Match ratings from the 2017 season.  ESPNFC or any credible, unbiased source.

One of these players will improve, one will steadily decline, your choice.  Head or heart.
One of them is better for us now tho
Dcl will only really improve if we handle him correctly


Simply simply lovely

DCL needs to carry more goal threat in PL matches for any sort of reliance to be placed on him.

I cant recall many missed chances which is a worry, more than if he was missing a couple of good ones a game.

He obviously has the advantage if were solely going to be playing balls into the channels but youd hope in most games that wed be at least equal in possession / territory etc.

Re Rooney Id say anyone majorly disappointed with him is a) not applying the same reasons for others poor form so far and b) doing the opposite of sentimentality and comparing what he is now to about 5-8 years ago.

I am saying Wayne Rooney will not be a part of the next good Everton side, and he's not good enough NOW to be taking starting minutes away from players that will (or at least might).  It's time to move on, and grow as a real unit/team.  Rooney doesn't help that one bit.  He's not making other players better, he just wanders all over the pitch and scores the odd goal (given a huge amount of minutes).  That's all.

People like watching him for sentimental reasons.  But he shouldn't be starting.
So much rubbish in one paragraph.

Again, Niasse has just as many goals from open play as Rooney, nobody clamors for him to be in the XI every week.

Each man is best used as a bench option, unless we play 2 up top.
Obviously didn't mean to like that,for you to compare them 2 is absolutely unbelievable,and fucking embarrassing.

And c) steadfastly sticking to preconceived opinions in the desperate hope of eventually being right.

He's not far wrong imo.
I was quite pleased with that side Unsworth put out against Chelsea, bar Williams and Rooney (especially upfront).
 
The fact of the matter is the likes of Sigurdsson, Klassen and Sandro are all on their knees as far as recent performances and form go. Rooney is pretty much at this same level now for the foreseeable. The fact it's a toss of a coin who should start between the four of them tells you everything.
Once Unsy gets a system going and regular performances, Rooney shouldn't be anywhere near starting most games.

Wouldn't be surprised to see more of McCarthy, he suits that pressing style Unsworth wants to implement, even if he is a bit of a crab.

Tough game this, a draw will be a good result. Rooney has been our most consistent player this season, cant believe people are wanting him dropped, he's our only decent goalscorer. He's scored about 5 goals already? which means he will probably end up on around 15+ for the season of he keeps this level up. Not bad for a free transfer and as good as what anyone would have expected. Bigger problems than Rooney in this squad.

if unsworth gets the job till the end of the season Rooney be p!aying in most of the games, because Unsworth knows a player,you don't.

It's like people have forgot Rooney is our top scorer.

He's becoming the scapegoat already.
His passing game is fucking fucked lad that's why, he's boss when he score but when he's dropped himself to defensive midfield and played a 5 yard pass at 30 yard pace, or a ten yard pass at 2 yard pace, you wanna kick him in the fucking face.
It's the roll I way
