I can, we'd be selling a player to a club with CL ambitions and "replacing" him with a player discarded by one. However you spin it (more 'dynamic' midfield, which I think is grasping at straws) it's a backward step for me.

Your forgetting a very crucial point he wants to go backwards step or not he doesn’t want to play for us Delph does.

The King is dead long live the King

When Delph wins player of the season I'll consider it.

😂 that’s fair enough mate, but I wager you Delph scores more points than Gana this season 😜

Yeh I thought he looked good too. There was a couple of occasions where he charged out of midfield on his own and they just knocked it around him causing us a problem but on the ball I couldnt really fault him.

Delph was tidy today, watching him live you can see him talking a lot and seems to have integrated himself already. Always wanted the ball which I like. He’s not just a stopper he can see a pass 

Seems like what a few of us have been saying that we have been missing from a certain one trick Pony MF, good  on Delph.

Signing for a champions league club doesn't make you instantly better than a cast off from another. If City were in for Gana they'd be more of an argument but not PSG side that signed Choupo-Moting from Stoke last year.

My only worry is that is definitely not a Gana replacement, or rather not the type people wanted to replace Gana with. He seems less creative than Gana even. Great on the ball and always willing to receive it, but not the type we would be hoping to replace Gana, that can unlock a defence.

But then Im basing that on 45 mins haha. But that what is Evertonians do isn't it?

Doesn’t need to be creative though - just win it and move it quickly to the likes of - Gylfi, Gomes, Bernard, Richarlison, Dinge and from there we go!

Think your drunk again mate. I was pointing out that he wasn’t creative, but that Delph created even less. 

Thats why I do t think he’s the answer to our creativity problem.

I agree there. Was just pointing out that he’s not the creative spark that some wanted to replace Gana.

From what I saw his passing and directness was much sharper and poaitive than Gana and that is what we need from someone in that role. Gomes can play, Siggy has guile and then we have the two wide players to bring that creativity. 

Time will tell though!

his pressing and positioning was much worse though.  he doesn't have anywhere near the talent Gana did in disposssing players and breaking up play.

Listen to Bailey mate the wise one ☝️, what I was saying is you used the word creative in the same sentence as Gana who is not creative, and therefore it’s impossible for Delph to be less creative than Gana who is non creative, Gana is disruptive to the opposition and not creative for us.

Spot on Bailey when the wise words are required you deliver, your definitely not Gana in your delivery more like an Arteta.

Can’t agree, but do realise it’s just opinion. I didn’t see anything that suggest creativeness, but it’s a half of a match.

I do like his willingness to receive the ball though and think Davies is going to grow learning from him.

Everton come before me and you proving each other right/wrong though.

Positioning was better but his ability to close and press play was worse. It was only 45 minutes though so we will know a lot more about him in due course.

Let’s be fair he is a different player and we were having a kick about it wasn’t a normal match. Let’s just wait and see. Gana was pretty much a one off regarding styles. Obvious comparison is the Chelsea lad and maybe Ndidi at Leicester

I don’t think I’ve seen anyone say he’s better than Gana at the thing he does best winning the ball back, but some think he could offer different dynamics to the team which could improve us, let’s see how he’s performing after 5 or 6 games.

A couple of times he sloppily gave the ball away again but it was a more polished performance as he’s getting more up to speed. 

I actually loved it when they were trying to break on us and he blatantly just chopped their player in half and got booked :lol: 

Made a nice change to see someone other than a Wolves player chopping an opponent down 😂

That’s what we need though. I thought exactly the same thing. We have to be ruthless like that.

Not sure they are the exact same type of player but Delph could potentially have the same effect which is what is important.

That was kind of what I meant in that they both came from City and were both greeted with less than rapturous optimism but could both defy expectation.

Good to see so many have changed their tune since the initial article linking him with us! 

But it's still just a couple of games; I'm optimistic but he has a long way to go to prove himself.

Couldn’t agree more. So far so good but I still think he’ll miss more than the average amount due to injuries.
