According to a claim from former global sports journalist and pundit Charles Stevenson, who has an excellent track record with Goodison rumours, Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has become ‘frustrated’ with Toffees trio Bernard, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Theo Walcott – prompting some supporters to lash out in full agreement with the manager’s alleged feelings whilst also criticising the club as a whole.
The Italian manager took over from the sacked Marco Silva in late December, apparently so far not being impressed with the three stars – with all of them having a combined total of just three assists this campaign. According to WhoScored.com, Sigurdsson has impressed the most when it comes to passing – having averaged an 81.7% completion rate so far this campaign – while Walcott has accumulated the joint-most shots per game (1.5) along with the Icelandic midfielder.
Bernard, however, reigns supreme in terms of his dribble completion – amassing a better rate (1.3) than both Walcott and Sigurdsson. However, given their lack of goals and assists combined, some supporters have flocked to criticise the trio and insist they must do better – along with other players like Alex Iwobi. Toffees fans also took it upon themselves to make suggestions over better playing positions for a few seemingly out of form individuals whilst also lambasting the club’s past recruitment.

They’re all massively overrated by Everton fans especially Bernard. Nice turns and touches. No end product or assists.

Bernard looks a natural number 10 he’s wasted on the wing when we need creativity

Play Iwobi in the right position and he will get some. As he did in the league cup where he registered a goal and an assist

Our recruitment in the last couple of summer windows has been with the intention of salvaging the mess Walsh & co. left us in.
Bolasie, Martina, Sandro to name those who will never get a game here again yet are still on our books on ridiculous wages.
That’s why we can’t rid.

I can’t remember anybody missing open goals regularly.
We don’t create enough chances.
