"Tim, good game apart from their goal. Were you having nap? Otherwise good handling, punching and distribution."
"Tony, thought you got caught out of position a few times son. Looks like you`ll get a few games now. No other option. A couple of good crosses though. Pity Duncan Ferguson wasn't playing!"
"Phil, solid today son. Great goal. Kept it down well. Should really score more though. Some good balls forward."
"Sylvain, Good game son, but please don't dribble when you are last man."
"Leighton, what would we do without you, son? I know you are missing Peanut and not getting to the line so often, but keep taking free-kicks like that and we will be in Europe next year."
"Phil, pity about the injury, son; thought you were doing well in the holding role. Gave that twat Nolan a bit too much room at times though."
"Ossie, brilliant thinking for that goal son. Most of us would have hit that first time. Amazing you thought about putting that through the defenders legs. Thought you could have had a couple more though.... again!!"
"Jack, passing is getting better but remember you are allowed to pass forward too. Not just back and sidewards... and shooting practice for you next training!!"
"Mikel, that's more like it, son; looked like something was going to happen every time you got the ball. Christ, you even let Pip take a free kick. More of the same!"
"Louis, not happy with you son. For a player with your ability, I think we are getting too little in return. Should have had at least three today. Sloppy finishing. All I can say is 'must do better'. How are the legs by the way?"
"Becks, Not bad son, some sloppy passing, but at least we saw you run at defenders today. About bleeding time. A couple of good efforts, unlucky not to get on the sheet."
"Johnny, disappointing son. For a player who has played in the World Cup Final, you make some strange passes. Looks like you will get some games now, so time to grow up."
"Victor, not bad. A couple of nice things today! You are obviously lacking confidence, but if I use you then try using the inside of your head too. Should have downed that prick Nolan, would nearly have been worth a red card. Oh, and don't go reading ToffeeWeb again."
"Seamus, Ok, still looking a bit tired. Thought you could have done better with Victor's cross though."
"All-in-all, a lucky three points, lads, we made hard work of it and should have sown it up earlier. Right, have a day off tomorrow, lads, Birmingham on Wednesday. Meet at Goodison at 5pm. Not you Becks, you are staying at mine Tuesday night, and Louis, take a bus!!! COYB."

I'm getting a picture of an awkward Tuesday night tea with Mrs Moyes asking "Would the boy like another slice of ca.."
And Moyes (wiping egg yolk off a plate with bread) interrupting..
"Ach, he's fine Morag......right, seven-thirty, half an 'oors telly son then away to your bed!"

Just watching Spurs v Wolves - amazing what a bit-part Peanuts is in the Spurs team. The gap between them and us is HUGE.

Ron, that HUGE gap was there for all to see not that many weeks ago at Goodison Park when Spurs walked all over us and showed us just how good they are and how bad we can be... Oh hang on a minute, er we won that one, didn't we?

ps: Nice one, Tony, if you're going to do a Reading post match allow for sound effects of cups hitting the wall.

Firstly, man for man, our first eleven is as good if not better than theirs. We have taken 4 points off them which reflects that. However, when they look to the bench, they have millions of quid sitting on it. We have Victor Anichebe.
Secondly, Pienaar is not as good at Spurs because he doesn't have Leighton Baines behind him. As both Leighton and Seamus showed when Spurs came to town, their full backs are not the greatest. So come on ? the gap is not HUGE.

Nah, good shit man.

Meantime, the team play well, win well and deserve praise for this. Fine, take the piss in the name of humour, but to do so after that victory doesn't sit right somehow.

Otherwise, I don't expect to come onto an Everton website where people are saying Spurs are superior to us. They finished beneath us in the 00s a lot, lost in the only real head-to-head we had in the 1990s and came behind us when their so-called great team (Hoddle, Waddle and that biased twit Crooks) were playing in the 1980s.
Yes, they are having a good time but they might not get in the Champs League this season which will only make Harry (an Arsenal fan as a boy) look at Fabio's hotseat.
The term HUGE is what I have problems with.

"HUGE" is of course a relative term, there is a conversation I have with my missus about something HUGE, she laughs and calls me a dreamer. Is "LARGE" any better?? probably not, my missus is still laughing!!!!

It's the biggest dodge in the history of this club that he never renewed at £75k/wk with us.

Tony, excellent article, keep these coming after every match if you can, absolutely spot on with practically everything, lol.
