Neville v Hibbert | Superior Right-Back?

Neville v Hibbert | Superior Right-Back?

For a number of seasons, Tony Hibbert and Phil Neville have been jousting for Everton’s right-back jersey. More often that not, club captain Neville wins the duel, and finishes each campaign having played a greater amount of minutes in the role. However, this year David Moyes has seemingly opted to remodel his defence, starting Hibbert for the past nine straight Premier League games. This decision has surprised a significant proportion of Everton fans who clearly value Neville's input. So what is …
Newcastle v Everton | A Toffee Preview

Newcastle v Everton | A Toffee Preview

Everton travel to an in-form Newcastle on Saturday having suffered a testing early season stretch of games. Defeats to Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United in four out of the last five games have left the Toffees precariously placed in the league. This weekend, one would think Evertonians may be encouraged facing a supposed lesser foe in Newcastle, however the Toon Army have been inspired so far this campaign, enjoying their best start to a season for over a …
Tim Cahill | Wasted as a Striker?

Tim Cahill | Wasted as a Striker?

Over the past few seasons, Everton’s striking core has become feather light in terms of personnel. Yakubu seemed to lose interest at Everton and, along with Jermaine Beckford, never quite contributed enough to warrant continual selection. Both began the season at the club, but have recently departed. Louis Saha remains the Toffees' senior striker, but has spent more time injured or on the road to recovery than actually playing at peak fitness. That has left few alternative options for David Moyes. Apostolos …
Everton v Wigan | All on Delivery

Everton v Wigan | All on Delivery

Last season, Everton played out a dour goalless draw with Wigan at Goodison Park, continually thwarted by their visitor's resilient defence. The Toffees still dominated statistically, hitting 14 shots to six, sending in 36 crosses to 13 and missing four clear cut chances to two. Evidently, as well as their opponents defended, the Toffees clearly lacked an element of luck. Despite several players leaving in the summer transfer window, the likely line-up for tomorrow will potentially be similar to a …
Leighton Baines v Ashley Cole

Leighton Baines v Ashley Cole

Currently, the English national side seem to be undergoing a transitional phase before embarking on Euro 2012. Frank Lampard, despite playing against Wales,  appears to have moved to the periphery of  Fabio Capello's thinking, and many other established internationals, such as John Terry and Rio Ferdinand, are beginning to find their own selection far more scrutinised. With the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Andy Carroll all coming through, the 2010 World Cup may have finally marked …
Fellaini | Big Hair, Bigger Expectations

Fellaini | Big Hair, Bigger Expectations

Marouane Fellaini has a wonderful head of hair. Unfortunately for so skilled a player, the Belgian international has been known more for his over-sized afro than his play on the field.   In an international break that has seen Everton's already thin side further weakened with Joseph Yobo departing for Turkey on loan and injuries to both Leighton Baines and Victor Anichebe we could all use a laugh so we invite you to enjoy these images while reviewing Fellaini's Everton …
Everton | Midfield Dissected

Everton | Midfield Dissected

Whilst Everton’s overall squad portrait depicts a roster ominously stretched in several quarters, in central midfield, David Moyes is blessed with some truly optimum Premier League talent. For countless campaigns, Mikel Arteta, Tim Cahill and Leon Osman have been continually producing the goods at Goodison Park, whilst Marouane Fellaini, and Jack Rodwell seem destined to eventually reach the upper echelons of the game. With the exciting Ross Barkley set to emerge this season, centrally, Everton’s midfield looks destined to become …
Spot Success for Arteta | Everton

Spot Success for Arteta | Everton

Police are reporting a theft in the North-West, apparently 3 points were stolen in the Blackburn area. A Spaniard has been arrested. Everton snatched a late and fully undeserved win at Ewood Park today in a bizarre game that was ultimately decided by three spot-kicks. Junior Hoilett saw his penalty saved by the excellent Tim Howard in the Everton goal and then Mauro Formica sent his effort onto the post before Mikel Arteta stepped up in stoppage time to steal …
