"The increasing maturity of Onana," Really? Say what? Who says? Since when? And half a dozen other sayings
suggesting surprise and disbelief.

I would be surprised if the majority of Everton fans wouldn't refuse £60 million for him. I would struggle to work out what exactly he's doing on the pitch.

Question: What's his skill set?

Dyche has done a decent job given the constraints faced. In my opinion, as I keep saying, he's been great at protecting the players from the circus going on around that. At the moment, he is the voice of the club as there is nothing coming from our apparent board or owner.

Our defence is sound. Sometimes I wish he would change it sooner, but then I look and wonder who we have to change it. It isn't just the players, sometimes we need to change the tactics.

I don't remember how I became an Evertonian. I just always was. As a 5-year-old, I did ask my Dad why I supported Everton? I've said this before, the response was brief. "Because you do."

Those of us of a certain generation have gone through a range of emotions. Nearly winning in the '70s to the Gordon Lee years. The dark winter of 1983 to go on and win the FA Cup, two titles and a European trophy.

Into the 90s and two last-day relegation scrapes.

The okay but mediocre days of Moyes.

The surprising first season of Martinez.

To where we are now and the emotion of the past few seasons.

Why do those supporters do it? Because we do.

My Paulian conversion was the 1966 FA Cup Final and since then the rollercoaster you have described above.

I would contest your labelling of the mediocre days of Moyes with the throwback that with no money (as is now) our aspirations were for an improvement of finishing 5th to 7th each season and breaking into the Top 4 spots instead of now hoping we can stay up.

Many would wish for the suppressed optimism of those years to the current constant fear of relegation. (IMHO)

It's a fair comeback, Neil, and a debate I have with my brother regularly.

Mediocre and plucky Everton for after what I was brought up on and experienced.

Plucky Everton and play down expectations. Be happy with your lot.
