Big Dunc, Barry and McGeady in Thursday's round-up.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Thursday’s Liverpool Echo reports on yesterday’s announcement that Duncan Ferguson is to join the Everton first-team coaching staff.
The article features quotes from the Scot, taken from an interview last year, in which he describes his affection for the football club.
Also in the Echo, Gareth Barry says Roberto Martinez’s laid-back approach is helping to ease any worries over his long-term future. The midfielder is out of contract at parent club Manchester City at the end of the season.
The same paper also mentions that Everton have received a reduced ticket allocation for the FA Cup quarter-final tie at Arsenal.
There is minimal coverage in today’s national papers. Ferguson’s promotion to Martinez’s coaching setup is briefly covered in the Daily Express, while another tabloid contains quotes from Aiden McGeady who has been looking ahead to Saturday’s game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
