Everton 2-3 Blackburn. Argh!

Everton 2-3 Blackburn

Absolutely gutted about that but I can't really comment about the game 'cause I was down south at a family do...look at that midfield though. Arteta plus two defenders and a kid. Not strengthening the side during the close-season is little short of dereliction of duty.

With all due respect and even taking injuries into account this is NOT the line-up a top 5 team should be starting the season with :

Howard, Neville, Yobo, Lescott, Nuno Valente (Baxter 78), Arteta, Rodwell, Jagielka, Baines, Osman, Yakubu.
Subs Not Used: Turner, Jutkiewicz, Gosling, Agard, Kissock, Wallace.

I look at the long, long fixture list and dread to think what shape we'll be in by February. We were stretched paper thin last year and we've been reduced even further since then. Really depressing.
