    The recently-retired Leighton Baines is younger than this lad, FFS lol

    2019/20 Leighton Baines.

    I agree totally in that he clearly prefers to be out of the limelight, however I wouldn't confuse that with not having ambition. I can't imagine a lad who puts himself through almost 20 years of professional football isn't hugely competitive, even if personality-wise it doesn't show on the surface.

    2019/20 Leighton Baines.

    Says much about the man that when Man U (and Moyes) came calling in the summer of 2013 he seemingly made absolutely zero fuss about it, no agitation. At that stage he was 28 years of age, going on 29, and within himself he must have known that moving to United would have been his best chance of...

    2019/20 Leighton Baines.

    Probably the saddest thing is that a player who has spent thirteen years at our club bows out without a medal. Deserved so much more, not just at Everton but also at a national level. Along with several others he was a scapegoat for England's Brazil 2014 World Cup disaster, and, Ashley Cole...

    Would rather Watford go down, myself. Then they re-hire Marco Silva, then they go down to League One for the 2021/22 season.

    Best player since the restart

    Overall, Michael Keane has easily been our most consistent performer. Honorable mention too to Lucas Digne, though the peno he gave away v Wolves was a bit silly. Gordon has been promising, in his brief stints on the pitch. Richy has been OK-ish which is below his normal high standards...

    2019/20 Jarrad Branthwaite

    This kid's a baller. Him and Holgate could be our CB pairing for the next decade.

    Reasons to be positive about this season...

    * Carlo Ancelotti. * Cuco Martina and Oumar Niasse are not at Everton. Beyond that, I'm struggling

    This. We're kidding ourselves if we think he'll put up with this level of commitment from our bunch of s***bags for four years.

    Honestly, this last month has been the worst top-level football I've ever seen in my life. I'd take Allardyce's January 2018 Everton over this any day of the week.
