Shite and Getting Worse

By James Boden :  25/11/2009 :  Comments (21) :

Just when you hoped that it wouldn’t get any worse David Moyes comes up trumps again. We have been beaten by Hull City. Yes Hull Fucking City! The team who survived relegation by a total fluke. What was it, 1 win in about 20 games? And they continued that vein into this season. But wait, who they would be happening to play but Everton. And once again we fold over like a pack of cards. Forget the 2 goals we scored in the 2nd half (and neither was in open play anyway) the fact is we have dropped yet more points against another shower of shite. There is simply no excuse for this.

And who is to blame. Well Bullshit Billy is bound to receive much of the criticism and rightfully so but what about Moyes? Oh, how silly of me, I forgot Darling Moyes can do no wrong. Forget that we have lost to the likes of Hull, Bolton and Burnley this season to add to those spectacular home draws with Stoke and Wolves, the fact is we need to be at full strength to beat these mighty sides with mega transfer kitties. I imagine each of those teams mentioned spent 50 million each over the summer.

You see to compete with the likes of Bolton Wanderers you need to be able to spend huge money every year. If not then to expect a win against teams like them is simply inexcusable and those who dare moan should fuck off because Moyes is most certainly not to blame for all these dropped points and crap football. You see incase you didn’t get the hint the guy is certain to take over from Ferguson at Old Trafford and not only that but he is also Everton’s greatest manager ever and don’t you forget it!

The season was over the 1st day in but yet his fans wouldn’t have that. They kept telling us all this gibberish “once we have our players back, look what he’s done, we can still finish 4th”, BLAH BLAH FUCKING BLAH! Will Arteta or Jagielka even play this season? When will Neville actually be back? And speaking of Neville I never thought I would say this but we are missing his presence. Forget Osman he wouldn’t have done anything of note. So I would like to hear the pro Moyes brigade stand up on his behalf now and tell us what still makes him so great.

You only have to look at Moyes's record when it comes to his big money signings: Fellaini, Kroldrup, Beattie all shite. Even Johnson and Yakubu never did or do set the world on fire. So as great as it would be to have a big transfer kitty the fact is Moyes cannot be trusted with money. And look at the summer signings. Billy looks like he could be a cracker however the other 2 are turning into right donkeys. And let’s face facts if Atletico Madrid was willing to sell Heitinga for less than 6 million then he couldn’t have been that good. Didn’t we sign a defender who cannot defend? WONDERFUL!

Moyes did a fantastic job to improve us and get us to the level we were on but this is now all being pissed away. Yes Kenwright deserves slack but Moyes shouldn’t be let off scot free. He doesn’t mind taking the plaudits when all is well but how about for once he takes some responsibility instead of sulking.

Speaking of Kenwright I wonder what he will do now that his dream move has gone up in flames? Where next? He put all our money into Destination Kirkby and got nothing but a fuck off from both the government and half our fans who found his claims insulting. Hopefully this will spell the end of his reign. I for 1 despise this bloke. He has been found out as a liar and a conman. I can’t believe I used to believe that he put his blood into Everton. I won’t blame him for the Rooney debacle: that was Rooney who instigated his departure as far as I am concerned. But I will blame him for put virtually nowt in financial terms into the club and going missing when we need him most yet as soon as something good happens he can’t get himself off the telly, that attention seeking prick!

And then it comes all down to Sunday as this really is shit or bust. Liverpool themselves are in dire straights and this will be ugly viewing. We are without a doubt in a relegation fight now and this game will define our season and indeed Moyes. Will he again be shown up or will he react and we come out fighting like never before. It has to be the latter or we are in deep shit. We have had far too many humiliations this season alone. If one occurs Sunday then that will be the final straw as far as I am concerned.

Yes we’re shit this season so far. The injuries have had a big part to play in that, but you’re right in a way, its just not good enough.

However Moyes deserves a chance to turn it around again, for this reason alone:

2002-03 7th
2003-04 17th
2004-05 4th
2005-06 11th
2006-07 6th
2007-08 5th
2008-09 5th

Thats 3 top 6 finishes in a row.

I also wanted to respond to this

"You only have to look at Moyes’s record when it comes to his big money signings: Fellaini, Kroldrup, Beattie all shite. Even Johnson and Yakubu never did or do set the world on fire."

I have no idea how you can class Fellaini as a flop.

Kroldrup was a flop, as was Beattie. Johnson was sold for a 2million pound profit, so how was he a flop?

As for Yakubu, when he was fit and playing he actually did set the world alight with his goals.

If you’re going to have a go at Moyes transfers, you have to at least acknowledge his success stories: Arteta, Pienaar, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines, Saha, Lescott, Nevillie, Howard and hopefully Bily.

Funnily enough Brian I had good words for both Neville and Billy. Fellaini was our record buy and has failed to deliver. He has been a hinderance to Cahill which in turn has been a hinderance to the team. As for Yakubu although to an extent I can see where you are coming from nobody should forget his awful run of form before getting injured which perhaps ironically helped us improve.As for League positions I cannot argue with that but I did say he had done fantastic. Just I believe this same person is now going to piss that all away

’I have no idea how you can class Fellaini as a flop.’

Because if we sold him at this minute in time I think we’d get about 5 mill...

I think Fellaini has potential which he’ll show with better players around him in our best 451...but so far...he’s shown very little in terms of that potential...That’s why some people may consider him a flop...

To assess the players ask this.
Which player would any of the top clubs want?
The answer is none aprt from Rodwell
who will be gone if not in January then certainly in the Summer.
Moyes and his tacticts are taking this club to Oblivion.

Ciaran I don’t even think Fellaini will be that good. And Steve you are spot on with what you have just said and that is very sad.

The thing is Moyes is waiting till all our players come back. But the thing is by the time they return we will be right at the deep end.

All those having a go at Fellaini, he aint sh*te but has been made to look sh*te playing in a team who aint got a clue! Fellaini likes to play the ball on the ground, like rodwell, pienaar, arteta and ossie! When Pienaar was fit, we were seeing the best of Rodwell and better signs of Fellaini as the 3 of them understand what passing the ball to feet means! Since Pienaar has been injured, Rodwell has been sh*te as well and is lumping it long at times and this is what has affected Felli! Dont get me wrong, he has not been brilliant, but if he was playing in a footballing team like Arsenal, you would see him being a decent player, but moyes’s hoofball tactics dont help the likes of him!

Talking of moyes, Sunday will decide his fate...he has sent out a team all season who lack fight and pride wearing the blue shirt...if he cant get them up for Sunday, he should walk! Bilic or Hiddink to come in for me...i think a decent european manager will get the footballers in our team playing well!!!

Have a look at Hulls team last night as opposed to Evertons ,there was not one Hull player who would get into the team Everton fielded, so how in the hell were we 3 down in 30 mins ?

Two games on TV at the weekend, involving Stoke, Portsmouth, Bolton and Blackburn, NONE of their players would have got into the Everton team last night, the injury situation is a smokescreen for piss poor preparation and tactics employed by Mr Moyes.
Someone explain to me how all Evertons games entail two totally different performances in each half.

I watched the Fiorentina v Lyon game on Tuesday, I could have been watching Everton, Fiorentina totally outplayed Lyon in the 1st half went one up then tried to defend for the whole of the 2nd half and just about hung on.

Other than the usual media cartel who talk a lot but say nothjing, I can’t recall present or former players saying anything complimentary about davey boy. I think Dunc thought him a prick and Rooney similar, anyone know different.

To Brian he hasn’t shown us that hes a 15 million pound man. He was a panic buy. He has no pace which for a box to box midfielder is vital. Moyes has done well with the likes of Arteta,Cahill,Jags,Lescott but also Beattie,AJ,Kroldrup,Davies, and arguably Yakubu haven’t done so well. Moyes has given up as he has done a good job but whatever reason we just can’t get to that next level. After Lescott left a top 5 side to go to a mid table side it would make any manager go mad. Bill Kenwright is not the only 1 to blame. He puts his arse on the line by making public appearences speaking to the press so he naturally gets the blame. We have lost our team spirit. The score on sunday with Torres will be about 2 0 without it will be more even.

I am not saying Moyes is infalliable, all I am saying is that a bit of balance is in order. Yes we’re doing shite right now, its not good enough, but given what Moyes has done over the last few years he should be giving a bit of time to set things right. However if we’re still this shite come Easter, thats a whole other matter.

Felliani is not shite, its not his fault he cost £15m, if he did cost that. He’s just not world classs and what you’d expect for £15m yet. You’d want to be seriously short sighted to think he’s a bad player, over the last 25 years of supporting Everton I’ve seen plenty of shite players come through. Felliani is head and shoulder above the likes of Mitch Ward, Claus Thomson, Tobias Linderoth, Niclas Alexanderson, Preki, Brett Angell and so on.

Sorry Brian I don’t believe I am short sighted, I just see a player who gets in the way constantly, and is constantly overrun and has ruined our most valuable players game. And come on some arguement that is comparing him with those you mentioned. Even Osman and Davies come off good against those. And that is saying something.

Moyes will never get a job at United or any Big job as he lacks the ablity to have big players in his squad. We have got to accept that. We will back players even though their poor unlike other fans we give them a chance. But i think that we have too many unpreforming players that Moyes will not get rid of.

James if you’re referring to Cahill as our MVP, he doesn’t need Fellaini to ruin his game at the moment he’s doing a decent job himself cos this season he’s looked a shadow of the player he was, with or without Fellaini, he looks to me like he’s suffering from burn out and is playing from memory
