Everton actively pursuing veteran to challenge Jordan Pickford

Everton actively pursuing veteran to challenge Jordan Pickford

Photo by Ash Donelon/Manchester United via Looks like Ancelotti has seen enough of the England number one While Jordan Pickford’s time at Everton might not be coming to an end this season at least, it does appear that the Blues have learned their lessons about his concentration and composure and want to bring in a goalkeeper that will actively challenge him for a starting spot. Carlo Ancelotti still has needs elsewhere that must be addressed before the transfer deadline in less than a fortnight, primarily at right back (if Jonjoe Kenny is sold) and right wing, but Pickford’s latest...

Fleetwood Town 2-5 Everton: Three Thoughts | Everton advance to Fourth Round despite trivial mistakes

Photo by Dave Thompson - Pool/ Three thoughts from yesterday’s win over League One side Fleetwood Town Let’s get the bad out of the way, shall we? What is Jordan Pickford doing... Gareth Southgate must be looking at the match highlights and shaking his head. Two defenders inside the six and Pickford tries to play it out of the back? In a forgettable performance, he did make one quality save on a curling Josh Morris shot. Despite a second half with some clear breakdowns, Everton played well as a team and mostly dampened Fleetwood’s attack on a rain-soaked night. I also have decided...

5 Stats from Everton’s Almost Perfect 5-2 Win Over Fleetwood Town

Photo by Alex Livesey/ An almost flawless win from Everton. But what did the numbers tell us? It was almost perfect. Almost. Everton are into the fourth round of the EFL Cup, but what did the numbers tell us about this 5-2 win over Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town? Flawless First Half Two goals, 79% possession, 13 shots Although facing a League One side, Everton should be applauded for the flawless first-half performance they put in. The Blues absolutely dominated possession (79%), but unlike in the past, this was purposeful possession with a great intensity to the play. The Blues also had...

Ancelotti lets Pickford off the hook, commends Everton overall performance

Photo by ALEX LIVESEY/POOL/AFP via Manager’s comments after Everton sweep Fleetwood aside in Third Round of Carabao Cup On a rainy evening on the northwestern seacoast, Everton overcame a couple of hiccups in the second half to prevail 5-2 against Fleetwood Town, their second consecutive similar scoreline after dispatching West Bromwich Albion by the same margin on Saturday in the Premier League. Carlo Ancelotti decided to play it safer and not send out a completely different lineup from that which took to the pitch over the weekend, making six changes instead of the ten last week...

Nkounkou with another great run, backheel cutback is slammed home, Kean gets his goal. 5-2 now, and there’s the final whistle! On to West Ham United at home next week. 90’ - There’ll be four minutes added on. I think Everton fans will take Pickford making these daft mistakes out of the way in these games. 87’ - Kenny crosses in and Gordon, standing on the edge of the box, meets it perfectly with his right foot and flays the ball wide of the right post. That...

Following a shaky 2019-20, England’s number one’s jitters returned at Highbury Stadium as he conceded a pair of terribly preventable strikes to leave a glaring blot...

Bernard playing a central role looks really good. Unfortunately, he seems to struggle when playing against bigger, faster, better players in that position. 34’ - 2-0!! Richarlison again!

Low shot from outside the box fizzes past the far post. Bernard with a neat little chop and changes foot on the run, fires off a lovely shot that is just past the same post. What’s that, seven chances for the Blues already? 29’ - Miscued shot from Richarlison in the box, that was nearly two. We’re having a laugh in the RBM Slack about Richy’s ‘drought’ being over.
