Tuesdays tend to be slow. Not much news really, but you can read Mike's excellent tactical analysis of the Southampton match here.

I think it's time to be less negative so we can just enjoy the ride in our form at the moment. Given that, there's not really much for me to rant about or complain about our impending demise. So folks, let's relish the 2nd place position we are in right now! We don't know how long it will last, but we sure do deserve it.

And now the links:

"Winger caps first month at the Club with goal for Under-21s." -- If there's one thing that I hear over and over from new players, it's that the other players and the club itself always make the new guys feel right at home. We also hear a lot that players feel that they are part of a family here at Everton. This is what makes us different.
