I mean, I'm sure that there's some better example of how Roy Hodgson is old that isn't so much of a ridiculous lie.

You're saying the toaster wasn't invented in 1993?

In fairness, that year is only one digit off, even if it is a fairly significant digit.

The ball from Mane to Origi was pure filth.

That touch by Big Divvy to bring the ball down, and then get his body around it so quickly to chip Pickford was truly majestic.

So much pre match criticism for the starting XI, but honestly, Origi has a great record against Everton, and both Bobby and Mo are not in good form.

Whst another counter! Mane is out of this world right now!

All been great goals by Liverpool, but Everton are a total mess. Iwobi looks like a competition winner. I'd make about 7 changes for the second half if I could, including the manager.

Marco Silva looks like a man who's had all happiness and joy sucked out of him

If Silva is still in charge by tomorrow afternoon I'll be amazed.

Who do Everton realistically get in though? I thought Silva should have went a few weeks ago but Chelsea, United, Arsenal with Leicester in the cup sandwiched in isn't the best run in for a new manager

Unsworth as a caretaker till those fixtures are passed.

Unsworth was fine last time. He might motivate them a little better than Silva can, which clearly is not at all. He's a broken man. I don't agree with this prevailing philosophy of "keep him cos there's nobody better". We won't win another game under him, he seems a reasonable person but it's beyond hopeless now.

Unsworth beat West Ham 4-0 in his previous game in charge, despite the bizarre claim from Allardyce (ugh) that he was the reason for it.

Also, back to this. Steve Wilson pulled out a way more interesting tidbit on Match of the Day tonight that illustrates Hodgson's longevity far, far better than that lame toaster joke. Hodgson had already won his first league title as a manager by the time Eddie Howe was born. That is astounding.

Neither is Silva at the moment. This goes back to that fixture difficulty grid that I think Lineker posted before the season started. Everton's fixtures for the first four months of the season were (on paper) 'easy', much easier than most teams, to the point where you would have expected them at this point in the season to be overachieving since they've only played two big teams, yet they're in the relegation zone with horrible fixtures for December, February and March. Given their abject underachievement and failure to address known weaknesses (still can't defend set-pieces whatsoever), at this point, they'd probably be better off with one of those waving golden cats you see in Chinese takeaways as manager, never mind a guy who is synonymous with Everton and has been there for decades.

It doesn't, but you can see the potential narratives that may play out during the season. For example, on paper, I would expect Everton to be firmly inside the top six around late November and the pundits will be lauding how good of a job Marco Silva has done to get them there. Then they run into December / New Years Day, where they could concievably lose seven straight games. Then they've got a few games where they could get results, but if their confidence is shot, they could lose most of them and then they have another batch of games against the top six and suddenly Marco Silva is out of a job.

Don't worry guys, Everton are giving serious thought to the right man for the job: Footballing Genus himself David Moyes.

 

If our victory leads to Marco Silva getting packed and Moyes becoming the manager at Everton again, this is just the best timeline.

But they should have sacked him earlier before coming into the fixture list they face. You could have brought someone in who may give a morale boost and get the players on side. Whilst the fixture list they would have come into wouldnt be any easier, in theory it would lessen somewhat the "dark cloud" surrounding the team and the manager. 8 defeats in the last 11 I think it is. 

They've not performed, they've spent a load of money on bang average players who haven't really improved the team 

Unsworth isn't going to right the ship in the interim either, they were just as bad last time under him. They lost 5, drew 1 and won 2. 

The positive they have is the table is so tight at the bottom and all it takes is probably 2 good results and they'll shoot up the table .

      Regarding that line about us - I imagine that we will be refused that by the Premier League and we'll end up on the road for the first four games - which is fine.
      Predictions! Some seemingly obvious, some bold and unlikely to actually happen...
      Top 4 - Man City, Spurs, Man Utd, Liverpool. In a lot of ways I see it being a re-run of last season at the top. Emery improves Arsenal but they still fall short of cracking back into the CL spots. Chelsea struggle due to being so delayed with everything this summer (Conte's prolonged goodbye, unknown futures of Hazard and Courtois). Wolves finish in the top half of the table. Cardiff, Huddersfield, and Southampton to go down. Warnock wins the sack race; dismissed by Christmas
    • By Lineker
      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released at 9am tomorrow morning, so let's make some predictions for the new season which will probably look stupid in six months or so: 
      Spurs will only scrape top-4 due to the Wembley effect. Pep's Man City will struggle again due to Ederson failing to settle. Arsenal to finish 6th. Huddersfield and Brighton will survive. Newcastle will be relegated with a different manager in place by Christmas. Watford will be relegated. Bournemouth will finish above Southampton. Bilic or Puel will be the first manager to be sacked. Talking of Newcastle...

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released tomorrow morning, so let's make some bold predictions for the new season ahead: 
      Leicester will only manage a top-ten finish. Chelsea will only make the Europe League spots at best. Top 4 of Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal. In what order I have no idea. Liverpool will just miss out towards the very end of the season. Watford to continue to struggle under a new manager, particularly if one of Deeney or Ighalo leave, and get relegated. Bournemouth build on last season and do well again. Hull to straight back down to the Championship with Middlesborough. Burnley to just scrape survival, at the expense of... let's say Crystal Palace. Koeman's Everton to finish below his old club Southampton despite spending a metric fuckton of money. Pulis (WBA) or Guidolin (Swansea) to be sacked first.

      So yeah, it was kind of getting lost in the talks of actual football, but if you'd like to join the EWB Fantasy Premier League, the code is below. Use this thread for fantasy team discussions and such.

    • By DavidMarrio
      I remember a while ago we used to predict who would finish where in the table so I thought I'd put EWB to the test and see who was the best at predicting what would happen in the Prem this season. Who will be our version of Paul the Octopus and who will be as good as predicting things as Mark Lawrenson. There will be 5 questions with a total of 100 points up for grab and come the end of the season I will add all the points up to crown our first winner.
      Question 1) Top goal scorer (5 points for correctly guessing the top scorer, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top scorer and amount of goals)
      Question 2) Most assists (5 points for correctly guessing the top assist maker, A extra 10 points is awarded for guessing top and amount of assists)
      Question 3) First team to sack their manager (10 points)
      Question 4) Predict the table (2 points for each correct position,
      Question 5) Predict the three teams which get promoted to the Prem (5 points for each team guessed correctly, If you get all three correct; a extra 5 points is awarded)
       
      Here are my answers:

      1) Diego Costa - 22 goals
      2) Coutinho- 14 Assists
      3) Watford will sack their manager first
      4) Chelsea, Man.Utd, Man.City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Swansea, Southampton, Everton, Stoke, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, West Brom, Aston Villa, Leicester, Sunderland, Bournemouth, Norwich, Watford
      5) QPR, Middlesbrough, Hull City
