Martin O'Neill has described our encounter with Fulham as an entertaining game, yet one of two halves.
Speaking on the official site after the ridiculous result O'Neill concentrated on the contrast of performance between the first and second halves stating that we could've easily gone in at halftime leading the game.
'It was an entertaining game and we could have easily gone in leading at half time. But the overall picture wasn't rosy.
'The two halves were day and night. Second-half I think we were very poor. I wouldn't have said that in the first-half as going forward I thought we were excellent.
'I think our issue in the second half was that we didn't play well enough. We didn't test the goalkeeper and Fulham deserved to win from their second-half performance.
'We've come here, we are playing away from home, we've had plenty of possession of the ball and tried to make use of it. But by our own standards it was a desperately poor second half.'
Wasn't much of a first half either if we were entertaining in attack, when you consider the stats say in the entire 92 minutes we had two shots on target!
It's good to hear him say we were poor as a team though, it was certainly very poor to remove both fullbacks again and God only knows who was meant to be right back between Milner and Reo, I'm not sure even they knew given how they swopped positions every 20 seconds.
I'm really passed repeating myself, so sod it. Let's be positive, Everton didn't win.
