Ok this thread might sound pretty dumb but I just wanna say it.
I would like to thank the players, Bill Kenwright and especially David Moyes.
I have been an Evertionian since I could walk, my dad took me to see us lift the trophy in 87 and I have been addicted ever since.
I'm a proud Everton fan and always have been, but this season I feel a different kind of pride...
going into the Man City game, they were on form, taking Man U apart, one of the best home records in the league, but I knew, I KNEW we were going to win, our players would go out and do the business...
this is the best Everton team I have ever seen, the way they play, the individual talent, the team work and I would like to stand up an appluad Davie Moyes for what he has done to our club.
bringing in skill, attacking prowess and rock solid defence. I am truly proud of the boys this season. more goals scored then the shite. better football then the shite. when i see us taking teams apart and look over the park and see Beneathus playing 10 men behind the ball and hoofing it to gerrad/torres then you see us, real style, goals from all over the pitch, it truly does bring a smile to my face. (as soon as we realize that we can hold our own with the 'big 3' then we can move to an even bigger stage).
k you lot can take the piss if you want but I wanted it said.

thank you, thank you so much, the term 'School of Science' has never been more apt.

No piss taking here.

Fine post, personally think we've got a little way to go before we quite reach the heights you describe, but we're well on the way and there's definitely a special feel about the club this year that we haven't had since the eighties.

I second all of that, its great to be blue again at last it really is, were not there yet but we most certainly are getting there again I feel!! & I was a season ticket holder in the 80's & at the match Vs Bayery & it definitely feels nice to know how well Davey, the board, the team & supporters have built something up, long may it continue!!!!

We do still hoof the ball a bit, nowhere near as much as we have in the past but there are still a lot of improvements we need to make. It is good to be a blue atm though :) .

^^^ YEAH. ^^^ started hoofing it in the last half hour against City.
After Pienaar went off we had nobody who could play football, so it was clear the lines to Yak and AJ.

there was like 5-10 mins when everytime we smashed it far as we could, with noone there...which was like the last couple of mins hanging onto a 1-0 in the cup final. it was embarrassing, slightly better later on though.

nice one Thompson, good post.

I think it's only to be expected when you're away from home, leading in a very important match that players get a little edgy and hoof the ball in the last 20 mins or so, I'd rather they do that than do a Fernandez and get caught in dangerous positions and nearly cost us goals. I think Pienaar is a great player but I didn't think he was overly spectacular the other night, Yakubu, Osman, even Cahill and Carsley all had fine games on the ball. I think the performance was faultless on Monday personally, apart from Fernandez' 10 minute cameo.
