Everton's saving grace is that there are a number of poor teams this season. I can't see Portsmouth, Sunderland or Fulham pulling away from them, and although they're doing well at the moment Wigan and WBA could get pulled back into things.

A good result for the toffees!

With Everton winning and City losing I think I might have a few e-mails in my inbox tomorrow morning.

Still at least I'm not ALB!

very much the form side at the moment. :D

btw, do we hold the record for the most 1-0 wins in the premiership?


As a % of total victories, we must do.

Did you realise that, up to the start of play today, we had collected 28 points from our last 28 league matches? That's grim.

I'd be freaking delirious with 10th at the end of the season. But I'm not talking about Everton.


Chelsea fan?

I thought we had a 'sell on' clause - we get a % of his next transfer fee?

I've always said Everton will escape, but yesterday's result makes me much less confident of that.
Sunderland and Portsmouth are gone already, it's just a question of which third team will join them and at the moment Everton do look the poorest.

It does appear at the moment to between them and Everton.
Everton are apparently one of the clubs after Keane. I think they've got a good chance of getting him as I think he'd want to stay in the north-west. I'm not sure he's what they need though.

Good result - a good second half performance as well.

Dodged a major bullet with the blatant McFadden handball - we've had a few go against us this season though, so I can live with 'swings & roundabouts'.

I have to say, Newcastle are the worst example of the sum being a great deal less than the parts though. Souness can't have long left to turn it around.

I thought Everton looked decent yesterday.

Weir and Yobo looked capable at the back, Arteta looks lively and if Van Der Meyde keeps playing like he did yesterday, I imagine they'll make chances which sooner or later, even Beattie will get. Definitely not relegation fodder, though - not when there's teams like Sunderland out there.

Folk'll say "oh, another boring 1-0 for Everton", but it was a quite enthralling game of footy and enjoyable, I thought.

I think they play better when Cahill performs-its as if he's the heartbeat of that side, but without being the huge personality on the pitch.
They did look fine yesterday, but equally, I though Newcastle looked petulant and lacklustre.
Is Beattie the new Peter Crouch?Or maybe I should say is Crouch the new Beattie.

Is that a really foppish way of saying they're an abysmal football team?

If so, you are correct.

:D

No.

Compared to Crouch, Beattie was a great signing.

Indeed. You shouldn't be as poor as you've looked when I've seen the Toon play recently.

Lots of the parts fit, but the team just doesn't... work.

And Bramble was shocking, yesterday. Nearly as bad as Mikael Silvestre...

Why? Sourpuss is doing a damn good job. One day, the Skunks will realise that everyone else is just laughing at them and their delusions of grandeur (or possibly delusions of adequacy).
