Everton's End-of-Season Awards

Thursday 12 April 2018  79 Comments  [Jump to last]

Everton's end-of-season awards awards ceremony will be held for the second year in Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall, on Tuesday 1 May. Supporters can vote for their top three nominations for the 2017-18 Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season and Goal of the Season prizes.

Evertonians can place their votes now by visiting evertonfc.com/dixies [Link Fixed] and can order tickets for the two-hour awards show from the Philharmonic Box Office. Other awards presented include the Players' Player of the Season, Ladies Player of the Season and Under-23 Player of the Season.

The Chairman's Blueblood Award — bestowed to someone who “embodies the Evertonian spirit” — will also be presented along with the Howard Kendall Award, which recognises an outstanding achievement at the Club.

The Fan of the Year prize will also be awarded, while a former player will be inducted into the Club's Hall of Fame and named as the latest Everton Giant. Fans will be joined on the evening by a number of Blues legends, as well as Everton manager, Sam Allardyce, and his entire first-team squad.

Tickets to the event start at £18 in the Rear Circle and rise to £24 in the Upper Circle, £48 in the Grand Circle and £75 for seats in the Stalls. The dress code for supporters seated in the stalls and private boxes is formal.

Great news that the awards are coming imminently. That means this dog shit season is nearly over. Pickford for all the awards, end of.

Nightmare. Next thing you know, we'll be having a Staying Up party.

The page for ordering tickets for the event can.

Typical Everton.

Like rubbing our noses in it...

I have voted for:

1) Morgan Schneiderlin
2) Marten Stekelenburg
3) Enigma Mangala

Shit, I can't even remember his first name!

I guess damned if they do damned if they don’t. But nothing about this season has been exceptional, as such, what’s the point?

A load of fans turning up and keeping their mouths shut on a horror show of a season, despite feelings to the contrary.

Players who have barely managed a passable standard sheepishly picking up an award?

Making small talk with a team and manager they’ve snarled at all year?

Will Allardyce have a bodyguard, would hope so.

Just a bad idea.

Brent Stephens

My vote would go to the goal post as our best defender.

David Barks

There is clearly one worthy of an award, and that man is: Sandro. Name another Everton player to feature in the Champions League... ya can't. Oh damn, maybe Tosun did. Hmmm.

Surely Allardyce will be gone by 1st May!!
Sandra Williams
11 Posted 12/04/2018 at 17:18:11
The 'Fan of the Year' should go to ALL us long-suffering Blues for having to witness such a hideous season, and all of us who have already renewed season tickets for more misery! And to every family member (including cats, dogs, goldfish etc) who have had to put up with our bad moods and bad language. (Sorry Mum!!)
Steve Hogan
12 Posted 12/04/2018 at 17:21:22
Honestly...just how out of touch can a club possibly be to even think about holding an awards night after such a dreadful season?

And to think, some 'mugs' will pay £75.00 for a two hour 'club sponsored' whitewash by some meaningful lackeys who will no doubt be telling us that the future is bright. I guess the main benefactor once more will be the EitC charity who are in danger of becoming better known than the actual football club.

Well done, Denise, you are fast becoming more influential than Moshiri in the boardroom.

You couldn't make it up.

John Pierce
13 Posted 12/04/2018 at 17:21:56
Dave, I thought that’s how much they pay us to attend?!

I wonder if Allardyce will have the tables organized defensively?

You’d think gravy must be on the menu?

Maybe sour grapes too?

Brent #6, I like it.
Christy Ring
15 Posted 12/04/2018 at 17:45:33
Tough one, too close to call between Williams and Schneiderlin. The only award should be given to Pickford.
Brian Harrison
16 Posted 12/04/2018 at 17:52:45
Awards night... well, there can be only one award that is to the long-suffering fans.

Seeing as we are always being told the money from fans attending is small beer, maybe Moshiri can announce that all those who have renewed their season tickets for next season will have their money refunded? Now wouldnt that be a statement to the loyal fans who have paid their money despite 95% despising the current manager.

I dream of course so, instead of and awards night, rename it "Welcome to the pit of misery," dilly, dilly.

Awards for what?
Amit Vithlani
18 Posted 12/04/2018 at 17:58:20
My vote goes to Boaty McBoatface.

James Flynn
19 Posted 12/04/2018 at 18:34:14
I have one I think legit:

Chairman's Blueblood Award — bestowed to someone who “embodies the Evertonian spirit”

Seamus Cleman's return against Leicester. Still sprinting up that flank in the 90th minute.

Jeff Spiers

Geoff Lambert
21 Posted 12/04/2018 at 18:35:11
Pickford; and young Jonjoe was okay when he was chucked in the deep end.
Dermot Byrne
22 Posted 12/04/2018 at 18:35:26
Schneiderlin for all categories including manager seeing how often he plays!
Alex Bennett
23 Posted 12/04/2018 at 18:38:04
Rooney’s halfway line goal. The other two awards who knows? who cares?!
Dave Abrahams
24 Posted 12/04/2018 at 18:46:26
James. (#19) Nah, I think he wasted the final pass!!!
Tony Everan
25 Posted 12/04/2018 at 18:46:34
A complete load of bollocks unless the proceeds are going to a worthy cause.

Pickford has done well;

Davies has done well considering he is a boy still;

Calvert-Lewin has done well holding the fort

Kenny has done well when called upon;

Holgate has done well filling in;

Baningime has done okay in his small contribution;

Seamus has done well to come back very strong from a bad injury.

Maybe it's not bollocks, there is a theme... The young lads have done the club proud and Seamus is a fine example to them. Give them all a gong and give the proceeds to Alder Hey.

Trevor Peers
26 Posted 12/04/2018 at 18:46:41
Should be scrapped this season – otherwise, we'll become an even bigger laughing stock.
Eddie Dunn

A night to avoid.
Dermot Byrne
28 Posted 12/04/2018 at 19:07:58
I guess to cancel would mean even those who tried: Pickford, Davies, Gana, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin, Baines, Coleman etc, would be overlooked. (We all have our own list, of course.)

Maybe the omissions may say the most? Some of those I bet we could agree on.

Colin Glassar
29 Posted 12/04/2018 at 19:29:15
My vote goes to the long suffering fans. Everyone else, apart from Pickford, has been a disgrace.
Darren Marsh
30 Posted 12/04/2018 at 20:07:56
If it was free, I wouldn't fucking go.

If it was a vote of who should be fucked off, well, you could name everyone of them barring maybe 5 (at a push).

Barry McNally
31 Posted 12/04/2018 at 20:16:34
Thought they were on in early January!
Tony Graham
32 Posted 12/04/2018 at 20:18:53
I'm with you, Colin @29, the faithful, disbelieving at the rubbish they've witnessed, suffering fans deserve an apology from the club.

To even think of rewarding anybody is not on; cancel this fiasco...

Kim Vivian
33 Posted 12/04/2018 at 20:19:44
I have had to have a nod to Oumar. Gent of the year.
Peter Anthony
34 Posted 12/04/2018 at 20:44:51
'The Dixies'. How ironic. I shudder to think what William Ralph would think of the current custodians of his former team shirt.

It pains me greatly that it is not the talent that is the most obvious difference between us and the red shite. It is the apparent endeavour and pride in the shirt, that is what hurts the most.

How to be proud of a team that seems set up not to lose rather than trying to win.

John Davies
35 Posted 12/04/2018 at 20:46:23
Hope Allardyce has a great night out – anywhere else except this event. Surely he will not be there. WILL HE?

Absolutely an evening to avoid.

Sam gets an MVP from me for saving us this season.
Seriously just give them all to Jordan.

Just great - I can select but it won't let me submit my selection!

Sam has promised the attendees bingo and karaoke plus a plate of chips for £25 per person. All proceeds will be going to the Sam Allardyce Retirement Fund.
Paul Birmingham

A few years ago when BBS was axed, they cancelled the do that was booked for St Georges Hall.

Who knows what the next few weeks will bring, but genuinely it’s celebrating abject mediocrity across the club in the board and on the park at all team levels, personified by the worst season in modern times.

Give the awards to Pickford and JJK, and thats about it, in my opinion and any proceeds to Alder Hey and the homeless charities.

Seeing some of the games last night shows that we are so many light years behind the rest of the pedigree Euro teams..

Onwards and upwards for next season, in my heart, but as it stands I don’t see any changes on the horizon. I hope I'm wrong. Big descisions soon from the board, hopefully.

Michael Kenrick
42 Posted 12/04/2018 at 21:20:58
Sorry, my bad that the link wasn't working... It is fixed now (click above).

There's something about calling them 'The Dixies' that just sticks in my craw... Supposed to be honourific but sounds more horrific, no matter how many times you say it.

Oh, and you have to select 1, 2 and 3 before it will let you submit your vote.

Come on, folks. Let's win it for Schneides!!!

John Pierce
43 Posted 12/04/2018 at 21:46:25
Everton utter failures for even allowing a full selection, for player of the season.

Can't even stage manage the whole thing.

Just to see Williams or No 2 get it and have to cringe with embarrassment would send a message. Pfft!

David Hallwood
44 Posted 12/04/2018 at 22:05:02
Sneiderlain to win the Crustacean category.

The awards should be scrapped and we should just give the players marks out of ten.

Pickford, I'd give him 8
Sigi, I'd give him 5
Rooney, I'd give him 6
Sneiderlin's missus, I'd give her 1.

Apart from that, the sun cream can't come quick enough and summer will be a football-free zone.

Matt Woods
45 Posted 12/04/2018 at 22:30:30
Honestly everyone should vote Sheinderlin. Force the prick up on stage and let him give an acceptance speech!
Brent Stephens
46 Posted 12/04/2018 at 22:39:06
David #44 "Sneiderlin's missus, I'd give her 1".

Very good. Wouldn't we all. Wouldn't we all.

Don Alexander
47 Posted 12/04/2018 at 22:50:23
Is Alex Nyarko the guest of honour?
Gerard Carey
48 Posted 12/04/2018 at 22:55:01
In all honesty, and vote for who!!!???
John Raftery
49 Posted 12/04/2018 at 23:06:21
Michael (#42), I agree with you about 'The Dixies' title. I think William Ralph Dean himself would have hated it.
Don Alexander
50 Posted 12/04/2018 at 23:08:55
Christ John, don't say that to Kenwright or we'll have to endure the awarding of "Bills" instead.
Derek Turner
51 Posted 12/04/2018 at 23:33:29
They must be having a laugh. Worst season for 20 plus years.

Sam fucking Allardyce as manager.

Passionless performances bereft of skill, hard work, shame or indeed any obvious talent from overpaid mercenaries who should be a little embarrassed to even attend, but won't be.

Maybe Oumar for humility, Tom for trying hard, Seamus for being Seamus and Pickford for being the best 50 plus goals let in per season keeper of the year apart from Butland who will start?

Unsworth for manager of the year in an otherwise weakened field.

Schneiderlin for tool of the year, the coveted Golden Nyarko award.

Game of the season, being allowed to fawn at the feet of the awesome gods that are Citeh as they prove that Schneiderlin really is that shit and that they are completely unbeatable home or away, ever, as their dad has more money than ours.

Thanks for the memories lads.

Anthony Murphy
52 Posted 13/04/2018 at 00:08:30
What a crap season eh... hard to take any positives.

My winner for the ‘moment that epitomises the whole fuckin season' award goes to the one when Williams pushed the Lyon keeper and that fella in the Gwladys Street stand tried to punch one of their players whilst holding his kid.

Runner up for the award goes to the FA for the Niasse ban for deceiving the ref.

Awards? You're kidding me right – fucking joke, joke awards, joke fucking club, joke majority owner, joke chairman, joke CEO, an unfunny joke of a manager, and joke players who put in joke effort. The only thing that isn't a joke is the salaries they all take... that's beyond a joke.
Jim Hardin
55 Posted 13/04/2018 at 02:05:15
Most underrated: Martina because he tried, never complained, had no cover in front of or beside him, and did better than just okay at left back, playing out of position.

Most overrated: Tie between Rooney and, well, Rooney.* Wait, I guess that isn't a tie then. Williams and Schneiderlin tied for third (second).

Best Player on Loan: Mirallas, Lookman, Browning – too close to call.

[* Barkley not eligible for awards because he is not on the squad at this time.]

Anyone who attends this needs their heads testing, show your anger with your feet!
Peter Gorman
58 Posted 13/04/2018 at 05:34:03
I am very up for a sarcastic vote but have people really gone for Schneiderlin??

I think Joel Robles Fraser Hornby or Mangala would be as effective; don't particularly want Schneiderlin to walk away with a trophy, as ridiculous as it would be.

Jermaine Jennings

I'm voting for the end of the season can't come quick enough
Keith Harrison
60 Posted 13/04/2018 at 08:17:15
In our own annus horribilis, whether we like it or not, there has still been:

A best player – even if it is just one that is less crap than the rest. Jordan for me.

A best goal – even though they are not what we were set up for. Allardyce believes Rooney's goal was purely down to him in the game against West Ham he says was his first in charge.

A best young player – ditto best player. I would pick Baningime, who has impressed every time I've seen him. Calvert-Lewin is vastly improved, but is not a finisher.

It would be unfair on those players who have tried this season – and there are some – to cancel the awards, and I think the vast majority of the angst on here is actually against Allardyce. In which case boycott them, write to the club, organise protests in the last 2 games, scream Sam out, hire a plane.

Sam dismisses those on here as the half dozen internet complainers who know nothing, but unless something more concrete is brought to Moshiri's attention, I can see the fraud being here next season.

SAM OUT!!! And take Walsh et al with you.

Alex Mullan
61 Posted 13/04/2018 at 09:05:48
As much as a tongue-in-cheek sarcastic vote would be funny, I think we should vote seriously and try and give some credit to the few players who actually didn't fail utterly this season.

The likes of Pickford, Baines – not been his best but he represents the club better than anyone in that team... heck, even Coleman for coming through and showing some pride.

Personally, I'd vote for Pickford because the lad has probably saved us from relegation with some of the saves he's made. He has not been perfect but he's had a great debut season despite being hindered by the plethora of failure around him.

Stephen Driscoll
62 Posted 13/04/2018 at 09:13:12
I hope there's a negligibly small fan turnout, lots of empty spaces, but even that won't speak volumes to our club.
Andy Meighan
63 Posted 13/04/2018 at 09:17:47
What an absolute insult! Awards for what exactly? This being one of the worst seasons in many a long year – and that's saying something.

Keith (#60) – you're probably right: a lot of the angst is aimed at Allardyce but a lot of it is also aimed at Koeman and, to a lesser extent Unsworth, who's also culpable for some of the trash we've had to endure.

My particular ire is reserved for the majority shareholder. I honestly don't think that fella is a full shilling and his moronic statements at the AGM told me everything I need to know about the gormless bastard: Voodoo... Siggy's bullets... our own Fab 4 etc... please!

I think every post on here says it all what we think about this 'event'. If our players had anything about them, they'd boycott this charade. But no, they won't, will they... because it's a freebie.

All this while them across the park are conquering Europe. No wonder they piss down their legs at us – they've every right to. Wait til they get wind of this. Embarrassing.

No! Going to the supporters club evening at Hanger 34 on the 8th... that okay, Dave?
Anthony Hawkins
66 Posted 13/04/2018 at 10:03:22
My votes mostly went to Pickford, Holgate, Niasse and Davies. I purposefully chose Niasse as goal of the season over Rooney's and Sigurdsson's efforts.
Tony Abrahams
67 Posted 13/04/2018 at 10:56:46
If we are to pick an award for Snides, then it should deffo be for the award James mentions @19. Get him the Blueblood award, in honour of our great chairman.

Two phoneys together, both made a fortune out of our club, so let's get them together on the stage!

Dave Abrahams
68 Posted 13/04/2018 at 14:10:25
Paul (34), Hanger 34, very good Paul, is it anywhere near

Victoria Street? I might nip in from Ned Kelly's for half an hour if it is.

Rob Dolby
69 Posted 13/04/2018 at 15:42:34
Looks like Morgan is up for some awards.

2018 Awards as follows:

Club with most Number 10s = Everton
Club with the least amount of left-footed players = Everton
Club with the highest paid manager in world football = Everton 6th and 7th with Koeman and Big Sam
Least motivated player = Schneiderlin then Mirallas
Most motivated player = Niasse
Most step-overs without crossing = Bolase
Least ground covered = Schneiderlin
Most passes backwards = Schneiderlin
Least Passes forward = Schneiderlin
Confusingly gets a shirt every week = Schneiderlin
Getting away with it award = Walsh
Boo boys favorite = 1st Lazy Bastard Schneiderlin, closely followed by "Oh, fuck off, Martina!"
Player of the season = Pickford

James Hughes

I see Everton are up for more awards this year, the shortlist has been announced for the British Comedy Awards.

Worst joke of the Year – Allardyce's appointment
Biggest Clown of the Year – Both Kenwright and Sam made the list
Best Comedic Performance – Moshri for his portrayal of a club owner

Feel free to add your own nomination, it takes about 10 seconds before you put your head in your hands.

Dave Lynch
71 Posted 13/04/2018 at 17:27:12
Lump all the awards together and split 50/50 between Seamus and Jordan.

The rest can walk out the door as far as I'm concerned.

Paul Smith
72 Posted 13/04/2018 at 17:53:28
Dave, no idea, mate – I've been exiled for years. But if it's any good I'll leave a window open for you at half-time, but knowing Everton, it'll be a shit show and still a sell-out. ;-)

Hard-faced bastards!
Bill Watson
74 Posted 14/04/2018 at 01:27:36
End-of-Season Awards?

They should go to the long suffering fans for enduring the dross served up game after game after game. I don't think I've really enjoyed a game all season. Even the 4-0 West Ham match was in the balance for a long period.

Just let the season end.

Mick Conalty
75 Posted 14/04/2018 at 12:30:28
Kenwright should get an award for being the biggest conman in Everton's history. I can see him now, running to the front of the stage blowing kisses and shouting to the audience "I Love You All!"


Jack Convery
76 Posted 14/04/2018 at 15:16:12
Give Pickford the Player of the Year and cancel the rest and give the money saved to EitC.

Dennis Stevens

No Manager of the Season award?
Adolf Ng
78 Posted 15/04/2018 at 19:13:49
Niasse should get an award even just for his commitment and his important role during the terrible spell in the fall of 2017.
Neil Copeland
79 Posted 16/04/2018 at 22:26:20
Perhaps Oumar will be awarded a locker or a suit or both even!
Matthew Williams
80 Posted 18/04/2018 at 14:56:02
For me...

1.The Crossbar,took a battering throughout the season but always held up well.
2.The Goalposts,rock solid at the back & got us out of trouble when trying to close out tight games.
3.The Sprinklers,were always switched on & ready for action,even when it pissed down.

So proud...
