Player Valuation: £70m
A leader on the pitch would help.
I don't subscribe to the idea that the supporters are a factor. When we last won the league, the venom and outright hostility was constant. And I, amongst others here, were in the Enclosure, Top Balcony, Park End, Gwladys etc.. It didn't matter. Peter Reid, Trevor Steven got dogs abuse amongst others. It was appalling. And this is when we were going for the title!they're terrified and wondering how we'll Everton it.... Which transfers to the players.
Recruitment, recruitment, recruitment. Half a billion spent, it's negligent, appalling and embarrassing. Utd fans are having a go at Woodward. Their implosion is only matched by our incompetence. Imagine were we could be if we hadn't pissed that money against the wall.Time to start taking this ambition seriously and stop spending on quantity rather than quality.
I was there Tuesday and the crowd were singing carlo,s praises right until they scored the first, that’s when we went quiet because we’ve seen it all beforeBut you see it with the fans as well. 2-0 up against a Steve Bruce side with 5 minutes to play and the crowd isn't singing in the throes of victory, they're terrified and wondering how we'll Everton it.... Which transfers to the players.
It doesn’t matter, we signed Lossl in the summer, he can play for now. He isn’t the long term answer but that’s not what this is about.I'm all for that but who are we going to replace him with? He needs a rocket up his ass for sure. The serenity he must have knowing there isn't a realistic option to take his place.
ThisWe have to give Carlo the keys to the kingdom, give him the time to get his own squad together and implement his ideas. This is a massive opportunity to potentially take the next step, we have the leader in place but the troops need culling and some proper warriors brought in.
I can't imagine he would have been happy with that result.
Holgate has definitely staked a claim.I think Moshiri definitely likes the way it looks appointing someone with a reputation like Carlo's. So it kind of is vanity, but at the same time it is totally possible that he and Brands can also make us successful too.
He's going to be backed. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view regarding this window) it probably won't be until the summer. For me that's ok. Aside from DCL, Richarlison and probably Digne, nobody has staked a strong claim to hanging around here. Carlo gets 14 more matches to play around and see who works, who doesn't and what he needs to buy. Come summer we can reload and make a run at it hopefully right from the start of the season. But it will require patience. Now is not the moment to go all in.
