#1131120 Ferguson: the new godfather of English Football?

Posted by capitanus on Yesterday, 09:51 AM

The church at the corner of the Gwladys and the main stand is St. Luke's, but it's an Anglican church, not Catholic, have been going to Goodison since the early 80's.


I stand corrected. Still, the Anglicans are good Christian sorts.

Leeds have won the title more recently than Everton, in fairness.
But that was a fantastic result today for them.


That was a blip in all fairness. Blackburn have won the title even more recently than the Leeds. That goes for nothing too.

#1131096 Today's match: vs. Dunfermline, away 7/12/19

Posted by capitanus on 07 December 2019 - 10:08 PM

Well I don't think you seen the team for awhile.
When your down your down. The new penalty rule hurt bad today.
A clearing header strikes Millar's arm going out the box to safety with Millat having little chance to get out the way is harsh. As for the need to retake a shot stopped about six inches out near the post means goalies might as well sand still in the middle of the goal.
On a positive felt we when for the equaliser but caught out on the break. As for goal two panic created by player playing across the box , good save followed by defender attempting to boot it clear as goalkeeper tries to regather it classic comedy.


Not been for about six weeks now. I'm not missing it, this season has been possibly the most grim I can remember since 2001/2.

That doesn't take away from the fact that Everton are a shit club.


They've got a Catholic Church in one corner of their ground. I thought that would have been your kinda thing, Bishop.

Duncan Ferguson takes charge of his beloved Everton FC for the first time today. A fine servant of the club, and arguably the best Scottish player of his generation who was badly let down by the football authorities in his home country at a tender young age.

English Football is now ready for a new hard-as-nails Scotsman to boss it from head-to-toe once again, and they don't come any harder than him. This is the guy who will be able to get the best out of underperforming expensive players and know who needs the arm-around-the-shoulder approach and who will need the kick-in-the-balls approach; a natural progression from the likes of Jim McLean and Walter Smith. Everton had a few Carlos-kick-a-balls and a Dutch Cap as manager since Sir David Moyes moved on to Man United, and the heart has been somewhat displaced from them since then, but Dunc is the guy to restore the heart and soul of the club and guide the club back to the top where they rightfully belong.

#1130918 Morton v Brora Rangers

Posted by capitanus on 03 December 2019 - 10:34 PM

Aye, all things considered it was a thoroughly enjoyable night.

We were at it from the off, the result was never in doubt, it was a new ground to visit for a lot of the (very big, in relative terms) travelling support and the club did some good PR work to get folk a bit more onside with them.

Was well worth the day off work :).


How big was the Travelling support?

#1130796 What’s happened to our Forum?

Posted by capitanus on 28 November 2019 - 05:30 PM

It gives a sense of meaning and worth to people who otherwise love empty lives. Other examples of such behaviour include, but are not exclusive to; changing the nappies of alcoholic tramps, doing the Keystore run for their fags and Thunderbird, starting alternative “friendly” forums because you got emptied from other forums for being a complete fanny, making up loads of separate accounts to give the illusion of said forum being busy...


I have to say that I enjoy reading the groomed-arse messageboard. It is amusing to say the least.

Also, I've got a feeling the clique will be looking out their flip flops and shades soon.... :thumbup2: :thumbup2:

#1130778 Championship 19/20

Posted by capitanus on 27 November 2019 - 09:10 PM

What rates are you getting?

My portfolio is attracting about 2%.

So he gets £1.8 ish M a year or the equivalent to Sevico's monthly losses.


:lol: :lol:

I think that someone with around £50m in the bank would get a better deal than your Supersquirrel account.
