Don't forget to include the caller 'Patrick' who they get on after every game who says we were brilliant in every game.

Don't remember him being on last night. Although there was an old geezer from Birkenhead ('Geoff' I think) who said this squad was the "worst ever" (so, worse than 50/51, 93/94, 97/98 or 2000/01?) and that Everton are a stepping stone for the highly-decorated 60 year old Carlo Ancelotti onto "better things"....

Probably needs to lay off the bargain booze vodka and synthetic hash.

On topic though, I likes what I sees. Hopefully he'll be confident in time for the return of the Park end booboys.

We don't have a genuine left back in the u23s and Baines will probably last one more season so hopefully he starts in the u23s and if he is of sufficient quality will be the back up left back by the end of the season. I think its an excellent signing just hope hes good enough.

The graveyard of young talent. Not sure if we want him to progress he should be let anywhere near there tbh.

Calvert-Lewin did half a season so did Holgate it's just if they stay too long. There needs to be a plan if his path to first team is blocked needs to go out on loan. 1 year max at that level before they start going backwards.

Yeah that's always the worry when we sign these kids who are touted as the next big thing, I remember being excited about David Hennan lol

Remember signing a few young players for reasonable money (one defender for about £5 million springs to mind), and they've been nowhere near the first team. As a pathway, it's rubbish. If they sign and go straight into the first team then they do well (Stones, Holgate, DCL), but an extended period with Unsworth ruins them.

Lewis Gibson is still only 19 and was doing very well at Fleetwood pre lockdown.

Holgate also spent some time in the U23 before he got a few loans, the good 1s are generally loaned out, if they have the talent the pathway is there, as we are seeing with DCL, Holgate, Davies and Gordon.

This is another reason Europa is so vital to us as a club.
