Strike While the Iron is Hot

Lyndon Lloyd
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

Williams lost his rag... and his claim to the armband

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
05/03/2018

Decision Time

Lyndon Lloyd
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.

Rolls-Royce Coasting in Neutral

Lyndon Lloyd
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.

Everton need Lookman more than Ademola needs a loan move

Lyndon Lloyd
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.

Allardyce’s no-risk approach – short-term expediency or dyed-in-the-wool trait?

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
18/01/2018

Farewell to the Flawed Diamond

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
06/01/2018

Nihil Est Quam Salvos

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
29/11/2017

Paulo Fonseca – A risk/reward dilemma?

Lyndon Lloyd
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
28/11/2017

Diminishing options on the listing ship Everton?

Lyndon Lloyd
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
27/11/2017

Comment: FA's decision to charge Niasse makes an uncomfortable rod for their own backs

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
21/11/2017

Unsworth is Everton's bird in the hand... but for how long?

Lyndon Lloyd
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...
15/11/2017

Green shoots of revival despite cup defeat at Chelsea

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
26/10/2017

Nil Satis Nisi Optimum? Moshiri's own goal falls well short of Blues' motto

Lyndon Lloyd
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
02/10/2017

Obstinate Koeman's reign reeks of a busted flush

Lyndon Lloyd
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”.

Deadline Day Echo from Everton's Austere Past

Lyndon Lloyd
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.
04/09/2017

The Long-Awaited 'No.10'?

Lyndon Lloyd
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).
