Enough has been said about the Sam future for or against, Here's something else. A lot of media talk about off loading Keene at the end of the season. Having spent so much money on him and still being on the young side and England fringe player I would keep him at least to see how he develops over another season and preferably in a settled partnership with A N Other CB.
To let him leave would create a situation where we are looking for 3 new CB this summer considering Jags and Williams could also depart. Isn't that too much disturbance in one important area, where if it happened most of next season would again be swopping CB around to find best combination.

I do think Keene is a good player, think there to something or someone upsetting players behind the scenes, happening to often.

{Ed025's Note - as part of a duo with mee he looked good, we may have picked the wrong half stig..

It’s difficult to really know if any of our summer signings should be moved on. Apart from Pickford and maybe Rooney/ Sigs, nobody has been given a fair chance to settle.

Agree with ed25 on this lads, as much as i like keane i think playing alongside ben mee made him look even better than he is. Top player mee, think he will end up at 1 of the big boys soon, hopefully us!

I like the lad he needs a leader next to him as he's a bit timid. More playing time will bring consistency. This could be said of all of them.

We seemed to target young up coming kids over the last few seasons. From home and a couple from abroad. But we seemed to lose sight of the fact we needed players to go straight into the fisrt team ED025. Williams only had a season or 2 left and Jags was coming to the end so adding Williams was a mistake. Mee is still only 28 so we would have got 4 or 5 seasons out of him. Keane is still in the right age group and might come good but I have seen too many mistakes from him for my liking. And Burnley don't seem to be missing him.

Burnley's demands of a centre back are different. Their style and relative success is built on thriving on limited possession. They need "no nonsense" centre backs. Under Koeman we aspired to a possession based approach. Ball playing centre backs were what he was looking for. On that basis Keane would have seemed a better option than Mee. The change of emphasis from the new manager has changed that.

If I was mr Kenwright or moshiri, I would need a good explanation why, having spent over £20m on each of 2player, these player are not automatic first names on the team sheet. Needing time to settle doesn't wash with me. The only way to fit in successfully is by playing regular.
If Everton board happy having £20 m plus players sat on the bench, then there is something seriously wrong upstairs.


{Ed025's Note - for me walsh has a lot to answer for mate..

1.) 04 Feb 2018 14:44:49
A lot is certainly starting to point to Walsh in my eyes as well ed.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes out of his depth BS..

2.) 04 Feb 2018 15:49:29
I get a feeling there is a bit of a rift between the role and SA as well ed. Tosun brought in presumably by Walsh, not played and is criticised by SA. Every time SA asked about transfers you could see the disgust in his eyes and his answers that he had no role in it. Said it a few times today we need to get this right with the right people in place or no manager will succeed, if not then just scrape it and go back to a manager full control role.



04 Feb 2018 14:25:13
Everton sign new players, then managers say they need time to adjust either to premier league, get to know team mates and systems etc. Other clubs sign players and they are instant success and hit the ground running.
Proves Everton generally sign crap players that no one else wants or we get bullsh** managers, or mixture of both. Ultimately the board are responsible for the appointments.




03 Feb 2018 20:19:13
Alladyce is a good talker. I was surprised a club of Everton's stature appointed him following his history but prepared to accept their decision.
We all know he isn't here for the long term and will never take the club forward. He is only in it for the payoff when the sack comes and he can take Walsh with him. In my eyes the main problems started with Walsh's appointment.
Better he goes now and give a new manager rest of the season to work with what he has got. Forget where we finish provided not in the bottom 3.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 22:02:43
We wanted Walsh the scout but apparently he (representative/ agent) stipulated DoF. I honestly believe that Mr Moshri is now beginning to see more of the wood and a root and branch (see what I did there) clearout will begin as soon as season ends. Hopefully we retain our premier league membership.



02 Feb 2018 10:04:29
I would like to see Coleman handed the club captaincy at end of the season. Sure there would not be many objections.

Sure Ray Wilson could do the LB job. He’s only 83. One of the best if younger posters ask.

Everton together with Arsenal are the longest serving clubs in the top tier of English football, that’s the old first division and current Premier league. Arsenal have never been relegated at all.
If last weeks result was hard to take, I remember a 10-4 defeat by Spurs many years ago.

Shamrock. Agree with your post. It’s important to have a few players in the first team who are born local. I've followed Everton for over 60 years and off the top of my head I think all local players have performed well. The exception is in recent years, Rodwell and Barkley could both have had better attitudes toward the club. If Barkley had stayed at Everton he may have got established into the England setup for the World Cup this year, but doubtful now. Okay some players may have been sold on for financial reasons.

Degsy. Wouldn’t Barry have been useful slotting in at Left Back in Baines place or even play Jagielka at left back. Using Holgate, Williams or Keane as Centre backs.
