Quique Sanchez Flores just sacked by Watford, panicking like fuck because they remain bottom after changing earlier. Fucking shambles of a club with the turnarounds they go through there but trying to hang on to the big money in that league. 

Any manager would be crazy to go there.

12 Managers in the last 10 years ffs, looking down the list I never knew Rodgers and Sean Dyche managed them.

Seem to have had a decent production line when it comes to producing managers. Think Boothroyd, Warburton, Dyche and Rodgers were all there at the same time at one point.

Yea, went last season, seen them pump the Geordies 3-0.  I live in East London.

They're one of the few EPL teams you can actually get tickets for now and again.

A big concrete bowl. Though the day we went was alright, Billy Bonds was there getting a stand named after him, good atmosphere. 

I was there. I live in Liverpool now but travel down for most game. 

To answer the original question, it's shit. Some games get it going, but there's no escaping it's an athletics stadium. 

We're shit, but at least at Upton Park we were shit in our own home, not government rented accommodation

Marco Silva surely gone in the morning.

I still have no idea why they appointed him in the first place. His record at Hull and Watford was atrocious.

Apparently he’s great on the training ground which is all fine and well but if your man management is awful then it’s for nothing. 

Everton need to get their next appointment right. They can’t keep ripping it up every 18 months or so, especially with the money they have invested in their squad (which is still horribly unbalanced considering the money they have spent on it).

Some people are suited to being coaches rather than managers. No harm in that.

His only real achievement is at Olympiakos, who have basically dominated Greek football for twenty years anyway.

This rainbow laced campaign is a load of shit.

When you have over 500 players registered to play football in your league (not including youth team players or players not in the squads of 25), and there still isn’t one openly homosexual among them, then you can hardly join a campaign talking about equality and inclusion for all without it feeling like nothing more than a glorified PR stunt.

A far better use of their resources would be trying to works towards tackling the institutionalised stigma of homosexuality in football and why there are players who are still closeted and scared or afraid to come out and having players wear rainbow laces isn’t going to do that.

Yeah I don’t know how he has such a good reputation because he hasn’t done anything to earn it.

How Silva still has that job I will never know.  3 points from second bottom when some were saying Everton could challenge for top 4. That was an unrealistic shout but with the money spent he should be sacked. 

The money they have spent and the return they have had for it is insane but even then their squad is so lopsided.

No reliable centre forward, an ageing Coleman at right back, loads of number 10’s/wide players who underwhelm and underperform.

Whoever gets the job has a lot of work to do but their DOF needs to address the imbalance in their squad too.

Heard somebody on talksport saying they thought the club were probably waiting till new year as they have a cunt of a run till then and wouldn't want s new manager coming in and having 4-5 losses straight away

Wouldn't be surprised to see Rodgers jump ship again to Arsenal, skirting round the question like fuck in that presser.

he would be crazy to do that leicester have far more potential than arsenal  which is a basket case just now  leicester have a lot of talented young players by all accounts a good chairman  and have more chance of winning anything than arsenal
