Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Feb 13 4:21 PM
The latest left back rumor. Tifo Football recently ran a feature on Aaron Martin Caricol, the left back of Espanyol in Spanish La Liga. The 20 year old has nearly 2000 minutes this season in La Liga and is one of the best young defenders in the league. I’m not entirely convinced that Aaron is the...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Feb 13 9:30 AM
How did Everton’s on-loan contingent do this weekend? It was a tough weekend for most Everton players out on loan, but none had it worse than Kevin Mirallas . The Belgian winger had to leave Olympiakos’ 2-2 draw away at Atromitos after just 39 minutes, sustaining a contusion on his shoulder follo...

In today’s links: Gylfi is hot, Tosun is cold and Everton’s attack is trending up Let’s be honest here for a second. The Winter Olympics just aren’t as good as the Summer Games, but they are still pretty fun. I want to play curling. I want shout “HAAAARD”, and I want to sweep. The figure skating...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Feb 12 6:42 PM
His new hair-do is not the only thing different about him Since bursting into the Premier League spotlight just over a year ago with a spellbinding run and goal against Manchester City , Everton ’s young midfielder Tom Davies has struggled to live up that standard that he’s set for himself. Happi...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Feb 12 5:12 PM
Striker left on the bench again in weekend win We were winning 3-0, things were going really well, the result was totally in hand and Sam Allardyce had a chance to give Cenk Tosun a run out at Goodison Park, and he put in an embattled defensive midfielder instead of a striker that needs something...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Feb 12 9:00 AM
Revenge against the team that kicked them out of the Continental Cup Before Christmas, Everton Ladies crashed out of the quarterfinals of the Continental Cup on penalties against Reading. Sunday, the Blues fought hard in an evenly matched game and got the three points against the Royals in the Wo...

In today’s links: Pickford wants 7th, Ladies beat Reading, Gylfi thinks Arsenal loss was turning point This Everton season is exhausting. Are these guys pretty good or total crap? Watching them from week to week you would have no idea. The top teams in the Premier League routinely embarrass them,...
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 9:23 AM
No one has Gylfi’s shooting boots! As Everton ’s record signing over the summer, Gylfi Sigurdsson is slowly working his way towards showing that he is well worth the about £45m that the Blues shelled out on him. For one, despite being mostly isolated out on the left wing he has drifted inside to...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Feb 11 8:40 AM
Blues already looking past Big Sam Everton had been strongly linked with two manager candidates before Sam Allardyce was appointed to save the club from the horror the 2017-18 season was turning into. The first of those was Watford FC ’ s Marco Silva, with the Blues apparently making four attempt...
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 6:10 PM
A significant response towards the player from the fanbase That was quite emphatic wasn’t it? With Everton cruising at 3-1, Sam Allardyce decided to give all action hero Idrissa Gueye a break and a chance to receive some adulation from the Goodison Park faithful. However, had he known what that w...
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...
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 5:37 PM
Sigurdsson, Niasse and Davies dismiss the Eagles Everton buried Crystal Palace with three goals in the second half, starting right from the whistle.

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...

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 - Sat Feb 10 12:25 AM
Manager talks about Everton’s poor run ahead of key Saturday game Sam Allardyce ’s comments continue to confuse and confound.

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 - Thu Feb 8 7:00 PM
Instead of Mangala we almost had Everton apparently inquired about Espanyol ’s Mario Hermoso during the January window. Catalonian paper Sport did a full write up on this detailing the Toffees’ interest, with the Blues making a €7million and Espanyol’s desire to get at least €15m. Everton didn’t...
Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Feb 8 4:29 PM
We miss you, Bainesy. Everton have been bitten by the injury bug this season - particularly in terms of extended absences - but they are slowly getting back to full health. At his press conference today, Sam Allardyce offered good news on missing left back Leighton Baines : Allardyce confirms Lei...
Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Feb 8 8:41 AM
Answering all of your relevant (even though the team’s not), and irreverent (because you need it) Everton questions. I’ll be honest. These things are getting less and less fun to write by the week. Why?? Well how about I let the fans tell remind you: Don't feel like talking about Everton today -...
Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Feb 8 8:00 AM
In today’s links: David Unsworth turns down Oxford, Walcott backs Big Sam and Everton’s money problem It’s easy to forget about Henry Onyekuru.

Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 7 6:00 PM
Can the Senegalese striker be a starter? The striker situation at Everton under Sam Allardyce has been puzzling. Big Sam came to Everton while young Dominic Calvert-Lewin was the preferred man. DCL’s all-around game has been solid, but his finishing as been suspect at times, and Allardyce made no...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 7 3:30 PM
Veteran left-back speaks about his return, the new manager and more The last Everton player to remain untainted by Sam Allardyce and his toxic tactics says he can’t wait to get back in the fray.

Pretty bold of him Have you ever been in a relationship that both of you know is going to end, and one of the people in that relationship starts making future plans? The idea is that they are trying to set future dates that you two will need to be together for in hopes of extending the relationsh...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 7 9:34 AM
Latest CIES Football Observatory data focuses on transfer windows £201 millions pounds and counting, and what do Everton have to show for it? Out of the cups and Europa League, 7 points above the relegation zone, and 10th place in a surprisingly combative and open Premier League (7th place is onl...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 7 7:00 AM
In today’s links: Tosun is getting comfortable, how the Blues plan to monitor Lookman and what’s left to play for Everton aren’t a whole lot of fun to watch right now, and it’s all being done with known commodities. Why? Because the manager is fighting for his job and wants to show that he is mor...
