    FPL Draft Game

    Yeah my luck has been really really bad. Shit first draft then the last few I’ve lost in weeks I would have beaten almost all others I faced .. I came into the full game FF late but determined to make up for lost ground there instead now .. I was sure I’d get those Origi points but Pepe and Jorginho did me in with about 30 mins combined ..

    Pepe was my first pick

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Silva has fucked a lot of English clubs up. Took Hull down. Moves to Watford - flirts with Everton and ruins any semblance of momentum Watford had. Leaves Watford, finally moves to Everton - creates possibly the flimsiest Everton side since the late 90s. Surely he won't be getting another job in the league anytime quick.

    Liverpool 5 Everton 2 (Dec 4 2019)

    Styles make fights as it were. Silva has thrown the towel in & they are a disorganised rabble. That sort of side is always going to get put to the sword by us vs a more organised toe to toe team like Villa. They are in a really bad way .. remind me of the Boro 90s side that got relegated. Some decent individuals but tons of overpaid egos. It’s a little United Nations over there - the squad probably don’t say two words to each other away from the pitch. They’re in a bit of trouble because this season even the very worst sides Watford aside seem to have a bit of pluck.

    dont underestimate how much that United squad hated Mourinho. That is grade-A United anyway; beat Spurs and they'll probably go on to lose to Everton under their new manager later this month. Mediocre game-raisers. I see Leicester have started slugging out fortuitous victories now, with Watford & Everton in succession. Will be surprised if they go and beat Villa this weekend.
  6. Been saying all week this would be the one where we batter them. Leicester was Silva's last hurrah; they put absolutely everything into that. Tired legs, tired minds, tired old blues.

    Opposition View: Everton

    Great article - you can feel the anger / Blue Seethe mounting as you scroll down the page. For many years they had the plucky Everton excuse - now they’ve spent as big as almost anyone & they’ve only gone backwards. Touch wood but think this may be the one we finally put them to the sword.

    Sancho for Salah/Mane

    Amen. Firmino is good but he’s not Salah/Mane good. Neither should be available at any price. There’s only really Sterling in all of world football who is comparable in those positions. You can shove your fat fraud Eden Hazards too with 1 goal in 13 games. Anyone coming in should be to strengthen those 2 not replace. Tack on 2 more years with Ronaldo done & Messi faded and you’re looking at 2 on the top 5 players in the world (to go with VVD). We should be looking to push for another 2 CLs in the next 5 years - not sell our best mid-peak.
  9. ?? I mean this is just stupid. He was one of the best midfielders in Europe within 6 months of his debut. Mascherano & Tevez’ West Ham versions are probably decent shouts but only for half a season - Tevez kept them up almost single handedly later on. Forlan after he left United? Often it needs the move for a player to reinvent themselves. Very rarely does it happen at the same club as the lack of variety of names in this thread shows.

    You might want to look at comparative net spend between Everton & others (ourselves included) over the past 3 seasons. The league - ourselves and City aside, and our growth has been through relative financial modesty - is as competitive as it has ever been. Wealth isn’t the source of angst.

    45-55 puts them at, what, 25-35 back when the Gary Mac derby was on. Yeah, don't think that was a golden age for Liverpool/Everton fan relations. The classic trope is 'the older fans are alright' .. not really .. it is as it always was. No idea what these wealth gaps are either -- its been a game for millionaires for 30 years + now. Today was a good result for us. Upped their game for Silva's swan-song .. they'll be out of breath come mid-week and he's onto a hiding to nothing (he's gone soon anyway). I think this will finally be the one under the floodlights where we give them a smashing.
  12. Depends who they get. Pochettino is worst-case. Someone like Allegri most likely doesn't work out, but there's always a chance as they do have pedigree. Solskjaer has put them another 2 years back on the damage that Mourinho already did there. Horrendous squad with no redeeming features. Rashford should be the next one to jump - though he'll likely stick it out as there's no obvious destination for him. Any football players volunteering to be coached by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is begging for millions to be wiped off their valuation.

    Rodgers-football with a defence of David Luiz, Kolasanic, Bellerin & Sokritis with Xhaka in front. What could go wrong.

    Current form is they're on for 86 points. That won't the league this season, and it won't have won it in any other season in recent memory other than the one they won it with their deliriously low points total (Pochettino not winning the league that season was his one, true fuck up). When Vardy's current goal-a-game purple patch comes to an end the draws will start rolling in for them.

    A lot of people have pretty shit memories then because we have never, ever remotely been in a position like being 11 pts ahead of City with same number of games played.
