I can imagine this will raise a few eyebrows but I feel I am noticing something that's happened in the team that is making things more and more negative.

The amount of times our defenders and midfielders pass back to Pickford is driving me insane when I am at the match. The fact is, he is an amazing kicker and if we had a target man or a speed merchant to chase on like Vardy, then I can understand it's use.

I just feel it's become an easy kopout for the team to not pass forward even more so. Koeman should tell the team to avoid the tactic.

Just to add, his kicking hasn't been as good lately either other than the odd one.

I can see your point.

We dont have the players to utilise or make the most of his kicking ability.

But that's not strictly his fault.

Defoe benefitted from it at sunderland on more than one occassion.

Poor recruitment is the issue.

Dont get me wrong. I am not saying its his fault, I put it down to tactics. Its the wrong time to be heavily using him as much as we are.

Imagine if we were leading 2-0.. on the counter it would be unreal.

While we are losing 1-0 .. its serving no benefit.

I like him, if we buy a quality pacy striker he'll end up getting assists, his distribution is tremendous

He's a vast improvement on Joel and Stek.

Doesn’t help his cause when two out of his four defenders are Williams and Martina.

I'm in the "we would be on 1 point if not for Pickford" camp...so, no.

Biting my tongue here.
He's been devastingly underwhelming at goodison and seems to have developed a belief he can run straight through solid objects.

No, the issue is the smarmy looking tubby one in the dugout, and the old granny looking geezer who was working on the transfers

No, he's a solution.

He's boss.

Do we have to dig out every player?

He looks decent. Very slow on his feet and never on his toes so seems to reeact late. He is young so can iron that out. Some left foot on him though

Not perfect, but short answer is no.

About 10 other positions I'd be more concerned about filling before his.
