Okay to switch things up a bit from all the doom and gloom...

We've had a really tough opening set of fixtures.
We have signed a number of players who need to adapt.
Pretty much all of our signings are capable of more. There is no way Pickford, Keane, Sandro, Sigurdsson and Klaassen aren't much better than they have shown so far for a start.
The upcoming games should get us some points on the board.
We are still in Europe.
We've still got potentially three first teamers to come back at some point.

There's other things but let's not push it. What say you? Is it really that terrible?

For me there aren't too many of these but that doesn't mean the situation should be met with panic and chaotic decision making.

Work hard in training and get a win in midweek with hopefully a bit of football sprinkled in. At least we did see tiny bits of passing football today.

Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Shocking how poor several of the new signings are inc Schneiderlin.

I wouldn't have expected much more than 6 pts so far with these fixtures, but the manner in which we are capitulating... what are we score line wise in the last 5 matches? Guessing 1-14? Shocking.

But it is true that things could quickly recover... how are we going to score against Burnley though?  These guys are a tough nut to crack

I think this is our bottom for the season.

(If we lose our next one, I will be retroactively erasing this post.) :titanic:

A set piece maybe? When you are struggling you just need that one bit of luck. Schneiderlin has not been a poor signing, he's one of a number to start the season poorly, I thought he looked better today. The signings can't be written off as poor yet and we know Sigurdsson and Keane are definitely capable of more in the Premier League.

First 10 minutes aside, thought we were OK today, and should really have been at worst level.  They looked poor, and we looked the more likely until Williams completely fucked us over.

Didn't watch today so can't comment on the game. The reality is we are probably not very good but there's also 12-13 teams who are varying degrees worse. It's dull. We won't progress towards the 6 above us but nor is the world falling in

I do think koeman and Walsh as a partnership is a massive issue. Clearly something in that relationship doesn't work.

We'll be fine though. We'll continue being Everton. The best of the sides who aren't right good

They maybe capable of better, but our manager and the formation style he utilises does not do us any favors.

dont know if they can be better when the instructions that Koeman is telling them aren't being followed through, not sure if this is a translation errors or players not caring.
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

It was our best performance of the season and we lost 4-0. It actually hurts more than if we had not even tried.

I think we will be ok, but individual errors from the players and dumb subs from the manager have to stop. I'm at the point where I'm not bothered if Koeman goes and I always said I'd give until the end of the year before making the call.

I think we need to focus on one of our playmakers to be the core of the side, and it shouldn't be Sig yet. It's clear he is struggling due to having no pre-season, so a line up similar to today where we are at least more solid (I know we still conceded 4). That was until he decided to take off Davies and Gana and we effectively had Shcneiderlin and the back 5 and a gap to the front 6 which I think was the key to the defeat. Sandro, Sig, DCL, and Mirallas in front of the rest meant we were wide open in the middle. That's what cost us.

Was Koeman wearing a jersey?
He is a Moyes dressed up in Ancelotti clothes.

Aw come on EC... I wish I had a reason to care about the rs - like we're both fighting for 4th and for champs lge, or we're both in the hat for FA Cup semis.

Miles from them at the moment 😞
