Hang on.. mine is getting a bit clearer. I can't see the manager's face clearly but whoever it is keeps repeating "Well OK" in a foreign accent.

Sounds like it might be a watered down version of Koeman..

Frightening to think that he's still genuinely better than Funes Mori as well.

Debatable on recent showing ...Mori is dangerous and a card waiting to happen but Williams cuts out the middle man and hands goals to the opponent

Id have an injured Funes Mori over Williams at the moment

I actually feel a little for him. He hit his peak in his last season at Swansea and has been declining since. He's now playing under more pressure and it seems to have sent him backwards. He often looks embarrassed and tries to hide under his shirt as he knows he's letting himself and the team down but for some reason either his body or brain or both aren't up to it at the minute. He needs a spell out of the side to maybe refocus and come back in when the team is hopefully in a better place. 

I agree.  For one, he's being asked to do too much.  For twos, his failings have just been more obvious/easy to recognize on the teevee box, so he bears the brunt of Everton's collective failures.

I mean, it's surely not just on him.  Not to excuse his play entirely, but the last thing this group of PLAYERS merits is a scapegoat.  The bag of fault is deep and wide, my Transatlantic imaginary friends.

You get a certain madcap joy watching Funes Mori play, anyway.  As if Hunter S. Thompson were playing CB.

I'd have mori over Williams in a heartbeat, also a left footed option at CB

But it's not anything that you'd consider secondary (playing the ball out or spraying crossfield balls for example) that he's doing pathetically,  it's bread and butter defending.

I never thought I'd want Mori over another player in my life. I do think there's a bit of an 'anyone but Williams' mentality and people will soon remember why we all thought Mori was shite within 10 minutes of him coming back but it'll be a nice 10 minutes of hope.

Leading the line (when Keane isn't available), playing too many matches.  It's trickling down into the basics, methinks.

He should be the 4th choice CB.  In that capacity, he'd probably still be ok.

He's low on confidence and ageing and when that happens you start doing the basics poorly. We've all been there, or the ones who have played regular football at a decent level. You make silly decisions, you hoof the ball when a simple pass would do if your mind was clear enough to spot it, you lunge in to make sure you don't get isolated but you get there too late because you've thought about it for a split second longer than normal.
I played centre half for years and whilst clearly not at anywhere near this level the psychology is the same as it's all relative, only every mistake is magnified 1000 fold at the top level and the players you play against are more unforgiving.
