Not that. Just someone with a winners mentality on the pitch. Nt
...limited ability wise, but an absolute winner, combined with being a real goal threat and looked to be a twat to play against.
The idea tht a Peter Reid figure would sort them out, is I think missing the point. Its not that they are lazy or dont care, too many of them are not mentally tough enough, You dont need a whole team to have that toughness but you need a few, It appears we have none. Its not just about how hard you run, its about still being switched on enough to do your job after you or the team has made a mistake, its about having the focus, concentration and drive to keep sharp on and on it in all circumstances. Its about being brave enough to still want the ball when your form isnt great. That cant be taught, or driven into players (or of it can its slow process, not achieved with a stern talking to). No amount of shouting will make me into a passable player, I dont have any ability, similarly no amount of shouting will sort Iwobis inability to show his talent on the pitch.
This is again down to awful recruitment a good manager and DOF will scout for strong personalities as much as talent.
should surely involve gathering them all around a big screen and watching all the fan reaction videos which have been posted since yesterday and reading the likes of this forum
By which time the kit man will be back from Sports Direct with 40 pairs of black football boots, passing the bloke on his way out who makes the fluffy "Everton Training" videos who has been told to do one until next season
Also rumoured that the kids from Alder Hey are visiting the Everton players in hospital this year!
