Well I know we were against Man city. But against 10 men for 88 minutes you never would of guessed it. I got to say it we are still missing something. Horrible game to watch. Very Lucky the score was what it was.

I agree, I thought Moyse was on charge.
Koeman went for a draw and he got it, very very ugly but I think it says more about how far behind the top teams we are.
Still, onwards and upwards as 4 points so far is good.

You guys have to be joking. Exciting game and we were up against a top team away and we came away with a point. How many teams will do that this year. We have new players and they will take time to gel. Get real for God's sake.

Come on guys! We were away against City - of course we played to defend and counter-attack. Even Chelsea would have done the same. Fair enough, they had a lot of the ball and we didn't create too many chances but we were never going to be go against City at the Etihad and outplay them. We played really well and got a good result. Shame about Morgan - unfair sending off and that could hurt us. I thought he was immense tonight. Gana, Wayne and especially Mason Holgate were fantastic tonight. We have to be positive at times like this, in spite of the disappointment.

{Ed025's Note - fair point mate..

I don't think you can complain with a point at city, they have some unreal players. I do think we need a big strong target man for these type of games, if you're on the backfoot you need someone to loft the ball up to and hold it up. Calvert Lewin did well for our goal though, showed composure dragging it back and picking out Rooney.

{Ed025's Note - he was good all game gibbo..

Well said mike.

So a 140 million pounds spent and we still have the attitude of we were never going to beat them. Moshiri may as well of only spent 20 million.
And I'm sorry with an extra man on the pitch we didn't look like we were going to do anything. Caution to the wind playing against them yes. But the performance shows we are aren't competing for top 4. Couple more seasons maybe but not this one. Before anyone says oh Mr negative. Be real with yourselves. Definitely a top half finish maybe a very good cup run. Like I said still missing a few things.

We've spent about £125 million, but we also sold our most prolific striker for £75 million, so £50 million net, compared to their £210 million this summer. And they were way ahead of us before that. Get real.

21 Aug 2017 23:02:53
Have to agree here - spent a lot of money to finish top half - if we don't make top 6 I would consider the season a failure.

21 Aug 2017 23:11:19
That was my point as well mowfee82.
Fortune favours the brave and I'm not moaning before I get shot down but we invited all the city pressure.
DCL was fantastic for his age and add some power and he will be something special. Holgate was our man of the match except the mistake but he is learning and improving each game.
Maybe adding mirallas or lookman towards the end to give city something to think about but then again we might of lost the game.

Second league game of the season and already we are being judged of how far we are behind the top teams and how we won't break into the top 4! In the season Leicester won the league, they took 8 points from there first 4 games, Sunderland and Tottenham at home and Stoke and Bournemouth away, now would you have had them down as title winners after these 4 games unbeaten? Probably not but, they won 2 and drew 2 so were unbeaten, we have won 1 and drew 1 after 2 games. Now I ain't saying we are going to win the league, what I am saying is that it is to early to predict a top 4, especially after 2 games. City only lost once at home last season, to eventual champions Chelsea, so going there is never going to be easy, let's leave the predictions until after a good few league games.

21 Aug 2017 23:52:29
We are a long way from being a top four team but the journey has to start somewhere, we are going the right way I am sure.

21 Aug 2017 23:54:11
Mowfee we have just competed against them and come away with a draw. The team that spent what we did and 100m more.

We are getting better and the understanding within the team is getting better.

The players need to believe in themselves a bit more and retention of the ball is so important in these games. However, after 5 competitive games so far AND the preseason we are undefeated. Any team now knows that they have to be on their A game to get something from us. Never mind the other way round.

For me Koeman has got us working like Atletico. They competed with Madrid and Barca. They couldn't compete playing the same football as they were the masters of what they do. This is the same we need our own way of getting results. It got us one tonight. Keep the faith.

I'm very surprised that there is any negativity. City for me are the most talented laden side in the league. and to go there with a new side. no established CF and perform how we did with a net spend if 50m, I thought there were aspects of our game that was immense. Williams had his best game, Rooneys desire, Calvert-lewins composure. very very impressive. yes there may have been mistakes but young mason played a blinder for me. the lad is 20.he cost a couple of million I think. and he didn't look out of place. I for one am a very proud blue. teams will be wary of coming to goodison park. well done boys.

How often do you see 10 men raise there game. We're still learning to gel as a team and got a good draw. Well done lads you impressed me.
