EvertonUSA, the supporters club network across the Pond, has declared Saturday 16th August as Tim Howard Appreciation Day in recognition of his headline-grabbing exploits in the World Cup and his role as both an ambassador for the game and Everton FC in his native America.
The network's over 50 affiliated groups and over 30,000 members will celebrate the day in pubs and homes throughout the nation while raising money for the club's official charity. Fans of the US national team will come together and celebrate one of the best American athletes in history as he represents the nation on one of the biggest sporting stages in the world — the English Premier League.
Howard set the record for most US Men's National Team goalkeeper appearances with 104, made an incredible 16 saves against Belgium at this year's World Cup, and #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave has become one of the most popular memes on Twitter.
To be a part of this celebration, fans can go to EvertonUSA on Facebook for more information. Joining EvertonUSA gives you discounts on Everton merchandise, access to game day tickets, travel packages, and a closer connection with Tim Howard and Everton.

DonÂt wish to sound PhilÂish, but letÂs hope we get the right result against Leicester, when so many eyes will be upon us, how embarrassing would that be?

ps: I love the EvertonUSA badge.

Also I must say the badge is totally funky. It may be worth trying to market something in the US with this badge on as the potential market is massive and we all know how much the Yanks love there stars an stripes. Food for thought.

You could be on to something there mate, best of luck and really, really hope we get off with the right result on Saturday, the right result, obviously being a win, a draw or even worse is unthinkable.

Easy way for our blues in the know across the pond to spread the word to prospective soccer fans that we are historically more successful than Chelsea or Man City.

I shudder once more at the thought of the wrath of Mike (Gaynes) and many others on either side of the Atlantic but sure well done TH, you showed in the Belgium game in particular that you can have a cracking game. However, we desperately need a new goalie - CardiffÂs Marshall would make my day as they say over here - not as cover for TH as more than a few say but to step into his shoes.
IÂll get under me dustbin lid but we will not take the next giant step if Howard, Osman, Nuts, and Jag the howler and hoofer are thought of as shoe-in starters.
Of these four, to be fair, Howie was the more valuable last season but so many mistakes, such poor control of his box and defence (we are crying out for a commanding voice and presence at the back), flapping, punch or catch or catch and punch, distri-fecking-bution whether with foot or arm.
We sorely need Marshall or his ilk but despite what I have said I also believe that keeper is way way down on BobbyÂs list of priorities.
ÂLegend;! No way! Unless you mean US legend that is and thatÂs not for me to say.

By the way, Anthony @ 10, very harsh, mate!! Tim has his faults like all players but IÂd quiet happily stick with him than trade for 90% of other teams goalkeepers. I do agree that Tim doesnÂt come for certain things that other keepers might come for but having Jags an Distin together for so long with Tim they all know each otherÂs games off by heart.
Can you honestly tell me a player at us who doesnÂt have a fault? I doubt it very much. Tim is a very reliable goalkeeper and has been a great and loyal servant to us, he also is a very punctual keeper and never seems to be missing!
Keep up the good work, Tim, most of us do appreciate your efforts.

Also to have TouretteÂs and play top level sport must surely take some doing, and itÂs something he will always have my respect for. This must affect his decision making at times, surely? But there was nothing wrong with his decision to let Aguero beat him at the near post haha! And he proved to me that day what a great Evertonian that he has become!

Loved the City stuff; TimÂs best ever mistake or decision!

After the likes of Paul Gerrard, Richard Wright, Robles, Mucha we are very very lucky to have Tim Howard, one of our best signings of recent years... and I still think, had Howard played in some of the cup games, we may have had a bit more success advancing in competitions.
