Heard a rumour at the match last night that Niasse stormed out when he found out he wasn't starting, hence why Sandro was on the bench.

On a more positive note, Lennon, Kenny and Gana played very well last night. You can see why the side hasn't changed much over the past few PL games. For me, Schneiderlin and Martina were the weak links.

Wow would be shocked if that was the case with Niasse he’s conducted himself impeccably during a long stressful time so would be a little crazy to suddenly throw his toys out the Pham 😳.

Several online rags reporting that we are in for Aubameyang in January. just thought you would like the laugh.

Blue Tommy

1.) 08 Dec 2017 00:03:12
Big Sam did attract big names while at Bolton. Why can't he do the same at Everton?

2.) 08 Dec 2017 04:47:59
Because Aubameyang wouldn’t choose us ahead of the massive options he has.

3.) 08 Dec 2017 08:16:29
I don't think he has many options.

4.) 08 Dec 2017 08:30:52
He’s 28 and in his prime. He will not choose Everton as a destination to spend possibly his best football years.

5.) 08 Dec 2017 14:15:39
Totally agree NBTB mate, some posters on here seem to forget what Big Sam did at Bolton, good post mate.

6.) 08 Dec 2017 14:24:53
I'm not saying he will but I'm not saying he won't either. Swan, I thought you were all for aiming big?

Lukaku's boots has to be filled. Big Sam is a persuader. As I said I'm not saying its going to happen but at the same time I would not be surprised.

7.) 08 Dec 2017 14:50:19
I'm with you on that one NBTB mate, in fact I would go a bit further than that and say Big Sam has more of a chance of bringing in bigger names than Koeman did.

8.) 08 Dec 2017 17:25:18
Might be hard for some to see that GuernseyBlue but I know where your coming from. I agree he has better potential to get top names in imho.

9.) 08 Dec 2017 18:25:36
Why do you feel that Big Sam can get the bigger names in?

(Not having a pop here, just wondering what it is that gives you that idea)

10.) 08 Dec 2017 20:34:18
That doesn’t work, the question wasn’t “do you want Aubameyang”, it’s a discussion on whether we can get him or not. I’d love him but to say he has no options is ridiculous.

Look across the park at his former manager who needs a striker with pace.

Or Atletico when Griezmann leaves.

Or Real Madrid when they finally realise Benzema isn’t very good.

He has plenty of interest, do I want him, yes, can we get him? I seriously doubt it, we are probably the 8-9th best attraction in the league right now. Plenty of clubs need quality strikers, I highly doubt we would stand a chance of getting him and if so, why would he leave Dortmund to come here?

11.) 08 Dec 2017 21:48:47
Good post Swan. My thoughts entirely. Not knocking those who are viewing it differently, just can’t see us pulling it off.

12.) 08 Dec 2017 21:57:16
Simple answer. Money.

13.) 08 Dec 2017 22:20:17
Although SA laughed in the press conference today when asked about this and said “not a chance”. So unlikely.

14.) 08 Dec 2017 22:59:22
Good post Woburnblue along with the power of persuasion.

Youri Djorkaeff, Jay-Jay Okocha, Fernando Hierro, Ivan Campo ring any bells?

With Bolton now. Why can't he bring top players to Everton?

15.) 08 Dec 2017 23:11:45
Came across very coy in press conference about it really. Didn't hear him say an answer either side.

16.) 09 Dec 2017 02:46:15
Flair players without massive interest from other teams

It’s like us signing Deulofeu and saying it’s a big name, it’s not, he’s known but he’s just an exciting player, not many out there for his signature

Aubameyang on the other hand.

17.) 09 Dec 2017 02:59:42
I didn’t hear an answer one way or another but have heard him state Lukaku needs to be replaced which has been glaringly obvious lol.

18.) 09 Dec 2017 13:32:01
Good point Southern Toffee.

Swan that post made me burst out laughing. Don't take it personally. Your young so you probably don't know those players mentioned. You couldn't know them being young.

It is an insult to those players to compare them to Deulofeu. Nothing against Deulofeu but he is in the infancy of his career.

Those players mentioned above done it all. Look them up if you want. They played at the very top.

Where I sincerely hope Deulofeu plays in the future.

19.) 10 Dec 2017 02:00:23
Oh I’ve heard of them and don’t use “nearly burst into laughter” as a way of talking down to me

The point still stands, were the biggest clubs in the world all interested in all of those players, if not then the post is pointless.

20.) 10 Dec 2017 15:07:41
Fair enough Swan. I did ask that you not take it personally. Obviously you did. I don't take on to know players before my time because I couldn't possibly know much about them. I was not talking down to you at all.

I obviously don't know who was interested in them at the time. There may well of been so called 'big' clubs trying to get them.

The simple point was they were 'big' names in the game and somehow Sam attracted them to Bolton of all places. I'm sure they plenty of offers elsewhere. But somehow Sam brought a good number of big names to Bolton. Which indicates to me he is persuasive.

Fair enough if you can't take that point that's your choice and that's fine. Finally, I really didn't mean anything personal.



20 Oct 2017 06:12:04
I was speaking to some people who are in the know after the game last night (they are fairly reliable and I believe them, but as always it's up to you) . They told me these 4 things:

Lookman is off in January because he can't settle on Merseyside and wants to move back to London.

Koeman does not speak to Unsworth very often at all, and does not ask for his input. Not too much of a surprise there.

Apparently yesterday before the match at some point Koeman and Rooney had a blazing row. I was not told what it was about.

Blue Tommy

Tick tock tick tock countdown is at 75 hrs until Moshiri pulls the trigger as we certainly won't get a result Sunday

Roll on Mondays so our season can start again.

2.) 20 Oct 2017 08:21:57
Trouble is if he goes, then he goes with massive pay out that he doesn't deserve.

3.) 20 Oct 2017 09:11:53
Better than the trouble it would cause to keep him. Better of the 2 evils is to let him go imho Uran.

I wanted him at the beginning. Those 4 points may well be true Blue Tommy. Certainly would make things easier to understand if they were.

4.) 20 Oct 2017 10:03:44
Who do we replace him with? Moshri clearly believes we need a 'name' Manager and with Benitez turning us down the job has now officially become a poison challice.

5.) 20 Oct 2017 10:09:45
I think his arrogance will be his downfall!

6.) 20 Oct 2017 10:28:03
I don't believe he has turned us down as I don't believe he has ever been offered the position yet, for me we need him to get us out of this mess and to a safe position in the table, he is master tactician and player love to play for him.

7.) 20 Oct 2017 10:37:21
No point fans worrying about pay offs etc. It is those in charge of the club who accept the reality that football does not reflect any other "normal" employment situation.
It is definitely not the first and won't be the last of rewards for failure. Loyalty payments are exactly the same for players.

8.) 20 Oct 2017 10:45:47
The only other thing I got from the conversation is that Barkley would be prepared to stay if Koeman went. I personally thought that myself anyway tbh.

9.) 20 Oct 2017 11:37:01
Blue Tommy I live in the Formby area were many of the players and management live.
As for Lookman I can understand that but there can be no doubt his problem of home sickness has been exacerbated by Koemans treatment of him .
I think it is disgusting when someone inept at their job waits to be sacked when they are extremely well off already .
Koeman should be ashamed of himself and resign but he won't .
As for paying him off it is hard to swallow but it's in relative terms only a small amount compared to another transfer
Sad times to be a blue
I just cannot understand the board who must know the outcome
Someone said they read our comments but if they did he would have been gone by now as the customer is always right - oh I forgot we not customers just daft Evertonians
Very Angry Blue.

10.) 20 Oct 2017 13:32:00
Koemans pay out will be a great investment in protecting and stopping further drop in clubs assets and over all value. He is making some decisions in team selection that can only be seen as him trying to orchestrate termination. Or sabotage to insure he walks with max pay out.

11.) 20 Oct 2017 22:33:46
The Benitez turning us down story has originated from The Scum Newspaper. We all know how reliable the stories from that rag are now don't we.

12.) 21 Oct 2017 19:02:51
I've never understood compensation payments when managers get sacked. If I got sacked for not doing my job properly the only thing I'd get is a P45.

{Ed025's Note - me neither windsor..



24 Sep 2017 00:45:49
Now it gets interesting. We will know what kind of manager Koeman is in the next week or so. Davies and Niasse saved his bacon. I think he would have been out of the door if we had been beaten 1-0 today. We will see if he has learnt anything from today. He should have already learnt that we can't play 4 slow no. 10s. It will also be interesting to see if he can swallow his pride and start Niasse in the next PL game. If he starts with the same team on Thurs as today then I will happily give him a lift to the airport myself.

However so made up for Niasse. He's become a cult hero because he's the underdog, and because he is a model professional with a great attitude when faced with a difficult situation.

Blue Tommy

1.) 24 Sep 2017 02:32:52
Niasse can't play Thursday anyway. Not in Europa squad. Kenny needs to play as does Davies. using Kenny as a sub is a waste of a substitution. He should be starting. today we could of had extra attack with Lookman or Vlasic on as sub if Kenny was played from the start.

2.) 24 Sep 2017 05:48:52
I agree. The fact that Niasse can't play Thurs is more of a reason to start him against Burnley as he also has fresh legs. Koeman has some big decisions to make. IMO he can't play both Rooney and Sigurdsson unless he ditches the 2 defensive midfielders (which for me means benching Schneiderlin, who has been awful this season) .

3.) 24 Sep 2017 10:56:38
Delighted with Niasse but imho it is too early to start him. Around the 55-60th minute I'd introduce him. Get him more established and confident for a few more games before starting him.

I'm for one second saying he doesn't deserve to start. Simply saying that I think it would better for him and less pressure if it was left a couple of more games before starting him.

4.) 24 Sep 2017 10:58:22
Agree blue Tommy, Schneiderlin is liability every game he has got himself booked within 20 mins with a ridiculous tackle. Niasse is a credit to the club and his profession with his professional attitude and behaviour despite the way he has been treated. Hope Koeman has a ounce of Niasse's claass and admits he was wrong and that he is going to give Niasse a chance, because in my opinion he is what we have been missing. Thought we looked a better when Rooney went off, far to much going through him.

5.) 25 Sep 2017 09:52:48
Only problem with starting Kenny is that we become very susceptible to diagonal ball due to his size. That is only reason i can see that Koeman went for Cuco who is far taller. Kenny offers a lot more pace and quality in his crossing but bottom line is that he is first and foremost a defender.

6.) 25 Sep 2017 12:26:35
Coleman is no giant dave.

7.) 25 Sep 2017 19:46:57
I don't think size matters where full backs are concerned. Baines ain'y massive and neither is Coleman, and they've not done to bad!



31 Aug 2017 11:01:41
I take everything with a pinch of salt but according to the rags Niasse is joining Palace for £10m. Good business if true and may leave the door open for Benteke to move to us if we don't get our top targets.

Blue Tommy

1.) 31 Aug 2017 13:29:33
That's Everton paying Palace £10m?

2.) 31 Aug 2017 13:51:47
Good luck to him. Hope he gets game time there and is successful, albeit not against us.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 18:27:02
I really hope he does well. Not really his fault what has happened and has stayed professional and respectful.

Haven't posted on here in a while. Made up with the start to the season although it will probably only take 1 defeat for the boo boys to return.

Unfortunately I usually find myself a tad optimistic, but I'm seeing a few signs that Silva could be the real deal. For example, making Davies captain the other night was the perfect way to build his confidence up, unlike Bobby who just praised his players until his words meant nothing or Koeman who seemed to want to criticise his players until their spirit was broken.

Of course Silva is well known for making an immediate impact and then not necessarily delivering long term, but I suppose we will find out. Either way I'm excited for this season, although Silva is at an advantage because anything performance-wise would be better than last season.

Blue Tommy

1.) 31 Aug 2018 09:31:33
BT. There’s nothing unfortunate about being optimistic. You carry on mate if it brings you happiness. And so far I’m pretty impressed too which may be more down to the contrast from last seasons show that anything else.

What I want to see which is my only concern is that Silva needs to stick around and help with this project. Which goes against his record so far. But maybe this will be a good fit for the guy. So who knows.

Until then it’s just nice to see us bombing forward with pace and intent. Even if that makes me nervous for the defence (which I always am so no loss there) . So for now it’s good and could get even better with some of the new signings yet to make their mark.


2.) 31 Aug 2018 09:48:49
Good post BT same as you mate.

3.) 31 Aug 2018 10:25:41
Its taken me near on 4 years of depression to have it lifted! I actually can see the positive things happening that others were pointing out to me. I just hope the other new signings are as high quality as Richarlison. Certainly the youngsters are coming on leaps and bounds. My first game for ages the other night because I am living in Devon now and personal reasons. but our kids played some lovely stuff. Holegate will be some player in a season or two. Dowell has all the attributes too. I could go on and on but with a few signings here and there, things could really start happening. The manager loves trinagle football. Little groups of players combining to disrupt the opposition and break them down. I am loving it!

4.) 31 Aug 2018 11:40:43
Good to hear your new optimism Degsy and don't worry, I think all the new signings are quality.

5.) 31 Aug 2018 11:41:50
Haven't heard from you in a while degsy mate, nice to hear you are looking up stay well mate.

6.) 31 Aug 2018 16:10:37
Yeah got to my 1st game weds nite GB. Really impressed with those youngsters. They really are coming on leaps and bounds and Calvert-Lewin looks about ready to give Tosun a fight for his place. Davies was class throughout and Keiran Dowall looks about 1 season away from being top quality too. We already know Lookman has ability. Banningeme also has shown he will be some player. It will be really interesting to see what team finishes this season because with Holgate looking better and better and young Kenny showing some ability too, then look at Richarlison and Pickford and we suddenly have the basis of a squad for the next 5 or 6 years minimum. David Unsworth really does deserve a pat on the back and some recognition for the work he has done. Yes the manager has done wonders but these kids were ready to step up before he arrived. If we can hold on to them and add a couple of others in. the sky is the limit!

7.) 31 Aug 2018 18:19:20
Good old Rhino eh mate.

8.) 31 Aug 2018 18:39:54
Optimism on here. Not on my watch sonny Jim.
Ha. Onwards and upwards.

9.) 31 Aug 2018 18:46:36
That is my point about keeping Lookman Degsy, Calvert is a cracking player and like Tosun can hold the ball and yet only young. On Lookman, I have no or little knowledge of football, but I do have knowledge of Management of people (many people) . If a person comes to me (well HR) and states they categorically do not wish to continue, then they are either released or if under substantial contract, either pay that contract out or find someone/ organisation to pay it out. Crucially in this situation, there is no indication from the player himself or his agent that he has requested to leave.

10.) 31 Aug 2018 23:23:33
To be fair ktf950, Lookman has had rumours and stories surrounding him. But none have been actual quotes. The manager says he wants him. He says he was injured on Weds so could not be considered. He adds that he hopes he will be fit for the weekend. So only those at the club know what is really going on. Lookman might have a poor agent or be getting bad advice? Who knows other than those at the club and Lookman himself. I am hoping that he does in fact stay and develop with some of these other youngsters. We have others in many positions but he would add that other wide position to Richarlison.

He can even play off the front man. He has natural ability and a strong shot as well as pace. So with maturity he will become a good player if he listens to his coaches. I think people are expecting him to come in before he is really ready. The same has happened with lots of our youngsters. Young Davies was exceptional when first on the scene but then sort of look lost. But this season seems to have recovered and is again looking good. This happens with some youngsters and they should not be judged on this dip in form because they still have many years ahead. If they are overused they seem to burn out for a while.

I think that happened with a few of our youngsters last season due to injuries to many of our first choices. I suspect you already know all of this but thought I would write anyway because I am so happy with their progress and want to respond to some comments from last season whereby someone said Davies was not good enough? Ridiculous comment about a 19 year old who is playing in the worlds most difficult league against world cup winners etc! How about waiting to see what he is like at say 25? that's another 5 years of experience!

11.) 01 Sep 2018 07:30:02
Spot on degsyp. Excellent post.



07 Aug 2018 13:08:00
Unpopular opinion alert- After all of the money we've wasted on players who either can't make the grade or just don't fit in with the way we want to play, I don't want us just signing A. N. Other at centre back just for the sake of it. (I don't care about the money itself, it's just that it's hard to get rid of players who are on overinflated wages, as we've found out this summer) .

Rather than sign the next Per Kroldup or a foreign Titus Bramble for £45m it would be better to work with what we've got, as I'd certainly rather buy quality than just anyone available because we are running out of time (with the exception of loan deals) .

In that vein, I agree with a poster below who mentioned that Keane may be worth persevering with. As mentioned he spent much of last season in between Martina and Williams, with a decidedly lazy Schneiderlin in front of him. Add to that a new club, 3 different managers, being in and out of the team and with different defensive partners every few weeks it's little wonder that he has looked so poor.

Another issue is that he is now partnered with Jagielka. For me, Jagielka has always worked best with a powerful and quick player next to him (Lescott, Distin) . Keane is perhaps a bit too similar to Jags for that partnership to flourish. Despite Jags undoubted quality, his pace has completely gone. Keane knows this and probably lacks a bit of confidence in Jags for it, especially seeing as Keane isn't the quickest himself.

If we can't find at least one good CB (and I really hope we can) then Marco will have to find a way to make it work, be that by giving time for Holgate and Keane to forge a partnership, or sorting out the defensive mids to give Jags and Keane adequate support.

Blue Tommy

1.) 07 Aug 2018 15:13:05
How many times has jags been wrote off for being slow and his legs gone.
The same jags as last year who's legs had gone when he set up the goal against Liverpool after beating 20 other players.
Once he's fit he's still pretty quick, in his head and his legs.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 16:47:08
I wasn't writing him off, it's just that I don't think that him and Keane compliment each other's skills. I still think Jags has a lot to offer, but moving forward maybe it may benefit to persevere with Keane and a new CB partner than to stick with Jags every week, as he only has a couple of seasons left at the top level at best.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 21:07:43
I'm struggling with Keane, is he going to come good?

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately no mate..

4.) 07 Aug 2018 21:28:12
I have to agree Ed. He's had enough time now and he doesn't look any better than whe he signed.



18 Jun 2018 13:42:12
Everyone going on about Shaqiri, who in my opinion is another Mirallas with a bad attitude. Mentioning Lookman and Shaqiri on the wings. I just want to know, what has Walcott done wrong?

I thought he was one of our best players since he signed, always wanting the ball, always attempting to move it forward, quick skilful with a few goals thrown in.

This is why I think we can make do with what we have on the wing. Lookman and Walcott will do.

The priority for me is a CB and a LB, then if we can a CM.

Blue Tommy

1.) 18 Jun 2018 14:54:42
Fair shout Blue Tommy. Walcott could even go inside alongside Tosun? Either way, a squad needs more than 11 players these days. But I take your point. Walcott was a great signing under Allardyce. (that should get the pigeons fluttering)

2.) 18 Jun 2018 15:01:09
Don't think anyone is pushing Walcott down the starting line-up.
Shaq is twice the player Mirrales could ever be but I agree his attitude is a stinker

Lookman is still a baby so if anyone expects him to start 38 games, they should be pointed in the direction of the internet and be forced to read up on the game before embarrassing themselves with waffle and tosh.
He is going to be a star but he will be on the bench for large parts of the season. And frankly he should be buzzing with that. Do you think We only need 2 wingers for an entire season?

3.) 18 Jun 2018 15:24:30
Stay clear of Shaqiri lazy and bad attitude.

4.) 18 jun 2018 17:31:49
one good game in five, so thanks, but no thanks.

5.) 18 Jun 2018 18:51:23
My two original points were that nobody has mentioned Walcott as an option in the few posts below, and that I don't believe Shaqiri is the answer.

I wasn't suggesting that we have only 2 wingers all season, nor that Lookman can last a whole season (I do however believe he should be given a good run of games to see where he is development-wise) . I just think that this position is less of a priority than others. Bolasie can fill in and do a job when Lookman gets tired (obviously if we sell him we do need a replacement) and we have Vlasic, and even Dowell and Calvert Lewin can do a job out wide if necessary (although not ideal) .

It is going to take 3 or 4 transfer windows to fix us, so we need to look for replacements in the most problematic positions first (for me, CB and LB, followed by CM) . That's not to say that, hypothetically if a loan or transfer for a player like Rashford (who would solve cover out wide and up front) came up we shouldn't go for it, just that it's about prioritising.



28 Mar 2018 12:04:33
I haven't posted on here for a while as to be honest I've gotten a little disheartened with all things Everton after this shambles of a season. I've still been going to the games, it's just that my passion has more recently been replaced with complete and utter apathy.

I don't know whether it's due to the atmosphere in the ground, the wild inconsistency in results throughout the season or the often terrible football on display. I can't wait to see the back of this season and hopefully with a new manager, new director of football and a few good signings will come more optimism and I will see the Everton team and Goodison Park that I love again.

I think there are two things that we have learned from the Sam Allardyce debacle this season. Firstly, that appointing the right person is more important than ever at this moment. There needs to be a manager that the fans can get behind. This could be a newcomer (e. g. Fonseca) , a well respected manager (e. g. Ancelotti) or an up and coming manager (e. g. Dyche) . Secondly, that manager needs to be given a chance to create something, and needs time to make mistakes (particularly if they have never managed in England before) .

Realistically, every manager is a risk. Even if Simeone decided that he loves the Blues because Brett Angell was his idol in the 90s, there is still no guarantee that his style of football would work with what we've got and what kind of player is available to us. There is no quick fix. I just hope that we can get behind whatever manager we end up with next season (Hopefully not Sam) .

Blue Tommy



12 Feb 2018 12:17:06
I still don't think that Sam should be here next season (I'm happy for him to prove me wrong with a good run between now and the end of the season) . I think if he sticks with the same system and largely the same personnel where possible we should get 7th spot. The team need time to gel.

With the exception of Mangala (who for me deserves more of a chance to prove himself) I think that the whole team played well on Saturday.

As regards the Schneiderlin incident, my perspective was that the fans were booing the substitution, not the man. This was unacceptable either way. I think it will make or break Schneiderlin if he takes it to heart. He will either see this as a wake up call, and improve his performances, or he will be first out the door in the summer (wouldn't blame him either way) . The third option could be that he genuinely doesn't care of course.

Blue Tommy

{Ed025's Note - my view is that it was directly aimed at schneiderlin tommy, forums seem torn on whether it was justified or not but for me booing your own player is not on, people are pointing out that his lazy attitude warranted that response and that the paying public have the right to express their opinion on someone who disrespects the club with his poor attitude, i suppose they do have a bit of a point but its not my bag mate..

1.) 12 Feb 2018 12:53:58
I don't agree with booing your own players even if they have been anonymous in a lot of games. I blame Sam as he's the one who continually picks players who are struggling/ out of form/ not good enough.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

2.) 12 Feb 2018 13:05:13
I think it's wrong irrespective of the player's attitude. It also makes our fans and club look bad. If you were a player watching that would you want to come and play for us?

3.) 12 Feb 2018 13:41:51
To start. I have said my piece on Schneids. booing our own players is not the Everton way. We should give him the biggest cheer ever next time he plays. However, I think Rooney in the deep role is made for Rooney. He has lost his pace, so wondering around spraying passes all over the place is maade for him. Assuming Rooney plays, he needs a defensive midfielder to cover. step in Gueye. He also needs some young legs to press forwards and help Niasse or DCL or Tosun. whilst at the same time able to chase back and cover when needed. enter Tom Davies. Those central 3 are made for each other. We can have a back 4 and 3 forwards. Walcott is one. Sig the other. So whilst I don't see Sig as a left sided player. he can do a job there. Schneids is on the bench as are a few others. that's how I would be setting the team up.

Exactly Degsy. If the midfield is running well and creating chances it takes the pressure off our makeshift defence.

That formation could give Klassen a chance in the Davies role if/ when he needs a rest. Be nice to see if Sam brings him in once we are safe.

Agree Degsy, I've been crying out for that midfield all season. Saturday was one of the first times they've actually looked like a proper midfield. Gueye does a better defensive job on his own, Rooney can stroll around deep spraying passes and Davies' high energy levels and carrying the ball forward make for a great combo.

Richarlison is happening and I'm fairly happy. I'd bite your hand off for Batshuayi, Loftus-Cheek and Tierney. Don't want Luke Shaw, weight and attitude issues. I would also want Yerry Mina.

Couldn't see Davies or Niasse causing this kind of trouble tbh. Look at the source and forget about it.

The U11's would give our first team a run for their money the way we are playing this season.

I think you're all forgetting about Tom Davies.

To the six who are unhappy above. you do realise where we would be without his goals this season. He's saved our bacon on about 4 occasions.

I'd still take Arjen Robben in a heartbeat (not that I could ever see it happening)

I think that the main reason I couldn't give a stuff about losing Barkley is because Sigurdsson is and always will be a far superior player. My only gripe with Ross is his rat behaviour.

I hope he proves me wrong but I don't think Mina is known for his pace to be honest. I think what I really want from him is someone who can lead the backline, and his aerial ability at both ends of the pitch.

Fantastic stuff Degsy. I haven't been on here a lot recently but when I have I've enjoyed your renewed sense of optimism this season. You and I have clashed in the past over various things but it's great to see that a lot of Blues, yourself included can see that we are moving in the right direction.

I wasn't writing him off, it's just that I don't think that him and Keane compliment each other's skills. I still think Jags has a lot to offer, but moving forward maybe it may benefit to persevere with Keane and a new CB partner than to stick with Jags every week, as he only has a couple of seasons left at the top level at best.
