I like him and do think heís becoming a bit of a scapegoat at the moment.

Your thoughts?

I like him, he is becoming a bit of a scapegoat, but his performances havenít been great for a while.

I like his energy, and I liked the through-balls he was putting in when Lukaku was in the side, and Iím hoping for a return to that when our frontline is quicker, and making better runs in behind.

Solid player, nothing special and currently not good enough to be in a team with aspirations of top 6. I think a loan somewhere where he'd get a game every week would do him a world of good.

He's still only a kid in reality with a lot to learn. ...but he's not been his best as yet this season .

Had an ok first half yesterday but was pretty anonymous second half. ..although he wasn't alone .

Will be a good player in time .

Referencing the 4-0 City game a couple of seasons ago with Davies and Lookman, since -

One has been given plenty of game time, the other hasn't

Not a lot of difference in either player's progression from that game

In reality Davies was promoted beyond his ability at the time. No disgrace taking a step back to take two forward, if he was to take a year out at a lower level to play every week.

You’d think if he’s going to really cut the mustard at this level then this year is a great opportunity.

Silva backs him, we don’t really have a natural box to box midfielder so he can make that position his own if he has it in him.

I think the fans will have him crying at a service station before the end of the season.

I love him and hope he comes good but at the moment he seems to be a bit blase and his passing is suffering .I also think he has a little bit too much aggression at times which is making him look reckless and prone to a booking or sending off .I agree that he might have been pushed a little too fast and needs to step back and take stock .

He will come good given time and patience, the problem is, when the rest around him are playing shit he tries to up the tempo and its to his detriment.
Watch him with Gana who is a full workhorse Davies is a different player totally, with Schneiderlin he has to work harder, because Schneiderlin doesn't pull his weight as much, but looks better because of Davies workrate.
That's why he was made captain for the cup game, he's earned it.
I see a different Davies to most on twitter like.
It's the roll I way

Fed up having scapegoats.

I think we should sell the scapegoats and buy proper goats.

He doesn't have to grow into a star to remain a very, very useful piece of the Everton puzzle.

And there's still ample time for him to grow and improve.  I'm perfectly fine with Tom Davies, and don't want him going anywhere, for any length of time.

Who was he supposed to pass the ball to yesterday?

DCL, Tosun, Sigurdsson/Niasse, and Walcott/Lookman spent the better part of 90 minutes standing in a horizontal line next to their markers.
