Everton in pre-season


Player Valuation: £70m
Towards the end of today’s video I think Branthwaite is there talking to Brands? On the captions it has Branthwaite saying “I’m going!” - to which Brands replied “I’m sorry”, end of caption conversation and Brands leaves the gym!

Wonder what that’s all about?

What captions?

What captions?
The one version I saw had “auto captions”, they were quite interesting - comments from players, the guys doing the tests etc, then the towards the end the exchange between Brands and who I thought was Branthwaite!

Here you go! Apologies for the quality of the pictures, screen shots of the Facebook version of the video!

No, had a great start, hit a rough patch and lost his place then got back in and had season ended by injury.
All good learning experiences for an 18 year old

I read somewhere that he only performed when next to a certain partner. I can't remember the names of his CB partners at Blackburn, though. Typical, I know...

Didn't Branthewaite stink the gaff out whilst on loan at Blackburn? NEA.

Not really, he was very mixed, started really well then struggled for a bit before coming back into a bit of form.

Blackburn was a bit of a mess at the time.

He did exactly as well as you would expect a kid with about 20 games in his career under his belt to do in the Championship.
