Players provide a glowing testament to the new manager’s ways Things are certainly changing around Everton under the new regime.

Midfielder talks about what the new boss wants. Tom Davies is not a good Premier League player. Just gonna give that a minute to breath.

Sleeve sponsorship takes the next step Let me get a few things out of the way before I continue. 1. I don’t think the Angry Birds logo looks great on the sleeve of Everton ’s kits. 2.

Any day now, Yala. Everton winger Yannick Bolasie has had a bit of a strange summer. Yala’s post-injury form (well, lack thereof) and the arrivals of Richarlison and Bernard meant that his services were no longer needed at Goodison Park. The player clearly was angling for a move that would allow...

Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Aug 20 3:13 PM
Well, see you guys later. One of the themes of this summer has been other clubs being suddenly willing to accept Everton ’s trash surplus.
