Today was about pragmatism and we come out of it much happier than them, which is genuinely all that matters.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I don't want to have to.

He can come in, stop us from being Koeman's shite, and fuck off and let a proper manager come in and take us forward to a level he's never been at before.




But you don't have to. He's just avoided what the whole world considered would be our greatest humiliation ever. Do you want the School of Science? Be patient. It takes times like this to provide the perspective. You want a cure for madness and are listening to the mad.

Love the end of Sam's interview.

"I'm enjoying tonight, Newcastle can wait til tomorrow."

One thing I do notice about him though, he never says "us". It's always "Everton." Whether that's because of the short term contract or what, I'm not sure. But I do think he cares.

If we can average a point with our full strength team away from home at the top 4 clubs then we are doing very well.

To manage a point with 5 major injuries and a terrible right back playing left back is even better.

Time for some of the haters to give Big Sam some credit for getting a point against the odds

In that same interview which I agree was brilliant he says "us" on several occasions, the only time he refers to "Everton" is when he says something like "if anyone wants to see a great example of an academy they should look at the Everton acadamy.

Fair enough, I must have missed that. I like him though.

He grew on me quite a lot about about 5 past 4 this afternoon! Koppites and pundits giving Klopp a hard time on local radio phone in.
There was a refreshing resilience in our defending today that I haven't really seen since Moyes left. Every stat will show why 'they' should have won but any neutral would say that defence deserved the point. A margarita to celebrate now. Bring on the cup game.:-)
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

The whole team S.A has brought in gives me real reason for optimism going forward,no matter how long he,s here i think with the people in place i just get the feeling attention to detail is paramount.This is basically the group that were trusted in the national team,and forgetting all past allegiances i think were in good hands.Looks also from the outside that despite reservations on Walsh,he to looks happier amongst our team of manager and coaches.You just never know in football but perhaps with the right recruitment,S.A.could well exceed all our expectations and surprise people like me who was sceptical about the mans appointment.

Made me laugh when the camera cut to hin early in the 1st and he's shouting "Get the fuck over here" to someone.

Can't knock the fella so far.

I was suprised they put that out on TV !

Sam was really aggressive towards them from the touch line, no doubt he cares

Wasn’t an enjoyable watch but you have to say credit to him for getting them so well drilled in such a short space of time. Even if you are very anti Big Sam, credit goes to him today for shoring up one of the most shambolic back lines we’ve ever seen.

Going forward it was fucking turgid, Big Sam nightmare stuff. But we got a jammy one and thems the breaks.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I have a feeling we will see a beautiful rivalry develop between Klopp and Allardyce over the next 12-18 months.

Ace that. Old school. Commentators were being proper anti-Everton cunts at the time as well. Then Sammy Lee pops up and the Kopites start howling. Preamble to Klopp making a proper cock of himself. Can't wait til we knock them out the cup.
