Questions and Answers.

I was reading on toffeeweb a few days ago about arranging interviews with people from the club. This is no longer done as Michael Kenrick pointed out, we all too predictably know the answer to some questions.

Moving on, after looking at the Liverpool Echo Website. I see that a couple a Journalists (Greg O'Keeffe & David Prentice) from the local paper will be doing an online questions on answers forum.

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/everton-fc/everton-fc-news//tm_headline=everton-fc-live-blog-greg-o-keeffe-and-david-prentice-answer-your-questions%26method=full%26objectid=27319819%26siteid=100252-name_page.html

After recent results and lack of direction now evident on and off the field, what I'm suggesting is that we collectively list out our questions (sensibly - otherwise they won't get answered) below and present them forward, or possibly source the best questions then present them for comment of the journo types. (Maybe something to include on the forums is the thumbs up thumbs down tab like the one on the OS, if this is seen as a improvement). Who knows it may give the Echo something better to put on it's back pages than a rallying cry from the usual suspects.

I'll be doing my best to log on around that time.

So come on let's be hearing you.

The questions they choose to answer will be obvious. The Echo is nothing more than the club's official mouth piece. Waste of time all round.

Here's one: Why do we persist with the lone striker when it's obvious it doesn't work?

And what advantage does the 4-5-1 or 5-4-1 system have over the 4-4-2?

Another: Why do we persist in players being played out of position? Seeing as this is the strongest squad we've had in a long time.

"And what advantage does the 4-5-1 or 5-4-1 system have over the 4-4-2?"

The five in midfield covers over the fact that we haven't got four good enough midfielder to allow us to have a 4-4-2 and we don't have 2 fit forwards (Saha crocked, Yak unfit, Anichebe (ha forward) crocked, Vaughan (soon to be crocked on loan to Palace)

@ Tony 12.
If only he could be that honest.
So how about. After nearly 10 years in charge, how come we don't have a midfield good enough to play 442.
And, is it true you and Round are useless bastards when it comes to tactics.

I appreciate the hard work that must go in to running such a historic football club such as Everton and I appreciate that unless results are positive after the final whistle has blown the manager will undoubtedly get the blame, for he is the one who has picked the team. We all know deep down that without a huge investment in our great club we will never achieve higher than 4th place in the league, so the question is 'who would win in a fight between the Dalai Lama and the Pope?'

It is apparent that the side is severely lacking a striker with pace at the moment. Saha can not be depended on to stay fit for a sustained period of time. Moyes has said that Yakubu wanted to leave during the summer and was not fit. Beckford is completely untried at this level. And Anichebe had been moved out wide and was known to not be fit during the summer. So knowing all of this, how the fuck could David Moyes have sent James Vaughan out on loan only to watch him score a hat trick for his new side?
