Away Hoodoo Continues!

Everton 2 - 0 West Ham

Having dominated with 59% of the play up at Everton this morning, forgive me if I'm a little sour that we failed yet again to get a point away from home. Our lack of cutting edge in front of goal is a little concerning and quite frankly I can not wait for Deano's anticipated return in January. There is little wrong with our endeavour and approach play which is apparent by the fact that had no fewer than 12 corners in the first half. 14 shots on goal in the match yet none hit the back of the net - a cause for concern that Pards cannot ignore. I also think some of blame lies at his feet. Tevez and Zamora both have qualities in abundance but neither are prolific in front of goal of late. I'd like to see Harewood given a run alongside Tevez and given the opportunity to gather some scoring form. He scored the winner at Arsenal a few weeks ago yet has barely had a sniff of action since.

One place above the relegation zone leaves us relying on the continuation of our recent home form in order to stay out of trouble - if that deteriorates then we could well be in it.
