Train them to play winning football until they get the idea.

I really dont think with any of the players ability is the problem.. they have all done well either previously or elsewhere.

It is a mentality issue and shows up away from home and vs the top teams.

If three manager's cant sort this out then its time for a mass clearout and start again.

Keane will come strong next season. I think we need to sell these, Schneiderlin, Klaassen, Bolasie, Williams, Ramirez, Mirallas, Niasse, Besic,
Buy new LB, CB central mid. with creativity and striker.
LB: Sessengon, Tierney, Philipp Max
CB: David Alaba, Tah, Andreas Christensen
Mid: Andre Gomez, Bryan Cristante, M.Dahoud
Striker: Anthony Martial, Timo Werner, Marcus Rashford

Most of these would not come to us unless we give them salary over the moon...

The only players I'd hate to see us lose in the summer are pickford, Coleman and walcott.
I'd also keep the youth just to see if they come good. But the rest I couldn't really care much about. Jags, rooney and Baines are past it. So many mediocre players in the squad.

Weve bought so poorly it will take 4 transfer windows to get reasonabley sorted

One well planned, intelligently conceived summer window under a manager and a DOF on the same page, and you could sort this squad right out.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I agree with that but we would need that manager and DOF on board within the next few weeks, not mid July.

Certainly in place by the end of May, at the latest. We'll see if any lessons have been learned from the Koeman/Walsh summer.

Because that pairing wouldn't work. I can see your logic but one is a lad without much experience who plays off the cuff and the other is a lad who looks scared of a football at the minute.

I'd be pairing Holgate with Jags until the end of the season, telling Keane to go away and sort his head out and make sure he's ready to come in pre season ready for a fresh challenge and to start his Everton career afresh. Knowing he won't have to see Ashley Williams ever again. 

I agree at the moment, but I think Holgate and Keane for the future was the plan (God, I hope there was a plan !!) and in the long term should still be.

As much as I am not a fan of a back 3 I would like to see Keane, Jags, Holgate for the last few games. Let Jags coach them positioning, how to read the game and hopefully build their confidence in real game situations. We have to be looking at the future, as we can't afford another summer and start of the season like this.

We looked our most solid when Holgate had a run of games but we haven't seen him since.

He can't do any worse than Ashley Williams even if he was alongside Titus Bramble.

I might sound a bit mad but maybe having a bit of pace in defence helped and someone who can play out the back allowed us to retain possession a bit better.

It's fucking mental, if you were to grade our central defenders average rating against the number of game played Holgate would be top with the exception of Jags.

I feel he is pretty awesome. does the dirty work and has the skill to do what he does, we shouldnt play him on the left tho..we should use pace on the wings.. i feel he would be awesome in front of Davies and Gueye... 3 combative CM's, 1 with energy and pace, 1 who just tries t o win the ball back and one with the vision to to get us attacking.

Siggy has probably been my fave new signing this season.
Unsworth has a 100% League record at home
Norwich 3-0 15th May 2016
Watford 3-2 5th Nov 2017
West Ham 4-0 29th Nov 2017
To Be Continued.....

Me too probably, I didnt want him particularly, certainly not for that amount but meh, hes done OK in a bad situation. And I think if we just made him shoot as much as possible and got him in and around the area as much as possible we could make him a success (through pure G+A) but hes not a midfielder really and he doesnt play like one.

This model doesnt rate his passing (or anything else) this year, but I do think hes been OK. I just think for his age and that, if we did get offered 30+ then Id take it.
