Adrian’s chance arrives!

Joe Hart will take an enforced rest against Manchester City under the terms of his loan deal … and the sad truth is it’s the right time! Ok, we understand that there’s more to conceding 30 goals in 14 games than goalkeeping errors but mentally the guy must be shot and the return of Adrian […]

Niall McDonald hands out the marks Hart: Will forever feature in replays of Rooney’s wonder goal sailing over him into the net 3 Zabaleta: Very static, prevents any attack being launched down the right. Booked, again 2 Reid: Looked stretched at times. Limped off with a hamstring strain on 75 mins 4 Ogbonna: Most touches […]

Everton 4 Irons 0 West Ham tonight is a club which has seen its heart and soul ripped out! It is impossible to describe the depths to which this squad sunk this evening.
