Some thoughts from the Blues win today In the fourth game of his interim role as Everton manager, David Unsworth once again eschewed any wingers in an attempt for defensive solidity while posing some sort of attacking intent. Here’s some thoughts from the game, in no particular order. Blues start...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Nov 5 3:16 AM
Can the Blues persuade Marco Silva to sign up with some well-play football? Probably not. These two clubs are closely connected at the moment. Forget that they have seemingly switched positions on the Premier League table ( Everton currently in 18th, Watford in 8th), but they both even want the s...

Back at Goodison? David Moyes has now explicitly said that he would be interested in a return to Goodison Park. Frankly, at this point in the Everton season, a return to hard working Moyes-ball doesn’t sound so bad. Here’s what the former Toffee and Manchester United boss had to say: David Moyes...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 4 2:49 PM
Here we go again Another game, another defeat, Everton ’s season continues to spiral uncontrollably towards the abyss. I’m sure I’m not the only supporter finding it hard to pick myself off the floor to look ahead to the next game after each horrendous result. Supporting Everton feels like one lo...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 4 2:29 PM
Will they regret their words? Time passes too quickly on the Internet. Just two weeks ago, many Everton fans had all sorts of disrespectful things to say about the notion that Marco Silva would be a great managerial option. By contrast, many of them were absolutely ready to crown David Unsworth a...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Nov 4 8:06 AM
And we go again. Everton have to win this football match. “Competitive losses” and “moral victories” are no longer acceptable. The R word is nearing the point of being a legitimate discussion. David Unsworth has to pick a winning side. Here’s how he might do it. Tactics and Formation There isn’t...

In today’s links: Williams disappointed, Martina OK, and Allardyce excited Everton are a disaster. It seems that no manager can fix what is well and truly broken at this club.

Three losses in four games ends Europa League campaign I am at a loss, truly. I’m not even sure if this is real life or I’m stuck in some sort of night terror which just keeps repeating itself. I can’t understand how a team that when last in Europe dominantly dispatched one of Germany’s biggest s...
Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Nov 2 8:39 PM
Attacking impotency and defensive frailty see the Blues out of the Europa League.

Answering your most irreverent but relevant Everton questions It’s been a long few weeks for us Toffees.

Assessing the Blues’ personnel options ahead a legitimately do-or-die Europa League match.

Incredible how Gueye isn’t one of the 30 players named The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has released its shortlist for the African Player of the Year award, and conspicuous by his absence is Everton ’s Swiss Army knife Idrissa Gueye.

Our staff has its say on David Unsworth’s make-or-break matches this week Everton ’s firing of Ronald Koeman and temporary appointment of David Unsworth made predicting the Toffees’ matches last week tough work.

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.

Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Oct 31 2:13 PM
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...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Oct 31 10:41 AM
The interim manager proved why he should only be that — interim. Well, you didn’t genuinely expect the optimism to last, did you?

Surely this is not happening, is it? Since Ronald Koeman was sacked as manager of Everton a week ago, a host of names have been linked with the job, and then promptly discarded as well.

Barton has a go at Unsworth. Joey Barton is not intelligent. I’m really not sure why people listen when he talks. But this is an Everton blog and he said something about our manager that that caused our manager to get asked about him so here I am, talking about one of the most useless people in t...

What’s there to learn? Pace A Predictable Problem We knew going into the season that Everton , without Yannick Bolasie and Seamus Coleman , would struggle to find speed.
