i don't understand, why does sam speak with great certainty that he'll be here next season, am i reading too much into this, could it just be he's just trolling everton and winding the fans up on purpose at this point? he literally hailed ings and solanke as one of the greatest attacks this season, i genuinely don't understand.

lol what is it with this forum
we lose one game sam is the antichrist
we win one game he is the literal reincarnation of guaranga.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 15:55:57
my stance hasn't changed he should be shown the door asap 1 game doesn't make him a good manager he is the worst thing to happen to our club since mike walker.

2.) 11 Mar 2018 17:26:35
Ask WBA how they feel, we were in the same boat as them and think they beat us, Sam may not be popular, but he has done what was needed, we now look safe, He was given a dud hand when he arrive, bought a couple of good players, he may not be right for the club, but we could be playing in the championship if it wasn't for him.

3.) 11 Mar 2018 17:57:36
Sorry Simon there are fortunately far to many crap teams in this league for that to happen.

4.) 11 Mar 2018 19:46:55
WBA, Southampton beat us, Sam made us better, it may not look like it but he did, we are now safeish, look at those 2 teams now, what was the score again against Southampton, they were worse than us.

5.) 12 Mar 2018 09:15:58
when did west brom beat us?

could do a lot worse pal.

I'd take wenger straight away.

we are not a big club, what is a big club? what do you define it by? is it how a football team affects the modern game? or is it the fan base, history? can there ever be a scientific criteria to quantify a football club as such? No, it's a grey area where everyone seems to have an unfalsifiable justification which delves into meaningless ranting and denigrating your debating counterpart.

it's meaningless, it's only something people who support the more successful sides say to inflate their sense of self worth because they have so much of their identity invested in a sports team, and the sides who don't do as well trying to hold onto a flailing sense of superiority, it simply does not matter. instead what would be more benefitial is to find ways to accumulate success so the love you feel for your team is remains in the present.
i don't even know why i went on this diatribe to post it here, i'm out.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 17:30:40
i would like the people who downvoted my post to give a constructive opposition to my argument, and the reasons they downvoted it for.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 18:38:19
I would worry about the thumbs down. There's obviously a few playing games. I don't bother with it anymore.

As for a big club? I suppose it's the criteria. Could be number of fans, number of trophies, CL wins, reputation or money.

I think in the business world it's generated income. For us fans it's success. For teams like us it's long term success and for teams like Chelsea and City it's recent success.

Are we a big club anymore? I don't really care. If we win a trophy I imagine we will become a little bigger in some eyes though.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 18:47:47
*wouldn't worry.

4.) 16 Feb 2018 19:43:17
People play games with the thumbs down thing mate. don't worry. Some of us are now seeing who can get the most thumbs down. Big club? I don't think we are in the scheme of things anymore. We have the potential to be a big club again. but it will take time. I would guess regular European qualification. Regulat trophies. A fan base that sustains all of the above. I am afraid that Everton FC had the opportunity in the late 80's to invest and grow. It also had another opportunity mid 90's with Joe Royle. and in both occasions chose not to invest. Peter Johnson is one reason. However, we were just unfortunate that these were important times and had the wrong people in charge who did not see the opportunity. However, things could have been worse. Leeds United were also a huge club at the time of the formation of the Premier League and gambled heavily investing in a huge expensive squad. and then failed to qualify for Europe and therefore missed out on the revenues that came with Champions League football. They nearly went bust!

Evertonthings don't worry about thumbs down down mate, there are a few on here who no longer read posts and just give a thumbs down to the person.

Degsy is right there are a few who now see how many we get for fun. If I said a wheel was round I would get at least 5 thumbs down, that's 3 less than I got for saying bullying in any form is wrong. I know or should I say I strongly suspect who 2 of them are but they just are not worth worrying over. Take pride in the thumbs down as thanks to some they have become meaningless.

6.) 16 Feb 2018 20:10:11
You are spot on with that analysis Degsy although I suspect it was more of a failure to spend when we were banned from Europe. We sat back thinking the ban would continue its full course and got caught out when it was relaxed and English teams were suddenly allowed back in. We just seem to of been playing catch up ever since.

7.) 16 Feb 2018 21:35:13
I for one down voted because I don't agree. I'm not going to justify my vote. Will the hurt and needy stop being passive aggressive because their view or comments are not the popular nirvana the poster assumed.

8.) 17 Feb 2018 02:31:58
To those who mentioned the thumbs down reaction, why are you so bothered about it? Whether people do it just to wind you up or whether they just don't agree, it shouldn't matter at all. Unless you are just writing stuff in the hope of getting a thumbs up, not that I am suggesting any of you do, to be accepted for what you say. Screw that, as long as you stand by your opinions and convictions then it doesn't matter one bit how others react.

9.) 17 Feb 2018 03:42:13
lol, my intention wasnt hitting out at anyone, i just wished to stimulate discussion on this topic, so constructive feedback instead of just liking or disliking what i said would be more interesting to delve into, also i've been on the internet since i was 10 so i know how this works :p.

10.) 17 Feb 2018 07:38:11
If you wanted a discussion, why did you finish with “I’m out”?

And why did you make the post so wordy? It only makes your point difficult to understand, maybe that’s why you had a few more thumbs down than you were expecting.

My point of view is that we are a big club. A club having so many innovations down through history, so many successes and a club spending more time in top flight football than any other team. Yes we are a big club, and my heart beats out of my chest every time I am reminded.

11.) 17 Feb 2018 11:01:22
"As long as you stand by your opinions and convictions then it doesn't matter one bit how others react. "

Does that statement include me bluepotao?

12.) 17 Feb 2018 11:30:32
Evertonthings I know where you are coming from. Whether people agree or don't agree, is irrelevant. However, I also like to hear a constructive point if someone disagrees with a post I put on. eg I say Walcott is our best signing for ages. then someone gives a thumbs down and says, "Degsy you are talking crap". Well that sort of winds me up. If they said well Walcoot is always injured or has no pace or a constructive discussion point I will accept that. But "Degsy you are talking crap" is not constructive. So I geet what you are on about. Added to which, this is indeed a banter site. not (in the words of Monty Python) an insult site!

13.) 17 Feb 2018 18:45:34
Evertonthings. My Grandson walked out against Young Boys holding Jags hand. Lots of photo's taken (as you would) , two weeks later, driving home, Grandaughter (don't you love em) shouts out from the back seat, 'Grandad, '*****' has something to tell you but he doesn't want to upset you'. He still supports the 'Dark side', yet is quite happy just this week to attend the NAC with Everton. I have to believe he will in time revert once again to the true Team of Liverpool and not the Norwegian contingent.

14.) 17 Feb 2018 19:22:30
Evertonthings, come on lad, why do you comment on this board or any other board, is it to collect brownie points? Of course it isn't. Personally I have had enough, no reflection on any individual. But that is enough for me. I wish Everton a successful rest of season and of course I am there at all the home games.



14 Feb 2018 10:25:51
the onlyreal things which would convince me of sam allardyce staying at everton next season would be his matches against pep and benitez, these are two managers which are arguably amongs the best in the world (maybe benitez has fallen down the pecking order) , i'd like to see him show optimism vs city and go for it rather than what he did with arsenal, and if we manage to convincingly beat newcastle (performance wise) i'll be open to giving him another season.

i think it was pirlo who said that raiola once ate a bunch of snails for a bet, doesn't really sound like the most likeable guy indeed ed.


{Ed025's Note - mino loves money ET and will stop at nothing to get his hands on it mate..

just for fun i'll be predicting our results for the fixtures after that
we should lose against man city, i think we might nick something from liverpool (not sure if its a win or not) , i think swansea will beat us, i can't really see us beating newcastle at home because i just don't think sam is good enough of a manager to break down a defence set up by rafa benetiz even with a squad with inferior talent such as newcastle, huddersfield, ehh, they'll probably be fighting for their lives so i'll say we lose there, southampton should already be relegated by then so i think we'll win at home against them and a draw at west ham.

actually, our fixtures away aren't that difficult, watford have just come back off a defeat, i think we have good chances to get at least a draw there, burnley have really stagnated for some reason and i can actually see us getting a win there, brighton at home should be a win, and stoke again are really struggling, especially considering that paul lambert has typically had a poor home record with the clubs he's managed because of his counter attacking style of football (i think it was at villa where i got this stat, my memory might be wrong and quite frankly i'm too lazy to look it up, if i'm wrong then please point it out) all in all i'd say the next few games are quite good for us.

i swear to god i saw these same type of posts after the leeicester win yet after we got mauled at arsenal everyone turned the heat back on
one game doesn't cover up for what's been happening this whole season.

imagine spending 200 million pounds in the summer, drawing against (to be fair we should have lost the game judging by how "well" we played) the mighty swansea city languishing in the bottom half of the table and then gloating about what a success your season has been

i'd love to see some of this fascinating logic sam would have used to rationalize this in his head.

if it's any consolation i will always have respect for your father for not budging on what he truly believed in, especially in this day and age where people value acceptance from society rather than fearlessly expressing themselves, please take this as a lesson from your dear (grand) father :)

as big as cryuffs achievements were i think they've had a massive negative effect as well, i'll elaborate on this later when i have more time, thanks for bringing the topic to light here ed :)

do you think the lack of freshness was the reason for rjikkards decline in barcelona as well? just curious about your thoughts.


{Ed001's Note - there was a lot more to it with Rijkaard. He was a bit weak with the players and Ronaldinho was getting away with doing bugger all training as he was off partying all the time. That led other players to stop putting in the effort as well.}

question ed, how do you think mourinho has managed such longevity? i think he's kept rui faria and co since his time at porto.


{Ed001's Note - he has done it the same way Pep has avoided going stale, he doesn't stay in one place for long enough.}
