Jake Clarke-Salter who got ragged everywhere in the championship for Sunderland last season and then sent into the abyss that is Vitesse Arnhem is a more preferable option?

He wasn't good enough for Sunderland, what more do you need to know!

Wonder if we requested it given our CB injury situation and given the number of players we do have in the squad?

Does anyone know much about Shayne Lavery? Made the senior Northern Ireland squad a couple of months ago but rarely seen him get a mention with Everton.

Why even bother including the Wales games. Ashley Williams is not coming back. Granted, he's only on loan at Stoke but he's out of contract anyway this summer and thankfully there's no way we're going to see him in an Everton shirt again.
I'm not even remotely arsed about Williams anymore. He's part of the past, when we should be looking forward.

Did you bother to look at their opposition and who their captain is ? Quite apart from that I found it useful as I was waiting for it to appear on the O.S but got it here first.

You see that chart knocking about last night? Basically comparing how quick and effective midfielders are when using the ball.

Surprisingly Morgan is amongst the leagues best when it comes to using the ball quickly

Gana isn't, but I always maintain he's not there for that. Win it, pop it off and sit

Nice. Agree we can't expect too much of the same from Gana as we do from Scheiderlin.

You got a link to the chart?

McCarthy would be right up there if they’re looking at players who use the ball quickly. He’s top drawer at already looking behind him, or at best to the side, for a zero responsibility negative ball before he’s even got it.

I did see that yeah but to be fair not a great deal of minutes played so far so likely to get skewed results.

The CM article by @footballfactman on Twitter is the best read on this for us. The Everton preview on statsbomb mentions it as well I think I.e how well do we move the ball up the pitch etc.

Re: Gana - yes I agree that that is what he is *good at* but that doesn’t seem to be what he is being *asked to do* which are two very different things.

Every touch Gana takes in transition or in the final third is for me, a touch that should be taken by Gylfi. But that isn’t what we see, what we see is Gana winning the ball back an incredible amount and then more often then not dribbling in half circles and passing backwards or sideways to someone else who is equally as bad at going forward. Checkout toffee analysis for his Bournemouth review as well. Good detail with gifs explaining etc.

Edit: also Morgan will be up there because it was a Quick/Accurate matrix which he will be both because he’s a competent passer and quick at recycling posession, but doesn’t try passes into the final third or with any kind of risk or impetus to them (I.e risk of being inaccurate - check out where neves is on that chart for instance.)

Am I over-simplifying it too much to expect our better ballers to be immediately making themselves available to the ones who win it back? If every time Gana is getting near the ball, the likes of Sigurdsson, Walcott, Richarlison etc are aware of  where they are in relation to him and whether they can show for an easy pass - is that too much to expect?

Feels simple doesn’t it but this is a problem that has existed for us since before we got Barry, so i assume there are other elements to it besides move towards the ball winner.

Plus Gana must get asked to try and be a bit more progressive on the ball, ala Kante this season, because Koeman, unsworth, allardyce and silva have all pushed him up the field with Schneiderlin behind.

See I don’t actually think Gana is bad at that at all. He can win the ball and drive forward 10 yards quite easily and is quite effective at it too. It’s the next stage where we fall down because we lack the fluidity of movement ahead of him which makes him pirouette and turn back, making him look more limited than he is.

It might come once we get the new way of playing bedded in and better quality at No 9 and 10.

Is it fair to wonder if Mola might be dealing with something in his personal life?  Not to be prying, but surely if he's healthy, he's more than good enough for the U21s.

He's had a lot thrown at him at a young age, and that's harder for some than others.  Hope he's doing ok.  Very happy Goodison has stayed positive for him.

Owch davies with a stinker right at the end there, looks gutted.

Had three bites at the cherry and ended up skying it. Thought he’d buryed the second one but no luck.

Difficult chance but he’ll be gutted.

Made up for Hornby. Looks a good centre forward.

Didn’t see dowell, did he not get on?

Pains me to say but Chilwell looks like he’s stepped up a gear to me. Charging forward like Ashley Cole there.

Scotland U21s now level second on points in their group, but behind on goal differential to Ukraine, with two matches remaining. The two sides do play in the October window, as well as Scotland/England (who are group leaders).

Scotland and Ukraine aren't terribly well situated to qualify for the U21 Euros with a second-place group finish, so their match in the Ukraine will be critical next month.

Richarlison drew a PK (Neymar converted, so he gets an assist, I think), then scored a couple of neat first-time finishes for his first 2 international goals. Started in the middle of an attacking trio as essentially the #9. Yes, El Salvador is not good, but it's a very encouraging performance.

I agree mate, would love to see more of him but you’d be the first to admit our midfield’s the most precariously balanced part of the side.

We are very, very open even with 3 midfielders who get through tons and tons of work. Opportunities might not have arisen just yet.

I think he’ll get minutes when we’re a bit more settled and reliable maybe. would have helped if he’d made more of a case for himself in the cup too, but is what it is.

Don't see where Dowell fits in to be honest. Lookman seems first option off the right flank, the left is sewn up with the two Brazilians and he doesn't seem keen to use him centrally as I imagine Silva likes his central players to press and work and Dowell doesn't fit into that category. I know the loan shouts get bandied around all the time but he really does need to be playing football every week now under a manager who needs some craft and guile to bulld a team around.

Sure, but we're talking about 20-30 minutes at the end of a match where we're on the front foot. You could easily sub him for Davies or Sigurdsson in that scenario without destroying our balance.

Quote
We are very, very open even with 3 midfielders who get through tons and tons of work. Opportunities might not have arisen just yet.

We've been open with midfielders who work hard for years now. Our inability to control the ball is the real issue. Dowell won't solve that problem today but he could be a part of the solution moving forward if we give him match time to develop.

As much as we’d like to keep him, it’s be far better for him to move away, probably permanently.

At some point, he's going to have to, and I think there's a fair chance he makes us look very stupid if he does move.

I was very disappointed with Dowell in the cup game. Yes, he looks class and cultured on the ball but too often he drifted and the game just flew past him. I'm not sure he can cope with a pressing game. He seemed reluctant or unable to do the work required, which is strange considering he did so well at Forest for a large part of last season in the super-competitive Championship. But everyone says the speed of the Premier is another level and that seems to his achilles heal.

I hope I'm wrong and he can grow into one of those players who makes his own time and space. At the moment, he seems an easy target to subdue in our midfield.

Pickford off at the break in a planned substitution. Alex McCarthy gets his first cap.

Keane got done by Pulisic right before England's first, but it's not like he's the only CB that's ever happened to. (As an aside, Pulisic would look amazing on our right flank.) The shot was right into Pickford, a decent save in the end as he came out to meet it.

Anyone who didn't see Richarlison for Brazil. He had 25 minutes, missed a fairly decent/easy chance, but made a big difference to their pace and seemed to improve their attacking options for the time he was on. Any money we've spent on messing about with managers will be covered by the money we make when Richarlison moves on. I should imagine any extras in his transfer fee will be activated, as he's an absolute bargain at 50 mill. Once again, you can rely on the opposite of what Paul Merson spews out. Silvas' probably covered his wages already. "He's a much better player than I thought".

...................and his dig at Pickford for 'chesting ' the ball too hard.

What a pass from Pickford

Then less than a minute later he got caught in possession and gave a foul away

Yeah they glossed over that, but remember how budgerigar Hodgson overreacted when Barkley made a mistake when he was in charge, and the pundits followed suit and crucified him.

A bit like Goodison ;)

Vlasic starts for Croatia no 10 position.

Did he run the game then? Create anything?

Coleman played 90 mins in a 0-0 draw in Denmark.. Ireland havnt scored in 6 & half hours of football - it's no wonder, as their two strikers tonight both play in the football league, and neither have scored this season ha

Richarlison doesn't start against Cameroon, but comes on less than 10 minutes in as Neymar is injured.

...Then makes a lovely diagonal run across the box on a corner kick just before halftime and sends a fantastic header past the keeper at the near post!

Anyone beginning to worry that Richarlison will be attracting a lot of interest now?

Obviously good news for us that he's doing so well

Would much rather that than nobody be interested and he turned out to be shit.

Clubs sell players, even the biggest ones. I want him to stay for as long as possible but if a massive club come in offering big money then we will sell. What I take comfort in is that I back Bramds and Silva to go find a replacement that will fill the gap.

Richarlison de Andrade. Great Brazilian name. We are getting Evertonians. Our new manager is dynamite and it's a big world. When Alan Whittles nephew with his blonde hair and his genetic everton reproducion is? Well. We're Evertonians and we'll describe anything just in case we get caught.

Richarlison will end up at Barca or Real later on in his career, he's still developing which is frightening

Nabbed him at just the right time didn't we.

An inevitability we will sell if he keeps this form up but tbh it's just modern day football and it's always been that way and always will be. Softens the blow slightly when it happens.

The thing that gives me comfort is knowing with Brands and Silva we have a contingency plan that will prove dividends in the long term. We are in good hands no matter what happens.

He's just wonderful. Loving the personalities of all the new signings, Richarlison, Digne, Gomes, Mina, Zouma, Bernard...it's like we went to the special characters store and bought a job lot!

And they can play.

Richarlison seems such a down to earth character and is just loving the limelight. He is one of the few players that just seems to really enjoy the interaction with the fans, and celebrating his success with them.

However his career pans out, this will only be a good thing for him, and even if he leaves Everton for Barca or Real, you could only wish the lad all the success.

Idk if it was that bad; look at his position: 12 yards out, beyond the front post.  That header is absurd.  Not exactly a position you are usually super worried about a player scoring from.
