Thursday Everton Links and News

Every interview, news story, or link I could find were pretty much all talking about the biggest story surrounding Everton: The hottest Premier League start in Everton's history.

It's a great start and we have a great chance of sustaining it looking at the next couple of opponents, but I fear this will work against us. We tend to work better as an underdog (completely my opinion and I have no stats to back this up). I hope we don't go into a struggling Wigan and draw or even lose. This is prime time for the sloppy Everton game that we always seem to have every month.

On to the links:

-- This is kind of a ridiculous article. I don't think he can really beat out a lot of the midfielders on England for a place, even as a sub. Maybe if there are some injuries, he might have a shot.
