New 2020-21 home strip is launched

Friday, 3 July, 2020 118comments  |  Jump to last

Everton and hummel have unveiled the first product from their new technical partnership with the launch of the 2020-21 home kit which has generated record-setting sales.

The strip includes the Danish firm's iconic chevrons across the shoulders and sleeves of the club's famous royal blue jersey for the first time.

The design pays tribute to Everton's iconic Z-Cars anthem with an image of the song's soundbar expanded and embossed diagonally across the shirt.

Finished with blue and white piping on the sleeves and a round neckline, the look of the shirt is pleasingly minimalist.

The traditional white shorts feature blue chevrons in blue contrast on the outer leg.

The kit is completed with white socks complementing the rest of the strip with blue chevron detail on the front.

The 2020-21 home strip is available to pre-order from 8am on Friday 3 July 2020 via evertondirect.com and can be purchased in-store from July 16 and it has been met with unprecedented demand.

According to Everton's retail partner Fanatics, just four hours after pre-orders began, sales had surpassed the full opening day figures for each season over the past decade.

Alan McTavish, Commercial Director at the club, said: “We knew that our bespoke hummel kit would prove to be popular with supporters - and we are delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response that has helped make this the fastest-selling kit in the Club's history.

“With global sales of kit, training and travel wear, we believe this is only the start of a positive and creative relationship between Everton, hummel and Fanatics.”

Meh. Blue sports shirt that happens to have an Everton logo on it.
Steve Ferns

It looks good, but when you zoom in on it, it looks a bit shiny. It reminds me of the cheap and nasty polyester shirts of the 80s. So, if it's made of that crap, I won't like it.

Jim, the current one was a blue shirt that had an Everton logo on it plus a bunch of haphazard lines across the chest that I was never quite able to get used to.

This is clean and unfussy which will do me just fine when the boys are out there on the pitch. The Cazoo logo is too big but that just seems to be the way of it these days.

I like it.
Annika Herbert

I like it personally. I do hope it's not made of the cheap stuff Steve mentions though.
Martin Berry
6 Posted 03/07/2020 at 08:20:16
Simple and efficient design, easy on the eye and not too busy, I like it.

As for the material, I assume it will be comfortable and not too clinging for those with ample girths. I don't include me in that category by the way.

Oh and Tommy likes it too!

Adam McCulloch

Not one to get too excited either way about kits but I personally think it looks great. Simple and stylish as Martin says, plus it's great to know we are part of Tommy G's new showreel. Guessing we've lined up Per Krøldrup to unveil the 3rd kit...
Dee Gidwani

Typical... when trying to personalise the kit, they only have an option for maximum 2 characters for your name... Sad really.
Alan Rodgers

Looks fine to me, quite plain and unfussy. Are we not having a sleeve sponsor?

To be fair, that's most Everton kits! But still, just hoped might be something a bit more interesting.

But, I wouldn't pay much attention to me. My favourite kit of recent years was the green and orange third kit for a few seasons back

An improvement on the current kit. All the better for not having Angry Birds on the sleeve.
Tony Everan
13 Posted 03/07/2020 at 08:57:33
It's not a classic but it's alright.

The old go-faster chevrons on the shoulders and shorts must mean this is an Everton GTi kit. Gives the player 30% more horse power.

Jim Bennings
14 Posted 03/07/2020 at 09:08:05
To be fair that's a strong effort for Hummel's first bash and I like it a lot.

Simple pure royal blue shirt and a sponsor without any madness going on.

Good start Hummel.

Keeper's pattern looks like a heart monitor.
Martin Nicholls

Anyone think the Club missed a trick when offering season ticket refunds by not giving an option to put part of refund towards purchase of (this) new shirt? They might well have sold more than they would otherwise do.
Kim Vivian
17 Posted 03/07/2020 at 09:13:03
I don't think we have the Tower embroidered below the rear collar – disappointed if that's the case, but like it otherwise.

Martin – good shout that. Commercially savvy to have done that.

John Graham
18 Posted 03/07/2020 at 09:20:53
Kit looks great.

Love the idea of the sound bars and love the video.

We are Everton – no matter what adversities, they will always be in our heart.

It's okay. I was excited about the Hummel brand but any one of us could have knocked this up with an iPad inside an hour. Some of the fans' attempts on Twitter beat this hands down. Anyway...COYB
John Hammond
20 Posted 03/07/2020 at 09:36:12
Everything works for me. Nice, clean design not too fussy. Nice job by Hummel.

Just be glad Nike aren't doing the shirt anymore as leaked pics (if true) of Liverpool's home kit for 2020-21 are truly awful.

Alan #9: I think the club have yet to find a sleeve sponsor. I believe the Angry Birds deal expires at the end of this season.

Mike Allison
21 Posted 03/07/2020 at 09:40:25
Our kits shouldn't have ‘interesting' designs, they should be plain blue. LG don's right that this year's kit had some pointless and annoying lines on the front that it would have been better off without. I suppose the Hummel chevrons were inevitable but they seem to have managed to leave well alone otherwise.

I like it a lot. Hoping for amber and blue away kit but not holding my breath.

Good to see they have extra fatty sizes!!!

Chris Williams
25 Posted 03/07/2020 at 10:00:29
Can someone enlighten this bewildered old fart how these ‘sound bars' represent Z-Cars???
Steven Astley
26 Posted 03/07/2020 at 10:02:56
In my opinion, I think it looks awful. Could have done with being a much braver design.

The Z-Cars sound wave incorporation looks crap and made me cringe. Was this not the gimmick of 5 years ago when Man City had the same but with Blue Moon?

Craig Walker
27 Posted 03/07/2020 at 10:11:35
It's funny how people see things differently. I think this is the best kit we've had for years. It's certainly a lot better than this season's criss-cross one.
Tony Shelby

At least we're not advertising a betting company.
Dan Nulty
29 Posted 03/07/2020 at 10:25:25
I like it too. No shirt is going to be to everyone's taste and there are some fans who wouldn't be happy whatever came out. And I agree with Tony: glad there's no betting company.

Not white socks again... getting very tired of this.

Put a decent midfield inside them and I'll buy one.
Martin Reppion
32 Posted 03/07/2020 at 10:30:42
Frankly, it's a Royal Blue shirt with some white on. That's what we'll see when it matters. And that is all that matters. That we get a few million in the kitty for some fancy squiggles is a bonus.

Yes, I am a dinosaur. I also hate seeing Everton changing from the Royal Blue just to try to sell some 2nd/3rd kit. Why the hell did we wear pink against Norwich for instance? Blue shirt, white shorts hardly clashes with yellow and green.

'COYB' is what I see on here and what is shouted in the ground. As far as I remember, the B stands for Blues. I won't be getting excited when further kits looking like explosions in paint factories are launched.

I presume by the time they are delivered the space on the arms will be a sponsor.

Brian Wilkinson
39 Posted 03/07/2020 at 11:18:33
Decent top that, better than the last few we have had, only tweak I would have added to this top is a white neckline, like the sixties top instead of the Blue.

Other than that, great effort from Hummel.

I am another old fart like Chris @25 and cannot figure out the soundbars Z-Cars thingy either.

Michael Lynch
40 Posted 03/07/2020 at 11:19:37
I'm one of the fans that would hate it whatever we bring out. I loathe modern kits, they're just a mess of adverts and unnecessary flourishes and blemishes on a horrible shiny material. Sound bars, my arse.

At least it's still blue.

Derek Knox
41 Posted 03/07/2020 at 11:31:08
Tony @13, hope you're right about giving the players 30% more horse power, after all we have had enough donkeys over the years!

Does anyone know when the Transfer Market officially opens? Be interesting both to see who we get, and how Carlo foresees the team shaping up for next season's assault.

New kit release day is always a source of amusement reading the reactions.

All told this thread is pretty mild thus far which suggests nothing too radical.

It's the right color blue and it's got our badge on it.

Now let's see some good recruitment that will wear it.

I like it quite a lot: simple and effective,

Better than the current blue pick 'n mix mess at the moment,

Keeper's kit is awful but no biggie as who buys them kits anyway?

Only problem is it looks a bit tight fitting on those professional athletes... hope they do a size that's a bit more flattering!

It depends whether your going to put a player's name on the back... or "Stephen"!

Looks more Hummel than Everton but maybe a generational thing to widen our fan base. At the moment the brand is not big enough to sell Everton or Everton successful enough to sell the brand. Hope that changes and Cazoo become the new Hafnia to be replaced by the next NEC that comes this time with more success.

Sponsorship for me tends to have a more negative effect... I still don't buy Crown Paints or drink Carlsberg. Then why would you after one mouthful? Although the paint tasted moderately better...

Kim Vivian
49 Posted 03/07/2020 at 12:08:52
I'm with Brian and Chris. I like the look of it but can someone explain the Z-Cars thing on the chest which I just don't get? Am I being dim? Or going blind?

Hugh – they all look like they're up for backing him up.

Mike Allison
50 Posted 03/07/2020 at 12:14:16
Jay Woods, are you saying you don't want white socks?

For me, white socks is what makes a kit ‘Everton‘ as opposed to Leicester or Ipswich. They're a necessity.

John Raftery
51 Posted 03/07/2020 at 12:18:30
After the alcohol and gambling prohibition it is good the tops for the kids and infants can carry the main sponsor name in a full replica of the adult version. Hopefully second hand car dealers will not be seen as injurious to general health and well being.
Sam Hoare
52 Posted 03/07/2020 at 12:18:57
I like it. A heart monitor across Pickford's shirt seems especially apt.
Mike Allison
53 Posted 03/07/2020 at 12:27:52
Does anyone know if we're going to be wearing new or old kits for the rest of the season? I'm fairly sure other teams have new kits on – they certainly have new sponsors.
Martin Nicholls
54 Posted 03/07/2020 at 13:00:47
Anyone think any of we supporters will be wearing this new shirt at a game before the next one comes out?

Mike 53,

I think I remember the club saying they are honouring the SportPesa contract until the end of the season.

Thanks

Two thumbs up. Sharp.
Joe McMahon
57 Posted 03/07/2020 at 14:09:21
It's fine, I'm an old fart, so I will always prefer 70s shirts with a collar and just the club badge. Although I did like my Hafnia shirt when I was 12.
John Keating
58 Posted 03/07/2020 at 14:38:29
We get rid of the betting mob because it's not what we want the Club to stand for.

Maybe I'm wrong but we will probably be buying shirts for about 50 quid each, made in Indonesia for a quid and the little girl making it gets a dollar a week.

Ethical?

Craig Walker
59 Posted 03/07/2020 at 14:55:24
Stephen @45. I'm 46 now and I'll be wearing it.

I think the 2011-12 Le Coq one and the 2016-17 Umbro ones have been the best home shirts in recent times.

I thought this season's 3rd kit was the best away/3rd one for a while and I got my lad that when they started flogging it off cheap around Easter time. Even better that his didn't have SportPesa on it.

John Boon
60 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:00:06
I would prefer to get excited by the men inside the shirt. It is an Everton shirt and it will appear even better if it helps to provide wins. Hopefully the men who are fortunate enough to wear it will make it a great shirt.
Arthur Westhead
61 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:08:55
Looks quite good to me. Personally I would love to see us play in an all blue strip, rather than white shorts. I think we always look so much better and more of a presence on the field when in all blue playing away at the likes of Old Trafford.
Kieran Kinsella
62 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:18:10
Steve Ferns,

You old miser. I used to get goose pimples pulling on the 80s shirt as a kid, pretending I was Trevor Steven. It could be a horsehair shirt for all I cared, lol!

Derek Knox
63 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:18:39
Thanks, Vijay, wasn't sure when with all these disruptions etc.
Martin Reppion
64 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:19:17
Arthur, I believe that the all-blue kit we used to wear at Old Trafford, like the black shorts they wore at Goodison, were a result of clashes that old Bb&W TV had with red and white looking the same as blue and white in monochrome.

Those were the days when the only times a team changed was to avoid a clash of colours. But I know, nostalgia isn't what it used to be!

2nd kits, I accept as a necessity. 3rd kits I can live without. When our change kit was yellow with dark shorts, there was never a need for a third choice as nobody of note has a first choice that clashes with that AND blue and white.

Right, it's Friday. Off for a tuppenny fish and a hap'orth of chips.

Dan Nulty
65 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:31:01
Anyone know what the "more than eleven" reference on Twitter is in reference to? Seems a strange hash tag to go with our kit and feel like I've missed something important.
Jeff Spiers
66 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:31:28
What happens to the old kits? Just curious...
Jay Woods
67 Posted 03/07/2020 at 15:36:28
I am saying I want blue socks, as I'm tired of seeing white. We won the league in 1987 with blue socks, so it's not like it's violating a tradition or anything.
Pete Hughes
69 Posted 03/07/2020 at 16:09:37
I agree with Arthur, I would love to see us play in an all-blue kit! Sick of looking at white shirts, white socks! All royal blue ffs! After all, it's our primary colour!
John McFarlane Snr
70 Posted 03/07/2020 at 16:22:33
Hi John [60], like Dave Abrahams and myself, you're old enough to remember when Everton wore shirts without the badge, white shorts with blue stripes down the outside of the thighs, the only alteration on occasion being blue socks with white tops just below the knees. replaced at times by white socks with blue tops just below the knees.

I've just dug some photos out, to make sure that old age hasn't blurred my memory, the 1954 photo shows the blue socks and the 1961 photo the white socks.

Clubs in those days didn't see the money to be made by taking a more commercial attitude. In our schoolboy and youth days, football kits hardly changed, but now they're viewed as fashionable items and the clubs are milking the situation by producing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd kits, and changing them annually.

I have never bought a football shirt/top in my life. I always thought that those who know me know I'm an Evertonian, and those who don't, aren't bothered. I have worn the said items because they have been bought by my children for my birthdays, Christmas etc.

Brian Wilkinson
71 Posted 03/07/2020 at 16:25:02
Even though half of the Premier League is sponsored by betting firms etc, have a look on the BBC football website on changing the law to have no betting firms on their shirts.

As it is rightly a negative reflection on terms of gambling and should be removed from shirts, have a guess which team is in the photo.

Save you the job of looking, it is Everton v Watford.

Brian Murray
72 Posted 03/07/2020 at 16:36:50
All-blue does look more intimidating and impressive. Or, at a push, blue-white socks as we wore at Old Trafford when Big Bob bagged a brace on way to his 30 goals!
Dennis Stevens
73 Posted 03/07/2020 at 16:46:48
I can't agree with those who would prefer us to wear all-blue, especially as it's so common amongst other teams. If, for any reason we can't wear white shorts with our royal blue shirts, then I'd rather we wore black shorts instead.
Phil Bellis
74 Posted 03/07/2020 at 16:47:57
Hi Dan - take a look at the launch video on official site, with Mad Dog (the Danish connection).
Jack Convery
75 Posted 03/07/2020 at 17:05:49
Are the sound waves on the goalkeepers shirt there to remind Pickford to be on the same wavelength as the rest of his defence? The Blue kit is okay but I hate those chevrons. Road signs have chevrons, not footie kits. Anyway, it's what's inside them that counts.
Chris Leyland
76 Posted 03/07/2020 at 17:14:45
Here is a history of our kits. We've worn blue socks for far longer than white ones. By my reckoning, we've only worn white socks for approximately 42 seasons in our 142 year history.

Ray Roche
77 Posted 03/07/2020 at 17:22:14
Don't really mind what colour the socks are, although blue with white top is my favourite, but shorts must be white.

Bollocks to the all-blue Chelsea kit. Blue and white.

Anthony Hawkins
78 Posted 03/07/2020 at 17:25:25
Jack @75 – the chevrons are part of Hummel's ID so you were always on a losing streak once they were announced.
Justin Doone
79 Posted 03/07/2020 at 17:34:05
Agree with the majority that this is a very nice, probably best home kit we have had for several years.

Great 1st effort from Hummel, 8 out of 10 although having not seen it in the the flesh a mark could be deducted. It's clean, simple, blue & badged.

Can't do much about the sponsorship sadly. I prefer a nice logo over simple capital lettering, (a car symbol maybe? )

Also if I'm being picky I'd turn the chevron upside down so it's pointing up. Never any reds or pinks in our kits.

I presume away kit will be white (hopefully) or possibly yellow, (rather it not be).

3rd kit a little more exciting, I like greens and purples, but not together.

Mike Gaynes
80 Posted 03/07/2020 at 17:35:41
I like it, and I'll be ordering one...

...SINCE I STILL CAN'T BUY ONE IN AMERICA.

Stephen Brown
82 Posted 03/07/2020 at 18:05:38
On another note, this has probably been said but I like the fact that we are Hummel's only customer in the Premier League. Also, great to see Tommy Gravesen back in the Everton fold!

We could expand our base in Scandinavia through this link which is a lucrative market!

John Pendleton
83 Posted 03/07/2020 at 18:07:43
Justin #79,

The chevrons on the sock pointing downwards are a handy guide for players to check which way their foot points after a tackle from Spurs wingers.

Bill Gienapp
84 Posted 03/07/2020 at 18:23:29
As a few have joked, the keeper kit seems more inspired by the heart palpitations Pickford often causes in the Everton faithful.
Dan Nulty
85 Posted 03/07/2020 at 18:28:12
Fastest selling shirt and training kit in last 10 years. Not surprised.
Iakovos Iasonidis
86 Posted 03/07/2020 at 20:48:28
I think is is a more than decent effort. The chevrons across the shoulders are great, the shorts are nice, to be honest I like this shirt more than anything we had since 2011. The only thing I don't like is the collar. I would love an old fashioned white collar.
Tony Everan
87 Posted 03/07/2020 at 20:48:42
Any Everton historians?.

What is the origin of the salmon pink away strip, how did that come about? Is it a nod to a colour we used 100 years ago or was it some disco loon designer in the eighties?

Also did we have an away kit in the 19th century? Anyone know any details of that? If not what colours were the very first one ?

Chris Cooper
88 Posted 03/07/2020 at 20:49:17
Looks alright, not a patch on the '70s home shirt: blue, Umbro white diamonds down the sleeve, and amber away shirt with blue diamonds. Best Everton shirts ever, them. Saying that, still won fuck-all.
Patrick McFarlane
89 Posted 03/07/2020 at 21:15:32
Tony #87,
Someone tried to provide this link earlier but it didn't work, pit looks as if the Salmon kit is a nod to the kit the club used in 1891. I'll see if I can find out when and if Everton first used an 'away' kit but the club did sport white/cream shirts in the 1933 FA Cup final, whilst Manchester City wore maroon shirts.

Historical kits

From one of our neighbours web sites:

n 1892, Everton had walked out of Anfield and decided to set up a new club at Goodison Park. Liverpool's new owner, John Houlding, quickly set about building a new team. He recruited most of his players from Scotland, leading to the creation of a so-called ‘team of Macs'. There was just one problem, there was no money left over to buy a kit.

Everton‘s new board had decided to change their shirt to ‘ruby red', so Houlding decided to go rummaging in the Anfield store room and found Everton‘s old blue and white shirts and that became the new team's official kit. So for four full seasons, until 1896, Everton played in red and Liverpool in blue.

Liverpool were referred to during this period as ‘The Anfielders'. However, at the end of the 1895-96 season Liverpool manager John McKenna moved upstairs to the boardroom. Liverpool swiftly appointed Tom Watson as their new boss.

The last game under McKenna, against West Bromwich Albion at Stoney Park, would turn out to be the last time Liverpool played in blue. They lost 2-0.

I like it. Right shade of blue and the essential white socks. I'd have liked a white collar, but that's only a minor detail.

Can't say I'd want to be Pickford on a cold January day wearing short sleeves. It's one of the oddities of modern kits that the player who does the least running around has to play in short sleeves. Strange.

Thank you very much, Patrick, It is fascinating. We were barcodes for a few years way from home after 1900, I never knew that.

The 1976 yellow shirt with the blue collar is special to me. I was bought it when I was 10 for my birthday. Loved the efc in italics. should bring that back someday.

I can't see any early salmon shirtss though, first one 1992?

Tony #92,

Click on the link provided in my post (#89) and you'll see a salmon kit was used in 1891.

I think I'm most disappointed to learn that our new sponsor will be on Villa's shirts next season as well.

Just like SportPesa on Hull's a couple of years ago.

Smacks of a shit deal to me. Can't we have anything for ourselves? Oh yeah, Hummel! Up the Danes!... Oh wait...

I like the 1954-1956 kit – that is very classy.

I think salmon pink was quite popular in Victorian times as I've seen reference to it for a few other clubs kits of the era, iirc.

I don't mind the new kit design by Hummel.

Let's see if it can inspire like the early 80s kit change, and coincided with some good form for Everton!🍀🙏👍⚽️👌🏼

I'm interested to see the away and third strip design and colours in the next few days.

Thanks Patrick, the Salmon connection goes back almost to the beginning then! I wonder what the significance of it was? It seems that was a home kit too.

That looks nothing like an Everton kit.

Brought up on the Umbro shirts with the logo repeated down the sleeves, so the chevrons nearly do it for me.

Agree about the white collar. That said, my favourite Everton kit was the 2015(?) grandad collar... coupled with blue/back socks. Very controversial.

Nice from Hummel,

But, Cazoo, and Graveson is mid-table behaviour.

I get it, but surely at least a smaller sponsor, or throw it on the sleeves.

I don't wear shirts anyway, so I guess all that matters is who's wearing it on the pitch!

Anyone know why there are no kids Y2XL sizes available? They're on the size chart but not listed as as option to purchase.

Karl @91, Apparently some players, especially 'keepers, don't like long sleeves as it is easier for opponents to hold onto, thus restricting movement.

No one pissed off that Villa have the same sponsor too?

I like it. Hummel is a bit different, so I'm pleased with that. The white sock versus blue sock debate is one of opinion but surely all of us footballers out there know there's something about playing in white socks ... or is that just a fetish of mine?!!!

Steve Fern (@2), the link to a tacky 80s kit with a Danish link (Hafnia) is fine with me if it leads to a similar outcome over the next few seasons!!

Maybe they want to sponsor teams in different leagues, Steven?

As long as the money comes through, Steven, I couldn't care less how many teams they sponsor, buddy.

I think this is a really smart kit, can't fault any of it. I'm a big fan of the white sock fetish also Danny @109, I think it just looks neater.

Also the blue Chevron on the shorts are good and after reading Patrick's @90 brilliant link about home and away kits it is something we had started years ago before people compare to Chelsea.

There is some amazing variants on that link @90, I had visited it the last time Patrick posted it and I recommend it for anyone with an interest in the history of our colours. I know this will not be popular but our black kit with the deep red sash is superb.

Remember this was our home kit before they existed so they don't own the colour red!! I think it would make an excellent away kit.
It's funny to read that LFC first ran out in a sky blue kit Everton had left behind at Anfield.

I may remind them of that when they are getting full of themselves these next few weeks and months, god help us. Also, I like the black and white hoops top from about 1890, funny it's like an Everton mint but definitely works as another away kit.

Billy Roberts
113 Posted 04/07/2020 at 16:31:04
Apologies, the black and white hooped top was a lot more modern 1905!!

Still love it, I'd be interested to know what other Blues think of my away kit ideas?

Alan J Thompson
115 Posted 05/07/2020 at 16:42:36
I don't really care as long as the jersey is 99.9% royal blue. I do prefer the white shorts but does anyone else think that blue & white hooped socks make it look like your feet move quicker.

If I do have a gripe, it is why we wear an away kit when there is no colour clash. I know it is for the dosh from sales but I always preferred, in order, the white shirts and black shorts or the Brazil style yellow and green(?) kits of yesteryear, if we have to at all.

Steven, the club would have taken the best offer put to them. If we had the same sponsor as Real Madrid or Juve, would it be different?
Barry McNally
117 Posted 05/07/2020 at 19:37:31
Steven 108, Villa likely to be in a different division for the foreseeable.
Steven Astley
118 Posted 05/07/2020 at 20:58:03
Carl (116),

Yes, I feel it would be different if we had the same sponsor as Real or Juve.

We should be aspiring to something far better than Aston Villa, on all fronts. That's where I find it frustrating I think.

Alan J Thompson
119 Posted 06/07/2020 at 07:34:49
What's up with some of you blokes?

We didn't get the same sponsor as Villa – they got the same one we have!!

Gordon Bloody Bennett... No, he doesn't play for them!

Tony Twist

It's a nice kit, similar in basic design to last year's Rangers top but I would buy it under normal conditions but I won't be. I'm afraid Everton haven't done anything for a while now that I am proud of.

I have always supported Everton but all my kids don't and I have never pushed them to do so. Being an Evertonian is my cross to bear, my curse... I'm not forcing any of my kids to do the same, that would be child abuse!

Everton really do need to wake up. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is more important than us winning football matches – not a new player bought, unless he does the business on the pitch, not Bramley-Moore Dock stadium...

Everton need take a long hard look at themselves and the inner workings of the club and sort themselves out as, at the moment, they are like the Titanic just after hitting the iceberg, thinking that they are unsinkable.
