A good transfer window will help solve a great deal of problems. Hope we can get one.

We have. Maybe this time we'll get it right?

In Jan we need a striker, a wide player, a center back and a left back.

Get those, we have more balance and should have a better second half of the season. May even have a shot at Europe.

A manager who understands tactics would be a good start.

Unsworth looked lost again, we didnít adapt to the deteriorating pitch which Palace did.

Didnít adapt the formation to pick up Townsend or zaha.

Team selection garbage, itís clear as mud Arron Lennon is average at best so why keep picking him when he offers so little.

Back to kids football for Unsy, with no pressure, where your all mates, where you can take it easy and tactics and results donít actually matter.

In a team so desperately lacking quality, it is outrageous not to play Rooney.

Shows how little knowledge of the game you actually have, Lennon may be average but he does something very important for a wing player, covers the right back which, in case you haven't noticed, is being currently occupied by an inexperienced kid. That is why he has been part of the team recently. I had no issues with the selection apart from the selection of Morgan S given the recent rumors and the fact Unsy himself admitted after the game he was dealing with an injury

I take it you were nowhere near Goodison then for the Watford game? Wayne was embarrassingly bad and got hauled off by Unsie. Hardly surprising he was not selected today don't you think?

He's had much less time, got more out of the team than Koeman, who's an experienced manager, used to big squad changes. I think the position he's taken over and with board adding to huge problems, its made the very difficult, near impossible.

I think time will show he's a better manager than most managers we're linked with, Silva, Dyche etc.

Unsworth played absolutely the correct team against Palace, probably barring Lookman. He provided a good solid midfield to protect a defence that has now conceded the joint most goals in the PL.

Lennon also had to play to protect Kenny (who actually did very well) against Zaha's pace.

All in all, I was pleased with the resolve the squad showed, and we had chances to win the game in the second half (DCL's sticks out).

Anyone who says Rooney should have played clearly hasn't watched this season's football closely enough. He has been absolutely useless apart from a couple of goals from 25 yards. He gives the ball away more than any other player, no pace, barely any creativity, and not as much energy as Siggy. He just isn't that good anymore and needs to be shipped onto China/MLS/AN Other in the summer.

ADDITION - Also, 2-2 against a side away from home with a passionate crowd, who has a new manager and some good players is really not a bad result at all, especially playing the way we are. Unbeaten now in 2 whole games! Don't forget the impact that this has on confident building in the squad.

I hate saying this but this . Some proper fucking cretins gave Koeman and his shit football a season of excuses and given this that and the other and we will be in the 4 . After 5 games some of the same gobshites are writing off a stand in Manager who has arguably inherited a far worse team than the one Koeman inherited . Well for all those who lauded all our quality signings time to eat shite for the rest of the season because there is no way on earth we are splashing out in the next window . For that reason alone it is better to have someone who knows the club and the players at it and given a few games will turn it round . Big Sam would be counting his 'keep us up bonus' already having got 4 points from the same games as Unsworth .

Wouldn't surprise me if he got a start against Atalanta then on the bench against Southampton.

I'd be interested to know if people would be more impressed by winning title with Olympiacos, Celtic or our U23s.

Understand a lot of people think U23s doesn't count as real football, but find it a bit bizarre how little appreciation there is for what he did with U23s
