Everton V Blades

Not quite as prolific as the scoreline might suggest, but never the less we deserved every one of those points.

 

I know a few people have comments on how it takes us a while to start attacking opponents, for instance the Chelsea game in which it was a game of two halves. But we are doing everything right in our tentative approach towards premier league football, after all this is the best league in the world, with some of the best players. 

 

It all starts at the back and we are getting it right for the majority. We have to steady the ship and if this means weathering the early storm the so be it, we have to be extremely disciplined and kick on from there.

 

Everton tested us on a few occasions today but we weathered the storm and held our own, once again showing that "dogged togetherness" that you expect from Chris Wilder's blades. We battled for one and other and threw bodies on the line, you can't ask for much more really. 

 

We played some good football at times, with some really neat passing moves taking us into the final third of the pitch. As the second half went on, we weather a bit of Everton possession and played a little bit more directly. 

 

However this paid of eventually. 

 

A tidy ball down the flank was tucked away at the angle by The Moose himself. A tidy little finished through Pickford's legs left me in split minds, obviously over the moon about the confirmation of three points, however; at the same time, I don't want to see England's number one getting beat through his legs like that. 

 

All in all, I would like to think that it was a case of a gameplan being executed perfectly.

 

Full value for all three points. The are the games that we have to be looking at smash and grab something from, with the big boys around the corner waiting for give us a mullering. A huge 3 points towards the season aim of survival!!!" Get in!! UTB!!

 

I honestly don't think we'll get mullered by anybody

Youve got to hand it to Wilder,hes gone their with a plan and its worked a treat,they bottled everton up and they had no answers,it wasnt subtle,but it was effective and thats all the matters in a results based game,you snuff out the threat and make them do what you want them to do

What has Wilder done to Mousset he looks tremoundos I along with lots more fans including Bournemouth fans thought Wilder was mad paying 10mill for him some on the south coast saying they will drive him up to South Yorkshire them selves to make sure he signs.Well it looks like Wilder has done it again picking up a diamond that no one wanted .Just how he finds them is a mystery he must sprinkle magic dust on them .He has only scored 4 goals in 63 matches for the south coast side but has 2 (i am giving him the Chelsea goal)for the blades playing about 45 mins and looks so dangerous and so quick.I will never question Wilders decisions again but I would like someone to explain how he managers it when other managers would not touch some of his signings with a barge pole.

He is another one that Wilder has been tracking for a long while. I'm in no doubt that we wouldn't have minded a sniff at Maupay, but apparently we have been scouting Mousset for a couple of seasons.

 

Wilder wanted to bring Mousset in last season, but for whatever reason, they couldn't agree terms on a loan-to-buy (with promotion the objective).

 

I'm not shocked in the slightest to see the lad coming good, he fits the remit perfectly. He's raw with obvious talent and he has a point to prove, he is just in need of a manager who is willing to invest in him and who will give him a platform to shine.

 

If anything, he has more to prove than McBurnie.

Great result.  Egan was immense and that assist from Lundstram for the final goal was first class.  

 

Mousset is a real nightmare for defenders, a big lad who runs like an Olympic sprinter!
