Nothing game really.

Think you have your answer to why Everton are above us. They've spent half their games being tediously solid and when asked to open up at home, they lack the ability to do so.

Not impressed with Davis, was though with McGinn.

Draw a fair result and delighted Jack is back.

One game closer to never having to watch us on the box again and listen to absolute drivel from the commentators.

Looking at Everton's away record after tonight's game

P 18, W 11, D 4, L 3, F 23, A 15

So looking at that, and taking into account experience of Ancelotti and the money they've spent; for me a draw isn't necessarily that bad a result, notwithstanding the performance.

1st half better team
Overall, without Watkins not sure who we expect to score goals
I want to be kind to Davis as he try's very hard, but I do not think his team mates know he is on the pitch as they certainly do not play to him.
If I was an Everton fan I would be pissed off, they have consistently spent money over the last few years but had no creative Midfield.
I texted my Everton mate and offered to let him have Barkley and play 10 VS 12 he told me to F off
But at the end, Richarlson, Calvert Lewis and Gomes looked more likely to score than we did
Was Wes on the bench ?
If he was he should have had a 10 min run

Traore is such a frustrating player to watch. He went through a spell in the first half where he either gave it away, lost it feebly or kicked it straight out. He then topped it off with a pathetic dive when he still had the ball. He really does turn in many more poor performances than not.

I thought Davis did ok with little service. Difficult to tell on the TV whether he was showing for the ball enough because he held it up pretty well when they passed to his feet. He also has that little turn of pace that takes him past defenders. He does, however, strike me as someone who generally lacks self confidence which is not good in a striker.

Villa v Everton games are usually very good. This one reminded me of 1977 Wembley final.

Thatís a very fine away record.

A game none of us will remember by Saturday.

8 out of 12 against Everton since we came back.

Everton felt like they were there for the taking. Then again if I was an Everton fan, I would think we were there for taking. Even stevens really. Mings and Martinez were magnificent tonight, McGinns best game of the season until last 10 when he faded, but then he was covering more ground for Barkley so no wonder he tired. Nothing against Davis who worked hard, but you realise how good Ollie is in that lone striker role when heís not there.
4 points against Everton in the last 12 days is not bad at all. Hopefully with Jack back we can get one more win this season, above 50 points will be a good season.

Apart form Mings's misdirected header in the first half, we didn't really threaten to score, and as the game wore on they looked the more likely to win, but the defence did well again.

McGinn did better and was using his backside to greater effect tonight.

However we looked pedestrian again at times in midfield. I've heard 'tidy' mentioned in reference to several players but that is usually a synonym for underwhelming.

First game I've been able to watch live for awhile.

Emi: 8. Anyone who says this is a one-player club is doing a disservice to Martinez.
Cash: 5. Nothing of real note and then got hurt.
Elmo: 6. Was serviceable as a sub and made a key block on what should of been a goal.
Konsa: 7. His usual solid self.
Mings: 6. Good for his usual one screw up or two per game, but then solid for the rest.
Luiz: 6. I saw him breaking up a lot of attacks, but also couldn't make a pass to anyone.
McGinn: 7. Worked hard throughout.
Traore: 4. Occasionally shows some skill, but then quickly disappears or flops down in the goal area when he still has the ball.
Grealish: 6. You can tell he has months of rust still on him, but was still pulling 4 Everton defenders with him whenever he made a run.  If only he had other players around him that could get into proper position when he makes those runs.
Barkley: 2. I feel for the guy.  He looks like he genuinely cares and is trying, but he looked like he was playing with cement shoes today.  His first touches were always heavy and he made several back passes straight to Everton players.
Ramsey: 6. Played with some pace, and things seemed to open up a bit when he came on, but nothing much came of it.
AEG 5. Offered more than Traore, but he wasn't even close to goal with his shots today from what I remember.
Davis: 5.  Didn't get a whole lot of service, but almost made something happen at the end there.

The highlight at Wembley being the post half time 10 minutes of hunting the bandsmanís lost spur from his boot.

Remember that?

Pleased for Emi and the defence equalling the record of 15 clean sheets. I'm hoping they make it 16. It would be nice also to break the 50 point barrier.
McGinn probs motm, though Targett played well also.
We lacked urgency and confidence going forwards especially without Ollie as the focal point of our attacks.
4 points vs Everton within the space of 2 weeks is a good return. UTV!
