The Moyes Conundrum

"sometimes we reduce the argument about Moyes and his merits to almost comic-book simplicity, and we are all too guilty of failing to see the granular detail."
by Declan O'Shaughnessy : 18/06/2012

Toffeemen Facebook Group

John Hermanson set up a group on Facebook last year to raise money for Everton to build a stadium and provide money for the manager... without much success.

Petit Francais ? The Montpellier Model

Montpelier, who just won the French league, were promoted back to the top flight in France in 2009 (just 3 years ago). They have extremely low costs and spend very little on transfers. In fact, a lot of their side is made up of players that came through their youth system.

The Ultimate Futility

Five-Year Plans

David Moyes seems to like his five-year plans. He also seems to like unveiling them after the five-years have passed. Let's call it 'retrospective compartmentalising'.

Outstaying Your Welcome

or an Everton manager to put out a weakened team in a Derby was totally unforgivable and surely now only the ultra deluded can want him to remain as manager of our great club.

Everton?s Battle for Hearts over Minds

"My honest opinion is that Moyes could do better and we could also probably do much worse... It?s a nice enough balance for a club with no money, but ultimately it?s a recipe for mediocrity"

Shaun contrasts the media hype surrounding Moyes's 10th anniversary with his feelings following the manager's post-match comments after losing 3-0 to Liverpool.
by Shaun Cox : 14/03/2012

To all Moyes's critics

A lot of criticism of David Moyes has embarked from I would say a majority on this site. That does surprise me a great deal, because he has worked wonders with our club.

Relocation or Renovation: Football?s Big Question

I?ve written this article as part of my A-Level English Language coursework folder. It equates to roughly 10% of my final grade. The brief was to write an article worthy of publication in a magazine/newspaper. My style model was FourFourTwo magazine and as such is about football.
by Adam Cunliffe : 02/03/2012

Strikers' Graveyard?

Louis Saha`s transfer to Spurs came as something of a surprise, his form for most of the season had been poor, he appeared not to care. David Moyes no longer seemed able to coax a performance out of him. Has Goodison become a graveyard for strikers?
by Dave Wilson : 23/02/2012

If only the season had started in January

it is a familiar lament for Blues fans; one that can regularly be heard on the terraces of Goodison Park come the end of the Premier League campaign.

Everton Myths

Football is all about opinions and differing points of view. Although sometimes, we all hear things that we can?t quite believe. This is my list of ?Everton Myths? ? things I?ve heard, at the game or elsewhere, that I just can?t get my head around.

An Utter Disgrace

by Chris Butler : 12/02/2012

Pressure From The Front

After Everton?s recent ?success? of a six-match unbeaten run, which includes victories over the nation?s two biggest spending clubs, David Moyes should be looking at what has changed from earlier in the season.
by Matthew Lovekin : 12/02/2012

Another three points toward safety, or could it just be something more, as the Blues send the Pensioners packing.

For the rest of the season, all our best players are on short-term loan deals...
by Matthew Lovekin : 02/02/2012

The Benefits of Change

Why has this change taken so long? Was it the Argentine?s time to adjust since his arrival, or and end to Moyes?s patience with Saha? Or did he simply strike lucky?
by Nick Entwistle : 01/02/2012

Bill Kenwright — Master Story Teller

What a great day Tuesday 31 January 2012 was for all Everton supporters. But even more importantly, what a great day it was for Billy Bullshitter! Some good transfer window dealings, both inwards and outwards, and a great win over league leaders Manchester City.
by John Roberts : 01/02/2012

A nice gloss

No team plays to their full capacity every game but we have been so far below that level for the whole of this season that it brings more questions than answers.

Investing in the Future

I would like to see Moyes is using his resources to secure young players who can benefit the club, one way or another, for years to come.

Dire Straits

I honestly think the best thing Everton can do instead of us all moaning is give Moyes and Kenwright our full support and let?s see what happens over the summer.

Is Moyes doing a Rooney with Barkley?

Everton fans fear a repeat of the Wayne Rooney saga, especially as rumors have already hit the tabloids about interest for 18 year old from big names such as Manchester City, Barcelona and Chelsea.

An Open Letter to Bill Kenwright

An Open Letter to Bill Kenwright
by Steven Flavin : 13/01/2012

We don't believe what the Kenwright says..

How dumb or forgetful does Bill Kenwright think we are? Did he think we wouldn?t be expecting a new signing now? He?s either patronizing or he?s made a failed attempt at being crafty..
by Andrew  James : 12/01/2012

Carpe Diem

This March will see David Moyes's 10th anniversary at Everton! In his near-decade at our beloved club, Moyes has won... nothing. He has overseen the first trophy-less decade since the 1950's - only the second decade without a trophy in our history!
by Scott Campbell : 12/01/2012

From My Seat: Tottenham (A)

We stuck at it and even without testing their keeper we at least were not disgraced against a team right on top of their game

Pat Nevin, Hall of Fame

In light of his forthcoming induction into the Gwladys St. Hall of Fame I made contact with Pat Nevin and interviewed him with a view to publication on ToffeeWeb.

Enough is Enough

Evertonians are all too depressingly familiar with watching their club being dismantled, but the current plight is an order of magnitude greater than the dips we have witnessed in recent years.
by Nick Armitage : 12/01/2012

The Lost Generation

This once great footballing institution is slipping further into the abyss. And the heart breaking part of it all is that the real losers of it all aren?t us. It?s the next generation of Blues.
by Adam Cunliffe : 11/01/2012

Another Strong Second Half?

Now that Everton are once again at a halfway point of another Premier League season, the time is now to question can David Moyes shape another strong second half for the Toffees?
by Scott Brady : 10/01/2012

Moyes ? make the choice!

The Hungarian coach Bela Guttman always advised that "the third year was fatal"; yet we have David Moyes two months shy of his 10th anniversary as manager...

by Charlie Percival : 07/01/2012

The half-way point of the Season

This is just some thoughts on our first nineteen games of the season (nineteen to go ? exactly halfway), in the context of several seasons of relative underperformance and the well-catalogued financial woes that seemingly make us unable to compete at the top of the table.

That's Nick Armitage's verdict on the shocking home loss to Bolton Wanderers
by Nick Armitage : 05/01/2012

Stracqualursi and Drenthe, Quality or not?

In Stracqualursi and Drenthe, we have two guys on loan who have played some part this far, and they have been both good and bad. They are out of contract come summer and they could be good players for the future, they are both young, under 25 years old, they bring a great work ethic and seem to give us an added edge in their own way.

Memories of the FA Cup-winning defender who lost his battle with cancer this month
by Neil Smith : 02/01/2012

Bring them all on... still!

David Moyes has us undefeated in four, we have the fourth tightest defence and should we win our game in hand we would enter into the second half of the season only nine points from fourth.
by Nick Entwistle : 02/01/2012

Time to Blood the Youngsters

Moyes as gone full circle as he said he intended on getting the average age down and wanted to build a younger side for the future.

It is clear for all Evertonians that the current squad needs re-vamping.

Back to the Stadium of light on Boxing Day ? or should that be the Stadium of wind? There was plenty of it about from both the elements and the fans...
by Ken Buckley : 27/12/2011

It's That Time Again

It?s that time of the year again. The time when the iniquities of extreme free market capitalism are laid bare for all to see... The time when little Evertonians all over the World who have been good girls and boys (in the main) await feverishly for gifts from afar and goodies to be unwrapped..
by Kevin Sparke : 24/12/2011

Time for wholesale renewal

I don't think I would be that offended if the club was to write the season off from now and take what I think would be a solid course of action.

What's the worst that can happen?

Somebody said recently that if the job of managing Everton was to suddenly be put up for grabs there would be a queue of applicants stretching all the way back to Aberdeen... but is there a man out there who can do a better job than Moyes?

Fan Power: The Myth of Johnson's Exit

There were all kinds of factors leading to Johnson?s departure and if the outcry by fans had any role to play it was minimal. Johnson was very unpopular but it was not the People's Club's People Power that drove him out.

by Jay Harris : 12/12/2011

Well it's not for want of trying

Everyone played quite well, no-one had a stinker, we should win the next five games...
by Paul Traill : 11/12/2011

Results Indict the Moyes Defence

Moyes had actually given up on scoring by taking off our lone striker, Saha, and putting on our seventh defender, Distin ? a move that would have been cowardly and disgraceful if we had been winning but which given the circumstances would have made Don Revie blush.
by Peter Fearon : 10/12/2011

From my seat: Arsenal (A)

Heitinga had Van Persie in his pocket until Moyes subbed off Saha and went to 4-6-0.

Reflections on a footballer

Gary Speed, in a life that promises so much and often delivers so little, you lived your life to the full... in the great arena that is football, and you played on the biggest domestic stage and represented your clubs and country with pride.

Gary Speed ? The Final Piece of the Jigsaw

Gary Speed?s goal return in blue was better than anywhere else. He should have been the last piece of the jigsaw thus enabling us to get into Europe regularly, win cups and even be good enough to enjoy the Champions League party. None of that happened.

Boring Blues?

Personally, I loved that gritty win over Wolves because it reminded me of the early Moyes years, winning the physical battles and getting the result, inching up the table and watching the optimism grow.

All You Need Is Luck

The problem we have under Deadly Dave is that our performances rarely change ? it's just that the results differ. We either get lucky and win or we don't get lucky and we lose.

Femi Orenuga made headlines here in Essex back in 2008. Southend were playing Luton Town in the FA Cup and in the 93rd minute of the match the Shrimpers manager made a substition and the then 15-year-old Femi Orenuga became the youngest player ever to play for Southend.
