Everton vs Manchester United: Instant Reaction

Everton vs Manchester United: Instant Reaction

Quick reaction to Blues home game against United Everton maintained their home unbeaten record today, but dropped more points in a 1-1 draw against Manchester United. Despite an improved performance in the second half, the Blues are missing a spark and fortune has not been their friend in this streak as they remain with one win in the last ten games. Ronald Koeman made three changes to the side from last week, taking off Phil Jagielka, Ross Barkley, and Aaron Lennon - with Ramiro Funes Mori, Tom Cleverley and Kevin Mirallas taking their spots respectively in a 4-3-3 formation. The home...

Ronald Koeman wants Van Dijk reunion at Everton

The Everton boss is targeting the Southampton defender. According to the Mirror, Everton manager Ronald Koeman is planning a reunion with Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk. After a strong start to the season, the Blues defence has crumbled in recent weeks, conceding seven in their last three games. Captain Phil Jagielka has come in for stern criticism, with many believing the England man is now past his best and needs to be replaced. It seems Koeman is of a similar mind and the Mirror reports he is keen on his former defender Virgil Van Dijk. The Dutchman has been a star performer...

Jagielka receives warning from Koeman

Manager comes down hard on captain in wake of poor form Everton are in the midst of a poor streak of form, mustering one win in their last eight Premier League games. A big part of their woes have come from defensive instability, that has seen them losing their mantle as one of the stingiest defences in Europe. Club captain Phil Jagielka has had a role to play there, looking very shaky in recent times. He has conceded three penalties and has been culpable for a few more goals in recent weeks and questions are being asked about his status in the starting eleven. Manager Ronald Koeman...

Everton vs Southampton: Ronald Koeman warns Phil Jagielka to get his act together and start playing like an England man

The hard–line Everton boss, once again, proved he does not have a problem publicly criticising players.

Everton 1 Swansea City 1: Another disappointing result for the Toffees

Three thoughts from yesterday's draw Jagielka should no longer be a lock to start As difficult as it is for me to say, I think we’ve reached the point where club captain Phil Jagielka should not be an automatic choice to start. Naturally, decisions such as this are tough to make, especially for someone that has been so important to Everton over the years. But Jags is quickly becoming a liability in front of goal. His instincts may still be there, but his body doesn’t seem capable of keeping up with the opposing attackers. Yet again, the skipper pulled down an opposing player in the box...

Everton vs. Swansea start time, TV schedule, live stream and how to watch online

It’s the Ashley Williams Derby! Today begins Everton’s most intense run of games this season. It will see them play nine games in the span of 43 days, intertwined with the holidays. It will very likely be this month and a half of action that will decide whether or not the Toffees have a chance to challenge for European football. The depth and the age of the roster could certainly come under scrutiny during this time. Some of the team’s biggest contributors are getting long in the tooth: Phil Jagielka (34 years old), Ashley Williams (32), Leighton Baines (nearly 32), Gareth Barry...

Koeman has no problem with Jagielka in Rooney fiasco

Manager has spoken to the club captain Ronald Koeman said today that he has had a conversation with Everton club captain Phil Jagielka over his participation in the drinking furor that has engulfed his England teammate Wayne Rooney. Rooney was photographed apparently drunk on his day off while still on international duty, and this has turned into a nation-wide scandal. During his pre-match press conference earlier today, Koeman said - “I spoke to Phil, but it was not only this, but many other aspects of football. In the case of Rooney it’s not my problem, he’s a Manchester United...

Jagielka breaks Ball’s record for England caps

First Evertonian with 40 caps for the Three Lions As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Everton club captain Phil Jagielka earned his 40th cap for England yesterday when he came on as a second half substitute against Spain in a friendly. With that appearance, he passed club legend Alan Ball who had the previous highest for any Everton player with the Three Lions after earning 39 caps. Ball was famously the Man of the Match at the 1966 World Cup Final, to date England’s greatest success on the international stage. He ended his career with 72 caps, but only 39 were earned while he was with...
