Authenticity was a key word used by Sean Dyche in his after match interview following a hard fought 1-1 draw with Spurs at Goodison Park last night.

It seems to me watching last night's game and recent performances, since Dyche's arrival, that Everton have come to a new sense of belief in themselves, as a squad and as a team.

Dyche has instilled a work ethic and sense of purpose, that was sadly missing under Frank Lampard, whose ideal of a set way of playing out from the back and the "enjoy the ball" mantra that was a bit beyond the skillset of this present group of players, .

What Dyche has done in a short space of time is that he has given a shape and a set tasks to each of the players based on their strengths.

Dyche has also enriched the game of key players by promoting their self belief. He has coached the players not set them ideals.

Dyche demands that the hard yards are put in, and respectfully asks the fan base to get behind the players if the players give their all, this typified by the Gwladys Street singing Michael Keane's name last night, a player who many fans wanted totally out of the club a few weeks ago.

Keane a player who looked totally devoid of confidence and whose spirit looked broken under previous managers.

Sean Dyche's managerial talents have totally transformed many members of this squad.

There is another person Sean Dyche has instilled belief in... Me.

I have watched every game this season and my support for Everton as a club will never wane, as the club is bigger than the individuals who are currently making such a mess of running this great club.

I watched the decline in recent months on the pitch since the Leicester game and realised Frank Lampard was taking us backwards.

They were dour weeks, Everton were hard to watch, hard to get enthused about, hard to believe in, until the sacking of Lampard and the introduction of Dyche.

Methodically, on the pitch, Sean Dyche has brought an authenticity back into Everton's style of play. It is true, Dyche is building a team spirit we supporters can really get behind. 

We lack a true number 9 at the moment with DCL's situation, but Demarai Gray has stepped up and has worked so hard, adapted his playing style and shown sides of his game that have been brought out under the tutelage of the present manager.

The back four of Coleman, Keane, Tarkowski and Godfrey all putting in performances and are in tune with what the manager requires of them.

Alex Iwobi and Dwight McNeil both working so hard, running so much, to make the manager's game plans work.

Gueye, Onana, Doucoure all developed in recent games and shown marked improvement in the current unbeaten run. One only has to compare the stats. 

I have come to the belief that we can currently give any opponents a match in these last games of the season.

Yes, I expect Everton to go to Old Trafford at the weekend and hopefully keep our unbeaten run going. 

We can stay out of the bottom three when all the games are done and dusted for this season, under Dyche I believe we can do it.

My only fear now is that the mismanagement at board and ownership level may cost us our Premier League status.

Onward and hopefully upwards COYB UTT
