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 …
Jermaine Man - Beckford

Jermaine Man - Beckford

If you speak to Evertonians about Jermaine Beckford you get some quite differing opinion; some say he’s a brilliant goalscorer who has made an amazing step up from League One to Premier League, others say he’s an arrogant, selfish player with little talent and a bad attitude. I am on the fence about Beckford, and I will try to reserve my judgement of him until this season, what I can do however, is look at the stats from last season …
Everton Scores In Midfield

Everton Scores In Midfield

Everton's seasons have come to rest on the edge of a blade.  With Tim Howard, Phil Jagielka and Co. securing the rearguard to the tune of just 190 goals allowed over the past 5 EPL seasons (that is just 38 goals allowed per season), Everton have the defense upon which to build a top four assault.  However, Everton has finished in the top 5 places in the table just twice in that time, have not finished top 4 once and …
Leighton Baines, I bet you think this post is about you

Leighton Baines, I bet you think this post is about you

For the last three seasons Evertonians have enjoyed keeping their secret weapon quiet. Our left back; the softly spoken, erudite, musical blogging, local lad has been steadily going about his business without anybody taking too much notice. Unfortunately in the 2010/2011 season the cat came so far out of the bag that the fire brigade had to be called to retrieve it from the tree. Leighton Baines is by far and away the best left back in the league. These …
Premier League Goal Scoring Patterns

Premier League Goal Scoring Patterns

Our statistical expert Ford Bohrmann analyses Premier League goal scoring patterns by looking at which areas of the goal teams score in. The article focuses on every Premier League side and then also covers their conversion percentages with the use of graphics. The original idea for this post came from a question from one of the readers of my blog. He was curious to know if there were any patterns to where clubs score in the plane of the goal. …
Everton | Who Replaces Arteta Best?

Everton | Who Replaces Arteta Best?

Since parting ways with Mikel Arteta, Goodison Park's chief creative threat for several years, Everton have struggled to find a player capable of replicating his high level of production. This season, the Spaniard's absence has clearly hampered elements of the Toffees' arsenal, with many attacking statistics on the decline. As is emphasised above, despite their recent upturn in form, the Toffees' creative nous has wavered. What has helped negate these attacking deficiencies and kept David Moyes' side competing  in games this season has …
