^ brap2 right about now
Just to confirm this list only consists of clubs outside the top 6.
Also do you know what constitutes a chance created? Only asking as he as only has 1 assist, so they either arent great chances created, or our forward players aren't all that?

Although thinking more I don't suppose a conversion rate of 1 in 5 is actually that bad, although don't know the Prem average?

As a side note, I think the "Top 6" is dead. It's more of a 4 again, then the rest.

I get your point, but I think Spurs and Leicester are a fair bit further ahead of the rest

Our shit/out of form left back isn't doing bad either

Yeah, but as Benitez is known for....  he could do better. I like that about him. No room for complacency.

Interesting take on where he thinks his best position is


Iwobi has stressed that he is prepared to play in whatever position he is asked to by manager Rafael Benitez.

"I think playing different roles has helped me to understand the game a bit more, especially those defensive roles," Iwobi said to Everton's official website.

"I'm not going to complain - playing right wing-back, right midfield, left midfield, I'll play anywhere and I'll always give my best.

"My aim is to get more goals and assists but if I'm asked to do it at right wing-back, then I'll do it and try my best!

"I think, for Everton, my best position for the team is probably out wide.

"For my national team, it's completely different and I do like playing in the midfield as a number 8 or number 10.

"I feel like I can play in any position. For each manager and each team it's going to be different."

Iwobi was nominated for Everton's Goal of the Month for August 2021 but missed out on the accolade to Abdoulaye Doucoure.

Every team needs a utility player. Maybe that's how we need to think of him.
Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right.

Interesting. He looked fed up with playing as a traditional winger by the end of last season.

Maybe Benitez has created a bit of goodwill here using him where he's most comfortable to start this season.

He defo doesn't want to play out wide, or at wing back. He's being diplomatic there, but it's not hard to decipher that he wants to play through the middle as often as possible. And that's fine.

The above comment sounds like me saying 'I'm happy to go and visit my other half's family for the weekend. I really like staying at home too and not going to visit them, but I'm happy to do what's necessary to maintain some semblance of a relationship'
