Defensively excellent, with the exception of the ball watching for the goal. However nothing going forward. Liverpool conceded 4 against Bournemouth, why did we not have a go at them. Lennon, Barkley and Valencia offered nothing in the attacking third. Need some serious transfer activity in January. Gutted yet again.

I have defended him twice now but Funes Mori was the guilty one either ball watching and/ or slow reaction. The one that hit the post and deemed a goal (correctly) and tonight. You are spot on Alistair. Gutted is an understatement. Still roll on the next one. I do honestly believe that Koeman is the man for us.

Defensively excellent but short by 2 minutes so in the end it counts for nothing! Scruffy shot by Sturridge but he shook baines off to easily, the reaction from the rest was just to slow Robles nowhere!
But yes the real issue is we offered little in an attacking sense! Valencia, Lennon put a shift in but did not trouble the keeper, it seems it's Lukaku or nothing!
For his extra effort Barkley just lacked that bit of quality when it was needed, sorry to say yet again!
However the crowd was excellent so RK cannot have any complaints there!
It was always a draw but they had a bit of luck to win it!

{Ed025's Note - we never tested mignolet with even a shot, lots of endeavour but a lack of quality im afraid wakka..

Barkley didn't really produce anything worthwhile.
Valencia wasn't as effective as he was against Arsenal.
However, I thought Lennon did OK, but we need players to be more than just "OK".

I would be absolutely ashamed if one of our players made that tackle Barkley did. He shouldn't be alowed anywhere near a football pitch for a long long time.

Why didn't you go for it instead of trying to kick our players into submission? For me, tonight wasn't as much about lack of quality as it was about lack of courage from your part.

{Ed025's Note - it was,nt good mate i grant you that, there was no lack of courage though, we faded yes and never tested your dodgy keeper but to be fair you were not all that either..

I agree ed025 I'm sure RK can't wait for the window to open, our shortcomings are obvious to all.
Some players seem haunted by the RM tactics and unable to move on.
Tonight was the best opportunity in years to undo the derby hoodoo and first half promised much but as you say the quality was sadly missing!
Frankly we didn't do enoug to win it a draw was the best our performance offered!

{Ed025's Note - your right wakka mate..

It was a terrible tackle by Barkley, but I've seen way too many disgusting tackles by darkside players on Everton players over the years. I can remember a knee-high shocker by Jimmy Case that effectively ended Geoff Nulty's career. Doesn't excuse Barkley, but there are plenty of instances similar to Case on Nulty for me to be overly bothered.

{Ed025's Note - it was poor sid a bit like ross himself, the game has evolved a bit since the jimmy case days mate and i think it was frustration on the part of ross, he was miles off the pace tonight and frankly looked like a lost soul out there, i think levy may be getting a phone call shortly..

Maybe you are right ed and maybe i am to caught up in it, but at half time i felt you lads would nick it - and it made me sick. By courage i didn't mean the courage to tackle, fight etc., but the courage to go for the win. I just never worried about losing in the second half, only about drawing.

{Ed025's Note - i felt the same mate, we lost our way and never looked like scoring in the second half..

19 Dec 2016 23:04:40
I also think he's carrying a bit to much weight ed025 he is a big lad but at time looked like he was blowing, he needs more agility where he wants to play.

{Ed025's Note - he does look a pit porky wakka and though he has never had real pace he looked even more lethargic than usual tonight mate..

19 Dec 2016 23:15:36
Hope you get the players that you desire in jan. I want you to be as strong as possible and to still beat you - in games, cup finals etc. Good night gents.

19 Dec 2016 23:33:53
You was the home team and you played like away team in the 2rd half . Koeman knows if you tryed to attack us we can kill you off . thanks for the win.

{Ed025's Note - your welcome..
