I see Ashley Williams is having a blinder at Stoke!!

Mirallas is doing very well this season in Serie A.

Mirallas? Four appearances – one start, three subs, with no goals or assists – is "doing very well"?
David Barks

LOL Mike. I just can’t figure Victor out at this point.

Anyone know how Tarashaj is doing given he is a Swiss international who hasn't played a competitive game for Everton and doesn't need a work permit?

Not well at all, Alan. He made three early-season sub appearances for Grasshoppers, and then injured his foot in August and hasn't played since.

Cheers, Mike, he does sound a very Everton signing then.
Sorry, couldn't resist a smile.

Ashley Williams is getting absolute pelters from Stoke fans on Twitter!

Pelters? Is that good or bad? Translation please.

I wonder if Ashley Williams was every any good?

I mean he spent a long time outside the top flight where he wouldn't have been exposed as much. Then he is in the Premier League with a team who concede 60-odd goals a season, that are perennial relegation favorites, so expectations aren't exactly high.

Maybe he just got found out at Everton because expectations are higher.

Mike, they think he is the warmest, stalest, smellyest shite.

Maybe I'll stop being subtle.

Ah, got it, Paul. And I have a new word for my vocabulary. Always educational to be here.

Mike (3) – well Fiorentina haven't sent him back prematurely the way Olympiakos did, so I guess that counts as progress.

Mike @12.

If you're giving someone "pelters" you're giving them a good "slagging," giving them "down the banks," "ripping the piss" out of them, basically making fun of them in an enthusiastic and energetiic way, lol!

Thanks Brian... writing... writing...

Galatasaray-Porto CL highlights. Our boy Henry featured twice in the first 1:30 minutes or so. Looked good doing so.

By the highlights, Galatasaray missed several opportunities to win the game.

Mo Besic just gave a MotM performance as Borough beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1. He scored and assisted another. Passed great all night and broke up play great. Question: is that really his level?

Nikola Vlasic was asked who he thinks will win the Champions League this season - and his response suggests he's not thinking about returning to Everton.

"In the Premier League, only the top five or six teams, managed by foreigners like Klopp or Guardiola, play great football," Vlasic continued. “The others think only about defending, focusing on the physical aspect. That’s not how I want to play.”

Is that the best way to endear yourself to the Everton faithful? Wonder why Silva doesn't rate him good enough to be in his squad...

Vlasic could be a really good player, but he’s not fast enough for the wing, and lacks the all round game for the middle, or the real eye for the pass to be a No 10.

I don’t think we’d regret selling him. He doesn’t seem to have enjoyed his time here and he’s not fought hard enough for his place. These comments and those of his sister say a lot.

Just forget about Vlasic and his ridiculous entourage. An absolute gobshite and no mistake; sell him and move on. He'll be at Newcastle or Middlesbrough soon enough.

Vlasic to me just seems like a spoilt kid. You get these pushy parents in the US who live vicariously through their kids and somehow convince little Tyler that he is the best thing since sliced bread. His parents sound the same way.

The fact his Dad publicly supported Nikola's view that, with no goals and no assists, he was the "best midfielder" at the club pretty much says it all really. Anyway, I guess in his absence we will make do with those rough house "dogs of war" Bernard and Gomes.

Vlasic is acting like a real dope – lashing out because his pride was wounded, instead of just keeping his mouth shut and showing what he can do on loan. I think he has potential, but he'd be lucky to get in our matchday squad at the moment – so let him continue to be a legend in his own mind, just because he's bagged a few goals in the rinky-dink Russian league.

Vlasic and his family have let themselves down, and his comments about the redshite says it all. Silva was right to send him on loan, because he was totally inconsistent, he's playing well in the Russian league, so was Niasse!
