  1. Absolutely. I'm not one of them. I was too young ti drink back then (in the ground any way). More likely to have a bovril if I'm cold than a pint these days, old before my time. Regarding the racism when I was a young teen I used to join in with the Everton are white hello hello. Until I realised it was racist, maybe I'm a little niave or autistic but before I found out it was a race thing I used to just think it was weird we sung 'Everton are white' as opposed to blue and white. I didn't realise the racist connotations.
  2. Any game bar man u I'll be willing to sell if you can't get a ticket and are coming from overseas (if you're a regular poster). Anyone who needs a ticket just tag me with the @ rather than inbox me as I don't always notice the inboxes. I'm potentially working most weekends now so you'd be doing me a favour.
  3. I'm in the top balcony atm and it's mostly families or older guys, there's not many in my age bracket 20-40. When I was a teen I used to sit in the Gladys 10+ years ago and me and my mates were the younger ones at 15, mostly it was just blokes. Can see in that end now and it looks a lot more family friendly. I find, bar the odd few, those who still enjoy a pint are more level headed now. Whereas when I was a teen I remember a lot of fans would see the match as a piss up and get on the aussie whites.
  4. Used to have more of a 'lad' culture, drinking, shouting, people letting of steam, singing, swearing, in general just less inhibited. Whereas now it is more civil, with a lot more children and women at the match. Nothing wrong with that but you'd not expect a kids disco to maintain the same atmosphere as a rave even if it is the same DJs.
  5. He's done a show about being in a cult, The Path, which is okay.
  6. I don't think anyone gave it a wave were I sit. If they gave it to just the family inclosure for the kids to play with I'd have no problem but to give them to a ground mostly full of grown men is beyond a poor idea, its incompetence. Its quiet as there's been a shift in attitude on the pitch, the players and aren't getting stuck in as much as they did under Moyes. On the occasions a player gets stuck in the crowd react just as they always have, albeit not as intense in parts due to a switch in demographics and culture.
  7. Liverpool have an atmosphere in TV thanks to tourists waving their new merchandise, yet the fans who go every week petition for more locals to get a proper atmosphere inside. Whoever made the decision for us made a very poor decision and it should have been. Best atmosphere for me, said it many times in here, was man u 1 nil. There was a crackle in the air before you even got in the ground and I don't think waving some flags will ever replicate the real thing and people at the club should know that. Bad decision and just a massive waste of plastic. They do get some right like what Dunc said about the new season ticket holders but the flags was an awful decision and should never have been okayed.

  9. Feel free to show me some clips of all is playing free flowing football creating chances on a plate to give me optimism. Or explain why the tactics never worked against Newcastle*, Spurs, Palace x2, and Fulham! Only the second defeat from leading 2 nil at half time in our history/364 games.
  10. We were lucky with the timing more than anything. There was nothing in the performances to show we'd improved defensively bar the set pieces, which let's face it would have been hard to maintain conceding as many as we had. Hardly a teething issue either as Silva holds the worse record in the prem for them including his previous clubs. This season we've have less away through the middle but that down to using a footballer who knows how to hold position rather than a rogue ankle biter. Going forward there's very little different. We're still not making high quality chances, and Sigurdssen is still being misused.
  11. Because an echo football journalist is really gonna change my mind đŸ˜‚ The football is monotone, not creating clear chances, and is giving away goals too cheaply from set pieces. We were stronger in the middle with Martinez though, just too slow in the build up.
  12. Just spotted a video of the siren and flag waving before the match. Whoever had that idea needs a word with themselves, literally a plastic atmosphere. We're Everton, we don't need gimmicks.
  13. Because he holds position so well and would have made it harder to get past...
  14. His anonymity isn't a one off. Many a game he went unnoticed last year unless he scored or assisted. If anything DCL makes it easier for Sigurdssen, he's got the legs to press and constantly drags players to create space. Sigurdssen'a biggest flaws are his off and pace though so he doesn't take advantage. I'd move him to the wing to get him more involved or drop him for Iwobi or drop the system altogether and go 442.
