Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Apr 12 7:00 AM
In today’s links: Pickford aims higher, links to Kagawa and Baines is still pretty good for an old guy. This is getting confusing. Last week, we were led to believe that a decision was not being made regarding Sam Allardyce ’s future until after the season. But then there was an influx of rumours...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Apr 11 5:31 PM
Arsenal man’s contract issues at the Emirates persist. For what looks to be the second summer in a row, Everton appear set to sign a broken, overrated, and positionally ambiguous English midfielder (hi Wayne!). According to football.london , Jack Wilshere is unhappy that Arsenal have suggested he...

Besiktas fans still remember him fondly Even before Cenk Tosun was on Everton ’s radar we knew Turkish fans were as radical and hardcore as they come. And as the Blues pursuit of the striker ramped up leading into the January transfer window , we got to see first hand how much they love their foo...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Apr 11 7:34 AM
In today’s links: The U18s lose, Rooney’s is not undroppable, and Mathis returns from loan. There is one little ounce of me that truly believes Everton have a plan for the summer ahead. That tiny pebble of hope tells me that they have their manager of the future in mind and he already knows three...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 10 11:33 PM
Watford’s Richarlison could be on the move this summer After a hot start to the Premier League season, Brazilian forward Richarlison has gone cold since before Christmas. However, all that has done is stoke the ardor of some teams pursuing the Watford player, with Manchester United , Chelsea and...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 10 6:15 PM
Williams returns with Tykes in trouble Everton loanee Joe Williams proved to be a revelation in the Championship for Barnsley, breaking into the first team and becoming one of their key players as the season went along. However, as reported by the BBC , the midfielder has now returned to the Blue...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 10 5:25 PM
An improvement over Fat Sam? The last time Laurent Blanc managed a club, it was the constantly on the brink of something at Paris St. Germain. He was not able to take Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edison Cavani, and company to the promised land, and eventually enough was enough. According to a France Footb...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 10 9:00 AM
Blues do not need this fullback It appears Belgian internationals have an inexplicable deep-rooted longing to play for Everton . Between Marouane Fellaini, Kevin Mirallas and Romelu Lukaku the Blues had the Red Devils covered for a few years. The Roberto Martinez took on the national team job and...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 10 8:00 AM
Silly season is in full effect Transfer rumours tend to take on a life of their own, and the less they make sense the more popular they seem to get. The rumours saying that Everton are in for Japanese attacking midfielder Shinji Kagawa are exactly that - unfounded rumours. Multiple sources have b...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 10 7:00 AM
In today’s links: The U23s lose, Pienaar settling back in with Everton and Big Sam to meet with Rooney. It seems odd that the first serious transfer link to emerge for Everton ahead of this summer is for a top level right back. Sure, the Blues could use quality all over the pitch, but things seem...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Apr 9 2:43 PM
Sam’s lack of self awareness is incredible. Sam Allardyce is getting fired this summer. I know it, you know it, the mouse that wears an extremely tiny Jose Baxter jersey and lives under the Kendall End knows it, but Sam apparently has no idea. In his latest stumbling comments, Big Sam has declare...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Apr 9 7:33 AM
In today’s links: the fallout from the boring Merseyside Derby, Everton’s upcoming summer and a pending shakeup. Liverpool had almost nothing to play for, and it showed. Jurgen Klopp’s lineup was clearly of the “B team” variety. The commentary team suggested, multiple times, that the latest itera...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 8 8:45 PM
Everton look to be beginning their summer revamp early PSV general manager Toon Gerbrands has confirmed Everton have spoken to technical director Marcel Brands over a move to Goodison Park. Sky Sports News reported last week that Brands was set to join the Toffees once PSV had secured the Eredivi...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 8 5:00 PM
Changes in the center of midfield nearly salvaged the Merseyside Derby If you had offered a scoreless draw to Everton supporters for the majority of Saturday’s Merseyside Derby, many probably would have taken it. Sure, getting battered for stretches at a time by a Liverpool B-team is embarrassing...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 8 3:24 PM
Interest popping up from other clubs for Big Sam (as fans rejoice) As the 2017-18 draws to a close, the amount of media speculation over Sam Allardyce’s future at Everton continues to increase exponentially, with the embattled manager lashing out at just about every opportunity over fan reaction...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 8 10:00 AM
Has goalie cemented his England starting spot? Everton struggled to beat a weakened Liverpool in this season’s third Merseyside Derby clash, but will be happy that the Blues kept a clean sheet. The defence has completely fallen apart at times in 2018, but goalkeeper Jordan Pickford played a pivot...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 8 8:24 AM
Three Thoughts from Merseyside Derby stalemate Too conservative for too long In just about any other match, Sam Allardyce’s conservative game plan would have been the objectively smart thing to do. As Everton try to claw their way further up the table in the closing weeks of the season, a point a...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 3:33 PM
Manager’s comments after 0-0 game that briefly entertained This was always the derby game that neither team really wanted to play, and with the torrential downpour drenching Goodison Park for most of the time, it was not surprising that this became the first ever Merseyside Derby in Premier Leagu...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 3:11 PM
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Everton hosted a rotated Liverpool side at Goodison Park today, and for huge portions of the match decided that a derby win wasn’t worth chasing. Whether by instruction or lack of motivation, it was - yet again - embarrassing. On paper, at least, Everton’s lineup made sense,...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 3:11 PM
Grade the Everton players and manager on their performance today Lineups Everton Starting XI: Pickford; Baines, Keane, Jagielka, Coleman; Schneiderlin, Davies, Rooney; Bolasie, Tosun, Walcott. Subs: Robles, Martina, Gueye, Funes Mori, Baningime, Calvert-Lewin, Niasse Liverpool Starting XI: Karius...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 7:42 AM
This is going to be a dull, one-way game After watching Everton standing shellshocked at home shipping three first half goals in just a matter of minutes last weekend against a rampant Manchester City side, manager Sam Allardyce wants to ensure there will not be a repeat of that today against Mer...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 6:53 AM
It’s been seven years since the blue side of Merseyside reigned supreme in this rivalry. No matter where either team sits in the standings, this fixtures remains immensely important to both clubs and their supporters. Everton , currently in ninth place in the league, need to earn points if they a...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 5:40 AM
Who’s in and who’s out for today’s game at Goodison Everton will have midfielder Idrissa Gueye back in the squad following his muscle tear sustained just before the international break. Gana was sorely missed during last week’s debacle against Manchester City as the pivot pair of Morgan Schneider...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 9:27 PM
Liverpool manager expecting rough stuff from the Blues Everton host Liverpool in the Goodison leg of the Merseyside Derby, and the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is concerned that the Blues will bring their physical game tomorrow. Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the German seemed to insinu...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 8:04 PM
We all just want the season to be over, but the neighbours have popped round for a chat I think it’s fair to say the 231st Merseyside derby is an inconvenience for both teams for vastly different reasons. For Liverpool , the fixture is sandwiched between two huge Champions League games against Ma...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 7:44 PM
Third and last Merseyside Derby of the season Everton host Liverpool tomorrow in one of the least-to-play-for Merseyside Derbies in recent seasons in Saturday’s early game. The Blues are playing out the dead rubber part of the schedule while the visitors have bigger fish to fry in the Champions L...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 5:34 PM
Do we have any reason for optimism? A week after a match against Manchester City went pretty much how we all expected, Everton faces another stiff test — Liverpool at Goodison Park. And as always, we at Royal Blue Mersey are here to provide predictions ahead of this match, even if the reality of...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 3:00 PM
Do we have to, again? Everton welcome Liverpool to Goodison Park tomorrow, presumably without chucking numerous objects at the team bus. But that’s neither here nor there. The home derby represents one of if not the last chance to make something memorable from a season that’s made us want to take...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 2:50 PM
The Everton manager is either deluded or blissfully unaware of the growing resentment towards him from the fanbase If Sam Allardyce set out to wind-up the Everton supporters in his pre- Liverpool press conference he passed with flying colours. The Toffees manager was at his belligerent best as he...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 7:47 AM
In today’s links: Tosun may win an award, Rooney texted Ferdinand and how much Barkley’s agent got in the deal Expectations are rather low for Everton in this weekend’s derby. That’s fair. What have the Blues shown this season that would lead anyone to believe they are close to Liverpool ’s level...
