    TBH I don't even comment on him as I wrote him off before he arrived. Shocking call from Beni to bring him to us.

    just saw this mate.. I’m truly sorry for your loss. It’s heartbreaking to hear and read your experience… I hope you’re doing ok.. I can imagine it hasn’t got any easier

    Benitez was very brave coming to Everton.. very brave… not as brave as this post however!

    For me it’s simple. If you want the manager to think of you and pick you.. train with him every day and show him what you got.. and especially show him you will listen and learn from him.

    Was about to say this myself.. not hung up on any of our player at the moment, like losing Lukaku was impossible to replace.. so yeah.. just get a decent fee and we should be ok

    Decent article about Mallon and his battle back from a stress fracture.. as said not great thing for a youngster to have to sit out and deal with.. not sure how he’ll progress but always been impressed with him.. his ability and his stature.. seems quick enough, strong and big enough, and...

    Love Doucs in the soon as he passes the ball he stops and holds his breath like a fan waiting to see what happens next.. Beautiful goal! Brilliant from Gray to win it.. That turn away from the tackle from Doucoure can't be underestimated .. And not everyday De Gea doesnt react

    Tbh I feel Everton gets more media profiling than we deserve at times. We have done nothing of note since 1995…

    Ya true… not very high expectations to have a release clause that low I reckon.

    2021/22 Demarai Gray

    I find it astonishing that a lad with clearly all the tools to be a top top premiership player has not had sustained success .. he just seems the type of player every team wants and every manager would appreciate..even if he has a dry spell his speed and technique will make him invaluable...

    To be fair @TheBigIguana was one of the first to start calling out our play last season when it became apparent we were becoming negative and that this is sustainable.. but that fall was off a cliff, not piecemeal. I didn’t get to watch the game, but what I have liked this season is that the...

    that’s what the best teams do, and why we didn’t finish top 6 last season… those losses to the worst teams in the league last year stuck in the throat .. it wasn’t just that we lost we weren’t even competing. Yes the tough games are coming, but winning the games you should makes them far less...
