Before we start with the links, a couple of changes. ToffeeLinks will now be a daily feature (due to popular demand, I guess). We will try to publish it around lunch time in England (Breakfast time in the US/Evening in Asia).

The comments section will also be an open thread from now on. This means that you can talk about about anything We would prefer the links or football in general, but it will be open for anything (just remember the community guidelines).

Also, if anyone finds any articles that seem interesting, you are always welcome to post it in the links, but you can create a FanPost or FanShot about it as well!

And on to the links!

Everton Links:

Everton manager David Moyes dreaming of Europe following destruction of Swansea City at Liberty Stadium - Telegraph

You can't achieve something if it's not a goal. Or maybe he just doesn't want to admit it as a goal to the public.

More links after the jump.

Victor Follows The Jelavic Road - evertonfc.com
Jelavic seems to be more than scoring just goals for Everton. Anichebe is learning Jelavic's movement in order to become a more effective and efficient goalscorer. I really didn't expect this from Anichebe. Impressive.

Magic Numbers: Leeds - evertonfc.com
