It was a good result for the lynch mob who are out in force as expected. The result was never in question before a ball was kicked. You can't expect 2nd/3rd rate players like McCarthy, Gueye, Cuco, and green rookies like Holgate and Kenny to cope with Tottenham. Add that to an over the hill Jags and a half fit Bolassie, plus  a bench full of dross and there was no chance.  Cenk was a highlight. The worst part was the collapse in morale, although it must be difficult to play against a team 10 times better than you.  Allardyce was brought in to retrieve a near wrecked playing squad. He should still get us another 13 points to stay up. After  that who knows?  All those who wanted Silva, Unsie, Koeman back and a variety of known and half known managers from overseas will have their say. All would struggle with the crap and unfit players we have available.

Fair enough. Playing Sigurdsson and Rooney together was a mistake. Vlasic would have been better getting back to cover Cuco.  The real underlying blame lies with terrible recruitment, especially the likes of Sandro and Klassen who do not feature at all, the demise of Baines and the long term loss of Coleman. We will stay up.

It wasn't the wisest statement to make by the manager that's for sure. On the other hand can you imagine the likes of regular choices Lennon, McCarthy, DCL, Gueye, Siggy (playing left back), Davies, Bolassie etc etc getting more than one shot at the goal in any period of 3 months? Those are the players we are lumbered with. You have to be a fantasist to imagine a shot from outside the box from Everton. Our only chances come from corner kicks, just like WBA who we play next.  Now if he stopped playing Siggy as a cover for Cuco then who knows? We might see a few shots from him. Then there is Cenk. I can't see any great change this side of May in the goalscoring department. The Sandro fans have been quiet for a while. Maybe there is a glimmer of hope from him alongside Cenk. Just get the boring 13 points and regroup.
