It's ok, it's all the players faults.

Not sure on the 'Will Keane' comment, whether that's a BBC typo or he genuinely called him that.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce speaking to MOTD:

On the goal: Itís only our fault. It couldíve been avoided quite easily. There was hesitation between Wayne Rooney and Cuco Martina in the build up to the goal, and if you give Troy Deeney that much room in the box, he generally he scores.

On the result: It looked like a well-deserved draw, so bitterly disappointing result. In the final third we didnít cause them any problems.

When you get chances like Will Keaneís from three yards out and you donít score you know itís not your day.

On their performance: The players have to take more responsibility and say to themselves ĎIf we canít win, donít lose the gameí. And it wasnít great play from Watford for the goal, it was our poor defending. We let Watford get at us and they full capitalised.

ĎIf we canít win, donít lose the game.í

And this sums him up.

It is precisely because we donít pressure teams, or open them up, and donít try to win games, that many of them feel safe to have a go at us because we pose them very little threat if they lose possession when pouring forward.
Dignity does not consist in possessing honours, but in deserving them
