Lyon

On 26 June 2017, Traoré left Chelsea to join Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais on a five-year contract for an initial transfer fee of €10 million (£8.8 million), plus potential add-ons. Chelsea reportedly inserted a buy-back clause into Traoré's contract and would receive 15 per cent of any profit made by Lyon on the fee should they sell Traoré in the future. Chelsea would also have first refusal should Traoré move again.

Looks a steal for that money.

Mirallas has played the best I've seen of an Everton player this season. Koeman really isn't doing himself any favours is he? Feel sorry for Holgate. It's the first rough patch I've seen him go t

At least the young lads have all shown fight. They have been far better than the experienced ones.

Get Rafa Benitez. He has no future at Newcastle with Fat Ashley putting the club up for sale.

Probably he will rather wait for new investors to pass him the cash bag. Like koeman, he could spend another 150 M and chances are he will buy much better players...

There was after the scuffle and our goal. Still can't build off of it though 

That's what I could hear through the radio feed, but after we conceded the second it was as if all the air was sucked out of the place. I couldn't even hear a rally when 5 minutes of extra time was posted. I can't blame the faithful.....if there's any of those left :(

AAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHFuck Sake.

Can't question the effort. But the confidence of these players is shot. We can't buy a win at the moment. Too many individual errors. Simple things just won't come off.

Can't see how we can progress now in the Europa now.

So so frustrating. I thought we were going to get this one before they scored the 2nd, and that just knocked the wind out of us.

Fair shout to the Goodison faithful, can't ask for much more from them (except the hobby knobhead shouting 'you're shit, youre fucking shite' at Sigurdsson when trying to take a corner...why do these fuckers bother going to games?)

What next. Pfft.

When we conceded the second goal we needed one player to let the lads know, you got back I to this and very nearly took the lead... we can do it again!

that person would need to be a born winner, someone like Rooney. Only one person to blame for him not getting any minutes tonight.

williams.... that was needed, but from more than just one person. 

Mirralas? First half you were great, but then Kevin came out again for the rest of the match. What is it mentally with him? Somethings not right.

Klaassen?????? Eh? Stop comparing him with Naismith, it’s not fair on Steven. Klaasen is shit.

Vlasic was not the same tonight. 

Pickford was average again. Distribution was awful.

Cuco, had two bad moments, but generally solid. Although he is the fans go to boy.

Keane... still looking overpriced.

Davies, tried hard but needs more game time.

DCL, still looks good, but being left to rot out there on his own.

Holgate, feel sorry for him. Awful tackle, schoolboy stuff. But solid otherwise.

Morgan... phew, he’s injured. Pretty sure performances will improve now that broken down rolls Royce is out.

we didn’t play that bad to be fair. We had our moments but didn’t take advantage. They hit us when they needed to, but looked vulnerable.

Should've have been in that situation, defenders (inc him) ball-watching on the run-up; we should have cleared it.

Keane was very lethargic. It's like watching slow motion replay at times.

Klaassen really struggled but wasn't helped at all by the team. Plays well with Rooney as he has the quality and it proactive. 

At times today Klaassen was the only one showing for the ball, gets it and then had no one moving for him to pass to. Inevitably loses the ball and the fans got in his back. Whole team wasn't good enough. DCL really struggled to top, should have started Rooney. 

Koeman can fuck off and take Schneiderlin and Keane with him. No commitment, no fight, simply not Everton. Show Gana, Sandro and Martina the door as well. They aren't even footballers, doubt they'd start in any team in the Prem.

The best we’ve played all season to be honest. Genuinely thought we’d go on to win it after getting the equaliser but then their second goal killed us. That’s what happens when you’re a team down on confidence. 

For the first time this season there were things to build on from a game, even though it’s another defeat. I hope that tonight shows Koeman the system we need to be playing but I have a horrible feeling that come Sunday afternoon we’ll be back with he paceless first 11 we’ve been treated to, with no width.

the longer Koeman is the manager, the deeper in the shite we will find ourselves.  If he is still here by the return leg we will not only be out of europe, we will be following it with being out of the domestic cups and the premier league,  in fact we will be Villa mark 2

I'd not blame confidence for the second goal. It was a poor tactical change from the manager. Sandro completely mucked it up, and shouldn't have been given the opportunity. I hope I never see Martina paired with Sandro down the left ever again. 

I'd agree it's probs the best and played this season though. Davies, Vlasic, and Mirallas looked very positive, and I'm sure they'll start under our next manager.

I wasn’t blaming the goal on a lack of confidence, I was saying their second goal killed us because of a lack of confidence.

That second half was the best we've played all season right up until their second goal. Having wingers on the pitch worked. Having Sig in the right position worked.

If it wasn't for Martina trying to hoof the ball up the pitch which Sandro couldn't control (not many players would) they wouldn't of got that winner.

Credit where it is due, he's been shite this season but Williams was much improved last night.

Just watched the replays. Williams should have got a yellow but he gets surrounded by of their lot and then the keeper rushes over to escalate it more. How can you justify only booking one of their lot?

How can you blame Everton for fan trouble when it was caused by the Lyon players overreaction? 

And if you look for the route of the cause that falls squarely on the referees shoulders for not controlling the game letting Lyon piss about and dive all over the pitch.

If one of the Lyon players had done the same to Pickford I would hope that our lot would also react in the same way.

Pickford would get up and let the player know, maybe Williams too, but not half the team. They'd be a yellow for the opposition and no crowd trouble. 

Williams had every right to throw a punch in his situation. Five lads round him looked like they were ready for a bukake circle.
