Title: The FA Cup - Leicester City - (H) 07/01/17
Post by: Jimmywhack on January 05, 2017, 07:09:36 PM
So its the FA Cup this weekend
Hopefully we will go with a strong team and take this seriously, a good cup run could well breed more confidence

Joel
Coleman Williams Mori Baines
Barry
Lennon Barkley Davies Mirallas
Lukaku

Id have been tempted to play Deulofeu but looks like he is gone

When is Stek back? He gets injured a lot for a goalkeeper. Still feel more secure with him than Joel in goal.

I doubt Leicester will put a strong team out, the champions league and survival is more of a priority to them.

I'd say give Lukaku a rest but they is nobody else to play up top is there, he won't bring Niasse in so i'd go

Joel
Coleman
Holgate
Funes-Mori
Baines

Valencia
Barry
Davies
Mirallas

Barkley
Lukaku


Or maybe start Valencia up front, I don't fucking know

Could always give Gerry anthother chance up front , bring Lukaku on at half time if nothing happening.

Interesting to see what the crowd is.

It's popular to demand that managers take this seriously but crowds are always lower than for PL games (even taking into account that tickets are on top of season tickets).

I'd like to see a cup run but it's more important to me to see the team and club develop so I won't be distraught if we exit. Disappointed yes but not distraught.

Tickets are fairly cheap as they normally are for cup matches so hopefully should be 30,000 plus

I don't like going out of any of the cups early, especially the FA cup. The only thing that would appease me is a run in the champions league. As we are atm we've got to go for this. Maybe new players will shoot us up the league, but this is a must to have a proper go at.

We should be finishing 7th this year which may be good enough to get into Europe but we wont be finishing any higher.

Extra games in the cup shouldnt affect us finishing 7th so we have to be going to win this with everything we have.

Would be completely gutting and season ending/plunging into irrelevance if we lost this game. Even more so because its at home.

Going for a 1-0 win. COYB!

It's obviously be a very disappointing result but it's not season ending in itself.

We have to finish as high up the table as possible.

7th could well still get a EL placing and it'll look much better to prospective players than finishing 10th and getting knocked out in the 4th round at City, for example.

Obviously finishing 7th and winning the cup is the best case scenario and we should be going for that outcome.

But equally we can't afford give up on the season if we get knocked out of the cup (at any point).

Interesting shout. I also think it's 3 at the back, but it almost plays like a 4-4-2 because Coleman pushes on a lot, and Baines sits deeper.

Unfortunately it's a dying art.

Barkley and Coleman on the flanks sounds revolting

Barkley has actually been showing some promise tucking in from wide positions. He's an absolute motherfucker to defend in the half-spaces and it creates a bit more confusion for defenses to have that player moving outside in (does the fullback follow him? does a midfielder pick him up?) than inside out (where a midfielder can easily track him). I think it can be defensively viable too since the sideline is there to help him out (we already know Ross isn't the best at defending in the centre of the pitch). It's an experiment worth seeing through and I hope Koeman sees it that way. The 4-2-2-2 is a workable tactic if you have the right midfield two. Leicester played a version of this last year and Leipzig have using a similar tactic to great effect this season.

On the other hand, w/r/t Coleman-as-winger... I agree with the "revolting" assessment. (Might work for one game, though.)

Quite a few nearly's but no actual chances.

Generally ok though.

It's ok on the right but we're playing two right backs and that's showing on occasion when we've not quite got that nous that you get from a proper winger / forward.

Koeman's cup record concerned me before he came here and it's safe to say this season has done nothing to dispel those worries.
He went full strength today

Waiting for you to blame Barry and Naismith for this one chap! Looking forward to it

Kone is an attacking option,we are losing, why are you angry at that?

Why does beating them at their place mean we should just breeze through them at ours? Yes we should be winning, but is it a massive shock we've lost?

Gutted about this btw, could have had a proper crack at this as we are not finishing higher than where we are. Perfect season to focus on this but doesn't sound like the players have been motivated

Mori and Robles aren't good enough.

It's  not the massive mistakes it's just the sheer number of small needless errors that add up.

Robles passing the ball out 20 yards from goal instead of wellying it up the pitch lead to the first corner which he was rooted to the line for when it was 3 yards out which ultimately lead to the the equaliser as an example.

Deulofeu is in that category too.

Yes he set up the goal but everything else was shocking.

Mori is too weak for the PL at CB. Small players like Musa bully him out of the way and he doesn't have the pace to make up for this.

Start of the season most of the threads on aims for the manager this year was for mid table. Instead of just criticizing me ad-hominem - why do you or nobody else actually answer the question?

Our fans are satisfied with mid table/7th place and will let a manager off the hook for it just because he is on 5m a year and the owner off because he's going to impoverish the Walton area and fuck off to prime land in the City Centre.

It's unlikely we'd win the Cup so there's no reason to write 7th off as some sort of off putting factor for new players.

It's obviously be better to win the cup but, evidently, only one team actually manages it.

Therefore finishing as high up as possible is vitally important.

Writing off the season is the worst thing that we can do.

Piss poor performance and it's disgraceful that we lose after going one ahead at home. Not enough quality on the books and I'm sad to say we have not got enough characters at our Football Club at the mo. Yeah we got beat by the 'Champions' who have won one game on the road this Season but we let another opportunity go again.

Waiting for you to blame Barry and Naismith for this one chap! Looking forward to it

Kone is an attacking option,we are losing, why are you angry at that?

Why does beating them at their place mean we should just breeze through them at ours? Yes we should be winning, but is it a massive shock we've lost?

Gutted about this btw, could have had a proper crack at this as we are not finishing higher than where we are. Perfect season to focus on this but doesn't sound like the players have been motivated

Repeated points are usually because dodging question artists like @Brownie20 (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=169) never answer why they love finishing mid table and forget that thats what virtually everybody was aiming for Koeman at the start of the season.

Nobody seems to acknowledge bar me that why will Lukaku stay at a club finishing in mid table or at best to play in the Europa League? How do we recruit players on those aims?

Kone does not even warrant a place on the bench and has not played a game in ages. Leicester are this season towards the bottom of the league, at home we should beat them, simple as.

Start of the season most of the threads on aims for the manager this year was for mid table. Instead of just criticizing me ad-hominem - why do you or nobody else actually answer the question?

Our fans are satisfied with mid table/7th place and will let a manager off the hook for it just because he is on 5m a year and the owner off because he's going to impoverish the Walton area and fuck off to prime land in the City Centre.
I fail to see how you think with the squad we have how 7th, in a new managers first season, is bad?

Where did you expect us to finish after two seasons of utter trash?

I'll admit a good cup run would have been nice but it's not like he rotated the squad and fucked it up

There's loads on here annoyed about the result but ffs we are at the min what we are

We have just lost at home to the champions and a champions league last 16 team

Just wow. People aren't happy with 7th place but some realise that it can take time and believe 7th at this stage isnt  catastrophic. And fuck off with the impoverishment like Walton isn't a fucking shithole right now and won't benefit from Goodison being used for something except a place to destroy dreams.

Can't blame Koeman, he put out a strong side and we got beat. Just reaffirms what we all know, that we need more quality in a number of areas. Leicester have comfortably outspent us in the past 18 months, by some distance, and it showed today. They actually have a bench and we don't.

That's about all there is to it.

The fact that Kone and Robles were playing, and that Coleman was right wing should tell us all something.

If we can get 7th with this group I'd be over the moon.

What question have I dodged you condescending little prick? Your rhetorical one? Where the fuck have I said, ever I'm happy with finishing mid-table. Find me a fucking quote? You'll be looking a long fucking time. I'm a winner kid, always was in my playing days and only want the best for my teams. However, I'm also a realist and have played in sides that are in transition, I've even been signed in the past to help teams in transition, so I know what I'm seeing with Everton. Am I happy with mid table and no trophy? No, I never am. Who will sign for us? I don't know, I'm not a time traveller, but you'd be shocked that sometimes positions and competitions mean little to players if they can see a club that has ambition and potential.

Just take a step back from it, stop being condescending and acting like the only fan because you're not happy with just being 7th. NOBODY IS! But it's takes some fucking time mate, how are you not getting it?

We are building, Spurs were 7th or whatever 2 years back, Liverpool were 8th last season. Maybe Liverpool is a poor example but the Spurs one isn't, we need to buy young players with points to prove or good potential.

People will not confront and refused to do so for 2 years to the point they made a villain out of me, that Gareth Barry slows our play down, cannot press in the way we need the team to be doing, and leaves space behind him because he is too slow.

People cannot accept Ashley Williams has mostly been poor and a flop this season. But thats 'unfair' on a 'great pro' so I get shit for that as well.

People cannot accept Ross Barkley is a decent player like I've said for years like every other Football Pro in the game, yet they laud Besic.

People deny saying in the summer we need winners in management and in the team - then when we get knocked out of both cups, they ACCEPT IT and then give somebody who is gutted and fed up of it loads of stick. Sound.

We are happy with the prospect of finishing seventh **this season** because we finished 11th during the last two seasons, this is Koeman's first season, the six teams above us are more talented, and the six teams above us have had more money to spend for a longer period of time.

I would love nothing more than for Everton to be competing at the very top end of the table and become one of the top clubs in the country again.

But after the two very poor seasons we've had with a manager who pretty much let standards slip, we were all pretty much made aware that this season would be a transition especially with a manager who thinks a lot differently to the previous one. Unfortunately there will be some very painful moments like today but we have to hope that things will improve considerably under this new regime and the club from the very top all the way to the bottom are working on that.

To be honest, if you had told me after we lost 3-0 to Sunderland last season that we would start the new year in 7th place after 18 games despite being knocked out of both cups, I would have absolutely taken it.

Things are progressing slowly - lets hope we can finish the season strongly and next season we should be in a better position to challenge for the cups

Where do you feel this Everton side should be in the league?

If Ranier can sort a Leicester side out in 1 season and get them evne just into the CL let alone winning the league, so can RK. That should be our aim.

We need improvement in midfield, and we've discussed @Jimmy (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=514) before I and others would love to see a Mark Van Bommell/Gattuso type player in that midfield which sure, would be an upgrade on Barry. Is Schenderlin is that player, cool, but at the moment, I think he is overpriced and not that player.

But whatever, I'll carry on asking valid questions and making my point in amongst the stupid shouts of 'your being a child'.

This isn't about me, whatsoever. Its about Everton FC being the best team and msot ambitious it can be,

Today was completely shit. Finishing 7th is completely shit. When Liverpool finished 7th they sacked their manager. We finish 7th and shrug our shoulders.

I'd keep Koeman but like Si, I'm not sure sometimes about him. Despite his CV.

I would love nothing more than for Everton to be competing at the very top end of the table and become one of the top clubs in the country again.

But after the two very poor seasons we've had with a manager who pretty much let standards slip, we were all pretty much made aware that this season would be a transition especially with a manager who thinks a lot differently to the previous one. Unfortunately there will be some very painful moments like today but we have to hope that things will improve considerably under this new regime and the club from the very top all the way to the bottom are working on that.

To be honest, if you had told me after we lost 3-0 to Sunderland last season that we would start the new year in 7th place after 18 games despite being knocked out of both cups, I would have absolutely taken it.

Things are progressing slowly - lets hope we can finish the season strongly and next season we should be in a better position to challenge for the cups

If Ranier can sort a Leicester side out in 1 season and get them evne just into the CL let alone winning the league, so can RK. That should be our aim.

We need improvement in midfield, and we've discussed @Jimmy (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=514) before I and others would love to see a Mark Van Bommell/Gattuso type player in that midfield which sure, would be an upgrade on Barry. Is Schenderlin is that player, cool, but at the moment, I think he is overpriced and not that player.

But whatever, I'll carry on asking valid questions and making my point in amongst the stupid shouts of 'your being a child'.

This isn't about me, whatsoever. Its about Everton FC being the best team and msot ambitious it can be,

Today was completely shit. Finishing 7th is completely shit. When Liverpool finished 7th they sacked their manager. We finish 7th and shrug our shoulders.

I'd keep Koeman but like Si, I'm not sure sometimes about him. Despite his CV.

Leicester was a total fluke, it will never, imo, happen again. If anything it's made it harder for anyone to do that again

You didn't see my post yesterday about schneirdelein winning the most tackles in the pl since 2012 then? I've not seen that much of him but when I did he looked strong, mobile and with a pass in him.

I'm not, nor woukd call you a child, I love your passion for Everton, I'm questioning you cos I think you want too much too soon

You didn't answer me on who you want here?

I think Everton are being ambitious as we can be at this point in time, step by step we will, hopefully, get there pal

We're all disappointed that we didn't win. We all knew this would be a transition season. We all know we have many players who likely won't be around much longer. We're all aware that we are getting the foundations laid for a fantastic future. Let's get some good players in this month, and again in summer.

If we're still doing the same this time next year, then we have cause for concern.

I dont have to help myself. At 28, I have my own voice and if I'm going to be opinionated about doing it, as long as its harmless, then thats sound.

The main point (back on topic, you know, why were actually here, plus the Mods like people getting stuff back on topic,but whatever) is we are out the FA Cup. At home, in the 3rd round. Sure its not like being beaten away to Brentford/Northampton (When Brentford where shit) or at home to Reading, but its still poor.

The League of this year is NOT the League of last year.  The once-in-a-generation opportunity to slingshot yourself to the top through hard work, spit, and polish is no longer available.  Kudos to Rainieri and his crew for accomplishing it.  Never again let it said it is IMPOSSIBLE, but it also doesn't mean that is the new FLOOR of what a good manager should be able to accomplish.  That's loony bin kind of thought.

We are having a NORMAL rebuild/transition season.  And as I said before this pitch-shitting, we do not have a roster that's really built for a deep cup run anyway.  So, it sucks...but it is what it is, and not really any more than that.

Now...stop dicking around over 1-2m and get our transfer targets in stat.  We can't be pissing away points with 7th being all that's left in the season, even as a long shot.

I also think we have an owner who is not going to put up with not winning anything and if Koeman doesn't work out and there's plenty of reason right now to be optimistic for the future if that's not immediate then I think we need to be realistic about that

I have university exams to do and its also my birthday tomorrow, other people have a whole bigger life than this football club, but they still come on here and blow off steam because they CARE. It dictates their week.

If we all understand that, and have mutual respect, then things will be fine.

What you get with me is you know exactly where you are with me - the players i like, the players i dislike, how I want Everton to play the game, whether I want to move to Bramley Dock or not. That isn't completely a bad thing even when done in an opinionated manner.

I also think we have an owner who is not going to put up with not winning anything and if Koeman doesn't work out and there's plenty of reason right now to be optimistic for the future if that's not immediate then I think we need to be realistic about that

Thanks mate, actually that basically sums everything up. Complete agreement. Nothing else to say on the matter.

Now - why did we lose today? Pace/Tactics/Poor performances (and if so who?) etc?

I dont have to help myself. At 28, I have my own voice and if I'm going to be opinionated about doing it, as long as its harmless, then thats sound.

The main point (back on topic, you know, why were actually here, plus the Mods like people getting stuff back on topic,but whatever) is we are out the FA Cup. At home, in the 3rd round. Sure its not like being beaten away to Brentford/Northampton (When Brentford where shit) or at home to Reading, but its still poor.

Where do we go from here? THat is my main question. A reasonable one at that.

Well you certainly seem to rub people up the wrong way with how you get your thoughts and opinions over. It's little comments like what you've put in () above that just, in my opinion, looks like you are condescending. You go on about people not respecting your opinions but will then attack other people's thoughts and opinions about subjects (Barry, Naismith).

I don't comment on here much but I have had decent chats with you about celtic because I have a level of interest in them, but it is easy to see why you are a divisive character on here.

For what it's worth, I agree it is poor. But it isn't all that bad, yeah sure my hope for this season was Europe and a cup run, and we're out in the 3rd round.We've lost toa premier league team, the champions no less so let's not over react to that. Anyone can beat anyone in this league, especially outside of that top 6. We are in a massive transition.

Where do we go from here? Well, make sure we compete well in the league, solidify that top 7 finish, show good performances and get some results against those above us in the league and buy well before the window ends.

If we can do that then we look a great prospect for players potentially coming to us in the summer and next season we can aim to mix it up with the obvious top 6 at the moment

Performances largely responsible, the lineup was good enough given what was available, the system seemed to work initially. I wouldn't have took Barkley off. Valencia was a liability despite seeing a lot of the ball but plays because we have no one else who seems to fit this system. Coleman should always play as a right back and never a wing back or wide midfielder

Just for complete clarity, I'm not in the business of ditching managers rashly or early. Birmingham City and Swansea are good examples as to why. But it will need analysing.

Did he play 442 today? If so, do we have the players for it and after today is playing that way a write off?

People said 3 at the back was a write off after Chelsea but we won at the King Power with 3 at the back so 442 going to be all at sea from now on?

Would that be acceptable? In a word, No.

The same way you find 'Taff' unacceptable. Offence is subjective. In your case, very subjective.

Hahahahahahaha you are so wrong there kid. I say stuff like that to my SEN kids all the time and they love it and their parents love it too, as they see it as treating them like they are normal. I have amaIng relationships with SEN kids and have been praised for it in three different inspections. I'm the only teacher in my school who gets through to our most severe kid on the register. I call him Frodo because he's so short and he loves it. I explained to you about the Taff thing. It was you using it in a derogatory manner, which you did. Now, if you really get upset about things like that relating to your SEN then I'll defend you in future. But I'm going to be brutally honest with you, if you still harbour ambitions to be a teacher, you are going to have to develop a skin like a rhino hide otherwise you won't last a half term.

Yeah some good points on here as well as Thomas who like myself finds it hard to 'accept' our mediocrity.
Yes 7th I would be 'happy' with after the last 2 Seasons. I am not going to do somersaults but at least it would be progress. Saying that I wouldn't be surprised if we finished between 7-10
I go to the Home games although results wise have been good,performance wise not the best.
I wanted Koeman but so far I have been disappointed how we have been set up. at times. I don't know what was going on, on the Right today Coleman/Holgate and the subs? I thought Valencia although not the best was causing problems. Maybe fitness? Subs generally? Kone?!
Unfortunately yes it will take time to change- but for me Mori is not the best and I think Williams has struggled with the chopping and changing.
Jags and Barry have been great stalwarts for us and I hope it does not go the same way as Howard. I don't think it will. There are so many average players at our Club and it will take 4 'windows' for them to be moved on. We all know the names.....We are in the 2nd 'window' so I am trying to be 'optimistic'. I'm pissed off that we have been knocked out but as I sulk into my pint after another 3rd Round defeat I am trying to be optimistic?! And I will be there again next week... but I want the Manager to step up as well!

I get that, it's the condescending 'I'm a better fan because I won't settle for 7th like all of you' tone. The constant bashing of players and basically saying people are stupid for thinking Barry is a good player. He doesn'thelp himself at all

The fan stuff I dont really care about, take the 'me' out of it.

Its about being a better football club and better team than anybody else.

I'm very black and white, its part of being Autistic, but it also means things are simpler to understand than at first glance.

Should we beat Leicester at home? Probably. We do have better players but let's be honest here Leicester are shit but so are we. The top 6 have gone. They are miles ahead of the rest in terms of quality. It's not a massive shock that we've lost to another also ran. We are a work in progress. There's plenty in our squad who aren't good enough and even more who don't have the mentality for it

It's disappointing (like any defeat) but not massively upsetting or shocking. I don't much care about the cup at the minute almost certainly 1 of the good teams will win it and unfortunately while we may be slightly better than Leicester we aren't 1 of them good teams yet.

Thomas needs to calm down. We are shit because while koeman may or may not be the right man he's definitely not a miracle worker. He needs time

I understand most of what people are saying but as fans we are so negative so quick to judge and pull them apart look at the bigger picture 6/7th in the league without a big run of wins is the best we could of hoped for at start of season cup run has gone out the window and that wasn't the plan but it's early days for Keoman and the new regime we shouldn't be so quick to judge
First few weeks of season Barry one of better players but the pace of the game is killing him now as he can't play to the tempo we need
We are in need of 6 new players but we are not going to be top 4 overnight we are not shite we just have no consistency as the players aren't good enough to do what we all want week in and week out too many players having 1 good game 3 bad ones (Lennon jags baines Barry McCarthy Geri and Mirallas)

Get behind the blues and give Koeman time to build his own team rather than taking apart what he is doing now with moyes/Martinez squad

The difference for us is that we've been regressing for 2 years and to establish ourselves as a top 7 team was the target. We are where we should finish at the end of the season. However, the over 6 above are head and shoulders above at the moment, so to replace Koeman for not breaking into the top 6 or 4 with this squad would be harsh.

If we;re still well off the pace by the end of next season or we drop down again during it, that should be when we look at replacing him. In my opinion of course.

Apart from the unfortunate abuse of others, there are some pretty sensible realistic opinions on here. Quite unlike listening to the Merseyside radio phone in coming away from the match; with maybe one exception, the callers wanted Koeman gone; wrong man, clueless to name a few of the epithets. One goon said we have 14 players to get rid of. Now we can all count six, but 14 is a little over the top. I was sorry for the largely quiet crowd; there as so little to get us going. When Kone came on I knew it was all up. Seen it all before, but what Moshiri thinks would be interesting.

I don't think those are strange instances though.

We could only finish 5th due to other results at that City game and there was barely any applause for them. No one was fuming though, but given the alternative scenario of them being champions that's not surprising.

Re Naismith he was a respected professional (well he's in that group of players who were generally slagged off but get applauded when they're no longer here, see Pembridge as a good example) and he was applauded for not celebrating rather than him actually scoring.

Very harsh he still has old managers squad judge him at end of next season and by who he buy between now and then we can't expect miracles we have about the 7th best squad in the league so we are doing average you can't work miracles overnight just because Leicester did or because he's a good manager
He needs to build his squad and clear out the dead wood over the next 18 months then let's see if we are still 7th and going out of the cups early

Think you'll find that several of the posters considered more abrasive, tend to view the forum as a place to vent frustrations and only tend to do so following losses. For people who have more of an interest, the simplistic criticism of "it's not good enough, it's unacceptable" is not useful, constructive or productive.

Losing to Leicester in our first FA Cup match isn't going to define our season. Given our recent form it may have saved us from more significant embarrassment at a later stage.

I'd rather we won the cup, but I'm more bothered about getting knocked out in the latter stages.

It's awful to be out of the cups but we still have lots to play for in terms of actually getting 7th and seeing progress on and off the pitch.

It's shit being out of the cup but it's such a defeatist attitude to say the season is over already. Sure, we aren't going to win anything but there is still plenty to play for.

I think Brownie has said it before but I wouldn't want some of you beside me going into the 90th minute down 1-0, fucking heads down as soon as things don't go your way.

I think you will find it's mostly people pissed off with the performances we have endured this season. Prove me wrong but I've seen every game so far and as of yet have not seen a decent performance over the 90 mins. You can't come in as a manager and make the excuse that it's a long term project week after week. He has a responsibility to find a winning formula with the squad that he has. Imagine if Moyes had come in all those years ago when we were in the brink of relegation and said basically the squad is shit and we need to spend. He got the best out of what he had and made us hard to beat. Koeman is defensive minded and he's we have improved slightly but it would of been pretty fuckin hard not too. We still leak goals and sadly we don't seem to be able to hold a lead. So questions do have to be asked of Koeman.

Should we beat Leicester at home? Probably. We do have better players but let's be honest here Leicester are shit but so are we. The top 6 have gone. They are miles ahead of the rest in terms of quality. It's not a massive shock that we've lost to another also ran. We are a work in progress. There's plenty in our squad who aren't good enough and even more who don't have the mentality for it

It's disappointing (like any defeat) but not massively upsetting or shocking. I don't much care about the cup at the minute almost certainly 1 of the good teams will win it and unfortunately while we may be slightly better than Leicester we aren't 1 of them good teams yet.

Thomas needs to calm down. We are shit because while koeman may or may not be the right man he's definitely not a miracle worker. He needs time

2007 we lost 1-4 to Blackburn in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

Went on to finish 6th in the league.

Fuck it I'm sick of fellow fans being hood winked by Koeman. Bore off with he needs more time to mould the squad. State the fuckin obvious. Whilst this is correct he also as a priority needs to orchestrate the players he has into a squad that believes in itself and plays for each other. To me there is no passion and yes the players shouldn't need it but ours obviously do and that comes from the top down. The shittest of teams in regards to technical ability can still play for each other and work hard and with passion. If he brought 8 new players in right now there is no guarantee that they would all click and play passionate winning football. He's got to prove he can atleast progress with what we have and for me he hasn't and neither has Walsh. For me Williams was not the answer and I said this before we signed him

Maybe there wouldn't be constant overreacting if the same point wasn't made constantly. Maybe, if he made some different, constructively critical points, they would be treated with a bit more kudos. Maybe the Celtic thing is a bit boring

LOL

In 2 years you never answered what a hole in the side Barry made for us. I was banging on about this since Hull NYE 2014 about how slow he was. You never answered the solution then. I said we need a MVB or Gattusso type player. Now RK is looking for that player. Then I got told I was an idiot or deluded. Now because its 'cool' or in your case 'ok' to occasionally criticize barry you have your say here or there.

Carry on with your smug arrogance.

As @irishtoffee (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=579) has said, if you carefully look at my posts, I very very rarely discuss anything other than Everton. I post regularly on Celtic fans forums and they have been very welcoming and quite positive on my heart being in love with both, yet on here people seem all against it. Get over it. Everyone is different. Respect it.

Ashley Williams has been a massive flop. To be fair he's had the odd decent game recently but his wages and fee and age take the shine off it. As for the manager, he needs scrutinising. Valencia did this. When it got real bad, they sacked him. They had standards.

I don't think those are strange instances though.

We could only finish 5th due to other results at that City game and there was barely any applause for them. No one was fuming though, but given the alternative scenario of them being champions that's not surprising.

Re Naismith he was a respected professional (well he's in that group of players who were generally slagged off but get applauded when they're no longer here, see Pembridge as a good example) and he was applauded for not celebrating rather than him actually scoring.

Are you calling Mark Pembridge  legend? Decent player but dear me.......

Valencia?  Lunatic club being run by the inmates got him sacked.  There were definitely no standards involved.

Where does he mention anything even close to the word legend?! Just says part of a type of player who get slagged off when they are here for not being a good enough player, but then shown a really good reception when they come back because people when not watching them every week appreciate that they put in a lot of effort and made a lot with the limited ability they had and gave their all for the club every time they went onto the pitch which is how it should be.

Valencia?? They were a club used to being in the top 4 who'd hired a totally unproven manager and were in long term relegation form. We are a club who have spent the last 2 seasons in the bottom half and are currently 7th. Are you crazy, on the wind up or a bit of both?

I was genuinely interested in what people had to say about Koeman calling out the board - but if it was discussed, it's lost amongst all the pages of people abusing each other. What an absolute cunt-fest this site has become. Makes me long for the days of Stavros.

I enjoyed his comments. Straight up and honest. It's blatantly obvious we need quality and he's not afraid to point that out unlike Martinez. I think koeman has very high standards and is really disappointed with this squad.

Mods need to sort what exactly,
Grown men bitching at each other for a couple of hours after a fucking shite game, its what's happened on here for years and I've said the same for years, everyone has a choice, read it or don't, it's simple, the mods do a lot on here and we have got to a point because of our hard work that this place is self policing up to a point, we're here to make sure no one oversteps now, all the rest is just piss and wind.
We say it all the time, if you think it's offensive, report it, we will then either sort it or ignore it, we don't throw our weight about, we don't splatter shit all over the place.
If you don't like something personally red x it, it's a simple process, as mods we don't get the red x option we have to read it.
We really shouldn't be telling adults how to behave unless they're racist /homophobic /cunts

Everyone is different. Respect it.

I think you'll find in the past I have answered you about the issues you have stated about fans having an obsession with 'yard dogs' etc etc. You've never asked me a direct question until yesterday about Gareth Barry. So my answer is, he has been a good buy overall, but his age has caught up with him and now he is only able to produce what is required in certain types of games (tactics, opposition etc). This is why we are looking to replace with Morgan Schnederlin.

As for my smug arrogance, ok, you're entitled to your opinion. I'm actually not smug and arrogant in the slightest, just thought I'd have some fun with you, but maybe I shouldn't have with your condition - although as I've said, this style works really well with the majority of SEN kids I teach. In future I'll just ignore your comments about shit players, fans being blinded by their love of a hardworking player and only comment when I think your posts are worthwhile - which TBF you do produce.

Bury the hatchet kid?

Anyway, back to the game. Was a fucking terrible performance.

Think it should be pretty clear to all that we need to make Williams captain, give Barry more playing time, and sign a few yard dogs in the January transfer window.

That way we can hopefully get 7th place wrapped up by May and whip out the champagne.

Just listening to the BBC Merserside post-match phone-in.  Very shocked how stupid some of the points being made were.  And Ronnie Goodlass was at the same level.

On the squad - "just get rid of the dead wood, we all know who they are, they're not good enough, there's about 6 of them".  Yes great but that doesn't make your team better
On young players - "just play some of the younger lads" - yeah don't bother actually mentioning anyone, but "there must be some"
on transfers - "just get 'em in" - yeah that's how it works, you just click your fingers and it happens.  "he's had two transfer windows now", "what have they been doing for the last week?" ffs
on Leicester - "that Ndidi looked like a young Viera, only cost 11m.  Why weren't we in for him?" - played one game for them, maybe they'd done their work on the deal for some time? perhaps he fancied playing in the champions league?

Weren't you the one that reckoned Rio Ferdinand should be tending his wife's grave rather than being a pundit? I don't think you're in a position to take the moral high ground.

Anyway, this thread can archived now there hasn't been anything worth reading for about 15 pages now.

There were quite a few attacks on NSNO itself yesterday. I'm sure that almost every genuine Evertonian that calls in to this site knows its value and it's fairness, unique, compared to the rest. This is my personal favourite site on the whole of the internet. Anyone who can't see it shine above the rest have got something that I personally wouldn't want. Thanks to all the current posters mods and anyone else involved that keep it at the superior level it remains on. :)
