Everton

Everton's unbeaten run came to an end last week against Manchester City despite taking the lead through Romelu Lukaku's 4th goal in his 3rd league appearance. This leaves Everton in 7th place in the league with 12 points from a possible 21. The injury concerns seem to be going away and should Pienaar return for this match as expected then Everton will be able to field their perceived strongest XI. The only remaining injury is Antolin Alcaraz who has been returning "in a few weeks" for the last two months now.

(http://i.imgur.com/9hXcNLE.png)

Cardiff, Hull and Crystal Palace had no Premier League position last year and are therefore ranked 18th, 19th and 20th


Statistically it can be argued that Everton the 8th most difficult start in the league so far according to the above table thus Roberto Martinez is doing a good job for Everton so far. Our opponents have had a very fair set of fixtures and have started very well in their return to the top flight.




Hull City

Hull City have made the best start of any of the promoted sides with Steve Bruce's men just a point behind Everton in the table in 8th place. So far they've lost only 2 games which came away to Manchester City and Chelsea. Hull have scored 6 goals so far in their 7 games and have conceded 7 goals. Should you include the league Cup then they are currently on a 5 match unbeaten run.

Robbie Brady is set to miss out on this match throughout injury meaning we could expect this team on Saturday:

--------------------------McGregor----------------------
----Rosenior--Davies------------Faye---Figueroa---
----------------Huddlestone--Livermore--------------
--------Elmohamady-----Aluko-------Quinn----------
----------------------------Graham-----------------------

On loan striker, Danny Graham is yet to score for the Tigers and hasn't scored for over 9 months.




This will be just the 18th meeting between the clubs since Hull were founded in 1904.

Post by: Toddacelli on October 16, 2013, 12:36:09 AM
This is where I think the new manager needs to make a difference. In the games on paper that we should win well - but we have a tendency to fuck up and then overperform against the top teams.

If we can maintain what we do against the top teams but start putting a few of the so-called 'lesser' teams to bed - this will be the next stage in our development. I expect Lukaku's goals to help a lot with this but worry about the season after.

Without Lukaku this game would have played out similarly to our first three - us struggling to break down 11 men behind the ball. Perhaps we would get the goals, perhaps not.

His signing poses a dilemma for these weaker sides: do they defend deep as they are inclined in order to try and stifle us, thereby allowing him closer to the goal and to use his ability in the air; or do they push higher up to get the Rom further away from the goal and risk us getting in behind with our pace up front?

I think Lukaku will prove the difference in a lot of the games we have drawn in the past when we should have been winning.
Title: Re: Everton v Hull City
Post by: wilbur on October 16, 2013, 05:39:33 PM
I think that's a pretty good assessment of his worth. He's the first striker we've had since The Yak (in his heyday) who can receive the ball with his back to goal and not be odds-on to give it away or have it taken from him.

It must be a godsend for some of our players used to Jelavic and Anichebe to have the option of a straightforward pass to Lukaku knowing that it's not going to come straight back at you..... and he scores goals as well.

Now if we can just get him to last 90 minutes......

Steve Bruce is a decent manager, I'm always surprised at how much stick he gets because the clubs he manages are usually filled with the shitest of the shit in terms of playing personnel but they are always a decent bet to stay up.

Robbie Brady looks to be there most dangerous player.

Still expect us to win this though, with the quality we have in the squad it shouldn't be much of a problem.

This one's for you Si...courtesy of mob:

Hello.

Hello.

Testing.

Testicles.

One-two.

One-two.

Is this thing still working?

Hey, how you doing? Long time no smell. Great to have you back. Have you lost some weight? Been hitting the gym? You look great? Kids doing well at school? That’s smashing. And the wife, Rose? Tina? Ah yeah, how’s she doing anyway? Oh, sorry to hear that, that’s rough.  With your best mate? Wow, sheesh, double-whammy! Sorry, of course.

Anyway, the return of the Premier League. Can’t come around fast enough, can it?

Well, maybe it can if you are one of Everton’s injured players, with Steven Pienaar still unlikely to recover for the visit of the Hull City Tigers, Anton Alcaraz being a fictional person created purely for the sake of some elaborate West African benefits scam, and now Darron Gibson sustaining a cruciate ligament injury while on international duty.

It’s a rough old do for Gibson, the poor lad’s car already bears a sticker that says ‘MY OTHER SHOE IS A PROTECTIVE CAST’ such is his propensity for knacking various bits of his husky frame. Doing your cruciate is generally viewed as  the number one, top of the heap, stone cold pimpin’ injury that you wish to avoid in football, but thankfully Gibson works under Roberto Martinez who, when asked about the player missing the rest of the season, somehow managed to give a quote that made it sound like a resoundingly positive development. Much like Brasseye’s good and bad AIDS, Gibson’s isn’t the worst sort of mangled cruciate, and most importantly he is sure to come back an even stronger footballer, apparently.

It’s quite a reflection on how radically the squad was overhauled at Everton this summer that the loss of Gibson, sat on his arse, improving as a player, doesn’t initially seem the huge loss that it would have been last season. And bear in mind that’s on top of Marouane Fellaini leaving as well. Obviously we could find ourselves stretched though if anything happens to either James McCarthy or the first man to pull Lee Carsley’s sword from its stone, Gareth Barry, and so no one would be that surprised if Martinez looked at another midfielder or at least some versatile sort in January.

What’s Lee McCulloch up to at the moment?

Other Everton players had more positive experiences than Gibson during the international fortnight, not least Romelu Lukaku who scored the two goals that sent Belgium through to the World Cup in Brazil. The big striker’s form is just batty at the moment, and let’s face it he is the one who everyone is coming to see on Saturday. The excitement around him just seems to grow with every game and it’s getting to the point where he is proving Jose Mourinho so spectacularly misguided in letting him come on loan that you wouldn’t put it past the malignant little arse-piece letting the Belgian ball bladderer stay beyond the end of this season, just out of sheer bloody-mindedness.

He won’t, like.

Despite the excitement surrounding Lukakau, you get the impression that for some Blues his blistering displays are somehow bittersweet because we don’t ‘own’ him and his time at Goodison is observably finite. We need to forget about the illusion of permanence and continuity in football though – all the talk about ‘projects’ and ‘building’ is started off by managers trying to create an image that ultimately strengthens their own precarious positions.

We say hooey to them. Yes, hooey.

Ignore their insecurities, and instead embrace the fleeting, transient beauty of this present Everton team and simply live in the exhilarating moment. Because beneath his studied, slightly damp exterior our manager Martinez actually cares nothing for the lumbering prog rock institutions of the Premier League; his football is all slashing punk  guitars and this Everton team, like his most famous work ‘Oi! Relegated FA Cup Winners’ is a Situationist pop-up guerilla art installation: audacious, inspiring and willing to challenge conventions and accepted paradigms.

Live it then, and love it, and care not what tomorrow brings, even if it does mean Leighton Baines frigging off to Manchester United in the next transfer window and then Ross Barkley and his oddly triangular Scream-mask head following him six months later.

As for Hull, well, what about them? The opposition are merely the canvas on which Everton paint their abstract masterpieces. Or perhaps they are the easel, because the pitch is probably more like the canvas. Hell no, Steve Bruce and his oddly-not-as-bad-as-everyone-expected side are nothing more than the jam jar in which Martinez washes his brushes, even if they do have a couple of good signings from Tottenham and some fella called Robbie Brady who has got loads of points in the Fantasy League and so everyone has transferred him in when it’s too late.

There were some other bits that this was meant to touch on but ended up on a bit of a tangent there and we inevitably start to run out of steam after about 800 words, hence these pieces always seem to end rather curtly. One of them was Roy Hodgson’s joke at half-time during the England game – we actually had loads of well more offensive ones we were going to use here riffing on ‘retro weekend’ at Goodison – and the sheer amazement that he goes into the changies during crucial qualifiers and starts firing off zingers. Following on from that was going to be something about Brendan Rodgers being one for adopting the latest coaching techniques and having a bare brick wall and a single stool put in the Anfield dressing room for when he dishes out his own brand of chilled out entertainment.

But we can’t really be bothered elaborating on that, and Miles did all much better in his Being: Brendan anyway.

So that’s that then.

Everton, ra ra ra.

Smash the oiks.

It's very rare Goodison gets going for these type of games nowadays. If we twat them we expected it, if we're playing shite everyone one will moan! A few shocking refereeing decisions would liven the place up though. Goodison would've been rocking if that city game was at home with john moss's performance.

Just for a laugh:

"He's a hell of a loan signing on deadline day, someone like Lukaku," said Steve Bruce. "I saw him playing for Belgium in midweek and he's going to be one hell of a player.

"Maybe the reason why he's gone there is Jose has thought 'maybe Everton can go and get a few points off the big boys with him in their team'. That would be pretty shrewd really and I think they can."

He's such a tiger that Brucie.

Time to regroup. Lukaku is off the pace today (presumably tired from Internationals) and it's really not helping. Nothing I've seen of Kone makes me eager to make that substitution though. Too many players not on form though so far. I thought Barkley at least got better as the half went on.

Poor half defensively, Hull deserve a lot of credit for not lying down after the opener. Possibly lucky to still have 11 on the pitch, poorer refs might have sent Barry off for the follow through. A kick up the arse from Roberto at half time should do the trick though we have plenty of options on the bench if needed

Frustrating to see that Hull's best efforts are coming from our own mistakes. Granted, they're pressing us well but some of our decision making leaves a lot to be desired.

I wouldn't take Lukaku off. He's not getting the service into feet that he needs, and if we do that in the second half we'll have that platform to hold the ball in the final third more.

The team certainly needing a talking to from Martinez, that's for sure.

Let's not be too down about it. As Samwise rightly says, we'll looked a bit disjointed and maybe leggy from the international break, and Hull have come and had a real go.

Hull have had the better chances and if you supported them you'd be thinking 'we needed to get ahead while Everton were a bit all over the place', which they haven't. I expect a better second half and still think we'll win.

Hopefully that was just our "bad 45 minutes", glad it is half time so Martinez can address a couple of issues including the defence and some sloppy play, I'm annoyed that Barry has been booked so early, he might not be quite as effective now as he has to be more cautious.

Both Jags and Distin have been poor today, Osman not at the races either.

I doubt Pienaar will come on so soon but I think RM may bring Naismith on so he can give us some energy.

Lukaku no doubt will be absolutely exhausted after 65 minutes so we might end up needing a good performance from Kone.

I understand the risk involved, but Pienaar can create scoring chances.  More likely than any other bench options.  We need three points here, so I am willing to go high risk, high reward.  You can't manage in fear of the downside, if the percentages warrant aggression.

I also accept that the international break will inevitably cause some dropoff in play, just not this much.

McCarthy is this team "straight man" - the calming influence we need to balance RM's style of play.  It's ridiculous how perfect of a fit he is.  Much more so than Felli was.

Happy enough with that, should have been a better performance but we were in just about full control for the second half and deserved the win.

Hull were impressive though, could see them staying up.

McCarthy MOM, lots of energy all game and good on the ball as well. Defensively a bit suspect though and RM needs to sort out this defending corners malarkey or we are going to be in trouble this year.

Will take me a few days to get over James Mcarthys performance there. His signing could well be one of our most important in recent years. He's just a perfect fit for this system.

Also its great having a manager who can see when we need a change and fucking make it. I say this a lot, but if that was Moyes we would of been 2-1 at 70 then he would of made the subs.

Will take me a few days to get over James Mcarthys performance there. His signing could well be one of our most important in recent years. He's just a perfect fit for this system.

We didn't play brilliantly but considering only Bayern Munich had more players on international duty than us then it's a decent win.

Not sure how we faired last season after international breaks but I think we lost to Reading after one.

Post by: Bluedylan on October 19, 2013, 11:31:30 PM
Some people over-stating the 'poor performance', imo. Both CBs were shaky to say the least, Ossie was a passenger mostly, and we were a liability defending set pieces (although they were a much bigger side, so that was inevitable to some extent with good delivery).

But we had plenty of chances, managed the game really well from 70mins onward, 66% of possession, 13 shots to 10 and 6 shots on target to 1.

The Prem is incredibly tight this year, and given all the internationals we've got, that was a competent performance for me, with some dodgy defending from us and wasteful finishing at 2-1 up to kill the game.

thought mccarthy and barry put in gritty performances, mistakes from both at times but impressive the way they are able to put in a hard tacking shift when required and play a pretty passing game when required

our CM play is vastly improved from last season IMO

I thought we were comfortable for the most part, apart from set pieces did they ever cause a threat?

We dominated possession and shots on goal, could of easily been 4 if Kone scored and Barkley fucking passed.

Thought defensively we were crap today. Jags and Distin not at their best. Barkley not great today but he's going to have games like that.

On the plus side thought it was Mirallas's best game this season and Mc Carthy and Barry are boss.

Our defending from corners was ridiculous, perhaps we just didn't have enough time to prepare for this game but we were lucky they didn't score from one considering how many free headers they had.

Well, there was the goal and Graham's early chance that he dithered too much with, but as you say, the main concern should be set-pieces. We're shocking trying to defend corners, we definitely need to work on that in training.

Not sure how we faired last season after international breaks but I think we lost to Reading after one.

This reminded me a lot of last year's Reading game.  But instead of 0 points, we made a great tactical sub, scored a beautiful goal, then managed to grind out the 3 points we had to have.

To me, this is the perfect microcosm of the positive change to RM.

it was the lad's first pass of the game as well.  give him a chance before ripping into him at least!

Agreed. This game reminded me of a lot of games last season where we dropped stupid points, due to many factors, but one of the main ones being Moyes reluctance to make a change before 70 minutes.

 West Ham and now today Martinez has made early subs and we've gone onto win the game, he see's the danger and reacts to it, whereas under Moyes he would just stick with it and see what happens, then make the changes when we inevitably conceded a goal.

It would've been a very unfortunate red card. He went for the ball, he got the ball, his studs slipped on the top of the ball and he clattered into the lad accidentally. The one on Jagielka was far worse, it was nowhere near the ball.

Post by: blueToffee on October 20, 2013, 01:10:04 AM
I didn't think the Barry tackle was a red. It looked to me like he went for the ball his boot hit the top third of the ball and skid up and over hitting the player, I haven't seen a replay yet though. It was clumsy but I don't think that was a red. Whereas Sagbo didn't even get a yellow for the tackle on Jagielka.

I think it's partially about the opposition too. If we were playing a more glamourous team it would've helped. But in fairness, the game wasn't the best and there were more goals in  those others games before us with the exception of the Man Utd game but that was always going to be ahead of us as it's continuing the narrative of Man United struggling.

Agreed he was dangerous but always willing to pass and worked hard to regain possession as well. Scored a goal and got an assist so pretty game good for him overall and hopefully the sign of an upturn in form for him following his slow start to the season.

I had the sound turned off for the game as I was watching at work. When Mirallas scored, it felt as if it was just a pass to the keeper as I thought the whistle had gone, his shot was so tame. Was surreal.

Pienaar's goal was great.

Surprised that MOTD got so excited about whether Barry touched the ball for Mirallas' goal.

The ball went through his legs, he tried a flick, blocked the view and was offside, he was interfering with play whether he got a touch or not.
