I'm a Liverpool fan who likes to have a dig at Everton whenever the opportunity arises, but as far as i'm concerned, the measure of a big club is fans and history. Everton certainly have both.
Money is a short term luxury, mid term at most. Look at the state of our club. Two fat jokers come in and splash the cash on Torres and Mascherano for 50 mill. This summer they throw Rafa a 5 year deal, break even in the transfer market, the stadium stalls and were struggling to get 4th.
Fans and history are what makes clubs 'big', and the 3 clubs you mention have neither. Have either of them even totalled 10 years in the top flight, as opposed to Everton's 100 years? Not to mention their complete lack of trophies. When i think of Everton I think Dixie Dean and Alan Ball, in the same respects of Dalglish/Rush at Liverpool and Charlton/Cantona at United. When I think of Wigan, Hull and Bolton, I think Scharner, Bernard Mendy and Gudjohnson. Even now i think of Everton players Arteta and Saha, who are both classes above the pick of the players at the three clubs mentioned.
As I say, I love having a dig at Everton, and your article did make me chuckle a bit. But I had to comment, because this is slack slack journalism. Shocking in fact. I see you also play the whole "season ticket holder and away day goer" card too. It's irrelevant. My dad is housebound and he knows as much about football as anyone, he'd laugh his head off if he read this article.
If you've got any hope of making a decent career out of journalism, stop quoting football manager and stop writing such ridiculous articles.
Summed up above, you arent explaining yourself. If you believe that people see us along with the likes of hull, then your mates, like yourself evidently, know nothing about football. Fair enough if we were relegation strugglers, or say it in the 90's, but after the season were we were in an FA cup final, and finishing in the top 6 for 4 of the last 5 years, how can you justify it? Everyone knows were a big club, and i think probably less than 1 percent of the country would put us alongside wigan, bolton and hull. Get some new friends who have actually watched football, and a new job. As someone said, call ya'self an evertonian?? We dont need people like you at the match... sort it out
By: jim bobbys
Craig Rimmer..i think your problem is(and its an unusual one for a journalist) that you are not very good at writing what you mean, you just aren't articulate. If you had written something along the lines of how you dont think everton get the respect they deserve from some media outlets and how some people dont see us as a big club anymore, then some of us evertonians would have been more sympathetic and understnading to your article. Instead though you wrote this rubbish piece, which doesnt even stir debate. you just keep writing about how us evertonians are at breaking point and saying hail marys praying that players dont leave. well i for one have more confidence in my team and you should too.....dont give up the day job Rimmer!

Again, a lot of you are missing the point lads...unfortunately.
I am not saying Everton are a small club, of course I am not. Can you not see, however, why to an outsider/foreigner it may seem that way?
This is why it is pushing Evertonians to breaking point; the club, because of the media and the lack of funding, is no longer getting treated with the respect it deserves.
In fact, thinking about it, your angered comments prove my point that you are very frustrated with how outsiders view the club.

Moise Kean’s difficult start to his career at Everton continues after it emerged the striker was dropped from the squad for a breach of club rules.
It is understood that the £27m summer signing from Juventus was omitted from the matchday 18 for the win at Southampton on Saturday after being late for a team meeting.

Emery’s Arsenal have lost their direction and Spurs’ problems start at full-back but Burnley’s Dwight McNeil is on song
Riyad Mahrez impressed only in spells during his first season at Manchester City but, with Leroy Sané felled by a cruciate injury in August’s Community Shield victory, the onus was on the £60m man to step up. An imperious performance at West Ham on the opening day of the season suggested he would do exactly that, yet he has started only four league games since – two of those being defeats – and with his side desperate for goals in a critical game at Anfield he was not called on at all. Mahrez remains a magical player on his day but the suspicion remains that he is a player who reflects his team’s performance rather than dictates it. City broke the bank to sign Mahrez from Leicester. With their defence a shambles, it looks in hindsight like a woeful misjudgment. Alex Hess

From John Fashanu to Andoni Goikoetxea, it is not just the injured who feel the pain of career-threatening tackles
‘Take that.” Roy Keane stood over Alf-Inge Haaland, lying in a crumpled heap never to play a full game again, delivered his message and walked away without remorse. As reactions go – as tackles go too, if Keane’s infamous lunge can be called that – it could hardly have been more different to that of Son Heung-Min, who broke down in tears after André Gomes broke his ankle last week. On Wednesday night, Son dedicated his opening goal against Red Star Belgrade to the Everton midfielder. “I’m so sad this happened and that I was involved with this situation. I feel really, really sorry about this accident,” he said.
Be clear: Gomes is the victim, unable to return to playing for a long time, if at all. But Son’s reaction was a reminder that for players involved in serious injuries it is not always so easy to walk away. There’s guilt, even if there is no blame, a backlash, a desperation to atone in some small, insufficient way.
