I am now content that we took 3 points from a competent, professional performance. Nothing wrong with that.
Also, I have gleaned a bit more about the Alex Young tribute. A lone piper sounds appropriate.

I also reckon that yesterday will prove a change for the England football team. I have always wanted Ross to succeed and assume every other Evertonian wants him to do so also, yesterday, in front of the England manager, he was superb. The build up by the team and then the hold-up play and cross by Ross for the third goal was a pleasure to watch.
I reckon he will be selected in the next England squad and once in that squad, the way he is playing, it will be a long time till he is not. I appreciate that some may not see that as a good thing.
Anyway, thanks again Ken.

On 'technical' I thought Saturdays performance by Lukaku was his best ever, he cushioned it, laid it off deftly, without being a blue arsed fly he moved enough to drag 2, 3, and sometimes 4 of The Baggies groks with him.
Interesting the comments by your new found Brummie best mate. We went to Spurs (or so it seemed) with much the same KITAP1 attitude, then bemoaned after the fact that we did and why didn't we take it to them a bit more; a constant theme of the Moyes years.
Were they happy with the way Pullis set them out or did they say... "Why the fuck didn't we have a go we got stuffed anyway." Is it our expectation that's false or is theirs set, for them, quite rightly, in mediocrity/reality mode?

I watched MotD and will admit to getting a bit emotional when I saw the piper and the "Golden Vision" banner...

A bit of moaning and groaning re Barry and Jags selection but the clean sheet, three goals and three points more than justified their selection.
As you say, Barry conducted the performance and we looked solid with Jags back. European competition secured onwards and upwards.

In the second half, Everton were saying "We're 2-0 up and we've got the ball and you're doing nothing about it; well, we're not going to hand you a way back in; this isn't last season."
I can't remember the last time a 2-0 lead 30+ minutes out felt so secure. A lot of the lads did well but, as you said, Ross was just excellent.

I note your remark about the Baggies fans taunting our quietude. It's becoming a regular thing. My seat is directly opposite our visitors and we hear the same things every home game.
The tribute to Alexander the Great, the Golden Vision was entirely appropriate.
An observation, however, it seems that no game at GP begins until we observe in silence? I recall a time not too long ago when games started with the crowd all pumped up.
My suggestion is that we fans "pay tribute" at the commencement of half time, rather than just before the game. Also, perhaps those we pay tribute to need to be more significant (clearly Alex Young would be a fine example of most significant).
Not wishing to be curmudgeonly, it almost seems that there is a hunt to seek someone to honour before each and every home game. Is this truly necessary? It definitely was last Saturday, but, surely not so every week?
