Happy with this.

Yep, on balance, I would prefer a Premier League team, especially if it's not one of the top ones.

Well at least our manager should have some idea about the players he's facing, even if the manager is diametrically opposed in style.

Happy with the draw like, and more Premier League teams heading out too, it's beginning to look far rosier for us Blues.

Roll on the weekend and hopefully three points against Luton.

Charles @3,

I suspect there are more of Dyche's squad residing at Goodison than remain at Turf Moor.

kin ell, the stars could really align for us if Bournemouth manage to win their game.

And like that, the last 16.

Momentum building, players hungry to keep each other out of the side (Pato/Young even before Seamus back, Beto/DCL).

Should be interesting in a months time, should they still only have a point I imagine they’ll surrender before we attack.

Must be a mistake.

I was expecting a trip to Anfield or Old Trafford per usual…

It’s a long time since Everton went far in this competition, and last night’s superb win puts another layer of positivity on the recent upturn of results.
From what I have seen of Burnley, they don’t sit back, and it should make for a proper cup tie under the lights at Goodison. That said, our home form really must improve radically if the players’ mindset is to change in order to deliver better home performances , it is something I am sure Dyche is focussed on and hopefully, this will play out this Saturday afternoon.

Burnley are not the club that they used to be. I have always associated that club with attacking and entertaining football and none more so than the team of 1959-60.

At the beginning of that season, Everton were thumped away and about a fortnight later lost at home. During the latter match, I remember Jimmy McIlroy and Ray Pointer bamboozling the Everton defence by passing the ball to each other for the full length of the pitch before Pointer netted.

The Everton crowd rewarded this wonderful piece of football with a rousing ovation for the two Burnley players. I think that the Blues will get their revenge this time.

Burnley at home for a place in the Quarter Finals of the Cup, tell me this trophy doesn't matter now?

This is a huge cup for this club and is a welcome distraction from the league struggles that we've had to endure as fans these past few years.

Much like during the 1995 FA Cup run, we all worried about being relegated that year, tell me that cup run wasn't welcome?

Niall (11) We reached the quarter final in both 2019/20 and 2020/21. We drew with Leicester 2-2 before losing on penalties in December 2019 with Duncan Ferguson in charge. Baines scored a cracking equaliser in the final minutes of that match. A year later we lost 0-2 to Manchester United during the pandemic.

A home draw and avoiding the so called big guns, left in the competition.

So glad Dyche ignored my view of playing the reserves ! COYBs.

I'm pretty certain the game will be on the Wednesday (4 Nov) as we play at West Ham the previous Sunday.
Good news that we have a home game the following Saturday, just like this week. So come on Sean, keep playing the first-teamers all the way to Wembley.

Sorry the Wednesday that week is 1 November

A cup run would be good as long as we don't suffer any injuries after all I think the league & keep building on the squad we have is more important. Coyb.

As always Jim's post nails it yet again, a trophy we've never won.

We could fuck up a Semi-Final and still make Wembley, a chance of Euro footy under the lights at "The Old Lady" before the move to the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock — it's all there for us Blues!

We must grasp this great opportunity.

As good as it gets.

Burnley are no great shakes but won't be underestimated because of the Dyche connection.

I imagine he's been waiting to shove the eulogies about replacement, Vincent Kompany, right down their Turf Moor gobs for a while.

Jim, any thing can happen.

Let's see what happens this Saturday, and hopefully beat Luton.

This is the classic scenario, in view of Everton, and teams, not winning a game for x games, but I'm certain Everton, will break the ice at Goodson for this season, and beat Luton this weekend.

I hope the officials are up for all the shit tricks going, and Ross, if he starts.

They'll be doing every trick in the book.

How nice would it be to walk into BMD with an actual trophy to place in the cupboard and break out the brasso once more !!!!!
