I amglad that the infighting on here seems to have calmed down and we seem to at last be getting on with supporting our great club. It is difficult when things are tough and some supporters (me included) can find it hard to see positives and can only see negatives. I would like to mention a couple of things that are not a dig at anyone but am just tring to show how things can be seen both ways. The first is Tosun. Apparently Chelsea were scouting him and their chief honcho has said we have got a very good player when he is up to Premiership speed. I have read some stuff about waste of money and Sam saying he won't play him. But it appears that he just needs to get up to speed. according to Chelsea. Another is Lookman. He chose to go to Germany and scored in his first game. Well that is great (him scoring) in my view. Gaining experience. But he was subbed next game and they were stuffed. So perhaps he is also not quite the finished article and maybe his attitude is not what is needed at our top level? Like I said, I amnot trying to stir another hornets nest. just point out that what initially appears a strong argument can sometimes turn around and be not what you expect. let's try and get behind our beloved Blues because it is easy to become hyper critical and then flippin difficult to become positive again. COYB.

Good post on the whole Degsy. Although when you say the infighting has stopped, not having a game this week may have quelled the posts.
Maybe some posters should get some warm weather training too or
Maybe it's the calm before the storm.

Love it Smit666! I am off to Portugal 25th for my own warm weather training. should have wifi there tho so you can't stop me 100%. In all seriousness, I know its not all sweetness and roses, but let's just hope we have turned a corner and can start on looking up rather than down at the league table.

The hype for Tosun was that he was the piece of the jigsaw that went missing when we unexpectedly sold Lukaku and failed to sign Giroud. He was not heralded as someone who neededto be brought up to speed. Having said that it seems a weird way to bring him up to Premiership speed by not playing him in the Premiership even when we are goals up late on in the game.

As for Lookman, footballer in "I want to play football rather than not even make the bench" scandal. He was substituted in the 85th minute.

I get your points Glennk. I really do. But there are always 2 ways to look at a glass with water to the half way mark. We all know that. Ed002 callssome of us "toxics". That's because the glass is always half empty with some people. or rather that the club can do no right what so ever. eg Lookman wants to play football. the club think he is not ready for 1st team and allow him out on loan. so that's wrong. He gains experience and scores. that's wrong. He is substituted and their team get thumped. that's ok. because with us he wasn't given a chance. and he proved he is good with the goal last week. Do you see where I am coming from? Substitute the word Tosun. At 1st we don't sign a player. that's wrong. Then we do sign one. but don't play him immediately. that's wrong. just imagine that Chelsea and Everton are right and he is a good player. but not quite fit enough and we play him and get thumped. and he loses his confidence. would that be wrong too? Like I say there is always 2 ways to look at that glass (or indeed Everton) and once you are in a glass half empty mindset. its difficult to see positives when they are actually there. Even Ed025 (one of the guys who incidentally got me out of the half empty mindset a while back) is slipping into it (I await my telling off from him now) . but together, we can start chipping away at this horrible feeling we all get. Just think back 10 or so games ago. We were ALL despondant after the closed season where we signed all those lovely new players. but were then let down (as Evertonians often are) by a series of events and factors to the point most of us expected relegation this season. Well it is starting to look like we are putting the sqquad together that we all crave. Walcott is an amazing signing. Coleman is back. Baines will soon hopefully be back. and if not. Martina actually showed he might at last be understanding what is needed from him. Davies seems to be staking a claim for a place. Niasse seems to be also staking a claim. preventing Tosun being picked at the mo. This is at last some positive stuff compaared to 5 games in this season. Sig and Rooney seem to be finding their feet too. Pickford is blossoming. We are Everton and it has always been the same. A series of set backs. Depression. then it's just like the seasons. Spring arrives and some unknown kid breaks into the team. Winter is over mate. Take off the thermals. look at the sky outside. sorry if this sounds a little patronising. its not meant to. But we are Everton. You me, the bloke down the road. We are Everton. My 28 year old son said to me the other day. "Dad, my favourite song is WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED".
. I remember singing that when I was about 11 in the Lower Glwadys. WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED.

{Ed025's Note - good post that degsy, your right about me being negative lately and thats because this club has a way of grinding you down, sometimes a supporters frustration can get the better of them and as much as they want to be positive something will happen (like the arsenal game) that just destroys your faith, i want the club to succeed so much that its hard when i see players and staff that dont seem to care as much as i do, im intending to be as positive as i can until the end of the season mate and take it from there..

As regards Lookman, the club do not KNOW that he is not ready for the first team. They JUDGE that he is not ready. They are entitled to make that judgment. The validity of that decision is about to be tested in Germany. It will enable us to make a more informed judgment of the club's managing and coaching set up.

As I have said previously, Tosun was hyped as the man that was going to give our attack teeth not as someone who was not ready to play. I said here before that I have always worried that the guy was being given a cross to bear rather than one to finish. I think to say that he may not be better than Niasse, brilliant attitude but not as brilliant skillwise, says everything you need to know.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Feb 2018 08:42:01
Glennk mate, I am sorry if I have branded you together with the negative lot. (that has included me at times and Ed025) . The 2 points that you raise here. you say the club do not know. but judge. Then you say that the validity of their judgement is about to be tested in Germany. I get that point. But you used that specific point in your original post as if that judgement was already completed. ie. you said he scores a goal. says it all. But it doesn't. that's my point. It says he scored a goal. that's not a run of games. Nor is it the whole game scenario. Its one goal and he did the same for us when he came on against Man City last season. I thought then (and still think now) that he might be ready soon. But from what I have seen in his overall play, he is not yet ready. yet you are using him as a point to prove all what is wrong at Everton. if I remember your original post you said "says it all". But it does not say it all. that's my point. It says he scored a single goal. Re Niasse and Tosun. Niasse in my view is a terrible footballer. But you cannot deny that he works his proverbials off. in a similar way to how Marcus Bent used to. Like the season we qualified for the Champions league with the worst goal difference ever if I remember correctly? Because Marcus Bent was a workhorse too. Now if Sam Allergy thinks that what we need right now is a grafter (who incidentally scores more goals than anyone else other that Rooney) then that is something I agree with. I wouldn't use the fact that Niasse is keeping Tosun out the team as a negative. I see that as a positive. Like I see Lookman playing for a top team and gaining experience as a positive. I have to say you seem to be in a mindset whereby EFC are damned if they do and damned if they don't. I don't mean that as a nasty criticism. what I am saying is that it is easy with Everton's history to get into that mindset. I also remember it just before we won away at Oxford Utd all those years ago. Perhaps it is our mentality? Or just the lap of the Gods? But mate, Spring is here. We have started to look a bit more secure. Rome was not built in a day. We all know we need more / better players. Let Moshiri/ Allergy get on with the job in hand and try and enjoy Spring. Its not all and gloom like it was 15 weeks ago. COYB.

Hey Ed 025 Good article from Dan Meis today on the important feedback he is getting from Everton Fans, good to hear that the powers that be are listening to the Fans eh mate.

{Ed025's Note - and about time too mate..

very quiet on here last few days what's up with everyone?
ill try get a conversation started.
if i gave you a tenner what would be your first goal/ final score bet for the weekend?


mine would be tom davies first goal everton win 3-1 which i think i will actually have a go at as av just checked and its 250/ 1 worth a pop haha.
so come on what's everyones imaginary bets.

Agree0 1Disagree

21 Feb 2018 12:01:47
Give us a tenner then and I will tell you. only joking. I say Tosun on as a sub and nicks a winner 3 mins from the end. after Niasse has got under their skins all afternoon with his harrying alongside Davies. A mega performance from Jags and Pickford saves a penalty. If I get all that right, I deserve more than a flipping tenner too!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 12:49:46
I'll go for richarlison first goal and 1-1 draw. Think Sam may set us up to defend and snatch a late winner.
I hope not would rather play with geuye Rooney and Davies in middle and try to beat them. They are struggling recently.

Agree3 1Disagree

21 Feb 2018 13:34:53
Rooney first goal 20 minutes in but he gets sent off after 60 minutes. Watford equalize from corner/ free kick/ penalty 65 minutes, but Tosun bags 2 in final 10 minutes. Final score W1-E3. I wonder what the odds for that is 😜.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 16:01:43
Gonna be a tough game.
Ill go walcott first goal and 2-2 with gerry getting a late equaliser.
Wish i could go for a win but it will be tough.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 18:19:04
Siggy free kick, Watford score two late goals when defence uncommonly go into panic mode.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 19:42:58
I'll go with a Williams own goal but the mighty to win 2-1. Siggy and Rooney.

Hey Ed 025 just a quick question mate, if as being stated in the rags that Mangala does in fact have knee ligament damage and will be out till the end of the season at least, does he go back to City or does he stay on our payroll cheers mate.

{Ed025's Note - he will more than likely go back to city GB, clubs have insurance policies for things like this so it wont affect us much mate..

Agree0 1Disagree

19 Feb 2018 21:04:54
Thanks Ed.

{Ed025's Note - no probs mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 06:53:28
May seem like a daft question Ed but if he does go back and someone else was available could we not get them on loan or are we not allowed?

{Ed025's Note - not allowed im afraid mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

Lookman is starting for Leipzig tonight when they are playing to go second place yet he couldn’t get on the pitch for us.

Agree5 2Disagree

20 Feb 2018 11:38:14
He got subbed and they lost. FYI. If you are bothered at this news?

Agree1 2Disagree

20 Feb 2018 11:45:18
How did he play Degsy? Must be tough getting used to a new league and culture. Wish him the best of luck.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 17:23:46
I dunno BJU. I seriously hope he does well and comes back and settles in with us. I did hear he was not settling in the North West and was struggling. He did score in his first game. both for us and Leipzig, so the kid obviously has talent. but he is still a little way off being a first team player in my view. and Sam Allergy's view more to the point. He is quick, skillful and has a good shot. But on the other hand, he loses possession often, passes poorly at times and loses heart very quickly. Not attributes you need when fighting relegation as we were a few games back. A loan spell is exactly what he needed. and I agree 100% with Sam A on this. a homenation club would have suited him better. If he struggles in Liverpool (where everyone makes you welcome) how will he do in darkest Germany. If he thinks its cold here. he will find it a few degrees colder there for sure! Minus 10C Forecast this weekend!

Agree1 1Disagree

22 Feb 2018 01:28:00
Hope he comes back with a little more experance, and a lot better attitude, has the ability to be a top player, but more listerning less of the know it all.
