If that’s correct (or close enough to) that’s really damning of Walsh’s signings and our last few managers. Pretty embarrassing that the 11th most expensive team in Europe are currently a shite, mid-table club.

It's misleading in my opinion. Spurs have been building for a lot longer than we have, and in the meantime the transfer market has exploded (where £5m players 3-5 years ago are suddenly £15-20m)

Spot on this. Another example of stats and figures being twisted to suit an agenda.

The defence has been utterly rubbish this season. 

The average goals conceded per match is 46 goals/26 games = 1.77

Looking at the effect when certain players don't participate*

Goal conceded per game without:

Defence 

Jagielka = 1.15

Keane = 1.25

Cuco = 2

Williams = 2.4

Midfield 

Gana = 1

Schneiderlin = 2

Rooney = 2.2

Davies = 2. 75

*subs of less than 10 minutes I've counted as not playing. 

The sample size isn'tttt big with Gana only missing 3 and Schneiderlin 6 but it's still food for thought. Only cleansheet we have against a top half club is when Gana missed the Chelsea one at home. Thought I'd highlight Martina for being defensively missed as well whilst I was at it. Too many people going with the herd lately.

It also depends on the opposition if Gana for example missed Huddersfield, Newcastle and Swansea but played against all the top 6 and another player missed all the top 6 but played against the lower team it’s hardly accurate is it.

Gana's not started v ManU at home and West Brom home and away; make of that what you like. Can we also reverse the stat to show we've only scored a third of a goal a game when he's not started but 1.2 when he has?

I mentioned the only cleansheet against top half was without him. Sample size is small other than that there's no bias.

You could but I did prelude the defence has been atrocious.

My point still remains the same- not just for Gana but any player for any team outside the top 6 playing against the top 6. Stats will almost always been worse playing better opposition.

Except he started that game (v Chelsea) and although he was subbed played more than half of it and was our third change, also was only taken off because he was injured; so that statement is complete fantasy.

Substitution, Everton. Beni Baningime replaces Idrissa Gueye because of an injury.

Club is a complete shithouse on the field and in the player/staff recruitment.

Going to take years of accepting no return on any of that investment Mosh ', made some fucking horrendous errors in Walsh and last 2 years player recruitment. 

Feel for him actually. Best intentions, massively mis-advised.

It needs to start with getting rid of the cunt and his mate, Walsh.

Which one? I know you're not a Mosh fan but he has done what he promised. Unfortunately been misinformed and guided, which has led to him spinning money and recruiting the wrong people.

Just a thought, when the club were toying with creating a role for a technical Director of football, why did they not just get one in who's been around the block and has a good level of experience in the position, rather than  risking a new role to someone unfamiliar in that style of role? That's still one thing that does baffle me and if that is on Mosh, then he deserves no sympathy on the matter.

I don't feel for him at all. If he wants to pay for inadequate advisors then that's his fault. He expected to splash the cash and for things to come easy. 

All the reports were that when Fonseca and Silva weren' available, Moshiri wanted Allardyce. Blame Walsh all you like but he is the one giving him the contract, for all he might have recommended him.

I honestly get goosebumps whenever I read about him. Now, he's one of the real legends we have.

I know I have posted this before but is worth a repeat.  Just after the war, my dad took me and my brother to see our great grandfather,  I think it was the only time we ever saw him. I would have been 10 or 11 years  old.  When we told him we supported Everton, he told us that he was invited to the celebration following Everton's  FA Cup win in 1933.  He went to a draw and pulled out an old, white, stiff collar.  It had all the autographs of the Everton  cup winning team.  He let me hold it and I actually touched Dixie Dean's autograph. What I wouldn't give to have that collar now.

Arsenal have scored 15 goals in 14 away games this season - 5 of those in 1 game against us!

 

Burnely hadn’t won a top flight game from a losing position in 8 years... until, of course, the faced us!

We are just the gift that keeps giving!

Just watched Shrewsbury get to the final of the EFL trophy and Toto Nsiala put in a towering performance.... he was a beast in the air, aggressive and commanding.

Can we get him back?

Really sad about this. I visited this bar when I was doing a summer internship in New York City in the summer of 2016. Funny, I planned to be in New York City following university graduation, but landed a job (that I'm very happy with) home in Atlanta (I believe I've mentioned my geographic location before, Cornish Steve, so don't act surprised that we share a city!). 

Given my admiration and love for NYC, there's a decent chance I eventually move there for work - this saddens me because my vision of NY life always involved Saturday mornings in my favorite part of town (West Village. For those who visit NYC, please take a peek at this part of town. Very cool, calm part of town despite being on the insane island of Manhattan) watching my favorite team play. Everton are very much a part of my life, and should I ever leave Atlanta, I'm sure joining the local supporter's club will be one of my quickest ways of making friends wherever I go, so I feel bad for those who are losing there home to watch the club play and also a part of my future dream (*Queue Oasis' "Half the World Away"*), but I'm sure another Everton bar will pop up and that group of people will find a different home to watch the game together (I believe there is an Everton bar that recently popped up in Brooklyn). Having a supporters club to watch the game with other Blues over here in the States makes the fan experience so much closer to the real thing (Going to Goodison), and it sure kicks the shit out of watching the matches in my bedroom as a high schooler on a shitty stream off the internet like I was doing when I started watching the Blues in 2010. 

In a way, I guess the NYC Evertonians will have to do what all Evertonians do when the club move from Goodison to Bramley Moore - cherish the memories of the old joint, while making new memories and creating new traditions at the new place. 

I'll be raising a glass for Mr. Dennehys on Saturday morning.

Sorry for the tangent - I usually stick to sarcasm and snide remarks aimed at players, the club, and some of the more fanatical supporters, but this struck a chord with me as an American Evertonian.

44 year old writer undergoes a Medical for Everton to see if he could cut it in the premier league.

Really interesting, well written and funny piece that; thanks for posting it Mark.

Our tactics today were bizarre and gave us no chance against a team that was likely to thrash us no matter how brilliant our set up, but these last six are far more important. City are out of this world. Need some positivity and hopefully some good results going into the summer rather than last season where our players checked out in April and May.

We had tactics? I missed that.
