    2020/21 Yerry Mina

    Think it was one of those games where when a few things go wrong, it can be tough to break the trend. A surprisingly bad game from the defense but especially Mina. The block at the end was massive, though, that was going straight to the bottom corner in mind...

    2020/21 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    Great goal tonight. I would love to see more of that variety from him. He is the best threat in the league with his head, but the one missing thing are strikes from outside of the six yard box. Very glad we have King to bring in, but we will very much miss his physicality up top if he's out for...

    2020/21 Abdoulaye Doucouré

    His energy is something else. Glue player and such an important signing. He'll always be a bit clumsy on the ball, but at the same time I really trust him when he gets it in tight areas. He makes really good decisions both on and off the ball, a lot of that obviously goes unnoticed.

    2020/21 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    This season has been an enormous response from. He still has moments of absolute dog turd that make me want him gone so badly, but honestly we would have been worse off without him. James is injury prone and nobody else in the club is capable of doing what Gylfi did tonight. Obviously should be...

    2020/21 Tom Davies

    Fair credit to Tom for the last two games, especially when the club so badly needed those performances and with most of the fan base having written him off. Absolutely monster performances. Bit weird describing it that way considering what he's asked to do in that role is not anything...

    Sounds to me like James won't be ready, I think I'd go for the following for the lineup tomorrow: Olsen Godfrey Mina Keane Digne Davies Doucoure Iwobi Gylfi Rich DCL

    If James is fit there is no excuse for not bring him on ASAP - we need some possession to take the pressure off

    2020/21 Alex Iwobi

    Very curious to see what Carlo decides to do with Godfrey and Digne because I think the biggest knock-on effect is on Iwobi. Hopefully the Newcastle game was an aberration for a lot of players and Digne, Iwobi and others will kick on. It's a much better use of our players with Digne at LB, Richy...

    Everton Summer transfers 2021

    Love that everyone is right on to this already :hayee: for me it’s: RB > GK > RW > DM > AM > ST A lot depends on outs. Need a quality RB no matter what. I’d rather sell Pickford and keep Olsen as backup for our new GK, but either way it should be a starting caliber player. RW would ideally be...

    2020/21 Marcel Brands

    I have my share of criticisms for Brands, but genuinely do not understand how you can let your DOF who sits on your board be on less than six months contract. How is he supposed to do his job correctly? If there is no confidence and you want to see him gone, surely you would say an early goodbye...

    Everton January transfer window 2021

    You won't convince me that there aren't loans out there to be had for players who would want to play in the PL under Carlo. Unbelievable that we would leave things so thin with such a crucial part of the season coming up. It's clear that clubs are being cautious with money right now and nobody...

    Confirmed Signing Josh King

    It won't be a loan because his contract runs out this summer. There is no incentive for a promotion chasing team to loan out a player; it's a different situation than Walcott. For wages people are wildly speculating here based on some previous reporting that I doubt was even true. His only...
