Certainly the first three, yet to see enough of Pienaar to judge. Does TC have a realistic chance?
I doubt it Mike, at best he could be on the bench

It was never going to be a pretty game, especially given the player who where missing - basically the creative force in the squad.
Given what was available and on the bench, then you can't really see much of a different team selction to be honest. OK, you could argue Jaks for Carsley, Neville or Hibbert, but that is about it.
Given the team we had out and the way we played we basically still dominated the game from start to finish - they had no real sustained control of the game what so ever. It's not like we have been out played or anything like that.
Moyes went for an attacking line up, given the players available. Instead of being happy with a 1-0 win the team went for a second. Are those of you calling for his head the same people as those calling for his head last year against Spurs becasue he choose the defensive option.
Last night equalising goal was not much more than a sucker punch.

to be fair they did exactly as they said they would do, defend, defend, defend n then get us on the break
but tht still dnt change the fact tht AJ missed 2 pens n we didnt kill off the game AGEN!

I did not say a word from the 2nd penalty miss until i got home. Could not believe what happened. Now if we had sunk those 2 pens 3-1 and most of the utter rubbish written on this thread would not be here. The so called fans who want Moyes out on his head are absolute nobeds. Yes it was inexplically shit but thats a ridiculous comment.
Players thought it was too easy. The defence were non existent and like schoolboys with nobody doing their duties. Neville is shit and has been for a while. Fuck only know how he's our captain. Win in Kharkiv? Thats what we need to do and with the missing players from last night we should do it.
Exactly my view!
Why u all saying "Sack Moyes"? 1 bad Formational desicion, when we had no good midfielders to pick from xcept Jags?Who didn't even start!
Defence is awsome but last nite they fought they wouldn't have to even touch the ball, " hey Lescott lets walk back to our position, Lescott: yh sound Yobo lad" flipping joke!
But They now know they aren't going to be a Walk in the Park and hopefully we will have sum quality players back!!
(How long is arteta out for?)

against the boys.....I'm talking u-9, 10's etc.Point being whilst the kids are pretty good
the dads should beat them, and whilst I don't remember the kids ever winning, the
games usually went along the lines of dads playing like headless chickens and where
as they could have just kept their heads and walked the games, the kids often took
advantage of the "better"opposition, and let the dads become their own worst enemies.
I know it's a strange way to look at it......but then I'm a bit strange.
It's football!.....doesn't matter what level, these things just happen.
Moyes will be working very hard(I hope) to stop it happening again.

“I maybe wasn’t as confident as the first one but I was confident I was going to score.”
....which means (to me) that he was never going to score it.
I'm sure though that I saw Faddy holding the ball and I assumed he was going to take it, could be wrong...it was a bit chaotic . Anyone got it on tape can tell me what really happened?
(Edit....just looked at the Everton TV coverage which was Channel 5's and it just shows the incident so no clue there)

if decsisions were made well, then aj wouldnt have had to take the pen again, and then would be confident for the one later on in the game. he should/could have had 3 goals from penalties.
all this talk of moyes out, start using your heads, it cant be 100% right 100% of the time, he is slowely bringing us back to one of the big 4/5/6.
lets start showing support and not getting on their backs.

According to the Mirror today Baines wanted to take it but Phil Neville took the ball off him and gave it to AJ...
Apprently Baines had the ball and Neville Took it off him and gave it to AJ.
Is there an echo in here ?

Its been 4 days & im still fooked off about the game. This was the first time ive ever left before the final whistle, i just couldn't believe it when i saw AJ's 2nd disappear into the crowd. But, i still saw enough to truly believe we will get a result over there, as long as arteta is back that is. AJ & Yak will come good.
at least we played a bit better today and only lost due to 2 defensive blunders. Even with a really poor team out we were a matrch for Villa (except for those mistakes). Jags made a bit of a difference, but whilst Gravesen, Arteta and Cahill are out I think we have to go 451. We just don't have the quality to open up teams with the present first team due to injuries, we need to get back to keeping clean sheets and trying to keep hold of possession and hope we pinch a goal, at the moment we don't look like scoring, we don't have enough of the ball and we can't keep any clean sheets. Can't wait for Tommy G to be back, the amount of good runs Baines makes and no one can find him. Another chance for Johnson and another miss, getting worrying now - I'd still play him tho as lone striker as no way can Yakubu play up front on his own. We need to get back to basics, start defending properly, start competing and grind out some results until we get our first choice players fit.
