Plenty of gallows humour as Adam, Andy and Lyndon reel from Everton's abject display against Arsenal at Goodison Park last Sunday and ponder where it leaves the team.

They also discuss the potential takeover by 777 Partners before looking ahead to a hugely important Premier League fixture at Brentford and the possibly unwanted League Cup tie at Villa Park that follows in midweek.

The darkest hour comes before the dawn. If we are to turn our season around, the recovery must begin on Saturday and be sustained in the following two home games. Do that and the whole narrative around the club will become more positive. The alternative of a truly depressing October doesn't bear thinking about.

In the circumstances the Villa game is the least of the priorities though it is an opportunity for the fringe players to stake a claim for a place in the starting eleven. I imagine Emery will likewise rest many of his first sixteen so it might be their reserves versus our reserves. We will have over 4,000 in the North Stand. We could produce a surprise result in that game.

When you read the words "a possibly unwanted League Cup tie, it makes Everton sound like one of those big clubs, with bigger fish to fry. I wonder if that League Cup tie was unwanted all those years ago against Oxford Utd, because it was a definite banana skin?

Winning breeds confidence, and every single cup tie should be a big game, especially for a club like Everton, whose fall from grace has definitely not been helped by only really concentrating on league games since Kenwright got his measly paws into our once great club.

28 years and counting is definitely the epitaph of a fraud who actually talked about good times.

I'm with you, Tony. I want to win the League Cup and I hope Everton approach it that way.

To be fair, I don't think relegation was ever a serious threat in 1984. This season, it is staring us in the face unless we can start winning some points in the next couple of weeks.

There have been a few times in the last 10 years or so when it might have been sensible to prioritise the cups over the league. Regrettably this is not one of them.

Tony, I totally agree.

We should be looking to win every game and think big.

I believe we have the manager and the playing staff to see big improvements this season as long as we get rid of the evil duo and get some proper governance in.
