I get all that, it's just that there's no difference now compared to the past. Outside of the club fans are exposed to daily, hourly updates and I think that unfairly impacts expectations of the club.

Yeah. it does. As far as I'm concerned, the club can be as communicative (or not) as they like during the week.
But that's not the same as asking for a progress report on a player nearing a return from injury in a weekly press conference.

I think we'll have to agree to disagree, because I think it is.

It's not an hourly update though, is it?!
It's asking the manager, in his one routinely scheduled weekly press conference (excluding post-match), to give a few words on the injured players. If there's nothing to report, then just say as much. If he doesn't want to give to much away, just say "Bernard is progressing well and we hope to have him available soon".

If you're not a season ticket holder and are trying to plan when to take your lad to the match, if his favourite player is injured you're probably going to want to wait until he's back.

Heís way more important to us vs the big teams as his workrate for a flair player is unbelievable.

Would obviously like him back as soon as possible but not the end of the world if he misses this weekend.

Either way, pressure has eased up on Silva so Sig is now back at number 10 and itís probably an either/or with Bernard/Iwobi

Disagree. There's still plenty of pressure; the last thing Silva, and subsequently Everton, needs is dropping any points before LC / Liverpool / Arsenal / LC again (Cup) / Chelsea / United. The momentum earned by the 3 pts (and thus undefeated in 4; only 1 garbage loss to Brighton away from undefeated in 6) can't be understated IMO.

I also don't quite understand the "Sig is now back at 10" sentiments. We have 3 forwards playing decent-to-well enough in Ritchie / DCL (or please god Kean / Walcott. Iwobi belongs in the 10. Not saying Marco is as smart as I am ( ;) ) but we certainly have the ability to avoid Sig starting again.

That said, Bernard/Gomes/Gbamin out may force his hand. I suppose Delph being fit (no idea if he is) could change Silva's mindset, but man do I pray Sigurdsson isn't starting.

True. But you know what else is important? Trade secretes and keeping your opponents guessing. Not everything is about us.

The Bill Belichick approach; no one has any clue who's injured or not before playing the Patriots.

Well, we can only be dreadful when measured against ours peers, not the whims of our fans. You might think we're terrible, but is that reality or is it just measured against what you want.

This sin't a dig, I'm just trying to be realistic, and play devils advocate.

Adhere to my whims or get to fuck jamo
