Looks like it, maybe if he grew his hair long and rolled his socks down people would be more forgiving of poor performance, seems to work for TD who has made zero contribution this season yet escapes all criticism on here.

Genuine question, what do you see in Walcott that makes you constantly dig at people when they have a go at him? I was happy when we signed him but in general he's been a real disappointment since he came. Three goals and two assists from 19 starts this season is pretty poor. Even yesterday he started quite brightly then disappeared after 15 minutes.

We got him for reasonable money but regardless of what Allardyce will tell people his two signings have been pretty uninspiring.

I don’t hate Davies, I don’t hate any Everton player but the hatred and vitriol that was being spouted on the Leicester match thread, 20 odd shouts of hatred and “fuck off Walcott” was grossly disproportionate to the comments that any other under performing player got and he was by far not the worse player on the pitch. I raise the topic of Davies occasionally because I really think he gets a free pass every time he has a bad or mediocre game, I don’t see the criticism of him much on here, just looking for a bit of balance.
I hope and am sure that Davies will fulfill his potential, seems like a nice lad as well but cut some of the other player like Walcott and Bernard ( currently getting slated a lot on here) a bit of slack.

Think you're exaggerating a bit here. There was nothing like 20 odd shouts of "hatred and vitriol" aimed at Walcott, criticism yes but there's a difference between that and "hatred", and Davies gets nothing like a free ride on here or probably anywhere else. But one's a 20 year old just learning his trade while the other is a 29 year old, 13 season veteran with more than 300 Premier League appearances who has been less than impressive this season and people are rightly questioning why he still gets picked. You've never rated Davies and that's fair enough but the two situations aren't really comparable and not nearly as extreme as you're making out.

With regards to Tosun I can only imagine he looks pretty shit in training. He's never getting up to speed getting 15 minutes here and 10 minutes there or getting thrown on for 7 minutes while we're getting handed our arse by Spurs.

If we don't get rid of him in January (which seems unlikely if there's no one coming in) then I think there's a case to give him a run of starts and see how he gets on.
