    Was never going going to happen unless Ric was struggling. McLaren one two, made up, in an ideal world Lando wins but I'll take it. Very happy for Daniel.

    I know im posting a lot here but im catching up after a couple of days away. One thing that’s really pissing me off at the moment is that when Rafa got the job I didn’t want him, I still don’t, but he’s here. When voicing my opinion of Rafa earlier in the summer I, and many other blues, were told that we were shit Evertonians for not supporting the manager, for not backing him from day one, for not wanting him anywhere near our club. But I see a player who has done the business for us when fit, got an assist in an Anfield derby win, scored at Old Trafford, brought the club to the attention of the worlds media and opened us up to millions of new fans around the world, but it’s fine to get on his back because “it’s obvious he wants to leave” even though in the many public interactions he’s had this year he hasn’t said so or “hes too lazy to play for us now” or “he earns to much money”. Bernard has been our top earner for a few years and did fuck all, no one was on his case. Every single supporter who’s on James case and giving him shit, every single one of you was made up when he played that ball through to Richarlison. When we were winning games under Carlo and he was doing things we haven’t seen in a blue shirt for a long time no one was complaining then. That doesn’t suit the argument anymore though.

  4. Pissed off to tell you the truth, it takes Rondon a full 1 minute and 32 seconds to put his boots on and tie his laces whereas it only used to take Moise Kean 49 seconds and we sold him! Honestly don't know what Brands was thinking and the sooner he's out of the club the better.

    Most of what I'm reading in this thread is nonsense, to be honest. What matters is that we have a world-class player in our squad, and any manager unwilling to include him in his plans is an idiot.

    Depends. If it’s for Bill that scored 9 goals in one game… then £250k is fair and the agent will ask for it. But if it’s Palfy, who couldn’t score in the nags head on Friday night after two hours happy hour… then I doubt the agent would ask for £2.50 a week 😉

    The amount of dick measuring since Silverstone has been a joke, Hamilton was silly trying to go around the outside on Lap 1 and Max knew what he was doing pushing him off. Max was a bit silly trying to go around the outside into Turn 1, and should have backed out but didn't - Lewis knew what he was doing squeezing him into the kerb too. Don't get me wrong, these are grown men and it's elite motorsport but this amount of dick measuring is just going to cause more and more scenes like today - both of them look like prats. I just get the feeling that this is the start, not the end and every time they get close from now until Abu Dhabi there will be fireworks, fun to watch I suppose but absolutely stupid. Almost as if the Championship will go to who manages to take the least amount of damage.

    Don’t think he actually posted any of it. must have been when a few TTs visited him on his yacht! They may have videoed it on their phones though 😉 Im going to do what I always do, judge him on the pitch. Up to this point he has been our best player when on the pitch. If he comes on and plays well I will judge him accordingly, if he comes on and looks disinterested…. I’ll judge him accordingly. Good to see that every person here has agreed that his talent is far from average now though!

    Can I ask a genuine question? For those banging on about wages, if you took that out of the equation, what would your opinion be? Personally, I'd still be ecstatic that we've got one of the most talented footballers I've ever seen, never mind in a blue shirt, who's got a huge market impact for Everton and says and shows he's happy pretty much all the time. I wish he would defend more, and when we don't have someone who can pick up his slack, he gets dropped without question. But if we've got someone who can take up the extra work, he's still my number 10 simply because he can and will score and create with ease, especially now we have willing runners.

    Why is it clear he wanted to leave? And if so why did he turn down the offers he had over the summer? How do you know he doesn’t care about the club? Based on one sentence when he asked who we were playing at the weekend in a conversation with a fan on Twitch? Ridiculous assumptions.

  14. Maybe that’s why they only named 24 when they could have named 25, they maybe expecting Gylfi will not be charged or found guilty so have kept a space for his return.

    An attitude doesn’t have to be bad to be not what’s required maybe a better word to use would be his belief. Let’s be honest if he is desperate to play for Everton he will do in training what is asked of him and he will get his opportunities but under Rafa make no mistake it’s his way or the highway, and we’ve needed that in a manager for sometime regardless of what players it’s aimed at. I have said in the past Rafa isn’t an idiot he wouldn’t hold back the team because of any personal vendettas or historical disagreements, if you have ability and do what he asks of you and your the best option you play.

    Think they both are at fault. However - first lap Hamilton pulled out of a similar situation wheres in this one max didnt and the accident was the result. Truly lucky no one got hurt.

    I thought that was completely on Verstappen. And it's a good job they brought the halo in or there could have been a serious injury because of his stupidity. He was naughty with Lewis at the start of the race as well but just managed to be the right side of the line. This time he wasn't. Lets see what punishment is given out.

    Still amazes me how people think that they know what footballers are paid, nobody knows as it's highly confidential. The numbers banded around are best guesses, some of course will be nearer the mark than others but if you think there's a public spreadsheet where Everton break down what each player is paid then you're off your rocker. Different sport, but Martin Brundle (F1) said that it always used to make him laugh how the media would be up in arms about how much his drivers were being paid, he said in all the reports he didn't find one that was anywhere near to what was actually going into their bank account - it's highly, highly confidential.

    We've opened Pandoras box if that sum of £250 a week is correct, any decent player we attempt to buy from now on will be looking for the same money. He may be very talented football wise but if he wants to play regularly he will have to give more than the odd goal or a few good passes. Other than that we give him away so he is no longer the yardstick for other players wages when they come here.

    His talent is immense it’s just his application that’s lacking hopefully Rafa and the team can change that.

    Look, at the end of the day - if Rafa can get more out James the way he looks to be doing with Gray, Iwobi & Doucoure ( even Allan has looked a lot better ) it will only be a good thing for Everton.

    how do you know James wants to leave? You keep saying this over and over like it’s a fact. You don’t know what James wants. None of us do. But he hasn’t said he wants to leave. His agent hasn’t said he wants to leave. He’s turned down other offers, they may be lower wages, but if he really wanted to leave surely he would take the pay cut? nice paraphrasing of Rafas words though. Or making up Rafas words. I’m not sure which is more accurate.

  35. The so-called 'weaker' teams to play is helpful as it gives Rafa a chance to really understand the players he's got to work with at the moment. So far doing all right and hopefully 3 more points on Monday.

    James hasn’t been perfect… but if we going to expect him to say “we” and “us” then he has rights to expect our management to say “James is our player and he isn’t going anywhere”

    I'd be interested to know what his original words meant, rather than the interpretations. Often when they're translated they have to be loosely translated because there isn't a direct translation for the words, and things can then get misinterpreted leading to people losing their minds. But, tbh, I don't care if he's calling us Everton and not we. We've had players and managers talk about us like we're the great love of their lives and then fuck off without a second thought.
