I worry about the Gbamin signing....looked devilishly slow/immobile from what little I ve seen.

Does "what little you've seen" equal <135 minutes on under 10 days' training camp with a new team in a new league in a new country after a lengthy African Cup of Nations run & telling his manager that he personally didn't feel fit enough to jump right into starting? Of something else?

He’s very quick. He wasn’t fit when he played as he’d been to the AFCON and hadn’t had a pre-season, but you could see he was quick.

Not a lot more tbh....that and probs 2 or 3 Bundesliga games-certainly didnt look rapid but I hope you guys are right as it's a key position for us.

Oh ye of little faith! j/k, I haven't seen much more than you tbh, but he has a "heat-seeking missile" component to him that I'm very anxious to see once fit. He's faster than you think, but probably not Gana (who is?)

The worry re: Gbamin is how badly his injury has affected his movement. Did read something saying it's a much more serious injury than many people think. Bloody typical Everton luck.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Yeah, I read a contradictory report that said full recovery is common, but that a strength weakness often remains.

If nothing else at least the last two games should finally have put to bed this ridiculous notion of Gylfi Sigurdsson playing cm.

Awful, awful, player. Can't wait til he's sold at a dramatic loss.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Moyes will play him all the time.

Realistically Gylfi isn't sellable. No-one will want to take on board that salary and he's a few years past his peak.

This is what I've been saying. Our options with him are limited.

1) sell/loan him for pennies on the dollar and surely still continue to have to pay most of his weekly wages, or

2) keep him for - fucking hell - 30 June 2022 when his contract expires, not getting a penny (pence?) for him but having all his wages come off the books.

Why do people keep saying this?

He’s the complete opposite of a moyes type player imo.

Can’t even sack a manager properly now.
