Jesus is born.

Aw, it's difficult not to smile when you read this story :

BBC NEWS | World | Americas | Peru Christmas baby named Jesus: "A Peruvian woman called Virgen Maria, who is married to a carpenter, has named her son Jesus Emanuel after giving birth on Christmas Day.

Twenty-year-old Virgen Maria Huarcaya Palomino had not been due to give birth on Thursday, but went into labour early and underwent a Caesarean operation."

and it was difficult not to smile yesterday as Everton ran out easy 1-0 winners (Are we they only team who are head and shoulders above other teams and still end up coming home with the slenderest of margins all the time) against boro who despite looking fairly good earlier in the season are now looking dodgy.

Tim netted again for us but the story of the game is Dan Gosling making an assured debut. It was would have been nice for him to cap it with a goal (he had two very easy chances) but who's complaining. The blues are 6th now and all the other results went for us.

Boro 0-1 Everton

I still think we are vulnerable and are miles behind Villa and Arsenal but at least we are now well placed to give it a go at being the best of the rest.

Villa just seem to have the luck this season without being particularly impressive, can't see us getting anywhere near them now. Arsenal will get stronger I think. Everton's main worry is what's coming up behind them. There are a lot of teams with a lot more in their locker...Whilst the blues are certainly no worse than them we need to keep up our form and get some strikers in to take the pressure off. Cahill, Fellaini, Pienaar, Osman, Neville and Arteta have all been immense in recent weeks leading the line and Jags, Yobo, Bains, Hibbert, Lescott and Howard have been equally brilliant at the back but we do need a recognised goalscorer sharpish.
