January Window

Robert  Tressell
Posted 26/11/2020

The recent bump in our season has prompted a lot of talk about improving the squad. Towards the end of the summer window, we looked well placed. Indeed we've shown repeatedly that our fully fit first 11 is excellent. Capable of great football and ...

VAR and the Liverpool

Gerry Killen
Posted 20/11/2020

VAR referee David Coote is being stood down from refereeing Liverpool's next game because he didn't advise the referee to give a red card to Jordan Pickford for that tackle on Virgil van Dijk.

This is a Kangaroo Court by a bunch of Redneck...

Which Premier League Team has impressed you the most so far this season?

Ajay Gopal
Posted 12/11/2020

We are eight games into the season, and we have had five league leaders so far. This season could turn out to be one of the most evenly contested seasons in many a year. After a promising beginning, which now seems like a distant memory, we have s...

Who made you go “Wow”?

Andy Crooks
Posted 05/11/2020

Duncan Mackenzie... yeah, he did it for me.

He had everything that didn't matter. Did he protect the defence? No fucking way. Did he run himself into the ground? Nah.

He was a statement, that we signed who we liked. Him and B...

Roger Dangerfield
Posted 02/11/2020

I've been an Everton supporter from a lad and I'm 75 and I've seen some great teams over the years. I had a season ticket for well over 18 years till I moved from Liverpool to live in Newcastle 40 years ago. I'm very frustrated over the recent years ...

1963 League title special song recorded

Peter Phillips
Posted 31/10/2020

Dear Toffeeweb, do any of your readers have any info or memories about the song that the 1963 League winning team recorded at Phillips Sound Recording Service in Kensington, Liverpool?

Percy Phillips recorded team members along with a profe...

Double standards and selective memory loss!

Santosh Benjamin
Posted 20/10/2020

I am fed up of reading the ridiculous stuff that’s been in the media this week following the derby.

There have been many false dawns over the last few decades and as a born pessimist, I never get my hopes up too high. I was skeptical about...

Big Club Mentality

Robert  Tressell
Posted 20/10/2020

We're a funny old club. Part of the Premier League for the duration of its history, yet very much marginalised. We've seen middling yo-yo clubs overtake us (Chelsea and Man City), whole dynasties built and rebuilt and decline (Man Utd and Arsenal), a...

The Hypocrisy of Ignorant Pundits

Martin O'Connor
Posted 19/10/2020

As the 237th Merseyside derby ends in a 2-2 stalemate, the outcry over the Van Dijk – Jordon Pickford incident is as media-biased as you can find. It is also bizarre (or maybe not) that the idiots who make an easy living talking rubbish as so-ca...

Where are the Sky 6 today?

David Cooper
Posted 18/10/2020

Well, they are not in the top 3 after 5 games!

Now I know all the sayings – take one game at a time; it’s a marathon, not a sprint... but today they are nowhere to be seen!

After the end of this weekend’s games, they are 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th...

Why are we Evertonians?

Andy Crooks
Posted 11/10/2020

I was pleased, actually, really pleased when Dom scored for England on his debut. Why should that be so? I don't know him. I certainly didn't care when Harry Kane scored his first international goal.

Of course, Dom plays for Everton, my team...

Pay-per-view for £14.95 per game

Posted 11/10/2020

There is widespread anger at plans to charge football fans in the UK £14.95 to watch Premier League matches they have been prevented from attending in person.

Fans have reacted angrily after it was confirmed on Friday tha...

Everton on the radio in the 1960s

Rob Sawyer
Posted 07/10/2020

I have recently been asked about radio commentaries of domestic and European Everton home fixtures in the early to mid 1960s (in the days before Radio Merseyside and Radio City).

Do any of our more senior ToffeeWeb readers recall if they liste...

Theo, you're just a poor Aaron Lennon

James Daniels
Posted 07/10/2020

I'm a man of extremes; there are relatively few things that I think are alright. Theo Walcott seems to have fallen into this category for a lot of fans... they think he's alright.

Well, I don't think he's alright. I think he's the single biggest...

Carlo must not be Spraked

Andy Crooks
Posted 03/10/2020

To "Sprake". I think it is an old Yorkshire term which means to fool no-one other than the one person it is vital you must fool.

I think it is particular to football and has its origins in the fine but controversial Leeds team of the 1970s. Gary ...

Blue Streak Special

Brian Wilkinson
Posted 02/10/2020

Does anyone remember travelling on the Blue Streak InterCity Specials or have any recollections of them?

I used to travel by car or coach, but it would be nice to hear other posters' memories of their days out from Lime Street Station. We al...

Niels Nkounkou & Wayne Rooney

Tony  Everan
Posted 25/09/2020

I thought Nkounkou's display on Wednesday was so impressive it deserved its own thread.

Two days later and I am still marvelling and really buzzing at his performance. As the season wears on there will be far bigger challenges for the 19 yea...

Transfer Prospects - Centre-Back

Jonathan Williams
Posted 22/09/2020

As a long-term fan and an avid transfer gossip enthusiast, I think this summer's transfer window has been the most productive in recent memory. The acquisitions of Rodriquez, Allan and Doucouré were swift and seemed to hit the mark in exactly...

Doucoure Chant

Hayden Turner
Posted 20/09/2020

Right, so been as Doucouré is a Toffee, we have to come up with a chant... And it would be silly not to do it to the tune of "That's Amore"! What do we think?...

Would Arteta have made the same signings?

Derek Taylor
Posted 09/09/2020

For those who don't bother to read my oft regarded 'negative' posts, I have to say, right away, that I would much have preferred our Club's leaders to have gone for young Arteta rather than 'Grandad Carlo'.

I had wrongly believed from the mo...
