Royal Blue Mersey - Mon Apr 9 7:33 AM
In today’s links: the fallout from the boring Merseyside Derby, Everton’s upcoming summer and a pending shakeup. Liverpool had almost nothing to play for, and it showed. Jurgen Klopp’s lineup was clearly of the “B team” variety. The commentary team suggested, multiple times, that the latest itera...

Sure, getting battered for stretches at a time by a Liverpool B-team is embarrassing...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 8 10:00 AM
Has goalie cemented his England starting spot? Everton struggled to beat a weakened Liverpool in this season’s third Merseyside Derby clash, but will be happy that the Blues kept a clean sheet. The defence has completely fallen apart at times in 2018, but goalkeeper Jordan Pickford played a pivot...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Apr 8 8:24 AM
Three Thoughts from Merseyside Derby stalemate Too conservative for too long In just about any other match, Sam Allardyce’s conservative game plan would have been the objectively smart thing to do.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 3:11 PM
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Everton hosted a rotated Liverpool side at Goodison Park today, and for huge portions of the match decided that a derby win wasn’t worth chasing. Whether by instruction or lack of motivation, it was - yet again - embarrassing. On paper, at least, Everton’s lineup made sense,...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 7:42 AM
This is going to be a dull, one-way game After watching Everton standing shellshocked at home shipping three first half goals in just a matter of minutes last weekend against a rampant Manchester City side, manager Sam Allardyce wants to ensure there will not be a repeat of that today against Mer...
Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 6:53 AM
It’s been seven years since the blue side of Merseyside reigned supreme in this rivalry. No matter where either team sits in the standings, this fixtures remains immensely important to both clubs and their supporters.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sat Apr 7 5:40 AM
Who’s in and who’s out for today’s game at Goodison Everton will have midfielder Idrissa Gueye back in the squad following his muscle tear sustained just before the international break.

Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 8:04 PM
We all just want the season to be over, but the neighbours have popped round for a chat I think it’s fair to say the 231st Merseyside derby is an inconvenience for both teams for vastly different reasons. For Liverpool , the fixture is sandwiched between two huge Champions League games against Ma...
Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 7:44 PM
Third and last Merseyside Derby of the season Everton host Liverpool tomorrow in one of the least-to-play-for Merseyside Derbies in recent seasons in Saturday’s early game.

Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 5:34 PM

Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Apr 6 3:00 PM
Do we have to, again? Everton welcome Liverpool to Goodison Park tomorrow, presumably without chucking numerous objects at the team bus. But that’s neither here nor there.

Royal Blue Mersey - Fri Mar 30 7:44 AM
In today’s links: Who will City start? Where will Wilshere end up? And much more! Perhaps I’m alone on this front, but the amount of talk that has gone on about Everton ’s new stadium is ridiculous. It’s gonna happen. Have a little faith in the club that they will respect tradition in the process...
Royal Blue Mersey - Tue Mar 27 3:00 PM
Captain Jagielka speaks about upcoming games against Man City & Liverpool While Everton have struggled to win away from home all season, under Sam Allardyce the Blues have been quite tidy at home.

Royal Blue Mersey - Thu Mar 22 4:00 AM
Blues’ sparkplug suffered a muscle tear at Stoke Eagle-eyed Everton fans would have noticed that something was amiss with Idrissa Gueye last weekend. He seemed a step off the pace at snowy Stoke City , and most of us dismissed it as the midfielder was coming back from illness that caused him to m...
