    ....being kind, Dave Hickson was a bit nuts. He managed a team I played for and in dark nights we’d train on concrete tennis courts with floodlights. 5 a side to finish, Dave joined in and he thought nothing of sliding on the concrete if he had a chance of scoring. Very quiet and humble but a...

    ....good enough to get us on the verge with games in hand. Other than City, none of the teams fighting for top4 are pulling up trees. It’ll be down to who can put a run together from here, it’ll be lots about belief. Other squads have more quality but we might just have an edge on...

    Match Thread West Bromwich Albion V Everton 4th March. 18:00.

    ....I suspect the Baggies are now in a situation where draws aren’t good enough. As you say, I’m sure he’ll keep it tight but somewhere in those tactics they’ll be keen to score a goal. Indeed, the first goal could be key to the match.

    ....most times in recent years when Burnley played Leicester i’d be wanting Leicester to win. Not tonight. It’s always a good benchmark when we want teams around the top to lose.

    ...I agree, but the assumption is Pickford will still be here next season. I really don’t want two mediocre keepers (3 if we include Virginia).

    Everton Summer transfers 2021

    ....possibly, but I hope we don’t sign Olsen. We shouldn’t make do with mediocracy, I‘d much prefer our scouting network to find some value out in the big world of football. i accept goalkeeping standards appear to have fallen, but surely there’s a talent out there that wouldn’t cost the earth...

    And it’s LIVE..!!

    ....I suppose it’s down to whether a live game impacts attendance. If it doesn’t then I see no issue, especially as clubs make so much money from TV companies.

    ....it’s a difficult one. He’s a professional, training every day so fitness shouldn’t be an issue although he might not be ‘match fit’ per se. He’s unlikely to get match fit unless he starts to impress because Ancelotti will only use him if he feels he will make a difference, a positive...

    2020/21 Josh King

    ....I can only think his lack of involvement is because he‘s been disappointing in training and not meeting expectations. I’m sure if he’d impressed we’d see him getting more game time to protect DCL.

    ....league doesn’t lie at this point & we’re right in there. I think it’s lots about attitude & it has to be more about catching Leicester than staying ahead of Chelsea & the Reds. Home games are key, every team left to play at home is below us in the standings. We‘ll need to win our home games.

    2020/21 Mason Holgate

    ....folk give me stick for saying he’s behind Coleman in my RB ranking, a view I hold consistently whether he plays well or not. I posted ahead of kick-off suggesting we’d have absolutely no threat on the right as Holgate rarely crosses the half-way line and Doucoure tends to run through central...

    ....made hard work of that, 90mins in third gear. Going for Sigurdsson as my MoM. Another fine assist, created more with 3 terrific free kicks into the box and was busy enough.

    ....certainly need another goal and I would hope we can create a bit more as they look vulnerable at the back. Stating the obvious, but the longer it remains 1-0 the more confident Soton will get.
