    Our Gueye, Magaye Gueye

    So, already bagged a couple of goals and some high praise from Saha....will he play a game this season? And where was he playing against Bury, I've only seen the goals? Looked to be in the middle somewhere? Will he give us some width out on the left, or the right? Do we have pretty high...

    The undervalued player that is Leon Osman

    What a lil gem we have here. Does he typify Everton under the David Moyes era? He grafts, there are highs, and lows to his game, nothing too flashy but gets a job done etc. He never appear's to be in anyone's first XI team sheet in reality when other players are fit, but always appears to come...

    If you could sign one player?

    Ok, we probably won't bring in anyone, we're Everton, why buy players when you don't need too :huh: We'll just loan some more out, it's the new black. Anyway, just for fun n stuff If we had a lil bit of cash, and you've ticked the "rule out unrealistic targets" box on your Champ Man...

    Is it Bilyaletdinov's time to shine?

    This little Russian has had a stop start career at Everton so far. All this youtube video's seemed to show he was a tricky player, full of running at defenders and scoring goals for fun.....we've seen little of the running (with speed anyway) but plenty of wonder strikes and important goals...

    Michael Owen

    Yes, this must have been mentioned before, but its on that extremely reliable site (cough) caught offside now that we're after him. Regardless of wages etc, i'd usually be screaming for us to get him. But injury after injury has surely now taken its toll. Would it be worth the gamble? Is he...

    The Lone Ranger

    It's been said (A lot) that Beckford is rubbish up front on his own.....ok, I'll be honest, I don't know what's best at the moment, or what formation is best either, everyone has their own opinion, and I always use hindsight to judge what is best Anyway, with Cahill up there too, he's not...

Stumbled across this site trying to help Dutch Toffee on something for Kiddy Harriers Probably been done before, but quite interesting looking back at all the kits throughout the years for various teams.

    The Everton Squad of 25.....well, 21

    Pretty obvious, but confirmation of the squad from the OS.... All of Everton's registered players are eligible for the Blues this season after the Club submitted its official squad list on Wednesday. The youthful nature of David Moyes' squad means meeting new Premier League rules was not...
