Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Dec 3 5:54 PM
Big Sam’s first match in charge brought a coherent plan, and three points with it. For most of the season, I’ve insisted that Everton needs to actively make three tactical decisions in order to find success. Those were: Play two true wingers Use Gylfi Sigurdsson as a central attacking midfielder...

Answering all of your relevant, and irreverent, Everton questions. What an odd feeling.

Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Nov 30 8:00 PM
I think The word of the day is optimism. Farhad Moshiri has laid down large sums of money to get a new manager and his staff, and this will be, for better or worse, the crew that determines Everton’s fate this season. So, without being unrealistic, we’re going to look at the positives, and Craig...

Not again. Everton head down to London for what is arguably their biggest game of the season so far.
