Baines

Recommended Posts

Most dangerous corners we’ve seen all season, always got it into dangerous areas.  Amazed we never really got on to any of them.

excellent all round performance, great to see him getting some games and still be able to produce top performances.

i agree with having, it would be a shame to see him playing on when he’s no longer up to it.  Quite hard to judge as a player and for the coach when he gets so little real game time though.

i think baines himself will know when it’s time to stop.

I’m happy with this, top man and player, knows he can’t do week in week out anymore, but still delivers when needed, and we can’t underestimate the importance of a quality senior player in the dressing room.

I agree with this, apart from when he came into the team he did do it week in week out. I know it was only for a few weeks, but it’s all we can judge him on. He’s been our best left back this season, considering the competition its a big compliment.

Sad day.  Tim Howard brought me here but I always say Leighton is what kept me here.  Class act and the most underrated LB in the premier league.  Those free kicks were magnificent and the penalties were sublime.  Best of luck in retirement!

:( it won’t quite be the same for a bit with him not around. Really hope he wants to stay and work at the club. 

I kind of get the feeling he probably won’t want to work in football in any capacity.

I think he might, provided it’s not full time.

I’d be happy if he did. I just remember reading this quote a few years ago:

When asked whether he will remain in football post-retirement, Baines told the Daily Mail: “I hope not. As much as I love it – the reason I don’t watch or read about it now is because I am giving everything I can to it – any bits of time that are my own, I come away from it.

“So when I finish, I think I will get that passion back as I won’t be involved in it. I reckon I would go back as a fan, but I’d like to do something else. I just want to try a different world, with different people, different experiences.”

He may come back once half the gobshites have been sold.  I seen footage of him watching the wolves gane with disgust on his face.

I remember. I think after a season off he’ll want to be involved in some way again. If not coaching then in eitc

Yeah I can’t imagine the last two seasons were fun for him to watch.

My favourite player over the last ten years.

How many tines have people said Baines is past it now so we can’t rely on him, only for him to come on and not only do a job, but do it well. 
 

Very rarely he ever gave anything other than a 6 or above, generally 7 and above. 
 

Whenever that ball was placed down, we all held our breath, expecting to see the net bulge! One of our best, love the bloke in our beautiful blue.

Imagine how much better we would be if all of our players could play to a 6 or above now!

We would be challenging for top 6. Say what you like about Moyes, but he brought in some hungry players. They might not have had the technical ability to take us higher, but they had heart and fight.

If we could just mix that hunger and ability, our fortunes would change.

Bye Leighton, have a deserved retirement and Live in the history of Everton forever.
