It’s match day, Blues, and I feel good. Everton are in decent form for the first time in months. Now they enter the thick of the hectic holiday period. A few weeks ago, such a run of games felt like possible disaster for the club. Now, with Sam Allardyce’s steady hand, this feels like an opportunity to vault up the Premier League table and position the squad for a fruitful January transfer window. What a time to be a Blue!
