Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Dec 12 7:00 PM
Big Sam has yet to taste defeat since becoming Toffees boss Well that was fun. Ok, for 77 minutes it wasn’t great. But Wayne Rooney’s leveller, Jurgen Klopp’s meltdown and the furious reaction from Kopites in the ensuing days makes it one of the most satisfying points taken from a derby game for...

Back at it. Hark! Could it be? Is that confidence? Cohesion? It’s the Sam Allardyce effect! Everton have points in four straight games, and will be buoyed by a dogged defensive effort at Anfield. They now face Newcastle United at St. James Park for the first time since Boxing Day, 2015. Let’s lin...

Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Dec 12 9:42 AM
Apparently we fight with Swansea for players now. Vincent Aboubakar of Porto has been strongly linked with Swansea City . In fact, he’s been linked so strongly that even the player thought he was headed there this past July. With the Swans’ goalscoring record beyond abysmal, the team is looking a...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Dec 12 8:48 AM
Media coverage of the case hits new gear. A few days ago we gave an update on the plight of Alfie Evans.

In today’s links: Ladies highlights, Allardyce rips Carragher and pundits agree on DCL penalty You guys, I need help. I think I think I’m starting to actually like Sam Allardyce. I’m sorry.

Winger reflects on his return after a year out It has been a long, long time since Toffees have seen Yannick Bolasie hit the pitch in the royal blue shirt.

Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Dec 12 5:37 AM
Manager to use one-on-ones to make his decision There are a few reasons that Everton decided to go with Sam Allardyce as their next manager, and one of them has to be the no-nonsense manner in which he runs the team’s affairs. After brooking no further argument from Liverpool ’s Jurgen Klopp over...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Dec 11 8:47 PM
Big Sam has done it again. Everton went to Anfield and got a draw against Liverpool . The rest doesn’t really matter, does it? The who and how often fade into the background when it comes to derbies — get a result, and everybody’s happy, even if it’s ugly. And oh boy, was it ugly on Sunday. The T...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Dec 11 4:53 PM
A quick look at how Everton’s loanees did over the weekend It was a mostly quiet weekend for Everton ’s loan contingent as only one found the net and there was a mixed bag of wins, draws and losses across the board. Henry Onyekuru has been in sizzling form lately, and he potted another goal this...

Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Dec 11 9:52 AM
Three Thoughts from a big Derby draw Ugly but effective tactical set up One thing that cannot be expected from a Sam Allardyce managed team is beautiful free-flowing football.

Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Dec 11 8:57 AM
A great day to be a Blue! Snow fell in England on Sunday, causing four WSL games to be called off.

Woso journalist Kieran Theivam pointed out the irony of the...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Dec 11 7:38 AM
In today’s links: Allardyce gushes, Klopp fumes, and the Blues get a hard-earned point. Who else has a Merseyside Derby hangover? What a match.

Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Dec 11 6:28 AM
Match of the Day highlights for the Blues Derby away draw Everton were made to fight hard to keep Liverpool down to one goal, but Sam Allardyce’s faith in his recent squad paid off while Jurgen Klopp’s changes appeared to backfire on him.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Dec 10 4:59 PM
Bravery. It’s understandable if you were frustrated by Sam Allardyce’s game plan in this match, but frankly, it worked. Everton put in an incredibly committed and brave defensive performance, which was nearly undone by a moment of magic by Mohamed Salah. However, a defensive mistake by Dejan Lovr...

Giddy up. Batten down the hatches. Hold your loved ones close, and pour a drink. It’s derby time. Everton enter Anfield in probably their best form of the season.

Everton are on their best run of form since August - but they face their toughest test of the season so far on Sunday 18 years and counting.
