    So City and Liverpool don't challenge?  They just get it 

     

    Liverpool and City challenge each year, and sometimes they win it. It would be quite possible for them to challenge each year without winning it though - see us in the 90s as a reference.

     

    All I'm saying is that there is a clearly defined semantic difference between saying we're challenging for honours and that we intend to win them. Maybe that difference is too much for this guy. I would imagine West Ham see their goal as challenging for the title btw.  Doesn't mean they're ever going to win it.

    Honestly, my first thought was that this kid is going to get an avalanche of shit online (and maybe in person) and that could really affect his mental health.

     

    How old is he actually? He looks like he's a teenager but he mentions dropping out of uni so he must be at least 18. If he's serious about these signed photos then either he's doing a lot better than we think he is, it's gone to his head and he's lost all perspective, or he's having us on. I could maybe actually see the latter.

     

    I agree though, the culture of the city doesn't lend itself to this sort of posturing and people will fall over themselves to put him in his place. There's a way he could do this and be successful, but I'm not sure this is it.

  3. It's unlucky due to being pronounced the same as the word for death. They have apartment blocks over there that skip out the numbering of the 4th floor. And the 13th.

     

    You're also not meant to stand chopsticks up in your rice like rugby goalposts because it looks like the chinese character for the number 4.

     

    That said, I can't see the 4 on our strip :lol:

  4. If Rafa left Everton and remained available to the end of the season, and we end up going down, would anyone be up for switching Howe for him? I'd be half tempted. Not that I don't think Howe could do it, but if we end up going down then clearly he won't have had the impact on the team that we all would hope - and Rafa has got us out of there before, knows the players already, and was always the plan anyway.

     

    Or has that ship now sailed for good?

    I am not that fuzzed about getting relegated. It’s Ashley’s legacy. It has been on the cards for a couple of years, even under Rafa. If the takeover had been concluded ahead of a season there might have been a much better head start for the new owners but that wasn’t to be.

    Having to rebuild slowly in a lower league might also help to let the fake outrage settle about having rich but awkward owners. They certainly can’t blame us for making things too easy for ourselves.

     

    Might also give the owners a bit of time to settle in with a ready-made excuse for all concerned for the worst happening. I do believe they're going to need time to get up to speed with football, let alone the club itself.
