 February 2001

    Feb 28 - A leaked report by Liverpool Vision - the regeneration company in charge of selling the site - could spell bad news for Everton, if only because it reveals sinister opposition to the club's plans. 

    Feb 28 - After entering a not-guilty plea in court today, Danny Cadamarteri will stand trial at Liverpool Crown Court on September 3 charged with assault on Joeline Joel; the case is expected to last five days. 

    Feb 28 - Michael Ball came on as a second-half substitute in England's 3-0 win over Spain at Villa Park, making his first appearance for the full England team. He has been an U-21 regular in recent seasons.

    Feb 27 - Everton Reserves continued their great form in the FA Reserves League, beating Leeds United 1-0 with a penalty from Phil Jevons taking them back up to 3rd place with a number of games in hand. 

    Feb 26:  Francis Jeffers has aggravated the old ankle injury that kept him out for so long this season, and has been withdrawn from the England U-21 squad for Tuesday's match against Spain.

    Feb 24:  Everton held out well at Ipswich until Alex Nyarko got an unjust second yellow from guess who? Graham Poll.  In the last 10 mins, the 10 men capitulated, with two quick goals ending what had been a very promising display until then.

    Feb 23:  Michael Ball has ominously been called up for the rather large England squad (that also includes Gavin McCann!) to play Spain.

    Feb 22:  Abel Xavier's recall to the Portugal squad to play Andorra signals the end of his grossly unfair 9-month international ban.

    Feb 21:  An Everton side drawn from the reserves and youth ranks ran out winners in this Canal Street benefit match against Runcorn when 17-year-old Dave Carney scored the winner 13 minutes from time.

    Feb 21:  Everton's trial of young Danish defender Martin Albrechtsen from AB Copenhagen has been interrupted by his international call-up.

    Feb 20:  Duncan Ferguson's latest injury has confounded medical science a previously unheard-of hairline fracture of the shoulder blade???  

    Feb 20:  Despite the optimistic hype of last week, Everton are still mired in an injury crisis, made worse by three suspensions and the call-up of Joe-Max Moore.  Including Big Dunc's latest reverse, no less than TWELVE of the Everton Squad are likely to be unavailable against Ipswich.

    Feb 19:  Joe-Max Moore, who has been less than effective for Everton so far this season, has been called up for Team USA in their vital World Cup qualifier with Mexico on 28 February, and will miss the Ipswich game.

    Feb 18:  The Sunday People claims Gazza has lost another two stone in his bid to hone his match fitness for Everton.  

    Feb 17:  Everton Under-19s beat Bolton 3-0, but our reporter was watching the Under-17s draw 1-1 with Liverpool read Steve Milne's report.

    Feb 16:  Ex-Evertonian John Spencer is signing up for Major League Soccer in the USA.

    Feb 15:  Idan Tal played the second half of Israel's 1-0 home win over Moldova last night.

    Feb 14:  Alex Nyarko scored the second goal for Everton Reserves in their excellent 3-1 win at Middlesbrough tonight.  And Simonsen saved a penalty!

    Feb 13:  Leon Osman has been added to the Premiership Squad and will wear Shirt Number 34.

    Feb 13:  That cheeky Peter Taylor reportedly made an offer of 3M for Michael Ball and was sent packing with a flea in his ear.  Let's hope all such overtures continue to be summarily rebuffed!

    Feb 12:  Francis Jeffers and Kevin Campbell are the Premiership's most prolific strikeforce.  In the 29 games which the pair have started for Everton, they have scored 28 goals.

    Feb 11:  Richard Gough strained a "little muscle in his groin," according to Walter Smith who believes hell be okay for the Ipswich match."

    Feb 10:  Everton scored a much-needed win over Leicester City, with Jeffers and Campbell vying for position of season's top goal scorer, before the inevitable collapse almost gave it all away.

    Feb 9: Pablo Paz has turned down the opportunity of a trial at Everton, insisting that he is good enough for at least a loan deal.

    Feb 8:  Some players get red cards for elbowing... others get away with a smug apology.  

    Feb 7:  Duncan Ferguson scored as Everton drew with Leeds United at Goodison.  Kevin Campbell also scored for the blues, as Ian Harte and former blue Olivier Dacourt scored for the away side.

    Feb 6:  Tenerife's controversial Argentine defender Pablo Paz has been given the opportunity to train with the blues.

    Feb 5: Everton are to appoint journalist Ian Ross as Head of Corporate Affairs and Public Relations.

    Feb 5:  Everton Reserves' match at Sheffield Wednesday is postponed due to bad weather.

    Feb 4:  Tommy Myhre reportedly asked Walter Smith for a transfer after he was dropped from the squad against Manchester United.  Sure... if only someone wanted you, Tommy!

    Feb 3:  Andy Cole scored with a lucky deflection completely against the run of play, as Manchester United beat Everton 1-0 at Old Trafford.  Everton created the majority of the chances, and deserved at least a point after Tommy Myhre was dropped in favour of the recovered Paul Gerrard.
