Everton FC comment - real trouble and strife for John Terry!

BUT what about the misses?[LNB]For once the question didn't involve the former England captain's nearest and dearest.[LNB]But it still added up to trouble and strife for John Terry.[LNB]The Chelsea defender's problems were Gallic in their conception once again - but this time it was Everton's frustrated French striker rather than a Parisian lingerie model who caused his pain.[LNB]Louis Saha had a point to prove after Saturday's anonymous display in the derby.[LNB]And boy did he ram it home.[LNB]He missed a penalty. He arrowed another couple of acceptable opportunities wide of the target, but the misses meant nothing because he gave a double-barrelled answer to his manager's pre-match call for greater firepower.[LNB]Both goals were classics of the centre-forward's art, the kind of strikes which would have had commentators and analysts drooling had his opposite number, Didier Drogba, scored them.[LNB]The first was a glorious header on the run from Landon Donovan's outswinging corner, the second was a blistering volley after chesting down Sylvain Distin's huge clearance.[LNB]And, of course, he got away from John Terry each time.[LNB]But while the nation's moral guardians will scoff at the Chelsea wide boy being led a merry dance for a change, Evertonians will simply cherish a thoroughly deserved win.[LNB]It ended Everton's longest winless run against any opposition in their history - 24 games since they last celebrated success over Chelsea - it was the last 'big-four' scalp David Moyes was waiting to claim, and it blew away the negativity and self doubt which had started to settle over Evertonians since the Anfield disappointment.[LNB]To be fair it was a mindset their manager refused to countenance.[LNB]David Moyes was adamant his team hadn't played badly on Saturday.
