Total opposite from last year ...we look to have a real player in him who can not only defend but spot a forward ball too ... he's just going to improve imho alongside either Zouma or Mina .

He doesn't get caught out of position as much I've noticed. He was always scrambling last year, even when we were playing in a much more defensive setup. We can credit Silva but I think we need to credit the lad for getting his head right too, he looks to be concentrating better.

Scrambling is the perfect word. Whenever I picture Keane from last year - that's exactly what he's doing in my mind's eye - scrambling to turn as the ball passes him to his right-hand side. Possibly had a bit to do with opposition targeting Kenny as well though.

Had a mixed bag year, but ultimately I think he's a shown that even when he's good he's shite.

Knock a ball over his head into the box and he just can't deal with it.

Run at him quickly and he can't deal with it.

He's quite good on the ball, better than I thought originally, but probably not as good as Holgate.
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.

I'd agree with all that apart from him being quite good on the ball, I think it's his biggest weakness. I don't mind him but think we can do so much better. It's Zouma +1 at cb for me. Mina really needs to improve to stand a chance of getting a starting spot as he's hardly covered himself in glory when he's played

Been so disappointed with mine this year.

Quite like him on the ball, he can pass. He can't drive forward which Zouma, Mina and Holgate can all do though.

We could really, really do with getting some proper minutes out of Yerry Mina. Was one of the highest rated prospects on the planet about 12 months ago.

Think we've either got potentially a proper player there and we just need to get him playing and settled, or we've been sold the biggest turkey in Everton history.

I read something from Keane after Koeman went on his merry way saying Koeman tried to turn him into a ball playing CB, here's an idea don't buy someone on his strengths which are good old fashioned English CB strengths then try and turn him into a ball player just buy a fucking ball playing CB in the first instance

Do not forget that he is only 26. He will only improve for the next 5 years and he has 7-8 of his best years ahead. A better year for him this year, and more to come without a doubt.

EDIT - Just to add to this - Look at the ages of our back line, and it tells you that our best years are most definately in front of us:

Pickford 25,

Kenny 21, Keane 26, Mina 24, Digne 25

I'm not his biggest fan but definite improvement this season no doubt.

Doubt we will sign Zouma so we need to start getting his partnership with Mina going for the remainder of the season I reckon.
