17/02/2023 1comment  |  Jump to last

From the high of the win over Arsenal to the doldrums following a derby defeat, Everton must regroup to face Leeds on Saturday in what is another massive "six-pointer" and they must do it without Dominic Calvert-Lewin. 

Andy, Ell, Lyndon and Paul revisit the loss to Liverpool, look ahead to the game against the Whites from Yorkshire and predict how Sean Dyche might mitigate the absence of his main striker.

Finally, they pick their favourite moments from this fixture from years past.

Good listen Gentlemen.

My views.

Whoever plays up front needs support. They can't do it on their own. Simms had no-one playing off him. I could have been me; there was no follow up. I'd put Gray in that hole. Maybe Maupay. Just give the striker support. Iwobi, get up the pitch like you started doing towards the end of last season.

Defence wise, I like Yerry. I'd play him with fear of him getting injured after 15 minutes!! Our defence gets put under pressure because the midfield isn't pressing and on Monday they were and hitting us wide, a tactic I've noticed a lot of teams doing to us.

But the thing I've been banging on about for years is to get up the pitch. If the defence does, then the midfield is forced to and they get closer to the striker. Try to play the game more in the opponents' half than ours. I might be oversimplifying, but I view football as a simple game often complicated by so called experts.

Mykolenko is a good player. I think he's more of a central defender than a left back back or wing back. And I agree, bring Godfrey back into the team. I think he could be similar to the Ukrainian, but we'd probably have to play a 3 with a strong ball winner in the centre of that. We have to also remember that these players are young. Give them time and patience.

I liked the analysis of the Derby. We didn't play badly. A few made a couple of mistakes that cost us, but it doesn't make them bad players. Football is a game of mistakes. I, like thousands had to face them in the ground on Monday, but result aside, I wasn't too disappointed with the team.

We are at Goodison tomorrow and we take the game and our unrivalled passion to them. Let's hope the team do, because I will. Yet again.
