Leighton Baines grabs a cold one after Everton knocks off Fulham

After handily taking down relegation-threatened Fulham on Saturday, Everton sit just four points shy of Arsenal for the coveted fourth Champions League spot.

With a game in a hand and a tie against the Gunners next week, things are looking up for Everton. So, what better way to celebrate than grabbing a nice cold one? That’s what Leighton Baines opted to do:image

Yep, apparently Baines made a pit stop outside of Craven Cottage to snag a bit of ice cream.

It just goes to show that you’re never too old to chase down the ice cream man.

Everton fan gets “You’ll Never Walk Alone” tattoo for charity

There are few local derbies as passionate as the one on Merseyside between Liverpool and Everton. The two clubs’ stadiums are just one short mile apart, and the players have a distinct distaste for one another. No fixture between the two has yielded more red cards since the inception of the Premier League than this one.

But as this story reminds us, the intense passion of the Merseyside derby can be used to do really, really amazing things.

This is 4-year-old George Johnson. He suffers from a very rare motility condition, which means that he can’t eat, drink or swallow, and is currently fed directly through his heart. His family needs to bring him to the USA to seek further treatment, but couldn’t afford the trip. So they’ve been fundraising.

But they needed some help. That’s where diehard Everton fan Matty Bowman stepped in. He pledged to have “You’ll Never Walk Alone” tattooed on his back to help raise awareness about George’s story.

It worked.

Team George has now surpassed their goal of £15,000, and the number grows every minute. For Bowman, it’s a small price to pay in order to see that George gets the treatment he needs.

"If I didn’t want to do it, I wouldn’t have done, but I did it for a reason — it was for George, I’ve got a boy the same age," Bowman told the Liverpool Echo.

Bowman may be a lifelong Everton fan, but we’re pretty sure he’s got his own diehard fans in George and his family, too.

Liverpool look to Blues defender

image

Chelsea have a wealth of defenders at Stamford Bridge and Jose Mourinho may look to offload a few in the transfer window. Mourinho has frozen Ashley Cole out of the starting 11, preferring Cesar Azpilicueta on the left-hand side of defense. 

Today’s newspapers report that the Blues’ third-choice Ryan Bertrand could be on his way out the door. The likely destination is Merseyside, where both Liverpool and Everton are admirers of the 24-year-old.

Arsenal chase Everton’s Coleman

image

Arsenal are searching for a replacement right-back if Bacary Sagna refuses to renew his contract at the club. Arsene Wenger is looking to Everton’s young defender Seamus Coleman as the possible solution.

Coleman is a Republic of Ireland international and has been in fantastic form for the Toffees so far this campaign. He is part of Everton’s mean defense that has only conceded 13 goals so far this season.

If Arsenal are serious about challenging for the league this season it may take more reinforcements than a single defender. A position worth looking at would be up front - cover for Olivier Giroud could be crucial in case he picks up an injury later in the season.
