Premier League 2018/2019

I never had anything against Everton but my god what a pathetic bunch…their fans hoping they loose and with the team they put out it looks like they wanted too…


#1165

Playing 3 games in a week there was always going to be rotation. Makes perfect sense to prioritise the two more winnable games (wolves & Watford) over the City game. Also losing 1 nil is to City is hardly pathetic, they are doing better than they did against Wolves.


#1166

Oh did City win? How many are they behind now?


#1167

Everton made a massive mistake in appointing Silva as manager. Don’t what the hype is about him. Similar to his time at Hull and Watford, Everton are leaking goals on set pieces.


#1168

So you didn’t see the game, then?


#1169

I expect Lpool to come out fighting now, they’ve lost the favourites tag, they need a bit of momentum, maybe against Bournemouth with the performance or maybe against the odds a bit they’ll produce it at Old Trafford.
If ManC can get the win against Chelski then the pressure is really on. If they drop points in that game and Lpool drop at OT then Spurs have the chance to get right in amongst them

It wasn’t great, but that was probably still Everton’s best performance since the Burnley match on Stephen’s Day. The crowd were fully behind the team and any suggestions that they wanted them to lose are nonsense (not saying that City going top wasn’t seen as a silver lining to the loss, but that is all, the fans wanted a win).

The big problem with Everton is that since Moshiri has come in there have been a long list of poor recruitment choices (both players and staff) and strange structuring decisions. Until some of the off the pitch issues are fixed I don’t think any manager is going to make much of a difference. Although having Silva bring in an assistant coach who specialises in defending set pieces might help.

Squires sums up some of the issues nicely.

Squires is brilliant. He did a great one on O Neill and Keane a while back.


#1172

You just know a conversation was had in Nantes as soon as he went missing.


#1173

Somebody told them they were gonna welsh on it.


#1174

Klopp isn’t playing him in the position he can succeed the most. Anyone who has seen Naby at Salzburg or Leipzig knows his qualities and just how good he is.


#1175

I’m sure he was a lazy fooker there too especially tracking back and at set pieces.


#1176

How many of those games would you have seen?


#1177

Ooooh, yer for it now Sneakers… :laughing:


#1178

I absolutely understand. Koppites are insufferable !!!


#1179

The young lad asked me earlier did I think City would win. I said yeah, Chelsea are still flakey as hell …

A Sarry sight …


#1180

Heard somewhere that if the league started the day Ole took over United would be 4 points clear at the top.


#1181

They’re a shambles.


#1182

Listening to commentary yesterday and Brian Kerr was saying how Liverpool could push on and score a few goals and improve the GD gap with City playing Chelsea today. Not the way it’s worked out.


#1183

Everton’s midweek performance looking better by the second.
