Two miserable first round defeats in cup comps for Koeman. Both at home. The battle for 7th it is then. Hold onto your hats gentlemen. Fucks sake.

When we lost to Norwich our form went to pot
If we go to pot again after this poor defeat I think 7th will be a real struggle

Yet AGAIN we let opportunity slip through our fingers

Ronald's on the war path. But dropping deep is as much down to the manager as it is the players. He picks the team and gives them their instructions. His new signings will be given the same instructions so we'll end up with the same results.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38543677

Everton manager Ronald Koeman fiercely criticised his players and demanded action from the club's hierarchy in the transfer market after the FA Cup exit at home to Leicester City.

Koeman was furious after the 2-1 loss ended the Toffees' hopes of challenging for a trophy in his first season.

"I know what is needed to change," the 53-year-old Dutchman said.

"If everybody opened his eyes maybe we will get further in our improvement - because that is what this team needs."

Everton paraded new 11m forward Ademola Lookman, 19, before kick-off, but negotiations continue to drag on to secure Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.

Koeman wants major improvements to his squad and said: "I have that in mind and the board knows because we speak together about what we and the team needs and that is the job of [director of football] Steve Walsh.

"I hope everybody realises what the team needs to get results that are the expectation of this football club.

"I can explain more but I don't like to because that's really talks we need to do [internally]."

He added that the fact teenage Everton midfielder Tom Davies was one of the best players on show against Leicester "says enough" about the squad at his disposal.


Koeman also refused to put the cup exit down to ill fortune after seeing Romelu Lukaku's opener quickly cancelled out by two goals from Leicester substitute Ahmed Musa.

"It is not bad luck," he said. "We did it ourselves and it was just unbelievable how we dropped back.

"It was a lack of concentration at 1-0. I just can't see how they score the goal to make it 1-1. No pressing on the ball, a pass inside Seamus Coleman and Musa is faster - three defenders for us and it is 1-1.

"If you play like we did at 1-0 you ask for goals against. That is not the way you need to play at 1-0."

And with a Premier League match against Manchester City next up, Koeman warned his players they risk being on the end of a result similar to the 5-0 FA Cup drubbing Pep Guardiola's side dished out to West Ham on Friday.

"If we play like the last 30 minutes it can be the same result as against West Ham," he said.

I think Its fair to say that we have too many players coming to the end of their careers, far too many players not good enough,
Koeman Needs at least five players this window to challenge for European football.

Keeper should be priority, Defence is old too slow for the premiership, Gareth Barry needs replacing now, desperately need a Peter Reid type play maker, plus a Striker to rival Lukaku so he isn't with out competition for places.

Just goes to show how much we are already missing Idrissa Guye defence and keeper exposed against Leicester.

All well and good Koeman going all ballistic, but he's the dozy fucker changing the team and formation again and again.

Started at Norwich with several changes and the season crashed and burned from there.

Prick!
