In all fairness to Richarlison, I don't think it's so much that he doesn't want to play for us, but instead it's the really poor tactics and team selections last season that didn't do a lot for not only his stability in the team, but others' too. I think we would really miss him if he were to move on.

We could miss him but would need to replace him with better productivity and of course his work rate, which can't be faulted.
I bet all the players felt let down by Carlo. Not as much as the fans but a player should look up to a manager. Lots to do before the start of the season for Brands and the next boss. I'm guessing none of those on international duties will be involved in the pre-season tour, which makes it even harder to make as fast a start as last season. Great being a Blue.

Contrary to various statements, he appears unhappy at Everton. So what is the truth? If he is happy, then get him to change his body language; but, if he isn't happy, then sell him to the highest bidder and let's move on.

We need to add goal threat to this squad, not reduce it. Selling Richarlison this summer while his stock is unusually low and prices may be depressed by COVID-19 would be a bad move, in my view â€“ unless we managed to pick up about 3 new quality attackers to compensate. That seems an unlikely scenario to me.

Colin at 3 - absolutely not. Anybody playing in front of our midfield would look grumpy. For me it's essential we keep both Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin.
IMHO, the key thing this summer is to sort the midfield out. Do that and it might not matter who the manager is.

It appears (And not for the first time) that his lack of smiling is grounds for dumping him. And, somehow, he runs around the pitch for Brazil with a big smile on his face. Haha.
Can't believe I'm responding to this open stupidity regarding the look on his face. So, please, once and for all. The look on his face doesn't matter.
He has the EXACT same face playing for us as when playing for Brazil. All serious when running around the pitch. Happy, laughing, and smiling when he or a teammate scores.

You can't expect him to feel the same playing for a not-so-winning team... ie, us.

But this "He never looks happy, get rid", has actually got some traction the last couple years. Amongst the stupid.
Did you watch the game? That Neymar. If only.

A truly majestic side that sadly never won the World Cup but they entertained the whole world nevertheless.
Btw... Ecuador are the best side I've seen so far.
