Entertainment… or survival?

Rob Jones
Posted 22/04/2024

What do you want for Everton? Entertainment… or survival? Sean Dyche's tactics don't allow for entertainment. I've heard a lot of that. We all have. Realistic, fair-minded people know that the squad at his disposal is... awful. ...

Gary McCarty
Posted 19/04/2024

Everton's summer transfer funds could likely be made up solely of any fees received from outgoing players. Off the back of the points deductions the club received this season, Sean Dyche will now have to tread carefully in the transfer market.&nbs...

Sean of all hope: You fooled me for a while

Kieran Kinsella
Posted 16/04/2024

I always thought Sean Dyche’s record at Burnley, considering the resources he had, was commendable. In our situation, I thought he was a pragmatic fit.   But even from the get-go, there were red flags I chose to overlook. Firstl...

When was the last time something really good happened to Everton?

Ben King
Posted 13/04/2024

Even the new ground is sullied with debt and queries about the future.  In a sense, you can see why everyone celebrated like mad avoiding relegation vs Palace two seasons ago; it wasn't just relief but, for a brief moment, we had a &l...

The responsibility of the players

Andy Crooks
Posted 12/04/2024

Never, in 25 years reading and contributing to this site, have I seen football sidelined so significantly. Commissions, lawyers and finance are, understandably, just taking over. It seems like there are two types of thread and the Chelsea v Everto...

I was wrong…

Rob Jones
Posted 02/04/2024

Months ago, Lyndon and Michael were kind enough to publish an article I wrote called Back to the Future, drunk on optimism following a (then) recent four-game winning run. It has n...

If you're not part of the problem you're part of the solution

GJ Butler
Posted 25/03/2024

For all the mentally exhausting talk of how FFP and PSR have ruined the game for many and forever more, I haven't yet read a solution that will make the game more competitive (while remaining sustainable). The current system failed miserab...

Ireland has a long-standing connection to Merseyside, with its people, culture and traditions shaping the economic and political history of the city. The links have been further strengthened by sport – a point evidenced by the number...

Whatever Happened to… What’s his name?

Clive Rogers
Posted 21/03/2024

Danny O'Neill’s recent Talking Point article about under-rated Everton players made me think about some of the many players we have signed under our current ownership who were most definitely over-rated. We all usually know what happens to p...

The relegation run-in

Robert  Tressell
Posted 18/03/2024

Sheff Utd and Burnley are already down.  It remains for Luton, Forest, Everton and Brentford to fight their way out of trouble. How are these teams shaping up? Well, the sadly significant thing to note is that we do not have t...

Everton lost the first Merseyside derby of the 2023/24 Premier League season in October as Liverpool netted two unanswered second-half goals in a 2-0 victory at Anfield.  Sean Dyche's side had thought they'd have a chance to repay the...

Mr Dyche, Do Us All a Favour and Put Captain Fantastic in the Team... at Right Midfield

Jim Wilson
Posted 06/03/2024

The team needs an injection of inspiration from somewhere. And we need to immediately pick ourselves up and go again. I am sure Seamus Coleman is one of the few players we have who can provide the inspiration the team needs, who will also ...

Kieran Kinsella
Posted 27/02/2024
