Just shown a graphic on MOTD with him surrounded by 4 defenders and the nearest Everton player was 45 yards further back.

The picture said a thousand words.

Let it go it's over. Fuck me literally all I said was I didn't think he was very good. Baffled as to why you'd even care.

Because you care enough to post it. Over and over again. So clearly this is something of utmost importance to you. And therefore I think it would be rude to just ignore something that you're clearly so passionate about.

It's an Everton forum. On the DCL thread. I assumed that's what we were meant to do. As for over and over again. I repeatedly keep trying to get out of the conversation now. Strangely your just too offended to let it go. Do I need to apologise or something. Would that help? I really didn't want to fall out with you over something so minor.

Why don't you police the Williams thread with such vigor? Much worse is said in there.

Can we just agree to disagree. Who cares what I think. I thought Martinez was a great appointment. Of course you're probably right.

Anyone else see his touch in the first half when he plucked pickfords kick from the sky?

The lads got it.

There was a similar one the other week - can't remember who against.

The lad has got skill and I'm sure we will see the best of him once he's been given the time to develop properly

That's the issue. He needs time.

Forgetting the above.

Ideally DCL would be getting sporadic game time as a sub during a decent amount of games this season. At least that’s where I’d put his development and the amount of responsibility we should be giving him. Probably Sandro too for that matter.

Would you see his best use as anything other than that?

Now that’s not the luxury we have of course, but say we signed Giroud nobody would keep DCL as our starting CF would we? At least for most games.

There seems to be some weird arguments floating around. He’s got potential to be a good PL striker but there can be a distinction that he might not be what we need in this particular moment in a struggling side.

Surely most people would want us to bring in a striker day one of the January window opening?

This is the issue I have with Sigurdsson. He was bought as our attacking No 10, the man who would be central to everything we did offensively. Sometimes I hardly notice he's playing. I don't care whether he's being asked to play slightly wider than normal he should still be putting in a shift to get close to the striker but he rarely breaks into a sweat.
I've given Koeman enough pelters about all number of things but the players shouldn't be getting away scot free in all of this. The performances they have put in have been shocking.

Been saying that a while. Lukaku last season was 40 yards away from the midfield.. but he's Lukaku..

Seriously how the fuck could the manager keep this system/play this way.
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

& Unsworth kicking ass.

We signed about 4 No 10's to specifically make sure this type of thing never happened.

One of the things people don't realise is DCL is Unsworth's player. Knew him from Sheff U, gave him first pro contract.

Convinced the club to buy him and him to join us, despite other interest.

DCL is going to play, get better service and has manager who knows how to get best out of him now.

This continued reliance on DCL is just insanity at this point.

While there are certainly a whole heap of issues to deal with, the striking position is the biggest single issue in the whole squad right now. He doesn't score and doesn't help us build up any sort of an attack.

The biggest difference between this season and last season is replacing a capable striker with one that isn't ready for the PL. This doesn't mean it's his fault per se, but I'm staggered if people still think he belongs in a team that's either in a relegation fight or having far higher aspirations than that.

Shouldn't be anywhere near the starting XI.

Desperately need a new striker January 1st. Probably a couple for that matter.

He doesnt do anything. Even when talking about his good moments its clever hold up play that wins us a throw. Im not blaming the lad but hes clearly not currently good enough. He simply wouldnt start for any other side in the league. Niasse whos clearly lacking in real quality is currently a much bigger threat. Id sooner play Rooney up top or even Mirallas.
