Burnley (Home) Monday 13 September

The soft schedule continues with Burnley at home.  We had 34% possession last match and that won't work at home against Burnley.  I am interested to see how Rafa sets us up and orders the players to play knowing Burnley will be sat back.  Hopefully the knock DCL had isn't too bad and we get Mina/Godfrey/others back healthy.

 

                            Pickford

     Coleman Holgate Godfrey Digne

         Iwobi Doucoure Allan Gray

                 Richarlison DCL

Think Rafa has shown some flexibility in tactics. I’d like a 4-3-3 with Dom, Richy and Gray encouraged to stay further forward. Would start Keane over Holgate because Burnley will look to hurt us at set pieces.

                     Pickford 

coleman  Keane    Mina     Digne 

                        Allan 

       Doucoure             Iwobi 

Gray                 DCL           Richarlison

 

If Godfrey is fit, wouldn’t mind him in for either CB or even a RB to add height.

Coleman hasn’t put a foot wrong yet so for me he stays in he looks a lot fitter this season obviously he won’t be able to play 2 games a week so rest him in cup games.

Holgate, Mina and Keane to sit as a 3 as I expect us to have plenty of the ball here. Digne push on with Richarlison to come central with DCL.

Bench,

Begovic, Godfrey, Branthwaite, Kenny, Gomes, Gbamin, James, Townsend, Rondon

Niels is on loan mate unfortunately.

This would actually be a good game for James to play as we should actually see more possession, they're the only team in the league that have less possession than us!  However I don't see that happening.

We had 65% possession last season but put in a poor performance in a 2-1 defeat after being 2 down in 25 minutes.  In that game Holgate was right back but Coleman came on and made a big difference providing us some attack on the right.  The difference between then and now so far as the right side goes is then we had Davies playing out on the right while now we'll have more attacking intent and pace from Townsend.  We were also missing Doucoure on that day actually I don't even want to compare the two sides as we played such a dire sluggish performance in that game and I'd expect a lot more pace and energy here.

                    Pickford

Holgate/Godfrey   Keane  Mina    Digne

                  Allan      Doucoure

 Townsend         Richarlison      Gray

                      DCL

Gone with the attacking pace, Richarlison just in behind DCL and Gray and Townsend on the wings.  Doucoure box to box getting stuck in all over again.  If Godfrey is fit I'd like him to be playing, either in Centre back or right back. 

McNeil on their left is the main concern so I'd probably favour Godfrey as the better defender of the two even if he's not as comfortable pushing up the wing on that side.

Kenny must be penned in to start this game, otherwise there was no point in keeping him.

He would have had suitors being on a low wage and low transfer fee.

Only natural RB we have if Coleman’s out, so he has to play or there’s no future having him.

Have you seen anything about Godfrey being fit I've seen no training clips this week.

Just been onto the fantasy Football site and if you try to sign him it tells you he has 75% chance of playing.  No injury given it just says lack of match fitness. So I don't know what's going on there. 😱

Covid isn’t it looks like he’s had it bad.

Rondon and James struggling and no sign of Richarleson or did I miss him. 

Noticed James as well but didn't think he was as bad. That last jog both of them are moving their shoulders far too much compared up Gbamin. 

No idea where Richarlison is.

fuckin hell lads, 3 minutes of training video and we've drawn conclusions on the fitness of our squad!!

Rondon didn't look the most eager trainer, I'd imagine he'll get some game time on Monday but not a massive amount.

James probably happy to have another Spanish speaking South American to joke around with, him and Mina always seem like their having a great crack.

So you can't judge fitness on a short video, but you can judge eagerness?

Eagerness is immedietely apparent while fitness needs a longer look, so I'd say yes.

The video is a longer look, not just a snippet of him warming up, it's a little bit of everything. At the end of it he's clearly knackered, and throughout you can tell he's struggling.

As his eagerness goes. I don't see how anyone can judge he's not trying based on the video, he's not given up and he's forcing himself to try and keep up.

Not seen the video, was commenting theoretically.

Ah, fair enough. In the vid the last jog @3:20 is very telling, his posture/form has gone out the window.

Mina, James and Gbamin back in training too.

Rondon looks like he's struggling, could be a few weeks before his fitness is there.

In all fairness all 3 of them looked like they were flagging at the end on the jog in, I don’t know what the temperature was like in Liverpool but Monday Tuesday and Wednesday it was 30 degrees here, so if you had similar that could be a contributing factor especially if you’re not completely up to speed. I’ve no doubt Rondon will sort his fitness out his games based on aggression and hard-work. What I would like to see if given the opportunity is a fit James putting a full shift in if only to prove he can do it.

Pissed off to tell you the truth, it takes Rondon a full 1 minute and 32 seconds to put his boots on and tie his laces whereas it only used to take Moise Kean 49 seconds and we sold him! Honestly don't know what Brands was thinking and the sooner he's out of the club the better.

Oh god all I thought of then was Rondon ready to come on as a sub without shin pads like Sidibe did 😂😂

Hoping Dom is fit as we need someone strong and athletic up there against these lot. Dropping out of the England matches was precautionary I presume.

First match up in the ground for a long time and I can’t wait to see the boys go out there and smash it. So many new faces for me to see as well!

Don't expect too much, this is not going to be easy.

This is a bit of a must win for me as the trip to Villa Park next will be a difficult one, hoping that the crowd getting behind the team (there's still that buzz about being back, plus the fact it's at night) carries us across any threat that Burnley pose. 

Holding out for a wild one that James plays, but expect it to be Rondon who in seeing tonight for the first time.

Internet in our place has crashed for a couple of hours now, currently in a local bar but nearest showing football a couple of miles away in the resort and hire car went back today (picking another one up tomorrow) and two miles is out of my range on foot. 

Waffle aside, MOTM may be  impossible for me to post, do we have a volunteer?

I’d like to see James get 15-20 minutes but I fear if we do see that it’s because we are a goal down, and I don’t want that.

If we can't beat the likes of Burnley at home, then what's the rest of our season going to be like?

Don't Forget,  We are Everton and we always shit out against the teams we should beat. A lot of our players get nosebleeds at the thought of getting too high in the league.

I hope we win 7-0 and top the league on goal difference, but I will be very happy with a 1-0.
