Blues fight with pride... thanks to one man

Paul Traill : 08/12/2019

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.

Everton break through wall of worry under Talismanic Ferguson

Lyndon Lloyd : 07/12/2019

Everton badly needed a result today; one point would have done in the circumstances but three would have been priceless and cometh the hour, cometh the man to inspire a performance of high intensity, desire and determination that was matched by a raucous and then rapturous Goodison Park.

Back to Basics for Ferguson's Battling Blues

Michael Kenrick : 07/12/2019

Duncan Ferguson takes charge of Everton for the visit of Chelsea as caretaker manager with Marco Silva finally sacked this week following a dreadful run of results that sees Everton starting this match in the relegation zone.

Ruthless Liverpool shred Everton's defences leaving Silva staring into the abyss

Lyndon Lloyd : 04/12/2019

Whether this latest drubbing was as bad as feared or simply just depressingly predictable probably depends on who you ask but at the base level, the Blue faithful were failed by Marco Silva, the majority of his players and a defensive strategy so surprising in its naïveté that it’s hard to see how the Portuguese can remain in charge any longer.

Hopeless defending drops Everton into bottom 3

Michael Kenrick : 04/12/2019

Everton started the 234th Merseyside derby starstruck by Liverpool's attacking quality, pace and accuracy that saw them score 4 simple goals in the first half.

Fine margins but reality's grip tightens around Silva's Everton

Lyndon Lloyd : 02/12/2019

Everton have taken some punches to the solar plexus already this season but this one hit particularly hard and it will leave Marco Silva, if he is indeed to survive until the Merseyside derby, with a huge task in trying to lift his charges off the canvas in time for Anfield on Wednesday.

VAR secures predicted Everton defeat

Michael Kenrick : 01/12/2019

Everton begin their most testing run of the season at the King Power Stadium where they take an injury-ravaged side with Marco Silva in a precarious position despite a show of unity from Marcel Brands.

Canaries in the coal mine portend the death of Silva's Everton tenure

Lyndon Lloyd : 23/11/2019

This was so bad, so disorganised, passionless and lethargic that even if they had managed to rescue a point, it wouldn’t have been enough to dampen the growing sense that Silva’s week-to-week case for remaining in the post now needs to come to a definitive end.

Blues humbled in pathetic showing against bottom club Norwich

Michael Kenrick : 23/11/2019

With the final international break of the calendar year out of the way, Everton return to Premier League action this weekend with the visit of the division's bottom club, Norwich City.

Everton grateful for rare away win but Silva still has plenty to prove

Lyndon Lloyd : 09/11/2019

This was an absolutely vital victory but the performance that underpinned it was largely unconvincing and there was little here to advance Marco Silva’s claim to be the man to realise the club’s ambitions at the top end of the Premier League.

Blues finally win away from home

Michael Kenrick : 09/11/2019

Everton got off to a fine start down to the south coast, Tom Davies heading an early goal from a corner against fellow strugglers Southampton.

Injury curse strikes again before Tosun rescues a point

Lyndon Lloyd : 04/11/2019

It was one of those days where the final result felt rather immaterial; where a long-term injury to another important player, another largely disappointing performance, more infuriatingly poor refereeing and the damningly criminal injustice of VAR all combined to leave you with a sense of futility about 2019-20.

Horrible game ends in horror for Gomes

Michael Kenrick : 03/11/2019

Everton took on Spurs at Goodison Park in a lower-table clash, both sides confirming their poor form coming into this one. And it only got worse for Everton, gifting a goal to Spurs, then seeing Gomes go off with a broken ankle.

Big Second Half Sees Everton Into Last Eight

Paul Traill : 30/10/2019

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.

Holgate rescues a turgid Carabao Cup affair

Michael Kenrick : 29/10/2019

Everton struggled to break down Watford in a dreadful first half of this Carabao Cup game, but finally broke through thanks to Holgate, with Richarlison sealing it in the last minute.

Silva's men buckle at Brighton as VAR finally comes for Everton

Lyndon Lloyd : 27/10/2019

The “VARce” at the Amex Stadium was only part of the equation because there are deeper-seated issues at play in this Everton side behind why they spent the long journey north mulling yet another defeat

VAR denies Everton rare comeback away win

Michael Kenrick : 26/10/2019

Everton's visit to Brighton in Week 10 of the Premier League will feature in live commentary on BBC Radio 5.

Pressure-Relieving Win for Marco’s Blues

Paul Traill : 20/10/2019

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

Changes for the good earn reprieve for Silva

Lyndon Lloyd : 20/10/2019

Together with Marco Silva'a adjustments in terms of personnel, Everton set a benchmark today for the minimum effort, tempo and drive that his required in every game and they have to meet it now on a consistent basis because they proved how much better they are than recent form has suggested.

Silva's changes breathe fresh life into Everton

Michael Kenrick : 19/10/2019

Marco Silva made no less than five changes against West Ham and secured the win with goals from Bernard and Sigurdsson.

All the Hallmarks of a Death Spiral

Lyndon Lloyd : 05/10/2019

This was same old, same old and it can’t continue any longer. Marco Silva’s position is rapidly becoming untenable, his status as Everton manager is in danger of being critically undermined by a stubborn refusal to change.

Why do we deserve this, Evertonians?

Paul Traill : 05/10/2019

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.

10-man Everton beaten in another insipid away display

Michael Kenrick : 05/10/2019

Everton, effectivey unchanged, give up a goal from a set-piece, lose Coleman to a red card, and lose away again.

Happy October... Please

Paul Traill : 29/09/2019

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.

Blues can't bridge gulf in class but will take positives from defeat to City

Lyndon Lloyd : 28/09/2019

Evertonians will come out of this game with mixed feelings. On the one hand, the Blues suffered an almost entirely predictable defeat; on the other, there was a noticeable response from Marco Silva’s players to the debacle against Sheffield United

Everton fall to the Champions again

Michael Kenrick : 28/09/2019

Everton hauled themselves back into contention when Dominic Calvert-Lewin's goal sent them into the break level but the Champions powered to victory in the second half

Sheffield return, via useless in-built Sat Nav

Paul Traill : 25/09/2019

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 : 22/09/2019

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

There may be trouble ahead

Dave Williams : 22/09/2019

Sheffield Utd were very well organised, two banks of four and with our ponderous build-up and tendency to play across the pitch and back again we made it easy for them.

Crisis looms for Silva as another season derails

Lyndon Lloyd : 21/09/2019

Following an utterly dreadful performance against Sheffield United, the Portuguese can be under no illusions about the mess he and his team have made of the new campaign

Blades cut to the heart of Blues' incompetence

Michael Kenrick : 21/09/2019

Total domination of possession by Everton, and 6 corners in each half, produced nothing, only for Mina to score an own-goal from their first corner.

Away-day blues show no signs of abating

Lyndon Lloyd : 15/09/2019

This team is as firmly ensconced in the recent Evertonian tradition of serial underachievement away from home as any in recent years. Everton rarely win away matches and with defending like this, these sorts of ugly reverses are going to keep happening.

Blues have no answer for Bournemouth Bogey

Michael Kenrick : 15/09/2019

Everton went behind in a difficult first-half but Calvert-Lewin grabbed his first goal since March with a fine header to put them back in the game.

My Goodison Park Pilgrimage

Bill Gienapp : 13/09/2019

My very first trip to Goodison Park from Los Angeles, and thankfully, the gods were kind. Home against Wolves and even better, the match was moved to Sunday, which meant I wouldn’t have to take a train straight from the airport.

Everton's under-performers rediscover their mojo in exciting win over Wolves

Lyndon Lloyd : 01/09/2019

Together with a trio of new signings making their full debuts, Richarlison, Sigurdsson and Gomes emerged from their early season funk to drive Everton to what feels like a huge victory

Everton edge thriller

Paul Traill : 01/09/2019

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.

Blues victorious in a tremendous Goodison exhibition

Michael Kenrick : 01/09/2019

Everton kicked off their second home game on Sunday with the visit of Wolves in whirlwind style, 2-1 after 11 mins, and winning well 3-2 in the end.

Stars new and old point the way forward as Everton deal with Lincoln

Lyndon Lloyd : 28/08/2019

Everton discovered their shooting boots and quadrupled their scoring tally for the season as they progressed to the third round of the Carabao Cup at Sincil Bank this evening

The Scripts Write Themselves

Lyndon Lloyd : 24/08/2019

A result and the performance that under-pinned it for the most part, were unsurprising — it was all just depressingly familiar; another potentially strong start to a season undermined by a display that served to highlight rather than mask the deficiencies that still exist in this Everton team

Blues go to sleep for 2 seconds...

Michael Kenrick : 23/08/2019

A very conservative Everton side played well enough until Aston Villa caught them sleeping on a quick free-kick, for Wesley to score with ease.

Tough encounter in tough conditions negotiated

Paul Traill : 18/08/2019

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.

Not pretty but the points were paramount

Lyndon Lloyd : 17/08/2019

This could easily have ended in an irritating draw but this Everton team has now kept 10 sheets in its last 13 and with none of the summer acquisitions yet fully bedded in the team, it's been a pretty good start to the season.

Everton grind out a vital win

Michael Kenrick : 17/08/2019

Everton got off to a fine start with an early goal from Bernard against Watford at Goodison Park

Familiar story for rusty Everton against stubborn Palace

Lyndon Lloyd : 10/08/2019

Plus ça change…”, "deja vu”… pick your French cliché. Everton began a new season with yet another draw — their seventh in the last eight seasons — in a game that was eerily similar to the one between these two teams in late April.

Two points dropped after Schneiderlin walks

Michael Kenrick : 23/08/2019

Everton’s 2019-20 Premier League campaign kicks off at Selhurst Park this weekend against Crystal Palace
