I think most of the premiership is pleased to see the little man back. Justice is served

hey i think stoke were unlucky not to get a point out of this one today.Is playing to your strengths ugly,i don't think so.That second half was entertaining and if that was a top 7 side stoke should cope in this league no probs.
stoke have played 5 games so far this season,and scored 10 goals i don't think they need to keep relying on his throw it justs helps.
Sounds that we've still got plenty to do with that defense!
We lost the cohesion we had in defense last season with Carsley leaving. Moyesies idea was to get Carsleys replacement in early in close season to shore things up. That obviously didnt happen.When Castillo and Fellaini are up to speed the goals will stop being leaked and, one thing cant be denied is that we've got scoring potential in the squad like we haven't had since Lineker was on the teamsheet!.

Fellaini & Castillo's passing leaves a lot to be desired. They put themselves around a bit and I'm sure they'll do brilliantly when they've been in the team a while...but I haven't seen that many stray and overhit passes since Gravesen last played. Glad Everton got the win. I have to agree Selwaylamps826, Cahill is class
I love Timmy Cahill. Love him. His run for that goal was so perfectly timed its unreal. He knows where Mikky is going to out that ball every time and acts on it. The performance as a whole was ok but taken into consideration its away from home with two new signings who Moyes has barely seen i think we have a bright future this season. Not what i was thinking a few weeks back. Pinnear, Cahill, Arteta, Fellaini, Osman, Castillo is a quality midfield, maybe lacking width but arteta and ossie may provide that kiler ball and of course AVM waiting in the "wings" .Fair play to Stoke also who put in a mighty effort and if they stay relatively injury free they may just stay upCOYB
Some of the worst referee work I've ever seen. In the end, Everton won, so there was justice in that Everton was robbed of an obvious penalty. But the referee committee should look long and hard at this game as an example of what not to do.
I think the result was fair on the basis of the match play. Stoke did what they're going to do to a lot of teams, especially at home which is the way Big Sam made Bolton play. Attack at set plays and use Delap's throw as a deadly weapon, caused Everton all sorts of problems. It's not the prettiest way to play but if they stay up, I cant see a single Stoke fan complaining. The non penalty decision was a complete joke. I think Everton's new signings struggled to come to terms with the pace of the premiership. I wasn't particularly impressed but it was a tough encounter and environment to come into, no time to settle in down and move the ball around. On another note, I dont know who was marking Anichebe when he scored but how he was left so free for so long was shocking.

What gets me is that one of the main arguments against video technology is that it breaks up the flow of the game... In this incident, the Ref spoke to his Assistant for about a minute, which also broke up the flow of the game, but then made a terrible, wrong, decision.
