If Holgate and Gibson can't cope with league 1 strikers for 90 minutes, at least we'll know we need to do more business in January (as in sign 2 centre backs, not 1)My concern with the rotating both centre halves is Lincoln are excellent at set plays.
I'm for going strong in the cups.If Holgate and Gibson can't cope with league 1 strikers for 90 minutes, at least we'll know we need to do more business in January (as in sign 2 centre backs, not 1)
It would be madness to risk playing Mina and Keane 3 times in the space of a week or so when there's not adequate reserves. Play them in the cup or maybe even rotate a bit against Wolves in the league? I don't know. I'd like us to do well in the cups but when you haven't got a good squad and the likes of Man City have a bench that cost more than your entire team, we probably have to focus on the league. It's disheartening.
We played our strongest team against Championship relegation strugglers Milwall last season and still managed to fucking lose.I'm for going strong in the cups.
I see your point but you better believe all hell will break loose among Everton social media if he picks a weakened side and we lose!
It's the sort of thing that can start the ball rolling for a sacking if the league form goes to shit too.
It's the same every year.
Unfortunately for us that came at a time of real slump in form and we were also robbed by a shocking refereeing decision.We played our strongest team against Championship relegation strugglers Milwall last season and still managed to fucking lose.
Let's just all face up to the fact that Everton FC are not very good at football and change our motto to
"Mediocris sumus nimis"
I'd lay the blame firmly at Brands feet if we lose a CB to injury, never in a million years buying that he searched the entire globe for another CB and came up with fuck all.Silva’s on a hiding to nothing here. If he plays Mina & Keane, and one of them gets crocked then he’ll be hammered for playing them. If he plays Holgate and/or Gibson in their place and we lose, he’ll get hammered again.
I'm not worried at all, Paul. I've just been the shop and bought an orange lucozade to help my hangover and there's a McDonalds en route.We're all worried about beating Lincoln, what have we become?
It's a disgrace we didn't at least loan someone but I'm absolutely certain he looked for other centre backs but I suppose it comes down to whether the right centre backs were available and at what cost?I'd lay the blame firmly at Brands feet if we lose a CB to injury, never in a million years buying that he searched the entire globe for another CB and came up with fuck all.
Take sigurdsson off and leave him off has been awful doesn't deserve to start any game imo replace sigurdsson with BernardPickfordShould be enough to see off Lincoln. Get Coleman and Sigurdsson off when it's won. And one of the CBs if it's a cakewalk.
Coleman - Keane - Mina - Baines
Davies - - - Schneiderlin
Walcott - - - Sigurdsson - - - Iwobi
