With Everton suffering a pre-season defeat to FC Porto in Sunday evening’s action, it appears young midfielder Tom Davies is bearing the brunt of fans frustrations.

The 20-year-old got a taste of top-flight football coming into the Everton first-team setup in the 2015/16 campaign where he made two appearances in the Premier League in games against Southampton and Norwich City. 2016/17 became his breakthrough season though as he made 25 appearances across all competitions, returning two goals and he continued that in 2017/18 with a further 43 appearances and another two goals.

Despite his game time, he has only made 46 starting appearances in total though and with a packed midfield he has struggled to make that starting berth his own and some fans feel that it’s time for him to head out on loan for his development, believing his Porto showing proves he’s stalled at the club.

It’s only natural given his age really, but a solid loan spell out could be what he needs to take that next step and develop more consistency to his game.

  • Guess we have to find a new word for these so-called “supporters”, cause supporting they are not.. all they do is whine….

  • Everton must start well or Fans will be unsettled and lead to players feeling pressure but it’s up to the board to sign decent players to improve what we have.

  • I believe we will due the day if we get rid of Davies. Looking back to the freedom he had to tear Manchester City apart the club has to look at how it has been using him.
    I think he will come back one day to haunt us,
    It strikes me we give youngsters a few games and expect International level performance from them. Having to constantly introduce youngsters to fill glaring gaps of ability and responsibility is a club management style issue. Crucifying youngsters solves nothing
