Everton have got this single thread lark pretty much sewn up so come on Yeedo's, let's keep one of our own! One was started recently but feck knows what happened to it however, if the interest is there I'll try and keep this up where possible.

Q - Can we really challenge the top 4?

The Players...

Robinson - Overrated?
Chimbonda - What's the latest?
Zokora - Will this be his season?
Jenus - Is the best yet to come?
Berbatov - Staying or going?
Keane - ...or Defoe?
Malbranque - Happy to keep him?
Defoe - What now?
Taarabt - Opinions?
Dawson - Improving?
Huddlestone - A future star?
Lennon - On the left?
King - Can he remain injury free?
Bale - Ready for the big time?

Just a few questions to get this going but let's not forget our leader, Martin Jol.. Is he the man to continue?

COME ON YOU SPURS!

even though it was only 4 years since bale left feels like the club is in a completely different position now. then we were hoping to scrape into 4th occasionally now set for back to back CL qualifications, a move into what will be a fantastic new stadium and feeling a touch of disappointment that it looks like we can't win the league despite playing the best football seen at WHL for decades

he's still so young and don't think anyof our key players will be going anywhere in the next 2 or 3 years anway. barca or real madrid can wait. why would he want to go anywhere else in england ?

even if sections of the idiot media are just waking up to how good we are everyone connected with the club has known it for a while

roger, if the gooners play anything like they have been recently it'll be a cricket score. we've been declaring in most home games this year but don't think we will if we get the chance against them

maryatt, you still need some luck to win things especially against sides with far bigger resources. manchester united could end up winning 3 pots in the last 12 months but they remain a very ordinary side nowhere near as good as us

we weren't ready to win the league last season and idiots in the media and fans of other clubs who said we blew it need to look at the table early last season. we won 6 of the first 16 games meaning we had to much to do 2nd half of the season against a leicester side who hardly made a mistake

our form this season would have won it comfortably but for chelsea winning 13 matches in row at one stage. it's virtually impossible to beat that - we've won 14 of the last 17 yet hardly made up any ground

Completely agree maf,I heard that Costa and Hazard weren't starting on Radio 5 long before the teams were handed in.
Irrespective as I've said before Son bullies the small teams and disappears against the top ones, particularly at Wembley.
To play him at left wing/back was ludicrous,Conte had 2 men on him and did a number and outsmarted both Son and Pochettino.
I called for the team that beat the Chavs at home with Davies in for Rose, instead Davies was dropped(I bet he was none too pleased)and an experimental team was fielded in a crucial game.
Pochettino may be alright at team tactics but he leaves a lot to be desired with selection and substitutions.
One can only hope he will learn from this, somehow I doubt it, it does appear his Achilles heel.

Conte had the tools to 'outthink Poch'. When you have a bench like theirs and with their experience you can have a plan and if the plan isn’t working you have reinforcements on the bench, game changers to effect what you require. We didn’t even have Danny Rose fit and Pochs hands and options were very limited.

He did not ask Son to make a reckless tackle and give away a penalty. As a team we played better than chelsea and scored 2 excellent team goals where a lot of credit is due to Poch. They scored brilliant individual goals because they have technically superior players in the first 11 and on the bench.

Unfortunately for next season chavs will improve their playing staff further, will we?

pretty clear he doesn't have much regard for the cups certainly compared to the league but hard to see the likes of real madrid taking a punt on him if he hasn't won anything

picked ludicrous teams in dortmund and monaco as well. understandable in dortmundeven though i was far from happy about it at the time. still a long way from the final and everyone probably including him thought we weren't likely to get another shot at winning the league any time soon but to do it in a must win CL game and cup semi final beggars belief

You'd think the more the play there the better they'll become. They played well on Saturday, just got sucker punched by an abnormally high conversion rate by Chelsea.

One of the things Danny Murphy said was that the pitch size isn't the problem but it's the length of grass and how soft the going is. To the naked eye all the games played at Wembley seem to be slower, the ball and players don't seem to move as quickly as on a normal pitch.

Presumably that's something they can get a hold of if lodging there for a year?

At a conference at Stamford Bridge next week, just googling "putting a hex on something"...

One problem with Wembley is you are going to have enormous away followings every week.  We'll probably have lower prices to try and fill the ground which I believe means we have to offer away supporters the same price.  So every club will have this one-off chance to see their team play a league match at Wembley with reasonable prices.  I can see plenty of teams bringing 10,000+ if they get the allocation.

KR, believe the PL rules are 3000 or 10% whatever is the lower figure. away clubs don't get massive allocations at old trafford for league matches there

obviously for cup ties the rules are somewhat different and some clubs may get 10000+

But United sell out every game.  I can't imagine we are going to sell out 90,000 every week so are we really going to say to teams you can only have 3000 even though there are going to be say 20,000 empty seats?  Unless it's restricted based on police advice.

Do what KR? They will have to expand Wembley to fit all the Spurs fans in.

I hope so mate!  It certainly helps that we have a great team.  Still can't believe we sold out that Europa League game, staggering.
Report mafeking April 28, 2017 7:02 PM BST
sure we'll have no problem filling it at 500 quid a throw. levy won't want 1000s of empty seats

in any event where are we gonna find an extra 25000 at presumably well north of a grand per season in the new ground if they won't pay half that at wembley ?

A friend of mine is No. 63,000 and odd on the season ticket waiting list
