Can England win the World Cup?

Andy Crooks
Posted 27/06/2018

The United Kingdom will never win the Eurovision song contest again. It is out of our hands and sadly, no matter how talented our entry, and I think you will agree that we have entered some belters recently, politics just ruin it for us.However, t...

Royal Blue Mersey

Alan Bodell
Posted 15/06/2018

I've been singing this since I first went to the game in the 1960s. I'd love to know who penned this masterpiece that is ours and ours alone and has stayed the course and will forever, I'm sure. 'Oh, we hate Bill Shankly and we hate St John, but ...

A Bigger Job Than We Think

Alasdair Mackay
Posted 10/06/2018

Like every Evertonian, I have been doing my research on Marco Silva since the day we appointed him as first team Manager (or Head Coach). That includes his preferred style of play (which has been well documented) and the types of players he likes to ...

Man Utd 4 - 4 Everton

Andy Crooks
Posted 09/06/2018

I watched that game again last night (drink was taken) It was at a time when I was calling for Moyes to go. We were good, really good. Fellaini was magnificent. We went 4-2 down and tried to win. It was a brilliant performance from a team that d...

The Young Ones...

Fran Mitchell
Posted 25/05/2018

Close season means we all start playing Fantasy Football in our head, in forums and in the pub. Who to buy, who to sell, and so on. However, I wonder who do people expect to come through from our Under-23s or ...

Everton are in the market for an attacking playmaker – Who could we sign?

Gary McCarty
Posted 21/05/2018

With Wayne Rooney following the natural progression of past-their-prime footballers and looking to join the MLS, Everton may be...

The exuberance of youth

Andrew Bentley
Posted 17/05/2018

After the dust has settled on what has been an important few days in Everton's history — finally getting rid of Sam Allardyce from our club — we as Evertonians have the opportunity to look forward with optimism about our future under a new man...

Tosun in 'interesting' company...

Kevin O'Regan
Posted 15/05/2018

I see both Arsenals Özil and Man City's Gündogan are in trouble here in Germany for posing with the Turkish President Erdogan. But our newest recruit, Cenk Tosun, was also seen posing with the politician whom some see as a dictator – who doesn't ...

A Good Move?

Maurice Reid
Posted 13/05/2018

I hope all the fans of the proposed new Everton stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock read Arsene Wenger's words in The Guardian yesterday: "Highbury had a special spirit. The Emirates was like buying a new house, it took us a while to feel at hom...

The clear-out: easier said than done

Fran Mitchell
Posted 09/05/2018

It has been mentioned many a time this season how our squad is unbalanced, poor in quality and in need of a complete rebuild. This however is easier said than done, a complete clear-out can have many a negative impact: need to sign too many...

He who dares...

Darren Hind
Posted 30/04/2018

The long debate over whether Sam Allardyce should be removed from his post or not seemed dead and buried when a recent ToffeeWeb poll revealed that up to 95% of those who voted wanted him gone. There was no way back, at least that's how it seemed. He...

Mo painting borough red

Anton Walsh
Posted 28/04/2018

Our own Mo Besic is doing the business at Middlesbrough and they love him. Another Man of the Match award today. He should be doing it for us. A combination of very bad luck and not enough faith in him has left him out-cast. At least his game time...

Wenger the Great!

Kevin Tully
Posted 26/04/2018

Incredibly, Pep Guardiola has spent more money in 21 months at Manchester City than Arsene Wenger has in 21 years at Arsenal. Whilst clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United were spending hundreds of millions, Wenger was competing, and often out-p...

Some home-grown left-backs Everton must go after this summer

Gary McCarty
Posted 24/04/2018

A great multitude of people who follow Everton regularly believe that the Blues should now start thinking about finding a replacement for Leighton Baines. Ever since Ba...

Death to Bullshit

Lyndon Lloyd
Posted 19/04/2018

A few years ago, a colleague of mine — I’m in the Web design industry, I’ve seen him speak at conferences, follow him on Twitter… we’re colleagues, alright?! — coined a phrase that I come back to time and time again: “...

Change. From top to bottom

Mike Stanley
Posted 18/04/2018

I have been watching Everton for 20 years now. I have seen some decent football being played on Goodison Park. I have seen some poor and average games, home and away. But I don't think I have ever seen as season as pathetic as this one. This season, ...

Style over substance? Everton must be careful what they wish for

Gary McCarty
Posted 25/04/2018

It's fair to say that the 2017-18 season won't be looked back on with much fondness by Everton supporters.The Toffees spent almost £150 million in last summer's transfer window under former boss Ronald Koeman, but most of those signings ha...

Closing Down Sale. Everything Must Go!

Scott Hall
Posted 16/04/2018

The current Everton squad is arguably the most unbalanced group of individuals in the club's famous history. With major trading work required this summer in order to bring some form of equilibrium back to the team, who would the Everton fans keep and...

Where did it all go wrong?

Dave Newton
Posted 13/04/2018

It’s a pity last weekend’s derby wasn’t played on the Friday night. If it was, it would have been 4 years to the very day since Martinez’s dynamic Everton side demolished Arsenal 3-0 to overtake them in the Champions League places....

Ramiro Funes Mori and The Falklands

Paul Kelly
Posted 04/04/2018

Cast your mind back to Ramires Funes Mori's red card at Mordor, for his slightly high, missed-timed, ill-judged tackle that warranted a (talking to, not a) red card at our usual surrender at Anfield. Picture him, walking off, winding up our...
