My state of mind, aside from the ingrained pessimism that truly makes me an Evertonian, is one of what I would describe as “perpetual cuspiness”.
Other than my experiences being an avid Oklahoma City Thunder fan and watching a team get close so many times to “getting there”, Everton have been an even longer term exercise in (to borrow from the title of a Wilco song) the “Art of Almost”, of always being on the cusp.
Much like I loved the Arsenal result only to see my flickering optimism extinguished against Liverpool and Hull, I'm looking for something common in sport but all too often illusive for Everton - a winning streak.

There currently seems a gap between teams in the prem, the top five all bang win streaks together:
Man Utd 8
Liverpool had a 5 I think
Man City done 8 early on.
A decent run like that would put us in the mixer, but I feel we haven't got that mentality yet. Keoman needs time to change lots at the blues, he seems to be trying to start the change in this transfer window.

It's tough to win games in the Premier League... I don't think we should be expecting too many 'streaks' any time soon.
