Hard to settle for a point after leading and then playing with an extra man. A huge improvement on our last showing in W12 and will have to win our next two home games. Listened to Davie Moyes' post match interview and what a miserable sod. Reminds me soo much of Alex Ferguson who however has won a trophy or two, something Moyes has failed to do in his time at Everton. Couldn't believe he didn't replace Pienaar when the South African received a final warning from the referee. Just our luck we couldn't take advantage.

Much happier with the set up of the team . I thought we played well and did enough to warrant 3 points except for dreadful set piece defending…. again.
Diakite was my man of the match and Hoilett excellent too. Blatantly clear penalty for foul on Hoilett too. Park and Bosingwa quite poor, though I am prepared to forgice them as they will come good. Has to be viewed as a step in the right direction.

A draw against a good team and yet it feels like a loss. Lots to like about the performance and yet so many opportunities missed (or taken away, re the penalty no-call). Poor set piece play will be our downfall if not addressed. And surely MH must see now that Hoilett has to start if we are to develop any credible offense.

Quote from Martin Jol about bobby Zamora "He hated defence and later said he hated crosses as well and that was the moment I thought 'maybe it is better to sell' and that is what we did."

It was there for all to see today, cost us a goal today.

Thought Granero was outstanding, diakite too.

v 10 men is hard but chuck on an extra we bring on 2 defenders and ferdy has been poor for a while, park does little imo
i would have had zamora and park off for cisse and mackie on.
all the nice football, all the possession=no wins and few shots on target, we had a few long range but i can't recall many goal mouth scrambles.
zamora loses the ball too often, he cost us at spurs and it goes on.
hold it or learn to "ride" the foul from behind,like holt does.

Had to settle for the point against a very good Everton side.

A much better performance, in midfield/attack! However, Zamora very poor. Thought Park was a lot better and my initial thoughts that he should have picked Faurlin instead were overuled as I think Park adds a bit more pace and aggression which balanced the midfield.

I believe Cisse should have replaced Zamora a little earlier, although he did benefit from the game being stretched when he came on. I don't think that we should have gone chasing the win as we could easily have been picked off AND ANOTHER CONSECUTIVE DEFEAT WOULD HAVE BEEN DISASTROUS FOR OUR CONFIDENCE. As it is we have a point against a very good team and a good performance, although we rode our luck a bit immediately after their equaliser.

We now have to sort out defending, especially set pieces, and go looking for points. I agree the next two home games are vital.

Better showing against top 6 side when we are bottom 6 side. win will come hopefully against reading.awful defending for their goal from a set piece need to stop making school boy errors like this...Hoilett was rangers best player on the day

highlandbill added 15:58 - Oct 22

Up to now I have been critical of MH team choice but against Everton I think he put out a strong team, its a pity it was so patchy. There is no "feel" about our team & I think this is because they are a bit like a mercenary army...bought in to do a job rather than "grow" within the club.Not much can be done about that especially with a manager devoid of motivational skills.We played well in the first half but the half time team talk (whatever it was ) seems to have put an end to that.
Cisse looks fed up,Zamora is lumbering about upfield, Park works his socks off but frequently fails.
Of the new "boys" Nelson & Grenaro seem the most committed, I think the former should have been made captain as he is very bossy and gets stuck in with a vengence (but doesnt foul). Is Mackie injured? He is always worth bringing on as a sub as he knows where the goal mouth is , (unlike SWP).

MelakaRanger added 07:32 - Oct 23

Yes we played well but once again we gifted our opponents their goal. We seem to make a knack of shooting ourselves in the foot. In my mind that was another 2 points given away.

Thank goodness SWP didn't play. Hopefully Hughes has finally got the message now?

I truly hope this is the moment we turned the corner and that we get a point or more at Arsenal and beat both Reading and Southampton.

I am a firm supporter of Mark Hughes and I desperately was him to stay and succed but no matter what Tony F says publicly, if we lose to Reading and Southampton I fully expect he will make swift changes at the top.

Novembers 4 games will make or break the Hughes tenure at Loftus Rd.

My last sentence should have read 5 games not 4. Doh!
