Fans had travelled long distances to see Everton play a competitive game, not to watch them just rollover. Other teams have been criticized for being at the beach while playing our relegation rivals. I am sure Spurs and their supporters would not have been pleased to see our starting lineup.
A point yesterday would have seen us move up one place and collect a couple of million pounds, not bad when we got Gray for 1.7.
If we had needed a draw or a win to secure our PL status, that would not have been our team selection. If Everton get beaten 4 or 5 goals, well that happens, but actually fielding a team that you expect to be hammered in my opinion is not acceptable. I don't think we can take liberties like that.
