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 …
Cahill One of EPL's Best

Cahill One of EPL's Best

A number of defenders have recently been touted for moves to Arsenal or another Champions League club by the close of this summers transfer window.  As Arsene Wenger and his cohort look around the Premier League to draft in replacements their attention has not, at least in the tabloids, turned their collective eyes towards the Reebok.  I realize even mentioning that Cahill may not be long for a Wanderers jersey is a painful thought for many but not one which anyone, least …
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 …
Can Everton Earn Their Spurs | Preview

Can Everton Earn Their Spurs | Preview

Everton travel to Tottenham on Wednesday night as both sides play their game in hand. Everton will be looking to capitalise on their good recent record at White Hart Lane. The Toffees have lost once in five visits to the Lane; winning three and drawing the other one. Spurs' only triumph in this sequence was a 2-1 win in February 2010. Everton have the edge in the last 10 league meetings between the two. Tottenham have emerged victorious in just …
