I donít really agree. Weíve got good players but weíve very little who the 6 sides above us would be interested in. We donít have much individually that really excites. Iím hoping lookman steps up. We have to find a couple more though

Every single club above us and a worrying amount of those below have a Ďsuperstarí style individual baller.

Look at what happened to west ham when they dropped a bit of star power into their absolute dumpster fire of a club in Payet. Real attacking talent lifts a team a level instantly.

We donít make chances, we donít shoot a great deal, we donít have any real 1v1 attackers to open space and teams and get the fans on their feet.

Itís the last on our list of priorities, but it is absolutely still a prioritity.
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.

lookman, Sigurdsson, Walcott

Thatís a pretty good attacking three in my eyes.

Tosun is the business as well.

I know what youíre saying and you can probably say Walcott / Sigurdsson should get you goals and assists, they really should.

Sigurdsson probably the closest to a real dangerous creative attacker, but we know across his career he has been more of a big moments in open play rather than consistently creating from open play type player.

Lookman we canít bank on at all but Iíve personally got hopes.

We need a game changer, itís really plain to see in my opinion.

The biggest priority definitely.

In order of priority, although the amount money you should spend would not necessarily go in this direction.

1. A cm who can pass forward / dribble forward
2. A C.B. who can play almost every game. Either mountain, pace or baller not sure which way he’s going to go.
3. A L.B/LWB who can play plenty of games and look to be sharing first team with Baines eventually
4. Striker with a different profile to challenge Tosun
5. The dangerous forward, goalscoring wide player who can play 10 would be ideal.

Thatís it. Itís not just the 6 above is it. Palace West Ham and Leicester all have at least 1 that really excites. That could maybe make a step up above any of ours

Think thatís why most of us wanted Maddison. Just blind hope he could be potentially great

Weíve gone from Deulofeu, stones Barkley and lukaku to nothing. Granted itís not worked out perfectly for all 4 but there was genuine hope amongst many of us that they could all be great

They are but they are all kind of functional other than lookman whoís just starting out. We have consistency in them positions but not magic.

The team will be the star under Silva.

Feels like our first eleven is very Moyes functional from his early years doesnít it.

Which is criminal considering who and what we had 3 years back and the money weíve spent since then.

A lot of hope testing on Lookmanís shoulders this season. Be gutted to see the fans go all Barkley on him just because heís not delivering what we thought he would.

Think he'll be sound under Silva, he'll be allowed to attack

Yeah,, but we didn't really expect them to be great still with us.

We have the players to play how Silva likes to. We now need to identify players who are better than what we have to improve us.

Schneiderln can play as deep lying passing midfielder. He is good enough to di it. Gana and Davies as the pressing midfielers with any 3 of Tosun, Walcott, Lookman and Sig up front and we have a very good team.Sig could also be part of the midfield three. great engine on him.
Farhad Moshiri, Alisher Usmanov, Cenk Tosun, Muhamed Besic, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Ademola Lookman, Oumar Niasse, David Henen, Barack Hussein Obama, Confucius... Everton Muslims growing stronger...
