Blues play Czech outfit in first friendly

15 July  24 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton's first warm-up game of the summer will take place tomorrow afternoon against FK Jablonec of the Czech Republic.

It will be the first friendly under the new Ronald Koeman regime and it will give the new boss a chance to further assess those players who have joined the training camp in Austria thus far.

The match will be a behind-closed-doors affair at Sportplatz Golm, near the Blues' current base in Schurn, Austria that kicks off at 1pm but ESPN subscribers in the United States can stream it live on ESPN3 or the WatchESPN app starting at 4:55am PDT/7:55am EDT.

I don't think the manager will draw too many conclusions from this one-off game. The players involved will most likely be selfish, nervous and full of errors trying to impress. I suppose the only thing to look out for is the attitude – those willing to listen.

I see it as a fresh start, the players will be up for it in the real sense. They're gonna work for each other. Give it all, blue boys. :D COYB!

I also sense a new start, Minik.

A new beginning, a new glorious era

I see 100% effort from all, a real team spirit.

A new manager, a new start – a team and a club transformed.

Our players becoming... TIGERS!

The spirit of our past greats will be summoned to imbue our lads with steel.

The spirits of our late greats will guide our boys from the heavens.

We will be reborn, we will be... unstoppable.

So who's all missing for today then? Stones, Barkley, Lukaku, McCarthy, Funes Mori, Coleman?

With no Pienaar, Osman or Hibbert anymore, then it'll be a chance for the kids to step up and stake a claim.

I'm just fascinated to see what transpires beginning today. Won't be reading bugger all into anything, I just want to watch Everton play. (It's seems a very long time since I felt so keen.)

I'll be (hopefully) watching via Mobdro addon to Firestick. (If anyone wants a walkthrough on how to do this..... Hit me up, only to happy to share. All you need is decent wifi an Amazon Firestick and an Android phone. Takes about 10 mins.)

Should be on here as well:

Thomas (#12) – probably safe to add sicknote Gibson to your list of potential absentees!

Tony (#13) - got Mobdro on my tablet. Which station is showing match?

Martin @16.

Not certain at the moment but Derek @7 says BeIN1 are covering it. Normally, I checkout (aka Iraqi Goals) lists, without actually using their streams (far too many popups).

The other route is to load Kodi and use either TurkTv or Phoenix. But Mobdro is much less hassle. Eplsite IS listing our game today, so there must be availability.

So I take it is 2pm CET?
Tony Draper
19 Posted 16/07/2016 at 12:22:08
Yes John @18.
Skysports lists the KO as 1:00pm (BST) so that's 2:00pm CET.

Disturbingly, they also list the venue as Sportplatz Golm.

Golum! Just no shaking that dreary fucker off!

#3 Rugene, I meant it, a fresh start for the bright future. The catalyst we've been waiting for. Optimism is the way, I've been tired of negative posters, fortunately now is a different time. COYB.

Davies playing Right Back?
John Louis Jones
27 Posted 16/07/2016 at 13:14:07
Davies, Holgate, Galloway, Baines
Besic, Gibson
Dowell, Mirallas, Lennon

That is the team.

Quite right John! Apologies. Niasse dropped!

Holgate is a big lad, isn't he.

I am guessing we will be seeing the evidence of the Koeman revolution in the second half. Looking for the positives, so I will say I am enjoying the Dutch commentary so far...

Niasse is the worst footballer I have ever seen.
