Everton booked their place in the 5th Round last night. The Toffees came from behind thanks to Denis Stracqualursi's first goal for the club and Marouane Fellaini's winner. Fulham's last win at Goodison Park came in 1975; a run that never looked like ending.
A win and in the next round of the cup. Not getting to carried away with it as cup ties are rarely any barometer of league form. It should serve to bolster confidence a little and perhaps bring a little more self belief back.
Everton 2-1 Fulham.It?s great to be in the hat before everyone else plays and we can now just relax, see who goes through and see who we draw in the next round.

Concern over Everton's attacking ineptitude in the face of a resolute defence is back on the agenda after the home defeat to Stoke

In reality, Moyes made no real attempt to win the City game and with a strategy like that, you usually get what you deserve.
The day we saw money talking
Blues through to next round from a soporific display.
As the song goes, "We're on the march with Moyes's army...?. On tonight's evidence, it's more of a crawl.
