But here I’ve noticed it especially. I really looks like a family and everyone is looking out for each other.”..........................If the rumours that the derby is to be played on March 20/21st are true then he expects to be fit enough to play by then definitely . I'd say Si's source is looking good .
Everton striker Nikica Jelavic says he is already desperate to make up for lost time. A groin problem has restricted the Croat to just 30 minutes of action since he completed a move from Glasgow Rangers on the final day of the January transfer window. The 24-year-old came through a training session at Finch Farm last week, however, and has now flown home for his country's friendly against Sweden on Wednesday. Jelavic admits his start to life at Goodison Park has been far from ideal but says he is keen to put things right at the earliest opportunity."It's been frustrating for me, believe me," he told evertontv. "I can't wait to get out on the pitch again. "I think it's been a good thing for me that we have had a two-week break because I have been able to prepare myself well and hopefully I can be ready to get out there soon and show people what I can do."Despite his personal frustration, Jelavic has been thrilled at Everton's progress in recent weeks. The forward has seen the Blues defeat Manchester City, Chelsea and Blackpool since his arrival and says the performances have been top-rate demonstrations of why he elected to make Goodison his new home. "We showed with the three points against Chelsea that we are a big club and we can play against big clubs as well," he said. "It is a big club, my teammates are good and I think we can do good things. "It's very exciting for me. City and Chelsea are really big clubs and we took six points against them. We can play against anyone I think."
