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.

Moyes to present United hit-list


Manchester United boss David Moyes has been promised funds for a huge foray into the summer transfer market. The Red Devils boss is to present the board with a £100 million ($164 million) hit-list. Juventus midfield duo Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba are believed to be on the list, along with Southampton defender Luke Shaw and Everton’s Seamus Coleman.

Arsenal chase Everton’s Coleman


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.

Manchester United chase David Luiz

Manchester United are yet to make a meaningful breakthrough in the transfer market so far this season. Bids for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, Everton duo Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini have failed to materialize into transfers. The latest player to be linked with United is Chelsea defender David Luiz. The Brazilian doesn’t seem to fit into Jose Mourinho’s liking for defenders that stick to their position. If the Red Devils bid the reported £30 million, they would surely get their man.

Fellaini makes good on promise, dyes afro silver


Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini is a man of his word. The playmaker pledged to dye his hair silver if Everton supporters had donated at least £25,000 to the club’s official charity by May 16th. Well, they did.

While he is pretty excited about it, it doesn’t seem like he will keep his new do for Everton manager David Moyes’s final match with the club:

"I think it looks great, but it is only for one day, because I don’t think the manager will like it quite as much as me."

"It is for a great cause and i would like to thank the fans for raising £25,000 so far for the Everton community."
