    Just looks like they have a laugh in training. Popular bloke is Carlo. Happy days. We all like him. But our team is ...........woeful

    Who said anything about rather? If we are talking about preferences though, I'd rather he went and played elsewhere and maintained/improved his value if he wasn't going to contribute here, yes. Like I said, he clearly has some ability, and he...

    This model for Everton just isn’t working. Under Moyes we consistently punched above our weight. Meaning we were finishing above teams by spending less in the transfer market. That is the sign of a good transfer policy. Right now, we are...

    So you’d rather we just buy young players, loan them out and sell at a profit, without them actually helping our team whatsoever? Footballs a business,‘I’m not disputing that, but I honestly couldn’t care less about making a profit on a player...

    I'm not going to slaughter him either, but without wanting to keep repeating myself in different threads, let's not make out like we've set up for a long term project here. We've signed a lot of players at their peak on relatively short...

    neilsyd replied to the thread 2020/21 Richarlison.
    He’s a very good player who could play in the champions league. Probably will do next year. And he’ll play better surrounded by better players. He’s fairly unique in his ability to shoot with both feet and be so good in the air, whilst still...

    One of the best posts I've read on here. A lot of band wagon jumping goes on here, a few think he's a superstar and the ball starts rolling until massive swathes of supporters think he's a 100 million player. He's brazilian. He doesn't have the...

    We don't react well to a bit of adversity, whether it's through missing a player or going a goal down. Still question marks over whether we have a coherent system that we're trying to implement or not - with a fully fit team at the start of the...

    Decent player, but nothing like as good as Everton fans like to make out. In a top team that’s regularly challenging for domestic league and CL trophies he’d be a rotation option and no more. But, because of the dearth of quality at the club a...

    neilsyd replied to the thread 2020/21 Michael Keane.
    Exactly this. And just because he doesn't make a calamitous error for a goal, it doesn't mean he couldn't have done any better with it. His positional play and reading of the game is poor. Do you ever see him take the initiative by making a...

    There's more to being a good centre half than just not being directly responsible for a goal though. I just don't think he's very good, and I think his limitations cause us a problem. I don't think he's decisive enough, I don't think he takes...

    If he’d have the full backs on the bench, or even started them, sparing Davies and iwobi would have given us more options in other areas of the pitch. I’n aware they’re low down on quality but the formation changes are then there. Davies actually...

    neilsyd replied to the thread 2020/21 Carlo Ancelotti.
    I’m with you on this one. I really don’t see much change in our style of play except them trying to play out more from the back, goal kicks etc, which actually really annoys me. But it does seem to be popular these days. As I’ve previously said...

    My mate raised a good point (he's a Leeds fan) about how Bielsa had them playing the exact way he wanted within weeks. Weeks. Not months. Obviously they ultimately ran out of gas in his first season but they were always bound to be better for...
