I don't think there's any outcome that would surprise me here.

Welcome to Roberto Martinez's Everton.

Edit: Sadly, I rate conceding a late, soul-crushing goal that forces a replay as the most likely outcome. But I'm also heavily pessimistic by nature.

Second Edit: An optimist might say that forcing a replay with a late goal is more likely.

There is a light and it never goes out...

I like the idea of Pienaar and Deulofeu on the wings, though.

A double-decker bus crashing onto the pitch is one of the few outcomes that would surprise me.

Defo want us to win, and think it should be an entertaining game. Just don't think I'll feel that bad if we lose, at least not comparable to last week, the Swansea game and the City semi second leg.

Roberto's mindfuck of building up expectations, and then absolutely destroying them unceremoniously has worked. I just feel numb and confused.

Yep. I'm right there with you.

The rational part of me knows that West Brom could have scrapped for that 1-0 win against anyone last week but... the less rational part of me is sick of seeing crap teams mug us for 3 points at home, however it happens. I'm really not sure how to feel about the Roberto Martinez era at the moment and my biggest concern is that the final third of this season won't give us a definitive answer and that we'll remain in this limbo indefinitely.

Hell of a bench.

I'm fine with Kone not being on the bench unless he decides he wants to start shooting.
