He’s not going to work out playing a high line.

Can put the best defence in the world around him, teams will continually exploit him and get goals.

Even without the issue of playing a high line, he’s constantly getting caught the wrong side of players.

Got to be Holgate or even jags alongside a new centre half for me.
Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Because our fan base on twitter are amongst the worst i have seen.

A stable partner next to him, competent full backs and a midfield that at least pretends to protect him and he will work his way back into the England scene.
He'll be as good as Stones & Maguire, i still don't doubt that.

Going back to what Allardyce said today though, maybe it's me that give Evertonians too much credit & that they really are daft enough to want everything on a plate.

I admire your optimism and I hope you're right, but if we're going to move forward with a pressing game which Silva likes then we're going to need defenders who can defend high up the pitch and are competent one on one.
I just don't see it in him. He looked decent as part of a tight defensive unit who never ventured more than 35 yards from their own goal but his acceleration and twisting and turning is really poor for a professional athlete in his mid 20's. He's going to need to be surrounded by some pretty agile and understanding team-mates if we are to hide his flaws.

Yeah sometimes you see the shouts on twitter for like challenging the top 4 and you just have to believe some poeples heads are in the clouds.

Re Keane though, I’m not sure at all. Benefited from the Burnley-boost and is plainly struggling. Not writing him off of course but the fact is at the moment Jags is still the main man imo.
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.

Feel this season our back 2/3 will end up being picked from Holgate Jagielka and a new CB.

I also feel with Silva liking Schneiderlin i think Gana may be phased out of the starting 11 with a more complete player taking his position.

If Schneiderlin starts instead of Gueye, we've got big problems.

not even remotely concerned about that this summer, next summer if he has a good season for us is more of a worry.

There’ll be massive upheaval in the squad in the next couple of weeks. Silva wants a squad of 25 and even if he only gets 2 or 3 of his targets, I can see about 10 leaving. I don’t expect Silva to bring in the (up to) 6 he wants but we’ll get at least 4. The squad is going to look very different in 3 week’s time.

I actually think it'll work in our favour. Clubs get desperate the nearer the window closes and as we have rather a large pool of players who are disposable there could potentially be a decent bit of rinsing of cash-rich clubs to come, if we have enough savvy people at the club able to process such a large amount of work in a short period of time.

Agree dude, it’s bloody daft how players are sold by papers and media outlets with absolutely nothing backing it up, never used to be like this. I miss the 80s

I don't necessarily agree. They offer different things. I think Gueye is too one dimential
Are we there yet?

I like Gana, but he has his faults, positioning and passing being two of those. Depends how were going to play - I think Silva is a Schneiderlin fan

I want us to sign a centre mid who can apply pressure but also take on a man and play defence splitting passes, anyone think of anyone?

Seeing Keane attempt to turn on a dustbin for the Porto goal makes me hope our centreback pairing is Holgate and Mina.

Looks bad doesn’t it that goal, totally left for dust as well.
