Swansea moved five points off the bottom three thanks to a Jordan Ayew goal in a home draw with Everton. Swansea moved five points off the bottom three thanks to a Jordan Ayew goal in a home draw with Everton. A wide-ranging survey sent by Everton to supporters caused quite the frenzy since its release on Tuesday. Topics ranged from media portrayal of Everton to reasons for supporting the club, touching on the role played by international supporters. These surveys are commonplace as Everton often seek the views of fans but this one has attracted attention due to questions relating to the direction of the club and matters on the pitch. Each question needed a rating from 0 to 10, with 0 signalling...

Wayne Rooney, Everton lack ambition, creativity again vs. Swansea

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 03:51:00 PDT

Swansea moved five points off the bottom three thanks to a Jordan Ayew goal in a home draw with Everton. Swansea moved five points off the bottom three thanks to a Jordan Ayew goal in a home draw with Everton. A campaign that began with genuine hopes of progress is instead ending with Everton manager Sam Allardyce lauding the mediocre, describing a 1-1 draw at Swansea on Saturday as a "great point." This pitiful embrace of mediocrity is turning a storied club into an irrelevance. There is no scenario in which settling for a point against the team fourth from bottom in the league is acceptable. Yet here was Allardyce going one step further and actively protecting a point, introducing centre-back Ramiro...

Everton plod toward finish line but need to experiment if things are to change

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 05:30:00 PDT

Everton's Sam Allardyce addresses questions about Wayne Rooney's reaction to being substituted. Despite the best efforts of Everton personnel trying to suggest otherwise this week, this season has been going through the motions for a while and most supporters cannot wait for it to end. The trip to relegation-threatened Swansea on Saturday marks the start of the last five games. Winning those matches would at least end the season on a positive note, and there should certainly be nothing to fear from five opponents all sitting below Everton in the Premier League table. Back-to-back home games...

Wayne Rooney a derby disappointment as cowardly Everton draw a blank

Sun, 8 Apr 2018 07:38:00 PDT

Everton's Sam Allardyce addresses questions about Wayne Rooney's reaction to being substituted. Everton's Wayne Rooney was visibly upset after being subbed off midway through the second half of the Merseyside Derby. Jordan Pickford and Loris Karius each explain their key saves that preserved a goalless draw in the Merseyside derby. Everton remain without a Merseyside derby win since 2010 after playing out a tame goalless draw with Liverpool. English Premier League: Seamus Coleman (87') Everton 0-0 Liverpool The only thing more disappointing than not beating a weakened Liverpool team was Everton spending most of the first 75 minutes not even trying to beat them as a drab Merseyside derby ended 0-0 on Saturday. For too much of the match Everton played once more like a team just happy to survive, showing none of the intent needed to halt a winless derby run that now stands at 17 matches in all competitions. Everton spent those first 75 minutes waiting for Liverpool to beat them, affording the visitors...

Dominic Solanke fails to fire in Mo Salah's absence as Liverpool frustrated by Everton

Sat, 7 Apr 2018 06:29:00 PDT

Everton remain without a Merseyside derby win since 2010 after playing out a tame goalless draw with Liverpool. Everton's Wayne Rooney was visibly upset after being subbed off midway through the second half of the Merseyside Derby. Everton's Sam Allardyce addresses questions about Wayne Rooney's reaction to being substituted. Jordan Pickford and Loris Karius each explain their key saves that preserved a goalless draw in the Merseyside derby. LIVERPOOL, England -- Three points on Everton 0-0 Liverpool at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. 1. Derby day frustration Merseyside derby No. 231 will not live long in the memory. The point earned in this dull draw helped Liverpool maintain their standing in the top four, while it further strengthened Everton supporters' case that Sam Allardyce is not the man to take their football club forward. The build-up to the game had never been more low-key -- and there were very...

Everton look beaten by Liverpool before a Merseyside derby ball is kicked

Thu, 5 Apr 2018 06:06:00 PDT

Sam Allardyce's Everton have been woeful in the Merseyside derby in recent years as rampant Liverpool visit Goodison Park. Liverpool's 3-0 dismantling of Manchester City in the Champions League just days after City did the same thing to Everton in the Premier League will have done little to lift the gloom encircling Goodison Park ahead of the Merseyside Derby on Saturday. Derby build-up often follows a familiar pattern as various Everton personnel discuss the commitment and courage needed to win before invariably showing little to none of both on the day and leaving supporters lamenting another derby failure. Amid the...

Everton losing Double to Liverpool in 1986 no match for current woes

Thu, 5 Apr 2018 12:46:00 PDT

Liverpool's stunning double in 1986 came at Everton's expense in dramatic fashion. The mood is grim at Goodison Park these days, with Everton drifting aimlessly towards the end of the season under Sam Allardyce. The last thing the team (and fans) need is a home match against an upbeat and improving Liverpool. No matter what the result is in the Merseyside derby, Everton's players can console themselves that they will never suffer the indignities imposed on one of Goodison's greatest teams. What the Everton players had to go through after the 1986 FA Cup final was one of football's...

Liverpool trump Everton in direction, identity and coherent thinking

Thu, 5 Apr 2018 12:41:00 PDT

Georginio Wijnaldum explains why he doesn't consider the Merseyside derby to be Liverpool's most significant match. They are separated by Stanley Park, a distance of a few hundred yards. They are also 26 points apart in the table. They have had completely contrasting experiences in continental competition this season, with Liverpool the Champions League's top scorers and still alive in the competition's quarterfinals and Everton enduring the most ignominious of Europa League campaigns and having been knocked out in the group stage. Yet when the 231st Merseyside derby kicks off on Saturday, the greatest divide...

Sam Allardyce a parody of himself as pathetic Everton outclassed by City

Sun, 1 Apr 2018 08:42:00 PDT

ESPN FC's Craig Burley delves into Man City's goals against Everton, including one in particular capped off by Gabriel Jesus. Manchester City moved within one win of the Premier League title by making easy work of Everton at Goodison Park. Even accounting for the excellence of a Manchester City side marching toward the Premier League title with games to spare, the Everton display in Saturday's 3-1 home defeat was pathetic in every sense of the word. Manager Sam Allardyce has become a parody of himself, as the more he tries to defend his style of play, the worse it becomes. Under his guidance Everton have twice set club-records for lowest possession as 18 percent in this match eclipsed the 21 percent recorded in the Anfield derby in...

Man City make light work of Everton, can clinch title in Manchester derby

Sat, 31 Mar 2018 11:42:00 PDT

Manchester City moved within one win of the Premier League title by making easy work of Everton at Goodison Park. ESPN FC's Craig Burley delves into Man City's goals against Everton, including one in particular capped off by Gabriel Jesus. Pep Guardiola speaks of just how proud he is of his Man City side as they are now only one win away from the Premier League title. LIVERPOOL, England -- Three thoughts from Goodison Park on Manchester City's 3-1 win over Everton in the Premier League. 1. Man City right back to business Pep Guardiola can clinch his first Premier League title with a victory in next week's Manchester derby after Manchester City's thoroughly comprehensive victory over Everton. Normal service was resumed at Goodison Park, as City picked up where they left off after a three-week break without a fixture to maintain their 16-point lead at the...

Everton optimism has faded but they must compete against Man City

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 05:00:00 PDT

Watch Everton put 44-year-old Chris Jones through his paces to find out if he's ready for a Premier League contract. Everton handed Pep Guardiola the heaviest league defeat of his managerial career when Manchester City last visited Goodison Park in January 2017, but much has changed since that emphatic 4-0 win. While City need only two wins to confirm their stroll toward an impressive Premier League title, the optimism encircling the Toffees 14 months ago has mostly faded. On a day when teenagers Tom Davies and Ademola Lookman scored their first goals for the club, the resounding 4-0 victory arrived amid a nine-game...

Cenk Tosun's form building at Everton with another solid 8/10 performance

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 10:01:00 PDT

An in-form Cenk Tosun inspired Everton to only their second away win in 24 attempts, with a 2-1 result against Stoke City on Saturday as the visitors provided their long-suffering travelling support with some overdue cheer. A little over a month on from manager Sam Allardyce's suggesting the cold weather had stopped Tosun from settling quickly, the Everton striker was in red-hot form in blizzard-like conditions with two goals. Stoke's Charlie Adam received a red card at 30 minutes, but Everton...

Everton should use Sigurdsson's injury as an opportunity

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 01:18:00 PDT

Sigurdsson's injury comes at an inopportune time but could help figure out the squad. The latest attempt to escape a continuous loop of home wins and away defeats takes Everton to relegation-threatened Stoke on Saturday. Results in the last six league games offer a microcosm of the season, with three home wins and three away defeats. Positives from home games disappear when the next away match rolls around as Everton struggle to replicate their Goodison form on their travels. No clean sheets on the road since December helps explain how the Toffees have won just one of their last...

Everton target Jack Wilshere and Jamie Vardy for summer rebuild

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 07:05:00 PDT

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner takes a look at the latest transfer rumours surrounding the likes of Jack Wilshere, Emre Can, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and more. Clubs are slowly turning their eyes toward the summer window, and Transfer Talk has the updates on all the latest rumours. Everton enter Wilshere race Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is in demand, with the Mail reporting that Everton are in the hunt as his contract stalemate with Arsenal continues. It says the Toffees are ready to make "a lucrative move" for the England international if his situation in North London is not resolved. The Merseysiders "will offer a big signing-on bonus and a deal...

Leighton Baines return vs. Brighton a boost for beleaguered Everton

Sun, 11 Mar 2018 05:50:00 PDT

Everton ended Brighton's strong run of form, as Cenk Tosun scored his first home goal for the Toffees. English Premier League: Cenk Tosun (76') Everton 2-0 Brighton Home improvements continued for Everton on Saturday as a 2-0 win against Brighton secured a third successive Goodison Park victory and offered much-needed respite after successive away defeats. After an uneventful opening hour in which Everton bossed possession but created little and appeared to be running out of ideas, this mundane affair caught fire in a closing 30-minute spell producing two goals, a Brighton red card and another Wayne Rooney penalty miss. A first clean sheet in 11 matches arrived...

Sam Allardyce must make Seamus Coleman captain to inspire supporters

Fri, 9 Mar 2018 04:42:00 PST

Everton and under-pressure manager Sam Allardyce are running out of time -- and matches -- in their increasingly laboured attempts to salvage something from this season. The Toffees would need to win all nine remaining league games to match the 61-point return from last season. Any illusions Allardyce might have had about the task facing him and the expectation of supporters are surely gone. His backtracking after ill-advised comparisons between Everton and some of his former clubs is testament...

Everton want Wenger to replace Allardyce if he parts ways with Arsenal

Sun, 4 Mar 2018 04:58:00 PST

Clubs are slowly turning their eyes toward the summer window, and Transfer Talk has the updates on all the latest rumours. Everton target Wenger Arsene Wenger might appear to be on his way out at Arsenal, but he's still very much a wanted man in the Premier League, according to the Daily Star. After the Gunners lost a fourth successive match -- this time a 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Sunday -- speculation continues to mount that the board will call time on Wenger's 22-year reign in the summer. However,...

Williams sent off in latest failure for Everton under Allardyce

Sat, 3 Mar 2018 01:28:00 PST

English Premier League: Ashley Williams red card (86') Burnley 2-1 Everton English Premier League: Cenk Tosun (20') Burnley 0-1 Everton Clubs needing a confidence boost in the weeks ahead will be salivating at the sight of Everton on their fixture list after Burnley, who had not won for 53 games after conceding the first goal, claimed their first victory of 2018 with a 2-1 win on Saturday. Cenk Tosun nodded home his first Everton goal to give the visitors some false hope before an attacking half-time substitution swung the game in favour of the home side. Everton and manager Sam Allardyce, on the other hand, did nothing and failure...

Pienaar's retirement reminds Everton fans how good they once had it

Thu, 1 Mar 2018 07:21:00 PST

Good things happened when Everton had Steven Pienaar roaming the midfield. Those days seem far gone now. Former Everton and South Africa midfielder Steven Pienaar announced his retirement on Wednesday, leading to an inevitable focus on his two spells on Merseyside, the legacy created by his performances, not to mention the failed attempts at progress since his departure. Along with Mikel Arteta, Pienaar stood as creator-in-chief during a David Moyes era that appears comparatively halcyon alongside the dirge currently served up on the pitch. This season has become a chore for supporters amid a sequence...
