Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Oct 31 6:06 PM
Is the Cruyffian philosophy dead? I would argue that Johann Cruyff is the most important tactical figure in the history of the sport of football. His impact on the game is unquestionably being felt even though it has now been a year and a half since his death. The man known for inspiring ‘total f...

Money has been no object for Moshiri’s Merseyside millionaires If Everton ’s interest in Sean Dyche is indeed real, then it shouldn’t be too difficult to get the manager the Blues want as long as Dyche himself is willing to make the switch. The price to prise him away from Turf Moor has been reve...

The interim manager proved why he should only be that — interim. Well, you didn’t genuinely expect the optimism to last, did you?

Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Oct 26 7:22 PM
