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 Liverpool | Stat Analysis

Everton V Liverpool | Stat Analysis

I believe most neutrals who watched the Liverpool - Everton game would claim the result was for the most part decided once Rodwell was shown the red card. As a Liverpool fan, I believe it played a big part. The following are some of the select stats as they relate to the team. Defending   Liverpool's defence generally looked solid for much of the game. While they did have some mistakes, they did not look as shaky as they have …
Liverpool V Everton | D-Day is Derby Day

Liverpool V Everton | D-Day is Derby Day

The longest running top-flight derby resumes in the early kick-off on Saturday, with Liverpool hoping that the 216th fixture will see them take the three points on offer. Everton currently stand three points adrift of Liverpool with a game in hand, however it could be argued that they have had the slightly easier fixtures in the opening games of the season. Head to Head: The Story So Far The defensive stats show that Liverpool and Everton are fairly well matched.  …
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 …
Everton Vs Villa | Given makes a point

Everton Vs Villa | Given makes a point

Depending on your point of view, Aston Villa was either extremely lucky to escape this match with a draw, or have proven they're skilled enough to still earn points when they don't play their best.  The truth may lie somewhere inbetween, but one thing is not in question,Villa owe this point to Shay Given. In nearly every statistical category measured for the outfield players, Everton dominated the fixture.  Everton held a possession edge 54.2% to 45.8% which was achieved, in part, through …
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 …
Arteta makes Blackburn pay the penalty

Arteta makes Blackburn pay the penalty

Blackburn Rovers 0-1 Everton, 27 August 2011 Mikel Arteta’s last gasp goal secured all three points for Everton at Ewood Park this weekend. That this came from the spot after Blackburn Rovers had failed to convert two penalties of their own earlier in the afternoon merely added insult to injury. [caption id="attachment_3765" align="aligncenter" width="596" caption="David Hoilett missed the first of Blackburn’s two penalties at Ewood Park on Saturday"][/caption] Injury is a word Blackburn will be hoping doesn’t afflict them over …
