    So could Dave take Vincent Tan to the cleaners ?

    Quite possibly just as any person of the Jewish faith could take Whelan to court for saying “Jews love money”.[/quote]

    A Jewish person suing someone for saying they love money :silly:

    A lot of sense being spoken on this thread!!! :ohmy:

    This mob mentality towards people in football does not sit right with me.

    Yes they have a responsibilty as role models to the youth that look up to them but that doesnt mean once they have served their time, like in the case of Ched Evans, they should then be banned from going back to a job and contributing to society by paying tax.

    What is the point in sending someone to jail if not to rehabilitate them ? We may as well hang them once found guilty.

    Hindsight latic strikes again….

    Forward thinking for a second, who do you expect to replace him?

    I’ve seen Moyes and Pulis mentioned… Why not stick a cheeky bid in for Jürgen Klopp? Have about as much chance of getting him as the other two.

    Constantly changing managers mid-season is a recipe for disaster!

    Is this just a place for you to come and argue? Support your club and give it a rest.

    Surely I’m not the only one bored to death with this drivel. Most probably have the good sense not to respond to it. Cockneylatic is forever printed in my regular browsing routine but there is very little worth reading any more. A lot of the decent posters have been pushed away by the likes of you who seems to take every comment personally.

    This thread in itself speaks volumes in how long a bitter feeling can drag on for!

    I though I would resurrect this thread, perhaps we can change its title to

    Bottom Four Ros

    Perhaps you could write something interesting for a change instead of resurrecting old threads and even older arguments.

    The petty squabbles and incessant moaning of this board has been putting off new and old posters from contributing for a long time and that’s not entirely aimed at you loudmouth.

    Went to watch Salford FC on Saturday. Probably only 300 people there but speaking to a couple of people it reminded me what it used to be like to support Wigan Athletic before the majority of fans were spoiled by our success.

    Not having a pop at Bainsey just saying it as I see it. Just like Steven Gerrard he will forsake any chance of a premiership winners medal in order to play for his childhood dream team. Let’s see what fortune and fame bestow Bainsey and Luke Shaw, who can’t lace Bainseys boots at the moment IMHO.

    Nicely snuck in the edit about the premiership winners medal…

    The thought of posting a pic of Gerrard holding up the Champions league cup did cross my mind.[/quote]

    Don’t know what u on about mate.[/quote]

    Well either way you decide to write it, I dont agree. Would you rather have a champions league medal with Wigan or a few premier league medals with Bolton?

    7 million for Bosselli and 3 million for Scotland, compared to these two 28 million for Lukaku looks a steal.

    Hindsight is a privilidge that Managers dont have unfortunately.

    If you told me that you didnt think Boselli and Scotland looked like good signings for Wigan Athletic at the time of purchase, I would have to call you a liar.

    It was reported as £6 million for Boselli and £2 million for Scotland. Why not add an extra million to each for effect though eh?[/quote]

    Nobody knew anything about Boselli other than his supposed pedigree, but it emerged that John Benson had told Martinez that in his view, after watching him on a number of occasions, that he did not have the attributes to make it in the premier league, that is not hindsight on Martinez’s part it was rank bad management.

    As for Scotland he was a journeyman who had had a couple of decent seasons in division two or Scotland and been poor/ordinary everywhere else he had played, nobody thought he “looked like a good signing” and as it proved he wasn’t even as good as that.

    But “why not” let your hero worship of Martinez shine through “for the effect though eh?”.[/quote]

    No hero of worship for Martinez loudmouth. I’ve moved on with my life and so should you. I cant believe people are still talking about the man. Its been over a year!!

    And as for your opinions like I said Hindsight is a wonderful thing. A player with a “supposed pedigree” and another who has scored 20 odd goals for your new manager the season before wasn’t questioned by anyone, including you.

    I’m sure someone on this board had previously posted that they had no chance of keeping hold of Barry and Lukaku…

    I think its a real coup to keep hold of both and fend off the interest in Baines for that matter but if the £28M fee being reported is correct then I think Martinez and Kenwright want to get their heads checked.

    Money aside though they look pretty strong as a squad going forward so all the Martinez cry babys on here can look forward to another season of egg on their chin.

    Pretty strong squad egh? They are almost identical to the one that failed to get champs league football last season that BK was promised. They have not moved forward to the squad that failed to jump past their biggest rivals who are playing champs league football this year.

    As for Bainsey what a foolish man. By staying at Everton he has spurned the chance of doubling his wages, playing for one of the biggest clubs in Europe, getting 3 or 4 premiership winning medals and a few major cup winners medals. Anyway no worries Leighton you get to play nice tippy tippy football and win the possession stakes in most matches.[/quote]

    Yes almost identical to the one that finished with Everton’s highest ever points tally in the Premier League. Whatever you think about Martinez and completely putting him aside for a second, Everton do have a very good squad of players IMO.

    I think they will do well this year. Tottenham and Southampton will nose dive and sack their managers before Christmas so I think Everton have the best chance of any to break that big 5. That being said if they finish 6th or 7th after finishing 5th the season before then Martinez will be happy, Kenwright will be happy and 99% of Everton fans will be happy.

    Having a pop at Bainesy too? The dark side is clearly consuming you ;)

    I thought he would struggle under Rosler when you consider the style of football and application he says he wants from his players but Rosler obviously see’s something he likes as he gets plenty of playing time.

    You can see a difference in terms of him trying to close down as well.

    If he is any good at that is open to debate but I think overall if he went in the summer it would be a massive loss for us.
