David Moyes has done another fantastic job for Everton this season.
Hamstrung by the club’s finances and their ‘sell to buy’ requirements, he’s once again juggled his resources, shuffled the pack and has the Toffees sitting just below the big hitters.
He just makes it look so easy too.
Organisation and discipline coupled with astute dealings in the transfer windows and voila! Top half guaranteed.
Nikica Jelavic is the latest bargain-buy, pinched from Rangers in January and already pinging them in left, right and center. He’s got 10 already.
Yakubu, Beckford, Saha and Arteta have all been moved on to balance the books, but that doesn’t seem to have prevented their customary upwards surge in the second-half of the season.
They’re unbeaten in their last 7 Premier League matches, dispatching Fulham 4-0 and taking a point at the Britannia in their most recent outings.
You worry for Wolves against any side that set out their stall and stay organised for 90 minutes. We just have an unwelcome propensity for self-implosion.
TC went 442 at Swansea last weekend and will probably do the same again. Unless we picked up any injuries I don’t know about, it will likely be the same eleven. I’d like to see an open game, for the sake of entertainment, so I’d go with that team:
If we do send that team out, I’m fairly certain we’ll concede, so as was the case against Swansea, we’ll need to score a few ourselves to be competitive.
Should the likes of Doyle, Fletcher and Jarvis impress, it wouldn’t surprise me to see any of them in an Everton shirt next season. I think they’re all players who could fit the criteria Moyes would be looking at.
Quite remarkably, nobody went for 4-4 against Swansea. However, 5 people did predict a draw.
So well done to me, Morph, Super Kev Doyle, robin and The Wanderer. Each of us take a point.
I’m hoping for a big performance to sign-off a catastrophic season of home-form and Everton are definitely due a defeat.
So against all logic and everything I’ve written above, I’ll go for a hopeful 3-1 Wolves.
If you’re at Molineux Sunday, have a great time and get behind the lads. I’m hoping we’ll get some words from our chairman after the game, which I think is the least we deserve.
Up The Wolves.
