Bill’s Big Decision

With Bill Kenwright close to making his Herculean decision, who will be Everton's next manager?
by Mark Eaton : 29/05/2013

Misfortune or Carelessness or Worse?

The current Everton management have recently proved yet again that they have an innate ability to market in anyway positively Everton Football Club. Not only this, all they seem capable of is creating situations which paint EFC in a wholly negative light.
by Rupert Sullivan : 28/05/2013

The Five Stages of Grief

"[W]hen I saw the new badge on the official website, something inside me died."
by John Delannoy : 27/05/2013

Open Letter to Everton FC

As the backlash over the new Everton badge grows, fans are encouraged to send their disapproval to the Club.
by Joe Jennings (@NoToNewEFCBadge) : 27/05/2013

The Kings, The Knights and the Lepers.

Ian seems to be going for angling for Steve Clarke (!) as the new Everton manager, controversially grouping current favourite Martinez in amongst the 'lepers'!?!
by Ian Robert : 27/05/2013

Tick Tock went the Clock...

Addressing the Criticisms of Moyes's Performance at Everton

In an in-depth look at the Scot's 11-year tenure, specifically addressing the criticisms leveled at him.
by Marko Poutiainen : 24/05/2013

One last signing, Mr Moyes

David Moyes's last act as Everton boss should be to consult in the appointment of his successor, argues Stefan Tosev.

Top memories of True Everton Legends

I am lucky enough to be of an age to have seen great Championship-winning sides at Goodison Park and have many memories of my childhood days at the Old Lady (it was state of the art back then) and Bellefield.
by Derek Wadeson : 20/05/2013

From my seat: Chelsea (A)

A trip out to London for the last game of the season, London trips always stretch the wallet but it was the manager's last game in charge and always a chance it might be the game where we at last win at the home of a team where the manager hasn’t won in all his 11 years of residency... and wouldn’t you just know it — he didn’t break that duck.
by Ken Buckley : 20/05/2013

Crossing The Rubicon

It is perhaps with some irony that David Moyes's final match in charge of Everton could be viewed as a perfect microcosm of his entire reign.
by Rob Riddal : 20/05/2013

Back to the drawing board

How is Everton going to shape up after the Moyes Era?
by Vinod Kumar : 17/05/2013

Martinez: Can We Afford to Take the Risk?

Some reservations about how Roberto Martinez might try to change Everton's playing style, if he were to become the next manager.
by Peter Jones : 16/05/2013

Time to Modernise the ''Manager's'' Role

There has been a lot of talk about who we get in to replace David Moyes and not enough talk about whether all of Moyes’s duties should go to one man.

A Poisoned Chalice Awaits Annointed Lemming

The Case for Vitor Pereira

"Vitor Pereira has shown that he is a winner. He would attract high quality young players from abroad and would look to push us upward from the day he arrived."

Ending An Era In Style

Match Report: Everton v West Ham Utd
by Paul Traill : 13/05/2013

From my seat: West Ham (H)

On the hour mark, a Moyes chant from the Street End was picked up by all four sides of Goodison which set up a Phil Spector like ‘Wall of Sound’. You just had to be in attendance to get the utter emotional outpouring that it brought. As all our anthems were belted out I saw hardened ‘Home and Away’ers’ wiping tears from their eyes. Yes, I included, it was just one of those things that happen at Goodison now and again and you know you will never forget it. There was no doubt Moyes was leaving with the thanks of the vast majority of match goers. Hell he had to turn and return to the bench...
by Ken Buckley : 12/05/2013

How good was David Moyes?

Another review of the Moyes Era
by Craig Heywood : 12/05/2013

Make us proud!

I am calling on all Evertonians fortunate enough to attend tomorrow's game to do us proud, and give Moyes a good sending off.

The Next Step

by Alan Feehely : 09/05/2013

All I’ve Ever Really Known

David Moyes has been there through it all. From my first day at high school, my first kiss, my first pint, to my first away day. Moyes was always in charge.
by Adam Cunliffe : 08/05/2013

The Greatest Day

A fond look back 50 years to the day Everton won the 1963 League Championship.

Wear the Black Kit at Anfield?

First-time poster, Tony, floats a radical idea for changing the dynamic at the derby.
by Tony McArdle : 29/04/2013

Time to say Goodbye?

David Moyes has demonstrated considerable skills at football management during his 11 years at the club, and every fan should be thankful that we have had him here. But he has reached his own glass ceiling, and instead of pushing our faces against the glass and looking on at the top four with envious but resigned eyes, he should be pushing against the glass with a determination to break through it.
by Shaun Sparke : 28/04/2013

Big Pay Rise for Moyes, Please!

Cost-Benefit Analysis of the Moyes tenure.
by Paul Abel : 26/04/2013

The Leaving of Goodison

What Goodison Park said to me, as a 4-year-old, approaching the ground on my Dad's shoulders, having ‘driven’ the bus at the front of the top deck and jumped off at the Mons 'cos the exercise kept him going, past the Water Works and through the terraced streets, then St Luke’s and Goodison Road,... What Goodison Park has always said to me, is 'Wow!'; a secular cathedral of epic scale, proportion and beauty.
by Nick Timmons : 21/04/2013

Candy Crush timeout rambling

I wrote couple of articles a few years ago about how a team play to a manager’s ethos — especially in the critical moments and, regardless of some moments of individual excellence or indeed individual errors, like Baines's howler the other day, the way the team play overall is the Moyes way. It’s as we all know primarily defensive and a wee bit old school: effective-ish but not inspiring.

What It Means to Be an Irish Evertonian

Players Ratings vs Arsenal

I was at The Emirates last night and feel compelled to write up some of my feelings on the performance.
by Sam Hoare : 17/04/2013

The (distant) Smell of Success?

Almost exactly a year ago, I posted a fan article entitled ‘Cheer Up, Anichebe’. Have just watched his goal and celebrations and the contrast could not be greater – could this knee-slidin’, gun-totin’, SMILING scorer be the same guy who, after going on a mini-scoring spree last spring, looked like he had sentenced his family to death by ruining a shady betting syndicate’s big gamble each time he hit the back of the net?
by Ben Patchesa : 13/04/2013

Three Cheers for Captain Pip

Recognition for the contribution Phil Neville made to Everton during a crucial period for the club.

Blue Union – 2 Years In and Next to Nothing Achieved

"Is the Blue Union actually needed? Are they just making the situation worse? Would we be better off without them? If they’re sticking around, could they do more?"

Spare a thought for the biopsychosocial male

Champions League in Everton's hands

Everton's performances in the reamining games through the final quarter of the season hold the key to their progression into the Champions League, 2013-14.
by James Cadwaladr : 27/03/2013

The Time for Change is Now

"With ten games to go and Everton with pretty much nothing to aim for, I think we should just go gung-ho for the rest of the season."
by Jake Wilson : 14/03/2013

Under Pressure?

The biggest single problem is that there is ZERO pressure on anyone involved with the club from within its own little bubble.

Tactically inept

A retrospective assessment of where David Moyes went wrong against Wigan in Saturday's FA Cup quarter final disaster
by Jim Hourigan : 12/03/2013

Born, not manufactured

Like all of us, I crave the slightest bit of success again. I get wrapped up in forward thinking on the back of two or three wins. I'll start thinking that we are going to be back to where we belong again because we've beaten Man Utd at home. One thing persists though. We are ALWAYS let down when it matters.
by Craig Walker : 11/03/2013

The Duncan Ferguson Affair

There's an ingredient that was starkly absent on Saturday against Wigan: Passion.

Kenwright, Moyes and Our Net Spend

A review of the current Everton situation, which is not down to one man or one single cause, this analysis is broken down into the related key areas of Moyes, Kenwright and our financial situation.
by Garry Corgan : 10/03/2013

The Tipping Point

Everton are rapidly approaching a Tipping Point were action and changes need to happen at all levels of the club. If not, we will spiral into Decline and it will be painful.

Abandon the Dream?

Should we abandon all thought of a big-money buyout?

A View From Across the Pond

A relatively new fan from New York weighs in on Everton's immediate future
by Phil Friedman : 04/03/2013

A New Future

Moving the team on next season... after Moyes, Fellaini and Baines have gone.
by Sam Hoare : 04/03/2013

One Step Closer To Wembley

It’s great to progress, particularly when I was fearing elimination and I feel a home game against Wigan on a Saturday afternoon with a vibrant crowd could be enough to spur Everton on to Wembley once again.
by Paul Traill : 27/02/2013

Nothing but the best is good enough

In truth, I believe that Moyes is a good solid manager, arguably one of the better modern-day managers, but I don’t believe he is a great manager, or at least not as yet.
by Dave Whitwell : 26/02/2013

What do we know?

Everton supporters have rightly questioned what the hell is going on... but do we have the answers and are we asking the right questions?

Last Days in the Bunker... again?

An eerie comparison between the last three months of Smith and last two months Moyes...

My take on Moyes's Everton reign

I have read a lot of opinions on David Moyes, both good and bad, and I'd just like to give my views on his time here.
by David Flanagan : 21/02/2013

Nil money ... Nisi Optimum

We all look at our translated club motto – “Nothing But the Best” – and should realise that its sentiments are from a bygone age... What a bloody noose it must be around any Everton manager’s neck. We, as fans, hold it like a gun against the club / manager’s head because we long for it to be true.
by Jim Potter : 20/02/2013

Thomas… Latchford… Goal!

Dave Thomas in conversation with Rob Sawyer
by Rob Sawyer : 18/02/2013

The Night Before

Heightened expectations, years of a bare trophy cabinet, the dour predictions of our manager have all led us to believe that we should be better off.

From some of the reactions, you would think the Big Fella had committed murder. Marouane is getting it from all sides yet, although his reaction was foolish, its nothing we haven't all seen before.
by Tony Marsh : 17/12/2012

Play the Game

Players need to know they cannot get away with abusing a referee, cannot get away with fouling in the box, cannot abuse other players racially and finally, they need to realise that football IS a contact sport — not touch rugby.

2013 – A Step Into the Known or Unknown?

The Unknown. If David Moyes moves on, that is exactly where we will be... But strangely, if he stays on, we might also be in the unknown — A brave new world of Champions League and increased income.

2012-13 – The Season the Perceptions Changed?

This season, I have seen a big upturn... After years and years of taking our punishment off the big boys, now we go after them. We fear nobody... but there are four things that are stopping us from going 4th.

My Everton/Donovan Conspiracy Theory

Donovan's string of comments and interviews, coupled with my belief that there is a gentlemen's agreement for a discount deal in January – both lead me to believe Donovan will be signing a three year contract in January for a fee of around £1.5 million

My Apology to Colin Harvey

I was a happy man when Harvey was sacked and I was ecstatic when I heard that Kendall Mk II would be his successor. Hindsight tells me what a fool I was. The more I reflect on my folly, the more do I admire Colin Harvey. This man, in spite of being sacked and humiliated, still consented to being Kendall MkII´s second-in-command. His love for Everton FC must have been truly infinite.

A New Dawn For Blue-Red Relations?

After yesterday’s outpouring of sympathy for the families of the Hillsborough victims, the sincere respect expressed on ToffeeWeb for the campaigners, and the profound sense of Merseyside unity that emerged, I can’t help wondering where this leaves the relationship between fans of Everton and LFC?
