Unsworth needs to go.

He picks a team to win, not to develop.

This. He tends to pick older players who should be out on loan (or released, in some cases) because he knows can win that way.

It stunts the development of those players AND our most talented U18s, who should be turning out regularly for the U23s because they'll learn more at that level.

Or Simms ain't all that

Maybe not.

But the point of the U23s isn't to win, it's to build players that contribute to the Everton first team. Playing Niasse, who isn't (and shouldn't be) in the first team picture, contributes nothing to the cause.

Brands needs the autonomy to sack Unsworth and rebuild the academy system. His expertise matters. This is a thing that Dutch clubs tend to do better than English clubs.

Getting rid of him makes sense but him playing for the u21s every 6 weeks isnít going to keep him fit. He was fully fit after pre-season an no-one wanted him.

Anyway, heíll soon be gone. Think thatís him and Martina, Baines and a couple of others thatíll be gone by the summer.

Baines.  :'(

I hope he stays involved with the club in some capacity.
