    Blue 250 got a reaction from rubecula in Dave Thomas   
    In the papers a couple of days ago was a story about Dave Thomas (Everton winger of the 70's).He looked pretty fit, problem is he's slowly going blind.He was pictured with his guide dog, infact the story was to raise awareness of his condition and the need for guide dogs.
    Interestingly mentioned that at every medical he had during his football days eyesight was never something checked.( guess this must be the same for the refs !).
     
    The article got me thinking back to the 70's and Dave of moulded studs and socks rolled down fame, flying down the touchline, sticking the ball directly onto Latchfords head.
     
    There's recent talk about Gerry being a great crosser of the ball, but I don't think I'v ever seen a better crosser than Dave Thomas.

    We've still got to play the rs, could be the game that makes all the difference.

    Blue 250 got a reaction from holystove in Ronald Koeman   
    Come on, he has made up for it by mentioning Lukaku 210 times for trying to steal Davies goal from him.
     
    Can't remember which pundit it was who said a good forward will always try and get the last touch.There could have been a City defender just behind him to clear it off the line, then he would have been slated for not having a killer instinct.

    Blue 250 reacted to StevO in Stadium - All ifs, buts and maybes...   
    I'm shocked at some of the negativity towards Goodison.
     
    The place is clean and tidy, there is some horse shit outside on a match day like anymother stadium with policing. The price for kids is very reasonable, one of the cheapest in the league. The place is old and tired, but not somewhere to just give up on. I want the move to the docks, more than anything, but I'm sure I'll cry my eyes out on the last day. I just hope I can spend that last game with my dad (he doesn't have a season ticket) as it was him who brought me there. Just like his Dad took him and his brothers. A part of my family is at the old lady, as much as I want progress I dread leaving her behind.

    Look at haf fuming because the best goalscorer we've had in 20 years is about to sign a new contract. Ironic that he calls me a kopite.

    It's called business, the rs will nearlly always turn us over, I've won hundreds of pounds over the years on this game.
     
    Helps ease the pain, don't worry a fairy doesn't die when you bet against your own team, and the cash comes in handy.

    Blue 250 got a reaction from Sibdane in Yannick Bolasie   
    Unknown quality for sure, opponents really don't know what he's going to do when he has the ball, problem is I'm not sure Bolasie really knows.Exciting and frustrating at the same time.
     
    Hope it's a quick recovery.

    And you are saying a similar thing about Keoman. If Rom had that goal ratio you would be saying it should be judged against the whole season.
     
    And that in a nutshell is your problem. I'm not pissed off at all mate, and I'm not the one posting on every thread about Rom writing an essay every time preaching about how shite Rom is while the rest of us recognise his benefits and flaws.
     
    As I have said before those stats should be taken in context, as should all and your are being a massive hypocrite considering your responses to other people who have posted stats on here dispelling your Rom myths.
     
    Anyway, once again I am going to (try) and leave it there because it's pointless discussing something with someone who has such an entrenched view. Enjoy the game.

    Blue 250 reacted to badaids in Ronald Koeman   
    What worries me is that since the first day, Koeman's demeanour and discourse has felt like a man at the end of his tenure, rather than at the beginning of one.
     
    Even ignoring the fact that he is Dutch (renowned for being awkward), and his outspokeness, he has never felt to me like a man that wants to be here or is enjoying himself. I've no idea if he was like that at Soton, but he just seem like he is going through the motions. Maybe he feels like he has made an mistake in coming to the club, or there's something else going on - but what I see is a team that doesn't want to play for a bloke that doesn't want to be here.

    First half abysmal.
     
    Second half we showed more effort but it was still hopeless.

    Spot on!
     
    Funny how people are already writing off Koeman because he doesn't say what they want to hear.He's picked up what looked on paper a good squad only to find that some just aren't doing the business and others are injury prone or just injured.On top of that his best player wants away.
     
    Give the bloke a chance.

    Couldn't believe when it was mentioned on TV that it's 25 years since the end of the Gulf war !
     
    Veterans from all wars and conflicts deserves thanks.A lad from my school was killed in Ireland, my Grandad survived Gallipoli and my wife lost her great Grandad with his two brothers in WW1, so my thoughts today were with them.Saving private Ryan was about 3 brothers getting killed in combat.Well it happened in my Wifes family, but there's no Hollywood blockbuster to remind us, just a block of marble with their names and ages on.Her Grandad, when his father was killed had to leave school at 12 and find work to help the family.In the 2nd world war in the last few days of the conflict a Jap mortar took off his left leg and put a steel plate in his head.Wars were not very kind to Frank !
     
    The last 100 years or so have seen a great generation dissapear.
     
    We have to remember them.
     
    What ever service you did Rubes, thanks !

    Oh boy, the class of 85 !
     
    Eaisly the best in Europe, more than that though, fast flowing football, compare that to Mr Martinez and his sideways, backwards tic tac football, none of the class of 85 would have got in his team, I mean can you imagine Trevor Steven being asked to pass the ball back to his keeper.............Nev would probably have punched him.
     
    Season ticket holders between 84 and 87.........lucky bastards.
     
    Bitter, and for a good reason.

    Palace can only play the team that's put in front of them, they did a job on us no doubt!....and probably should have won, they did well.
