Why do we have a picture of that nasty man on our front page? It's put me right off my breakfast.

Have to say but the milk in my morning coffee has curdled after looking at Moyes' face but if I have to suffer then you lot have to as well!! (lol)

Tony Pulis with a ginger wig.

Taggart Two. He has all the credentials for the swamp.

Think i need a drink after that

If he was your manager you will absolutely love him, brilliant manager, hence the double against city.
Rob-EFC
Thanks for the input Rob, now back over to Vital Stoke, oh sorry I mean Vital Everton.
Bluedub
Hate to say it but I'm with Rob. Everton play the right game for this division and are rarely poor. Chelsea under Mourinho were simply Everton with money, and still are to a degree. Hughes was the right manager for us to build a disciplined squad in that image which would overpower all before us. Mancini might work it out in the end but its going to take him longer. He is learning as he goes how this division works. Money would have made up for Hughes shortfalls. I dont think it will make up for Mancini's. If he starts buying up Italians in the summer we are not going to make it.
DarthGonzo
Darthgonzo - personally I'd rather see us play good football. Pumping long balls to a lone striker and feeding off the second ball in my view is horrible to watch.
Bluedub
Moyes should have nutted the greasy little italian skank.
IanWrightsUglyWife
BlueDub, I know what you mean and I feel the same way but if you want to get into the top four your squad have to play like three of them play...it doesnt have to be ugly all the time. I'd want us to be able to play appropriate to the opposition in front of us. But against Stoke and Everton to some degree you have to take it to them at their own game. Remember how he threw away the Goodison game by bringing Robinho on for Rocky? No other premiership manager would haave made that change. The starting lineup last night looked like it would struggle, I think we should have played 442, and not played Ireland because Tev works in the same space, and harder. The discipline of Everton is the foundation of all premiership title winners. The flair and squad depth comes on top, and Everton cant afford it. Arsenal fell away over the past five years because they lost it/sold it. Man U and Chelsea retain it, and thats why they are always strong. I think Hughes certainly understood that, as does Moyes, he just cant go out and buy it. We've taken two steps back to get a big name manager who is learning on the job. If we make the top 4 I dont think it will be down to him. It will be the personnel Hughes bought pulling it out the bag. For all he 'sorted out the defence' he had no choice cos Toure was away and we had 4 winnable games. We all knew Kompany was mustard. Now Toure is back and we are flapping. What Ned has to do to get a game I just dont know. Its like Mancini has never watched our previous performances. Ive said it before - it was the height of arrogance to immediately change the formation and style. It only needed tweaking and more discipline. Hughes had it right (apart from Toure). We looked amazing for the first half of the season, now if Johnson tires we have nothing. That cant be just down to the players. Its the way they are being coached and prepared for matches. bit of a rant but I still feel we've been robbed, by Cook and Marwood's short termism and ego. Mancini is not the villain for me, I hope I'm wrong about him...
DarthGonzo
DarthGonzo - some very good points, very well made. I agree with you about Hughes, I thought letting him bring in so many players to sack him before he had it honed was ridiculous to say the least. I do have faith though, given time and his own personnel, Mancini has what it takes to bring us to the next level.
Bluedub
I'll buy into it Bluedub! Like my old man said when Hughes got the push, "You knew it had to be like this. Our club will always do this to us. Get used to Mancini, and support him, until the next one.". For me, our biggest signing this summer (if Mancini stays) will be an assistant manager...
DarthGonzo
PS. I want Steve Clarke. He's assisted title winners, he's assisted Italians...he probably *****s pasta. Get him to Manchester, quicksharp.
DarthGonzo
Wouldn't want a plate of that pasta!
fifthcolumnblue
Once again bluedub, as I said on our vital, you are just being petty and abgry at losing, anyone who has a football brain knows how well everton play, just take a look at what we did to you at goodison, it was an away game, and we did what we had to do to win, if you played like that and won you wouldnt care if you had won, so stop being petty.
Rob-EFC
fifthcolumnblue, if it guaranteed us fourth would you eat that pasta? Pass me the parmesan....i'm going in!
RobsonGreensleeves
Rob - Everton play a very effective game and yes that game at Goodison you dominated us in which was probably our most inept performance of the season(WHL was just as bad), however the game the other night we dominated you until you scored against the run of play from a set piece, then playing ten men behind the ball, even going as far as not playing a striker for the last twenty minutes, that my friend reminded me of Stoke(less the long throws).
bluedub
Everton's style of play is crude, yet effective. On Wednesday it was mostly just crude though.
fifthcolumnblue
Not a bad manager but that pic really makes him look demented.
