I can't believe the naivety of some fans who expected us to take the game to Man Utd and then crack on with going all out for the win near the end.
It's not being small-minded being happy with the level of performance yesterday and would anyone have been critical if we had got the point we deserved and would have got if it hadn't been for one individual error?
If anything, in playing the way we did yesterday, we were making a statement that we were now in the group of clubs who can look to challenge Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea. What I mean is if you look at the games that the so called big 4 play against each other and which the media love to build up as classics, they are all cagey affairs, with little flowing football and in all cases the away team takes a very cautious approach. Good examples of this were the 2 games last week between Arsenal v Chelsea and Liverpool v Man U, and despite all the plaudits there are for Arsenal's style, let's just see what sort of approach they take at Old Trafford.
Let's have a reality check lads. This is an Everton team moving forward, competing on all fronts and I for one haven't been so positive going into the second half of a season since the glory days of the mid-80s.
