Was Kenwright right?

Sam Railton
Posted 30/06/2017

I am an Everton fan of over 30 years, but a new member of this website. I have noticed historically on other sites a lot of animosity towards Mr Kenwright, particularly in relation to the sale of the club. When he was saying years ago, that...

Your all-time Top Ten Everton players.

Conor Skelly
Posted 27/06/2017

This may be quite a juvenile talking point and is obviously very subjective but I am interested to know what people's opinions of Everton's all-time Top Ten best players are. My Top Ten, in order, are... #1 Dixie Dean#2 Alan Ball#...

The Lukaku Problem and the Myth of a Number Nine

Robert Leigh
Posted 16/06/2017

As Evertonians, we have waited a long time for a 20 goal-a-season man. We tried Bent, Beattie, Johnson, Yakubu, Anichebe, Vaughan, Saha, Jelavic – none of whom were up to the task (although in fairness the Yak & Saha had their moment...

Positive but...

Peter Rogers
Posted 15/06/2017

Believe me when I say am over the moon that it looks like we are building a new squad that will hopefully get us in the top 4 but I still have doubts... Has Mr Moshiri really spent any money as yet or are we spending the up-coming Lukaku money? ...

This Time Feels Different

Steve Hogan
Posted 14/06/2017

The media pictures of our Director of Football arriving in Milan today to 'talk business' should herald a new dawn of optimism amongst our fanabase.Clearly, we no longer have to wait until 11:30pm on deadline day to sign the 'best of the rest' ...

It was 50 years ago today...

Mark Riding
Posted 04/06/2017

Well... it was on June 1. This version is not quite what it seems... But a special Everton-flavoured celebration instead. ...

Moshiri the fraud?

peter larkin
Posted 03/06/2017

So a year has passed, what has changed? In my eyes very little!! Moshiri bought out shares and from what little understanding i have on the buisness front we still have the 80 million pound debt, but instead of paying the banks WE pay Moshiri! Nice l...

Turin Memorial Piazza

Billy Jones
Posted 26/05/2017

I'm just on holiday in Lake Garda, Italy this week, and have picked up an interesting little column in La Gazetta Dello Sport, stating that the city of Turin is to commemorate the 39 victims 'crushed' at Hysel by devoting a piazza (like a town square...

You're NOT going to believe THIS!

Eugene Ruane
Posted 22/05/2017

I understand that during the summer, newspapers (certainly the tabloids) get desperate (well..even MORE desperate) for football stories. However it isn’t really a problem for them, as they can/do/will simply invent a load of space-filler shit...

What does Alisher Usmanov's failure to take over Arsenal mean for Everton?

Jim Hardin
Posted 20/05/2017

It has been reported in the Guardian and other news outlets that Stan Kroenke has knocked back Usmanov's $1.3 billion attempt to take over Arsenal. Given the ties between Usmanov and Moshiri, could it mean that Everton is in line to be the next c...

U23 Player of the Year

Liam Reilly
Posted 19/05/2017

I see the only player from Everton to be nominated for the U23 Player of the year is 'Liam Walsh'.Surely if he's the best in that league then he must be knocking on the first team door. I know he's suffered a few injuries but he's yet to even m...

U23s - Contract Review

Alasdair Mackay
Posted 09/05/2017

I was looking, like thousands of other Evertonians, at the pictures of our incredible U23s lifting the Premier League Trophy and it got me thinking. What will become of this golden generation?I decided to look over the contract situation fo...

The 7th-best team finish 7th

Andy Crooks
Posted 08/05/2017

I just watched Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 tonight. How many of our team would get in theirs? Maybe Lukaku who would be surrounded by better players... maybe not. In fact, I doubt that any of our team would get into any of the sides above us. W...

Goals alone do not an idol make

Frank Mullin
Posted 07/05/2017

Evertonians young and old alike have made idols over the years of a select group of centre-forwards who have demonstrated their unique qualities, which, more often than not, included scoring goals in abundance. Some, but not all, have been part of...
