Friday Toffeelinks: Slow News is Good News

It appears we will see this man tomorrow; hopefully he can avoiding doing this. - Clive Brunskill

We look forward to tomorrow's clash at Goodison against West Brom, deal more with the never ending transfer rumors, and more in today's Toffeelinks.

I have to say, the transfer window is getting old pretty quick. Of course, this happens twice a year, every year; we as Everton supporters sit around nervously, wondering which of our stars some top four team will try to poach next. Admittedly, with all the talk surrounding this transfer window, particularly Baines and Fellaini, it has gone remarkably well so far. Offers for both players appear to have been few and far between, so we ought to be pleased with how slow the news has been.  Still though, can the window just close tomorrow? Please? No? Well, that's life.

Johnny can hit the Heits, says Martinez - Liverpool Echo

If there isn't a move for Toby Alderweireld in our future, we do still need Johnny Heitinga, especially if Antolin Alcaraz is still going to be dealing with fitness problems. Whether Roberto Martinez actually has any faith in Heitinga, or whether this is just a manager saying good things about a guy he will need over the weekend to try to build his confidence is unclear.

Manchester United's 'new way' of doing transfer business is wrong, says Everton's Roberto Martinez - The Telegraph

Martinez has done a very good job of handling the transfer madness this year, and the implication that it is not necessary to sell players is a wonderful, positive sign.

Fellaini sets his sights on United move as Everton fight to keep star man - Daily Mail

Because what would the late days of August be without at least one completely baseless article from the England papers about how one of our players is headed out the door? Certainly Fellaini wouldn't fight the move, but one would think if he was seriously pressuring the squad, it would have become clear by now.
