Fair to say some of them aren’t a result of him being out of position and his recovery pace is a great asset to have?

Saw a pic of Pienaar on the socials with that t-shirt shot, but altered to say ‘Godfrey Is Great’. Gave me a giggle. Wanted to share but you can’t put pics on here unless they’re under 9k

His recovery pace is great to have definitely, feel a lot more comfortable squeezing up.

But the recovery tackle thing, in particular the very eye catching ones, I'd honestly say if you did a review you are going to see him out of position, not checking his shoulder on all of them.

The only one I'm not sure of is the one the week earlier because he looked like he made up a lot of ground and it's not like there was anyone else ok the defensive line.

Against Spurs he was full Zoolander calmly looking out wide at who had the ball that he had to chase down.

And then in true rope-a-dope style, gave his opposite number a head start, and confidence, only to reign him and slide tackle with an air of consummate ease.

Is it about Ben?

Holgate levels of dislike for me now. Can't believe he's blagged himself a starting spot at fullback whilst we have others fit. The lad is not only never a fullback, but he is one of the worst actual footballers I've ever seen play for Everton.

0 wins and 4 points in 7 matches since he came into the side as a RB. It's not even just the attacking side of things, he's a shit defender as well.

If you include when Dyche started him at LB/RB last season then its 1 win in 14 matches overall.

I don't know how anyone can defend his place in the team.

I actually think his defending is worse than his attacking, if that's possible. Well it's more damaging to us anyway. I could just about accept him if he was strong defensively like Mykolenko. He's atrocious.

Shaking Godfrey, Holgate and Keane is key to my sanity. But they all.. still... here.
