The buzzword for the whole interview was the Everton ‘identity. No player will be signed who cant deliver it. Also I get the impression that there will be much better focussed recruitment. The days of buying six no10s in a window and the multi year right back fiasco will become a distant memory.
Good background too in youth and academy football, and very good that he says he will promote that and find pathways for the very best of the youngsters to prove themselves.

He emphasizes the importance of bringing Academy players into the first team. He wants to know how much of what we need is already in the club, before he goes to the market for signings. I like that.
He says he wants to build on Frank's player expertise in building the club, not impose his own vision, and that the process will be collaborative rather than top-down. I really like that, especially in light of our previous signing process, where there were Moshiri signings and Rafa signings and who-the-fuck-signed-THAT-guy signings.
He talks about respecting what the fan base wants the team to look like. I like that.
He says he feels lucky to be at Everton. He doesn't come off one bit as someone who feels Everton are lucky to have him. I like that.
And I still say he looks sorta like Frank.
