    What a birthday present! Yeeooo! Someone said earlier, signed / announced on the same day and the two contracts expire on the same day. You can read in to that what you will, but I suspect it's just mere coincidence.

    Certainly sounded like this was a done deal. We don’t get caught out like that anymore.

    He’d be more a horses for courses player? Wouldn’t start the big, tight games I’d imagine but would get plenty of game time against bus parking dross? Allows rotation, brings experience, quality & a work ethic. Seems to be a good character too.

    Everton (H) Premier League - 4/12/19 - 20:15

    it was an interesting game from a refereeing point of view. Almost like they’d decided to referee it leniently deliberately. I though VVD got the ball originally on the tackle in the box. When I saw the replay I was sure it would be given a penalty- even if it was one of those that could go either way. I was fairly shocked it wasn’t given. Trent’s tackle didn’t look good. In another game that could have been deemed a red. Some of Everton’s tackles / fouls also seemed to be let run. On one hand I thought that the refereeing was good for the game but it’s a glaring inconsistency with other games.
  5. On reading the post you’ve quoted I went back to take a look at the Sky app video. When he kicks the ball I reckon the distance is about a metre - the Brighton player actually moves towards the wall as the ball is travelling. Dunk actually takes a couple of steps of a run up. Yes the whistle shouldn’t have been blown but I don’t think the above is a valid reason for it to be chalked off.

    If we lose to Salzburg, aren't we in to Europa League territory? Tempted also. Lets be honest we should be beating most teams without him, but where someone comes to have a go, or in big games, he's essential. As for Brighton, I've not seen a lot of them, but we should be controlling most of that game, they'll sit deep though they do play football, and Lallana / Shaqiri / Origi should be getting a look in to offer creativity, and give others a break. Whisper it, but I'd be tempted to consider Gomez & Lovren at the back to give VVD a break before what is going to be a big period. He's played pretty much them all for us & a few international game too and whilst it's a different position, different need, he's going to be needed for Salzburg & Everton and you'd want him in good shape come Leicester.
  7. Incessant replays of something (usually unimportant) whilst actual football is happening. kicking the ball out for an injury. Unless there’s blood spraying everywhere or you have a degree in sports medicine, play the fuck on. Boots in any colour but black. It still looks awful even after all these years. Ballboys throwing the ball back to the opposition as if the thing is on fire. Slow it down & let our ones get back... VAR, sorry but it’s shit.

    So something a bit different, scoring first against good teams might not be in our long term interests... great hit all the same!

    That Dutch team won’t do much at the tournament. Didn’t create much against our motley crew. Can’t believe Davis skies the penalty, he usually rolls them in, rarely goes hard. Bottled it unfortunately. Off to Frankfurt now for the usual 2-0 plucky loss against the Germans.
  10. One of those just win it games. After an international break, away from home, energetic opposition, noisy crowd, motivated management team.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Back to 2019/2020, and Everton have had, statistically, the easiest start to the season of any club in the Premier League after 12 games: Starting with the hardest, here’s the difficulty of every club’s 12 fixtures so far. 1. Southampton 2. Newcastle United 3. Sheffield United 4. Watford 5. Norwich 6. Crystal Palace 7. Wolves 8. Tottenham 9. Liverpool 10. Aston Villa 11. Leicester City 12. Manchester United 13. Brighton 14. Burnley 15. Arsenal 16. Bournemouth 17. West Ham 18. Chelsea 19. Manchester City 20. Everton And it gets better, they have the hardest run in the next five games, and the second hardest run to the end of the season. https://www.planetfootball.com/quick-reads/premier-league-clubs-ranked-by-the-difficulty-of-their-opponents-so-far/

    I don't know the area, I don't know the politics, but looking at a map of Goodison, would buying the few streets around the ground really be out of the question (appreciate there's a primary school there too, but surely all doable and sure another first for them incorporating a Primary School in to their Stadium to go with the Church)? About an hundred houses between Gwladys Street & Walton Lane. About £20m of real estate on current average house prices for the city. Re-orientating the pitch to maximise use of space & build where they are? Probably cheaper than building on water.

    I watch very little football other than Liverpool games, but how is the kid Brooks doing at Bournemouth. Saw him in the Cabaro Cup against Chelsea last season (I think) and he was very good.

    He did the job against Villa IMHO, but I wouldn't be giving him a new contract. There will be other games this season where he can play that role, give Fab / Henderson a day off, if he's fit. The 'if' is his problem.

    City (H) Premier League - 10/11/19 - 16:30

    For all the talk about unnatural position, the ball hit him on the bicep or inside of elbow, which was pretty tight to the body. His hand was well out sure, but where the ball hit him? I don't see how he stops the ball hitting him there. All moot as the thing wouldn't have been anywhere near him if it hadn't come off Silva's hand in the first place. I thought they showed the two lines in the middle of the game? Not long after the goal? Am I imagining that? Neville commented on Stones playing him on side. Aside from all of that, the game flew by, and it was pretty much two good teams going at each other. I have to say I thought Sterling had his first decent game at Anfield since leaving until about the last ten minutes or so, when the red mist came down on the wee scrote and his game went to shit. We lovely to see.
