Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Mar 7 4:00 PM
Shane Duffy grateful to the Toffees as he prepares to step out at Goodison Park with Brighton I’m sure the irony won’t be lost on Everton ians that, with their own defence floundering, an academy graduate could be about to give them a timely reminder of what they are missing. I think it’s fair to...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Mar 7 2:45 PM
Can the Blues afford to sell? He’s not played a single senior minute yet after a long term knee injury, but that’s not stopping Italian club Lazio from being interested in the services of Ramiro Funes Mori, according to Il Tempo ( via SportWitness ): With a need to replace Stefan De Vrij, who wil...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Mar 7 11:21 AM
Manager’s latest comments show his utter ignorance Sam Allardyce has never had a reputation for giving youth a chance to play at the various stops of his bottom-feeding managerial career. At Everton , Ademola Lookman, Sandro Ramirez and Nikola Vlasic learned that soon enough. The only youngsters...
Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Mar 7 7:33 AM
In today’s links: Funes Mori is ready to return, the U18s draw with Wolves and what’s happened to Vlasic? Everton, it seems, have a nice youth setup. Their U-23 team won the Premier League 2 title last season. In the current campaign, they find themselves in fourth place in the table, well within...

Avert your eyes. Click on an image to enlarge the Pulitzer-worthy captions. Please clap. It’s not been an enjoyable season for Everton fans. That much is obvious. At this point, we’re all ready for it to end. There’s a World Cup to watch, a manager to fire, and exciting players to recall from loa...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Mar 6 11:00 AM
Allardyce is an understandable lightning rod for all that is wrong at Everton at present, but the club’s problems go way beyond the manager’s dugout Saturday March 3, 2018 may well be the day when Everton ian patience finally snapped. After yet another miserable performance the supporters made th...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Mar 6 9:25 AM
Disappointing how the Toffees are not being as supportive of Connolly as they should Everton have a whopping sixteen players out on loan in this second half of the season. Considering the senior side is as terrible as it is, that’s either a bad sign that the management has no idea who they should...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Mar 6 7:42 AM
In today’s links: Pienaar loves Baines, analysis on Everton’s loss to Burnley and more manager rumours The thought of Arsene Wenger becoming Everton ’s next manager has my head spinning.

The fullback was...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Mar 5 5:30 PM
Discussing the possibility of the long time Arsenal manager at Goodison Park. One of the great parts about working at Royal Blue Mersey is the editorial discussions that happen behind the scenes on our Slack channel. On any given day, there’s absolutely no telling what might be going on. The meme...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Mar 5 3:30 PM
He would easily be the best manager we’d ever had. According to a report by the Daily Star , Farhad Moshiri wants to hire Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. Now, I don’t consider this report especially reliable or this situation particularly likely, but in a world where the Gunners get rid of their most...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Mar 5 2:30 PM
How did Everton’s on-loan contingent do this weekend? It was another mixed bag for Everton ’s exports out in the world of football. The Blues find themselves in a season-ending crisis with the current run of horrid results, no shape or identity and the manager’s position once again under the spot...
Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Mar 5 7:39 AM
In today’s links: Everton lose to Burnley, Arteta for manager and Moshiri under the microscope There are no words left. This Everton team is a disgrace. Sam Allardyce needs to go. He no longer cares about wins or losses. He’s coaching out the string and cashing checks. The defense is a sieve. The...
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...
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 11:42 AM
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...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Mar 3 5:00 PM
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...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Mar 3 1:55 PM
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...

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...

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...
