In a Goodison Park that seemed to answer the call from our forums, and from Unsworth himself, this week, the Blues were roared on by a partisan crowd.
The stand-in boss beamed with pride as he gave what many feel will be his last post-match interview as Everton manager – for now at least – and said that the crowd got his team back into the game.
“The second half had everything didn’t it?” he beamed.
“But it was an Everton performance in the second half and the crowd were amazing.
“The crowd have got us back into that game without a shadow of a doubt.
“Oumar got a great goal to get us back into it.
“I’m so proud of our great club tonight.
“I’m proud of the fans and the players and the way we got ourselves back into the game.
“Great fight and spirit, and that’s what you need when you’re at the bottom of the table.
“We didn’t give in and we’ve climbed up the table and it looks better than it did before the game.
“We’ve given the players some confidence. Nobody wants to go into the international break without winning the last game.
“Every day since I’ve had the honour of standing in as manager I’ve given my all and I’ll continue to do that if somebody else comes in.”
