I had almost forgot what it was like to enjoy being inside Goodison.

thought our biggest crime apart from gifting them a soft goal was not getting the ball to lukaku's feet way more often

We did it more than we usually have done this season to be fair.

Thought we were great today.

The only two "gripes" would be Barry looks shot and has run out of ideas, and Barkley looks lost and needs some fresh impetus. Other than that that side today is going in the right direction, the one we know what they're capable of. Coleman and Baines were back to their normal selves, Robles was full of confidence, Lukaku is just becoming a pest and are we now seeing what Besic is all about? I thought he was great, never gave the City midfield/defence a minutes peace.

We deserved a win today, couldn't give a fuck what their fans or pundits say, they don't like coming here.

Cunts.

Robles deserves a metric fuckton of credit, he's really turned it around the last two games (which have represented 8-level goalkeeping, in my book).

Narrowly gave MotM to Lukaku, both he and Besic were fantastic today.  Stones also very good.

I think a draw was a fair result.  They created more chances, we created better chances.  Watching them play, I think they have more quality than Chelski, and those two are miles ahead of everyone else.  Proud that we brought our A (well, A-) game today, and stood toe-to-toe with them.

Nice to enjoy a Saturday for a fucking change, thanks Toffees!!

Much brighter and hard working performance from the team. Everyone looked sharper, more mobile and pressed higher up the park, which was great to see.

I'm apprehensive about West Brom coming to Goodison next Monday as, unlike today, they'll sit deep and we'll have to find a way to break through their defensive mentality, which will be difficult as the players aren't full of confidence naturally.

Beating West Ham on Tuesday, which will be difficult as it's West Ham and it's away from home, and getting an early goal next Monday, before going on to win that game too, would do wonders for us, but I'm sure everyone is feeling cautiously optimistic after today's showing.

Biggest difference I've seen this week, is everybody looks proud to be playing for the Everton shirt again.  We all needed to see that.  My spirits are much, much better as a result.

Much, much better today. To get s point was a decent result but to get some sort of performance too was really good news. I was largely happy with most of the team and would give extra praise to Besic, Lukaku, Barry and Stones. It really is quite astonishing how good John Stones is and I fear he will be the one that teams will be after in a year or so.

Upon reflection though, every result went against us today and the reality is that despite a better performance, we are three points of relegation with one of the bottom three, Hull, having comfortably beaten us less than two weeks ago.

West Ham replay is the best thing that can happen. Confidence is growing so the more games the better at the moment, a cup win on Tuesday will set us up nicely and build a bit more confidence for the weeks ahead.

Only negative for me today was Barkley. The poor lad was anonymous and doesn't seem to know what to with the ball, how to defend or where to be positionally. He's got no confidence and I dont see continuing to play him doing him any good at the moment.

He's a bit like Bilyaletdinov used to be in that he's mostly poor but comes up with the odd vital or amazing goal and we all love him and he gets away with it for another few weeks...
