Palace will not give up Zaha without a fight and a lot of money Crystal Palace are sticking to their guns over Wilfried Zaha , so his suitors are now going to have to come up with other ways of sweetening the pot. Depending on who you ask, the London side have slapped a £60-70million price tag on...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Jul 15 10:40 AM
Says the player is not for sale. According to one Roy Hodgson, Wilfried Zaha is not for sale. The former Three Lions and Liverpool manager has put out a rather emphatic statement that the forward linked with Everton is under a long term contract and will not be moving anywhere. Speaking at a pres...

Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 14 5:38 AM
Warm weather training camp in midwinter is a new-ish tradition Having neatly disposed of Crystal Palace 3-1 and then participated in a glittering ceremony last night celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fantastic work done by Everton in the Community (EitC), the team jets off for some warm wea...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Feb 11 5:32 PM
But has he found a long-term solution? The center of midfield shouldn’t ever be a problem area for Everton . Last season, Idrissa Gueye and Morgan Schneiderlin were elite box-to-box and deep-lying ball-distributing midfielders, respectively. The Toffees have two promising young central midfielder...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Feb 11 7:45 AM
Three thoughts from Everton’s win over a depleted Palace Everton ’s attack breaks through Everton have been largely ineffective in the opposing half for the majority of this season. Regardless of manager, Everton have struggled to put goals in the opponents’ net. Thanks to huge performances from...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Feb 11 6:00 AM
Midfielder came on to a chorus of boos Despite a comfortable win for Everton over Crystal Palace yesterday, the game was marred late on when a very vocal Goodison Park roundly booed the introduction of midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin with barely ten or so minutes left to go and the score at 3-1. T...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Feb 10 5:38 PM
Unrelated to previous leg break though Seamus Coleman left the game at halftime in Everton ’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace , and was replaced by Jonjoe Kenny. It seemed a puzzling substitution at the time, especially since he had been playing pretty well and the combination with Theo Walcott on th...

Sigurdsson, Niasse and Davies dismiss the Eagles Everton buried Crystal Palace with three goals in the second half, starting right from the whistle. Gylfi Sigurdsson opened the scoring within a minute of play resuming, his shot from outside the box might have taken a slight deflection but it went...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Feb 10 5:37 PM
So much better. Everton found their footing again today, easing past Crystal Palace at Goodison Park by a 3-1 scoreline. Gylfi Sigurdsson, Oumar Niasse, and Tom Davies got the goals, and it was an excellent team performance, particularly in the second half. It was a nightmare first half for Evert...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Feb 10 9:30 AM
The Toffees hope to rebound from an embarrassing loss to Arsenal a week ago If Everton are going to make a run towards seventh place in the Premier League, now is the time to start. Crystal Palace enter the game in 14th-place in the Premier League. The Eagles have turned around a horrid start to...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Feb 10 5:23 AM
Who’s in and who’s out for this weekend’s clash Ramiro Funes Mori played 45 minutes earlier this week for the Everton Under-23s, but could be in the reckoning for Saturday’s squad after being left out of the team for the Premier League Cup yesterday. Meanwhile, Sam Allardyce revealed during his p...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Feb 9 9:20 PM

Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Feb 9 9:31 AM
Licking our wounds. Everton are back at Goodison Park tomorrow, returning with their tail tucked well between their legs after a 5-1 hiding at the hands of Arsenal . The Gunners certainly played well, but in large part were enabled to do so by a nonsensical team selection from Sam Allardyce . Has...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Feb 9 9:30 AM
Apparently no personal apology was ever made There’ll be another interesting angle when Everton host Crystal Palace this weekend. Apart from the fact that the Blues manager Sam Allardyce had previously been in charge at Selhurst Park before current boss Roy Hodgson, the two also have a bit of an...
Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Feb 8 8:53 PM
Do the Toffees have a bounce-back game in them? Everton may not play more different consecutive matches this season than last week’s drubbing against Arsenal and this week’s match against Crystal Palace . The Arsenal match saw the Toffees travel to a place they’ve not won in since the mid-90s, ag...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Nov 20 4:00 PM
The Rhino’s tactics are getting more and more laughable Everton deserved to lose to Crystal Palace on Saturday — and it wasn’t particularly close. An Eagles side playing two wingers at striker, a midfield four composed entirely of central midfielders, and Julian Speroni in goal dominated Everton...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Nov 20 6:28 AM
Forward fights back against accusations A minute into the game on Saturday at Crystal Palace and Everton were reeling once again. For the fifteenth time in seventeen games the Blues had conceded first, and going down a goal away from Goodison Park it looked like it was all over when the game had...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Nov 19 11:44 AM
Three Thoughts from yesterday’s game Terrible weather, terrible match, terrible result Everton may have lost by higher margins in other matches this season, but this may take the cake for worst match that I’ve watched this year. At least when Everton have lost to top-six teams, there is the benef...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 18 6:56 PM
Everton fight back twice to take a point in South London Everton twice fought back to draw at Selhurst Park today, putting in another alarming performance in the process. A Leighton Baines penalty and Oumar Niasse goal helped Everton to take a point away from the Premier League’s bottom club Crys...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 18 6:56 PM
Manager’s post-match comments reflect team’s desperation Everton clawed back twice away at Crystal Palace to pick up a point against the bottom team in the Premier League, in the process dropping to 16th themselves. A poor first half saw the Blues twice go behind while the hosts dominated and cou...

Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 18 4:53 PM
why was any of that All of us suffered through a dire Everton match at Crystal Palace ’s Selhurst Park today. The final score was 2-2, and it was flattering to the Blues. I’m sorry that you’ve chosen to read about it. Everton’s lineup - for once - made great sense on paper from the start, but in...

Who’s in and who’s out for Blues trip to London Everton all-action midfielder Tom Davies is fit again after withdrawing from the England Under-21 team over the international break with a hamstring issue. The Blues will have another player back, with defender Cuco Martina having recovered from his...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 18 3:27 AM
The Toffees return from the international break with a matchup they must get three points from against Crystal Palace. Everton should not be 15th in the Premier League. Yes, they have been bad and deserve to be there, but this squad is too good to be that far down the table. Crystal Palace , on t...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 18 12:42 AM
Can Everton pick up three more points on London trip? Everton made a famous comeback last time they were in Premier League action, scoring three unanswered goals to win 3-2 at home against Watford FC . This weekend they travel to Crystal Palace to take on an embattled team scrapping for any point...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Nov 17 6:25 PM
The failure to appoint a permanent manager means Unsworth has another opportunity to prove himself The end of the international break is usually welcomed by most supporters. But for Everton ians, I suspect they wish it could go on for a little bit longer. The breathless win over Watford a fortnig...
