I have been relatively quiet on here for a couple of months now. My silence hasn’t been through a disinterest in the Blues, if anything it has been the total opposite.
Throughout a difficult spell where we lost away at Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea and exited the cup at Arsenal I retained by belief in Roberto’s project. When the pace of our football at Goodison has not enthralled the crowd I have maintained to anyone who is prepared to listen (and received my fair share of stick on twitter for it) that this is only the start of something much bigger.
Five league wins in succession and everyone is beginning to believe that we are on the verge of something special. On Sunday a sell out Goodison crowd need to stick with Roberto and the team. We may not be 4-0 up after 20 minutes like our foes from across the park, but we don’t need to win the game in the first half.
I don’t normally do rallying cries, but…We as supporters owe it to the players to stick behind them for the entire 90 minutes. We need to push them on if the games looks like it is ebbing away from us. And we need to remain patient if the games becomes a battle of the tiki taka. This is the biggest game for Everton since we narrowly lost the 2009 Cup final. Let’s make sure we get behind the team!
