Never mind about the game, who saw Gylfi's Mrs!? : )

Solid win tonight. so happy with Keane and Pickford, think they're going to be pivotal this season. Gueye and Schneiderlin dominated the midfield. Massive tempo change tonight and hope we take that 1st half to City on Monday. COYB!

I think if you earned £100k+ a week you could look like Quasimodo and still pull a worldie.

18 Aug 2017 06:50:23
you on about Crouchie there Gibbo :) , I always remember on soccer am I think it was, the presenter asked him what he would be if he wasnt a footballer, he said a virgin ha ha.

Great performance tonight even though we took are foot off the gas in second half RK will know it will get better but he must be happy about how well they have settled, I mean that's 5/ 6 new signings that are in the first team, definitely need a striker.
Klassen starting to get into it more and I always thought he will need the most time and a bit of patience with him.
Mirallas looked good tonight and I'm almost expecting him to be a new signing he has to show koeman he was right to keep him part of his plans.
I hope we go too Man City with positive attitude, I'm sure we will but I'm looking forward to those big games where although I was not expecting wins we mostly bottled games but there's winners in this side and young players who want to be winners.

I have to say. Pickford's distribution is amazing!

18 Aug 2017 02:41:53
Watched it in a boozer in Lisbon thought they're starting to gel really well much better tempo, looking good.

18 Aug 2017 06:06:00
Great performance and some really good football played. ( puts tin hat on ) The only issue I can see is that we seemed to lose control of the midfield when we brought besic on, where as normally it would have been Gaz barry to quite things down. Besic not up to it for me but on the whole a great performance.

18 Aug 2017 06:29:26
Klaasan is becoming vital in that midfield. He keeps the ball moving and has great awareness. Everything good went through him tonight and it was no surprise we dropped off when he came off.

Looking forward to city.

Absolute madness! . I sit in the last row in the park end at the front.

Should not of been allowed in as it was well known what they where gunna be like.

Not gunna lie it was pretty scary when they all charged over.

Big thanks to the stewards and police for containing it. Apart from the 1 divvy who was recording us for some reason.

The away leg should be behind closed doors, this is the way to nip this conduct in the bud, plus a large fine, but i doubt ufa have the ball for that.

18 Aug 2017 06:20:06
They are light years behind us where football violence is concerned, just shows how far we have come in this country. Fair play to the police and stewards though, I thought they handled it pretty well.

I felt sorry for Lookman and Mirallas. They both looked like the trouble got to them a bit. Will be a big test of their character out there for the seasons leg.

18 Aug 2017 11:38:47
Bloody hell mate! You felt sorry for lookman and mirallas? Haha. They where safe if it came down to it.

I felt more sorry for the kids sat by me. Loads where crying and who knows it could've been there first game and what kind of impression will that leave on them

It was proper madness tbh. When chairs started coming over you knew that the didn't give a hoot.



On the performance it was a decent first half. Second half was poor but tbh I couldn't watch the game as I was constantly expecting a bottle to the head.

17 Aug 2017 22:12:08
Credit were its due cuco martina was great today solid an he can't half wip a ball in.

Agree7 Disagree1

18 Aug 2017 06:20:51
I slated him after his first game, but as you say, credit where credit is due, he had a great game last night.

17 Aug 2017 22:09:32
Sorry guys, I wasn't feeling lookman tonight. Won a lot of free kicks and corners from his play but nearly every decision he made (passing wise) was the wrong choice. Bags of talent but needs to learn a lot! Maybe this is why he hasn't been playing as often as we all thought he should have been.

Agree3 Disagree5

17 Aug 2017 22:57:52
I thought he was the one that woke us up after a slightly off first 5-10 mins. He was brilliant as far as I am concerned (sure its all relative, he has years of improving) . I mostly liked how physical and fearless he was. Some of his tackles were immense. He protected the ball pretty well and his pace is obvious. I wouldn't want to have to make the decision to loan him or not.

18 Aug 2017 03:23:12
Sorry Blue disagree. Yes he did some good things. But generally I thought he was off his game. Maybe nerves got to him and he over thunked. I'm not sure. I was surprised he bought Mirallas off instead of him. You could see Mirallas was cheesed off too, the way he threw his arm band down. Best game so far this season and I'm pleased people are laying off Martina. I think he's played really well so far and yet fans are slating him. Good competition for Coleman.

18 Aug 2017 06:23:17
He definitely looked like the crowd trouble got to him. He was quite nervous anyway, but after that, the poor lad rubbish himself! Don't forget he's only a kid and to be honest, he looked like he was playing more of the game that Koeman wants from him.

18 Aug 2017 06:34:04
I'm with you Mowfee on every point. I think he was trying too hard and needs to be attacking the space not the man. He had a decent first half but should of went off midway through the second.

18 Aug 2017 08:05:55
Lookman is a kid and your bringing him down for a few poxy mistakes.

18 Aug 2017 08:39:56
he had a rare chance of 90 mins, and did a lot of good things but as some have said he I still young and learning, last night was great experience gained that he will only learn from.
On another note I though Baines had a really good game as well.

18 Aug 2017 09:37:39
We're not bringing him down bluey, Just voicing our opinion. He's a professional footballer at the end of the day, obviously he has maturing and learning to do but we are just giving constructive criticism. If we thought the above then that's our opinion. Everybody's entitled to one. Good performance overall team wise.

18 Aug 2017 17:32:42
We weren't bringing him down. Just saying he seemed off his game. Maybe down to nerves or whatever. If we were slating him. We'd be saying something like "what on earth was Koeman thinking playing him in such an important game" or "Lookman will be great competition over scrubbing the first team players boots" We did not.

17 Aug 2017 22:04:39
I never wanted Ronald koeman and never wanted Wayne Rooney back . has anyone got a family size piece of humble pie I can stuff down my big gob.

Agree6 Disagree1

18 Aug 2017 01:37:01
Sorry I'v eaten mine, it was the garath barry special, for saying "uncomplementoy thing about him" how he was . arful signing.

17 Aug 2017 21:19:09
This is the best I have seen Everton play in years.

Agree3 Disagree4

17 Aug 2017 22:04:36
Better than when we spanked Man City 4-0 last season 😉.

17 Aug 2017 22:24:28
First half was good but not that good and the second was poor we need a centre forward.

17 Aug 2017 21:04:10
In terms of mindset and the style and tempo of football trying to be played, that's the best 45 minutes I've seen from us in a while. Add Sigurdsson in to that (not sure where, maybe mirallas or Klassen) and we look a force. With a no9 signed Koeman is going to have some job selecting XIs but my word he'll have options on the bench.
Special mentions to Schniederlin, Lookman and Pickford who all look different class. The whole team looks very good tonight.
Just annoyed as I had Keane to score first and a 2-0 win at 55-1. It's not going to stay 2-0 though.

{Ed025's Note - you never know svenny

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 21:59:51
Well in Svenny!

{Ed025's Note - the fondu is on svenny..

17 Aug 2017 20:57:43
2,0 Everton half time there's been crowd trouble with the visiting fans.

{Ed025's Note - we are playing well

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 21:04:55
The whole team are really clicking Ed.

{Ed025's Note - yes mate the tempo is much better..

17 Aug 2017 21:05:07
Watching it on YouTube, all playing well. No one actually playing bad. Hopefully a few more goals second half.

{Ed025's Note - dont tell svenny that.. :)

17 Aug 2017 21:20:05
The dreaded bet Ed025. Must admit its soul-destroying when you bet has come to fruition but there's 45 mins to go lol.

17 Aug 2017 20:35:45
1 up to Everton Michael Keane.

Agree0 Disagree0
