There is a saying, ‘I never lose - either I win or I learn’...That is the philosophy in this current situation,” says Everton Women’s manager Jean-Luc Vasseur. [EFC]

“My chances to go forward depend more on the situation in the game than previously. The manager asked me to be more of a defender this season, to stay back a bit more and keep a better balance for the team.

If the manager asked me to defend 99 percent of the time, I would defend 99 percent of the time. If what you are being asked to do is for the good of the team, that is it, the end of the discussion. You do the job the manager wants,” says Lucas Digne. [EFC]

Too many life long friends to mention. You know who you are. I have been inspired by all of you time after time. My spirit will never be the same. What an incredible privilege to have been a custodian of this great club for so long. Separated by distance but never heart.— Dan Donachie (@donachie_dan) November 11, 2021
