Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours?

“We’re building, that’s for sure. From where we came from... for the size of this club, with the history of it, the fanbase and the passion - we can’t be settling for what happened last year. I came into that and the lads fought brilliantly. The spirit of the whole club came together.
“Now it’s about what comes next. We want to get back up in the table. It’s something that’s so easy to say and difficult to do. We’ve shown a little bit now with back-to-back wins and we have absolutely have to stay on it.” - Manager Frank Lampard talks about his expectations for this Everton squad. [EFC]
