Our first full day in Seattle and there was no easing-in period for the players.
After an impromptu guided bus tour from the local driver and his on-board PA system, they were thrust straight back into some pretty exhausting looking running during the early training session.
This was particularly bad news for Jack Rodwell, Steven Pienaar, Joseph Yobo and Yakubu, who were...
Well it seemed like a case of deja vu at Spotland on Saturday afternoon.
As the whistle blew at 3pm, it looked like we were in for another tough battle with League Two opponents, with the match a little bit physical in parts for a pre-season friendly.
But, thankfully, the trip proved enjoyable as an injury-free, five-goal encounter unfolded -...
Despite an exhausting day of travelling, spirits are high in the Everton camp.

So the first week of another pre-season is upon us.
The flags, banners, horns and heartache of Wembley seem a lifetime ago and the enduring wait for a football fix is finally over.
