    So just 105 days after our last visit to Goodison we're back there on Saturday to face a Marco Silva side who will be full of confidence. Completely different test to Burnley and Richarlison is fit to play who we'll have to keep an eye on.

    Hoping we get to see this again:

    I imagine there will be a lot of debate about line up and formation with many seemingly keen on a 4-4-2 after the change it had on Sunday. Personally though, I wouldn't be confident with just the two midfielders in this game as feel we will be massively overrun in the middle. Not fully against 4 at the back but would prefer to see a 4-2-3-1 if we go that way for the above reasons. Ings will surely start?

    Anyway, we're due a ****ing win here eh?

    Up the ****ing Saints <cheers>

    Part of me thinks that we're due one there... the other part of me thinks we're cursed and we'll never win there again :(

    Tough call to name our line up mate, as 5 of our new signings weren’t considered for selection last weekend.

    Jags will obviously be missing and will likely be replaced by either Mina or Zouma.

    Richarlison came off on Saturday with a tight calf, so not sure if he’s going to be fit. Gomes definitely won’t be, Bernard unlikely as he’s had no pre season.

    My prediction is, a 4-2-3-1

    Pickford
    Coleman, Mina, Keane, Baines

    Schneiderlin, Gueye

    Walcott, Sigurdsson, Richarlison

    Tosun

    I'm potentially going to this to sit in the home end and try and hide my lovely southern accent surrounded by spitting scouse tossers.

    We will lose 3-0.

    Lineup:

    McCarthy
    Yoshida Vestergaard Hoedt
    Cedric Bertrand
    Romeu Lemina
    Redmond Armstrong Elyounoussi
    Austin

    Play 4-4-2 as the formation suits the players we have

    We should have won the last game, but that was then, this is now. We were fighting for our lives then*, whereas now we are bedding in several new players and this must affect formation or at least how successful the formation is. I see no reason that we couldn't win (lose or draw), but have gone for a 2-1 win.

    *All games should be played as if we are fighting for our lives because they are all equally important at the end of the day, but I don't expect the team will be aware of it....especially the new players who are still trying to impress and not look like proper Charlies.

    Interesting to see Morgan there, thought he'd burnt his bridges with the fans?

    Can see him doing very well under Silva tbh.

    Mate has 4 season tickets at Everton and 1 of the guys he goes with can't go so have been offered it. Not 100% I'm going to go yet

    Not sure, I haven't been to Goodison before so don't know the names of the stands. I think it is the equivalent of the Northam so I'm sure I will be fine and won't stick out at all with my incredibly thick southern accent and using "bruv" and "****" as joining words.

    Is that 3 - 0 loss because we were disqualified for fielding 12 players?

    96/97ish I think. Kevin Davies wasn't it?

    Edit: was 1997. A 2-0 win with Davies and Le Tiss scoring.
