When will the winger make his return? When healthy, Yannick Bolasie is one of Everton ’s best wide attackers.

We suffered with you, Gerard. Over the past few years of Everton football, it feels safe to say that Gerard Deulofeu has been one of the most mercurial and polarizing players that have come through the doors of Finch Farm. The Spaniard was either deeply loved or deeply hated, and there seemed to...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Nov 21 3:46 PM
Oh now we’re really livid!

The new rule put in place for this season allows fo...
