John McCormick writes: Even before today’s match I wasn’t looking forward to Thursday. Not only are Everton playing well, there’s hardly any public transport running and it’s bound to rain as I make the long walk back to wherever I can pick up a taxi. So when Gus said in his post-match e-mail that he was disappointed I thought “Join the club, Mate”. Anyway, enough of the joys of living down south, here’s Gus telling M Salut what else he thought:
I’m disappointed, I was expecting more from the team.
We’ve used excuses before because we’ve been playing top teams at the Stadium of Light, but we were not good enough to win today.
There’s no place to hide.
I don’t care about the other results, we need to be looking after ourselves.
The easy part, from a manager’s point of view, is defending. Being organised is something that the players have been putting plenty of effort and understanding into.
The situation that we are in, we are all involved. Of course there are players with different characters and on the day they can do better and they know that.
It was a very disappointing day.
All the best,
