It's nothing to do with being biased, if you think drawing away to the team third bottom of the league ten points behind our poor start is a "more than decent result" then you really do have pathetic ambitions.

Nothing to do with ambitions. I have ambitions to be better them ambitions don't magic up a premier league quality striker, a genuine playmaker or an offensive fit premier league quality winger though. Last I looked we were over 2to1 to win this game. 1 in 3 chance and people are demanding a win like it's unthinkable we won't.

What can be easier than a team who hasn't won for 17 games and who are by all accounts, useless?
...................WBA are clearly not useless ,they got a point at Anfield without being gifted a penalty and they had several chances to score against us. Bournemouth play a more open style of football and should be easier to break down. Hence my opinion this will be a slightly easier game .
We are special ,we are Everton.

No one's demanding a win or saying it's unthinkable that we won't.

Drawing at Bournemouth isn't a "more than decent result" though.

Considering we haven't beaten a single team above 10th this season, this is a definite must win.

I can almost justify the poor WBA result as Boxing Day blues, those games are always hard after Xmas Day, but we should be able to dispatch Bournemouth reasonably simply. They're quite an open team. Even long ball should get some kind of result.

However, I expect we'll have less possession and struggle to score.

As @gash said, the ship has been steadied, now it's time to ask more of the players.

We're probably 2/1 because the bookies noticed we didn't have a shot at goal until injury time, against a team in 19th, who haven't won any Prem game since mid August.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.

It is for where we are. Obviously not for where we want to be but where we are makes Bournemouth favourites.

Were over 2to1 for that game too.

No honestly, it isn't. Regardless of what the bookies say.

Seems they know Allardyce rather well

Go get rich then. If they are wrong go make some money. I'd imagine Bournemouths home record is a hell of a lot better than our away record though.

A couple of actual attempts on goal would be nice, the west brom performance was unacceptable, proper shithouse tactics against a struggling team is just ridiculous

We've won 2 away games in a year. Half of which was under allardyce. Yeah our problem is definitely him

Eight games ago a draw would have been a good result. Now it won't be and to demonstrate progress we need to show some decent passages of play alongside a win ideally

Mate we've got Utd, the RS etc coming up, and you're going to be arguing that we'll do brilliantly to get anything at all out of those games and you will be right and people will agree with you.

But don't try to sell us that shite against 18th and 19th in the league. It doesn't wash.
