Gaining three points is the most important outcome of a derby game - a scoreline of 3-0 or better would be the icing on the cake for 2005 ! Everton know how much a derby match means, so we can throw out the form books on this one !
This team under Rafa is light years ahead of the Hollier era ! How many of the players bought by Houllier are actually still playing for the Reds - Hyypia was his only decent signing. But we still need a natural goalscoring forward - we need a Van Nistelroy, or an Henry up front - we rely on Stevie G too much coming through from midfield.
