Technically but it's hardly ambitious decisive passing. He just squared it. Richarlison had a shitty shot and the keeper completely missed it with his arms. He's not really overly ambitious or creative. Him and sigurdsson are a horrible combination

Nope. He passed it forward into Richarlison who was in the hole. I’m not being pedantic, but people are just saying things for the sake of it and it’s doin my head in.

The chemistry isn’t right in he middle, that’s for sure. We’re not a unit and we’re not often cutting through teams.

So it goes to the fullback that’s in an advanced position, which is OK when it’s Digne but Coleman is weak as piss going forward these days.

We haven’t got a centre forward who holds it up brilliantly or works the channels.

So we’re handicapped with our only major threat coming from the left, or Sigurdson coming finding space on the edge of the area.

Silva needs to find a threat from somewhere else, we’re too predictable at the moment.

100% needs to acknowledge he or his coaches are shite at defensive set-piece tactics and bring in an expert.

I felt confident defending set-pieces yesterday, mainly down to the leap Kurt Zouma has. Not human.

We played a lot of long balls yesterday too, which worked very well. Arsenal didn’t have an answer for it.

Listening to radio phone ins last couple of weeks 606/talksport -  presenters were asking what has happened at everton why are we winning more games..........they could not come up with an answer
I thinks its fairly obvious surely - we get the ball up to the last third very quickly now - pickford now nine times out of ten will go more direct - passes the ball to sig/ dcl straightaway - rather than pass the ball sideways from the back
its a more direct way of playing and gets results and we are creating chances immediately rather than offering a slow build up from the back and petering out to nothing or having to start again
quicker pace and more movement in last third of the pitch......would you agree?

Yeah we’re definitely more direct, it suits us with DCL. As brap says though, we need an additional plan for the lesser teams next season, because they’re more equipped to deal with the direct plays.

I don't consider allardyce's time here as a tenure of management, someone was just keeping the engine ticking over so it didn't seize up entirely.

That entire situation was ridiculous and it all came from Steve Walsh. One of Moshiri’s worst decisions.

I get the need to hyper-analyse, and I know people have concerns, but I still think it's OTT. We play well and beat Lincoln and Wolves this week, and all of this stuff goes out of the window, until the next defeat and mass existential crisis.
Yep true, if we beat Wolves especially then things will look rosy again. He has some work to do with the midfield though, the Gbamin injury has made things really messy.

Think its a new tweak seems to have come about maybe end of villa game / midweek?

Sigurdsson is pulling deeper or wider rather than standing on the edge of the box.

Not sure what's allowing him to do it structurally or if he's just doing it, but it worked well today I think.
He's only done it since Iwobi and Kean have made the starting lineup. Could be a coincidence or could be because they're more of a goal threat than Bernard and DCL.

We play Bournemouth at Goodison today instead of down there, we win. That's a dead cert.

So we can talk performances all day, do this better do that better, play him there etc, but it's all about the team's mentality. It's all on Silva I'm afraid, he needs to find a solution away from home.

It could change as the season goes on, but as it stands now we look like a team that's spent a lot of money to stand still.
