I've been thinking. My wife assures me that this is not a good thing but neverthe less I have been thinking about which players have improved this season and which players have performed as we would be entitled to expect of them.
In my eyes the improvers are confined to Branthwaite and Gordon (although Gordon needs to stop diving) . Mykolenko might come in this category but it may be that he has just started to perform at a level that an international left back should. I'm putting Iwobi into a sort of twilight category of an improver who still isn't good enough.
Of the rest, I think Pickford has performed to a decent standard. On the few occasions we have seen Mina so has he. It's just a pity that he seems to be made out of tissue paper. I think that Rondon has done what it says on his tin.
From the rest, we have seen decent games, particularly Gray who has been excellent in flashes. I have Holgate in a category of his own which is "Shouldn't be allowed to buy a shirt in a shop never mind wear it on the field" but I will admit that I have always thought him to be dire and may well be harsh on him.

Holgate is an enigma - he has some decent games but also some horrendous ones. He also always looks like a booking is on the cards. I think he’s done alright this season to previous ones - not great but alright.

However I genuinely feel he should be given a go as a defensive centre midfielder. He’s a bit too rash for the centreback role. However he’s got good distribution and not afraid of a tackle. I reckon given a go in the role Allan plays he will do well.

Personally if money is an issue next season and we do lose mina and Allan - I’d rather invest whatever we can in the best centreback we can get and move Holgate into the defensive central midfield role.

Holgate is one of the worse footballs everton have ever had and should never play again for this club.

Agree with Skylark on Holgate, awful player.

Agreed Skylark he is an awful footballer.

Interesting point about
Holgate . I always thought Keane would be a defensive midfielder as his interception rates are quite good.

Holgate is a championship standard player. If he stays atleast it is looking like he will be at his level next season.

What does everyone think happened with Holgate? A few seasons ago he put in some great performances in 3 different positions. Centre half, central defensive midfielder and right back, he was carrying the team at times and then got an injury. I don’t think he’s had 1 good performance this season and has been a liability constantly.
