Premier League Match Day 29


Everton's last 5 domestic results:

Tottenham 1-0 Everton
Everton 3-1 Swansea - FA Cup (Traore, Naismith, Baines Pen)
Chelsea 1-0 Everton
Everton 1-0 West Ham (Lukaku)
Arsenal 4-1 Everton - FA Cup (Lukaku)

Everton

Everton crashed out of the FA Cup last weekend as they were defeated 4-1 by Arsenal in a score which flattered the the home side. Romelu Lukaku continued his return with 2 goals in 2 whilst Everton conceded their 7th penalty of the season. Everton have won each of their last 4 matches in the league and haven't had a draw at Goodison Park for 7 matches.

Everton own the 2nd worst record against bottom half teams this season despite just the one defeat although Everton have taken 6 points from the current 10th place team in West Ham and only Chelsea have played fewer matches against bottom half sides. Interestingly only 1 of the 6 draw came at home against West Brom earlier in the season, the other 5 were away to Cardiff, Crystal Palace, Norwich, Stoke, and West Brom

Possible Line-ups

Cardiff

Cardiff ended a run of 4 defeats in a row at the weekend without scoring a goal in any of them as they beat Fulham 3-1 at home in what was Ole-Gunnar Solksjaer's second win as Cardiff manager in 9 Premier League matches. Cardiff going to this away game having lost each of their last 7 on the road which is the worst current run in the league (Norwich are next with 4). They've also failed to score on their last 3 trips which came at Tottenham, Swansea and Manchester United.

David Marshall has made more saves than any other keeper in the league this season having made 22 more saves than the next goalkeeper in Sunderland's Vito Mannone. Of the goalkeepers to play in 20 more matches, Marshall is the only goalkeeper who has averaged a save less than every 30 minutes. However, the goalkeeper has conceded more goals than any other this season (49) which goes to show how much worse off Cardiff would be without him.

Stats and Injuries

(http://i.imgur.com/z5klDYc.png)

Long Term injuries Arouna Kone, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo along with loanee Lacina Traore will all miss out this game whilst Phil Jagielka and Antolin Alcaraz are set to return. Steven Pienaar also picked up a knock in his last outing. Cardiff will be without Mark Hudson who has a hamstring injury whilst Andrew Taylor has a knock.

crowd will be tense for this one

first mistake is definitely getting a groan from the Gwladys I reckon

if Cardiff score first we can expect out players to get all kinds of abuse

plus it's "only" Cardiff, so most will expect us to have won just by turning up

I think its going to be a very interesting weekend, this set of fixtures could be crucial to how the season pans out. Utd play the shit, Spurs have Arsenal ,Newcastle are away to Fulham and Southampton are at home to Norwhich.

A win and results go our way means 5th place is very much on, a draw and results go against us and we get dragged into a battle for 6/7/8th with teams closing in and our momentum possibly stalling.

I expect a nervy and difficult first half but we should have enough quality to see this through by a few goals.

Post by: Mistertonblue on March 09, 2014, 10:34:52 PM
We simply must win this game and ideally with a bit of swagger so we can develop some momentum with some decent fixtures on the horizon.

Would like to see a front 4 of Deulofeu, Barkley, Mirallas and Lukaku with Jagielka back in defence. That's theoretically our most attacking quartet and a home match against a team battling relegation with questionable abilities is surely the best opportunity to try this youthful and pacy line up.

I went through our last 19 league matches this year.  I count 6 first half goals out of our last 19 matches. 

Seems to be a weakness against sides like Cardiff.  Early goals seem to translate to wins against the weaker opponents.  Not as effective against the big boys (late goals rule).

I don't think anyone would no.

It's more that, as RM likes to state, it is performances that guarantee you results in the long term.

If we were to struggle to 1-0 wins over Cardiff and Swansea then the table will look good/better but would they be an indication that we're likely to win some of the big home games coming up or start winning some away games again?

You'd have to say no.

Of course they could be the confidence boosting wins that propel us to better form so they shouldn't be sniffed at in any case but they wouldn't provide much evidence or hope that we'd win the next 9 games 1-0 given that there'll be much tougher opposition in those 9 games.

Didnt realise we had 2 games in hand on Spurs!win both of them and we leapfrog them so indeed the season isnt over!

However in the form table we are probably bottom 6 at the mo so we need to sort that out asap.

We've had some rough fucking games, to be fair.

Spurs, Chelsea and the shite, all away. We were all a bit naive thinking we could win those games.

Sunderland aside (which was one silly mistake) we've only lost to the big sides. Factor in how good we are at home and I think we can have a good end to the season. People are going slightly over the top with their pessimism here. Yes we haven't played particularly well, but we had some really difficult games, and we're still managing to routinely beat teams at home.

I would expect us to beat Cardiff, Swansea and Palace at home a win or 2 against Arsenal, City and United at home would be a massive morale boost

I do worry about our away form though. Although we have none of the big boys left away from home, they are all teams who will put up a real fight. If we can win 4/6 homes and 3/5 aways and draw the rest I'll be pleased

They've both got an average of 2.1 points per game so far this season. Only getting 1.4 average would be a massive collapse.

Surprised this needed to be announced. Bit of a 'man doesn't bite dog' story. Or 'manager doesn't bite self in arse again' story.

Martinez: Howard back for Cardiff clash
March 13, 2014

LIVERPOOL -- Tim Howard will be restored to Everton's team this Saturday after missing last weekend's FA Cup exit to Arsenal, Roberto Martinez has confirmed.

Tim Howard has played every Everton league game he's been available for since his 2006 move.

The United States goalkeeper was on the bench for the 4-1 quarterfinal defeat at the Emirates as the Toffees boss stuck with a decision to play backup Joel Robles in cup ties.

That decision also gave the 35-year-old a breather after playing an international friendly against Ukraine in Cyprus three days before that FA Cup defeat.

But Martinez stated that Howard would be restored to the team for Saturday's visit of struggling Cardiff.

"It's not a problem at all," the manager said. "I think Tim has been performing really, really well this season. We'll go back to Tim, the goalkeeper who has been playing in the league."

Howard has been selected for every Everton league game for which he has been available since joining the club from Manchester United in the summer of 2006, initially on loan.

He missed the 2-1 victory over Southampton on Dec. 29 because he was suspended, and sat out two league games last season as a result of a back injury.

Before that, his last league absence was in September 2007, when a finger injury kept him out for two matches and he was replaced by German Stefan Wessels.

Howard also sat out both league games against Manchester United during the 2006-07 campaign -- the first because he was on loan from Old Trafford and could not play against his parent club, the second as part of an informal 'gentlemen's agreement' after the transfer had been made permanent.

Ahead of the game against Cardiff, Martinez will take a late check on the fitness of captain Phil Jagielka, who has been absent with a hamstring problem, and midfielder Steven Pienaar, who limped off during the cup defeat at Arsenal.

"We'll make a really late decision on Phil in terms of the weekend, just to make sure that he's fully fit for the remainder of the season," the manager confirmed.

Martinez, meanwhile, insists that Everton can still qualify for the Champions League desite his side sitting seventh in the Premier League, nine points off a top-four spot with 11 games to play.

Realistically, their best hopes of a European place lie with the Europa League -- and they would have to finish fifth or six to qualify for that.

"Can you get top four? Well, mathematically, you can," Martinez continued. "If you look at the points tally you need to get into those positions, itís still achievable.

"It would depend too on how the other clubs react to the disappointment of not being involved in Europe, while other clubs are still in Europe.

"I think there are many aspects that are going to affect the final points tally needed to be in that top four.

"After that, youíve got the Europa League qualification, which is another important aim to fight for.

"I think it would be very easy for us to say that we donít want to qualify for Europe and let this season cruise through. That's not the case at all.

"Qualifying for Europe, for us, would be a massive step forward because it would bring big football occasions that I do feel we need to be able to develop into the type of team that we want to be.

"So clearly, getting into Europe is a big objective, and something that would allow us to grow as a football club."

Martinez wants his players to focus on that European target, and has warned his international stars that they will be dropped if they start easing off to save themselves for the World Cup.

He said: "I think what you learn in football is that the moment you start to protect yourself, youíre going to lose your place in the team and that's going to have a negative effect on your chances with the national side.

"I think it's quite straightforward. You need to focus on the games that you have in front of you and finish with good form.

"In the league, you still have a good period before the World Cup starts, so as a player, it's just a case of narrowing the aims in front of you.

"Over the next nine weeks, we have 11 games, and that's very easy to focus on.

"The moment that you start thinking a little bit further ahead, football can be really cruel in that respect.

"If you're not fully focused on what you're doing, you can end up with a really negative aspect in your performances, which is the last thing you want before a major tournament."

No he wasnt. Why would we drop Howard when playing against United?

I seem to remember that although he had signed for us United forced an unwritten clause into the contract that he could not play in the next game against them. At the time someone called it a gentleman's agreement.

That was the game where Turner played - we were 2-0 up and he had a mare in the second half and we lost 4-2 - Phil Neville notched his first og for us.

Such agreements were later made illegal and there was even talk at one stage of United losing the points for enforcing the clause if I remember rightly.

Everton: Howard, Baines, Coleman, Deulofeu, Mirallas, Distin, McCarthy, Lukaku, Barry, Osman (c), Stones

Juan Cala comes in along with Kevin Theohile-Catherine for Cardiff.

With Mirallas on one wing and Deulofeu on the other there's no wonder nobody wants to make runs into the box when the balls out wide.

I'd rather we went 4-3-3 and push both upfront with Lukaku if we persist with them both

As much as Kev has been awful in his decision making, he's also been a nightmare for their defenders and I wouldn't take him off. Keep it the same, we should be ahead and will we be if it carries on this way.

Both Deulofeu and Mirallas play like they have themselves as captain in their Fantasy Football team, the only time that they will pass is if they think they will get an assist from it.

Dominating first half again, keeper having a stormer. Mirallas needs to learn to pass. Expecting the goal to come early in second then floodgates will open

Miralles is a pile of shite. It's not a decision making issue. It's the fact that he thinks he doesn't have a decision to make. He's beyond greedy and it's costing us. He's a massive negative

I'd say its pretty much expected from a loan player, trying hard to prove he's good enough to get a game for his actual team. No excuses from Kev though, selfish selfish player, always playing as an individual, thinks he's ronaldo, when he's actually more adel tarrabt

I think Deulofeu given his age can be given more leeway with his decision making, but even though he is selfish he has created some good opportunities.

Mirallas on the other hand given his experience should be a lot more tuned in with his teammates and when to pass.

Basically I find myself disappointed in one but not the other.

It's more forgivable when Deulofeu does it, but for Mirallas to continue doing it is criminal really. He's an seasoned international football ffs

It's ironic that Mirallas is our top assist maker, imagine how many he could have if he actually passed the ball more often? I wouldn't mind him having a go if they were on target, but most of the time he can't even do that.

Even if he does, it doesn't make his decisions in the first half any better. I'm perfectly hapy for him to decide to take the shot if thats what he wants to do, the times that I find frustrating is when he just makes no decision at all and runs with his head down into a blind corridor.

Post by: hill135 on March 15, 2014, 10:04:46 PM
Mirallas has been our biggest threat. He nearly scored twice.

The real issue isn't Mirallas's greed (though it's been an issue this season), it's that Cardiff have got this tactically right. Every time we get on the ball in the wide areas, three of their players are surrounding our player with it.

Matty Holland on Setanta had already given Coleman MOM which I thought was a bit of Irish bias saying as Marshall had played a blinder. Then up popped Seamus with the goal. Holland the fortune teller.

Great victory in the end.

very disappointed in the substitutions.

Having one of Mirallas and Deulofeu on at all times (and only one) is a must because of the type of players they are. Barkley came on 15 minutes too late, it was blindingly obvious that substitution had to happen.

Agree with the subs being very odd. Not sure we should be taking someone off who has just scored no matter how he had played previously. Would have been on a massive high after that and to get subbed would have probably rightly pissed him off. Should have had another ten mins.  Alls well that ends well though :)

Some drunk fella shouting gibberish all game was the main highlight of a dour slow game, but other highlights included the shout of "Skills" with McGeady's 1st touch of the ball and the looks I got when I screamed "you Baldy Twat " at the ref.

I had a bad stream "again". But even the the actual play I saw, was light and slow in attacking midfield. Once again I think we missed Pienaars pressing and his general making a nuisance of himself.

I think Deulofeu had to come off after 60 min. Part of the hamstring rehab. Probably orders from Barca.

We played well but as usual we not clinical enough and we don't make the right decisions at times.

Thought McGeady was great when he came on. If he keeps doing that  Lulaku will score plenty.
Title: Re: Everton v Cardiff
Post by: blueToffee on March 16, 2014, 01:06:18 AM
Overall I think we need to commit more players into the box than we're doing right now. When we got forward with decent numbers we looked like we could score. When we only have one or two in the box we're trying to thread the needle and more often than not it breaks down on the edge of the 18 yard area.

Either that or break forward with a lot more speed than we're currently doing so we're not trying to break down two banks of four players who are sat deep.
