Just sitting here watching the Liverpool Southampton game.  Southampton are playing brilliantly, the crowd is really getting behind their team.  Look great in possession and all of the team are working as a unit and really putting in a shift.  The market value of their players equals 235 million euros.


Our current market value relating to transfers equals 343 million euros in regards to transfer values etc. 

We usually look disjointed like a team of individuals playing with each-other.  The current speculation surrounding the players (Michael Keane etc) is causing harm.  The players confidence is shot and their performances are suffering.  I feel with a realistic period of gelling between the players.  A real manager who can inspire togetherness and football playing tactics (Not big crooked smug Sam).  We can actually achieve something of note.  Steve Walsh should also be replaced immediately.  I was always excited about the chance of being taken over by a Billionaire and the possibilities that it could bring to Everton.

Unfortunately it has turned into a real shit show and we are becoming the clowns at the circus.

Of course Southampton go down 2-nil as I am typing this  :Horse: :Horse:

I saw this and thought OK, maybe this is an article about the effective way Southampton's owners run the club, or the quality of their scouting system which has unearthed so many quality players, or something else that perhaps I hadn't appreciated about them.

But no, it's a suggestion that we try emulate the performances on the pitch of a team that are probably getting relegated. Because they're "really putting in a shift".

Up there with the most absurd openings to a thread I've ever seen on here.

I'd rather follow the Man City model.

yeah, I'd say they are likely to bear hug Stoke and WBA on the way down.

Allardyce is going to have a field day in the next presser when he sees this.
