Cardiff City v Everton: Live GameThread

Stu Forster

Everton search for their first win as they travel to Cardiff City Stadium (great name...). Join the conversation during the match for thoughts, debate and collective joy and sorrow.

So far there has been cautious optimism by the fans for the beginning of the season. We have been disappointed but not up in arms over the two draws. Things can change drastically after today's result. Can Martinez push us to three points? Because another draw or (god forbid) a loss will bring out all the boo boys and bring unnecessary pressure onto the squad.

That will only lead to more misery. So this means there is more riding on this match than most of us think.

Again, most of our eyes will be set on the forwards. We need goals at this point and someone is going to have to start being productive. Or else we should just start Deulefeu and hope that he will at least be able to spur the attack.

As always, comment below! and COYB!!

Everton Starting XI: Howard, Coleman, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Fellaini, Pienaar, Osman, Mirallas, Barkley, Jelavic

Subs: Robles, Heitinga, Oviedo, Kone, Deulofeu, Naismith, Stones

Cardiff City Starting XI: Marshall, Connolly, Taylor, Caulker, Turner, Whitts, Medel, Campbell, Kim, Gunnarsson, Bellamy
