  • Is Everton for Real?

    Where you sit in the Premier League table depends on who you’ve been playing, especially this season. With so much parity, form seems to follow schedule. Southampton, for example, were in third place after 11 games, only three points off the lead. Now, they’re in eighth after facing Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City in three […]
