Their second goal Godfrey makes no attempt to bloke the cross and Micky is slow to get out to block the shot.
Third goal all Garner has to do is beat the first man with the corner. Then when it comes back to him play a simple pass back. Can't manage either.
These are basic things you would expect players at this level to be able to do. Not attempting to block a cross being the one that pi##es me off the most.

Said that also about Garner, two chances at that corner and he still cocks it up, just can’t keep making silly mistakes like that at this level eh.

We're poor. I'll be shocked if we're safe by the last game of the season. Even those 4 points didn't give us the lift I'd hoped for,

{Ed025's Note - well we gave 3 of them back on Saturday Tomtom, Wet Spam were there for the taking mate...and we blew it..

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Mar 2024 10:55:44
Yeh, we had our chances. Dunno what the answer is but Shaun best find it pretty quickly. Good thing forest and Luton lost!

Got to be safe before last two games of the season mate. Arsenal is the last game and the derby has been rescheduled as the other lot play in the cup on the original date. There was a rumour that it will be played midweek before the arsenal game, don't know how true that is tbh but, if it is, we can't be just hoping for the best in them two games.

Points on the board and goals in games is what we desperately need, let's just hope they start banging them in soon.

Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool: brief review

Reckon 18 pts needed from 11 games (leaves us on 37 with 6 points deduction incoming). Where are they coming from?

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2024 22:12:55
I can only see 12 HK. We need some clubs around us to have a worse run than we do and, hope and pray out next punishment is deferred.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Mar 2024 01:37:30
Hopefully the punishment will be suspended as two of the three years have already been dealt with.
I think 10 points will then see us safe.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2024 08:14:10
Well my first game in a long time and I just couldn’t believe what I was watching and hearing.
We dominated play, never looked in any trouble, went ahead and then boom, back to old and trying to defend for 40 mins.
Started to look scared, the crowd was disappointing, they looked on passively for 90 min while the West Ham supporters boomed out around the ground.
We are lifeless, everything has been sucked out of us.
On a positive I thought Gomes looked class when he came on.

Agree2 0Disagree

03 Mar 2024 14:33:54
Totally agree. I feel we were terrible in the first half, playing out very risky manoeuvres from Pickford. We seem to run out of idea when passing forward. No movement or very little. Second half was better but dyche seems to refuse to change things. Like for like swaps. Agree with Gomes. He seems to be able to find a pass. Gets his head up and spreads the ball. Opening up gaps.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 18:03:17
I genuinely believe we have the players to finish comfortably out of the bottom 3 but not the manager. Change please.

Agree2 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 18:14:03
It was the players who couldn't put the ball in the net today and do we just get another Manager in to try and sort players bought by 8 previous managers.

{Ed025's Note - second half i thought our attacking play was better Bobslad, but it came at a price because we were so open in midfield, i suppose you cant win when you are a manager of this club mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 18:21:52
Problem is Reg, who is available? Might be better waiting until end of the season when managers become available.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 18:25:01
You’re wrong. How many times were we in good positions only for an inept player to mess it up, Harrison mostly.

{Ed025's Note - he was awful Bobby..

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 18:35:52
Yeah the way Dyche had 22 shots today and only scored 1 is shocking! He needs to go!

{Ed025's Note - love it NP..

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 18:56:35
Unless I’m mistaken the manager picks the team, and the manager makes the changes. Harrison was and has been poor last few, yet he still picks him. While the likes of Dobbin sit there wondering what the feck?

Agree8 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 18:59:31
Absolutely NP. The only thing I would add is keep Beto up front. How about Godfrey at RB and Patterson as RWB.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 19:18:34
What just fill the team with defenders?

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 19:59:43
Sorry chaps I thought we lost at home again today. We are talking about a man who keeps playing Harrison who is garbage, the same man who persevered with Calvert Lewin till it became embarrassing, the same man who won't give Dobbin a go, the same man who is clueless how to change a game or when to make a substitution, the same man who has the team playing like Wimbkedin of old. No Problem we may have had 22 attempts today but there has hardly, if any been a game when we have had more possession than the opposition. The man is a dinosaur who was taking Burnley down and was out of work for ages because he's crap.

Agree2 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 20:02:23
I’m really struggling to see us staying up this season, a team stays up by scoring goals. Yes Luton and Forest have lost their last 2 games but there are goals in those teams. We can’t lose and draw our way to safety.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 20:08:33
The same reason can be applied both ways. Yes the same players blah blah and management change but a certain DCL was in the England squad and banging all kinds of goals in when he was coached a different way. He came on and within a minute he's on the touch line of both wings back to goal 40 yards from the goal. He ain't scoring Ef all having to play like that. And that's one blokes fault.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 20:22:57
I actually think SD is still the man to keep us up. Yes he makes mistakes but he’s honest hardworking and gets the best out of a squad which has been relegation fodder for years! Our squad is threadbare and he did the business last year and will this. We haven’t got a pot to pish in never mind pay compensation to a sacked manager and pay to recruit another. Some fans never learn - grass isn’t always greener. We were very unlucky not to get 3 points today and have been unlucky on this winless run. We now need to all get together, support the team and manager till the last second of injury time in the last game of season because that’s what is needed to get us survive and I believe as the blue family we will!

Agree2 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 21:01:23
How can you be unlucky losing 3-1? We lost because of poor tactics, bad team selection and, abismal substitutions.

Agree5 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 21:26:51
I think that was because he was told to stay in and around the box that year Brown shoes, because we had a certain James Rodriguez… who although was a lazy git couldn’t half unlock a defence. We just don’t have that technically gifted player that can make a defence splitting pass.

WTF! SD isn’t the striker?
No prob = the prob
Get behind the manager and team.

Well if we got behind the manager and team, we would just about be on the halfway line lol.

Patterson isn't a FB Woburn, he can cross a ball and he will run at defenders. That was my thinking.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2024 23:13:41
We need to ask him, what is this story he keeps on about.

03 Mar 2024 05:32:19
DCL had his best season when coached one on one with Big Dunc.
Whatever you think about Dyche and his methods, that game should've been finished after 70 minutes. Enough clear cut chances to have demolished WHU.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Mar 2024 07:45:19
As others have said WT, DCL had his best season because he never left the box Ancellotti brought in James. All big Dunc had to do was slap some discipline into DCL. You are spot on about the game, Dyches methods were irrelevant, the chances were there. My son messaged two words; 'losers mentality'.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2024 14:18:04
What i don't understand is when we go a goal up we put 10 men behind the ball and let the opposition come at us and concede it happened at brighton and happened again yesterday to me he hasn't got a plan B never alone a plan A substitutions are always late when the games dead and buried now my personal view the buck stops with the manager now am not suggesting he should be sacked and i can't see it cause are board has vanished into thin air but if we was to go down the manager replacement scenario for me i would consider potter or julien lopetagi but just my view.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Mar 2024 20:36:56
To be fair Capone maybe Patterson could be coached into an attacking wide man. But not by this bloke mate.

Agree2 0Disagree

04 Mar 2024 13:34:48
To be fair, Andy, it wasn't so much putting 10 men behind the ball after scoring Saturday. We had 22 shots in total, 11 on target. If we put one or two of them away, then the game is over.

Beto was awful playing up top on his own. Granted, it was a great header for his goal, but his all round play is lacking at this level. He should never have taken the penalty, he didn't look confident as he stood there awaiting the var decision.

For a big fella, he doesn't do much in the air when Pickford is kicking up field. At least 3 times he was too busy looking at the man rather than the ball. I sincerely hope he improves but I wouldn't put money on it. Might be useful in the championship if we go down but he's definitely not premiership class.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Mar 2024 07:34:22
I was becoming obsessed by watching that steel cladding going up around the new ground. Watching the guys installing it and counting how many that had put in place each day. I even worked out how long it would take based on how many they had done each day.
Then suddenly it's stopped.
I really need to get a life this bloody football club is turning me into a zombie.
😂😂😂.

Agree2 0Disagree

01 Mar 2024 22:32:42
I think it's stopped cause of the scaffolding in cranes way. May be wrong though Woburn mate.

Everton open to handing Deli Ali a new contract. Fake News, wind-up or what!

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 12:32:23
Would all depend on what the terms of the deal were.

There’s a player in there and he’s struggled with injuries since we signed him - would be good to see him play for us particularly after we’ve supported him through his troubles and injuries.

However would have to be at a much reduced wage to make it a viable option particularly if he remains injured.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 13:01:39
Why would we want to offer him a new contract if he remained injured GD?

Bonkers to think like that, he needs to warrant one and be hungry to earn one.

Wanted it to work for Dele but it hasn't nor seems likely, best to move on for both parties, we can't do sentiment in our current situation.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 13:52:22
Not for me the day he turned up in a Rolls Royce for training at Finch Farm said it all best we get rid.

Agree5 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 13:58:28
I’m with Mocker.

I think Moshiri and Bill saw him as a James sort of signing but he never lived up to the hype and robbed us of £100k a week for the pleasure. He’s still doing it until the contract runs out.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 14:53:53
Would like to see deli get giving a try but can't see it respect to the lad honestly but i think we would save wages if we let him go same goes for gomes holgate maupay keane.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 15:07:02
Get rid. He was a waste in Turkey. Remember the day he turned up looking like a hippy at Goodison!

Agree3 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 15:43:02
Get rid, but not because of a Rolls Royce.
He could drive a spaceship as long as he had an impact on the pitch. He represents everything that has been wrong with our club since Mosh came in. Overspending on underperforming players.

Agree3 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 16:31:52
Only contract we should even consider would be a pay as you play heavily incentivised deal.

{Ed025's Note - just get shut and have done with it for me Gibbo, total waste of space if you ask me mate..

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 18:15:42
Need to end this home for the injured.

{Ed025's Note - im with you Woburn..

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 18:52:55
Sorry mocker - meant that if he was still injured but nearing a return then the contract would have to reflect that like a pay as you play deal as Gibbo suggested.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 18:59:02
Even though he has struggled with injuries and has mental health issues, it's hard to have any sympathy for him.

The lad had talents that set him above most players but he has done his very best to blow them.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely WT..

Agree1 0Disagree

29 Feb 2024 01:35:00
Saw this again on BBC transfer gossip for Thursday. If we offer him a contract given all the problems and issues we’ve got going on off the field concerning wages being too high, I’m done with this club. Seriously, he never plays and is one of the top earners at the club. Whoever dreamt up the initial deal needed their head to be given a wobble; whoever offers him another contract needs their head to go to the chop! Absolutely idiot decision making from the club if there is any truth in this.

Agree1 0Disagree

29 Feb 2024 10:03:19
If there is any truth in this Ali new deal, who at the club would be responsible. Whoever it is wants a long think about what has he produced since he arrived and at what cost.
Maybe a deliberate leek from the club to sound out fans reactions to the idea.

{Ed002's Note - The club do not "leek" anything to get fans opinion. At the moment the club cannot afford to play him.}

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Feb 2024 11:15:41
Surely in any walk of life you get a longer contract as a result of your performance at work. He is no longer PL level and needs to either move down 1-2 leagues or see if any takers abroad.
Only exception to that with Deli is if he has got over his mental health problems which as a result improve his standard and only club will know that.
Think we still have a duty of care as he appears to be quite vulnerable.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Mar 2024 07:43:00
On grass and training. The Club will see how he is doing. My question is not about his past but about his present and showing the coaching staff consistency. His injury problems are a concern. Ed says the Club cannot afford to play him. How much would they have to pay Spurs.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Mar 2024 10:12:48
At the moment it’s about 10m. That’s 10m we don’t have.

27 Feb 2024 12:30:56
Having read the appeal outcome, I still feel there will be a further points deduction for the 22/ 23 season.
Probably not 6 points, but I can see another 2 coming our way with Forest also recieving a similar number.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 16:48:52
Yeah me to, but let’s hope the points we got back gives the team a lift for the West Ham game on Sat.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 18:04:20
Let's concentrate on finishing 7 points higher than the 18th placed team and we can all celebrate the end of another horrible season.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 19:11:16
I read the report. I also saw a comment from Ed002 (he was talking about NF and Everton) . Punishment could be slap on wrist, transfer ban (makes sense to me) or points. The appeal report maintains points is the most appropriate. Let's hope not.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Feb 2024 06:52:17
It will be 4pts back.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 20:44:43
Nice to see Ellis Simms getting a first half hat trick tonight. Might get more in the second half.

{Ed025's Note - the way we set up Nick it wouldn,t matter if we had Haaland up front mate, all forwards need support and our centre forwards get none because our midfield are static and set up to defend rather than attack..

Agree1 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 21:00:32
Sorry ed it wasn't a stab at us, just nice to see the lad doing the business.

{Ed025's Note - it is nick and im happy for him mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 21:12:40
Saw him live couple weeks ago. Very static and average top of championship striker. Did score a goal though.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 21:16:59
That said, I don’t understand why we sold him and signed Beto….

Agree0 0Disagree

———Nonsense - don’t comment on things you don’t understand - it is embarrassing————

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 22:33:51
Whilst nice to see him score I think you need to look at the opposition he was playing against before anyone gets carried away and start moaning about selling him.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 10:35:39
I don't think it's too much about the opposition Gingerdan. More that he puts it in the net when given the opportunity. Something DCL and Beto are failing to do when chance opens up. Dcl can score as we saw under Ancelotti, but unfortunately he's currently a lone striker with zero support. Once he's told to stop chasing the ball and to stay in penalty area, he's more deadly. But we don't set up for that. May aswell play 8 defenders and leave Doucs and DCL to toil upfront on their own.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 13:57:57
Dentie it’s completely about the opposition.

Ellis has played 34 times in the championship this season and scored 6 goals!

He managed to get half his season total in one match the other night as was playing a team way below in the football pyramid.

Not sure why you say he puts it in the net when given the opportunity when his stats in the championship are so poor 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Agree3 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 17:11:00
As an ED alludes to the second charge if confirmed can include anything from a slapped wrist. If guilty, I am hoping for a slapped wrist but if not, a Transfer Ban would be a commonsense award. It would aid Everton in getting to grips.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 17:50:50
Chelsea dealt with a ban due to 40+ signed players and a youth team with several players of EPL standard. We don't have either. If we get done a 2nd time then a points deduction is counted this season, disastrous. A transfer ban would likely last 2 windows. And wouldn't affect us until next season. Having to bank on 3 promoted sides coming up and having a fruitless season to give us a chance of surviving but we wouldn't be stronger than Leeds or Leicester. Seems A Transfer ban is very likely the worst out come as it'd be a death from a 1000cuts. We are losing A lot of players contracts this summer and will be selling some too. A fine would be best as you say. Let's hope we can get a 7point gap between us and relegation and then we'd want a deduction right? It all smacks of yet another angle to whip the ridiculous EPL or whoever is ultimately responsible for this badly outlined make it up as you go PSR FFP shambles.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Chelsea. There is nothing to say a transfer ban would only last two windows and there is no indication of when it would start - but it will be one way for Everton to start getting spending back on track - but right now the club is bust and cannot afford the wage bill. The problem is Everton - not the other clubs and certainly not the Premier League who followed due process as they will with Notting Ham Forest in a couple of weeks - and the Everton again.}

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 18:13:27
I didn't say it had anything to do with Chelsea or why Chelsea got a transfer ban. But they did get a transfer ban and they were in a much more robust situation squad wise to deal with it. Simples.

{Ed002's Note - So it is completely irrelevant.}

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Feb 2024 18:32:15
Ed02 you are spot on Everton and more importantly the way the board of management have run this club making bad managerial choices and having to pay them off buying players for hugely inflated prices and putting them on gargantuan wages are just a few of the mistakes this club has made and there is no one else to blame except Everton simple as that and any fan that thinks any different is look at this sticky situation we have got ourselves into through blue tinted specs and afraid.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 08:29:54
Whilst 120k a week is an obscene amount to be paying someone for kicking a ball. In football terms it’s far from gargantuan. Certain clubs are paying their players 300k+, now that’s gargantuan.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 09:08:45
If we got value from our players that earn 120k a week, we wouldn't be in this position. This all started years ago with our scatter gun approach to signing anyone that was available for overinflated fees and wages. Doomed to fail from day one.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Feb 2024 12:45:49
why is no one at the top held accountable, the team has been done for something the owners did, they can now go to another club and do the same thing again,
