Hey there, Blues! Sorry about the lack of Bites on Monday. It was Christmas, and I was tied with family commitments. You know how it goes. But I hope all of the Evertonians had an awesome holiday. Now we jump right into the crazy end of December, start of January run of matches. Everton could do well to pick up points and really solidify their shot at European football in 2018/19. Come on, you Blues!
