Big Sam has yet to taste defeat since becoming Toffees boss Well that was fun. Ok, for 77 minutes it wasn’t great. But Wayne Rooney’s leveller, Jurgen Klopp’s meltdown and the furious reaction from Kopites in the ensuing days makes it one of the most satisfying points taken from a derby game for...

Ronald Koeman identified the Manchester United man as a transfer target You’re likely getting a bit tired of hearing about how Everton failed to sign people in the summer. The botched job of replacing Romelu Lukaku , and failing to convince Olivier Giroud to swap London for Liverpool is one that...

Manager explains Roo’s positioning last night Looking at the Everton starting lineup ahead of the game last night, it looked like Wayne Rooney would line up at the number 10 position in a 4-2-3-1 formation. However, as the game progressed, Roo was dropping between the centerbacks to come get the...

Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Oct 18 4:14 PM
Yet another failure in the transfer market. Ronald Koeman claimed in a presser today that Everton tried, and failed to sign Memphis Depay. Now, I am not entirely sure why he tried to do this, as it makes absolutely no sense. Don’t get me wrong - this isn’t a criticism of Depay at all - I think he...

Koeman’s tactics kept his team in it Sunday, but lacked a key component Before I dig into my admittedly controversial thesis (that Everton could have actually beaten Manchester United ), let’s get an important point out of the way. The Toffees did not play poorly on Sunday. Period. I know the fin...

Everton fall apart late despite better effort Everton lost 4-0 away at Manchester United in a much-improved performance, but the effort told in the end as the team capitulated late to pile on three goals as the Blues moved with more purpose but looked exhausted at the end.

Assessing the Blues’ personnel options ahead of their trip to Old Trafford. Everton Football Club head to Old Trafford tomorrow in what can only be termed catastrophically bad form.
