Robert Tressell

The Deduction Reduction and What it Means for Everton’s Season

Matthew Parry
26/02/2024

The little waft of positivity we’ve received today is no consolation. It remains a bitter pill to swallow after what has been a farcical few months from start to finish. Goodison needs to be the bearpit it can be on its best days to sustain our stand against those destroying our game.

Danny O’Neill
26/02/2024

1-0 up but, for some reason, we sat deep against 10 players, and you could sense the inevitable. We invited it. And it happened. It would have been difficult to surpass last season’s visit to the Amex.

Goodison Park Legacy Project

James Pankhurst
12/02/2024

The majority of the project is superb but why has nothing been said about the complete demolition of such an historically important structure as Goodison Park which has been a part of my life for over 50 years and for hundreds of thousands of other people’s lives for nearly 150 years?

VAR is killing football. Making it palatable is likely beyond the powers that be

Lyndon Lloyd
11/02/2024

The evidence of the past four years shows that the great promise of Video Assistant Referees as a panacea to controversy was a false prophecy. VAR, as implemented by these officials and under the current guidelines, is deeply flawed and the soul of the game suffering for it

Everton’s Debt Position and Ownership Alternatives

Paul The Esk

Be glad we’ve got Dyche

Robert  Tressell
03/02/2024

With the present playing staff, he’s done a remarkable job in the time he’s been here – and though it won’t be pretty, he certainly gives us a very good chance of staying up despite the wildly disproportionate points deduction.

The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Danny O’Neill
28/01/2024

In general, it was a tough watch and poor performance. Luton had energy and aggression that we struggled to cope with. We were tame and lacked composure or confidence. I left Goodison on Saturday gutted.

Not the worst thing

Paul Traill
27/01/2024

Rob Sawyer

Ice-cold Goodison sees Blues progress

Michael Kenrick
04/01/2024

Back to the future

Rob Jones
26/12/2023

I'm 35. I became an Everton fan in 1995 (too late, sadly, it was in the autumn). Apologies if this article is long-winded. In many respects, it's a form of therapy, if only for myself.

Michael Kenrick
19/12/2023

Big Spending January?

Robert Tressell
12/12/2023

It's obviously not going to be a big spending January but we never have needed mega bucks to materially improve the squad. Here’s hoping that Thelwell will have enough wriggle room to do his magic.

We Shall Not Be Moved

Lyndon Lloyd
10/12/2023

Everton’s appeal against their penalty might yet see them claw some of those docked points back but, in the meantime, they will push on, displaying the kind of character that Sean Dyche has so admirably harnessed in his 11 months in charge at Goodison.

Lyndon Lloyd
29/11/2023
