Courtois and Real Madrid having an absolute mare here.
I'd argue that Courtois might have been their best player in the first half.

They look slow and their defence in front of him has been diabolical

At least I'm not Bobby Madley

Was thinking more of how Courtois has a lot to prove still and shipping in 5 goals in a half against your crosstown rivals ain't going to help much.

That said the team has been awful in front of him as you've said.

Everton playing in the “Opel Cup” with Sevilla & Mainz in hour long games. Lost 1-0 via a penalty in the second half, means we’ve scored 2 goals in 7+ hours of pre season. A lucky deflected free kick & a header from a mis**t/deflected shot, things going beautifully as it’s all about fitness

4-3 over Reading. My boy Mason Mount with a brace and he looks like he beating Barkley in the battle for the number 10 spot.

Nice to see Frank throwing the players and formations around to see what works.

We've had a trash pre-season results wide. One more game then the Community Shield.

Mane still not back from holidays. Don't think he will play against City.
