Everton FC : Little Update

As we approach the end of June the doom and gloom merchants are rearing their heads again where Everton Football Club are concerned. So as an antidote to those guys I thought we would give a little update on what we have been told regarding Everton’s player recruitment plans.

The way I see it things have been quiet generally on the transfer front so far. Yes some clubs have made moves in the transfer market already, but in the main it has been a very normal and quiet June for most clubs. Once July 1st is here and players report back to training, moves for players increase and things begin to bubble over. The fact that Everton have been quiet so far has been magnified by our neighbours doing their business early. In my opinion this is the correct thing to do but this takes money which as we know Everton don’t have bags of.

Well as I rise on day 3 of Sound City in Liverpool, feeling fatigued and with very sore feet I begin planning how I will spend the closing day of this awesome festival and conference in my home city.

Well I knew I’d swerved this for a while but hadn’t appreciated that my last update was early Feb – I thought I’d dust off my spreadsheet and see how it was looking.

Firstly one or two formalities out of the way –

Anyone who doesn’t respect the achievements and relentless winning of Alex Ferguson is basically an idiot.

Arsene Wenger has today ruled out a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer by insisting he is staying at Arsenal. Despite receiving some criticism again this season because the Gunners have failed to win a trophy, Wenger insists he still loves his job amid speculation that his relationship with the fans has deteriorated and it did look as though he may leave this summer.

Everton : Is 352 the perfect formation ?

352 for Everton?

Last Saturday’s game saw something we haven’t seen too often during David Moyes Everton career , a change of formation. Ever since playing his tried and trusted 451 at Old Trafford in August 2004, the Blues boss has had that as his preferred formation. Admittedly, it was too accommodate Tim Cahill more often than not but since the Australian’s departure from Goodison, Moyes has chosen to play Marouanne Fellaini in that role.

Football Icon 9 : Dino Zoff

Dino Zoff was born February 28, 1942 in an Italian village called Mariano del Friuli. Dino was the son of a Farmer in Northern Italy’s agricultural hotbed. Having a keen interest in football since childhood Dino wanted to play for a professional club and had trials hwoever, clubs like Italian giants like Juventus and Internazionale felt that Zoff was too small for them to take a chance on despite only being aged 14 at the time. Five years on and Zoff’s displays for his village team, Marianese, began to interest the scouts at nearby Udinese. In the 5 years that had passed since young Dino Zoff’s trials with Juve and Inter he had grown an incredible 33 inches which gave him the chance to fulfill his dream of being a professional goalkeeper as his height was no longer an issue. The scouts had been suitably impressed and soon Zoff was left his job as a motor mechanic to sign professional forms.
