Of course.

There are 78 points available from the bottom 13 compared to 36 from the top 6 though.

At this stage in our progression, how we do against the top 4 is much less important than how we do against the rest. The players we've signed should be judged accordingly.

While not disagreeing with you in general, we also need to take into account that any point against a top 6 team is a point they don't get, and thus lowers our target too.

You've got to apply the reverse as well, any point we prevent those below us getting reduces the likelihood of them catching us.

Yeah but I'm not worried about that. :)

Stones needed to work with Guardiola, or someone like him, to realize his potential.

Exactly.

And Everton needed a 'defender who can defend lad' .........like erm, Ashley Williams. The most uncultured and limited defender for 12m i have ever seen,

I don't know how this comes into it.

Stones was a shit defender for us and would've continued to be shit without the guidance of Guardiola.

We sold him for a lot more than what he was worth to us, so we won with the deal.
He got to play for the manager that can turn him into a great player, so he won with the deal.
City got a potential world-class player for a fee they could easily afford, so they won with the deal.

It was one of the very few transfer deals that was a no-brainer for all parties involved.

How we then spent that money has got nothing to do with it.

@Thomas, and I'm saying this with the best of intentions, just please fuck this whole argument off.

Seriously.

You've got this idea that Everton fans don't like flair players, of course you can't bring any evidence to support it, while there is plenty of evidence that the opposite is true (see Manny Fernandes). So instead of trying to cobble together some meagre evidence, or just admit that your original idea was a mistake, every month or so you return only to peddle the same idiotic general accusations. And don't bring Aspergers into it, this has got nothing to do with that, Aspergers doesn't make you stupid.

You're just in love with your own idea that just doesn't wash, that's all. The reason people get annoyed with you is not that they don't like you personally, it's just that you refuse to give a shred of evidence to your theory and then get all uppity when people don't accept it as given, like you do.

HE brought mental health into it.

No, he didn't.

He CLEARLY did.

He made an ad hominem attack and actually admitted it was not even to do with football and said 'your off your head mate'

No, he obviously didn't. But if you want to see it that way, fine.

I just wanted to help you out but you're clearly managing just fine on your own. Go ahead, continue spouting shite.

@Thomas fans like a hardworking player because it embodies the effort we feel that we ourselves would put in to playing for Everton. That doesn't mean we don't appreciate the flair players. Remember the clamours for Manny Fernandez?

Or how much shit defending Stones got away with just because "that" penalty.

All previously underperforming players deserve to have a go under stable management, Keane is no exception.

Is he fit? Has he been dropped or is he not 100% fit

He went off injured the same time Baines did, IIRC.
