The Chosen Blog: Taking the Positives →
Positives include: more experience, learning from adversity, an “easier” stretch forthcoming, establishing a central midfield partnership, and having three solid center backs. Oh, and this picture:
comethroughkaleidoscope replied to your post: I just heard something that makes me really,… Now I gotta know what it’s about. (I was going to suggest Pienaar (since I call him Peanuts), but I’m /assuming/ I’m wrong…) Yes. It’s about Pienaar. Ahem. Here’s the full story. I know it’s tough to distinguish between fact and fiction on the internet, but the guys who run...
I just heard something that makes me really, really excited. Yes, it’s about Everton. Here, a clue:
I can't stand girls who are like "I'm a girl and I...
andrewkgsmith: It’s like, if you’re into football that’s standard, so obviously you’re not into football, so stop pretending you are, because it’s pretty insulting to the girls who actually take an interest in the sport and aren’t just trying to show off to the guys like an annoying whore. It’s more about the fact that because of our gender people feel the need to make us prove...
On Tim Ream
He was just on my mind as I’m about to watch him play against LA. It amazes how much the pendulum has swung with him. Last season, he was set up to be the savior of the future for the USMNT. This season people say that “he should never wear a US shirt again.” I hate hate HATE it when people say they never want to see a certain player in a US shirt again, particularly young...
whatelsecanwedonow: My new Everton kit came with a free tee. Fuck yeah. How’d you manage this? I want one!
I love soccer but the truth is...
I’m one of those fans who 90% of the time can’t be bothered to watch a match that doesn’t involve one of my teams. And generally the other 10% are only big games (like, finals) or games which involve my favorite players who are generally one of my teams. Sometimes I’ll watch a rival in the hope they get beat, but only if I’m really really bored. I’m a bad...
oh everton I love you so much it hurts
I hate scapegoating, I’ve mentioned this before. We could have won that one if we’d finished our chances so I don’t want to say one person cost us the win. However…every time Jan Mucha plays I get nervous because I just don’t have any confidence in him back there. Yeah, he does some things well (the same things Howard does well, and better) but he’s...
so if I may an unreasonable tribalistic asshole...
The fact that Wolves/Man City and Man United/Aldershot (!!) were both chosen to be televised over Everton/Chelsea in the round of 16 of the Carling Cup is, frankly, a bunch of crap. You’ve got a fixture between two premier league clubs, one chasing Europa League and the other Champions League/league title who have quite a cup tie history over the past two or three years; then you’ve...
Excuse the language but I think what John Terry...
thisislovex: It could have also been yeah, yeah fucking blind cunt, fucking knobhead directed at the ref. I’m 99% sure that he wasn’t being racist especially considering that Ashley Cole was practicually right next to him when he supposably said it. That’s the thing with people on the internet trying to lipread what happen in a match. When one person tries to say “this is what...
theupstart13 replied to your post: Player ratings? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT MEGAN, NO GAME WAS PLAYED TODAY BETWEEN THESE TEAMS. Also why is Vellios so young? I must have dreamed it, then. ;) On Vellios, he looks much older. I pretend he’s 25 and then I don’t feel guilty for the thoughts I have about him. I mean, they’re innocent…enough, but for a 19-year-old (when...
I hate doing these things. I feel like if I do them everyone will disagree and argue and it will be horrible. Oh well. I’m doing them today just as a quick way to say who did well, who didn’t, blah blah blah. (These are Everton’s for Everton-Fulham, in case you were wondering, because I don’t really care about any other game.) Tim Howard - 7 Tony Hibbert - 6 Sylvain...
We play Manchester United next week. A United team coming off of a 6-1 defeat to their rivals. ugh.
Fuck off City. EVERTON WIN.
Fox Gets World Cup TV Rights →
101110: alexher: My issue personally with fox has nothing to do with image quality but they way they have handled the UEFA Champions League finals. What I love about ESPN is they don’t speak down to fans, they don’t go for stupid gimmicks or anything, they present a high quality product that is insightful and assumes all american’s aren’t stupid about the game. Fox has done the opposite. They...

Oh, City. You’re always good for comic relief.
I know this isn’t a huge deal, but it causes me to freak out on the internet when someone says “STAR PLAYER RESIGNS.” Like, what? Why? What happened? Why is a star player quitting his team? Re-sign: to sign again. (Will Robin van Persie re-sign for Arsenal?) Resign: to give up one’s post (Martin O’Neill resigned from Aston Villa.)

omg-yanks: Is he really suing a bar for serving people alcohol for $20 MILLION? Regardless of if the bar broke the District’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Act, the bar did not make the driver drive that night, the bar did not make Charlie Davies break curfew, the bar did not make Charlie Davies get in the car, the bar did not kill the other passenger. You don’t deserve $20 mil because you fucked...

otherstars: STOP GRASPING AT EVERY LITTLE THING TO DISCREDIT EVRA. I do not care if you don’t like him or that he’s been involved in racism investigations in the past (though never as the sole accuser, despite what some people are saying)—none of that in any way means he’s lying about this. The way people are talking about this debacle, you would think it was a worse crime to accuse someone of...
Can I make a comment with regard to Patrice Evra’s claim that Luis Suarez racially abused him? Just because Evra made the claim before and the players were cleared doesn’t mean he was lying. It just means it was never proven. He could very well have been telling the truth. Racist taunting does happen during games, let’s not kid ourselves. Maybe Evra is the type of person who...
refusedunicorn: A little backstory to this clip before you watch it: Will Smith’s father abandoned him and his mother when he was a child, and when Will was finally getting into show business and making a name for himself, he tried to snake his way back into his life like nothing happened. Will co-wrote this episode, and James Avery (Uncle Phil) said “this scene was the hardest thing I’ve...
I wanna know what percent I am. Am I the 1%? The 47? The 53? The 99? Is there like a survey to take that I can find this stuff out and write a personal statement in my notebook then take a picture so I can proudly show off my new identity to the tumblr-sphere? BECAUSE I FEEL LEFT OUT.
