    The 97

    RIP to the 97, not forgetting all who have been affected over the years since.

    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    The finish for the disallowed goal in the first half was impressive, when he chipped Allison on the run, that was class. I don’t like the way he (or any other players for that matter) hits the floor too easily, but that seems to be endemic in professional football today, I’m sure Klopp might attenuate that should he ever sign for him. Have to say I think he’s good, but then I thought Ollie Watson was too!

    There aren’t many who could, especially if we’re on form. city and Real are probably two who could, but if we play as well as we can against anyone, then we win.

    Man City (A) - Sun 10th Apr 2022 (4:30pm)

    City will be more concentrated on the CL the nearer they get to the final, and they will get to the final I think, so they might take chances in the League and that’s when they may drop points. We have to win all our games to be certain of taking advantage if/when they do slip. They may just think they’ve won it today and that could be to our advantage. We need to be better than today though.

    Thank fuck we’ve at least give it a go this half.

    Against most teams our system works, even though other teams know what to expect. City have more technical and tactical ability though and are exploiting our weaknesses ruthlessly, but do we have a plan B to throw them?

    Apart from the pass for Jota’s goal, Trent has been a total weakness and they’re targeting him all the time. Klopp has got a job and a half on at half time because they have had our number pretty much from the kick off.

    Take the draw right now. We look terrified of them.

    Burnley have never won a premier league game that they have been behind in at half time. For that reason alone they deserve to go down.

    Mohamed Salah

    It’s Ramadan from 1st April until 1st May, that will possibly have some effect on Mo, Naby and Sadio given the strict nature of when and what they can eat etc.. No surprise Mo’s struggling if he started Ramadan knackered.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    So, many journo’s fail to call out City and their Arab owners on shady money dealings, when the owners of another Arabic owned Premier League club had the wherewithal to have a journo who disagreed with them chopped up and put in bin bags. Coincidence?

    Sadly I have to admit if there’s one team in world football who could pick us apart, it’s these. Conversely, if there’s a team who could rip them to bits by putting pressure on a defence that is rarely tested, it’s us. We play as we can, and we win. Just do it Reds.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Don’t worry about GOT, by tomorrow they’ll have got over the shock of losing to Burnley and the sabre rattling will start (not literally I hope). There’ll be the usual calls to make the Old Lady a bear pit, get there early to ramp up the atmosphere, “remember the Wimbledon game”, etc. etc. They might not even provide sandwiches in the Brick. I wouldn’t put it past them to actually get a result and prolong the agony.

    tommo84 Proud to be loud Today at 10:23 PM #12,356 I keep hearing people connected to Everton talk up the youngster Anthony Gordon, but I don’t see anything special. He’s a diving little shit who runs a lot but just ends up on the floor. Sometimes he gets the decision as he did a few times tonight (inc the first penalty) but if that’s your best player then you’re in massive trouble. Not just us who see it then? Only referees and bloos.

    Gordon appears to be perfecting the “art” of simulation and taking it to a new depth. When will these fuckers of referees learn to see through all that shit like ours did last night?
  16. Churlish it might be, but boy, do we seem to be doing things the hard way these days? We’ve won 3-1 away yet, somehow, it still feels a bit disappointing? Probably four goals better than these and it was a stroll in the first half, and even though they came more into it in the second half, it was our sloppiness that got them a goal back and our sloppiness that allowed them to stay in with a sniff until the end. We’ll surely be more focussed on Sunday against City, and we’ll have to be to get the result we want I think.
  17. Should’ve been 4 up at half time, to be fair they’ve rolled up their sleeves this half and got back into it, but only because we’ve been dogshit. There’s still time for us to get at least one more and we should. Edit: We have!
  18. Fucking dire this half. Happening too much when we’ve been bossing games we step off it then struggle. No need.
  19. That’s true and I’ve been one of them, but the truth of it is that more and more the seriously monied clubs have bought their way to the top in all of the leagues in Europe and dominate them most of the time. The exceptions are few, but we have been one (even though we’re hardly skint) and united’s relative demise has been fun to watch, but their owners can and will carry on buying managers and players until they get CL football as a minimum every season, which will mean that they, City and possibly Newcastle in the future will be occupying three of the four places that the PL currently qualify for. We’re all enjoying the ride that FSG and Klopp have been giving to us and hope it goes on for several seasons yet, however from a financial capacity, we’re on a par with Arsenal, Tottenham and perhaps Chelsea now, not the previously mentioned three. I’m really trying to be realistic rather than a doom merchant, but I seriously don’t see United scrabbling around again for nearly 30 years until their next title given their financial clout.
  20. I wouldn’t ever say United we’re not going to be a threat. Unlike most of the other top four contenders, they have the money to keep throwing at their problem until they get it right. Never underestimate the power of the Dark Side.

    Swiss Ramble @SwissRamble · 1h #EFC directors’ remuneration increased from £3.5m to £4.2m with the highest paid director rising 65% from £1.2m to £2.0m. Incredibly, this was 4th highest in the Premier League, which begs the question: just how much would they be paid if they actually did a good job? This bit made me smile, the only thing that is going up is the directors money and four corners of the new ground.
