Everton 3, Swansea 1, Pie 2

An excellent afternoon watching the Toffees overcome the Swans in the FA Cup on a sunny but cold day at Goodison. The match was preceded by a minutes silence for the late Sir Tom Finney. A laboured performance overall by Everton which started incredibly well, with new loan signing Lancia Delta (Lacina Traore), scoring with a deft back heeled flick in under 4 mins.

Swansea equalised fairly soon after that and it became difficult for Everton from then on. Silly errors and giving the ball away cheaply followed until the second half introduction of Osman and Naismith whose presence led to two more goals to win in a less then convincing style.

To celebrate, a belated lunch was taken with Steak Pukka Pie from a local chippy and excellent it was, easily outperforming Swansea by a long way. Bring on the Gooners.
