Now it gets interesting. We will know what kind of manager Koeman is in the next week or so. Davies and Niasse saved his bacon. I think he would have been out of the door if we had been beaten 1-0 today. We will see if he has learnt anything from today. He should have already learnt that we can't play 4 slow no. 10s. It will also be interesting to see if he can swallow his pride and start Niasse in the next PL game. If he starts with the same team on Thurs as today then I will happily give him a lift to the airport myself.

However so made up for Niasse. He's become a cult hero because he's the underdog, and because he is a model professional with a great attitude when faced with a difficult situation.

Morning Ed I see in the rags today it's being reported that Everton made a ยฃ66 million pound offer to Costa to join us, if that is correct, surely that proves that the board was prepared to back R K in the window to the hilt and all the ill feeling that's been going was totally unfounded, COYB for a win today cheers.

Koeman you have lost the plot mate. Rooney (I apologise Wayne) was everywhere, the thing is when he got the ball where was the support or target. Midfielders with no pace, a team sitting so deep it was virtual capitulation, someone has to take the hit. This is the worse Everton side I have seen for years. So what has happened.

you see spurs have been linked with 2 barkley-esque players this week alone would love to be a fly on the wall at his contract offer. thing is it will be a clear message to ross that any idea of a big contract is clearly gone. there is no definitive answer to what's wrong koeman's tactics and formations are wrong the players he picks and why he picks them is a mystery. for the life of me still don't know why we bought williams, keane is suffering from having an unsettled defence, but with williams keane and jags you just can't play a back 3 against good players they're just not quick enough. the board and koeman knew we needed another defender but didn't get one. the midfield is another hotspot both gana and morgan are too similar and rooney is filling there postions as the game wears on, but neither of them push forward. we have pace and defenders coming back from injury would we be in this position if seamus and bolasie were playing probs not. we have no clear leader on the pitch this maybe due to language barriers i don't know. imo koeman has forgotten the most fundamental thing in football making 11 guys play as a team cause a team they are not currently. whole thing is a nightmare, but if koeman wants us to play high tempo football like southampton did then he is going to have to start playing a more youthful 11 cause the current 11 are a joke.

Liverpool fan an here, I don't think the team is hat bad it's just josh key components, pace and a target man a lot of players were purchased and will need ti gel. I thought bo the players are good players maybe they're struggling with the system.

We sit in 18th on 4 points played five won 1 but from us in 18th up to fifth place is only four points in it all on the same number of games so if a few other results go our way and we win a few games over the next five then we can fly up the table.

Believable14 4Unbelievable

17 Sep 2017 23:10:37
I totally agree with you.
I think we played better today gutted with the result give it time we will get there get behind manager and team yes we have had a rough ride lately to say the least. Be patient things will start to pick up now. This is the manager who will win us things this is the manager we wanted give him time fellow blues before we bully him out. COYB.

If memory serves, and I am sure there are plenty on here that know better, 2016 season had we played the top 4 first we would have had 3 points. Spurs 1, Man City 1, Chelsea 0, and Man U 1.
So we have a 2 point deficit on 2016 which looks a lot worse due to them being in our first 5 fixtures. Yes we look disjointed with no pace and no target man, however we did look yesterday to have something about us.
Confidence is a major factor in winning games so hopefully if we can put on a show in our next 2 games and actually manage to score a goal or two, we will see the team regain a spirit fitting of our great club. Keep the faith.

Brilliant post chalkie. What I've been trying to say with my posts lately. Yours sums it up better there. Puts a different spin on things. The next 5 games will tell a lot how the season will go imho.

Out the first 5 league games 2 were at home, Stoke and Spuds. In the next 7 games 6 are at home. It will have to help, provided the crowd don't get on the players back too much. If the terrible start continues with all them games at home Koeman is a goner.

I'm one that is sticking up for him but in the next 7 games that have League cup, Europe games along with the Premiership games, if we don't get decent results and performances Koeman will be under serious pressure.

Dare I say it balotelli looked good on a free ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ We need a presence up front Rooney turns back too many times and lost the ball far too much today think the team would be better without him in it.

Believable8 7Unbelievable

17 Sep 2017 21:55:52
Eddy Rooney was one of our best players today by far problem is he is turning back as there is nobody in front of him to play it into. In my opinion Rooney is best played just behind the striker benteke would have been an ideal target man for a season or two or giroud problem is we miss that target man and again today it showed.

{Ed025's Note - he gave the ball away too much for me keato and slowed the game down too much, it seems like everything goes through him and others are overlooked for his sake, just my opinion though mate..

Rooney was one of our better players today, it's jags and williams that worried me today and it's nothing to do with there pace.

I doubt it's true. If you google 'Koeman Ellesmere Port' (where it's supposed to have happened) there's another identical rumour from June last year. Just twitter nonsense until it's reported by reputable newspapers.

We are in serious trouble. Our last three games combined. Everton 32 shots for 4 on target, opposition 52 shots for for 21 on target. 8 goals to Nil. Defending is shot, midfield is shot, and poor old Sandro and Dominic can't get into the game. We could have Messi up front and we would still. be putrid. No pace, no creativity, no game plan, no nothing. Did we just buy the Swansea sigurddson or the Tottenham one.

Believable15 4Unbelievable

koeman is a flawed tactician there can be no doubt, he plays att formations when he should be more balanced and tinkers too much when he should play to his / players strengths. more over he makes the same mistakes in formations and personal week in week out. however let's be honest he isn't telling those players go out and sit deep and just let teams attack you. (well i hope not) this is the fault of the players not having a clear leader on the pitch and not having the drive or inspiration to make things happen. we are playing formations for whatever reason that our current squad can't play. so koeman needs to address that and quick and those players need to have a word with themselves cause it is just not good enough. don't think koemans job is under threat just yet.

{Ed025's Note - the play is far too slow floats and a lot of that seems to revolve around rooney, the sideways passing, then back, then a corner for us that ends up back to our keeper its dire to watch, im not blaming it all on wayne but united played like that last season, im not looking for a scapegoat here just looking for a reason why we are so poor mate..

Agree5 0Disagree

15 Sep 2017 06:16:19
Maybe Wayne's problem with sideways passing is because he likes a bit on the side. I'll get my coat haha.

Agree1 1Disagree

15 Sep 2017 00:36:09
Nail. Head. 025. Rooney is the reason I stopped watching England for that exact reason.

{Ed025's Note - its not just wayne though benny, there is no one grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck and we dont seem to have a leader, the players are just going through the motions and its up to koeman to get it sorted or we will have to find someone who will mate..

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Sep 2017 08:54:34
There are good players there, RK simply needs to acknowledge that he can't play all his favourite individuals. Williams not good enough imo and should be dropped for jags or bring browning back. Kenny deserves a chance. Lookman and davies need a crack imo and I'd go 4-4-2 with Calvert- lewin along side Rooney or dare I say niasse or mirrallas. The benefit of playing Rooney imo is that he could drop back into midfield if necessary if we needed to shore up. plus he works harder than mirrallas and I think has more savvy than both other options. Where do we stand on bringing players like browning or dowell back?

{Ed025's Note - im not sure jcl but they are not the answer anyway, we can all see the problems which is all the players are too similar, we have a plethora of No 10,s who all have limited pace and no target man to hit, our defence is very static and lacks not only confidence but leadership and it leaves us with a scenario of a team who are shipping goals and not creating chances, the most worrying aspect for me is the lack of passion and how we are second best in challenges and koeman needs to step up to the plate, dropping rooney and schneiderlin would be a start as they tend to slow the play more than most imo but im sure other posters will have there own ideas on how to fix things mate..

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Sep 2017 09:20:16
Ed, I agree with mist, simply trying to think of alternatives with squad available. for example this weekend I'd play 4-4-2. Starting at top, I'd play Calvert-lewin and Rooney ( purely because mirrallas never tracks back, and niasse would get slated if we got battered. wouldn't be fair to him) . In midfield I'd go with Gana and sigurdson with lookman and mirallas on flanks. Back four would be baines jags, Keane and Kenny (baptism of fire)

We say no leadership and yet we have Man U and Englands captain, wales captain, Ajax captain as well as our own captain. So leadership is not something we should be lacking - but unfortunately, just like motivation, we are.
We need an injection of pace somewhere and last night, with Holgate and Baines we had zero forward movement. Even Baines has lost that ability to pass players and get crosses in - we constantly take easy option.

For me, and being a little radical because something different is clearly required, I would go 3-5-2

Baines, Keane, Holgate
Cuco, Davies, Gueye, Kenny
DCL. Sandro or Rooney

Bit more pace at back. Jags and Williams make everyone nervous so let Keane take responsibility. Baines not got the pace to get past people anymore but gives us balance with a left foot

And most of all we may get some enthusiasm

It won't happen, but,

Agree2 3Disagree

15 Sep 2017 20:16:31
I don't get this obsession with 2 holding midfielders either, I'm sure Gueye is good enough to handle the role on his own. We could then play Sigurdsson/ Klassen/ Davies in a deep playmaking role, driving through the middle, with Rooney/ Sigurdsson behind the striker, then Lookman or Bolasie (on his return) on the left and Vlasic/ Mirallas on the right providing pace on the wings. Schneiderlin could rotate with Gueye. Can't be any worse than the last 2 games. We've shopped 6 goals in 2 games so it's not like the defence is any better with 2 midfielders in front of them.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Sep 2017 22:31:35
Spot on gibbons. I think I'm there or there abouts with you on my selection. I think Gana is man for holding role along side sigurdson. and lookman HAS to be given a crack!

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Sep 2017 01:29:22
Bad team that dave.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Sep 2017 08:48:02
Wouldn't disagree Dunc. Problem is we have tried virtually everything else and nothing works.
Trying to be positive, when we get Yannick, Mori and Seamus back maybe we have a 'first 11' because that is what we desperately need - some stability, a formation that suits US and not changing every week because of who we play. Let them worry about us

So once the three are back;

Seamus Keane Mori Baines
Vlasic. Sig. Bolasie
Ramirez. Rooney or DCL

Bench of Lookman, Holgate, Schneiderlin, klaasen, Niasse, Davies.

Agree2 1Disagree

17 Sep 2017 01:29:04
We are missing a centre forward and 2 fast wingers yannicks not back till January, I'm afraid we will be mid table at best by then we are to mobile no1 from midfield runs at the opposition and creates chances we need Ross if you ask me.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Sep 2017 11:07:55
Koeman's insistance on Rooney must play causes problems. Rooney playing means other major signings are out of position. Siguurdson needs to play through the middle. My Team would be G/ K not bothered who, Holgate, Keane, Jags/ Williams (Funes when fit)
Kenny RWB, Baines LWB (need a replacement badly) , Gana, Mirralas Siguurdson Lookman, Sandro/ CLW/ Klaason.
