How do you like EFC's first season under Koeman so far? Personally I think RK is doing God's work, and that combined with some bloody good transfers both pre- and midseason (Schneiderlin, Stekelenburg, Lookman) makes the team look much better than during the last two seasons with Martinez at the helm. What do you reckon?
Also Merseyside derby is coming this Saturday, and I bloody hope Everton beat Liverpool this time. I mean, even Swansea of all teams could beat the Reds at their own turf this season...
I have a lot of respect for the Merseyside football teams as I love the city itself. I really like Koeman and Everton always do a great job by developing youngsters but I've never been to Goodison, though I've stood on Stanley Park where you can see both Goodison and Anfield and I was stunned at how close the two grounds are (I was seeing Brian Epstein's house he stayed in just behind the Anfield Road end of Anfield Stadium which banks out onto Stanley Park).
Great city, the most unique one in the U.K. personally - unbelievably cultured, The Beatles could only have come from that city alone and nowhere else. What do you think Everton's proposed move to the docks? As a casual observer, it would be sad to see Goodison Park go as I really love its rustic charm.

Well, Goodison Park is an important piece of history not just for Everton, but for the game of football as a whole - after all it is one of the oldest purpose-built football stadiums in the world. I don't mind a new stadium and I kind of get Moshiri's point of view that he doesn't want EFC to become a museum, but I do hope they will preserve the old ground in some way.

Everton are a decent club with decent fan base and how much of a legend is Seamus Coleman?
IRELAND CAPTAIN SEAMUS Coleman made a pair of Everton supporters’ dreams come true this weekend with a generous €2,000 donation to get the pair over to Goodison Park later this season. The story of Eoin Mulligan and friend Francis from Athlone and their shared passion for Everton went viral last week, with the pair initially raising enough money to bring them to Merseyside for the club’s Europa League qualifier with Hajduk Split. Francis, who has Asperger’s syndrome, was unable to attend the game last Thursday however, after falling sick before just hours before kick-off.
With that in mind the pair tried again and, with the help of defender Coleman, have now raised more than double the money needed for Francis’ dream to come true. After donating €2,000 Coleman wrote on Saturday: “Sorry you couldn’t make it to the game Francis. I hope you’re feeling better now. Hopefully this helps get you and Eoin your flights and accommodation for another game and I’m sure the club will look after you as always.”
The sizeable donation to the GoFundMe page means Eoin and Francis have now raised over €2,600 in just one day, with their initial goal being €1,100. After smashing their target Eoin wrote on Sunday: What a rollercoaster ride it has been. This fund will now enable us to plan the trip well in advance, also ensuring Francis has plenty of time to wrap his head around it and digest the information properly. “I will continue to leave the post up for another two days in the hope we can raise more well-needed funds for Aspire Ireland. “Thank you to everyone for all you have done I will be grateful to you for the rest of my life.” After seeing the donation come through Eoin wrote how much of an inspiration Coleman was to them and to the people of Ireland. “I am literally speechless,” he wrote. Not only is Seamus an inspiration to thousands of people across Ireland but he is also one of Francis’ favourite players of all time.
Who would have thought? Everton with LARGE SAMUEL at the helm seems to be somewhat invigorated. Also, we did not lose to the red shite in the last derby and kept our cool against Chelsea. Looking forward to the new year and another Merseyside Derby on January 5th.
