Assists... and my fave goal

Comments (16)

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.

Saddly at work, but tried to watch the game over t’internet and whilst most of it was infuriatingly a static mess with the occassional burst of French (I think), I did manage to see Pieanaar’s glorious goal. Surley that’d be Nuno’s assist?

Fantastic stuff, absolute dreamland I’m in.

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!!

Almost perfect performance attacking wise and in midfield. Defending needs improving with the goal and the sitter missed, but apart from that and Yobo?s injury it was superb. Osman was mercurial in my estimation.

Isn’t it about time Moyes ditched this boring 4-5-1 line up and played some more attacking football. I’m fed up with his boring approach!!!!!!!!

The second goal was great, but Osman’s was breath taking. Unbelievable performance

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

BELIEVE folks...

I don’t believe it was you Michael who posted that. Get fucking real, we were playing shit and on today’s showing Marine would have beaten Sunderland. Yes, we’re improving but don’t get carried away-do that to the top four and then e’ll be a team!

Yea, Clem, it’s good to keep setting those high goals but today we achieved something under David Moyes that I have been waiting for for a long long time. You are right in that only one of the last seven games have been against a really top-teir side ? and that’s the one we did not win.

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!

By my maths he has been manager since 14 March 2002 which would make it just over 5.5 yrs or 18 wins a yr

Which isn?t that bad

Don’t be fooled,the season will end in heartbreak as any decent side will find the weaknesses in our defence-starting with Lescott and Yobo!
Let’s be honest the likes of derby and Sunderland are fucking useless!

Spot on Danny. Every team has to be beaten and today Sunderland were well beaten.
How long have we waited to see some of those touches and 7 goals.
Let's all enjoy the moment and congratulate the team.

Thanks Joe Jennings
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.

Great post michael. We played some beautiful football today that would have been present against any team. Yes Sunderland were very poor but you can only beat what is put in front of you, and boy did we do that. Get behind the lads and perhaps we will be seeing more days like this.

Well said Alan, all we need is a bit of realism hey?

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