Bournemouth play expansive football with Simon Francis and Steve Cook in defence, it's not a case of play shit football and stay up or play entertaining football and get relegated.

Before anyone goes on about Bournemouth having more money, most will agree they've spent it dismally anyway and Burnley signed Ben Gibson for 20m just to sit on their bench so there is money there.

That's because this is how Eddie Howe plays. Sean Dyche plays a different way but both of them have managed to promote two small clubs and established them in the Premier League, which is impressive. It's whatever works for you.

If Howe and Dyche tried to change and move towards how the other manages they'd probably not be as successful. 'If it ain't broke don't fix it' for the pair of them. Both deserve respect for the different jobs they have done and how they've gone about it.

....................Eddie Howe's style of play didn't seem to work so well at Burnley ,they didn't get anywhere near promotion if I recall correctly. 
We are special ,we are Everton.

A fine viewpoint.

My point is that we shouldn't excuse (in my view) shit percentage football as an excuse that it's the only way for a team to stay in this league.
If you're not angry, you're not listening.

Defensive percentage football in itself isn't so much the issue with Burnley for me. It's when it's combined with excessive time wasting and shithousery that I think it becomes fair to be critical of it.

Obviously the Chelsea game stands out but they do it reasonably often. Reminds me a bit of Stoke, although definitely not up to their levels yet.

Football would be a very boring sport if everyone played the same style of football.

It's going that way already and you're having teams likes Huddersfield trying to play open, expansive football and failing massively.

Burnley have a way of playing and it works for them. I remember them scoring a brilliant team goal against us last season that involved nearly 30 passes so it isn't always defensive football.

I personally like to see teams play 4-4-2 and hitting it long to the big men.

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Sold out again.

That means every home game for the last 3 seasons has been sold out, and with record season ticket renewals announced for next season its looks set to continue.

Hoping for another clean sheet tonight , IIRC Man City were the last away team to  score at Goodison way back on the 6th of February .

I have just gone on the season ticket waiting list - goodness knows how long i will be on it for being in tier 2.

The fact remains that going to watch football is actually becoming one of the more affordable things to do for a family, so you would expect this trend to continue as long as the ticket freeze continues.

Think that Fulham one was 4-1 I'm sure we went a goal down and had to fight back

Don't remember that Yobo one. Was that Jelavic 1-0 v Spurs on a Friday though?
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

We might all be getting mixed up Haha

Pienaar scored a free kick when we beat city at home 2-0 and Fellaini did the pirouette

I think the Fulham game was this one
