Totally lost me Ed002 saying Luiz signing doesn’t improve our chances with Zouma. If Chelsea’s ban stands then they will need to ensure they have sufficient centre halves already in their ranks. If Luiz didn’t sign then would be an additional gap for a centre half. With him signing, if indeed he has, they have him, Rudiger, Christiansen as first choices. Hopefully ( for Everton) Zouma would be only 4th choice - if not further back.
If Luiz were to go then clearly he moves up the list.

So as I say totally lost me with that one.

Agree re improvements of DCL
He is not a goalscorer. Maybe he will learn but I don’t think we can wait 2 years to find out.
He suits certain games when we need to defend and then have a striker who can hold the ball up.
He doesn’t suit games where we need to break down a tight defence.

Billscrocodiletears - had me checking the calendar there mate. Thought was April 1st!
You are not actually suggesting that we are worse off than last season?
If you are mate then i have to ask when you last actually went to a game at GP?
The whole ethos of the team / culture has changed.
Last year we stumbled into 8th, based on tying not to lose.
This year, despite a dreadful run over Xmas we have already amassed more points than last year, we have just beaten 3 of the 'sky 6' at home in consec home games having beaten none of them for 2 years, we had 22 shots on Saturday in one away match - FatSam didn't have that in 10 away games!
Yes the squad still needs improvement, yes we have had a couple of off games but it takes time. Players are buying into Marcos culture now and anyone who actually GOES to the game can see and feel that around GP.

Marco is going nowhere.

The tweet about Gomes is a little embarrassing now isn’t it!
Hammers fans saying his performance yesterday was the most complete CM all season - yet Everton fans don’t want him.
Do you actually watch games people? Do you even consider he hasn’t played much football for some time, had virtually no pre-season, was injured for first few months of season and then asked to play constant games, at a temp that is probably alien to him, The poor lad was knackered.
He is a quality player and would be superb business if we manage to keep him.

And I’m sorry but if you don’t see that then football really isn’t your game.

Blue Tron / Dan - spot on.
People on here and elsewhere are clinging to this 'its the fault of zonal marking' and i really do wonder if they actually watch or understand football. Watch the Wolves game for example. WE give away yet another stupid free kick. We then have players stood either side of Jiminez outside the box.

The free kick is played and BOTH our players are virtually stood still and allow him to run onto the cross and head home. What has that got to do with zonal marking? Absolutely NOTHING. It has to do with players having a little aggression, wanting to stop runners, block runners, or just plain and simple winning their own individual battles. And we are losing far too many of them.
And please don't tel;l me that it is Silva's fault because does anyone really think he tells players to go out and lose those battles?

In the Watford game clearly Zouma got angry cos one minute he was charging up the pitch and then after the game is in the refs face. Now clearly the second one is wrong but it would be nice for the whole team to show the same aggression / desire throughout the game - and not just when a decision goes against them or when we play the big sides.
Next 4 home games will show if they have the fight for the club and if they dont, however much ability they may have, then close the door on your way out.

I am not saying Silva is blameless but vast majority are not his players and he is dealing with dross bought by Koeman and FatSam. He will be there next season regardless so let's get behind him and the team. And let's just hope these overpaid prima donnas start to show a little bit of fight for that shirt.

Unfortunately he is one of those who think the world revolves around him. He was only ever interested in HIM. Yes he scores goals but the team spirit and work ethic is so much better without him. DCL is not yet the answer but the lad gives so much more to the team than Rom ever did. Big NO from me.
