Title: Everton V Manchester City
Post by: Shogun on January 28, 2012, 05:45:22 AM
Kick off Tuesday night.

They've had a weeks rest, we'll have had half of that, not feeling confident at all here.

3 nil to man city.

Let's hope this is the start of a decent run. 2-2 draw, Cahill and Donovan for us.

               Howard
Neville Duffy Heitinga Baines

Donovan Fellaini Gibson Drenthe

         The Firecraker Cahill

Really important that we generate a good atmosphere here and play at a high tempo. If we allow Silva time on the ball they will destroy us.

i think we'll need hibbert at rb this game. Man city have fast wingers in Johnson and Kolarov who can both whip in dangerous balls. I doubt neville can keep up with them all game long. the fulham game was ok. no really fast player on the left except duff but he played on the right most of the game.

Adam Johnson will destroy Nev if they play 1v1  (Hoilett) , but i doubt he will start. They will probably play something more narrow like a 4-2-3-1 rather than with out and out wingers, so pip might be okay.

Talking about wingers both Hoilett and Johnson should be available this summer about 10-15 million for the pair of them, come on Bill do it....

So did Samba

So did Lescott before he left us. The point is, in the mad world of player prices you wouldn't get Johnson for £10-£15m, never mind both of them especially with Johnson having nearly 5 years left on his contract.

Isn't he out of contract in the summer?

Post by: krakkokain on January 28, 2012, 08:42:05 PM
True but Hoilett is out of contract and considering that Johnson is not currently in the starting lineup(barely started a prem game this season) in a team that will only strengthen further. Its not out of the realm of possibilty that they could accept a 10-15 million bid for him, taking into account the pressure on him to get regular games by the english press.

Anyway mute point because we dont have the money. Just looking at the money Liverpool and United have wasted, we could go a long long way with 10-20 million right now.

Title: Re: Everton V Manchester City
Post by: dunkster on January 29, 2012, 07:04:57 AM
bet it will be hibbo back in at right back. Neville pushed into midfield, young gueye to be benched for anichebe and saha will be back instead of straq. would be typical Moyes.
Title: Re: Everton V Manchester City
Post by: Derek on January 29, 2012, 05:12:19 PM
They aren't invincible, so I hold out some hope. I don't expect us to go toe-to-toe with them on the attacking front, but I'd like to be a bit of fight and spirit going forward.

I understand the argument that they only just beat us last time round (at a time when they were hammering everyone) but I hate the argument that our tactics were spot on because we lost by the least. They were boring and would never lead to anything that a loss or (if we were lucky) a mind numbingly boring 0-0.

Up and at 'em!
Title: Re: Everton V Manchester City
Post by: Sir Stealth on January 29, 2012, 05:18:35 PM
They only squeezed past Wigan away and we should have more to offer than them.  A good atmosphere is key to us getting a result. Hopefully the Lescott boos help with that

I have a horrible feeling we may see this, solely for the fact that Neville will be asked to perform a man marking job on Silva, much like Rodwell did at the Etihad. I can see Anichebe being given the striker position ahead of Saha too, unless Moyes employs Anichebe on the left wing instead of Gueye.

Hibbo to replace Neville and Drenthe likewise for Geuye would be the changes i'd make.If we play like we did on Friday we can get something out of this,City are not the side they were before xmas,however they are still capable of giving sides a real mauling,if we play like we have the last 2 home games then we will get stuffed.So the same passion as friday please lads and i'll go for 1-1.

Doyle and El Hamdoui will be benched I guess.

Is Kompany back for them? They are different proposition without him at the back, and if they go with Kolarov at left back I think Donavon would give him nightmares.

For us though I would imagine it would be along the lines of;

                            Howard

Hibbert         Duffy     Heitinga       Baines

                            Neville

Donavon      Cahill      Fellaini       Gibson

                           Anichebe

Kompany's suspension is up. He was out for both legs of the CC Semifinal, and the PL matches against Wigan and Spurs.

I also expect Jelavić to at least make an appearance, if not start, presuming the transfer is as close to done as it is reported to be.

2-1 for me, Cahill cancelling out Agüero's opener and Stracqualursi or Jelavić netting the winner five minutes from time.

He has, he just hasn't been punished.

I think he's done well but I can see the worry that his lack of pace and know how could be ruthlessly exposed against City.

Again, there is the argument over whether he could cope with that in the long term. Hibbert obviously is used to playing (well and badly) against this type of opposition.

I do think that we could be exposed height wise though as Heitinga is small for a CB.

I won't mind whichever way Moyes choses.

Possibly, but then you can argue that the fans will be buoyed by Jelavic signing and Pienaar returning, thus inspiring the players against opponents who we've had the number of over the last few years, so we could end up getting the win.

I don't think he needs to have a stormer, but if he's at fault for any goals (and we lose) then he'll be getting slaughtered for it.

Post by: blueToffee on February 01, 2012, 01:18:33 AM
I feel for Duffy, sometimes it seems we only play youth when there is no other able bodied senior team player who can be shoehorned into the spot in question.

I don't think Hibbert is necessarily a bad option there (although two short CBs is a bit worrying), but the bigger problem I really think moves like this can potentially torpedo a young player's confidence. He has made a couple of mistakes but they clearly aren't the reason he is being dropped, case in point Jags for a lot of this season...in fact Jags has at times played a lot worse.

Moyes could stand to have a little more faith in a player who has stepped up well I feel.

This.

Plenty of people would be glad to see the back of Hibbert (me included) and so why he justifies a place when Duffy has done as least as well as those he has replaced is a mystery.

No doubt if we win (or even draw) all that will be glossed over, but it does raise serious questions about why Moyes picks Hibbert and Neville in advance of younger players with more potential !

Subs: Mucha, Duffy, Forshaw, Barkley, Gueye, Baxter, Vellios

Man City XI: Hart, Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Nasri, Barry, Milner, Nasri, Aguero, Dzeko
Subs: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kolarov, Savic, De Jong, Johnson, Razak

Not a whole lot of attacking options for Mancini off the bench. If we nick a goal early, we've got a great chance for 3 points.

I can understand it myself and actually expected it. If Duffy had a nightmare against City tonight it could set him back months, they move the ball around quickly and thats not his strengths anyway. As for worrying about Dzeko he's a bit like Crouch in the air (poor mainly) so City keep it moving on the ground and Hibbert can deal with that.

Tough call from Moyes but the right one in my opinion, but I do hope he's back in for Wigan.

Would losing a match and not playing well really set you back that much??? how and why? he's lost youth, reserve and even first team matches before,

you can't protect young players from losing a match it happens and to be honest playing the best side in the league its even expected, he needs to know the big players are better it's a challenge to equal or better them

Title: Re: Everton V Manchester City
Post by: Risky on February 01, 2012, 01:46:44 AM
I think there's some overreaction to Duffy being dropped in here to be honest.  He's 3 games in to his PL career, so there's no need to get upset about him not getting the experience of playing against City.  If he's good enough, he'll have plenty of opportunities in future.

If he were to come in tonight and have a poor game, which is possible and he has made mistakes so far (he's still at the stage where people turn a blind eye at the moment) then that's what could really do the lad some damage.  He'll be down about not starting tonight for sure, but I doubt it will hurt his confidence.  I'm sure he'll have been spoken to, told he's done well so far but that we don't want to put him under too much pressure when he is so new to PL football.

Youngsters are blooded slowly at EFC, but if they're good enough then they will find there way and stay in.  That's always been the case and I don't think there's cause to get too upset on the basis of tonight's team.

By the way, personally I WOULD have started him tonight.  I can completely understand the argument against it though.

I'll take a scoreless draw at the half, really. Stracq's effort cleared off the line, and the Nasri long range shot could have gone in off the bar.

Stracq looking bright, Cahill pitching in. Kompany on a yellow is great. Wouldn't mind either Gueye and Vellios for Drenthe and Gibson, with Cahill dropping back. Perhaps Barkley for the last 10? There's a goal in this one somewhere.

Moron handcuffing himself to the post. TBU protest? Hmm... We had all the momentum up until that point as well. Might have been better to wait until a bit of City pressure again. ;)

We've been ok in spells, and our pressing has been really, really good. Other times though we've been very sloppy and we could be 1/2 goals down. Cut out the mistakes and we could just nick this one.

True. Donovan's touch hasn't been great, but his corners have been good; he's one that could possibly go off. The problem with the bench is that we don't have much width on the bench that you'd think could impact the game. Outside of Gueye, there's not really a wing option, unless you force Barkley out wide.

Personally, if I'm Moyes I tell Stracq and Cahill to go right at Kompany, try to pick up some fouls and get him booked again. Hold out, try to steal a goal off a set piece or knockdown.

i'm not sure on gibson, i think we all hope he's the answer but with all the midfielders we have i really dont know what our plan is with him. ok as a squad player but not a starter when everyones fit.

personnally i still think he was signed as it was a deal too good to turn down with the possibility of us selling someone in the summer.

I see him as a squad player too, but you can see Moyes playing him week in week out because he is an ex Man U player, despite better options.

This Hibbo and Heitinga were exemplary at the back.

As has been said Fellaini was great and Straq made a right nuisance of himself, if he keeps this up he may well be a full time option for us.

Also nice to see Donovan continuing to rack up the assists but we could really do with getting in some one to replace him before the window shuts.

I don't think I'm alone in feeling that Straq is starting to show he is an Everton player with Everton spirit. He has my affections at the moment. Drenthe is a funny one. He looks like he has the get up and go, and the bright ideas needed to succeed, and he shows flashes of brilliance and flashes of clumbsiness in equal measures. I think he'll come good, especially if we give him the love.

David Moyes deserves a lot of praise for tonight. It makes me happy when I see the guy smile.

brilliant performance from the lads tonight, defended like lions and attacked when possible. was just written for gibson to score his first for us, being an ex united player. fellaini was a monster in midfield, hibbo was fantastic at the back. in fact i can have a single complaint against anyone, well bar the tit who handcuffed himself to the park end goal

the crowd was brilliant too despite being low again, i got goosebumps all over for the first time in ages. best atmosphere and performance of the season by far

Post by: JoeHart on February 01, 2012, 06:05:40 AM
As good as Heitinga was (and it was one his best ever games in a Everton shirt), the radio on the way home said he was MOM not Denis?

I though Denis was outstanding, they way he husslted and worked was very tevez like, albeit taking an extra touch at times to control it.

Really impressed by the big feller

I also noticed city put alot of focus on controlling baines and keeping him marked when everton had the ball

howard didnt have alot to do.

Only 3 things dissapointed me tonight
1. Jelovik wasnt registered in time to play
2, I though some of nevilles distribution at times giving the ball straight back to city was very league 1 (but something we have got use to with neville)
3. I though gibson was awful, especially 2nd half, his passing even his short passes where poor, felli carried him for long periods. Im not having ago at him as I never expect much from him. But when your already prefering rodwell or osman to be in the team ahead of him, it doesnt give you much hope for any improvement from the lad. It was even worse than his villa performance.

If you burst into tears for scoring a goal run your bollocks of till they nearly fall off? definitely. Just needs to keep doing it. Is improving all the time. If he can do that for a contract, get the crowd singing and standing ovations ? would you?

Great to see Moyes happy for once, I think the signings really helped give everyone a boost. Really great to hear Goodison back to sounding alive.

Great effort by the players, that was difference to tonight. Happy to see the support for Straq for the shift he put in, plus the effort Drenthe showed perhaps he is capable of listening. I'd kind of written a permanent stay out for him but if he tracks back as he was doing tonight he may yet win Moyes over.

Great clean sheet too, a bit of luck on that score but perhaps Hibbert and Heitinga are the future :)

As good as Heitinga was (and it was one his best ever games in a Everton shirt), the radio on the way home said he was MOM not Denis?

I though Denis was outstanding, they way he husslted and worked was very tevez like, albeit taking an extra touch at times to control it.

Really impressed by the big feller

I also noticed city put alot of focus on controlling baines and keeping him marked when everton had the ball

howard didnt have alot to do.

Only 3 things dissapointed me tonight
1. Jelovik wasnt registered in time to play
2, I though some of nevilles distribution at times giving the ball straight back to city was very league 1 (but something we have got use to with neville)
3. I though gibson was awful, especially 2nd half, his passing even his short passes where poor, felli carried him for long periods. Im not having ago at him as I never expect much from him. But when your already prefering rodwell or osman to be in the team ahead of him, it doesnt give you much hope for any improvement from the lad. It was even worse than his villa performance.




My commiserations to Manchester City mate.  We're just a better team than your lot.

So proud of the team, manager and club tonight.  This is the fighting spirit that we are known for and long may it continue.  The Manchester billionaires were outfought and out-hustled tonight.  Straq was everything we want in a striker.  As mentioned earlier, I hope Jelavic understands what is expected of him.

COYB!!!

Nothing beats the feeling! I am on a total high this morning.

Stracq was tireless, a total talisman upfront. If he can play like this more often, fecking hell he was some acquisition. The rest of the team were totally up for it and I love it when Goodison is rocking. Absolutely love it.

Add in the fact that we got a couple players and off loaded Saha, then it's been a pretty great day to be an Evertonian!

They were singing "one Darron Gibson" at Old Trafford last night, something that apparently never happened while he was there.  :snigger:
