The Next Guy...

Barry Rathbone

Newcastle Utd and Anthony Gordon

David Cooper
Posted 11/09/2023

With no footy to take my mind off Everton —  I don’t count watching England but was glad to see Mykolenko had a good game — I came across another fly-on-the-wall series on Amazon Prime about Newcastle Utd.  Abou...

Four things Everton must do to escape the relegation battle

Gary McCarty
Posted 15/09/2023

After seeing their team flirt with relegation in each of the last two seasons, Everton fans could have been forgiven for hoping things would improve this term. However, following an underwhelming summer transfer window, the Toffees look pr...

Results of our real opponents so far...

Joe Convery
Posted 06/09/2023

Here are the results of matches played so far among our immediate peers at the bottom of the Premier League, plus a table of how these teams are doing against each other in our mini league of down and outs so far… Luton Town 0pts...

Bread Revisited: The slow demise…

Kieran Kinsella
Posted 06/09/2023

18 years ago, in August 2005, I submitted an article to ToffeeWeb entitled Bread. In it, I made comparisons between the state of Everton Football Club and the titular family from the much-loved (?) Carla Lane sitcom of the 1980s. The arti...

Opinion: Dyche could be tempted to make selection call on defender

Gary McCarty
Posted 01/09/2023

Everton narrowly beat League 2 side Doncaster Rovers in the EFL Cup, and there was plenty of room for improvement for the Toffees moving forwards. They were outplayed and offered little attacking threat in the first-half of that clash with Donny, ...

The Last Chance Saloon

Tony Everan
Posted 25/08/2023

  So here we are entering the last week of the summer transfer window. The fact we haven’t signed a striker, the critical business, means that we really have walked into the Last Chance Saloon.  Worse still, we are at the b...

Blue & White chess sets

Gerry Quinn
Posted 17/08/2023

I wish we could get some Everton business to create and sell Everton-themed chess sets along these lines: Iconic Chess Sets – based on Scottish Fo...

Can Everton Challenge for the Title This Year?

Andy Thompson
Posted 11/08/2023

As the new football season kicks off, fans and enthusiasts are already buzzing with excitement and anticipation. One question on many minds is whether Everton, the underdog of recent years, has what it takes to challenge for the title this year. T...

Lucky For Some?

Paul Tran
Posted 06/08/2023

I remember the joys of pre-seasons past. An absence of ridiculous, fictional speculation. Well-tanned, overweight players showing their lack of fitness against never heard of op...

Predicted Final Positions

Ian Jones
Posted 05/08/2023

As we all (or hopefully, most of us) look forward to the new season, it would perhaps be interesting to predict where we all think which position in the table Everton will finish in at the end of the season. ...

Everton 2023/24 Premier League season preview

Gary McCarty
Posted 03/08/2023

Everton's 2023/24 Premier League season gets underway on August 12 as they welcome last campaign's surprise package Fulham to Goodison Park. Following a disastrous 2022/23 season, the top online ga...

If you know your history

Trevor Powell
Posted 29/07/2023

Fortuitously, I came across a a documentary on You Tube called, "100 years of ⚽️ The Football League documentary".It goes right back to the founding of the league upto when the Premier League took over the governance of our top tier of ...

The fans have kept the club going for the last two years. Where is the appreciation?

Dave Williams
Posted 19/07/2023

For the last two years — some would go much further than that — the Everton fans have kept our club going. Two seasons of pretty awful football, evidence of some players not trying particularly hard, players not appearing to be as fit ...

Everton's Biggest Transfer Coups

Gary McCarty
Posted 19/07/2023

Everton fans have not had much to shout about in recent seasons, with two successive relegation battles highlighting how far the club has fallen. The days of regularly finishing in the top half of the Premier League are a distant memory, while win...

How do we get into a stable midtable position by February 2024?

Bill Gall
Posted 17/07/2023

With the knowledge that the club will find it very difficult because of poor contracts and transfers and bad decisions from previous years by upper management, what do supporters feel we need to finally stabilize us by February 2024 to avoid fight...

Everton Doo Doo

Bob Wilkinson
Posted 13/07/2023

Some figures that might help us all realise just what a mess Moshiri has got us into: In the accounts dated year ending 30 June 2022, we state Assets Under Construction are £168m. 'Assets under con...

The curious case of Gomes and Gbamin

Kieran Kinsella
Posted 08/07/2023

There's no evidence that either Gomes or Gbamin reported back for training duty. Indeed, Alan Myers says he doesn't believe they did. Now I realize they are about as welcome as a syphilitic serial killer at a hippy free-love convention but they ar...
