It?s Saturday morning, Moysie?s tucking into his porridge (with heaps of salt ? just too maintain that puckered facial expression 24/7) and he suddenly starts choking. He?s at death?s door and looking into that tunnel of bright light when his missus smacks him with a rolling pin and he comes to.
Energised by his brush with death and with a new lease of life he decides to take each day as it comes and to be positive in all he does from now on.
He skips down to meet the players, waving the teamsheet for the Chelski game gaily over his head. There are gasps as he reads it out: Jags in for Jonny Rotten, Becks up front with Bily in the hole and he mutters something about ?sexy football.? Big Vic is sadly unavailable, having been loaned out to a feeder club in Kazakhstan for the next 20 years.
And so to the game: we run them ragged with Bily supplying killer through balls for Becks to run on to and Seamus giving Cole the run around.
2 ? 0 up after an hour, then Moyes replaces the tiring Bily with Timmy who pops another in for good measure. There has been a bit of trouble though when a mis-hit ball skews off sideways and catches the Ladyboy squarely in the mush, driving his lipstick right up his nostril. Luckily it misses his brain by a yard.
It?s Sunday morning, I wake up and read the press reports and ......

And what makes you think Baxter would work on the left? I'm all for giving the young lads a run, but where they are comfortable, confident. I've not seen much of him except the few cameos in the 1st team but he doesn't look a left-sided player to me. Correct me if I'm wrong and he tears reserves teams apart from the left wing.
Why not our secret French weapon?

Lined up for the usual pre-match ritual, our boys cannot contain their enthusiasm and give an impromptu performance of Riverdance. It had the crowd roaring it delight. Taking advantage of the moment, they do a lap of honour and once again, the crowd roars its approval.
Then the Referee blew his whistle to start the game.

I played football with a couple of Chelsea season ticketers last night, and we were bickering over who's team was worse. I assured them Everton were as shit as I've seen in the last 8 years or so, and will certainly lose tomorrow if we play the way we did at Bolton.
My dream is that Anichebe doesn't start the game (at least not up front anyway).

See Davey hop and skip along waving his teamsheet on pink scented paper. Davey's a fop, do you know what a fop is, he wears a purple crushed velvet cat suit, black shiny thigh long boots and a big floppy sun hat with a silk neckerchief.
Mrs Bickerdyke there pouring the tea out and asks Davey, "Why don't you try playing Bily in the hole behind the front two, he could pick up any knocked down balls and play them through for the two strikers creating some good chances. After I've finished here I'll try to catch the last ten minutes."
After the 4-0 win Davey arrives home to Mrs Davey, who asks, "Well, how did it go?"
"Brilliant thanks to Mrs Bickerdyke" says Davey, "She said I should put one in the hole for extra penetration and get more use out of the two big ones out front, we even made good use of the loose balls ? she came just as the last one was going in."
See Mr's Davey's face go the same colour as Davey's suit, Run Davey Run

If you think putting Cahill sub and playing Bily in his position is they key however you need to book a check up.

I will leave the team selection to Moyes, and just hope the players show more passion and desire than last week, and wear the shirt with real pride. As for Ladyboy, well he will be in the stand, so we will just have to worry about the usual twosome.
With 6,000 fans travelling down, if that cannot get some proper response from the players, then we will be in trouble.

Yes, we've a chance but the problem is we don't know which team turns up, the one winning at City or the one losing at Bolton.

When oh when is Marvin going to make an appearance???
Surely he is better than what we have? Oh how we miss Sheedy!

Nothing wrong in differing opinions. And I'd be as pleased as you if you were right.
