With January fast approaching what players do you see leaving / loaned out. players such as jags - baines etc who are in their twilight years won't be happy sitting on the bench for much longer, especially if the current squad stays fit / no suspensions.

{Ed025's Note - i see niasse and mirallas definitely going goodison, jags may also be on the move but i think baines will stay as backup for another season or 2, williams i feel will also depart but im not sure on the younger lads who will have the chance to prove their worth so january will be interesting mate..

So what about players in then Eds?

{Ed025's Note - i think a centre forward and a right back will be top of the list penysarn, i would just be guessing on names at the moment though mate..

Yeah an out and out forward would be nice ed, we got the class in midfield who could feed him, anyway how's the golf going.

{Ed025's Note - the golf is awful penysarn, i play off 14 but it should be 24 mate, the thing is i dont know what im doing wrong...turning up is probably the answer..

I got some good golf advice many years ago, an older friend said that I was standing too close to the ball, AFTER I had hit it.

Oh how nice it is to be Blue again. Over in Turkey again watched the match last nite with some fellow Blues on the big screen. The Turks love us because we have Tosun. The beer was great and the football served up a thousand times better than the last 6 seasons. All the positional problems we had (no left sided players/ no decent cover for full backs/ poor keeper/ too many inexperienced players) have either been dealt with or will be dealt with by a manager who has no fear of making decisions. Yes he makes the odd mistake. no-one is perfect. But so far I can only think of one or two tactical mistakes he has made. He has us attacking again. something that slowly dissappeared after Moyes left and was hugely obvious when Lukau and Barkley left. I think Mina will be in soon. I also think Davies and Gomes will be in with Siggy soon. If Mina is the defensive giant we are missing, then some clean sheets might come. Then the goals we are scoring will start to mean less draws and more wins. As I said, Happy Blues time again.

Bet it was great being in Turkey when Tosun smashed that one in Degsy.

He’s going to have to be some player in order to get in that team over Zouma and Keane. Both of them have been rock solid the past 3 games. It’s a real shame we went out of the cup against Southampton otherwise we could have experimented with Mina and a few others.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 14:10:58
The Mina one is really hard to call. Do we go with a partnership that’s working but temporary or do we replace Zouma with Mina to get what is a more permanent option. Tough one to call which to be fair I would struggle to make.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 16:48:38
How about three center-backs for away games against the top teams? Not sure who we would drop to make way for Mina but might be worth a try especially since Mina would be useful for corners.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Oct 2018 09:09:56
I prefer the 433 we seem to be playing BlueMike1. It is far more entertaining and just needs tweaking. I am guessing Mina will be an attacking threat at set pieces too. These are all nice problems to have again. Rather than the last season ones of wondering how to get the ball in the oppositions half!

Never like to raise any negatives especially after a good win but Walcott has to be dropped in my opinion. Just doesn’t cut it.

Agree2 0Disagree

1st for assists and 3rd on goals after Sig and Ricky. Not too shabby.

He was pretty ineffective yesterday but has stats like BJU says. But now Lookman has given the manager something to think about.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 10:59:50
I think it was more to do with the RB and LB not being allowed too far forward to overlap due to Townsend and Zaha. Both him and Bernard were isolated.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 13:26:26
Walcott is one of those players who worries defenders just by being there. Interplay between him and Seamus was bound to be a bit rusty. Nice to have Lookman applying pressure on both him and Bernard though, something that has been lacking in the past.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 13:35:28
I see where you’re coming from with his stats even if it is just the 2 goals and assists but I think he’s been pretty poor all season. He does absolutely nothing for 90% of the game, misplaces passes, doesn’t do enough defensively and quite often misses easy opportunities. That miss when Sigurdsson played him through was criminal, not that it mattered in the end but real quality players step up and take those chances when they come. Clearly Silva sees something in him to have him starting every week, but I think once Bernard gets fully up to scratch Walcott will be in and out the team (I think he’s better suited to away games when we play on the counter) and Tosun will come back into the ST role. More than likely a lot of you will have a different opinion but I think if we’re to be a top quality team then we need to be ruthless and drop underperforming players such as Walcott. Remember the guy couldn’t cut it at a bang average Arsenal team last year.

3rd game on the bounce with least touches of an outfield player and is averaging 1 tackle a game and 0.6 interceptions. i no his job isn't to win the ball but for me that shows a real lack of involvement in the game.
He frustrates me as he's a top player but drifts threw games then has moments of brilliance, bit more involvement and effort and he would be a star where as now he's looking a bit of a weak link.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Oct 2018 09:13:08
Like I said, at least the manager is being offered other options from other players now. Often in these situations, a player gets one goal and all the confidence come flooding back. His stats over many seasons have been better than now. A bit of patience may be needed.

The international break clearly broke our rhythm. It took us 70 minutes to get it back but I thought we were excellent throughout the match. We never looked in serious trouble until the pen, but it was a safe pen and Pickford punished them.

The most pleasing thing for me is that we had ideas on the bench and the manager used them well. All three subs were attacking options when it would have been easy to give Mina minutes, Silva went for the kill instead. Well done Marco.

Man U away is a free hit so to speak, but I would love to pick up points there. If we can then we are on a well earned run and that could really put the top six under pressure.

Finally, whilst I understand that palace are a team we should be beating without being disrespectful, we did a better job of overcoming them than you know who did with one shot on target against Huddersfield. Yet they are looking to win the league. Really pleased, very positive and ultimately feeling blue in the best possible way.

COYB.

One shot on target for Everton in that game. Surely not good enough for a team with top six aspirations!

Hey johny1989 he is only having a little dig at our rivals. allow him that little luxury once in a while. His main point is the improvement on last season and I am 100% in agreement with him. There is no comparisson between our current squad and the one we had last season. The squad had been badly managed fot 5 or 6 seasons and at last we now have a manager who has brought some real quality in and is also using the youngsters at a rate that allows their progression. Compare the squad of yesterday with any squad from any of last seasons games and the difference is obvious!

i no degs just does my head in mate, celebrate the blues forget bout them, also just a point, until wer consistently above them i wouldn't throw too many shouts about them round, there playing terrible but are joint top conceded 3, scary thought is at some point there gunna come good and us slagging at them will look very very silly.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 14:06:31
Thanks Degs, and Johny1989 I will try not to embarrass you in the future. arhhh who am I kidding. You got no chance mate. I will never stop winding them up and being wound up in return. I just enjoy having digs at that lot too much to ever stop. But as Degsy said it’s about the winning so let’s just enjoy that too.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Oct 2018 06:32:30
doesnt embarrass me maybe i came off a bit harsh there, i just want r fans to celebrate what wer doing and just let them get on with what there doing, sorry if i seemed a bit a you no what mate. COYB.

More faith needs to be shown I Lookman. I have been saying this for ages now. He makes things happen. Plus Richarlison shouldn't be played as a striker.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 20:31:08
I don’t see why we need to be so rigid in our positions?
Richarlison, Bernard, Walcott, DCL or Lookman they can rotate their roles through a game. Teams find it harder to pick players up when moving into different roles.
I know he spent most the game on the floor and got some stuck today. Who would take Zaha though he would add to the above names?

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 21:30:44
nah mate leave him at palace, spent so much time on the floor i thought that sad haircut of his was actually a mop.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 22:27:24
I can't believe they wanted more than 75 mil for him.

As for Lookman I think he's has to earn his place. His attitude hasn't been great but Silva seems to handling him well.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Oct 2018 11:03:28
It's not about rigidity for me. It's about him looking like one of our best players so far not playing in the position he does so well in.

3 games 9 points no negatives please, a few tweeks in the January window and we will have one hell of a team.

Think we are all happy Evertonians at the moment GB and as you say a few tweaks and we will hopefully have a bright future with Marco, Marcel and the team they are trying to build.

I love the fact that we can keep going to the final whistle and capable of scoring late goals. Not everyone will relish playing us. Thought the substitutions once again worked well. I am convinced we have a master tactician in charge. Old Trafford will be trembling already lol.
