He scored his first goal in Everton colours on Saturday, so it’s only right that Apostolos Vellios is the main feature in the official matchday programme for Wednesday’s visit of West Bromwich Albion in the Carling Cup.
The matchday magazine has plenty on offer for the fixture, with exclusive insights from Vellios, David Moyes, Phil Neville, Alan Irvine, Conor McAleny, Gary Ablett, Jose Baxter, Seamus Coleman, Ronnie Goodlass and BBC Sport’s Damian Johnson.
Greek striker Vellios, praised by a certain Alan Shearer following his superb header against Wigan Athletic at the weekend, discusses life as a Blue, his love of the Liverpool weather and his struggles with the Scouse dialect.
There is all the action and reaction to the weekend’s 3-1 win over Wigan, while ex-Everton defender Ablett talks about his battle with cancer and how he’s backing ‘Blue September’.
The outspoken Goodlass pens his regular column, and it’s the turn of Baxter in the Gimme 5ive feature as the forward reveals his best tunes, most memorable games, top places and some random favourites.
Coleman talks Gaelic football and growing up in Ireland in Forget All About Footy, while Johnson gives his views on the Blues in Press Box.
Moyes and Neville write their latest programme notes, plus we catch up with Irvine to get the latest Academy news.
Meanwhile, promising youngster McAleny voices his hopes for the future, and Jill Scott reflects on a disappointing season for Everton Ladies.
There’s a look back at a previous programme when Everton met West Brom, and supporters of all ages can tackle the Spot the Difference puzzle as well as taking on the tricky Toffees quiz.
All this, plus plenty more, make the official programme an unmissable read.
The 84-page edition is priced £3 and will be available to purchase inside and outside the stadium, from the Everton One and Two megastore and sales points outside of Goodison and in Stanley Park car park.
