Re: Annoyance but some perspective
On the way back to Euston and agree with everything you said. There was a marked change in last nights performance after just six games under Ancelotti other than the injury time. As someone said behind me last night this will be our first double this season then added but hang on this is Everton. I do feel positive after several poor managers that CA can get this sorted out with two or three signings preferably leaders
Having slept on it I see it as an annoyance but nothing more.
Yes Ancelotti made a mistake with the substitutions, everyone makes mistakes and I trust him to make less taking us forwards than any of our recent managers. Itís guaranteed that Ancelotti will never make those three substitutions ever again. In fact if Richarlisonís leg has not fallen off we will never see Niasse in the first team ever again.
Yes there was poor management of the game at the end. We have too few players (and particularly senior players) able to think clearly and make the right decisions to see a game out
For 75 minutes we played some pretty good football. We were a bit wasteful with our final ball but before the game and seeing how lethargic we were against West Ham and the limited options at present due to injuries I was worried but it was better than expected. In 12 months time which is when games like these really will matter we will not be bringing on Seamus and Davis as subs. Some Players will be gone, some on the pitch last night will have improved their decision making some will be on the bench and actually coming on as fresh legs with enough skill to keep the pressure on and take that game 3 or 4 nill
Itís an annoyance that we are not in 8th thinking of continuing to build as outside the champions league places everyone is pretty poor and we could make a Europa place and I want us to finish as high as possible but itís not about one game this January itís about how we build over the next 12 months
I would like to see someone for the right hand side this window but if not so be it. It will be the summer when we need to be focused
