Okay, six games left in the season. It has not been a fun year.

First, for the last five years I do not believe our preseasons have been challenging enough.

Second, I do not believe the last 3 managers (Unsy not included) have been fountains on inspiration and leadership. (If I'm off base, please feel free to correct me. )

Third, our new owner wants to win, but is a novice to the football business as the lead owner / investor. But companies make bad hires every day, and leaders know when to call it a day, cut bait, and start over.

Fourth, we have had a lot of injuries.

Fifth, no striker or RB or LB cover.

Sixth, major acquisitions took too long to bring in. I expect it to gel after a full preseason.

Seventh, the PL is truly six teams and 14 also rans. Despite our awful year, we stand ninth with 5 of our six games remaining very competitive, so 7th or 8th is not out of reach.

Eight, we have played some youth: DCL, Tosun, Davies, Holgate (for a time) , Kenny, Beni B. Lookman is getting work in Germany, and others are out on loand. Should be an interesting pre-season.

Ninth: Let's see what the management team is next year. Let's cheer for the team for the rest of the season, and let's get ready for a rocking ride in 2018-19.

{Ed002's Note - I expect Lookman to leave.}

I wish him well then. We have seen a good number of young plays come through the last few years (Galloway, Fatbutt, etc. ) yah look so promising in limited action, so it is our natural tendency to view their potential as an indication to how the player WILL be game in and game out in the future

Sure, I’d love to see our U-21’s all graduate to the first team and lead us to CL football. Never going to happen. We fans understandably over romanticize our teams. It leads us to expect too much. We’re a mid table team that hopes to work our way into the top 4 every few seasons. We have potential.

Next year will be better.

I truly meant Garbutt and not fatbutt. Pesky spell check (or my third beer of the evening at the beach)

And again a shout out to Ed002. No fan likes their bubbles busted but sometimes it has to be done. When one is not enjoying an ongoing reality, moaning about it or denying iris not productive.

I appreciate the Ed002 reality checks.

Now let’s go beat them pesky Reds and turn Klopp’s grin into a massive frown.

Getting tight now to beat the 2 47 point finishes of Mr Brownshoes.

If Lookman isn't bought back into the fold and given the feeling he's wanted. Well that will sum up what a joke we are.
We should be building the team around him and Davies et al.

The rumours of homesick are crap because why go Germany if true?
He came to us because we play the Kids. He's at the right club.

It'll be a. massive slap in the face if he is allowed to leave. I'm sure he will be very happy to play 30 games all comp next season.

Bolasie I like him as a person. And he did out in a few standout performances at Palace. Never done it for us. He's a woeful player. I'd have a raw Lookman all day over Bolasie.

Ed02 that's really got up my nose. I hope you're wrong or just on the wind up. The kids going to be a mega star.

{Ed002's Note - Why would I "wind you up" - you don't seem to get that players come and go, they are no more than transient employees of a club. Other clubs being interested in a player is common - Everton are interested in players - do you think they should stop scouting players, trying to buy the best ones? It is not a "slap in the face" to let a player leave. It seems pretty hopeless trying to tell many of the Everton supporters anything about transfers, you just don't seem to grasp how the game works.}

Cant see why the ed002 would want to wind us up we are quite good at doing that to each other as it is. As for Lookman staying or going that will be down to the management and coaches. If they want him i'm sure he will stay after all he is contracted to 2021, highly unlikely to put in a transfer request. Definitely one for the future hope he stays.

Of course as Ed says players come and go, if a Club wishes a player to remain, then the incentive should be sufficient for him to remain. In Lookmans case, personally I just do not get it, to me the lad is a wonderful player with bags of potential still to be released. We/ I do not see what is going on behind the scenes and/ or training pitch. But obviously Managers/ Coaches must be seeing something in not only Lookman's case but the likes of Klaasen as well to not include them in matchday Squads. Pity about Lookman but as Ed says he is expected to go.

Have to think which of our players would get in top 5 teams. I think Coleman is only one. Very difficult to say that but realistically we are 8 good players off. That’s a left back, 2 centre backs, all the midfield and one striker. Fighting for 5-7 is realistic I’m afraid. I thought Walcott was pointless signing and not impressed with bolassi klasson Keane shniderlin. That lot is 100 million - we can’t just chuck another 200 million at it. Need a manager in that will be there for 5yrs minimum to stop mid match of Moyes Martinez Koeman allidyce players. They seem incapable of playing together.
