Fabian Delph joined Everton from Manchester City last July for an undisclosed fee but six months into his Goodison Park career he’s failed to win the affections of the club’s faithful. 

A recent article from the Athletic’s Greg O’Keeffe explored what may have led to the Evertonian’s showering the England international with a chorus of boos and in response to it, these fans have taken the opportunity to have their say on the former Aston Villa midfielder.

The journalist shared the article on Twitter, which led to many of them saying what they really thought:

Does Fabian Delph have a future at Goodison Park?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, there were some Evertonian’s willing to back the under-fire midfielder.


What do we think?

Delph certainly hasn’t covered himself in glory by publicly arguing with supporters of the club via social media. When his arrival was announced, he spoke of the passionate fan base this club boasts but with that comes the possibility he will face criticism from time to time – to which he reacted angrily.

The 30-year-old won two Premier League titles during his time with Manchester City but apart from a spell covering at left-back, he was largely a bit-part player during his time at the Etihad. He may have moved on in search of more regular first-team football, but in the eyes of most Everton fans, he should be a squad player rather than a regular starter.

He’s made 12 appearances in the top-flight this season but has only started 41% of the Toffee’s games so far. It remains to be seen what kind of a role he will play under Carlo Ancelotti moving forwards and whether or not he’ll be forced to move on again in the search for regular playing time.
