Today was another great day out at Goodison Park. I will be completely honest I was so nervous about today's against Manchester United.

There is the whole Wayne Rooney aspect to playing them as he grew up supporting Everton, was in their youth team and played in their first team. Made comments such as 'Once a Blue always a Blue' only to move to Manchester United with a lot of cash in his pocket. Then he kissed the Man United badge at a match against Everton some years later... Let's just say he is not cheered when we play him. But today he was kept well and truly quiet.

Manchester United are one of the clubs which are considered 'The Big 4' and I think the last time Everton beat them in a regular season match was something like 2004 or 2005.

Well... until today!

United went up 0-1 after 15 minutes. I have to admit at that point I was terrified. I did not want us to lose this match and am made up that Diniyar Bilyaletdinov scored a screamer only a few minutes later. We were back in it!

We went into half time 1-1 and it wasn't until minute 79 when Dan Gosling who had just come on as a substitute scored and then at minute 90 Jack Rodwell scored the third.

Goodison Park was going crazy!

I am sure you all realize how happy we were. You don't have to be into football to get at least an idea of how exciting a match like this can be.

I have no idea how I lived without Football in my life for so long...
