Howard- 5. Commanded his box well enough but was criminal on the goal conceded.Neville- 5. No creativity from his side at all. Kept playing it into Donovan with a man up his arse where he couldn't do anything. Predictable and stunted our rhythm.Heitinga- 7. Did well at centre-half and didn't really looked troubled at all. Deserves a 7 just for squaring up to Steven G.Distin- 5. Liking him less and less if I'm honest. That N'Gog chance where Osman slid in on him in the first half was down to Distin not putting the ball out and opting to hit it across the pitch.Baines- 5. Didn't do much really bar the free kick.Donovan- 7. One of the brighter lights.Fellaini- 6. Did well when he was on but not long enough to judge. I think I'm right in saying Felli' stands where Kuyt did on the goal?Osman- 5. Not good enough.Pienaar- 4. Awful.Cahill- 6. Tried, showed endeavour, but should have scored.Saha- 6. Tried and worked but never had any service as per usual. Clearly the best striker on the books.Arteta- 8. Our man of the match, shame when he had the ball the others just looked at him as if he was going to magic-wand a goal.Anichebe- 5. Should have scored.Yakubu- 6. Looks fucked, one good shot.Both Anichebe and Yakubu never had the service, mind.
Donovan was arguably our best player today mate. His work-rate is brilliant and that run where he put Insua on toast you wouldn't see from any other Everton player. In terms of quality, he's no better than most in our team, but he offers something different.And I honestly don't get what this Saha things about. I don't know what more he could've done today with the service he was given. Just shit, pointless long balls hoofed up to him and even if he wins it, Cahill seldom gets in front of him. What more can you ask of the lad? He was tracking back, sliding in and putting himself about...As for Distin, agreed shit. I'd prefer Sendy' and Yobo to him now. Doesn't look a very good buy at that price. Looking more like a flop if I'm honest.
Distin screams panic buy, fuck knows how he's a professional footballer without the ability to kick at all with his weaker foot.I wasn't getting at Donovan. I know he was one of the only ones arsed today. He's never gonna be anything more than a decent player though for us.
2 for everyone except Donovan and Heitinga, oh and 1 for Neville.
Howard 5 - Worst game in recent memory for him.Neville 4 - Slow. Stupidly slow. He kept getting the ball and on the rare ocassion he made a forward pass, it took him 10 seconds too long to make it.Heitinga 6 - Bar the one early incident with Ngog, Heitinga has a good game.Distin 6 - Didn't really put a foot wrong.Baines 6 - Lots of effort, good defensively and a decent free kick shot.Pienaar 4 - I only just realised he got sent off... Fuck... Awful game and now we're without him in the hardest month of football in years.Fellaini 5 - Didn't get much of a chance, hope he's okay.Osman 5 - Didn't realy notice him doing much.Donovan 7 - Very positive and that run late on was magical.Cahill 6 - Lots of effort and almost scored.Saha 5 - Did not look like a player who just signed a new deal...Subs:Arteta 6 - He played exactly like I thought he would considering he was not match-ready -- not as good as he is.Anichebe 5 - Fucking idiotic hesitance cost us the last chance to grab something from the game.Yak 6 - Looked bored and tired, but a great shot and some good hold up play.Manager ratingMoyes 4 - None of the subs made any sense to me. Bily? Coleman? We needed someone to inspire us. An unfit Arteta, lazy Yakubu and unfit and never inspiring Anichebe were nonsensical subs.
Can't agree with them mate. I just don't get why people are so hard on Saha after games like that. He tried hard enough but he isn't superman, christ!
I thought Distin was ok. He did better than I expected, considering he's had so many injuries.Saha played ok, but I stand by what I said. He didn't look happy or energetic, like a player who has just signed a new contract should.
He did more than most on that field today with very little service. And he clapped the fans on the way off.
I wasn't insulting him off the pitch. And maybe he did more than most, but that isn't saying anything. I gave him a 5, deal with it. Why does he warrant a 6? He did nothing particularly well.
Fair enough, no need to get pissy. Okay, he deserves a 5. Why does Distin deserve a 6 then? That's what I don't get. He was bullied by David NGog today and completely ran ragged.
