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...

The Good, the Bad and the Handsome

Tony  Everan
Posted 08/09/2020

If you’ve tuned in to hear about the timeless refulgence of Gomes’s mane, the oiled sculpture of James’s six pack, or the pristine glacial rock pools that are Sigurdsson’s eyes, I’m afraid you will be disappointed.

What interests m...

Time to get your act together!

Christine Foster
Posted 06/09/2020

It's quite a while since I penned an article here, but reading the Sports blog of The Guardian's Jonathan Wilson annoyed me, not because it was a disingenuous perspective on our club, players and owner, but it highlighted for me exactly where we a...

It Was Time to Go Long, Long Ago

Clive Rogers
Posted 02/09/2020

I clearly remember the banners in the crowd at any away game and the one behind a plane flying over Goodison Park: “It’s time to go Kenwright and Co” was the message. Well the Co have gone, but the Kenwright lingers on. What year was that, i...

The Easiest Time To Create A Successful Team Is Now

Barry Rathbone
Posted 16/08/2020

Barcelona getting a stuffing from Bayern Munich is apparently down to poor recruitment stretching back seasons an amazing claim given their resources and pulling power. Ditto Real Madrid, Man Utd and Chelsea – not to mention money bags and perennia...

The things I love about Everton

Stephen Brown
Posted 09/08/2020

Go easy on me — it’s the first time I’ve posted in the mailbag!

I’m sitting in the hospital with my Everton made 5-year-old son, decked out in his Everton kit! He fell off monkey bars and broke his arm...

I’m sitting reading To...

One bright light (and it could have been two)

Phil (Kelsall) Roberts
Posted 06/08/2020

Amidst the gloom and depression of the last 12 months of football, there is one bright light that some of us may have missed.

The average age of the 11 players taking the field during the season was the lowest for 21 years. The season 1998-99 had...

The solution to marginal VAR calls: no lines!

Michael Kenrick
Posted 06/08/2020

It seems the problem with marginal VAR calls is not the principle that players shouldn't be punished for having odd body parts ruled against for being mere millimeters offside. That is what has riled fans of the game, seeing the virtual lines used on...

The A to Z of Everton

Alun Jones
Posted 31/07/2020

Whilst contemplating the close season and tired already of the speculation about who is going where I idled away some time picking Everton teams using only one surname letter. I thought it might amuse some of you to try over the break and see which ...

Prospects in this Transfer Window

Bill Gall
Posted 23/07/2020

With the news that Højbjerg prefers Tottenham over Everton, I wonder what supporters feel about Everton's prospects in the transfer window?

Of the 10 teams above us, 8 have owners who are richer than Farhad Moshiri, 4 have new grounds (Man Cit...

Our Spongers XI

Don Alexander
Posted 22/07/2020

I've watched us this season, as ever, with increasing disappointment. We are rarely lifted out of our seat by creativity because more often it's anger/frustration that causes such a reaction.

And then, as fans down the years have done, comes the ...

We the 'fans' are killing this club

Ricky Oak 
Posted 18/07/2020

We create our own reality. Okay, it is true that we are not a 'fashionable' club, and for some reason most commentators, pundits and referees dislike us; however, we as 'fans' seem to eat whatever 'they' say or even help 'them' when we also turn on o...

Mason Holgate, Everton Captain

Tony Everan
Posted 14/07/2020

'Where is the captain who sees it going wrong on the pitch and tells the players to change or help?' — A recent question in a post by Christine got me thinking…

How about a change of captain?

Seamus Coleman is a fantastic servant of the c...

Last Chance for Marcel Brands

Mike Oates
Posted 13/07/2020

Wolves 3 Everton 0... that’s right: Wolves 3 Everton 0 – could have been 8-0 and it would have been deserved. Two teams a year ago hoping to get onto Europe; Wolves did, we didn’t. Two teams this season hoping to break into the top 4, Wolves ne...

In Praise of Richarlison!

David Cooper
Posted 09/07/2020

I am most likely very biased but is there a better attacking player anywhere in the Premier League than Richarlison?

I would not swap him for Salah, Jesus (comes very close), Auybamiyang, Jimenez or Vardi and Harry Kane. The goal he scored toda...

Do or die

Tony  Everan
Posted 07/07/2020

Senior midfield problems that won’t go away:

Sigurdsson – Not a midfielder

Iwobi – Not a midfielder

Bernard – Not influential

Gomes – Slow, no forward drive or dynamism

Walcott – Peripheral

All thes...

Sliding Doors

Fran Mitchell
Posted 07/07/2020

I've just seen that Ralf Rangnick has been appointed as AC Milan's new manager, and it made me remember when he was interviewed for the Everton job in 2013, but how we elected for Roberto Martinez.

At that time, he was an experienced coach f...
