Much better second half

 

Brilliant from Pickford who's command of his area distribution and coming for the ball are top draw

 

Gana and Rooney were everywhere today non stop, Keane is an absolute monster at winning headers even with those giants in the box for corners I felt at ease for a change with him Jags and Pickford behind them

Dowell did well for Forest too* <----

 

Got your back mate ;)

Glad he's on loan and not sitting on the bench here. Can we bring him back in January? Could be useful if we're still in Europa and to try to make an FA Cup run if we've seen some injury attrition. Then again, he needs to spend this year playing and then we can reevaluate his future here.

Love that corner routine but by the look of the ref's reaction the scorer was offside so it didn't count. Sadly the opposition defence didn't have players on the posts; brilliant idea though, never seen one like that before.

Perhaps I'm missing something obvious but how can he be offsides on a corner....unless he's standing inside the goal he'll be behind the ball when it's played

 

Watching it back again, I misunderstood how the play developed. I issue a full and heartfelt retraction :)

He did the exact same thing for our U23's last season but that time the gal stood

See the gueye thread.... you will get the joke.

Just like I got laughed at for saying Evans is good... And now he's on the verge of signing for City. Pienaar failed at Dortmund and Spurs, and helped us to win fuck all and finish exactly where the wage bill would suggest.

I respect your opinion Pete, and maybe it was a unique set of circumstances here at Everton, but would you say that he and Baines were the best left wing combination in the league before he left for Spurs?

No. We conceded far too many goals down that side. Pienaar couldn't cross a ball either always cut back to whip it to the back post with his right boot, usually high and wide. His decision making was awful, played to feet when he should pass in front of the man, and vice versa. Didn't weigh his passes either. He ran a lot though. For me he's up there with Graveson for players who flattered to deceive.

Most of our goals came from the Baines, Pienaar combination. Graveson was a quality player for us. Have to agree to disagree.

Gravesen was a very gifted player but he was a law into himself. His positional discipline was amongst the worst I've seen.

 

When he was on he was a joy to watch though.

 

This Johnny Evans sags is making me laugh. City and Chelsea have spent £100's of millions buying beckenbauers who can't defend.... now they are desperate for a defender who does a job.

 

I still wouldn't have Johnny Evans at Everton.

 

They thought they would get him for a song and pulis can see pound signs.

i thought they were looking to buy him as a backup and to fill the english quota for europe or something. i didn't think they'd actually want him.

Watching the United game is he playing well?

Very tidy, some good passes. Leeds were the much better team - they will be right up in the mix - but I think Forest is definitely the right place for him to develop; they try to play good football with a lot of youngsters and I really like Warburton/ Weir as a management pair.

Hopefully he's good enough to warrant a shot here.

I think so.... imagine having someone who can take a pop from 30 yards without flinching.

Tremendous weapon to have. We haven't really had anyone who can do this.  Barkley has the ability to strike a ball just doesn't get the decision side right.
