    Personally I take the view that any player in the team on merit should be held to the same standard as anybody else. If you're an academy graduate pressed into action before you're ready because of an injury crisis or whatever then that's obviously different, but if you're being picked ahead of...

    Garbage teams will often try hard but still not win. Because they’re, you know, garbage.

    Yep, exactly. I never went on for the effort or mentality thing but anyone who’s still peddling it even after seeing us win games recently by sheer force of will despite being utterly useless all game is either a wum or an idiot. It’s stressful enough following us at the moment without hearing...

    Grim that people still think like this. If you haven’t worked out by now that we’re genuinely not very good then I really don’t know what to say.

    It’s not really anything to do with the ‘derby’ aspect of it though is it. Games between teams who are 4th and 5th are likely to be better than those between those between 2nd and 17th, regardless of who’s involved. He’s just a wum, I have no time for them.

    You’re wrong. Wow, that was easy.

    You’re so weird. And not in a good way.

    I wonder how much of that is knowing that he won’t be there next year though. It’s a common issue with young loanees.

    Me neither. I did point out in my previous reply to you that only had to scroll up 5cm but I’m sure you live a very busy life so I was wrong to assume you could do that buddy.

    Everton summer 2022 transfer thread

    I’ve literally covered this above? We aren’t buying an upgrade, but what we can do is buy somebody who a) may be an upgrade in the long term and/or b) is likely to be worth more in future than we pay for them. If we were just buying a pretty good keeper for the short term I think there are...

    I have above. He’d likely cost £20m and would be a downgrade on what we have currently with no realistic prospect of improving. It would be like selling DCL and signing Chris wood. They aren’t bad players in their own right but they’re absolutely not the profile we need to be looking at.

    Everton summer 2022 transfer thread

    Pickfords a significantly better keeper in my opinion but he’s likely to be significantly better than anyone we signed to replace him so that isn’t my main issue. Pope’s 30, he would be depreciating in value from the moment he signed and so would just be a terrible signing for a club that’s had...

    Signing Pope would just be a continuation of the sort of awful business we’ve been doing in recent years. It’s literally the exact opposite of the type of thing we should be looking to do. So in many ways Nick, welcome home.

    2021/22 Demarai Gray

    Yeah I feel like both him and Bolasie both fall into the category of players who think them enjoying themselves on the pitch is more important than the team's result.

    I do understand what you're saying, and don't get me wrong I would absolutely not be confident of us getting something at Arsenal, but we have taken a point at Chelsea and at United already this season, and we beat Arsenal at home. I really hope we don't need anything there but from the way some...
