    As much as we rate him, I don't think he'd bring in that much money. Better to keep him. Great player to have in the squad.

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    It would be typical for us to get it right next season and watch the other top 6 kick on as well. For us to get up the table we need to be almost flawless in our transfer activity this summer. Something that we've struggled with a lot.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    Yep, there's players who needed time to settle and there's also players who it just never happens for at a particular club. Just because it went that way for Fabinho doesn't mean it does for Kean. There's a big chance for him over the coming weeks and months now having had his time to settle in...

    He needs something. Whether that´s a big performance or a goal. Something to back up all the "He´ll come good" shouts on here. Literally 2/3 really good outings or 2/3 goals in the second half of the season would be fine.

    Start of the second half against Newcastle was probably his best minutes in a blue shirt. Let´s be honest, playing them at home is a great chance to bag your first goal.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    I wouldn´t write him off regardless. Players improve at different times and in different environments. It´s just shortsighted to think he´s going to get all the time in the world to develop here. In the summer, we´ll have to decide if we´re happy entering the new season with DCL and Kean as...

    2019/20 Lucas Digne

    Unfortunately, a huge problem is that in a lot of players´ threads you see fans blaming other members of the squad for sub par performances. The better players (like Digne) haven´t stepped up. It´s not about the assists or the goals, his general play has just been poor. Defensively he´s been a...

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    People on here act like he´s got years to settle himself in the team whilst playing the way he currently is, it´s mad. If things haven´t picked up by the summer, he´ll be very much in the shop window if the right offer comes along. I guarantee as well all the hopeful optimism surrounding him...

    Vlasic was far better than Kean whilst he was here.

    2019/20 Lucas Digne

    Come on, it´s not about working miracles. He just hasn´t been at the races all season.

    This was probably the start of our abysmal recruitment strategy. £14m for this bloke. What´s that in today´s transfer market, around £30m? Incredible.

    Match Thread Everton v Newcastle United (Tuesday 21 January 19:30)

    They were really poor yesterday. A proper smash and grab job. It´ll doubtlessly be a grind because we haven´t beaten a team comfortably all year but it´s one I´d expect us to win.

    We are all overjoyed by this comment. Our revenge for Bolasie.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    If the plan is to give 3 years to young players who are playing badly in the hope they come good then we need to come up with a new way of doing things. Possibly the biggest clubs in the world can spend £30m on someone to see them do nothing in 6 months, but even then there'd be huge question...

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    There's no doubt he was brought in to have an impact this season and that just hasn't happened. He has been no better than Sandro Ramirez. We can hope things turn round and they might, but in terms of impact, it couldn't have gone any worse so far.
