I'm hoping that the King and The Yak start up front . Utd are not comfortable when the game is taken to them and the Yak looked like he was finally starting to get it back together last night

Could not agree more, people complain when either of these are lone strikers and say they look lazy, but i personally would like to see this partnership a bit more. The few times they have played together they do compliment each other and pose that bit more of a threat up front.

I think the team will be the same as Fellaini's Hairdresser but I think Pienaar could stay on the left and Moyes will give Bily a chance to play off the striker.

I can't remember exactly but I think Moyes played 4-4-2 at home against United last season when Fellaini scored but I don't think he will with how good United are playing at the minute.

We need to go at them. Their defence has been the weakest part of their game this year. Keeping Rooney silent will be difficult so I say get Heitinga on the job.

They will be rubbing their hands at the thought of Cahill missing the game.

United are playing well because Rooney is playing well(too put it mildly), if he only has an average game we're just as good as them, if he has a stormer there's almost no way we can stop them. I hope for a win and definitely think it's possible, but my guess would be a 2-2 draw Bily and Yak for us and Rooney and Fletcher for them.

I was there when we won 1-0 back in '05. One of the best days of my young life :)

But we as we proved last week, records and statistics can be turned on their head. We beat Chelsea for the first time in 10 years, so beating United isn't that unbelieveable. We can do it.

Am saying we always struggle against them, even when we play better against them. I think it's a mental thing like with Chelsea. I hope we can beat them of course, but with Moyes' extremely poor record against top 4 sides, he has a lot to prove in this regard.

If we had Rooney, of course we'd be closer to them, perhaps top 4 quality even.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: bang on February 17, 2010, 06:07:51 PM
Inthink it is a mental thing but also I'm sure the top teams are more consistant against us. There haven't been too many bad performances against us, whereas when they play other teams they can take their foot of the pedal. My point about Rooney was that I think they would struggle without him. I was watching him last night rather than watching the game, he has so much drive andit was a positional masterclass.
Title: Re: everton v united

For a top club like Utd, on paper, I think they do have an average looking squad. But of course on the pitch they seem to always be able to pull it off. Yep, Rooney has become the new Ronaldo for them for sure.

absolutely, maybe even more so than ronaldo. I couldn't see him performing as well as Rooney is in their current team. For me in terms of abilty and what he offers the team in terms of inspiration and drive, he is the best player in the world at the moment

Old Trafford last season they only beat us on a dodgy penalty award , we contained them well , previous season when pienaar tripped one of their players up in the area , still don't know why he did that , just stook his heel out , The Manny Fernandes game at GP , we were well on top until Turner dropped the ball to give them a jammy goal , Duncan's game ........

I'd go like that, but with a midfield three instead of two centre midfielders and a second striker. Hopefully Donovan and Pienaar can play closer to Saha, making it more of a 4-3-3 when we attack.

I wouldn't move Osman behind the striker, he usually gets bullied there and struggles with his back to goal, I also think we'll need his energy and tenacity in the middle of the park, considering Mikel's lack of fitness.

I think we just have to hope Cahill is fit, he'll be a big big miss if not. That said lets not do a Distin with him and knacker him for 6 weeks by making him play injured.

If Cahill is missing I'd go with Yak with Saha but you'd then be losing the energy and the headers. Vaughan could be an option otherwise, or perhaps Billy.

I'd love to have Coleman on but I can't see it.

I think 442 is a gamble against a side of United's quality AND current form. As has already been stated, it's about what kind of tempo we adopt. 451 and a fast tempo.... and then the Yak is an option on the bench.

Too risky to play a 442 and if we concede early because the midfield is too lightweight then it may be too late to change things, once United get into their stride. United's strength is work-rate in midfield, and we should address it.

If Cahill's out it would be good to see Moyes go 4-4-2. With the Yak and Saha up front surely they could have a real good go at a defence with possibly Brown/Evans at the back, though I doubt that'll happen.

1-1
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: ToxtethBlue on February 18, 2010, 08:58:26 PM
I think it'll be Pienaar behind Saha and Bilyaletdinov wide left if Cahill is out, which he probably will be. Pienaar has experience in the position, he has the workrate and tenacity that Cahill has and obviously he's creative and always willing to get involved, which will improve our passing options.

Given how well Baines and Pienaar work together I would be reluctant to break them up.  If we do go 4-5-1 with Cahill out Bily should get a go.  He has proved he likes pass and move and running into the box and he has the height (if not the strength) to at least make a nuisance of himself in the air. 
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: ToxtethBlue on February 19, 2010, 01:21:20 AM
True, but we did beat the likes of Man City and Chelsea without the Baines/Pienaar combination. I'm just going by what Moyes did during the Sporting game, he put Bilyaletdinov on the left and pushed Pienaar into a central role, behind the striker.

The lack of height in that side is worry, it's quite technical and hardworking, but there is a lack of presence there, Cahill seems to balance it out nicely with his physical, aggressive style of play. I think Arteta is a very capable defender, intelligent and aware, but he's still a yard or two off the pace, so it's a bit of a worry.

If we can keep Rooney quiet, like we did with Drogba and Anelka, we can be in with a shout. Usual story though, depends which Everton turn up.

A draw of any kind will do me. Anything more is a massive bonus.

If we stop rooney (and the ref :P) we have a real real chance
We have to win the midfield battle which we would of done with felli :( but now i can see Moyes Moving Neville to Midfield and then Heitinga to Right Back or take Heitinga from CB to DM and Play Yobo and Distin

United will play a 4-4-2, 4-5-1 would defiantly be better in this case

my team would be
-------------------Howard----------------

He is but his height alone will at least give them something to think about.  Pienaar certainly won't win any headers in the middle either and I would rather see him on the left.  Bily has a better shot on him for me and I would rather see him being the one getting onto any crosses and through balls.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Dr. Sponge on February 19, 2010, 04:29:50 AM
I'd be reluctant to remove Heitinga from central defence. I say keep him there, he's settled and performing well in favoured position, and I think he'll keep Rooney quiet.

It'll be the same team, except Bilya in for Cahill.

Rooney is unplayable apprently.  Well, yes, if you let him wander into your box unmarked like AC then he is.  Absolute crap.
They are aso missing Giggs and Nani so that reduces their midfield threat somewhat.

United were lucky to still be in the game at half time and the 3-2 does not reflect the play.  Their defence is awful and if we can get at them then we'll win.

Agreed.

He's mistake prone under pressure. Although he's not like Bramble of old where he could just throw in some mad error at any point of the game.

Which basically means that we have to have a high tempo and chase balls over the top particularly well.

I also agree with TopFlight.

They could/should have been at least 2-0 down in that first half in Milan.

They still have a formidable attacking threat, so that means we must be clinical when chances come our way.

Subs: Nash, Yobo, Vaughan, Gosling, Yakubu, Rodwell, Coleman.

Berbatov partners Rooney up front, and their centre back pairing is Brown and Evans. If Saha is on top of his game then he'll take them apart I reckon.

Interesting selection gives us the opportunity to play Bilya in the hole where I think he'll be more suited. I'd expect Pienaar to operate down the left along with Leighton don't see any reason to break that pairing up as it's so effective for us, even though I think Pienaar can also offer a lot in the central position behind the striker.

Either of them (Piennar/Bilya) playing in the central role is an exciting idea tbh and the os is hinting that Pienaar will be the one that plays there, so we'll see, like you say they could flip flop, I just think that Pienaar and Baines have such a good understanding down that left side that Moyes may be reluctant to break that pairing up.

They only have Fletcher and Carrick in the middle, we should dominate that pair.

Well, Fletcher can be got at, but Carrick has been exceptional recently.

If only we had a lanky afro-sporting Belgian there to jostle them about... :(

Really promising that, especially the way we responded to going behind.  We were the better team in the last 20 minutes of the half and probably should have gone in ahead.

More of the same please...
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Thom on February 20, 2010, 07:35:53 PM
Good first half, and  they're here for the taking in my opinion. We've been the more consistent team since we equalised.

It was an awful goal to concede, but Bily made up for that with an excellent strike. Osman and Donovan have been fantastic for us in my opinion, and we should have had two penalties as well.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Trowel on February 20, 2010, 07:36:04 PM
Osman our best player by a mile, outstanding half from him yet again. I think Arteta/Rodwell will happen sooner rather than later, and get the feeling that Billy isn't going to last much longer after only having one good kick all half - one hell of a good kick mind...
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Silas on February 20, 2010, 07:36:58 PM
I don't know what has happened to Moyes against the top teams this season but he seems to have finally understood that we are good enough to try and go toe to toe with them.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Fellaini25 on February 20, 2010, 07:38:19 PM
Very very good and promising half. Our passing and movement has been excellent and we have been the better team. I think overall the whole team are doing well, especially Donovan and Osman. Bily is not a winger but I think he is having a good game and what a goal that was, I still want to see him playing behind the striker though as I think that is where he will excel.  We have been putting United under pressure all game and I expect to see the same in the second half.

The only worry I have is Distin keeps getting caught out of position or leaving his man.

No one can Bily come off, he has looked dangerous getting in behind Saha and linking up well.  He only hasn't seen too much of the ball because Baines, Pienaar and Arteta have played a lot down the left.

Bily is making some phenomenal runs, I reckon he has to stay on the pitch until he's knackered because he's filling the role of "absolute f**king nuisance" that Cahill does so well.

We have kept the ball on the floor and maintained possession very well.  Sort of looked like Arsenal passing the ball about!  Let's go for a 3-2 win - I don't see us keeping Rooney off the scoresheet in the second half.  Saha and Rodwell to do the business!
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Fynci on February 20, 2010, 07:46:28 PM
Wasn't Billy supposed to be an attacking midfielder who plays just behind the striker? If he moves like that, then why isn't he in that spot more often? His movement today has been superb. Have to say that it's hard to moan at anything in that first half - great performance throughout. I just hope the second half continues in the same vein.

Osman has been fantastic, been doing Cahill's running but with better technique. I hope we can carry on like this and convert some, we looked better and more likely to score after the goals. United will be better second half, will need to up our game more so.

Because Cahill plays there but I would like to see Bily there more often, he is a different player to Cahill so it would be good.

Played that lot off the park today.  We were under control, but pressing forward without gifting them possession.  Six amazing points in the last two weeks.  Who would have thought that when we were dreading the February fixture list?  COYB!!!

Everton hero Dan Gosling: "It was a great team performance. We've been on a good run, and it's nice to get the three points. We're missing a couple of big players, but we've all come together this week, we had a good week training - and it showed today. The key to it was hard work, run more than them and go at them, because we're a good team at home and away."

Spot on.

Useless Everton. Should of been at least 4. What a wonderful start to my Saturday.

Post by: Derek on February 20, 2010, 08:54:26 PM
Being honest we could have had a penalty or two, and we had a few other opportunities in the first half especially. Could be 5-1 or more. :D

Derek,
I just came to post that exact quote!  Hell, I think I will:

Everton hero Dan Gosling: "It was a great team performance. We've been on a good run, and it's nice to get the three points. We're missing a couple of big players, but we've all come together this week, we had a good week training - and it showed today. The key to it was hard work, run more than them and go at them, because we're a good team at home and away."

So proud of that statement.  We are taking the game to these guys and winning.  Can't beat the feeling!
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Derek on February 20, 2010, 09:06:09 PM
We can outrun anyone, of that I'm sure. Add in the belief that we can go at them - which we can and here we are! Fantastic feeling!

Lets hope we round the month off with Sporting and Spurs steamrollered too!
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: bryan on February 20, 2010, 09:06:52 PM
The last week also shows that Everton are a team - not beholden to any one player.  They play for each other, the gaffer and the fans.  We need to remember this feeling, looking at the players on the pitch, when the next big name tries to hold us to ransom for their signature.

Just hope we can carry this momentum into the Sporting game.  Would be immense for us to advance, both for our confidence and $$$ of advancing.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: bryan on February 20, 2010, 09:15:24 PM
We need to advance, extend Donovan's loan and announce Pienaar's new deal.  That is the only way to top this last week!
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Ridge on February 20, 2010, 09:27:27 PM
Absolutely fantastic, outplayed them and had much the better chances. Rodwell's goal was brilliant, such a good finish to kill the game. Pienaar again creating the magic to change the game, Donovan giving us a fast outlet you can play in to space.

Gosling wants to influence things so much, he seems to excel on the big occasion.

Get the fuck in.  :woohoo:

As somebody said, most of us, even the optimists were somewhat dreading February, but so far so good.

Just goes to show that we have a decent squad.

Beat Manchester United, fair and square, excellent.

Anyone else think the ref was dressed in red today ? or does it really not matter when you win?

Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Weasel on February 20, 2010, 09:42:32 PM
Oustanding, absolutely made up too, obvioulsy! Impressed with Pienaar as usual, as Ridge said Gosling excells on the big occasion and we need to carry on like this and show Sporting how Everton really do play.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: chang on February 20, 2010, 09:51:27 PM
What impresses me about the Chelsea and Man U games is that we fought back from a goal down on both occasions.

And both times we didn't just start long balling it.  We outplayed them.

First Chelski then Everywhere but Manchester United, amazing just amazing. Hope we can keep Rodwell (price would have to be upwards of 30) and Goose was amazing. COYB!!!

Couldn't agree more. Never seen such a one sided case of refereeing since the 'Clattenburg Derby'.
Title: Everton v United: 4 extra minutes.
Post by: Echoance on February 21, 2010, 12:33:23 AM
I rarely post here and perhaps I should just enjoy the victory and the way in which it was gained (I am), but if ever there was evidence that there's a bias towards the top teams, it was the 4 minutes added on to the end of the game.

Can someone please tell me where they came from?

Were there stoppages that, in my elation, I just can't recall?

I ask this question in earnest. Sorry to put a dampener on the proceedings.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Derek on February 21, 2010, 12:44:21 AM
Well they add thirty seconds per substitute and then 30 seconds per goal, I think, so that means 3 minutes or so.
Title: Re: everton v united
Post by: Sprooly on February 21, 2010, 06:57:22 AM
yeah it was meant to be 3 but after jack scored it become 4 i think
