Title: Everton vs Sunderland
Post by: evertonjoe on February 20, 2011, 08:00:16 PM
Right then lads, let's hope we don't fuck up yet another chance to get our season well and truly back on track!

I would make changes from the Chelsea game as although we did play well Cahill in particular looked well off the pace. This will be a difficult game but I think we can and will get a result against them.

The line up I'd go for is:

Howard

Neville Jagielka Distin Baines

Coleman Arteta Fellaini Bilyaletdinov

Saha Beckford

I fully expect Moyes to continue with Cahill, which would a be a shame as he looked fucked in the second half yesterday. Also wouldn't mind it too much if Osman played as he was decent on the left against Chelsea. Even if Saha isn't fit I still wouldn't play Cahill right now and would give Vic and Beckford a try up front together as they both showed promise at Stamford Bridge whislt lacking a little something, maybe if we play them they can add up to a decent striker.

Everton 2:1 Sunderland
Arteta          Welbeck
Saha

Joe's team for me too although I have the horrible feeling Osman is a shoe in for left mid now (and that right fucks me off).  With Joe's team I expect a 2-0 win.
Title: Re: Everton vs Sunderland
Post by: Derek on February 22, 2011, 11:19:46 PM
In my opinion we simply have to set out to give them a hammering, especially coming off the back of our last result and being at home.

Being overly conservative won't get us anywhere and I'm frankly tired of it. If you can't try to hammer teams at home, then what's the point?

Hoping for a  2-1 win. Same squad as we had against Chelsea except Bily for Osman, and Beckford for Vic assuming Saha is still hurt.

Ultimately a win in this game is very important. The next 5 PL games against Sunderland, Newcastle, Fullham, Birminham City, and AV are all winnable. If we could get 12-15 points from these matches, which will be difficult, then we could do some serious climbing in the table.

I expect us to win today with King and Becks up front, Bily should definately be on teh let though, Osman always wants to come back onto his right foot....when he gets down the flank he has to turn back....Bily gives us alot more balance.

COYB 2-0

No more Bent. No Wellbeck or Cattermole today either. These are here for the taking.

Interesting that they have Sessegnon in their line-up today, we've been linked with him a few times over the last few seasons.

If it makes you feel any better, I just woke up and had a dream that Baines scored two very quickly to help us jump out to a 2 - 0 lead. Bad news being I woke up before the dream ended so I am not sure if we won.

Went to the Stoke Sunderland game the other day with a mate and Sunderland are very bad at defending set pieces, shame our deliveries havn't been up to scratch recently. Also Sessegnon is very tricky and quite quick but doesn't seem to have alot else.

Yeah i wasn't too pleased to see him in the line up either but he did do ok last week, i'm just glad Moyes as gone 4-4-2 with Saha and Beckford up top, but i am guessing Cahill isn't 100% fit and that's why he's on the bench or else it would be Beckford there instead.

To be able to hit the ball with the shin, in to the opposing player to score takes a lot of talent. He made it look like he didn't even mean which only adds to the quality of the finish.

Good to see Osman playing well, he's so much better than Messi.

He might scuff his shots, but his movement all game has been fucking sensational.  He checked his initial run, and preempted where Arteta was going to move that ball to.

Weve missed a player like him for years, now just get more clinical!!!

Good to see we can win 2-0 extremely comfortably and still have the boo boys out on here.

Good performance, we really didn't need to get out of 2nd gear because they were so bad, still did our job though. Arteta was good, Beckford's movement was good and I'd say his finishing was a bit lucky, still deserve it for the runs he made and the space he was able to get into. Rodwell looked good when he came on, and Cahill had a nice few touches. Howard's save was tremendous as well, and the whole defence was solid in front of him.

MOM has to go to Osman, he was fantastic today, created nearly everything, just a shame he didn't score that goal because that was him displaying his technical ability at it's highest level. Cracking game for him, full of commitment and skill. I had wanted to see Bily on the wing but Osman has certainly earned a start in our next match.

Comfortable win, yet the same old trolls on here. You'd have to be slightly odd not to see Osman as close to, if not the, motm. I thought Distin was superb at the back once again and Jags looked more confident. Also good to see Baines having once of his better games defensively even if he was a bit lacking up front.

Fellaini looked worried about his left ankle so worried he strained. Hopefully it's not too bad but I reckon out for2 weeks.
Beckford pulled up after collecting a pass on the run. Not sure if it was his calf or thigh that was strained. He didn't look happy tho so hope not out for a few weeks again.

Not a great game but 3 points. Ossie deserved a goal

First half was decent, second half was a little dull but we never looked threatened really and the clean sheet was nice.

"We created chances and we're a little disappointed that we didn't go on and take one or two of the other ones."  That is what I meant to say earlier, quoted from our manager.

I agree with Moyes's assesment , a very professional performance , especially the 2nd half where we tightened things up but still could have got a few more

A bit reminiscent of not so long ago when we were a better team and won a lot more games this way. I'll take dull proficiency in the league the rest of the season. It's the "excitement" of a relegation scrap that I can do without. An exciting FA Cup run would be nice though.

I agree, a few dull one nils would tide me over nicely with a good cup run!

The highlight of the second half was the random fella in the lower gwladys  street shouting "Simon" and did so for about 5 minutes

We really needed the 3 points today so excellent result putting us 5 points clear from the relegation zone and would you believe we are in the top half of the table!

4-0 would have just about shown our dominance. Sunderland were, admittedly, below par but we were solid throughout. Immensely happy with the result.

My new wife was at the game as her first ever visit to Goodison. She absolutely adored it. I'm made up for her!

As a side, she said all of our players were friendly after the game, but Saha was the only one willing to devote as much time as needed to speaking with the fans, and he was happy to speak to everyone and take photos with everyone that asked.

Injured he may be fairly often, but class like that is why we're all so proud to be Evertonians.

very comfortable performance today, i said on page two that i fancied beckford to score and he delivered with two good but scruffy goals just a shame he got a knock before he could get the hat trick

everyone else had a decent game, even osman. shame that certain members of this board can't give praise where praise is due. up to 10th in the league now, lets keep it going starting with the cup tie on tuesday then at st james next saturday

That was some seriously good tickets she had if she got to meet all the players. Plus you lucky she didn't run off with Cahill after he showed her his "tattoo:

I was dreading the worst after the first couple of minutes when we lost the ball three times for no apparant reason.
But the early goal turned things around, and we didn't look back.
A tidy display, shame we couldn't score more.

She just caught them as they were leaving. I think she's a fan of Bily, to be honest. :)
