No surprise really, massively overrated

Be hilarious if Alonso goes there
I was holding out hope that Carlo decides to call it a day, and Alonso goes to Madrid.

Re: James Garner

We paid £9m for him, not sure what some of us thought we would be getting for £9m in todays market but if we can turn a £15m profit on him then we’re cooking with gas again ! https://www.skysports.com/transfer/news/12691/12686973/james-garner-everton-sign-midfielder-from-man-utd-in-15m-deal Maybe I...

He had two shots. He should know better. One * taken off for each shot.

Re: Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Yeah he probably should have scored a small number of them, but he hasn't and the team aren't doing anything give him good opportunities to find form and confidence by netting a few simple goals. Fuck me, it's usually me being the black and white one on here not the more grey area guy 🤣 An on form ...

Re: Dominic Calvert-Lewin

He should have scored with one of the headers last night if not both. The one in the 1st half which i think was the easiest missed by a mile. He should have also scored at fulham with the header from the corner. He is getting chances, admitted not a lot but he has had a few and he's missed them all...

Re: James Garner

To be fair it's hard to judge a midfielder in this side. For some reason Tark is our main ball player. Everyone else is crowding around. If you swapped Ross Barkley for James Garner at the start of the season I'm not confident he wouldn't be having an identical season. That changes massively when O...

I was hoping this morning. Got SSN on waiting for an announcement, and I can't take much more of Steve Howey talking about Man City who I don't remember him playing for.

He’s the reason we aren’t already down.

He’s doing an incredible job.
We're not going to get anyone better who can utilise the tools available, its just frustrating that he's picking a rubber mallet instead of a set of adjustable pliers.

Re: Dominic Calvert-Lewin

He won 17 aerial duels today, just no one close enough often enough. The knockdown for Garner's piss poor shot that won the corner we scored from was great.

xG from the two headers today combined was .22, so far from 'He has to score them'. He needs a goal just to get everyone off his back.

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

8pts for the first, with 4 for the second and Forest getting the same 8 we got for the first keeps us alive.

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

Lads, this isn't a legal or accounting contract where there might be loopholes or contradictory legislation. We've not brought a KC on to pore over caselaw. The rules at the start of each season were the rules we agreed to and then broke. Our entire game plan here is to have got someone in who can ...

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

If not to prevent clubs going bust - why do you think these rules exist? It's demonstrably not to level the playing field, rather to ensure clubs 'operate within their means'. (and whilst your general point stands for other clubs - overspending has brought us closer to relegation than being prudent...

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

The 3 year rules are to prevent going into administration. So it seems a bit odd that the punishment for risking something is worse than the punishment for doing something? If it was truly to prevent administration then they'd be much stricter. You operate at a profit other than funds you can show ...

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

Why is it that the general thought is that knowingly breaking the spending rules over a 3 year period(twice) is thought of as not as bad as going into administration?
