Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Oct 3 2:31 PM
Hard pass. No thank you. One of the common refrains from Everton fans already this season is that the club desperately need to buy yet another striker in January, this despite the Blues already having Cenk Tosun, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Oumar Niasse. The thinking, I suppose, goes something lik...

The Cup curse continues. Everton ’s league cup malaise continued today at home against Southampton , this time by way of a limp 1-1 (3-4 penalties) loss.

Toffees dismal League Cup run continues Live Blog Full time: Everton just made it hard on themselves today. Certainly should not have lost to Southampton at home. Made too many changes to a winning side and then the penalty debacle. Great save on Walcott’s penalty, but Richarlison should be very...

Icelandic star proves his worth in unnoticed ways. We heard it all week.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Sep 29 5:00 PM
That was quite enjoyable. Everton struggled through the opening frame today at home to Fulham, but no matter - apparently 90 minutes worth of effort and goals can be fit into just 45.
