Ged - I doubt it given some would argue night is day.

If we do win it, does this count as a trophy for Moyes? Is Lyndon going to hot foot it to United with Moyes, Weir, Neville, Lumsden, Barkley, Fellaini, and Baines? Will Mancweb get created, clean up, and then bids come in for BKs shares.

We'll see. Anyway good luck lads.

No Ian - BK will tell us he has been a fan of TW for years and will call it The People's Site........... in memory of............

It's almost like winning a trophy!

This site is superior to other football ones I've been on.

Brent Stephens
009 Posted 12/05/2013 at 08:15:03
My votes in. See if we can get near the 42% for Cartilage Free Captain (Spuds).

Ian, night follows day - Dour but Predictable!

Michael & Lyndon - congratulations on your nomination; I've given you my vote.

ToffeeWeb's currently at 14%..good luck!

Brin Williams
012 Posted 12/05/2013 at 08:35:49
17% now - every vote seems to move the % so keep voting COYB TWers

014 Posted 12/05/2013 at 08:37:40
Easily the best football site going - well done Michael and Lyndon, if you could replicate this on the pitch we'd be world beaters!

COYTW!

018 Posted 12/05/2013 at 08:33:15
Votes in!

First and last thing I read each day tbh...

The regulars like Doddy, Edwards, Enswhistle (sorry mate can't spell), Cheek, Eugene and the rest of you guys/girls out there, you are the ones that too, add life to this site... Even if at times some of the opinions raised gives the reaction of WTF?!, you cannot hold back the passion of us Evertonians! Well done Mike/Lyndon and all!

Sam Hoare

Congrats Lyndon and Michael. If TW weren't so damn good then perhaps I'd get a lot more writing done!

Great website, but if you poll 6th Ross and Eugene what your bags packed.
Richard Reeves
098 Posted 12/05/2013 at 11:33:22
If I remember rightly, it was between us and Republic of Mancunia as to who got the most votes last year. Looks like they haven't got the stomach for it this time round.
Matt Traynor
117 Posted 12/05/2013 at 12:03:13
Voted, currently 2nd. Do the top 4 get to play off against the best of Europe?
Kev Johnson
121 Posted 12/05/2013 at 12:18:08
I've voted. TW now at 24.8%. Well played MK and LL.

Matt - if things stay as they are, I understand that TW qualifies for Europe where we get to test our football knowledge, wit and intelligence against the likes of Barcelona and Bayern. I reckon we could give them a game, eh?

Steve Higham
130 Posted 12/05/2013 at 12:30:56
This is at last something we can all agree on ToffeeWeb is the best fans site. My thanks to Mike and Lyndon - and also thanks to ALL contributors whether we agree with each other or not.
.After the last few days no matter what our views we all support a great team and we all want the best for our club EVERTON .
Pete Anthony
144 Posted 12/05/2013 at 12:59:40
Done, TW currently in a CL berth but the top spot is within reach... COYTWers...
Dennis Stevens
148 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:06:51
Still only 2nd - temporarily, surely?! If there's better out there they must be bloody good - perhaps there's a site where you can get free pie & cake. Mmmm cake.
Brent Stephens
150 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:14:23
I'm just glad we've probably reached our goal of not being near the bottom of the poll.
Nick Entwistle
152 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:20:04
One thing I've been thinking and that's what happens if we get taken over by an oligarch sheik and over time grow a massive fan base in Asia?

Are Michael and Lyndon prepared for the 10000% increase in submissions and articles - and should they learn mandarin?

Mark Frere
154 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:23:34
Is anyone forgetting how good the Official website is?
James Stewart
155 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:26:26
Well deserved. Official site? I haven't been on that in years!
Eugene Ruane
168 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:26:42
Done - good luck!

By the way Nick, you say - "Great website, but if you poll 6th Ross and Eugene what your bags packed"

'WHAT your bags packed'?

Shame - you appear to have been so carried away with your hilarious comment, you've lost concentration and written 'what' instead of 'want'.

Or maybe I'm wrong and you WANTED to say 'what your bags packed'.

To be fair, It sounds stupid, but it would make no less sense than most of your swooning 'I heart David' gibberish.

Nick Entwistle
171 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:52:49
Couldn't you just let that one go? Thought it was funny no matter what side of the fence you're on. Relax a little.
Mat Fearon
183 Posted 12/05/2013 at 14:00:45
Great effort, it is a superb site.

Eugene, do you have a sense of humour? You need to lighten up.

Eugene Ruane
184 Posted 12/05/2013 at 13:59:08
Nick - "Couldn't you just let that one go? Thought it was funny no matter what side of the fence you're on. Relax a little"

Why DO the desperate always resort to 'relax'?

I'm perfectly relaxed Nick and it was your comment that showed who couldn't 'let it go'.

Seems (like Corporal Jones's fuzzie-wuzzies) you don't like it 'up you'.

(nb: if you want to give it, be prepared to take it).

Chad Schofield
187 Posted 12/05/2013 at 14:13:23
Good luck Michael and Lyndon... you have my vote.
Eugene Ruane
188 Posted 12/05/2013 at 14:11:36
Mat - "Eugene, do you have a sense of humour? You need to lighten up"

Mat - You need to stop using 80s American-speak.

(but please feel free to let me know when I need to 'move on')

Mat Fearon
191 Posted 12/05/2013 at 14:19:39
Eugene, which part is "80's American speak"?
And move on from what?
Eugene Ruane
193 Posted 12/05/2013 at 14:22:56
-(Jesus!)-

Forget it Mat, whatever you said I agree with, you're right, I'm wrong.

James Flynn
212 Posted 12/05/2013 at 15:51:29
Voted. Great site.

Good luck.

Ross Edwards
239 Posted 12/05/2013 at 17:31:07
I have voted for you MK and Lyndon, a brilliant site with brilliant fans on it.

If we don't win I'll take the rap!

Steve Brown
244 Posted 12/05/2013 at 17:44:30
Something called SCFC2 is beating TW, we can't have that so get voting.
Anthony Flack
525 Posted 12/05/2013 at 21:54:56
More than richly deserved
Gavin Ramejkis
660 Posted 13/05/2013 at 07:15:18
Voted, ahead by a nose, come on boys and girls where else can we bitch and moan to our hearts content? Great site guys, keep it up.
Matt Traynor
679 Posted 13/05/2013 at 09:17:07
Back in 2nd place. It seems the RS and Sunderland having multiple entries is dividing their vote, but can anyone explain how a Stoke City website is leading?!? Probably a viral campaign. Get onto it via Facebook and Twatter. Maybe ask Bluekipper / GOT to help? Although I suspect the former will just vote for the Stoke site.
Michael Winstanley
929 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:04:08
Don't forget to vote.
Dennis Stevens
933 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:07:31
I see Baines is doing well in the best defender vote
Colin Glassar
935 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:12:15
How do you vote?
Dennis Stevens
937 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:12:06
No doubt there'll be a few here voting for 'Be Careful What You Wish For' in the Book section!
Dan Brierley
940 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:19:27
I have voted, still in 2nd. I hope that MK and LL do not bottle it, I don't think I could forgive them....
Barry Rathbone
941 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:26:57
Best forum bar none - find ways to fiddle the vote if possible - I love crime.
Tony Cheek
944 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:28:09
keep it up Michael/Lyndon, not a day without!..........get voting Blues, we are down by 2 %!!!
Gavin Ramejkis
946 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:32:38
We must have more voters than Swansea surely????
Dennis Stevens
947 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:32:47
Moyes 2nd to SAF for manager of the season at the moment
Dan Brierley
948 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:32:20
Dennis 937, I hope no Martinez fans have a look at the managers voting either...
Dennis Stevens
950 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:36:31
Dan #948 - I should imagine anybody indicating support of Martinez or Benitez, etc will be doing so on the basis of how they view their managerial career to date & whether they think they'd be a good fit for Everton, I don't see how a vote like this comes into it at all. It's just a bit of end of season nonsense, that's all.
Dave Lynch
951 Posted 13/05/2013 at 20:34:58
Done.
Apparently BK has just stated. He's been a fan of TW since the early days .
He said he remembers remembers reading it on the tram on his to the game and his Grandad used to help write it on slate in the old days.
Ross Edwards
976 Posted 13/05/2013 at 21:34:41
MK, Lyndon, I've had an idea, what about having a ToffeeWeb Awards in which we vote in different catagories?
Ian Bennett
984 Posted 13/05/2013 at 21:44:31
Ross - have you thought this one through?
Ross Edwards
985 Posted 13/05/2013 at 21:45:16
Yes, I know who will win Worst Post Ian. I've got the acceptance speech ready...
Ian Bennett
988 Posted 13/05/2013 at 21:48:50
Ah well one more trophy than Moyes.....
Ian Smitham
989 Posted 13/05/2013 at 21:44:01
Not wishing to creep to the people that run this site, and having just had a look through the list of voters, can I implore any credible regular contributor to vote for ToffeeWeb in the vote.

I, for one am on here day and night and I guess I am not alone.

Vote ToffeeWeb.

Ross Edwards
995 Posted 13/05/2013 at 21:59:48
Ian
I'll put that on the CV and I'll be at City in a months time!
Gerry Quinn
003 Posted 13/05/2013 at 22:08:17
28% now - like Hibbo hammering his one and only ever goal - a cert
Jamie Crowley
084 Posted 14/05/2013 at 03:46:41
Done; kissin our sister in second... need more votes.

C'mon!

What's wrong with 80s American-speak? Dude!

Jamie Crowley
086 Posted 14/05/2013 at 03:48:47
if we did have a TW awards (and we should it'd be hilarious) Kev Johnson has to get best Player-Manager.

Just sayin...

TW awards would help some dull summer days. Although this summer may not be as dull.

Frederik Pedersen
131 Posted 14/05/2013 at 11:06:17
Trailing SCFC2 by 0,9 % as we speak
Brendan McLaughlin
136 Posted 14/05/2013 at 11:29:22
We've just taken the lead thanks to a fine individual vote by a young and very promising TW poster
Kev Johnson
142 Posted 14/05/2013 at 11:55:34
Michael/Lyndon - I urge you to display this thread more prominently on the Home Page. Stick some flashing lights around it! Anything to make sure people see it. It would be a travesty if any users of this site failed to vote for ToffeeWeb.

Come On You TW!

[Er, why is "Blog of the Year" not "Unofficial Club Site of the Year"?}

Eugene Ruane
333 Posted 14/05/2013 at 17:43:57
Getting close!
Nick Entwistle
337 Posted 14/05/2013 at 17:51:18
If you look at the players/ managers section, Moyes is second behind Fergie, Howard is third a long way back from De Gueueyeue, Baines is storming for best defender, Fellaini in third but well behind Bale for midfielder... yet inexplicably we don't have anyone for the striking category...
Ross Edwards
374 Posted 14/05/2013 at 19:06:17
Nick
Who's De Gueueyeue?! Is that a mix of David De Gea and Magaye Gueye?
Colin Glassar
376 Posted 14/05/2013 at 19:09:42
Ross, I tried o spell macnamanam the other day. I still think it looks wrong.
Ross Edwards
379 Posted 14/05/2013 at 19:15:04
"Brendan
We've just taken the lead thanks to a fine individual vote by a young and very promising TW poster"
Who is that Brendan?
Patrick Murphy
382 Posted 14/05/2013 at 19:19:59
well we've fallen behind by a few percentage points I just voted
Colin Glassar
383 Posted 14/05/2013 at 19:28:27
Just voted. Who's SCFC?
Gerry Quinn
445 Posted 14/05/2013 at 19:25:13
How do we vote for Victor in the striking category?
Lee Mandaracas
868 Posted 15/05/2013 at 13:55:47
I think we need another push by Michael & Lyndon pushing this story higher back up on the homepage, or refreshing it. SCFC (Swansea City) have pole position at the moment with ToffeeWeb second. To be fair, a better site wouldn't be a problem winning but having visited it, their site is infinitely inferior to this one in a number of categories - user friendliness, style, site mapping, layout, clarity of text, content, interaction, etc, etc, etc.

They are in the number one spot because their visitors have driven the numbers up and not because they are a better site. So that is precisely what I propose we do haha. Seriously, visit SCFC2 and if you think it is better than ToffeeWeb without considering your team's bias leave it as it is but if you think they hold a false position please vote accordingly.
