I may well have missed this or be wrong as I'm not sure how accurate the all-time table is but I believe that Everton are only 16 goals away from being the first club in world football to score 7,000 league goals.
If this has been missed surely this is a good promotional opportunity for Everton? Who's going to get the 7,000th goal?

It's something the Club are going have to promote in player and manager interviews.

Because La Liga started in 1920s, we are ahead of Real and Barcelona (both less than 6100 league goals):
On the other hand, we have that Celtic scored more than 10000 league goals, Rangers almost 10000 and Hearts around 7500 league goals:
Juventus scored just above 6000 league goals and River Plate around 6800.

Given the relatively easy league Celtic and Rangers, and to an extent, certainly down the years, Barcelona and Real Madrid are in, I would have thought those clubs would have been nearer or surpassed 7,000 goals.
I will assume Steve meant in the English Football League.

I couldn't agree more. But when it happens (surely it will? Surely we can score another 16 goals this season?), it will hopefully get mentioned in some media outlets. When it does, the resulting reaction from the RS will, I'm sure, be fun to behold.
On the strength of that, I shall mention it at every possible opportunity!

That reminder extending to our current custodians, as this might be the last landmark we reach before anyone else, if we don't start winning things again.
14 Posted 07/10/2018 at 09:05:06
We would have been the first to concede 8,000 though.

Was that with 3 points for a win or 2?
21 Posted 24/10/2018 at 10:42:25
Simply, as Drew states, we've just played far more games than anyone, so we'd won most, drew most, and even lost most!
Link The home and away split is very interesting and with such a large sample size shows just how much better at home we have always been.

Hopefully our failings will be rectified by the current management team.

It's the same with the 125 years in the top flight a few seasons ago when we had the shite Keijan plastic jersey kit that was supposed to look retro, Sky didn't give a shite then either.
26 Posted 24/10/2018 at 12:49:44
Basically, they couldn't give a shit about us. This doesn't bother me though. As long as we keep going and aim for the top six, that will do me. They will then shit themselves when an outsider suddenly takes the place of one of their beloved "top six" teams.
27 Posted 24/10/2018 at 13:04:56
I do think one of the projected top 6 will fall right back, and we will push higher. But that 19 point gap is massive.
The projection shows that the RS meanwhile are 3rd. Spurs are above them in 2nd being 3 points better off than last season. Liverpool are just 2 points. They clearly haven't played anyone yet. Man City, their fans say, but they beat City last season and drew with them this season.
City meanwhile are scoring more and winning more than last season. So they are still a very long way out front.

I usually ignore Champions League as much as a human being can ignore something, but yesterday I watched City winning against Shaktar Donetsk. I can't imagine Everton touching the ball on their half or creating a chance in that match.

Sure, the sky 6 don't take it seriously in the early rounds and field a reserve side, but it's usually a case of one of them limping into the semi-finals, at which stage they put out a first choice XI and take it seriously. Mainly since Mourinho made a big thing of saying winning that in February set the tone for the business end of the season.
Now, the FA Cup has also been dominated by the sky 6. But the sides winning it have usually been those of the sky 6 struggling and out of Europe. It's the domain of Arsenal (won 3 of the last 5 seasons) as they go all out to win it to "save their season". Chelsea won it last season in a year they failed to make the top 4. Man United won it when they failed to make the top 4. This is a competition that is usually won by a side outside of the top 4 (last time it was won by someone in the top 4 was double winning Chelsea in 2012). Therefore, it is the one I believe that we have the best chance of winning.

I think Evertonians were quietly getting ready to believe that the Carabo Cup was there to be won until we really messed up against Southampton, but I hope you're both right, Steve and Dennis, because the FA Cup will always be special to most of us.
But going on about real belief, it's something I've not seen since Mystic Meg made that prediction all those years ago!
