Jay seems totally lost imo
Has been every game he's started.

He isn't a starter, he's an impact sub. But looks like Barnes is being rested for the next game and with Vydra going, he's our only choice unless we went 4-5-1.

This is some seriously poor football.

Pope’s been on his arse twice and his kicking is atrocious.

It’s still 0-0 though so that’s a bonus.

I reckon the ref realised it should have been goal kick and didn't want to bring the wrath of Ancelotti

We have been time wasting since the first minute. Totally deserved the ref blowing and not allowing the corner. Tarks has been excellent and Pope except his kicking. Ok defensively overall, an absolute shambles with the ball. Almost getting unwatchable at times this season. Disgusting football but I guess we'll all take it if we get a result. Better get something, can't take watching this rubbish and losing.

If we can get Dwight into a bit of space for some crosses, I honestly reckon we can do em.
They're really dodgy at the back.

That first save from Pope was brilliant, the Brian Blessed impersonator behind the commentator having a moan every minute has kept me entertained, niggly game, we're well in it and not 3 down or owt although Everton could be 2 or 3 up on another day, some good moments, some lethargic, Corks run his socks off, McNeil tracking back his man too, defence pretty good and strong, too much space for them as they run through the middle, looking forward to second half and hope to see Barnes hassling them at some point.

Solid half. Think we've pressed well.

Pope made some excellent saves so far.

Just need to keep it tight and frustrate them.

We are the masters of defending and keeping teams at a safe (ish) distance and defending is one of the artforms of football. So not really "non Football"

Sadly, we possess very little of the other artforms that make up the whole.That's why we are not very attractive to watch.

Effective yes, attractive, no !!!

As usual, we need to be brave and play the ball on the deck, it's not as if booting it long eases the pressure. As pleasing as it is, we can't keep stealing 3 its, sometime we are going to have to go out and earn it. Hopefully today.
The first 5 mins will tell the tale.

Watching that first half answers all the question around why we don't sell out at home, and why away attendances are dwindling.
Mindnumbingly boring, turgid stuff. 0 entertainment IMO, and entertainment is what folk spend their hard earned coin on.

5 years ago, fair enough. But it's like he doesn't support signing players with technical ability and always plans this route, regardless of who he has available. We aren't evolving at all and one would surely expect us to be playing better football than when we were in the Championship.

I can definitely see attendances dropping in the near future even if we stay up, £40 for pure rugged defending is a **** take

I dont think he can play in a 2, or centrally. Best on left of a 3. His goal to minutes ratio is fine, but it's mainly been as we are pelting the box in the latter stages

Hmm, try signing some then
