Everton have got this single thread lark pretty much sewn up so come on Yeedo's, let's keep one of our own! One was started recently but feck knows what happened to it however, if the interest is there I'll try and keep this up where possible.

Q - Can we really challenge the top 4?

The Players...

Robinson - Overrated?
Chimbonda - What's the latest?
Zokora - Will this be his season?
Jenus - Is the best yet to come?
Berbatov - Staying or going?
Keane - ...or Defoe?
Malbranque - Happy to keep him?
Defoe - What now?
Taarabt - Opinions?
Dawson - Improving?
Huddlestone - A future star?
Lennon - On the left?
King - Can he remain injury free?
Bale - Ready for the big time?

Just a few questions to get this going but let's not forget our leader, Martin Jol.. Is he the man to continue?

This is a public forum and I fully expected to see some brutal p taking by opposition fans on here but wishing death on someone, anyone, because of a football result? You need to take a good long look at yourself terimon.

Yes,frustrating night,credit to them for getting the result but ffs couldn't watch Italian football if they paid me,always pushing the ref to the limit with cynical foul after foul especially when they got in front but you've got to finish teams off when you're on top,thats becoming a bit of a worry,feels crap but not the end of the world if we don't let it derail the season,need to pick ourselves up for sunday and if we can will look in a strong position for Top 4 and maybe we can now have a go at the FA cup.

Worth remembering that Juventus were odds on to qualify before the first leg, and still only 2/1 best before last night. We weren't even odds on to get out of the group back in September, evidence that we haven't had an easy draw at any stage.

Personally I'd rather lose games than have to watch my team cynically assaulting the opposition and sharing the yellows between them - how they ended the night with 11 men on the pitch is a mystery. I wonder how many of Kane, Son and Alli will be fit enough to play on Sunday - pretty sure it'll be a busy morning in the treatment room.

For 6 days only......ufcdan "At least we're still in the Champions league"....

Once again Pochettio got his tactics wrong.
Second time this season he hasn't reacted to opposing manager's changes.
Dyche changed two players and starting to play balls over the top, they scored and were unlucky not to win.
Juventus did similar  last night,I assume he thinks whatever the opposition do it wont affect his attack mind set.
That may be all very well but to bring on teacher's pet Lame Ella who is ineffectual and watched inactive when
Arry hit the post(would Deli have reacted differently?)was stupid.
Llorente on for Dier should have been the call, and if Dele had to be removed then Moura would have been infinitely better.

Bitterly disappointing not helped by the ar.ehole Chiellini's comments but then I guess he doesn't realise how close
he came to be eliminated and lucky to be in next round.
Report hippie March 8, 2018 10:39 AM GMT
TheAnorak, you and I would call it cynical but Juventus call it experienced.

Chiellini may lack humility (how many finals have they lost - 7?) but there's truth in his words. They knew Dybala and Higuain were good enough to target the defence until it eventually cracked and then they shut up shop. The fact we want to make a teenager our first choice left back shows we agree there is a vulnerability there. We've come to expect Lamela to miss chances like he had to get us back into the game and did anyone honestly believe Llorente was a better solution than Lucas?

Last season was a humiliating group stage exit, this season was naivety. Anyone who's made a poker tournament final table knows the value of experience and we've gained some more. Onwards and upwards.

more absolute nonsense from samuel today. i suppose you can understand him and his colleagues must have been bursting with frustration not being able to have a proper pop at us for a few months. however comparing us to ipswich and david ferrer are not exactly the best analogies to say the least. he conveniently fails to mention ipswich won the cup and the uefa cup during their golden era and as for ferrer a decent clay courter but doubt even his best mate thought he was ever likely to win the french open with rafael nadal blocking the way

don't remember all this criticism of liverpool when their best chance of a trophy disappeared in utterly shambolic fashion with a home defeat against west brom of all teams

in the cold light of day it was a devilishly difficult draw to follow on from tough group draw. avoid them or bayern and we'd have cruised into the last 8. we missed out narrowly to one of the top 5 teams in europe having dominated both games. they are a streetwise outfit not to averse to the dark arts when required. last year we went out getting annihilated 2-1 by monaco. it's a difficult difficult competion at the sharp end. fine margins and a bit of luck the difference in many ties

Report jed.davison March 16, 2018 8:43 AM GMT
Re: Sanchez, I don't understand the criticism at all - he's a young boy and it's his first season in the Premier League. Given the difficulty in identifying players in Holland who may be able to cope at the higher level, I think he has done fantastically well, especially as it was probably not Pochettino's original plan for him to have so much gametime this season.

From Anorak's list of potential Alderweireld replacements, I think Mawson is the pick. And his last point is vital - Pochettino has strong form for improving improvable defenders, as Walker and Rose's experiences prove so that should make Spurs a favoured destination for such players as the ones Anorak lists. I can't see how Alderweireld is at Spurs next season btw.

First-choice team tomorrow I would have thought. I'm actually quite excited to watch this team without Kane in it, not because I don't rate him of course, but I reckon we will be equally strong with Son given more responsibility and Lamela on the pitch.

Great double-save from Vorm to deny any possible issues; otherwise a stroll in the park. Sissoko does get in some good positions but never looks comfortable in the final moment of a play. It's a shame really because he does look like he has something at times. I think Erikson's second goal was a little fortunate too as I can't see too many keepers letting that one slip through their fingers. Was Son's goal a goal? 50/50 for me, not clear cut at all and possibly the right decision, but no complaints. Was on over 4.5 at HT but never looked like happening. BT need to work on their sync issues; fixed just before K/O... thankfully.

When Sissoko had the ball were the crowd shouting shoot, or booing? At one point when he appeared to be lining one up, I think I could see people over near the corner flag taking cover.

Nice to see Lamela discovering his right foot but how poor was Swansea's keeper for the 2ndvand 3rd goals?

KKD, it was shoot. he remains a bit of a figure of fun notwithstanding he played pretty well today but never gonna be enough to play in an advanced position for a team as good as we are and want to be

about as comfortable as it gets away from home in a big cup tie. could have had any number of goals 2nd half with better final pass or shot
