New season ahead

Recommended Posts

Although I am looking forward to beginning the new season, it’s not easy to be optimistic right now.  We’ve looked toothless in every preseason match, against mediocre opponents.  We’re yet again looking to very late transfer hopes.

And I confess that my outlook is especially soured by the puzzling sale of Lookman.  Yes, of course, Silva “knows football,” but I thought I saw real multiple skills in Lookman’s play, including clever dribbling, assists, shotmaking, willingness to take shots.  Was he unwilling to help the fullbacks defend, far inferior to all of Bernard, Richarlison, and Walcott in that regard?  Lookman seemed a more promising winger than Bernard or Walcott. We need goals.  We’ve sold a promising goalscorer.

Lookman wasn't  that good at helping his  fullback, and never really showed that much when he played, for me he comes inside too quickly where the field is packed with defenders, and didn't give an option to play the ball out wide, and his finishing wasn't that great. I like him but was never convinced he was going to produce enough ( same as Walcott I guess then ! )

Don’t know which Lookman you’ve been watching.

Same Lookman you’ve watched, but as with any number of players — not just Lukaku and Gana — different fans see different things.

I’ll try to avoid a lengthy debate with you, as Lookman no longer plays for Everton; but to some extent I’m comparing Lookman to Bernard and especially the consistently disappointing Walcott.  I think I recall Lookman being aggressive enough, in his limited appearances, to take opportunities presented to him (unlike the strangely timid Walcott), and strike the ball well (unlike Walcott, who regularly fluffs at the ball or hits it meekly).  Bernard offers more than Walcott, but I’m not persuaded he’d actually score more goals than Lookman, given roughly equal playing time over a season.  Lookman is a clever dribbler; true, probably tries to do too much at times.  As does Bernard.

So over the next few years, I think Lookman would have been more productive offensively than Bernard, and much more productive than Walcott.  If you’re saying have I watched how useless Lookman is defensively, I concede that my impression is he’s less effective there.

Silva says he wants to buy a winger.  I’ll simply hope we get someone more goal-productive than Walcott and Bernard.

I agree with a Lookman. He had a lot to offer and I can only assume, there was ethic or personality problems.

He wasn’t a winger. He was a tricky clever player, had a ferocious shot, and wasn’t scared to shoot either... unlike most Everton players over the last twenty years.

I think they needed to try for another year, see if he has that breakthrough season. But somethings just not clicked for him here.

I thought the same and Silva led him and us to believe he had a great future here, but when you look at the opportunities he had to prove himself last season they were virtually none existent, quite a few weeks he didn’t even make the bench. 

Some pundits believe that will prove to be the worst piece of business we could have possibly done this season, makes you wonder if we needed the money.

I couldn’t disagree more really, I think Lookman offered nothing at all last season. He didn’t attempt to beat a man anywhere near often enough as he could have, didn’t come close to offering as much as Walcott, let alone any other winger we have. Doesn’t seem to have improved from when we signed him. I think if he offered anything productive Marco and Marcel would have wanted to keep him. I respect your opinion though, and as you say, we see different things.

I think he had an opportunity every day at Finch Farm. I’d say we cut our losses on him, only we made a nice profit.

I don't think it matters how hard you work in training with Silva if you're a kid. Both Kenny and Davies should have had more minutes, and DCL only got a proper chance after Silva gave up on converting Richarlison into a striker.

Agreed. He did wel in Germany which bar Dortmund and Bayern is championship quality.  Remember the 11th place Martinez year we blitzed Wolfsburg who got 2nd or 3rd.  4-1 home and away and they had de bruyne!!

Relevance? 

He played 1896 minutes across 33 games last year. Under Silva he played 975 across 16. No youth player got more minutes except Lookman 601 up from 169. We had Kenny, Holgate, Beni, Davies, Vlasic, DCL (although roughly the same) all do well enough the season before yet none of them improved their minutes, two leaving just to get some.

The relevance is you made a statement that if your a kid it doesn’t matter how hard you work because silva won’t play you. Well he did play him and had enough confidence to give him the armband over far more experienced players. Well kenny has been loaned out, beni did last season aswell as Holgate and both Lookman and vlasic got sold. Do you think the answer is he either doesn’t rate them or they need seasoning and send them off on loan? Oh wait that doesn’t fit your agenda. silva just doesn’t like young players. That’s why he spent £40 mill on twenty one year old Richarlison and wants to spend £36 mill on a nineteen year old

I didn't say full stop did I? You're argument is pathetic now fuck sake.

He won't play you over a senior player. Davies come in got motm and was dropped straight away, same for Kenny. DCL come in done well yet Richarlison and Tosun kept getting given another chance over him. The others all left for minutes as they weren't getting a chance. 

We had a torrid run but Silva stuck with his favourites. He's not given the youth a chance other than to cover injuries and even though they've done well they've not kept their spot other than DCL but that was more a reluctant acceptance.

Youth a chance?! He has only been here a year! 

DCL came in and was toothless so why is it a surprise he tried someone else? 

Kenny got dropped because Coleman is better and Silva was right because once he was fully up to speed Coleman was as good as he ever has been at the end of last season and it looks to be the same again this season.

Davies was also inconsistent and again you cant argue that at the end of the season we were a lot more balanced than we had been at any point in the season with the 3 older heads of Gomes, Gueye and Schneiderlin.

Unfortunately the kids we have just arent good enough to breakthrough and play week in week out at the moment and the younger ones shouldnt be introduced when the chips are down as they were for large parts of the middle of last season. 

DCL was far from toothless, it was clear he was the best for the system yet Silva was hesitant and kept trying to force Tosun in the system or Richarlison into a new role. 

How was Davies inconsistent. He come in and was motm during a period were we had been in dire straits yet Gana waltzed straight back in after the transfer window shut. Similar happened to Kenny with Coleman. There was even the injured Baines decision over him. 

Coleman had large periods were he didn't deserve to play. Same could be said for most of them. Yet Silva stuck with his favourites regardless, we were dying for something different and a bit more fight yet just plodded along.

If any manager was told you have three years in the job don’t worry I’m sure they would blood younger players for the long term but unfortunately they don’t and can’t do it because if it doesn’t work out in the short term they get sacked. And it starts from people moaning about managers not taking responsibility because they’ve lost pre  season friendlies largely consisting of a youth squad. Oh the irony 

I'd already made this point before preseason. Even said had Alladyce used the kids more he might have kept the job.

Far from toothless? He misses more chances than he scores! I bet Richie scored as many as a CF as DCL did despite far less games.

I like him but Davies is always inconsistent. Gueye had his best season at the club. 

Same issues with Kenny. Coleman wasnt at his best but he needed the games and look at him now. I think that decision was vindicated.

Looking at the big chances missed to scored DCL held his own. He also brings the other players into the game whereas Richarlison is more selfish. 

How can you be inconsistent across such a short period. He started when Gomes was getting fit (6 of the first 8), 1 over Christmas, and then 4 matches when Gana had his head wobbled. From memory he was motm on here for two of those last 4. He deserved to keep his place, especially with Gana pushing for a move and him and Gomes not working. Kenny was motm one game played the next then dropped. Any excuse the kids get dropped straight away without given a chance to rectify. It's poor management.

Didn't say he played less than Tosun. Said Tosun and Richarlison played more than they should over DCL. 

Tosun and Richarlison were used over him at the start, DCL only started 4 of the first 16. Eventually Silva settled on DCL. He took too long to make that decision. Me and a few others were initially laughed at for saying DCL should be the starter due to the new system at the start of the season. Shouldn't take Silva so long to make a decision the average fan can spot.

You’re not the average fan 😉

Maybe he improved in training? I think this shows the opposite than you’re implying about Silva. He doesn’t make a knee jerk decision gives it time but will make changes and give youth a chance if it improves the system or team. Let’s not forget DCL isn’t a goal machine so you need to weigh up the pros and cons of him playing and ensure there are other players around him that can get the goals of DCL doesn’t.

Adrian Durham and TalkSport literally base their whole station on winding people up and getting them to have a meltdown on air. I was listening a few days ago and they had an Aston Villa fan on there saying that they would get the top four this season due to the signings they'd made. 

Durham himself has been banging on about West Ham being "nailed on" for the top four for ages. It's all just to get people rattled and call up, there's no actual intelligence or substance to his ramblings.

DCL misses more than he scores. I dont disagree that he can bring people into play more than Richarlison but we needed goals and we werent scoring more or doing any better at that point with him or Tosun. It also allowed us to get games into Bernard with Walcott on the other side.

Davies is always inconsistent, are you really suggesting he isnt? He is more inconsistent the deeper he plays too. Gana and Gomes did work though and that was a big part of the reason we improved later in the season. You cant just keep chopping and changing every game because someone had a crap game. Kenny also came in to give Coleman a rest. He hadnt taken his spot, it was a chance for the latter to refill his batteries and it worked. If anything its excellent management to be able to get someone in to do well while your starter rests and then when that starter comes back into the team they play their best football of the season. 

Anyway its pointless arguing about this because you seem too keen to see the negative in Silva that it isnt worth repeating the same points.

Aguero aside DCL held his own in comparison to other strikers goals scored to big chances missed. 

The Davies inconsistent argument is just odd. He only got a game when the others weren't available, which is poor management considering he needs minutes to develop and it wasn't like the two in midfield were doing enough to justify their spot. Davies came in and played well (2 motm out of 4 games), he wasn't dropped because of consistency, he was dropped as the Gana episode was over. Similarly for Kenny he needs minutes and Coleman wasn't setting the world alight either. 

Was gonna reply but I'd just be repeating my last post so I might as well just quite myself again.

Seems like Silva made the right choice in playing Gana and Coleman over Davies and Kenny, as the former really came into form the second half of the season.

Arteta is a Gomes type player not great at tackling.

McCarthy would spend 1/3 of the season injured.

Fellaini would spend most games nursing a yellow card, and about 5/6 games suspended.

You must have the shortest memory of any fan. Arteta is a good tackler and gets stuck in. He is similar to Gomes who also used to play further up before coming to us. Arteta was a great pivot, with Carsley sitting. Then Arteta sat and Fellaini was box to box. 

Because Gana doesn't get a yellow. 

As for McCarthy he got injured giving his all for the club, something Gana only put the effort in when PSG come knocking (even then he half arsedly jogged back). 

Piss poor argument, clutching at best. Gana's not a patch on any of them, unless not risking injury because you're not trying hard enough is a talent.

I'm positive about Brands and have supported every player who gives their all and takes responsibility. Think it's a joke the way some of our fans are going on about a bloke who didn't even try his best, offered nothing going forward (actually worse than nothing, he stifled our attacks) and defensively was all over the shop. Nevermind forcing the move.

Arteta played mostly on the wing for us, and if you compare his tackling stats to Gana's then there is only one winner, and its not Arteta. I love Arteta he is one of my all time favorite players, he always be the best little Spaniard we know, but he is not a destroyer like Gana.

McCarthy did his hamstrings with us, then properly fucked them up reporting for Ireland duty when he was told it would seriously damage them in the long term. 

I have never, never seen Gana pull out of a tackle or leave anything on the pitch, he always gave his all, one of the reasons he is so loved by the vast majority of Everton fans.

Show me his positioning stats, oh wait. How many tackles does the best centre mids take? I've no idea why people cling to it to the tackle stats, who looks at a player and asks how many tackles he makes. You should be looking at his positioning, how he makes the tackle/(or even should they make the tackle), how strong they are in it, what happens to the ball after it. Many factors, most of which are ignored by Gana's mindless ball chasing. 

Doesn't mean he wasn't a very good player before his injury. Nearly every position has been improved on, unfortunately cm isn't one of them. Gana can't hold a candle to any of them. 

His tacked lack conviction, he gets his foot on it but doesn't make its his, (Keane and Schneiderlin both guilty of this as well). Even some of his biggest fans have said about his running back lacking urgency. Also he upped his effort after the PSG bid, so before then he'd been playing within his comfort zone not giving his all for two and a half years.

So PSG didn’t come in for him because of how he was playing then? They came in for him because they knew how he was going to play.... after they had bid?

Wow,they have some kind of amazing scouting team.

If these new runours come out true.

Keane, Gbamin and lemina, then i think my optimism is going to rocket a bit. Seems like the team have been working hard to find targets and have found the right ones so far. We need a solid defender now and possible a right back.

But that should hopefully solve our attacking issues.

Of course it’s a big IF, they come through as team.
