  1. I didn’t mind Hitzlsperger! The bloke had an absolute hammer of a shot. Swap him for Segundo Castillo for my team. We have had some absolute donkeys.
  2. Exactly right! Mental health creeps in a bit more during quite times and you just never know what’s going on behind closed doors.
  3. I just thought I’d drop a message out given the current circumstances of what we are all going through right now. During this time of isolation if there’s anyone who during this period of isolation feels they are struggling, alone or just feel that need a chat, drop a pm at any time and we can organise something. Lots of love to everyone 💙💙
  4. I understand some people talking about money as it’s key to survival - I’ve lost nearly everything I’ve worked FIFO for in the last 2 years on stocks and to be honest, that’s just how it is as it was always a risk. Our government has put restrictions in on non essential services. For instance hair dressers can’t take more than 30 mins on a hair cut - they can’t make enough money to pay for their rents but the restrictions mean if they close its a voluntary close not an enforced one - to which they have to pay their rent still. Honestly, lock it down. Everything that isn’t fighting this pandemic and essential. The economy will recover, eventually.
  5. Just watched this. Absolutely beaming with our club and what they are doing.
  6. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/beta.hitc.com/en-gb/2020/03/19/do-imagine-the-scenes-everton-fans-cant-believe-who-theyve-been/%3famp Who would you rather?
  7. What’s the difference though to what other clubs are doing? Because He isn’t an official sponsor we can’t sell naming rights to him?
  8. First time in a long time I think we are okay here. Dom and Richie first 2 - both with room to develop and doing a great job. “If” Kean kicks on and becomes what is expected of him then we will have 3 of the best strikers in the league - I don’t want another striker taking up his minutes. Simms is in the pipe line as well and has obviously got the talent.
  9. He’s got everything. That Newcastle goal where he rolls it into the bottom corner sums up of good he is at finishing like that, composed as it comes - similar to his goal against wolves when he first signed. 20 goal a season striker, no doubt
  10. He’s a seriously good footballer. Technical ability is sublime. I don’t think he was interested at all but the ancelotti factor could get this over the line.
  11. Easy to forget Mina is still 24/25. Holgate 23. Good recruitment here and happy to see the change in direction. He is more than capable of coming into the first 11 as well. Also; finally a left footed CB
  12. I just don’t see him that way to be honest, I’m pretty comfortable with him at the back. He’s gangly and awkward but I think a proper solid RB and Holgate continuing to develop next to him is a good base. If we can get Digne back from last season as well that is.
  13. He’s aggressive and doesn’t take shit from any one. He’s an alpha and that’s what a CB should be
  14. And Bernard is easily our flair 10. RB, CB and CM with really energy and presence ( Gbamin hopefully )
  15. Agree about the position, through no real fault of his own. Koeman tried him at RB for a period in a pre season. Silva had him further forward and he’s even found himself out wide. He is at his best with late runs forward and trying to get behind the defensive line. Needs to sharpen up some of his 2 touch football, pass, move, receive and pass type football. A promoted team should be trying snap him up on loan.
  16. I like Kenny, he’s a real battler - few little technical things to iron out but that will come. I hope after chelsea this Gylfi wide left thing is done. I’d sooner see Gordon get time or Kean come in. Richarlison is doing excellent uptop but let’s find out what role this kids can play next season because I think we all know that Gylfi is going to be minimal.
  17. I’ve said from the moment we signed Gomes that Davis needs to shadow him. He lacks mobility but he is strong on the ball and can dribble. Either Davies and Gomes need to be paired with someone with real energy and puts a foot in but actually wins the ball. We had some one pretty similar to that last season. Hopes for Gbamin still. Davies probably needs to be in a midfield 3 to start off as well as he can’t control a midfield like Gomes yet...
  18. You know if Marco has set us up like this and this happened he would have been slaughtered. Absolutely no passion. This 4-4-2 with Gylfi wide is baffling, he offers absolutely nothing. If we play like this in the derby it will be a cricket score. So many players that are going through the motions.
  19. I pushed as hard as anyone for DCL to be given a chance at the start of season and it’s not to get some acknowledgment from others now. More to get a bit of understanding for when I say I want him to get even better. Glad he scored today and it rewards his hard work but I really want to see him work on his body shape when finishing. He is always looking to turn and get in behind, definitely has the pace for it as we’ve seen. Needs to become more natural at opening his body up and side footing/passing it in. His 1v1 today he went with the outside of the foot and got little power - once he adds a little bit more composure and finesse with shooting/dribbling he will have every attribute he needs. Absolutely delighted for him and the seasons he’s having but I don’t want him to settle for this when his ceiling is still so much higher.
  20. He cares, there’s no doubt. This isn’t a retirement job for him, it’s a project that he is heavily investing in and I’m genuinely excited and proud to have him.
  21. Tough game. Expecting lampard to set them up in an attacking 4-4-3 knowing he’s got VAR between the sticks that’s kept out more goals than any keeper this season.
  22. This is what’s annoyed me. The fact the refs feel they don’t owe an explanation for decisions. The fact our manager has had to go on and seek an explanation is a joke. Let alone the 10’s of thousands that pay to attend the games and also the millions that watch on TV. DRS in cricket takes too long for football but atleast you are walked through the decision making process and even IF the decision ends up ( rarely does ) viewers have atleast got knowledge of the process taken to get to the decision.
