The club is useless from top to bottom. Honestly, I've got two sons of 16 and 12. Both can't be bothered even watching Everton anymore. The youngest has said he cba watching the game tonight coz we will get smashed. The club will be obsolete in a few more years coz the next generation aren't as hoodwinked as the rest of us. I don't blame Barkley for moving on, he was publicly slated by an incompetent manager that should never of got the job. Everton tho aren't we, born not manufactured, peoples club , we are an embarrassment
you made a point there about your lads not being bothered about going the game, and i think its a valid 1 . When i cant get there i offer my ticket to my lad, he says he cba too, his mates dont want it either. i cant remember seeing many under 21s (approx age) at the game for a while now. Would be interesting to find out how many 21 and under are at the game and what percentage have bought the ticket themselves, because going the match does seem to be losing its buzz for some next generation fans
It is what it is, if I pay money to a business I would at least expect it to be ran accordingly and maybe that way it would filter down onto the pitch that where we are and have been for the last 20+ years isn't acceptable, to me it isn't anyway. You might enjoy the way we sell our best players without replacing them. Also when we do eventually sign players it takes a lot longer than most clubs to get it over the line. How we accept managers being below average for far to long until real damage has been done and then we go and sign a relegation battling manager. We haven't improved since Moyes, we have gone backwards. The clubs a joke

from what ive been told, his mrs is a sister of a / some ganxtas, he got involved with the wrong folk., he loves Everton still, but they are forcing him out of town..

but i have no idea how real that is, kinda makes sense from how the managers we have had have spoken about him...
van den hauwe all over again ?

Kind of get the point that young lads not going the game. I stopped at 18 but that was cos I was playing. When I stopped I renewed.
Id imagine there's a few out there the same as me
Sadly tho as well, the teenage generation now are very much want it now, unsociable bunch.
Totally get that, but i would only ever play for Saturday morning teams because all that seemed to matter to a lot of us through the late 70s, 80, and 90s was getting the game at goodison or the odd away game, it was a brilliant feeling going the game then, the atmosphere, a social gathering,  and we were shite then for most of it apart from a purple patch mid 80s, since this premiership started the magic has almost gone, its all about money now and what they can screw out of you . it does seem a chore to go these days, so i can totally understand the youngens not being attracted to it now

Is there still Saturday morning leagues? Non round here like

Plus, lads are earning between 50 and 120 a week round here to play at average levels  so I get why they'd do that
Dunno if there are any leagues around now tbh jim, i finished 10 years ago and there was only a few then, i zingari and the old boys, used to be at least a dozen in the 80s and 90s. 30 quid for a nite in pub having a sesh watching game on tv or 30 quid for match ticket, they dont get much of an option like
