    Think we’re in a 4-2-3-1 with Gylfi as the 10 behind Dom. We can do this if we get off to a good start. Tuchel’s done us a favor with their lineup, but given the state of the benches, we’ve got to take advantage of it before they bring on the changes in the second half.

    Match Thread Everton v Southampton 1/3/21 - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Felt like we almost didn’t realize the second goal was called off. The energy level dropped after that, and we played the rest of the game as if we were coasting with a 2-0 lead. That and it was obvious that they weren’t much threat to score at all except from set pieces. Just seemed like we...

    Fantastic effort from the whole team! Special mentions for Keane, Pickford, Holgate, Godfrey, Richy, and also Seamus with the captain’s performance after getting slagged off on here all week.

    I like Carlo. I think we’ve seen clear progress with him. We’re not going to do any better for a manager. But today and the Newcastle games are absolute failures of coaching. You can blame the players for effort all you want (and he and the fans will), but the lineups and tactics in those games...

    Think this is the play. We desperately need more speed / athleticism up top if we’re going to sit deep and play counter-attacking football.

    Fair enough. No argument there.

    Think that was clearly true post-restart, but there’s an argument for Holgate before that.

    Don’t understand the shouts about Gomes being too negative. He’s the one who has at least been looking for the ball over the top to the forwards, especially early on. Think there’s a bit of bias going on there, as he was one of our best in that half.

    Richy has looked better going forward, but both goals resulted from him not getting back and leaving a 3 on 2 overload on that side, which made the two defenders reluctant to close down the man with the ball (Digne on the first, Davies on the second) and leave their man open. It actually...

    Did Carlo grow up a Newcastle fan or something? Twice this season his management against them has been absolutely baffling.

    2020/21 Richarlison

    Saw that too. If he’s going to be like that, then it basically negates any advantage he has over Iwobi at the moment, because frankly Iwobi is offering more going forward lately.

    Felt like Carlo gave them just a bit too much respect and could have been a little more aggressive with the tactics offensively, but since Richarlison is playing like a poor man’s Theo Walcott right now, maybe it wouldn’t have mattered. Also think the subs were about right but came about 15-20...

    Ref made the end a lot tougher than it should have been. But 2nd on Boxing Day with seemingly half the squad injured?! Happily take that.

    Feels like the international break wrecked our momentum. So many guys haven’t seemed the same since they got back, though Mina was a bit better today.

    2020/21 Seamus Coleman

    Yeah, it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that a player could be replaced in an upgrade (see Baines -> Digne) without turning all negative about him overall. What good does that do anyone? Sure, Seamus doesn’t offer as much going forward, but he can still do a job in a defensive game (a la...
