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...

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...

Nostalgic nineties theme not the answer?

Jon Sellick
Posted 30/10/2017

Oh shit. This wasn’t supposed to happen.

Rhino’s permanent contract was to be confirmed shortly. His ‘on the front foot’ style with wide men and goals was supposed to thrill (but if not, at least win some games).

Sunday’s game ...

Going Down? You betcha!

Teddy Draper
Posted 30/10/2017

I have seen it all since my first game at Goodison, the record gate against Liverpool all those years ago. I am 81 now and never thought I would be writing a headline like that!

I read all your comments over many years, and have contributed occasi...

One Direction?

Lawrence Green
Posted 29/10/2017

A quarter of the way through the 2017-18 season and the good ship Everton FC finds itself in extremely choppy waters. First and foremost, the results achieved thus far in the season have been disappointing to say the least, but the performances ha...

January priorities

John Keating
Posted 27/10/2017

Let's suppose David Unsworth stays as manager. I believe he will always give his U23s a chance if our so-called first teamers fail to shine.

He knows what we missed out on in the close season and who we need in the next window, hopefully he'll get ...

Joachim Löw

Paul Thomas
Posted 26/10/2017

A name I wanted to throw out there, who hasn’t been mentioned in the media at all and see what fellow Evertonians thoughts were, whether good or bad, would be a possible approach for Joachim Löw as our next Manager.

A long shot maybe, bu...

The Candidates

Posted 24/10/2017

David Unsworth has been handed the reins on a temporary basis and could yet earn the gig on a permanent basis if he sparks an instant turnaround in Everton's fortunes but the media will crack on with speculation over the Blues' new boss regardless.» Read


Gaz Smith
Posted 22/10/2017

I know he's injured and he (apparently) wants out, and I don't know how much Koeman has to do with it... but anyone remember how Thomas Gravesen stepped up when he was looking for a transfer?

I don't know about the rest of you but I'd at this put I...

Has there ever been a worse time to be an Evertonian?

Jonathan Tasker
Posted 22/10/2017

Back in 1998, Colin Shindler, a Man. City fan , wrote a brilliant book entitled “Manchester United ruined my life.” Right now, I really wish I could publish the same about Everton, except I won’t be blaming another team, I would just be dire...

Merseyside v North London

Rick Tarleton
Posted 22/10/2017

Having watched both the games and I thoroughly enjoyed the second game, let me spell out the difference between Liverpool's problems and ours. Let's ignore one huge point, they have attacking talent and we don't. Let's just concentrate on the way we ...

Summer Madness

Mike Oates
Posted 16/10/2017

I am, like thousands of Everton fans elsewhere, totally aghast at the dire fare we have to put up with at the moment. You can use as many words as you want to try and describe the team at the moment – shapeless, rudderless, tactically inept, chara...

Lukaku, Stones, Barkley and the betrayal of Everton

Andy Crooks
Posted 10/10/2017

I suggest that many Evertonians think we need the following:

A 20-goal-a-season striker, a creative midfielder with guile, and a footballing central defender who can pass. We had all three... three players who are as good as any, in my view,...

Realistically, who's in the frame?

Kevin Tully
Posted 10/10/2017

The vast majority of Blues want to see Koeman replaced. Hopefully, the Board are sounding out potential replacements, as we can all see where this is heading.

Who can we get? In no particular order, here's a quick rundown of names who coul...

Be bold. Try this out

Nizam Darwish
Posted 06/10/2017

I've been a Toffee fan since the 1970s and I dare say this current team has got talent. The problem with people nowadays is we expect instant results. 11 players assembled in less than 2 months are expected to play like Barcelona – fluid soccer wi...

Can the class of '92 be repeated with the Everton U20 World cup winners?

Paul Holmes
Posted 05/10/2017

Mark Twain once said in a quote that history does not repeat itself but it often rhymes. So if this is true then why can't Everton build a team around the five youngsters that won the U20 World Cup?

Dowell, Davies, Lookman, Dominic Calvert-Lewin an...

It was never the players!

Jim Wilson
Posted 03/10/2017

The only crumb of comfort I have from this horrific mess Koeman has put us in (and it is horrific and so unnecessary) is that players like Jagielka, Coleman, McCarthy, Barry, Barkley, Mirallas, Kone (probably the most derided), McGeady, who have all ...

Decision Time

Kevin Tully
Posted 30/09/2017

It seems years ago now, but can you believe it was only January this year, Mr Moshiri stood up at the Everton AGM to outline his ambitions for the club?

"It is not enough to say 'We are special',” he explained. “We don’t want to be a ...
