Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Jul 31 11:32 PM
No, not that one With just nine days to go until the transfer window closes, time is running out for Everton to bolster their squad. The imminent arrival of Lucas Digne to join fellow new arrival Richarlison is most welcome, but there are still glaring gaps in Marco Silva’s squad. A centre-back i...

Toffees’ biggest question mark remains in the heart of the defence Stats ^ - includes stats at the right back position * - Championship minutes Tactics Yet another managerial change means yet another formation change, somewhat. While Marco Silva’s 4-3-3 is not so different from whatever Sam Allar...

Traditionally a position of strength at Everton, the fullback situation is about to undergo a change Stats Tactics For nearly a decade, Everton has looked to its full-backs to provide width and attacking impetus with bombing runs forward into the attacking third. You’d suspect, at least at this s...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Jul 31 2:02 PM
It’s a strange situation. Henry Onyekuru is on loan to Galatasaray. That is an established fact. It’s also, now, an established fact that despite this loan Valencia came asking about the Everton winger- if Turkish media is to be believed (and that’s always open to conjecture). Here is what Henry...

Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Jul 30 10:53 PM
We’ve really got to stop shopping in the ‘top six flops’ bin Everton ’s desperation to sign a centrehalf with Premier League experience is now assuming farcical proportions.

The Toffees have lots of central midfielders — but do they have enough good ones ?
