Tuesday night and Wednesday morning I couldn’t read the papers listen to Talksport or watch Sky Sports as I was sick to death (and jealous) of hearing about Spurs’ brilliant comeback or Super City demolishing Basel!
Onto Wednesday night and Thursday morning, you couldn’t escape the media’s love in with Liverpool slamming Porto, how Klopp’s brand of football is so wonderful to watch, and how Salah is the best signing ever etc, etc! I’ve never listened to so much Radio 2 and watched my missus' programmes on tele!!
Onto Friday and TalkSport starts previewing this weekend’s FA Cup games!! For fuck's sake!!!
Onto my point: have Everton ever been so irrelevant? Out of the cups, nowhere in the league and we’re not even in a relegation battle, unlike 10 clubs below us! All the while this is going on, the group of multi-millionaire flops are on holiday in Dubai! The mind boggles!
I wish I didn’t care but it’s so frustrating listening and watching other teams' success! Sorry for such a negative posting but I’m sure lots of us feel the same! We are so irrelevant!

This season seems far more painful because of the increased expectations which began to build following the early summer transfers etc but those expectations were crushed perhaps even before the Premier League season kicked off.
As for what other clubs are doing, there's no point in looking on wistfully at their exploits as their success doesn't make Everton's season worse. If Everton don't perform, that's enough to depress me without having to feel jealous of other clubs' successes.
Concentrate on what the Toffees do it may not make you any happier but it will save you a bit of angst. 23 years without a trophy says we may have been irrelevant for quite a long time in truth.

I know how you feel but just to put it in context, can you name all the quarter-finalists from last season's Champions League and FA Cup without having to look it up?

The club lost its way years ago in terms of board leadership. Rays of hope and some bright light on the horizon very soon, I hope.

Rather have the emotion of looking forward to us playing even knowing we're likely getting spanked.

Last season, we were nailed-on for 7th for months. Wasn't getting better or worse. We weren't winning anything.
This season, we're again out of everything and even our manager is talking about writing the season off.
Individual wins will feel good but there's really nothing to get too excited about. Does our next game mean that much in any real context?
Maybe goes some way to explaining the apathy shown on the pitch at times. We're a compete irrelevance.

But we've even become irrelevant with our history. The media bang on about the 1960s and talk about the great managers like Busby, Revie, Shankly and Nicholson but never refer to Catterick who won more or less the same amount of trophies at the time.
It is up to us fans â€“ and the team â€“ to remind people and the stupid, lazy and myopic media that we are relevant. I think us fans are doing our bestâ€¦over to you, Team EFC!!

Another poor decision from the lamentable Bobby Madley.

I consider Alli to be typical of what is wrong with top level English football.
That was a nailed on penalty though mate.

We have much to thank Muddler Moshiri for, haven't we, guys?
