I have to confess I read that but found my desire for life itself receding with the incredibly byzantine complexities involved.

I'm sure now it's 'in the open' , if Everton are guilty of any accounting/reporting errors, we'll be suitably punished.

Didn't read all of the article.



Doubt that very many football club's can hold their heads proudly to declare the pride they have in their owners and the means by which they accrued their money.

Really enjoyed watching today's game. 4-0 over Man. City is simply a fantastic result, and that goal to Lookman was the icing on the cake. On for 5 mins. and scores a cracking little opportunist's goal. Well done, young fella.
City looked like they were fragmented and unfocused pretty much the whole game.

Didn't see the game, but did see the result. Spurs send their thanks.

Bah humbug.




Yep - City played like individuals. Everton played like a team.

The most important part of today's game for many Everton fans was to see little Bradley Lowery, a terminally ill Sunderland fan, as club mascot. He's really been taken to Evertonisn hearts (City fans too showed heartwarming solidarity). Bit disappointed that Sky gave it so little coverage, to be honest.

Bloody fantastic game, though!

Give it a rest, fatty.

Every football league club does its bit. They're just not so vocal as the self-proclaimed 'peoples club'.

Well, this tells its own story.

Giving credit where it's due.

One of my children visited Liverpool last week, visiting family friends, one of whom was a mascot for the Everton Bournemouth game. Due to an absentee my pupil was invited to join her friend on the tour, met several players who gave signed photos to her - Lukaku & Barry amongst others. She had a large goody bag and has been buzzing all week. I'm friendly with her parents and they spoke to me most warmly about the excellence of the hospitality their daughter was freely given.

Well done Everton.

^^^^ Nice story.

Get your money on Lukaku topping 30 league goals... he's in the shop window now.

Barkley. Still shit, still that type of player. Should have gone. As should Williams.

Drive by trolling. I'm surprised Everton didn't change things at half time though, they couldn't cope with Liverpool's midfield, and you have to admit Ross was lucky to stay on the pitch. Twice, probably.

Liverpool's defence still looks dodgy, their set piece defending is awful. You could have come away with something with a bit more pressure up front.

We were fucking terrible. Absolutely no excuses and, yes, Barkley was lucky to stay on. Not that we'd have noticed so much had he not been anyway.

Again we simply didn't turn up for a derby match and someone really needs to do a drains up about our prep for these games.

We were useless going forward too. Lukaku stank the place out (again) and the rest were no better. From the very first minute, you sensed we were not at the races and were outplayed from front to back. Piss poor, even allowing for the enforced team selection. Tactically all over the place and the players themselves froze. Again.
