Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Feb 26 5:01 PM
Everton has taken the fun out of sports The last two weeks made me an unabashed curling fanatic. (Yes, this is still Royal Blue Mersey , and yes, we still talk about Everton here — just bear with me for a bit.) Americans were treated to an absolute delight in Olympic men’s curling last week. The...

Poor finishing, the weather, taxes Martians, everyone but him We’ve seen this movie before. Many times this season, and it’s pretty pathetic. Everton travel away against mediocre opposition that’s there for the taking. Sam Allardyce lines his team up to play conservatively, going for a draw. The...
