The Mail Bag

I'm no advocate of that Dick!

Comments (17)

The Dutch man's comments on Everton could well be interpreted as mind games ahead of our encounter. But outside the top four these mind games are such a rarity that I doubt it has any sway.

The media aren't interested in what managers outside their favourite four have to say as it won't sell papers so these mind game antics are reserved for the elitist and egotistical CL select where it seems not the winning is more important, more the ?our team is better than yours? bitch fighting. Leave them to it, I'm glad we don't indulge.

So Dick, can't wait for Lescott to storm the wing, cut inside to Pienaar who makes a one-two with Arteta, passes to Osman who dummies it to McFadden who one-on-one with your goalie back heels it to the Yak who Ardellies style of Escape to Victory does an over head back heel and floats it up and down into the net... hmmmm...

His bleating is rather reminiscent of that of the Pakistan test side who mocked the return of David Gower against them one time. As Johnathon Agnew commented, perhaps they just don’t fancy having to bowl to him.

Pitch it up Dick.............

Sounds like youve had about two bottles of advocaat already so far today.

A word of advice. Some people on here can be what you call "touchy" about certain use of metaphors or standards of wordplay, intentional or not.

Anymore nonsense and you will be put in the ToffeeWeb Doghouse.

This is from, a quote from Mr Dick Advocaat, ’Zenit coach Advocaat, whose side sit a point behind leaders Everton having taken five from three Group A matches, said: "Everton have gone eight games unbeaten so you cannot do that if you don’t have quality. I know their players are hard-working and physical, but they have a lot of talent."

Seems like a fair reflection of EFC to me!

Pfwah, a Dutchman talking to Russian press and that being translated to English by some tabloid... For all we know Advocaat could have said his missus is fit.

Dick Advocaat once paid £12m for Tore Andre Flo.

End of conversation.

Just heard that Howard and Yobo will be missing tonight, YOBO - ankle and HOWARD - Sickness.

So will that be Wessels in goal and jag at centre back??

To be honest i am shitting myself about tonight?s game, i thgink it will be tough.

But, lets hope 6 or 7 of our players have a great game tonight and get the result, because IF we were to lose then could find ourselves finishing second or third and a potentially very difficult game in the new year.

Mark - have a look at this link, it made me feel pretty good about tonight; if recent results are anything to go by, we should be fine.,,11065_2907718,00.html

Thanks Alan - Yeah it makes you feel optimistic, but it states hibbo at RB so lescott can move in to CB???

Is that not where he has been playing??

Forgive me, but just got back from New York so not seen all the facts about the Pompey game.

........the good news is that Zemith’s top defender is one Fernando Ricksen- most famous for being substituted in an Old Firm game after 25 minutes when Celtic twisted him inside out.....I say let Arteta loose on him.......

I think he has made those comments because he would prefer Everton to play football rather than play a physical direct game as he knows his players are not playing competitive football in the league anymore and would probably be bullied out of it. Let?s stick to what we are good at hard work, getting stuck in and then play football.
