Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Feb 4 3:34 PM
One of the most clueless tactical displays I’ve ever seen from an Everton manager I don’t have a cute introduction for you in this week’s post.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Feb 3 7:30 PM
Humiliation. I wrote this at halftime, scheduled it for the end of the match, and turned off my television.

Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Feb 2 3:59 PM
I think the manager is confused. According to Sam Allardyce , loan signing Eliaquim Mangala - “ is naturally left footed, and we haven’t got a naturally left footed player at all, in the team, or in the squad - apart from Leighton Baines when he gets fit again.” Well Sam that’s not quite true, no...
