Season Preview: Everton

David Moyes’ boys will look to build on a season that despite serious injury issues saw them finish 8th. Their Spanish midfield maestro, Mikel Arteta, is fully recovered from  a knee injury that kept him away from first team action for much of the last campaign. The Toffees possess a powerful combination of strength and guile and majestic hair throughout the spine of their team. Have you seen Marouane Fellaini? Incredible stuff, really.

On a briefly serious note, the emergence of young players like Jack Rodwell in a team that is already extremely strong and well organized might mean that Everton offer a serious challenge to Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester City for the fourth (or third.) Champion’s League place.

Moyes is an acknowledged yet still underrated manager. The strike force of Louis Saha and Yakubu leaves a lot to be desired, but the team is fully capable of scoring plenty of goals from midfield.

American Landon Donovan looks to return on a loan deal that would provide the team with a much-needed pacy and experienced forward, but Beckford, Joao Silva, or James Vaughan could develop into quality first-team players. Everton will compete for a strong European place, and, if they stay healthy, will push deep into both domestic cup competitions as well.

Now try saying Diniyar Rinatovich Bilyaletdinov. Three times. fast.
