As the 11pm Transfer Deadline fast approaches this particular day represents an unusual feeling for Evertonians, and that is the usual feelings of desperation are not present. In fact it is quite the opposite as Everton focus on bringing players in later today as we expect some new faces at Finch Farm. Cast your minds back 12 months ago when after as bad a summer as I can personally remember, we bring in Royston Drenthe and Denis Stracqualursi only to lose Mikel Arteta at the eleventh hour. Evertonians were devastated not so much that Arteta had left but the way in which it happened very similar to when Wayne Rooney left Everton, in that we had no time to spend the money on re-enforcements.

Sunderland are believed to be the latest club to have made an enquiry over the availability of Fulham forward Clint Dempsey. Martin O’Neill is an admirer if the United States international and is attempting to follow up the signings of Adam Johnson and Steven Fletcher by completing a late deal for Dempsey.

To my personal astonishment for your interest in the first place , so to those in Helmand Province , Afghanistan generally , or anyone in fact serving their Country when they could be at home with their families .

Stay safe , Peoples . THAT , is a Goddamned ORDER !!!

It also buys the Gunners some more time reach an agreement with the England forward.




This summer’s transfer saga over Leighton Baines is almost over, with Everton assistant boss, Steve Round’s, recent claims that the full-back is set to stay at the club, after weeks of speculation he was on his way out.



“We spend nearly two years waiting for a signing that actually costs money – and we’re signing him. What little money we have is getting wasted on him. We’re replacing Mikel Arteta with him. Cheers Moyes, you tit.”

Yes, ladies and gentlemen – these were my exact words upon hearing that Everton were set to finally spend some of the Mikel Arteta money on ‘him’ – and by ‘him’, I meant the man I referred to simply as the following:


England can learn lessons from Spain’s methods to success. As the England squad for the friendly was announced recently, the significance of Jack Rodwell’s move to Manchester City points to the future direction that England should seek to follow. If England and Hodgson wish to be successful in the coming years, then it will be Manchester from where the national team is comprised.

Well, in truth it had been a pretty lacklustre summer until the Big Fella decided to put on a footballing clinic in front of that lot from Manchester the other night. Up until that point, probably the most discussed footballing matter on Merseyside this summer had been Liverpool’s hunt for a new manager, which eventually culminated with Brendon Rogers, jumping in to bed with the enemy faster than you can say Nick Clegg. It will in truth be interesting to see how those loveable reds take to Rogers, particularly as his predecessor was idolised there. I also always thought ‘King Kenny’s Kop’ had a nice ring to it, maybe not so great on the initials though after the whole Suarez thing……
