...but a well earned win. Bolton had no intent of playing a football game but just to grind out a draw. Well played to the lads for being patient, and also the fans for being patient and wait for the brakethrough, flukey if it was.
The players look to have a confidence that has a never say die attitude. Well played again to all.

Oh, and did you all see Neville running up to Andy Holden and giving him a big ’ole hug? They were all laughing their socks off at the bench too :-)

Once again I must say that our best player was Pienaar....I feel this guy is class...and if bought will turn out to be better for us than Arteta. He?s much more involved in games than Arteta...has better vision (I believe), better engine, even better at defending when he has to.
Now I don?t want to start a Pienaar vs Arteta row (how good it is to have both in our team?) but it is how I feel. We will miss this guy when he?s off to Africa....BIG TIME. We have been playing such nice football lately, and if you watch it, every good move involves him...either at the beginning...middle...or end of the move, fantastic!!!! It?s so long since I?ve seen this kind of play from Everton. He reminds me of a smaller version of Trevor Steven.
We gotta get this lad on board. £2mil??? Jayus...I?d pay £15mil for him at today?s prices! If this guy is out of our team for any reason in the coming matches, we?ll notice a BIG difference!!!!!!
Happy new year all you blues!!!!!!!!

its funny how we all see things differently.
I think Pienaar runs round like a headless chicken and almost cost us again yesterday when he overplayed near his own penalty area.
He puts a high work rate in and is occasionally skilful but too often for me runs around aimlessly.

Fair enough, I respect your opinion, but just cannot agree with you on this one. However, I will agree with you when you say " its funny how we all see things differently"

So far this season we always seem to have 6 or 7 candidates for "MOM" a sure sign of how improved we are this season..My MOM was Jags..he had a class , pacey international in his pocket..one of the best defensive displays this year...But I understand the choice of Lescott, Arteta or Pienaar as well..its just a pleasure to watch.

He made one mistake yesterday. The last kick of the game where he knocked it out for a corner but other than that he was good. Hardly cost us the game as we where 2-0 up with about 50 seconds left. When did he overplay? Do you mean when he skinned there winger and cleared the ball? Thats called being calm and collected and he had the confidence to do it which impresses me especially after his mistake last week.
How does he run round aimlessley? He covers his fullback better than most which shows he is a team player aswell as a flair player. He’s our most creative player and his final ball is better than Arteta’s. He has 7 assist in all competitions aswell as scoring 2 goals. He’s not as flashy as a Fernandes or an Arteta but when he gets the ball in the final third I am very confident he will crete something.
Quality player and very consistent. A snip at 2 million.

Pienaar is quite possibly the BEST player we have got. His pass through to Andy Johnson for our first goal away at Bolton made me think we had somebody out of the ordinary. Game after game he gets better.
I think your post is a wind-up. Nobody could be that stupid.

Not so long ago our MOTM choices were Arteta, Arteta or Arteta. Now we have a clutch (is that the right term?) of MOTM candidates to choose from.
16 Posted 27/12/2007 at 19:35:31
But, better than Arteta i don’t think so.
