    Carabao Cup 2018/19

    So the second round of fixtures took place tonight. We’ve seen three Premier League sides exit the competition at the first hurdle and we obviously are yet to play (facing Rotherham tomorrow). Here are the remaining teams following tonight’s results: Blackburn Burton Blackpool Derby...

    Top Six versus Everton: Player by Player

    I just read a comment on another thread about how none of our players would be good enough for any of the top six sides and it got me thinking. For the purposes of this, I've simplified the formations (e.g. I'm aware that Chelsea play with a back three) and have rather picked the best players...

    Squad

    In a couple of press conferences recently, Sam has mentioned our "massive 31-man squad", then today levelled it as a concern even increasing it to a 32-man squad in his words! I can only think of 31; am I missing anyone? 1. Pickford 2. Joel 3. Stekelenburg 4. Coleman 5. Kenny 6. Martina 7...

    QUICK POLL: New Manager (International Break)

    Now it seems as though Unsworth has had his "audition", who do you think will become Everton manager? No need for reasons, just vote. Mods: just created this because some of the favourites aren't on the other poll. However, please feel free to merge.

    Ball Possession, Pressing and Productivity

    Ball Possession, Pressing, Productivity Three Koeman buzzwords that allude to his preferred style of play, yet none of which we have seen Everton excel in this season. So why isn't it working? Let's look at each in turn. * Ball Possession Rarely a post-match interview goes by without Koeman...

    The Midfield

    We're edging closer to the start of the season and I thought it'd be worthwhile taking a look at the obvious conundrum that Koeman faces in this area of the park. Even when he first arrived, Koeman voiced his intentions of addressing the midfield area. The manager has so far looked to...

    The Summer "War Chest"

    So the window has been and gone. There is an even split of us Blues with one half thinking we've missed a trick by not bringing in that elusive CM cover and the other half thinking McGeady & Traore > Heitinga & Jelavic. Personally, I'm a little from Column A, a little from Column B...

    Play Jelavic v QPR?

    As the thread title suggests, do we play Jelavic against QPR? Reasons For + It gives Lukaku a much needed rest. + He's due a goal. (Surely?!) + If he scores a brace, it might just add a bit to his valuation. Reasons Against + He's horrendous and hasn't scored in yonks. +...

    Money

    Ok, we just heard confirmation that the McCarthy deal WAS NOT dependent on player sales. Therefore, we had £13m to spend BEFORE player sales. We have just sold Fellaini and Anichebe for a total of £32.5m! Factoring in the loan fees (£1m for Barry, £3m for Lukaku reported), means we should...

    New Badge/ Shirt Sales- Poll

    OK I know we already have a thread for the supposed new badge, but I thought it'd be interesting to discuss how the decision may affect shirt sales and therefore our revenue. I would add also that my work colleague (also a massive Blue) has it on extremely good authority that the new badge...
