    January Transfer Thread 2020

    He has Arsenal all over him. Just not quite consistently good enough but could be excellent if a few other things fell into place in the team.

    Carlo Fantastico always make me get Club Tropicana by Wham get stuck in my head.

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    I agree with this. I fully agree that the final minutes were awful but for the most part that was a huge improvement on past performances. Ancelotti is not exempt from criticism but I for one am positive about what he has done and believe he has ways and methods and the ability to improve us...

    January Transfer Thread 2020

    Great! Buy him. It'll keep up the perennial derisory Turkish loan offers that are part and parcel of our transfer windows after we get rid of the drift wood. Good player. I'd prefer he'd go to Palace than us. I would have had any reservations about a player who in his prime left for lots of...

    How many players will leave this window ?

    Trick question. None of those who leave will deserve to be called players.

    I see that being almost the headline when he fluffs a chance on an open goal.

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    Referring to players as weak seems like quite an incendary and old fashioned way to refer to and belittle people. The mental resilience of these players, as well as maintaining individual and collective concentration is what is key in getting them to perform from the first kick off to the...

    GrandOldTeam TV What should Everton do about Jordan Pickford and is he a long term solution?

    He does, but obviously occasionally the thread falls apart at key moments and undoes the job it is supposed to do.

    The positivity thread

    Every game I see progression in the way we are playing under Ancelotti both collectively (and also in most cases individually). Keep this up and results will start to look after themselves. Time will tell if this is a flash in the pan, but I get the impression that he is working with the...

    The 2020 Squad Analysis Thread

    Category 1: Holgate, Digne, Mina, Bernard, Gomes, Richarlison, DCL, Moise Kean Category 2: Sidibe, Iwobi, Gbamin, Kenny, Pickford (though could slip into 5 very easily) Category 3: Lossl, Keane, Coleman, Delph, Davies (any decent offers for this category however and it's blammo, pull the...

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    I was pleased until the collapse. I'm trying my best to remember that - because other than that I want to forget all about yesterday it was so painful a final few minutes. Remove that from yesterday's game and it was a decent performance. Unfortunately we have no time machine, so we just need to...

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    I think criticising the manager is acceptable no matter what part of his tenure or his stature in the game. I am sure however that Ancelotti is making the same criticisms of himself and his decisions and better prepared for the next time he is in the same position. Having said all this, I...

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    I was very pleased too. That really is why it was such a kick in the teeth. 93 minutes of really good play, followed by a collective brain fart of epic proportions. Overall, I think Ancelotti's work is showing. I thought to myself that he was a calming influence and looks to be getting through...

    2019/20 Oumar Niasse

    It's true. But honestly at this minute he's just a waste of an opportunity for a younger player getting a chance and not much more for me now. Let him go. Anyone wants a loan, then I'd pay up the difference and wash my hands of him.

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    And most of those errors could be worked on too - but they keep coming up. Time after time. I don't see him here in 2 seasons time. I wouldn't be surprised if he went in summer.

    2019/20 Oumar Niasse

    Now that he has no other shop window opportunities, he should either find another club or be told he can stay at home for the rest of the season. I don't want him stinking up Finch Farm. If he is released, can he sign out of the transfer window for another club? I know he's done nothing wrong...

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    There's 11 players on the pitch who I would be happy to replace if a better replacement came along at the right price. Pickford is moving up the replacement priority list now. Can't believe he is so hapless at times. All his mistakes you could write off as silly if it was once in a blue moon...

    2019/20 Fabian Delph

    That mistake! Undid any good work he might have done. He is not good enough for us if we have any ambition. I would have no worries if he was to leave today. I don't understand what he is supposed to bring to the team at all.
