Reflections on the night

1. Alcaraz is 'kin scary (for the wrong reasons).
2. Everton have never won a European trophy.
3. Lukaku is 'kin scary (for the right reasons). I've said for years that if Heskey has punched his weight he would have been a great player. I saw him do it once in the World Cup last 16 game against Denmark (was it 2002). I've seen Lukaku do it twice. His header in his first game for us against West Ham and tonight from about 30 mins until the end of the game.
4. That first 30 minutes was incredibly bad. Incredibly!
5. The reason that Everton have been so poor this season is due to the Everton crowd (apparently).

really pleased with the second half performance. Alcaraz was fouled for their goal, but it was a beauty. Can only assume the pitch caused the full backs to be so coy in the first half, and the change of studs I recommended worked at half time Very Happy

Howard better tonight, Jags seems back in the general direction of his best.

was going to pick a side for Newkie but I'll let all you betting men do that Smile

Sorry but that never happened. Also, Howard Kendall never managed Everton in Europe.

If you disagree take it up with Clive Tyldesley.

Played with great intensity, pushed higher up the pitch so less fannying around on our own 18 yard line. Luka genuinely unplayable at times, Garbutt excellent - I wouldn't put Baines back in too quickly - Ossie came on a did some nice stuff as usual.

Excellent.

Sack Martinez though.
So why do we, so often, find it impossible to have the same intensity from the git go? Having a crack at them when the game started would be the way to go, no?
The opening 20 minutes was so predictable, as many of us did in the pub. "We'll tikitaki and fanny about for 20 minutes and then someone will cock it up and we'll be chasing the game." How many times do we have to do that before we figure out that it don't work. We send ourselves to sleep.
The game was screaming for Ossie at half time. Get Barry off and Ossie getting some neat triangles going. When did you last see 3 EFC players weaving it about? It's just ponderous.
Then someone put a fly up a few arses, and bingo we look tricky and powerful.
Maybe we can catch them on the break next week.
I hear McGready may be back.

Barry is suspended for Toon and QPR. Will be interesting to see if Bobby plays safe and replaces him with Besic, is a bit more adventurous and picks Gibbo, or is much more adventurous and plays Ossie.

Would like to see Gibson start against the Geordie's,, Gibson for me has more energy and creativity, with both Lennon & Atsu both available Martinez could also rest both Barkley & Mirralas.


Was interesting what Lukaku said after the game ? the forwards, Lukaku-Naismith-Barkley and Mirralas were too scared to hit the ball in opposition penalty area, putting Immense pressure on Our Defenders and defensive-midfielders for the first 20 minutes which resulted in conceding a goal, Our fans were becoming restless having to watch Tiki-Tacki football and back passing when we should be going forward, some fans resulted in booing, although this isn't the best response for players confidence it did change the game, though when Naismith equalised just before half time.
Second half as Hairy said, we played some of are best football of the season,a more attacking and physical game that brought the fans to life.

I think having Ossie on the pitch as much as possible until we are safe is vital. He can create space either for himself or others in the final third like no other in our squad. He can turn on a sixpence and change the point of attack in tight spaces. He have really missed him, even to have an option off the bench for last 20 minutes.

Agreed, some how having Ossie on for the last 20/30 minutes, gives us hope and he always gives 100%,We have missed his quick thinking in the final third, Also, We need to get are mid-fielders involved more in attack, not many goals from that area if you take out Naismith , both Barkley & Mirralas not contributing as much as they should.

Just looked at the pen.
Jeez Big Luke was fortunate.
btw, Ossie should be first on the team sheet on Sunday.
Macca in the holding role. 4 of the rest and Big Luke. When we're 3-0 in the lead, sub the big fella.

Agree to an extent, but ossie works well as a substitute, he's got quick feet and does well when defenders are tired.

you know... I said a while back that I think it is no coincidence that we went to ratshit when Ossie was injured... I think we really have missed him a lot more than we give him credit for.

..and also Pieman.. even though he's nearly 60 years old the link up with Baines was a key pairing

Yes, I think a lot of our problems this season have come from not replacing Ossie and Pienaar with similar players. Sure, people often had a go at Leon but you only realise how good he is when he comes back into the squad after a break. And Pieman is way past his sell-by date but, at his peak, he was better than any of the shite we have in midfield now. Baines is half the player without Pienaar. But I did notice Garbutt was linking up well with Lukaku at times when he big man drifted out left. I honestly think that's the future. We have to get Garbutt signed up because, if we don't, someone like the SHite or ManUre will come in and get him for nuppence.
