There's definitely something about seeing someone in Everton gear, sat in the dugout at Goodison that changes things.

I'm not a fan of his, as people know, but I can already feel that changing and softening. Does that make me a hypocrite? Probably yes, but there we are.

If he gets a win on Sunday, it's going to give him a lot of room to get things into order. It will set him up with the fans for weeks.

My lifeís a bit more enjoyable when I can get behind Everton.

I love a moan like, Iím sure Iíll be calling for his head some point in the next few weeks but fuck me, Iíve been so much more relaxed since we won a few games... i might even be able to enjoy this season a bit.
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.

Last year I began to care less about Everton and football.  I don't know why.  This season has been very strange but I just realised that us not having a manager has probably been a stress - particularly going 4-5 weeks having to check for updates, seeing us getting stuffed week after week, and everyone arguing.  It's just nice to relax a little bit, even if its for a week or so.

Superb stuff. Nowhere near joe kinnear level yet but on the right track.

That said, he may not know his name but I liked all that stuff about pushing him up behind the striker so he can arrive in the box - its about bloody time. Really looking forward to what he can produce over the rest of the season.

Charles Insomnia was quite different from Joe Kinnear wasnt it? Haha.

Hopefully he does get the best out of Sig and decides to use players in the correct positions.

The problem with this squad was we where forgetting to even do the basics. He will sort that out at least, I'm sure of it.

I was very much against his appointment, not because he's a bad manager, just I saw it as short termism and how we'll just have to start all over again in 18 months due to him probably not being good enough to achieve our ambitions of top 4.

However just him sitting in the stands made the players play for the shirt against West Ham, then we beat Huddersfield... It's amazing what a bit of organisation can do, plus players seeing a manager with some stature in the game coming in.

I'm now actually a bit excited by the possibility of what he can do, I have a good feeling about this, we've got some serious issues in the squad issues but some very good players too... A good Jan and summer window, his organisation and authority over the squad, his excellent backroom staff.  Maybe, just maybe we'll all be surprised by what he achieves.

As long as we're getting behind him, especially on match days, that's all he can ask.

Just makes you a Everton fan doesn't it?

Football fans are strange. From threatening of self-harm  to sheer love in a few days. Will they return to the hatred towards the "corrupt fat headed twat" after we get battered at Anfield?

I was one of the minority who were glad of his appointment but he's done shit all to prove us right or wrong so far.  And how could he?

Early days but I do think heís got a good set up. Loves having a proper entourage doesnít he

Sammy Lee barking orders, Shakespeare in the stands communicating via his headset to get a different vantage point, has his own fitness and nutrition guys and gals, appointing a psychologist. Just trying to get every little advantage he can and leaving it upto experts in those fields so that he can focus purely on getting his message across to the players

Seems to be starting by trying to make the defence less leaky and the team more solid, and rightly so

I just hope he can lay a solid foundation and then add some attacking excitement into the mix to take us to the next step
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

He is was never my first choice, but you can't help but admire his professionalism and methodical approach to the job. He leaves no stone unturned when it comes to maximising performance.

It's good to see.
