After all the build up to this season, I, like a good few others, thought this was it, this was the season we would be possible Top 3. Moyes saying it's his strongest squad blah blah blah. The fixture list being kind to us with very winnable early games to get us up and running...
And now what? Highly likely we are out of the cup on Saturday... absolutley no cash to buy anyone. Our forwards... well, the word useless springs to mind. And now that lot from over the park have had a mini revival...Sod it, I am off into town tonight, go down Mathew St and get legless...

Does beating Chelsea even matter tomorrow?
The problem is money... we won't make champions league... probably won't make europe... the club has no money and seems to be selling assets whether they admit it or not. The whole thing seems pointless. Where's the money Bill?!

That was an astonishing admission of a totally inadequate preparation.
Lets not forget that this is supposedly the best squad he has ever had.
Is it Blue Bill who picks the team, puts players in wrong positions, dictates mind numbing tactics and usuallly when its far too late makes changes.
By all means if you feel the need to protest at least admit that Bill is not the only culprit.

Presumably it is "blue Bill" (aka liar) who gave Moyes the impression he would get to spend the Pienaar cash. All season Moyes said he would not sell Pienaar until last week he said it made "business sense," to get 3million for him so he could bring someone else in. He would not have sold him if he knew that the money would go to one of BK's disillusioned luvvie friends who got conned into bankrolling Bills stint as Chairman. I would like Moyes to ask "Blue Bill," what happens to the money we would have been paying Yakubu, Pienaar, Vaughan, Gosling and Agard in wages from now until June if they were still here? "

I refuse to believe that from billions of players world wide we cannot find at least one that is better than some of the crap that infests our squad.

You have put 2 and 2 together there and come up with 10!
I agree with you mate. Once again the preparation and early season form have been terrible. Another thing Moyes has failed to do is generate funds from player sales. Pienaar should have gone in the summer, as should Yobo and possibly the Yak. That lot would have generated at least £15 million, and even if he had only been given half of that to spend, we could have had a few new players in. As it stands, we got next to nothing for Pienaar, and the Yak and Yobo are depreciating in value as time goes by. We have no new players except for some Greek kid we have signed for peanuts today. The manager has simply not performed this season.
12 Posted 28/01/2011 at 22:22:52
As for the Shite, the one thing they've done right with signing Suarez is they've bought Torres replacement BEFORE they let Torres go.
Something Everton should have been a bit cuter with when letting (insert one of many names here) the likes of Yakubu, Pienaar, Vaughan.

We are not even competetive at getting loan players anymore.
Moyes has signed two youngsters-why? He doesn't give them the breaks they need in playing time. Just look at Rodwell, Duffy,Baxter etc. Are the players who are keeping these out playing well. I don't think so.
So the saga goes on. Everton have performed badly most of the season and they will continue to do so under Moyes. Maybe we will get lucky against Chelski but it won't change the sad truth. We are currently a second rate team who struggle to win against every team in the league thanks to Moyes. Where's the taxi when you need one.
17 Posted 28/01/2011 at 23:24:06
Explain to me why Moyes would sell arguably his best player if he had no intention of using the proceeds to replace him. It makes no sense.

We could go into administration.
We could go into administration and get relegated.
Even worse all this could have happened with destination kirkby on the horizon.
fuck me we're in clover at present.

Aren't all the above mentioned loan signings or prospective loans. Now correct me if I'm wrong but is our squad that fucking good (minus Pienaar, Yakubu and Vaughan) that we don't need to be chasing the likes of these. I also seem to recall Moyes mentioning Premiership experience as a must, do none of these players have enough of this for our esteemed manager.
I am a Moyes fan ( although a little frustrated by his incessant negativity) but dear god what is wrong when I and as I imagine most of you have spotted these experienced premiership players moving on the whole to lesser clubs. How long can we keep swallowing the line there isn't much out there when the activity between other clubs has been quite high this year.......
That said can't wait for tomorrow COYB lets take out the rentboys

Here's a comment on a LiverpLOL Blog:
This bid from CHELSKI HAS MADE ME FEEL SICK TO MY STOMACH,Talk about kick a club when it is down,the money clubs are like vultures picking the meat off the Bones of the once MIGHTY LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB.
Something about a transfer request from a certain Torres, late of LFC.
Let's be happy for what we have and support the boys in blue. Enjoy it while you can. Global warming might finish off the game in a few years. Maybe the Qatar games are a preparation. COYB!
24 Posted 29/01/2011 at 01:46:10
To be honest, with the exception of Vela, I don't think we could afford the wages of the players mentioned.

Moyes was backed into a corner when Pienaar said he didn't want to play in the derby, and no doubt he was getting pressure upstairs to accept the money. So although he wanted to keep him to the end of the season, his hand was forced.
I am not blaming just Moyes by the way, it's the board as well. But in my opinion, if we don't have any money then it's part of the manager's remit to generate some funds, and to be honest he has not done this - he has dug his heels in and just accepted we have no money. Watching Pienaar's contract run down has been like watching a car crash for me. I knew he wouldn't re-sign, so we should have shipped him out last summer. And as for Yobo and the Yak, if they don't feature in our plans, put them on the transfer list. Be proactive. Don't just amble along.

Looks very promising, tall and strong if the video clips are anything to go by.
