Journalist Tony Scott has claimed that four Everton players aren’t good enough to sit on the bench for the club, let alone start matches.
Speaking in the aftermath of the Toffees’ Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Queens Park Rangers, Scott claimed that Tom Davies, Jonjoe Kenny, Andre Gomes, and Mason Holgate ‘simply aren’t good enough’ for the club.
The four players all lined up for Everton as they travelled to London, only to get defeated in a penalty shootout after the game had finished all square at 2-2.
Was signing James Rodriguez a complete waste of money for Everton?
Three of the four players were also involved in the club’s recent 3-0 away thumping at Aston Villa. It seems their involvement in these poor showings has left Scott exasperated.
While talking on the All Together Now Everton Podcast, he said: “In these last five days, it’s shown that Tom Davies, Jonjoe Kenny, Andre Gomes, and Mason Holgate you could throw into the mix – there’s just players there that just simply aren’t good enough, not to even be on Everton’s bench.
“They’re on Champions League wages, some of these players you’ve just talked about there, and there they are struggling against Queens Park Rangers in the League Cup. It’s absolutely obscene, the dross that we’ve got at the moment.”
TIF Thoughts on Everton and their players…
Gomes seems to be a little more highly thought of, having played three times in the league – but even so, all those appearances have come as a substitute.
Following this cup disappointment, it’s hard to imagine that any of these players have done enough to convince Benitez, or Scott, that they are good enough to break into the starting lineup any time soon.
