We are the most boring team in the league. While we are solid at the back we rarely look like doing anything in the attacking half unless James gets a bit if space. DCL needs 6 chances to score 1 and Richy is living on his reputation and the fact he has no competition for his place. Carlo doesn't seem to fancy King and the midfield apart from James won't score 10 between them again this season. Carlo has certainly rebuilt the defensive side his season but has a hell of a lot of work to do in attack.

Aren't you a bundle of fun! Work in progress, ricktee, this team will change over the next few windows so it's not as if this is us forever is it?
DCL has had a great season, how many goals has he scored? So it's not as if he's not scoring goals. I think you will find we have plenty of LW's, just ask ed002! King has done nothing in any game he has been involved in, not surprised he hasn't cemented a place in the starting 11.
CA has rebuilt the defensive side, as you say, now he will move on to other areas that need improvement to make us more complete. Nothing to worry about, mate, we are on the right road now after many false dawns.

To answer your question, DCL has scored 14 goals. 10 in the first 9 games of the season, and 4 since then 👍.

I agree ricktee mate, We are playing the same as when fat sam was here, but a lot just can't see it.

Lee1616 we may be playing as SA did at the moment but that may have something to do with the fact that we have a squad consisting of 12 fit 1st teamers and a bunch U23 available to the manager. If you look at the 1st set of matches before we started getting injuries we where playing some decent football.

Cant really recall a decent performance all season injuries or no injuries. This season is just about progress mainly as we are no longer on a manager merry go round and the players carlo bought in have been a success. We are tripe offensively. In reply to previous comments (what left wingers? ) Never seen an everton side lacking so much width at top of the field. Re king, nothing left to play for so why not chuck him in and see what happens. I'll eat some humble pie, I was totally wrong about keeping sigurdsson/ get rid, along with. pickford Delph, tosun, besic, walcott, iwobi, gomes. If mina and richarlison want out then fine by me. Would like to see Simms return from Blackpool to play next season. Coleman and davies really should only be fringe players.

We need
Right back
Right winger
Left winger
At least 1 creative midfielder

Build a team around godfrey keane centre back partnership digne, dcl, James.

Dacoure class, allan class when fit. interested in seeing nkonku and Thierry small (but what was the thinking with 2 young left backs? Rest of the squad garbage.

TD, just to add to your stats; DCL has scored 19 goals in 30 starts across all competitions.
I don't consider that to be too bad, I'd expect him to score a few more before the end of the season so that's not a bad return over a season. Especially when you consider the years when our top scorers barely broke into double figures.

I'm confused bluepotato, I thought it was you that I asked how many he had scored! You are of course right with your stats inclusive of Cup matches, though I must admit in terms of his progress/ impact I find his league stats against Premier league opposition more enlightening.

Don't know why you think we need a goal keeper we regularly have 3 in the squad regardless of who's injured. We also have too many creative midfielders we need more athletic midfielders that can score they don't need to create but be on the end of the chances we do create. For me its Right back right mid/ wing 2 mids one that can play cm/ rm one that can play cm/ lm if required but more importantly can break forward get on the end of chances and put the ball in the net every so often and a additional forward.

Hahaha TD, you inspired me to look it up as I knew the lad had scored more than 14 in total.
Stats can be deceiving and we can spin them to suit our own narrative, I suppose. If we are going to judge a player on goals then we should take all competitions into account, imo. If he gets over 20 goals for the season in all comps, then that's a good return don't you think? It certainly shows DCL is improving.
