - we spent loads on him at the time. 2. Tony Thomas 3. John O’Kane 4. Per Kroldrup 5. Slaven Bilic - more for the disappointment as he was a class centre back - just an absolute waste of space for us! 6. Claus Thomsen (c) - shite! 7. John Oster 8. Danny Williamson 9. Brett Angel 10. Michael Branch 11. Idan Tal
  8. This is a classic example of an agent getting his client the best deal. Toss up between Valencia and West Ham - I think our name has been conveniently thrown into the mix to pressurise one of the clubs actually in for him.
  9. Excellent signing for Leicester - I really rate Perez.
  10. Is the Premier League the pinnacle or is it just the place where players will get the highest wages? Due to the money, we’ve probably got the most ‘depth’. Obviously the 2019 European finals would suggest dominance with all 4 being English - will be interesting to see if this continues. The Champions League is the pinnacle so I’d say the likes Juve, PSG, Bayern, Real, Atletico, Barca, etc are more attractive than players just choosing the Premier League.
  11. Wasn’t there a stat either 17/18 or 18/19 that Palace lost every game Zaha didn’t play? A class player who is on a completely different level to the Palace Bolasie but, due to his importance to them, he’d cost far more than he’s worth. He’s priceless to them hence they’ll ask for near on £100m - surely no team will pay near that so I expect he’ll stay for at least another season.
  12. @FourthOfficial_ is the decent account. Always been consistent but posts much less frequently nowadays.
  13. Look at his photo and background - it’s clearly someone pretending to be a connected person. I always block when I’m certain that it’s a jarg account- pretty sure it was sometime last summer although may have been even before that. Accounts like this put their neck out on popular rumours and add what’s rumoured as fact and many believe them... pretty sure this one had me going for a while.
  14. The Charles Stevenson account is a blag account. I’ve had it on block.
  15. This may be one to look out for then... https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2019/06/09/report-everton-to-offer-lewis-dobbin-new-deal-amid-serious-inter/
  16. I had never heard of him so read a couple of articles - sounds an absolute liability. Yellow or red card most games... 5”10 is very short for a centre back in a back 2.
  17. Pete - why do you call Calvert-Lewin a youngster but not Richarlison, who is younger than Calvert-Lewin?
  18. Been a great signing - top player!
