From my seat: Newcastle (H)

Last game of the season and Blues were out in force for this one as our local pub confirmed by the numbers in early, strangely the numbers in our ale house are a remarkably good guide to the days attendance. Today's turnout reflected the plus 39,000 at the game.

From my seat: Wolves (A)

Two points dropped from a game that drove this fan mad as we produced the football that should have ensured a comfortable victory but a combination of poor first touches and lack of shots when we were in the box did for us.

From My Seat: Fulham (H)

Ken Buckley returns from his enforced absence to witness lots of joined-up stuff.

From my seat: QPR (A)

QPR away and with them having a poor record on home soil gave many a Blue thoughts of three points but a disjointed performance saw us grateful to come away with just one point and on a unbeaten eight game run.

From my seat: Blackpool (Cup)

Ee- Aye-Addio, we're gonna to win the cup. A chant remembered from the 60s was embraced one way or another as we put the tie to bed within 7mins of the start.

From my seat: Wigan (A)

Another Howard howler has us on the back foot but Big Vic rose to rescue a point when, after such gritty and determined displays against both Fulham and City were set aside, we played as though it was our right to win and the build up play was so slow it gave Wigan a lift.

From My Seat: Fulham (Cup)

A win and in the next round of the cup. Not getting to carried away with it as cup ties are rarely any barometer of league form. It should serve to bolster confidence a little and perhaps bring a little more self belief back.

From my seat: Blackburn (H)

Blackburn, from the bottom three of the league, turn up with a handful of travelling fans and met a Blues side who seemed hell bent on taking their place in the bottom three, such was the apology for a game that I have witnessed at Goodison for some time.

We are through to the next round and, in FA Cup terms, nothing else matters.

Ken Buckley was at Goodison to watch in the wailing wind...

From my seat: Stoke City (H)

A good day out spoiled by a so called football match just about ruined many a Blue fans weekend.

From my seat: Wolves (H)

Mission achieved

From my seat: Man Utd (H)

Overall I found it a frustrating game as all through I thought Utd were there to be beat but we just did not seem to have the self-belief and afforded them too much respect.
by Ken Buckley : 29/10/2011

From my seat: Chelsea (H)

Chelsea again in quick succession, this time in the Carling Cup. Just over 23.000 of us assembled and were treated to a very entertaining game of footy, just a pity we lost.<
