You know the rules as a player though, you cannot bet on football. There's so much out there to bet on that there's no need

I was talking in the Everton thread about how they are ripe for sportswashing, given the foundations they have built with all the signings.

But it got me thinking - do you see them emulating Brighton or late 2010s Leicester, and establishing themselves in top half?

I got myself wondering this weekend about their ceiling, because they've done quite the job so far.

Probably be the team keeping Everton up in 2-3 years time because they've failed FFP and had to sell everyone.

2-3 years? You think Everton will gain promotion a lot quicker than I do.

Cooper is doing a solid job there. If he manages to integrate the signings they've made over the past 15 months, I can easily see them finishing in mid-table this season ...

Even with Origi I still think Forest will have to pull up some trees to finish mid table

At least they should have a good supply

But Peter has the eclipses.
He's certainly partial to them...
