Very enjoyable player to watch. When heís having an off day it can be frustrating because he can be dominated, but thatís the middle of the pitch in the prem.

A team thatís missing forward motion and vertical passing as much as we have been this year really canít afford to leave him out.
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.

That 3 in midfield is the one definitely.

Need to find some form of that we can play away from home...

Neither Davies Klaassen or Rooney are 10s anyway.

Sigurdsson is a 10 but nowhere near on the ball enough to play 10 for a big club.

I know he is Dutch but Klassen doesn't look an outstanding amount of technically gifted. I'd say Rooney and Sigurdson were better in that department. From what  I've seen of him, he links up play well.

Yeah heís not technically gifted - closer to a lampard than a Gerrard or Scholes.

Late runs, arriving at the edge of the box, or linking up around the box.

The lads whoíve come through this year de beek and de jong look miles better technically than davvy ever was.

Everton fans have become #10 obsessed.

Just in time for the rest of modern football to leave them behind in favour of goal scoring wide men. Superb.

To be fair we have just bought one of them whose record stands up to most in that position.

Agree, looks a superb addition.

Can see us going in for rashford in the summer.

Would bite your hand off even on loan, doubt heíd consider it tho.

Looks like DCL is starting to fill out finally. He needed another stone of beef to fill out his frame, next season he might be closer to what we need. 

Donít think heíll ever be a proper big man 9, so considering that heís done brilliantly at times this year in that role.

See him as more of a mobile, dare I say, firmino type - mobile, linking up and creating for others while getting a few.

Just my pure blag opinion like, probably miles off.

Doesn't offer enough infront of goal go ever be a number 9 IMO. Maybe it's something he could develop overtime but I think it's something you have or you don't. Maybe having someone like Walcott could help him with that though.

Think he can still become a very good player though in a kind of Danny Wellbeck mode. Tall, fast, powerful striker who'll never get you more than 12 goals a season, but will offer a lot in other aspects of the game.

He's already improved massively from the player who broke into the team a year ago.

As for Davies, he's the business. Got everything you need as a midfielder in the modern game.

Looks like the lads are making the most of this Dubai trip as well. Holgate getting on some model in the clubs and that.

Is right the lads.

Agree re: DCL

Davies just missing pace / power / dribbling. Doesnít look an athlete which is a shame given his mentality.

Agree re: holgate smashing worldies.

Think DCL is more Sharp than a Lukaku. He's more mobile and can control a high ball better  (most of the time)

But about one hundredth as deadly in front of goal.

DCL doesnít even seem to even really make an effort to go for goal with runs etc.

Iíve also never ever seen him strike a ball cleanly. Even when players like Kane and lukaku are young or out of form, they can strike through a ball cleanly.
