Shit this really happened didn't it?!Roberto really is the man!

There was so much to like from yesterday

The tactical awareness of the manager. Switching the roles around from the striker and attacking mids around was very clever. No one saw it coming but it worked a treat

The confidence which is flowing through the squad. Everyone has bought into the playing style now and just seems really comfortable. Loved the way we decided at 3-0 to just start taking the piss. The best right back of all time is doing mad skills on a player like Santi Cazorla, and instead of wellying it clear is doing keep ups whilst running at a pace which no one can catch him at which even ends in us getting a shot on target

Ross Barkley genuinely believes he can take on the world. And you know what?he actually can!

Look at the smile on Gerard Deulofeus face when hes about to be subbed on. And what does he do?take the piss out of Arsenal at his leisure!twisting and turning in the box and terrifying the life out of them

The aftermatch interviews were great too. Baines has turned into a leader and Barkley seems so self assured and aware that teams fear him

It seemed impossible a few weeks ago but weve got a great chance of getting champions league football. Individually all the players are doing great. Special shoutout to Tim Howard who has made some outstanding saves this season, and the defensive midfield duo of Barry and McCarthy who are vital to our play.

All of this is down to one man on the whole though. Roberto Martinez. Leader of the School Of Science
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Nine o'clock on Monday morning and Sir Stealth gets post of the week wrapped up! 

There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Just watching the re-run whilst lying in bed, everyon in the ground sing "Allez Allez..." after the third goal is spine-tingling.

I need to go on a diet. I've put on a couple of stone from all the Steven Naismith humble pie.
Never been so happy to be proven so wrong.

What a day and what a performance. Martinez wants arrogance and Seamus provided it in spades with his juggle run and THAT turn!! Seeing the Arsenal player hold his hands out in disbelief was joyous.. what a player he is. Barkley is world beating and as a team they were brilliant to a man... Stonesy had me screaming a few times but his positives out way his lack of experience..

I was lucky enough to follow the 80's team through the lean and the glory years and the tears during both... But, that performance was on par with their best...

Amazing stuff boys... I've got goose pimples just thinking about it.... City and Utd won't fancy us at home that's for sure.. Hail Bobby!!!

As this thread will be moved soon? Well!! yesterday was a great day to put into the blues good time memories file. A great performance and a great result. I never thought we would have any chance of re-igniting the 4th place CL spot. Well, as was mentioned a while back, a win at Newcastle, beat Arsenal at home and we'll be right back in the mix. And didn't the lads do us proud. Everyone of them now know, what's at stake and they're playing for that place without  qualms or lack of self belief. Yesterday Goodison was rocking. It took me back to the glory days. Are they on their way back? I think the uninitiated are starting to understand what the good times feel like. I know what they feel like. and myself, as well as many others, saw and felt the passion on view. Hang onto your hats, this could be a ride of G-force dimension. Will now be sorting my Passport (I think it was Blob who asked if their was a hidden message in my mentioning I needed to renew my passport a few months ago. No mate no hidden message.)  As there is little doubt in my mind, we will be in Europe in one competition or the other next year. ECL is the obvious favourite, It won't be easy, but who knows?........... Europe here we come. The best behaved away supporters on the Planet. Enjoy the ride.
