Cheated, robbed, unlucky. Yes we were. Time to move on... What good came out of Saturday?
Moyes picked a proper team (of course I'd differ with him but he set out a team that could and might well have won). He seemed, for the first time in many a long day, to have learned from what has been wrong this season.
For the first time in many a long day, ToffeeWeb contributors were pretty united against cheating and incompetence. It wasn't a bad weekend to be an Evertonian. This could be a catalyst. We have good players and I feel they might just be used properly now. Now is the time to start a run of positive football. I'm not talking Holloway madness but something based round how we started on Saturday.
What happens off the field is hard to change; what happens on it must be the best it can possibly be. Forget last weekend; we can and will move on. I have so many reservations about Moyes but I'll have him over Dalglish. We have players who can put it about (Cahill) but we don't have a coward and cheat like Suarez. I haven't had a glass half-full for some time but I have a feeling Saturday is the beginning of a turnaround.

Nothing will happen about Saturday, it never does. How that shower of absolute scum across the park keep getting away with it is beyond the reason of any logical person.
They should hang their heads in shame, but knowing that disgraceful lot, they'll be playing the martyrs. If this is football for the future God help us.
But hopefully this will get the fire back in Davey's eyes again. Use the rage in a positive way the only way we can - winning matches and hunt those cheats down with dignity and class - something they'll never have.
Jack Rodwell - now is the time.

Cahill was not 100% fit so why not play Velios or Straq? Why wasn't Drenthe started? Why not Neville at right back.
Hibbert's first contribution, a wild foul after 35 seconds.
Despite this they did start brightly until idiot Atkinson changed everything but we don't know if we could have gotten the 3 points anyway.
Now we have to start again against Chelski and try to get it right as long as Moyes gets in the new boys.

Agree Declan, the anger and passion he showed as he left the pitch after the red card was what we want to see from him in his games all the time. Maybe this could be the catalyst to kick start Jack's career and we could finally have this marauding central midfielder dominating midfield.

Here in Oz It took years for our kind of football to live down the reputation of being a game only suitable for girls. The Rodwell non incident leads me to think it won't be long before English football assumes that mantle.
