Richi’s return?

David Cooper
Posted 23/05/2024

Newspaper rumours have Spurs ready to get rid of Richarlison. Hampered by Kane and Son, and then a spate of injuries, Richi has not reached the heights nor the adulation of fans as he did in his Everton years. So I ask you these questions: ...

60 or 30 or something else?

David Peate
Posted 23/05/2024

As it is the close season and football is at a standstill, I thought I would reflect on the noise that the Everton fans have generated at home matches in the past.  I have it on good authority that the loudest noise made by Evertonian...

Andrew Ellams

Another media horror show

Rob Jones
Posted 20/05/2024

On Saturday, the Premier League released a brief clip of the "story of the season", oddly omitting any positive Everton contribution to the season, and ignoring their heinous assault on us as a club via unprecedented points deductions for PSR. So ...

Sell to buy

Frank Wolfe
Posted 20/05/2024

Assuming that we need to sell some of our prized assets in order to bring in any new players and pay off debt, who do people think we should sacrifice?  The most obvious saleable candidates (to me anyway) are Pickford, Branthwaite, On...

Final-day showdown on Sky Sports?

Michael Kenrick
Posted 15/05/2024

Looking forward to the final weekend of this largely horrible season for us in the Premier League, it seems that Arsenal will still have a chance to become Champions, however small. It should mean a great day for the loyal band of away sup...

Player sales would not be a disaster for Everton – if ownership situation is resolved

Gary McCarty
Posted 15/05/2024

With uncertainty continuing to swirl around the club, it is little wonder that Everton fans are fearing a mass exodus of players out of Goodison Park this summer. Manager Sean Dyche has tried to settle their nerves by saying key players wo...

Eric Myles
Posted 12/05/2024

A couple of things I found about Pat Nevin, formerly of this parish. While not about his time with us they give an idea of the man behind the footballer: ...

Last game at Goodison Park and the first game at the new stadium

John Flood
Posted 12/05/2024

Next season will be our last at our iconic old stadium, and we all know the last game played there next May is going to be full of emotions all round. With that in mind, I think the club ought to approach the Premier League to see if our final hom...

Who cuts the blue ribbon?

Paul Kossoff
Posted 10/05/2024

Who would you have to cut the blue ribbon for the new Everton Stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock? There are many famous Evertonians we could choose from to welcome us to our new home but, even though I'm not a royalist, my choice would be Princ...

Tough, you're just not invited!

Trevor Powell
Posted 09/05/2024

With a year to go before Everton play a competitive match at the new Everton Stadium, I was feeling a bit bitter and petty… thinking who should not be "invited" to this opener. So here is my list of non-invitees: Rich...

How many points is a top player worth?

Jay Harris
Posted 08/05/2024

Amid the ongoing concerns about PSR, the takeover, administration and having to sell players, a thought struck me… Much has been made of having to sell Jarrad Brandthwaite to avoid another points deduction next season but I want to ...

Just Saying

David Peate
Posted 28/04/2024

Supporting Everton for over 80 years has had its fair share of ups and downs.  The 1950s brought the greatest disappointment to me but this was soon overcome by the success of the 1960s.   Time at Goodison has been miserable of r...

The other 14

Rob Dolby
Posted 26/04/2024

I'm not sure if I am alone with this opinion but I am getting fed up with the endless articles about us having to sell our best players to satisfy PSR. It feels like we have been trying to conform since Ancelotti left. Selling a world...
