Sigurdsson: “Toughest moment of my career”

Everton player reflects on Iceland loss to Nigeria Iceland had been looking under the gun in the second half as a rejuvenated Nigeria surged forward time and again, building up a 2-0 lead. The gritty performance to come from behind against Lionel Messi’s Argentina was all but forgotten until Alfreð Finnbogason surged forward with just seven minutes left and was tripped up to win a late penalty. All day long Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson had shown off his wand of a right foot, delivering setpieces with unerring accuracy and zesty fizz into the box, but his teammates kept wasting the...

Gylfi misses penalty as Iceland slip to defeat

Second place in Group D wide open, lifeline for Argentina Just days after an impressive performance holding Argentina to a draw, Iceland came crashing down to earth against a rejuvenated Nigeria in World Cup Group D action. Gylfi Sigurdsson and his side had started the game the stronger side, and ended it on a high too, missing multiple chances from setpieces. The Everton attacking midfielder’s delivery from freekicks and corners had been especially sublime, but they would later regret missing those chances. Nigeria on the other hand came alive in the second half, carried by Leicester...

Instant replacement for Ramiro Funes Mori Okay, before we go any further... let’s take a second to just bask in the aura of Marcel Brands, the man who got a cool £17million for Ramiro Funes Mori. Glorious. Now, what if we got a better player than Ramiro for about half that? Are you in? Cool. Madrid paper AS has linked Everton to a £8million release clause move for Spanish center back Juanpe Ramirez of Catalonian side Girona. Girona FC is owned by the City Ownership Group that also controls Manchester City and New York City FC. They challenged for European places in a highly...

Friday’s Toffee Bites: Farewell Funes, Loftus-Cheek update and more

Marcel Brands is only just getting started Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours The Blues are being linked with a couple of box-to-box midfielders - One is a countryman of Idrissa Gueye’s. In fact, he might as well be a clone of Gana, in which case, why do we want him? [RBM] The other is an England international at the World Cup who is unsettled at Chelsea and could change Everton’s midfield, for the better. [RBM] Everton have a midfielder Boro want, and Boro have a defender the Blues want. Make it happen. [RBM] There’s a young goalie that the Blues might have been linked with...

Loftus-Cheek changed the game against Tunisia BACKGROUND Unsettled at Chelsea, made a real impact at Crystal Palace, and now tipped to star for England at the World Cup? Ruben Loftus-Cheek has had an interesting journey over the last few years, spending time at Chelsea’s junior side and failing to make the breakthrough on a regular basis to the seniors before going out on loan to Palace last season. Chelsea’s management situation continues to be unresolved, with Antonio Conte still in charge, though he is expected to leave and be replaced by Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri. The Daily...

Official: Ramiro Funes Mori suddenly sold to Villarreal

Everton defender leaves club with the quickness. In the middle of today’s Argentina game at the World Cup, Everton dropped some news that caught us off guard. Central defender Ramiro Funes Mori has been transferred to Villarreal in Spain. | @funesmoriofi25 has joined @Eng_Villarreal on a four year deal for an undisclosed fee.https://t.co/2izpI3LYWe pic.twitter.com/ZalDRAblh9— Everton (@Everton) June 21, 2018 The fee is undisclosed at this time, and quickly does away with speculation from this morning that Funes Mori was on his way to Middlesbrough. It also would not have been a...

Can Everton & Middlesbrough work out mutually beneficial deal?

Can Everton & Middlesbrough work out mutually beneficial deal?

It appears to be quite straightforward BACKGROUND Everton want central defender Ben Gibson, and want to lighten the squad from 38 players to about 25-30. Middlesbrough want Ramiro Funes Mori and Muhamed Besic to build their squad for a promotion run. The two clubs meet, work it out with the players’ agents, and we have a mutually-beneficial done deal, right? Alas, it doesn’t quite work like that does it? The Telegraph are reporting in their print edition (via HITC) that Boro are looking to put in a bid of £5million for Argentina international Funes Mori who has struggled to win a...

Why are Everton being linked with another ‘Idrissa Gueye’?

The rumours are quite unrelenting BACKGROUND This observation has to be stated clearly before we proceed any further. Remember how last summer once it became known that Everton had Farhad Moshiri’s millions to spend, it seemed like every available player was being linked to the Blues? It’s happening again, with some discretion since this transfer window most of Everton’s areas of need are clearly known. In Marco Silva’s 4-3-3 formation, the three midfielders play a pivotal role, literally. Depending on the opposition, he will settle with one holding midfielder shielding the...

Supposed Everton ‘target’ signs with Real Madrid

It’s weird that we were ever linked with him. Going in to this offseason we all knew that if there was any position we needed a young talented player at immediately, it was at goalkeeper. Wait... no, that’s not right at all. England number 1 Jordan Pickford has that position on lockdown for all the foreseeable future and frankly I have no idea why anyone got the notion that we should be thinking about a prospect keeper of any sort. Nonetheless, the winds of silly season blow far and wide and link anyone perceived to have money with everyone perceived to need a move. So, about a...

Thursday’s Toffee Bites: Everton chasing left backs in the Bundesliga

Good to see a position of need being focused on Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours Everton struggled mightily at the left back position last season when Leighton Baines went out injured, and Marcel Brands & Marco Silva want to ensure there will be adequate cover behind him this year. To that end, two Bundesliga fullbacks have been linked with the Blues this summer. Marvin Plattenhardt of Hertha Berlin is at the World Cup with Germany. [RBM] Wendell of Bayer Leverkusen is Brazilian, but has not played for his nation yet. [RBM] An interesting link popped up with Danish midfielder...
