Finding something to moan about has been difficult for even the Club`s harshest critics these last few days. Sure, there was a mild outbreak of `Kirkby is Crap` when re-worked pictures of the new stadium were published but , all in all, it`s hard to remember a time when so many Evertonians seemed so satisfied with their lot.
When you see the turmoil in which so many clubs exist, it makes you glad that you made the right choice all those years ago. Chairmen sacking managers, managers falling out with owners, directors suing other directors, and Fergie slagging everybody off may make good copy for the red tops but it hardly does much for the game.
How fortunate we are to have a stable Board, a Chairman who is really one of us, and a manager who promises to become the best in the land. Add to that a team who are really going places and it really makes you glad you weren`t born in Brasil!

There is cetaimly room for optimism at the moment but not eveything is rosy in the garden St Clare, maybe you could rush things along with a bit of devine intervention.

It feels like we won the FA Cup when you compare our team now to the team then!!
We are starting to play great attractive, attacking football, with a solid defence, and a great spine in the team with a good quality squad.
We have room to improve absolutely, but we are a million miles away from the shower that was EFC in those dark days.
Time to get behind EVERYONE at EFC and show some support for our boys. The atmosphere in the last couple of games was electric and the team have responeded. Lets keep it going.

He was my favourite player at the club when i was at school and from the moment he joined from wolves in late 1983 he and the team as a whole seemed to grow in stature. Was there some specific reason why he departed when we argubably had the best squad in our history and we were the united kingdoms best team.
If he had stayed I really feel we could of had that elusive double , instead of the shite stealing it at the finishing post. Just think of the damage him and lineker could have done, although the lineker/sharp partnership of 85/86 was hardly dormant.
Just one of those things that has always bothered me. I would ask him myself but may encounter some problems accessing the sky sports studios and also I dont have his home address!

In the mid 80?s one didnt have 5 strikers you had 2 with a backup striker.
Lineker and Sharp were the preferred partnership and didnt they score 70 goals between them. Adrian Heath had recovered from serious injury and was the backup with Paul Wilkinson in further reserve.
He was simply surplus to requirements despite his heroics of the championship season a decision taken by the manager Howard Kendall.

However, off the pitch, things are far from being perfect or even acceptable. Crap ticketing arrangements, Kirkby, Wyness, spiralling debt, etc, etc, etc.
I?m not being a killjoy, but these things are important too and will affect on-the-pitch events eventually. Some people need to realise that just because Moyesie is doing his job well and so are the players, others most certainly leave a lot to be desired! Just keep a sense of perspective.

Granted, there have been ticketing problems in the past, but if you’re referring to what happend against Metalist then you can only blame Royal Mail and if you’re referrinf to Nuremburg then you have to blame UEFA.
Oh, and I take it you just dont like Wyness then? Ah well.

As for Wyness, if you rate him Rich is spot on. Ah well indeed
12 Posted 29/11/2007 at 12:08:46
Exactly WHAT has Keith Wyness done wrong?
When he came in we were in a terrible financial state with a team going nowhere.
Things are raeally looking up for Everton yet there are still people who want to moan.
We are playing catch up with the "big" 4 after years of financial mismanagement. We have one of the best young managers around who is gradually building a whole new club in comparison to what we had.
Some people are only happy when they are moaning!
