Title: Mirallas
Post by: everton1952 on December 30, 2017, 06:20:10 PM
Since Allardyce took over, Mirallas has been picked for only one game, the dead rubber at Apollon. He has not even been sub since then. Does he train with the first team squad in which he holds the 11 shirt? I cannot remember any press conference where Sam was asked about Mirallas in the context of the usual questions about who is available for the following games. It would be interesting to hear the manager's answer if someone asked him about the availability of Mirallas. They are paying his wages and until he leaves will carry on doing so until 2020.

It could be that Mirallas is injured, the club doesn't always tell us all the players that are injured especially if they are seen as quite peripheral.

Otherwise I guess with Bolasie back plus Lennon, Lookman and Vlasic who can all play on the wings, there is little room in the team for Mirallas and with supposedly Galatasaray and Olympiakos interested in him then we are probably looking to offload in January.

If he’s not shifted and replaced by the end of next summer then it’s an egregious failure of duty by Walshy.

I like Mirallas ability wise but he's obviously  a shite behind the scenes and not a team player. I'd expect he will be going in this window, we should get some money for him which will help the wage bill and getting someone else in who wants to put it all in for the shirt.

He stinks of West Ham
Title: Re: Mirallas
Post by: Gash on December 30, 2017, 06:55:35 PM
Thinks he's better than he is. I stuck up for him when he wasn't getting games under Martinez and said he was the type of player we were needing but then when he gets a chance he doesn't make the most of it. Seems to have a lot of fall outs as well, I think he's fallen out with every manager here and I wouldn't be surprised if he's already had words with Allardyce.

Time to move on. I don't think he ever recovered from the penalty incident. Kevin Mirallas got the better side of the deal, he's done far better out of Everton than Everton got out of him. I certainly wouldn't be sorry to see the back of him.

Shame really, because I always liked Mirallas. I remember him carrying the fight a few years ago (Liverpool and Villa iirc) under Martinez, when everyone else seemed to have given up.

But he's become increasingly unreliable and unproductive and seems to have a terrible attitude to go with it. Time to go now.
Title: Re: Mirallas
Post by: Ross on December 30, 2017, 07:00:52 PM
He should have been gone at the end of the season he fucked about over that penalty.

Hopefully with it being a World Cup year he’ll feel he needs to be playing more and move on in January, it’ll be best for both parties now.

In a way I'm disappointed to see him go ,he should have been great for us. Occasionally we'd see him combine well with Lukaku and Barkley but not often enough. Time to move on.

This.

One of my biggest pain-points as an Everton supporter has been the derbies, so to see someone get stuck in, in the right way, bought Mirallas a lot of favour with me.

But the amount of times he has not been arsed or has not shown his quality or has not been brave enough to run at players has slowly eroded this to the point where I would prefer him to leave now.

Guaranteed to score a worldy against us if he goes to WHU though. You have been warned...

Just as a counterpoint to all the inevitable derogatory posts; I like him as a player. Always have done and still do.

For a team so lacking in attacking intent and goal threat, not to have him in the squad (even if it is just on the bench) makes no sense to me.
Title: Re: Mirallas
Post by: KoemansNumberTens on December 30, 2017, 07:22:28 PM
Odd player. When he came he was full of tricks and pace. He now doesn't do anything. Nothing bad but just no attempt at dribbling or invention.

Only time he's really looked motivated is when he was being linked with a move upwards. Even that fell apart when he missed that penalty against West Brom

Hes definitely deadwood. Wasted what could have been a very good career by being only half bothered

I used to like him myself but he's offered absolutely nothing for the best part of 18 months now.

And it's not like he's hasn't been given a chance to prove himself.

He isn't a threat anymore though, that's the problem. He's got 8 goals and 8 assists in the league in the last 2 1/2 seasons, that's hardly a goal threat. Coincides with him being poor for the last 2 1/2 seasons as well.

He just doesn't even look like a winger anymore. Kind of plays like a really bad Xavi while stood on the wing. All safety first possession stuff. They used to call him The Belgium Ronaldo. He looked brilliant when he first turned up. Be delighted if we got 10m for him

I've had this discussion many times on here. The gist being, take those stats and run them against minutes played. Then analyse how often those minutes exceed 20 minutes per game. In that time you specify he has probably started one game in 4.

I would love to know his numbers for shots on target/goal because he has been hitting posts and goalies a lot in that time.

Even this season when he played we've displayed a better attacking intent.

You've kind of backed up the point for getting rid of him there. There's a reason he hasn't been getting games......

I would love to know his numbers for shots on target/goal because he has been hitting posts and goalies a lot in that time.

I can't think of too many times he's hit the post but it's kind of irrelevant as you don't get any goals for hitting the post or the goalie.
Even this season when he played we've displayed a better attacking intent.

Can't say I agree with that. You still rate him and that's fair enough, most people did at some point, I certainly did but it's been a long time since he did anything good for us and he's showing no sign of changing that. He wanted away previously and he's certainly not looked to keen on staying here.
Title: Re: Mirallas
Post by: Lxxx on December 30, 2017, 08:30:27 PM
There's only so many times you can see him receive the ball on the left, run across the front of the defenders before laying it off to either Schneiderlin/Gueye or if he's feeling adventurous maybe spray it wide to Kenny/Lennon. Rinse and repeat.

He's on decent wages until the summer of 2020.

Finding someone willing to take that on for a player a mid table Prem team doesn't want is always going to be a challenge.

I remember I think it was the 2-2 against the shite where he looked amazing, done his hamstrings and never really was the same.

Deffo an attitude problem. On his day he is a top class player, doesn't seem arsed now which is a shame.

A more consistent Mirallas would sort out our attacking problems no end.

Don't think he is arsed anymore though.
Title: Re: Mirallas
Post by: AllyBlue14 on December 30, 2017, 08:32:44 PM

A little misleading, given he has only started 35 matches during the last 2 1/2 seasons. 8 goals and 8 assists is actually a decent return based on that number of starts. While he has been here, he has been our only consistent goal threat from the wing.

But even I, probably one of his biggest supporters, thinks it is time for him to move on now. Hopefully we can get 7 mill or something for him this January.

He was the best player on the field that day.caused the shite a load of problems.It wasn't his hamstring that went it was that rat suarez went over the top and done his ankle he went off before half time and our momentum having come back from 2 down went with him.Wish we could see  more performances like that off him.

Still like him, provided us with a lot of great moments.

People had him down as a big time charlie because of his life style but he chose us over Arsenal five years  ago and has never kicked up a fuss to leave (up until six months ago) even when he was at the top of his game.

An inconsistent player (like most wingers) who turned up in the bigger games and provided us with some top moments of quality.

Wish him nothing but the very best.

Was promising / good for 2 and a half years.

Done barely anything since then and doesn’t seem to have the acceleration over 5 yards to gain space to shoot / cross.

Bit of shame it ended like this but he's hardly played these last 18 months so time to go, brilliant player on his day. Say what you want but he will have contributed more than many other wingers weve had at the club, like Lennon, bolasie, vlasic, delefeou by the time they've finished with us.
Title: Re: Mirallas
Post by: Risky on January 07, 2018, 03:26:35 AM
Decent player especially at first, but never quite had the consistency or the attitude to achieve more than he did.  Some of his finishing was clinical, but he'd also be totally anonymous for runs of games too.

Last couple of years it looks a bit like his legs have gone and he's not got the sharpness to create space and get himself in to goalscoring opportunities.

Bit of a bellend, don't hate him though.
Title: Re: Mirallas
Post by: Trublue on January 07, 2018, 03:28:51 AM
A little clear out taking place of players unwilling to fight for team, club and their place. He has been under 4 managers now, I don't think he has ever finished 90 minutes?  Obviously no manager has trusted him? Some nice goals over the years, but little else. Wage bill reduced too.

Was really excited when we first signed him and in the first 2 and a half seasons he was a real asset.

But since that penalty farce vs. West Brom he hasn't really been the same player. He'd come with a moment of creativity from time to time but I guess it's best for all involved that he goes back to Olympiakos.

As if. No-one pays a £4m loan fee for 5 months of football, as well as footing his wages too.
Unless they’re not footing the £70k/week, which let’s face it they probably couldn’t afford anyway in the Greek league.

Who knows, but those figures don’t add up.

In Greece its being reported as 3 million euros loan for 6 months (including the players wages) with an option to buy for 6 million euros in the summer. However they are quoting sources in England as no information has come from Olympiakos yet.

Not a huge amount of money but the biggest gain is probably getting him off the wage bill and out of the locker room.

So we’ve got rid of two players who have had zero effect on the first team this season and swapped them for a goalscorer, which is badly needed, for cost neutral on fees and wages.

Sensible work for a change.

One of the few players we have that can always pose a goal threat.  But always a selfish player, so many rumors of a poor attitude which eventually you must believe are true.

Time's up, good luck elsewhere Kevin.  Definitely did not live up to potential here at Everton.

Used to really like Miralles been reluctant to to slag him off but this year i've come to the conclusion he has far too big a sense of his own importance to the club and the world in general, he's had several chances at a fresh start and not really been arsed.

More proof for the Ross was the messiah crew. ..Ross was generally shite and never lived up to his early potential at all.

But Mirra was always slated for being shit 😅....glad to see the back of both now tbh.

Morgs next ??...I hope at least he's been shite by his own standards.

Perhaps, but remember that a lot of those appearances from Barkley were when he was 19/20 and still finding his way a bit.

Overall though, Mirallas did have a couple of productive seasons, shame he wasted the last two years as that should have been his prime.

Been a big fan of Mirallas throughout. But I guess he fell out with almost all the managers and don't see any passion in him anymore, so it is the best for both the parties that he has moved on. Wish him all the best.

I'm pleased to see him leaving as he hasn't contributed anything for quite a while now.

Having said that, I wouldn't just slaughter him. He did provide a lot of good memories when at his best.

It doesn't need to be one or the other. You can think it's right to move him on, whilst also appreciating what he's done and some of his best moments at the club.
