How a James Rodriguez mishap led a man from Texas to fly to Everton
I do worry about 777 Partners owning Everton, but I probably worry more that the takeover doesn’t go ahead.
The threat of the charge for a second alleged breach of PSR still looms large but the Club and its fans at least have a modicum of clarity about their situation following the Appeal Board ruling
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.
An assessment of Moshiri’s culpability in Everton’s position and a suggestion as to how he can partially redeem himself
Everton travel to the Amex Community Stadium to take on Brighton with the ever-present need to secure points away from the Goodison Park pressure cooker.
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.
Everton are back at Goodison Park under the lights for the televised Monday night game where they will take on new rivals in the bid to beat the drop in the form of Crystal Palace.
John Lindsay was a classy full-back who suffered injury misfortune that meant he never did get back to the level of fitness and sharpness required for a Blues first team comeback
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?
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 have Amadou Onana back in the squad for this weekend’s trip to the Etihad Stadium to face reigning champions and treble winners, Manchester City.
Whatever the solution is going forwards, Moshiri has caused huge pain to himself, the club, the fans (most importantly), creditors, sponsors and their backers. The longer we wait for a solution or resolution, the worse our situation becomes.
Out now, a new book that documents unbridled ambition crashing into chaotic reality, starting in 2014 when Farhad Moshiri first began talks about taking a stake in Everton and going right up to the present day.
ToffeeWeb were given exclusive access to Everton's immersive showroom last November to get more than a flavour of our beautiful new ground and the stadium bars and pubs that form the final ALL seasonal membership packages that the club unveiled today
Everton play what will be only their second home game in the Premier League of 2024 when Tottenham Hotspur come to Goodison Park for the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.
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.
A resilient performance. The Blues never gave in on the pitch and in the stands.
Everton return to Premier League action on Tuesday evening as they travel to London to face a tricky assignment against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
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.
It’s all about being clinical with opportunities and, if you have a limited squad, it’s more difficult to have that because the quality isn’t always there.
A pretty dreadful FA Cup tie with few redeeming moments saw Everton beaten by Luton right at the end of 5 minutes of added time when the visitors bundled home a corner to avoid a replay no-one wanted.
How I became a blue and my memories of Goodison Park
I was not born with Everton in my blood, but I’m now as Blue as they come
Brian Labone wasn't the only Everton stalwart of his era to embody the Corinthian spirit. "Gentleman Jack" leaves a legacy of being one of the School of Science’s most polished centre-backs and one of its finest men.
Put yourself in the position of Mr Laurence Rabinowitz KC appearing before the Premier League's independent panel to hear the appeal
The match itself was a tough watch. Very scrappy and niggly, which led to a subdued atmosphere for large parts, not helped by a very small away following.
Nev and I recently spoke to Palestine national team player, Mohammed Bassim Rashid, for the Everton legend's podcast ahead of Palestine's opening match at the Asian Cup v Saudi Arabia. It was powerful and poignant as he told us about the impact on the Palestinian football community of Israel's assault on Gaza.
Goodison Park under the lights tonight as Everton and Crystal Palace face off again for a place in the 4th round of the FA Cup
It's absurd that Everton could be punished for the same crime twice in the same season
Everton and Aston Villa played out a niggly stoppage-ridden apology for a football match at Goodison Park in front of the Sky cameras in this afternoon's Premier League clash
The Liverpool-born trade union leader was the founder of the Everton Shareholders Association which, in circumstances that will be feel very familiar in light of the recent protests against the Goodison Park hierarchy, grew out of vocal dissatisfaction with the running of the club in the 1920s and 1930s
A follow-up to an article over the summer, three more objectives for the manager for the second half of the 2023-24 season
Everton could not force a win against Crystal Palace before it descended into farce with VAR forcing a red card on Calvert-Lewin, McNeil suffering a serious injury, and the Blues having to do it all again with an unwanted replay at Goodison Park during their winter break.
2023 has been a testing year for Evertonians, to say the least.
Everton are at Molineux to take on Wolves for their final game of 2023.
The new stadium will provide an uplift in revenue but it won't be enough. Some suggest the only way forward for Everton is to be purchased by some nation state but the best we can hope for?
There was no stopping Manchester City's second-half steamroller at Goodison Park after Everton had taken the lead through Harrison in a strong first-half display.
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.
Everton travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium looking to lift themselves back up after disappointment in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening with what would be a fifth successive win in the Premier League
I was surprised Onana walked forward, but even so could not believe what came next. What the heck was he doing? An abysmal penalty and he can have no excuse.
Everton battled long and hard to get back level in this game after a Keane own-goal, Beto finally heading the equaliser under the lights at Goodison Park, only to lose the penalty shoot-out from a winning position with Onana's dreadful attempt.
This would make an excellent present for anybody at Christmas and a wonderful read thereafter.
Sean Dyche makes his first return to former club Burnley as Everton manager
What are the options ahead of us? Who should take the pain of our past management?
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.
Derek Turner making his first trip, with son, to Goodison Park in 34 years of being a Toffee.
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.
Calvert-Lewin was brave but was left crumpled and hurt on the ground so couldn’t celebrate the goal that he enabled.
Everton are back at Goodison Park for another huge game, this time against big-spending Chelsea.
Not since that thrilling evening against Crystal Palace 19 months ago has the Old Lady rocked and roared to a winning performance under the lights like did tonight. It may have taken a couple of mistakes from an unlikely source to open the door but, make no mistake, Everton were full value for this victory.
Everton are back under the lights to face Newcastle United at Goodison Park this evening looking for a change in fortunes having recorded just one Premier League win at home so far this season.
Let's take a closer look at this thorny business of trying to abide by the Premier League's rules… I mean, we can all safely assume that at least the Premier League themselves will do that, surely?
Some excerpts of a new book that has a go at covering a club that has amassed more stats and stories than you could probably contain within one tome.
Ash from NUFC News gives the opposition's thoughts ahead of Thursday's game
Retired lawyer Peter Quinn has been diligently following the case of Everton's PSR breach and provides this article as a comprehensive analysis of where we are after the club filed its appeal of the independent commission's decision to deduct 10 points as punishment in line with Premier League wishes.
An article I wrote for the excellent Blackwatch fanzine last year, about that unrelenting fever of childhood football passion. In my case, it coincided with the a very tough time for Everton, as we plummeted from Champions to mid-table obscurity.
Everton ground out a laudable victory over a team that had only lost once at home all season and, until today, hadn’t lost successive fixtures at the City Ground in 15 months
Everton travel to the City Ground this weekend in desperate need of a positive result after they were pushed to bottom place in the Premier League after Burnley thumped Sheffield Utd 5-0.
The 10-point penalty meted out to the Blues was what so many have said – a disproportionately harsh sporting punishment for a financial crime that makes a mockery of the very concept at the heart of the Premier League's unevenly applied rules: sustainability
He's been dealt an awful hand in terms of finances and kept Everton up last season but there are elements of Sean Dyche's management style that are hard to get on board with
Everton return to action for the first time since the Premier League deducted 10 points as Manchester United come to a Goodison Park that is expected to be a bearpit of defiance in front of the Sky cameras.
The true reality is that our position is now perilous. The Premier League have deliberately put us in a position that could easily get out of control, and that includes financially too.
A summary of the justification the Independent Commission used to recommend a 10-point points deduction for Everton
It’s hard to shrug off the feeling that there was nowhere near enough distance between the prosecution and the adjudicating entity for this to have been a truly fair process.
In terms of mentality and unity of purpose, Everton are night and day from the team that twice lost at Selhurst Park two seasons ago and which went into the World Cup break in disarray
Everton scored early but kept ceding possession to a hugely competitive Crystal Palace. However, go-ahead goals from Doucoure then Gana, who finally scored an excellent goal, sealed a tremendous end-to-end victory for the travelling Blues
Rob Sawyer recalls the man who provided the Toffees with their own musical soundtrack in the late 1920s and 1930s
As much as seeing a hard-earned victory slip away late on rankles, four points from the last two games and progress in the cup is a decent return for a week's work
Everton are back at Goodison Park for this weekend's Premier League fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion and a real test to see if Sean Dyche can build on recent good results.
Taken from ‘Real Footballers’ Wives – the First Ladies of Everton’
by Becky Tallentire in 2004, Nancy Young, the wife of Everton legend Alex, recounts her story.
Everton are becoming a much more difficult visiting opponent now that Sean Dyche is in charge and this was another professional performance away from
home that delivered three precious points
Everton traveled to London where they burst David Moyes’s West Ham bubble at the London Stadium with a top-drawer winning goal from Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
We don’t get these calls when playing against Liverpool or any of the big teams. We just don’t. And there’s not a lot we can do about it…
A second yellow in the first half ruined Everton's game plan, which finally crumbled with a Salah penalty gifted by Keane.
Assertions made by both Moshiri and Josh Wander as to the suitability and performance of 777 partners as Everton's new owners deserve scrutiny
It would be nearly 40 years before the supreme Everton marksman’s amazing life story was properly told. The person to thank for capturing Dean’s memories in book form was fellow Birkenhead man, Nick Walsh.
What have 777 Partners been doing at Genoa these past 2 years?
This was an important win, make no mistake. While this only takes us up to 15th position in the league table, it’s a big relief to have a little cushion on the teams in the Bottom 3.
This was the tonic to lift Evertonian spirits heading into a two-week hiatus before the trip to Mordor. Had the margin of victory been twice as wide, Bournemouth boss Andoni Iraola couldn’t have complained.
Everton scored early through Garner and added good goals from Harrison and Doucoure to secure a vital win over fellow strugglers Bournemouth
By 2014, their wage bill was crippling and they ceased operations in 2016 due to insolvency; they were expelled from the Ukrainian League and their owner had basically ‘done a runner’ and left Ukraine.
Assessing the best options in midfield. Spoiler alert: It involves James Garner
As a club, we are "happy" surviving. Being in the Premier League is success, we are told. Well, why doesn't it feel like success? I was raised believing the point was winning things. Not simply existing...
In light of the somewhat chaotic developments in the takeover saga in recent weeks, the question on Evertonian minds now is just who are 777 Partners and are they both capable and worthy of running one of England’s most storied and successful football clubs?
An analysis of the Florida-based investment firm's suitability as future owners of Everton Football Club
For all the manager’s talk of changing the story, this was a tale so depressingly predictable to Everton fans that it’s been practically chiseled into the brickwork at Goodison Park in recent years
The scenes at full time were brilliant. Sheer delight for the travelling Toffees. We now finally have a home draw, and not a bad one at that too in the form of Burnley. Win that and we’re in the quarter-final. Wembley? Who knows?
This smothering display set the benchmark for how the side should approach teams away from home and reinforced the notion the Blues should be nowhere near the bottom three come May. It also raises hopes that the Blues could go deep into a competition they have never won.
Everton returned to Villa Park but this time in the 3rd Round of the Carabao Cup where Sean Dyche named a pretty strong team that included Jack Harrison for his Everton debut and they stunned Villa with 2 vital goals.
Johan Hammar recently caught up with Ell Bretland on the SQaF Untold YouTube channel to look back on his time with the Toffees.

Everton outplayed Brentford this evening with Sean Dyche and his men securing their first win of the Premier League campaign.
I see administration now as a foregone conclusion. I therefore would like to see it happen while we are still a Premier League club. Even if we don’t go into administration, we’re likely facing relegation anyway.
It was curious how much respect Everton paid Arsenal today and how meekly they seemed to accept their fate; as if defeat were obvious before a ball was kicked
No complaints about the result. The lads put a good shift in but were beaten by a much, much better team. It’s about as simple as that really.
Everton are back at Goodison Park and in front of the Sky cameras for a huge match against Arsenal which they, as the expression goes, failed to turn up for.
The Esk stands by his initial assessment that 777 Partners do not have the resources to successfully acquire Everton, nor will they get the support of all parties required
The main challenge for Sean Dyche this season is to accrue enough points to keep out of trouble. Having added greater strength to the wings and attack this summer, we should be able to do that.
Hot on the heels of recent features about Everton’s first biographer, Thomas Keates, the Everton FC Heritage Society has released a new documentary film about the links between Everton village and the football club which adopted its name in 1879

Everton were in action at lunchtime today when they could only draw with newly promoted Sheffield United at Bramhall Lane after taking the lead but failing to build on it with yet more missed chances.
The transfer window has closed, and we now (more or less) know the squad that will compete in the 2023-24 season under Sean Dyche
Everton went behind to Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup and needed strikes from two new signings to avoid a most embarrassing defeat.
The Blues were left to count the cost of missed chances as, just like the opening day, the visitors found the decisive goal to render the effort from Everton meaningless by the final whistle
Everton return to Goodison Park this weekend to face Wolves for their second home game of the season still searching for their first goal and points of 2023-24.
The old Chinese proverb is very apt to what has gone on at Everton over the past few years
I wasn’t the gofer, but he had a relative who knew what the life of a gofer was all about. Dodgy dealings, enormous bank loans, tax evasion, false accountancy, bribery and underhand profit transfer theft was often carried out at his behest.
Should fans be dealing with these incredible hikes in kit prices? The answer is no.

Everton travel to Villa Park for their first away game of the season with Sean Dyche deciding that Dominic Calvert-Lewin, having completed his planned rehabilitation, is all set for Premier League action
It was clear years ago that serious change was required to make relegation battles a thing of the past but one shining light from the depths of despair may well just be the appointments of Sean Dyche and Kevin Thelwell
There's still time and there are still options out there to improve the playing squad before the transfer window deadline
A new season kicking off under a different manager than the one who began the last with hope rather than optimism this time that the club won’t be mired in a relegation dogfight come May… There has been change at Everton over the past 12 months and yet so much remains depressingly the same.
Everton start the new season at home to Fulham, with injuries eating into Sean Dyche's intent to start the campaign in the right way.
John Daley's latest Epistle to The Evertonians traces football, family and fatherhood through three generations of Goodison faith and godly misfortune.
