Need a left back like air! Not seeing much on that front atm.

I like Walcott is potentially on his way up to us. That means Lookman pushed down even further. We gunna lose him and I'll be gutted.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 13:41:30
I think lennon will be shiped out. Lookman/ vlasic will be cover for the 2 wide positions. I for 1 am happy with Walcott joining. He improves our starting 11 so happy days.

Agree3 2Disagree

16 Jan 2018 13:54:15
cannot argue with that mate.

16 Jan 2018 13:45:26
And why can't both play it's a squad game now and I also think Walcott will be played threw the middle a lot in rotation with tosun, am I the only one who thinks lookmans should be an impact sub for now he loses the ball far too much to start games, I think he will be a brilliant player in next few years but Walcott is the present and lookmans the future for me.

I agree johny. Good post mate.

It was reported in October that Lookman was homesick. And people. are trying to give the headlines about him moving on more credence than they deserve.
He has jumped 2 divisions. And 3ven in a squad that's surprisingly struggled, he has made some very bright appearances. Lookman ain't going anywhere. Seems the only people pushing for it are the fans on forums like this.
He's a brightstar for the future and is at the best place. He will continue to buzz from the bench and next season will want to be pushing for starting spot.
Stop trying to make a story when there isn't one. Why rush the kid? Let the experts deal with it.

Agree0 2Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:22:26
In the longer term it might be Bolasie who Lookman comes in for as its hard to come back from that long out and play week after week.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:24:50
Theo has the ability and the experience we need now. Lookman is fantastic but still learning his trade. In a team that get's limited opportunity on the ball we can not keep giving it away, and unfortunately like Ross, Lookman does the same.
There's room for Lookman, Vlasic and Sandro in the squad.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:31:22
Vlasic needs to be playing in the middle for me, we've had enough square pegs in round holes this season. Weve been crying for ages for Siggy to be played central, let's not lose another players creativity by playing him out of position.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 16:13:28
Are there two Theo Walcotts?

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 13:15:12
Just reading posts below discussing Rooney. Just a question but would you play rooney and tosun up top with siggy as no 10?

Agree2 2Disagree

16 Jan 2018 13:28:16
Wouldn't play him.

Agree1 2Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:05:04
He’s scored 10 goals for goodness sake. How could you not play him?

Agree0 2Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:10:59
Wouldn't play our top scorer 🤔.

Agree0 1Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:22:37
Sig plays 10 for me. ROONEY should play deeper and or be a sub.
I love Rooney and I'm buzzing for his goals this season. Let's be honest though, he does slow the game when we are desperate for pace. We shouldn't just be selecting him on rep alone (which I think We have done on occassion)

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Jan 2018 15:01:10
I'd give it a go, Rooney and Tosun up top, why not they both know where the goal is and Rooney wouldn't have the opportunity to slow things down.

Agree0 1Disagree

16 Jan 2018 16:14:55
How many of Rooney's goals are penalties. Subtract them for a truer reflection of his goalscoring prowess.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 12:44:58
Regarding Keane. he's come at a difficult time, its a bit harsh to expect him to pull up trees in the circumstances give the imbalance, lack of continuity of management staff and vulnerability of the defense i.e martina, plus the lack of confidence as a team as a whole. However we need a quality cb with experience yo come in next seadon. Then i think a decision should be made on his future. The teams a mess which is hardly the ideal circumstances for a player to thrive in a new environment.

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Jan 2018 13:00:48
Still think Keane and Holgate would make a good partnership. Just need to sort out the full back issue, and balance the midfield.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:10:10
I agree, but we need another quality experienced CB in the summer.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 14:20:17
Its continuity what we are after at the back and its still going to take a while longer. Once we get a settled back four and they are used to playing together and talking to each other it will obviously be a lot better.

When Big Sam first came, we started winning games. It wasn't pretty but we were getting results. Over Christmas he chopped and changed the team, partially to see what else he had at his disposal and also to rotate players during a congested period (which is understandable to be fair) . However this changing the team in my opinion contributed to the Bournemouth defeat, which was then followed by 3 difficult games, which we lost. We now look like a shell of a team and any confidence we gained in SA's first few games has been destroyed. Therefore maybe it is time to go back to basics. I'd take 1-0 wins the next 2 games to be honest. COYB.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 12:23:02
I'd take boring 1-0 wins all seasons any season tommy.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 12:31:07
We need to win 3 or 4 games 1-0 Blue Tommy and then we are safe.

I'm not sold either way on Big Sam yet but i just get disillusioned by some of his team selections, tactics and subs.
I thought against Tottenham he made probably his best team selection apart from Siggy not being in the middle, but his subs were just puzzling.

When he was at palace he would play tight if the game was a 6 pointer and a bit looser against the big boys. He seems to have adopted the same tactics with us, rightly or wrongly?

If we were in the bottom 3 when he came in i could understand that approach but for me he needs to attack the lesser teams and sit back against the top 6.

Agree with the back to basics, he needs to stop trying to squeeze rooney and siggy into the same team. Siggy should be our No10 so if he's going to play Rooney then stick him deeper and play one of Gana or Mccarthy, the rest of the team pretty much picks itself.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 16:16:51
Boring 1-0 wins will involve shots on target unless we are perfecting 1og-0 wins.

{Ed025's Note - you seem to be really in the doldrums where everton are concerned glen..

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 11:01:04
Wondering about us being linked to the Brazilian fella from barca, now don't get me wrong we need as many attacking players as we can get, but surely there are priorities, haven't seen aparts from the odd Shaw rumour, and left backs being linked, does anyone think we are going to just go with what we have ill the end of the season, it's a bit strange why this didn't happen in the summer.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 12:04:16
All good saying we need a left back, but what left would look at our team sheet and see that he will have no help in front of him because we have to play our record signing on the left wing so that Rooney can be accommodated in the team. SG is our best number 10 not a bloody left winger.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 12:11:38
If we do get Walcott then he and Bolasie/ Lookman will offer the width and protection either side. Then slimy Sam just has to play Gylfi in the 10 and bullet Rooney to bench status. You cannot play them both and certainly not Gylfi out wide.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 12:21:53
If we can't get our 1st choice then we should try to manage with what we have or get a loan in. The last thing we need is another second rate player holding down the fort on a temporary basis only to become an unwanted player next season.

So I’m prepared to get shot down and the sites a matter of opinions so here goes. I seem to be one of the only Evertonians that still believes in Mr Rooney (our top goal scorer who I believe has as many goals as one Romelu Lukaku) . A while ago he was taken out the team and we played exactly the same way (sidewards, backwards and no goal threat) . To me he’s done better than GS so far in his Everton return and I just see him being an easy player for Evertonians to blame, that being said he did have a stinker in the game against Spurs but then also wonder if his goal was allowed (which was as offside as Kane’s second goal) if he’d be getting as much bombardment from the fans this week. I’d also like to add that GS played a hell of a lot of his Swansea matches out on the left. It was for Spurs that he was used in a more of a central role. I know I’m in the minority but my personal opinion is that Rooney should be used as the no 10 as at least his goal tally’s in double figures and it’s not actually his fault the board decided to buy another 3,4 players that also can play in that position. I have my armour on lol.

Agree4 3Disagree

16 Jan 2018 13:06:29
It's not that Rooney is a bad player. It's that he is effecting the balance of the team to accommodate him. Play him as a striker or have him as a sub. Don't waste Gilfi by pushing him out wide and playing him as a wing back. It doesn't work.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 13:07:33
Fair point, Rooney has the goals in the bag and I do think everyone jumps on the bandwagon for Rooney head, when he scores he's the best, when he doesn't he's the worst and slow can't pass, stops the flow of the team ECT ECT, but take him out of the team and who have we had who can score, oh yeah sigs on what 2/ 3 goals, dcl on 2 goals, yeah I can see why we would drop him for those 2, it's just moaning for moaning sake, if we had a player like lukaku on the bench with say 20 goals and Rooney was keeping him out the team then fair point, we have to realise we are as a team very poor and it runs threw the team, how can anyone score goals when a team doesn't attack, can just point at Rooney.

Agree2 1Disagree

16 Jan 2018 09:58:31
We should be able to get Walcott at the 20m reported price. Turkeys always come cheaper after Christmas.

We need to stop believing we are are a top six side and make changes in the summer with squad and manager if needs be. right now we are rubbish but we just need to get behind the team. Until the end of season we need goodison to be rocking every game and away because right now our club needs us. big Sam isn't everyone's cup of tea and not mine either but he shouldn't be blamed for everything as this is not his team yet. He is trying to make us more solid as he has a lot of bang average players. Big summer clear out jags, Baines, basic, naisse, schnids, Keane, klassen, sandro, Joel, strecklburg, can all go in my opinon. Let big Sam bring in his own team then judge him until then stop moaning . we only need 13 more points and we are safe and we will do that as there is worse teams. let's start this weekend screaming for the blues . Come on you blues!

SA is in exactly the same place RK was last season we all knew RK needed to bring in his own players so when he spent a fair amount of money getting some of them we all rejoiced. 15 weeks into what should have been a 2-3 year project he gets the boot. Did he get time to bed in his players no but its now a results based game so fans start whinging at any prolonged difficulty and the owners fear the worst and he gets the boot. Now SA is not my favorite manager but we need to look at giving who ever is the manager time to sort out a bad run, unless we get an owner who is willing to throw endless amounts of cash at the team. As for massive clear outs and buying of new players well we have seen what happens when you buy loads of players in one go it takes time for them to gel. As for selling players well there needs to be someone who actually wants to buy them. Unless your happy to take a loss or even let them go on a free then the player really needs to want to leave in the first place otherwise you are likely to build a toxic relationship with the players that remain especially if they think their mates have been hard done by. It's not like they can be sacked for under performing although that would probably improve performances no end.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 10:36:33
Agree with most of clearout. I’d keep Keane and get shot of Williams and Mc Carthy as always injured. Get a centre half to partner Keane plus a LB. will need a lot of millions in today’s market to replace 6 or 7 players 😫😫.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 11:08:08
Agree with you sa90 there isn't no quick fix. I was just saying those players need to leave as they are either no good any more or they are just average players I wasn't saying how this could be done. So even more important to give whoever is manager time. And yes I would say Williams and Lennon I'm afraid. I think we have been put back years and we need stability not a club that chips the manager every five mins.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 11:28:02
Holgate to partner Leane. Holgate is quality jags or Williams to stay as cover with Mori to return. The players are there apart from LB it’s just getting them together for a run of games and getting confidence back 7pts in next two games would help.
Pickford
Coleman (Kenny as understudy)
Holgate
Keane
New LB
Gueye
McCarthy/ Davies/ Banigime when away, Rooney at home.
Walcott (Lookman as understudy)
Sigurdson (Klassen as understudy)
Bolasie (Vlasic as understudy)
Tosun (DCL and Sandro as understudy)

Not that bad is it if Sam plays the right balanced team

If the likes of Garbutt, Galloway and Baxter etc are not good enough get rid of them from u23’s.

Agree2 1Disagree

*6pts
* Keane.
