Portsmouth V Everton

A match that DM would probably prefer to play 4-5-1 and we've only got (possibly) three fit front line midfielders..VDM (if he can be called front line after one performance, but that's another thread), Carsley and Davies. Faddy will play mid again but then if Pip's not fit does he play Beattie and go 4-4-1and a half or maybe even give Vidarsson a start?

 

Tough one but at least the defence is looking solid...it'll need to be, but I'll take a 1-0 win..late (as late as possible) thirty yarder from VDM :D .

Could do with winning this as would then put us ahead of Pompy and give us a little breathing space for the rest of December.

 

Midfield is very week as Osman also out of the Pompy game.

 

Would expect VDM to play if fit and wouldn't surprise me if the only change is Neville (if fit) for Osman. If not then Davies will be back in.

desperate times call for desperate measures.

 

if VDM is fit play him. faddy will play on the left. davies maybe i dunno.

 

but with cahill, arteta, neville (possibly) and osman out. i reckon we will either play vidarsson in a four man midfield or alternativly try a 4,3,3

 

-----------howard-----------

yobo---stubbs---lescott---valente

VDM---------davies--------faddy

BT------------AJ------------Vaughn

 

thats not gonna happen but its a suggestion

to be honest i'd take 0-0 if someone offered me it now but with chelski on the horizon need all 3 points

 

 

 

it will be a 442 me thinks usual suspects at the back at the moment with

 

faffy cars davids vin diesel

 

in mid and aj and bt up front

 

think faddy will need to play well and try an leave cars and davies to sit and clean up leaving vdm and to run at the defenders

Difficult game considering the injuries we have this week.

 

But still looking at the line ups some of you have posted - three or four years ago we would have only dreamed of having a starting 11 like that to put on the pitch - so although a few of our usual starters are unavailable - still a team that could get a result.

 

It's not like there are there is going to be two or three youth team players starting.

 

I tend to think a few set backs also helps some of the players kick on and just put that little more effort in- the team spirit really shining though so to say.

 

Definately a game where 3 points could be picked up - but considering how well Portsmouth are doing and our injuries I will settle for an away point at this time.

the line up shows we are lacking quality in depth. our first choice 11 would beat most teams, we lose about 5 players and our squad is not near good enough. ok i know 5first team players is a big loss, but we should be able to replace maybe 3 of them with some sort of quality

Stevo said..... not too bothered about naysmith, id rather Valente

but i am dreaming about gettin neville arteta and cahill back

 

.......

 

And Hibbert.

 

And that, i hope, was the last time i see Beattie in a blue shirt, Fookin useless, has he been on the pitch for 90 minutes in any game this season, He's getting to be like VDM.

Did you see Sol Campbell kicking out ala Beckham 98 at Vaughan after the final whistle? Vaughan shoved him back - he's got a bad temper when things go against him.

 

Campbell was a disgrace though, you could hear him on the mic saying "fuck off", Clattenburg came over and had a word with him and you could see him walk away afterwards mouthing "fucking hell".

 

When Vaughan was in school he head butted a keeper for saving one of his shots (so I heard.. ).

One of the poorest display's I have seen by an Everton team in a long time. Hoping this was a little glitch and not the start of a pattern.

 

I know we were fielding a scratch team and are currently missing two very influential players, but as a Prem side we should be able to cope with a few injuries/suspensions.

 

Cracking goal by the way, just slightly better than Essien's yesterday.

OK Fozz, we have identified the problem, but are there any initiatives at Goodison to address the problem?. I don't think so, our lack of strength in depth has been a problem for years.

 

A lack of cash + less than glamerous profile = struggle

 

The only route out of this is to fastrack some of the kids, because I can't see us having any other options, beside a mysterious investor coming to our aid on a shining white charger. ;) .

Agree with what you say Mac..people seem happy to put up with it though DM included simply put he needs some money to see how good/bad he really is in the transfer market

Mac I agree kids should be given a chance and fast tracked but the fact is Moyes seems to have a problem with playing them. Take the Portsmouth game for example, we had Stubbs playing in midfield as a play maker for christ sake, why not give Vidarsson a go if we thast desperate. His tactics screamed a lack of tactical ability on Saturday IMO.
