    Wonder if Hughes and Jokanovic will survive past the international break.

    I think Southampton will have bigger issues if/when they make their decision. Fulham at least could look at a manager like Rodgers who plays an expansive style and could use the current squad and not have to make wholesale changes like a Moyes/Allardyce would. But what can Southampton do? Their squad is a bit all over the place. Ever since replaced Koeman with Puel they've just looked bereft of ideas and lost their identity

    Hoo wee.

    This one is really going to hurt, especially on Remembrance Day as well.

    Loaded. Absolutely... loaded.

    I feel sick.

    Actually hoping for United and Everton wins this weekend.

    We'd best be doing the business after the shit show in midweek.

    Seeing Everton win doesn't actually bother me. Sometimes I hope they win.

    Really? Why? Haha...

    I mean they are kind of insignificant but I dont want to see them do well. They are kind of a non-factor I guess. I do hope they win this weekend though.

    If Everton win at Stamford Bridge on the weekend they would have broken a 25 year drought.

    They have improved as of late and may be able to take points off us in light of our midweek exertions against BATE, but the gap in talent between Chelsea and Everton is still substantial. I would say a Chelsea win is definitely more likely than not.

    Why do you dislike them so much? Just seems like you hate them for the sake of it..

    If they were in and around the top 4 maybe I’d change my tune. The only thing that annoyed me about Everton in recent memory was Mori injuring Origi, but he got sold.

    And Origi is terrible anyway.

    Word is that if we fail to beat Watford then Hughes is out. Allerdyce and Moyes have been mentioned as replacements. Led Reed has gone. We are currently a basket case and watching us play is extremely painful.

    Approximate figure. :D

    At the start of the season, I figured that Chelsea would come 3rd and Everton 7th. For mine, Everton have more talent than any other side outside of the Top 6, benefit from not playing in the Europa League and they have in Marco Silva a manager whom I rank fairly highly.

    However, while they have good players across the pitch, they are still learning to click as a unit. Gomes/Mina are still being integrated into the side and they do tend to rely on set-pieces to create chances. They also give away a lot of silly goals on set-pieces.

    Additionally, on a head-to-head comparison, would any Everton players get into Chelsea's first XI? Richarlison would be a good chance and Sigurdsson would definitely be in contention.

    You could make a case for Coleman given that Azpi's been a little disappointing, but most people would still plump for the latter. Zouma can't play against us and IMO doesn't have the passing ability to fit well into Sarri's system (nor does Keane). Digne is a better defender than Alonso, but the latter is so dangerous going forward that it's very hard not to select him. I like Pickford, but Kepa's taken to Chelsea really well after a shaky couple of games. Jorginho is irreplaceable in Sarri's system. Gueye is a midfield dynamo, but Kante is Kante. And as for Hazard...

    Losing Hughes would be good but Fat Sam/Moyes just puts you back in the same cycle of mediocrity.
