    Rumours Without A Link

    Maybe a year too late. Still a good player. But would prefer us to be thinking of the future and getting in younger players.

    It’s the chances thing for me PeteO. There is no evidence whatsoever that says we concede more chances with in the team. Yet there are stats saying he stops many many attacks against us. I also don’t think we play with a worse tempo. If anything we play with a much faster tempo this year then we have for a good few years. I do agree Gana isn’t the best attacking player we have, but he’s not the worst either. Lets take the last match. He set up a chance that was missed. He also was an important factor in one of our goals. That’s a good return for a player that is primarily a break up midfielder. Yes, it’s not often enough. But don’t we say the same about players who’s job it is to create? Do we berate Richarlison, because he doesn’t make enough interceptions? Do we think Gomes is the second worst player in Evertons history, because he keeps giving the ball away in our last third? Of course we don’t, because we understand that they do their job well. Just as Gana does exactly what he is meant to be doing. This is why managers pick him, teammates rate him, and generally fans appreciate him.

    Just food for thought. No wants Morgan.... why is that? Surely if Gana makes him look bad, there should be a queue of clubs after him. Gomes. Is desperately wanted back by Barca? Or are they willing to let him go? Barry. He still playing? Three managers allow Gana to get away with playing in the wrong positions, while offering nothing to the team. Does that mean that he’s just an amazing guy? No wants to drop him because he’s so nice? The food for though, is that, could it be.... and I’m going off on a tangent here...... the managers tell him to go pressing as they see that as his main asset? I don’t know, maybe tackling, interceptions etc? I know I know, radical thinking and all that.

    Guys I’m the one who started this with what was meant to be a bit of sarcastic fun that’s all. Il sure Palfy, PeteO and Bailey know I do it for fun and it’s nothing personal as I often agree with all three of them (in other threads 😉) many times. People are responding to the comments I have made and as often with my.... not very well thought out comments, I seem to start a war haha. What we can all agree on though.... is that Gana’s great!!! An Everton hero, legend and will go down in folklore!

    Guys why are you bothering? Its getting daft now. You’ve got Palfy complaining in above post that when the full backs rampage forward Gana doesn’t offer cover as he’s all over the place,... then Bailey saying that Gana presses in the wrong places.... mainly helping the full backs. Then you have PeteO blaming him for pretty much everything that happens to Everton. And apparently we have one of the worst midfields in the league and concede more chances than any other team.... but somehow Sky sports don’t notice that 😳 awkward! Oh that’s right, I forgot, their stats are skewed and dont tell the full story .... yawn. Actually no stats anywhere on the whole frocken internet notice these stats. And these are three of the guys that apparently watch and notice him more than any others. I’m pretty sure they send each other PMs to keep the wind up going. That’s the only explanation surely? Got it, you guys all apply to work for Sky for a fortune and once they realise they, along with pretty much all journalists and managers, have got it so wrong for so long..... you’ll be able to ask for a blank cheque!

    Was that the one where he looked at the right corner and moved his head that way.... and it nestled right in the corner? On the left? Brillliant watching the commentators after asking if he meant it... couldn’t believe when many of them said, yes definitely hahahaha!

    I’m sure that’s not the rule on the continent is it? I remember a lot of players coming here from Europe and being shocked at the tax they have to pay. And when wages are listed, they are always listed gross not net. So if a player is on 135k here, that’s before tax, if a player is on 75k in Europe, that’s before tax.

    We lost two and drew one at home.

    Ahh then yes, he has the wrong player. I knew it along really.

    Won 3 and drew one!!!! Hmmmm!!!! i think this is why I’m sure your looking at the wrong person. You really should have gone to spec savers. Offbthe top of my head I remember the 2-5 thrashing to Spurs. Wasn’t he missing for that one? I thought he was but without checking I’ll have to apologise to you.

    Other than Kante. Chelsea nearly conceded twice the last match, due to Kante giving away possession, not only in his own half but his own area. Happens pretty much every week with him. They need to get rid of him..... not even a pub league player him.

    What about when he set up a clear chance Palfy? I even commented in the match thread pointing out that it’s not an assist because we didn’t put it away. So again opinions aside, he was productive.... FACT. Got to give you credit though. You get knocked down ( time and time again) but you get up again. Your like a journeyman boxer mate.
