    Marcel Brands

    Some people don’t even think he does that. I was criticising him in the Mina thread because we didn’t sell last summer. We can’t let the few valuable players we have run their contracts down or sell with only 12 months left. That, to me, seemed like a pretty basic strategy for a director of...

    2021/22 Seamus Coleman

    I remember the Stoke game and him getting rinsed. I thought he decided he was done, seen him talking about it a few times. Either way, the player or club needs standards and if you drop below them are replaced.

    Did the same with Jagielka, allowed a good servant to soldier on as a shell of a player until they start to ruin their previous good service. You get the odd player like Gary Neville who has standards and holds their hands up. If the player doesn’t do it though, the club has to have standards...

    Who’s the laddie behind DBB? Looks absolutely raging, hope he gave them a piece of his mind!

    2021/22 The Everton Board Thread

    Seeing the faces of DBB, Bill and Brands on the tv was a grim reminder that they’re making decisions. Marcel Brands had the nerve to shake his head at what he was watching - mate, this is on you, you’ve assembled that shower, you should be shaking your head at yourself.

    Sack him or not

    We need stability, we’re not doing anything the next season or two. I’m fine with needing a big rebuild and time and being a crap team for a few seasons in the lower half of the league. Is he the man to do the rebuild though, do I trust him to bring in the right players, do I want the rebuild...

    Was he though? Who’s he back up to? We don’t have anyone else who I can think would start ahead of him.

    Just waiting for the summer until he can jump ship.

    2021/22 Ben Godfrey

    This is it eh? So so much to learn - you can get away with a young centre back if it’s in a functional team, a midfield that can actually protect the back four, for a start. In this Everton team you’re constantly being put in situations where you’re having to make decisions, being asked...

    Match Thread Everton v Liverpool, Wednesday 1st December 20:15

    Looked to me like he was a fault for the first two. I didn’t say he didn’t do anything well. He’s miles off at the moment. So many rough edges to smooth, needs to learn the basics of defending, positioning and dealing with movement in the box to attack the ball. In a solid team that functioned...

    Mate, Godfrey was poor, making school boy errors that folk are ignoring because he puts in a few Hollywood tackles and has a bit of pace. He’s a massive part of our defensive problem. The most solid I can remember is looking in recent years was when we had Zouna and Keane playing regularly...

    This is such a bizarre take man. He’s carried the rest of the back line? He was massively at fault for the second, going into the Pool final third, winning the ball and immediately turning it over for the goal. Looked like he was missing for the first. He’s put in a few good challenges but “led...

    I would be open mouthed at that pathetic effort from Allan tbf.

    This is as up for it as they get, won’t be a bigger game. You’re right, terrifying thinking about this lot fighting for anything.

    2021/22 Lucas Digne

    Just think he’s given up, could be playing for a team playing in the champions league, surrounded by [Poor language removed], the promised project never materialised, defensive manager doesn’t play to his strengths. He’s disillusioned and probably got an eye on a move come the summer.
