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...

Could history repeat itself?

Kevin Tully
Posted 16/02/2017

Goodison Park, 20 April 2014. The day David Moyes took charge of Manchester United, the reigning Champions of England, for the last time. In the crowd, a man dressed as 'The Grim Reaper' waved his scythe behind old Moyesie. After eight short months,...

The true Goodison effect

Dean  Johnson
Posted 12/02/2017

Goodison. From days long past to the present day, we have always been proud to call Goodison Park our home. Now it seems our destiny lies on a different path in a different stadium.

The significance of a new owner, a new manager and more important...

Realistic signings in the summer

Gareth Clark
Posted 07/02/2017

If we make top 6 (or qualify for the Europa League through Manchester United finishing ahead of us and winning the EFL cup), what realistic signings can we expect in the summer window?

With the primary positions being: Goalkeeper, Centre Back (one...

The Lukaku Conundrum

Steve Hogan
Posted 05/02/2017

Okay, I'll nail my colour's to the mast straight away, I'm a BIG Rom fan. In the four years he's been with us, however, I've heard him labelled by our fans as lazy, fat, not a team player, arrogant, and a few other choice phrases I can't repeat o...

Will Lukaku sign a new contract?

Pete Ward
Posted 27/01/2017

Does anyone else think that Lukaku will be off at the end of the season?

What was the point of his agent coming out and saying a new contract is 99 percent agreed a few months back if he was never going to sign it?

Initially I thought a new contr...

Are you going to the big fight?

David Peate
Posted 25/01/2017

There are memorable occasions at Goodison Park which do not necessarily relate directly to football itself.

One that I call to mind is is of people saying, ‘Are you going to the big fight today?’ This was the question whenever Bolton Wander...

Our new second favourite team

Steve Ferns
Posted 24/01/2017

With the signing of Lescott, Moyes now has 4 old boys with Rodwell, Pienaar, and Anichebe already there.

People seem greatly amused by this on message boards and Twitter. But as Evertonians, does this make us not want to get behind Sunderland, ...

Europa League, again.

Andy Crooks
Posted 23/01/2017

We have a chance to qualify for the Europa League. Some Evertonians don't like the idea. I see their point but, in my view, it is short-sighted. Will a Europa League campaign cost us Champions League football? Who knows; what I do think, though, is t...

New contracts

Habib Erkan Jr
Posted 22/01/2017

Any news on the Lukaku and Barkley contract extensions?

I recall in December Romelu’s agent announcing his new contract to be 99.9% but have heard nothing since.

More troubling is the lack of action on Barkley. The club announced in Decembe...

Graham Holliday
Posted 20/01/2017

I just wanted to post a few words about our shape and system in recent weeks. Given so much has been said about the performances of some individuals, I think it’s worth mentioning how the players are asked to play as this has probably been just as ...

Decades: the '70s

Graham Mockford
Posted 19/01/2017

Now this all started as a drunken night in the pub as a lot of the best arguments often do.

My brother and I were talking about the best Everton players we have ever seen. Both of us started watching in the 70s so we ended up discussing it b...

Winds of change at Goodison

Steve Hogan
Posted 19/01/2017

Anyone who doubted the impact of the arrival of our new majority shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, only has to look at the current transfer window to realise that the wind of change is blowing through every aspect of Goodison Park.

Koeman's pre...

Giants battle over Deulofeu

Peter Fearon
Posted 17/01/2017

The future of Gerard Deulofeu seems to be a lot more complex than is being reported in the British media. It seems that this stylish and creative player, mysteriously surplus to requirements at Goodison, is in the midst of a tug of war between gia...

Everton Superheroes

Andy Bulmer
Posted 17/01/2017

Following the news regarding our new possible sponsors, the first thing I did was to look for the logo and imagine what it would look like on the famous Royal Blue jersey.<...

The rest of the season...

Andy Crooks
Posted 11/01/2017

After last Saturday, I thought our season was dead. With hindsight, I believe it is very much alive.

Koeman now has space. We will not be relegated; he will not be sacked; he has time to work. It looks likely that we will have three new signings a...

What would represent a successful transfer window?

Brian Williams
Posted 09/01/2017

It's obvious to anyone with half a brain that we require several quality additions during the January window. The FA Cup defeat to Leicester reinforced what we all know and that's that our midfield is lacking in almost every aspect. Limited creativit...

Schneiderlin or Schneiderout- the acid test for Moshiri

Jonathan Tasker
Posted 08/01/2017

Trying to digest the disaster of yesterday, the BBC’s Phil McNulty made some very wry observations on Everton’s transfer policies.

He pointed out that Leicester had anticipated that their team would need strengthening whilst the core of ...

Koeman: Out of the January window

Peter Fearon
Posted 07/01/2017

It's the January window and Koeman should exit through it.

Too early to judge? I don't think so. You don't expect instant success from a manager, far from it. You do expect identifiable change for the better. Some sign of progress. There ha...

Reality check

Jim Bailey
Posted 07/01/2017

Ok, I'm angry and hacked off at yet another dismal exit from a cup competition.

Koeman hasn't won me over yet, but look at the players at his disposal. As fans we were all to often treated to a Martinez classic quote – one that sticks in my min...
