How are the Blues’ new boys looking? With the doldrums of the international break in full swing, we thought it a good time to start reviewing Everton ’s big summer signings.

The two defenders are praised far and wide by teammates and coaches.

The two defenders have been rocks at the back for the Blues, and this week a...

Steve Walsh opens up on two of this summer’s acquisitions.

Royal Blue Mersey - Wed Oct 4 8:00 AM
The names being linked with the Blues get wilder and wackier As if the reports earlier this summer linking Christian Benteke to Everton weren’t bad enough, the Guardian are linking Everton with a £20 million move for ex-Red Andy Carroll . Benteke is capable of doing positive soccer-related things...

Provides manager some respite with calls for his head growing louder While international breaks tend to be the bane of Premier League football, the October break is one that could not have come too soon for Everton manager Ronald Koeman .

Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Oct 3 8:00 PM
Koeman has decent options, if he’d only be willing to use them. I have been very critical of Ronald Koeman this season. Actually — maybe very critical isn’t strong enough of a characterization. Every tactical analysis following a Premier League match this season has included some harsh criticism...

Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Oct 3 3:52 PM
Defender staying strong during crisis Of all the new boys that Everton brought into the squad over the summer, it’s arguable that ex- Burnley man Michael Keane has been the pick of the lot so far. The Englishman is deft on the ball, strong in the air, and the most assured central defender that th...

Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Oct 3 10:04 AM
Match for match, we’re not very different than last season So that wasn’t much fun. Despite looking and playing better than in any match since the Manchester City draw, Everton lost once again. To Burnley . Not exactly confidence-inspiring. All of this has led to real talk about Ronald Koeman ’s...

Three thoughts for yet another shoddy performance Sunday Line-up changes fail to make a difference Ronald Koeman opted for a very different set-up compared to what we’ve seen so far this season.
