    The reasons to be optimistic about the new season thread.

    I think the back to back friendlies have shown that our squad depth is better then we think and we can actually put out a decent 2nd eleven they would be able to compete. This would be my 1st eleven Allisson trent vvd gomez robbo fabinho thiago henderson mane bobby Salah 2nd Eleven kelleher nico/Milner konate matip timikas milner/Jones keita elliot ox jota minamino if we can offload origi/Shaq/Phillips & bring in one more we’ll be in a good position to challenge for the title imo.

    Apparently works start on Bramley Moore tomorrow. Still no mention of how it’s being funded but Moshiri is funding the initial costs. Is this happening then?

    Other football - 2020/21

    Win our next 3 games and we’d go into the final day in the top four, can’t see it happening personally but it’s technically back in our hands.

    Man Utd (A) - Thursday 13th May 8.15 pm

    Seen the Swiss ramble article on their finances and the glazers have took over 1 billion out interest/dividend etc however they have still managed to outspend everyone apart from City so basically their beef is that they want to be able to spend even more then they currently have.

    New Super League to Rival CL - 11 Clubs Sign Up

    Sad times but you evolve or you die. We took far to long to evolve when the premier league started and it took us the best part of 30 yrs to recover. What benefit is there to taking the moral high ground and letting all the other top teams in Europe go ahead without us. We’d never be able to compete. Sad times but it is what it is football has been a business since 92 and was made even worse by Abramovich/ Mansour etc. FSG out ? Then what do you think a new owners gonna invest 2 billion plus to buy the club out of the goodness of there heart and give it back to the people!

    Surely this goes ahead now? I know we’ve laughed and mocked it as the unicorn stadium for years but they surely wouldn’t go this far unless they had the funds lined up to deliver it! Will be really interesting to see the funding proposal which they said would be revealed once PP was granted.

    He’s got to play Williams or Davies alongside Kabak and get Fabinho back midfield immediately, what’s the worst thing that can happen? We get beat, well what’s fuckin new! Definition of madness persisting with this current setup/plan.

    Totally agree it’s was unforgivable.

    Everton (H) PL - Sat 20th Feb 2021 at 17:30

    Injuries or not the way we stared that game yesterday was unforgivable. We should have been bang up for it especially after what happened in the game at goodison but we started terribly and were 2nd to everything in the 1st half. It’s been a long time since you can say Everton wanted it more than us in a derby but they did in that 1st half which basically sealed our fate.

    Hopefully Fabinho & Jota are back for this one. Need to stop playing midfielders in defence, pick 2 from kabak/Davies/Phillips Fabinho/Thiago/Keita salah/jota/mane

    Is Allison injured again? Rumours he never trained today and Adrian now tweeting, ‘already thinking about derby time!

    Moshiri already plunged 600m of his own cash into Everton (150m to buy his 77% share and 450m in director loans which apparently he willing to write 100m of that debt off to take his ownership up to over 90%) and is willing to put another 100m towards the new stadium. 700m invested + they’re gonna take on 300m in debt to fund it. Crazy
  14. We didn’t realise it as we somehow managed to plod through until Xmas which in this delayed season was the equivalent of the end of November (game 14) but once We lost vvd & Gomez for the season we were done. Losing our 2 best defenders meant losing our 2 best midfielders which has decimated our best 11. That’s beyond out control but we also fucked up by not bringing in a replacement for Lovren, then waiting until the last day of the winter window to bring in centre half’s, those deals should have been agreed and delivered on 1/1. The final fuck up was playing Jota in the champions league game as he was playing brilliantly and Salah apart the front 3 looks like it’s gone stale. Bitterly disappointing but if we can somehow salvage top 4 then I’d be confident we can come back again next season.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Ha ha, I think it’s pretty much guaranteed BMD will be granted permission whether it goes any further is another matter entirely.
