    @Ring master - do you know when Rafael's press conference is this week?

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    Hi all, Just checking that you all know that we are 6th on the table, equal on points with Man City? Have kicked out James, Kean, Bernard, Walcott, and a bunch of other wage drainers and have now cleared the ship for a new period of investment. Tosun, Siggurdsson, Kenny and Delph all out at...

    I completely agree. This why is I still hold hope (most probably, foolishly)

    Quality again tonight. Great attitude. If James had played that chip into Digne, we would have had 20 pages of fawning. All class that.

    2021/22 Alex Iwobi

    For some reason, I can keep thinking that he might turn into something, but his first five minutes was one of the worst I have seen. He gave it away at least 5-6 times. Annoyingly, he generally is central to many of our chance creating moves. When he gets it right he is effective, but the gap...

    2021/22 Tom Davies

    He was embarrassing today. Big opportunity to start the game and lead the football team against lower level competition when we really needed players with over 100 games of senior experience to stand up. He is simply not good enough.

    2021/22 Anthony Gordon

    Showed enough, at age 20, in one of a handful of starts he has had in the last 12 months, that he is at least worth persisting. I'm hardly convinced, but I'd like to see him given a chance to prove himself. He is tidy, has pace, linked up well, so has some creativity. Clearly lacking size at...

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    We've been a lot better this year, when we have had the right players at our disposal, than we were in the last 8-10 games last season. No DCL, Richarlison, Allan, Mina, Coleman, James, Pickford - what do we expect. With the majority of the above, we have played relatively well. Definitely...

    Simple. Top 10 starting XI when fit. Bottom 10 squad.

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    100% made the right decision fielding the weakened team tonight - imagine if we lost Allan as well tonight. Not his fault that the squad at his disposal is a joke. All eggs rightly need to be in the Premier League and FA Cup basket. Beggars can't be chooses, but we get through another couple...

    2021/22 James Rodriguez

    So like the previous two links, we are waiting on James to decide on what he wants to do. To me, it's quite simple. He either wants to play or doesn't. If he does, then he should be saying yes quickly. He is still going to get his £200k a week anyway. It's up to Everton to work out how much we...

    2021/22 James Rodriguez

    Well, if Pipe is correct, then he certainly wasn't injured for the weekend, but protected from injury ahead of this potential UAE move. You would have to think that this is the final throw at the stumps. If this deal falls through, then he must be integrated into the squad. Hopefully any move...

    Considering the state of the squad, I'd be taking the risk on rotations. Would rather focus on the League and FA Cup. Begovic Kenny Holgate Godfrey Digne Davies Gbamin Townsend Gomes Iwobi Rondon Lonergan Branthwaite Mina Keane Doucoure Allan Gordon Gray Simms Weirdly, not fussed about...

    Hope he is fit enough to start on Tuesday. Perfect game to get more minutes into his legs. Need to give Allan a rest as well.

    The shining light today. What a start to his Everton career. Long may it continue. Forgive me for the thought, but would love to see him on the end of a couple of James through balls...

    Well, I don't know David, but perhaps being selected for England in the Summer, only to just miss the cut would have to provide some minuscule piece of evidence that the lad has quality. You don't make the England squad unless, you know, you're actually playing and are a starter... And on...
