    Thought Benitez was a good manager, many had him as the best of the rest at the start of the season?

    People still living off his career before 2015. I said it before, Bruce did just as good of a job at Newcastle than Rafa. No idea why people thought he was great there.

    In Norway we have one free match every week and today it was Spurs. And now that it's postponed they chose Leicester instead of M. City :neutral:

    Looks like they made the right decision 😏

    I hate everything about this announcer on Peacock doing the City game. I can’t imagine how much it has to suck being the announcer by him listening to “GOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLLL” dragged on for 30 seconds.

    It was like going back 10-15 years the way some were bigging him up.

    But Bruce actually got some big money, Rafa didn't. Ask Newcastle fans, they'll tell you that.

    It's a massive problem when they let the Spanish announcers do it in English. Just doesn't translate well.

    It seems very forced.

    Didn’t realise we have a midweek MD now, Merseyside derby on Wednesday and United vs Arsenal on Thursday. Lovely stuff.

    It's to do with the temperature. Cooler in Africa during our winter.

    Our being the UK.

    Yes, but then people can’t complain when fans get pissed off and don’t watch. They need to look into building indoor stadiums.

    You think they can just afford to revamp every stadium with advanced cooling and roofing systems, or rebuild stadiums all over the place?

    I agree AFCON is annoying, but it's a very privileged view to think the rest of the world should just change to match what we want.

    Exactly, it's entitlement. They shouldn't change it because it works better for them, unless they obviously find something that's even better for them.

    And indoor stadiums absolutely do not belong to football and never should. For me, the element of weather will always be a part of football.

    AFCON in winter wouldn't be a problem if there were winter breaks like in the Bundesliga. I'm against it though since nothing beats the tough schedule around boxing day, PL football to watch every other day in those cold winter days.

    The Athletic claiming that Benitez could be sacked if Everton don’t get a result against Liverpool.

    I have to hold my hand up with Rafa, I was convinced he was a top manager still, looked to start bright with Everton, but he's falling apart quick.

    Ugh... I dread this next match as every time we play Everton it seems one of our players get injured. Now add the possibility of Rafa getting the sack, it's lining up to be a real scrapper.

    Some people just aren't looking at the big picture. I think Agent Rafa is doing an amazing job. Remember, kids, The Waiter always delivers.

    You can make a credible argument that Everton will be in the bottom 4 at Christmas.

    I thought Ancelotti was underperforming last year but apparently not :joy:

    That’s fine, but then they shouldn’t be surprised when fans continue to ❤️❤️❤️❤️ about the tournament and their viewership ratings stagnate. International football is already in the gutter as it is.

    Doesn't help that Everton have about 3 good players and they're all injured

    Who will Everton get in if they sack him?

    Foncesca?

    If only there was a manager who had recently left a top club…
