Why would he bring on Pienaar if there's a chance he'd then have to sub the sub? That would be another complete waste of a substitution.

I understand the risk involved, but Pienaar can create scoring chances.  More likely than any other bench options.  We need three points here, so I am willing to go high risk, high reward.  You can't manage in fear of the downside, if the percentages warrant aggression.

I also accept that the international break will inevitably cause some dropoff in play, just not this much.

George Harrison would take offence.

You must have the American "Extra Time" feed.  I have the same here, it's surreal.

McCarthy is this team "straight man" - the calming influence we need to balance RM's style of play.  It's ridiculous how perfect of a fit he is.  Much more so than Felli was.

Osman has had a horrific start to the second half.

They already look a bit more tired for me. Not closing the ball down as much.

Yeah they aren't pressing quite as much. Giving us more time on the ball.

As poor as we've been, I still prefer alot of what I'm seeing to the Moyes stuff last season.
Life as an Evertonian isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Please Roberto...please take Osman off. This style of football leaves him as a passenger in most games, both in attack and defensively.
