    Richarlison

    There’s no way Richarlison is a midfielder...but it’s a good return for a wide forward in a struggling team.

    Ademola Lookman

    And I like lookman. I think he’s a good passer, tries to make things happen and has a shot. If he started the next ten games I’d fancy him to get a couple of goals, I wouldn’t fancy Bernard to get a league goal this season...

    Ademola Lookman

    I just don’t see it. He’s far too lightweight to ever make it as a top player in this league. Silva and mata are both small too but they’re stronger. And also a different level of football player. Bernard falls over himself never mind when anyone comes near him. He’s been benched as often as he started and Fans have not really been banging the drum that he must start. And this team is really shit. That speaks volumes for me.

    Ademola Lookman

    Bernard for me doesn’t do enough. Full of lovely touches but very little penetration. I’d like to know how many shots he’s had in what is likely over 20 appearances. Lookman has the most potential but for some reason Silva doesn’t fancy him either it appears. It’s like he needs to produce an 8/10 performance to keep his place when the aforementioned produce 5 or 6 and keep their place. Lookman needs a run of games in the team then we can judge him the same as the other two, who can count themselves fortunate to play so much.

    Richarlison

    I just don’t think he’s as good as what we thought. His passing is dreadful. He gets into so many good positions and then either loses the ball trying to beat a man or plays an awful pass....he’s a real scatty player

    Marcel Brands (DoF)

    I must be watching a different game then...Michael Keane slightly (most of the praise had been way over the top) but I can’t think of anyone else. Walcott and tosun were better under allardyce. Schneiderlin was better when he arrived, sigurdsson I’m not quite sure when he’s played well, but he was certainly better at Swansea. The previous managers were also shit nogs. Koeman was dreadful, can we even remember a game when we thought we played well except the city 4-0? Let’s not even discuss unsworth and allardyce is well, Sam allardyce and I don’t want to give him more dicusssion time. The players did not get allardyce the sack. Bad appointments of managers with poor track records. Poor track records for where we want to get to. its ironic that we are saying we should give managers more time when we appointed koeman and Silva on the basis of short term success at their previous clubs.

    Managers can’t physically control what actually happens on the pitch. However, they spend all week coaching and directing them as to what to do. If players are under performing, collectively like ours right now, then something isn’t right. It starts from above. Look at man utd, need I say more. Whether you like it or not, some players don’t perform under managers they don’t like, or when there is no team spirit, no direction and basically when they don’t like going to work. This is true in most walks of life. The biggest responsibility of a manager is to get the best out of his players. That is their key role within the club. Especially one with a director of football in place. Can you name me a player now who is performing to their best? Just one maybe?
  8. Bournemouth smashing Chelsea today, Leicester drawing against Liverpool, Newcastle beating city.....just thinking how we accept defeat by these clubs “as long as we put a good performance” ive heard so many fans talk about promising performances against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and man utd. We picked up one point from the games combined.

    Yerry Mina

    I appreciate the “he needs time to adapt to the English game” argument. But we generally can see the ones who are good players, and just need a bit of time to become even better. Mina doesn’t appear to be one of these. He’s too unsteady and rash and the way evertonians are with defenders who are clumsy, he’ll get annialated after a few mistakes....I remember our fans slating materazzi 😂

    Richarlison

    I don’t have much confidence in him when he’s dribbling at defenders to keep the ball. He can be quite scatty for a Brazilian! He doesn’t have his head up either. There was a couple of times today where he let’s us down in good situations. He started well but looks a different player now. I think it’s hard to judge right now as there are so many players who seem to be underperforming. It could be they have lost faith in what the manager is trying to do. It’s like sigurdsson is playing as a second striker and we just have two players in midfield with 4 up front who never seem to get the ball as much as they should...

    Jordan Pickford

    There’s not just rumours about Pickford, Michael Keane also...who’s not in bad form...

    Jordan Pickford

    Nothing....I’d be doing the same...

    Jordan Pickford

    I’ve heard Pickford is straight up to Newcastle for a night out after most matches. There’s a few other rumours knocking about too which ain’t good...

    Jordan Pickford

    Can someone please tell me what is wrong with comparing Pickford to Southall anyhow??? Isn’t that what we are trying to achieve? They’re both goalkeepers who played for us....granted Southall was arguably the best in the world for a period when he played for us...but isn’t De Gea? Potentially Ederson, Alisson? Aren’t they in our league. We need one of the best to compete with these so what’s wrong with the comparison?

    Tom Davies

    He doesn’t have anything to his game unfortunately. He’s not good enough for this level. So many English players fail to kick on....it would be interesting to know how dedicated some are off the field, or whether they are always out, etc, or whether they lose the motivation once nailing a big contract. You can’t have millions of Harry Kanes but we’ve seen so many just stand still
