Cutting the Mustard: Coleman heads us in front against Fulham
Another new regular feature that will switch between RBM and TheOffside ‘Toffeelinks’ is a sweep of stories, videos and rumours relating to Everton gathered in one handy place.
If you ever find anything that you would like included in Toffee links feel free to send me a message by clicking here. And while you're online do head over to Everton:The Offside as well for more Everton related goodness.
First off, Fulham match reports and the excellent Gregg O’Keefe of the Liverpool Echo gives his view on a game that had similarities with David Moyes’ first game for Everton against Fulham nine years ago. Click to read story
Also check out the Executioner’s Bong match report, every week he gives a detailed, tactical insight into our matches, well worth a read. Click to read story
Back with the Echo (though given their current ban from attending Everton press conferences they must have got these quotes from somewhere else) and Moyes believes Phil Jagielka is a future England captain in the making. The defender was called up to the squad along with Leighton Baines to cap a perfect week after he signed a new long-term deal with the Toffees on Friday. While it would be great to see Jags wear the armband with the current incumbent being John 'no-morals' Terry it appears the candidacy requirements are pretty low. Click to read story
*Lazy journalism alert* The Daily Mail appear to have re-hashed an old interview with Joleon Lescott and presented it as new (they did the same with a article about Moyes, originally published just before the FA Cup semi-final two years ago) It is still an interesting read that gives us an insight into David Moyes management style, though it is very much a one-sided view to try and paint Lescott in a positive light. I still chuckle though at the "Man City was nothing to do with the money" quote. Yeah, right. Click to read story
The latest Jack Rodwell rumour (get used to it, it’s gonna be a looong summer) is linking him with a move to Chelsea. Take of that what you will. Click to read story
More quotes taken out of context, this time from Phil Neville, who wants Everton to aim for sixth place, which would mean finishing above Liverpool, Sunderland and Bolton. The press have inevitably used the Liverpool angle, prompting much ‘bitter blues’ jibes from Liverpool fans who can’t be bothered to read. Click to read story
David Weir – yes he is still going – lifted the League Cup for Rangers on Sunday and David Moyes has spoken of his desire to bring him into the club in a coaching capacity. A great coup if he can pull it off. Click to read story
