    Really getting bad for my health, this. If you took out the actual football I'd probably enjoy being an Everton fan. It's why I love international breaks and long summers. I'm not surprised, nor angry, nor disappointed anymore. Just tired of...

    Still only talking to Dutch media outlets i see bigging himself up about deals that he tried but fell thru at the last minute. Quite a few of them isn't there. He was also waa also quoted as saying "One day I will return to holland" hopefully...

    If it was the manager who identified Gray and Townsend and alerted us to 6 goals in 8 games Diaz (is it) I'd be inclined to be letting him use his list.

    If you pick apart the bones you can find valid things to criticize. Big picture, how anyone can be disappointed, I don't know. Even notwithstanding the results and the table, we have a team where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts...

    He is doing great, but working with some people of very mediocre calibre upstairs. He needs money to invest, and freedom to spend it. The more constraints on either of these things there are, the less likelihood over time of him turning us into...

    Getting ahead of myself a bit here, but.... ...next 4 games we can win, then City away is a massive test. I see us taking minimum 8/9 points from games against WHU (H) Watford (H) Wolves (A) Spurs (H) and possibly all 12. A couple of games...

    brieverton replied to the thread 2021/22 Andros Townsend.
    Even if he contributed nothing else, he has already repaid the investment in him wages. What an impact he has had, it is as Roberto would say, phenomenal. And absolutely so. It's staggering to think of the players he has outshone already, some...

    Exactly the work ethic and commitment we need. Benitez has been transformational in that aspect.

    As much as I dont rate Brands any team outside the top 6-7 will have a shaky bench with 6 senior players injured. It's a shambles our injury list at present wtf is the medical/conditioning team doing?
  • brieverton
    The bench today should serve as a symbol of 30 years of managed decline and ineptitude. But most particularly what has gone on since 2016. At this point I just have a resigned sadness about it. It's just completely illogical to suggest we...
  • brieverton
    We know the routine - plucky 1-1 and they have 2-3 subs to come on and put the game to bed 2-1/3-1 against tiring legs whereas we have Davies and Kenny to try grab a winner :oops: Its why the top teams stay top because have depth of quality that...

    Or pass further than 10 yards, in an attacking direction.

    The starting CBs are all second rate for a kick off. And in other positions it doesn';t take much to make us understrength when we get an injury. I repeat: this squad is not fit for purpose. There's no large amounts of cash to accelerate us...
