    They won 2-1! I'd take that as a pre-season result for Everton.

    We have unveiled our away kit, the best way I can describe it is golden snakeskin.

    Well if you are going to play like cunts you may as well look like one.

    Apparently weíre trying to scupper the Saliba deal but I donít believe it. Thereís a definite thing whereby whenever a club is about to sign someone, another club (usually a rival) makes a last minutes attempt to scupper it. Itís either the selling club trying to apply some urgency, or the buying club making it feel like more of a coup to land the player. Happens every time.

    Haha that would be hilarious.

    I don't understand why Arsenal fans aren't up in arms about the state of things. We managed to force an owner out in three years through mass boycotts and civic action, Liverpool did it without even the boycott. Why are Arsenal fans so apathetic?

    Good sources though (inc the guy that said Arsenal had agreed the deal). Always a chance that it's the former, trying to put the frighteners on a bit. According to Ornstein, lawyers were in the process of agreeing contracts. I guess we'll wait and see. Arsenal Twitter will implode if you do though.

    Well if there's no drama, there aren't any clicks for AFTV.

    Because they focused their ire on the wrong person.

    And tbf, the only reason Hicks and Gilette left LFC was because the banks pulled the plug.

    We are up in arms. You only have to watch DT go on a big rant for the 100th time. It just gets boring listening to the same old shit though.

    Thatís not doing anything though, itís just media whoring. Boycott, march, organise.

    In a 60,000 seater stadium only 5,000 or so are actual fans. They can moan and boycott all they want but the tickets are still sold and nobody gives a shit.

    The only thing that will shift Kroenke is if we start losing money so actually becoming shit isnít the worst thing.

    Boycotting never works. You do realise that the waiting list for tickets is ridiculous? and if you want to boycott you'd probably just sell your ticket through the Arsenal website to red members...

    I wish the Newcastle faithful would boycott. I get that they want to support the team on the pitch but they've spent probably nine of the last eleven years upset about this now. Just fucking do something about it or shut up.


    (For transparencies sake: last game I attended was a friendly vs Braga in which Cabaye was still playing.)

    Boycotting certainly helped us keep our plight in the public eye, which is half the battle.

    Difference is, your lot were leeching you dry to the point the club may not exist. Moaning about a billionaire not putting his own cash in so you can spend ££££ more is a bit different imo

    Are things really that bad though?

    There were stories the other day saying Arsenal are now in for Ceballos and thatís probably bollocks. I guess if we sign him, they can say spurs beat Arsenal to the signing even though they probably never in for him in the first place. Got to keep people interested and reading during the off season.

    So apparently we definitely have tried to hijack the Saliba move with a much higher fee but no loan back for a season like Arsenal. Will be interesting.

    Delph to Everton for £8m then, bit weird given our midfield roster and our supposed policy of signing players who are 21-25.

    8mil is nothing nowadays.

    I'd like a striker, please. At least ONE.

    I can't get my head around transfer fees lately.

    Surely Delph is worth 50m minimum? 8m? That's what Wan Bissaka should have cost really.

    Fucking mad. Hope neymar goes back to Barca for £500m to really fuck things up.

    £8m for Delph does seem quite cheap but no idea where youíre getting £50m from. £15m ish Iíd have thought.

    Presumably heís nearly out of contract and perhaps Everton have given City first refusal on Gueye or something.

    CBA. Tired of listening to the likes of 'brand strategist' cunt kalel and his wanky brand based LinkedIn insights on a fucking gaming forum. Tosser.

    Been a good ten years. Won't be back. Peace.

    Again, £8m is good value for sure, but ď50m minimumí is ridiculous. Heís not worth even half that.

    Good wing backs always go for a premium, especially if theyíre English. There are very few around. Sessegnon is similarly priced.
