Great listen as always.

The defence was fine. The difference was that we played on the front foot and the midfield protected them. We were higher up the pitch.

Gueye was terrific in doing what he does. Onana. Well, let's just enjoy him while we can. That boy is going to be some player.

McNeil had something to aim for and Dominic should have got two.

I don't care for managers anymore. Moyes, Martinez, Koeman, him, the other him, the current one or whoever.

The best thing that untied that club on Saturday and scared the shit out of the runaway leaders and their own supporters was the bond between those glorious Evertonians and our players. We are the bond.

Let's take it to Monday. We will be there, the board can do what they like.

Give me a pass.

Another good podcast. Thanks for the effort, guys.

David #2 "Once again,a gang of mates agreeing with each [other]. Yawn."

You won't expect "mates" on here agreeing with that, then!

There you go, Brent, a difference of opinion. A debate perhaps. Maybe the boys on the podcast might engage more interest if they tried that.

We don't always agree, David, but then perhaps birds of a feather flocking together means that we tend to be on the same page. And, to be honest, I haven't seen or heard much disagreement about Saturday's game between folk of a Blue persuasion. It was all pretty good!

I suppose, we could manufacture some fake conflict for you but I don't think it would be very authentic...

With in-depth knowledge of a subject, subjectivity gets lost. Questions or replaced by affirmation and self-congratulation. You all need to keep asking to move on.

I just thought the team looked balanced, for the first time in a long time. And that was only when McNeil went down the left and was prepared to run their right back.

Solid defence, mobile & aggressive midfield, early ball forward, good positional sense and tracking. No fannying around at the back either, lots of tempo, and got the fans involved.

Mykolenko even took a booking for a team mate, which is something that could've happened vs Wolves & Southampton – but the players didn't snuff out the danger by using a tactical foul that other teams would have.

l like the podcasts. I did suggest to Lyndon via the recent survey the idea of having guest presenters to compliment the regular crew.

Then I had a think about some of the regulars. No offence meant, all the below is tongue cheek and apologies if I miss anyone off.

Michael K is the referee.

Rob Halligan sent off after 2 minutes. Straight red.

Brian Murray doesn't make it on the pitch. Red Card in the tunnel.

Dave Abrahams wows them with his knowledge and wisdom of all things Everton – Man of the Match and takes over the game.

Tony Abrahams gets an early yellow and caution for his initial rant about Uncle Bill, but his football knowledge keeps him on the pitch.

John Raftery, Brent and Peter Mills play a steady game with knowledge that is only surpassed by Dave.

Derek Knox gets a yellow for his early performance and comments, but recovers well and stays on the pitch to put in a solid peformance.

I get benched as an unused sub through fear of me descending into reminiscent dribble about the 80s and mentioning Kevin Sheedy too much.

All lighthearted and if I missed anyone, I do apologise. I could go on all day with the characters we know and meet on here.

Keep it going, Lyndon. Appreciated.

The same group of players, inept and serial losers multiple times. A few tweaks and then comfortably contain and beat the up till then the best in the Premier League... How?

Was Lampard on an ego trip? Or did he not understand the basics? Please elaborate.

David, I was unsure about Lampard from the onset and was never really convinced as much as I wanted to be.

He's had 3 cracks of the whip now and I am not sure he will make it as a manager. Tactically naive and falls into the great player, not a manager category for me.

I could be proven wrong and I wish him well as he seems a great person and he certainly took to Everton, but it wasn't good enough.

It seemed to go wrong at Derby and some could say he was unlucky at Chelsea. And let's not underestimate the shit show he was operating under at Goodison. Another lamb on an increasingly growing list.

Hopefully real change will come soon, but right now, I'm just focussed on the pitch.

Anyway, we move on now. We need points, starting Monday.

I think Darren Hind, would make a much better referee, than Michael K, Danny, he’d let the tackles fly right in, and the heavyweight clash would definitely be between Don, Darren and Kieran, so I’ll let Michael, referee that one!
Danny O’Neill

Tony, how could I forget Darren, Kieran and Don?

No cards if Darren is refereeing. Nothing to see here, just get on with it.

I'd like to see that one. It would get tasty.

@Darren, not heard you in a few days. We should still meet up when we are both next at a match. You can give me a proper chest poking and I can buy you a drink.

David @9, this is something we are going to find out over the next few weeks I think, mate?

Dyche proved in one single 90 minutes that the players have simply not been getting organized properly. The players also proved that they can work very hard, follow simple instructions, keep their shape and discipline, and play for 90 minutes.

Hopefully things begin to improve because, if they don't, Saturday has already proved who will be at fault if things don't gradually start to become better now, imo.
