Managers v Philosophers

Martin Reppion
Posted 11/12/2017

We have heard a lot in recent years about managers who have a 'philosophy'. This is usually an overseas coach who shuns the typical British work ethic in favour of pretty, passing football. Sometimes, they are successful such as Pep Guardiola. Someti...

Stayaway fans

Nick Wall
Posted 02/12/2017

Sam Allardyce certainly isn't the answer to all my prayers. But I'm curious: more than just a few fans are declaring that they won't watch Everton / renew their season ticket while he's in charge. Why?

There appear to be three main lines of ...

What's our best team?

Peter Laing
Posted 01/12/2017

Now that the dust has finally settled regarding the controversial Managerial appointment of Sam Allardyce and his backroom staff I for one welcome a return to looking at matters on the pitch.

Allardyce undoubtedly has a penchant for experie...

Our greatest ever goal

Don Alexander
Posted 30/11/2017

Quite simply folks some of the TV punters have acclaimed Wayne Rooney's third goal as just that, our greatest ever, and that may be the case.

What do you think though, and if you differ, what WAS the greatest ever in your opinion?

For me the scre...

25 Squad players (*=Home grown)

Barkley, Ross*
Besic, Muhamed

Back to basics

Gareth Clark
Posted 28/11/2017

Let’s start off on a nervy note - I think we made a huge mistake letting Koeman go... and if I were in charge, I’d try to get him back.

A big issue is that our fans have a huge say, which is a great thing, until we hit a rough patch. Wh...

Sending the wrong message

Rupert Sullivan
Posted 28/11/2017

I know that Everton are currently in a difficult situtaion, the results are bad, morale seems worse and the whole picture looks very black... Surely then, this is all the more reason then NOT to appoint a someone like Allardyce?The club should be lo...

Crisis not Catastrophe. Keep Calm

Peter Fearon
Posted 28/11/2017

May I sound a note of optimism amid all the gloom and doom? Contrary to many fans whose posts I have read I do not believe for one nanosecond that we will be relegated this season. So pervasive is the negativity that I read one post today that see...

State of mind

Simon Smith
Posted 27/11/2017

Is Michael Keane up for the fight or is he really injured?

Some might say he does not have the mental strength for a dog fight and can be a bit fragile when we need to show a spine.

I guess only time will tell so watch this space and let's see...

Take your pick

Carl Taylor
Posted 26/11/2017

Whilst watching another embarrassing capitulation against a Southampton side who prior to playing us couldn't hit a barn door, I began to think about how awful our squad actually is. I started to consider which players other teams would covet. Forget...

Now's the time for an inquest

Mike Oates
Posted 26/11/2017

We are in crisis and can’t decide how we manage our way out of it, either with in-house Unsworth, or a true-brit, tried and tested manager, Allardyce or Dyche, or splash the cash and get a true European tried and tested, Ancelotti or Tuchel or go o...

It’s the fans' fault this form

David Gill
Posted 24/11/2017

Blame Koeman. He probably played his part but it’s more the fans' fault.

People at the club keep calling us fantastic fans. I have to disagree.

I’m going to refer to us fans as “you” because I sing on my own most of the time.

You lot ...

Our proactive board

Rick Tarleton
Posted 24/11/2017

Just over a month ago, our Board made the correct decision and sacked Ronald Koeman. No problem there. One assumed they had some idea of whom they wanted to succeed the highly paid Dutchman. Big names like Ancelotti and Tuchel were bandied around....

My choice for new manager: Some feller

Eugene Ruane
Posted 24/11/2017

I think what's needed here is someone stating the bleeding obvious.

Any volunteers?

No...well, looks like it'll have to be me then.

So, as I say, some feller is definitely the man for me and I'll back him to the hilt.

Tony Pulis for the Blues

Harry Catterall
Posted 23/11/2017

It's time to get real. Pulis is available. Everton are in freefall. Film-star managers for Everton are not a possibility.

Unsy's time is over. If the board don't act now, we will become a football irrelevance.

Get Pulis now!...

Everton first XI with a twist...

Nigel Gregson
Posted 19/11/2017

Would this team beat our current eleven?

Ruddy; Mostafi, Duffy, Stones, Dier; Deulofeu, Barry, Fellaini, Cleverley; Lukaku, Naismith.

All the above are playing in the Champio...

Vision and getting an edge

Thomas Lennon
Posted 10/11/2017

It is the time you take to look for options before you get the ball, even as it is travelling towards you that gives you the edge. Which of our current squad are most capable?

A Song for Seamus

Dermot O'Brien
Posted 09/11/2017

This is a suggestion for the poets and jesters who go to Goodison with chants and songs and odes to our great players. Seamus will (hopefully) be racing up the right wing in a few months, and I think a new song would show our appreciation. The son...

What Big Sam’s appointment would say about the current state of Everton FC

Jonathan Tasker
Posted 07/11/2017

Okay, he hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet but he’s going to so better get used to it.

What’s perhaps more interesting are the insights that Big Sam’s appointment gives as to the thinking of Kenwright and Moshiri. Truly progressi...

Best formation and going forward

Gareth Clark
Posted 06/11/2017

I have been saying for a long time, that we need to tighten up our defence and build confidence through defensive solidity.

However, there is no point doing this, and then having absolutely nothing going for us up front... because, as we have seen...
