A Small Step in the Right Direction

Brighton & Hove Albion 1 - 1 Everton

Danny O’Neill
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.

The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Everton 1 - 2 Luton Town

Danny O’Neill
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.
28/01/2024

Not the worst thing

Everton 1 - 2 Luton Town

Crystal Palace 0 - 0 Everton

Gutted… Just gutted

Everton 1 - 1 Fulham [6 - 7 on Penalties]

11/12/2023

We Shall Not Be Moved

Everton 2 - 0 Chelsea

Lyndon Lloyd
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

11/11/2023

A fantastic road win again for the Dyche-ball demons

Crystal Palace 2 - 3 Everton

So Close to the Finish Line

Everton 1 - 1 Brighton

Danny O’Neill
06/11/2023

08/10/2023

Level Unlocked – Everton Finally Find Their Cutting Edge at Home

30/09/2023

Unrenewed Swagger

Aston Villa 1 - 2 Everton

28/09/2023

Everton lay down a marker with tenacious cup win at Villa

Aston Villa 1 - 2 Everton

17/09/2023

A Level Playing Field?

Paul Traill
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.
17/09/2023

Poor Everton did well to lose by just one goal

The Merry-Go-Round from Hell

Round and round and round we go. A change in manager, a couple of new players. Hope followed by disappointment then humiliation and despair. This is the lot for Evertonians, it seems.

Plus ça change…

Everton 0 - 1 Fulham

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
12/08/2023

Criminal incompetence in front of goal costs Everton dear
