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...

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...
