Rooney penalty papers over glaring cracks in Koeman's tenure

Lyndon Lloyd
16/10/2017

Everton under Koeman are simply dull. They’re boring to watch, easy to defend against and too easy to score against if you attack them enough within a given 90 minutes.

Nil Satis Nisi Optimum? Moshiri's own goal falls well short of Blues' motto

Lyndon Lloyd
02/10/2017

Four years ago, the club removed our cherished motto from the crest. They reinstated it following howls of protest from supporters but if Farhad’s latest “statement” is any indication, it never made it back into the mission statement of the Board of Directors

Koeman's Blues stuck in reverse as recruitment failings bite

Lyndon Lloyd
01/10/2017

This was Everton showing commitment, decent tempo and tenacity – in the early going, at least – and it still wasn’t enough. Not by a long way.

Obstinate Koeman's reign reeks of a busted flush

Lyndon Lloyd
29/09/2017

To say we expected a hell of lot more this season is an understatement and it calls into question the likelihood of success for Ronald’s three-year Everton “project”.

Reborn Niasse eases the pressure on Koeman

Lyndon Lloyd
24/09/2017

The Senegalese striker helped bail Koeman out of another uncomfortable post-match inquest with a two-goal blast in the space of five minutes that turned this match on its head and delivered three points that seemed unlikely before he entered the fray 10 minutes into the second half

Woeful Blues make a mockery of top-six ambitions

Lyndon Lloyd
10/09/2017

The largely one-dimensional approach to recruitment this summer has led to Everton’s uninspiring start to the new season, one which has, over the past two games, lurched from concerning into the realm of deeply demoralising.

Deadline Day Echo from Everton's Austere Past

Lyndon Lloyd
04/09/2017

Everton’s transfer deadline-day had an annoying sense of déjà vu last Thursday when the window closed without the club being able to land much-needed reinforcements.

Everton left chasing shadows in familiar Stamford Bridge defeat

Lyndon Lloyd
27/08/2017

With just six shots on target in the opening three games, the problems that were laid bare today can’t be explained away by mere fatigue alone, even if it was undoubtedly a factor for those who did play in all three matches in just six days. The same nagging deficiencies remain despite massive expenditure on upgrading the team.

Calvert-Lewin comes of age but Everton are denied a stirring victory

Lyndon Lloyd
22/08/2017

It’s a shame that Dominic Calvert-Lewin's impressive assist for Wayne Rooney in the 35th-minute of this early-season tussle between Manchester and Merseyside at the Etihad didn’t end up serving up a precious winner.

The Long-Awaited 'No.10'?

Lyndon Lloyd
17/08/2017

Gylfi Sigurdsson's arrival doesn't necessarily mean an end to Evertonian longing for the No.10 slot to be filled but he potentially has the talent to operate as the all-important central position behind the striker(s).

Rooney leads the way in rare opening-day win

Lyndon Lloyd
13/08/2017

The Prodigal Son brought all his experience to bear against Stoke, scoring the winner and helping Everton dictate much of the second half to hold on for a 1-0 victory.

Giant Leap Or Just Forward Steps?

Lyndon Lloyd
10/08/2017

With a newly reinforced spine, Everton look as though they could be a stronger outfit than last season, even without the departed Lukaku. Is it enough, however, to crack the top six or four?
