Post West Ham Reflections


Sometimes there is a game and a performance that is best forgotten. For Silva and the Everton players I would suggest they will try to omit the game from their memory and not dwell on it too far. While the following will frustrate many fans, for the most part it is a game that is atypical of our season to date.

Silva bemoans lack of finishing


Marco Silva reckons Everton had to score more from the chances they created in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham.
Silva said: “We didn’t perform on a level to win this match, it is clear and I have told our players as well, at this level you cannot make the mistakes we made.
“When you create chances like we did you have to score.

Andy Gray Slams Cenk Tosun as “Not good enough”


Everton legend Andy Gray his reaffirmed his belief that Cenk Tosun isn’t good enough for Everton.
Speaking following Everton’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham at Goodison Park, Andy Gray spoke of the number of players missing from Marco Silva’s squad, but
Gray: “What Marco Silva needs is to have every player he’s got, available.
“Andre Gomes, we’ve not seen. Bernard, we’ve only seen a glimpse of him today. Yerry Mina, not seen him. Richarlison has been suspended for three games.

So far, so good


Usually the first international break of the season would be greeted with disdain and annoyance, we suffer a long arduous summer then squeeze in just four Premier League games, plus a Carabao Cup tie, before we pause but maybe this time the feeling is different.
Although the season is a mere five games old, it seems to have taken its toll on the squad. The excitement of a mouthwatering transfer deadline day has now simmered somewhat, largely owing to a crippling and growing injury list.

The Tolerance of Inconsistency


Rationality and supporting a football club rarely go hand in hand. In fact, there are few things in life that make us so inured to objective thinking as being a fan. We catastrophize, and then in a blink of an eye are prone to insane levels of optimism. We castigate players for the most minor of mistakes and then lionise them for doing something right.

Everton Mishmash – The History of Everton Football Club in One Image


After six months, 30,000 suggestions and 750 hours of illustrating hours…the Everton Mishmash is complete!
In April, we commissioned illustrator Alex Bennett to work with Everton fans across our platform to illustrate all their favourite, treasured moments into one design.
From derby days to cup triumphs, to when Muhammad Ali shadow boxed with Everton fans in Hyde Park – we used all our platforms to invite Evertonians to provide their favourite Everton moments.

Edward ‘Ted’ Sagar


Ted Sagar spent 24 years at Everton, played 497 games, won three major trophies and was the first man to wear a number one shirt in England. The main reason for Sagar’s reputation amongst Evertonians is due to the longevity of his Goodison career. His 463 League appearances from 1929-1953 has only been surpassed by Neville Southall’s 578 League games. However, it is unfair to say that the only reason that Sagar is an Everton legend is because he played so many games.

Assessing the Initial Start


I’ve long felt the international break comes at an inopportune moment for most football spectators. England’s recent success at the World Cup has not changed my mind on that. It feels like you are just getting into the momentum of the new season and suddenly 2 weeks without football feels a long void.

GOT Player of the Month – August 2018


Following a largely abject pre-season, Marcel Brands and Marco Silva oversaw a flurry of late transfer window activity. A number of departures eased the pressure on the wage bill but more importantly, a number of arrivals boosted the thinned out squad to hopefully add some much needed quality.
Just the four games in August to get the season underway and Everton went unbeaten in three Premier League encounters and overcame the first hurdle in the Carabao Cup.
