I agree wholeheartedly. One of the many "classics" people love and anyone who doesn't simply doesn't have the brain capacity.

I found it poorly written too.

It's a great book if you're an angry 13 year old that no one understands, because no one else is smart enough to understand.

If you're still clinging to it in adulthood you probably have issues.

Did you tell him you think JD Salinger was vastly overrated and Holden is a bit of a crap character?

Yeah I've heard that it's a "teen angst" book.

I mean there's a somewhat infamous unhinged gentleman who held onto the book late into life.

Holden is a whiny douche & the book is incredibly overrated by people pining for the past.

It's perfectly OK to like Salinger, it's years since I read Catcher in the Rye but I liked it too....the Everton fan is a fucking wankstain though.

At the speed they are going football will be dead by the time they play their first match there.

They must be factoring the fact that they are actually going backwards in relation to their plans (ie West Ham, Leicester and possibly Villa are overtaking them) and that they cannot afford something like that for a mid table club.

Its pretty funny how pointless they are.

They never win anything, never in serious threat of getting relegated. Never achieving anything anyone actually cares about.
I genuinely believe the VVD injury is their "greatest" moment since 1995, at least their most relevant moment if nothing else.

Either way, 15 years is one helluva long time in footy!

That penny hasn't dropped for them yet. To be fair, they're not alone in that, lots of other fans still can't look beyond the fact that City have prevented us from winning more. There's lots of fans that are more interested in certain teams "failing" that their own teams succeeding.

As has been pointed out many times, even our relative failures represent a level of achievement many of them have never come close to.

I'd guess they also want the ability for big-money spending to get them to the top.  As long as City and Chelsea are relevant with their big-money push, maybe Everton supporters feel they can one day hit that jackpot.

If we didn't have big money billionaires pushing in the PL, Everton, if run well (and that's a big if), could at least be Spurs level, and would be pushing CL qualification every year.  With City and Chelsea in (and Leicester being run well these days), Everton aren't even a Top 7 team (as far as how competitive the team is long-term).  They've definitely been pushed down the pecking order.  A well-run Everton these days would still struggle to get close to CL qualification.  But on the flip side, as long as big money investment is around, they could also win the ownership lottery one day...

That’s odd, a couple of years ago the Champions League was apparently no more prestigious than the League Cup, and they’ve not not been going out of their way to congratulate Man City on getting to League Cup finals.

It’s almost as if they’ve changed their tune for some reason...

Yet again the lack of awereness of Everton fans is staggering. This is a team that has lifted themselves above the likes of Everton purely by being owned by human rights abusers for sportwashing, and have cheated to get there. But they are absolutely ok with having yet another hurdle in their way. Not only OK with it, but happy to applaud those who’ve done it.

They'll never see it. Their heads are cabbaged. As long as the likes of Abu Dhabi and Abramovich provide a hurdle for Liverpool, they don't even care that they are an even far bigger hurdle for Everton.

Of course, they are also clinging onto the desperate hope that the Uzbek gangster can propel them to unearned heights via cheating too.

Everton the submissive latex attired Gimp of English top tier football, weirdly the further away from trophies they get the more excited they get.

This might as well be their kit.

"Since its purchase by the sheikh of Abu Dhabi, Manchester City has managed to cheat its way into the top echelon of European football and create a global, immensely profitable football empire, ignoring rules along the way. The club's newfound glory is rooted in lies."

Indeed, what we regard as our worst nightmare of a season, worse than anything I can remember without exception in 60 years and we have still done better than them with their pedigree manager bedded in and being the 6th highest net spender in europe.

The only difference between this lot and Burnley is the astounding level of delusion. Burnley know they merely exist in the Premier League, Everton fans think they are some 'giant.' In reality though, Burnley command about the same level of respect and relevance as Everton.

Chelsea have beaten Everton in an FA Cup final (their only final in 26 years) and a League Cup semi final.

Man City have beaten them in a League Cup semi final and an FA Cup quarter final in the last few years. If they'd beat City in the quarters this year they'd have had Chelsea waiting for them in the semis.

Everton finished 6th in 12/13 with Chelsea and City in the top 4. They finished 5th in 13/14. Chelsea and City were both in the top 4. In 04/05 they missed out on an automatic CL place finishing 4th. Chelsea won the league.

Chelsea and City's emergence with all their billions has been a contributor to their trophy drought and their glass ceiling under Moyes and then when Martinez took over. They'd have likely won a couple of domestic trophies at least and reached the CL once or twice which they may have helped them kick on a bit and lose their loser mentality.

But they've stopped us winning more. That's all that matters.

Good summary that. I didn't realise the extent to which City and Chelsea have directly affected them.

It must absolutely kill them to know that we've achieved what we have without financial doping at the same time as them, with unprecedented levels of owner support have only managed to tread water.

Never mind, just keep blowing smoke up City and Chelsea's arses.
