Rooney penalty papers over glaring cracks in Koeman's tenure

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.
by Lyndon Lloyd : 16/10/2017

Rooney saves Everton with late spot-kick

A poor match came to life with Brighton scoring, Rooney saving Koeman's side with a fortuitous penalty
by Michael Kenrick : 15/10/2017

Koeman's Blues stuck in reverse as recruitment failings bite

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.

From My Seat: Burnley (H)

After the debacle that was Thursday night, we licked our wounds and girded our loins and trouped back to the Grand Old Lady via the Room of Nonsense to sort out team and tactics before heading off to sample the real thing.
by Ken Buckley : 01/10/2017

The board have a big decision to make

The talk on everyone’s lips after the game of course was, should Ronald Koeman be sacked. It’s safe to say, most of the supporters seem to think so. Personally, I’m pretty neutral.
by Paul Traill : 01/10/2017

Abject naivety the final straw for pitiful Blues

Despite a bright attacking start, Burnley took the lead with an easy goal. Everton had no meaningful reply, with Koeman now under massive pressure.
by Michael Kenrick : 01/10/2017

It was just so Everton

The Europa League campaign doesn’t have to be doom and gloom just yet but we are certainly doing it the hard way.

Niasse brace gets Koeman out of jail

Win we did. It still wasn't especially pretty up until the winning goal just five minutes later, but we persevered
by Paul Traill : 24/09/2017

Reborn Niasse eases the pressure on Koeman

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
by Lyndon Lloyd : 24/09/2017

From My Seat: Bournemouth (H)

All in all a good day out. A win which was vital in terms of confidence. Niasse comes in from the cold. Will Big Ron apologise for his treatment of the lad? He should.
by Ken Buckley : 23/09/2017

Niasse rescues Blues with fairy-tale brace

After going behind to a fine Josh King goal, supersub Oumar Niasse came on to score twice and underline his newfound cult status.
by Michael Kenrick : 23/09/2017

Better Blues collapse in the last 7 mins

Valencia scored a screamer after 4 minutes but Everton came close until they gave up three goals at the end after Rooney had gone off.
by Michael Kenrick : 17/09/2017

Trip to Atalanta

Following on from my thread about our trip to Croatia, I thought I would give a report on our trip to Atalanta, not giving any opinion on the match itself as we all know what a crock of shit that was.
by Rob Halligan : 15/09/2017

Woeful Blues make a mockery of top-six ambitions

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.
by Lyndon Lloyd : 10/09/2017

From My Seat: Tottenham Hotspur (H)

Overall a very frustrating day. Time for manager and players to stand up and get themselves welded into a coherent team.
by Ken Buckley : 09/09/2017

Meek surrender to silky Spurs

Everton’s showed some attacking intent but allowed Kane to score his first of the season before gifting a finish for Eriksen, and another for Kane after the break.
by Michael Kenrick : 09/09/2017

Everton left chasing shadows in familiar Stamford Bridge defeat

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.
by Lyndon Lloyd : 27/08/2017

Dismal showing limits Chelsea to two easy goals

Everton tried to keep it tight, and gave up two goals in an abysmal first period.
by Michael Kenrick : 27/08/2017

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

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.
by Lyndon Lloyd : 22/08/2017

Everton surrender two points to City ferocity

Wayne Rooney scores his 200th Premier League goal and celebrates in fine style at The Etihad, where City are down to 10 men.
by Michael Kenrick : 21/08/2017

One foot in the group stage

With four clean sheets in four games, it’s hard to complain. I’ll be interested to see where we stand in a month’s time.
by Paul Traill : 18/08/2017

From My Seat: Stoke City (H)

All-in-all, a good day out and now we can turn our minds to Thursday when off we go again.
by Ken Buckley : 13/08/2017

Welcome home, Wayne

With the fixtures upcoming, I was simply relieved to be coming away with the three points, our first opening day win for five years
by Paul Traill : 13/08/2017

Rooney leads the way in rare opening-day win

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.
by Lyndon Lloyd : 13/08/2017

Fine Rooney goal elevates dour encounter

A dreadful half turned on its head with a lovely move, great cross and fine header from Wayne Rooney before the break.
by Michael Kenrick : 12/08/2017

Evertonians just get everywhere

Luckily we didn't book our trip to the Netherlands for Everton's game-that-wasn't against Groningen and so, when the game against Genk was announced, Gaz and I were able to book some flights to Brussels Charleroi.
