Current results against us... in my opinion, how each game should have gone? I honestly think it?s a fine line between us gaining 13 extra points so far. This would put us 2nd... sounds crazy, but please tell me which games am I out of order with and why.
Blackburn A 0-0 +1
Wolves H 3-1 +2
Aston V. A 3-1 +2
Man Utd H 3-3 0
Newcastle H 1-1 +1
Fulham A 2-0 +2
B?Ham A 2-0 0
Liverpool H 2-0 0
Spurs A 1-1 0
Stoke H 1-1 -2
Blackpool A 4-3 +2
Bolton H 3-1 +2
Arsenal H 2-2 +1
Have I an outdated pair of blue tinted specs after watching each game? I just feel we are so close, a bit like the winter of '83 before it clicked. To say we are heading from disaster to another certainly reminds me of the opinions from that time all those years ago.
Let battle commence...

The backside is, we fail to make that possesion into clear-cut goalscoring opportunities.
And therefore Everton flatter to deceive just about every game they play. It's like having a team full of freestyle footballers, it looks kinda flash but it really is as effective as Stuart Barlow on an off-day.

He wants to try fucking supporting them.

It?s all coulda, woulda, shoulda! You definitely create your own luck by forging attacking opportunities and limiting the oppositions. In general, we haven?t carved open enough chances and like yesterday have displayed a level of disorganisation defensively, allowing other teams to create some luck against us.
I still think we will finish in a Europa place.

This season is a big missed opportunity so far. However, while all is not lost, that also applies to all of the other contenders for Europe. Anyone who puts a decent run together, as we did December to March last season, is in with a chance of top 4.
#3 Dave Lynch ? spot on.

We are currently in 13th place with 15 points.
That is a fact, and that is the reality. All of the other clubs in the Premier League could of course play the same fantasy game of "what could have been". Where would be then?
I'd guess about 13th...

I find it unbelievable that there are Evertonians who think that the dross served up by this man is acceptable.
Of course, the response is, who will we get? My reply is, for the money he is paid we should have a world class coach. I challenge anyone to come on this site and say that David Moyes is world class.

If you're expecting singing and chanting I'm afraid you've gone to the wrong ground. You want to get yourself to that shithole across the park instead. They can generate an artificial atmosphere with the best of them. Anyway, isn't continuously belting out mindless ditties all day, well, just a bit wank really?
At Goodison you usually get a partisan crowd who are on the opposition backs from the off. When the blues are on the end of a string of bad decisions from the ref, or there's a perceived injustice, then the place can become a real bear pit at times.
I'd rather watch the game than wave a flag about or hoist a scarf in the air, and I'd rather hear a raging 65-year-old screaming 'Cunt' at Cesc Fabregas than singing about how super Steven Pienaar is.

I just expected more outward support from the Team. Really enjoyed a few pints before and the craic outside, it was just as the game progressed. Maybe its an indictment of the team and those who see them regular are hacked off with it.
14 Posted 15/11/2010 at 20:51:00
Sorry you didn't enjoy it as much as you were expecting to. Some games can be like that though, especially when the team fail to get going until the last ten minutes.
15 Posted 16/11/2010 at 09:09:08
What's done is done.
By the way, we beat Stoke, and we should have expected to beat them. So suggesting a draw shows how much bollocks you are talking!
16 Posted 16/11/2010 at 09:33:51
All teams can do this, we've had our luck in those two games.
I'm bored of "we're hard luck Everton".
17 Posted 16/11/2010 at 10:43:24
There is no queue of would-be suitors anxious to tempt BB into selling up so we have to accept what we`ve got. But, at least, we`ve got a safe pair of hands in David Moyes to keep us out of real trouble!
18 Posted 16/11/2010 at 12:19:36
Moyes is the problem and he will continue to be so.
19 Posted 16/11/2010 at 16:56:03
I take it you didn't see the Utd game then. They had their first proper attack after about 34 mins and we were playing the far better football until then.
20 Posted 16/11/2010 at 17:50:18
Football can turn on very small margins, I don't think there's anything particular we're doing wrong, I just think we're just slightly off in all departments at the moment, and an extra 5% will turn draws to wins, and defeats to draws or even wins.

If we start to fall into the bottom four or five then we might get a new player or two... until then, it's ham and chips.
We are surviving on a veritable shoestring; no ambition and no attractiveness to bring in top players. Our assets consist of one or two decent youngsters and a bunch of journeymen who will become Everton legends to the blue tinted ones...
So far, our defence has well outshone our strikeforce and the creativity that Arteta once displayed has waned to a mere shadow. I'm sure that, when Ozzie and Anichebe are fit again, we will welcome them back like prodigal sons because they are no worse than some of the players on the pitch at the moment.
