Lacina Traore: Targets a trip to Wembley in May with Everton

The 6ft 8in striker, who used to watch the May showpiece at Wembley in his native Ivory Coast, bagged a fourth-minute opener at Goodison Park thanks to an instinctive backheel to help the Toffees on their way to a 3-1 win.

And Traore is now aiming to help the Merseysiders win the competition for the first time in 19 years as Roberto Martinez's side were drawn away to Arsenal in the quarter-finals.

"It's nice to be playing in this famous cup competition," Traore, who joined the Goodison Park club on-loan from Monaco in January told the Daily Mirror.

"I watched the games as a kid and it would be a dream to be able to get to Wembley and play my part.

"Arsenal are a big team, but we will just get on with it. I've come to a good team with good players. I think we can go all the way, hopefully.

"We'll be fighting hard to get to the final and fighting hard in the league, because we want to get what we deserve from this season."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
