Regarding Everton only, how optimistic a Blue are you?

Things are always great
Despite the odd setback, things get better
Life's a rollercoaster
Odd moments of joy don't offset the misery
The only reason the end hasn't come is someone fucked up
I don't understand the question

Im fickle though, a few good wins and ill be back on the Koeman express.
As much as i don't like him, we need him to succeed.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

fuck that, I'm going all out @indiantoffee1975  for this one

Is that a good thing?
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Overall I'm quite pessimistic with Everton as they've let me down so much but I never learn my lesson. I always get excited for when we play and somehow think we are going to all of a sudden come good

I don't think we will ever win a trophy again in our history though

And I don't think we will ever win a Derby again

So you could say I was a pessimist
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Im a realist.

I can see when patterns develop and know what's around the corner.

I'm done with Koeman because I know his departure is imminent.

We've been shite for all the time I've supported us but never actually been that shite, so it's hard to go ethier way for me.

Neither really. As much as I love to see us to win games and do well I certainly donít beat meself up about it, just a moan and a swift headbutt to the neighbours cat is sufficient.

I forget you're a young un. Think you're right about Koeman though

Pessimistic blue here.  Shared a season ticket with my 3 brothers from the age of around 3 (my Dad took one of us on the other one), remember seeing the likes of Mick Lyons, Trevor Ross, Duncan McKenzie, Bob Latchford.  Was lucky enough that my brothers who are 10+ years older starting taking me with them from early 84 onwards, so seen all the glory years of the mid 80's, although was only 9 for the 85 season.  Started going with my pals from about the age of 12.

We've been pretty much varying degrees of shite ever since, apart from a couple of Royle and Moyes seasons

Optimistic about the potential of Everton if they were to get major decisions right over the next couple of years.

Pessimistic about the people making those decisions.

I'm a realist, we're shit, I say what I see, people don't like it, they call that pessimistic on here, being optimistic is hard as an Everton fan after so many years of shit. The end

Funnily enough I was quite confident of our season ahead until the day the window closed, otherwise a pessimist where EFC are concerned.

Two things here, one its probably the way I am as a person, always maintain a higher level for personal achievement/targets and by setting the bar high each time,  I only want to strive for the very best and that's the mindset I have when it comes to things that may be out of my control including the team I support.

Secondly it's being fortuitous and brought up in an era when we're privileged and spoilt to some great football and great players under the Kendall era. That's the benchmark for me and I want nothing less. It might sound arrogant by why settle for second best.

You've watched a team who have played at one of the highest levels in world football longer than you have lived.  Some people have an expectation that they have a right to be the very best,  only the very best and always the very best.
It's quite amusing watching such people meet real life!
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

Always tried to be optimistic over the past few years but I'm tired and worn out now. I don't believe my own bullshit anymore. To many false dawns takes it out of me and I miss scenes of rejoicing Evertonians.
I think we'll waste another couple of years with Koeman before signing another disappointment  and hopefully, meantime, we won't get relegated. Really need us to get things right again as we did in the eighties as I hardly even think about upcoming games until kickoff.
Mustn't grumble though!
He's been devastingly underwhelming at goodison and seems to have developed a belief he can run straight through solid objects.

dont understand the question, I enjoy the game regardless, the result is beyond my control... its just like watching the third/4th seasons of walking dead atm.

Cant wait till Negan kicks in.. just hope it wont be  2-3 seasons time.
Koeman is taking Everton places. Namely, the Championship.
