One of my bloo mates has just compared Rodriguez to City signing Robinho. Putting down a marker and putting Everton on the map

 

I almost had a coronary trying not to laugh in his face

Do you know what, if they weren't such bellends you'd be genuinely happy for them to be excited about a signing but they can never accept it as just that. It always has to be the best ever, better than ours, a statement, lad, or causing us to lose connection to our heads. Must be horrible to feel the need to act like that.

Does Rodriguez know he’s signing for Everton in the City of Liverpool and not Liverpool FC?

I wondered if they'd blurred the lines a little, using the "lost in translation" line by telling him he'd be playing IN Liverpool, not actually FOR Liverpool.

He's in for a shock when he see their shack.

Truffles and Caviar? Brilliant. 
 

You mean a luxury item that went out of date 6 years ago and despite Harrods best attempts to get shot of it, it’s been hanging around the back of the fridge festering like something in Ramsey Kitchen Nightmares and they are only people daft enough to still order it?

If a person from a council estate buys box of Ferrero Rocher's, they still live on a council estate.

 

I grew up one one so not knocking anyone who is.

Yeah, but if they had caviar I'd be pretty sure their heads would fall off next door.

and they also think every single time that it will improve them, despite history telling us it doesn't. 

Great, isn't it?

But we've been told clubs are broke due to covid so surely these signings won't be happening. I fully expect the echo to be tweeting that Everton are perplexed at stores of them signing players due to the impact of covid on them

Everton who have a total revenue of 188m and spent 160m of that on wages....

The likes of Bolasie, Bernard, Moise Kean, Sigurdsson, Walcott, iwobi, Pickford etc aren't going to give up their big wages to go elsewhere. Weirdly Bernard is their highest earner. The three new players will all be on a decent wage as well. 

 

Bolassie is on 75 grand a week according to my blue mate. He will see his contract out rather than play in Greece, Portugal or Belgium for about a tenth of that.

Looking at their finances they should be absolutely broke

    • These aren't Maribor. I don't think we can play mostly backups against them and expect an easy game. They're a giant side with lots of pace, they could easily give us trouble. Especially with no fans at Anfield which cuts out some of the intimidation and pressure factor.
    • Antonio did a hammy v Citeh. Hopefully he's missing as he's usually peak Drogba against us.
    • With the Sadio offside thing, he'd made a burst into the middle just before and the ball never came to him. Normally when we've recycled possession from those situations, we look to switch the play across the pitch and stretch the opposition. That allows our forwards the opportunity to both get back onside and look for space. Thiago sees things very early, so Sadio received a through-ball he wouldn't otherwise expect to get. It's that adjustment our players will learn to make.   As for Sheffield United, Wilder uses his back three differently to other managers who play with that system. In Wilder's system, they don't look for the wing backs immediately. Instead, one of the two wide defenders in the 3 will carry the ball into midfield, lay it off to a midfielder and get it back before finding the wing back. While this is happening, the midfielder on that side will drop back to cover the space left so the defender can carry on into midfield. The problem for an opposition player when dealing with it is that they can't track both players who've switched positions. Combine thas aspect with Sheffield United's directness and, if they are on their game, it can make it look like the opposition midfielders are being overrun and/or not tracking runners.   They've had a tough start to the season but I actually admire Chris Wilder for trying something tactically different when it would be easy to go all Sam Allardyce and play shit-on-a-stick POMOball with a heavy emphasis on set-pieces.
    • But this is my point. The chances of it being level when you make decisions to millimetres are almost zero. There should be virtually no offsides seen as level, because they won't be level. But we don't have the technology to deem if it's within millimeters. We don't even have the technology to show the moment the ball left the foot. They have software that even from the inaccurate frame chosen then has quite a margin of error depending on the angle of the camera. So they absolutely do not have the technology to do offside as implemented today. If you're saying they can freeze a frame and then let a computer make a best guess, fair enough they can, but then what's the point of that? The software makers themselves say it can't possibly be accurate like the cricket and the goal line as they don't have control of the camera location and prior knowledge to where the decision will be made. It's complete fucking nonsense. If they were to calculate a maximum margin of error and then go with the position plus the margin, then fair enough i could accept that and if it's a millimetre offside even accounting for the VAR and his potential poor positioning of the mark, then with a built in margin of whatever, it doesn't seem unjust.   Bottom line to me is level is effectively gone if the measurement is a frozen frame and we're happy to go to millimeters - level is a concept from a linesman needing to simultaneously in real time with the naked eye watch the ball being struck and if the forward has broken the line. But we don't have the technology to measure to the level of accuracy required for what they're delivering today - but I can see there could be a halfway house between watching a real time situation where a person is expected to look at 2 places at once and the utter shite we have today.
