I am - my bad english makes me sound uncalm .... probably like you on a french forum  ;)

That and the fact you constantly suggest that everyone expect you is stupid.

expect me to be stupid .. or except  ;)  If it's the latter you are wrong... I've never read anything stupid from Silas, Thom, GLewis  and you among others.

Except. Just a little observation over recent weeks. I think I noticed more after you were so bold as to suggest your son, when knowing his history, would beat 99% of scousers. Very bold to say the least, if not slightly insulting as well.  ;)

I think the one insulting was the one claming you had to be a scouser to know our history.  My best friend has had a season ticket for almost 40 years - he claims my son know more about Everton than any Evertonian he has ever meet.(I haven't meet any aswell)  ;) And by the way .. my son is an adult going to Liverpool at least 5 times a year + watching the blues in London. If you thought he was 7 then I can see why you think I was insulting. That wasn't my purpose.

I wasn't offfended, but I'm not scouse. I just think it's wrong to suggest that he knows more than 99% of Evertonians, let alone Scouse Evertonians, who generally are regarded as very knowledgeable fans. Which kind of ironically gets back to my original point.  ;)

And for the record  I think I hold the record for most  :thumbsup:  or  "this"

 :thumbsup: This.

I can't see Baines being worth much more than about £15m, great player though he is?

It's a fine balance.

Above that we'd have done well (even if it would seem disappointing) below that and it starts to edge towards not being worth it.

Yeah, I think that's right.

He can't really be compared to the fee Utd paid for RVP, Man City were after him as well, which puts the price up straight away and whoever got him knew they were taking a massive step in the title chase, even before a ball had been kicked. Strikers are generally worth more than defenders and one of the top strikers in the world is always going to be worth more than one of the top left backs in the world.

Oh dear.

Dejo has gone AWOL since I challenged him to back up his claim of ITK champion......

That tiny strand of credibility he has is looking like snapping at any moment.

Any credibility he had vanished when Holtby signed for spurs.

I doubted him long before that one.

In reality non of us know the finer details of a player's contract.

Not sure the abuse for Dejo is necessary.  It may well be nothing more than coincidence that United are interested but I don't think he is deserving the stick. 

The fact he's come back and attempted to gloat about is hardly going to endear him to anyone, that's up there with betting against you're own team.

No, because betting against your own team is a perfectly sensible thing to do.

Is it?

I've no idea whether your being sarcastic or not, but it's not something I'd ever do.
