If what you are all saying is that this the first game and all the new players will take time to gel in, if this is the case then why play them in such an important first round of a knock out competition, I am sure we are all very aware that this is the first game and will in time get better but it a European game not a friendly. Why is it going to be any easier next week if he plays the same team, they looked far fitter and quicker than us last night, it's an opinion and that is what this site is all about.

Why would RK not play them together? This is effectively still preseason for us and the fact that these games are competitive is a bonus as the players will feel pressure and be challenged. The team we played have already played 5 or so competitive matches so naturally they will be more match fit. The fact that they played two walls of 5, as someone previously mentioned, is always going to be tough to break down. These new lads have only been around 2weeks tops, give them a chance!

Uran. You're making no sense. Whatever team we put out was a new team. You do realise we have signed like 5 new players and sold Lukaku.

What's so difficult about this? We played a team that in the throws of a season we would beat comfortably. But at the start of a season the lack of sharpness is a leveller. So 1-0 is pretty much a good result. We've one without conceding at home. We all know enough about football to understand that's a good score line to take to their place. Score one on the break and then they need to score three. I can't see them doing that. Can we stop worrying please.

You all sound very confident, what makes you think from that performance we are going to win over there, they had more chances to win the game last night, this is a knock stage, all I am saying if we play the same team the same way I don't gives much hope, I hope I am wrong.

28 Jul 2017 13:10:58
The difference is that we will have a weeks extra match fitness and we will know what to expect from them. We also have a far better team.

28 Jul 2017 13:14:34
They didn't have more chances than us, yes it wasnt a great performance but a shining Light was Sandro.

28 Jul 2017 13:18:13
They wer super defensive last night uran and they cnt do that next week so there will be more space for sandro and i can c us picking them off on the break mate c'mon have a bit of faith anyone would think we just been beat.

I think we'll be capable of scoring there regardless. I also think he needs to start with Ramirez. Calvert-Lewis was ok but Ramirez looks sharper.

I sincerely hope I am wrong with my opinion and you all correct, I really mean that, just that on the evidence of last night I can't see it, maybe I been a bit harsh, I am not dull and gloom on our future, just that we have know this game was coming up and there should be no excuses over the fitness levels going into a European knock out first round game.

Uran, based on your analysis there should also have been no excuse to only win 2-1 against a team from Kenya. The simple fact is we need to gain fitness and sharpness, with so many new players it is inevitable it will take a few games for the players to gel, to learn who makes runs and where etc.
We got the win, that's all that matters.

Think of it this way. when have Everton ever impressed in pre-season. I can't remember the last time. but apart from the off blip here and there. they have always improved. new starters last night were klaasen, Rooney, Keane, Martina, Sandro etc.

It takes time for a new group of players to get an understanding. never mind Match sharpness.1-0 was not great But for next week, they will have had more time to improve their understanding, and I'm sure they are their own worst critics. chill and see what develops.

I hope we do improve are fitness and sharpnessand and hope that They don't improves on their levels.
