Both headers were more or less uncontested, standing jumps in the middle of the 6 yard box. Forget the opposition, no team should concede goals like that.

 

Having said that, we haven’t hit a corner like either of those two in three seasons. Surely. Surely, we have someone who can put a corner in like that? One in two or three?

You'd think it's the sort of thing that could easily be practised in training, yet we can't seem to deliver them  as you rightly point out.

Really wasn’t that bad,  Everton are a very decent side 

 

Meltdown because of losing to Everton is embarrassing

All things considered, that was much better than I thought when I saw our starting XI.

 

Everton are a proper team and will expect to be playing European football next season. We had Brennan, Galvin and Urhoghide (less than 10 senior starts between them) against James Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and Sigurdsson... just to put things into perspective, Sigurdsson alone probably cost more than every single signing we’ve made in 150+ years combined. 

 

We had to pick and choose our moments to attack, like Thompson said before the match, and we played some nice stuff when we did go forward.

 

Disappointing to concede 3 goals from corners but the league is the priority and hopefully that run out has helped boost fitness levels ready to smash the granny out of Coventry on Wednesday night

I did not expect to win today
 

 

 

 

But you never know what you’ve got until you’ve lost it

 

 

 

 

 

Toilet paper is a good example

 

 

We need a manager ASAP Thompson is a good coach Tactically hasn’t got a clue

Don’t get me wrong I’d do know better ..

but he just seemed to me that he was clueless when we went two down 

 

And if our chairman is satisfied with keeping Thompson as manager it shows his ambition for the club

Think Brown is getting a bit of a raw deal here

 

Barely played any football since Autumn, came on against a good side and actually got on the ball, won some free kicks, tried a few things 

 

He was more involved in the game than many of our other players

Got to agree with that , was showing and using he ball better than most , don’t get the hate he’s a decent midfielder , needs a few games

That’s the key mate. Needs a run of games from the start.

Pat Nevin on 5live referred to him as “a lovely little player”

If he was starting games he probably wouldn’t make it to half time, he looked so unfit this evening

Izzy Brown 🤦🏻‍♂️

Bless him.

Not a footballer.

His record for luton last season would suggest otherwise. 1 goal and 8 assists (pretty much the same as Bannan) however Brown only played 28 games compared to Bannans 40 odd

How on earth does he warrant a start? He might have tried to make things happen, I mean that’s all very well but it might help if he could actually find a Wednesday player to give the ball to occasionally. He just gave the ball away time after time.

I thought we did make a go of it regardless of the lack of attacking threat; it was just too big a gulf in class to overcome. That was a very strong Everton side out there tonight and they're having a good season. They'll be 4th in the table if they win either of their games in hand.  We were the ones who started with youth players, whereas every Everton player who started is part of the senior squad, and the majority of them are regularly in their first eleven.

I couldn't view this game as anything more than a warm-up for Coventry and it was useful for just that. I'm glad Brennan and Galvin kept their places for this one. Great to see Urhoghide out there; I was beginning to think he'd disappeared completely. Dele-Bashiru looked solid when he came on, especially given how little game time he's gotten this season. I'm baffled by how far off the pace Brown is. He can do just about nothing right at the moment. I'd love to think he'd come good if he was starting and got a proper run, but, sadly, I can't imagine we'll ever have the luxury of affording him the amount of time it's going to take him to get up to speed. Hopefully Green will find his feet a lot faster.

Unfortunately not, but bar our defence who would get in our team? 

If we are not counting defenders Shaw Odobajo Luongo 

If we are Lees , Dunkerly , Iorfa Westwood 

Palmer and Windass are starters
