With another seemingly interminable international break upon us – albeit, thankfully, the last one of the calendar year – I took the opportunity to catch up with the Good Doctor Everton and ask him about his new collaboration with Rob Sawyer, the biography of striking legend Roy Vernon
Marco Silva’s admission that he is impressing on Richarlison the need to stay on his feet is long overdue because, while Everton continue to be the victims of galling double standards, the Brazilian needs to do all he can to change the perceptions of him.
Marco Silva’s management of the young Italian has gone from frustrating to highly dubious.
Marco Silva goes into a match that he himself has declared as "must-win" against a talented but unpredictable West Ham side.
The incomplete summer recruitment made for less than ideal circumstances this season but none of Everton's personnel issues, even in aggregate, really account for how poor the team has been. That is clearly down to other factors that ultimately rest at the feet of the manager.
Like the overwhelming majority of Evertonians it seems, judging by the voting on our current poll, I was pretty pleased with what I saw when the first visuals of Bramley-Moore Dock were revealed. I'd love to see a couple of unique touches added to the inside, though.
A chat with Elizabeth France, wife of the good Dr Everton, on renewed hope for the new season – possibly the make or break season under Mr Moshiri’s ownership
The failure to replace Kurt Zouma was frustrating because the recruitment this summer has, otherwise, been hugely encouraging, leaving Marco Silva with a more dangerous outfit going forward but thin at the back. Everton will rely on Keane and Mina forging a meaningful partnership, some luck with injuries and some help from the some of the so-called "big six" this season.
It's not hyperbole to suggest that at one stage Michael Keane was close to being written off in some quarters as another expensive but ultimately inadequate signing from the Steve Walsh era. He's come a long way since in the space of Marco Silva's first season in charge.
