The Everton U-21 team continue their good form after a horrific start to their season, with a 2-0 win over the Norwich U-21. It's good to see that these guys are actually playing better.

"Regardless of how Ashley Cole is punished for his Twitter discrepancies, Everton's Baines is in top form, younger and brings a skill at dead ball situations that could prove invaluable."
-- It's pretty ridiculous that Baines is still not the top choice left back. If everyone is honest, he is in much better form than anyone else at the position. And it's not even close.
