I would be intrigued how they were forced to sell an asset at a reduced price? Barkley could have threatened to down tools (not that Everton would have noticed in recent years) but that's really no different to any worker withholding their labour and I thought an old red like you would appreciate that!  Cheesy Wink

Apart from the fact that "any worker" withholding their labour in any other industry would be most likely sacked.

Dunno, you'll have to ask Fred Elliott that. But it seems that's not the only transfer controversy Everton's new owners have got embroiled in:

I donít buy into the extreme elements of the rivalry, but the number of Town fans congratulating Bristol City last week was pathetic

A few City fans got a bit upset on Twitter after I suggested that they must have won the league cup after they way they had celebrated. I wanted to know when the open top bus tour was going to be.

I donít think they quite understand irony Smiley

Nice Smiley

Very few of their fans that I know (living in Somerset there are loads of them coming out of the woodwork here) have no sense of irony or much of a sense of humour.

One of my best mates is a shithead and I got a torrent of abuse when I suggested that they were making tee shirts celebrating their almost win at City Cheesy half and half scarves at the ready.

Bless them, let them have their 5 minutes of fame, after all we have won that cup and got to the semi finals another 2 times since then, both of which we won the first leg 2-1 Wink

I do love how a lot of them always seem to mentioned that we are always on the brink of going bust.

Christ. That's some pretty nasty stuff alleged against someone who isn't exactly popular here to start with. If you tolerate Rix...

Not really sure which thread this warrants. Anyone see the psg ref tonight that kicked out at the Nantes player and then sent the player off for dissent. Absolutely crazy. Never seen a ref react before and will be interesting to see what happens

Bristol City trying to avoid planning conditions on the stadium revamp by claiming their published attendances are not the same as those through the turnstiles due to season ticket non shows because they hit 5 games with 25k attendances. Apparently common practice for most clubs to do this.

There have been one or two sparse looking crowds at the CG this season that seemed to be announced  higher.

You would imagine that a club is duty bound to count the actual attendance to ensure they adhere to their safety certificate, so Bristol City should be able to produce evidence to match the wording.
