Win ugly, that’ll do.
My SIL ( a Brighton fan) went, he said LFC very casual but good defensively and lucky with the penalty ( he would say that )
Anyway 3 points and back to winning ways. :D Ken

Re The Bielsa, Leeds, spying episode.

Seeing as this looks as though sportsmanship no longer applies, ought it not be permissible to put the away team dressing room under surveillance to listen in to, and watch, preparations during the pre-match and half time periods?
That is, if it's not already normal to do this.
I haven't been keeping up with the times.

Regards

From the European Club Footballing Landscape 2018 UEFA Report.

Most of the figures relate to the 2016 financial year.

Poor defensively against Palace but very good fight back spirit.
Another option for fullback sidelined ( Milner )
Mo needs to watch himself, that dive was pathetic yesterday.
Credit to the much maligned Henderson, he was our best player.
Three points but three poor goals conceded , I hope that doesn’t matter later in the season.

Really good three points against Palace they will take points off good sides. I like Milner but he was raped by Zahah. We were robbed of a penalty at 0-0. We need Gomez and Alexander Arnold back also I can't wait for the Ox to come back.

A good result for the reds against Palace, they have always been a tough team for us over the years. Liverpool would've most probably lost this fixture in the past. :wink:

Impossible to overestimate the importance of BT and Sky for the financial performance of the clubs.

Broadcasting accounts for 75.1% of Everton's revenue, and 48.9% of Liverpool's.

I recall the 1965 Cup winning side contained 7 English and 4 Scots players with a Scot and an Englishman as the opposing Managers.

Watching Arsenal v MUFC in the Cup, good game.
United can take off Lukaku and Sanchez and sub them with Rashford and Martial.
We don’t have that option in respect of attacking goal scorers . Ings has gone, Solanke gone we are left with Sturridge and Origi :roll:
Hopefully our Troika can keep fit and maintain form otherwise we are stuffed. :wink: Ken

Who can Make a team up of lads with double barrelled names from the Prem?
We’ve got Alexander Arnold and Oxlade Chamberlain
EFC have Calvin Lewin
Chelsea have Loftus Cheek and Hudson Odoi
Arsenal have Maitand Niles

Any others, I can’t think of a goalie.

Not double barreled but will Van Der Saar do - mind you, think you're after current players really?

No not really those Bernie or the Koreans .
I can think of the Wolves lad Gibbs White and there was a Mendes Laing at Cardiff but not sure if he’s still there.
You get my drift, they have to be double barrelled names, what the Aussies call 2 Dads :lol: Ken

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, James Ward- Prowse & Kyle Walker-Peters are three I can think of.

WTF Robbo :shock: K

That unnecessary tackle cost us 2 points but have to say we were pretty clueless trying to break down a well organised defence. I haven’t yet seen the merit in Keita, he loses the ball to easily. Mo and Bobby had off nights and that keeper gives me palpitations. :D Ken

Great shame we didn't fully capitalise on City's slip up but, taking the positive - we're 1 more point ahead of them than before that round of games.

As they say in Tesco - every little helps.

A bit concerning is the lack of game changers up front to bring on as subs when things need changing.
When you think of City or Uniteds bench, attacking wise, you realise Sturridge and Lallana can’t cut it anymore.

Finally Markovich is off the books as he signs for Fulham until the end of the season.
His contract was up this Summer . Amazingly still only 24 , he seems to have been around for much longer. Good luck to the lad.

Well that was pretty ordinary. What’s wrong with Firmino, his touch has totally gone?
Even Mo got into positions easier than he scored from last season.
Very poor in midfield, how missed was Wijnaldum, our most consistent player this season?
Matip thinks he’s Hansen or Beckenbaur, he’s not ! Keita still disappoints but at least he put a shift in last night.
Relying on those across the Park to get a result tomorrow night, Up the Toffees ! :lol: Ken

Straightforward game on paper. On grass I was relieved, but far from happy, with the draw. Hammers did well to frustrate and looked more likely to win. Keita very disappointing (not just the goal). Fabianski was like fly paper - everything just stuck to him. We've got to be able to win games like this to challenge for the title. Bluenoses will be rubbing their hands in delight at the prospect of losing to Citeh on Wednesday.

Bernie, Fabianski had a few tame shots to stop and looked comfortable on crosses.
I liked that he caught the ball instead of punching or parrying it away . Our fellah still worries me, very casual at times.

He'll need to weigh in a few Henry.
Moreno and Sturridge will leave for free.

Lovren., Lallana can go for me. K
