I'm immensely proud of Everton's work-ethic, and I hope we keep being recognised for it.

As long as they also recognise we're playing some great football at the moment :lol:

Not to pile on, but I agree. We try to grind out results against the top 4.

We play solid at the back (In fact, we are almost playing with 2 defensive midfielders now that Arteta has a new role), capitalize on set pieces, and rely on other teams to get sloppy. Teams like Manchester United will always be favorites against this because of their patience, but I'd go as far to say we are the best set piece team in the attacking third.

Now yes, we did play some attractive stuff against Bolton. If you didn't notice though, our ability to finish from open play is actually pretty bad, besides Cahill and the Yak. That game should've easily been 5-0 or 6-0 honestly.

let's not forget that Man U, Arsenal and Liverpool are considered not only some of the best in england, but in the world, and apart from against Manchester United we didn't do bad at all: we were better then liverpool last game (arguable, i know), and definatly better than arsenal.

I think it is an advantage that not every one reckognises our good football, let them underestimate us :)

We did do some good pieces of football against Arsenal but I think that the reason for such a good month was down to sheer hard-work. Once the Liverpool game was out of the way we could get back to playing 'naff' teams and this allowed us to play football.

We'll see a lot more skill in the next few games from the whole team (including J)

Two sides to it though

Unrecognised - Underestimated, and this helps us to win games
Recognised - Much better quality of players to attract. Moutinhio would come in a flash if we boasted Champions League status.
