With the transfer deadline looming, we don?t look like we are going to be bringing any players in apart from an unheard of Greek striker for ?250k. Somehow I don?t think he will be the answer to our goal drought. However, I think Louis Saha will be.
Against Tottenham, I thought we had signed a new player; he was immense, he chased down every lost cause, battled for every header, and played with confidence. Against Chelsea, he was like this again: he was battling Terry and had the better of him in most battles. But he was left up top alone and frustrated; Rodwell did his best to assist him, but Rodwell is not an attacking midfielder ? he is more of a holding player who bursts forwards with the ball, and is there at the edge of the box for a cut back.
What was pleasing to see on Saturday was that Arteta was showing glimpses of his old self; he wasn?t great but he is low on confidence and we need to get behind him not get on his back. He linked the right with the left very well, he was always looking for the ball, and he did not go hiding because he is not in great form.
Also I?d like to comment on Johnny Heitinga?s recent form. He has slotted in at the back superbly, he is keeping Jagielka out of the team and I think it shows how solid our defence is, we just need someone to score regularly and we will be pushing up the table.
I don?t think Europe is impossible, with the league being so open this season it is not an impossibility; I think it will be difficult but we have so much potential in our squad, we just need faith and have players who want to wear the royal blue shirt. The passion the players show on the pitch is getting back to the Everton Way. Now we just need to fight our way up the league, the Everton Way.
I think all these people who are campaigning for Kenwright to go need to just leave it till the end of the season; we are not Liverpool, we do not want marches before the games, and we do not want to sit in the Gwladys Street to tell him we want him out. If we want him out at the end of the season, we do it then ? not now.

The reason for the pessimism and disillusionment is well founded with a number of "senior" players exiting the club and none coming in to what is probably the smallest squad in the Premier League.
With Bullshit Billy showing no signs of selling up and having no Plan Z ? never mind an A or B ? we look as if we're heading downward at a rapid rate and it is unacceptable.

I've had to fork out so much of my money to travel down for the Arsenal game tomorrow night, it's a long journey and I have an early start the next morning. I treat the club with the utmost respect and yet they treat the fans like a bunch of pricks. It's really starting to wind me up.
