Ian Snodin: Left is looking right for Everton FC

Steven Pienaar and Leighton Baines 300 ALTHOUGH it was another two points dropped I'm not too downhearted by Everton's draw in the North East. It was certainly an entertaining game and the satellite TV subscribers got their money worth. And there were positives for David Moyes; largely the creativity of two players I go on about week in, week out. Leighton Baines and Steven Pienaar are a joy to behold on the left, their link-up is telepathic and they duly created a lovely first goal for the Blues to take the lead at the Stadium of Light. It was an example of what they're best at. Overlapping and then getting the ball to Bainsey to find Timmy Cahill with that wonderful left foot of his. Baines played so well that it makes a mockery of his exclusion from Fabio Capello's last few England squads. But where you give him all the credit possible, because he has it all in my book, you have to hold your hands up and say he should have done better to stop Bolo Zenden getting the cross in for their equaliser. First and foremost, despite his attacking attributes, the lad is a defender and he will know he should have been a bit tighter before Zenden went outside of him. That was a very rare error though, and I can't fathom why he is being overlooked for England.
