If Everton retain any serious interest in their top two managerial targets of last year, they should reopen the communication lines to Messers Silva and/or Fonseca immediately
Ashley Williams abandoned his defensive duties and his responsibilities as leader on Saturday. It's time to give the team captaincy to someone far more worthy.
Farhad Moshiri has just passed two years as the club’s major shareholder. He will have learned plenty in that time but Everton now need strong and unmistakable leadership from the top.
Once lauded as Everton's Rolls-Royce, Morgan Schneiderlin has become a source of frustration this season. Blues fans have had enough but it's probably not too late for redemption.
Amid suggestions that Ademola Lookman could be sent out on loan, surely there's a better argument for using him judiciously in a Blues' first team that badly needs his precocious talents.
Sam Allardyce's unexpectedly rosey honeymoon period offered the journeyman boss an opportunity to reboot and begin re-building for Everton's future. Instead, his joyless, defensive approach has favoured ageing players without achieving positive results.
He may never reach the same level as Wayne Rooney or achieve as much but Barkley’s departure has conjured up the same feelings of disappointment and the loss of a homegrown player to a (currently) higher-achieving club.
Fold away the “Our Motto Is Our Standard” banner and padlock the doors to the School of Science”. Sam Allardyce, disgraced ex-England manager, purveyor of quintessentially agricultural football and Premier League escapologist is now manager of Everton.
Evertonian observers will know plenty about Sam Allardyce and Martin O'Neill, two of the three names said to be on Farhad Moshiri's shortlist, but emerging Portuguese manager Fonseca is a lesser-known quantity
The interim appointment of Unsworth may have seemed sound at the outset but Everton's worsening plight will surely force the Board to act quickly now
It almost seems as though the Football Association has gone out of its way to make life as difficult for itself as possible with their decision to charge Oumar Niasse with “successful deception of a match official” in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.
His Blue credentials made him the ideal interim coach but the limited options for Koeman's successor mean he could stay in charge for longer than expected...
A narrow loss at Stamford Bridge — or rather the performance that went with it — at least showed that the fight, the spirit, the organisation and the belief can be there to start putting wins on the board in the near future.
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
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”.
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.
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).
