  1. Really appreciate it Gwlad. It’s incredible the work they are doing at the moment. I will be sure to show her this as she needs a boost at the moment. Obviously I can’t say too much, but when your life long partner comes back from work each day in tears, and there’s absolutely nothing you can do to help, it’s tough to watch. I thought it was tough being an Everton supporter haha.
  2. We’ve stopped it for the time being. They are struggling to understand at the moment and keep asking when we’re playing again 🙁 Im an emotional wreck over this haha.
  3. Is this now our longest unbeaten period for a good few seasons?
  4. Missus is a nurse mate. Have to be more careful than most. But missing footy so much. She was sick to death of me moping around on the first Saturday haha.
  5. This discussion started with comments about him not being worth 90m. And like usual, many of us have turned the argument into something else haha. Now he’s not good enough. everyone doesn’t need to believe he is top class.
  6. I was watching thinking the same.
  7. We absolutely have to look for a new right back. Teams are actually targeting us there now. We also have to have either a pacy box to box midfielder, or a Gana type that can read the midfield. At the moment we are done if anyone hits us with pace, or plays a ball through the middle of the park.
  8. Don’t think we can blame the manager until he has managed to mould his own team shape and players.
  9. Hate to admit it, but my hope for him dies each time he plays. Really wanted him to become great.
  10. Think PeteO broke into Palfys account again.
  11. You’ve been starting to make sense recently... then you go and ruin it all haha.
  12. He was rubbish today. Not sure if him and Mason signing a deal made some difference, but they were both terrible today. Saying that, did the rest of the team sign contracts as well!
  13. He actually made a very good goal saving tackle today. It’s just having him on the pitch means teams start 1-0 up. When you hear the commentators say ‘He battles, tries, and is always willing, it’s just when he’s on the ball it lets him down’ ... then you know there’s an issue.
  14. Pickford. Score was embarrassing enough. Without him it could have been a real humiliation. We need to sort out the RB situation fast. Teams are setting up to exploit us. We need some pace in midfield desperately. Sorry to say, but we are desperate for a Gana clone.
  15. They were simply head and shoulders better than us player for player. We were slow and lethargic, they were vibrant and full of energy.
  16. Looking very easy to go through us. We still react very slow. This could get embarrassing.
  17. So the question was, who would we rather have, Abraham or DCL? Not doing this to pick a fight though, more because I said Abraham was on a purple patch at the time and DCL was on a dry patch. Short term and long term are two very different visions. Now we have watched them both for most of a season. Have people changed their mind? Has it become a closer race? Or do some still prefer Abraham?
  18. Sorry I thought you were thinking of resale values. Yes I agree with finding the hidden gems while they are young and cheap.
  19. This is and has been the rule since the offside rule was invented as far as I know. Similar to the Shits goal in the 80’s euro final. Was it McDermot lying on the floor injured when they scored? The opposition cries for offside, but the goal was given. The big difference was he was to the side and not involved at all. But for me Gylfi didn’t make any impact on the outcome and the goal should have stood.
  20. I think this is the direction we’re trying to go in though. With Carlo and Marcel here. We’re trying to get away from being a club that buys for resale value. We want to become a club that buys players to make an impact on the team and win things, not just for resale value. leave that to the Southamptons.
  21. I’m afraid I don’t think the option was there really. When you struggle to get in a team that rates as one of the lowest scoring teams in the premier league, then I’m afraid it’s time to look elsewhere.
  22. That was my initial reaction. Penalty. We’ve been absolutely cheated out of this.
