    nicked this from kipper,come back Landon !!!!!!!

    The 30-year-old USA international helped the Toffees regain top form in January, when he became the first of a string of new recruits who eventually propelled David Moyes’ side back up the Premier League table after a difficult start.

    It was the second time the LA Galaxy forward made the short-term move to Merseyside, and cemented his popularity with the Goodison Park faithful.

    Donovan is confident he will be back in some capacity in the future, and hopes he will pull on a blue shirt again.

    He said: “I would absolutely like to come back. There’s no question about that. And I know I will be back at some point. Now, whether I’m back as a player or just as a fan, who knows?

    “Right now, my focus is obviously is on this season and qualifying for the World Cup. It’s a big, really important year, and then we’ll see what happens.

    “I’ve always said the same thing: I’ll see how my body feels, I’ll see how I feel mentally, I’ll see where the Galaxy are at and what they’re OK or not OK with and then we’ll make a decision.

    “Obviously a big part of it too is whether David Moyes wants me. There is a lot of factors that go into it.”

    What’s it done for my confidence is, it’s reiterated that, to me, I can play not one game, not two games, not three games at that level, not a World Cup tournament at that level, but that I can consistently play at that level over eight, 10, 12 games,” he said.

    “And, being there I have so much respect now for guys that play 30, 35, 40 games in a season and are consistently good because it’s so demanding physically and mentally.

    “It’s really draining and it’s very demanding. Guys that are able to do that have all my respect.”

    Donovan, who is the USA national team’s all-time leading scorer, said he made a lasting emotional attachment with Merseyside during both loans.

    He said: “What do I miss about Merseyside? I miss the people. I miss the people a lot. I miss driving to Goodison Park.

    “I miss just the positive energy of the fans walking into the stadium and how much they care about that club and the team.

    “And I miss the players a lot. The players are really what made it easiest for me when I first went. I’ll be forever indebted because with a lot of teams’ guys there would be jealousy, they wouldn’t be welcoming, and they would do everything they can to not allow to get on the field in that couple of months. And, it was the opposite when I first got there (Everton) and I will always remember that.”

    Him and Saha have pissed off the Spurs fans by tweeting congratulations to Chelsea on winning the champions league,maybe that will bring his price down a bit.

    Gordon West, the first Everton goalkeeper I ever saw has just died (1943-2012), he was an Everton legend .
    The team I watched him with included Alan Ball, Joe Royle and Howard Kendall amongst others.
    That team won the 1st Division 1969-70, Gordon also won the league in 1962-63 and the FA Cup in the famous 1966 final 3-2 after being 0-2 down.
    He was in the 1970 World Cup in Mexico squad but turned down the opportunity for family reasons.



    Gordon West 69, R.I.P.

    He is in that distant memory of mine. 1970 was when "The Cat" was uncatlike?

    Sad to hear the news about Gordon West met him a few years ago at a Sportsmans dinner were he was the speaker had a nice line in Shankly stories . While other teams in that era had keepers like the Cat , Liverpool had the the Flying Pig Tommy Lawrence the only player I have ever met who looked fitter after he retired. it could only happen then.

    Oh Dear with the announcement that Harry Redknapp will be leaving Spurs David Moyes has been installed as the bookies favourite . Sad to say if he is offered the job much as I would prefer that he stayed with Everton I think this is his one chance to manage a club with a decent current squad (not first 11) and the prospect of being able to buy in new players to improve that squad.
    If he says no to this then I doubt any of the other top clubs will ask him and he will have lost his chance . Sadly if he does decide to go then I am not at all confident of what that will mean to Everton for next season . Current odds being given for them to be relegated if Moyes leave is 40-1 which I have to say is a rather tempting bet.

    Harry likes to spend money like water, Everton don't have any.

    I think if Moyes goes to spurs there will be a lot of transfer requests handed in at the Lane, as much as Moyes is respected in the game quite a few of those players will only have been talked into staying by Redknapp, they have no reason to stay at a club with no CL football and a manager they probably wont get on with.

    Could well be a massive turnaround for both clubs this, if he goes to Spurs.

    I thought Moyes was already pencilled in to take over from Fergie when he retires - can't see Daniel Levy hiring him if there is a chance he will walk at the end of the season when Man Utd come calling.

    Martinez maybe but I expect it will be a foreigner. Klinsmann perhaps?

    Klinsman would be an interesting one. He got the ball rolling with the current German team so if he can do the same with Spurs it would go down well, I'm sure.

    I will be disappointed if Moyes goes but I don't think he will as I believe Spurs don't have any money at present and I remember the prophetic statement Moyes made prior to the end of season (2010-'11) Everton v Chelsea game when he said he was sure of a job other managers aren't, after the game Ancelotti was sacked. So if he practices what he preaches he'll stay.

    With a new contract/pay rise on the horizon and the backing of Blue Bill, I fully expect Moyes to stay at Everton and lead us to a few more top 10 finishes in the years to come. Whether the majority of Everton fans will be happy with that is the real question...

    Yep no doubt, I still think if he went to Spurs he'd be sacked after 9 months. If he did have big money to spend and not being used to it he'd cock it up.
    Joe Royle (my boyhood hero btw.) was balancing the books at Oldham for 12 years, came to Everton and had some cash to throw about, didn't last long.
