Anybdy else worried about TO MANY signings . a lot of round pegs for square holes at the moment i feel . How long will it take to find the right combo? . iv seen teams struggle to intergrate 3 new players Let alone 8 an possibly 3 more to come . I can honestly say i can't name my prefered starting 11 . An when i do i worry about its Pace . don't get me wrong . what a AMAZING dilemma we have an IMO the best manager for the job . I just think any push for europe could have to wait for 2nd half of the season . @ Ed what would your prefered starting 11 be Sir?

{Ed025's Note - i see the same problems as you mick and thats why i have been asking for patience from supporters and for less of the knee jerk reactions, we have a really hard start mate and it will take a bit of time and experiment before we see the team at its best, i will refrain from naming my preferred 11 until we have finished recruiting if thats ok but i believe there is no place for the likes of mirallas, calvert lewin, lennon besic or mccarthy in our first team, not to mention williams and funes mori..

I agree, I think because we are blues that we have forgotten how to enjoy the moment, rather than looking for the catches!
My team to date would be:


Still believe we need a creative playmaker, new centre back and striker.

Ed025 You are spot on with that assessment. If you want to be top four. You need to be ruthless and these players are mid table players.

{Ed025's Note - a couple could be decent back up players spennie but our first 11 must be of superior quality, sentiment must be put aside and only players with a future at the club should receive squad status imo mate..

Great question above. Personally, I'd keep besic. his problem has been injuries, but for me the lad has talent. I'd give him a season to prove it. Mirallas, has talent but seems to be a bit of a sulker. not sure how he'll react to a part on bench. Williams is the weakest in our defense imo. he was great at Swansea but average to poor since arriving at Everton. I'd rather play jags or give one of the yound lads a crack. hopefully browning or Galloway can make step up next year. Regarding starting 11. Gana and Schneiderlin all day. Tom Davies should be there for now also. and I've seen enough of Sandro to think he should be there. baines also but all other places I can't decide.

The thing is to be successful on all four fronts we will need not a best 11 but a best 18-20. We can’t possibly go through the season focusing on just 11 players. If you look at what the top six are doing you will see what our tactic is too. The main thing is not so much identifying the best but how to keep them all fresh and happy during squad rotation.

Remember the league cup starts early in the season (later for us if we are still in Europe) so we will need to use a large squad very early and that’s where I see some of the fringe players mentioned above being very important to us. That’s what the top six will be doing. So to make it a top 7, we will have to do the same.

Ur right Toffee. and that's one thing I have to credit RM with. he always talked about bringing right characters in. so hopefully RKand SW are doing just that.

I think Davies is a good enough, and needs to be playing regular premier league football this season. He is going to be a great player and I don't want his progress to stagnate to accomodate new signings.

Fortunately I believe that Koeman has set up the squad so that he can rotate the midfield tactically depending on who we are playing. I also know Koeman gives the most in form players a run in the team so will give Davies a chance if he performs.

Thing is, if we get gilfi and say for arguments sake Giroud, what would your team look like then, who would you drop out to start with, I would keep sandro, klaasson on the bench to start with, these guys have to adapt to the premiership and we don't want to give games away, give them a few sub appearances till there up to speed, still with gilfi, Rooney and hopefully Giroud or someone like him, it would be a very good team.

{Ed025's Note - i would start sandro all the time heart as i think this guy could be amazing, i might also interchange klaassen and rooney as well and perm any 2 of davies, gana and spyder playing behind gylfi, with giroud up top...i wont mention the defence as we wont need one mate.. :)
