    Great result today, Everton. Just watched it on MOTD and you played some great stuff. Easily the best team on the pitch.

    Does Dan Gosling have a comb over? :confused:

    Poor sod it he does. I'm only going by the picture in the link. I've yet to see the highlights.

    Saha has highlights. Probably best that Gosling avoids fucking around with peroxide in case he damages the little he has left.

    In America they know how to go bald with a bit of penache. It's the eyes too close together thing that has gone wrong for Landy.

    Apparently that is down to his Italian ancestry:

    Returning to the Utd game, there was a wonderful comment on WSAG's review of the game:

    revol68 what, fucking what?

    Their match review was a bit daft though,

    Rooney was shite, Berbatov, Fletcher and Valenica were far better than him.

    Sporting must be a tad confused and wondering if the team who played them last week stayed at home.....

    I was going to say knocked out first time they meet a decent team but Sporting are without a win in seven attempts in all competitions.

    We do seem to have a problem when we're expected to get a result. When we're playing against the big boys like Chelsea, Arsenal or Man U it seems like the pressure's off and we play our natural game and get results.

    But when we're expected to get a result against the lesser teams like Liverpool or Lisbon we freeze.

    I think Moyes has work to do on that.

    Yes, though that was so abject - much worse than Fiorentina - I think he should focus on the arse-kicking.

    Good to see Jags back though.

    Yes the 6-1 home defeat to Arsenal was a good example of your natural game.

    Moyes just goes to pieces when his team play Liverpool. Perhaps he feels intimidated by Benitez.

    That's a belter

    Anyway shouldn't you be off pulling yourself silly at players getting injured... :rolleyes:

    Still don't see the point of Anichebe. Bale was ripping us apart down the left while Victor was deciding if he could be arsed chasing after him. Useless.

    Hulot Ooh, me parts!

    When at Thy call my weary feet I turn
    The gates of paradise are opened wide
    At Goodison I know a man can learn
    Rapture more rich than Anfield can provide.

    In Coulter's skill and Geldard's subtle speed
    I see displayed in all its matchless bounty
    The power of which the heavens decreed
    The fall of Sunderland and Derby County.

    The hands of Sagar, Dixie's priceless head
    Made smooth the path to Wembley till that day
    When Bolton came. Now hopes are fled
    And all is sunk in bottomless dismay.

    And so I watch with heart and temper cool
    God's lesser breed of men at Liverpool.

    Is that really by Michael Foot? Just gone even higher in my estimation if it is.

    Yes it really is. He lived in Liverpool for a couple of years just after he left university.

    You'd be much better than your neighbours if you were just a bit more consistent :(

    Need to take a look at your fitness setup too!

    Good performance and great to see Arteta back on form. Shame Donavan's off soon tho. Very accomplished player.

    Consistent? You mean not affected by up to 11 players injured, we have played 2 games this season with all the first team available? I'm not sure 'consistency' is the issue as opposed to a massive injury list in the 'middle' few months of the season.
  25. agricola

    .... and the start of the season as well.

    That too, but it got ridiculous late last year.
  27. Discordia

    Well you seem to get a really good result...then go and lose to some wank team next week.

    Obviously the injury problems don't help, that really should be looked at. Someone isn't doing their job properly.

    afaik pretty much all Everton's long term injuries were horrendous freaks which couldn't reasonably be put down to basic fitness. May as well blame Arsenal's broken legs on their fitness regime.
  29. Fedayn

    Fedayn Diffidati con noi

    Well our current league form is certainly not inconsistent. Upto 11 players out, injured players returning then getting injured again. The 4 most prominent, Jagielka, Arteta, Yakubu, Fellaini all being out through bad injuries/tackles not fitness. Others also out because of tackles not so much a fitness issue.

    yeah, Everton's current form is pretty consistent in the league. Two defeats since the Goodison derby in Octoberish isn't it?
