    Right, however that lack of touch or lack of speed of thought didn't hurt us today and didn't hurt him overall. We could have done a lot worse than getting him on a free. I just think, as usual, Evertonians are quick to jump on a player's back and in this case, as in many others, have gotten it wrong.

    Time will tell though.

    My cat is a better option than Vic.

    Being better than Victor is NOT a glowing statement.

    We can only judge players on how they play, today he was awful and each and every single person sitting near me at the ground agreed.

    Please, if you're going to respond, please do so accurately and with facts rather than what you THINK you saw out there.

    Lost possession EVERYTIME he touched the ball?

    Please don't bother commenting in the future unless you actually watched the match.

    Wow....I could have taken that exact quote and applied it to Fellaini, the Yak, and others when they first started playing for us.

    Like I said, a tiger can't change it's stripes, and Evertonians can't stop finding reasons to slate players, even if they have to make a few of 'em up.

    I didn't see the game today, are we saying he's a bit mcfadden? Better or worse?

    True. tbh I'd like to see more of Oviedo butMoyes seems them all in training.

    Is your cat available on a free ? The commentary could be boss. There goes Goats cat taking on Chelsea's dog of a defence.

    There's a [Poor language removed] joke in here somewhere but I'm going to swerve it.

    Nah. Woolly Blue, for some reason, thought he never kept possession at all. He did but it doesn't fit the narrative so we can't be having that.

    He has goals in him, he always gets in the box. Yes he was crap today. But he isnt a right mid. He will definitely come good.

    And Tinkerbell has hit that with a double overhead backflick and look at that celebration, shes licking her own anus.

    Did you see the bit where he fell over the ball instead of actually hitting it?

    That was the point 35,000 people lost faith.

    I said "well in, Naismith", a couple of times today, but I said "FFS Naismith" a lot more times. Some of what's been said here's a bit OTT, like.

    Seems to be the scapegoat this weekend, bit weird really. A number of players take time to settle into a team, Baines, Fellaini, Pienaar, Jags, Heitinga all off the top of my head were average to start with for us.

    He's no world beater, he's a decent addition to a squad that has no depth, and he will improve.

    Its just my rating system, players are either GASH, decent or SUPERB, today and the last few games, Naismith firmly rests in the GASH column, its up to him to remove himself.

    Easy big fella. I saw the game. Naismith was poor. My point was that our options were limited.

    I'm more than happy to give him time if, for no other reason than he's coming back from a serious injury. However, he was poor today.Not awful, just poor.

    For a free transfer he's alright.

    But he's not exactly ace is he?!

    I think Wooly was just quoting Goat there, actually. That wasn't his own opinion.
