Some of our fans seem to be expecting to tonk these today. They're terrified of being a "crisis club" already which is what we'll apparently be if we don't win.

We should be comfortable and win today, but not by 3 or 4. I'd take a 1-0 now along with 90 more minutes of this lot playing together.

Big 45 for Everton now.

A crisis club just because of a bad loss? You ought to be reminding your fellow blueshites that a crisis club is Bury or Bolton -  not the club that’s splashing a ton of cash trying to make modest improvements in the league.

Seems like people just wanting to set the side up for failure, demanding a win against a side with a lot of momentum that is probably going to take a few scalps this season, with people underestimating them as a promoted side

Only just turned the game on. Played myself at 2:30 today for the first time in 8 years. Wasn't really remotely arsed to be missing this and while we lost 7-2 at least I got some fitness out of wasting those 2 hours of my life.

Don't expect to see much of me this week as I avoid the internet due to the twats that support us calling for Silva's head 5 minutes into the season.

Best to just accept that we will remain an irrelevant false hope meme club for the rest of my life because I can guarantee we will play exactly well enough later in the season to scrape back to 8th place at the end of the season and make the campaign look 'not disgraceful' and convince ourselves we might actually be good now. 

Leicester have 7th sewn up already and Everton can fuck right off.

There is just a slow, drudgery about Everton that seems impossible to shake. Other than that one season under Martinez I can't remember Everton being exciting. That's not a dig. I like Everton but it just seems all stale.

8-0 for City as of the time typing this but I wouldn't go on to change your opinions on who the favourites are yet. 8-0 can be a fooling scoreline sometimes. City are very good, but 8-0 is still only 3 points and doesn't win you the league automatically.

Let the matches get played and see how they are on a consistent basis.

Leicester finishing higher than 7th isn't impossible. Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal and Tottenham aren't looking too consistent.

Yeah I'm fed up of trying to diagnose the problem. We were like this under Martinez for the second and third seasons. We've changed managers three times and every player in the squad pretty much and we're back where we started.

Bottom line is we have better technical players than the likes of Villa, Bournemouth and Sheffield United. If you have better players and you at least match your opponent's work rate and desire then you will win 9 times out of 10. We haven't. Go figure what the problem is.

Not a single cunt on that pitch looked remotely arsed in the ten minutes I've watched there. Coleman was out last week saying we know this is unacceptable after Bournemouth. No fucking point if you're going to come out and let Sheffield United take three points from Goodison days later.

Watford baffle me. They aren't even that bad but they are pathetic at times. 8-0 is unforgivable.

That was weirdly our worst performance but best result of the season so far.

Problems behind the scenes I reckon, they’ve carried on from that awful performance in the FA cup final

Everton are the very definition of a mid-table nothing club. They have been for a long time, though they’ve spent more than enough money to have ought to have pushed on and got themselves consistently into European competitions each year, much like Tottenham during that period where they seemed to get in the Europa League every year. 

Their recruitment and retention of playing staff and coaching staff hasn’t been good for a while and they have found themselves in a vicious cycle of throwing more money at it each year.

In all seriousness, I watched the last half an hour or so of the Everton game and Silva's changes didn't help. Just throwing on as many attackers on to try and get a goal didn't work. It was so disjointed from Everton, especially after those changes.

Have they though? They were excellent last week. They're nearly Bournemouth bad in terms of completely collapsing away from home.

The Walcott third sub is becoming the rubber stamp of a piss takingly bad performance from us.

I'm a long way from being Silva out but his substitutions leave a lot to be desired. He either makes a like for like change or just throws on another attacker for a midfielder. Looked like Walcott was playing right back at the end.

My other big issue is why Davies doesn't get a game over Schneiderlin. If you can't risk a more expansive midfielder instead of a second deeper midfielder against a newly promoted side at home then why the fuck isn't the lad out on loan getting a game. He captained the under 21s the other week and got really good reviews. Schneiderlin is just a safe ish pair of hands who will win a few challenges and play the ball sideways for 90 minutes.
