Royal Blue: Marcel Brands AGM comments, Ben Godfrey's growing reputation & the great gherkin debate...
No game to preview but no bother for the Royal Blue podcast panel as they have plenty to get their teeth stuck into today. Host Phil Kirkbride is joined by Dave Prentice and Gav Buckland as they look back on a top four-boosting win over Wolves, discuss Marcel Brands' comments from the General Meeting and ask if it's time to reconsider what Everton's strongest starting XI is? The versatility - and durability - of Lucas Digne is hailed as the Royal Blue crew wax lyrical about James Rodriguez and a system that was made for him. Brands says he does not expect Everrton to sign any players this month but, instead, focus on offloading some and the lads discuss whether we should take the director of football's words at face value or still hold out hope for arrivals? Ben Godfrey also comes in for praise and it is discussed if he would now have to be considered as part of Everton's strongest XI, when everyone is fit and available. Enjoy.
