Is he starting tonight?
Norwich don't play until Saturday, Derby County at home.
I’m sure he was linked with a big European team, earlier in the window, but were put off by Norwich’s asking price.Sent from my iPhone using NSNO Everton Forums
Everton has a good track recording in developing good centre halves. So I guess it's worth seeing if Ben has significant potential. However, I have to raise the question about our FFP. Also if he's injury prone as playing with an injury can cause long term problems.
Sounds like this has legs!Sent from my iPhone using NSNO Everton Forums
I don't think it makes sense to worry about FFP since we're not the billionaire accountants in charge of the club's finances.
Well that was my train of thought before someone drummed FFP into me on another thread. I'm sure you can recall that thread.
Quick, athletic, very good passer (short and long) and a great attitude. Still needs to improve his positioning and reading of the game at the highest level, but there's every reason to think he will be able to do this with time and experience.
I think Godfrey has mistakes in him too (mostly positional). But what he does very well is have that ability to pass the ball around and bring the ball out of defence. He works hard and is rarely injured too. I hope that step up in quality around him will challenge him to make the step up too.He's truly got the potential to be an England international. And I haven't said that about too many of our players. Maybe the only one since James Madison.
Godfrey's passing is defnitely superior to Stones, I think he's quicker and more agile, and far better at moving up to support the midfield. Stones has the benefit of experience at present as well as having the chance to play alongside some very good players whereas Godfrey has struggled to have a settled partnership with a truly great teammate to help him develop.I still maintain that 25mil is too low based on all the factors previously mentioned, but do concede that maybe my original value of 40 mil + addons was too high. 30 mil + addons would be my preferred position, but I doubt the club would turn down 25 + addons either..
