2018-19 Everton Report Cards: Gylfi Sigurðsson

A much better season, if far from perfect, for the Blues forward than the previous year Next up in our player by player review of the past Everton season, in which each individual will be recapped and rated is: Gylfi Sigurðsson Summary After a first year at Goodison Park was beset by injuries, playing out of position and the wing and the ghastly brands of football of Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce, Gylfi Sigurðsson’s second term on Merseyside was undoubtedly far more successful. The Iceland international arrived from Swansea in August 2017 with a £45 million price tag on his head, and...

Everton 2018-19 Season Review: Marco Silva’s defending tactics

Marco Silva came to Everton with an underwhelming defensive record in the Premier League, but finished with one of the league’s best defensive totals this season. What went right? I started my review of Marco Silva and Everton’s attacking tactics yesterday by considering just how dire things had looked under Sam Allardyce in 2017-18. At the risk of beating a dead horse, I think that’s a good place to start a review of Everton’s defensive tactics as well. Sam Allardyce took over at Everton largely based on his reputation as a manager who could browbeat his teams into competent...

Everton 2018-19 Season Review: Marco Silva’s attacking tactics

Everton scored the second-most goals among clubs outside the top six. How did Silva help them get there? I don’t know about you, but I like to pretend that the Sam Allardyce reign at Everton never really happened. It was dull, embarrassing, and incredibly frustrating. Under Allardyce (and Ronald Koeman and David Unsworth earlier in the season), Everton scored just 44 goals in 38 Premier League matches. Crystal Palace didn’t score a Premier League goal until its eighth match of the season and finished with 45! It’s easy to forget though, that on the whole, Everton’s form under...

2018-19 Everton Report Cards: Cenk Tosun

It was a frustrating first full season in England in front of goal for the Turk Next up in our player by player review of the past Everton season, in which each individual will be recapped and rated is: Cenk Tosun Summary As much as the vast majority of Evertonians have wanted it to, Cenk Tosun’s career at Goodison Park has just never got going. Signed from Besiktas for £27 million in January 2018, he was cited by then-manager Sam Allardyce as the key to steering the Blues further clear of any lingering relegation worries. Tosun’s work rate has never come under question, and his...
