    Who is the worst Everton player you have seen in the Premier League era?

    Weirdly so, yes. Gallows humour, perhaps.

    Who is the worst Everton player you have seen in the Premier League era?

    How on Earth has this list made me smile? Well done sir. Hard to disagree.

    Who is the worst Everton player you have seen in the Premier League era?

    This post stuck in my head at the time. Today I have had a row with Mrs. Tree, a row with a complete stranger and tested positive for Covid... Please complete my day by naming 30 prem-era Everton players worse than Iwobi. Frankly whether you convince me or not I will be happier either way!

    Do not want. Besides the fact he's a lazy moneygrabber, we need a RB and a CM far, far more than a wide attacker.

    Match Thread Brentford v Everton. Sun 28th November. 2pm

    They get paid mind-boggling sums. They are supposedly some of the very best players on the planet but surely PART of that definition should be a professional, competitive mindset - part of THAT mindset should include the attitude that Every. Game. Matters Keane, to my amateur observation...

    Match Thread Brentford v Everton. Sun 28th November. 2pm

    The grock Toney is going to wipe the floor with Michael Keane. It's inevitable. Keane always seems to go to pieces in televised games, and Toney's strengths match up perfectly against Keane's weaknesses.

    How long has Rafael got left?

    We're shocking at selling players because we have (mostly) bought poor quality players, offered them unsustainable wages and paid inflated fees for them. The very few good ones we've bought we don't WANT to sell, if we can help it. Either way the rogue's gallery of Delph, Gbamin, Gomes, Iwobi...

    How long has Rafael got left?

    Yep, all true. But the fact remains that most of it needs to happen and until it does there is no point chopping and changing managers.

    I am NOT advocating for Rondon to be picked, but when on Earth has Tosun ever "put in a shift" for us??!

    How long has Rafael got left?

    100% agree. Firing the manager at this point achieves nothing. The squad still has too much dross on too much money, and we cannot spend much in Jan. Changing manager changes none of those things. Sell Gomes, Gbamin or Tosun and we create a little breathing space. Sell Siggy, Mina, Keane or...

    Who is the worst Everton player you have seen in the Premier League era?

    Agree with all of these, with a couple of caveats: Schneiderlin's first five months ( he arrived in a January window, IIRC ) were very good. Robles never got better; our expectations just dropped closer to his level. Alcaraz was utter bilge. Turned like a barge, played like he had two barges...

    One question, and ONLY one? "Pineapple on pizza: Yes or No?"

    Who is the worst Everton player you have seen in the Premier League era?

    I'd take Madar or Bakayoko in their time as Everton players over Tosun or Rondon.

    Alcaraz McGeady Nyarko

    This would make an excellent thread. We could get the Samaritans to sponsor it.

    Terrifying, depressing and also sadly obvious.

    Everton Jan 2022 transfer thread

    Widely reported at the time we paid a fee. Irrespective of that, he's clearly a better player than Rondon or Tosun. We should have handled him better and extended his contract.

    Everton Jan 2022 transfer thread

    Townsend is an upgrade on Bernard. Gray is an upgrade on Bernard. Gordon is an upgrade on Bernard. Gray playing at 10 is an upgrade on Gylfi. Rondon and Tosun can jump into the nearest volcano for all I care, they're both terrible. James was never going to stay the moment Ancelotti left so...

    Everton Jan 2022 transfer thread

    Any significant transfer activity in this upcoming window (and by significant, I mean the type that might impact the first team squad) is surely going to be entirely dependent on the extent to which the payroll has been trimmed by shifting large volumes of dead wood in the summer. Did the...
