Woof what a player. Can barely move, like watching Riquelme in a charity match...but his technique is stunning.

Shame it's all for absolutely nothing, but that's what happens when you have no long term plan to improve a squad and just add random deals each new manager likes.

Iím 50/50 on this. Mad injuries aside (too many sides have had bonkers injuries and lost big players for me to think the club has fucked it tbf to them) if we had a decent 11 out throughout the season he would have fired us into Europe at the very least.

Then this summer adding some more quality (I think we may be surprised with the profile of player coming in) and weíre cooking and his final season with us is firing us into the CL.

Fanciful? Yep. Absurd? I donít think so.

Never seen a player look so completely exhausted and then receive the ball and come to life the way he does.  I just hope next season we have better options so he can shine even brighter... If we get the right players in with him it'll just make him even more effective, which is one hell of an exciting prospect

I think he will be fine for the next 2 seasons.

The James we see now won't be any different to the James we see when he is 31/32.

His game doesn't rely on pace, he isn't fast anyway, it's based on absolute erection inducing close control and sexy sublime first touches and working it in pockets of space to find space even we can't see out of nowhere.

If we are to go anywhere the next 2 years we need to flood the squad with willing runners and intelligent players that he will bring the best out of.

Oh and maybe some better finishers too.

The accuracy of difficult passes he makes is amazing. You see it leave his foot and think it's going to intercepted or go out of play, but no it lands exactly in the perfect place for the target.

Was also good to see him last the entire game after playing Monday too

Playing him like we did rooney when he came back.



Yeah. Sad to see. Some of the criticism Rooney got was bonkers and down to him having players around him who could not think of or see the game on his level.

Looked like he had to dumb his game down to get a pass off sometimes.

I love that step he does.

Most players move like chess pieces, up, down, left, right - but James got more moves than the Queen and will step in any one of the full 360 degrees to shrug a player off. Then suddenly he's in 10 yards of space and you don't know how he did it except it was fucking cool.

He's so aware of what's around him I swear I can see his spider-senses tingling when an opposition player gets too close to him.

Itís been a joy watching him this year. Consistently dangerous even when heís hardly had a touch.

Think weíve got to swing for the fences this summer and give him some attacking reinforcements for him to link with.

Look at this touch

https://twitter.com/Everton/status/1385273787852206080

I pulled off a touch like that once in 7 a side. I could be blagging, you'll never know, but I did yano.
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.
