    Marcel Brands

    Seems like you´re talking about at the time but I think it´s important to live in the here and now where we´ve just had our worst season for 15 years. Of all those players you mentioned up there none had a good season, which equates to a poor transfer window. A repeat of that this summer will...

    I think one of the biggest factors about Goodison is our own players know they can´t get away with half arsed performances. Our fans would be all over them. Take that away and do you really think this bunch would be motivated enough to get themselves up for games?

    2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    Barkley would be the best midfielder at the club if he was still here. As it happens, he might not even make Chelsea's bench at times next season. Puts into perspective how big the challenge is for us to compete towards the top of the league.

    2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    If we enter next season with Bernard or Iwobi as our number 10 then we might as well write the campaign off before a ball is kicked. You could give either of them a 3 month run in that position only to confirm that neither has what it takes.

    2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    But he was capable of scoring goals last season which is more than can be said for a lot of our team. I don't want him here but that goes for so many of the first team squad. If it came down to a choice of who I´d want bringing off the bench when we need a goal in the last 10 minutes I´d give...

    2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    Granted he's had an awful season and we'd all like to see him gone but he is capable of getting 10+ goals, or at least he was. I think he has more to offer than Iwobi, Davies and Bernard, which isn't saying much, but I'd prioritise making sure they're not on the field before him. Unfortunately...

    Watched an old Everton match yesterday, I hope this squad did too.

    They were crap but still had the likes of Gerrard and Suarez in the team. We had Gueye on the wing...

    2019/20 Andre Gomes

    It was definitely in the Hibbert first half of the cup final hall of shame.

    2019/20 Andre Gomes

    His Everton career has been inconsistent at best. In his position you need someone you can rely on to give you a 7/10 performance every week. Doesn´t look like he´s capable of it, which is a shame because there´s obviously a lot of ability there.

    2019/20 Alex Iwobi

    Sigurdsson did score 14 goals the season before though. I can´t see Iwobi scoring 14 goals in his entire Everton career.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    Unfortunately, I think the main people who did were Silva and Brands. Spending £30m on a striker when we so desperately needed one suggests he was the man they were looking to in the immediate future. I´d be amazed and worried in equal measure if they bought Kean on his potential for 3 years...

    2019/20 Cenk Tosun

    If we managed to get a decent midfield it´d be a shame to waste it on this fella. Currently averaging 1 goal every 5 games in England. I´d even take that for a striker who´s got other attributes going for him but Tosun hasn´t.

    2019/20 Cenk Tosun

    Poor anticipation/too slow to get many chances and very limited on the ball. I can see him getting a few games though next season. No one is going to pay the kind of wages he wants.

    2019/20 Jean-Philippe Gbamin

    I think we're at the point with this signing where we shouldn't expect anything at all. Reminds me of Rodrigo in 2002.

    2019/20 Alex Iwobi

    If they´re affected by comments on social media then they need to shipping off down the league to where they belong. Every single team above us in is no different, in fact it´s probably so much worse if you play for Chelsea etc. Whatever lack of affection Ross Barkley was shown at Everton, he is...

    Marcel Brands

    I think both squads were and are rancid. You list those players in bold but I can give you similar players stealing a living from this club right now: Davies, Sigurdsson, Iwobi, Walcott and Delph. Talent wise you can make an argument for them being better but in terms of hunger and wanting to do...

    Marcel Brands

    I´m not even convinced the squad is better than the one in 17/18. They finished lower in the league for starters. Probably the biggest problem for us is how much other teams have improved since then whilst we have stood still. In terms of signings, last summer was absolutely rotten. Another...

    The players the squad needs to be built around haven´t even been bought yet. Of the ones you´ve listed there, I think only Digne, Richarlison and Holgate would be starting regularly for a Champions League team.

    2019/20 Alex Iwobi

    lol Don´t we have a Tory majority government supported by an overwhelmingly right wing press? Anyway, when it comes to Iwobi and people on this forum I genuinely do think the grief he gets is because he was a poor player before he arrived here and he´s probably got even worse now.

    Arteta

    Been some blips along the way but also beaten Liverpool, City, Chelsea and Wolves. You can sense he´s got a real desire to prove himself over the coming years but unfortunately for him I doubt he´ll have the money to challenge all the way to the top.
