Two huge games coming up for this lot. Anything less that 6 points against Southampton and Norwich will not be good enough. A defeat at the weekend and I think Silva will be gone; the international break could be the perfect time for Moshiri to pull the trigger and get someone in.

They're just a distinctly average side with no goalscorer. Uninspiring, insipid, boring, toothless.

Then they will change manager and be a distinctly average side with no goalscorer. Uninspiring, insipid, boring, toothless

Just been quietly maturing in the slow cooker that is my brain. I'm hardly on Catcher's level of analysis mind.  ;D

Maybe Moshi's plan is to allow relegation so he can have a legitimate excuse to abandon BMD.  Then he can redevelop Goodison under the guise of fiscal responsibility and needing to upgrade it for when they're promoted.  ;)

Do they still do those? Didn't I hear something about them being stopped because they unfairly favoured newly relegated teams when it came to promotion fights? Or did I imagine that?

Yeah, if a team stays in the league for at least 2 seasons they get 55% of the telly money first season down, then 45% then 20%, if they're relegated after one season they only get the first two payments, last season's relegated teams will get just over £40m I think this season

They used to be paid over 4 seasons until around 2016 when they changed it cos of the advantage it gave relegated sides

Cheers thanks  :)

If payments are going to be made though, I'd say a team relegated after one season should only get the 45% and 20% payments rather than the higher rate; and when you consider that even the bottom placed team earns about £100m, then ideally one payment should be enough.

Don’t you believe it mate

Around 3/4 months ago Was at an older Evertonians house all day working with another lad who’s not really into footy. Will watch if it’s on sort of thing

He spent the entire day abusing me. The first hour I treated it as banter but I knew his claws were out from
The off. He kept coming back more and more snide until I simply went ‘Allright bloody hell’

But he didn’t leave it. He got more and more spiteful until my workmate actually said we should probably change subjects

He then starts talking to him and trying to inform him of ‘what’ he’s working with. At this point the atmosphere turned from contained abuse to all out rage. Heysel made its first appearance into the days Proceedings

We eventually got to a point where we shut him in his kitchen

He came out later with cups of tea and Everton pictures of the 60’s team. I thought ah he got carried away prob embarrassed. I’ll go into a bit of footy talk now, he’ll be ok. 5 minutes later he was off again calling Ron Yeats names and the story behind hate songs of the 60’s it was so utterly depressing to listen to. This transcends football so much it’s not funny. We have ruined this mans life because of how one sided it’s been and that goes for all of them. The most horrible thing you’ll see is actually the young ones being taught to hate by their vicious parents. Go and watch the leg break incident and you’ll see a woman with a child in the crowd grabbing the kids arms and waving them in a thumbs down motion furiously with scant regard of force

With this old guy I’d been close to mentioning my late old fella played  for Liverpool schoolboys. Thankfully I didn’t cos I’m Pretty certain he’d have stuck the boot into him aswell which at that point would’ve seen me chin him possibly old or not

Bloody hell.  :o

What on earth is wrong with these sad lunatics? I think I'd have walked off the job. You don't go to work to get abused by idiots like that.

When I was an outreach support worker I worked in the home of a family of staunch blues. It was back in the 90s and they had a knack then of doing well against us, particularly at Goodison, in those days. I spent an awful lot of time with that family for the lion's share of a decade and we never once had a cross word over football. Lovely people, lovely family who loved their club but had respect and knew where the boundaries were. I was exactly  the same towards them too.

I couldn't even imagine sticking around to be abused on a job like you were by that moron. There really are some sad, twisted people out there, aren't there?

Ultimately it doesn't matter who advised on the statement.  If the red card is overturned it makes the statement - and Atkinson - look totally stupid.

This one occasion, I understand it.

Atkinson I can forgive.  Why?  Well even a ref is human.  They see the foot going backwards and think shit, that must be a red. I get that.

The only reason I can think of is maybe Taylor on VAR was just as stunned. 

I suppose there's also a chance the ref feared the crowd boiling over in the immediate aftermath; although it's certain Son would have to have been subbed off anyway - he was in no fit state to continue.

At the end of the day, the statement has put them in a box that justifies a decision that was clearly incorrect.  If - when - the card is overturned they'll have to justify that position.

Well I don't blame Poch for being pissed off, especially as Atkinson doesn't seem to have received any kind of censure or demotion for his action.  The statement issued by the PL justifying the red was always a crock of bull but I doubt they're going to issue any kind of retraction.

Because if they didn't - something just wouldn't feel right to them....to the point they probably couldn't function that day until rectified.

Deffo our fault. I mean Hitler was rumoured to have been over here in 1912 to visit his half-brother Alois in Upper Stanhope Street.

As he wasn't from Liverpool he was clearly a glory-hunting RS.

In 1939 he started the war, so it's clearly Liverpool's fault.

The one about not trusting Son to mind a poodle?

That was on TW, normally a pretty rational site, but some of them are mentally disintegrating before our eyes.

Son fouls one of their players, causes a major injury but they trawl through the history books to bring up a tackle by Jimmy Case on Geoff Nulty yet ignoring the more recent example of Funes Mori on Origi, complete with badge kissing as he was sent off.

Which including the first world war means that Everton have spent the 2nd longest time as reigning champions behind their best mates from down the east Lancs so needless to say they had the last laugh, again
