Does anyone know how I would go about getting tickets with the away fans for the Brighton away game on 29th December. I live in Brighton and am not a season ticket holder, nor do I regularly attend either home or away games. I've been up to Goodison once this season so far and am travelling up on the 24th for the Cardiff game. I can grab a ticket in with the home fans from 9am tomorrow (I think) but would rather be surrounded by the travelling blues. Anyone able to buy tickets but doesn't want to go? Any other way to secure tickets?

Years ago my mate who also supported Everton lived in Southampton. He used to get tickets via ESCLA. You could try them.

Made up for Keane thus season. Had to take a fair bit of flack for last season's performances, but has come back stronger. Been thinking though, last season he was often stuck in no man's land, due to having his own position to cover, helping out Cuco on the left and having to try and mop up after Williams pace was exposed. This year, with better defenders around him, he's starting to look like what we thought we'd originally bought.

{Ed025's Note - very much so kingo..

Not only Keane but all the backs are now settled in, even Pickford has turned it round it says a lot when as good as what they are we've got Baines and Jags on the bench it's just a shame we've got no one this weekend.

Who do we pick next match that is the quandry. Keane does not deserve it but I would like to see Zouma and Mina or how about a three man defence of Keane Mina and Zouma. Glad I am not the coach/ manager.

billscrocodiletears, I have been asking that very same question. Oh what a dilema. isn't it just awful that we now have this problem of who to pick because all the others are playing so well. rather than last season when I seriously considered getting my one legged Gran a crutch to see if she was better than some of our squad!

That’s why managers get big bucks. Tough decision to make.

If we can start going to the top teams and come away with something, then in my book that's a big improvement on last season, we are now a very good team, we still need some strengthening, but it's all looking positive, Saturdays are something to look forward to again.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with all of that simon..

If anyone has any doubts. headline on SkySports: Gylfi Siggurdson was pictured leaving Stamford Bridge with his foot in a cast after the star picked up an unknown knock! . seriously. and I am not joking!

{Ed025's Note - lets hope thats just precautionary degsy..

Red card tackle all the way even worse when you slow it down and also deliberate in my view the bloke was miffed.

My comment was referring to Sky Sports stating an "unknown knock". Are their reporters deaf as well as blind?

They weren’t watching their own coverage obviously. Just a bunch of muppets to be honest.

It was very pleasing to see Silva get such a resilient defensively solid performance from the team. We are playing much better attacking attractive fluid football but this part of the game is important. I've read posts and replies on here and agree that a few tweaks are needed with Walcott probably losing his place and being in need of a striker. Great performance. The game was a bit dark tbh.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Nov 2018 10:24:11
The team is developing into Silva's team. Players are being replaced one by one. It is quite an achievement to think that we started off with 5 new signings of whom I think 4 were injured? We started the season playing attractive football but were leaking goals. That included a defence that was already here. ie Baines, Coleman, Holegate and Keane. From that only Keane and Coleman remain. I suspect Zouma may replace Keane too? Mina was brought in to add height and stability to a leaking defence and against Hazard etc performed very well I thought. He should also chip in with goals from set pieces. Something we have lacked. As long as we can keep Siggy fit and playing to this standard and keep the spine of the team similar we should climb at least a few places.

{Ed025's Note - at the moment keane deserves his place in the side degsy, we have 3 players who look very good at the moment at CB which is a million miles from where we were last season, and we still have ashley williams to come back (hahaha), if we can get a quality goalscorer and make gomes permanent then for me we are good to go mate, but im very happy the way we are progressing and its very enjoyable being a blue at the moment..

I agree. It’s going to be tough keeping Kenny, Baines, Davies, Dowell, JMac, Scinderlin, lookman, naisse, DCL, Toson happy however
We have a squad for Europe - this would aid rotation - hopefully the players can see that.

Nice decisions to have though.

Message for Big Sam - you can be defensively solid and well organised without playing huff it football. Appreciate your help last season but we want more and are capable of it. Just stop moaning about the past and enjoy your retirement/ next payday.

Jorginho should've got a straight red.
Thought so today and just watched it again on MOTD and it was definitely a red card.
Alonso was lucky to still be on the pitch and K Friend should not referee a big game ever again.
It's a compliment to us though that Chelsea resorted to kicking us off the pitch rather than playing.
The protection hazzard is receiving is diabolical. Poor finishing and control let us down today and I thought we were well capable of getting 3 points.
Massive improvement and I think this game will be a turning point for us.
Defensively we were the best I've seen in a long long time. I still think there is something missing, possibly the need to drop Walcott and bring in lookman for a few games.
Walcott was ineffective and his lack of control let us down a few times today.
Mina was faultless apart from the morrata incident.
I thought Gomes disappeared for a while but I know he isn't fully fit same as Bernard who I thought was unlucky not to score and then he totally messed up later on but I think he could do a job more central.
Richarlison looked a bit lost but I also think we didn't look as fluid going forward.
I'm happy because the last few fixtures at Chelsea have been embarrassing so for me this is excellent progress.
This is just my personal opinion and overall I am happy but still feel like we could've took all 3 points today.

12 Nov 2018 19:46:15
If K Friend doesn't ref a match again then we would have to put up with J Moss even more. And that is a more worrying thought.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 18:44:21
Really impressed with the team today. It's a bit much to expect us to go away to teams like Chelsea and dominate but not many keep a clean sheet there. Next game we should win, while Bournemouth and Watford play Arsenal and reds. Utd play Palace: just hope Zaha can do them. We should be up to 6th or 7th after the next round of games.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 20:09:28
Was at the game today but as usual I had to make do with a home ticket. Thought we did really well, we frustrated out of them and in the main suppressed their goal threats. In the Matthew Harding stand the Chelski hardcore were absolutely screwing, ladies using the F Word, not a good word to say about Morata or Barkley, sheer frustration and anger around me and I couldn’t help but smile. A proud smile. Thought Keane and Mina looked strong and Gueye got stuck in all over the field.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 21:47:34
I think that performance today sent out a massive message to the top 6 clubs. Ignore us at your peril. Silva has galvanised a squad in a short space of time.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 16:32:14
Okay, a point is a point and we defended well against a really good group of players, but, as far as us being a threat we didn't offer very much today imo. 7.5 / 10.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 16:53:03
Thought we played well, I saw them as being a great load of cheats.

Frustrating rnt they, its like if you dare go near Hazard the crowd scream for a foul, what a player that lad is though. An that Ruddiger is it?, what a wet wipe he is, going down for a headbut of Bernard, if i got put on my arse by someone half my size for a headbut in the stomach my father would disown me.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 17:06:34
i agree with Guernsey there. thought the ref was poor throughout and there were one or two Chelsea players lucky not to be booked for simulation. rudiger should be laughed at. rolling around the floor after the smallest player on the pitch put it up to him. a joke.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 18:28:52
Rudiger should be given a retrospective three match ban for that dopey theatrical, what a plonker.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 18:31:17
Chelsea are a top side with real quality. Alonso was outstanding to be expected. But that just shows how good we were. They’re tactics started to get a bit dark arts towards the finish due to our excellent attempts to frustrate. Ref was poor yes, but we were great at the back despite that. A little more quality up top we can nick three points in games like that.

Silva now has two weeks to decide if he should stick with Mina or go back to Zouma. My opinion is stick with Mina as he’s here permanently whereas Zouma will most probably return to Chelski.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 18:48:01
Well said mate agree wholeheartedly.

11 Nov 2018 19:54:10
Only Everton has players banned GB mate, you should know that. Some have a go at us Evertonians for playing the victim card. That being the case, how come with this rule of review of simulation able to attract a ban, that Niasse is the only player to have undergone such. It stinks.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 20:30:19
Your right there mate, all these so called top teams cheat, you only have to see Martial of Man U doing his theatrical Swan dive in our penalty box when we played them, blatant.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 16:31:45
Mina was brilliant so was Lookman when he came on, think the time is right for Theo to move over. but great game and great effort from all the lads, well done.

Agree3 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 19:58:45
I agree with you GB, but we are not the Manager or coaches. I hear good things about Lookman in training turning it on and magic feet etc! So am forced to conclude that Mr Silva is not immune from that raft of Managers that appear to have their favourites. It is human nature, I hasten to add that I am not criticising Mr Silva, just pointing out a fact. On the game today and a tough game at that, after watching Mina's performance, what a headache Mr Silva has for our next match.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Nov 2018 20:39:18
I thought Mina was superb.
