Where do we put comments about other matches in the prem?

e.g. so pleased villa getting beat. That's one team I want to do so bad...wonder why 😂

You can also make a thread if you want to talk about something specific. But make it in the general sport section if it’s not about Everton.

Newcastle I dislike now and its weird because in the Keegan and Robson days I wanted them to do well. But some of their fans are weirdly obsessed and bitter about us so I hope they fail with their blood money.

I think we should be finishing about the likes of Bournemouth, Fulham, Forest, Southampton and Leeds as a minimum.

I would like to think this young and new look team will be competing with the likes of Wolves, Leicester, Palace, Brighton  and if we get lucky with injuries etc at best possibly competing with Villa, Newcastle and West Ham as best of the rest this season. 

I think Man City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and even Man U are pretty much nailed on for the top six positions this season - may be a rebuilding Man U might have a wobble.

This seasons recruitment does give me hope that more players with the right attitude and battle will be taking to the pitch. It will take time for it all to come together and partnership to develop though. It's going to take a few months for the squad to bed in for sure - so almost going to be about snatching as many points as we can before November break.

It is interesting that nobody has voted for 15th to 17th place. 

From the non bias outside world which takes our love of the club out of the predications - all the bookies have us roughly at 15th place and the so called 'super computer' has us finishing in 16th place.

It's because of how bad last season is and most other fans and the media are Lamps sceptics. But if we can improve on last season even with some draws we will do better than that. Granted losing Dom in the short term is a blow but the squad looks more solid if we can add some more creativity /fire power I fancy we will be lower midtable

I optimistically put 11-14. It's difficult to guage with Richarlison leaving, however we've added quality in defence and midfield. I think 11-14th is achievable if we can sign a forward who is going to get us 10+ goals this season. If not, I fear where we might end up.

I think you are right about everybody being Lampard sceptics - Lampard is also the bookie fav for first Prem manager to leave his post!!! WTF.

Club are backing him this window, he is bringing the right caliber players and players seem to want to come and work with him, the fans are on his side and I think we will have patience with him and this new squad start to work with each other, it also seem to me Frank has already developed a love for the club.

If we were to change manager this season we'd lose his excellent backroom staff too. I think I really would give up with the club.

Agreed, I think most fans realise we are rebuilding from a pretty low baseline, so will be willing to give time to see improvement.

Just need to cast an eye toward Arsenal and the time Arteta has been allowed to build something there.

We can't shit the bed when we have a run of bad results, which we will have, and could easily be this side of Xmas. Putting a new squad together does not happen overnight.

Another key point is that this is effectively Frank's start, and that it will take time for the players and staff to adjust etc. Last season cannot be factored into him building anything, it was plugging holes. Now the boat isn't in danger of sinking, the work on it can start. Mid table should be reasonable but I still believe we have the quality in the squad to be top 8 before the window.

last year how many time did we find ourselves a goal or two down? and most of the time because of something stupid rather than the other team playing really well. The first priority is not to give teams a head start in games.  You have to say our recruitment so far should go along way in sorting this out.

As dull as it might be to start with, this season I will take plenty of 0-0 and 1-0 wins and a solid base to build off - especially away.

Haha no I honestly believe that as a club we will target Europe. Not just as an optimistic target, but I think the club will believe they can teach that target.

I mean…. Why not haha?

A little from column a and a little from column b, I see.

If we can get a striker in, and keep key players (DCL) fit, and in form I can maybe see us top 10, just

City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arse, Chelsea, Utd, West Ham all have stronger squads,

Brighton, Barcodes, Wolves, all look strong but catchable.

So maybe be in amongst that group if we do what we need to do in the market and keep key players fit.

When Arteta started at Arsenal you could see a lot of what he was trying to achieve even if it didnt come off all the time. The training ground work was clear even if the results weren't. 

I think the same will also happen with Ten Haag. I only saw a little bit of the Utd game but I have kept an eye on Ten Haag for a while and the longer he stays at United, the more you will see his style of play come through.

We are clearly a much bigger job than either of those two sides seeing as we have got it so wrong, so many times in our recent past. We haven't seen that same stamp on the team from Lampard yet but there are a lot of reasons for that. I am hoping that we do start seeing some clear patterns of play, especially going forward because at the moment in feels a bit hit and hope. 

Whilst we were comfortable for a lot of the Chelsea game, in the build up to the penalty we were all over the place. I think there is still a hell of a lot left to prove but I hope they do!

Bar Mykolenko and maybe more due to injuries than desire we should if we play a back 4 or 5 see 3 changes in defence, which was very much required as I feel our defending last season was our biggest problem. If we don’t have good defensive spell in the next few games then I’m concerned we will be in more trouble than we may think this season, I think we will be pinning a lot of hopes on Mykolenko Tarkowski Coady Holgate and Patterson shoring up the back line and keeping clean sheets.
