Everton Message Board
I agree, we haven't played well for quiet some time IMO.
Sadly I think SB might be right, I think it will be extremely hard for us to finish in the top 4, especially as we are currently losing 2-1 to the chavs. From 11th down its as tight as a ducks arze, but I do agree, I think Wigan will drop. I'd also put money on Martinez being the next Everton manager if Moyes does go to United.
Did either of you expect us to be doing much better this season? When all is taken into account I think we have over achieved all season and I seem to remember most of us agreed 4-7th would be a very closely fought battle, in which we would have to do extremely well to finish 4th. IMO there has been a lot of upheavel and a worrying trend of failing to invest
It seems unless Joe Lewis decides to throw his cash about or sell the club to some oil baron, we will always struggle to compete witht he big boys, that said its 2-2.
I agree regarding Davies and Shaw, IMO Shaw would suit our style better. So you'd like to see Baines and Moyes come in? Do you think we could get Baines? I have always liked Moyes and admire what he has done at Everton, however I know many Everton fans who feel he is overly negative, Everton were not nice to watch v woolich and I think we might find his approach undesirable. Would you settle for boring, unattractive football if we consistently got top 4?
I hope you enjoed the game today, one hell of a game!
Your feelings about BAE are well documented and I partially agree with some of your views, actually I think he's a decent LB and I'm not sure we could do a lot better. However if he leaves, who would you like to see us sign? I'd like us to firstly give Naughton or Rose a go, or sell them or look at Luke Shaw of Southampton, I'd like to suggest Baines, but IMO we couldn't get him.
I completely agree Sfer,
Judging a player after 3.5 months and not even a hand full of starts is crazy! Surely as Spurs supporters we have a better understanding than most? Bale was on his way for a mil, now look at him!
Nice to see you contribute Sfer! you have been missed.
Its not JL,
Any manager or player worth their salt wants to progress as far as possible in every competition they're in, they may feel winning the EPL is beyond them, but coming out with such a statement at the start of a season or campaign just wouldn't happen, because no professional would do such a thing and if they did, they would be rightly lambasted.
But, you have contradicted SB, which means by default you are wrong, because she is always right about everything and even when you think she might not be, your wrong.
I seem to remember most of us felt that top 4 would be a huge achievement and that the battle for 5-7 would be closely fought, most of us even got the teams involved spot on.
When everything is taken into account, I think we are over achieving.
