  1. I was being harsh, but most fans I know are aware of it or have posted on it at some time or another, and I am the only Moog persona still posting out of that lot.

    To be fair, there would be rumblings if Foster hadn't saved our blushes on counless occasions.
  4. TBF I don't think he made anything other than fairly routine saves on Saturday (perhaps the Tosun shot after the Holebas/Doucouré mix-up)
  5. What has he said? (On ignore you see after his/your mental Brexit ramblings). In hindsight, maybe I was too easily had, no less ridiculous than Sharia4Watford or meridensi.

    Mariappa would walk into Leicester, Everton and West Ham teams? Get a grip man.

    I’m really not sure you are getting the concept of Gracia getting above expected returns on our player stock.

    Yet another who would like to make out Everton are the victims in all this, and Watford are the bad guys.

    It was Everton who tried to destabilised a fellow Premier League club. It was their drugged up fans that put our fans in hospital, yet it's all our fault because we had an amusing play list pre kick off.

    Just another example of nothing is said when real injustice occurs to us, but when we give a little bit back, it's blown out of all proportion.

    I do apologise for that, but it just goes to show there is a real anti-Watford feeling in the press and in the media in general. Articles like this really underline it. The only press we get is bad press.

    I think that article shows with his "Everton Sources" that he is a journal with close ties to the toffees and clear sympathies. We're not on his radar apart from the well trodden stories which do the rounds, eg. Troy's joking comments at the AYP evening.

    Anyone who ties, what was absolutely top drawer banter, to the action of 6 thugs, must be a master of yoga, because that is some stretch.

    Why be so Pro Everton then? - the Sun are hated on Merseyside!

    I am sure managers and players have got worse stick when going back to a club - and probably a lot more personal!

    And a bit of provoking music/worded isn't an excuse for fans being attacked after the game - it seems those involved were high on drugs according to latest reports.

    I realise that journalism is a dying industry, but is that bloke the best a print newspaper could do? Really?

    The industry must be under incredible pressure if they don't even require their writers to write coherently. It reads like they've paid some bloke off the street to stretch a few rambling Evertonian tweets into a column.

  19. I thought the music was quite tame

    If it were me I'd have recorded a little ditty along the lines of 'Silva you're a c*nt, you're a slimey lying c*nt, your hair looks sh*t and your a lying slimey c*nt' and played it on a loop for 2 hours

    Far far worse banter took place at the weekend when Southampton fans took the piss out of Cardiff about poor Emiliano Sala. Perhaps that so called journalist should be focusing on that rather on a pre match play list hinting at the disloyalty of a former manager

    I agree. We are in danger of falling into the trap aka "The Charlton trap".
    1.Get promoted to top division and survive
    2.An excellent manager gets our average players to over-perform and reach 8th in the prem
    3.We assume that the average players are now in fact excellent players
    4.We assume that with these excellent players anything below 8th is failure and the manager is under-performing
    5.We become disillusioned with our failure to hold onto or improve on our position despite our excellent players
    6.Growing frustration and apathy leading to manager leaving. This creates a sense of optimism that we can finally appoint someone who can take us up to the next level (european qualification)...Pardew.

    Well, OK, but there' s nothing lucky about that - having a good keeper is part of having a good team. (& he is good).

    At least it's clear to everyone that Everton now have the moral high ground, by not reporting our 'musical tastes' to the Premier League.

    I think it shows, if that is a Monday's paper, how desperate football journalists are to find something to write about on Sunday evening, after the match has been thoroughly covered in the Sunday papers, radio, tv and even forums by then.
    Still a nasty, trouble-stirring, spiteful little piece of sh1t, however.

    “The atmosphere on Saturday was incredible and I think it has been all season. The crowd really get behind us, they sing, you see the banners before the game - it’s becoming a tough place for opposing teams. They really give us a good push.”

    - Adrian Mariappa

    To those of us that actually go to the games, let's try and make the atmosphere like that in every match. It really makes a difference, and even a boring game is given an edge. It inspires the players as well.

    I guess we're quits now. They derail our season and we respond with some songs. I thinks we've done well to avoid a points deduction over this.

    In fairness I've tried reporting our musical tastes for years. Most of the half time performers have been awful.

    I've also asked FIFA to sort out the half time penalty shoot out. They've not replied. Must be busy.

    Sure. But the point was about whether we needed to upgrade our CBs.

    Having a keeper make a large number of saves (a number of which were match-winning) should show the need for an upgraded defence, rather than the other way around. People just care less when we're picking up points.

    If you read the article carefully, beyond our disgusting song choices and the revolting joke made by Deeney, you might even discover that Everton illegally tapped up our manager, derailed our season and then a few of their fans, high on coke, beat the crap out of a father and son in a cemetery.

    I've heard Everton are going to report us to the FA for placing a wooden bar in the way of their shots to stop them from scoring.

    This is a serious complaint and is clear cheating. I think we could be in for a big points deduction over this.

    Foster knew where the bar was, Pickford as evidenced against a decent team from Liverpool (Liverpool), does not. Deeney also knows where the bar is.
