Just watched a ten minute highlight video of his Goals.

Some great finishes in there. He seems
to be superb one on one, can lift it, smash if, roll it, dink it or place it, and seems to hit corners more often than not. Sure itís over 10 years worth of togger and heís had ozil etc. Behind him for much of it but heís definitely got goals in his locker.

Think Iíve talked myself around.

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.

I’ve been thinking about Mirallas legacy with Everton which you have to say is chequered.

However even Mirallas had the redeeming feature of his goalscoring, and even at the end of his career here after 3 years of some of the shittest, most annoying, disruptive let down performances - you’d still get people saying - Mirallas RW.

It’s understandable, He’s probably been our best goalscoring midfielder since Cahill? In his first 4 years he got 9, 8, 11 and 6 - way better than most others. Fellaini was good for goals but his best year still only beat kevs best by 1 I think.

Walcott scores more goals than Kevin Mirallas, absolutely 100% guaranteed, and I think he could potentially surprise a few here.

I don't think Bolasie has got any more game to up, to be honest

Aww I wouldnít say that necessarily.

That bit against United where he fronted their RM and burned him, then did the same to the RB leaving them both flat, absolutely superb. If he could just concentrate on that rather than foot rolls and tricks until heís up to speed heíd be much better off and a great addition to the side.

Needs to have a clearly defined benefit to the team.

Even if thatís just having that bit of invention when games are tight and more straight lines players arenít doing it.

But you still canít ignore just doing the basic things at the right time.

Heís big, fast and works hard so he should be someone who you can rely on to do a decent job come what may.

Think heís very much a big Sam player and would be surprised if he didnít get a bit out of him when fit.

Just with him being into %s so much I doubt heíll appreciate not getting in the box at the expense of an attempted foot roll.

Not unreasonably either.

Those things should be crowd pleasers when points are secure.

Agree, or if heís just grinding a full back down whoís number he has, love all that then.

Tell you who is fucking good at just dropping a shoulder and firing one across the box - little geri the gem. Niasse would have 20 goals this year from near post toeys alone.

Tell you what @gizzblue lad youíve been giving me some likes lately. Starting to feel like you might be cracking on.

Walcott is good enough. Sig is good enough. Pickford is good enough. Gana is good enough. Coleman is good enough. Rooney is just about good enough. Bolasie could be good enough. Davies might be. Holgate might be.

We really not that far off

Pickford
Other

Coleman  Keane    Other   Baines
Kenny     Holgate   Other   Other


Davies    Gana    Rooney
Other      Other   Other


Walcott     Tosun     Sigurdsson
Other       Niasse    Bolasie

Promising Youth:
DCL
Lookman
Onyekuru
Dowell

Think Iíve been a bit positive here as well to be honest, and even then compared to the top 6 we look about £300m off not  taking into account the inevitable inflation of next summer.

In terms of getting 7th next year, I think 4 signings of young, athletic Europa level quality in CB/LB/CM/ST would make the world of difference.

Biggest priorities are :

1. A back up for Rooney who can do what rooney does. At the moment we canít play when heís not on the pitch and he wonít be here for long.

2. LB

3. A quality, mobile CB. Bonus points if they can ball a bit. Triple bonus points if they can organise a piss up in a brewery. Quadruple bonus points if they are entirely free of brain farts.

4. A striker, pace would be great, pace and goals would be even better.

Yes would save us a lot of money if Klaassen could suddenly turn out ok, box to box with a high work rate and typically picked up a lot of goals in Holland (15-20 per year).

However, he hasnít been part of a squad for 9 weeks and hasnít played for the u23s in that time. Iíve no idea what he does besides like peopleís Instagram posts.
