That's a fair assessment. For France at the Euro's he had a couple of flat performances. The difference being he was substituted and another player used.
Our manager probably doesn't feel comfortable doing that obviously. It's about the dynamic between the coach and the player. The typical crawl-arse likes to keep the influential sorts happy. Whereas those who are less sensitive to the feelings of cry-babies go there own way.
Yesterday Dimi got little creativity behind him, against Palace he had Cresswell. Lanzini and noble played closer too him as well, even Zaza.
Against Chelsea you had the same players but Antonio running ahead and creating space for him to move into with Obiang pinging passes to him.
Yesterday Bolaise did not retreat, why would he when Coleman was back and could have had a nap, therefore Cresswell struggled to bomb forward. Gueye and Barry knew how to stop Lanzini & to fill the space Payet likes to come inside too, noble and Obiang got hassled everytime they had the ball-no time or space.
This meant Payet rarely got the ball with room, or facing evertons goal. Everton got the tactics spot on and just killed anything we had against Palace & Chelsea in terms of threat.
I don't think Everton have been given enough praise in all honesty.
Good appraisal I feel . You should be on the telly
But his work for Hammerschat has completely overtaken the acting persona that was Rab C Nesbitt.
