Royal Blue: The Everton FC Podcast
Royal Blue: Isco to help lighten load on James? And has Carlo got goalkeeping call correct?
Friday, 6 November
James Rodriguez, Seamus Coleman, Lucas Digne and Mason Holgate... Everton will be boosted by the return of four key players for tomorrow's visit of Manchester United to Goodison Park. But with Carlo Ancelotti admitting at his pre-match press conference that Rodriguez is not fully fit, the Royal Blue podcast wonder whether that underlines just how important the Colombian has already become to Everton? And if he has, do the Blues need more players of Rodriguez's calibre? That leads host Phil Kirkbride and regular guests Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland to discussing the merits of a move for another Real Madrid midfielder, Isco. Talk then turns to United and their under-pressure manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before the podcast ends with a discussion about Ancelotti's decision to recall Jordan Pickford, plus the usual predicitions. Enjoy.
