“Our Rightful Place”

Lyndon Lloyd
03/05/2018

No club is ordained to be ever-successful but there is a strong case to be made for one club’s place at the proverbial “top table” of English football being “rightful” and that is Everton. We need not be apologetic about demanding we get back there or be hesitant in trying.

The Waiting Game

Lyndon Lloyd
27/04/2018

If the various rumours and tabloid website reports are correct, Sam Allardyce travelled to London yesterday looking for assurances over his future but was left largely in continuing limbo.

Lyndon Lloyd

Kicking the Can Down the Road

Paul The Esk
19/04/2018

Something to Believe In

Lyndon Lloyd

Rob Sawyer
25/03/2018

Best of the Rest?

Everton need Lookman more than Ademola needs a loan move

Lyndon Lloyd
25/01/2018

Amid suggestions that Ademola Lookman could be sent out on loan, surely there's a better argument for using him judiciously in a Blues' first team that badly needs his precocious talents.

Money for Nothing

Rodger Armstrong
22/01/2018

Time for Moshiri to lead, to act and to affect wholesale change across the entire staff of the Club. The fans may put up with money for nothing in the short term because it’s in our blood; but don’t abuse that love, that trust.

Lyndon Lloyd
18/01/2018

Sam Allardyce's unexpectedly rosey honeymoon period offered the journeyman boss an opportunity to reboot and begin re-building for Everton's future. Instead, his joyless, defensive approach has favoured ageing players without achieving positive results.

Farewell to the Flawed Diamond

Lyndon Lloyd

Gary McCarty
13/12/2017

There is a certain type of football that Sam Allardyce like his team to play and it makes for one of the most boring spectaculars. These tactics work well enough to secure a team's future in the EPL but it comes at great cost to the fans who have to watch it every week.

Lyndon Lloyd
29/11/2017

Reality bites hard as Unsworth's audition turns sour

Lyndon Lloyd
30/10/2017

After the so-nearly response at Stamford Bridge, there was hope and encouragement. Following this 2-0 defeat at the King Power Stadium, Evertonians will be feeling mostly despair as the extent of the mess that their club finds itself in 10 games into the 2017-18 season is laid bare.

Lyndon Lloyd
22/10/2017

Lyndon Lloyd
02/10/2017

By being the first man to captain both Everton Football Club and their local rivals Liverpool, Andrew Hannah holds a unique position in Merseyside folklore.

Dismal showing limits Chelsea to two easy goals

Michael Kenrick
27/08/2017

Everton tried to keep it tight, and gave up two goals in an abysmal first period.

Everton left chasing shadows in familiar Stamford Bridge defeat

Lyndon Lloyd
27/08/2017

With just six shots on target in the opening three games, the problems that were laid bare today can’t be explained away by mere fatigue alone, even if it was undoubtedly a factor for those who did play in all three matches in just six days. The same nagging deficiencies remain despite massive expenditure on upgrading the team.

Opposition View: Q&A with Chelsea HQ

ToffeeWeb 
26/08/2017

Ahead of Sunday's trip to Stamford Bridge, we spoke with Chelsea HQ to get their angle on a fixture that has provided plenty of drama in recent years but which Everton haven't won since 1994.

Everton FC injury data

ToffeeWeb 
26/08/2017

As with all Premier League clubs, injuries are an ongoing concern for Everton but there are no good resources that show the actual impact that injuries to certain players have on our season. We’ve teamed up with CL Legal, who have tracked all the injuries to Everton players over the past eight seasons which actually forced the player to miss games.

Calvert-Lewin comes of age but Everton are denied a stirring victory

Lyndon Lloyd
22/08/2017

It’s a shame that Dominic Calvert-Lewin's impressive assist for Wayne Rooney in the 35th-minute of this early-season tussle between Manchester and Merseyside at the Etihad didn’t end up serving up a precious winner.

Everton surrender two points to City ferocity

Michael Kenrick
21/08/2017

Wayne Rooney scores his 200th Premier League goal and celebrates in fine style at The Etihad, where City are down to 10 men.

The Long-Awaited 'No.10'?

Lyndon Lloyd
17/08/2017

Gylfi Sigurdsson's arrival doesn't necessarily mean an end to Evertonian longing for the No.10 slot to be filled but he potentially has the talent to operate as the all-important central position behind the striker(s).

Rooney leads the way in rare opening-day win

Lyndon Lloyd
13/08/2017

The Prodigal Son brought all his experience to bear against Stoke, scoring the winner and helping Everton dictate much of the second half to hold on for a 1-0 victory.

Fine Rooney goal elevates dour encounter

Michael Kenrick
12/08/2017

A dreadful half turned on its head with a lovely move, great cross and fine header from Wayne Rooney before the break.

Giant Leap Or Just Forward Steps?

Lyndon Lloyd
10/08/2017

With a newly reinforced spine, Everton look as though they could be a stronger outfit than last season, even without the departed Lukaku. Is it enough, however, to crack the top six or four?

'Jack O’ Both Sides' – The Life and Times of Jack Sharp (1878-1938)

Rob Sawyer
31/07/2017

Jack Sharp sits in exalted company as one of England’s few dual cricket and football internationals. To Evertonians he is much more than that – an iconic player, captain, FA Cup winner, club director and founder of Liverpool’s best known sports outfitters.

Diamonds aren’t forever: Koeman confirms Barkley will leave Everton “100%”

Chris Smith
27/07/2017

On the cusp of a major leap forward for Everton, Ross Barkley, the diamond of the club’s academy, has decided to jump ship. It’s a sad day for many Evertonians; an indifferent day for many others.

Confessions of an Evertonian

Dave  Wraggs
04/03/2018

It’s time to hold my hands up. I unashamedly supported the appointment of Sam Allardyce as our Manager. I was even prepared to see how this season went with a view to retaining him.

The Case for Koeman, M'Lord

David Cooper
30/09/2017

I think Koeman is the "fall guy" for those who are pulling the strings – mostly Bill Kenwright but Farhad Moshiri cannot be exempt from blame.

Everton's lost identity

Paul Derby
05/03/2018

What happens on the pitch matters most of all so there is an important question the club needs to address before making its next managerial appointment – what is our identity? In other words, how do we want to play? What should an Everton team be all about?

Are you (allowed to be) entertained?

Paul Traill
06/05/2018

Let’s draw a line under this season and go again next season with a new, better, manager. A big breath of fresh air is needed. There’s a lot of cobwebs to blow out of the club.

Koeman's Legacy Will Damage Us For a Long Time

Steve Hogan
24/11/2017

History will show that Ronald Koeman was an absolute disaster for Everton, and that, conservatively, he's probably put the club back at least two years

The board have a big decision to make

Paul Traill
01/10/2017

The talk on everyone’s lips after the game of course was, should Ronald Koeman be sacked. It’s safe to say, most of the supporters seem to think so. Personally, I’m pretty neutral.

Favourites aren't always the best, Part 1

John McFarlane, Sr

It’s a mess alright, and I can’t wait for this season to end...

Giving Up On the Premier League

Simon Kenneally
20/01/2018

The Premier League title is ultimately decided these days by how the top 6 teams perform against each other. And that position will continue to be entrenched. So, what is the future for Everton? I'm genuinely interested in what it is the best Evertonians really hope for any more.

Time for a big reality check

Laurie Hartley

The case for appointing Sam Allardyce, a manager who has seen it all and done a lot of it in the Premier League for many years

Poor Business = Poor Football

Mike Fisher
03/10/2017

Business is about confidence and we have none that I can see. To all concerned: please start living up to the high expectations of your loyal fans and stop the nonsense before it is too late.

Allardyce – Not Mentally Up To It

Ian Burns
21/01/2018

The point of this article is in response to the two threads this weekend. One with regards to Allardyce blaming the players' mentality for yet another miserable performance on Saturday against west Brom.

One foot in the group stage

Paul Traill
18/08/2017

With four clean sheets in four games, it’s hard to complain. I’ll be interested to see where we stand in a month’s time.

We've never had it so... bad?

David Booth
12/05/2018

Apart from a freak 4-0 win against Manchester City last season and November's 4-0 victory against West Ham, can any of you truthfully remember any other notable game in the whole of the last two seasons?

Big Sam's eight game job interview

Paul Traill
11/03/2018

We still have an opportunity to look up rather than down this season. If, and it’s a ginormous if, we can go unbeaten in these games and win the majority of them, this gives us quite a platform and good momentum going into pre-season. This then makes it difficult to move Sam Allardyce on.

Disjointed Blues like a flashback to the Smith era

Jon Sellick
06/10/2017

Add everything up and, under Koeman, it seems to total something nearing what my Grandad, who rarely wasted words, used to say during matches in the Smith era: a “load of shite”.

Well, this all feels very Everton doesn’t it?

Tom Daly
22/01/2018

We have an unbalanced squad with a risk averse manager and a hierarchy that haven’t covered themselves in glory over the past couple of years. At the moment, there aren’t a huge number of reasons to be positive. This coming summer will be no more important than any other in terms of the development of the club.

To manage, or not to manage, that is the question.

Don Alexander
11/03/2018

The club since Mr Moshiri effectively took over has been an object lesson in the mis-management of people.

Koeman or Walsh, the confusion over who signs whom

Clive Rogers
08/10/2017

Does the director-of-football model cause more problems than it solves?

When “Legends” Were Thin on the Ground – Part 1

John McFarlane [Senior]
14/05/2018

A brief introduction to the 48 players who represented Everton between the resumption of the Football League in 1946 and the Toffees' relegation in 1951, starting with the first six in alphabetical order.

4-3-2-1? Just Say No!

David Hallwood
08/10/2017

Koeman comes across as a stubborn man, but surely he’s not stupid; he must change. It must change or the club will change him.

The Key Steps

Mike Oates
14/05/2018

With Sam Allardyce leaving, it's for Farhad Moshiri to put the necessary pieces in place from the top down to deliver success to Everton

Playing Devil's Advocate

Paul Traill
30/11/2017

Why the sudden upturn in performance? Has David Unsworth finally found his best team, albeit too late? Has the penny finally dropped what is required for the players? Or, is this simply the reaction to a new manager coming in?

Dyceball

Andre James
25/01/2018

Always an avid fan of all sports, I got on the train at Euston to head North last Saturday ready to watch my first match of Dyceball.

The Glorious Revolution

Adam McCulloch
17/05/2018

As the second attempt at a Dutch revolution at Everton, Marcel Brands promises to bring a slicker Continental approach to a Director of Football role that failed to function as billed under his predecessor.

Slalom at Stoke

Andre James
17/03/2018

The game was end to end early on and the home fans made it clear they disliked Davies and Rooney, the former who was really out of sorts, going down on several occasions before he was subbed in the second half.

From threatening Europe to Big Sam’s desperate rehabilitation: what went wrong?

Mike Kehoe
28/01/2018

I am genuinely confused about how we have transformed from a successful powerful club on the verge of challenging the European elites into a shambolic enterprise that turns to Sam Allardyce for salvation.

My disdain for Wayne on the wane

David Booth
07/07/2017

It is looking increasingly like a done deal, but I really do not want him back. Here are not one but 15 reasons why we should not even be considering his return.

In Defence of Koeman

Dave Cooney
28/08/2017

Koeman seems to be implementing a plan – focus on getting the defence sorted out first and then improve the attacking side of our game – but it takes time

What does Walsh do?

Paul Ferry
28/08/2017

What does Steve Walsh do, what has he done this window, what is he doing today, what was the Italian jaunt for?

Giving something back

Paul Traill
08/12/2017

What a tremendous trip. I enjoyed every minute. Great company with Gaz and Dan, and it was superb to meet so many other Blues who had travelled from afar, most notably John and Stretch.

Financing Everton's New Stadium

Richard Knights
30/01/2018

Liverpool City Council is proposing to loan Everton Football Club £280 million towards the £500 million it will cost to build a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.

Transfer Targets

Sam Hoare
21/05/2018

"Time for my annual transfer piece. Look away now all those who roll their eyes at such speculative ‘football manager’ nonsense. Those who devour every piece of tabloid garbage, then look up the player and their stats and their videos; come on in."

A Case for the Defence – Looking Back to Move Forward

Mark Wild
21/05/2018

"I believe in Evertonians. The passion and commitment is undoubtable and there is no shortage of opinion; but can we turn that enthusiasm and desire into something that will help us move the club forward?"

Trip to Cyprus

Rob Halligan
09/12/2017

I've read Paul Traill's excellent report on his trip to Cyprus, but I thought I would give a report on my own experiences.

For how long does this go on?

Paul Traill
20/10/2017

I’m not one for sacking managers quickly. I like to see managers given the opportunity to build a team. It hasn’t been our style and I want to believe it can work under Ronald Koeman. That said, the pressure is on, and failure to beat Arsenal, a Carabao Cup exit at Chelsea, and defeat at Leicester City would pretty much make his position untenable.

Win relief

Paul Traill
01/02/2018

Eventually we were able to see the game out and claim a vital, and ultimately deserved three points. Though we were up against it in the final 20 minutes, for the best part of an hour of this game we were the better team.

Reinflate the ball sack, rookie

John Daley
23/05/2018

"This is just meant as a one off as I've spent the day utterly bored got a bee in my bonnet about something Everton related. Who else am I going to bang on about it to?"

Squad Analysis: Are we ready?

Fran Mitchell
10/07/2017

Often we talk about what we need and first IXs, but football is a squad game nowadays, and hopefully this season will see us challenge for the top-4, while also making serious tilts to the 3 cup competitions. How is our squad prepared for this challenge?

Stick or Twist

Mike Fisher
20/10/2017

Is it really that simple to put this down to stick with Koeman or twist and find someone new? Interesting to read forums and see the mixed opinions of those who feel Koeman's time is done and those prepared to stick a little longer.

Allardyce interview fail

Paul Traill
31/03/2018

Sam has now failed in his job interview for me, with the only hope of resurrection being an emphatic hammering of Liverpool next weekend, but we all know that won’t happen.

An Open Letter to Mr Kenwright

Ian Burns
04/02/2018

I am writing this post on a Sunday morning after the 5-1 defeat at Arsenal and I am sitting here with a cup of tea wondering how many weekends have been ruined since your Chairmanship started at Everton.

Favourites aren't always the best, Part 4

John  McFarlane Snr
16/12/2017

My selection for the right-half position in my "Favourite Team" is Peter Farrell. I have no standout memory of Peter other than that momentous night in Oldham, when Everton won promotion in 1954. What I can remember is, an inspirational captain who always gave 100% for the cause.

Assessing the squad and our options

Steve Ferns
06/09/2017

Now the transfer window has shut and the dust has settled, somewhat, it is time to focus on things as they are and look at the season ahead.

Recruitment Blues

Sam Hoare
06/02/2018

A closer look at the players we have bought in over the last couple of years, especially the ones we have paid decent money for, and maybe even consider one or two alternatives that we might have opted for.

Why can't we ever just do it?

Paul Traill
08/04/2018

Whatever the reason, I wish that for once we’d just do it. Missing sitters in the last few minutes of a derby against under-strength Liverpool – we won’t get many better opportunities than that!

West Country Blues

Dave Williams
07/02/2018

What can make a 550-mile round trip to Goodison worthwhile for a long-time Blue? Some simple entertainment, some goals and an Everton win, of course!

From My Seat: Tottenham Hotspur (H)

Ken Buckley
09/09/2017

Overall a very frustrating day. Time for manager and players to stand up and get themselves welded into a coherent team.

Favourites aren't always the best, Part 10

John McFarlane
08/02/2018

Continuing the theme of my favourite players, my selection for inside left is Roy Vernon.

Almost a Christmas miracle

Paul Traill
24/12/2017

A resilient effort from Everton and if you cast your mind back a month to that wretched performance versus Southampton, you would never in your wildest of dreams have us walking away from a draw with the champions a little miffed that we didn’t have more of a go at them.

Grand Old Team to Support?

Lawrence Green
14/04/2018

As this horrible season comes to a close and with Everton set to play it's 1000th Premier League game at West Ham in May, it is as good a time as any to assess where we are as a football club and what direction we may take in the coming years.

Luckily we didn't book our trip to the Netherlands for Everton's game-that-wasn't against Groningen and so, when the game against Genk was announced, Gaz and I were able to book some flights to Brussels Charleroi.

Mission Creep – From Top Six to Forty Points

Dave Wraggs
31/10/2017

It is often said that our off-field leadership leaves a lot to be desired, but now, more than ever, that leadership needs to show a level of decisiveness that has previously been conspicuous in its absence. This one’s yours, Farhad. Our future depends on it.

Trip to Atalanta

Rob Halligan
15/09/2017

Following on from my thread about our trip to Croatia, I thought I would give a report on our trip to Atalanta, not giving any opinion on the match itself as we all know what a crock of shit that was.

The Second Year of the Project

Steve Ferns
25/07/2017

Koeman’s project is not clearly defined. We assume it’s about winning something, but really it is just another way of saying we will pay him a lot of money to achieve a goal, and that goal appears to be Champions League football.

Can you remember who scored goals before Lukaku?

David Cooper
01/11/2017

I know my memory is fading fast, but I had to look up the results and stats of seasons before Lukaku started his journey to becoming a goal scoring power house.

Something had better change

Darren Hind
28/12/2017

We are not facing a relegation fight; we will not qualify for Champions League football, and we will not win the FA Cup playing like this, so why on earth do we play the way we do?

Time for Koeman to follow De Boer out of the door?

David Booth
17/09/2017

This is no Kendall-esque evolution and it cannot be allowed to continue. Time for Ronald to shape up, or be shipped out.

The Geriatric Ward

A few weeks ago my Dad, a true Blue of '95, was recovering from illness in the geriatric ward at one of our hospitals...

Trip to Lyon

Rob Halligan
03/11/2017

So the trip to the third largest city in France panned out pretty much as we all expected it to.

The Clock is Ticking

Dave Wraggs
17/09/2017

Much of the criticism aimed at Ronald Koeman over the past few weeks has centred on his perceived negativity and intransigence in terms of sticking with the same slow possession-based football that fails to yield any real attacking threat and is a throwback to the Martinezesque style of a few seasons ago, but without the odd gung-ho attacking foray.

Please just go now, Sam Allardyce

Michael Denson
20/04/2018

Congrats, Sam — you have killed our enjoyment of Football. You have killed our hope, our ambition, our pride. The restoration of these cannot begin until you have gone.

Favourites aren't always the best part 11

John McFarlane [Senior]

Time to return to the present, and to continue the theme of my favourite players. My choice for the outside left position is Tommy Eglington.

Sausage Party!

Paul Traill
06/11/2017

A splendid day out at the game. Them fun days only ever happen about once or twice a season so I was glad to make the most of it, even if I paid for it a bit in work today.

Second best

Paul Traill
01/01/2018

Relegation is not a threat, but surely the plan has to be to attack better than that?

Cambridge University Nil Satis Federation

Dave Rusk
29/07/2017

The organization was formed on a train journey from Birmingham to Cambridge – after a football tournament. The name NSF was agreed – slight reference to NLF – National Liberation Front – from the Vietnam War. I don’t recall that we ever added the CU in our day. Meetings were then held in Trinity College bar and were surprisingly formal – minutes from the previous meeting, motions passed etc.

The Honeymoon Is Over – But No Need to Panic

Steve Ferns
02/01/2018

Allardyce is what he is. A discussion of where Everton are under the new manager.

The Madness must End!

Jim Wilson
09/11/2017

Since Bill Kenwright took over, we have had nothing but at best a frustrating time. Every managerial appointment has been sub-standard and possibly worse each time. And I haven't forgotten our two or three skirmishes with relegation under Moyes and all the depressing Anfield defeats, other hammerings and abysmal cup exits.

Surely this can be handled better?

Paul Traill
24/04/2018

Everybody knows Sam Allardyce will be leaving at the end of the season. We know it, the players know it, Moshiri knows it, Sam knows it. This doesn’t stop the circus continuing on into town though and we remain a laughing stock.

The Everton Manager's Job Description

David Johson
10/11/2017

Although we can never really know what is discussed behind closed doors, it seems to me that the last three managerial appointments have all been a good fit for the job description as it stood at that moment in time.

Everton: Still a sell-to-buy club?

David Booth
02/08/2017

Despite the fact that we got a lot of our transfer business done amazingly early, any optimism that was generated is now dissipating and it looks as though we are in danger of leaving things too late... yet again.

Everton: Rebooting the Project with a new manager

Steve Ferns
25/04/2018

Assuming I’m the new manager, I have convinced Moshiri to give me the job, and in doing so I promised I did not need more than £50m transfer kitty.

From My Seat: Bournemouth (H)

Ken Buckley
23/09/2017

All in all a good day out. A win which was vital in terms of confidence. Niasse comes in from the cold. Will Big Ron apologise for his treatment of the lad? He should.

Favourites aren't always the best – Part 12

John McFarlane [Senior]
26/04/2018

The 1960-61 season saw Everton finishing in 5th position, and playing the best football that we of that generation had witnessed. Johnny Carey had lain the foundations of a highly attractive and effective team and Harry Catterick, with a couple of adjustments, led them to the League title in 1962-63.

Niasse brace gets Koeman out of jail

Paul Traill
24/09/2017

Win we did. It still wasn't especially pretty up until the winning goal just five minutes later, but we persevered

Not Good Enough!

Mike Fisher
25/02/2018

Staying up is not good enough if the heartbeat of your club gives you no reason to think that it will get better next season without a radical rethink and restructure throughout the club.

Karma Never Comes

Jay Wood
06/01/2018

Everton last beat Liverpool at Anfield back in 1999. In fact, with the FA Cup 3rd Round loss at Anfield, the dismal record is 16 games without a single win against them.

Everton 2018-19

Alasdair Mackay
15/11/2017

It might all seem like we are in the midst of a stark winter, but one or two rose-buds are already showing, and spring is around the corner

To the end & beyond...

Gareth Clark
28/04/2018

Between now and the end of the season, there is little to play for so, the likes of Klaassen, Vlasic, Funes Mori and Niasse should be given a chance. Beyond the end of the season, it is difficult to know what we need in terms of transfers in and out for next season.

Will finishing well mean starting well?

Paul Traill
29/04/2018

We're experiencing a strange end to a difficult season. It's great to see us finish strongly. In any other season, such a strong finish could be a very good catalyst to hit the ground running with pre-season and start the next season well...

Crisis of confidence

Paul Traill
19/11/2017

We just don't have the confidence currently. I believe the players are good enough but it'll take a bit longer yet until we get any sort of swagger back. Players just don't look for the ball enough. Too many hide and there's a real lack of responsibility on the field.

The day Wally signed for me

John McFarlane [Senior]
20/11/2017

A fan reminisces his childhood devotion to Wally Fielding who represented Everton for over a decade between 1946 and 1958

It was just so Everton

Paul Traill
29/09/2017

The Europa League campaign doesn’t have to be doom and gloom just yet but we are certainly doing it the hard way.

The Bard and the Blues

Kevin Crean
22/11/2017

Unsworth deserves his chance. Will he be the one to deliver us, in keeping with heroes in the great bard’s rousingly penned victories? Will he make sure, eventually, that all’s well that ends well?

The Missing Left

Mark Dunford
15/01/2018

There is a missing left side to the squad and the worry is that the erratic Moshiri may be unwilling to rebuild this.

Welcome home, Wayne

Paul Traill

Paul Traill
24/11/2017

The game meant nothing. The team talk on the face of it should have been a piece of piss. “Right you lot, here’s your opportunity. Prove to me why you should be in the team”. Unfortunately the majority out there only really proved why they shouldn’t be in the team.

A Never-Ending Nightmare
