Everton vs Crystal Palace: The Opposition View

We spoke to Eagles blog HLTCO ahead of Sunday’s clash Everton will be aiming for three consecutive league wins when Crystal Palace visit Goodison Park on Sunday. It would mark the first time the Blues have achieved this feat since January 2017 when, ironically, a win at the Eagles sealed a third straight victory in the Premier League. Palace, meanwhile, are looking to avoid a third league defeat in a row after losses to AFC Bournemouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Roy Hodgson saved the South Londoners from relegation last year after losing their first seven games, and a stunning end to...

Everton Loans Recap: Season so far, Pt 2 - The Rest

How have the rest of Everton’s loanees fared out on loan this season? Everton have 14 players out on loan this season, in a pretty even mix of youngsters still trying to establish themselves in the senior squad and other players whose futures evidently lie elsewhere while the Blues can find adequate compensation for them. In Part 1 we looked at the youngsters who could yet be part of the Everton side in the future. In Part 2 today, we’ll summarize how things have gone for the rest of the loan contingent, a motley mix of not-good-enoughs and rejects. Ashley Williams The rapid decline...

Everton International Break Round-Up

Everton International Break Round-Up

How did Everton’s international players get on in the break? Avoiding injuries is always a top priority when the international break arrives and Everton have managed to have pick up just one ahead of the weekend’s visit of Crystal Palace – although it’s not a name many Blues want to see missing from the teamsheet… Otherwise it was a positive break for the Everton contingent, with plenty of goals and impressive performances put in. Richarlison - Brazil Came off the bench with half an hour to play to help Brazil to a last-minute 1-0 friendly win over arch-rivals Argentina. The...

Turkish giants have transfer agreement with Everton striker

Turkish giants have transfer agreement with Everton striker

Two clubs yet to work out a deal though on Oumar Niasse Oumar Niasse has fallen down the pecking order at Everton following the arrival of Cenk Tosun in January, and now with Richarlison also having a go at the striker role, it was almost certain that he will be looking to leave for more playing opportunities in the coming January transfer window. Usually reliable Turkish outlet Fanatik are saying that Niasse already has a transfer agreement with Turkey’s Super Lig champions Galatasaray, and all that remains is for the two clubs to hash out a deal for the Senegalese forward. The Turkish...

Everton in the Community takes big step for female supporters

Sanitary products will be available for free at Goodison Park Before an away preseason game in July, Everton Fan Services tweeted that visiting female fans at the game in Rennes should ask stewards to be directed to the toilets. The implication was that female bathrooms were possibly in short supply, which could lead to a very uncomfortable experience for women at the game. | Information for fans heading to Rennes today...

Everton news recap: Silva backs ‘perfect’ Pickford, Dowell & Williams shine, Ramsey linked again

Recapping the Everton news from yesterday Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours After Jordan Pickford’s latest star turn for England between the sticks, his manager at Everton Marco Silva is certainly appreciative of how good he can be on the ball when initiating attacks. [EFC] Meanwhile, the national media can’t get enough of Pickford either, with a catchy tagline for the keeper too - “a new breed of goalkeeper who are the first line of attack rather than the last line of defence”. [Daily Mail] Pickford has certainly been one of the few bright spots at Goodison Park since...

False dawns and broken promises - the reasons behind Goodison Park’s fading atmosphere

False dawns and broken promises - the reasons behind Goodison Park’s fading atmosphere

Goodison has been an angry and sometimes toxic arena in recent years - and often with good reason. But is that about to change? Having recently moved house, I have spent much of the past few months sorting through boxes of old files, clothes, CDs and various other bits of junk I’ve collected over the years. One box contained my old Everton programmes going back to the early 90s as well as a collection of fanzines dating from around 1998 to the mid 2000s. I could never throw them away (don’t tell the wife) but they are likely to be consigned to a life in the loft very soon. So before...

Should Everton sign Usain Bolt?

Should Everton sign Usain Bolt?

Fans have suggested it. Do not engage them. Let me answer this question in less than 9.58 seconds: No. This would be like asking if the White Sox should offer Michael Jordan a major league deal in the mid 1990s. Bolt is an absolute legend in his sport, and the fact that he’s a world class athlete with some background in footy means he’s better than most of us at the sport. But Everton is a big side in one of the very best leagues in the world. It’s not a shame to say that we’re way over his head. Bolt is a famous athlete, we’re a club with a ton of money, Twitter says that the...
