Manager got it wrong from the off and then decided inexplicably to continue with it even when it clearly wasn’t working. Less said about Iwobi the better. Rondon crap again too. So disappointing
Selection ,I think Rafa today got caught out giving players a chance ,iwobi how much does he get paid ,and rondom is jut not cutting it ,young Gordon and dobbin from the start ,I thought the ref was poor for both teams ,to be honest the better team were West Ham
Deserved what we got..... Iwobi and Rondon should be gone in January one is an oxygen thief and the other past it.... struggling without Richi and DCL .... IMO I prefer Mina at the back Keane and Godfrey not a good combination .... 1-0 made it look close
They were better than us. We have a striker who’s mobility is shite and we’re missing our 2 best players
Iwobi and Rondon poor, but how do you expect players to feel confident when the fans turn up only to sit in silence until somethings not going right and then moan.
I for one cannot wait for us to leave Goodison, it's like a haunted shell at this point
Rafa's team selection and tactics have been great until today. Playing an inform Grey out of position to play an out of form Iwobi and dropping Gordon who had a fantastic last game is odd to say the least. Top that off with Rondon as a sole striker at home and you have shot yourself in the foot 3 times even before kick off
We were so poor. Pickford should be punching that ball away before the corner they scored from too, not quite sure why he’s even contemplating trying to catch it. They were just a better team than us - end of. Gonna be a long old slog of a season if we can’t bring some more back up and quality in as we rely so heavily on our first 11. Never looked like scoring and could have played all night and not scored. Rondon isn’t the answer but is only playing as we have nobody else(maybe he needs to go with some youth). Iwobi on the other hand shouldn’t be anywhere near the bench never mind the starting 11. Robbing a living that fella. Also, a few other players weren’t up to scratch today, and when the players who are supposed to be in your starting 11 don’t perform, there’s only gonna be one outcome and that’s exactly what happened.
1) you can only go so far without your 2 best attacking players. desperately need Richy and DCL back.
2) Said this many times but Godfrey isn’t a centre-back.
3) Gordon didn’t deserve to be dropped for Iwobi.
4) Rondon couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat.
That’s what happens when you have 9.5 men on the field
Godfrey was shocking today Holgate would of been better in there. In saying that wasn't an awful lot of positives from that
This was always going to happen. Been exposed can blame iwobi rondon nobody turned up today. Need plenty of cash spent on this squad. Better team won just glad it wasn’t city or them over the park today. Enough said.
Ex-Evertonians schooled the current Evertonians... literally. Moyes, Zouma, Vlasic... Our squad is really threadbare thin. We can moan about Rondon and Iwobi all year long. But seriously, do we really have better choices on the bench? The club needs a shake-up. Moshiri has committed to the club. But the rest of the management is simply not good enough. From scouting, academy, finance, marketing... maybe kitman (remember Sidibe sock saga?). If scouting does their job, we won't have such poor squad depth. If academy is good, we should have more young players stepping up. If finance/marketing is good, we won't be tied by FFP. Pointless to keep blaming just the players and manager when the entire club is badly run. The club management needs to wake up! We paid the price from years of poor management. Brands should take major responsibility
Playing with 9 players is the problem. Rondon and Iwobi need to go. It doesn't matter who replaces them. Just got to get on with it.
Playing Iwobi - he’s useless and had so many chances now - and Rondon isn’t good enough full stop, let alone a full match when he’s not contributing. If the squad isn’t good enough then blood some youngsters, they will not be any worse than those two!
Pickford made some good saves but he is woeful when the ball is in the air. Need dcl and richy back asap.
Poor line up. Poor tactics. Poor passing. Poor all over the pitch and West Ham weren’t even good, that’s how bad Everton where today!
These wildly up and down, lackluster games are the long term effects of having a director of football, Brands; if we're being honest just isn't cutting the mustard!
Add to that fact we've had too many managers in quick succession!
We are a club that always keeps an established, committed, passionate central core, a backbone of players that we tweak and build on! On the whole and tragically we've seen nothing but wage chasing managers and players since Moyes's exit.
We have to get back to ourselves and the principles that make "in my heart in my soul" true for all those who have the great privilege to manage and play for our precious club!
A disheartened, disillusioned Blue.
If dobbin can't get a kick about in these circumstances then what's the point
To think we have spent millions and million putting that team together
Got to give the young strikers a chance rather than giving rondon 90 mins
Well you can't say rondon was given a chance in the team, so much negativity around iwobi who did as much as Townsend and gray today for the team, but poor in the air at the back today to scared of Antonio
In fairness I think we beat them today with dcl and Ricarlson
Iwobi offered nothing. Rondon very little and too many players underperformed including Doucoure who has been brilliant so far. Pickford's distribution particularly in the 1st half was woeful.
Nothing up front rondom is useless without richy or dcl we were getting Nothing off a well organised west ham side
Started on the back foot and got progressively worse. What is it that Carlo and now Rafa see in Iwobi. Surely we must have a ball boy worth a try.
