    Southampton (Home) Saturday August 18th

    I'm basing it on the whole 90, you're the one referencing 5 mins of highlights. Turning forward? I wish. Seriously look at his passes during the game. Barely one forward and very few in the oppositions half. In the last 5 mins he completely missed Davies' run. Could have helped put the game to bed. My appreciation for football is the reason I don't rate him. I'm happy to change my mind when I'm proven wrong. Cuco was a clown at first but actually was solid enough defensively even though he was playing out of position. Pretty much all the fans laughed at Niasse but now sing his name, for what he lacks in ability he makes up for in effort. Gana doesn't even do that, gets wrong side flues in then just jogs back not arsed about conceding or that he was at fault. He's the least 'Everton' player ever.

    Okay so 1 shot and 1 basic pass shows he's phenomenal going forward. Is it asking too much for a footballer to be able to pass the ball, position himself correctly and not be scared to carry it forward. Other than running around I don't see what he adds.

    Davies made 4 unsuccessful passes, Gana had 9 although played more minutes. I'd argue he's one of the next at keeping it. Remember the end of last season he was the player we looked to to keep the ball in the corner held his own very well and helped tick down the clock.

    Perfectly good? It was reckless. The ball was out of his control.

    Not even gonna bother with the fact argument. I watched the whole game and he really didn't. Go on the stats and check every game and you'll see how little he actually moves the ball to help dictate play. He's all over the pitch like a mad man but adds nothing going forward. Sideways 5 yard passes. He's a crab.

    That's giving him a lot of credit, but how many did he make in the game? Probs the only time he carried forward with the ball in their half as well. Something else he doesn't do enough of. http://www.evertonfc.com/evertontv/archive/2018/08/18/everton-21-southampton-5-min-highlights One pass all game hardly makes it a fact. Does the vids of Richarlison scoring on his left defunct any critism for him not being very good on his wrong foot? Morgan is the one who can pass the ball.. When he's not being a massive shitbag. I can't be arsed saving the pics to upload but I've done it previously and there is very little forward especially on the oppositions half. His passes are mostly short sideways. Basically doesn't take responsibility and lacks vision.

    He was his usual self. Davies made a run through the middle and had loads of space, but a forward pass just isn'tt in Gana's locker. His off ball is terrible as well always goes hiding about 2 yards in the wrong place. Biggest compliment players said about Barry was that he always made himself available for the ball. Whereas Gana doesn't want it, like watching a kid play hot potato when he does get the ball as he can't get rid of it fast enough often, and when he doesn't play it safe he often plays a teammate into danger, how often a player loses the ball after receiving it from Gana? Rarely is his pass good enough for the next player to play it forward with them then often having to play the ball safe backwards, he's almost redundant in our play. Don't think I've ever witnessed any other player scared of the ball. Watch Davies compared to Gana, play in the same position yet he's constantly getting between the lines and calling for the ball.

    Exactly, it was Pickford's ball all day. If he left out people would be losing their shit. Ings knew the risk, he put himself there knowing he was second to it. I can't believe how much motd and Hughes when on about it. You get similar incidents every season and this is the first time I've heard anyone even consider it a red, usually it goes unmentioned.

    Firminio does it for the full 90 and gets in their faces. Tosun done well but it's clearly not his game.

    I notice it, just they are too slow to do it effectively. Firminio across the park is one of the best at it, our very own awkward arse Niasse. Tosun and Gylfi are too slow to get there quick enough and force the mistakes. They close the lanes which is the main thing I'll give them that, but I could almost hear Tosun panting at 70 mins it's just not his game.

    Gylfi Sigurdsson

    For me only one of him or Tosun should start, both give it their all but are too slow for a pressing style. When trying to press they end up just chasing shadows. That said I'd rather it be Tosun as Sigurdssen one twos would be missed.

    Tom Davies

    Only fault I remember is his clearance being very poor. Drilled it along the floor, should've lumped it. He's got a good football brain and is solid on the ball, just need to find another player like Barry to go next to him.
  14. See the subjects of poverty and wages here. Government just puts spin more people are working than ever.. Makes it even worse that they are paid less than ever. Fuck knows how there's not been a revolution here yet.

    Yerry Mina

    Once he settled he made less defensive errors than most, but he'd already made a reputation in his first few games when he was an absolute farce. I thought defensively he done well on the left, only real critism was the Salah slip but even then I think people were too harsh on him for that one.
