Flexibility

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...

Axel Witsel heads to China

Conor Skelly
Posted 03/01/2017

So, there you have it. Long time Everton target, Belgium and Zenit St. Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel has signed for Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian and will earn a reported £18M a year.

Juventus reportedly tried to persuade the player on a...

Dollie the possible missing link?

Ricardo Humphries
Posted 03/01/2017

The South African CAF Champions League winner is on the radar of a couple of European clubs. This player could be the missing link in Ronald Koeman's team.

Pienaar was really on the left, Keagan Dollie is in the same mould, only 10 times better. Al...

Ten Years... So Little Progress

Peter Fearon
Posted 27/12/2016

I just watched the 2005 game against Manchester United for only the second time and it was a real eye-opener. It’s over 10 years ago and all I remembered clearly were Duncan Ferguson’s great glanc...

What does the future really hold?

Steve Hogan
Posted 22/12/2016

As 2016 draws to a close, once again, Evertonians are left pondering as to the future, both short term and long term, for our great club. Perhap's in the aftermath of yet another disappointing derby defeat, now is not the time to be penning an a...

Should we gamble on Rooney?

Gavin McGarvey
Posted 17/12/2016

It was twelve years ago that we sold Rooney to Man United. Is now the time to bring him back?

Rooney still generates strong feelings amongst Evertonians. Some see him as a traitor who grabbed the cash, and walked out on his childhood sweethea...

Dying Passions

Phil Hoyle
Posted 11/12/2016

I wrote something here in summer about how I cannot get enthused despite the appointment of Ronald Koeman. My passion for football had died a lot.

That, for me, is unbelievable. My parents remind me how football-obsessed I was where, when I was ...

Koeman – stick or twist?

Dave Williams
Posted 11/12/2016

I have followed this great club since 1963. There have been a few periods of sheer joy but an awful lot more of despair and I am sensing trouble ahead now. I was not keen on Koeman, preferring the guy from Sevilla or De Boer because of his reputat...

Dyed-in-the-wool Blue

David Peate
Posted 11/12/2016

A memorable occasion for me was Dave Hickson’s heroics against Man Utd in, if I recall correctly, early 1953 when he finished the match carrying a blood-soaked handkerchief and with so much blood on his shirt that he looked like a Man Utd player. ...

Would we be doing better under Martinez?

Phil Walling
Posted 06/12/2016

I bet I'm the last person any Evertonian would imagine posing that question. But I've just got back from having a pint with a couple of guys who I haven't spoken to since I was home last year – and they tell me the feeling of disquiet over the d...

Blame Game

Kristian Boyce
Posted 06/12/2016

Clear-out seems a bit of a buzzword on Toffeeweb over the last couple of weeks. Obviously, with the dip in form from both the club and a number of established players, fingers are being pointed at a variety of areas at fault. Koeman, Martinez, Moyes,...
