Davies and Digne fucking around with it in our own corner started all this.

More like the rest of the team being terrified of the ball forcing them into a tight spot. Absolute joke how our players go hiding.

Digne could and should have cleared it. Davies had an opportunity to clear it but didn't. Sure they might have been played into a corner but someone has to take responsibility and nobody in this squad ever does.

Davies is the one who probably steps up the most. More often than not when we're in trouble he ends up with the ball as everyone else hides. Him and Barry would have seen the game out tonight. We're desperate for a proper centre mid.

Perspective everyone. Deep breaths. We were by far the better team. In the long run, this is what matters. I’d rather lose by fluke than win by fluke, because flukes happen very rarely. We are improving significantly, despite all the injuries.

Just got home from the match and even though I’ve had a number of hours to calm down I’m still fuming. I had a great 90 minutes, my son was all smiles after some recent poor displays, Kean got his first goal, DCL carried on with his scoring form, Bernard was superb and Delph had one of his best games in an Everton shirt then came stoppage time. 
 

They were coasting and completely switched off. Carlo was waving his arms like mad in front of me and we were so naive it was untrue. Pickford tried a quick throw that gave possession away, Davies and Digne played themselves into all sorts of trouble. It was just pitiful. On many other days they would have got away with it but not today, a real sickener. A number of people sat round me left just before the 90 so god knows what they thought when they turned the radio on in the car. We were in total control and dominated throughout. I believe if we were only 1 up it wouldn’t of happened as they would have been more concentrated. With nearly two weeks to dwell on it I just hope this won’t have longer reaching consequences.

What the actual fuck was that.  Travelling today for work so only watched it now. Saw an email with the score and by the 90th minute I was sure the email was wrong.
 

Might be the most Everton way to lose a game ever. Two goals by Floria Lejuene ( who has never scored)  in added time. Two goals when it should have been 5-0 and out of sight. Two goals when we should have been managing the game in their corner.  Awful awful awful.

I very much doubt Barry would have made up for Davies's short falls, as much as I rated Barry those two together would have been one of the slowest central pairings in the history of mankind! 

9 minutes 3 fouls and failed to clear the ball, the lad isn't good enough the sooner people stop making excuses for the lad the better 

Plays himself and us into trouble nearly every game

Last time we looked any good in midfield it was with those two. 

Failed to clear the ball? What was his teammates doing to help? If anything Digne should have launched it but twice(?) gave the ball back to Davies. He doesn't play himself into trouble, ore often than not if a players in a pickle they end up passing it to Davies as he always shows for the ball. Had we had three more players of his ilk in midfield then we see that game out.

That was a sore one last night, the team obviously has an issue of some kind. The last 4 or 5 seasons it’s happened too many times to be a fluke or coincidence. Goals are outcomes but scoring them is a process, you can’t blame just one player for that they just failed as a team to react to the changed threat and didn’t play to kill the game.

I’m sure however, all that can be fixed by Ancelotti; the other 92 minutes of the performance suggest that he is already fixing many others aspects; players finding their right place, more organisation in defence and we actually start to look like a team AND we are again a fun team to watch. 
 

It’s easy to get caught up in the disappointment but There were far too many positives last night for a couple of brain farts to detract from it.

Rotten nights sleep after that, just couldn’t stop thinking how we messed up. At 2-1 which was disappointing  after controlling the game, how the hell did we throw the win away with seconds to go. Delph should have kicked the ball upfield and out of play, there wouldn’t have been time then for them to get back in our half as they did, but no they lump it forward, we give away a stupid free kick (Delph again I think) giving them the opportunity to lump it into our box and we freeze like rabbits in headlights. So, so frustrating, They had 2 shots, both in last two minutes and both hit the net.

I'll reiterate once people stop making excuses for the lad the better.... 

Digne played us into trouble also but to say Davies doesn't play himself into trouble is bewildering, the lad undoes what good he does do with ridiculous short passes or to the opposition 

He does show for the ball granted but it means nothing if your not productive with it

There are a lot of Davies bum boys at Everton. As much as we all want him to do well it is clear he is having a bad period at the club at the moment. I honestly think a loan will do him good. Follow Kenny to Bundesliga. He needs a break from the hot house and maybe a foreign country will mature him a bit too.

Digne has more space and opportunity to get rid given his position. When Davies passes it back he should either lump it or look for another pass (which wasn't on as we have a gang of shitbags). He does neither and passes responsibility back to Davies. 

How can he be productive if his teammates aren't showing for it?

Sorry it was all Digne at fault and Davies did no wrong, never does by most accounts 

Now where did I put that LSD.....

Wasting your breathe mate.....

When peteo chose to slate gana he pretty much came out with all sorts of ridiculous comments as to who was better and why gana is gash.

In stating that Gana was as bad as he is... he had to bump Davies up to level that he isn't.

I really want Davies to do well, I have a mate who used to double date with Davies mum.and dad and he comes from good stock and by all accounts is a crackin lad.... sadly the first team is not for him right now and maybe a loan will do him good

Pretty sure if Ancelotti didn't made any changes and they still equalized, the same people on here would blame him for not doing so.

Probably true! 😂

He's done very well tbf. Playing better football with a worse squad than what Benetiz had. 

More points than Benitez had at this stage last season as well. Who would have thought!

Despite the cluster fuck that is UK politics atm, I'm glad we don't have a TT cabinet in charge. No one here seems to get the idea of collective responsibility! No point singling out individual players, or saying it was all down to Ancellotti's subs - we're looking at repeated collective failings that will take time to work out. Swapping Silva for a decorated high profile manager was never going to be a cure all, the capitulation against Liverpool and spaffing away three points like that last night prove that. Ancellotti has to learn how to get the best out of these players, the players have to adapt and in many cases improve, Brands and the board have to working on raising the quality in the squad. 

In other words, more shit like this will probably happen before it gets better!

I'd blame the manager, Delph, Schneiderlin, Sidibe and to a lesser extent Niasse. But whatever makes your boat floaty.

Tricky one for me. The game is being shown here in Dubai but it's an 11-30pm ko and I have a very early start tomorrow morning.

Maybe the first half only and hope we have the game won by ht.

I'd settle for stability and a positive trend in performances, on the pitch and behind the scenes.

Mass clear out definitely needed.

I still can’t believe we didn’t win this. Managed to summon courage to watch the MOTD highlights today. That foul Davies gave away for the free kick that led to their goal was a bit soft. I can’t get me my head around what a calamitous couple of minutes it was. For their first goal if Holgate takes the post instead of almost blocking Pickford after his flap it’s a simple header away. Their second goal if it wasn’t us would be hilarious. All the defenders jumping around all over the place like shoppers on Black Friday. I’m still furious. 
 

On a lighter note it reminded me of ‘Don’t panic Mr Mainwaring’

That is such an unfortunate still for Pickford and makes it look a hell of a lot worse for him than it actually was. It’s not like he’s gone and actually stood behind the line. If you watch the video he ends up there after going to make a save from a shot but it’s blocked by one of our defenders (I think, could’ve actually hit one of theirs with the mad melee).

Horrible to watch all over again, but I’m still of the opinion that it’s not a foul in the centre circle, which makes it all the worse to watch. I’m still so pissed with Delph for launching it the way he did, anyhow, end of, I’m going to move on.

I agree but that dive he preempted was a bit weird as he dived at a diagonal behind the goal line. That’s why he ended up in the position in the still. I’ve always been a huge fan of his but I’m starting to think that having someone calmer between the sticks might be necessary. Also the other two behind the goal line just makes this situation look even more farcical than it was.

As much as I am gutted I think this is a freak result and we shouldn't take away from us dominating a decent prem side. I think we could look at not being 3 or 4 up. for 90 minutes (93 minutes) that was how I want to see us playing. The one thing I am bored of since Bobby's 1st full season is every year we seem to have a massive blip that essentially leaves me looking to next season because I think top 4 or top 6 is gone. I think with wins at west ham and newcastle which I hope we are capable of I was thinking Europe was a potential.
