Talking Everton

If I was a true blue, I'd be shitting in my pants come January as the likes of Leyton Baines, Slyvian Distin, Phil Jagielka will be handing in transfer requests while Everton go into freefall.
They were lucky to win at Blackburn as they won't get many out of jail cards this season, not without Arteta there though!

yup they are in the shit it would appear..

they should have lost to blackburn....very lucky to get away with 3 points.

they have no strikers now well other than saha who is good but injury prone, and some random argie no-ones heard off

But it's ok because they've signed Drenthe


Before they sold arterta i said they'd do well to finish top 10....

It's a pity the situation they seem to be in. Obviously I wouldn't want them to be too strong, financially or in any other way, but with our experience of what it's like to have the club teetering on the edge of disaster, then I think we can be sympathetic towards Everton fans.

Of course they won't appreciate it but that's their problem. And with luck it will simply infuriate them more.

He's got nowhere to go really. Ideally he would need a club of a similar stature and squad strength but better finances but where do you find one of those? I guess if Villa sacked McLeish ....

I think Everton are still better than many other teams in the division and did okay without Arteta for a lot of last season. Still they are clearly on the decline.

No sympathy whatsoever. In some of our darkest times recently, an Evertonian who I worked with and lives near me never passed up an opportunity to rub my nose in it and positively rejoiced in our misery. I know a lot of Bluenoses were exactly the same. So fuck them.

Aye, it's hilarious. I'd be happy to see them teetering on the brink, lurching from crisis to crisis, but never going under for a long , long time.

Yeah but in my plan you can take the moral high ground, get them even more worried and piss them off at the same time.

Like fuck I do, fuck them. Right in the arse.

Still remember the stick they gave us just 12 months ago. Hope they go bankrupt and sell their best players. Top class players like Cahill and Jagielka.

In fairness Baines would have until we signed Enrique. But Neville

Bizarrely the bitters I heard on the radio this morning thought that selling Arteta was the right thing to do.

If selling one of your best players, not having the time (or possibly inclination) to replace him and using the money to pay off yet more debt is a good thing then I clearly know very little about football.

I guess if they had to sell one of their best players Arteta is probably the one you'd sacrifice given his recent injury record. But certainly having to sell your best players is never a good position to be in.

Agreed.

It was the combination of the lateness of the deal allowing no time for a replacement and the fact that they would probably never see the money re-invested anyway that I thought would be discussed but it barely got a mention.

To be honest I wasn't surprised that Everton sold one of their best players, and did it so late in the window. From what I've heard they needed to sell someone to pay off the banks so this was always going to happen, doing it so late in the window gives Kenwright an easy way out.

Most Everton fans I know hate him, so were probably resigned to this a while ago. I suspect Everton fans were happy that it was only one of their best players they had to let go of, and argueably the easiest to replace. I'd imagine that this summer has been much better for them than most fans would have predicted at the end of last season, so I'd imagine that at least partly explains why they weren't so angry.

they must be so close to the brink financially it's almost not funny.

If they actually went down from the PL I struggle to see how on earth they'd ever get themselves back up again and as someone said earlier could and probably would go the way of Leeds and Wednesday.

If their fans could take any positives from their current situation I suppose it would be they have good reason to live up to their nickname

i'd agree that 'off the pitch' it's prob the best move

reports were they had to sell and needed anywhere between £10m and £20m to keep going.

Out of their saleable assets

baines
Jaigelka
Rodwell
Arteta

they wanted rodwell gone for £20m, but it never came as his form and early promise dipped.....and out of the other three, he'd be the least important.


for me the bigger worry is their fowards....they are completley fucked up top

from wiki - this is their list of forwards...

Saha - good player but terrible injury problems - do well to get 20+ games from him

Magay Gueye - who?? signed last year made a few sub appearences and a couple starts - Shite

Aposolos Vellios - WHO? 19 yr old greek, signed in jan...3 appearences...SHITE

Ah....Victor Anichebe - Been at everton through the ranks...Made his debut 5 years ago and has played 97 times....scoring 7.....Dirk Kuyt has famously scored more goals at Goodison park than him - SHITE!!!

Denis Stracqualursi - WHO just signed on loan...pug ugly footballer who has played for no-one of note, and scored a few goals for them - bound to be shite.

Jose BAxter - youngster...played 7 games since his debut in 2008 - no goals....shite

They'll probably stick Cahill upfront.

It'd be well funny if they were relegated, but with Blackburn, Swansea, Norwich and QPR not looking that good i doubt it.

Anichebe is their most 'senior' forward with 91 appearences for the club

Some more stats to laugh at....

Saha - 79 games 26 goals
Gueye - 5 games 0 Goals
Vellios - 3 games 0 goals
Anichebe - 91 games 7 goals
Baxter - 7 games 0 goals
Stracqualursi - New signing (played 38 games and scored 21 goals last season for fuck knows who in the what league?)

In total - Evertons 6 senior strikers on their books (according to wiki)

Have a total of 185 appearences

AND

33 GOALS



Surely that can't be right

has any team ever anywhere....been in a position with so little quality up front...

even if we are generous...and make goal scoring super star hero Tim Cahill a forward....His stats are

196 games and 54 goals

gives us a new combined total of....


381 games

AND

84 goals


Between 7 players -

So if i am right....one of those 7 players....will score one goal about every 5 games
