Everton Message Board
I just love transfer deadline day........
.......Smudger turns us down, we cant get political asylum for an Inter refugee and the latest whisper varies between Jailbird Joey and Pikey Hunt!!!! What next Maradona?????
Far more entertaining than Saturday!!!
I see the plans have been shelved again for the RS new stadium.
The whisper is ........there is a problem with the planning permission on Environmental Health grounds. Increased capacity will mean even more shyte!!!!!
Oh thats funny.....Jeez I never get tired of that one!!!!!!!!!
Truth is we refused to pay his wage demands, which included a season ticket for his dad!!!!
After catching a bollock for my Tiago announcement (should have checked my source first!!) I am nervously mentioning the latest whisper....that we have agreed a deal to sign Wright-Phillips from Chelsea!!!
Would be a good signing for us except for the fact that we will have his idiot dad at home games!!!
I must apologise (I earlier reported that he was transfered) but for some inexplicable reason VDM is still part of the Blues squad and is travelling to Switzerland with the team.
Jeez we can't even give the muppet away!!!!
A fantastic result and good to see that they are getting the press coverage that they deserve.
Hopefully they can continue to move forward from this and become genuine title challengers.
You have been my source of factual information in the past and so it is to you I turn in my moment of need.
Can you explain to me how Eduardo was ONSIDE yesterday and yet Johnson was OFFSIDE?
Facts....Eduardo was past the last defender (clear daylight) when the ball was played to him. AJ was five yards in front of the last defender when the ball was played to him.
Eduardo made no attempt to get back from an offside position Johnson ran back almost fifteen yards to get on side before Vaughan played him in.
If you can answer this I will doff my cap to you and possibly by you a beer!
Imagine the scene........
The missus is out, the kids are asleep, cold beer in the fridge and EFC on the telly....perfect!
Cahill is back and scores....despite a couple of hairy moments Osman makes it two with a wonder goal....Arteta is having his own showboat show...even Graveson is warming up......the horror memories of Saturday are drifting away as I relax into my armchair....once again all is well in my Blue heaven.
Then Howard decides to gift them a goal and once again I am returned to the reality of nail biting and swearing at televisions, babies wake up, missus returns.....my heaven shattered!!!!
Vic seals it and I am once again returned to that 'well it was never in doubt' bravado that seems unique to us.
Drift off to sleep with thoughts of knock out stages, climbing the league, and ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz...........
Cheers Penn nice sentiments and just to add thats Ken's comment on Moyes feeling like a blue now made me laugh out loud. Quality!!!!
I want to answer 'exactly!!!!' but its too easy a gag!!!
He is the multi millionaire behind Tevez and others.
Tried to buy West Ham but couldn't agree a price before the 'egg' paid full asking price.
To Mr Lister,
I am not having a go by the way nor is it sour grapes about thursday night but it's the inconsistency of refereeing that gets us the fans upset.
I have no problem with a ref who is a stickler for the rules and refs accordingly. Likewise I have no problem with a ref who would sooner see a game flow than to pull up every minor infringement. What I do have a problem with is when a stickler suddenly lets something go that he blew for earlier or vice versa. (God I hope that makes sense!)
The ref blew for encroachment and had the spot kick retaken. A very correct decision according to the laws of the game. He then decided that what followed didn't require any action to be taken!
Penalty 1 : Anichebe didn't gain an advantage because AJ scored!
Penalty 2: Defenders didn't gain an advantage because the keeper had the ball.
Penalty 3: No advantage to anyone because AJ hit it over.
Consistency would decree that in none of the above cases would require a re-take.......my oppinion!
Ask yourselves the following question....if AJ put the first penalty wide would the ref still have blown?
Finally we got penalized for AJ scoring but they didn't for him missing and that is what has annoyed me.
Finished ranting now....gonna have a cold beer....glad for the opportunity to get this off my chest!!!

1. Bought a striker who stands up during the game!!!!!
2. Bought Heskey....then at least we wouldn't have raised expectations.
3. Bought enough stamps to post out tickets to fans!!!
any other suggestions?????
Just a comment made in one of the other threads about being upset by Vic choosing Nigeria over England and suggesting McClaren is at fault!!!!
Did it ever occur to people or the popular press that rather than being a snub for England the lad is actually Nigerian!!!???
He was born in Lagos and I am pretty sure that wasn't McClarens fault. He can be blamed for alot but not for the birthplace of our strikers!!!
