  1. I love Emi, and he is clearly a better player today than he was two seasons ago, but we saw how he played at the Premier League level in 2019-2020. One goal and seven assists in 36 appearances. All this talk of "ambition" is just talk.

  3. I, too, believe in Dowell. I like him a lot. Coming through the Everton system he was regularly a better player than someone like Calvert Lewin. My opinion is most of Dowell's issue is physicality. He doesn't have top speed (in comparison to DCL) so he has to be more technical and fluid. Tough to do in the Championship and especially in the Premier League when you are on the skinnier side. I think he has the talent - just needs to grow into his body.
  4. Agree with your sentiment. Not so much about Dowell or Cantwell doing the job of Emi - that I am skeptical of. But I think the club is looking for a different type of player to survive in the PL. More physicality and top level experience.
  5. The question, to me, is whether or not it is better or more "fun" for the fans to linger around 15-17th in the Premier League every season or to occasionally drop down and win the lower league. For the club's financials, I imagine lingering at 17th is by far the better scenario. Keeps the PL TV money coming regularly. I suppose my answer would be dependent on whether or not the club is competitive in the cup competitions.
