    I would actually say I think you played better last year, the ironic thing is this year you are so far doing what is required to win.....grind out wins.

    Fuck VAR. It needs sacking off. Now.

    Marco Silva: Everton boss looks set to remain in charge for trip to Leicester

    This seems to be the theme with us currently... Albeit disappointed he is staying. Strange how Koeman and Silva both have near identical results for us. He needs to go though, I was never in support of him and could not understand why Moshiri would desire him so much, he's done nothing to promote that level of trust...

    Moyes has been spoken of for a return. While he did a great job for us in the 2000's, we never had quite an attacking prowess but was fantastic defensively. Martinez on the flipside was atrocious at the back but quite fluent with attack. We've not had much luck with the rest of the managers who have taken it on though.

    I still think Howe would be an amazing acquisition for us if we could pry him away from Bournemouth he was pretty much my number one before Silva came in... Pochettino is unlikely as he is probably holding out for Man United. Arteta could be decent but again because we're so perilously close to the unthinkable we don't need someone relatively unproven, even though I consider he may be decent...

    The amount of severance we're paying though, Koeman, Allardyce soon to be Silva - Lord...!

    The thing with Pochettino is that he's getting paid his severance package in installments over the next 6 months and, if he takes another job in that time, the club can stop paying it. So it'd seem logical that he'd take a sabbatical (which I think he needs anyway) and review his options in the Summer (probably either Bayern or Real Madrid).

    Jose lives off severance pay from Chelsea, still find it funny you can't get away with just firing them... although I suspect the pay is hush money in most cases.

    Fucking Christ Arsenal are tragic. I know we've had it rough recently ourselves but... fucking Christ.

    Euro2020 draw makes your head spin a bit but England fans should be happy, and not much travelling in the group games either.

    Group A (Rome, Baku): Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Wales

    Group B (St Petersburg, Copenhagen): Russia, Denmark, Belgium, Finland

    Group C (Amsterdam, Bucharest): Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria (Georgia, Kosovo, Belarus, North Macedonia)

    Group D (London, Glasgow): England, Croatia, Czech Republic (Scotland, Israel, Norway, Serbia)

    Group E (Bilbao, Dublin): Spain, Poland, Sweden (N Ireland, Bosnia, Slovakia or Ireland)

    Group F (Munich, Budapest): Germany, France, Portugal (Iceland, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary)

    Its a weird draw system this time around

    And Romania could still end up in group C if they qualify

    Done!

    Can't believe they waited to announce until 7pm mind. Talk about dragging it out. It was for the best, especially after the experience within the last 24 hours... I just hope the chairman/men get someone actually decent in but we're in such a critical state that we can't risk any silliness now.

    They did handle it in a weird way. There were journalists who knew that the owner was deciding and they also knew the players had been asked to stay behind after training. It was obviously going to happen but they took all day to do it.

    All of a sudden, our match vs Chelsea next week is for a top 4 place. It's safe to say that, 6 weeks ago, I thought that ship had well and truly sailed.

    We've got some issues at the moment which makes me think this won't be fun.

    I find it really weird that our match against Leicester lands on Boxing Day of all days.

    Pattern recognition animal I suppose. But you can't help feel a little bit conspiracy about it :)

    Well Spurs start out with what would be a nice game.

    Carlo Ancelotti agrees deal to become Everton manager

    This would be absolutely amazing. When he left Napoli I thought he would be the best acquisition we could ever ever hope for, but that would have been a pipe-dream if anything. After that story broke though it seems Everton did come out and say that no contact has been tabled...

    ...So with that in mind - Dreams are to be crushed and we'll end up with David Moyes by New Year.

    Moyes would steady your ship. Ancelotti wouldn't stay there forever (but it would be cool) :)

    caLLous I am a FH squatter

    Sky Sports massively jumped the gun saying a deal had been agreed. Other journalists said there hadn't even been meetings yet but he's their number 1 candidate and it's likely to happen.
     
  22. caLLous

    Ok now it's sounding done.

    Carlo is a nice guy.

    Dortmund vs. RB Leipzig just kicking off if anyone wants a game to watch. Should be a good 'un.

    Carlo Ancelotti: Everton appoint Italian as manager on four-and-a-half-year deal

    *Squee*

    I am suprised that the arse didn't fall out of this one in the 11th hour. Hopefully we don't have to spend much money and he can get the best out of these players, individually there are some good players but collectively it's not working so far.

    Separately I see Arteta has gone to Arsenal. Coincidental considering the match within the hour - Hopefully we can get the result at least for Dunc!
