Everton look to step up their pre-season preparations with a trip to Scotland for two games against Scottish Premier League opposition. First up is Heart of Midlothian, who are back in the top flight after a year in the Scottish Championship.

Fan article: Why Kenwright and Co are doing a good job for EFC

Where to start with this article! I think firstly it is important to clarify that I firmly believe in the clubs motto of “Nothing but the best is good enough” and that the club should be doing everything possible to regain its place back amongst the leading teams in England. 20 years without a trophy … Continue reading Fan article: Why Kenwright and Co are doing a good job for EFC

Everton's pre-season campaign kicks off at the weekend with the Blues taking a strong squad down to Wiltshire to take on Swindon Town of League One. Roberto Martinez is keen for the majority of his squad to get some action following a good weeks training at Finch Farm.

Petty propaganda a threat to anti-board campaign

The Everton board of directors have dominated the Twittersphere during the summer break and with feelings running high the owners of our great club are unlikely to be let off the hook anytime soon. This article isn’t however going to focus on the rights or wrongs of the current board (that is to come in … Continue reading Petty propaganda a threat to anti-board campaign

Ramblings of a frustrated (yet positive) Blue

At times last night the frustration of watching a team clearly out of form got the better of me, as it did thousands alongside me at Goodison. Importantly the mental resolve of the team remains strong and despite playing considerably below their potential, Everton were far too strong for a very poor Queens Park Rangers … Continue reading Ramblings of a frustrated (yet positive) Blue

A gift from the Gods

Roberto Martinez has described Samuel Eto’o as a gift from the footballing gods, and you would certainly struggle to find an Evertonian who doesn’t agree with the managers gushing statement. Eto’o has been simply sensational in an Everton shirt, his performance on Sunday away at Burnley was world class, linking Everton’s attacking play brilliantly from … Continue reading A gift from the Gods

Obstructed View – WBA (A)

Well, that's a relief. A win and a clean sheet, but in our 4th game of the season, sets us up properly to a mean couple of weeks with Wolfsburg, Palace, Swansea and Liverpool all to follow between now and the end of the month. And of course there is little let up in early … Continue reading Obstructed View – WBA (A)

Obstructed View – Reflections on Chelsea (H)

I'm not really sure where to go with this article. A lot has been said already in the media and among our own fans, so it's quite hard to come up with a novel angle for the nightmare that was Everton 3 (and I wish I could just stop there, but....) Chelsea 6. Let's see … Continue reading Obstructed View – Reflections on Chelsea (H)

Eto’o will improve Everton

The pending signing of Samuel Eto'o has certainly divided opinion among the supporter base, but what is for certain, Everton are on the verge of signing one of the great Centre Forwards of the last decade. Quick and powerful, with a wonderful eye for goal, Eto'o has enjoyed a golden career, with success both at … Continue reading Eto’o will improve Everton

Obstructed View – Arsenal (H)

A view of this game 'partially' obscured by 1640 miles and a hop, skip and a jump over the channel, an erratic and probably illegal live feed, and the dulcet tones of a TalkSport tune-in app live commentary that frequently froze, made a refreshing change from my normal pillar getting in the way in the … Continue reading Obstructed View – Arsenal (H)
