International debut shows Everton stole a march on rivals for Shani Tarashaj

, 31 March, 10comments  |  Jump to most recent
Roberto Martinez was pleased to see Shani Tarashaj make his full Swiss debut over the international break and is looking forward to having him on board at Finch Farm this summer.

“It was a big moment because I don't think many people would expect that call-up to be that early,” Martinez said.

“It shows you that Shani is developing quickly and that he is highly regarded back in his home country."

Shani looks an exciting player. The Swiss have produced some very good players in recent years. I have a feeling we have found the next one.

Obviously like every blue, I am delighted at this news and can't wait to see him in a blue shirt.

Martinez can certainly find them; it is what he does with them that worries me.

Once a bit of praise comes their way, Everton becomes too small for them. The press dismiss us as a club and see us as feeders for the so-called big clubs of Europe.

It is partially our own fault for lacking ambition over the years and selling for profit rather than improving the squad. We have used lower league clubs in the same way and now it is our turn.

This is nothing to do with whoever is manager at the time. It happened during Catterick's and Kendall's time. We lacked fore sight and never developed conveyor-belt success as we should have.

Brentford and Fleetwood will have to be advised that another player may need their finishing school skills depending on where Lukaku is at the time.

Has he been asked about his Champions League ambitions?

Alan #8, so right, mate... and, since Duncan has been with the youngsters, we haven't found or developed any young strikers.

Plenty of good talent in midfield and defence coming through though.

Trevor 7, It will be interesting to see what the press class Leicester as if they win the Premier League. Will they still be seen as a little club, or will it be that the so-called big clubs no longer can buy guaranteed success?

The guy is 21 and cost £3m. I won't buy any talk of wonderkids, but hope he is something that we're missing.

Another hugely talented lad with a bright future ahead of him; however, I'm not convinced that Roberto is the man capable of developing our squad into the team we know they could be.

I'm also convinced our coaching staff aren't cutting the mustard either. Changes must be made in the summer. Sorry, Roberto, it's adios!

One problem, though... he was shite in the match and Duffy had him in his back pocket.

I was wondering what this thread was about as I saw his debut and he hardly featured.

So he made his international debut at 21 so we've therefore beaten the big clubs to him?

Another one to add to the list.
