Jigsaw Bobby

Recently I had a few comments on Twitter about this so I’ve decided to elaborate as to my reasoning thereupon .

About a year ago, in one of our discussions, I elucidated to Keith Mullin my “Jigsaw Bobby” concept, that is Our Manager requires various and different pieces – or options in order for him to operate at optimum level and allow him to transform us into the true picture he has for us in his head, into Roberto’s Everton, into The School Of GD Science in his very image. For every Barkley there has to be a Naisy, for James Mc see Besic etc, Such an undertaking is a significant one in any Footballing era but in the contemporary financial cesspit it is pushing the proverbial boulder up a hill. It is extremely tough to accomplish yet should we provide him with the tools, even minimal outlay tools he is, in my opinion able, he has the quality to manipulate these Players into a genuine force in the EPL while executing it in a style to make even the most dubious Bobby observer lick his or her lips in anticipation.

Everton : The Frustration Continues

Follow @footyscene1

Nothing is straightforward with Everton is it? We had a great season last time out, done some decent business in the summer tying down Gareth Barry, Ross Barkley, Seamus Coleman, John Stones and bring in Romelu Lukaku, Muhamed Besic, Samuel Eto’o and Christian Atsu on loan and the optimism soared. Then we start the season and boom someone lets down the balloon to leave us all feeling a bit deflated.

I wrote a piece in these pages at the start of this season suggesting that despite all the new-found converts and optimism , this campaign may well turn out to be one of experience , of learning of perhaps , having to go sideways to go forwards and in honesty nothing I have witnessed to this point has made me alter that view. I am however bewildered by the online hate fest that ensues should we not win for 3-4 games , moreover that in the wake of the Naismith – let’s be all K*pite and utterly delete that many actively hated this Lad for no more than being played out of position by our previous Manager but he is now is everyone’s hero , we have seemed to have learned nothing as regards Romelu Lukaku .
