  1. Did Wednesday not happen? As I recall, that was when United got beaten by Burnley and United fans were making death threats at the game against Ed Woodward. I thought you'd spread yourself on that.

    Amazing that we could as a club be considered to have forgotten Heysel. If you go to the home page of our website and scroll down there's a big banner link to details of Heysel. You can't miss it, it's right next to one about Hillsborough.

    Everton (H) FA Cup - 05/01/2020 - 16:01

    Clive Thomas, of blessed memory. A couple of years before I finished teaching in 2013, I had a lad in one of my 6th form classes who was a Blue. Not unusual if I'd been teaching in North Wales, but as I was working in London, he stuck out like a sore thumb. Naturally, I quizzed him as to the source of this affliction and he put the blame squarely on his dad. I mentioned Clive Thomas' name to check on his credentials and was regaled with chapter and verse about the Blues had been robbed of Wembley glory in 1977 etc. I did wonder about mentioning Collina's name but thought better of it.

    Everton (H) FA Cup - 05/01/2020 - 16:01

    There've been some good 'uns, Rushie's 4 at Badison, clinching the double at Wembley and my personal favourite, the Sandy Brown derby, which was a bit like yesterday as the Blues were favourites and came a spectaculat cropper. I was at school at the time and recall that many of my Evertonian classmates were mysteriously off sick on the Monday. It will be interesting to see the attendance stats from Merseyside schools today.

    Liverpool 1 Wolves 0 (Dec 29 2019)

    Great report as ever, Dave. I've read recently that Taylor is supposed to be our second best ref after Oliver. What does that say about the rest of them? This is the man who missed the most obvious penalty in the Spurs v Chelsea game and had to be helped out by VAR. After that he should have been dropped but instead continues to be appointed to big games. I liked Wolves when I saw them in their promotion season at Brentford. A very good team, well coached and playing good football. The left back, Vinagre, who impressed you, played really well in that game and I'm surprised that he hasn't featured more often. One to keep an eye on, I think. Wolves' fans though.....

    Shittest ref?

    Definitely thought he didn't want to give us anything in the second half today in case Wolves exploded. If these two are bad where does that leave Kevin Frien and Lee Mason? Watched Craig Pawson ref the Arsenal v Chelsea and he was woeful, too.

    Premier League Round Up (Nov 30 - Dec 5 2019)

    You mentioned how Watford don't hesitate to fire managers. Arsenal are a great example of what happens when you don't. For about 3 years there Wenger was the story and the players more or less got a pass when there was a bad result. Emery wasn't able to do anything with them so maybe now belatedly, the spotlight will fall on the players and just how ordinary they are.
  8. Jota signing for Brentford (he's the hirsute one), now of Villa.

    Liverpool 2 Brighton 1 (Nov 30 2019)

    The season Rodgers complained about Lee Mason reffing us against City, the next game was Chelsea away. Webb reffed it and basically punished Rodgers for complaining about Mason. E'too took Hendo out knee high in the first minute, as clear a red card as you could see but I don't think he was even booked. E'too went on to score the winner, and to make sure we lost, Webb denied us two blatant penalties. Shocking performance, but Webb wasn't punished, instead he was the FA's referee at the World Cup. The reverse fixture against Chelsea, the infamous Gerrard slip game was refereed by Atkinson who allowed Chelsea to waste time from the first minute before finally booking Ashley Cole with about 5 minutes to go. Riley won't do anything against his fellow Yorkshireman, as he loves getting them on the PL list. Pawson, the wretched Bobby Madley were two.

    Too much red in a couple of those flags, I'm surprised they're allowed in the ground.

    Cover Versions that Beat the Originals

    Not a cover version, as this is the original as recorded in the sessions for the Nebraska album, but radically different from the better known version and a better take on the song, I think.

    What's Alan Stubbs doing these days?

    Men at Work might have done it but I think this is the original.

    Do they still supply cushions at Goodison? It used to be the thing in the day to throw them at their players when they were leaving the pitch after another shocking display.

    Nice take on The Cars classic. The band seem to be having a lot of fun doing it.
