Paul Brown spoke to Alex McLeish on www.avfc.co.uk after the bore draw (well done to Mystic Mug, now 7-7 with Lawro!)
I`ll get this brief....
He said: 'We got our noses in front. But Everton are a tough team. They make it hard - they are dangerous at set-pieces and they have one or two players who can make a difference. I thought the performance was very good, especially in the second half."
And there lies the problem. "I thought our performance was very good".
Sorry Alex, can you leave please?
'At least it wasn't a home defeat again. That's a plus.
And there lies the problem.... oh, I`ve done that already!
He explains that Keane didn`t start because he hasn`t played for 3-4 weeks. Great loan that, thousands of pounds and yet... oh forget it. He gave him just 9 mins ffs.
