I think we definitely have the respect we deserve in this league now, although it depends how high you rate the opinion of a Man U fan.
Here is a quote off the bbc's 606 forums.

Oh dear !
Gutless, spineless, devoid of inspiration - Spuds were truly awful. Many players in crucial areas were seen strolling around when their defence was besieged by a ravenous Everton attack that was full of purpose, pace, power and above all hunger.
Zakora and Jenas provided nothing of substance. In fact the pair must've worked in conjunction with the London authorities to give Neville, Osman and Co the freedom of town and the entire midfield! The Spuds defence was so stretched that Younes Kaboul decided to retire after 18 mins to consider his options, quite possibly!
For me Arteta was the catalyst behind Everton's counter attacking forays spearheaded by the energetic Johnson and young Anichebe. Nevile and Carsley provided steel and Osman the forward thrust from midfield.
Defensively Everton were sound, had a few scares here and there but overall contained a very impotent Spuds frontline.
Never thought I'd say this but I was impressed and entertained by the display. Everton now set the pace at the summit of the FAPL, early days yet but so far it seems the underdogs are having their say. Underestimate them at your peril!
