    We will have to agree to disagree. I think Toby has not been anywhere close to his best this season. I also think Sanchez has been very good from a defensive point of view. Wins more headers than the other CBs and has pace that they lack. Put a sound defensive midfielder in front of him and you will even see a different player with the ball imo.

    And there were way too many aimless long balls nowhere close to any of our players.

    And fudge Liverpool.

    And Aurier's crosses were brick.

    Well much as it pains me to say it they have belief and confidence in themselves. Loads of it. It makes me sick.

    Caught the last 25. Ive seldom seen as clueless a defensive performance as Everton put in. Could have conceded 3 or 4 in that time. They should fudge off Silva and let a caretaker take the next tough run of fixtures and then bring in a new man.

    As for the Dippers...they're gonna fudging win it aren't they?

    It’s because we had no RB to speak of
    It really was that clear
    Even the knobs on amazon highlighted it
    You can’t have a CM covering for a player out of position constantly... and leave his partner exposed to 3 men

    for the last 3 games Aurier being “out of position” up the pitch was the genius move that gave us the attacking 5 according to the pundits?

    Sissoko and Winks are never paired again? Neither are selected ahead of Ndombele?

    Let's hope Jose has some common sense on this matter.

    Extremely difficult when you are actually very stupid.
    "Stupid is as stupid does"
    Made for the Sanchez, Sissoko and Aurier axis of stupidity.
    Our right side is a disaster, almost cost us the game at the Canning Town Caravan Club.

    For me, the problem was JM gambled ...and lost . I think he felt our front four would cause them so much damage, we would get off to a fast start and their confidence would just evaporate. Unfortunately, we conceded an early goal (again) , the y gained in confidence and took over the midfield where , with just Winksand Sissoko we were totally out numbered. We lost control of the midfield and really should have been three down at the break.

    I was disappointed JM didn't recognize this and bring on more midfielders earlier.

    However, what was most disappointing is that we didn't compete anywhere, in any area, against them and their much higher energy knocked us off our stride. This happens far too often against the better teams and is why we have such a wretched record against them.Two goals against in all four of our matches under JM means our defense needs serious work.

    Oh well, we didn't deserve anything tonight. Hope it improves against Burnley
