Talking Everton

Posted on 3 October 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

It was an excellent result for Everton against Leeds last weekend, as it always is when you score four goals against any team.

I am delighted for David Moyes as I have followed him so closely from when he was at Cambridge United. He seems to have got a group that respect each other and work for each other.

Whatever changes he makes up front it doesn't really matter because the group understand what the work ethic of the team is.

When you do you miles over the years, as David Moyes has, you deserve to get a better job. When you have built a team like David has at Preston and Everton you certainly earn respect.

Everton have great power in the centre of midfield. Thomas Gravesen and Lee Carsley work very hard, get up and down, are stong and have good lungs. Another who could make an impression is James McFadden - signed from Motherwell - who, evidently has done very well at reserve level since he's been there and now first team level.

He is a talented player who a lot of people have watched and was possibly a victim of his versatility for a while up in Scotland. Good luck to him, he has signed for Everton and is doing well and I hope he continues to do well.

Of course, many people will be keeping an eye on Wayne Rooney, a player we came across first hand when he played against us in the Youth Cup the season before last. His progress has been quite amazing, even before then the football world knew that Everton had something very special in the their ranks.

I can tell you, one or two clubs did try and prize him away from Everton around that time - way before he made an impact in reserve football.

It's not easy for him, but he is very strong and cool player and, because he is able to cope playing against men, he has done very well.
