Antolin Alcaraz: Impressing Everton boss Roberto Martinez

Everton manager Roberto Martinez declared himself pleased with the performance of new signing Antolin Alcaraz after he came on as a substitute in the 4-1 friendly win over Accrington.

The Paraguay international replaced Sylvain Distin in the second half of the match at the Store First Stadium after sitting out the defeat to Austria Vienna at the weekend.

But he got his chance to impress against Accrington and Martinez felt it was important for the defender, signed from former club Everton earlier in July, to get some time on the pitch.

"It's important he got that first game and got to know his team-mates," Martinez told evertontv.

"It feels like he has been with us for a long, long time and he plays with that maturity.

"That is down to the group of players that we have who have welcomed the new signings really well.

"It's pleasing to see Antolin settle in really quickly. That's always a nice sign of a dressing room."

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.
