I didn't think he was that bad today but he is never going to look good when we have control of the possession and he is expected to contribute to the build up play. he is a very limited footballer and his first instinct is always safety. I have absolutely no idea what he was thinking for the goal though, and you just cant be doing that at this level given his job is to track those type of runs into the box. Its a basic job and he needs to be dropped if he thinks that its acceptable.

Bailey you sum up the massive contradiction of everyone who tries to defend him. He wasn't that bad - apart from being a very limited footballer who fucked up for a goal 😂

He constantly lets runners go. And we shouldn't be fielding limited footballers!

If we didn’t field limited footballers we wouldn’t have anyone on the pitch at the moment. 

Our U23s have been good enough to win back to back PL2 titles, they can't be that limited. I'd rather be fielding players who have the potential to improve than 'senior pros' who you know will contribute next to nothing positive.

Worlds apart! Under 23s football and the premier league as a huge step up, love the idea but it just isn’t happening. If three of those lads become first team regulars it would be a minor miracle.

Just look how they’ve done in the cup comp vs League 1 and 2 opposition whilst winning these leagues. Massive step-up to even lower league football. We are in the minority who keeps our ‘best’ youngsters to play regularly in the u23 league. Look how Chelsea are now reaping the benefits of using the loan market (and players playing at a higher level) rather than taking the u23 league so seriously.

Chelsea's best young players are playing in the PL!

Then let's just keep playing underperforming, overpaid, under motivated, rank average 'seniors' who at this rate could drag us into serious relegation trouble.

After a series of successful loans rather than playing in the u23 league. It seems Brands is wise to this with the Hornby and Kenny loans as 2 recent examples.

We've got loads out on loan. I reckon we should be pulling a few back to play for us coz there are players turning out for us right now who just aren't worthy of pulling on the blue shirt and we are in shit because of it.

He’s crap this fella but really no worse than the other lot around him. Just gets lynched more  because of his gait and demeanour. Mina and sig were dreadful for both goals today and I can’t think of one player who was average. Even our annoying goalkeeper makes a good save but then boots the ball out about fifteen times because he thinks he’s pirlo

Let's be honest, Morgan Schneiderlin is a footballer who has said he felt that he may have been too hasty in leaving Man Utd for Everton, plays for a Manager who didn't sign him, puts in lacklustre performances, and looks like he doesn't want to be here. He's given all that he's prepared to give, and we are not going to get any more out of him than what we are getting.

We should have cut our losses and got rid after that incident when he and Mirallas were giggling away like schoolchildren at some event or other, and Duncan Ferguson took them to task. Sad thing is, I'm pretty sure his contract doesn't run out until around June 2021. So if we can't get rid before then, I feel he should be benched with label stuck to him stating: 'Use Only In Extreme Emergencies'.

Schneiderlin getting it the most for yesterday (other than Silva) even though I can think of quite a few others who made his performance one of the better ones... I can't say I'm surprised.

Lost his man for their first goal, didn't follow him into the box, could be seen jogging back. Didn't looked arsed about it either, sums him up in my opinion. Not fit to wear the shirt.

I'm not saying he played well, LB, far from it, but he always gets it more than any other player if the team play badly. 

I watched him twice receive the ball and try and push us up the pitch and break away but he just didn't have the pace for it. He didn't play like a man that didn't give a shit for me, not at all. Meanwhile, you've got players like Sigurdsson who actually do hide on the pitch. He was like a mole that had burrowed under the pitch to hide in the darkness.

This!!

It doesn’t matter how Morgan plays, he’s a shit house, he doesn’t care, he isn’t fit to wear the shirt. 

Ive seen more from Morgan this season than I’ve seen from Gylfi, and not just a little bit. Gylfi looks like he wants to be anywhere other than Goodison Park. 


Morgan was lucky not to be sent off yesterday, but at least he had a go. I’ll never get on a players case for not having certain abilities, as Mark said Morgan didn’t have the pace to see through what he wanted to do. Gylfi and plenty of others haven’t even tried. It frustrates me with Gylfi as the man has plenty of ability, maybe not pace, but he can pass a ball and he can cross and he can shoot, but he doesn’t even want the ball. 
I know which of the two id rather have in the side right now.

I agree Gylfi is poor, all the things you say about him are right. He should not start for us which is what I posted on the match thread when the teams were announced. 

The same is true for Schneiderlin, when the going gets tough he goes missing. No excuse for not busting a gut to get back to try and prevent the goal. Yes he cops more negative comments than he should, although not by me. He has been poor since Ronalds first season here, with a few good games thrown in to annoy us as it shows he can do it when he is in the mood.

Yes Gylfi has the ability but like Schneiderlin not the mental fortitude to play for us. Both should be shipped out by Brands. I would rather have Iwobi and Benni playing than those two any day.

Me too, he broke out and ran, but clearly didn’t want to be the man with the ball as he didn’t know what to do with it, and frustratingly failed to pass and lost the ball.

None of the above were evident yesterday, he ran around in circles chasing the ball or being sold simple dummies.

Nogs there is a difference between being limited and not giving a shit. I wouldn't play him if I had the choice but he is in there doing what he can fairly near to the maximum of his limitations. He should be sat behind a midfield two where he doesn't have to use his pace or cover ground. If you get him doing much more than that you will be asking for trouble.

Everyone fucked up countless times in that game but Morgan will cop the biggest because his is the most obvious. Both Mina and Holgate should have dealt with that goal as they also should have the second. How many times did our attacking players fail to get a shot on target or fail to make the right pass? They get away with it more because the impact of their lack of quality wasn't as obvious.

Schneiderlin is a player that wouldn't be in our first choice 11, in fact I am not sure if he would make the bench with everyone fit but when 3 players in that position are our you are scraping the barrel.

Gylfi is a massive problem for us especially when people moan about how we dont play enough football through the middle. He does hide and he doesn't take responsibility. He also hovers around the same lines as the striker meaning its hard for us to get the ball into the strikers feet.

I did however think that he improved a lot when he was played deeper and alongside Davies. Then he was on the ball, making forward runs, picking out passes or at least trying to. With Gomes out, he needs to drop deeper and get on the ball a lot more.

Schneiderlin stops because he thinks Mina and Holgate are going to deal with the attack. Holgate looks well out of position to start with the fudges the tackle and Mina doesnt make the tackle that he should do either. Schneiderlin is tracking Cantwell to start with but he stops when he thinks the other two are going to win the ball. I think that a man of his experience should keep tracking the man as a safety first approach. You also have to question why Sidibe is in a completely different parish to Mina as well. Bar myself, I havent heard any one else comment on how shite the other 3 were in that goal.

Schneiderlin gets it more than most because he has been consistently poor and ineffective for longer than anyone else in the team. Sigurdsson wouldn't be far behind imo. I don't give a fuck about injuries. If you keep playing out of form, limited, disinterested players, whatever it is with them, you will not win many football matches. That's a key reason why we are where we are. We can change the manager, but until we're bold about changing the playing staff too, we're going nowhere.

https://www.toffeeweb.com/season/19-20/squad.php

What that list does highlight is just how much player turnover there has been, which although necessary I'd also destabilising. We got nowhere near rebuilding the squad the way we needed to in the summer, which is why we're still seeing Schneiderlin starting and a woeful Sigurdsson sulking. It's a really shit situation. But we have to make the best of what we have. And for me that means a new manager who will inspire and give a few young hungry players a chance, rather than just expecting chronically underperforming players to come good. 

Because let's face it, we all accepted the likes of Williams and Bolasie were busted flushes. Why would we expect any kind of turn around from players like Schneiderlin and Sigurdsson?

Your right, but I dont think our troubles will be over when he has gone, but when he, Cenk and Siggy have left we can fully repair the damage to our squad.

What I was trying to refer to is that he alone if gone will not solve our problems, there are equally as poor players in the team but they don’t get same amount of condemnation as him, why is it that Gylfi and Tosun don’t get the same or any where near as much on their threads is my point, it’s like all the blame is going one way which is becoming a blinkered approach. 
Yes he is poor and shouldn’t be here, but he has become the easy target for some, who don’t criticise equally as poor players in the same way, it maybe a form of band wagon jumping with some I don’t know 🤷‍♂️

Look in the Brands thread - I said ‘DCL way better than the invisible Todun’ I’m happy to say it as I see it. I’ll criticise when they’re poor and praise when they’re due praise. Morgan has been at the club for longer than most so I’m very confident in my opinion on him and I’m almost certain that won’t change.

I have been disgusted with Morgan basically since he arrived and certainly one of the biggest moaners about it but have never said getting rid of him would solve everything. Doesn’t change the fact I want him gone though. Wouldn’t play him in my sunday league side based on attitude alone.

So when he arrived and he was in great form you were disgusted? Even though at the time he was one of our best performers?

Im sure you’re a better judge of his attitude than the managers who keep picking him.

Were you proud of him when he and Mirallas disrespected the club by not taking training seriously, and were disciplined by the club?

I agree in is first season he was our best player by a mile, but how would describe his form since then?

Im not actually proud of any of our players, that’s not an emotion I attach to a footballer personally, so no I’m not proud of him at any point.

Do you honestly think there have been no issues of fighting or arguing or people kicking off at training other than that one occasion? The only issue I’ve got with what happened that day was that it was made public. It should have stayed in house, like the many other incidents have. 
 

Since his first season his form has been up and down. But fans like you who can’t let that one incident go won’t even admit when he had played well, and he has at times. He’s been no worse than many of his team mates.

I can't believe I am sticking up for him but;

1. You don't actually know what happened bearing in mind both players have denied it;

2. There are a lot of players that have a laugh and a joke at training - Mikel has just said that Hazard barely trained in his time at Chelsea.

I wouldn’t call it sticking up for him, I think he has been very poor for quite a while now and occasionally he will put a half decent game in but we need players with some consistency, and that he hasn’t got. 
What gets my back up is that he being made the scapegoat for all that’s wrong with the team.

Fighting and arguing among players is one thing, it happens, not training properly then when asked to up his game or leave he chooses to leave is something else. In my opinion it shows a lack of respect for staff, teammates, and the club.

1) What happened was widely reported and Schneiderlin was disciplined by the club.

2) Hazard is a world class player, one of the best to of ever played in the premier league, he can get away with it. Schneiderlin is not a world class player by any stretch of the imagination so he has to train!

I didn’t remember them being dropped so thanks for the link. 
 

You really don’t think them incidents happen all the time? It might not go as far as players being told to leave, but these things happen. Listen to any ex pro talk about things that happen on the training ground and it’s all the time. 
 

Fans like you, I told you exactly what I meant. I said “fans like you who can’t let that one incident go won’t even admit when he had played well, and he has at times” I’m not sure I can make that any clearer. You can take it as snide if you like, but my point was clear. I think you can’t see past that issue, you say you’ve no vendetta but you bring up an incident from two years ago. So, fans like you was aimed directly at fans like you who can’t get over that incident. It’s not me who needs to calm down, I’m not taking it personally. No need to be thinking “fans like you” is an insult.

I think he gets it more than most because he is so consistent. 

Many player can have an off day, or even a day when they just can’t find the motivation. But Schniederlin seems to be very consistent. 

Generally gets booked very early in the match. And then has to be careful how he goes into tackles for the rest of the match. It’s almost like he ALWAYS seems to have a reason he can’t put effort in.

He doesn't want to be at the club. It's abundantly clear that this club isn't for him. The issue is that we demand all our players put the same performances in as the very top clubs. There are no hiding places at Everton and I think he would prefer to be back at Southampton were he can have the occasional off game and nobody will bat an eyelid

1) I dont remember him being "disciplined" unless you mean he didn't play the following week. Morgan's side of the story is here by the way:

2) No-one should be able to get away with it. They all have to train. At least Morgan turned up for training on time unlike Kean!

Is there anyone on here who's not been late for work on occasion? Unlikely I think. Personally I used to get the piss taken on the odd occasions I was on time (eg "shit the bed") because I was virtually always late; that said no problem with the bosses because they knew if I needed to stay for 24/48 hours (sometimes more) I'd do it.

I’ve turned up late for work yes.

I haven't not turned up to a team meeting though, as I know how important it is for all to turn up.

But late for work many times haha.

Who didn’t turn up for a team meeting?

I’ve been late to both, for many different reasons. Some professional, some not. Why? Because I’m not perfect and sometimes shit happens. 
 

Morgan has had personal problems, hard ones. When he’s on form he’s a fantastic player, but most of the time it’s like his alter ego takes over. Personally see him as a mind whose emotions can very much dictate his behaviour, which is something I relate too.

Im sure his managers would be forgiving if there is/are valid reasons for it. But judging by the reactions from senior staff, it would suggest there aren’t.

And I’m getting sidetracked again haha as I’m far far from perfect as well 🙂

Im still talking about Kean 🙄

He lost his dad a year ago. It’d break me, at 36 (dad turns 60 in a few days, flying back for a celebration), let alone 29 and with the tens of thousands looking at me. for me it’s not something you would get over easily.

Let’s not forget he played a matter of days after losing his father. 

I respect him for that and kicking on, as much as I want to I just don’t rate him as a player unfortunately.

Mate honestly I was mixing players up. I thought we were talking about Kean missing training and meetings 3 times.

I should check what thread I’m in before posting.

Enjoy Matt, I'm hitting the big six-0 next April, unsure whether to throw a party or climb into a small hole and cry a lot; I suspect it'll be taken out of my hands.

Kean.

think I’m getting thread mixed up haha. Our club and players are that messed up I don’t know where I am.

Ah ok. I thought he was just last for training or something. Not sure though. 
 

ive not been on time for work since I got back off my holidays in October. Hope my boss isn’t a secret TT member. 
 

my Dad is 70 in July, still much fitter than me at 35 and I still can’t beat him at golf. I can’t imagine losing him, horrible.

Yep. Mine was and it was a blast with close family at a top restaurant and I knew nothing about them all being there till about an hour after we'd arrived.

 

And did I say my next birthday pressie is tickets to our home against Chelsea?
