It's difficult to know where to start.
The reality is we have allowed the worst redshite team in forty years beat us.
We got off to a strong start and we had the better of the first half. We got the goal our play deserved. It was a clearance by some dick head that was charged down by Tim Cahill. The ball broke to Nikita Jelavic and as you expect he puts the ball into the sack. He is a cool customer that will get us plenty of goals.
The rest of the half was pretty comfy but we didn't create many chances to get that second goal. But in saying that the opposition were poor and they never created anything worthy of note.
The second half was a different story. The Everton team that ended the first half didn't start the second. We looked a completely different team.
For whatever reason we stopped playing. We didn't keep possession of the ball and we allowed the opposition to get control of the game. The decisive moment came when Sylvain Distin attempted a back pass on the half line. He got completely wrong and it allowed the shite 7 to beat Tim Howard.
I thought at that time that it was game over and you could see that with quite a few players. It seems that we were going for a one nil victory. We were so negative. Not once did we trouble their third choice goalie.
They got the winner with a couple of minutes to go. Absolutely gutted.
Like many Evertonians there is a sense of bewilderment. Why can't we beat them? They were there for the taking. The second half performance was not good enough and in the end we didn't deserve anything from the game.
We will never get a better opportunity to beat a very poor side. It will take us some time to get over this, but we are Evertonians. It's what we do.
