Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Jul 17 10:32 PM
HELLO THERE! Don’t worry, friends. The relative lack of rumors on the Everton transfer front appear to have been a smokescreen, as all could be made clear within in a short time. Yes, Papa Marcel knows what he’s doing. Sky Sports dropped a bombshell earlier today with the news that the Blues are...

He may have spent too much time sniffing hair products. Sometimes, when a person was a very good player back in their day, journalists want to hear what they have to say. Many times, those takes are well thought out and appreciated. For instance, rarely has Pele said something that I thought was...

Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Jul 16 6:32 PM
Headed to the Turkish Super Lig. I’m a huge fan of Yannick Bolasie as a person. He’s great for a quote, he’s a great social media follow, always smiling, always positive, I enjoy rooting for him.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Jul 15 2:30 PM
It’s the World Cup Final! BACKGROUND What a World Cup tournament it has been!

Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Jul 15 2:10 PM

Pictures doing the rounds on Twitter of ‘leaked’ images With the new season now barely four weeks away and nary a signing to be seen, are Everton going to release the away and third kits instead?

Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Jul 13 11:17 AM
Is it really a surprise though? I think it’s fair to say that relations between Everton and Watford are a tad frosty right now. The two clubs remain in dispute over Everton’s pursuit of Marco Silva last autumn, which the Hornets cite as the reason why their season began to unravel. Despite sackin...

Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Jul 12 8:42 PM
A bit out of the blue, this. Everton fans have been (justifiably) jonesing for a signing - any signing - this summer, but likely because of the World Cup , things have been moving very slowly on the transfer front. At this point, we’d probably even take a third string goalkeeper. The wait might b...

Barca activate release clause for Lenglet, Mina could leave soon Background ESPN recently rated Barcelona defender Yerry Mina to Everton as a 45% likelihood which is basically no different than you telling a friend ‘maybe he will, maybe he won’t’, and Mina’s agent has come out to say that he has...

Almost home. BACKGROUND It is scarcely believable, but England find themselves in a World Cup semi-final.
