Just read the list of clubs for which 24 yr old Belfodil has played. Very nervous. Either he's a twat or his agent is and he's a bit of a numb nuts and trails round wherever his agent points him.

Sorted himself out a bit at Liege, by the looks of things.


2.) 14 Jan 2017 09:05:39
Mayou be wrong but I heard he previously had problems as he was owned by a third party that caused issues. But either way, he does seem to be doing better


3.) 14 Jan 2017 11:06:27
I think his many moves has been down to his agent. The stalling point on him coming to us is down to the agent. Some of them have far too much influence over players and do not always act with the players best interests at heart.

If anybody wants to know why every Everton transfer becomes a dog and pony show, the answer is Bill Kenwright, Bill, for god sake step away. Some people think he's wonderful, mr everton, other are (lets be kind) less convinced, but which ever camp you fall into, surely it must be recognised that it is time for him to step away from an active roll.

Just read on BBC website that we haven't had a shot on target in January. Allardyce solution? Become more boring.

Yes blame Allergy for the fact of us signing a load of non creative players over the last 4 seasons. Blame him for trying different formations. Blame him for looking like little schoolboys out on the pitch. Blame him for the first 10 games before he arrived and we performed in exactly the same manner. Blame him for the collapse of Carillion. Brext. and any more you can think of because it all makes sense.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 10:05:00
Can blame him for starting with 2 defensive midfielders constantly, can blame him for not playing 2 up top, can blame him for not using your best number 10 in the number 10 role, can blame him for not playing actual wingers on the wing, other than that you have a point Degsy.

Quality bluegray.

{Ed025's Note - and true..


4.) 16 Jan 2018 16:51:35
I have to agree with the number 10 comment. Which then of course would allow the left winger to be an actual winger. no arguments from me on that one. As for 2 defensive midfielders. Martinez started it with McCarthy and Barry. (although Barry did venture forwards) . Scneids and Gueye very rarely get forwards and both are terrible at getting up to the oppos box. We look better with McCarthy in. But hey your points about number 10 and 2 defensive midfielders does not explain the dross football being served up nor the lack of a shot on target in 5 consecutive games. In my humble opinion (which Swan never ever agrees with whatever I say) it is down to poor players in the main. It equals the worst ever Premier League run. If that's down to a bit of positional tactics or one or two players I may as well give up now.

Very sad to read of the death of Cyrille Regis.

1.) 15 Jan 2018 13:04:21
Just heard about it myself Glenn, Only 59.
My thoughts and condolences are with his Family.
R. I. P Cyrille.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 16:46:46
Great player, the abuse he suffered on the terraces was nothing short of disgraceful, had to put up with a lot of racial abuse, for that I always respected him as a player whenever we played them, r. i. p Cyril thoughts go out to your family.

Is it true that Tosun asked to be taken off early so that he could get to Heathrow and get a flight to Turkey?

Hahahaha. I heard he paid his own buy out clause.

Blimey - the gallows humour has started really early this time!

I want to speculate about the Holgate/ Firmino incident. Firstly there was no justification or teason for Holgate's initial push. It was dangerous and that he went unpunished was amazing. If he had received a red card, he would not have too much defence.

The interesting part was his reaction when Firmino climbed back out of the crowd. Something angered him greatly even causing him to manhandle the ref (lucky boy again) . Firmino is S American. Perhaps his standards of political correctness are not all they might be, especially when angry. Did he say something racial that caused Holgate's anger? If so will Liverpool report it.

Glennk

{Ed025's Note - my view glen for what its worth is that firmino called him a mother f***** or something similar and and mason interpreted it as something more sinister, all heat of the moment stuff and its easy for things like that to get lost in translation, handbags for me mate and it needs putting to bed..


1.) 06 Jan 2018 08:21:00
There's a video doing the rounds on twitter of Holgate screaming at Schneiderlin that he was called the n-word.
Make of it what you will, but he certainly seems sure that's what he heard. Whether that's what was said or not we'll have to wait and see. After the Suarez/ Evra incident - how will Liverpool deal with it?

{Ed025's Note - my view is that its a misunderstanding and that things have been lost in translation TIH, there will be an investigation but i suspect it was something and nothing in the heat of battle mate..


2.) 06 Jan 2018 09:09:06
The only word I can make out is "puta". Whatever Firmino called him, after what he did Holgate should think himself lucky that Firmino confined it to insults.


3.) 06 Jan 2018 10:35:57
ridiculous comment Glennk. there is no place even in the heat of the moment for use of such insult (whether lost in translation or not) . Blue in the face comes to mind but in this day and age there is no need for it whether on the sporting field or not.


4.) 06 Jan 2018 11:22:53
To me there are two separate incidents. Pre-push and post push. Did Firmino say something as both went for the ball that angered Holgate, or did Holgate push him in frustration? If Firmino did say something that needs investigating and dealing with by the FA and club. If Holgate pushed in frustration then he deserves to be punished by both the FA and club. What happens after is another incident and clearly words used would be within earshot of at least 5-6 players and the referee. Regardless of the 1st incident nothing can legislate for using foul insults (racist or not) , and something has clearly upset Holgate over what was said, or what he thinks was said. Being in another country, it is easy as I well know, to revert to your natural tongue when angered, and say something that whilst not too offensive in your own country, is in another one. For me Holgate cannot go unpunished for what he did as he could have seriously injured Firmino. Same as Firmino should face some punishment as his actions after were threatening and had it not been for the referee and other players he too could have injured Holgate. Just to write it off as heat of the battle does not send out a clear message to players that aggression (physical or verbal) is not acceptable on a football pitch. Hopefully it will be sorted quickly and both players advised of their actions being unwanted in the game.

{Ed025's Note - i think your looking too deep here nick, it was handbags for me mate..

The evidence for this attacking cornucopia being the torrent of shots we rain in on goal and not the fact that last time we scored the most advanced player in the move was a centre back. Worry not though we've dropped the indisciplined maverick.

Don't understand how stating facts is negativity. I would be delighted to see free flowing football culminating in a 4-0 win. However, evidence based optimism is by far the best sort.

So we are hoping to pinch 1-0. Far cry from 4-0.

So what we are predicting is that Sam will pick a side that looks nothing like any side he has picked for us before. That side will gel immediately and overwhelm a West Brom team whose improving performances have culminated in a first confidence boosting win under Pardew last week at the same time as we were losing 4-0. What odds do you think I should take about that coming off?

Glennk

{Ed025's Note - im hoping that sam is talking about shoring us up defensively and with the new guys up top have an attacking threat playing on the counter glen..
