It's been said a lot of times, but dear God does Alonso not play close to well enough to be starting every league game right now. Yes he does have an incredible shot, as he proved today by almost scoring a very good goal, but his main job is to defend, and he simply cannot. I really think we need to give Emerson a chance at left back, it can't really get much worse on the defensive phase.
On a positive note, great that we got the win. Really had a bad feeling after Andone got on, that we would become sloppy, which we did get, but luckily we got the win, and hopefully a bit of confidence.

I’ve got no idea how he got a new contract it must have been his goals last year. We need to stop giving people contracts on past performances.

I’d try for Chilwell in January. Turning into a quality full back and he’s homegrown.

16 Dec 2018 16:12:45
Good shout king Kante when I watch Robertson think we missed a trick think he’s a really good lb and he only cost £10 million I think which in the current market is an absolute snip.

16 Dec 2018 17:11:39
Very much agree about the contract. He must've gotten it because of past performances and a few early goals and assists. Sarri cannot seriously mean at this point, that Alonso has potential to become the best left back in Europe.

16 Dec 2018 17:42:50
I think you all forgot that at start of the season he was oir second est player behind hazard.

16 Dec 2018 18:59:46
Was he? 🤨 which games were they? Oh you mean cause he scored against Arsenal second game?

16 Dec 2018 19:39:39
Against Huddersfield and Newcastle he was pretty good but defensively he's not the best. He needs to go back to the basics of defending. Good player but should be dropped if continues like this.

16 Dec 2018 19:41:53
If we assume our managers opinion maybe more informed than supporters! Didn’t Sarri say he has the potential to be the best left back in the world? Maybe that’s why he got a improved contract.

Dave was getting slaughtered a few games ago and look how he is playing now.

I’m sure Alonso will recover some form soon but I would have no problem seeing Emerson being given some more game time.

16 Dec 2018 20:17:48
Difference between Dave and Alonso is Dave has always been world class defensively he’s had his blip now he’s playing well again. Whereas Alonso has never been good defensively cause he doesn’t have pace.

16 Dec 2018 20:57:48
So, Sarri is wrong?

All about opinions but I JUST prefer sarri’s!

16 Dec 2018 21:11:51
Not saying Sarri is wrong but he said in his interview he only likes Alonso for his height from set pieces. I don’t like that one. With Rudi, Luiz, and RLC (if he starts) we have some big players.

Jose kept playing Ivanovic and that ruined him. Hopefully we get a new LB in so he’ll bench Alonso.

16 Dec 2018 22:34:29
Not sure what Iva has got to do with it.

Sarri has said he can be the best left back in the world. I might not agree with that assessment but I do know Sarri knows more than me and probably more than most supporters!

He isn’t playing well be I’m sure he will come out of his bad patch soon.

If he does decide to “bench” Alonso, I hope he gives Emerson a chance.

16 Dec 2018 22:15:55
I have been really impressed by Digne but he only joined Everton in August (£18m) . Whoever organises our scouting system needs shooting - the money that we've wasted!

16 Dec 2018 22:50:10
Hiring a director of football would help a great deal and at least give the club direction again.

16 Dec 2018 22:53:31
Shooting would seem a bit harsh! ’

I’m sure someone will have some strange transfer stat but my guess is we NO worse than other clubs at scouting players.

For one reason or another some players just don’t work out.

Anyway, I’m happy with the three points away from home.

16 Dec 2018 23:01:06
Did you just said that Ivanovic was bad?

16 Dec 2018 23:22:33
In his last season he declined rapidly and was shocking but Mourinho continued to play him. Before the last couple of seasons he was probably the best RB we’ve ever had.

17 Dec 2018 10:42:43
The best right-back we've ever had? Ken Shellito, Paddy Mulligan, Albert Ferrer, Steve Clarke, Dan Petrescu, Paulo Ferriera, might disagree.

17 Dec 2018 14:00:20
Ken Shellito for me Miss Wood but Iva would be second followed by Dan.

17 Dec 2018 14:50:05
Ken Shellito head and shoulders above all the others. What a tragedy it was when his career was cut short. Him and Eddie McReadie, masters of the well timed, sliding tackle.

17 Dec 2018 16:15:04
C1955, in my opinion, he would have been a 1966 World Cup winner If he hadn’t suffered his injury!
