Who really has the bigger claim to the Liver Bird?

Michael Kenrick
Posted 09/12/2018

A seemingly very well researched article in the Echo tackles this thorny question, tracing the history of the City's ornithological symbol back to ancient times.

Everton shareholder Keith Wilson, from Waterloo, decided to mount a campaign to...

An evening with Duncan Mckenzie

Tim Taylor
Posted 07/12/2018

I attended this event last night at a bar in Nottingham where I live. He was great, really funny and entertaining. He did talk a lot about Forest (given where we were) but also Everton.

A few snippets:

  • A joke about Rooney's edu...

We're still here

Darren Hind
Posted 04/12/2018

How are you feeling? Numb? Angry? Hurt? frustrated?

I watched some of Sunday's game again today. Not all of it – just the end. Now you could be forgiven for thinking I`m some sort of a masochist, A glutton for punishment, but I can assure...

The legend that is Lyons

Andy Osborne
Posted 05/12/2018

13 September 1975 was a day I will remember for the rest of my life. It was the day before my 9th birthday and the first time my Dad took me to Goodison Park, where I watched us beat Newcastle 3-0. Latchford scored the first, Mick Lyons the second...

To the banks of the Mersey

Geoff Cadman
Posted 01/12/2018

Ever since, Bramley-Moore Dock was chosen as the site for our new stadium, the sea shanty “Liverpool Judies” played on my mind. The dock is mentioned in the Lyrics, so I tried adapting it to an Everton Theme. With the stadium Consultation, improv...

Loan Watch — #4

Posted 21/11/2018

This article in The Guardian covered the range of on-loan Premier League players. The report in regards to our 14 boys elsewhere goes as such:


Ashley Williams, 34, Stoke: Williams has little ...

Adding A Lookman

David Pearl
Posted 13/11/2018

Okay, so we’ve been hearing calls for Lookman to get a run in the starting line-up since... well, since the first game of the season really. Finally, I am in agreement. Sometimes he comes on for his 10 or 20 minutes and looks good and other t...

Another bleeding international break

Fran Mitchell
Posted 13/11/2018

I ain't one of those 'I ain't bothered about international football' fans, like most, I love the world cup, and the European Championships and usually get swept up in 'In-GER-LUND' mania like the best of us, and as such I agree that friendlies are...

Is the Premier League getting boring?

Tony Cheek 
Posted 10/11/2018

I just read this on Facebook and it really got me thinking....

Is the Premier League getting boring. How much longer can it continue being about the "Big Six"? Is it about to bite its own bum?

The sooner they all fuck off to a 'Supe...

Where are we now and what we need next

Peter Rogers
Posted 02/11/2018

I had picked after the Man Utd game to assess, in my opinion, if we had progressed or not under the new regime. Although some of the results so far this season may not have gone the way we all hoped they would, the signs are very promising.

We wer...

Who's missing from the 2018-19 Squad Photo?

Michael Kenrick
Posted 13/10/2018

I now have (very little) love / (lotsa) hate relationship with the increasingly maddening NewsNow Everton feed that I used to rely on for the latest news about Everton.

Now it's a hell-hole of click-bait. And I should know better but, of cou...

Formula X: The Interchangeables

Martin O'Connor
Posted 09/10/2018

Marco Silva’s first away win of the Season at Leicester City came with two great goals. It was also the best version of a Marco Silva team we have seen so far. The future for the Blues is taking shape, it will take time, but it is increasingly l...

About to score 7,000 top-flight goals?

Steve Viney
Posted 30/09/2018

I may well have missed this or be wrong as I'm not sure how accurate the all-time table is but I believe that Everton are only 16 goals away from being the ...

Rick Tarleton
Posted 20/09/2018

There have been quite a few articles and comments which have been questionning Pickford's ability in recent weeks, which is surprising as he came home from the World Cup as a bit of a golden boy.

To be honest, Pickford seems the least of our...

Ante Up

Anthony Newell
Posted 19/09/2018

Owning a Premier League club with aspirations for the top six is like joining an elite high-stakes Poker club, as Moshiri is finding out. Guided by charlatans and investing in 'yesterday's men' (Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bolasie, Williams, Rooney) and ...

Tapped Up!

Rick Tarleton
Posted 16/09/2018

I've always wondered why Everton were so keen on Marco Silva... he took Hull City down and his Watford team self-destructed last season, so much so that he was sacked. I read in today's "Observer" that Everton could well face a six-figure fine and...

Kieran Kinsella
Posted 12/09/2018

According to "Physioroom", Everton currently lead the Premier League table in terms of injuries. They have us pegged at 11. I don't know if t...

Is TW a sanctuary for old curmudgeons?

Lev Vellene
Posted 05/09/2018

Just a thought that struck me (and I'm an old curmudgeon, in may ways!), but the Official Site has sections for the Ladies and the U23's.

I've found a want more info on the U23's than seems available at the OS. And the female team is representing ...
