Behave.  I don't see anything wrong with what Moyes said.  It was a very even game.  Basically each team had one clear chance.  Kuyt scored theirs and Cahill missed ours.

I don't know what Moyes could have done differently with his subs.  Perhaps bringing Coleman on for Fellaini and pushing Neville into midfield?  It might have given Donovan more support, but it's a big call to bring someone so inexperienced on over our best player in Arteta.  Even when he's so short of fitness.

As Moyes said, we just didn't have the quality in the final third to create the goalscoring opportunities we needed.  Other than that we played okay.

Liverpool are very good at shutting games down and compressing the play.  When we went a goal down it was always going to be a massive struggle to get back into it.

As for you, Murf 668, your Everton shirt can hardly wait.

If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.  Checkmate!

Yeah, it was even. Oh except the part about them having 10 men for 60 minutes. The match should not have been even, we should have twatted them. In fact, they had MORE possession and MORE shots. With LESS men. See my beef?

Not really.  It doesn't necessarily work that way in practice that when a team has ten men then they are going to get rolled over.

We didn't create enough chances because they got men behind the ball and defended well.  Up until the goal went in, I thought we were the better side.  After that, I knew we were in trouble because they would shut the game down and leave us no space to play in.  So it proved.

My biggest problem is that the players seemed to have the stuffing knocked out of them by the goal.  Like they didn't believe they could get it back.

If it had been us who had the man sent off, you can be assured we would have lost by 3 or 4 today.

Moyes cannot make positive tactical changes to save his life. He is too cautious. Coleman for fellaini and we could have had a right go. Vaughan should have been on early in the second half too. I know he wasn't even a sub, but again, daft decision to leave him out.

If Coleman had come on for Fellaini and done nothing, loads would be jumping up and down saying "Why didn't he bring our best player Arteta on?!?!?  A defender for a midfielder!  He's too cautious!"

To be honest, I don't really know what better he could have done with the subs he had.  Maybe bring Yak on earlier, but that's about it.

I don't know the situation with Vaughan.  I would have thought he'd have been included if fully fit.
