The Stuff of Dreams

Lyndon Lloyd
On a transcendent afternoon at Goodison Park, Everton served up moment after memorable moment in their humbling of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City
16/01/2017

From My Seat: Man City (H)

Ken Buckley
Final whistle and the rendition of ‘If yer know yer ‘Istory’ was deafening. In that second half the bear pit was back at Goodison
15/01/2017

Our best performance since...?

Paul Traill
We were just awesome. Can anyone tell me when we last played this well?
15/01/2017

Fantastic young Blues roast City and Stones

Michael Kenrick
Everton took the lead through a sweet move started by Davies, Lukaku powering home, Mirallas doubling the lead just after the break, victory assured in superb style by Davies, finished off by debutant Lookman.
15/01/2017

Just when things were looking up

Paul Traill
We were poor today. We could have done with an easier fixture to kick off our campaign, such as Plymouth Argyle at home let's say, but we got the home draw against a team we're above in the league so it's difficult to whinge too much really.
08/01/2017

From My Seat: Leicester City (FA Cup)

Ken Buckley
A big disappointment to us all and on the way out the talk was of the board getting in our transfer targets quickly.
07/01/2017

Blues mugged by Foxes after taking the lead

Michael Kenrick
Sub Deulofeu set it on a plate for Lukaku but that only inspired a shocking brace from Foxes sub Ahmed Musa, ends Everton's FA Cup campaign before it had started.
07/01/2017

From My Seat: Southampton (H)

Ken  Buckley
Ken's view on the 3-0 win that kicked off 2017 on a positive note.

Valencia the difference as Everton ring in the New Year with victory

Lyndon Lloyd
The Ecuadorian's introduction may have been decisive but there were encouraging performances from Ross Barkley and Tom Davies as the Blues equalled their best league win under Ronald Koeman.
02/01/2017

When the Blues cheer you up, they really cheer you up!

Paul Traill
A flattering 3-0 victory finalises a good Christmas period. Though our draw at Hull City was disappointing, the seven points haul out of the available nine is not to be sniffed at.
02/01/2017

Clinical Blues finishing destroys Saints resistance

Michael Kenrick
Ronald Koeman named a youthful line-up but Calvert-Lewin had to go off early and the Blues struggled until Valencia replaced Lennon and scored off a rebound. Followed by a perfect Baines penalty and a classic Lukaku rocket.
02/01/2017

Everton end 2016 with frustration still in tow

Lyndon Lloyd
It’s somewhat fitting that a year characterised by frustration should end with another infuriating Everton performance and two more dropped points against one of the poorest sides in the Premier League.
30/12/2016

Blues made to work hard for a point

Michael Kenrick
The Blues had to come back twice with Barkley grabbing tieing the game to gain a point against a lowly Hull City at the KCOM stadium tonight
30/12/2016

Oh what fun it is to see Everton finally win away again

Lyndon Lloyd
As victories go, this one was sorely needed. It wasn’t pretty, especially in a dour first half, and neither was it completely convincing but Ronald Koeman’s side rediscovered some important aspects of their makeup and their play on their travels that could once again form the foundations of a charge for the European places.
26/12/2016

From My Seat: Leicester City (A)

Ken Buckley
Not the best game you will ever see I didn’t meet a fan who doesn’t take a win first and if the icing can be added then fine but, for a fans' peace of mind i'ts always the win. I always want to win with silky joined up stuff but if I had to choose between the two... well?
26/12/2016

Smash and grab at the Champions' lair

Michael Kenrick
Everton took the lead after the break, a punt from Robles converted by Mirallas, and Lukaku finished it off brilliantly in stoppage time.
26/12/2016

The Last Reserves of Patience

Lyndon Lloyd
Evertonians are rightly growing restless at the slow pace of change under Ronald Koeman and the absence of genuine football being played under his stewardship but there is little option for fans but to draw on their dwindling reserves of patience and hope things come good in 2017.
20/12/2016

From My Seat: Liverpool (H)

Ken Buckley
"How could we play like that second half?" was going around my head. But, as a long standing attendee of Goodison derbies, it certainly isn’t my first. These are games like no other but I just wish we could have a few where we are the ones scraping the win, regardless of how the teams play.
20/12/2016

No Let-Up in Everton's Derby Pain

Lyndon Lloyd
The fight was there but the quality was desperately lacking as Liverpool plundered a stoppage-time goal at Goodison Park
19/12/2016

Yet More Derby Misery

Paul Traill
I wish we could just abandon this fixture such is our pitiful record. I expect defeat every time now and just can't wait for that patronising head nod "unlucky mate" wince from my Liverpool FC supporting colleagues tomorrow. Happy bloody Christmas.
19/12/2016

Last ditch disaster for defeated Blues

Michael Kenrick
Ronald Koeman makes one changes to the side that started against Arsenal, bringing Ramiro Funes Mori in to replace the suspended Phil Jagielka.
19/12/2016

Arsenal vanquished amid the roar of Fortress Goodison

Lyndon Lloyd
Everton finally came up with a response to weeks of under-performance with a spirited performance under the lights to hand Arsene Wenger his first Premier League defeat for four months.
14/12/2016

As Howard once said...

Paul Traill
What a game and what a night. Now that's the rot stopped. Let's do it again next Monday and turn this season around.
14/12/2016

On Tour in London with Everton

Tony Onslow
As reigning champions of the Football League, Everton travelled to London and played their first match against Arsenal in 1891.
13/12/2016

Fine effort to beat Gunners under the lights

Michael Kenrick
A very nervy start, a silly free-kick given away, and Everton were punished by Sanchez. Coleman equalized off a Baines cross before half-time. The a late header from Williams off a Barkley corner sealed a fine win.
13/12/2016

Everton in free-fall with fourth consecutive away defeat

Lyndon Lloyd
A mess from back to front, Everton extended their miserable run to 10 games with a solitary win and continue their slide towards the bottom half of the table
10/12/2016

Blues fightback fails to beat Hornets

Michael Kenrick
Lukaku puts Everton ahead with a neat opening goal but a brilliant Okaka finish beats Stekelenburg, followed by two quick goals off set pieces.
10/12/2016

Consistently Inconsistent

Lyndon Lloyd
Yannick Bolasie's ACL hammer blow has sharpened focus on the three remaining wingers whom Koeman has been rotating for weeks searching for reliability
08/12/2016

From My Seat: Man United (H)

Ken Buckley
an get the ground looking great but yet can’t fix the escalators on the top balcony. Most people seemed happy enough with the result but a few moans about the style of play. I reckon we can play any style the manager wants so long as we show improvement and gain the confidence to play with a fluidity that will not only be better on the eye but more importantly bring more wins. In football confidence is a very big thing.
05/12/2016

Baines rescues point in bruising encounter

Paul Traill
t full-time we had to be pleased with a point given it looked so bleak earlier in the game. Hopefully that is the spark we need to re-ignite our faltering campaign.
04/12/2016

Baines penalty rescues undeserved point

Michael Kenrick
Reckless Stekelenburg abandoned his goalline allowing Ibrahimovic to lob in a bizarre opening goal. Baines Equalized from the spot in the final minute.
04/12/2016

Everton's impotence reaches galling levels in defeat at Southampton

Lyndon Lloyd
Koeman has big problems on his hands. His team lacks any fluidity, cutting edge or genuine battling spirit and he has a striker whom he proclaims to be among the best in Europe toiling away with barely any support in a role to which he just isn’t accustomed.
28/11/2016

Blues beaten in the first minute

Michael Kenrick
Everton were blown away from the kick-off with Southampton swarming at them, stealing the ball twice and scoring inside the first minute.
27/11/2016

The Oxford Blues of Everton Football Club

Tony Onslow
Many of the early adherents to association football in the south of England played the game for love and not money and some of them ended up playing for Everton via Oxford University

Koeman to mastermind Toffees victory against former club Southampton

Gary McCarty
Given time, Koeman could get Everton back to their best – and that means competing for European football. For now the Toffees need to take it one game at a time in order to rebuild.

Patrick Murphy

Koeman may need fresh approach to solve lingering problems

Lyndon Lloyd
The upcoming transfer windows may provide opportunity to resolve some deep-seated issues but in the meanwhile it's incumbent upon the manager to try something different.

With Everton at Great Lever

Tony Onslow
The short and somewhat acrimonious history of Everton's match-ups with one of their early opponents in Lancashire
22/11/2016

From My Seat: Swansea City (H)

Ken Buckley
It’s strange watching Everton at the moment and I think it stems from a change of manager and a few decent results early doors giving fans a hope that may just not be there at the moment.
20/11/2016

Coleman saves face but more questions than answers remain

Lyndon Lloyd
Koeman's Everton remain unconvincing going forward as the Dutchman's struggles to find a reliable combination continue
20/11/2016

Blues leave it late to save a point

Michael Kenrick
Jagielka gives away yet another penalty and this time Stekelenburg cannot save him. Coleman equalizes very late on.
19/11/2016

Straight Talk and Candour are Part of the Koeman Package

Alan Myers
Freelance broadcaster and former Director of Communications at Everton, Alan Myers, says that Ronald Koeman has used is recent proclamations to send a message, in my opinion, to his players, the fans and probably more importantly to Farhad Moshiri that he is serious about being successful.
18/11/2016

The Bitter End

Pete Jones
Everton Heritage Society's Pete Jones marks the 100th anniversary of the end of five months of carnage at the Somme with his fourth and final account for ToffeeWeb of the links between Everton and the First World War's most infamous battle.

Jack Cock – Scorer, Singer, Soldier, Superstar

Rob Sawyer
Relatively few Cornishmen have represented Everton but several have left their mark on Merseyside. However, the most remarkable life story is that of Jack Cock: international footballer, team manager, war hero and star of stage and screen.
18/11/2016

James Gourley of Everton and Morton

Tony Onslow
The Scot played 54 times for Everton after joining the club in 1909 before going to to forge an impressive career back north of the border with Morton
14/11/2016

Koeman's Detachment Will Mean Little If He Brings Blues Success

Lyndon Lloyd
The manager's "cold fish" demeanour may be something Evertonians will have to accept as a necessary part of the club's attempts to take the next big step forward.
10/11/2016

Bolasie is improving at Everton but is it enough?

Gary McCarty
Can Ronald Koeman get the most out of his mercurial £30m buy?
10/11/2016

Moshiri's Music for Evertonian Ears

Lyndon Lloyd
Farhad speaks! The conduit may have again been Jim White but the 13-minute chat was candid, revealing and should be hugely encouraging for Everton supporters.

Fireworks are all Chelsea's as Everton are destroyed at Stamford Bridge

Lyndon Lloyd
In a painful illustration of the Blues' short-comings, Ronald Koeman's side were dismantled by an irresistible Chelsea side.
06/11/2016

Bonfire Night Roasting at the Bridge

Michael Kenrick
Ronald Koeman's side were left badly burnt as Chelsea lit up Stamford Bridge like a bonfire with a scalding display of consummate football.
05/11/2016

From My Seat: West Ham Utd (H)

Ken Buckley
A good day out and I was delighted to see Barkley at last start to look like the player many forecast he would become and I can but hope he comes good for the rest of the season. Coming off the ground it was Lukaku and Barkley who were on most people’s lips. I must give a mention for Oviedo as he seems to be improving with the game time he is getting. I hope Ron sticks with him awhile; he can get better still, I reckon.
30/10/2016

Yes, Ross!

Paul Traill
Though nervy at times we were resolute in the second half and did well to stand firm from a series of corners. We were however dangerous on the counter attack and this is how we sealed the game when two of our most impressive performers on the day combined to hammer the death nail for West Ham United.
30/10/2016

Barkley more confident in vital Blues win

Michael Kenrick
Excellent work by Bolasie gave Lukaku his usual goal against the Hammers. Barkley made it two off Lukaku's pinpoint cross.
30/10/2016

Superiority counts for nothing as fortune favours Burnley

Lyndon Lloyd
Despite dominating their hosts, Everton suffered a bitter defeat at Burnley and another check to the early-season optimism under Ronald Koeman.
23/10/2016

From My Seat: Burnley (A)

Ken Buckley
A game that will take some forgetting but all we can do is hope that Big Ron and his staff can work wonders with what we have now and try to strengthen window by window. On today’s showing we are a few players short even for the short term.
22/10/2016

Late goal defeats a determined a Everton display

Michael Kenrick
Burnley went ahead off a soft goal after it looked like Everton were taking control of the game. Bolasie stole the ball off Lukaku to equalize with a great shot but the visitors could not get the second, yet Burnley did in the final minute.
22/10/2016

The Good Doctor of Everton, Part II

Tony Onslow
After many years of searching, I finally managed to find a newspaper report confirming the last resting place of the Everton benefactor Dr James Clement Baxter.
17/10/2016

Koeman comes close to putting one over old pal Pep

Lyndon Lloyd
For a few tantalising minutes of this game, a stunning victory beckoned Everton following Romelu Lukaku’s excellent break-away goal. Unfortunately, Ronald Koeman’s side hadn’t caught City on an off day they were punished for one of the rare occasions where they afforded David Silva too much room and left substitute Nolito unmarked to plunder the equaliser.
16/10/2016

From My Seat: Manchester City (A)

Ken Buckley
All told, a great day out. Coming off the ground, I somehow felt we are turning a corner and from conversations held, so are some others.
15/10/2016

Heroic saves from Stekelenburg deny City

Michael Kenrick
Honours even after immense City pressure, Everton took the lead despite two penalties, brilliantly saved by Stekelenburg, but Nolito stole a point for the home side.
15/10/2016

Does Koeman have room yet for Everton's youngbloods?

Lyndon Lloyd
Is too much being made of Ronald Koeman's apparent aversion to using young players so far or is he merely focusing on beefing up in the short term what was a struggling, unfit squad with robust, experienced players?
13/10/2016

Everton and KitAid

Rob Sawyer for EFC Heritage Society
Thanks to an act of generosity in a time of adversity, a corner of Malawi, 5,000 miles from Goodison Park, will be forever Everton.

An Evening in the Bosom of the Everton Family

Lyndon Lloyd
There can be few venues as majestic and grandiose for a gathering of Evertonians than Liverpool Cathedral, the splendid setting for a very special dinner hosted by Dr David France and his lovely wife Elizabeth to mark the launch of his new book, Everton Crazy
04/10/2016

Stunned momentum leaves taste of frustration for international break

Paul Traill
Before kick-off, I was lucky enough to be asked along to Carling In Off The Bar – a show which aired on YouTube by Sky Sports presented by Adam Smith and Laura Woods. The show airs every Friday night game and is set in a pub in the city of the home team, this being MacKenzie's Whisky Bar on Rodney Street in Liverpool. I brought Ste along for the entertainment and free Carling.

Food for thought for Koeman as Everton have to settle for Palace draw

Lyndon Lloyd
The ingredients for a stirring return to winning ways against Palace were certainly there — a packed house under the lights at Goodison Park – but a lack of guile and a shortage of quick, incisive passing moves left the Blues looking a little one-dimensional
01/10/2016

Book Review: Everton Crazy

Lyndon Lloyd
Interspersed with some wonderful comic gags, Everton Crazy charts the twists and turns of Dr David France’s life, with the ups and downs of the club he fell in love with serving as an ever-present anchor, focus and obsession.
27/09/2016

Just when we dared to dream a little…

Lyndon Lloyd
A shocking performance at Bournemouth caps a chastening week where supporter expectations will have been realigned and sights will have been lowered.
23/09/2016

Blues poor in defeat on the south coast.

Michael Kenrick
Barkley starts but Everton were too relaxed at the back and allowed Stanislas to fire in what would be the winning goal.
24/09/2016

Everton's reality check will have been instructive for Koeman

Lyndon Lloyd
Everton's early exit from the League Cup was as familiar as it was frustrating but the manager will hopefully have learned a lot about his squad as he continues to settle into the Goodison hot-seat.
21/09/2016

The Burden of the Past

Jim Keoghan
The struggles under Roberto Martinez last season brought back painful memories of the 1990s and the very early 2000s. With a new manager in Ronald Koeman, a new de facto owner in Farhad Moshiri, and talk of a new stadium, can Evertonians now look ahead to a new chapter and think again about what the Toffees can become?
21/09/2016

From My Seat: Norwich City (H)

Ken Buckley
On 74 mins, we all realised our goose was well and truly cooked when Josh Murphy cut inside unchallenged and from some distance fired a beaut into the top corner of the Park End net. This was the cue for a mass exodus as great numbers of the faithful had well and truly had enough. We were brought back down to earth after Big Ron’s first defeat.
21/09/2016

The League Cup wait goes on

Paul Traill
The defeat would feel much worse had we not have started the season so brightly. Let's be a little pragmatic also – on another day, it could have been different.
20/09/2016

From My Seat: Middlesbrough (H)

Ken Buckley
Overall a good day out and we've now made the best start we have had in the Premier League years. I hope all this means something and we win something.
18/09/2016

Never go downstairs early

Paul Traill
"With half time beckoning I felt that I could join a few of the fellas for a half time drink and went down just after Coleman scored. I wasn't expecting to miss another goal of course and though delighted Everton have scored, you find yourself a bit cheesed off to have missed the goal."
18/09/2016

Everton's resolve clearly evident on a day to remember for Barry

Lyndon Lloyd
Everton brushed off an awful decision by Lee Mason to allow Middlesbrough to take the lead after 20 minutes, turned the match on its head and and had it effectively won by half-time.
18/09/2016

Barry leads the charge to consolidate 2nd place

Michael Kenrick
A controversial goal for Negredo, heading the ball out of Stekelenburg's hands, but Gareth Barry equalizes!!! More goals from Coleman & Lukaku before the break.
17/09/2016

Lukaku catches fire as Everton torch Moyes's Sunderland

Lyndon Lloyd
What a difference four months make when it comes to analysing the contrast between the Everton that trooped off the field at the Stadium of Light just six Premier League games ago having been soundly beaten and the one that romped in the second half this evening to a handsome 3-0 victory.
13/09/2016

If You Know Your History… Matchdays with EFC Heritage Society

Rob  Sawyer
The Church of St Luke The Evangelist – better known as St Luke’s – is where the EFC Heritage Society (EFCHS), founded in 2008, has been welcoming home and away supporters for the past two seasons.

Lyndon Lloyd
David France's celebration of the men who have made significant contributions to the development, welfare and success of Everton Football Club and returns with four new inductees who will be selected by you, the fans, and then officially added to the pantheon of Blues greats at the next Hall of Fame Dinner in March 2017.

Pals

Pete Jones
The story of a battalion of friends from the same office who fought shoulder to shoulder for the honour of Britain and the credit of Liverpool during World War I and their connection to Everton.
04/09/2016

Impressive youth development another burgeoning facet of Everton’s bright future

Matt Jones
Everton now reportedly possess the capital that can help them recruit a high calibre of player but, for a club still striving to bridge the gap to the genuine juggernauts of the of the English game, it’s imperative the path from the Academy to the first-team is clear.
01/09/2016

No Sense Dwelling on Everton's Window of Missed Opportunity

Lyndon Lloyd
By leaving so much important business so late, yesterday's deadline was, in the context of high expectations, hugely disappointing for many Evertonians but there is still enough talent in Koeman's squad to propel the Blues to the next transfer window
01/09/2016

Nat, King of Goals...and Bowls

Rob Sawyer (EFC Heritage Society)
The life of Jimmy “Nat” Cunliffe whose achievements, like those of many players at Goodison in the 1930s, were overshadowed by the Everton giant that is W.R. Dean. Yet his life in sport was a remarkable one.
29/08/2016

Everton benefit from questionable new directive

Paul Traill
On opportunities alone you would say we deserved the win though it did come with quite a slice of luck.
28/08/2016

Restored fortitude helps Everton secure a second successive win

Lyndon Lloyd
Everton could, and probably should, have won by a wider margin than 1-0 but it was their more formidable rearguard that helped them secure three valuable points in a match that might easily have got away from them under the previous regime.
28/08/2016

From My Seat: Stoke City (H)

Ken Buckley
I was satisfied with the collective as there is no doubt we are heading the right way but patience will be needed by all whilst the manager and his staff work through the assembly of a team capable of being in the mix season upon season.
27/08/2016

New-look Blues hold on for a vital win

Michael Kenrick
After a fine first half ended goalless, Everton went ahead off a fortuitous penalty that was converted via the post and Given's head.
27/08/2016

Highs, Lows and Bakayokos — Wimbledon 1994

Jim Keoghan
Football is a game that is defined by moments; key points where a match, a career or a season can take a different turn due to a piece of luck, a dodgy refereeing decision or an instance of individual brilliance. For Everton, two moments that would greatly impact upon the club’s future fortunes occurred in the space of mere minutes in that almost fateful game against Wimbledon in May 1994.
24/08/2016

Comfortable if not entirely convincing

Paul Traill
The 4-0 scoreline certainly put some gloss on the scoresheet, and though we have to be satisfied with a comfortable victory and safe passage into the Third Round, we can certainly make more of our opportunities in and around the penalty area.
24/08/2016

Koeman's Change in Tack Reaps Rewards for Everton

Lyndon Lloyd
How refreshing to see an Everton manager not only have options on the bench but to also have the courage to use them regardless of the stage of the match.
21/08/2016

From My Seat: West Bromwich Albion (A)

Ken Buckley
Four points from two games and just a glimpse of how we might evolve under this management. I liked the way the game was approached in that you can have possession football but not exclusively, it can be wrapped in direct no-nonsense stuff depending upon circumstance, a win being the ultimate goal.
20/08/2016

Influential changes from Koeman clinch victory

Paul Traill
A great result and it's great to have that positive feeling back. Actually, when did we last have it? So what have we learnt so far about Ronald Koeman? Well I like that he isn't one to wait. Koeman's willingness to change what he doesn't like and react to situations is very refreshing, and without his bullishness, we would not have won this game.
20/08/2016

Superb Everton grab three vital points

Michael Kenrick
Everton were stunned by an early goal for West Brom off a corner, but came back superbly to win a very tough battle with goals from Mirallas and Barry.
20/08/2016

Bolasie's high-priced wizardry can bring 'x' factor to Everton

Lyndon Lloyd
As explosive and dazzling as he can be enigmatic and defeasible, Yannick Bolasie will be nothing if not unpredictable. His price tag may have been high but by taking the step up to Everton, the French-born winger has the ideal stage on which to shine.
16/08/2016

Goodison Park is BACK!

Paul Traill
Whilst the game was a real challenge and the result was one we would have taken prior to kick off, the mood was very positive after the game as we sunk a few beers in the city centre. We have to accept that the season is going to be a learning curve as we adapt from one style to the next and get the players fitness up to scratch.
14/08/2016

Gueye shines in promising dawn of Koeman era

Lyndon Lloyd
While important, the enormous psychological boost of avoiding defeat could prove to be more important in the long run — an injury-hide side shorn of their top goalscorer and running at 70% capacity managed to hold off one of the teams likely to be challenging in the top four this season through a combination of discipline, tenacity and sheer hard work, a far cry from a few months ago when Goodison was enveloped in despair.
14/08/2016

From My Seat: Tottenham Hotspur (H)

Ken Buckley
A good day out and a game that left this fan quite optimistic that an upturn in fortunes is a possibility with this new manager. The walk back to our watering hole was pleasant today as most seemed happy and thought we could progress. I sincerely hope so.
13/08/2016

Blues hang on for a point after early Barkley goal

Michael Kenrick
Barkley ggot Everton off to a great start with a goal in the first 5 minutes but Spurs came back strongly as the Blues tired.
13/08/2016

Profit over promise for Everton as Stones gets his move

Lyndon Lloyd
Fewer Evertonians will shed a tear as John Stones leaves for the “greener pastures” of the Eithad Stadium than would have a year ago. It will still gnaw at the gut, however, that fans won’t get to see if Stones could blossom into the Everton defensive legend many believe he could have become.
09/08/2016

A Bit of a Coincidence

Pete Jones
A lot of people who visit the First World War battlefields talk about curious, even strange experiences. However, one coincidence makes one wonder sometimes. It is a story about two sportsmen and two letters with the backdrop of the terrible events of July 1916. It even has a link to a famous hostelry on Goodison Road. The coincidence is remarkable and can perhaps be interpreted as more than mere chance.
01/08/2016

Kevin Mirallas Must Take Responsibility for his Own Everton Future

Matt Jones
Ronald Koeman has shown a precedent for assisting players of Mirallas’s ilk and can add the functional base to the winger’s skill set that was lacking under his predecessor. But, for a player who has so many natural gifts, the time has come for him to seize control of his own destiny at Goodison Park.

Archibald Leitch – The Man Who Shaped Goodison Park

Rob Sawyer (EFC Heritage Society)

Restlessness setting in but Everton's new dawn needs time to break

Lyndon Lloyd
The new Premier League season still feels a long way off but in others it’s alarmingly close given how little transfer action there has been at Finch Farm. It's hard not to get impatient but the sea changes occurring at Everton at the moment need time to play out.
