Not enough to strengthen yet

Jim Bennings
Posted 06/07/2015

I just hope Roberto Martinez has got plans to sign at least three more players because Im struggling to really see how we have strengthened the squad so far.With rumours of numerous players leaving, then a small injury crisis leaves us belly down...

Why we must sign Aaron Lennon

Ben Jones
Posted 30/06/2015

Aaron Lennon coming into the club on loan in January was a good bit of business by Everton. Here was an experienced international with pace to burn and who knew what it's like to play in the Premier League. What I wasn't expecting was a player to put...

The First Eleven

Shain Sewbaran
Posted 26/06/2015

Great business thus far .... I would really hope the gaffer can land Aaron Lennon and the starting 11 would then be complete: Tim Howard Seamus Coleman Leighton Baines John Stones Phil Jag...

Keeper: David Ospina?

Fran Mitchell
Posted 26/06/2015

This may be a moot point, as it appears Martinez is happy to stick with Howard for at least the upcoming season, but I see that Arsenal's David Ospina looks likely to move on following Peter Cech's arrival. He cost Arsenal 3 million, so can't ...

Our Best 11

David Chait
Posted 26/06/2015

This is no doubt very premature, but having had two very early (for Everton) purchases, I am seriously scratching my head as to what is our best 11 and where Roberto Martinez is going with them. RM's love for his old position has seen a very bloated ...

EFC Footballer Job Descriptions

Laurie Hartley
Posted 25/06/2015

wrote a series of job descriptions for footballers.My intention was to post it but I changed my mind as Toffeeweb was on fire and I thought it probably wasn't a good idea.Now that we are in the close season and many of the current posts...

What money can't buy

Andy Crooks
Posted 21/06/2015

We don't know what Everton have to spend this summer and neither do the press. I like transfer speculation, mad rumours are what get me through the close season. I think that there are changes that might be made that won't cost a penny. ...

Lack of height and lack of goals

Steve Cotton
Posted 20/06/2015

I'm not sure if anyone else is thinking the same, but I think we are suffering from a severe lack of height in the team, and a severe lack of goals from midfield. I am pretty sure that Stones is our only tall defender at 6' 2" so if Luka...

Idle Minds = football manager mode

Fran Mitchell
Posted 18/06/2015

We're in the season of silly. That famous period that distracts football fans in the months of June or July.While the Copa America, World Cup (f), U21s, Euro Cup qualifiers and various league championships outside Europe are occuring, they just do...

Everton players' percent of league minutes played in 2014-15

Geoffrey Caveney
Posted 16/06/2015

The following is a breakdown of the number of minutes played by each Everton player in the Premier League in 2014-15, and the percent of the season's minutes that represents. The data comes from . Observations: ...

A question of non-TV Revenue

John  Voigt
Posted 15/06/2015

A club like Evertons top priority is to stay out of the relegation battle. I cant see any of the top 6 revenue clubs getting dragged into a relegation battle but ALL of the other 14 teams could wind up in a relegation scrap. There really isnt much...

Word on the Garbutt Deal

Craig Mills
Posted 14/06/2015

I had a real good source tell me yesterday that Luke Garbutt will be signing a 5-year contract extension with Everton, Bill Kenwright has personally got involved with the contract negotiations but we will now have to pay him 30k a week to stay inste...

Centre-back options?

Geoffrey Caveney
Posted 14/06/2015

Scrolling through the Rumour Mill, I see loads of strikers and wingers named, but precious few centre-backs. God knows we need wingers, but thankfully Deulofeu is looking likely now, and I'm confident we'll bring Lennon back too. Centre-back is th...

Free Agents

Nigel Gregson
Posted 10/06/2015

Since freebies are all we can afford, here is a full list of free agents being released from all clubs. Who do we fancy? ARSENAL: Abou Diaby and Ryo Miyaichi (last seen on loan at FC Twente). ASTON VILLA: Darren Bent (already s...

Forgotten men...

Danny Halsall
Posted 09/06/2015

Hello fellow blues, it has been a while since I posted anything at all here on ToffeeWeb, mainly down to our sub-standard season. But now that the 14-15 season has been and gone, I thought I would write something about the coming season and what w...

Kenny Sansom

Brian Hill
Posted 08/06/2015

I just read a story about Sansom being an alcoholic, gambler and homeless. He played for us for a very short time, so short to me that I only know about it from history books. Does anybody know would he qualify for help from Everton Former Play...

Learning from Juventus

Clarence B Yurcan
Posted 07/06/2015

Looking at the ToffeeWeb comment section on the (very fantastic) Champions League final, there were several sarcastic comments along the lines of "We'll be there once we get our billionaire" etc. But the thing is, we need not be defeatist pessim...

Bribes and cheating

Thomas Lennon
Posted 05/06/2015

FIFA paid a non-transparent bribe to FIA after they were eliminated from the World Cup by Henri's handball. Much of the chatter is about the bribe but I would suggest that it is more condemning to ask why the payment was necessary. A ref...

Blues Goal of the Year?

Tony Cheek
Posted 03/06/2015

Not been an outstanding season for breathtaking goals, but my fave has got to be McGeady's stunning curler against Leicester in the very first game Any better?...

Striking Similarities

Kevin Tully
Posted 03/06/2015

Take any two Premier League managers and you can usually find some common ground to make a valid comparison. None more so than the current Everton and Liverpool bosses though. It's quite amazing how the upcoming season may possibly define their ca...
