First win in the EPL
What a way to win the game. Scoring via a penalty in the last minute of injury time is dramatic to say the very least. But Baines showed great composure to score. After missing last week's penalty, today's penalty (& win) was of paramount importance to Everton.
But again we slogged without a playmaker in the middle of the park. We need Arteta back asap. In the meantime, there are rumours of Everton taking Van De Vart from Real Madrid. Him joining us is the stuff of dreams. Rafeal Van De Vart is a top midfielder. He can unlock defences and he will be a great addition IF he joins.
Apparently we are looking at Heitinga too. He is a solid defender who can play in the centre and on the right. We do need a better right back as Hibbert is out of depth. I like Hibbert, but the the cause of the team is always larger than any one player. Perhaps Hibbert can be a squad player, if we get a better right back.
In the meantime, we should savour this 1st win in EPL.
Now that the match is over, Evertonians all over the world will hold our breath for the next 48 hours to see who we can sign up, with the transfer window closing at the end of 31st August.
