It can only be assumed that the Everton team bus must have ran over a unicorn at some stage of pre-season. We just can't get a break this season at all, there have been some abject capitulations but the injury situation is just becoming ridiculous. Cahill, Fellaini and now Arteta all out :(
Add to this the refs absolute inability to spot a foul on our players in the box. What do you actually have to do to an Everton player to give away a penalty? Shoot them with a shotgun? Ritual sacrifice? Nuclear attack?
And whilst I am moaning how is it an advantage to Everton if we are surging forward, get fouled then scramble back possession ten yards back facing our own goal and under pressure?
