Haha didnít have a fucking clue who was up there squaring it to Gylfi

I was like, I have no idea if that is McCarthy or Schneiderlin b/c it did not look like either.

Lookman has been pretty decent so far. Did everything right for the goal and otherwise has been working very hard on both sides of the ball.

Even if he stayed, I don't think he is saving that. Going bottom corner.

Lookman earning himself some more time today at least.

First one to truly cost us a goal wasn't it?

Pretty sure that was going in anyways. Mistake still, but don't think he was saving it had he stayed put.

Bugger. Still that equalizer was the first moment of true Everton-related joy I have experienced in a while. I watch for those moments.

Well

Sigi getting better, kenny a great player in the making, keep holgate in the team for the rest of the year, lookman out on loan

The future is bright guys, couple of additions and we aren't half bad!

Why should Lookman go out on loan? Crazy suggestion in my view, especially after this match, where he was very good -- probably his most complete performance for us so far.

This is true. We whiffed hard on the Williams and Keane signings. Like whoever sanctioned the deals gave no consideration to tactical fit.

Keane/Williams would be a good pairing for a team with no ambition of leaving its own penalty area. But defending in space... they're not so good.

I am hoping Keane can still come good. England seems to like him, and for all the shit the national team gets, they typically can't actually be described as a team that has "no ambition of leaving its own penalty area."

Holgate, besides his moments of rashness today, might be catching up to Jags, who has become a bit more mistake prone in his old age.

Holgate is my #1 has-to-start CB right now. He'll make mistakes because he's young, but he's quick, calm with the ball at his feet, and does a better job passing forward from deep than any of our midfielders (except Rooney).

I think Keane's passing is interesting but I worry about his lack of pace. It's not necessarily a deal breaker but it requires... something, whether it be better positioning or a system that does a better job of protecting him.

We have yet to see a Keane and Holgate pairing when playing 4 at the back; right? Understand the desire to pair each with the more experienced Jags and Williams, but Holgate's quickness might help compensate for Keane's weaknesses, and it would be great to have the two of them passing out of the back. Hope to see the parring tried at some point this season.
