*Shakes head* Everton again.

Oh, the beauty of the autopsy on their performance on GOT. Watching some of them struggle to have to ‘big up’ our fringe players and kids just to excuse their failings is hilarious, considering they’d normally dismissing them as shit who wouldn’t get near their team.

They will continue to fail if they use us as a yardstick. They have to look into their own club and sort themselves out before they can improve. If they stay as deluded as they are currently then down is the only way.

They need to rebuild from scratch, bad times ahead I think.

 

When are their losses to be reported?

 

 

Do you fear for them? That’s the true measure of how fucked they are.

Director of football Marcel Brands held a meeting with angry Everton fans who turned up at the training ground on Monday to confront players in aftermath of Liverpool defeat. 
 

“They asked security to bring the players out and, when that request was refused, it was suggested that more fans could be mobilised to turn up at the training complex and stage a blockade, highlighting the toxic nature of the fall-out from the humiliating loss.”
 

 

 

I’m trying to eat my lunch but I can’t chew as my grin is far too wide. Oh that and the lidocaine.

Let's hope they stay deluded then.

I'm sure I read they were to be published on the 7th Jan, but clearly that isn't true. Their AGM according to Google is Tuesday, so I'm guessing it has to be then by the latest.

Turning up to the training ground demanding to see the players. They’ve been watching too much Italian football.

Senior Everton players fired back at Ferguson after he read the riot act at Anfield
 
By Patrick Boyland and Greg O'Keeffe Jan 7, 2020 
 

Duncan Ferguson closed the away changing room door at Anfield on Sunday evening and let rip.
Enraged by what is already being talked about as the worst 45 minutes Everton have mustered in a Merseyside derby in modern history, the Scot began dishing out some home truths.
The players, understandably, were still bursting with anger and emotion. Captain Seamus Coleman and defender Mason Holgate had been videoed arguing with a gloating Liverpool supporter as they made their way down the tunnel minutes before.

As Ferguson read the riot act, some fired back.

Despite being part of a full-strength Everton side which had just lost to a starting XI not far from being Liverpool’s under-23 team, some senior players insisted they had given their all during the second half.
Ferguson’s tirade was met with an element of defiance, with some strongly disputing the allegation they had thrown in the towel in the last 45 minutes at Anfield. Instead, these individuals chose to blame the setup and tactics for the crushing defeat.

There is already a feeling in some quarters that Carlo Ancelotti’s style is limiting the impact of certain players, even if most have found the experience of working with a manager of his status to be inspiring.
“It’s hard for individuals to help the team as they cannot keep the ball and play three or four passes to each other. They are playing bad football,” a source close to the first team told The Athletic.
Ancelotti broke with his usual routine of keeping his powder dry immediately after games and also headed to the dressing room at Anfield to let the players know he was not impressed. But it was the 25 minutes alone with assistant manager Ferguson that best illustrates the problems facing Everton.

The players’ defiant stance left Everton’s new coaching staff stunned. Ancelotti, away from his composed and cool demeanor in front of the cameras, was understood to be shocked at how bad some of the displays were from senior players. And after such a humiliating and embarrassing display for Everton’s supporters, the hubris from some of their highest-paid performers must be a worrying sign.
In some cases, the finger is being pointed at the recruitment failings of the past. “Bad choices on new players and maybe managers has cost Everton a lot of money,” the source added. “They need some speed and creativity in the team.”

Another insider told The Athletic that Everton were being still being undermined by a squad lacking in “quality and depth”. But until Ancelotti can have any influence over new signings he will have to work with the same group of players that so obviously under-performed under Marco Silva, improving morale and processes slowly over time.
The hangover from previous failed regimes lingers, rearing its ugly head in pressure situations such as the one on Sunday at Anfield, and is said to be having an influence on the squad’s receptiveness to new ideas.

The stylistic shift from Silva to Ancelotti is palpable, while certain members of the squad will also have been present for the markedly different methods of Sam Allardyce and Ronald Koeman.
The way in which Everton have moved between styles so regularly has created an element of doubt for the players in terms of understanding the club’s direction of travel on and off the pitch. Some players have had to face up to drastically different briefs.

“Who on earth goes from Big Sam to Marco Silva and then from Silva to Ancelotti?” said another source. “When players don’t trust decisions and direction from management, they get frustrated and lose respect. When that happens, players look at all management as the same thing, from a new manager to ownership.”
Everton undoubtedly pulled off a coup in appointing Ancelotti. It is a move that could yet fulfil owner Farhad Moshiri’s dream of returning the club to the elite.
But after so much upheaval, poor recruitment and several destabilising set-backs, those expecting a quick fix are likely to be sorely disappointed.

Either this is some taxi driver-grade bullshit but somebody's taken the time to write it as a call to arms, or it's true that some lids have been threatening to set the firm on the players' cars because Liverpool are winning stuff and they aren't.

 

One way or another, this is absolutely fucking glorious.

I like the way Delph has started saying lad and spelling "were" as "where". Two thick bastard scally traits.

We've tipped them over the edge. We are a couple of results away from the launch of "Real Everton FC" by a bunch of scallys in blue umbro tops
