Good game with 2 footballing sides Everton having most of the chances but fluffing their lines somewhat.
Good freekick by eardley got the seasiders off to a quick start after good early blackpool pressure.
The more inventive everton midfield started to show after the goal with Arteta (the magician) at the centre of the proceedings ably supported by wide runs by coleman and pienaar after a few close escapes for Blackpool great cross by Yakubu and the best player in the prem in the air tim cahill powered home the equaliser and for the rest of the half blackpool dependant on a tight defensive four and a goalkeeper who doesnt look out of place in the prem
Half time Blackpool 1 Everton 1
2nd half turned into a real keystone cops of a game and before the half time tea had been drunk Blackpool took the lead the game started as it did in the 1st half with the seasiders taking an early lead Vaughan scoring a bit of a tramps pants of a goal a very scruffy goal scored by Vaughan but this was to be a different blackpool in the 2nd half.
Once again everton came more into the game and immediately equalised through the energetic Coleman who had been blowing hot all through the game it was all his making as he recieved the ball30 yards out and went on one of his direct runsending with him smashing it under the defenceless Gilkes the teams where once again level for the rest of the game it was end to end a highlight was seeing pienaar put nthrough but gilkes palming wide his effort also beckford being stopped by a tight blackpool defence
Turning point of a very entertaining game was Harewoods disallowed effort first i thought he had been blown up for offside but he had pushed jagielka earlier in the move
all in all a very entertaining game which both sides looked to win but although a draw was well earned for both sides
there will be better sides than everton going away from bloomfield road with nothing
Final Score Blackpool 2 Everton 2
