Why would Rooney take our penalties instead of Baines?

Good win though Smile

Probably the good 'ol "strikers need goals even if they are from penalties", but I agree, Baines should take them.

Because Mirallas isn't here to steal the ball off both of them?

It just highlights the problem of just buying a shedload of players and thinking they'll gel immediately.
Keane would not have had anything like the challenging start, if he'd have had that same back 4 to play with.
The Moyes era of 3-4 players per year, is a better way?
Jags is still our best CB unless he's got Crouch running to the far post. Who do we play next btw?
Tosun looked better but clearly hasn't got whippet's pace.
Lil' Tom just looks short of confidence, and maybe Gana is a better Makelele. Get the ball, pass it to Rooney. That would be Gana's role.
At last a game when the boo boys appeared to have stayed at home.
Good ol' support from the terraces, and a 90 year old stand. Is there an older set of stands in Britain?

Yeah, pretty much nails it for me.  Having three excellent defenders around him (even if two of them are in their 30s) was good for Keane.  Perhaps if we hadn't had injuries to significant players this season, we could have better integrated our new signings  Or perhaps they were just shit.  Tosun was energetic which endeared him to the crowd, and did some nice lay-offs etc, but I'd still rather see a player being cheered for his contribution with the ball than for running 40 yards to close down the goalie for no discernible advantage. 

It has to be said, given the choice of Gana or Schneiderlin or both, we look better with neither.  Mind you Brighton were very poor, one eye on next week's FA Cup tie perhaps.

Anyway I've now managed to see Everton win twice in one season, which I don't think I've done since the 80s.

I think DCL might be up for a two match ban after that dive.

Once the FA have finished looking at the Lallana incident in the FA Cup tie of course Rolling Eyes
