I must say that my plan of not paying any attention to Everton’s recent matches seems to be doing wonders for their form: since getting access to the evil one’s sports channels at home, I’ve watched 3 live games, all of which have ended in defeat for my team. I have completely ignored the last two games, which they went on to win, first comfortably against Crystal Palace, and then unexpectedly, against United. Not having seen last night’s game, though, I am rather curious about one particular incident, at least insofar as it was reported by The Independent:

“The first shot in anger came from Rooney, a 30-yarder that Nigel Martyn parried after eight minutes.”

Well that must have been some shot then… do they add on extra time for that?
