Re: sixth of the season through..3 points off relegation pla

Fixtures coming up: Shaktar, Sunderland, Southampton, Real Sociedad, Stoke, Fulham, Sociedad again, then Arsenal. By that point over a quarter of the league campaign will have passed, so we'll have to see how things go. It's an uncomfortable time at the moment but a saving grace is that other Premie...

Re: sixth of the season through..3 points off relegation pla

Ed I think the most difficult aspect here is that Moyes has to move away from his comfort zone of having an "organised" team rather than an outstanding one, by this I mean the style of play and the expectation level at Everton. No one ever expected big things from Everton, and this leads to a state ...

Re: vs WBA

I can barely think of 2 or 3 goal scoring chances that we created in the entire game, in fact West Brom will look back at the chances they had and will think they could have had 3 or 4 goals today.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Regarding left backs, it seemed like Moyes was really pushing for one, with Baines as option 1 and due to Everton pressing for a high price - then Coentrao as option 2. I found this interesting because these 2 targets seemed like they would be good signings, but certainly senior signings, in terms o...

Re: vs Liverpool

Today's game, and Monday's game clarifies why trying to sign Fellaini would be the dumbest possible transfer for us at the moment, he is a defensive midfielder who essentially could play in Carrick's role, except being more physical but less technically gifted at it. I can't see him playing alongsid...
