Rob Elliot was again our Man of the Match on Wednesday at Goodison and he had another excellent game for us and he was on of the few players who were not asleep in that first half and that was good because he made some good saves.
He made some even better save sin the second half as he kept us in the game at 1-0 until we have two stupid penalties away in the last couple of minutes and even Rob couldn´t save any of those from Ross Barkley.

But Rob is one of the few players who has been outstanding for us this season and he has credibility with the fans so what he says means something.
Rob has apologized to the fans for Wednesday night´s shocker and says the team will do everything possible to put things right tomorrow against West Brom:
“Obviously I cannot speak highly enough of the fans.”
“I can only apologize that we didn’t get the result that we should have got. I will tell them though that we will do everything we possibly can to put it right for Saturday.”
“I think we need to look at our away form, because it is something we need to address.”
“Even this season I think the performances prior to this haven’t been as bad as the form has suggested, but we need something to start getting us going away from home.”
“But a massive thank you to the fans, and obviously the performance wasn’t acceptable. We hold our hands up to that.”
We need a win tomorrow and quite honestly anything less than that should set the alarm bells off at the club for the second successive game.
If we can only draw it may force owner Mike Ashley to take some action to help try to preserve our Premier League status – with time running out.
