Legend is a word too often used to describe footballers these days, but for Tim Cahill no other word can come close to summing up what that man means to so many Evertonians, especially for those of us who aren’t old enough to remember the likes of Alan Ball, Brian Labone, Bob Latchord and most of the 80’s team. In the last 8 years, he has ran through brick walls for us, he gave Everton Football Club everything he had and much more, sometimes to his own detriment as he regularly played with injuries as he would never let the club or the fans down. He played like most of us who frequent Goodison Park would play if we ever could don that royal blue shirt….with passion, determination and a never say die attitude. Monday night’s news and the subsequent reaction from fans and media types alike has been nothing short of overwhelming and shows just what Timothy Joel Falinga Cahill means and will probably always mean to Everton fans.

Wayne Rooney, Seamus Coleman

Wayne Rooney’s move to Manchester United was his chance to be one of the world’s best, and at times in his career he has been simply unplayable. This past season has been arguably his best ever, however I have a concern regarding Wayne Rooney; a concern that if he continues his career at Old Trafford, he will not fulfil his true potential.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has revealed that he could make as many as five additions to the newly crowned champions and has admitted that he will be carrying out his summer transfer business with one eye on the future. Mancini accepts that continuous improvement is the target for City, and that may mean making some small adjustments to an incredibly talented playing staff that is already one of the strongest squads around.




Everton and Tottenham Hotspur have now finally agreed the last part of the the Steven Pienaar transfer deal which means the Blues loanee will return to Goodison Park on a permanent basis. The way the deal was structured has been a sticking point between the clubs as Everton tried to tie up a deal for the South African midfielder.



As Spain rewrite the history books and win their third major tournament in a row, their dominance on international football is confirmed. Since their Euro triumph in 1964 this was always a nation which was under achieving, always possessing good players, yet who were never able to perform with consistency or with the mental strength required to win a major tournament. Yet in 2008 something changed, success occurred and from that winning has become a habit. Could it be that one player was the catalyst for Spanish football’s current dominance?

Soccer - Pre Season Friendly - Werder Bremen v Everton - Weserstadion

By Paul Daly

Tuesday 16th March 2004. Prenton Park. Tranmere Rovers 1-2 Millwall. It was whilst watching this Sky Sports-televised FA Cup 6th Round Replay that I first set eyes on this small, raven-haired lad playing for the Lions. “He took his goal well then, that lad!” said both my arl fella and brother, having just witnessed him slot the opening goal of the game coolly past John Achterberg under considerable pressure.

Major League Soccer outfit the New York Red Bulls have confirmed that they have completed a deal for Tim Cahill, with the midfielder set to move to the MLS from Everton.
