🎙ToffeeWeb Podcast: “Still There Fighting”

Tuesday, 3 May, 2022 8comments  |  Jump to last

Lyndon, Paul and Adam are still buzzing from Sunday's terrific win over Chelsea and they chat about the heroics from Jordan Pickford and Richarlison and look ahead to the trip to Leicester where the Blues have the chance to build some momentum in their bid to avoid the drop. They also ponder whether Pickford's wonder save has an equal from past Everton keepers

I want to download that title photo. Amazing!!!

Enough has been said about the fans. As I walked to my ritual at the Goodison Supper Bar, I thought it was the Chelsea bus being targeted but quickly came back to my senses. We are not Kopites and it was the Everton team being welcomed and urged on with a passion that cannot be replicated by anyone else. No other club.

The important thing is that we are seeing the players stand up and be counted. With the season we've had and that kind of pressure that a fan surge like that could have induced in the circumstances, they could have folded. Especially when you consider how fragile the mentality has been this season. Maybe that is what Frank is installing. Changing the culture. Changing the mindset. Now change the structure.

We are unique. I don't care what anyone says. When we win our next trophy, it will be like a nuclear weapon has hit the banks of the Mersey. No other club's supporters can compete. You could see the Chelsea supporters, usually famed for their arrogance beaten into submission on Sunday.

It's been one of the most emotional seasons I can recall. Let's get it over the line. Leicester, Watford, Brentford and Palace. 12 points to be had. I'll take 10 and a last day win at the Emirates.

Final comment; thank you Lyndon and team for the effort you put into maintaining this website and these podcasts. It must take up so much of your time, but is without doubt the best and most knowledgeable football forum I know. And I do follow those of other clubs just to get an alternate view as well as living with a Villa fan, so I am not saying that with Everton tinted glasses on.

And as I said on other threads, I was directly in line with that Pickford save. I watched it again last night and still don't know how it didn't go in.

Genuinely has to be one of the best saves by an Everton keeper (at least) ever? For different reasons but on a par with Southall's at White Hart Lane?

One thing that keeps coming to mind is that the fans played a huge part in that win... but they're not responsible for the professionalism and shithousery that contributed to us getting the win.

That's Frank. That's having a winner at the helm. Anything goes - in fact everything goes. There's one aim and they'll do everything it takes.

Remember how loathsome some of those Mourinho teams were? That's us now. I don't care - only survival matters. But give Frank the credit for that.

Thanks fir that guys. really enjoyed it. I agree with Lyndon that the atmosphere before the Coventry match was like a family meeting up before a funeral of a loved one. Thankfully afterwards we didn't need a wake !!

The save from Pickford was very special and deserves to go down in Goodison folklore as the save that kept us up.

Here's Nev - including the FA Cup double save, the Falcao one and the Sheff Wed save too.

One of the greatest saves I can remember was by Gordon West at Goodison in a league cup replay in October 1969. The save was at the Street End, at point blank range from Bobby Gould. With no TV coverage only those of us who were there on the night will remember it.

The way the team bus emerged from the blue mist made my hairs stand on end!! However, Delph did not look too happy and Lampard seemed a bit miffed getting off the bus.

Super pod as usual. Thanks chaps

Paul: good point regarding Carlo taking Pickford out of the firing line and giving him a much needed (mental) rest.

Lyndon: really important but overlooked point about a Frank matching the Chelsea formation. That was a tactical masterclass but seems to have gone under the radar.

Love these pods. Particularly when we win!

Great podcast. Nice to see the NBC coverage audio post-game.

And I agree with Lyndon. If I could just fast forward to the end of the season, I probably would. It's too stress-inducing!!
