Its nothing to do with playing home or away, its how the team approach the game.  There's nowhere better than Goodison for support (ask SAF, Mourinho, City managers etc). Their support away is also second to none.

The home fans have a right to expect a certain amount of effort, pace and desire. Its not bad play that makes them unhappy, its a bad approach and attitude.
The fans that pay to watch also have the right to express their opinion a lot more than those watching on TV or online.

If the players come out with the right one against City next week the fans will respond.

I dont think anyone was really that 'anti-Martinez'... we were just so frustrated that he was being stubborn and the team had lost their way through imposing his passing philosophy to the exclusion of so much else.

He has so many great attributes and I have been proud to have him as our manager, so its great that he's now adapting and the it looks like the team are thriving again.

Early days but a HUGE step in the right direction.

So much of yesterday's success was down to great attitude, intensity and work-rate.  Personnel, tactics and formation mean nothing if you haven't got these.

Just like in Martinez' first season, if you can ally the two then you have a great chance of making the best of the player's own abilities.

The player's have to take most of the responsibility for this and they cant go back to thinking they are superior to the opposition without proving it. You have to win the 'battle' before you can play.
