I have no idea. Haven't seen enough of him to even come up with an opinion. I hope he does well because he's our player. Does he have a history of playing in centre defence?

He did play there for a bit in Hungary but that's hardly an indicator of quality.

Yeah, it's a lot better to judge him over 20 minutes in a pre-season game. :)

I don't think he was doing those things because it's a friendly either! Keane must have kept looking left thinking where's he going now.

I think he was, but it doesn't really matter, he isn't a CB.

Does he think he's a hardman though? I've always thought it was the fans that have built him up as that just because he's got a few tattoos and scowles a bit. Much like we made Heitinga out to be a hardman through no fault of his own, then slagged him off when he wasn't one.

Exactly. He's always been a cultured ball playing type rather than a destroyer. If anything, his bad tackles are a testament to that fact.

He's never been sent off either, okay once for throwing his chewing gum at an opponent, which is stupid but hardly the act of a ruthless midfield enforcer.

Think you've just made that up mate tbh.

He's not once during his time at Everton looked like 'a cultured ball player' in any way, shape or form.

I wasn't talking about quality but playing style. He's comfortable on the ball and not cut out to be an enforcer. And I've seen more of Besic than you.

How can he be a cultured ball player without ever having shown a good range of passing? Good for you, medal is in the post.

Well, it's cos you've just made it up. He passes it both long and short, look up the stats or just watch him play. Again, we're not talking about quality here (so don't tell me that most of his long balls aren't accurate), only playing style.


He's not a hardman and has never been, that's all.

A video from 2013 of him playing against mainly no marks with Bosnia... That showed me.

Okay, have a lie down and then come back and read what I've written, and can you then please spell it out for me, cos I'm thick: what the fuck is your point? That he is a hardman?

Are you simple?

When have I ever mentioned the words hard man?

You called him a cultured ball player. I said he's not.

It's really very easy to follow.

Then why the fuck are you arguing with me? Seriously, do you ever read the posts that you reply to? Or just pick out a few words and react?
