The magic of Goodison Park under the lights and the atmosphere that fired up Evertonians can generate have always been seen as a leg up for the Blues but flat performances and poor results under Roberto Martinez have blunted that advantage over the past couple of seasons.
From analysis undertaken of the most recent 38 league games played by every Premier League club under floodlit conditions home and away – results from fixtures with a kick off time of 5.30pm onwards during BST (August, September, October, April and May) and 4.00pm during GMT (November, December, January, February and March) – LED Hut have tried to determine which teams perform better under floodlights.
They compiled a table that puts Manchester United on top, Manchester City in second, 2015-16 champions Leicester City in eighth and Everton in a predictable berth of 11th. West Bromwich Albion would be in the bottom three alongside Aston Villa and Newcastle.

I'm positive we'll be better next season and so are most neutrals. I still think there's too much negativity around. I hope we don't appoint Moyes though, as I don't want to be charged with battery.
That enough? :D

Sportsgenearewe, are issuing Eric with a tape measure, where his task will be to measure the lengths of blades of grass, which way the grass is cut, then calculate which teams benefit the most.
