I'm doing the stats update and noticed something amazing: in a seven-goal romp that was inspired in large part by the return of the mercurial Mikel Arteta, he was the last provider (and therefore credited with an 'assist') on not one single goal of those seven!!!
And guess who gets the credit for setting up two of the seven? None other than the much-maligned Phil Neville, who played ana absolutely critical role in that second goal ? which I think has to be my favourite.
Excellent touch, style, tricks and
feints from Arteta, finished by an exquiste nonchalant flick in to Neville, who had run in from deep and palyed an uneilevable ball right on to Cahill's toe. Timmy, facing the wrong way, under pressure, cotrols it with a beautiful first touch, and shows superb techique to power the ball fiercely into the net. Just a top-class goal that set us up for a tremendous performance and a fabulous victory.

Proves that Neville is a right back I think Michael. Every player gets 10 from me today. Couldnt of went better, 2 pens possibly turned down aswell!!!!
Last time we scored 7 we played a team in red & white stripes (southampton). Funny little stat for ya!!
We’re by far the greatest team.......the world has ever seen!!

Got to be aiming for 5th this season, and I may be optimistic but 4th is achievable....

Still room for improvement ? there will always be until we are winning the League and everything else! But today was a very very special day in David Moyes’s long and sometimes painfull bedding in as Everton manager. Six and a half years... 100 wins. FFS. That’s only 14 wins each year on average!

Let’s be honest the likes of derby and Sunderland are fucking useless!

Be warned: It does buffer but worth it for those who are out of the country etc

How long have we waited to see some of those touches and 7 goals.
Let's all enjoy the moment and congratulate the team.

Just watched the goals, its a sunny Sunday morning in New Zealand and I have a smile on my face that just will not go away.
Great win and well done David Moyes and the team
When I got up this morning I thought we really do need to put a team like Sunderland away, however I did not expect this result.

No point in enjoying a 7-1 win, we will be found out in the end.
