When was that?

They beat 2-1 or 3-1 a couple of years ago.

Jelavic scored a lovely goal i think

87-88, if I recall correctly.

There were two positives from today's game.

1.  It's Over.
2.  The ref played a blinder.

Now you know why Sam set us up to defend.

Any other style our players get exposed and ship goals ...

And we shipped goals under him too.

And Keane really is dreadful. Think we made all our signings last season without any proper scouting

None of Sigurdsson, Gueye or Schneiderlin offered anything whatsoever to the game.

Silva sides concede a lot of goals.

We have a very poor group of CB's

Mori has been sold, Holgate aint ready, Jags is too old, Keane is plain shite and Williams.....

Not just Mina we need 2 CB's in my opinion.
I thought we could get away with 1 but no way.....we need 2 decent centre backs like now. Keane is as bad as Klassen....

Set us up to defend because that's all he's been capable of doing throughout his career, mate.

Was Walsh and Koeman’s remit to assemble the slowest side in the EPL?

If it was, mission accomplished.

Back to this, though: if most of us accept that part of Martinez’ early success was down to inheriting an extremely well-drilled side that he then inspired and liberated, by the same token we should expect Silva to struggle early on with a team suffering from the negative, flabby hangover of the previous regime.

Pickford spraying balls to the flanks makes this better

If Silva has a plan it is harder to crack than the DaVinci Code .I don't see where he is going with this lot .All my life I have loved EVERTON but I have no idea what comes next .They (Rennes) exploited so many weaknesses today ,as said before the premier sides will lap this up .The main worry for me is that he seems to have settled on a team and they have very little idea or creativity ,they seem to have no plan to use our best striker ( he barely got a  kick) and we have no nouse in midfield .I feel sorry for all the season ticket holders .

First time i can remember i can say im happy we got beat there... maybe just maybe it might make people get their fingers  outta their arse and sort out that back line.  No pace at all....

The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool


The few droplets of water left in my half full glass reckon that realistically, if we secure Digne, then we are only two centre backs and a midfield general away from a team that can challenge for 6th or 7th.
