I didn't mention DCL or Kean I said the midfield wasn't good enough.

My post wasnt just directed at you skylark. It is more to point out that players don't simply reach 21 and stop getting any better. They are young and still have plenty of time to develop.

Christiano Ronaldo was being slated by fans and press for trying to many tricks and wasting away his career in the seasons he was 20 and 21. Needs to stop doing step over and stop losing the ball by running into blind alleys. He'd scored 14 goals in total in the league over the past two seasons.

He learnt season by season and by training hard on how to improve. The age of 22 he started to develop his game and by the age of 24/ 25 he realised his full potential.

And this guy is probably in the top 5 of all time greatest footballers.

I'm not stupid and putting any of our players in this category but it just shows you that judging a player at this early stage of their career is both naive and a bit stupid. Give time and support to these kids and they can become great.

Question for the eds, if we go into admin, can we cancel our player contracts like Rangers did or will we still be stuck with them? Sorry if this has already been covered but I could not see if this had been discussed.

{Ed002's Note - Everton are not going in to Administration and are not cancelling any contracts.}

Emre Can! What is it with Everton and other sides cast off's.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 15:03:08
Probably absolutely nothing duck, just lazy journalism designed to ruffle the feathers, we will be linked with every midfielder and his mate that currently can't get a place in there current team, last thing we need is more deadwood on our books.

Agree0 0Disagree

DFS I don’t think Can was a cast off, I’m sure he let his contract run down and leave Liverpool on a free.

Dollo, and currently can't get into his current side - as I said, cast off -.

I was watching our game on motd last night through one eye after a few don revies I started laughing to myself watching oumar niasse, he runs around and plays football like someone has threw a quilt over his head. Sorry fellas just a bit of lightheartedness.

Agree4 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 13:03:29
The fact that he’s still at the club and was brought on makes me think the guys running the club might also have a quilt over their head lol.

For me that really hit home just how bad the squad situation is. And I honestly don’t see how it can be changed quickly tbh.

Agree0 0Disagree

Yeah it's worrying, so many injuries and senior players who just don't cut it. I can't see any incoming players in this window. But at least when we get players back from injuries it will be like new signings.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 15:00:55
Loan tosun out and he scores, niasse refuses loans and is now our only back up. Grim.

Mason Holgate has been our best defender so far this season. I think this is a prime example of youngsters needing time and the need for patience with them. Look at Dier and Mustafi, they were not given the time and opportunity they needed. Same with DCL, he is really coming on this season. I believe Davies will become what we need but the problem is that he hasn't really got someone next to him that can dominate midfield and move the ball quickly. Two big positives this season are Holgate and DCL. Great young footballers. These are the sort of transfers we need to be investing in.

Agree5 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 09:03:50
I think Davies needs to step it up a bit and be the player to move quickly and pass the ball forwards. He shouldn't need someone alongside him who can do it. He's been in 1st team long enough to be the player to control a midfield. Just my opinion on him.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 11:29:10
I disagree dentilad Davies has by 21 played under 6 different managers and never had a run next to a consistent partner that's hard for a 21 year old still learning the game I personally believe he can be top quality but he still needs an experienced player to talk him through some games and Delph certainly isn't that player.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 11:52:09
Davis is not for me just not good enough the same as the rest of the midfield.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 12:26:46
Davis and DCL good subs at best, would they get in any the top 4 clubs? no.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 13:44:48
But we aren't top 4, should be looking at players in similar clubs to us, and definitely play for likes of wolves palace, maybe not Arsenal.

Lee1616. DCL, your having a laugh, do you watch the game (s) .

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jan 2020 13:52:11
I don’t see how DCL’s just a ‘good sub’. For me he’s a great player, still very young and 9 times out of 10 plays the shift up top on his own, before he started scoring this season I actually would of said the same thing. I think he’s underrated and we’re lucky to have him. Not that we’re anywhere near the top 4 anyway but I’d put him ahead of Abraham at the minute and he’d probably get a game at spurs cause of there situation too. That being said, just ones opinion 👍🏻.

Davies at 21 is doing superbly. He's in a position that has probably the second most pressure and demand and he's handled it well. He'll peak in around 6 years time and the amount of experience he'll have by then will stand him up against most. Gomes has learnt his trade at top clubs like Valencia and Barcelona, Schinds at Man Utd, Delph at Leeds, Villa and City. Davies in a struggling Everton with 6 managers.

The demands of our fans is completely unrealistic on young players. Even Gordon on his 45 minute debut got stick for yesterday. Stick after 45 minutes of football at the age of 18!

Look at DCL. Absolutely slaughtered since he's been in the first team. Gets a manager who understands what a centre forward should be doing and changes the way he plays and all of a sudden he's scoring goals. He's 1 off Salah and 2 off Kane. He's even got a better goals to minutes on the pitch against these two because he's not even started most matches this season!

As for Kean. 19 years old in a new country, new league, new team, three managers in 6 months. He shouldn't be a regular in this team for another two years and should just be in an around the 1st team. DCL should have an experienced CF with him not a 19 year old who's played a handful of games in the last 2 years.

Kean has played 1800 (20 games equivalent) minutes in 2 seasons for Juve and just over 700 minutes for us and yet everyone is expecting the lad to be top scorer in the league.

The lack of understanding is remarkable.

Sorry Davies just isn't good enough, falls over when tries to go past players, no pace, gives ball away.
I wanted him to be a success obviously with him Being a blue and a scouser, but he just doesn't do it for me.

19 Jan 2020 16:30:07
What every one forgets is davies is like a 5th choice midfielder if gomes is for an gbamin they start then u have delph then sigg its just because we are the bad with injury's he has to play the kid isn't good enough he is championship player at best.

Thought Gordon did well today.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 19:18:35
I agree, more energy and positive going forward. Think with our current situation he's worth a game. His enthusiasm alone will do wonders.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 19:53:36
He was ok, but not good enough to change the game. Which is what you want from subs when they come on when you’re drawing. The 11 we put out today are mid table at best as a collective. We desperately need Gomes and Gbamin. Tom was wasteful and slow. Delph was ridiculously slow considering he came from a lightening quick City. Walcott has 1 good game in ten and 1 good pass in 20. Pickford made mistakes but also saved us from defeat. Holgate was good but lacks height and is often beaten in the air. Digne needs a rest and Baines needs game time.

DCL was amongst the goals again and Kean just needs a goal. Need a right winger a creative midfielder. Defender and a break on the injury front and it’s all good at Goodison again.

Agree3 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 20:11:25
Think MK also needs the DCL solution. To be the 9 and play between the posts. definitely a player there and I feel for him as he ain't no winger or 10. With DCLs breakthroughs this season, it ain't going to happen. Hopefully he stays happy and gets more into it next season or we get our money back and he goes back to Italy.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 20:19:04
Gomes and gbamin!? well I hope they live up to what you expect. to be honest gomes has not really done it for me and I hope he proves me wrong because there is not one single player we have at the moment that I would like to keep in midfield.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 20:36:18
So you wouldn’t keep Gbamin even though he’s only played one and a half games. That’s harsh. Gomes is the one midfielder we have who moves the ball quickly. He can receive and turn in the same move. None of our other midfielders can do that sadly.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 21:11:21
Problem with Gomes we seen in his first season sone outstanding performances, so I think the bar is set very high. I agree he's not hit those heights this year before I jury, but even on a bad day he is absolutely miles better than anyone else we have.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 21:54:43
I wasn't having a go at gbamin mate I've not seen enough but I've seen enough of the rest and they can leave.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jan 2020 23:06:09
I’m getting to that point too Skylark. I’m desperate though to see if Gbamin can be the Gana replacement we so badly miss. Then a level of consistency from Gomes and all of a sudden we have ourselves a midfield.

Carlo's post match comments are absolutely spot on and brutally honest. Really refreshing to hear. Wish we had got him 5 years ago before we wasted millions.

Ok 4 years ago when moshiri joined the club.
