I?ve just seen the latest Premier League table on Ceefax and it looks like we?ve had another disappointing season.
Looking at the ?goals against? column ? with no goals conceded for the entire season, we?ve clearly tightened up the defence. But, yet again, Moyes?s tendency to send out teams with a defensive, negative attitude is reflected in the fact that we scored NO goals at all!!! When is he going to realise that you will never win anything by drawing every game 0-0??? Yet again, the failure to sign a 20-goal-a-season striker has come back to bite us... Will he never learn?
I know some of you out there will point out that we finished above Liverpool and both Manchester clubs but look at the teams who finished above us ? Bolton and Blackburn FFS ? surely we?re better than that. Remember our motto.
Out of interest, I?m sure those Villa fans mouthing off against the appointment of Alex McLeish will be looking a little shame-faced now that he?s got them up to 2nd place and a Champion league slot. And is it just a co-incidence that the three teams beginning with W are occupying the relegation places ? just like the teams last season?
Anyway here?s looking forward to season 2012-13... and some bloody goals!

I wonder if the league have any provision in place for such a situation.

Close season really does suck if you're an Everton fan.
Displaying all the clinical signs of OCD you check all the "Usual Suspects" : Toffeeweb, News Now et al in the vain hope of some signing or at least some merest hope of a signing.
Perhaps aversion therapy can brake this habit ... anyone for red hot pokers up the ...

As an exile living in the south I've spent all day on the ale at a bbq and for a minute, you had me there.

I know that you are down under, but didn't realise you would not have had Ceefax or Teletext. I'm sure you must have an equivalent - like WallabyTV ot Dingotext.

The Close Season - also brilliant as it is the most consistent part of the year for Refereeing decisions. Mind you I am sure that there some Premier League Referees that have texted/E Mailed Linesmen/Assistants just to be sure that they haven't had any decisions to make.

Dreading Everton appearing cos it usually meant they had conceded. Some things never change.

Having said that - branch previously closed after "a small fire and other matters kept it shut for the last four years"......
Hhmmm... whats the betting Seamus comes back and has a word in Bills ear?
"Mr Kenwright, I was talking to a gentleman on Tuesday night and he said, in regard to our financial predicament....."
