Lets face it guys these are the games we must win to secure us in the Premiership.
Southhampton, Newcastle, Burnley, Norwich, Watford, and Aston villa.

We need 5 wins from the 6 above anything else we get is a bonus, i would like your comments but this is what i think. I am not saying we should roll over in the other games but to me these are vital to us staying in the premiership i am trying to be realistic.

Not a chance mate not with moyes we won't we knew before he came he wasnt the right choice but the chuckle brothers new best not . We need new owners these two money grabing clowns will ruin us just like the did with brum .

2.) 21 Feb 2020 13:40:28
I'm not bothered either way anymore. What I want to see is us playing our best 11 and the out of form orpoor performers dropped allowing youth to come through.

3.) 21 Feb 2020 17:47:09
All I want to see is 11 players giving it there all, if we get beat then so be it but there has to be fight and spirit!
3 wins will see us stay up, the players need to now stand up and be counted.
Moyes is not accountable for this mess, is he the right man I don’t know but pellegrini wasted big money and let some good players go in the process!

4.) 22 Feb 2020 00:08:04
Bonzo you have a short memory, if it wasnt for MOYES we would already be in the Championship.
Give him a chance mate
We all thought Pel would be a step up but him and his team were a disaster.

5.) 22 Feb 2020 11:25:00
Damn right give the guy a chance.

6.) 22 Feb 2020 12:14:42
I'm not sure we need 5 wins in the 6 you mention I'd say 3 and a draw. COYI.



30 Jan 2020 17:28:36
if u read all the reports we are interested in signing anyone who can kick aball
Please tell us Ed who are we interested in.


{Ed002's Note - Late in the day and not the way to do business, but the eggs are going in the Jarrod Bowen basket. If Palace or spurs pick up Eberechi Eze it might be a slip by West Ham. An offer on the table for Olivier Giroud might have been a good idea a couple of weeks ago.}

After our exit from the FA cup its time to realize who is to blame for putting us in this position. Its easy to blame Pel and his team and we were all right behind him when he came but just look at the rubbish we have as so called Pemiership players. 70% of our FA cuo side would be lucky to play in league 1 Mark Noble knows he cannot do 2 games a week but who else have we got to replace him its time for the board to stand up and realize the blame stops here. Sorry Mr Sully and CO. its time for a change knowone else is to blame but you and your team not the players How do you expext Moyes to get us out of this mess when u see the players he has to work with. Do the right thing and save our club SELL and BEGONE before we end up like Sunderland.


1.) 26 Jan 2020 12:40:15
Bideford, how can we not blame Pelle and his staff, he is clearly the sole person alongside his staff to blame for this whole sorry mess we are in! A lot of people were moaning Sullivan interferes with transfers to much, so he gives MP a free rein to buy who he wants within reason, then this is the result so far! I personally have always been sceltical about a lot of these so called Foreign Marquee signings when they have no idea of a few seasons playing in the Premiership? They see a contract offered that sets them up for life almost regardless how they perform, play like a Sunday park footballer, then get £millions to pay their. contracts up just as Pelligrini has, madness! Noble may be not be Premiership standard now but neither are any of them with the odd exception, but give me him, Snodgrass, Antonio, over, Haller, Yarmolenko, Anderson, Wilshere, plus half a dozen others anytime! He can give a few years to any of them, so of course he’s slowing down! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 27 Jan 2020 22:55:16
Chelmsford I agree. We need warriors now like Noble, Snods, Antonio, Rice. not flakey players who don’t care or are too weak.



01 Jan 2020 23:05:51
What a great start and without Antonio. A step in the right direction. and congrats to the team, COYI.




29 Dec 2019 19:30:32
Well it looks like David Moyes, he's not everyones choice but he can't be worse than Pel, who i think lost the dressing room.
He did keep us in the Premiership last time and he will enforce discipline and fitness with S/P. I do beleive we now have a chance to stay in the Premiership.

We should not be looking at Demo's or actions we need to get behind our team, regarding what we think of the board Once you get in the Championship its so hard to get back to the Prem. but easy to continue to slide. Remember we are IRIONS through and through. SUPORT THE TEAM.


1.) 30 Dec 2019 09:43:20
Agree john.

When this virus is over and football starts again, their will be a lot clubs that need to unload good players just to continue. i'm sure DM will be told to take a lot of our expensive players who are not performing off the books. If what I've read that DM believes in youth we have some rearly good promiseing players comming through. Our club has a wealth of young talent which tells me our club future is a lot brighter than a lot of other premiership clubs.


1.) 28 Mar 2020 10:22:51
Given the fair play rules mean the wages need to be a percentage of income then if prize money and TV money is withheld then players will either have to take a cut or there will be a lot of clubs in a difficult situation. Going to be interesting to see how they cope. But to be honest I worry more about the average supporter who will lose their job and struggle in some cases to meet payments on mortgages. Very few Oremiwr League players will ever know that stress.

{Ed001's Note - the fair play rules are to be either suspended or amended to deal with this situation.}



25 Feb 2020 09:01:11
We lost last night but i was impressed with our overall play we now seem to have players that want to stay in the Prem.




31 Jan 2020 22:33:39
i just herd Man united signed a player from China.
i like to know how he will trval with all flights cancelled from China. Nice one lads. Well thought out.


{Ed001's Note - he is from a Chinese team, that doesn't mean he is in China as it is out of season there and not all flights are cancelled anyway.}

1.) 31 Jan 2020 22:59:07
Flights from china to Heathrow are still running.

2.) 31 Jan 2020 23:20:52
It's done BOWEN is a HAMMER PHEW that was nail biting to say the least I can sleep better tonight with him and SOUCEK not a bad window. COYI.



11 Jan 2020 20:27:01
. m sorry to say the game we love is being destroyed by VAR what's wrong with having the linesmen and ref deciding FOUL or no faul offside or not it was all part of the game We loved the was wasnt it a goal it was all part of the game. The banter on the bus or tube on the way home win or loose its a part of the game and now what do we have long delays and discussions over an inch ifs its an off side or a wonder goal Sorry its not about Snoddys goal its about destoying our game, i for won am against VAR what do you other suporters think.


1.) 12 Jan 2020 07:58:22
I'm FOR using VAR, but not the way it is at the moment. Money is huge in the game these days and poor/ missed decisions by Refs shouldn't be the force that sends a club into financial meltdown if they got relegated. Equally, if Liverpool won the league last year by a point, then their 1 metre offside goal against us could have been the difference, that wouldn't be right IMO.
1. OFFSIDES need changing. Needs to be quick, obvious and none of this 1mm bulrubbish. We want the obvious ones given/ cancelled correctly. Haller goal was called by the lino not VAR, and he was ARGUABLY right as part of his body was off. But had he not called it VAR would have been able to rule it out quickly. I don't like the RULE here personally, I think it should be based on feet not if any goalscoring part of a player is offside.
2. HANDBALLS need changing. Currently if you are a defender you can use your hand accidentally but and attacker (Rice) cannot. Different rule for different players is NOT consistent and fair sport. Again, VAR was brought in to stop big errors, like the Hernandez handball for us not so long ago, or a defender who is clearly using his arms deliberately to make himself bigger to block a shot/ cross. The interpretation needs consistency on all incedents.
Biggest worry is that these rules for VAR were made by supposedly the best minds in the sport! Clowns.

2.) 12 Jan 2020 08:46:15
When Haller scored against Sheff Utd you’ll notice the top half of his body was offside but he scored with his foot which was onside?



10 Jan 2020 06:11:28
On Joe Allen, let's be honest MN cannot do 2 games a week so we do need a player like Joe Allen just to take some weight off MN when he gets a little tired.
i also see the Chinese league has put a cap on wages i wonder if Marko A. will return to the Prem.


1.) 10 Jan 2020 17:20:58
Surely the Chinese have to honour the contracts they made with the players they have signed. It’ll be renewal that’s the issue.

Strangely, I wouldn’t mind seeing Arnie in tandem with Haller, but the Daves have long enough memories not to consider him.

2.) 12 Jan 2020 07:23:32
Do we want Arnie back, personally apart from a few games he was pretty non existent for us, just went through the motions most of the time.
The players need to start training properly and put some effort in, still look like they are unfit to me.
Noble should drop out and Fornals start with Lanzini and rice, still a bit lightweight for me but should have plenty of running in Fornals and rice and guile in Lanzini.
We also need Antonio and haller up front.
My team for Everton
Fabianski/ Martin
Diop, Ogbonna, balbuena
Cresswell, rice, Fornals Lanzini, snodgrass
Antonio, haller

Anderson has no place in my time and should be told to harden himself up a bit before coming back into the fold.

Its impossible as even playing behind closed doors its a contact sport and cannot be played with 22 players on the field in June or August. We will be lucky to get a new season in September this year.

i do think now we have a chance to stay in the Premiership. We now have someone with pace, skill, and an eye for goal.
