Food tastes better. Music sounds sweeter. Life improves noticeably on the day after an Everton win. Hey, it wasn’t pretty, and the team looked a tad shakier than expected, but it counts as a win just the same. Best of all, the defense maintained a cleansheet and no one in Blue was injured. Success!
