New, comment

Everton continue to leave points on the table as they let another victory slip away near the end of the match against Norwich. These missed points may come back to haunt the Toffees near the end of the campaign.

Everton’s Bryan Oviedo looking to move on from draw with Norwich City - Norwich Evening News
"Bryan Oviedo thanked the Goodison faithful for making him feel at home during his first Premier League start – and helping to set up Steven Naismith’s first half opener."

-- One quote in this article. So don't expect much from this link.

Everton rue Tim Howard error as Norwich City's John Ruddy shows way | Football | The Guardian
"Everton manager David Moyes says he wants more cover in goal, following a Tim Howard lapse that led to a draw with Norwich City."

-- Papers may be making a bigger deal from this quote than they should be, but it's true. We definitely need some cover at goal (what happened to Mucha's form?). Tim Howard is making way too many goofy mistakes that he shouldn't be.

Everton manager David Moyes says he needs new players to maintain his side's challenge for a top-four spot - Telegraph
"There was a moment in this match that illustrated Everton's predicament. Leighton Baines slalomed towards goal as he often does, leading the fight from left back."

BBC News - Norwich City reports 'racist' tweets after Everton game
"Norwich City chief executive David McNally says the club has reported "racist" tweets made after the Everton match on Saturday."

-- Not cool guys, not cool. Not to mention stupid.

Is an Evra plus £8 million for Baines deal good for Everton?
"A report has linked Everton's Leighton Baines with a move to Manchester United, again."

-- This is ridiculous. No way I want Evra. He is declining player and old. Makes no sense to get him. If anything, I would want to sell Baines and get someone cheap and younger. And let's not even talk about the ridiculous £11 million pound price (£8 million with Evra). Not even close to our evaluation. No way we give up the best left back in England for that price.
