Good pod - thank you.

I'm only just about getting over the Anfield derby because there's nothing else to be done: the anger and annoyance can only gnaw away for so long before it becomes unhealthy.

What's interesting is how quickly the pod becomes out of date in Everton world given the talk of possible 12 point penalty. There's a separate thread about that as well as Bill so I'll keep my thoughts to the derby.

Aside from the ref (awful) and Young (he's cost us about 3-4 goals and now a red card; he's looking like a terrible signing so far) then:

Calvert-Lewin wasn't great. We needed him to hold the ball up but Van Dijk got the better of him

Doucouré's execution was particularly poor.

Garner (who I'm a big fan of) was poor in possession (as was noted on the pod – there were passes on that he just didn't make – and they were relatively simple passes).

Harrison didn't offer much but in fairness (and this counts for McNeil too) we have to give options for the wide players. Even if they don't pass infield to retain possession, at least they can feint to do so and knock it and run etc. However, either way, Harrison & McNeil weren't at their best.

Tarkowski got a yellow and could have had a 2nd: again he wasn't great.

I think to get a result at Anfield, aside from needing a decent ref (which seems bloody impossible), you need 7-8 really really good performances and, in all honesty, we didn't really have it.
