Positive end to season sets up summer of intrigue

A positive end to a poor campaign then, but the performance of the younger players certainly offers hope as we head into an intriguing summer with a new manager to arrive and surely several players both coming and going.

A frightening insight into life without Lukaku

Despite a few uncomfortable moments from Bournemouth, we got over the line with three points. We've survived!

It's never us

It was truly gutting and the team didn't deserve that. Everton out. "It's never us" said Ste at full time. I couldn't put it better. We never fluke these things. We never fluke anything.

I hoped I'd regret driving

It says something when you get home and you're actually relieved you didn't lose by more than four. I genuinely expected to find we'd lost by five or six.

Divisions in the camp?

It was quite a turgid encounter from the start really. I guess you can accept a little rustiness when that many changes are made to the team but we really struggled to put anything meaningful together throughout, whilst Southampton passed up a plethora of chances.

Wenger masterclass outfoxes clueless Martinez

Goodison Park has been a fortress time and again over the years and to win only four at Goodison Park this season, with an abysmal EIGHT defeats is just woeful, especially with the players we have.

Everton lose in the most 'Everton' way possible

This nonsense is happening far too regularly now and has to be stopped one way or the other.
by Paul Traill : 06/03/2016

A sorry end to an era at Villa Park

Hardly a vintage Everton performance, though I'm pretty sure we took our foot off the gas at 2-0.

Roberto and his subs

Playing against a West Brom team performing poorly at home, what could go wrong? "This is Everton" I said... "We always mess things up just when things are looking rosy". And so it proved.

A big three points

What a great way to finish a game and the players should be buzzing as we head to the Britannia on Saturday. A win there and who knows, maybe we could salvage something from the league this season yet.
by Paul Traill : 04/02/2016

Yet another bitter pill to swallow

The better team won, no doubt about that, but we'll never know what would have happened, but it's Martin Atkinson and we shouldn't be at all surprised.
by Paul Traill : 28/01/2016

Knives are sharpening for Roberto

Three home wins all season and only six overall wins tells it's own story. Time and time again we shoot ourselves in the foot. Time and time again we let ourselves down.

Everything that could have gone wrong...

Paul reports from what he saw of the match at the Etihad after getting caught in the traffic jams on the M62.

Comfortable Everton into the Fourth Round

I'm glad Roberto Martinez did the fans justice by resting the correct players, whilst still giving much-needed game time to some of the fringe players, and also accommodating a couple of younger players. The perfect balance found from Roberto.
by Paul Traill : 10/01/2016

Brilliant Everton edge closer to silverware

We head to the Etihad knowing what we have to do, and what a chance to get to Wembley. What a chance to win a trophy. Bring it home Everton. It's been far too long.
by Paul Traill : 07/01/2016

More frustration at Goodison Park

Another frustrating draw in this maddeningly frustrating season, though performances similar to that of the second half against Manchester City will more than give us a chance of progressing to the Capital One cup final.
by Paul Traill : 03/01/2016

Yet more exasperation at Goodison Park

Poor defending cost us yet again and this will go down as yet another game we should have got more from this season and let slip away.
by Paul Traill : 28/12/2015

Charitable Everton provide unwanted festive deja vu

It's Roberto's inability to learn and stubbornness with team selections which kills me the most. We've one heck of a squad there and it's not being utilised, instead the same players are being selected week in-week out.
by Paul Traill : 19/12/2015

Any chance of a sub, Roberto?

Our corners are so bad it's almost laughable. What isn't almost laughable is Roberto Martinez' continued insistence on not making substitutes when it's clear they are needed.
by Paul Traill : 07/12/2015

Excellent Everton destroy pitiful Villa

A great win which puts us into seventh place as we march on to Bournemouth.
by Paul Traill : 21/11/2015

One for the boss upstairs

Despite a dreadful opening 20 minutes or so the match really entertained and we were treated to some excellent goals.

So much for my wedding gift

Match Report: Everton 1 - 1 Liverpool
by Paul Traill : 04/10/2015

It's all about the Nais!

An amazing performance from Everton and a richly deserved win. This was surely Roberto Martinez’ finest hour as Everton manager.
by Paul Traill : 12/09/2015

We've Learnt Nothing!

We desperately need to embrace other styles of play. We are far too easy to play against and, given the fixtures ahead, we could be in for some bumpy ride.
by Paul Traill : 09/08/2015

Tough test for the kids

Paul was at Elland Road to see a young side beaten 2-0 by Leeds.

Big Dunc fanfare masks deep team concerns

It’s apparent that not a lot seems to have been learnt from last season. We’re still over-passing the ball. We’re not shooting on opportunity. Though perhaps most worrying of all was the alarming regularity that Villarreal were able to cut through us and create opportunities.
