Evertonian in NC


He's been busy. Put himself about. Mainly though he's not done very much in most games and he's missed a few sitters. I'm not slagging him off. He's a decent enough prospect but that's all he is at the minute. I'd imagine pretty much every team in the league has a striker currently better than DCL which suggests he's probably not yet good enough to be a premier league player

He'd be performing better without the weight of expectations, the #2 to somebody like Giroud.  Or apprenticing to Lukaku.  There's just a wide gulf between "not ready to be our sole attacking option" - because the alternatives are Rooney (wandering, declining), Niasse (impact sub at best), and Sandro (mystery box).

Personally, I'd play 4-4-2 with Sandro starting next to DCL so maybe sharing the load and responsibility helps each man.  Let them play into form until we can hopefully add in January.

Hopefully "Hammerin' Hank" Onyekuru gets here next season.  :D

Probably wisest. I'd have to be seriously committed to this ruse to be red shite though. I'm on here every match day for the entire game. I know they are a bit deranged but who in their right mind would commit to watching our shite football for 80 hours a week just to annoy you lot

I'm 99.9% sure that the guy who talks to Jim White and says he's Moshiri isn't actually him

It's an epic prank that's being played

We can but hope.

Mental and physical fatigue eh

Other teams don't seem to have that problem

Why is a chairman talking about mental and physical fatigue. At the start of October. For a squad that has had over 200m spent on it. This only underlines my suspicions that he hasn't got a clue about the football side of things but would like to give the impression he has.
 
He might know about how to run a successful and profitable business, how to gain finance at the top level, how to approach multi million pound projects. But understand the mind of a professional sportsman? Don't embarrass yourself.

The two holding midfielders are doing Koeman absolutely no favours either. How 2 clearly high class players can be deployed in holding midfield roles and allow the opposition to casually stroll into our box and have a free shot on goal is beyond me.

It's a travesty that we didn't sign another centre half when it was clear Funes wasn't going to be fit. Ashley Williams is diabolical at the best of times but it looks like his legs have completely gone now.

I'm pretty sure Koeman hasn't told Schneiderlin to become a coward and shy away from the ball, only to pass it simply sideways and backwards when he gets it. Yesterday there were plenty of opportunities for him to move to make space for the player on the ball, be bold, think offensively and spot a gap. He just stands there, thinking his role is to sit in a 15 yard radius in front of Williams and Keane and do nothing constructive.

We've turned into a team full of pussies, with no-one apart from Rooney looking like they want to take any responsibility. Rooney's problem is he takes too much, whereas Koeman should be telling him to stay up top so we maintain some sort of shape.

It's all just a bit of a mess really.
