Seeing as we haven't got any football at the minute, I've decided to play Football Manager.

I saw an interview with Carlo a few months ago where he said, paraphrasing, we have two good headers of a ball up front, so it would make sense to cross the ball more!

Well, if that's the case, definitely sign the name of this article!

I'm an Everton Evertonian of 30 years experience/suffering but I'm actually from Burnley (my Dad is a Scouser) so I go on a few games at Turf Moor every season and Dwight McNeil looks like an excellent player (in the making).

He's got decent pace, he's positive, he plays for Burnley so obviously he's used to "putting a shift in" but he's also got one of the sweetest left feet I've seen recently. Think Hinchcliffe, for those of you around in the 90s.

If we are to persist with 2 up top and we're looking for good supply and considering we can't attract the very best players, then we should definitely go after this lad.

He's only about 20 years old and he would view Everton and Ancelotti as a real step up in his career. Meaning, he'd actually care about being here rather than just the money.

He's only going to get better and it won't be long before the Champions League clubs chase him, if he continues at this rate.

He needs to add goals to his game but he does play for a team that has very little possession/ambition so hopefully that'll come with time and better players around him.

If I had my way, I'd break the bank to sign both McNeil and Grealish!! But we've probably missed the boat on the latter.

I'm not familiar with the former, but really hope you're correct with regards to the latter.

Lee, check out the Grand Old Team forum I started ages ago. I'm with you but was told nothing good comes from a team like Burnley.

I'll have a look, Anton. Burnley are a bit drab but they still have a couple of decent players.

McNeil is definitely one.
