Any Optimism Please ? by Stephen Leary

Follow @footyscene1

Monday September 1st, 11pm the window slammed shut and most of us Evertonians were left feeling a little confused.

The news that David Hennan a player that had been with the club all summer, had joined Olympiakos it was a strange one and the news that Tom Cleverley a player Martinez rates highly wasn’t to join as a deal couldn’t be agreed. Since then we have learnt Hennan has joined on a last minute loan deal, I’m sure explanations on why this is the case will come in the coming days.

Those loveable reds from across the park by Dave Parky

Follow @footyscene1

You come to realise over a certain amount of time, that yes there really is a difference between ourselves and those loveable reds from across the park. Its strange when you consider that we are all human beings, all come from the same city, and we all have basically the same up bringing. I’m best friends with a red, we have been friends since we were kids, and during our friendship we have always had good banter and I would like to think intelligent conversations about both clubs. We would often disagree, but with him I forget about scoring points an try and be as honest as I can about Liverpool and my own club Everton, and for his part he does the same.

The World Cup : Opening Thoughts

Follow @footyscene1
Shades of Korea 2002 last and Argentina 78. In other words, some dodgy decisions and questionable performances last night. (Michael) Stipe Pletikosa in the Croatia goal had crisp packets for hands and without trying to sound racist in anyway, that referee looked like he had his eyes closed at certain times. On this evidence, Brazil will not win the World Cup with their performances alone, although we know that most countries need the game like a ‘green’ horse needs its first run.

World Cup Group H Preview by Paul Dargan

Gary Lineker stole the line which I penned well before his column on the BBC site or the channel’s preview of the 20th finals on World Cup Eve. How on Earth can Belgium can be dark horses for the tournament, if they are EVERYONE’S choice of darkhorses?

World Cup Group G Preview by Paul Dargan

Germany are my favourites for this tournament. Quite simply because they have quality in every area. A world-class goalkeeper, solid in defence, creative in midfield and and clinical in attack. They are the most successful European nation (though they’ve won one less World Cup than Italy) and nobody ever likes facing the Germans – except for in Euro 2000!

World Cup Group E Preview by Paul Dargan

This is going to be the first time that almost half of Switzerland’s World Cup squad is under the age of 25 and they will be looking to emulate their successful under-17 players, who triumphed in the under-age version in 2009. Three players from that 23 will be in coach Ottmar Hitzfeld’s selection – Gladbach’s Granit Xhaka, Real Sociedad striker, Haris Seferovic and Wolfsburg defender Ricardo Rodriguez.

World Cup : Group D Preview by Paul Dargan

There is a lot more confidence about England this time around with coach Roy Hodgson deciding to give youth a chance. Everton’s Ross Barkley, Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling, Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Luke Shaw of Southampton are names that immediately sprung out from the 23 when the squad as officially confirmed.
