    2018/19 Yerry Mina

    Im very concerned about his injury record. Im hoping hes just been unlucky, but have my doubts. Till hes had a run in the side, hes an unknown quantity.

    2019/20 - Minimum Requirement

    All depends on our transfer business surely, im happy with steady improvement, closing the gap or even making top six, and then doing the same to the champions league the next year

    2018/19 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    Was poor today, a couple of times he took to many touches or laid it off when i would have liked him to hit it first time and test the keeper. Didnt look like he wanted a goal, which is a concern.

    Match Thread Crystal Palace v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Unfortunately, its clearly not going to be DCL's day. Needs subbing, time for walcott or tosun upfront.

    Went for Bernard, i realise he didnt score or assist as much as others but his movement, touch and flicks and passes had united all over the shop.

    The Old Guard

    To me the old guard looked tired, i cant help but think the keane should have started and we need more options for the other three so they can be rested once in a while. That was part of the problem today

    2018/19 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    Needed to test the keeper today, our only midfielder with a long shot on him, needed to use it to scare the keeper. Was very poor today, however we didnt get the ball near him often enough today, the gana gomes axis seemed to prefer to pass to Fulham.

    Match Thread Fulham v Everton; Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Im pro silva, but his subs are beginning to grate. We clearly weren't improving and needed a change at least 10 mins before it happened.

    Wheres gylfi today? Seems non existant, need him to start demanding the ball and influencing the game or we will lose this.

    Fantastic game, Bernard motm. Jags ran him close but got caught out a few times at the back.

    Do we need a new penalty taker?

    Another vote for Digne, he always looks confident and composed at dead balls so is worth a go. Gylfi didnt look confident at all today and his pen reflected that.

    Easily Forgotten Everton Players

    Senderos, one of a couple of 'emergency' loans we made under Moyes to cover defensive injuries, same as Anthony Gardener, and short term contract Lucas Neill.

    2018/19 Yerry Mina

    He needs more time in a settled team before i judge him too harshly. He probably doest speak a word of English, doesnt have a understanding with his centreback partner due to lack of game time together, probably needs a leader alongside him.

    Youth - When are we going to use them?

    Bloated squad means less places in the match day team for the younger players. In Moyes time we had a small core bulked with youth. The bench regularly had kids on it, however only the special ones got a game regardless.

    2018/19 Jordan Pickford

    Unfortunately his weaknesses out weigh his strengths. I feel i have seen enough to say we would be better with someone else, a consistent gk who conmands his box would improve us loads.
