Moyes is tactically inept and David Weir needs to be sent to the retirement home pronto.

he's been sussed out for his midfield runs / he's got his 30k a week contract so he can't be arsed doing anything

Reckon, in all honesty, there needs to be a fresh approach. Gollum's probably read the riot act to them enough times this season, but he's not having a sustainable effect. Yes, his tactics and choices can be poor, but it's also down to the players and man management. Some of them have talent, yet make nowt of it. Few of them seem to have the pride anymore of pulling on the blue jersey and stepping out at Goodison. It's not as simple as clearing out the deadwood, but there has to be a shake up, and possibly transfer funds set aside.

I think it's cos they're just ****

Which pretty much shows up last year's "race" for 4th place as a mediocre affair at best. But we had bigger fish to fry :cool:

That too. Still don't think that Arteta's too shabby. He'd be one I'd build around, if I were in that position.

Losing 8 games at home this season just about sums it up. Our tactics seem to lie in "defending" well and hoping to score a goal because we can't come back from being behind, I don't remember the last time we've come back. Our attack is absolutely awful, we lack the final pass in the final third and anyone to score it. We lack a player that can come on and change the game, we lack any motivation when we're a goal down. Marcus Bent just sums up the team, doesn't give a **** and doesn't try at all.

Let's hope we get some players in during the January window, preferably strikers that aren't overweight with pace and skill. But Moyes has spent over £20 million this season and to end up at this position is just diabolical and I wouldn't trust him with another penny unless he produces another Arteta style buy.

We have nothing to prove.

*Ahem*

Mark Lawrenson seems to think it'll be 1-1. I'd go for a complete stalemate myself; 0-0.
Probably good in patches, but not very memorable.

(and now just cos I've said that, watch this game be a classic)
I reckon Henry 2 Chelsea 1 :cool:

Gotta love old Thierry! =')

He's been ***** ever since he had some long term injury at Porto last season. He's got no passion like a particular Italian headband wearing left back on our physio table.
