You have to think the top 3 now will be the top 3 at the end of the season.
4th doesn't flatter us. OK, we haven't played some of the top sides yet, but we have played 6 away games, and yesterday's not the first time we've been unlucky not to get 3 points.
This is the most exciting Everton team we've seen since the Premier League began. We've got two of the best attacking full backs in the league, we've got players like Pienaar and Miralles who can create chances out of nothing. We've been creating more chances than any team in Europe, and you just know the goals are going to come. If we hadn't fallen behind early on in our last five Premiership games we could easily have won all five - as it is we didn't lose any of them.
Obviously our squad's a bit thin, but I've a feeling there's a lot to come from Naismith and Oviedo, and then there's Barkley too ... And we'll probably pick up a player or two in January : maybe Ofoe, maybe a striker.
Anything less than top 6 will be a disappointment. Bring on Arsenal and Spurs !
