Everton v Manchester City: Live GameThread (+ TransferThread)

Weird stuff going on in the Everton world right now. There are actually many rumors surrounding us. Everton have agreed to terms for Nikica Jelavic (even though the move isn't official). Louis Saha also seems to have possibly moved to the Spurs on an 18-month deal. There are also many other moves (Steven Pienaar, Adam Johnson, etc.) that seem to have at least some legs on them. The weird part of this whole day is that the rest of the EPL has been relatively quiet. This makes me feel like I'm living on the Htrae (Bizarro Earth, for those who do not know).

Before all these rumors were swirling around, I had little hope for us claiming three points today against Manchester City, but now, all of a sudden, I have all this irrational optimism. This should make Goodison Park much louder. The last year has been an odd mix of nervousness and halfhearted cheers.
