    2020/21 James Rodriguez

    The "funny" thing is you CONSTANTLY see the opposition stretching as far as they can and they are always about 6" away from the ball. It's like he knows exactly how hard and far to hit the ball regardless of the opposition.

    Oh, someone like Dalot? He would have been PERFECT for us this year. Could play both RB/LB and also RW. So aggravated by Utd ffs...

    2020/21 Lucas Digne

    I don't think anyone is saying he's anywhere near the same level, just that we HAVE a LB as cover. Niels is promising but just unbelievably raw. He played well in a couple matches and played crap when the guy who had the ball most of the time refused to even look his direction. Somenoe else...

    2020/21 Lucas Digne

    I guess the one possible good thing here is that we have Niels as an actual backup instead of nothing for Coleman? Talk about being thrown right into the fray tho...

    Huh, don't know why but always thought the staff was counted separately.

    Everton January transfer window 2021

    How is that even possible? That is more than 30 players on £100k/week.

    Everton January transfer window 2021

    Dele Alli is basically Jesse Lingard of London. He doesn't care about football anymore.

    2020/21 James Rodriguez

    Right, the idea that any ball that leads to an assist is asinine just the same that any pass that leads to a goal should be called/given as an assist. Intent really matters, or at least it should.

    2020/21 James Rodriguez

    I think the whole thing should be called "meaningful contribution" instead of even assists or "pre-assists". Bolasie got an assist because he miscontrolled a long ball to him, Lukaku grabbed it and ran 50 yards to score a great goal. Did Bolasie really do anything of note? No. Like @Saint...

    Transfer Rumour ISCO

    I offense to you but what the ever loving lol? Our FIRST team doesn't seem to have a 'fitness schedule' much less anyone possibly coming in? This is a player coming from one of the worlds TOP teams. What makes you think THEY don't have him on a fitness schedule?

    Managers have blindspots to both good players and bad players. It's undoubted. Moyes had this to Neville when he was CLEARLY past it. Carlo, for whatever reason and I cannot fathom what it is, seems to have this with Sigurdsson. I have said this for ages, I don't give one care in the world...

    2020/21 Theo Walcott

    I hate how we have soooo many players who just don't care about Everton one iota. They don't care if we win or lose, they don't care if they put in 70% effort. They have a contract, so what?

    Everton January transfer window 2021

    Spurs are a self sustaining club that don't spend money. Their chairman doesn't like to spend money. Their owner doesn't like to spend money. They also are, as you see there, MASSIVELY reliant on match day revenue. Same with Utd and Liverpool. Chelsea were an anomaly that had a TON of room...

    tbf to Falcao his career was ruined by the time he came over

    2020/21 Marcel Brands

    If he goes he goes. Let Carlo call the shots for the winter window. Brands working hard for 2 weeks a year isn't exactly making me fear for him leaving. It's complete amateur hour for a person to come out and say they don't have any interest in doing their job one out of two times a year and...

    2020/21 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    I don't know why but I honestly can't see City interested in him at all. I think they are looking at the Lautaro Martinez and Haaland's, not DCL.

    2020/21 James Rodriguez

    Thought his passing was the worst I've seen of his today, but it was still considerably better than just about every other player on the pitch. Says a lot when you a bit disappointed in a player giving a 7.5 performance lol

    It doesn't seem like there is much of an emphasis on fitness as there was under Moyes. be a bit difficult to hang on at the end of a match if you are gassed.

    Ah, fair shouts. Would have had him in there over Godfrey tho.

    2020/21 Carlo Ancelotti

    I wonder what the logic was in not playing Holgate today. If he played(admittedly poorly) against Utd he should have been fit enough to play today and he's probably our best defender.
