It’s all the videos and interviews they like to do to put out straight away.

Surely people are more bothered about the announcement and can wait 24 hrs for an interview etc?!

As long as he's available for the next game yes.

Waiting for some good lighting to film the video.
Nah, they're waiting for halftime in the game Saturday.

Press conference about to start with Allardyce and Tosun, it would be very Everton to announce Walcott during it

yeah, i don't buy the "worst squad in ages" thinking.

I do buy the "worst footballing philosophy in ages" though

One of the slowest back fours in the prem due to injuries and bad planning

Only two left footed players in the squad both dreadfully injured

No recognised left back in the squad despite Baines age and injuries and form

3 of our backline are now 30+ And it is showing badly in injuries and form

Worst striking options in the Prem bar none up until last week.

Glaring gaps in midfield, both defensive and attacking abilities

Relying on teenagers week in week out

Back up goalies absolutely shite

Distinct lack of chance creators from open play and it is showing.

I mean, we’ve had SOME of these problems before, but never all at once.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Coleman, Keane, Jags/Williams, Baines is not even close to the worst back 4 we have had in living memory.
We've had to play tony Hibbert as centre half before today.

Only two left footed players in the squad both dreadfully injured

Outside of the left back position i'm not having that as some kind of marker to be honest

No recognised left back in the squad despite Baines age and injuries and form
I'm sure i remember a time when both Pistone and Naysmith were injured.

3 of our backline are now 30+ And it is showing badly in injuries and form

more than 3 of our defenders are less than 30. Gough, Weir and Stubbs were all over 30 at the same time.

Worst striking options in the Prem bar none up until last week.
As an Evertonian, dont dare come at me with a stat like this? You genuinely think this is the worst attacking line up we've fielded?
Do you remember Steve Watson playing up front? (granted, he scored a hattrick like. But fuck me)

Glaring gaps in midfield, both defensive and attacking abilities
Defensively? You mean like Gueye who people were rating as a second tier Kante 18 months ago? Schneiderlin who was our best player when he came in?
Offensively? You mean like our record signing who tore up trees in the prem for years and a clutch of really bright kids?

Relying on teenagers week in week out
"you win nothing with kids"

Back up goalies absolutely shite

good job backup keepers are only needed every few years. There have been looong periods where our first choice kepper has been absolutely shite.

I think you're conflating my two actual points here.

I mean, we’ve had SOME of these problems before, but never all at once.
No, we've had them all and worse at times.



We still have a squad much, much stronger than at nearly any point in the premier league. (because squads as an entity didn't exist before that then you could say it's amongst the best ever).

OK, the team itself has been a bit lopsided. but you've definitely fell into the trap of thinking shit performance/tactics equals shit players.

Slowest

A sign of imbalance imo but fair enough I won’t argue too much.

Right and who filled in? But if it are going back to 2000-2007 it’s still 10-11 years mate

Different era altogether, if you are slow you are going to get punished. Massive investment needed. Again how far are you going back here??

I mean in the current prem. that Everton side was worse. 2003. And yeah, I would have 18 year old rooney or an aging Ferguson/Campbell over Niasse and DCL.

2003 lad.

You are right we are solid as a rock and creating so many chances for our strikers I cant believe my eyes.

I said glaring gaps, not every single player is shite at every single thing.

"you win nothing with kids"

“You win nothing with average kids”

Sound ok

Apologies if I am. I’m talking about squad weaknesses and that’s one of them.

I mean, we’ve had SOME of these problems before, but never all at once.

No, we've had them all and worse at times.

So we’re not as bad as were 15 years ago when we nearly went down.

Great news everyone.

I dont think 15-20 years is ages.
I don't think this is the worst squad we have had either side of that time period.
I think you are confusing managers initiating shit football with players being shit.

There is not a squad in world football that would do well if they took to the field with the instructions these guys seem to be getting given.
It was criminal not to bring a striker in during the summer yeah. The left back position needs sorting out as well.
but those things do not make this a bad squad.

Totally agree that tactically we are a mess, but have to agree to disagree re:squad quality over 15 years. That’s a long time to go back to say ‘Ey we were worse then?’ Madness to me that.

it all depends on the word ages though doesn't it?

I said it's not the worst squad we've had in ages. I stand by that.
It just seems we differ as to what an age is  :thumbsup:

I think squad quality is very high, the problem is the team quality. The sums of our parts is fuck all, they are all good cogs just none of them fit together.

No worries, I’m potentially going overboard again anyway...it has been known.

I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
