I'm not sure their TW equivalent would be similar to here, the lads are rather bewildered as to how their form could drop off so dramatically. They are more sad (in the proper sense of the word) than anything else.

12 months ago, 19th in the league and embarrassed by Leicester. Stuck with the manager rather than do the easy thing.
12 months ago, justifiably admired by all due an impressive start in the top flight. Manager even touted in some quarters as a Marco Silva replacement.
Funny old game as they say.

Our "Carrah - lar" was adamant that the Liverpool player had perfectly placed his boot under the Fulham player's boot to get to the ball first even though the laws of human contact and physics would debate this was actually impossible.
VAR has actually been doing its job of late but they got that one totally wrong in my opinion.
Can we get real sports journalist back please, not ex-player pundits who are effectively supporters watching the match?

Best clip of the match so far was Herr Klopp ranting at his players in the manner of an agitated Obersturmbannfuhrer on the Eastern front.
h and yes before I forget, what a great result for us yesterday. I was especially glad for Gylfi who had a good game and got one of the coolest penalties I've seen in years.

I remember him coming on at Anfield in the cup, and having a stormer, and not even being on the bench at Spurs the following week, which is never any good for confidence either.

Although I accept it won't have helped, several Everton managers just didn't quite like something. And then we got a second opinion from RB Leipzig.
Playing well today, but that penalty the other week. Possibly falling into the had potential bucket but wasn't actually as good as the talk up or didn't have the right attitude to be consistent.

He's had so much bad press over the last couple of seasons. But he's ripping into Liverpool.
Perhaps Silva and Allardyce couldn't see what Scott Parker sees.
I accept that different managers have different views. But can you say Lookman is lazy? I don't think so.
I'll wait for the diehards to shoot me down... ðŸ˜‚

Lookman wanted to leave. He wasn't prepared to fight for his place. Good luck to him but he has gone the way of the vast majority that leave us. DOWN.

Until now. Hurrah for growth and maturity.
And applause today also for another former Blue I didn't want to see sold, future US World Cup left-back Antonee Robinson. He's playing great.

Just finished watching Fulham get at the RS. It's done and he's gone, but still shaking my head at letting Robinson go. Didn't care who came up his flank, he took em on. AND great with the ball. I guess he knew he wasn't moving Digne out and at 22-23 years old, he wanted to play now. Still, a pity.
Lookman. Never know with that youngster, but he might (finally) had a good, hard look in the mirror. We'll see.
Don't know where Palace will wind up but, boy, Hodgson has a bunch of athletes out there.

Why did he want to leave? I'll stand corrected but Unsworth always rated him.
As an aside it was a Fulham penalty, and the totally biased Carragher said it wasn't before the in depth analysis. Even then still a penalty in my opinion!

And as we speak, Arsenal go a goal down. Aubameyang own-goal.

Not where we want to be if he was our first choice, but I would definitely have him in the squad. He's good and is committed and that is good enough for me to have as backup, but that's where I see him.
Watching the events at the Emirates unfold. Not going well for Mikel unfortunately. A very unforgiving bunch too. They drove out their most successful manager ever so I do fear for him.

Arteta started his Arsenal regime playing a style very similar to Everton yesterday, and if you don't get results when you play a defensive game, then confidence wilts, and quite possibly, the blame game might also begin now for little Mickey...

41 Posted 13/12/2020 at 21:01:18
But not today, he was strong and positive all game. The kid also looks to be a very good athlete, which is also half the battle in the modern game.
42 Posted 13/12/2020 at 21:09:30
Well done, Burnley.
43 Posted 13/12/2020 at 21:15:17
And the trouble is, he has no track record that says he'll turn it around. Good for us, because it puts one of the traditional big 6 on the back foot. All to play for.
44 Posted 13/12/2020 at 21:28:31
Can't wait for next week when he comes to Goodison, and we get him and Mikel the sack, like we did with Moyes COYB
45 Posted 13/12/2020 at 21:33:10
Do you think he will be in charge by next week?
Arsenal's worst start since I can't remember.

47 Posted 13/12/2020 at 21:41:24
Big week coming up for us.
I'd take 4 points by this time next week. Despite a crap run of results we're only 5 off the top - and with injuries to key players.
Top 6 is going to be tight this season. It's still on.
Kunal - if our charity day is not next week, Boxing Day looks a dead cert.

Anyway, that he's doing the business with Fulham comes as no surprise to Americans. It's why Gaynes was so pissed off in here when we sold him. But he wasn't bumping Digne out of that position, so he moved on.
