Coleman was withdrawn from yesterday's friendly with Tranmere just half an hour after coming on as a substitute as a precautionary measure when he felt a twinge in his hamstring.
With the new season fast approaching, the manager isn't prepared to risk any of his players so the right back won't travel with the squad to the Far East.
He will have Bryan Oviedo and Arouna Kone for company at Finch Farm as those two players continue their recoveries from long-term injury but Ross Barkley will join the squad in Thailand.
The midfielder returned to training today after his post-World Cup break, tweeting earlier that it was great to be back at the club's training facility.

I can't help but notice there is a distinct dearth of good news, but there again, I should know better, having been in this situation so many times before !

Some good news Gibson made it through!

I know you're not meant to go on cameo's etc but I really like the look of the Yank right back DeAndre Yedlin from his performances out in Brazil. He's raw....but no more so than Coleman was when he came on board. Cant come with too high a sticker price and we do have the US goalie to help him settle in.
Might help sell a few more shirts in the States as well?.

Fresh injuries, recovery set-backs, important transfers falling through - these constitute bad news; what we have here is pretty standard preseason ups and downs.

I am sure Tim Howard has or does keep Everton informed of any potential USA player coming through. I would also guess that he of EFC haven't been that impressed with any that have come to their attention.

I can only reinforce your "Pro American" encouragement.
To my way of thinking the English top flight has had numerous Americans plying their trade and doing so without astronomical fees.
All the Americans who have joined Everton have been "model professionals", maybe not headline grabbers, but certainly the kind of people who turn up, train and play. Completely devoid of the prevalent "Princess Attitude" endemic in too many EPL players.
Everton have done pretty well out of our American signings, but surely we should have done far better by now ?
Both in terms of good quality players and probably as important, being seen as THE EPL club for Americans to follow ?
FFS ! Surely this was an upward spiral ?
With Tim Howards "They Shall Not Pass" World Cup performance making him a "National Hero", I really believe that Everton have a WONDERFUL window of opportunity to lure US fans, players and consequently investment.
However we were to do it, I'd approve.
Sadly, I don't see the usual suspects even bothering!

Isn't it Ramadan again?
If this is actually interfering with his football then it's completely unacceptable, I know religion is mighty important for some people but if this is the case, and we suspected as much this time last year, then it's got to be looked at.
I also just look back at the credibility of some Martinez words that he spoke two weeks ago.
"It will be mixed on signing players. We will probably have two more in before we play Leicester in Thailand and another two before we play them on August 16."
I wonder where he stands on that now?
16 Posted 23/07/2014 at 21:53:26
2 in before Leicester in Thailand.

I don't think Henen is going straight into the first though Jamie and likely won't play a great part early in the first half of the season, so I'm not sure if Martinez was referring to Lukaku being the other.
Certainly doesn't look as though either will go to Thailand now though.

The Lukaku deal I think we always knew would be a long drawn out affair but for the life of me why it took so long for Barry to come and the hold up with Brendan Galloway for example, then there's these ongoing Traore talks... It just all seems to drag on forever.
I just hope Roberto can get all of his targets because presently we don't have the squad depth or quality to fulfil his Champions League ambitions.

I would hazard a guess, (Jim #18) that the 3rd word in that sentence tells me that it is not a certainty!

As for Tim Howard. I don’t think he ever whispers in the ear of Martinez. Our boss might look and sound friendly and approachable but, on the quiet, I think he’s pretty scary.
31 Posted 23/07/2014 at 23:13:40
I hope he is not another AVDM.
32 Posted 23/07/2014 at 23:32:24
I don't have to completely agree, and often my response is to go and learn more (so thanks for that). BUT, you do neatly sum up much of my thinking. What follows has zero connection with you.
Moving along to "others", Roberto must be judged only by Roberto's efforts. This rather sad current transfer speculation "has he been drawn into OFM's dithering ways ?"
Please, "keep your powder dry".

For me, the moaning and groaning is all part of the TW entertainment. As James Marshall pointed out yesterday. "It's better than kickin' the cat."
34 Posted 24/07/2014 at 02:26:59
If it turns out he has a more serious problem than what has been suggested here then I will jump on the 'woe is me' bandwagon.

I only hope that when/if he finds her, he is not disappointed by her gender!
37 Posted 24/07/2014 at 16:27:36
Reminds me of the old headline: "MPs Ease Bill's Passage"!
I'm sure a few on here would like to work on our Bill's passage! The Speaker's Mace would do fine.

At least the temperature has cooled to 32C but the rain is making it humid.
