'You are tested by the Lord... now I feel good about myself'

"After a tricky start to life at Everton, now Yerry Mina is hitting all the right notes," writes Dominic King.

"The gravity of the situation is not lost on the 25-year-old. He takes the responsibility of changing Everton's fortunes seriously and speaks with fondness for El Professor — Marco Silva — the manager who brought him to Merseyside in August 2018 but whose future remains in peril."

Maybe El Professor means class clown in Spanish innit. Silva needs to come out of his shell and believe in himself.

Mina is growing into a fine player for the blues if he can stay fit. Holgate, Sidibe, Walcott, lwobi are stand outs for me so far as potential for the season with much more to come from Richarlison and Digne. The rest have been a bit disappointing. We have so much potential in this squad. Come on, Blues!

I've been critical of this guy but I defy any Evertonian to read that and not warm to him.

I think it's fair to say we haven't seen the best of him yet. He needs more matches in order to do that.

I'm a big Holgate fan. I think he has shown he has a footballing ability the other two centre-halves don't possess, but if we are going to beat Spurs today. I feel we will need the big fella to renew and win his battle with Kane.

I don't want anybody taking foolish risks with his health, but our odds will shorten (for me at least) if his name is on the team sheet today. I worry Kane will murder us if it isn't.

Good article there Lyndon that you have discovered in the Mail. I like the guy but just wish he was less injury prone, as he is undoubtedly an asset when he plays.

Mind you as David @ 1 mentioned El professor (?), has possibly set his fitness back by risking him against Watford, not a smart move in my book. I would like to see a fully fit Mina play alongside Holgate, for two reasons. I think they would form a good partnership (possibly, but until tried, just speculation) and also to give a reminder to Keane that he is not guaranteed a place, and hopefully make him concentrate a bit more.

Some people complain that we don't have strong characters in the side. I disagree totally, and think that Mina is one such character.

He strikes me as a straightforward honest bloke, and a tremendous player. If he says Silva is good, that's good enough for me.
