ToffeeLinks: Thursday Everton Links and News
It's a pretty slow news day. That Leeds loss really put a damper on Champions League talks and people calling us to win the league. But great teams separate themselves from the mediocre when they come back from these losses stronger. We have had a tendency to be extremely streaky and we can't fall into that trap this time. We must go play Southampton full of confidence and attack head on like we have so far this season.

Southall doesn't understand why Howard was rested on Tuesday against Leeds. He contends that goalkeepers don't need rest and need to get in their groove instead. I understand what he is saying, but I think this is more of the club giving Mucha some playing time to keep him happy (I know he's still not really happy) rather than the "resting" of Howard.
