Today's game is off due to a frozen water supply at Goodison Park!
I had to work yesterday with a bad hangover and my Dad has been taken into hospital and may require surgery!
Merry Fuckin' Christmas!

Prem status, pitch fit and a few burst pipes stop the game!

Only for the burst pipes, the game was going ahead.

Moyes is playing Hibbo as lone striker?????
10 Posted 26/12/2010 at 14:38:25
Lack of investment in the stadium is the problem. Well racked off, I look forward to this fixture home and away every year.

I know we don't have much in the way of funds at the club, but lagging cannot cost that much, maybe we could get some on loan.
16 Posted 26/12/2010 at 15:45:41
As for the frozen pipes situation, I was in B & Q recently and they stocked this wonderful invention called pipe lagging, apparently you wrap this around the pipes to prevent freezing.
Maybe we cannot aford it, can we get some on loan?
17 Posted 26/12/2010 at 16:00:27
Mabe it's a ploy to get Jags fit.

Ian Ross clearly feels keenly, as I suggest his bosses also do, the loss of Desperation Kirkby. His remarks were childish, and don't forget he is the spokesperson for our club. Shame on him.

I can't think of anything in recent years, I seem to recall a League Cup tie in the early 1980s being called off due to snow, but can't recall anything for certain. Any 'stattos' know?
29 Posted 26/12/2010 at 20:08:06
It's a blessing I reckon and will give our wounded players a bit of extra convalescence... Also, WHU will only have two days to prepare.
Our away form should be good enough so long as they have kept the Yak mince pie free and Arteta away from the Rioja... CHEERS!!

I agree, Gareth, if there is no real investment in Goodison at such a basic level, it IS embarrassing. If soft bollocks had found a relatively small £30M, which I believe was the required sum for Kings Dock, we'd have had a modern stadium now. And there'd be no need for Ross's pathetic comments.
34 Posted 26/12/2010 at 22:35:21
It is all BK's fault that Merseyside is experiencing abnormally cold weather. Not having the odd £30 million in his back pocket was also his fault and, but for a suggestion from his wife, we would not have Davy Moyes as manager.
35 Posted 27/12/2010 at 01:18:01
Please just shut the fuck up you are all supposed to be Everton Supporters, if you dont support the chairman the manager or the team what are you supporting?
36 Posted 27/12/2010 at 01:33:56
It's always the little things that piss people off the most, because little things, by their nature, can, with a bit of attention to detail and the right attitude, be prevented.
The devil is in the detail. The looking after the pennies and the pounds take care of them selves.
Upgrading Goodison is not about footprint, infrastructure, transport, mega bucks. It's about stainless steel, copper, porcelain tiles. Admittedly a bit more than your Sarah Beeney kitchen and bathroom renno, but building the Emirates on a greenfield site it ain't.
It's not can't but won't.
Pipe lagging, pies, Pienaar's contract or pursuing investment, contrary to what the short sighted say... IT IS HIS FAULT, the buck stops with Bill.
37 Posted 27/12/2010 at 02:00:52
If I dont like something, I would never buy it, so is there anything you like about Everton?
38 Posted 27/12/2010 at 02:10:26
Don't you Derek?
39 Posted 27/12/2010 at 07:19:14
If he doesn't actually go and lag the pipes himself he should know a man who could and if he is already employed he'd better have a bloody good excuse for this fuck up. He or Bill has cost us the difference in cash between a near holiday full house and the average gate, say 5000 x £30 = £150k, that's a lorra lorra plumbers, even at their rates.
Peter and Bill, 2 wrongs don't make a right, more like Bill and Ben.
Bill's well documented minuses, not to mention the cash cost of the DK debacle, FAR out weight the 'good' points.
Yes, I know it's extra cold and accidents do happen but burst pipes should be a thing of the past, especially in a multi-million pound business, we may call her the Old Lady but this is not some Old Lady's house around the corner that has not been touched since she moved in in 1963 with no insulation and lead pipes.
We are in N Liverpool, not South Liverpool. It's Goodison Park not Holly Park (no offence meant, I used to be a member and BTW more than a few management similarities).
40 Posted 27/12/2010 at 08:20:31
No more home games before I return back to Australia... such is life, eh? Least I got to the ground and got some pics etc. and of course I bought more than a few things from the merchandise store....
41 Posted 27/12/2010 at 09:59:16
When you're at the ground, can you do a bit of pipe lagging while you're there?
42 Posted 27/12/2010 at 11:10:01
Ian Ross should be another shameful name fucked off from this club along with Billy Bullshitter for his comments, the guy is a prick.
43 Posted 27/12/2010 at 12:37:41
All I got for Xmas was a two-piece friggin jigsaw puzzle. And I've got to send it back because there's no picture on the box...
44 Posted 27/12/2010 at 14:28:48
The club needs to get its act together, it really does.
45 Posted 27/12/2010 at 14:32:22
The match was eventually played early February and ended 2-2 with a certain Olivier Dacourt equalising from 25 yards late on as Paul Gerrard let it slip through his grasp.
Ian Ross: Shame on you. Modern plumbing isn't always up to much so who is to say it wouldn't have happened at Tesco's cheapjack flatpack stadium?
Some others blaming the Club, but it has been much colder than usual for longer and if it hasn't happened before I guess you'd think twice at lagging 2 MILES of pipes if it didn't seem necessary. Will make them fresher for Upton Park... I hope!! :)
46 Posted 27/12/2010 at 14:40:34
Interesting rumour that one. Who's your source? Or was it someone on the sauce in a pub?
Personally, I don't believe it as you would have heard about it on October 30!!! You couldn't keep that quiet for 2 months. And Everton are not that skint. Not rolling in it, but with nigh on £100M due in this year it'll be a long time before we do a Portsmouth.
47 Posted 27/12/2010 at 14:44:25
Have you by any chance been schooled in the art of sycophancy by the one and only Richard Dodd? You sound like the ToffeeWeb version of Waylon Smithers with Kenwright as your very own Mr Burns.
Ian Ross: "The game's been called off due to easily foreseen and preventable circumstances sir, possibly arising from your penny pinching ways. This presents us with a perfect opportunity for petty point scoring over those who dared doubt the wisdom of destination Kirkby."
Simon Baines: "Amazing adaptability under pressure sir".

We could play tit-for-tat "Google this then" ? but why should I? Me granny always said... 'Never argue with fools in public as the bystanders won't be able to tell the difference.'
