Player Valuation: £10m
At least Rafael is no Ole.
I blame Benitez for not winning this game and injecting uncertainty in the squad with the Iwobi change.Thing i stick up for Rafael as he is the right nan for the job, but he badly messed up yesterday.
However you cant pin it on him alone, when professional players are making mistakes like yesterday.
Townsend, Pickford, Richarlison and Gray, the rest were terrible.
That team on the pitch should of seen the game out, theres was just far to many errors, I've genuinely never seen a capitulation like it
But i dont, in fact i know it wont be, why? Because Benitez is incapable of fixing it. I didnt need 9 games to know that much, his last 10 years told me that before he ever stepped foot on Usmanov's yacht. I worry about people who believe he is capable of fixing us tbh, nothing he has done shows any evidence of that and the real question is, how much more is going to have to be fixed once he is gone, be that in 1 month, 6 months, 12 months or 5 years. This miracle you are waiting for, where he gets backing and and he somehow undoes the so many wrongs of the last 7 years, isnt happening, he dosent have that in him im afraid and that is the question, how much time does he get to add to the list that needs to be fixed? because as sure as night follows day that list will get longer not shorter while he is hereIf you expect the last 7 years to be fixed in 9 league games all I can say is you're gonna be in for major disappointment as not even Alex Ferguson could grow Michael Keane a backbone.
I never demanded him sacked after a pre season defeat. I also haven't made comment on him for weeks now until yesterday. You literally said that in your eyes I'm not a supporter. I don't support the manager, I support the club. And fully believe this appointment is a mistake. So I'm not going to cheer him. Are all the fans who booed his sub and left after Watford 3rd and 4th goals not fans either?Im pretty sure 90% of Goodison don't want fans attending who want the club to fail.
You've been on the managers back from day one therefore you aint a supporter in my mind.
That's not me saying you aint an Evertonian its saying you are happy to cash in your supporter card when it suits you which for me isn't support.
Slate the manager making bad decisions that fine, demanding him sacked after a pre season friendly defeat is something else.
I’m not middle aged but old so hopefully you will debate with me.Nor am I a Geordie.I was fuming but at the right targets:
Moshiri to an extent
The gutless players who've thrown manager after manager under the bus.
Do these idiots slamming the manager really believe everything gets suddenly rosey if we sack him tomorrow? Have they been in a coma the last 7 years under 5 different managers ranging from young progressive to experienced Champions League winners?
Im more than happy to debate with sensible people but when its just a group of angry middle aged blokes just annoyed that the manager once managed Liverpool then I dont have time for that pettiness.

When the 5th went in, did you think "I'm enjoying this
What excellent management"
