Cardiff (Away) Tuesday February 26th

Recommended Posts

Just now, Gwlad all over said:

Walcott and Schneiderlin, now's your time.....please.

Well someone in that line up needs to perform tonight, Gana and Schniederlin just doesn't work for me.

The manager has had a long time to look at the guys in training leading up to this. If he has picked those lads because they are showing something in training, then I’m fine with that.

Would rather have Davies in there with Gana, and Lookman on the left though.

Have to admit, never thought I'd see the Gana-Schneiderlin pairing again.  Smacks of desperation, which it probably is.  Silva's comments about players lacking competitiveness, focus, aggression, and desire reflect what many of us have said here on TT .

Tonight's match promises to be revealing, one way or another.

"Radical? no. Direct to you, no," the Portuguese boss responded when asked if sizeable changes have been made for the remainder of the campaign.

"Because in February if we start to change everything radical then that means everything that we did [previously] does not make sense. It's not what I am thinking. 

"We have to understand why we are not doing the same. Because some bad results [we do not] play with the same confidence, it's clear to me. 

"The details are making a big difference in our results or not achieving the results because the last few games I didn't see one team commanding control, or control the game against us and put problems to us. 

"We are losing points and not achieving the good results in some moments, [it's] in the details. In this type of detail we have to work more and more to be consistent as a team."

Team selection is awful and he's chatting absolute bollocks about the football. Win, lose or draw today he deserves to be sacked he's more arrogant and clueless than Martinez.

If Morgan is showing more in training thanks Gomes that’s a bad sign. Hopefully they have given Gomes a week off to recharge his batteries

Bar Digne and Richarlison that team could have been picked by Allardyce 2 in the middle again cause Gylfi isn’t going to be wanting to do too much tracking back and Jags with no match fitness with possibly no protection from an over run midfield, wtf is Silva’s thinking with this line up unless he’s got a lot of injuries and niggles this is suicide.

It's Cardiff for Christ's sake. Already one of the worst teams in the Premier League, and on top of that missing some of their key players. If those players Silva has put out can't beat Cardiff then it's on the players' efforts, not the formation or the line-up.

Very worrying that Mina is on the bench. If Jags is better than him that's a worry it if he isn'tt fit enough to start he shouldn't be on the bench in the first place. Jags himself is lacking match fitness and is kicking on so there's a high risk of him straining himself and needing to come off.

On the bright side it wasn't the team coach:lol:.

One coach was stopped on Bowring Road and the driver was arrested on suspicion of drug driving.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of possession of cocaine, three men were arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis and a youth was reported for possession of criminal proper (cash) and possession of cannabis.

A second raid on Electric Avenue saw one man arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis, and eight wraps of white powder and 10 bags of suspected cannabis were seized following a search of the vehicle.

A total of 15 cases of alcohol were also recovered.

He's just had more than two!

Incidentally the last time we lost to Cardiff in the league I wasn't even a twinkle in my parent's eyes (1956). No pressure lads.

Is it illegal to drink on a private coach?

No. Just seen a full post from the mersey side police and they've said excessive drinking is why there's been trouble at away games. Reading between the lines they basically blame the Everton fan for getting himself slashed in the face. Absolute farce. Waste of public funds just to try and make their stats look better.

everyone who wants jags you're out your mind, he almost just gifted them the match.  DIGNE saves the day

Slight over-reaction, he almost gifted them a goal, not the match.

Brilliant distribution from Pickford, Charlie with lead feet in the box. 

Anyone else noticing as the season goes on that Richarlison is not a very good dribbler of the ball? So often see him run out of ideas/have the ball taken off him

I'm thinking of filing the following missing report:

Name:

Quality 

Circumstances of loss: 

Has been missing from Everton's footballing display tonight, last seen some months ago, if found please return to players dressing room Goodison Park.

now that cardiff will have to go for it i hope it opens them up and we can start attacking more

Yep, and undoubtedly a couple chances will rest on Richarlison being able to make a pass or complete a dribble and he'll inevitably fuck it up
