Sigurdsson
Keane
Klaassen
Walcott
Schneiderlin
Williams

Wouldn't miss any of them and clear a fair amount of the wage bill, but would have to take a decent loss on most of them.

Nothing like writing off a player we just bought two days ago. Some absolute mental posts come off your keyboard these days.

We can spend as much money as we want on all the quality that we can get and we won't finish much better than 10th with The Fraud. He doesn't allow anybody with quality to shine through.  It's all percentages. Soul destroying, boring shit. It's doesn't matter if you spend 5M or 35M, he expects the same job from the player.

Every game is an absolute chore. I really don't blame the West Ham fans anymore for calling it the West Ham way. This isn't the Everton way. I can't see myself looking forward to most of the games we play this season while our joke of a manger is in charge. What an absolute fallacy that man is.

So is Baines still alive?

The reports of the death of his career have been greatly underplayed

Other than Barry, we've still got the same keeper, defenders, defensive midfielders we had last season.

Our problem is more to do with building play and creating chances. A boxer who can't throw a punch is going to get a pasting, not because his defence isn't good enough.

Bumped into someone at the match today who I've not spoken with in a while and that's what he said, he's definitely got inside knowledge so it's quite likely.
Just said as soon as he's ready he will slot in to LB as they'd rather wait till the summer to sign a long term LB. Suppose that could all change if Sam's jobs is on the line.

He's pretty poor at LB from what I remember, and after a long lay-off he's not going to have got better.

However, he does at least have a left foot..

So is Baines done then?

I've never seen anything in Funes Mori to suggest he can play left back. He has a tenuous enough grasp on his natural position.

To be fair he has a point. He wouldn’t expect his captain to go charging out and neglect his defensive duties like that.

On the other hand we had a warning a few minutes earlier.

His whole back four and midfield two aren’t up to scratch at this level unfortunately. He’s having to work with a very poor group of players defensively.

Think we seriously need to ditch the 4-2-3-1 for good now, It hasn't been in any way as effective since Martinez's first season nearly 5 years ago. In all honesty, boring as it is in this modern age, we need to go 4-4-2 and utilise two wingers with 2 strikers

Oh really, have you heard a whisper somewhere?

Garbutt could also be in consideration, just needs a squad number.
