Wouldn't like to see Morgan,Walcott and Rich start together, potentially 3 missing from the off, would be happy birthday to them.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

I like the fact that we played Richarlison at right wing.

I think he's very similar to Mirallas when he plays at left wing, he just cuts back in to either take a shot or pass which becomes very easy to read. He doesn't have dribbling skills to just cut in and create that extra bit of space and his left foot isn't the best so he doesn't like to take it wide and try to put a cross in. This used to limit his game.

At right wing, he's more likely to use his pace to get by the wings and put in a cross. He might score lesser but I feel he'll be more effective at RW than LW.

Very deliberate the way he talked about atmosphere before and after the match.

Shows that the atmosphere does make a difference to this group of players.

Particularly about acknowledging won’t be that like for every fixture but should be “something” for most games.

It makes a difference to every player.

He was using it to try to cover our complete lack of belief and tactical fluency though. It worked, to an extent.

It’s the games that aren’t fuelled by a typical, ale fuelled derby atmosphere that he has to prove his worth though.

Think that he was talking about it before was that he wanted to avoid the silence/ negativity that permeates so many matches (often in ones where we’re better/ have more chances than today).

Yes I know that but having not managed a derby at Goodison it was a given really that we were going to get a different atmosphere than normal.

We always pull high intensity out of the bag in these games. We generally need what goes on out on the pitch to generate the atmosphere in the other games though.

Maybe some flags will help?

Back to the old chicken and the egg argument. Does the team need to play in a manor to GET the fans noisy.

On another note, set plays seems to be getting better.

Though this could change instantly.

Defo winning more second balls when it drops in the box.

That 17 days off probably helped a fair bit, in terms of giving time to coach and drill it.

They do seem to be getting better at every bit of defending ....but I'm sure the two DM's is helping too ...an extra defensive brain in there .

Hope it continues .

Set plays are better because we aren't giving away stupid freekicks. We are actually a good defensive team in open play.

We have conceded less goals from open play than Man Utd and Arsenal, but the most in the league by set pieces. It stands to reason that if we can sort this out, we will be in a very good place next season.

Offensively, we have scored the 7th most from open play, with the only teams ahead of us being the top 6. Not too bad.
