Everton website says,

 

"Tim Howard joined Everton on a season-long loan deal in the summer of 2006.

 

The American international arrived from Manchester United, where he had found himself behind Dutchman Edwin van der Sar in the pecking order.

 

He has, however, made 77 appearances for Alex Ferguson's men since joining in 2003.

 

Before joining United, Howard had starred for the New York/New Jersey Metrostars, where he succeeded American international Tony Meola as first choice keeper.

 

He received his first international cap in March 2002 agains Ecuador and as kept five clean sheets for the States. He goes to the 2006 World Cup in Germany as America's second choice stopper.

 

Upon the confirmation of his move to Everton, Howard said he was more excited at joining the Toffees than when he arrived in Manchester.

 

He will battle with Richard Wright, veteran Nigel Martyn and rookie Iain Turner for the goalkeeping gloves at Goodison Park."

 

presumably Everton are aware that martyn has retired?

 

so he's up against wright and turner.

 

now wrights stats for last season were about the same as martyns, even tho he played fewer games!

 

is howard the automatic first choice?

Presumably that article was from before Martyns retirement...the most recent similar I could find was..

 

"Following Nigel Martyn's enforced retirement from the game, the Blues will have Howard vying with Richard Wright, Iain Turner and John Ruddy for the goalkeeping berth."

 

....don't think he's certain for number one although he'd be favourite at the mo.

I think he's got to be ahead of Dickie, I would hope Moyes would not overlook Turner and just start with Howard automatically, would really like to see turner in between the sticks for a few more games this season (Cup games would give him more experience)

Wright's self inflicted injury where he tripped over the sign saying "do not train here" just summed it up for me.

 

If Howard lives up to his potential then he should deffo be 1st choice. Would like to see Turner getting a shout though. I'd personally be quite happy if we sold Wright tomorrow.

^^good point, like if we sold Wright then didnt sign Howard we would be stuck with Turner

i wouldnt say stuck with Turner like its a bad thing, having Turner as our number one if Howard goes back to Manure next season is not such a bad thing for Everton. Aslong as Moyes plays him at every oppurtunity then he would be a fine candidate to be between the sticks.

I thought Turner had played a few more games, but anyway thats still more than Ruddy. Ruddy didnt even play a full half, he did do very well though and i would love to see him between the sticks for us within the next few years. Nice bit of business he was by Moyes me thinks.

 

 

Sorry i pressed edit instead of quote

Turner was sent off with his first touch and Ruddy played 95% of the game!
