2019/20 Pre-season.

Recommended Posts

It seems crazy to me - playing a game after only really 4 days of training where the opposition will be well up for it. Just hope there are no injuries. Good experience for the youngster tho

Not sure how lucrative these trips are or whether its contractual with SportPesa

First pre season game tomorrow.

cant imagine a strong team but good to see Everton back in action and getting excited for the season!

Summer is always tough going with no real matches played - WWC has been ok, and the Cricket. But its not the same...

I thoroughly enjoy watching other sports and the media giving them the coverage without the media saturation of football. Don’t get me wrong I’ll be excited come August 10th but until then I’ll enjoy the coverage of the Golf, cricket, tennis.

Think it's in the contract as same happened last year with Gor Mahia.

Mines doing the same even though I’m a season ticket holder. I called them they said they were having problems with the new website and that they fixed it. Came off the phone logged back in and it still doesn’t work! 😡

I switched browser then logged in. Still couldn't see a link so just changed page address to evertonfc.com/live and it's working.

Mine is not working at all whatever I do. Not that I’m missing much it seems.

The kids looking much better the first half team. Probably because they’re more used to playing together. 

They’re also trying to impress. The first team players should’ve been making the same effort

Sharks’ GK the hero.  Two very nice saves, and scored winning PK.  Everton lose on PKs, 4-3..

Second save would've been a yellow card and a retake under the new rules with VAR in place (the way it's been used at the WWC). Not that I'm complaining, don't mind losing that and they deserved it for their pen celebrations alone!

Is it true that Stekelenberg did his usual trick of being a hologram for their goal? I missed it you see. 

Also, was Lookman’s injury bad?

Yep pretty much right. Holgate trying to play their lightening striker offside and then Stek all out of position as the guy rolled it past him from 6 yards. Looked like he was expecting him to pass it. 

Only saw the first half but thought Broadhead looked lively. Lookman did try to play on initially so hopefully its more of a precaution but he was straight down the tunnel.

Everton score.  Williams, free kick just outside box.  1-1.

Young  team second half.  The “vets” are Holgate , Baningime.

Was a bit of a weird goal. Looked like they all thought it was offside and just walked it in. Strange goal.

OS just posted lineup.  Looks like 3-3-3-1, unless Schneiderlin is playing CH.  Mirallas and Niasse starting.

I thought it would be either Williams (or Davies) at RB myself in our usual formation.

I am watching on the official site (STH's get the game streamed) and they've been saying that there were technical difficulties leading up to the match - the official broadcast went live a minute and a half late so keep trying if the YouTube links are dead, chances are they are playing catch up and behind due to the official stream being poor. 

@Shukes @Matt

We've just scored too, but ruled out for offside! Not sure what the reasoning was as it looked onside, pretty much all Everton too in the opening 15 minutes. André Gomes and Morgan Schneiderlin with Tom Davies at the top of a midfield triangle - Nathan Broadhead getting a lot of the ball on the left wing which is good to see. 

Not seeing much of Kevin Mirallas although he has been wedged as a makeshift right-back. Despite putting in the effort there's nothing up top from Oumar Niasse who appears to be a second behind to each ball, hardly influencing the game at all.
