Yet another game won by a Martinez sub.

He's a bit of a footballing genius isnt he?

I remember one of the main criticisms of him when he came from Wigan fans was that he didn't know how to change a game...

Best thing for me about today, apart from the supersub again, our game management once we went ahead. We did it against Hull last week, and the same again today. They didn't have a sniff after we took the lead, and that is massively encouraging.

The thing thats amazing about Martinez vs Moyes (other than the subs obviously) is when were ahead with Martinez we just sit on possession and then hit them on the counter, with Moyes we'd just clear the lines as soon as possible.

I like how we keep the ball and draw them out a bit, we stay patient and wait for a good opportunity to speed up the play and create the chance.

Although we were helped by Lambert bringing on Helenius as it opened up more space in midfield for us.

Great win, and another 3 points in the bag! Another mediocre performance for long portions but some great incisive play and both Jags and Distin were strong at the back.

Howard MOTM though, kept the game within reach with some of those saves early on, and Osman making the difference playing higher up the pitch.

Only caught the second half but what I saw gives me great confidence in the team and especially the manager. RM knows when and what to do when it needs doing and for that I'm in.

Osman!

What a supersub ;)

Personally would have made the exact same sub. Barkley has been struggling and Osman is at his best playing off the striker. Honestly I think there is an argument for Osman to be starting in that position over Barkley (particularly given how poor Barkley has been over the last few games). But given that we would not want to shatter Barkley's confidence and the fact that Barkley gives us a bit more drive and impetuous I would continue starting Barkley and bringing Osie on if we need a change of pace.

I enjoyed that game immensely.We weren't great but what I liked is that we never had our heads down and always had the potential to score. Martinez seems to identify problems much quicker than Moyes did or he is at least more proactive about addressing them.

I have to say that I am not convinced Barkley would have made that pass to Lukaku that Osman made.

Could see Barkley taking the ball on himself there. Impossible to know really but you can see that a different type of player changed the game and Osman may even get himself the start next week with Barkley possibly playing the substitute's role.

I thought they'd won the league a few weeks back when they were top?

I think Wigan just didn't have any players to change it with to be honest.

But...but...Europa is the best Everton could possibly do!  That's all anyone on tv says, so surely it must be true, eh?
