Ted Sagar

Frank Byrne
Posted 25/01/2021

I was interested in the appearance record for this late great goalkeeper and recall seeing him in his final days at Wolves. My father took me to Wolves to see my first ever game, and I’m pretty sure that it was a reserve team, Central League game a...

Two games in hand or the points in the bag?

Bobby Mallon
Posted 21/01/2021

After last night’s round of games, we sit 6th with two games in hand over Man Utd and Leicester City and a game in hand over Man City and Liverpool. Is having two games in hand a good thing or would we have been better off with the points?

I w...

A suitable role for ex-players

Robert Williams
Posted 17/01/2021

I have just read that Marcel Brands is suggesting that the club should start recruiting more ex-players into coaching positions. Various names have been mentioned including Neville Southall, Paul Gasgoine, Phil Jagielka and others.

Not long ag...

Grey Day for Dancing with Wolves

George  McKane
Posted 10/01/2021

It's a grey Sunday morning here in New Brighton... there is a magpie on the roof opposite, just sitting and looking out towards The City and The River, all grey, no lights but a pale blue on the side of one of the larger building near the waterfront...

Are we nearly there yet?

Andy Crooks
Posted 02/01/2021

I enjoy and admire the articles posted by Paul "the Esk"... but I find them a bit scary; we rely on Mr Moshiri and he needs Champions League football. Can Carlo deliver it? Perhaps, with a huge amount of luck. Luck beyond anything we have ever ha...

The Curious Case of Gylfi Sigurdsson

Kevin Prytherch
Posted 01/01/2021

Gylfi Sigurdsson is undoubtedly a player who can drive opinions. He can be the catalyst for excellent team performances, then he can completely anonymous the next game. A deserved captain one game, a perennial finger pointer the next. Just what is it...

PGMOL's merit table is another factor behind the PL's uneven playing field

Lyndon Lloyd
Posted 28/12/2020

As if they needed it, there is extra incentive for Everton to maintain their push to join the Premier League’s elite: to get more of their matches officiated by the top flight’s best referees and assistants.

As Daniel Taylor Read

All I want for Christmas...

Peter Rogers
Posted 27/12/2020

So, 15 games in, not quite the half-way point, and we sit 2nd in the Premier League, 2 points behind Liverpool. We have a lengthy injury list and some players are also starting to look tired... so, as a belated Christmas present, what or who should b...

Happy Christmas

Andy Crooks
Posted 25/12/2020

Just thought as it is Christmas Day – time to be reflective. Thanks to Michael and Lyndon for providing a forum that has for more than 20 years been a positive part of my life.

I have met and become friends with wonderful people who have made m...

Victorian Society on Bramley-Moore Dock

Michael Coffey
Posted 24/12/2020

The latest edition of the Victorian Society’s magazine sets out this influential organisation’s position on Everton's Bramley-Moore Dock proposals. Their conclusions hint that the heritage and conservation community’s view on the plans are l...

52 Weeks Later

Kieran Kinsella
Posted 18/12/2020

Almost a year to the day since our last home match versus the Arsenal, we find ourselves on the same trajectory. That game on 21 December 2019 saw new managers for both teams sitting in the stands watching interim coaches go head-to-head.

Tony  Everan

We talk about fitness, energy, desire, motivation and commitment week after week on ToffeeWeb. Strip out talent altogether and just think about these basic fundamentals of being a successful football player. Also, what every successful club bar none ...

The booing of the knee

John Burns
Posted 06/12/2020

When the Premier League restarted, and the players continued to take the knee I thought it might be a bad idea. I was right for once when I told the wife once fans returned, the booing will start.

Not all fans, of course, but from Millwall suppo...

Carlo's Time To Go?

Kieran Kinsella
Posted 30/11/2020

He is running on empty, picking up a fat paycheck and riding on past glories. The team has gone backwards in the year he has been here. His attack is reliant on one player. He is a nice guy but his team has no shape or style. He wasted a lot of mo...

January Window

Robert  Tressell
Posted 26/11/2020

The recent bump in our season has prompted a lot of talk about improving the squad. Towards the end of the summer window, we looked well placed. Indeed we've shown repeatedly that our fully fit first 11 is excellent. Capable of great football and ...

VAR and the Liverpool

Gerry Killen
Posted 20/11/2020

VAR referee David Coote is being stood down from refereeing Liverpool's next game because he didn't advise the referee to give a red card to Jordan Pickford for that tackle on Virgil van Dijk.

This is a Kangaroo Court by a bunch of Redneck...

Which Premier League Team has impressed you the most so far this season?

Ajay Gopal
Posted 12/11/2020

We are eight games into the season, and we have had five league leaders so far. This season could turn out to be one of the most evenly contested seasons in many a year. After a promising beginning, which now seems like a distant memory, we have s...

Who made you go “Wow”?

Andy Crooks
Posted 05/11/2020

Duncan Mackenzie... yeah, he did it for me.

He had everything that didn't matter. Did he protect the defence? No fucking way. Did he run himself into the ground? Nah.

He was a statement, that we signed who we liked. Him and B...

Posted 02/11/2020

I've been an Everton supporter from a lad and I'm 75 and I've seen some great teams over the years. I had a season ticket for well over 18 years till I moved from Liverpool to live in Newcastle 40 years ago. I'm very frustrated over the recent years ...
