VVD oh boy, cross fingers.

Yes we got robbed but here's the thing, Virg goes off, oppo get 2 headed goals. Get used to it. Gomez is a shadow of his former self. His lack of aggression led to the corner which resulted in Keane's equalizer. A few minutes earlier he stood off Richarlison and allowed him a shot at goal.
Clear as day Everton was hoofing it to his side trying to get Calvert Lewin to win headers off him

Seems to have a real weakness in the air, and was in no men's land for the 2nd goal

I know it’s not the same sport, and no-one can replace Van Dijk to the same quality if he is out for the year, but in 2019, Richmond lost Rance in round 1, and we went on to win the Premiership when everyone was writing us off. We had a bad few weeks, then found a solution anf righted the ship

Don’t give up is all I’m saying.

West coast in 2015 made the grand final by losing key defenders and creating the weagles web

Only half joking, but should Null and Void be considered with the current COVID status? 🤔
I was thinking before the game that if Everton won we should all start screaming NULL AND VOID like so many Blueshite supporters were a few months back.

Terrible news on VVD but not unexpected. If I was Pickford I'd be keeping a low profile around Merseyside for the time being.

Quite funny that the usual suspects are deathly silent on this now when the season has barely stated but were so loud and passionate about it when the season was almost complete.

That's devastating, I just don't see us winning it again now - with Alison he's our most irreplaceable player. Goal has to be top four.

The FA have still said nothing regarding the Pickford VAR decision. Probably covering themselves legally now that they are aware Pickford deliberately butchered Van Dijk putting him out for the rest of the season.

I think we are still capable of winning the league, we just need to be more clinical in attack. Our conversion from shots at goal and shots on target is pretty poor. Villa can put 7 past us yet one of the best front 3 combinations in football can't score more than 4 on a good day. If we start making the most of our opportunities then we will be one of those teams that will concede goals but will score more.

My biggest concern isn't that we won't have VVD back this season, I think we will get by and come the January window we will probably be in the market for a CB, it's that VVD won't be the same player when he comes back, due to lack of confidence in his knee.

The Villa game isn't the biggest concern for me. 3 of the goals were deflections, one of them was from Adrian giving the ball away and another was offside. We conceded a few poor goals at the end but mostly because we'd given up.


Of more concern is defending corners and set pieces now. Van Dijk dominates aerially in the box. As crazy as it sounds we could have really done with Dejan right now.

To be fair, I don't see Pickford as being deliberate - it was careless though and there should be some kind of penalty for doing that to another player and possibly ending their career. Richarlison was deliberate though and his carry on after the incident made it pretty obvious that he's an A grade flog.
