    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Don't want to be pedantic, but Real qualified as winners from the year before. But then again that's our fault cos EUFA changed the rules in 2005 just for us.

    That article is one of the worst things I've read. It's so over the top and full of shite. It's as if The Echo let some brainwashed super bitter write it. Who are these world class players that have treaded the Hallowed Goodison turf recently. They haven't had anything remotely in that bracket since Big Nev retired to KFC.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Love to know how they cook the books,so they make a profit. No way is that club making a profit without the Arab oil money propping up all their sponsership deals. Can't sell 10,000 semi-final tickets, put FA Cup Final tickets on general sale, and the ground has thousand of empty seats most games. No World Wide appeal or shirt sales etc, etc etc. And on the other side they spend and pay mega bucks on players, without not much coming back in sales.

    Don't think there is a bad enough word in the English Language to describe that fella. When have SYP, the FA or Shef Wed ever admitted incompetence regarding Hillsborough? That is the thing we've been fighting for 30 years, to prove that their incompetence caused the deaths, and bring them to account. Obviously never been anywhere near a crowd in his life.

    If they do get a ban, this would be the 2nd time they've been found guilty of breaching FFP, so presumably if they wanted to play in Europe again, they would need to adhere to the rules in future. I think this would severely affect them. Without the over inflated sponsership deals, and lack of world wide support, their income would be severely reduced, and put them well behind Utd, us, Arsenal and probably Spurs/Chelsea. A team that can't sell 10,00 of their FA Cup Semi Final tickets, and have to put Final tickets on general sale, are not a Big Club.
  6. The thing is no other Premier League team, not a fair chunk of Championship teams, would swap their current manager for OGS, yet he's got the job to rebuild them. He's never proved himself as a manager so it's a very big gamble for them, and it's ridiculous that they've done it. Hopefully he takes their current form into next season and they fall apart again. Lovely stuff.

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    I thought they made all the weapon out of that black stuff as that killed white walkers permanently. They made a big story line out of it, but the Dead King just raised all the ones who were killed anyway. What the score with all that?

    Shift work and Nights.

    I did shifts for 20 odd years and the benefits are great like no rat race commute, lot more time at home, seeing and being there for kids, dropping and picking them up for school 2 out 3 longish weekends, lot less knobheads in work etc so had a good laugh. But I was constantly tired, narkey and my eating habits were weird so was putting weight on all the time, and drank gallons of coffee. kids are grown up now so work flexi but do look back with pleasure at shifts.

    PFA Team of the Year

    Can't really argue with this team bar Pogba, he's been dogshit most of the season. loads of Blues moaning that Digne or however you spell it, should have been in instead of Robertson. Just don't think he's at that level yet, and their defence has been shite half the season.

    Lets be honest, it may be their worst signing in PL History, but there have been far worse by other teams, us included. Aquallani, Markovich, Carroll & Benteke immediately spring to mind.

    Trawl through that lads Twitter feed and see how much he is bothered. Every definition of an Evertonian ever posted in this thread is right there on his feed. Absolute bitterist of the bitters.

    Russia World Cup 18

    Spurs will have to start the season with their kids, with the amount of players they still have at the World Cup.

    I may be wrong but isn't the stadium in the wrong place on that picture. The clock tower in Bramley Dock is much further toward town than that, well before The Titanic hotel. Not sure how big the dock is though, but they always use the clock as a symbol for Bramley dock.

    Yep. Used to be called The Red Brick due to a big red fire place made of red brick. Used to bevvy in there all the time.

    Always call it by it's original name when talking to Bluenoses as well, The Red Brick. They dropped the red nit in the 90s.
