Title: Leicester City v Everton
Post by: Gash on October 26, 2017, 07:51:24 PM
Feeling a bit more confident about this one.

Harder to predict the line up now. Think Unsworth might stick to playing with at least one winger which would be nice

                Pickford
Holgate Keane Jagielka Baines
                  Gana
           Davies Sigurdsson
Lookman   Rooney    Vlasic

Subs - Joel, Williams, Kenny, Klaassen, DCL, Sandro, Mirrallas              Morgan if not ill goes in but not sure for who (probably Klaassen on bench)

Holgate being a more defensive minded RB means we need an out and out winger on his side running at the full back. Vlasic looks tidy and can hopefully link up with Baines. I can't see him dropping Rooney and Sigurdsson needs a run through the middle. Davies and Gana with the legs in midfield


We've got quite a bit of depth in midfield haven't we? Whether it's to a good standard or not is up for debate but we have got McCarthy, Besic, Lennon, Big Benj (I'm going with @TheRam (https://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=1602) on this) who aren't on my bench.

Even Niasse doesn't make my bench although he probably should go on there instead of Sandro

Edit: Even add Bolasie to the squad and it's quite full

I would have Kenny at RB, and on the bench Holgate, Garbutt, Niasse, DCL, Lennon, Mirallas, and Robles.

I think we'll see Kenny retain his place at RB and Big Benj drop to the bench for Gueye. I'd like to see Lennon keep his place.

Garbutt isnt included in the Premier League squad so can't be picked.

I think he will keep a basis of the team and shape.

 I'd be surprised if he didn't keep Kenny he was much better second half presume he got instruction to get forward and support the attacks more. Maybe Keane for Williams?

I'd imagine he will go with a midfield 3 of Gueye, Davies and Schneiderlin if he is well enough. And front 3 of Rooney, Mirallas and possibly Gylfi. Which as long as he made sure Mirallas holds his width having one narrow wide player isn't the end of the world. The problem comes when the instructions arent there or players dont follow instructions and everyone comes central.

I'd still be tempted to have DCL on his own over Rooney. Hard one because Rooney looks much more of a goal threat and we dont have many of them but I do feel we lack a lot in mobility and having a target if he is on his own. You have to be very accurate with balls into him and everything is in to feet which is much easier for defenders to deal with.

If you want to start Rooney, you need 2 up top.  Otherwise, there's no point.

That period second half yesterday where Rooney was linking up with Mirallas and Baines was the best we've looked at creating chances all season. It lacked a bit of a focal point though. If we presume Leicester are going to have a variation of 4-4-2, maybe matching them with Calvert-Lewin up front would be the best option. (I'm loathe to suggest dropping Rooney into midfield for obvious reasons, but this might be the kind of match where it would work too.)

Agreed. I also thought we lost that momentum when Rooney went off and Niasse came on. For the remaining time after that we werent having any consistent attacks or patterns of play in the final third as DCL and Niasse were very high (same against Burnley werent varied enough in what they were doing as a pair) and we missed that extra link.

Can do it again in January if whoever the manager is wants to include him. You think he would be in the squad as no point not being if there is space, but same time he has played about 5 PL games and is 25 later in the season so not sure we should be expecting to be some kind of answer to replacing Baines at some point.

Yes, this has been my team preference for a while, providing Rooney can hold his position (if not, DCL and Niasse did just fine when they came on last night)

Not sure I'd like to see a Holgate/Lookman partnership down the right personally.

I might be clouded by last night's performance where he kept drifting in to the middle, but I don't think he'd offer the width that we would need in front of Holgate to have a balanced side.

I wouldn't play Keane ,Schneiderlin or Mirallas from the off ,the first two because we have to have faith in the ones who played last night and I think Mirallas has to do a lot more so Vlasic is far more valuable to the team , I have never been fond of ten minutes max. players more for the 90 minute ones .I thought James played well last night -it is easy with Koemans spat to forget he was ,alongside Barry the heart of the team .

I think the biggest issue with dropping Rooney is that I'm not sure we have another goal threat.

Not many players look like scoring but he is one of them who you always feel could grab a goal.

He may not always follow instructions but I think if we can get another midfield player closer to him we will see more of the ball and he will be more likely to hold his position.
Title: Re: Leicester City v Everton

It won't be - but would like it to be:

                           Pickford
  Kenny      Keane            Jags        Baines
           Davies      Baningime       Vlasic
                           Sigurdsson
           DCL                                  Rooney

Bench: Robles; Holgate; Schneiderlin; Gueye; Lookman; Mirallas; Niasse

           Pickford
Kenny Keane Jags Baines
        Davies Gana
Lennon                 Vlasic
          Sigurdsson
              DCL

I would start almost the same but with Rooney and Niasse instead of Sigurdsson and DCL then look to change to your line-up in the 2nd half if we're not creating chances.

Kenny      Williams Jags   Baines
           
                 Davies   Gana/MS

Lennon         Vlasic           Mirallas

                        Rooney

Yes we played well as soon as Davies was pushed up nearer to him.

The issue is if weíre deep and and the midfield gets dragged back they need to be accurate with their passes, and weíve struggled to pass the ball 10 yards from cm areas this season.

But hopefully weíll be more on the front foot more often and also improve our general play anyway.

It's balanced, but like any eleven from our squad: can we score three goals in a game?
 
Not convinced, narrow victories at best - although that will do

Title: Re: Leicester City v Everton
Post by: Evertonian in NC on October 27, 2017, 02:07:35 AM
I think Lennon and Vlasic will be pests and open up space for Sigurdsson and DCL to operate.  To me, that's the ideal way to attack a side like Leicester.

The idea of Rooney in midfield in a Prem game makes me slightly nauseous tbh. He'll be taking up starting positions behind the centre halves, and throwing in at least one of two hospital passes a game near our own goal guaranteed. He does that when he's up front. Bad idea.

I really think we should plan for a Rooney-less first team now. I think he has a role in the squad and from the bench and maybe if we ever play two up top but we spent £45m on someone who should be our No 10 every game now and DCL offers us the movement you need up top when you have a one-paced side such as ours.

Looking forward too this but at the same time nervous.

Think if we want to adopt a pressing game we will see Lennon deffo start, along with Mirallas or Lookman, just glad we are finally seeing width.

Think Sigurrdson needs to start as much as possible from now on, see how he gets on with players that actually move around him and make runs.

So when he starts in midfield it's bad because he plays bad passes when he is up front !!!! Lost me there

He hasn't had the chance to play in a semi-functioning team yet, let along his preferred position. I'd like to see at least the former before jumping to premature conclusions that will no doubt come back to embarrass in the future.

We've only got two scorers in the league all season so that's not much of an achievement and considering two of those came in the first two matches and another was a penalty then I don't think you should overstate his importance either.

I am saying Wayne Rooney will not be a part of the next good Everton side, and he's not good enough NOW to be taking starting minutes away from players that will (or at least might).  It's time to move on, and grow as a real unit/team.  Rooney doesn't help that one bit.  He's not making other players better, he just wanders all over the pitch and scores the odd goal (given a huge amount of minutes).  That's all.

People like watching him for sentimental reasons.  But he shouldn't be starting.

Your comparing him tho to niasse who is not good enough now, he wasn't good enough ever and in no way should we build a side around him.

Who is the best centre forward we have at Everton?

And no, I don't think Niasse is better than him.  But DCL is at least as good, and will get better with time/experience.  Sandro also needs to play in order to adapt and improve.  And FFS, we need to bring somebody in during the January window.

You are inferring he has not played there when he has and showed fuck all a quality player would show something wherever he played,but then you think Rooney is crap sums it up really.

I am saying the "excuse" for Rooney needing to be in the XI because "he has the most goals" is silly.

DCL is the best center forward option we have at present, all things considered.  Not even close.  And we owe it to ourselves to TRY a run of matches with Sigurdsson behind him.

It's not just cos of the goals tho, it's his link up play, the fact he can hold up play, win fouls, gain us yards up the pitch, pick a pass.

Dcl is not the best option, he should be blooded in as he is only twenty and asking him to lead a front line is ridiculous.

Solanke at Liverpool, who incidentally won player if the tournament at the world's, comes on a sub for a Liverpool side that plays no centre forward.

Sigurdsson has offered fuck all really, why does he deserve more time than rooney?

We can't play for the future when we are in the bottom three, we need to play for now so imo rooney plays as he is our only serious goal threat.

DCL isn't the answer. The ball breaks to our striker who is through 1 on 1 with the keeper, who'd you choose, DCL, Niasse or Rooney?
Say anyone other than Rooney and you're lying.
I know its a hypothetical situation but with our current lack of creativity and goals we need to be clinical. DCLs runs might look good but he'd probably need twice as many opportunities  as Rooney for the same return and that's something we haven't got.

Rooney's wander lust is the problem he undermines others, no point in him dropping back to pick the ball up in a full back position, what the fuck does he do it for? He can still put the ball in the net just stay up there and save yer fuckin old legs until a chance comes along and stop playing superman.

Post by: Evertonian in NC on October 28, 2017, 02:36:30 AM
No, I want DCL.  I don't think Rooney has linked up well at all, or helped anyone else on the team.  That's been very disappointing.  He has more goal-scoring ability than I expected, but the rest has been awful (after the first few matches).

Rooney diminishes Sigurdsson on the pitch.  Takes away his room to operate because he has no positional discipline (which was a problem late at United, as others have stated).  We have made a significant investment, and he's young enough to have 3-4 good years at Everton.  Surely he's worth a 2 month run to see what you've really got, with competent management and room on the pitch to perform.  Makes sense for present and future.

DCL needs to carry more goal threat in PL matches for any sort of reliance to be placed on him.

I canít recall many missed chances which is a worry, more than if he was missing a couple of good ones a game.

He obviously has the advantage if weíre solely going to be playing balls into the channels but youíd hope in most games that weíd be at least equal in possession / territory etc.

Re Rooney Iíd say anyone majorly disappointed with him is a) not applying the same reasons for others poor form so far and b) doing the opposite of sentimentality and comparing what he is now to about 5-8 years ago.

Again, Niasse has just as many goals from open play as Rooney, nobody clamors for him to be in the XI every week.

Each man is best used as a bench option, unless we play 2 up top.
Obviously didn't mean to like that,for you to compare them 2 is absolutely unbelievable,and fucking embarrassing.

I was quite pleased with that side Unsworth put out against Chelsea, bar Williams and Rooney (especially upfront).
 
The fact of the matter is the likes of Sigurdsson, Klassen and Sandro are all on their knees as far as recent performances and form go. Rooney is pretty much at this same level now for the foreseeable. The fact it's a toss of a coin who should start between the four of them tells you everything.
Once Unsy gets a system going and regular performances, Rooney shouldn't be anywhere near starting most games.

Tough game this, a draw will be a good result. Rooney has been our most consistent player this season, cant believe people are wanting him dropped, he's our only decent goalscorer. He's scored about 5 goals already? which means he will probably end up on around 15+ for the season of he keeps this level up. Not bad for a free transfer and as good as what anyone would have expected. Bigger problems than Rooney in this squad.

That's the big thing I've noticed is his passing has been dreadful at times. At first I thought it was some players not being on his wavelength and not being there for the pass but the last few games you can see more and more simple passes being poor

Itís more everyone else gets a pass because of how poor weíve been, yet heís looked better than pretty much everyone else but isnít afforded the same presumed upswing.

Not often I disagree with you but it depends why you think weíve been so poor. How much was it the players selected, the tactics, etc.  Iíll hold my hand up and say I wasnít for Rooney coming back on the basis of his form at Man Utd these last few years. So maybe Iím biased.

However, I just see a continuation of the Man Utd form here, and weíre looking awfully like Man United were at times in recent seasons. I think he has played well in periods in most games, but I also think Koeman was playing a lot of things through him as a substitute for tactics at times. Get the ball to Rooney, heíll dictate things...we were mimicking the England national team and their poor management. That as it did at Man Utd come at a certain cost. Mind you, not saying itís all negative as he clearly can contribute but just Iíd rather it in more limited terms than we are right now. But no, I donít suppose I give Rooney as much of the benefit of the doubt that heíd significantly change, as beyond Everton this is what weíve seen from him at Man United or England. And while he has got what 4 goals from open play, something weíre struggling with heís also pretty dang lucky not have given away a couple from some suicidal passing in midfield.

Personally, I think weíre struggling more because the options we have for what we need right now. I donít think Rooney (while still offering a goal threat)  is what we need for a regular starter, but I donít think DCL is ready yet either. No goals in the PL this season while probably most opportunities of any of our options is not something we can rely on. Mirallas works but offers very sporadic benefits. Sandro...who knows but Iíd probably have the most leniency toward him as I think he needs some guidance but he hasnít played as smart as Iíd like so heís probably in the ďnot quite yetĒ camp with DCL. That leaves us with Niasse..?

We need better options, but I doubt thatís a statement most would find very radical.

I donít think we can expect much better from Rooney, much like I doubt we can expect a radical change in goal haul from DCL. We need to find/buy other ways, and other players to contribute.

I haven't said I do. I was making an observation of his passing in recent games. A player of Rooney's experience should not be getting caught up in the 'trying to hard' motion. He's not a kid breaking through desperate to make it. He's a seasoned pro who has played in the biggest club games there are. You'd think he'd be able to bring a bit of calm to his game to improve

Post by: Evertonian in NC on October 28, 2017, 08:00:02 PM
I 100% agree that we need to bring in someone better than Rooney, and more game-ready than DCL, post-haste.  Just think it's worth our while to give DCL in front of Sigurdsson a few months as our primary setup until we can get that settled, with Rooney, Sandro, and Niasse as backup and 4-4-2 options.  That's all.

"3 goals from open play" is making a mountain out of a molehill, that shouldn't secure anything for anybody, especially when the rest of a well-rounded player's elements are out of whack.

If DCL continues to struggle and Rooney looks a world beater in his reserve action, you can always make a change.  But I think Rooney should have to earn his way back now.  And yes, maybe it is somewhat of a matter of lining up with our pre-conceived notions (ie, is Rooney "falling right back on his old, undisciplined Utd habits" or "trying too hard because he loves Everton too much").  Skeptic v. true believer.

Agree with this but add that whilst his passing has been poor at times, it's also been by far the best in the team at times too. He seems to have phases in games where everything is either coming off or nothing is. But all in he has to stay in the team because he's our most creative player and our biggest goal threat all in one.

On a general point about the striker we might find it a bit easier in Jan / next summer as before we were looking for a very specific skill set.

Whoever is in charge may have a more general requirement from the striker so hopefully the pool of options is bigger.

Anyways - not wasting the ticket, there is another resident called John who's a Notts County fan and hates Forest, Derby, Leicester so I'm taking him instead and he can be an honourary Evertonian for today. Hope he has a great day out and sees Leicester getting smashed!

This is actually a difficult game . Appleton being an assistant has obviously been more hands on than Unsworth being with the U23's so Puel doesn't really have to do anything for this game . Unsworth has to pick the most confident and hard working 11 in the short term as opposed to the best ( out of form ) 11 on paper . There was enough in the Chelsea game , keeping it tight and then responding after going behind , to believe he can get the result today . 1-2 for us with Rooney and Lookman ( off the bench ) scoring .

It's incredible how such a good player like Lennon was frozen out by Koeman in a team that was desperately lacking width.

In terms of player the right midfield role and supporting the full back behind him he's excellent.

Said a lot when the Spurs fans were chanting his name when they come to Goodison earlier in the season.

Sadly I think you're right that you can't play them both due to Rooneys insistence on roaming the field to get the ball BUT I'd prefer to see our 45 million pound signing starting now the team has some width and bring Rooney on as an impact sub after 60 mins...just wondering what is going through Sigurdsons head now he's on the subs bench for a team in the relegation zone. Rightly or wrongly, we bought him, we own him... he's more important to our future than Rooney...

Really hope we win and the lads prove me wrong BUT....... looking at our team objectively we are light years away from being contenders for anything.  I am genuinely shocked that Baines and Williams are still starters.  I love a bit of Gana and Davies in the center at least they will fight for the ball.  Mirallas should have been sold already.  Rooney is done and it was a clever piece of marketing to "bring him home" to cover over the cracks of Roms departure.  Vlasic was the only bright spark of the last few weeks (where is he).  Sig and Klassen need to get the finger out.

At most we have a team that will remain in mid-table obscurity for the foreseeable future.  Really feel bad for Pickford who has come from Sunderland right into the center of this shambles.  Hopefully the lads will not feel the pressure of playing at home and bring a victory today.  I can see a 1-1 draw to be honest.

Really hope we win and the lads prove me wrong BUT....... looking at our team objectively we are light years away from being contenders for anything.  I am genuinely shocked that Baines and Williams are still starters.  I love a bit of Gana and Davies in the center at least they will fight for the ball.  Mirallas should have been sold already.  Rooney is done and it was a clever piece of marketing to "bring him home" to cover over the cracks of Roms departure.  Vlasic was the only bright spark of the last few weeks (where is he).  Sig and Klassen need to get the finger out.

At most we have a team that will remain in mid-table obscurity for the foreseeable future.  Really feel bad for Pickford who has come from Sunderland right into the center of this shambles.  Hopefully the lads will not feel the pressure of playing at home and bring a victory today.  I can see a 1-1 draw to be honest.

I'd be delighted with a 1-1 draw. Comparing the two teams, they are at home, and look stronger...

We've got 3 fit centre halves and you don't think he should be in the squad. Out of interest we start with holgate and jagielka who comes on if 1 of them gets injured?
Like I said earlier wasn't aware Keane was injured. ...but still id have anyone but him ...proved way to many times to be a liability this season for poor decisions and poor passing...and I would love to be proved wrong I really would and see his form improve massively, but excuse me if I don't hold my breath .

I agree.  But Rhino wants to give Rooney every chance first, apparently, perhaps have Sigurdsson work on his form in training first.  Willing to defer to his judgment, and maybe Rooney will prove me wrong, show more discipline and come good.
True. I'm certainly not at practice during the week. I definately trust the Unsworth has the team's best interest at heart...Rooney is clearly going to score 2 today:))

Really disheartening watching this, the team grossly underestimated Leicester's effectiveness in the counterattack.

I don't think we should be having Gana and Davies playing in the same two man central midfield, they are hard working but there is a lack of positional discipline which caused Leicester to run riot in the first 30 minutes. I would take one of them off, keep Rooney in central midfield as he seems to like playing there. I don't know who to bring on, part of me wants a disciplined defensive player just to keep things stead and nullify any Leicester counterattack but the other part knows that for us to get anything out of this game we need another attacking player.

He thinks he's controlling the game from deep, but he's not in the fucking side to do that and its costing us momentum up top time and time again. Once in a while, dropping deeper to find more space is fine, but he thinks he's fucking Pirlo. He's a number 10 ffs.

The midfield has little or no cohesion, Gueye has been poor, as has Davies, Rooney ain't hiding, but is giving the ball away far too much. On the plus side Mirallas and Lennon have been bright... can't think of anyone else. Must improve massively second half or we could be getting a hiding.

Positives - we didnt lose a goal in the second half. Beni in midfield looked good. Rooney went off the pitch eventually.

Negatives - the boys at the back are too slow and just not effective anymore. Rooney was so poor in the game - I cannot believe he will start the next game after that. I lost count of how many times he lost the ball. One good pass in the whole game, otherwise it was just side to side/back/pass the buck onto someone else.

All in all, its pretty worrying, but i was happier with the effort in the second half. At least there was concerted pressure and some structure, which is a basis to start getting results.

Unfortunately he played the wrong two wingers.

Vlasic & Lookman > Mirallas & Lennon

Sigurdsson should be starting ahead of Rooney as well. With Gana and Davies in midfield then they could have done with the man who covered more ground than anyone else (Sigurdsson) last season.

Spot on.

Gana and Davies lack the positional discipline to be on their own in the centre.

I'm not worried about relegation. We have had a incredibly bad start, but this team is coming off the back of a sacking and going into Chelsea away and then Leicester away with a new manager. Both difficult fixtures.

We need to concentrate on a structure and strategy. The problem with Koeman is that he kept chopping and changing sides, strategy, formation, the squad and the starting 11. No one knew week by week whether they were playing in their favoured position, in the squad, or starting 11. They didn't know who they were competing with and didn't know how to play under him. It was all an absolute mess, and the sooner we get some structure in the squad and around the club, the sooner we will start picking up results.

People don't like change, and they definately don't like uncertainty. At least give them the latter to begin with and either give Unsworth some time or make the managerial change quickly.

Yes Martina is fucking awful. Can't defend yet some are think he can attack because he floats in a cross which finds an opposition player 99 times out of 100.

Ashley Williams has been a yard dog since he arrived and gifts a golden chance almost every match. Jagielka still has recovery pace and is much less of a liability. Keane has been fine for most of the season.

Some things which I noticed today.

I know Williams and Jags are old but they were rarely troubled today by any of their attackers and I thought they contained them pretty well. Both the goals weren't their fault.

Gana and Davies are a disaster which has been mentioned before as they both lack positional sense and we looked better defensively when Beni came in the mix. I think one of Beni or big Morgs has to start every game and I think we miss someone like Barry in this team.

Taking off Lennon and Mirallas and replacing them with central players was bizarre and devoided us of any shape in the 2nd half. Even though we pressed them hard, we just didn't know what to do with the ball or create something which would put their defence under pressure. We just lack players in the middle of the park who could bring other players in the game like Arteta or Pienaar, even Barkley did a better job than our current players.

With the players we have with us, we just cannot afford to go behind as we don't have enough quality to break open any kind of defence. So I think we should ensure that we keep our defence tight and then hope that the game is more open at the other end for our attackers to do something about it. It's pretty much game over for us the time we go behind.

Rhino HAS to pack the midfield, it's got to be ugly out there.  If we concede a goal in the first half we are instantly battling for a point at best.

For me the subs worked, made us less open and gave us a foothold in the game with a narrow diamond. We controlled the ball better and didn't get caught on the break as much.

The starting lineup was the issue.

Which is exactly why it was the starting lineup being too open that cost us, not the subs. You can't give a team who excel on the counter a 2-0 lead.

At least with the 4-4-2 diamond, we protected the space in front of our back 4, where they were killing us and had 2 strikers in the box to occupy them more. It was a sound tactical switch, but a bad initial setup.

How can you categorically say it would've been any different if we started with that formation? They dropped down about 30% in the second half with regards to tempo as they new it was won and probably still had the better chances

Don't know. Surely at 2 nil we can't opt to take attacking players off and be more solid. At 0-0 the line up was wrong and at 2-0 the line up was wrong. The 2-0 line up at nil nil would be fine but both were crap for the situation we were in

But the 4-4-2 was not tested in as competitive a manner as the starting line up. It is by no means proof that 4-4-2 would have been the difference between victory and defeat today. We could not put two passes together and made individual mistakes all over the pitch.

It's never that simple. Sometimes taking a forward or wide player off for a midfielder gets you more of the ball, and you become more attacking and create more chances.

If we'd stayed as open as we were 1st half, we could lost that 5-0. You might say 'what does it matter?' but it does matter. He was trying to get us control of the midfield and get another striker in the box in the hope that we scored next and made a game of it. It was a good decision, in my opinion and worked. Unfortunately one of our strikers is a young lad struggling a bit and the other is a loose cannon with very little technical ability.

As bad as things seem I really think we're a centre forward away from having a decent team. There are flaws, but we have no out ball or pose any threat, this is in theory freeing up extra players against us. When we had lukaku he would occupy 3 or 4 defenders at a time whereas now they're almost happy to go 1 on 1, were that toothless. We need to hang in there until January, get a striker, then we'll finish strong.

Don't worry about it, I get called an idiot regularly ;)

I do think pace in the forwards is important still but I think in this particular game the switch to a diamond worked.

I also get that people are feeling shit about the results, and worried about the situation and after the match a lot of people just want to vent because it's hard to watch and it hurts.

But I don't think, once things have calmed down, we should just say 'everything's shit' because there is a way out of this.

We should maybe switch to a Moyesian 451 for the time being, protect the defence better, work hard and try to graft a few results out, not just play on the front foot.

We need to build confidence before we start trying to play more expansive football.

I think DCL and/or Rooney can do that job if you drum into them that they are going to be leading the line, don't drop deep and do a bit of a thankless task for the team.

I don't mean playing garbage football either. You can play some decent stuff with a 451 but just be much more compact and not be upset if we're 0-0 in games at HT. We need wins and clean sheets to build any sort of confidence.

Leicester just sat back and coped fairly easily with our attacking. Watford might well be Unsie's last game in charge, as someone a lot better than him is needed to sort out this awful mess of a squad, and we can't afford to blunder on much longer.

Positives? - Not many, but some: Beni  exudes confidence in mid-field. He works well with Davies and Gaye. Kenny put in a decent performance after his own goal and showed his fighting spirit. The team looked more balanced when Sigs came on for Rooney. It was a clear penalty won by Lennon at a crucial time. - That could have changed the game. Good chances were created. 

Negatives? - Rooney playing in a deeper role slowed the game down and passed backwards/ sideways too much. Lennon and Kevin had off-games. The teamwork and balance was still not right. With hindsight, Lookman could have opened up more space for strikes on goal, if chosen. Dowell out on season loan banged in a hat-trick for Forrest!

Next matches: Unsy strikes the right chords on team selection and tactics and Everton blow Lyon away!

Sadly, we were more inept than I thought possible. I think the effort was there, just not the talent. We were brushed off the ball so many times by halftime I'd lost count. Davies was all over the place, covering for someone I think.....but who? Kenny was left to sink or swim and had no help from his winger at any point of the game and the OG was just one of those things....I'm in double figures for OGs, but I played for 30 years.....shit happens. Thought Jags was immense but like the rest of the defence rather ineffective..
F & Gs?    For: Pickford again, Beni did OK for a first run out, Bainesy tried hard.
               Against: just about everything else really. We let a pretty average team look good and it's a long way back from here boys and girls. :-[

Koeman got a season to get over the mess supposedly left him by Martinez . Unsworth may well have no fucking chance if that's the marker .As much as people decry Rooney he is the only footballing brain in the whole team . Tries to do more than his legs allow for really . Hard for a Manager to curb his inbuilt desire to be everywhere which in a side as poor as this creates problems with positional discipline . Thought yesterday was better but even though I would be behind him I think the mess he has been left is too much for him at this stage of his learning curve . I would sooner see someone come in and him be made assistant . 2 away games are not enough to judge him on and the crowd at Goodison will give the team the lift they need to get 3 points and a lift in confidence .

Only a fool would suggest that Unsworth should have sorted it all out in 2 weeks and nobody has said that. However the task looks monumental with nobody except Rooney with any scoring ability, veterans struggling all over, and goals leaking at the back. I believe it will take more than Unsie's optimism, bright smiles and jokes to turn round this half of the season  to prevent the second half becoming a scramble to avoid relegation. Unfortunately he did his case no good at all with that first half selection and formation at Leicester. Ony Kenwright can decide whether to take a big risk for the next 2 months with Unsworth, or go for some probably grim alternative bugger who can shore up a defence. If the existing players are incapable of scoring goals, then play not to concede any. There are one or two managers about who could probably do that, unpopular choices though they might be.
