We need the left-back position covered and a manager who can manage a team to play decent attacking football. The manager position is sorted - now he needs to be given some time to develop the current squad and our youngsters, who are on the threshold of becoming top players.

Dowell, Lookman, DCL, Kenny, Beni, Davies, Vlasic, Holgate are all showing great potential - they just need the right kind of guidance, encouragement and opportunities to develop as top rate players. Hopefully, this season will be their time to shine, under Silva.

If Digne wants to get back into the French National squad, coming to Everton will certainly help his chances - playing in the most competitive league in the world.

Liverpool voted "remain" - tell him!

Agreed. No way should 7th be our ceiling. All I'm saying is that we've come from an awful 2/3 seasons, and we need to get back to minimum 7th every year, before we even think about those above us.

Rather than thinking to come top of the bottom 13 pile, shouldn't we be looking to challenge for the top six? - At least, at the start of the season ...

None of the players we sign this summer are likely to be good enough for a top 6 side. We do need to start getting a collection of players who might be good enough for them two or three years from now though.

I find your sense of realism somewhat Sam Alardyce. Hopefully Marco will bring a little more hope for something better!

There are so many of us, that you'll have to take a place on the bench mate, until we have finished our cull of older flappers, who are not able to whinge as much as they used to.

If you flip flap the flappers, you might get in quite easily.
