Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 7:30 PM
With little to play for the remaining six games of the season, thoughts are already drifting towards the summer It says much about Everton ’s performances this year that most of the attention during the final few weeks of the season will be off the pitch rather than on it. Once again Everton find...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 5:40 PM
Manager’s pre-match comments ahead of trip to Swansea City The way Sam Allardyce speaks about next season at Everton almost makes one worried that he has received some kind of reassurance that he will be allowed to see out the second year of his one-and-a-half-season contract. But then that doesn...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 4:00 PM
Everton to get a win away from Goodison? We all know the age-old question — what happens when an unstoppable force meets and immovable object? I’m not sure exactly what the inverse of this question is, but it surely is embodied by Everton ’s upcoming match against Swansea City . Swansea is, well,...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 3:34 PM
Manager’s comments from pre-match press conference earlier today Interest in Everton ’s season is just about over with five dead rubber games left to play. The fanbase apathy for the remaining late season games is like the latter two years of Roberto Martinez ’ tenure when the Blues finished in 1...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 3:01 PM
Blues at Swans as hosts look to steer clear of drop zone Everton have little to play for with seventh spot pretty much gone now, so it’s amusing to hear Sam Allardyce talking about getting the players motivated to finish the season strong - he wasn’t able to do it when something was at stake, wha...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 3:00 PM
On the road again Everton travel to Wales tomorrow with an eye on keeping their semi-decent away form intact. There isn’t much left to play for this season, but slaying the road bogeyman before rolling into next year could prove crucial. Neither Gylfi Sigurdsson or Ashley Williams (most likely) w...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 9:00 AM
Answering all of your relevant, and irreverent, Everton questions. If the Merseyside Derby happens and almost no one takes interest, did it really happen? Sandwiched between Liverpool ’s eventually successful Champions League quarterfinal tie with Manchester City , and on the same day as a possib...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 8:52 AM
Defender Marcos Senesi is raising some eyebrows in Europe Whoever has been working the Argentina beat from Everton ’s international scouting department has certainly been busy the last few months. After getting the Blues to make a move for fullback Frank Fabra of Boca Juniors, the next name that...

In today’s links: The sack is coming for Big Sam, the end of the season brings big decisions, the Ladies prep for the FA Cup semis. How are we feeling ahead of Everton ’s match with Swansea City at the weekend? The boys are headed on the road to take on a team that, on paper, they are superior to...
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...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Apr 11 9:34 AM
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.

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.

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...
