Of course this will all go tits up eventually, we're riding our luck.  But right now Martinez is working miracles.  

This is the best I've seen from an Everton team since the eighties.   Rejoice!
It's a difference of attitude.
The whole club have a positive approach. It showed today. As you say, we would have drawn that game last year, or maybe worse, but a positive mindset saw us through.
The lack of McCarthy highlighted how well he has played.  Although Ossie had a reasonable game, Macca keeps the game tidy, and with Barry, ensures a solid middle.  Today, we saw Barkley coming deeper than he normally does, Ossie without the clout of McCarthy, Seamus not always on the same wavelength as Foofoo, messy link-ups, and the rest of the team not quite at their 100% level of the last 2 games.
4-1 will do us well. Good sides win bad games. Let's throttle the Swans necks next week.  Are we allowed to do that?

yes bang on about McCarthy.  I was thinking Barkley was deeper than usual, and that was probably why - either Robbie had told him he needed to drop back to give Ossie some help, or he was just drawn back cos Fulham were playing a higher pressing game than Arse or Mancs - but he didn't have his best game that's for sure.  Seamus has been one of our most improved players this season - he seems to be coming inside more often rather than just bombing down the wing, and both his goals in recent games have come for inside the box, quite central positions.  There is a lot of mobility about the team right now, everyone is turning up everywhere, it's exhilarating at times.

I really thought this was going to be the game when it all went wrong. But that'll probably be next week....
....and you were doing so well until the last 6 words.....

5th top scorers. Joint best defence. Goal difference of +12! When was the last time it was that high at this stage of the season?
Or any stage of the season!  Very Happy 

Actually we finished last season with +15. Surprised me.
moyes was better then we give him credit for

In 2008 we'd a goal difference of +15 after 17 games. We'd hammered 7 past Sunderland which helped.

Martinez seems to have Pienaar back to his best as well. MOTD highlights show him making lots of smart runs, both short and long. 7 goals from fullbacks this season is incredible. Thats more then the Chelsea forward line.. Very Happy
