    2019/20 Anthony Gordon

    I agree with your description of Davies. I too would love him to succeed and yes, I have always enjoyed seeing a home grown player develop. But Davies seriously lacks pace which will hold him back for sure. Worryingly I also think he loses concentration quite often during the game. Let’s hope...

    2019/20 Fabian Delph

    No chance he’s going to stay fit for 9 games. 3 maximum then his hammy goes.

    2019/20 Morgan Schneiderlin

    Six months? His first six games more like. The bloke is a coward. No question.

    Neville Southall and other goalkeepers

    It’s 50 years to ago today that the great Gordon Banks pulled off that wonder save from Pele’s header in the Mexico World Cup. Looking back on a montage of Neville’s saves before the last home match at Goodison in March, there were some as good if not better than that save. For a big guy, Nev...

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    Just can’t see it. Pickford will be our goalkeeper for the foreseeable.

    Homepage Article Lukaku: “I owe Everton so much”

    He was poor in the air. Watching highlights of Royle and Gray in the Winslow.....proper brilliant in the air....

    Homepage Article Lukaku: “I owe Everton so much”

    But wasn’t it great to see his rubbish performance on his return to Goodison? Oh how I laughed!

    Homepage Article Lukaku: “I owe Everton so much”

    I remember sat in my seat at one game at Goodison, seething about Lukaku. It was against Hull City. His body language was poor, he appeared to be complaining to his colleagues at every missed placed pass, and his first touch and general play in that particular match was dire. He’d also...

    2019/20 Theo Walcott

    Remember at school the lad who was dead keen to join in, but was always picked last and could never kick, trap or kick a ball properly? Step forward Theo Walcott.

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    I actually think he’s a natural keeper. Very talented and although I’ve never seen him in training, I bet he’d make a decent outfield player too. He’s been inconsistent this season with his kicking, but when he’s on his game the range and accuracy of his kicking is second to none. His...

    2019/20 Michael Keane

    Agreed. Tammy Abrahams easily brushed him aside also.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    Got a feeling Carlo will be saying to Moise that he’s going to be starting the next 10 games. Surely this is the way forward for this lad now.

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    Yep, totally agree. Being the type of bloke he is,I’d place a little bet on it that he already knows. He’s allegedly watched Everton’s last 4 matches. He needn’t have watched 4......the last one made it abundantly clear.

    Match Thread Everton v Burnley - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Two big bullies up front for Burnley worries me a bit. Can Holgate, and or Mina/Keane handle them? Not so sure.

    2019/20 Tom Davies

    Sadly, despite my fondness for a home grown player being in our first team, I don’t thing he’s good enough. The glaringly obvious thing for me is his alarming lack of pace. Lack of pace will always hold a player back unless they posses incredible nous and awareness. Tom sometimes struggles to...
