Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Mar 4 6:40 PM
Blues fail to beat Burnley, fall into lower half of the Premier League table Everton went to Burnley with a chance of beating their hosts and moving up to seventh place. Instead Sam Allardyce’s side frittered away a first half lead to lose 2-1 and now find themselves getting drawn closer and clos...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Mar 4 6:40 PM
Even the manager’s supposed strengths are in question When you hire or support a tactical dinosaur of a manager like Sam Allardyce or Tony Pulis , you’re willingly making a compromise. You’re fully aware that you’re going to suppress a substantial chunk of your attacking potential in order to sol...

Manager’s comments after Blues lose at Burnley The less said about yesterday’s Everton loss the better, but fans will be relieved to hear that manager Sam Allardyce has not changed his tune and continues to pretend that the problems on the pitch are not his own doing. When asked during his post-m...

Come relive the Toffees trip to Turf Moor, and #AllardyceOut We here at Royal Blue Mersey are going to try something a little different when it comes to match recaps. Instead of a basic breakdown of the on-field action, we are going to relive the match the way fans experienced it, both inside and...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Mar 3 2:51 PM
More of the same. Poor tactics. No ambition. Precious little attacking verve. Cowardly defending. Everton Football Club have been reduced to “ Theo Walcott and Gylfi Sigurdsson try stuff while Jordan Pickford has to play Superman”. It doesn’t work. There was a leaked lineup making its way around...

Turkish striker puts Blues ahead at Burnley Everton lead Burnley 1-0 midway through the first half after the January transfer window £27 million signing Cenk Tosun scored his first goal for the Toffees. The Turkish striker has come under some scrutiny lately after Sam Allardyce’s negative comment...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Mar 3 7:38 AM
Can the Toffees bounce back against the plateaued Clarets? Burnley were one of the many teams that capitalized on Everton ’s early season struggles. The team’s first meeting this season was just another example of how the Toffees lack a finishing ability on attack. On that day back in October, Ev...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Mar 3 6:00 AM
Who’s in and who’s out for the Blues at the Clarets Everton are expecting to have their pair of veteran fullbacks return for this game at Burnley . Leighton Baines hasn’t played since being taken off against Southampton in the end of November. Meanwhile, Seamus Coleman did make a return from his...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Mar 2 5:59 PM
You’ll be shocked, I’m sure. Prior to facing his former club this weekend, Aaron Lennon has discussed with Burnley’s website exactly why he left. To our great (or not so great) astoundment, the player has cited a lack of game time under the parade of idiots who have managed Everton this season as...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Mar 2 4:38 PM
We’ve learned our lesson about being optimistic. We at RBM like to think we’re a good place for a lot of Everton content — analysis, news, opinion, satire, you name it really. However, we have a confession to make. We aren’t very good at predictions . Don’t believe me? Inexplicably, eight of our...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Mar 2 3:07 PM
Turf Moor awaits. It would not be too much of a stretch to refer to tomorrow’s match at Burnley as Everton ’s most important of the season. The Blues sit just three points behind the Clarets for 7th place and a potential place in the Europa League again. Everton also have the third easiest schedu...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Mar 2 12:51 PM
This is his biggest payday after all, and milk it he will After showing up half an hour late for his own press conference, Everton manager Sam Allardyce’s latest comments are only going to further infuriate a fanbase that is already weary of his excuses and defiance. When asked if his future at t...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Mar 2 11:30 AM
Answering all of your relevant, and irreverent, Everton questions. You guys have been amazing. In spite of Everton stumbling through the season like a an inebriated co worker at an office party, YOU, the fans, have continued to support (and critique) the Toffees’ efforts. With the season coming t...

In today’s links: Keane looks forward to Burnley return, the U23s to face Brighton and a profile on the Ladies’ Turner Another week of wondering which Everton team will show up on the weekend. The boys looked listless against a mediocre Watford side last week. Now, they face a Burnley team that h...
Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Mar 1 9:26 PM
Is it even fair to judge yet, considering where he’s played? Don’t you hate it when your friends don’t get along? There you are, just wanting to get along with everyone and have a good time, and two people you like are mad at each other. Well, that’s how I feel right now about Ted Knutson and Gyl...

Former Blues’ winger announces his official retirement Much-loved former Everton winger Steven Pienaar announced his retirement from football yesterday, sending Toffees back down memory lane as they reminisced on his two spells with the Blues. With his left sided partner Leighton Baines fading in...
Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Mar 1 4:00 PM
McCarthy could be back sooner than we all expected Right out of the blue, Sam Allardyce dropped two Everton -related bombshells this morning. First - the under-fire manager is making plans for next season already. To be fair, every single Toffee is too, as this disastrous season meanders to a dis...

Shakhtar manager being linked with hopefully-soon-to-be-vacant position at the Toffees After another lifeless, tactical inept, and infuriating loss, Sam Allardyce’s time at Everton is surely coming to a close. He’ll likely survive the rest of the season, with Everton probably having nothing left...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 28 6:48 PM
Sheffield Wednesday midfielder the latest target A lot of the younger talent that Everton have been linked with in recent months have been of the homegrown variety, and the latest name to pop up is an English youngster as well. Sean Clare of Sheffield Wednesday is reportedly being keenly watched...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 28 5:19 PM
Don’t believe the hype, or the media I’m just going to come out and say it right off the bat - Everton can not send Cenk Tosun back to Besiktas on loan this coming summer. I’ll even add, that the only way that is possible is if Sam Allardyce is still the manager of the Toffees, in which case then...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Feb 28 12:16 PM
Allardyce updates Klaassen’s progress in training At this point you’ve got to wonder if it’s just Sam Allardyce. Everton continue to put in one underwhelming performance after another, and apparently Davy Klaassen is doing all the right things in training, but is yet to sniff the matchday squad....

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...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Feb 26 1:00 PM
How did Everton’s on-loan contingent do this weekend? It was a horrible weekend back in action for Everton after their warm weather training break. For their on-loan players though, there were more mixed fortunes. We start with veteran Kevin Mirallas who was at his snide best during Olympiakos’ a...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Feb 26 10:00 AM
It’s simply never his fault, and he won’t hear otherwise This is getting all too predictable. When Everton play well and win, Sam Allardyce claims all the credit for preparing the team and getting the tactics right. And when the Blues are awful and lose, then none of it is his fault and the playe...
