To say the season is beginning to crumble away would be an understatement, and Steve Bruce knows it. Second best and apathetic, he called us in his missive from Goodison …
That was up there with our most disappointing days this season.
We’ve prided ourselves on our resilience, especially away from home, and that’s the disappointing thing for me.
Today we were too easily beaten and we have to admit that. We gave poor goals away and when you do that in this division, you get punished.
Goodison has never been a good hunting ground for us, but wherever we go in the Premier League, if we play with that apathy we’ll come unstuck.
We had the first chance through Kieran before they scored, and then Sessegnon hit the bar which might have made a difference.
But I can’t make excuses because we were second best today.
The two goals we conceded today were awful and that’s summed us up of late. You can’t give away goals like that.
The one reason we’re in the situation we’re in is the defensive situation across the whole team.
At the moment it’s not quite right so we have concentrate on that.
All the best,
