Come on Everton

#1
Not long to go now until the game i think we can beat chelsea im not saying its a certainty but it can be done if everyone is at the top of thier game with the crowd behind them. Ive had cahill 1st goal and a 2-1 win 55/1 not bad odds as long as we dont have any daft mistakes we could be at wembley next month COYB!!!

Doesnt a 2-1 to Everton at 90 min mean extra time? 55-1 isnt that great if you cant possibly win is it?!

Anyway,

COYB!!!!

2-0 with goals from Lescott and Cahill.

We just weren't good enough last night. No excuses.

Still gutted though.

Will just have to focus on the 'Waffer' Cup and 4th place in the League now....

(*crosses fingers for at least one of them)

Fair enough. It really rankles though doesn't it?

I hate watching my team and knowing they are not performing to their potential (a la against Man U and any number of other teams this season).

Do you think you played as well as you could S_S or did they leave a bit in reserve and just not make the required breakthrough?
I only saw the tail end of the highlights.

Incidentally do you know anything about the "A" celebration started by AJ and now picked up by a few strikers?

We needed an early goal and nearly got one after about 20 mins. Apart for a 10 min period around the 60 min mark, we never troubled them really again.

Their goal killed it off and after that we looked beaten.

I'm dispaointed - of course I am; but I can't be that biased to say we deserved to go through because on the night we simply didn't deserve to.

The 'A' thing relates to a scheme aimed at getting school kids to stay in school and get better grades or something.....

It's all about trying to get 'A' grades or some such horseshit....

Is it not a Mickey Mouse cup anymore then?
Everton fans never said it was. We would have loved to have won it.

The only teams that truly regard it as 'Mickey Mouse' are Man Utd and Arsenal as they ALWAYS always play their youth sides.

It's only Mickey Mouse to Liverpool as soon as they are out. Funny how it never is if they win it, eh...??

Anyway - we're out so it's all a bit academic isn't it...??

Only because I read something about it the other day.
An increasing number of players have adopted a goal celebration where they appear to form the letter 'A' with two fingers from one hand pointing down and the index finger of the other hand forming the horizontal bit," writes Phil Horton. "All I can come up with is a similarity with the 'Anarchy' symbol. Do you know any better?"Yes we do, Phil. The sign represents A-Star, an organisation set up by the QPR defender Fitz Hall, the Everton and England forward Andy Johnson, Ken Bonsu and Ronnie Wilson to counter the increasing problems of violence among young people in Britain today. Mirroring the government's message that "every child matters", A-Star operates "to influence young people to be the best they can be and to realise that they themselves are stars." A-Star also aims to offer real opportunities for all young people, by providing a wide range of activities in which they can take part and eventually even help them find employment in a chosen field.
"This is a great chance for professional footballers to truly give something back," explains Hall, who has benefited from the support of a growing number of fellow professionals, including Emile Heskey, Micah Richards and Leighton Baines. "Kids can come out from their local neighbourhood and win the A-Star contract," enthuses Baines, who is still awaiting his first opportunity to give his own celebration since moving to Everton in August.
