The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool

Not impressed with our transfers other than Gueye? Are you kidding? You not seen Pickford, Keane, Schneiderlin, etc play? I think people are forgetting a certain scouse boy too.

Ross has fucked us over and embarrassed us when we were all expecting great news of a top signing. Hes going to be coming back to a lot of disgruntled people on Merseyside.

Lets not forget Sandro has looked decent and comes with a bit of a pedigree and this new Croation kid is handy, so lets try and not panic just yet. Most of our business was done early and good business at that. Moshiri/Walsh now totally have one job to do in the next four months... find a proper out and out striker, and fill the gaps in defence. No excuses. It would have been good to have done that business in this window, and maybe we were just about to before Ross fucked us over, but we havent. So imo we have to get behind our lads now. Support DCL, Sandro etc. and put this embarrassment behind us.

Oh, and Fuck you Ross. How could you? Greedy, horrible none-Evertonian. Enjoy your time rotting in the reserves Rot Barkley.

And hes another 6 months older. Surely between now and January we can find a decent target man, somewhere in the entire world. Maybe even fucking Super Walsh can manage that at least.

She will be happy with anywhere, as shes been regularly taken up the arsenal, for the past few years. ;)

Mate, everyone here will understand your frustration. Most of us feel a level of it too. But in all honesty, yes, we should have replaced Lukaku, or rather added to the strikers we already have with a more number 9 type striker, but we have actually had a very good window. Imagine, if last night, at 10:30 Uncle Jim would have said, "and news just in from Merseyside... Everton have just signed Pickford, Keane, Klaassen, Sigurdsson and Rooney and Vlasic for 140 million odd to add to several excellent young players already added to the squad." But because nothing major happened late, it seems like a damp squib. But there is no denying, we have had an excellent window - shite last day, but an excellent window. We have four months now to get a target striker (assuming we dont do REALLY well with what we have in the next few months!), and if we dont, then I will be behind you moaning at Moshiri, but come on - be a bit more realistic and truthful with facts and less so fucking consistently depressing :)

...we have Sandro,Klaassan,Rooney,Siggy but the new croatian plus Barkley are all basically the same type of player, how can we even fit them into a system with no one running from deep, and if the central striker is always on the right wing?, Rooney and Sandro both run back into midfield looking for the ball,, we wont be able to stretch teams or play through them, thus nullifying having 3 number 10's on the pitch at the same time...

Vlasic is more of a versatile winger.
DCL is still a bit of an unknown, but his size will make him more of a number 9 in the long run I reckon.
Rooney drifts from 9, 8, 10
Klaassen, again, we dont really know much of, but for Ajax yes, he could be considered a number 10, but again floats about a bit, but can do a job in mid too.
Sigurdsson I would say is a number 10, that has played central, but also wider (generally mid to left to front).

A good player is a good player, and we will often play most of them together and we should. I hate to use the comparison, but Liverpool play with a million midfielders and it works very well for them, Barcelona, the Spain team played for a year with very rarely an out and out striker, but with often 5 or 6 mids. Its not what you pigeon hole a player to be, but how good the player is, and if playing them adds to the quality of the "team".

Vlasic, Bolasi, Kev, Lennon, Baines and Coleman bombing on, DCL played wide - we do have a bit of width/pace, our problem is, we very rarely exploit it, as its obviously drilled into the team to stay tight and progress through mid, which says more about our managers tactical approach than our team.

Im totally behind Ronald, and will give him time, but if you were to put our current squad in the hands of a Sir Alex, it would be a TOTALLY different playstyle, with the same players, no doubt, in a four four two, with our back four, schnieds OR gana in the middle as a stopper - Rooney or Sigurdsson in the Scholes hole, and two of DCL, Rooney up top, with proper chalky boot width coming from a Bolasi/Vlasic/Sandro wide left, and Kev/Bolasi/Lennon wide right, overlapping with our full backs - a la Baines/Pienaar (on both sides) 2 out and out strikers, one linker, one def mid and a solid 4 that NEVER changes in front of a fucking excellent keeper.


Coleman ---------- Keane ---------- Jags ---------- Baines

Gana or Schneiderlin
Sandro -------------------------------------------------- Vlasic
Sigurdsson or MS

Rooney or GS ----------
------------------ DCL or WR

With the "wide mids" being wingers rather than "midfielders" and the "forwards" being "strikers" rather than all ACMs running around like headless chickens.

With the same players, we will no doubt be something like:


Coleman ---------- Keane ---------- Jags ---------- Baines

Gana ------ Schneiderlin
Vlasic or Sandro --- DCL --- Rooney

...and no doubt play are more centric, less stretching game. I think we need to mix it up a bit.

However, Koeman knows his stuff, and if it all comes off, Im sure we will do well, but he has to be backed up by our chairman, and all this fannying around within the club has top stop.

I've said this for a while now, we really need to up our play style and tactical nouse. We have decent players in the squad. Not as many as we wanted, and in positions that we thought pertinent, but we have a very healthy choice of first 11. But seriously, sometimes our lack of "football" ability astounds me. Our short passing and movement, awareness, passing into space (short and long), running off the ball, speed of close down, circumstantial shape transformations, etc are not there, bar the very basics. We really need to implement better coaching, so it really does get through to the players. Disclaimer: this bit is not a joke: the playstyle of some far lesser teams, like Watford, Bournemouth, even Swansea is often superior to ours at the moment. Even Huddersfield play some great football - its just the lesser teams obviously have lesser players and will leak in more goals, or not score as many, mainly down to quality of player.

Let's face it, we've done well to assemble a fairly reasonable squad, lets have a huge shake up, and spend some decent money getting some TOP CLASS training/tactical people in, not just good old ex-blues and ambassadors, but some of the cream of Europes finest coaches. If we want to be big time, we have to set up as big time, and playing noob-ball wont get us into the top 4, whether we bring in a Giroud or not in January.

Not this discussion AGAIN. Can we please have this "Where's our new Striker" discussion at the end of January please?
