Not really much to see as it is only a minute. Not too sure how sloppy the first goal is as the guy smashes it in from range but the 2nd one had a tiny touch of the Rob Greens about it and Lumley, who is otherwise excellent needs to learn to sort his feet out a bit better. Otherwise a great save from Hugill and I think Chair. Excellent hand of God goal which Lumley rightly throttled Weismann for. Could have easily stood and crappy cheating.
Not much to analyse apart from one sloppy mistake.
On the upside I hear from someone coming back from the game that out passing and play is generally getting better and better. Hopefully the players brush this off and go again.
Watching through this it's been quite some time since we've had a player who can keep a ball so close to his feet and change the direction of the ball and his body so quickly. And injury free it will only get better.
We seem to have got a manager and a squad that plays exciting football and just f*cking goes out there to win and entertain.
Absolutely loving this so far. I am sure we will lose matches but we seem to have got a bit of our traditional attacking flare and energy back with a fearless squad of talent and hard working souls that for once, just once, seems pretty well balanced.
Is it vaguely possible for some of us more mature fans that we are on the way to getting our Rangers (of old) back? Not to get ahead of ourselves, but just maybe?
Is anyone else starting to think that if this set of players can stick to the playing style script that we may actually, after half a dozen games, start to surprise a few teams out there?
Warburton is criticised by many for bringing on his subs on 61/62 minutes like clockwork and that may well happen but the style of play, if the players get a bit of confidence could really catch some teams out. My only fear is keeping the back door shut but going forward we appear to be starting to move the ball a lot quicker and with purpose than I have seen for a few seasons. Nowhere near as much sideways indecision.
I like Amos and he has astounding pace which is useful for the role he plays but there is a little bit of pace and purpose starting to creep into this lot. I hope that even if we suffer a few initial defeats or set backs (we may not) that given time with an almost completely new team with a few familiar faces that this may be the freshen up we have been waiting for. And on a much tighter budget.

Unlucky OG and Scowen always looks comfortable when he's actually in front of goal. Perhaps we will see a different player in a different position this year? We really need some firepower and their number 20 looks like a proper player. Just what we actually need. Kit actually looks quite good surprisingly. Would look better with white shorts so we could pretend we were Man City.
Everton appear to have signed 'This Morning' TV presenter, Rylan Clark-Neal, accidentally mistaking him for André Gomes. Marco Silva commented, 'It was an honest mistake. I've still not seen both of them in a room at the same time. Gomes has sometimes flattered to deceive and I am sure Rylan can kick a ball around a bit, if they are indeed two different people?"
Everton hope the mistake will save them a considerable part of the €28m Euros that Gomes was expected to cost the club. Everton chairman, Bill Kenwright commented, "We believe Rylan earns about half a million a year doing This Morning and as long as he can make training in the afternoon we are happy to match that. Given how Marco's sides tend to slide after a bright start we can introduce Rylan to the team around that time and hopefully the fans will just think Gomes is a bit off the boil. Who knows though? I've seen Gomes a number of times and sometimes I think he'd be better presenting Morning TV than playing football."
Apparently vaguely on the radar. Prolific at Doncaster but hardly pulling up trees before that. His record at Millwall made Conor Washington look like Lionel Messi. However, 1 in 2 at Doncaster. We certainly need a few strikers in as at the moment we only have Smith and Oteh who are actual out and out strikers.
