Pride Back After Everton Draw 4-4 At Man Utd

I said we were embarrassed after last weeks semi final, embarrassed perhaps wasn’t the right word to use but our pride definitely took a kicking. However after today’s 4-4 draw against Manchester United, Everton certainly gave the fans a little of that pride back.

A shock early goal by Jelavic gave us some early optimism but it was always going to be a daunting task to hold onto that for the rest of the game.

Then our old friend Rooney popped up with an equaliser taking the teams into the break level.

Goals from Nani and Danny Welbeck for Manchester United left it looking as though they had their tails up and it seemed more a question of how many goals United would now score.

Fellaini pulled one back for the Blues but this was quickly curtailed by Rooney who put Manchester United 4-2 in front.

After a period of United pressure they now seemed like they had taken their foot off the gas Everton had a surprise counter and Jelavic pulled another goal back for Everton making it 4-3 to United with seven minutes to go.

Then in the last five minutes some more good play by Everton who twisted and turned the ball into the area for Pienaar to slot home leaving United’s title hopes in the balance.

The referee then added a mysterious five minutes on at the end which was the bit were United were meant to score a late winner and leave Everton wondering where all that added time was from! But there was to be no fairytale ending and Everton came away with the share of the points and kept us with a chance of finishing above our loveable neighbours.

A special mention must be given to James McFadden who came on and worked his socks off, he showed some good movement at times and has given Moyesie something to think about.
