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

    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 finishing below teams we spend considerably more than. The...

    2020/21 Moise Kean

    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 that has contributed zero to the whole reason I...

    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 providing defensive duties. Mane is similar in a way...

    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 crucial interception? We concede a lot of chances from...

    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 did a half decent job coming on against Fulham to...

    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, it’s not so much the results, I’d happily take a...

    2020/21 Allan

    One of the few players in our team who looks capable of retaining a football. He doesnt panic when he gets the ball. If a pass isn't on, he'll turn the other way and look up and seems to play passes at the right time. There's too much chat from our fans about "shielding the back four" and not...

    reality check

    So a reality check is required for us to expect a team to go from 12th, to 6th with a world renowned manager, no doubt in the top 5 highest paid managers in the world (I think Im right saying this?). We signed four players in the summer, one in particular, at world class level, and we need a...

    reality check

    People are frustrated Matty. The reasons are we haven’t won a trophy for 25 years. We still cling on to parts of our history that were a big club with periods of success but we all know we need to get in the mix soon with the top clubs competing in Europe. We’ve had huge investment in the last 5...

    2020/21 Carlo Ancelotti

    Because you are using present tense and there’s nothing he is doing right now to convince me he is. Mourinho is the most trophy laden manager of the last ten years but even he’s been sacked. Managers have their time at clubs and motivations for each job. Ancelotti won trophies many years ago and...

    2020/21 Carlo Ancelotti

    The fixture pile up is the same for everyone and has happened ever since I can remember. How is that an excuse? And yes his wages are relevant. If I’m paying someone more than the last guy, I’d expect better in my business. So how do you not see that? I’m not going to get into an argument with...

    2020/21 Carlo Ancelotti

    I’m sure you’ll agree though, you haven’t actually pointed anything out. He’s won 13 league games out of 30. It’s hardly sparkling. “Undoubtedly a great manager” is just another quote with no substance.

    2020/21 Carlo Ancelotti

    He’s also had 11 million quid, making him in the top five (guess but I’m probably right) highest paid managers in the world. And you’ve just threw a Christmas fixture pile up on your excuses. Jesus......
