Before we get to Fulham, some other matters to discuss. Like how blessed we are to have Romelu Lukaku at the club.
More praise of Lukaku's thinking and preparation. Apparently Lukaku watches close to 600 hours worth of video during the season so he can become one of the best strikers in the world.
And one more for good measure:
Onto the cup tie. Everton head to Craven Cottage looking for their first taste of silverware in almost 20 years.
It is nice to hear Martinez affirm that the club will take the Capital One Cup seriously, but I expect to see a slightly less than 'A' team.
Everton begin their quest for extracurricular silverware today against Fulham.
