The website team at will provide regular blogs about the events here on the site and the stories from behind the scenes you may not be aware of.

View articles would like to say a big thank you to every supporter who has participated in one of our webchats this week.

Leighton Baines, Louis Saha and Carlo Nash have all joined us in the chatroom to take much-needed breathers from what has been a gruelling training camp in Scotland.

The beauty of webchats? You, the fans, get away with asking all the questions we never could.

As writers for the website and interviewers for evertonTV, we have something of an obligation to maintain professionalism at all times.

After all, if a 6ft plus Belgian lad arrives on the doorstep of Finch Farm for a Club record £15million fee, you can hardly lead in with: "So what's with the barnet?"

You lot can.

For that reason it is through our webchats we so often discover the most entertaining, interesting and intriguing aspects of a player's personality - as useless in the real world as the information might be.

This week, for example, we found out that Louis Saha is a big fan of parmesan. Yep, the cheese.

Carlo Nash, on the other hand, eats his crackers with something a little more sophisticated. 'Stinking Bishop' may not sound too grand but the keeper ensures us it's soft and strong and goes down a treat with chutney. He recommends fig.

We also heard how Louis thought he would become an animator of children's cartoons. "I only played football for fun," he said, "then one day I realised I was quite good." Modest. He probably made the right choice.

Courtesy of Leighton Baines we heard how "Phil Neville comes in to training in anything he gets given for free," and how Saha's haircut is a tribute to not-too-shy basketballer Dennis Rodman. Saha insists he just "fancied a change."

And, before we lose sight of the fact this is supposed to be about football, we got to hear both Nash and Baines wax lyrical about their dream signing, Lionel Messi.

Now I wonder what his favourite cheese is?

Look out for more webchats when we follow the lads to American and Canada later this month.
