I left Goodison Park last night in pretty much the same downbeat mood that i'd felt almost 12 months to the day after that 1-1 draw with Metalist Kharkiv. It seemed then that our European adventure would be all too short lived. I was thankfully proved wrong. I hope i'm able to say that again in a fortnight's time, however...
I think everybody looks at the European campaign and the one game that sticks out last season was Fiorentina.
The atmosphere that night was second to none. Everybody talks about the Bayern Munich game in the 1980s that I played in, and I think the Fiorentina game rivalled that.
A packed stadium is important for the players. It helps them without...
I’ve had a busy 6 weeks! Back early off holiday and straight into transfer window, EGM, the public inquiry and the ever-present driving on of our business. Fortunately, a priority over the past three years has been to improve our off-field team and I think we’ve been successful. The team has steered us through a demanding few weeks.

It is one of the most annoying aspects of our football calendar that we just get the season underway and three games in have to break for International football! And only 4 more weekends until we have to break again!!!

The transfer window closed last night and when you look at Everton's signings on paper, you have to say it's not bad going.
We've brought in a goalkeeper, a right back, two midfield players and a striker. The manager said he wanted to strengthen the squad and now he has done that.
There's no doubting Louis Saha is a quality player, he...
Well, what a week!!! Points on the board and new players too!
I was always certain we'd achieve the latter prior to transfer deadline day but after witnessing our opening day performance I wasn't quite so sure about the former. Credit where credit's due though, last weekend's win at West Brom was a hard fought, determined performance that at least...
Okay, Okay, so "Team GB" did manage to haul themselves up the medal table. That though has been the least of my concerns over the last 7 days.
I have to admit to being somewhat worried. My unfounded pre-season optimism is diminishing far too quickly.
Last weeks opening day defeat was probably expected, we most certainly did not deserve to win, and...
