Verdict: Deserved Draw Against The Toffees

Verdict: Deserved Draw Against The Toffees

Martin O'Neill has described the result in today's game against Everton 'as a fair reflection' of the match itself.

He continues to call it an 'intense battle' and he's entitled to his opinion, in many ways I wish I could have those 90 minutes back.

Again we didn't really turn up, we had few ideas when on the attack and the movement was pretty much pathetic.

I know others will disagree but we can be thankful that Everton played so poorly to be honest.

All that said, a draw was the fair result as neither side really deserved much from the match.

Speaking on the official site following the match, the gaffer added:

'Obviously I'm delighted we got something out of the game.

'We got back into it in the second half and I thought we might have gone on to win it, but on reflection I think a draw was a fair result.'

Onwards and upwards, performances can't get much worse than those that we are seeing at the moment but we are dragging out the results and the points.

some freshness in the starting line-up would help i reckon. mon talks about having a good squad but really does not rotate at all. give albrighton and fonz a go, if it doesn't work take them off. can't hurt can it? we just were not present the first 45.

It was great to see both sets of fans and players applaud and shake hands with each other after the game today, two fine old clubs with a healthy rivalry and good sportsmanship. Good luck this season Villan's

So much more class than those red draped hooligan bin dippers from over the road.
