they had a chance in the first half where Coleman had come into the box to help deal with King and Fraser was left in miles of space out on the left. Lookman was just watching on not tracking back.
Whose fault though is that? Shouldn’t Keane and Zouma be enough to deal with the one CF in King so why did Coleman get dragged inside. Or why wasn’t Lookman coming back to help out. They really should have scored from that

We're at home. We shouldn't be asking our wingers to double up all the time especially not with Gana playing. Lookman needs to be kept forward, even at the expense of Sig. We need pace and quick feet up top to break and create chances.

Fed up of seeing the ball break to Sig in the centre when we have the chance to break and seeing him lay it back the way it came without so much as a glance or half turn to see what was on the other way.

Gomes got away with it a bit, but I don't think he'd have got to that kinda boiling point if not for the referee. Some decisions were truly awful.

Agree with this.

Thought our players lost their heads after seeing countless decisions go against them and the game got out of control.

Glad to see his performance was as bad as it looked at the ground.

Bit worried about Silvas substitutions and the timing of them, can't believe he waited until 78mins to make the first change, thought the game was crying out for Davies as the midfield was all over the place plus Gomes head seemed to go too, Walcott coming on was madness to me



I can't help but disagree about the bringing on, Tom Davies. He's been pretty woeful this season and wasteful in posession. those tackles he used to win, are virtually non-existent. At 1-0. Bringing Davies on would have been a gamble. I hope he succeeds here. But I think today, would have been risky.  :)

Crap weather, crap ref and pretty much a crap game but it saw us really dig in and really want a game for the first time in ages. Nobody outstanding and nobody totally shite. I thought everyone put a shift in especially after an appalling first half hour.

I enjoyed seeing players fired up, we need that and Goodison needs it. A win and a clean sheet, when your confidence is as low as ours has been it doesn't matter who the opposition is, that is a huge result. Nice to be able to face highlights and newspapers!
Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.

Is too easily bullied off the ball, would have spent a lot of time on the floor.

The definition of a baller.

Got to play him consistently and let him work through the ups and downs instead of dropping him as soon as he doesnt perform.

Sounds like he would have played/ started more over Christmas if it wasn’t for his injury.

Wasn’t great vs Lincoln in second half so I’d guess he’s on line for a run now.

Bernard was my man of the match today. Thought he was quality throughout.

Lookman, Digne and Zouma all very good.

The rest were pretty average.

Yes, Bernard is all hustle, intelligence, and class.

Lookman has similar attributes, particularly the class and intelligence, and they both have a great touch.

Game was crying out for a midfield change, probably says a lot about Silvas trust in Davies, no point having him on the bench if he can't come into a game like this with 12mins to go

My main point though is how Silva takes ages to make a change, it's not the first time it's happened this season, really lucky not to be 1 all or down to ten men before he changed it up

Digne was my sleeper vote for MoM runner up to Lookman.  Defended well, cross was brilliant but how he won a physical challenge to set it all up... key to me.

He's not thinking quickly enough, is what I believe, is his problem. He's caught on the ball, misplaces passes and tends to run around a bit when that happens. He used to run about a bit and tackle, but he's trying to get to the level of his more experienced team mates (awareness wise). This is a big season for Tom Davies. It could go either way. Yeah, he's got potential but that has to start to be good enough to get his place in the starting 11. He's a way off yet. Even for Everton, or what we're expecting to achieve.

I think the sub issue is why I was pissed off so much with the ref. Every wrong decision he made today was restricting our ability to compete. I can see why you thought Davies would be the answer, but as I mentioned, "I think it would have been a risk to bring him on". They were fairly lively at the time and the anxiety was crying out for a calm head, as well as a tackling battler. Would James McCarthy have been a bigger risk! Maybe not? He wasn't even on the bench. Still! It's a 2-0 win. And being able to watch match of the day with a smile for a change, is excellent. :)

For a little lad Bernard's work rate and effort are second to none, he works his socks off and isn't afraid to put his foot in. Gonna be amazing for us in the future
