THT’s weekly Everton.

Saturday’s victory over Aston Villa was a strange one given that for me it was probably our worst display of the season. Let me just quickly qualify that statement. So far this season we have managed to control the majority of the games we have played in but on Saturday it was only really after Romelu Lukaku struck his 5th Premier League goal of the season, that the Blues really took control of the game. Even in the games against Chelsea and Manchester City we had good portions of the game where we dictated the pace and control of the game but Saturday never really felt like that until the last 25 minutes.

Saturday saw Everton return to Premier League action against the Hull City Tigers (well not yet anyway) following the disappointment of a 3-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium before the International break. On paper this was always going to be a tricky game for Everton especially following the Internationals. It may have surprised a lot of people that Everton were only second to Bayern Munich in having the most players on International duty. It won’t have surprised Evertonians though as we know the quality that Roberto has at his fingertips.

This post is from our friends over at Touchline Talk Football News.

Following England’s 4-1 triumph over Montenegro in their World Cup qualifier on Friday, Frank Lampard has revealed he is driven to make sure the Three Lions make it to the World Cup finals.

The Chelsea ace has had a series of highs and lows as an England player, one of those lows being the national side’s failure to qualify for Euro 2008 under the management of Steve McLaren.

Lampard has been a central figure to the England football team for over a decade, making 101 appearances thus far and scoring 29 goals, only one behind one of England’s greatest strikers of all time, Alan Shearer.

Frustrating Defeat : THT’s weekly Everton

Frustrating ! That is how I would describe last weekend’s 3-1 defeat at Manchester City. Roberto Martinez’s men must have left the stadium with a sense of regret after almost handing the game to City on a plate after starting the game so well. The Blues went into the fixture boasting an excellent unbeaten start to the new campaign and an excellent record at the Etihad Stadium however, both were to be brushed aside by a wounded Manchester City side that had lost their previous two fixtures.
