The Value of Demarai Gray's goals

Trevor Powell
Posted 17/09/2021

In 2014, ran an article, 'Premier League Goals Worth £915k each last season ...' in which they estimated the financial value of a Premier League goal in financial terms.

The formula totalled all PL central f...

Time to Fight back?

Larry O’Hara
Posted 05/09/2021

I have often read comments on ToffeeWeb about how Everton FC are being erased from history. I regularly oscillate between fury and amazement and the never-ending slurry of pro-LFC propaganda on the BBC website especially.

While the BBC rigorously...

Buried treasure

Tony  Everan
Posted 03/09/2021

A bit of a diversion for the international break.

Last week, on a holiday in the Cotswolds, the owner of the property was recently having a clear-out of his loft. He discovered a near 50-year-old football programme under a big box of tat. Learnin...

What's left on the shelf?

Robert Tressell
Posted 26/08/2021

What’s left on the shelf?

The transfer window closes at 11pm on Tuesday 31st August. Kean, Rodriguez and others remain on our books. The much needed right back and reinforcements are not.

So, with a lot of our reported targets now s...

Is Financial Fair Play just for us?

Clive Rogers
Posted 25/08/2021

I have submitted a few articles to ToffeeWeb and often contemplated others, but I have always decided not to bother if I felt I did not have the necessary depth of knowledge of the subject. In this instance, I know I don’t have the depth of knowled...

Who is the best signing we ever made?

Andy Crooks
Posted 18/08/2021

It's all about luck really. Finding the right man, who comes in and all falls into place. I would put Peter Reid and Andy Gray in that category. Their signings were an alignment of fortune that has never touched us again.

Seamus Coleman was ...

Change or No Change?

Tony McDonald
Posted 16/08/2021

Travelling to Goodison Park for the match on Saturday, I pondered on change. A new manager, a new season. Change for the sake of it? Or change for the better?

The first change I didn’t like is that my parking of choice in the car park of t...

Mugs Away 2

Eugene Ruane
Posted 10/08/2021

11 years ago, I wrote this piece for ToffeeWeb just before the first game of the season 2010-11.

It wasn’t a particularly illuminating piece and actually seems to be mainly moaning, ventin...

(All we are saying, is) Give Raf a chance!

Frank Wolfe
Posted 09/08/2021

We are less than a week out from the season start and I think most Everton fans would be viewing that with some trepidation. Our recent friendly, 'low key' transfer activity, questions marks over a number of players, and our financial position, de...

Happy Birthday, Mr Bingham

Colin Glassar
Posted 05/08/2021

Former Everton manager Billy Bingham is celebrating his 90th birthday. So happy birthday Billy.

Billy took over the reins from a physically and mentally depleted Harry Catterick despite the fans’ wish for Don Revie, Bobby Robson or Brian Clough...

Who’s back at Finch Farm

David Cooper
Posted 15/07/2021

With just 10 days to our first pre-season game in the USA against Millinaros, I have been trying to work out who is back at Finch Farm. This who I think I have seen on the YouTube Everton channel:

What's in it for Rafa?

Andy Crooks
Posted 01/07/2021

Why? I suspect that there is not one Evertonian who looks at this appointment and pumps the air shouting, "Fucking Yes!"

So Rafa knows he is unwelcome. He doesn't care. Why? He doesn't need the money, so rule that out. Why? Something, deep inside h...
