Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

Better question might be, what would it take to shut the club up and make it all go away? If it's less than 4 points then I think we'd take it to the courts. Do we have actual grounds to take it to a court of law though? I'd hope so but have zero idea how sporting sanctions are viewed when you're b...

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

I would be shocked if we got anything back points wise, there's absolutely nothing to gain by doing so and I don't for a second believe the panel is independent. It'll remain at 10 and we'll probably get another 6 for the next charge. Unless we can legally challenge this in a proper court of law we'...

Re: Manager Merry-Go-Round

Imagine if Roy got wind of the impeding axe and fake collapsed at the training ground to avoid it 🤣

Sorry shouldn't joke about anyone's ill health, just seems incredible timing.

Re: Everton v Crystal Palace Mon 20:00

The link that Gash sent tells a different story. It was a very long article that I read most of and skimmed some... The stats guy I listened too purely compared the previous 5 games to the first 5 under the new manager, and there was a significant improvement on average. Very complex though as per ...

Re: Everton v Crystal Palace Mon 20:00

So is new manager bounce coincidence/luck or something else ? If Hodgson is sacked today and Glasner takes training over the weekend does that improve their chances ? Yes... Probably. Listened to something a while back about new manager bounce and even these days it was something like a 75% increas...

Re: Dyche

Apparently we've conceded a fair few from set pieces but none of them headers weirdly. I thought the Wolves lad at Goodison scored with his head, but looks like the shoulder. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnwyEBk9I1U Yeah seems weird to concede goals from set pieces that aren't headers (taking di...

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

I think looking who Cahill has taken money from has merit, but it's also too simplistic for me. Money doesn't mean happiness and he clearly wants a career now he's no longer a footballer, and he's creating a CV for himself with a likely ambition or end goal we don't know that may well be beyond simp...

Is this from open play or set pieces too?

CN remember us conceding a few from set pieces but no idea if they were headers thinking back.

Re: Everton v Crystal Palace Mon 20:00

I'd like an RB that can cross a ball if in a decent position, given we need to win this... So Godfrey shouldn't be anywhere near RB for this one imo.

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

Just for the record I'm also in Spain at the moment and it's been 23 degrees here in Malaga today and glorious sunshine.

23 degrees in Feb?! Trying to remind myself why I love in the UK and can only think of 'i was born there' as the answer.

Re: Everton v Crystal Palace Mon 20:00

Yeah much as I'm not a fan, I don't mind Garner at right back at all. Can easily do a job there. He's decent at tackling and interceptions, has a good engine to get up and down. We're told that he can deliver a ball into the box (although I'm yet to see it on a regular basis), and he can step insid...

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

If you have nothing to hide then you release everything to show your justifications and put an end to speculation about your bias or incompetence.

The fact he's already said they won't be releasing things 'because they don't have to' speaks volumes for their process.

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

I doubt we'd have sold Sigurdsson either way. I can't remember whether the PL told us not to play Sigurdsson or if it was our decision. If it was the PL then I'm not sure how the IC can look at that case and deem there to be no mitigating circumstances and essentially come to the conclusion that he...

Re: Financial Fairplay Investigation - Charged again

Didn't we try and claim we had deals for Sigurdsson and Tosun lined up but they fell through for various reasons, suspended by the club being one of them obviousl? Even if we did I wonder how much we have got for Sigurdsson with big wages and not long left on his contract and how we even prove it, ...

Re: Relegation

Can't panic either way... We're experienced enough in relegation fights now to know there'll be many twists and turns before the end of the season.

Obviously a win is important, but we need to stay calm it doesn't happen.
