    reality check

    I’m 32. On top form I think Baines and Digne are equally top class. On top form I think Richarlison and James are much better than Pienaar at peak. DCL isn’t as good as Lukaku yet yeah but a team with James, Digne, Richarlison, Allan and DCL this season should be doing better

    It feels a bit like he has spent the year experimenting. That was fine at end of last season once we weren’t getting Europe and had no danger of relegation but we got 0 points against Southampton, Newcastle, a poor Man U and Leeds because of these experiments in a season where we need progress

    reality check

    We have big gaps but Digne, Richarlison, DCL, James and Allan are about as good as I’ve seen turn out for us in my lifetime and Keane, Holgate, Coleman and Doucoure would get in most of our teams

    I don’t think he’s reacted very well to injuries and suspensions which is not entirely his fault due to squad depth but: Why is Gordon being left out completely? Why was flat footed right footer midfielder Iwobi played at left wing back? Where was Nkounkou today? I can’t get my head around...

    I’d have brought him on over Gomes or Bernard to try and make something happen today

    Not blaming him whatsoever today. Playing a flat footed right footer at left wing back is a weird weird call

    reality check

    The frustration is that this is the best team we’ve had in years and we have a world class manager and if we don’t have a good season we will likely lose Richarlison and possibly DCL and then be somewhat back to square one. In truth, we’ve won every game where we’ve had our first team out and...

    Then we are doomed lol How close this’ll be depends on whether Bamford thinks he’s this season DCL or two years ago DCL, which seems to change from game to game!

    Match Thread Everton v Leeds United - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Surely this is the least ‘Everton that’ season we’ve had since first year Martinez? The games we lost were because we were without Richarlison, had an unfit James and Digne out for Newcastle too, I don’t think I had a good feeling going into those games at all. We’ve won literally every other...

    The stats actually do lie, if they are made up (ie. lies). James is boss and Sigurdsson is ineffective. Everton with James and Richy both playing and Sigurdsson not playing are the best we’ve been in donkeys.

    2020/21 Lucas Digne

    Hate this mentality. Right now we have about 8 players in different positions who are good enough to qualify for champions league. Why would we sell the two best ones to maybe get lucky and sign new players that might be good or might one day be really good!?

    2020/21 James Rodriguez

    There was a ball he played to Digne in one of the earlier season games which Digne couldn’t control unfortunately which went through a gap that just wasn’t there. Two players threw themselves across this non existent gap and still the ball went through. He is on another planet with passing...

    Ffs intercept more you lazy get!

    2020/21 Niels Nkounkou

    I think he’ll be good mate but Digne is literally world class! He is the starting left back for the current world champions!

    Huge miss this, hope he’s back soon!

    I think a nice comparison is David Silva. He’s just gone to Real Sociedad who are currently TOP of La Liga. I read the other day he only has 2 assists and 1 goal but the point is he’s making them tick even if he’s not putting the ball in the net himself or assisting.

    Shot conversion

    I think it is a nice healthy combo of all three. I think the main point is that Dom’s only job now when we’re attacking is to be in the box getting on the end of things whereas too often before we’d see him fighting it out down the channels. His hold up play is exceptional but once we’re on an...

    Shot conversion

    Yep and those better chances seem to be falling to DCL who is in the form of his life! James and Digne’s delivery have been magical at times this season, no way Doucoure was missing that third goal at Fulham for example.

    2020/21 James Rodriguez

    Keown is such an awful commentator, all he does is talk about what just happened as if he has an incredible insight. He’s the kind of commentator who watches a full back overlap and says ‘he’s really looking to overlap at every opportunity now’ even though it’s an hour into the match and that’s...
