  • Hard one to call... though it woukd be nice to beat a London team..It really dose come down to form, confidance and luck..On form we could get a result.. confidance in the back line should be high... we have rode our luck at times..Reffs and VAR are always a hindrance to our game..If the midfield could play to maximum level then we can beat anyone on the day..It will be tight and I feel if we get the first goal we can win it.....

  • John@212, unless a I have missed something, I have never read any of your posts that have offended or disrespected others, always seen you as the perfect gentleman.I can also say I have also found Mike and Lyndon to be very helpful and have done a fantastic job on here during lockdown, along with other posters and their contributions.So I have no idea what has happened, as Evertonians, we should be sticking together, by all means have differing view points, but we cannot always be right, people see things differently, there is no right or wrong, just good honest opinions of how we are feeling at the time.For my pennies worth I think Carlo is putting us in the right direction, without even spending a penny on any players, before he moves us forward he has some players to get off the pay roll, and let’s not forget some of these players now playing and getting results, are the same players who have downed tools on our past four Managers, that shows what Carlo has already achiev...

  • I don't think Zouma has had a good season and would not want him back, would rather keep Mina and see if he can improve....

  • Jay, I can't believe you're still commenting. Emperor and clothes springs to mind on this occasion. Darren likes to argue about arguing and all the points you make in your 2000+ word are spot on. But as someone else pointed out, you have scored an own goal in one of your earlier comments so just own it and move on, you're just making yourself look ridiculous now....

  • David (215) - I don't really want to get in the middle of your contretemps-a-trois with Darren and Jay, but I assume that Jay's post at 205 is making reference to the toing and froing between myself and Darren regarding the relative merits (and treatment) of Tom Davies in the Leicester match thread that MK wrote. (In a way I feel like the unknowing Igor in respect of the creation of this particular Frankenstein's Monster of a thread...)I just want to say that I often enjoy Darren's posts - and the same goes for Jay's posts. I find that it's quite hard to track people on ToffeeWeb - there must be a few hundred of us who post semi-regularly - so the people who are most prolific are generally the ones who are easiest to notice. Because Darren is one of those bold and regular contributors I was aware that he has taken it on himself to be the self-appointed Protector-in-Chief of our academy players. So after he'd commented that "By the time the final whistle went, he (Tom Davies) was hea...

  • Keanes strength is winning headers. If we defend deep as a team like Burnley do he's good.He's just to slow to play a high line. If we had a better midfield that hurried and harassed the opposition better that would also help, but we don't. So yes, tactics, formation and other players do make a difference, but I judge a player on what I see the player do, i.e. Schnides did very little, so no matter if a team keeps winning and everyone appears great, he never did for me.Age I'm not so concerned about. It's what the player offers in the current season and possibly next. Gana was top class, so athletic if he was 25 or 35 I didn't care. I would have tried to keep him but I can fully understand him leaving.Zouma is better than Keane. So yes I'd have him in a heart beat to compete with Mina and Holgate. ...

  • Dear me Jay. I was kinda hoping you would respect my request and leave me out of this. I have to ask ; Why don't you just type "who me ?" and have done with it ? Save yourself all that hassle. Do you really think people are that gullible ? Please ditch the hollier-than'thou routine.I was not born yesterday There are very few people who criticise Ancelotti on here. There are even fewer who complain about the treatment academy players receive. As far as I know? There is only one poster who does both Your foolish denial (before you were accused ) that you did not target an individual poster in your article will fool no regular visitor to this site. Take a step back Jay. Do you really believe you are not guilty of all the things you accuse Darren of ?. Let me offer you some advice; intead of mentally cultivating this image you believe posters on this site have of you. Go back over this thread. Read what they actually say about you. They don't ...

  • There’s one or two rumours Mina may be sold and be replaced with Zouma. But this hearsay is thrown around like confetti at this time of year....

  • Bernard has performed well this season in several home games but has been very poor in most of the away games, being hauled off at half-time more than once. His inconsistency mirrors that of the team as a whole.I think one reason he has struggled is that Digne has not been on top form for much of the season. The partnership between the two of them was one of the features of our success in the closing months of last season. Another reason is that, alongside a pedestrian central midfield incapable of controlling the play, especially in away matches, Bernard is not the player who can change the dynamic of a game by grabbing possession and driving the team forward. He is a player who can add value in the final third by unlocking defences with a clever piece of footwork, a neat pass or a tidy finish. To be at his most effective, he needs to be in a team playing on the front foot, dominant in possession and pushing the opposition back towards their own goal. At present, we a...

  • Hi all, this will be my final post on this thread, I was moved to state my case when it was mentioned by another contributor, that I had been treated unfairly. I would like to thank those who supported me, and I would say to everyone that as far as I'm concerned the subject is a closed book. As some have pointed out, we are all Evertonian's hoping for the same things, I intend to continue posting, I believe I'm a fair minded man and I hold no grudges. There are more important things to discuss, and I hope to be a part of those discussions....

  • Indeed, I don’t believe a centre back is needed at all, unless they decide to move Keane on but he’s doing okay at the moment.We don’t need to have all the youngsters go on loan for two seasons before we give them a chance....

  • Michael Kenrick gets annoyed when people hijack threads to talk about the RS. Similarly, I get frustrated when participants decide to hijack threads and make it about themselves. To be clear I’m not talking about say Jamie who has asides about his life that are relevant to his fan experience. I’m talking about “I hate you, this is why I’m morally superior to you” in nine volumes. Exchange emails and have it out in private. ...

  • Guys, a quick question as we all know there are certain teams/grounds where we have a pitiful away record. So the question is when did we last win away at Spurs?I just don't know. I know Arsenal is 1996, and I'm sure it can't be that bad....

  • Genuinely can't believe this is still going on having not logged in since this morning.Some of you on here need to take a bit of a step back and have a think about what is important in life. What isn't important is that everyone agrees with you. It is OK to have different opinions. We all see things differently. I love how passionate you all are about the club but ultimately, we all support the same team and it really is not worth falling out about. At the end of the day, no matter what opinions we have about each player's performance we all want them to do well and be the best they can be.I've dug out Davies a few times as he gives the ball away far too often, I still believe he can turn into a top player. Nothing would make me happier than if he, Gordon and the rest of the young lads helped turn us into a title winning side. I'm not sure they will yet given performances/consistency but no one would be happier than if they did. COYB...

  • Jay Wood -This thread has morphed into some Side Show Bob thing.Apologies for my part in that. I do love a good sidebar.Davies is a player. He will be a valuable part of this squad for the foreseeable future. I can see him having a very long and prosperous career at Everton.Carlo is a master for me. I really believe he's "getting" the Club, loves the challenge, he's doing what he loves best - coaching and not just buying success, and he will turn Everton into a force to be reckoned with.Finally, all this nastiness. Everyone just apologize and move on FFS. We're all on the same team here. Debate is a gift from God. Snarkiness is the twisting of banter and debate by dark forces. Hyperbole? Yes. And yes, I'm guilty of being an absolute twat myself here on TW. But if I can offer one suggestion, everyone bury the freaking hatchet and move on. Everyone's human. We have opinions, we lose our shit, we say things we wish we could take back, we back ourselves in...
    Jamie Crowley in It's Not THAT Bad
  • Hi Tony [202] Michael Kenrick has every right to answer a disrespectful post in like manner, but I would challenge anyone on this site, to point to a post from me that falls under that category. I have posted earlier, possibly on this thread, that the two principles that I have valued all my life are, "Do as you would be done by" and "Manners maketh the man" I can honestly say that any of my posts that may have caused offence have not been for that specific purpose.Hi Jamie [201] I forgot to mention that although it wasn't directly addressed to me, I believe it was implied that I was regarded as a 'Snowflake' and not being familiar with the modern vocabulary I assumed it wasn't a compliment. However because it sounds like such a pleasant name, do you think I'd be accepted on one of the "Flufffy Everton" sites you referred to? The last sentence was my feeble attempt at humour, and there was definitely no offence intended....
