Everton have shown serious signs of gelling in recent weeks and it’s safe to say the overwhelming feeling among the fan-base is one of optimism.
The Blues have shown that they can attack at will and play exciting, attractive football – something that we have been yearning for for some time.
Of course, we have seen blips and off-days already this year and that will happen in a season of transition but, equally, I think overall we are looking good.
Recent results have certainly backed that up and it is clear that we are intent on attacking every game under Marco Silva.
Indeed, in recent comments since the win over Leicester, both he and Theo Walcott have talked up our play and the excitement around the style.
Let’s take a look at that, then, and the reaction from our fans to the messages:
