    Match of the Day 2

    I can't agree with the comments that the game warranted limited coverage by MOTD. Many millions of fans can't get to the game, and don't have SKY or BT. They're entitled to see their club's players in a game, to see how they perform, and equally to watch good defending, even if these things...

    What would they operate on, given that all his injuries have been different?

    2022/23 Vitalii Mykolenko

    He played as well as he normally does, and he put a shift in, credit to him. I just don't think he's good enough.

    Confirmed Signing Idrissa Gueye

    The tweet says, 'pay', not 'buy', so who knows?

    Confirmed Signing Idrissa Gueye

    It's a bit vague. €10 million could be the value of the contract buyout, including his wages for this season, and perhaps more.

    2022/23 Anthony Gordon

    Until 1987 it did mean something, and it was applied in practice, though not enough to always win everything, it doesn't mean that. Since then it has been diluted, no argument from me on that. I think that while it can't apply to league position, it should have some resonance when we are...

    2022/23 Anthony Gordon

    I'd like to put that claim to the test. I appreciate that Kenwright during his tenure has failed to uphold it, but you have to set your own bar high. I wonder what a supporters poll would say? Remove NSNO from the club's livery, or keep it for sentimental reasons?

    2022/23 Anthony Gordon

    I'm not an accountant and we have half a dozen full time people at the club whose job it is to make the money decisions. Remember we have already sold Richarlison to appease the FFP brigade. Selling 2 diamonds to buy some lesser junk does not interest me. 'Nil Satis Nisi Optimum' anyone?

    2022/23 Anthony Gordon

    But it's not business that we have to do. Most fans don't want him gone, despite the insistence of some in this GOT thread.

    2022/23 Anthony Gordon

    If there's more than one club offering 60 mill, then why the help would we accept only that much? There is some serious , big interest in AG from clubs who either see themselves dropping out of contention (Chelsea) and others who see this season as potentially league champions (Spurs) and maybe...

    We would waste most of that 60 mill on dross, agents fees and silly wages.

    Everton Summer Transfer Thread - 2022

    We would be silly to turn down £55m + for Gordon, but what the actual, are *Evertonians* stating on here in print that they would accept less than has already been bid for him? Some even offering the hackneyed wit that they would drive him down there themselves?

    2022/23 Anthony Gordon

    Bayern Munich (when he was a teenager), Tottenham, money-no-object Newcastle, and now Chelsea, want or wanted AG, but he's apparently useless to a sizable number on this forum. Remember he's never played in a settled, confident side in his PL career and hardly had a decent CF to supply last...

    Burnley or Leeds?

    Got done over by Leeds fans back in the late '70s at Elland Road, never forgiven them (obviously). I'll have an extra tipple tonight if they fall through the trapdoor.

    Everton Summer Transfer Thread - 2022

    The only reason for giving Kenny a new contract would be in the hope of getting a fee for him in January.

    Match Thread Everton v Crystal Palace - Preview, Match Report & MotM Poll

    Voted for Dele like the majority, watching the game in the ground at the time it was easy to see his quality and how he had the Palace players worried and causing them problems that didn't exist in the 1st half. Three days later and I'm still buzzing about that match, how I'd love to go back in...
