In the early game, Manchester City scrapped a win in the 97th minute after Charlie Daniels fired in a scorcher to give Bournemouth the lead.
Newcastle won their first match since returning to the Premier League, beating Slaven Bilic's West Ham side 3-0 and increasing pressure on the beleaguered manager.

They're clearly not petrified of an overrated City side.

City just scored.

Only positive is that little shit Sterling got sent off!

I would rather watch Everton get beat 4-3 than win 1-0.

He added 5 minutes and they scored in 97 minutes. Still playing after 100 minutes, some of which was the sending off.
Can't let them have all that space. Too dangerous attacking you.

That hardly changes the point.
We are generally gutless and petrified against teams like Man City and we were gutless on Monday... And we'll probably be gutless tomorrow.

Guardiola is also a pretender. How can he justify not starting Aguero?
Sterling is a waste of space despite saving City again. His overall contribution besides the goal was as poor as Lukaku's ever was for Everton but a goal always save your blushes.
I would sign Josh King right now. I would take a 1-0 win anyday rather than any loss!!!!

I hate Lee Mason personally.

Bournemouth did give Man City a "good" game. That's one point. But they ended up pointless. That's the other point. Failed to defend their point.

Inter was a nightmare and they sacked him after he had started to get them playing. Palace are set up for Allardyce football and De Boer needs time to get new players in and get them playing his way.

Bournemouth had a point, went toe to toe with City and were bested in the last seconds by a deflected goal. They dropped one point.
Our football so far has been very poor, very difficult to watch. I'm not going to get excited by tough defensive performances. That's mid table stuff. We have no attacking philosophy. We don't get the fullbacks forward, we don't play it wide, we don't play quick passing attacking football.
So far or football consists of slow passing around midfield and back to defense, then usually a hoof forward. Our goal on Thursday didn't come from any passing or build up play. It was a hopeful shot from more that 50 yards away that while brilliant to see go in, is one in a hundred. And tomorrow I expect to see more of the same, a lot of defending and hoofing balls up top into the channels to a single Everton player, counting on mistakes from the opposition. That's nowhere near good enough.

Yes, they're at home, and we should expect a different Everton at home, but it's been hard under Koeman to see a soul or theme to our team sadly, even now we have better players. Here's hoping we come good one day!

I think someone once said on ToffeeWeb he would be out before Christmas, I laughed at that, now maybe it doesn't seem so absurd.
41 Posted 27/08/2017 at 19:41:58
Koeman takes the latter approach, which is good as we have no sprinters in the team at present. Poor today but I was not expecting any points to come our way.
42 Posted 27/08/2017 at 19:55:07
Haven't you seen his dismal away record since becoming our manager? His miserable demeanour mirrors his miserable tactics and miserable football.
