    2020/21 Carlo Ancelotti

    Been a Blue since finding Everton just before the start of Martinez' first season here, when we finally got matches on TV in the US. There were two teams we had not beaten since that day. Now there is just one. I reckon Don Carlo will fix that this season as well.

    USA and South America Market Growth

    We'll see what they can do. Because adidas/Puma/Nike all have their own stores, they get coverage. Hummel might have issues - will be a harder find here than most. Not sure if there is a (Richard's - because the actual store name sets off the bad word filter) equivalent. Keeping my eyes peeled...

    USA and South America Market Growth

    3 years in Paraguay when we had Antolin Alcaraz - terrible with us, but a hero there after a WC goal, spent probably 6-7 weeks in Argentina during the Funes Mori times, 3 years in Bogota, all of Mina's time with us, and now been in Brazil for 3 weeks. Only other EFC shirt I've seen was one I...

    2019/20 Richarlison

    This guy is, by nature, everything that best embodies Everton off the pitch. Mother of three facing hard times... Richie answers the call.

    Looks pretty good, not thrilled with the chevron thing, but overall like it. waiting on the 2nd/3rd to see if i get one this year, though . suppose I'll have moved to the Land of Richarlison well before they are revealed, let alone with a safe amount of time to have one delivered to the US...

    Confirmed Signing Niels Nkounkou

    welcome to Le Bleus. Hopefully someone we can develop over the next couple years to provide Digne cover.

    Hope they just make 2 quality kits each year, the Royal Blue and as long as one of the other two looks great. Only reason I care about who makes it is availability in SA. Nike, Adidas, Puma all have their own shops and you can get local and many Euro teams kits at their shops. Needless to...

    What did Ancelotti really say to Referee Kavanagh?

    My Uncle reffed professionally in Australia for some years, did some int'l matches as well. He's an "American" who moved there in the 70s, so don't think he has any vested interest in English clubs. If i could get a vid of the whole sequence, would send it to him for his take.

    Everton and VAR

    Of course not. It's March and still not a single PK for Everton. Not a betting man, but actually want to put a fat load of cash on the Blues going the season without a single PK in league play. Meanwhile seen Jags given a red and four match vacation for less.

    Match Thread Everton v Manchester United - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    the league is just a joke. sorry. honestly pretty much done with the prem at this point. not worth the time or aggravation. bad enough when the Blues go all Everton and snatch defeat (or draws) from the jaws of victory, but too often just horrid officiating.

    Speedo Mick

    Men In Blazers did a short bit on him this week I think (saw a promo on facebook) so hopefully some dollars will come pouring in.

    Europa League

    all for it. our injured will be healthy(hopefully) and we can give some of the young players more experience. additional revenue would be swell as well.
