I'm amazed so many think Baines is past it.. ignoring his vital goal
talking about his deflected goal in Europe or did you mean goals.. If so that was years ago. Jagielka has scored more goals than Leighton the last 2 seasons Like Baines but as I see he has lost pace strengt and confidence. In my eyes one of our weaker links. He has been a great servant for this great club though

There's no way Garbutt is getting any game time. I get the feeling Koeman has shut the door on any more kids in this squad for this season. He said as much towards the end of last season.

.........................I'm not saying Garbutt should be in the squad but he's not a kid. In fact he's older than Barkley . Should be moving on ,not playing in the U23's.
We are special ,we are Everton.

Goal in Europe. Given nearly all his goals were set pieces and Rom took over pens and free kicks it's hardly a surprise he scores less these days. But he scored a vital goal. This season. Pace, strength and confidence are all subjective measures (so random opinion) unless you have some facts to back up your personal belief? And his key skill has always been great crosses, I've watched him do this several times this season, despite a lack of link man giving him the regular chances he used to get to put the ball in.
Would love access to the full metrics the club gets, I would lay money they would prove a few people wrong on him being slower or less effective. He's one of the fittest players at the club.

Baines should have long been replaced like jags shot.

Replaced by who?

He's head and shoulders above anyone we have at the club and he's probably still in the best 3 left backs in the league

We should've probably been looking at getting a left back in to provide good competition 18 months ago.

A quality fullback would set us back 50m as we've just seen with Kyle Walker.

That's Kyle Walker who only got 2 more assists than Baines last season and scored no goals while Baines got 2.

I reckon we're alright for now while we're still looking desperate for attacking players.

It's difficult when you don't have money (or even when you do) to commit significant resources to an area that's got a very good player there, when there are much more pressing areas.

Of course he is head and shoulders above  anyone else because there is no one else,the lad who went to the shite,Rose,Bertram there is 3 without trying he has been a good player but Been is the key word.

Is that what the shite payed for Robertson or was it 8.

I agree with competition yes
We also should have sorted a left midfielder out in martinez first season too

Robertson has the potential to be better, he isn't yet
Bertrand too, rose is decent but injury prone

So you'd actually have Robertson over Baines?

To be fair at one point we had Oviedo, Galloway and Garbutt who have all been championed at some point to take over when Baines has been injured. It's shown how difficult he is to replace
