been our problem for a long while, and it has to be our defensive attitude, we dont really know how to kill games off that we should win, ok so Everton came back at us, but they shouldn't of even been within touchin distance, we had chances to take it to 3-0...as for casual defending SB i agree with you...far too many silly free kicks around the box....funny we got an away point ..but against a team that had a temporary back four ...now that isn't top four form for me ...hate to admit it, but being realistic ....we have to be tighter defensively .(from front to back) ...

With this squad i feel we can change it, but when we do have these Everton moments, the memories of recent games as such comes flooding back. I hate to say it but its always that Man Utd game 3-5 and the Man citeh game when we were down to 10 men and lost that spring to mind. I cant shift it.

Morning Alfie, I remember the Man U game as well, couldn't defend under pressure. Citeh were the team down to 10 in my mind when they beat us, F A cup wasn't it?
I can even remember a game I watched against Pompey, late 50- early60s.
It was 5 - 0 at half time and ended up 5 - 5. Not sure but I think we were winning.
Seems like we can't manage to defend once we get in front, especially if, like Everton on Sunday, they through everything at us. Somebody should get a grip on the lads and remind them that we know how to pass and hold on to the ball!!

it's not negativity, it's a statement of fact, no ones knocking the football we play, just questioning the steel needed to go that step further.
how the hell are we going to compete at the highest level and stay there without the commitment and backbone that is clearly lacking?
perhaps you answer that when you've stopped being sick.

just to endorse my last post, and also emphasise, just look at the way we folded vs manure, chelsea, ar5ena1, and how we find it hard to get points from workmanlike teams.
before the everton game i would've said a point would be good, but we were coasting at 2:0, then everton decided to up the pace and we floundered, couldn't cope with it and didn't know how to respond.
is that the sign of a top four club? or the sign of a club that has those ambitions? answer= NO!
it's again the same old story for us, it has been for a long time and continues to be that way, we play lovely flowing football at times, but that simply isn't enough if we want to aspire to anything higher, fact.
