We are getting closer to the big game. It's getting to all of us. Jogger is as excited as a pig in shit.
The Everton players are getting nervous as well, even for the lads who had an extended jolly due to the Euros. Jags can't wait to get going
Phil Jagielka said: "I am looking forward to the first game. When I drove into training for the first time I got goosebumps at coming to see the lads, shaking their hands and having a bit of a laugh and a joke.
"I've never been this late back into pre-season and me and Bainesy have been training with the reserves. We have come back in decent condition but it has been good.
"I can't wait for the first game and kick on from there."
