All that we ask

Paul Traill

It was a deserved win and the most important thing is that the effort was there. It’s not enough to erase the scars of last week’s Anfield horror, but a reactive win certainly helps ease the pain. Effort from the players should be a given. It’s not much to ask, is it?

European football? È possibile

Paul Traill

An important win then, one which has lifted Everton up to 7th. Everton are now second in the form table, which will raise a few eyebrows.

A mate asking if I wanted to join him in the Dixie Dean Lounge for the match. Naturally, I jumped at the chance… not least because of the prospect of catching a glimpse of a certain Carlo Ancelotti.

Blues fight with pride... thanks to one man

Paul Traill

Last time we walked away from Goodison Park, we had supporters arguing with each other after the Goodison Park crowd had just sung “You're getting sacked in the morning” at Marco Silva. This time, it was great to walk out with smiles on our faces.

Big Second Half Sees Everton Into Last Eight

Paul Traill

In the first half, Everton were lacklustre and didn’t get into their stride;they needed to be better. Thankfully, Everton did dramatically improve after the break and ran out fully deserving winners.

Pressure-Relieving Win for Marco’s Blues

Paul Traill

It was a great team performance from Everton, a real stellar effort from the lads in a game we simply had to win.

Sheffield return, via useless in-built Sat Nav

Paul Traill

Heading to The Wirral, I was navigated by the Sat Nav towards the A628, only to find it was closed. The Sat Nav is supposed to be aware of traffic and road closure issues but it declined to inform me (first world problems, eh!), instead routing me towards the next entrance to the A628, which was also closed.

Sack Marco? Not Now

Paul Traill

>Many want Marco Silva out. That would be a mistake in my opinion and I don’t think that is the solution

Tough encounter in tough conditions negotiated

Paul Traill

Though Everton lacked in quality for most of the game, they didn’t lack in heart and spirit and did have a steely determination to see the job through on a blustery, but warm, afternoon at Goodison Park.

Just so... Everton

Paul Traill

You can’t help but feel that frustration of another cup that has got away from us and, for the second year running in the Carabao Cup, we have bowed out on penalties.

Everton edge thriller

Paul Traill

She’s Electric by Oasis boomed out over the tannoy as Everton were applauded off the field following a job well done against a good team. A great game. A “thriller” you could say, and certainly a great advert for the Premier League.

Well, we really out-ridiculoused ourselves this time

Paul Traill

I doubt my friends and I are alone in just being fed up of this same old script. Everton always find a way to ruin you. We should be used to it by now, though somehow we’re not.

Happy October... Please

Paul Traill

I’m relieved to see the back of September as it’s been disastrous. I firmly believe that, come the end of October, we will have won at least two of our three league games against Burnley, West Ham United and Brighton; and will have despatched Watford to make it into the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup.

Why do we deserve this, Evertonians?

Paul Traill

I’d really rather not change managers again. I like Marco Silva. I want him to put it right, however watching today I was dismayed by our predictability and how rudderless we were.
