I still don't think that Sam should be here next season (I'm happy for him to prove me wrong with a good run between now and the end of the season) . I think if he sticks with the same system and largely the same personnel where possible we should get 7th spot. The team need time to gel.

With the exception of Mangala (who for me deserves more of a chance to prove himself) I think that the whole team played well on Saturday.

As regards the Schneiderlin incident, my perspective was that the fans were booing the substitution, not the man. This was unacceptable either way. I think it will make or break Schneiderlin if he takes it to heart. He will either see this as a wake up call, and improve his performances, or he will be first out the door in the summer (wouldn't blame him either way) . The third option could be that he genuinely doesn't care of course.

{Ed025's Note - my view is that it was directly aimed at schneiderlin tommy, forums seem torn on whether it was justified or not but for me booing your own player is not on, people are pointing out that his lazy attitude warranted that response and that the paying public have the right to express their opinion on someone who disrespects the club with his poor attitude, i suppose they do have a bit of a point but its not my bag mate..

I don't agree with booing your own players even if they have been anonymous in a lot of games. I blame Sam as he's the one who continually picks players who are struggling/ out of form/ not good enough.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

I think it's wrong irrespective of the player's attitude. It also makes our fans and club look bad. If you were a player watching that would you want to come and play for us?

To start. I have said my piece on Schneids. booing our own players is not the Everton way. We should give him the biggest cheer ever next time he plays. However, I think Rooney in the deep role is made for Rooney. He has lost his pace, so wondering around spraying passes all over the place is maade for him. Assuming Rooney plays, he needs a defensive midfielder to cover. step in Gueye. He also needs some young legs to press forwards and help Niasse or DCL or Tosun. whilst at the same time able to chase back and cover when needed. enter Tom Davies. Those central 3 are made for each other. We can have a back 4 and 3 forwards. Walcott is one. Sig the other. So whilst I don't see Sig as a left sided player. he can do a job there. Schneids is on the bench as are a few others. that's how I would be setting the team up.

Exactly Degsy. If the midfield is running well and creating chances it takes the pressure off our makeshift defence.

That formation could give Klassen a chance in the Davies role if/ when he needs a rest. Be nice to see if Sam brings him in once we are safe.

Agree Degsy, I've been crying out for that midfield all season. Saturday was one of the first times they've actually looked like a proper midfield. Gueye does a better defensive job on his own, Rooney can stroll around deep spraying passes and Davies' high energy levels and carrying the ball forward make for a great combo.
