Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 17 9:36 AM
A scouting report on Moroccan #10 Hakim Ziyech The name Hakim Ziyech seems to bring up mixed emotions in the Netherlands. The Dutch media revel in tearing the player down - thanks to some misinterpreted comments in 2016 when still at FC Twente that led to him being vilified and resulting in his r...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 17 8:18 AM
Could the World Cup hopeful be on his way out? It’s been a tough year for Everton in the center of defense. Ashley Williams has proven that his age is a number, and the Welshman can no longer be trusted. Phil Jagielka remains timeless, but Michael Keane has been inconsistent after signing for big...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Apr 17 7:00 AM
In today’s links: The U23s lose the Merseyside Derby, Keane backs Pickford and Brands doesn’t want to leave PSV. How much weight should any transfer rumours hold at this point in the year? Everton are connected to half the players in Europe, but there is no real way for them to make a play at any...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Apr 16 4:49 PM
Defender knows what it takes to succeed at the highest level. One of the precious few bright spots and interesting stories of this Everton season has been the returns from injury of Leighton Baines and Yannick Bolasie. The Blues’ long-time left back has rather seamlessly reintegrated into the sid...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Apr 16 9:48 AM
This one stings a lot The stage was set for an Everton Ladies upset over Arsenal today: a packed and enthusiastic crowd showed up at Marine Travel Arena and the Toffees were ready to prove that they deserve more than their 8th place standing in the WSL table. The Blue Girls’ determined performanc...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Apr 16 8:34 AM
PSV lifted the Eredivisie title yesterday with a win over rivals Ajax There was some thought that once PSV Eindhoven would have the Eredivisie title won that sporting director Marcel Brands would make an announcement that he would be leaving for Everton . Well, PSV thrashed rivals Ajax Amsterdam...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Apr 16 7:00 AM
In today’s links: Reaction to Everton’s 1-1 draw with Swansea, the Ladies lose to Arsenal in the FA Cup and Tim Cahill’s thoughts on the Blues. Playing out the string To have lost all hope, simply show up and be satisfied with any result that does not cause substantial harm to the team or players...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 15 3:41 PM
Difficult decisions regarding personnel may be on the horizon There aren’t many positives to take away from a 1-1 draw against Swansea City . The Toffees got plastered for long stretches of the game, and looked totally disjointed at times in the process. I lay that at the feet of Sam Allardyce ,...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 15 10:44 AM
Three Thoughts from Everton draw in Wales yesterday God-awful defending from Everton Not that this is a particularly hot, or new take, but Everton’s defence was once again dreadful. While the center backs were certainly an issue, it was the full backs that were particularly bad against Swansea Ci...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 15 7:00 AM
Mirror reporting that Everton will use super-agent Mino Raiola to bring in players Once again the Mirror is proclaiming loudly that Everton majority shareowner Farhad Moshiri is going to sack Director of Football Steve Walsh and manager Sam Allardyce at the end of this futile season. Previously t...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 15 5:00 AM
Can the underdogs beat an impressive Arsenal side? Everton Ladies are the underdogs going into their FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal Women on Sunday. The Gunners haven’t lost a game since January and recently beat Manchester City 1-0 to become the WSL Cup champions, and have won the FA Cup a re...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 14 9:46 PM
Lifting the Toffees clear of danger means it’s mission accomplished for the former England boss Everton boss Sam Allardyce insists his side have already achieved their main objective this season by avoiding relegation, despite growing supporter frustration at his tenure. A section of the travelli...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 14 6:06 PM
One more game down until the end of the season Everton put in yet another uninspiring performance to draw 1-1 against a Swansea City side who may yet rue the opportunity to claim all three points in their battle against relegation. The Toffees welcomed back Idrissa Gueye in place of Tom Davies af...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 14 9:34 AM
The Toffees look to get back to winning ways against a Swansea side that is still trying to secure safety from the drop. Are Everton ’s road woes behind them? The last time they left the friendly confines of Goodison Park was last month for a trip to face Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium, where t...
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...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 13 7:00 AM
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...
