Seeing as we're back round to discussing who did or didn't ask/get approached by another club to go on loan and other riveting conversations like how long Allardyce will be here, let's have a matchday thread.  :)

Coleman has clearly been rushed back.



I think he was ill was for one game he missed. It's pretty common for a player to struggle with niggling injuries when they come back from a long lay off.

Haha, the sad cunt's ready to defend a 0-0 and now has to change the subs to try and get a draw. Fucking dinosaur.

And there we are lads and Lizz, that's as adventurous as Allardyce gets away to Watford, waving Pickford up the park in the 93rd minute for a fucking corner. Fucking tube!

It's ok, it's all the players faults.

Not sure on the 'Will Keane' comment, whether that's a BBC typo or he genuinely called him that.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce speaking to MOTD:

On the goal: Itís only our fault. It couldíve been avoided quite easily. There was hesitation between Wayne Rooney and Cuco Martina in the build up to the goal, and if you give Troy Deeney that much room in the box, he generally he scores.

On the result: It looked like a well-deserved draw, so bitterly disappointing result. In the final third we didnít cause them any problems.

When you get chances like Will Keaneís from three yards out and you donít score you know itís not your day.

On their performance: The players have to take more responsibility and say to themselves ĎIf we canít win, donít lose the gameí. And it wasnít great play from Watford for the goal, it was our poor defending. We let Watford get at us and they full capitalised.

ĎIf we canít win, donít lose the game.í

And this sums him up.

It is precisely because we donít pressure teams, or open them up, and donít try to win games, that many of them feel safe to have a go at us because we pose them very little threat if they lose possession when pouring forward.

He'd decided about the 75th minute we couldn't win, that's why he was looking to make the defensive changes. Any manager with a bit of bollocks would have gone after them, we weren't great but they were shite as well and maybe with a bit of ambition we could have won.

Did he say Will Keane or is that a typo?

That's what I said, not sure if he said that or it's a typo?

He MUST know his players names, surely to god

What did he call Coleman once, wasn't it something daft like Stephen Coleman?

Wasnít he also planning to bring on bolassie?

Which isnít a decision I agree with, coz Bolasie is shite, but it shows attacking intent.

Was only a few weeks ago, canít remember the game, but Sam made a seemingly defensive sub, everyone went mental, and we scored 60 seconds later with the sub being instrumental.

Sometimes just chucking on more and more forward players a la Martinez isnít actually the best way to win a game.

I think his comments after the game where he says "if you can't win the game, make sure you don't lose it" and the fact he then changed his mind about the sub after they scored means he was definitely looking to defend the point.
