From My Seat: Hull City (A)

Ken Buckley

A last game of the season in Hull in weather that was best described as changeable may not be your first choice of venues but I tell you what, for terrace parties it was great.

From My Seat: Man City (H)

3 May 2014 was a strange day in the history of Everton Football Club. With a Champions League place to play for and only two games to go, about a quarter of the fanbase wanted us to lose all because, if Manchester City won, Liverpool may not win the title.

From My Seat: Man Utd (H)

Ken Buckley

"A pretty straight-forward victory that in some ways reminded me of the Ali rope-a-dope fights. We sucked them in, saw them off and hit them hard."

From My Seat: Crystal Palace (H)

Ken Buckley

Hopefully thats not season end and the manager can rouse the players to give us a record points total and see where that leaves us table wise. To fold now would be a disaster after such displays to this point.

From my seat: Sunderland (A)

Ken Buckley

A visit to the home of the Mackems is never the best of away trips but, in our present league position, one that engendered both excitement and dread. Could we make it seven wins on the bounce? Could we go 4th? Could Barry survive a 10th yellow card? Well... 'Yes' was the ultimate answer but not without a rollercoaster of emotions.

From My Seat: Arsenal (H)

Ken Buckley

We drank, laughed and hoped that we could take the Arsenal scalp which would be no mean feat considering the history of this game over the years. My take was that, if we could do it at Fulham against the history, well then... why not today?

From My Seat: Fulham (A)

Ken Buckley

While the performance first half was poor the fighting spirit was not in question so getting the three points satisfied most.

From My Seat: Newcastle (A)

Ken Buckley

"If you could bottle that performance and bring it out each game, who knows what could be achieved."

From My Seat: Swansea City (H)

Ken Buckley

"It was a game I expected to see as both teams have big bucks to play for and I expect many a game to season end will be just as fraught."

From My Seat: Cardiff City (H)

Ken Buckley

As always a good day out and whatever is made of the performance a good three points gained. After our game v WHU I said then I thought we would have games very tight until season end and I still stand by that and the fact being the team to get the points no matter the performance will determine the final table.

From My Seat: Arsenal (FA Cup)

Ken Buckley

It would be an understatement to say the performance left us less than pleased.

From My Seat: West Ham Utd (H)

Ken Buckley

Overall, a good day out. Not a lot to write home about. We were grateful for the points and hope that this can be the start of points gathering for us...

From my seat: Chelsea (A)

Ken Buckley

It should be remembered that playing Chelsea away is no easy task and to play them as we did deserves high praise: at times we looked like the home side. I think today we will feel frustration and hurt not because we lost but for being the better side for a long period and then to get done right on the death just because we just cant seem to score in these sorts of games.

From My Seat: Swansea City (Cup)

Ken Buckley

Although todays game was less than enthralling in fact, we were downright poor in long stretches I read nothing into it as, after years of Blue cup ties, none of them seem to go to form or plan. The important thing is get a win and in the hat.

From My Seat: Crystal Palace (H)

Ken Buckley

Ken made it to Goodison, only for the match to be called off

From My Seat: Spurs (A)

Ken Buckley

Anyone fancy a guess at why, when we desperately need an out-and-out striker, we have none on the pitch but one on the bench and dont use him? The manager will probably have a simple answer for that but chances are he aint going to tell us...

From My Seat: Aston Villa (H)

Ken Buckley

We are back in it. It will be great to see how we go about staying in it.

From My Seat: Liverpool (A)

Ken Buckley

Overall one to forget but you just dont, do you?

From My Seat: WBA (A)

Ken Buckley

Lets hope it was a one off. We are still right in the mix for fourth spot but any higher might be a tall order after so many draws.

From My Seat: Norwich (H)

Ken Buckley

The football played did l at times resembled the flow of the Royal Blue Mersey However, with that free flowing dominance, it must concern the manager that we dont score more goals from such joined-up play.

From My Seat: QPR (H)

Ken Buckley

"Many were wrestling with the notion of Are we that good or is the second team in the championship That bad?"

From My Seat: Stoke City (A)

Ken Buckley

It may be the case that we dropped two points but, at that moment Baines's penalty kick hit the net, one felt great and from the celebrations you thought it could have been the winner.

From My Seat: Southampton (H)

Ken Buckley

A good day out and a game that was played in good spirit in the main between two footballing teams

From My Seat: Sunderland (H)

Ken Buckley

We assembled in our Room of Nonsense and the pre-match chat centred on many things none of which anticipated a loss.

From My Seat: Fulham (H)

Ken was in the stand to see it all unfold at Goodison Park.

From My Seat: Man Utd (A)

Ken Buckley

There was singing on trains, coaches and cars as we descended on Skys darlings with loaded Kalashnikovs ready for a proper gunfight. As it turned-out, the homeward journey would be twice as nice and twice as loud.

From My Seat: Stoke City (H)

Ken Buckley

A 4-0 win that saw a goal apiece by loan players and a goal apiece by our full backs, nothing like variety eh.
