Home dogs?

We are according to the bookies underdogs at home against Everton!

Everton impressed for 45 minutes against ManUre in a draw that, according to leading ManU-blogger Between_the_Lines, should have been closed before halftime.

Everton come with back to back wins, and that would probably sound good to the average “Betting Joe” but these wins came against Fulham and Bolton, two teams we thoroughly outplayed. The other teams they have won against are Stoke and West Brom and in addition they have drawn against Newcastle and Hull.
Is that an impressive CV? No, thought not.

We suffer from convertitis, that is we have been unable to convert our possession into goals, but even though this illness was still obvious against M-boro I think we showed signs of recuperating with possession much closer to the enemy goal and created more clear cut chances than in the previous 4 games.

Parker is back, Sears and Bellamy will show why they should be trusted and one of their most important players, midfielder Fellaini, is serving a one match ban.
I will treat myself to a bet, 2.60 (8/5) or above is too good to pass.
(Hopefully Prince H will write a more serious pre-game analysis...)
