After a stuttering opening two games it was a relief to see Everton finally win and score some goals in the process.

Speaking of goals and I feel it was important Jermaine Beckford got off the mark. I get the impression people are queuing up to dismiss him as out of his depth at this level if the scathing write ups after the Wolves game are anything to go by. Even the BBC singled his performance out for criticism.

Six reasons for Everton to be cheerful (and counting!)

July 08, 2010 - Sydney, NSW, AUSTRALIA - epa02242129 Everton FC players take part in a training session in Sydney, Australia, on 09 July 2010. English Premier League team Everton will play A-League team Sydney FC in an exhibition matchon 10 July, followed by the Melbourne Heart and the Brisbane Roar next week as part of their pre-season preperations.
It may only be pre-season but Everton's form so far has given all Toffees fans reasons to be optimistic.

The Blues have often been slow starters in the recent past, including last season's injury ravaged shocker. But David Moyes seems determined to shake off that tag this year.
