European winning legends?

You don't have to win Europe to win Europe, but they won Europe.

Trevor Steven. And to be fair they did win the cup winners cup.

Who could forget those legendary nights against those great Fortuna Sittard and University College Dublin sides of the 80's.

When was the last time they played against 10 men for a half?

 

They've had >60 mins at Anfield against 10 men and still lost.

I'm caught between wanting them to do well for my mates but wanting them relegated because of their Internet fans.

 

As long as we beat them twice and win the league, I couldn''t give 2 shits what they do.

The Catcher has been spreading his gospel and his disciples are lapping it up over there. Comparing Jota fee to De Bruyne’s about 5 years ago! Shall we compare the Sigirdson fee to De Bruyne. No laddie? He makes me laugh does the Catcher........

Player Valuation: £70m
 
They need better squad players and Jota will be happy to be a bit part player.

Thiago is a very good signing... however it changes how they set up their midfield.

Instead of 3 workhorses, they'll have 2. If they keep the high full backs, there'll have about 6 players in attack so I can see them being very susceptible for a counter.
Yes I agree with mosr of that. I just don't see it as to groundbreaking signings. £45m quid for a reserve seems very very steep to me. I means it's just under what City paid for De Bruyne.

As for Thiago, he is a very good player. Nobody has denied that. There are legitimate questions as to whether he can;
1) Handle the physicality of the PL
2) If they amend their system (which they will likely have too) they won't lose a bit from what they did previously to accomodate him
3) That he wil be an enormous upgradeon Wijnaldum who has been very consistent for them.

They are legitmate questions. Making he ticks all of those boxes. Maybe not.

They've paid over £70m to find out though, albeit spread over future years, so it's a lot of next years budget gone too

They really dont see the irony about not being bothered about people dying now they've made a few signings and won 2 games. 

 

Apparently you're bitter if you point it out. Not sure why I'd be bitter about them beating a promoted team with 10 men 5-2.

Just under what city paid for De Bruyne. Jota is £41m and De Bruyne cost £55m.

 

Thought he was supposed to be good at maths or is that the Esk?

Fair play to Catcher, despite being painfully ignorant of the facts on any subject, he's managed to carve out a niche for himself as a supposedly reasoned commentator on all things related to us.

 

It was a bold move to deliver a SteveO level of crayon munching insanity, via the immense drag factor of a FanchesterCity masterclass in tedium, but he's made the style his own. Every time I read something he's written, I can't get mad at the biased inaccuracies, because the mental gymnastics are so impressive, and the crushing dullness of his personality has a soothing soporific effect.

 

I'd gladly watch him and (an unmedicated) Merro on a Netflix road trip.

Just saw that incident on MOTD involving that twat Rodriguez and Gibbs and Rodriguez certainly left something on Gibbs then put an extravagant roll around to highlight the stupid shove in the face obviously a red card but Rodriguez wasn't entirely blameless.

Just seen the highlights, why was Mike Dean refereeing Everton in a game that wasn't a Merseyside derby? Is this all part of the plot by the redshite powers that be?

It doesnt matter, it went in their favour so they never mention anything like that. Only the things that go against them matter.

There was a great moment in the Everton commentary where they were talking about the number nine shirt and how Everton have "always" had a great nine like "Andy Gray... Dixie Dean...". It just trailed off like that...

Ha I heard that bit too.... I was walking into the kitchen as the co-commentator cant remember who it was said they've always had a proper number 9.....

 

Dixie Dean yes one of the greats without a doubt...

Lineker spent a year there? 

Was Andy Gray a number 9? 

 

Paul Rideout (Lives off a cup final goal did fuck all else of any merit for them) 

Duncan Ferguson

Kevin Campbell

Yakubu

A 58 year old Eto'o

Andy Johnson (Everton legend for scoring against us)

.... Was Rooney a number 9?

 

Yep I'm struggling here. 

 

Calvert-Lewin is as good a proper number 9 (in the old fashioned sense) as anyone in the league to be fair which means he wont be there next year. When Ferguson took over from Silva and the ball started going into the box for him he looked dangerous. Can see him hitting 25+ this year to be fair. I think he's very good.

It was that fucking idiot Keown fawning over the shite pal only for the fact that I have proper BT I'd have looked for a different stream.

Why did he send Bilic off? He didn't assault him, he didn't swear, he wasn't offensive! Twat of a decision!

I think it was because it was on the field of play, not in the tunnel more privately. Even though under the new restrictions for COVID he couldn’t go there.
