    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    I wouldn't be too sure. We've played two left backs and two right backs at various points this season at the same time.

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    Seen a couple of tentative links to Edouard at Celtic. Should be all over that kinda signing. Young french u21 international banging the goals in. For me, and I watch a lot of Scottish football, he is superior to his predecessor, Dembele, who has done well at Lyon and is attracting big interest...

    2019/20 Theo Walcott

    Can't even do the fundamental basics. Like the absolute minimum. A career absolutely stolen. Said it from the day we signed him, the epitome of all pace, zero ability. Got to go.

    Who needs to be first out the door?

    Literally every single one of them could go with the exception of Richarlison for ability and Coleman for attitude. A squad of absolute cowards. Sig, Walcott and Pickford the worst of the lot given the high wages, an absolute priority to get shot of them

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    This weird, non press thing he seems to employ really perplexes me. They go in ones or at best two's whilst the rest of the team stay static to their position, sitting deep mostly. It's completely ineffectual and makes it so easy to play out under zero pressure for the opposition. You only...

    2019/20 Anthony Gordon

    Did more in his 5/10 mins in the centre than Tom has done in months.

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    Turned round to my pal at that exact moment and said, what chance do we have when he's doing that. Such a moronic decision which sums his time up with us. Horrific decision maker, be it coming for crosses or distribution. Not to mention his palming everything straight back down the middle. Cut...

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    Well for one we set up 4-5-1, gomes dropping so deep in the first half to almost make it a 5-4-1. Or certainly a 4-1-4-1. I agree, he did change things slightly in the second half, but still the emphasis was on sitting relatively deep in defence and staying tight but with more of a threat in...

    2019/20 Alex Iwobi

    The amount of time him and Davies can't get their body in position to receive the obvious pass is frighteningly poor. Never seen two players having to stretch and miscontrol the ball so often. Iwobi particularly guilty of late.

    2019/20 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    Don't see how he can't be the subject of critic tonight. Was given zero service. Literally nothing for him to run on to or to attack. The way we set up nullified DCL, not spurs or a lack of ability on his behalf.

    2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    He's always been the same. This is why he was hounded out of spurs. He's a mediocre player. Many, including myself said it when he was signed, he's really just not very good. Goes hiding when going gets tough, doesn't influence the game, when playing left he cost us countless games due to...

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    He's not exempt from critic. He set us up ultra negatively. Didn't change much until the last 10 in terms of formation. Showed far too much respect to a poor spurs side in horrible form. The caveat being, he has been left a crock of absolute sh1t to work with.

    2019/20 Alex Iwobi

    Yeah, the change of shape really helped him. As with Sunday, Coleman was tucking in as a 3rd centre half effectively in attack and defence leaving iwobi with no option to play anything other than a kinda of right wing back role. When we changed to a more traditional shape with both full...

    2019/20 Tom Davies

    Read that he had a 58% pass success rate in the first half, next poorest was Krul with 70%. That is truly awful, particularly when most of his passes were simple 5/10 yard balls. He is like that far too frequently to ever be a player to be relied upon.

    2019/20 Michael Keane

    There is a proper player in this fella. Superb performance, following from a very, very good one Vs the RS... Long may it continue, as in this kinda form he is genuinely substantially better than Mina.
