Unsy: It Is Up To Us

David Unsworth led the battle cry ahead of the last match of last season, and he's doing it again now ahead of Sunday's match with Bologna.

The match has taken on a bit of extra significance following Everton's three disappointing reversals in their last three games and Unsy believes that the players have still got something to prove to the manager.

"We need a big win and a big performance on Sunday," he said.

"Everyone at the club is now fighting for their shirts and that gives an extra edge as the pre-season draws to a close.

"It is a big game for individuals and it is now up to us to show the manager that we are worthy of a shirt for the Arsenal game.

"The defeats have been disappointing but the spirit is fine within the camp and everyone is looking forward to the season.

"We all know what is required and that is that we have to better last year. We know what level of performance is required."

This time last year of course, it was Unsy himself who was preparing for his Testimonial and, if selected, he told Evertonfc.com that he'd consider it a privilege to turn out for one of the club's true legends.

"It is an honour to play in any testimonial and to play in Colin Harvey's - a true Everton legend - would be an absolute honour and I hope that Evertonians turn out in their droves on Sunday."
