I'm so nervous about this match. It's one of those potential banyan skins. I was ok until I watched the Arse last night. Those who are going make it a cauldron of noise so Palace shit themselves. Think ill go to the gym tonight and just keep my head down rather than watch or listen

........there used to be an industrial site opposite the Taxi Club ,not sure if it's still available OR the school yard by Walton church. Both are difficult to get out of after.
We are special ,we are Everton.

I've changed my mind, the result isnt the only important thing. We need to better our GD, theres a chance we could win all out games and draw with city (which isnt beyond the realms of possibility) , meaning it would go to GD. So you'd have to say on the palace and hull games, we'd need to win by 2-3 goals. Considering its highly possible with arsenals fixtures they could get some 4/5 nils

I don't think that you can go out with the idea of having to batter anyone.

That raises the issue that you already expect to win and that it's just a matter of how many. This is always dangerous from a complacency point of view for the players and also an impatience issue from the crowd.

If the game is there to get a heavy score line then we should push for it, obviously, but the first objective has to be to win the game.

Fuck it, I'm over it now...

Justice has to prevail after Scudamore's disgraceful but totally unsurprising comment, and the Premier League cartel appointing Agent Clattenburg  to keep us in our place on Sunday.

Let's all get behind the boys till the end, whether we attend the games, or are in our armchairs, or hear another know nothing neutral bellend at work saying how Liverpool winning the league would be 'good for the game' and 'Everton shouldn't be where they are because of all their loans'

Come on you fucking blues!  :cheers:

I'm quite relaxed about tonight (or maybe I'm trying to convince myself that I'm quite relaxed). As a coping strategy, I'm just telling myself that if we don't beat Palace at home when the pressure is on, we're probably not a CL team anyway, and then EL is more the level we're at.

A whole lot of ifs

Lets make sure we get 3 points

I was worrying that Sunderland were going to be this year's Carlisle (in terms of losing twice to a relegated side that costs us a significant achievement...) but we've busted that one.

On to the next!

I thought the same. Had mixed feelings about the Sunderland game. I'll miss seeing the Palace game as well. Wish it was played yesterday.

And only City can do the double over us this season now.

Haha, let the pressure in, it would/will feel great if/when it's relieved!

I've decided to look at it as seeing where we are after each round of fixture.

Having to win another 5 games in a row seems a heavy task; but if we break it down it seems easier. For instance even a draw tonight would see us in 4th with 4 games to go.

its going to be 70% possession to us, and it is all down to Everton and how we use the ball.

We need to play 2 wingers in this one, and would be tempted to start with both Mcgeady and Deloufeu to break them down.

they will sit back and play counter attacking football, which they are very good at doing.

Can't see him being much use tonight, they'll be so compact that he won't be able to use his pace.

Best bet I think is to use our 'clever' players who can move about their defence to create gaps.

I'd go:

Howard

Coleman - Stones - Distin - Baines

              Barkley - Barry
McGeady     Naismith    Osman     
                  Lukaku               

McCarthy hasn't done anything to deserve dropping but playing two defensive midfielders seems redundant when we knkow palace will sit back and hit us on the break. Maybe play McCarthy over Barry as he can cover more ground when Palace break.

I was thinking this would be an ideal game for McGeady to start.

When this game was postponed earlier on the original team sheet had McGeady starting if I remember rightly.

Wouldn't be surprised to see him start tonight.
