    Old Everton Pictures

    iirc, there was a team in the Belfast area too, back in the day...1880-ish, their Chairman or whatever was instrumental in having an official penalty spot as part of the pitch. Theres also a tiny village of Everton in Bedfordshire, I played against a team called Gamlingay from there and also a...

    2018/19 Andre Gomes

    Its not about 'out bidding' anybody, its about getting value for money. £18M is a fair opener, but I wouldnt go a penny over £25M. If Gomes want the bright lights of London we would have to really load on the wages and maybe the fee too...Barca don't really care where he goes just as long as he...

    Engages sarcastic font; yeah but The Liver Buildings were Blue over Christmas...we don't care what the rs say etc. You do make some interesting points though - we can't exist in a 'transitional' / 'sleeping giant with heaps of potential' state forever (or can we?) Can't always be having 'jam...

    What kind of forward we need?

    Pretty much this...and you never know, it might just be him. Our options are spend many millions or get lucky and sometimes when you do the spend bit you still have to fet lucky

    How was Gylfi Sigurdsson's Goal V Leicester not even nominated for goal of the season

    2018/19 Leighton Baines

    A piece of paper eh Must know what he's doing then. Let him, all of them, whoever they are, however 'big' their reputation was...stress on the was, coach somewhere else, make their mistakes on somebody elses dime. And if they show promise, then let them apply for any vacancy that might arise and...

    Why? Because he's Baines? Or because he's got coaching badges, acumen, experience.

    Do we need an Everton 'heart' within the side?

    Players come in, players move on...sometimes before they should, mostly on cue, but recently they linger too long. You want 'Everton' players? Me too...as long as the 'Everton' in that is spelt W.I.N.N.E.R.

    When I die that's the Goodison I will go to, with 2 square clocks, the semi circles behind the goals (chords actually, from the latin for bow string) and Alan Ball will be forever ripping the rs a new one on a sunny August bank holiday Saturday.

    Later than 1 Later than 1966-67. They had red sleeves that season. I'd go with 72-ish based on the length of Westy's hair

    Joey mate, I think you're so off course on that. It was all Revie. Collins didn't have to play the faux hard man like all the other usual suspects - he was hard. He just played his natural hard game, but within the rules and ethos of the day. It was all the other Revie sycopants, yes men and...
