Everton

It was a funny old weekend of football. Premier League matches alongside some juicy FA Cup Quarter Finals always dilute the attention and I am not sure we are any the wiser as a result. Mind you, it would take more than a game of football to make me wise, that is for sure.
Dear Gareth. Could you make England play like Spurs please? Thanks. Before we wax lyrical about the Premier League to soften
I spent at least five minutes last night trying to remember a better Champions League debut. I recall Rooney getting a hat
You know what? I'm going to try to be an optimist. As avid readers of the Ignorant Fan's column can attest to, I was immensely confused by Boro's purchases this summer. However, I am going to believe in the club. I am going to believe that Karanka's fights with senior players in March have been forgiven and forgotten...
I'm a little confused about Leicester. On the one hand, Musa, Mendy and Zieler are nothing more than decent Europa League signings. Normally, a title-winning side would be torn apart for these kind of transfers...
The FA Cup is a stranger beast than normal this year - in most cases, a semi-final line up where only one of the five is counted among the traditional big boys, and a quarter-final where both Arsenal and Chelsea were comprehensively beaten, would make for a major shock that would be talked about for days.
With plans possibly afoot to kill off FA Cup replays and play games midweek in order to increase English chances in Europe and in international tournaments, we should enjoy the cup in its current form. Although looking ahead, I'm not seeing too many possible shocks.
This Saturday I went to Goodison Park to see my local team Dagenham & Redbridge take on Everton in the FA Cup. This is what it meant to me and many other full time and part time Daggers fans.
The moment when a player leaves a club isn't usually the time that his efforts get the fairest assessment. If he is going at the peak of his powers the fans are disinclined to appreciate the good times because they feel jilted. If he goes when his best days are behind him, fans are slow to remember him in his pomp.
Cheer up, Aaron.
