    Next Season 2022-23

    Everton Players in Ireland team v Netherlands 1-1

    James McCarthy was "rested" but should be in the squad for France. MON tried out quite a number of fringe players. From a Blue point of view, you may be interested in the ratings from RTE: Seamus Coleman 7 Drove forward with his usual intent and intelligence. Did his primary duty as full-back...

    Gibson and Trapp

    I have to say I am with Gibbo on this - it was sickening the way he was left on the bench during the Euros particularly given the terrible performances by the team in all three matches. He pulled out before Saturday's match with WBA, so he probably would not have been fit as things turned...
