How good are the 2 signings. I don't have a clue. Any Ed's that have I formation on them or anyone else?

{Ed025's Note - according to reports they are both good young talents BT, but they have been playing at a lower level and the prem is not easy, my concern would be who wanted them at everton?, if its benitez then hopefully they will be integrated pretty quickly but if not and they are for the future it will not help us much, but thats me being the eternal pessimist i suppose mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, I'm hoping it was rafa and he's starting to get the players he wants within the club. Young hungry players. as much as he brought rondon and townsend in. Gray is pretty young still and he did bring through some youngsters at geordies, longstaffs and others

We need these type of players rather than the iwobi, rondon and the like.

The only question mark is can they step up to the level of the prem and perform consistently .

{Ed025's Note - thats the $64,000 question geoff, i will be happy if these lads come in and are part of the current plans, but if they are seen as the long term future not so, we need players for NOW mate..

Players for now has landed us with over aged, over paid squad of lazy mercenaries.

{Ed025's Note - but these are young guys who will be hungry and have not cost a lot chris, i just hope the plan is to use them now mate..

It’s getting close to backs against the wall stuff so it might just force his hand… we can’t keep playing the same starting 11 and keep losing - something has to give, surely?

I hope they are not the choice of Benitez but the product of prolonged and thorough scouting. These days, scouting is more important than managerial appointments in my opinion due to managerial reigns being very short. Don't get me wrong it is important to get some players that the manager wants tactically but that can leave you with a mess if you don't have a long serving manager. It has been in unbelievable how many transfers we have got so wrong.

BT, I think that may be part of the problem. The scouting team got a list of players, the chairman bought them, possibly without the approval of the manager and we ended up with loads of number 10s and LW's.

I would hope this has been more of a collaboration between all parties who discussed a list of potential signings and agreed on.

Ed would have to believe that with Coleman looking his age and Digne out the door, then these boys have to be seen as starters.
To be fair they only need to be able to tackle and make a pass to be an improvement.

{Ed025's Note - if they play i will be very happy brass but i still dont know who actually signed these guys mate..

05 Jan 2022 17:59:22
I still think Gray was a Brands buy and would expect these two are as well.

I’m putting Bergovic, Townsend and Rondon down to Rafa.

As for Iwobi… whoever is responsible for spending that amount should have a stern talking to!

Haha just make up that Rafa brought in the old and brands the new to suit your anti Rafa agenda BR.

And yeah you're right Ed they need to be played now, even if they make mistakes. The same goes branthwaitte and Dobbin imo. I'd really like to see Onyango get some game time as well. We've all been calling out for the 3 in midfield. One thing I hate is that the mangers we've had in the past won't give them a go even though they play well when they come on. I don't understand why they get put on the bench with no intention of playing them. If I was a young player at Everton I'd have done the same as smalls.

{Ed025's Note - they have to play them chris, its obvious that the old guard are not up to the task mate so what have we got to lose?...but im not holding my breath..

05 Jan 2022 22:48:05
I’ve no Anti-Rafa agenda FatChris - I just truly believe we were in for Gray and Patterson before Rafa joined. The Ukrainian lad may be a Rafa buy but fits the mould we were supposed to be using. If Rafa gets us paying decent football and we compete in games, I’ll be happy as a pig in you know what.

I’m all up for blooding the young players as long as it doesn’t lead to another Keane or Bernard with shattered confidence (albeit they were older) . Hopefully, these new signings will hit the ground running and get some decent game time.

That, and we start picking up some points. Soon.
