Title: Everton vs Man City
Post by: the doc on May 03, 2011, 06:47:02 AM
we have a good record against the City, and they havn't been playing well but are winning, Think we will win 2-1, Osman and Baines penalty for us, Silva for them

Happened in a Scotland game a while back. Referee allowed the team to score three unopposed goals and then called FT, as far as I recall.

Maybe I imagined that though.

You right. Lescott will not be able to cope with the awesomeness that is Anichibe.

They do struggle with crosses do Man City so hopefully Baines can provide Cahill with some good chances.

Let's hope we can continue to be their bogey team, got a feeling Moyes will stick with victor up front, with Cahill just behind, don't rate City's full backs defensively so I'd like us to get at them.  Not necessarily the team I would play, but I think we will line up like this:

                                    Howard

Hibbert             Jagielka        Distin       Baines

Coleman          Arteta        Neville       Osman
                                  Cahill
                                Anichebe

Title: Re: Everton vs Man City

He will start with anichibi uptop Cahill deep lying striker

Anichibi did well against city last time and they'v been making
Noises all week of him prooving himself in remaining games

Would prefer beckford up top myself !!

Anichebe will start up top instead of beckford

I must have been watching a different game to you then.

I saw him not really do anything (not really his fault, no service) and then get sent off for 2 silly challenges.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City

Anichebe had a good game against City Verm, so perhaps you were watching a different game.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: evertonjoe on May 07, 2011, 08:49:24 AM
To be honest Verm I think you'll struggle to find anyone who agrees with your opinion of Anichebe's last performance against City. He lead the line well whilst on the pitch and was very unlucky to see himself sent off.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: christiffa25 on May 07, 2011, 12:34:21 PM
Have to admit anichebe did very well against city last time
He did the job he was there to do very well

Then got booked for a foul committed on HIM
Then a harsh second yellow

Maybe the type of game that does suit him as s lone striker
More than beckford who should of started last week

Certain players for certain games.. SAF is a master at it
We have not learnt that yet!

would like to see gueye on left wing. coleman on right wing to give us pace down the flanks and see what they can achieve. That way if we do get pinned back we have a decent outlet.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: april on May 07, 2011, 08:27:50 PM
This could be the game for Victor to show his worth. He can do a good job physically when he wants. Let him run the City defence ragged, Osman can pop in the gaps left. This is the right team for this game.

Wow, we are seemingly trying to have a competition with Mancini as to how many defensive players we can fit into one team? I would love to be proved wrong but that is one boring/uninspiring line up. Did Moyes forget we are the home team?

We have 7 defensive players in that line up! Maybe we are trying to lull them to sleep in the first half and bring on players who might actually have a goal threat in the second half to catch them unawares. I say second half but being realistic the last 20 mins or less.

From open play the only player in our team who you'd think would have any real likelihood of scoring is Osman. The others are capable from time to time of chipping in but they are once in a blue moon type players.

For someone who is the future CB of England we sure use Rodders a lot for attacking reasons.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: VBlue on May 07, 2011, 08:45:20 PM
I think the Neville-Heitinga partnership in DM has done us well.  Arteta on the left (did very well away at Newcastle).  If Rodwell is going to play a more attacking role supporting Big Vic, then I don't mind the line-up at all.

I may be chewing on those words at half-time.  Vic really does have to step up soon.

Post by: blueToffee on May 07, 2011, 08:50:46 PM
It'll be interesting to see how exactly we line up. I'd imagine Rodwell of the three DM's would be the furthest forward but I've yet to see him look the part in that position in the PL.

We are so stationary in attack, the only people moving are Vic, Rodwell and Osman. One of Neville of Heitinga needs to be showing more and given another option or we'll just be relying on the counter-attack and the occasional cross.

Poor performance so far. Osman, Anichebe and Baines are the only ones playing half decent.

Rodwell and Hibbert off, and bring Coleman and Beckford/Cahill on. One of the latter two would give Vic some support up front and Coleman would give us pace, penetration and an outlet down the right.

i like distin's effort but imo we need to replace him and move on. Defensively our record has been very poor ever since he entered the starting line up. Looks like he's lost half a yard and would have been an ideal defender.......5 years ago. People used to moan about yobo for the odd mistake but he was never this bad.

Take Neville off and put Coleman on at least. Then we can move both Osman and Rodwell into the middle and get some pace down the right and just let Heitinga sit in front of the back four with both Osman and Rodwell pushing forward.

Post by: Risky on May 07, 2011, 09:55:32 PM
I didn't think we were as bad as some of the comments on here.  The biggest problem is that although playing well, Victor is isolated and there have been too many hoofed passes to nowhere from Neville in particular.

I'd like to see Coleman on for Neville, with Rodwell or Osman going to the centre.  I also think Beckford for Rodwell might be a good move too.  Would be surprised to see subs before 60 minutes though.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: dunkster on May 07, 2011, 09:55:46 PM
Hibbert is worse
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: blueToffee on May 07, 2011, 09:56:53 PM
Take any 2 of Neville/Rodwell/Heitinga off. Replace them with players who know what to do in midfield.

It's a given we'll see Cahill at some point. After that probably Beckford and Coleman will probably be the other two. I'd have liked to see Gueye and Billy too but probably not likely unless they change the rules and allow us 5 subs.

Dreadful by Moyes...how do you pick a side like that at home? I just hope we change it at HT, but he seemingly only does that to the usual whipping boys Beckford and Billy.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: Youngy09 on May 07, 2011, 09:58:20 PM
Hibbert is worse

I would say equally poor! Both break down our move better than the opposition.
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: cantoffee on May 07, 2011, 09:59:50 PM
I'd prefer to keep Rodwell on, he needs minutes on the pitch. I just think having two DMs neither of which are pushing forward at all is causing us to just hoof to Vic or play it down the wing all the time. Rodwell hasn't been bad, Neville has though. Coleman for Neville and Osman to the middle will do for now. With one or both of Cahill and Beckford ready to come on if/when needed.

Neville was great in the 2nd half no question, but it was as much about removing the unnecessary defensive players from the midfield and the introduction of Beckford who gave us some movement up top.

We started with waaay too many defensive players.

Beckford make a big difference today, this movement caused them trouble, created space and Big vic played 100% better once in 2nd half with becks.
We play much better in a 442 COYB

Neville was great second half but he was terrible first half. 
When he reverts to his natural and best position he is superb

Moyes obviously called on big Dunc to give the lads a half time pep talk.  He frightened them into playing like Everton for at least 1 half of the game!

Credit to Vic for his neverending chasing, and Osman for the brave header.  Credit all round for showing the passion and character so lacking in some of our other games vs lower placed teams. Beckford and Cahill for Hibbert and Rodwell made SUCH a massive difference to our play, I dont care what anybody says, when Beckford is on the pitch, we create chances.

The fact Cahill came on meant it took a lot of defensive pressure (of City) away from the likes of Distin, who made up for his earlier discretion. He is still a fuckwit waiting to happen at times in games though...

Game of 2 halves, yadda yadda, was true, but we took our chances, they didnt. Another double over big spending Citeh. LOVE IT!

I thought Vic was good first half too, but in the second with Beckford he had the chance to actually play the ball and run at players a bit. Would like to see what kind of partnership those two could develop over the remaining games.

I think the crowd helped us there and got the players fired up after 1 or 2 challenges went flying in.  Vic was excellent today.  There was no rolling on the ground, sulking and throwing his hands in the air which just shows what a difference a good attitude makes.  On this form he definately has something to offer.

Beckfords movement was excellent, dragging defenders out of position which we could then exploit and he was unlicky with the Hart save.  He has to start against WBA

Such a bitch, didn't we have more possession? Yes in the first half we played long ball but in the second half we had a great mix of on the floor and direct play, which is what is needed to win games.

He can eat it, hope next time we play them he gets battered by a flying Heitinga tackle.

I think once the crowd got behind Vic he upped it as well. Honestly, a bit of confidence and support from the crowd can do wonders for a young player. Hope to see more of that from him, and hopefully the crowd stays on his side.

To be fair the crowd were good to Vic from the off as they could see him battling, they came alive for the whole team when they give us some passion.  Credit to the team for pulling their fingers out their arses second half and credit to Moyes for actually changing things.  It still pains me though that he doesn't see that the way we set up second half is the way we should be starting nearly all our games!

Great turnaround 2nd half, it's fairly rare that we're able to turn a game round so decisively like that.

Good performances all round, but I think Anichebe would be motm for me for his performances in both halves.  I hope that it sinks in with him that he's capable of performances like that if only he gets his head right.  Beckford also made a big difference with his movement, and the pair of them look like they enjoy playing with each other.

Mancini can suck a pigeon cock as far as I'm concerned.

Great second half performance as a team.... one of the best headed goals i have ever seen by osman too. City looked good first half but we bullied them second half and played football too. Mancini is a whining bitch. Fuck him

On a second note i know they have spent this and that but in all honesty I would only take Silva and Ya Ya out of there side
Title: Re: Everton vs Man City
Post by: blueToffee on May 07, 2011, 11:32:09 PM
Play more players who can attack = scoring more goals. Neville's best position is RB though.

As for Mancini he has done everything he could this season to avoid getting 4th. And I'd agree we didn't have a clue first half and did hit it long as we couldn't do anything else BUT our second half performance that won us the game was not about long ball.

I have say I loved Coleman's contribution to the game. He managed to tick off about half a dozen people inside of 10 mins. Great challenge on Balotelli near the sideline to relieve the pressure we were under at the time too.

Normally id say yes but I know what I would read on that site.

The ground is shit, the team are long ball yard dogs and they were robbed (but thats what scousers do).  They hate Moyes, hope we go down and the "blue dippers" are jealous of them etc.

They are not the brightest.

Extremely brave by Osman; I'm not sure too many others would have gone for it with 15st - or whatever - of Kompany flying at them.

Also, interesting to see Heitinga's reaction to the goal.

You'd think by now that Mancini would realise that we just don't give up and lie down for them just because they can afford to buy players like Dzeko for 27m who at the moment is as much use as a chocolate fireguard . Moyes did what he had to at half time and his team talk must have been good because the players stepped up a gear and City couldn't handle it , when Cahill came on you could almost see them shrink into their shells .
We rode our luck in the first half but then how many teams did we let off the hook ourselves in the early part of the season ? After Tim Howard's great  save from Toure they never gave us a problem and the substitutions were well made and effective . It's proved what I've thought all along , we an give anyone a game if the circumstances are right and Mancini should look at himself very closely for underestimating us which he clearly did by the half time by stating that he could not see City lose ....... Bad mistake against one of the worst teams to assume you've got the better of . A great performance by the lads ... and don't forget we were unable to call on Fellaini and Saha

Watched the game on Football First. I didn't think we were as bad in the first half as the thread made out.

Good to see Vic being the monster he can be when he's arsed, really gave the defence a tough time.

Two really good goals from Ossie and Distin. Ossie is in the form of his life, even the doubters don't post on matchday threads anymore, amazing how they suddenly become "busy" on Saturday's when we're playing well. Coincidence?

Also good to see Moyes make a positive change at half time when we need to go after the game.

Oh if only..............
