The Curious Case of Oumar Niasse

Trevor Powell
Posted 13/01/2020

Think back to the outcry as a result of Oumar Niasse on Saturday 18 November 2017 versus Crystal Palace (Away).

Niasse sparked controversy in the match by appearing to dive to win Everton a penalty, which was converted by Leighton Baines to make th...

What would it take for Europe?

Len Gowing
Posted 12/01/2020

What would it take for us to get into Europe?

I tend to be a fan who asks "What if?" ... What if Baines had taken the first penalty versus Leicester; what if we hadn't had terrible VAR decisions; what if...

Okay, put aside the reality of ...

So, what next?

Jim Bailey
Posted 08/01/2020

Having read hundreds of posts and contributed one myself, it's pretty clear that the vast majority of us do not wish to see particular players wear the shirt again. Some call for a huge, wholesale cull; some want to see some of the youngsters give...

Ancelotti and Ferguson

Anton Walsh
Posted 08/01/2020

Can someone please explain to me why Big Dunc is the right-hand man? Two completely different approaches to playing.

Alongside Koeman, Allardyce and Silva, Ferguson never seemed to do anything except throw the ball for headers during the warm-up....

Morgan Schneiderlin

Ste Traverse
Posted 08/01/2020

Have we ever had a bigger waster at our club? Pound for pound the worst player we've had the misfortune to see in a Blue shirt. Him feigning injury in the derby allowing the Liverpool player to shoot unmarked when he should've been closing...

Do we really have an Academy?

Mike Oates
Posted 06/01/2020

Whilst we all angry as hell following that non-performance, just take a minute out to wonder why we are continuing to have to play the likes of Sigurdsson, Schneiderlin, Coleman, Walcott, etc. Why aren’t they looking over their shoulders at new ...

Everton FC - self inflicted football subjugation?

Paul Birmingham
Posted 06/01/2020

The pain is lifelong and the worst fears realised, as we’d feared yesterday afternoon.

Hows and whys, more questions and all break down to common answers.

For such a massive game and opportunity why did the players fail to show, and ...

Bernard Halligan
Posted 06/01/2020

As a lifelong Everton supporter living in Canada, I have spent the last two winters in the UK with my wife in her hometown of Birkenhead. The main attraction, apart from family, is my love of my team, the Toffees.

I watched last night’s g...

Changing our minds

Tony  Everan
Posted 03/01/2020

To hell with the natural order.

All this 4 to 5 year project , so be patient , I don't fully buy in to. If Carlo Ancelotti gets backed in the transfer market to buy one or two quality players , then go for it. Top four is possible sooner rat...

Possession Football

Don Alexander
Posted 01/01/2020

In watching today's match, we were informed that we had possession of the ball for a third of it. I thought we once again afforded Man City, a top team, far too much respect. A large part of the third of the game where we had possession was to me spe...

The Ancelotti Song

Conor Skelly
Posted 28/12/2019

When we're down at half-time
And we win it by 5

When Dom hits the net
He’s the best we’ve seen yet

Because He’s won the fuckin lot
Carlo is boss

It was just meant to be
We’re Everton...

Bit of fun here as 2019 draws to a conclusion...

What’s your team of the decade?

Santa Rings More Changes for 2019

John Boon
Posted 23/12/2019

My elves were working night and day
For Christmas TWO NINETEEN
Everyone was edgy
And things were not serene
The Reindeers were revolting
And this just wasn’t go...

What Now For Brands?

Steve Hogan
Posted 20/12/2019

In the next 6 months, and possibly sooner, the future of Marcel Brands at Everton will be decided.

After his much-heralded arrival, and somewhat basking in his previous role in Dutch football as an astute spotter of young emerging talent in Europ...

Playing two up top v Man Utd?

David Cooper
Posted 12/12/2019

Whatever the debate about who is going to be the next long-term manager of EFC — that is more than 18 months — Dunc will be in charge on Sunday. So, will he go with two up top and follow the tried and tested coaching maxim “If it ain’t bro...

A fine line between genius and madness

I don't really have anything else to add, other than I genuinely believe this sort...

The Legend

Andy Crooks
Posted 08/12/2019

This is the first time I have used this phrase without quotation marks. It was always intended as a pejorative comment on Duncan Ferguson. I have been relentlessly critical of him, mostly as a player, but as coach too.

I stand by much of what I s...

The man who saved Rangers

Andy Crooks
Posted 03/12/2019

I lived in Glasgow for quite a few years. My preferred team was Clydebank. I spent some fine afternoons at Kilbowie. I also watched Motherwell, Partick, Killie, Dumbarton. Also, I was unusual in that I watched Rangers and Celtic. I just like football...

Jamie Carragher

Anthony Batty
Posted 03/12/2019

This is a letter I have written to Sky:

I am writing this on behalf of the fans of Everton FC to inform you that Jamie Carragher is no longer welcome inside Goodison Park ever again. We, the fans, are taking action to inform the owners of this fac...

End this nonsense now

Steve Hogan
Posted 02/12/2019

I've waited almost 24 hours before beginning to write this article, and most of my anger and frustration is not aimed at Marco Silva, but the spineless and totally inept senior figures at the club.

In truth, Silva should have gone within half-a...
