Everton veteran calls for patience with inconsistent teammate

Everton veteran calls for patience with inconsistent teammate

Defender knows what it takes to succeed at the highest level. One of the precious few bright spots and interesting stories of this Everton season has been the returns from injury of Leighton Baines and Yannick Bolasie. The Blues’ long-time left back has rather seamlessly reintegrated into the side, but the Congolese winger has struggled off and on. Bolasie does have a goal in the last few weeks, but has also looked a step off the pace physically and poor in his service and first touch. Baines, for his part, is encouraging all parties to show a measure of patience with Bolasie as he...

Swansea 1-1 Everton

Swansea 1-1 Everton

One more game down until the end of the season Everton put in yet another uninspiring performance to draw 1-1 against a Swansea City side who may yet rue the opportunity to claim all three points in their battle against relegation. The Toffees welcomed back Idrissa Gueye in place of Tom Davies after the midfielder’s substitute appearance last weekend. However, his return failed to add anything to the Blues’ midfield as the hosts started the strongest. Swansea should have been ahead during a dominant spell in the first period but Leighton Baines and Cenk Tosun were alert to clear efforts...

Everton eye £25million raid for West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell

Cresswell is a Liverpudlian and heralds from the Tranmere Rovers academy. […]

Everton’s full-back story remains unchanged

Everton’s full-back story remains unchanged

It’s been a season of injury and upheaval at a traditionally strong position. With a week off due to the international break, RBM is taking a look at where Everton stands at each position across the pitch with just seven matches to play. Who is in good standing? Who needs to prove themselves? Who are some potential transfer targets at the position — and how badly are they needed? Today, we’re taking a look at the club’s situation at full-back. Over the past five or so years, full-back has been Everton’s obvious position of strength. Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines are among...

Wednesday’s Toffee Bites: Everton could battle Spurs for Luke Shaw

Wednesday’s Toffee Bites: Everton could battle Spurs for Luke Shaw

In today’s links: Walcott praises Tosun, Koeman faces England and more manager rumours. The future of Everton at left back is a complete mystery. Leighton Baines, now healthy and with a real winger in front of him, has looked reinvigorated. The 33-year-old is no longer a part of the England set up and is certainly on the downside of his impressive career, but the man can still play. At the same time, Antonee Robinson is going to push for playing time next season. The 20-year-old has been good enough with Bolton Wonderers to merit being included in the United States senior team this...
