Yeah because we can attract that type of player right now. Grow up, did you say the same over Grey and Townsend? do you think changing the manager will suddenly bring Mbappe to us? We need to stick with a manager and let him see out getting rid of a lot of this squad
I think Colonel Getafe was being ironical.
For league position, which is the immediete and most serious concern, I blame the manager 80%, injuries/lack of transfer funds 20%.
If we were comfortable mid table or higher, I wouldnt apportion as much blame.
So lets get rid of the manager and get points on the board immedietly as relegation cannot be allowed.
There is far, far too much long term strategizing going on here, this thread is typical of that.
Agree sack wafa bring in unemployed Favre, defensively solid, aggressive attack minded football, great to watch. Lets the dof bring in young unpolished players while favre turns them into the finished article, then sell them on for big money or keep. But hey this is Everton we dont do sensible.hire a manager that favors young players +fortify the academy + bring players from southamerica, cheap players (there are really cheap jewels in brazil/argentina/colombia/uruguay, buy em BEFORE they rise 1-5m tops), STOP , STOP hiring EPL trash overpriced players, like really (tosun/sigurdson..etc etc) . heck everton should BUY a southamerican club and use it to develop players , Redbull is doing just that in uruguay and brazil.
it will take time to develop a competitive team , but with no money to invest , is best to produce your own players
You're right, watched the Chelsea v United game after ours against Brentford and it was like watching a completely different sport.I know it sounds daft for Premiership players but I think most of ours just lack skill(and maybe a lot more). And General athleticism. We look so slow and awkward compared to other teams
