Theo Walcott will be absent for at least four weeks after undergoing abdominal surgery. Andre Gomes also has a minor issue that will prevent him from training until next week. Everton already have Yerry Mina and Jean-Philippe Gbamin injured.
 

 

We are playing Blackburn at Anfield today. Not sure they have a game planned before they play us. 

 

Gbamin has been injured since he signed for them. One meff on GOT wanted the season voided as it would end players careers playing after such a long lay off. Funny how it's only Everton players getting injured

Surely if the season was voided then the lay off would be even longer. Of course he would have an answer to this, probably along the lines of ‘redshite merrrrderin bastards’ or some other well thought out reply.

Another question for all you locals about the lovable neighbours. What do the Bloos in-real-life think of Goodison? On the one hand they talk worshipfully about The Old Lady and all the firsts, but on the other hand they've spent an entire generation bigging up any and every half-baked proposal to leave. Is there any attachment to the place?

To anyone else especially us red-shite its the most intimidating ground in the world, the first ground to have... (insert 3000 of the most pointless facts ever) and far better than our soulless lego manufactured stadium full of Norwegian wools.

 

Between themselves its a lower tier ground and they can't wait for Bramley Moore to be built to put them right back on their rightful throne. "Everton aren't we"

They just go on about how great an atmosphere it generates and talk about "Goodison under the lights" for the night games. Even though their only really famous night games are a 4-4 draw with us and the Bayern Munich game in 85.

 

There's more of a myth regarding the atmosphere there than the myth they talk about Anfield having a great atmosphere. I think they associate a great atmosphere with a crumbling stadium that is not far off some of the ones you would see in Argentina.  

 

As the ground is not like anything else in the Premier League due to a lot of grounds being modernised they mistakenly see this as it being intimidating and unsettling the opposition players with the Buckley Hill style away changing rooms.  The love of Goodison is more nostalgic rather than anything it creates modern day. 

 

The changing rooms and facilities are outdated by about 30 years. The have a small corporate section behind the managers bench but a lot of the corporate stuff they do in pubs over the road or nearby. They need to move because of this as there's no scope to expand those facilities. Their matchday revenue only amounts to £14m a season.

 

The away section is probably the worst in the league along with Palace and the Anfield road end. That stand is almost like a relic and travelling back in time. If you look at photos from the 80s onwards, apart from the park end the ground looks exactly the same. 

 

I'm sure a lot of them are attached to it as it is where they have grown up watching their team but a few of them are realistic enough to know that the longer they stay there the further they will be left behind which is why they want to move all the time.

Put yourself in their shoes.

 

If you’d been going to goodison for decades with your mates to watch the team you love - even though you know it’s a shithole and the majority of the time you’ve spent there has been watching rubbish and jeering at least as often as cheering - you’d have a fondness for the place.

 

shit places can still mean a lot to us, that’s what sentimentality is.

 

but, while it has this sentimentality, it’s still a shot hole and you know that and so want something nicer and shinier.

 

their feeling of fondness for a place they’ve been attached to for so long is understandable and reasonable. Their desire for something new and better is, too.

 

all the fluff around ‘banks of the royal blue Mersey’ and ‘rightful place’ is neither here nor there.

To be fair, some of them are as attached to woodison as we are to Anfield. Ive been to derbies where there's been a great atmosphere there, none of the absolute bile you get at games now. Cant speak for any other games because I dont go to them.

 

I still cant get my head around why they dont simply develop the Park End again. They could double the size of the stand and join into the Bullens. It would save them a shit load of money and even more heart ache over a stadium that wont get built. Still, up to them.

Ancelotti, when about 5 of them turn up for training.

Why have their staff and players had to take pay cuts and deferrals if uncle usamonov or whatever he’s called is money laundering, sorry funding their club?

They keep coming up with more outlandish theories about how he will bypass FFP regulations by creating dodgy sponsorship deals even though they didnt use one of his companies to sponsor their shirts. 

 

Moshiri is a major shareholder in USM, Usmanovs company who sponsor the training ground but they seem to believe he's lurking in the shadows waiting to piss a fortune down a black hole.

 

What's really surprising is that the moral guardians of the game, supporters of FC class and dignity high horse are perfectly ok with the club cheating FFP regulations by wanting him to do that.

They don’t do self-awareness, do they?

 

Bit like arranging protests for BLM.   

 

Everton fans don't have to do jackshit, there's enough of ours going to show up.   One of the many reasons it shouldn't be back.

Typical angry leftie, with his head so far up his arse, ignoring facts.   Enjoying the tory government that won't be changing any time soon?    Cause I'm fucking not.

Given that we will be Premier League Champions, are European Champios still, World Champions. We have about 6 of the most valuable players in World Football, but we are in a far worse position than the Blues, whilst the Blues are bankrolled by 2 billionaires that are getting even richer through this crisis, we’re Royally fucked. Deeply worrying.Deeply.

Player Valuation: £70m
Think this reflects both clubs owners businesses, FSGs entire business portfolio has been cut of income for three months, they will have lost hundreds of millions collectively already... Metalloinvest and Megafon arent listed but their competitors havent been badly damaged by the virus
Yes I mean I've tried to keep the focus on the two clubs there. But yes it's hard to not put the ownership into the picture. USM, Moshiri, Usmanov etc are all earning billions from this, and will continue too. They have very diverse, and fundamentally just much richer portfolio's. They also likely have more tangible assets, (be it gas, oil or machinery) that will be available after this.

FSG's wealth is almost entirely based upon sports teams. That is extremely volatile, and has taken a massive plunge. It may well be that the value of the assets they have is worth less than the liabilities they have. A lot of their implied wealth will be based upon crazy projections of what say Liverpool is worth 2bn. Id rather have 2bn worth of gas, than a football club showing that.

You add in America is a pretty horrific market to be centred in currently, with a maniac in charge who is going to take increasingly short term decisions that benefit himself, but burden the US market in the medium term.

If FSG get in trouble, they will just start selling players from Liverpool.

When it's all factored in, they are in a far worse position than us.
