I as at Goodison last night and will add a few observations that I picked up that just does not show up in the hilights later and probs why some have difference of opinions on here.

Firstly Coleman, the guy never stopped running and made some great overlapping runs along with defending well, my joint man of the match along with Walcott, even without Walcott goals, he made some great runs and brought people into play, great signing.

Davies has all the talent in the world, Sadly again last night, he seems to be missing something and nowhere near the player he was last season, maybe it's time to give Beningame a run out there.

Once Everton scored, the confidence and touch play and movement was great, once Leicester scored, you could see sheer panic set in, mishit clearances, not looking to play a simple pass, absolute no composure.

Now I am not a great fan of Schnids or Williams, however once they both came on we seemed to have steadied the ship and not as much panic.

Finally I have touched on this a few times, Niasse is not as effective when he starts a game, never stopped harrying their defence but squandered two great chances, I would use Niasse from the bench.

Once Tuson gets going along with Walcott and Coleman will be great, need to balance this with Bolasie on the left and I Think we will be fine for the remainder of the season.

Really good read Baz.

The only thing I'd say about Davies is he is the squad for one game then out. You need a run of games plus he's still really, really, really, really young.

He made some great runs in forward positions and supported Coleman and Walcott well.

He's very much a number 8 but it'll take a few years to learn his trade in that position.

Baningami is a different type of midfielder. More a Snids/ Gana. Going forward they don't do the same as Tom and instead hold position and Cover the back four.

I agree with all of that post Baz mate especially on Davis he needs a spell back with the under 23s to learn his trade, good post.

Davies has a great engine and legs. He was closing down and harrying all the time. Same as Niasse. But Davies is like mentioned above. very very very young. Yes he does go missing a bit. but he is being given some game time and will only get better. Baningeme is also a great prospect. I would imagine both will develop into fine first team players.

Have to agree with blue John regards Davies. He needs a run of games, we have chopped too many times.
Why change a winning team?
Plus although he wasn't brilliant, he was miles better than Schneiderlin has been.

I agree with the harrying of players degsy. It was refreshing to see us defending from the front. I bet we had more tackles and won possession in their half last night than any other game this season. It makes a massive difference.

I can remember a Walcott chance and the one on one from Niasse in the first half to begin with.

More of the same for me!

Hadn't Davies been injured recently?

I wasn't at the game but watched it. And like the last 10 home games, when something goes wrong the stadium freaks out and you can feel that sat at home. Must be very noticeable live.

I'm not sure if it's a chicken and egg situation but the atmosphere of most games has been bad. Won't be players make the atmosphere or the fans over reactions put the fear in the players?

Great result and certainly a much better performance than I was expecting. Think the Gooners are there for the taking Saturday.
