Martinez promises Everton improvement

 
1st August 2015

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has promised an improvement in his Everton side after his side finished a disappointing 11th in the 2014/15 Barclays Premier League table.

The Merseyside club endured a difficult season last season, often occupying a place just above the relegation zone. It wasn't until a run of 5 wins in 6 games over the months of March and April that Roberto Martinez's side managed to open up a substantial gap from the relegation zone.  The blue half of Merseyside will no doubt look back on results at Goodison Park, such as the 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace and the 2-0 loss to Sunderland, to find where improvements can be made. Improvements that manager Roberto Martinez has promised to make.
 
Speaking to BBC Sport earlier today Martinez said: "I will be brutally honest with you, last season was not good enough from our point of view.  To miss out on European qualification was bad enough but to not finish in the top half is an absolute disgrace for a club as big as this.  Everton are not a bottom half team and this season we will be looking to put that right and finish in the top half where we belong.  With all due respect to the likes of Crystal Palace and Swansea, we should not be finishing below them in the table, we are a lot better than that."
 
"The fans did not deserve the level of performance they received from us last season, especially at Goodison Park and I have to apologise for that. Only winning 7 out of 19 home games in the Premier League is not going to get you into the top half of the table and this is what we will need to address for the coming season. We need to make Goodison Park into a fortress, a place where teams fear visiting.  Our fans are the best fans in the Premier League by far and the support they give us week in week out is nothing short of phenomenal.  It's time we repaid them for that support."

Great update, though I'd change the title to something more advertising but I'll be reading.

Thanks. Any suggestions on a title? It's not something I excel at unfortunately

Garbutt Signs New Deal


2nd August 2015 by Andy Lewis

http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/n549/JohnWarrington/garbutt_zpsaou3p7ty.png

http://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/ce/f4/0,,10278~5764302,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/cf/f4/0,,10278~5764303,00.gif]http://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/d1/f4/0,,10278~5764305,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/cd/f4/0,,10278~5764301,00.gif

Luke Garbutt has committed his long-term future to Everton by signing a new contract at Goodison Park.

The 22-year-old left-back has agreed a new five-year deal, pledging himself to the Club until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Garbutt, a product of the Everton Academy, made his Premier League debut for the Club as a 20-year-old at Southampton in the 2013/14 season, replacing Leighton Baines. He continued his career progression during the 2014/15 season, making 10 more first-team appearances including four in the Premier League, and a sense of genuine belonging and real ambition underpinned his decision to stay at Goodison.

"It's an honour to commit my long-term future to Everton. I’ve been made to feel very welcome at the Club since I signed my scholarship six years ago. Over the years, I have grown to have an affinity with the Club and I feel a sense of belonging here. Under the manager, the future looks bright and positive and I want to be a part of that. It is a great Club to be a part of and the staff and supporters have been great with me from day one."

"Last season was great for me in continuing my development, my personal highlight being the Europa League adventure as I gained a lot of experience in those games playing against top quality opposition. Everything we went through last season and the experience we gained as a group will only make us stronger as a team ahead of the new season. And with all the young players we’ve got such as Rom, Ross and Stonesy - all of them key players, too, the future of the Club couldn't be more promising."

Nice to get the Garbutt contract wrapped up early, although I feel like Baines will be allowed to leave because of it.

I can tell you that there is no way I'll be allowing Baines to leave!! Although he is out injured for a while :(

Jags Delight At Garbutt Stay


3rd August 2015 by Andy Lewis

http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/n549/JohnWarrington/jagshappy_zps8a7t67eh.png

http://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/ce/f4/0,,10278~5764302,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/cf/f4/0,,10278~5764303,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/d1/f4/0,,10278~5764305,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/cd/f4/0,,10278~5764301,00.gif

Phil Jagielka says he was delighted to see Luke Garbutt commit his long-term future to Everton this summer after the youngster signed a new five year deal.

And Jagielka believes the 22-year-old’s decision is one that will be justified in the years to come.

“I’m delighted he’s signed a deal,” the Blues skipper told evertontv. “It’s been a little bit messy for him, not particularly his fault and it’s just sometimes the way contract negotiations go. I know he loves being here. With the way it got drawn out, I’m sure there were other offers and promises from other teams to give him first-team football. I’ve seen a lot of people leave Everton, thinking they’re potentially going on to bigger and better things, and come unstuck so it’s nice that Luke has stayed with us and sees his future here.

“He’s always put the effort in in training and things like that. He’s a great lad and he has so much potential. The only down side for Luke is, over the last couple of years, not only has he had Leighton Baines to challenge but he’s had Bryan Oviedo to compete with against as well, so it’s been difficult for him to get an extended amount of game time, but I think he is definitely progressing as a left-back. When he has come in, particularly in the European games, he has done a fantastic job."

“Obviously, with losing Bainesy and Bryan towards the end of last season, Luke and Brendan Galloway were competing for that position at left-back and I’m sure there will be more time for the manager to give them in future. I’m not sure if there is a possibility for Luke to go out on loan and getting himself a longer period of games, but I do see his future at Everton.”

Everton preparing Austin bid

 
4th August 2015

Queens Park Rangers manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink could lose Charlie Austin before the new Championship season begins after reports linked Merseyside club Everton with the 26 year old whose three year deal at Loftus road runs out in 2016.

Austin, 26, was an integral member of the QPR side that was relegated from the Barclays Premier League in 2014/15, the striker making 35 league appearances last season. During the season, Austin was the London club's main source for goals, scoring a total of 18 en route to being the 4th highest scorer in the league. He was also the Barclays Premier League Player of the Month for December after netting 5 times in as many games.

Now it appears that manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will have a tough fight on his hands to keep a hold of the English striker after reports linked Merseyside club Everton with the signing of Austin. It's believed that the Merseyside club are willing to offer Queens Park Rangers around £8 million for his services, however it's rumoured that Austin won't be allowed to leave Loftus Road for anything less than £13 million. A source close to the player refused to comment on the speculation.

Austin would be a good signing mate, I looked at him as well &, in hindsight, probably should have pulled the trigger.

Good start man, following with interest!

Youngsters got out on loan


4th August 2015 by Andy Lewis

http://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/ce/f4/0,,10278~5764302,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/cf/f4/0,,10278~5764303,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/d1/f4/0,,10278~5764305,00.gifhttp://www.nufc.premiumtv.co.uk/javaImages/cd/f4/0,,10278~5764301,00.gif

Youngsters Conor McAleny and Tyias Browning will spend the season away from Goodison Park after being sent out on loan to Wolves and Burnley respectively.

Striker Conor McAleny has joined Wolves for the 2015/16 season, for what will be a second loan spell away from Goodison in as many seasons. Last season, McAleny spent 3 months on loan at Cardiff City where he scored 2 goals in 8 appearances.

“It's a great move for me,” the young striker told evertontv. “There's no way I'm going to be getting regular first team football here at Everton this season so it can only be beneficial for me to go out on loan. Wolves are a great club and are playing at a very good standard so it will be a good test for me. I'm really looking forward to heading there and doing my best for them and their fans. With a bit of luck they'll be joining Everton in the Premier League in May."

Young defender Tyias Browning, who made his senior debut in last season's Merseyside derby at Anfield, has spoken of his delight having secured a season long loan move to Championship side Burnley.

“I'm delighted to get a chance to go out on loan and experience regular first team football. When I came on against Liverpool in the derby, I got a taste for first team football and I really want to go to Burnley and show what I'm capable of. In the past, players like Ross Barkley and Seamus Coleman have gone out on loan and done well so I see them as an inspiration. Both of them are now first team regulars for Everton and that is my aim in the next few years.”
