Re posts on page 2. I agree that the bloke who shall not be mentioned should choose his words better. He does create pressure on himself at times. I would agree with that one point!

You liken him to voldermort. Lol.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 19:42:40
looks nothing like Voldemort.

Well we are almost safe now. Think back to just before Sam arrived. We were all s***ing bricks and thinking how bad things were. Relegation was being talked about big time. Having said that, we still have a dreadful away record as he pointed out. But we should now secure the few points needed with some winnable home games. So that leaves Sam with a handful of away games to win over doubting fans. He needs to set us up without the defensive pairing of Gueye and Schneids, because it clearly does not work and invites the home team to attack us constantly. He has to pick Rooney in the deeper role because he is the creative one who looks for forwards passes. He has to pick Gueye to cover Rooney's lack of defensive ability these days. He then has to put Tom Davies in as the engine and presser helping out whoever is in attack. And I would continue with Gilfi on the left because the guy is class and although a more forwards thinking player, he works his socks off just like Davies and Niasse. So I would have Niasse in too. The defence is anyones guess. I just hope Seamus is not out for long. But that team should not sit back and allow the opposition to press us all the time because it is capable of attacking and breaking. Of course Wallcott on the right is a no brainer. Best signing since Lukaku. Actually since Moyes. So if Sam continues with a back 5 or 2 defensive mids that one is Shneids. I will join all you Sam haters and want him out too. It clearly does not work and the run of 5 games without a shot on target proves that. let's see what he does next few away games. But so far he has done what we never thought possible and got us nearly safe with about 10 games to go.


1.) 13 Feb 2018 07:17:04
good post degsy but Sam isn't bothered about away wins hence the reason he makes so many changes he knows with our home record that should be enough to keep up in the top half and that is his only aim.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 07:30:02
Sorry BLUEY79, but I read things and sometimes wonder? How do you know Sam isn't bothered about away wins? Did you get your doctorate in mind reading a while back? Of course he is bothered. You are right that he may think we have more chance of securing home wins but to say he is not bothered . beggars belief. I also just looked up what he actually said about Tosun. People saying he won't play him until we are safe. which is partly the story. but he also said because he is not fit enough. If I was manager, I would want fit players playing in the premier league. I guess people are just looking for comments to slag the man off. Sam also said it is important that Tosun succeeds at Everton because he was responsible for wanting him at Everton. that's not how people on here were portraying Sam's comments. I understand we have looked bad. but we looked bad (in fact we looked worst) when Koeman was manager earlier this season.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 09:28:13
We know he's not bothered about away wins because he hasn't tried to win away since his first away game.

4.) 13 Feb 2018 10:33:25
Big Sam stated that it was important to win your home games. It should be important to try and win all of the games. With all the changes he makes for the away games it does make you wonder if he is bothered about the 5000 fans that go to the away matches. The balance of the team looked a lot better on Saturday. For me he should start the same 11 for our next match. Rooney playing deeper makes things happen.

{Ed002's Note - Don't worry you'll manage to drive him out and drag the club down. The toxicx will get what theyt want.}

5.) 13 Feb 2018 10:41:16
Good posts Degsy Thumbs up from me mate lol.

6.) 13 Feb 2018 12:42:05
Good post Degsy, although i do think Allardyce shouldn't have mentioned anything about playing him only when we are safe. It doesn't do the player any good. he should have just said, he isn't fit enough yet, but as soon as he is he will play. You have to wonder whether he said the same to Lookman and Lookmans thought, sod that.

Thats my biggest gripe with him, some of his comments are contradictory and not helpful to the players or fans sometimes.

7.) 13 Feb 2018 14:44:37
Thing is Smit do we want a manager who lies to us or a manager who tells the truth? He gets asked direct questions he does not volunteer the info he gives. Maybe the way forward would be if we stopped having and press conferences.

8.) 13 Feb 2018 15:34:06
He just needs to stop making statements that set himself up for a fall.
All the spiel about how his 1st signing has to be right, and how it would define him as a manager to the fans. What happens? he doesn't play the lad.
then he backtracks with stats about how many foreign january signings take a long time to settle.
Its his bombastic approach to interviews that needles me more than his game management Grumpy.



12 Feb 2018 14:05:20
Welcome back Grumpytoffee. I had a while off here too. I think you could call me Grumpytoffee too! If the cap fits as they say. Seriously, we all have to remember how passionate we Blues are and sometimes allow a bit of an alternative opinion! Except me of course. because I am always right (sarcasm again)


1.) 12 Feb 2018 15:53:45
Thanks Degsy,

I have really enjoyed your posts I think they add a lot of realism to these forums mate.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 17:31:03
Welcome back Grumpy. If it was me that upset I do apologise. I think you're a very good contributor to here and probably much better than me.

We might not see eye to eye sometimes but I like that. What's the point I just reading the same point of view.

3.) 12 Feb 2018 18:50:01
Thank BJU,

No it was not you mate, I actually enjoy some of the scraps we have.

I would go further and say it's most of the time we don't see eye to eye lol, but one thing is certain we are both blue's inside and out and that is what counts mate.

Looking forward to our next scrap mate.

4.) 12 Feb 2018 21:27:00
Me too bed 😉 and I agree. Cut us both open and we'd bleed blue mate.



11 Feb 2018 07:57:59
Spread the word that next time Morgan's name is announced. we will do what all Blue supporters have always done. give the lad a bit of support and confidence with a flipping great cheer. regardless of how bad he is. we at least want him with confidence and giving his all!


1.) 11 Feb 2018 08:20:28
Well said degsy. That's the type of supporters we are. Even Marez didn't get what Snids did yesterday.

I'm not his greatest fan at all but we are better than that at Everton. Our belief we are the best supporters was questioned yesterday.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 09:21:34
I reiterate what I said yesterday booing at players at any time is awful but to do it as the guy is about to come on is diabolical, he's got the Blue Shirt on for heavens sake.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

3.) 11 Feb 2018 10:27:28
I wasnt at the game yesterday, but I think the waters have been muddied by why everyone was actually booing. Was it at Schneiderlin, was it because Tosun wasn't coming on or was it because it looked like a defensive sub. Maybe it was a bit of everything. Personally I wouldn't boo but, supporters invest their money in this club through season tickets and I can understand their frustrations are probably at breaking point with Schneiderlin, if indeed that is what they were booing. We are all different and all show our emotions in different ways, especially during the game.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 11:09:56
Well the remedy is a huge cheer for him next time. Spread the word.

5.) 11 Feb 2018 11:13:11
You are right Smit mate good post.

6.) 11 Feb 2018 11:51:43
Agree Degsy. And Schneiderlin can acknowledge that with a stellar performance.

7.) 11 Feb 2018 13:00:48
Doesnt make sense. Yes he's been bad but coming on to those boos isn't going to help is it? Was embarrased to in the crowd at that point in time.

8.) 11 Feb 2018 17:47:34
I will always cheer him, especially if he's only coming on for the last five minutes. 👍.

9.) 11 Feb 2018 19:04:02
The boos were for the 3rd defensive substitution of the game, why not give Tosun 10 minutes when we are on the front foot and 3 goals to the good, I don't condone booing your own players and I didn't join in the boos, but I do feel it wasn't aimed at Schneids but more at Bisto for yet another negative substitution.

10.) 12 Feb 2018 10:12:07
The boos were for the substitution, not for Schneiderlin. Everyone wanted to see the new striker we bought in January, instead we got to see one of our worst players again who seems to think he’s good enough to be playing for Barcelona! Again the boo’s were for the defensive substitution and not for the greatest player in the world himself 😂.



10 Feb 2018 22:33:52
I have moaned about Morgan Shneids all season. However, as I have said before, it is up to supporters to support. I was absolutely disgusted at our fans for the first time of my 61 years. If people want to boo a man in an Everton shirt. wear red! I will not say any more than that!


1.) 10 Feb 2018 22:58:13
There was groans and boos by me but talking to people it was aimed at sam for not bringing on a fresh attacker and go for the kill not aimed at morgan personally, he was clapped on when the announcer said his name.

2.) 10 Feb 2018 23:48:16
Nope he was booed Johny. Only a few like me clapped him and a few cheered when he made a tackle.

The other players would have thought why do we bother. We were winning and it should have been time to build on the feel good factor. Instead it left a bad taste.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 07:48:39
I agree we shouldn't be booing anyone mate i can only talk for the people by me and i was frustration at sam but even that doesn't warrant the boos its not on million percent morgan took it as aimed at him and it will only crush the tiny bit of confidence he had left.

I think the club were shocked at Barkley's determination to leave. Especially as it coincided with Lukaku. That's are 2 top scorers and there was and obvious need to replace them both. We were then caught up in the shock of extra TV money causing an instant increase intop players values. so the likes of Sigurdson's fee of £45 million cames as a shock. Add into that Giroud mucking about. signing/ not signing and then the availability of Rooney and Klaasen. (Klaasen's fee being somewhat lower) . The whole lot was messy and poor. then Baines got injured. it is just all messy. but the dice didn't fall in the best way for us.

Ed0333, you are a very naughty boy and should stop antagonising the poor little Everton supporters with your naughty little comments. If I hear any more from you like this, I will make you go to bed early. and even worse, insist on you being an Evertonian yourself. just so you understand what it's like to suffer and be ridiculed! Now stop it!


{Ed0333's Note - I’m on the graveyard shift mate, I edit from around 10pm - 4am and people get naughty at night and I’m no different. I really like KFC I mean EFC as I grew up with Wilko’s fabulous team in the 90’s. If you take note of my editing I’m disparaging and encouraging in equal measure of all teams, I jest with and slag off Liverpool fans also. Come on degsyp lighten up a bit mate it’s only banter and believe me mate I know all about ridicule and suffering you don’t know my mother!

Glennk, I don't think the toxic thing was aimed particularly at you. It is something that seems to have gained momentum and is like a mindset. Posters seem to have an agressive view that results in certain people just seeing only the negative in everything Everton. As Ed says, we are here to support and whilst we are free to comment on negative aspects, some people just seem to see only negative and nothing positive at all. I guess it is about perspective. I for one was very critical on Martinez and warned about him relying on one goalscorer and not replacing ageing players with ones of the same calibre or in the peak age group and relying on youth too much. But overall, we are supposed to support when people are trying their best to run the club. Certain people would have you believe that our manager was deliberatley losing away games for instance. that is just ridiculous. He has also been quoted as saying things which are just untrue. Bill Kenwright has been accused of syphoning money out of the club. Even Schneiderlin has been accused of not putting effort in. I actually think he has lost all confidence and is not as good as some thought. but to accuse him of lack of effort? He trains hard all week with the manager watching and he obviously thinks Schneiderlin is training hard. I could go on and on. but the pont has been made and I would now rather have debates and discussions that are real and in the words of Ed002 . not toxic.

Good summary BJU. Perhaps people will see what Ed002 has said and you and me too. Maybe we will start using that word "perspective". Imagine being a Nottingham Forest supporter . 2 European Cups. then obscurity. Or a Leeds Utd supporter? Or even Newcastle. they are a huge club with fantastic support base. plus many others who have been in and out of the Championship/ Premiership? I still remember seeing Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea being relegated and then coming back up. We are very fortunate to have had such a long run in the top flight. Things went for us a few times. Man Utd relegated on goal difference to us. Bolton Wanderers having a perfectly good goal disallowed and getting relegated ahead of us. The Wimbledon fightback. If Moshiri keeps going with us and does not get bored, then we have a chance over probably 8 to 10 years to build a squad and get back into that top 6. In the meantime we are likely to unearth some gems of footballers, but they are likely to do what Stones, Barkley, Fellaini, Arteta, Gravesson, Lukaku and probably a few others that I have missed done. ie bugger off to a top 6 team. We have to ride that storm and keep replacing them whilst at the same time have a 10 year plan with youngsters being constantly added to. At this point I praise Baines and Coleman. because I am pretty sure they have had offers from top 6 clubs and remained at Everton when it would have been so easy to jump ship.

Agree about performances Geoffjohno, but this is not what Ed002 is on about. He is on about the toxic nature of certain posters who would blame the manager, chairman or any other senior member of the club or player for anything negative with EFC. Sometimes you have to accept that things are just unlucky, unfortunate or indeed that other clubs have done better than you. It is the toxic anger that comes out and has infighting between us when we should all be supporting rather than constant criticism and almost hatred of all things Everton.
