Fans as scouts?

Sam Hoare
Posted 28/04/2017

I just had a crazy idea. Not for the first time. I was about to post something on one of the rumour threads when it occurred to me how many Everton fans there are who (like me) spend hours and hours watching football matches, other than Everton on...

Ross for sale but not Rom?

Gerard McKean
Posted 26/04/2017

Over the last 6 or 7 years, Everton have become a real “smoke and mirrors” outfit – we never quite know what’s real and what’s not. Of course there is a need for discretion and we were once renowned for the club’s stealth in signing ne...

Rob Madigan
Posted 26/04/2017

ESCLA along with EitC present 'Everton in the Capital' Charity Casino

To thank our London-based blues, we at ESCLA have decided to have an event before our last London game every season beginning with our final league match ...

Where is Gana?

David Pearl
Posted 26/04/2017

Having been substituted in the last 2 games you might think its only just come to my attention... but he seems to have lost his mojo since returning from the AFCON. It might be his partnership with Morgan. Perhaps he is missing Barry. Or is it tha...

Romelu Lukaku – Real Deal or the Cherry on the Cake?

Carl Waldron
Posted 24/04/2017

With the astronomical and ever-increasing fee for Romelu Lukaku being touted in the press and Ronald Koeman’s stated desire to keep him at the club, I began to think about how important he is to the team.

I must confess, I began my musings thi...

What happened to Easter football?

David Flint
Posted 17/04/2017

Remember them playing games Saturday and Monday during the Easter weekend?

I could just leave the article at that and let the message boards do the rest.Seriously, though, since 2007 we’ve only played a double-header at Easter once (in 20...

An Ideal Summer

Martin Clark
Posted 17/04/2017

With the season end fast approaching we start to wonder what we might need to take the next step and get into the Champions League.

If it wasn't for our poor run towards the start of the season we may of actually made it this year suggesting that...

Atletico's new stadium

Adrian Evans
Posted 16/04/2017

Dear all, a Toffee since 1962, aged 8. I am definitely dead-set against an athletics track around our new stadium pitch. Never, ever... we are used to being close to the pitch, giving a great intimate intimidating atmosphere... I'd rather stay at...

The Barkley Dilemma

Steve Hogan
Posted 10/04/2017

The yob who punched Ross Barkley in the face on Sunday night, in what was a completely unprovoked attack, might have just been enough to tip the player into thinking about a move in the summer?

The goldfish bowl that can be living on Merseyside at ...

Lukaku vs Rooney vs ??

Andy Osborne
Posted 08/04/2017

Lukaku is not signing a new contract and is probably off to Chelsea at the end of the season. My initial opinion is if he doesn't want to play for us, sell him and spend the money on someone else. But who? Strong rumours that Rooney could be heading ...

John Keating
Posted 06/04/2017

I am just wondering if we have possibly jumped the gun on getting rid of Niasse.

I do not for one minute mean as a replacement for Lukaku, but is he any worse than Valencia or Kone as our back-up striker?

It appears that having been given a run a...

Stadium vs Squad

Kieran Fitzgerald
Posted 03/04/2017

There has been a lot of talk this season about it being a period of transition, both on and off the pitch.

Off the pitch, naming rights for the training ground, the binding together of our loans into a single interest-free one by Moshiri, a...

A New Stadium – A New Era

Kevin  Tully
Posted 02/04/2017

It's easy to get caught up in the 'sentimentality' of our home of 125 years. Some people outside L4 love to wax lyrical and look upon Goodison Park as "The last proper football stadium."

Personally, no matter how many great memories I have ...

Bricks and Mortar

Alasdair Mackay
Posted 27/03/2017

In the days just before the Coleman injury and the nonsense with Lukaku's contract my daily Everton time was spent contemplating Bramley Moore Dock.

I remember my Dad used to park outside it when he would take me and my sisters down to the Sund...

Who's in for a prediction?

Bob Parrington
Posted 22/03/2017

Just going through the fixture lists of the top 7 as it stands now, who is up for a prediction of the season placings and points?

Let me start. It'd be good to catch up for a beer before a game when I'm over from Oz in September.

Summer 2017 Transfer Window

Robert Claxson
Posted 18/03/2017

Ronald Koeman said that it will take - amongst many other things - several transfer windows for the "Everton Project" to get to the level of success he wants.
The changes to the playing staff that he's made so far are very encouraging and there a...

Gary Russell
Posted 17/03/2017

Whether the Belgium lump stays or not, a striker has been needed for quite a while as we all know. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is now fit, so surely, seeing as we bought him and he has already been picked (the game he was injured), he should be ahead of Va...

50 years since the great Cup derby

David Shaw
Posted 13/03/2017

The weekend just gone saw the 50-year anniversary of one of the greatest Merseyside derby events there's ever been, with a massive crowd of 64,851 at Goodison Park to watch Alan Ball scoring the winner, putting us thorough to the 6th Round of the ...

Everton's Commitment of Care

Robin Cannon
Posted 08/03/2017

I read a sad article in The Guardian today about Stan Bowles, who's suffering from full onset Alzheimer's:

An afternoon with Stan Bowles: the twinkl...

Performing under pressure

Thomas Lennon
Posted 18/02/2017

We have long protested that our team has folded on big occasions. Away to the top 5, home to one in particular, in cup matches, especially the later stages and finals. Any time we find ourselves above our customary 7th place, whenever we have want...
