Crucial Win For The (Sky) Blues

Paul Traill

I was certainly in the bizarre situation of wanting Everton to lose the match. Tottenham losing their match and Manchester Uniteds also losing meant that 5th position was now a certainty and, as we headed on to the match, we were unanimous in our desire for Everton to lose the match. Why put up with all that agony for the next 30 years just for the sake of one game which doesnt mean anything?

Our Easiest Win Versus Manchester United

Paul Traill

Everton were fantastic, Manchester United were anything but.

We Are Everton. We Lose Big Games. That's What We Do.

From The Dixie Dean Suite...

Paul Traill

on to the Dixie Dean Suite and what a fantastic day we had. The match itself obviously made it all the more sweeter but it was a privilege to be treated to the rather stellar service of the Everton staff. Immediately upon entrance into Goodison Park, we were met by the ever-friendly Graeme Sharpe.

Goalkeepers As Captains?

Paul Traill

Everton had enough to get over the line for another welcome three points our third league win in a row and our eighth consecutive home win (including the FA Cup win over QPR).

We Can't Keep Sneaking These Wins

Paul Traill

" If we are to qualify for European football next season however well need to start doing a lot more than sneaking these home wins."

''That Arteta Is a Bit of a''

Paul Traill

I somehow expected more from Mikel Arteta than badge-kissing when celebrating his goal, pretending to be injured because his boot fell off and stopping our attack in doing so, and then moaning to try and get our players booked.

On We March

Paul Traill

Everton 1-0 West Ham United: Premier League wins have been difficult to come by of late but its been some time since we won a game comfortably. Regardless, I came expecting a draw and was relieved to leave with a win against a rugged West Ham side boasting four clean sheets in a row.

We Can Do It When We Have To

It wasnt pretty for most of that second half and you have to accept we cant play brilliant every match, but what was pleasing was how we came back into the game and forced the victory when we had to.

From The Prawn Sandwich Section

Paul Traill

Oviedo: I remember him playing Stevenage earlier this season and he was awful, but credit to him, hes waited for his chance for over a season now and has performed brilliantly. Two goals in two games and two clean sheets. He did very well against Januzaj and was solid defensively. A very impressive performance which makes you think we may just be able to cope without Baines after all. My Man of the Match. 9
