Howard: The Everton squad is as deep as it has ever been
Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has praised the strength in depth that this current Everton squad has and says that he believes that this is the strongest that the squad has ever been.
The American goalkeeper believes that Merseyside derbies are special and they mean everything to the people of the City of Liverpool and he feels it also means everything to the players to win.
“We have to continue to concentrate on our performance,” he said. “Mentally, we’re resilient, we’re tough and the squad is as deep as it’s ever been.
“More so than ever, we’re ready to perform and get the win. But it’s every week we feel that way, and it’s not something that will change for us.”
“Derbies have always been blood and thunder and always exciting games,” he told evertontv.
“I don’t think that’s changed, certainly not in my time here. They mean everything to the city, both Red and Blue, and it means everything to the players.
“It’s electric, like nothing else. Some of my family haven’t been to one yet, but I always tell them about it and I hope to get them to one in the next few years before I retire.
“I try to tell them that because it’s something they won’t experience in their life outside those four walls.”
