Final Night Game of the Season

Comments (5)

I'll be honest with you, I've not been looking forward to tonight's game at all. After recent poor (maybe even pathetic) performances, coupled with injuries to some of our most attacking and creative players I've not really been able to see how we're going to improve enough to beat a team chasing Premier and Champions (HA!) League glory.

But then I visited the official website and took a look at the goals of the season awards section. Almost half of them are from night games, mostly in the Uefa cup. Goals such as Osman's against Larrisa after a cracking flowing move, AJ's belter against Brann and not to forget Arteta's pin-point finish from distance on that memorable (if ultimately gut wrenching) night against Fiorentina made my neck hairs stand to attention. I'd forgotten how many great memories I had from this season.

My point is, we've got one more chance for a memorable night at Goodison tonight. The atmosphere can be tremendous at times and when I think of the noise we made against Fiorentina, I'm sure that drove the players on to produce the best performance of the season.

I know there's no chance of the atmosphere quite reaching those heights tonight, but if we get behind the team early doors and not get on their backs when a few passes go amiss (cough, Neville!) then maybe we can have just one more memorable night at the old lady this season.

And remember the noise in the Carling Cup semi against the same opposition. It sent shivers down my spine we were that loud it was awesome.
One of the loudest nights I have experienced.

For those of us having to watch on tv this evening i hope that the sound mix doesn’t manage to make it sound really quiet like the carling cup semi.

I reckon we get at the team before they even arrive, like THAT Wimbledon game.

That should sort that horrible twats out.

I dont even think the atmopshere at the Chelsea semi final was anywhere near as good as the Fiorentina game.
