Used the search function, couldn't find anything for him.

 

He's really impressing in Pre-season and is for the most part, being played out of position.

 

There's reports claiming he'll be getting a new contract shortly. Koeman VERY impressed with him.

He hasn't particularly impressed since being played in midfield though. I'm very excited about him, but he's not ready yet.

I thought he was brilliant against Norwich. Not going to judge him on friendlies, but he looked a lot better than some of their players. That said he is still a kid learning his trade and should be treated as such.

Impressed again last night. He added a lot more dynamism than Barry had been up until that point. Looks to have far more forward-thinking to his game which is what we are crying out for in the middle of the park.

 

Keep building his minutes up, perhaps start him against Leicester in the cup. We look like we have a player on our hands but he needs to be handled carefully.

I agree. He shouldn't be thrown right in just yet in my opinion - he does give the ball away a lot, something more senior players (including Barkley) will get berated for but he's always looking forward and gets us working at a higher tempo. We need to sign a more mature/established version of Davies in this window and give Davies cameos and the odd start - he could be a 1st team regular come next season.

Schneiderlin. Please. Please. Please.

Ive watched him with a few non Everton fans and they're like whose this kid? Always wants the ball always looking for a forward pass. Not afraid to take a yellow when needed and liked that he had a go at the linesman when his shirt got pulled for a borderline pen

I thought he struggled to get involved for long periods of time tbh.

I thought he played it safe for the most part, which I'm okay with at this point. I enjoyed seeing the amount of pressure he applied when SOU was on the ball.

I don't think he played badly or anything but impressive isn't the word that would come to my mind.

Was just going to say that after reading through the MOTM thread :lol:.

I think, sometimes, the thing is that players like him on days like today don't get fully appreciated for the work they do that actually allows the likes of Barkley, Mirrallas etc to express themselves more and find more space.

Tbf, I was watching out for him all game long coz I was interested to see how he'd do starting, and the conclusion I came to was that he's not ready for it.

Crikey.

 

I wasn't watching out for him. But I kept noticing him.

Only criticism I could have is that he sometimes let his willingness to impress get the better of him.

 

Still one of the best on the pitch though and better than what we have had recently.

complete polar opposite for me, he should be starting in place of Gana and alongside him after AFCON!
