I've got to try and revert back to a more defensive structure with the team again and try to get those clean sheets that gave us so many wins when I first came here.

From big Sam after he bought a striker and wide man. Hope it doesn't mean we going to sit back and hope for 1-0 wins with 3 defensive midfielders.

Agree2 Disagree2

Not sure why I got thumbs down. Just quoting Sam and that we need to utilise our new players going forward. I'm worried Sam will go back to 3 dm's and my team would be

Martini (unfortunately)
Davies/ Rooney
Siggy (no 10)

With dcl, lookman or basic to come in off the bench.

18 Jan 2018 14:41:10
Geuye not gauge and vlasic not basic. stupid phone.

18 Jan 2018 16:11:20
Having no shots on target in the league in January does not translate to 1-0 wins.

18 Jan 2018 16:57:34
True glenn. But if Sam wants to be even more defensive, we'll be lucky to even leave our own half.

18 Jan 2018 17:16:50
You just cannot be defensive at home to West Brom who will no doubt come for a point anyways, if he does, he is just putting 2 fingers up to the board who have backed him by bringing in 2 attacking players.
Its all well and good being defensive when needed but Saturday is an ideal game to attack and get the confidence in the attacking play to get the win, personally I think he will start with Tosun, Walcott and Bolasie with Sigs, Rooney and Gueye behind them and we will win comfortably 4 nil.

18 Jan 2018 18:08:06
Sam's job is done got us safe now he should try something he never done and play attacking football.

18 Jan 2018 18:16:51
I hope so blue but 4-0 after 4 games without a shot on target is bit optimistic. Going for 2-1 myself.

18 Jan 2018 19:53:55
might wish to tighten up again so as to free walcot and Tosun to have a go, for me at home I would have a 3 of Bolasie (left) Tosun and Walcott (right) . I would also replace Martina at LB with my GrandSon (Liverpool Supporter) .

18 Jan 2018 20:18:16
So what we are predicting is that Sam will pick a side that looks nothing like any side he has picked for us before. That side will gel immediately and overwhelm a West Brom team whose improving performances have culminated in a first confidence boosting win under Pardew last week at the same time as we were losing 4-0. What odds do you think I should take about that coming off?

{Ed025's Note - im hoping that sam is talking about shoring us up defensively and with the new guys up top have an attacking threat playing on the counter glen..

18 Jan 2018 20:59:44
So we are hoping to pinch 1-0. Far cry from 4-0.

18 Jan 2018 21:41:54
I'm still going for 4 nil Glennk, the first win under Pardew in how many attempts? Yes we may not have had an attempt on target in January as you say but then again that can't be true as I'm sure we scored at Anfield on 5th January but I'm not here to pick holes in your 'facts'
West Brom are piss poor and we should be putting them to the sword and with the attacking players at our disposal we can do that, so let's set the negativity to one side and be optimistic for a change, its West Brom for Christ sake not Barcelona!
4 nil to Everton, Tosun gets the first, Walcott a brace, Sigs with a 30 yarder to make it 4 nil with 5 minutes to play.

18 Jan 2018 21:55:58
Just noticed you state no shots on target in the league Glennk so apologies, the rest I stand by.

18 Jan 2018 23:02:29
Don't understand how stating facts is negativity. I would be delighted to see free flowing football culminating in a 4-0 win. However, evidence based optimism is by far the best sort.

19 Jan 2018 06:26:47
Fact is our attacking players are much better than West Brom and if we use the pace at our disposal we will hurt them as they have nobody at the back that has pace.
I just feel after the performance or should I say non performance last week the players will be wanting to put on a display and show that they can play football and we don't need to be boring, another way of looking at this game is how poor we were against West Brom boxing day and they couldn't score then, nothing has changed for them, us on the other hand, we have a proper centre forward and another player as well as Bolasie who can run at you with pace in Theo.

19 Jan 2018 08:29:14
The evidence for this attacking cornucopia being the torrent of shots we rain in on goal and not the fact that last time we scored the most advanced player in the move was a centre back. Worry not though we've dropped the indisciplined maverick.

19 Jan 2018 14:45:10
Im sure the commentators said that the most successful passes at half time (can't remember the game but a few weeks ago) by an Everton player was Pickford. Anti football
Hope this weekend is a shot in the arm and stuffs my negativity for B S. dire footy down my throat.
