Ferguson really knows how to play on the fans

 

Somehow he has got away without any blame for how shite they have been for years yet he has been there the whole fucking time nearly,. Same with Carrick at the mancs

Funny you should say that, collectively it is certainly so however when I speak to individual bloos most of them think he should be fired into space.

It's remarkable he's convinced them he brings passion and let's the players know "what it means to play for Everton", yetnhe seems unable to get the point across while fulfilling his full time role and seems only capable of articulating this once he's temporary manager. As he's been there for so long, with so many managers, the one thing the players should never be lacking is "knowing what it means to play for Everton", yet it seems a constant criticism manager after manager.

Add to that he was happy to strong arm both Everton and Newcastle when they sold him back and forth with wanting payoffs from both

Reckons it went on for 10 minutes. I'm sure there is footage of it if it happened. Already blues jumping on the post.

Fair enough you haven’t been in here but how had you not heard he’d been sacked??

I recently got so sick of the absolute trash that passes for football journalism and stopped reading it, so here is my only real source of new information,  or if a mate brings something up in conversation.

9 jobs since 2005. Why not go to Everton for 6 months, make it 10 and make a few quid.

History of winning at Porto, Al-Ahli, Olympiacos and Shanghai SIPG though.

A “serial winner” say the Daily Mail, whose journalists clearly don’t realise that he has been approached for the Ev job (and rejected it) multiple times over the last decade. 
You don’t have to win things to be a winner, but if you do plan on winning things maybe it’s best to keep rejecting Everton.

Fair enough! I think I even saw it on the ‘normal’ tv news!

Only live TV I watch is the footie, and thats only our matches, the rest is on demand.

 

I stopped watching the news about a year ago because I was sick of the world ending.

A record of losing 11 of 20 matches, with added Joorabchian stirring the pot. Made for them. Proverbial popcorn. A Netflix mockumentary in the making.

You've got to love the tweets off Evertonians who say football is finished, corrupt and a contrived soap opera to keep the Sky/Super League 6 happy whenever Liverpool get a debatable penalty or an opposition player sent off. 

 

Weird that they never mention it whenever it happens to anyone else.

The lad on Merseyside was saying it was because previous managers wouldn't allow him to say this.

Yes, I'm sure every single previous manager was fully against the idea of inspiring the players. 

And I'm assuming this was one of the saner ones?

They have that American whopper on there aswell for comedic effect.

    • It's so galling that our licence fee pays for this fucking simpleton to write this guff.
    • Thoughts about the game and events:   The boys have been exceptional this season. We've won 2 trophies, took a 3rd to the last day after being 14 points behind them in January and have another go for big ears on Saturday.   Im pleased people who attended both cup finals had a great day out but I cant help feeling the distraction of the domestic cups have left the team running on fumes. It's only the fact this group of players dont know when they're beat that keeps them going.   Thiago has really made us tick this season but his injury \ fitness record is a big concern. He just kick the ball yesterday and his hammy(?) went 'ping' and not for the first time.   Keita isnt up to it here. He loses his man, doesnt track back enough and is too easily knocked off the ball.   Despite his detractor(s), Hendo is a leader of men and the best player to Captain this team.   Im absolutely gutted at events yesterday. My heart said we'd win the title, not city but my head said they'd do it.   We can each point to a number of League games that have cost us number 20: The lost away at Leicester despite having a pen and being on top for most of the game. The draws home and away v Spurs, the draw away at Brentford and the loss at West Ham. For me, it's the West Ham game. We allowed Alli to get bullied and at least 2 of their goals were clear and obvious errors.   But the stars aligned for city as well. I dont watch many of their games but fuck me, how they got away with that clear and obvious penalty shout at the shite is beyond me. While the shite would still have had to score the resultant pen (stop sniggering!) they'd at least have been in the conversation over the result if it had been awarded.   How many times where city made to play a Saturday 12:30 kick off after an international break or, midweek European tie? They didnt get to any cup finals that went to 120 minutes but if they had, it would have been interesting to see if they'd have been made to play on a Tuesday night immediately afterwards. Sporting integrity? Fuck right off.   I hate it in the ground when people cheer the score against Villa. Just my preference as I think it can affect the players.   Love Stevie but he can fuck right off with his 'my players gave their all' shite. No Stevie, they shit the bed at being 2-0 up, that's what they did. Conceeding 3 goals in 6 minutes, yeah, we know where that's going but there's no way a PL team should be collapsing like that.   I find it bizarre Stevie played a debutant keeper, who is so shite even the shite got rid. Martinez was said to have been a doubt for their midweek game against Villa yet played. He didnt look ropey or ill so dont understand why he didnt play yesterday. Never underestimate a defences understanding with the regular keeper in front ofthem compared to a debutant.   Would Martinez have made a difference? Who knows when you have the shite Mings in your defence. If Stevie comes calling for Joe, Jurgen should tell him to fuck off.   Why did he take Coutinho off after he scored, was he injured or something?   But it's the trend of teams that play city, isnt it? I read someone call it that ourselves, chelsea, spurs and united know how to play these twats, the rest just role over. Newcastle, pulled their tripe out against us for 93 minutes recently. Against city they conceed 5 with 3 of those bing in the last 10 minutes. Wolves yesterday, went eyeballs out with us all game yet their recent midweek game against city, conceed after 3 minutes, equalise then conceed another 4 in 90 minutes.   Speaking of Wolves, their 'fans' can fuck off. I hope no one was hurt by that flare deliberately thrown into the lower Main stand corner.   At least they wont get 6 points and a +12 goal difference on a plate next season now Burnley got relegated.   I dont think if we'd been winning yesterday and them 2 down would have made city collapse further. Sorry, just wishful thinking in my view.   But the bottom line is we went into yesterday's game depending on Villa to do us a favour. It was just too big an ask. As Jurgen said before the 19/20 season, we needed to be perfect. We were close to it but not close enough.   To win the title next season, still a big ask in my opinion, we need to be perfect. That means getting in front of city and staying there because there arent enough teams in the PL who you can rely on to take points off them when it gets to the wire.   I dont expect any other clubs' fans to be cheering for us. But I find it bizarre they cheer for city. Wonder if they'll still be doing that if city win the next 3 or 4 PL titles?
    • No, but you'd certainly see a picture of him next to Putin after winning Wimbledon. Or at least the other side of a long table.
    • Quite possibly although I’m yet to see a picture of Medvedev carrying a rifle 
    • Completely agree with this, the lad is our 3rd most expensive signing of all time and offers incredibly little, I think he is out of his depth physically in the premier league, the Thiago loss for Saturday is a huge problem and midfield is an area we really need to reinforce in the summer if we are going to have another tilt at the cup competitions (given City are likely to spend their way to the title again).   There also seem to be a billion twitter/social media weirdos who absolutely love Keita and I really don't understand why.
