I wish I could be most genuinely amused but I can't .
Last years freak season apart , we always lose at Everton , Lukaku always always always scores against us and the manager makes unfathomable substitutions.
What's new ?
It wasn't THAT bad today . We learnt a few things.
Fernandes can't defend but I like him a lot .
I'm thinking (still) that he must play in an offensive midfield position instead of LanZini or Payet in rotation especially away from home.
Bilic seemed to switch Noble and Obiang out of the position today and it didn't work.
Bringing on Zaza when the game was already lost was just wasting games from Zaza's loan agreement , hopefully speeding up his departure .
Our players are not fit enough to play 180 minutes football in a week even though they fucking well should be able too and finally ...
pingpong is no judge of a centre back :i am genuinely amused:
Good post ! totally agree.
The problem with Noble sometimes, especially away from home he runs into the players space who has the ball and brings along a marker to cut down that space . His work ethic is amazing and he was brilliant against Chelsea but he needs to stop being Mother Hen and let Obiang or Kouyate do more when we are building an attack. He used so much energy up today running around that middle instead of sticking close to Barkley which would have been more productive.
