Paul McParlan joins Lyndon and Andy on the 2nd Anniversary edition of the ToffeeWeb Podcast to discuss Everton's creditable 2-2 draw with Tottenham at Goodison Park and the reasons for the Blues' limited but ultimately adequate style of play.

They mull over the prospects of the likes of Dobbin, Chermiti and Patterson, the merits of Ben Godfrey at right-back and then assess the team's chances of getting anything from the Etihad Stadium against the Champions.

I agree with Paul, the two cup games were an opportunity to look at Dobbin and Chermiti. Had Dyche done so and still lost, he would have been castigated by some fans for fielding a weakened team. But sometimes a manager needs to give priority to the longer-term needs of the squad, especially in the situation we find ourselves in.

Like Lyndon, I think Patterson would be better used further up the field as a wingback. As an orthodox full-back, his positioning and decision-making leave a lot to be desired.

On the VAR, the scoring of a goal is no longer the high point of the match-going experience. I cheer for a nanosecond before standing there waiting for the decision. The VAR has killed the joy of watching the game at the top level. If we are relegated, a big plus will be the absence of the VAR in the EFL.
